▲ Straw Vote
The Weatherford Booater has
taken a straw vote on the sena-
torial race with the result large-
ly in Gore's favor. The vote
standing: for Ferris 57; for
Gore 286. The farmer vote seems
to be especially in Gore’s favor
in that community. It seems
that Freeding is not even in the
"also ran” class.
Just now as whisky gets scar*
cer than water and the old booz-
er dies hard, comes the fight
looming up over the hill like a
rising sun on tobacco, but
what a howl it raises. But the
tobacco user never thinks to re-
spect other people’s rights. He
blows his smoke where he pleas-
es and spits everwhere and
sticks his foul mouth in other
people’s faces. While it is a little
ancient history but some aged
people can remember when the
drinking man made others step
around. But there often comes
a time to even up.—Arapaho

Want Your Leases
As we try, to block a plot;
some say yes and some say not.
I am sure they want a test, just
as well aa all the rest; if they
fail to come and sign, we will all
be left hehind. Then my neigh-
bor sure will say, that I stood
in the way; not anr dtfort did I
lend; I am not what I should
have been. I am no lawyer or
physician, but my friends, this
proposition is as plain as it can
be. Sign your name and let us
see, if we get’the goods or not;
all will have an equal shot. So
sign your lease and we will
hush, to watch the drilling and
the slush. G. C. Giles.

Why Mileage Varies
A Cord Tire gives vastly greater
service than a Fabric Tire.
An oversize tire will vastly excel
a tire that is undersize. Care, load

Millers are uniform tires. That is
a major reason for their supremacy.
