While we are not politically in-
clined, still we would like to sug-
gest that everyone in the neigh-
borhood should boost and cast
their votes for Scott Ferris, as we
know him to be a very common
man, interested in the common
welfare of the common people of
the state of Oklahoma. He once
did a personal favor for the writ-
ers father, years ago when first
in office, and we earnestly think
that he would be of invaluable
service to the common people if

The prediction of myself and
other Health Officials is now a
partial reality and the scourge of
last year, although in milder form,
both in seriousness of attack and
the number of cases, now stalks
abroad in the land. The death
rate is very decidedly smaller
than that of last winter in propor-
tion to the number of cases, and
fatalities have only occurred
where the patient was in a debi-
litated and poor physical condi-
tion when attacked.
The history of medicine shows
that each recurrence of a disease
is uj milder form, and that epi-
demics are the punishment in-
flic ed bv nature ler violation of
lur immutable laws.
There is ically no cause for
alarm at this time as reports from
over the state are to the effect
that the situation is now well in
hand; however, precautions are
always wise and necessary. While
science does not know all the ef-
fects of fear, worry and anxiety
on the chemicals of the system,
yet it has been definitely estab-
lished that these conditions of
mind are very potent factors
in lessening bodily resistance to
disease. I would therefore urge
that everyone strive tq be calm
and cool and take such precau-
tions as keeping the body well
clothed and warm; circulating a
Dlcntifui supply of fresh air in
the home, theaters, street cars etc,;
eating sufficient nourishing food
of a plain wholesome variety;
keeping the body clean, aud con

Cas of a cold. Realizing the im
poi lance of iresh air aud sanita-
tion in coping with influenza, I
have recently issued a ruling re
quiring all public places where
people assemble to be disinfected
and maintained in a sanitary
Newspaper reports indicate
that this disease is appearing in
widely separated places and that
health authorities are alive to the
situation and using every pyecaq-
tion to prevent its spread, Jt
therefore behooves us as indi-
viduals to be vigilant in taking a
little extra care of our h^Lu -a
this particular time.
IS TO BE INCORPORATED
A number of farmers and busi-
ness men met in the Mason.c
hall Saturday, January 31, for the

der and Dan Deal of the A. & M.
college at Stillwater as to the
purpose of the meeting, a motion
was carried to organize and in-
corporate for $30,000.
The meeting was adjourned to
meet Saturday, February 7, at
