Ex-Governor Haskell Speaks.
Ex-Governor Haskell spoke to
a large and enthusiastic audience
of Harper county citizens lieie
Friday morning. The Governor's
address was well received, as
many things were explained by
him which our people never un-
derstood thoroughly, and which
were of much interest to the cit-
He spoke at great length and
his many hearers never wearied.
He declared that this was a pro-
gressive age and that the great
state of Oklahoma needed a sen-
ator who would serve the people
and not his individual self. He
scored his opponent’s five-year
senatorship and referred to his
own record as a servant of the
people, and asked if what he had
done for Oklahoma wasn’t wor-
thy of the people’s recognition.
The Governor was accompan-
ied by Mrs. Haskell who made
many lady acquaintances while
here, and from what we can hear
the Governor made himself a
good number of votes.
He went from here to Gate,
where he addressed the people
in the evening.
On Tuesday, July 16th, 1912,
at high noon, at the home of the
bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.
T. Hoy, in this city, occurred the
wedding of Miss Ethel Saguache
Hoy to Cyrus C. Vice, of La-
The wedding ceremony was
performed by Rev. J.G. McNutt,
pastor of the Christian church,
in the presence of only the im-
mediate relatives and a few inti-
The bride has been one of our
county’s successful teachers and
has the best wishes of a large
circle of Buffalo friends for a
most happy future.
The newly wedded couple will
be at home after August 1st at
Fine rain Tuesday night.

The sentiment in favor of C.
W. Hofmeister for county attor-
ney is growing very rapidly.
Everyone appreciates the fact
that Mr. Hofmeister is well in-
formed in law and is a lawyer of
good judgment and, above all
things, is absolutely honest, and
j whatever he does will be done
because it is right and not for
the purpose of gaining political
preferment. Mr. Hofmeister, if
elected, would have no ambition
to make a reputation at the ex-
pense of the tax-payers and lie
would not arrest every person
against whom a suggestion had
been made that he bad violated
the law without hope of success

may “make a speech.” In these

The Mistakes of Life.
Some one has condensed the
mistakes of life and arrived at
the conclusion that there are
fourteen of them. Most people
would say. if they told the truth
that there were no limits to the
mistakes of life; that they are
like the drops in the ocean, or
the sand of the seashore in num-
ber, but it is as well to be accur-
ate. Here, then, are fourteen
great mistakes: “It is a great
mistake to set up as your own
standard of right and wrong, and
to judge people accordingly; to
measure the enjoyment of others
by our own; to expect uniformity
of opinion in the world; to look
for judgment and experience in
youth: to endeavor to mold all
dispositions alike; to yield to
immaterial trifles; to look for
perfection in our own actions; to
worry ourselves and others with
what can’t be remedied: not to
alleviate all that needs allevia-
tion so f&r as lies in our power;
not to make allowances for the
infirmities of others; to consider
everything impossible that we
cannot perform; to believe only
what our finite minds can grasp;

At the residence of Mr. and
Mrs. James VanCampen, north-
west of Buffalo, on Sunday, July
14, 1912, their daughter, Hattie
E., was united in marriage with
Harry S. Vanderpool, the cere-
mony being performed at six
o’clock p. m. by the bride’s pas-
tor, Rev. William D. Drake, of
the Otter Creek Congregational
church, and witnessed by a num-
ber of relatives and friends of
the bride and groom.
After the ceremony a dainty
wedding supper was served by
the bride’s mother.
These young people have both
grown from childhood in this
vicinity and are general favor-
ites. Hattie has been for sev-
eral years a successful and pop-
ular school teacher and has many
charming traits of character that
will adorn and beautify the new
home. Harry is a successful
young farmer who meets the du-
ties of his calling with an earn-
estness that always brings good
results. In fact he is a lucky
fellow, always getting the best
of everything, which accounts
for his success in this instance.
The bride was handsomely at-
tired in white, the groom wear-
ing the conventional black.
We are told that, later, their
young friends entertained them
with an “up-to-date” charivari
which was met with due hospi-
