Dipping cattle for the pur-
pose of exterminating ticks 19 no
longer an experiment. It has
thoroughly been demonstrated
by the Federal Government and
county after county of infected
country has had the ticks eradi-
cated and has been placed north
01 the Federal Quarantine line.
Mr. Flahrity, who has charge
of the work on behalf of the
Government says that there is
absolutely no damage to the
cattle wh?re the work is properly
done. Lincoln county has lost
thousands of cattle on account of
Texas Fever and suppose two or
three cattle were kill by dipping
would the loss not be very, very
slight to what is yearly sustained
by the fever?
To get our pastures thorough-
ly cleaned and be placed out of
quarantine will require two years
but it will be worth untold thous-
ands of dollars to the farmers of
From some portions of the
county there are protests against
dipping and we are sorry to say
that the sentiment leading to tl e
protest is caused by politicians
who are always willing to sell the
prosperity of their county for a
chance to discredit their op-
ponents. Spipe of the senti-
ment is caused by cpttlo buyers
wbo for years have robbed the
farmers and who do not want to
have conditions changed and be
brought into competition with
the world, they want to have the
country remain quarantined so
that they can continue robbing.
These kind of men[?j will get

Lincoln county can be made a
veritable paradise by clearing
out the ticks, getting a better
grade of cattle, setting our wash-
ing slopes m bermuda grass, and
turning attention to dairying in-
stead of cotton raising.
Will the farmers of the county
suffer third grade, broken down
politicians and cattle robbers to
deter them from grasping the
opportunity that is now present-
ed to change conditions so that
they can make an easier living?

Our esteemed contemporary
the News-Publicist, reminds us
of that old cow.
It has done some valient work
as a booster lately, even com-
manding the admiration of us as
an opponent. We have enjoyed

administration, the News Pub
went out of its way to insult the
Governor and the Governor'9
The Pub is supposed to be of

Governor Haskell and the
democratic administration has
certainly been more than friend-
ly to Lincoln county and Chand-
ler, and whether we get the
school or not we must recognize
that we are indebted to his kind-

played bad taste and ingratitude
but in order to gratify a little
partisan feeling, showed a will-
ingness to sacrifice out chances

WILL BE A CANDIDATE
It was semi officially announc-
ed this week that J. M. Gardner
of Union Township would be a
candidate for Sheriff, subject to
the democrat primary.
Years and years ago, when ye
editor was a farmer in Union
Township, we first made the
acquaintance of John Gardner
and an intimate'friendship dur-
ing all the time since has con-
fined in our mind that he is good
material for any county office.
He has ever worked for the
upbuilding of the county and of
the democratic party. He is a
practical and prosperous farmer.
He is a man of progressive ideas
always fights for economy and
retrenchment, but does not be-
lieve in penury or stagnation.
It augers well for the party
to have such men as John Gard-
ner announcing for an important
office on the ticket.
