RED LETTER DAY
SHtnnliiN marked aiinther red let-
ter day in the rnmiiieroial world of
Apache. Fully five hundred teams
the previous Saturday lined the main
and side streets and a similar repe-
tition took plane last Saturday. Hun-
dreds of men and women thronged the
streets and stores, taking advantage
of the exeeptioiml Christmas bargains
offered by the progressive merehunts
of the town. The Xmas decorations
in the Drug Stores ore exeeptionally
artistic this year and the gifts beau-
tiful. Amphlett's talking muehine

PERIL OF GASOLINE
Another article brought in lor re-
print is the "l’eril of Gasoline” story
appearing in the Oklahoma City
Times of last week, which gives val
uable information on the handling of
gasoline. So few people realize the
highly explosive qualities of gasoline
and its ability to accumulate elec-
tricity. Electricity is developed by
the mere agitation of the gasoline or
rubbing articles in it. The following
warnings, if heeded, will undoubtedly
have the effect to save life and prop
city, and the incidental suffering
thereto: First: tinder no circum-
stances keep or use a single drop of
gasoline in your house, sheds or barn
and only that contained in the tank ot
your ear in the garage. Keep,
necessary, a -.1111111 amount in a sinal
metallic cun free from leak outside
of your buildings and at least ten
feet from mly of them. Second: D<
any cleaning out of doors a safe dis
taiiec from tlie house and never pour
gasoline into a glass china or earth-
enware dish and rub any article in
it. even cotton goods, which though
le-> dangerous than silk or wool,

cash business for the farmer,” as
u* only system where lie will reap the
cream of liis own profit. This ar-
ticle shows (lie disadvantage of the
arnier going to his merchant in the
spring and buying his year's supplies
on "fall time," which, of course,
means that his accoi i t will be car-
ried by tlje merchant until sufficient
crops have been marketed to take
care of the debts. Very often also
ihy* farmer gets cash loans of the
merchant. The great disadvantage
of this method to the farmer outside
if never knowing where he stands,
financially, is he not only pays in-
tercut on credit extended, hut also
pays a good, safe profit on the
goods purchased , which very often
arc of inferior grade owing to the
credit system. The remedy for this
ild, full time system is the local
bunker, w hose specialty is the hank-
ing business. If a man has sufficient
redit to enable bins to purchase his
supplies for a season from a mercan-
tile house, the same credit will se-
cure him the necessary loan at the
hank. Having'arranged for the nec-
essary money, he is able to pay cash
for what he buys, thus in many eases
saving a neat sum and enjoying the
added satisfaction of being indepen-
dent. which is not always the ease
when he is tied up to one store by the
credit system.—Adapted from the

much the better) and do the rubbing

There never was, and probably nev-
er will he, a pence officer that has,
or can, satisfy any considerable por-
tion of the people in the wav of law
enforcement. If the law is enforced
with rigor, though fairly, a larfcte
proportion of the people will find
fault. If the law is weakly enforc-
ed, the other proportion of the peo-
ple will find fault. This makes it
liard on the part of the officers.
Coming down to Apache people, it
is made all the more diffieult by fpr-
r officials and church members
violating the law they are supposed to
uphold. It is not meant to say they
uie boot-leggers, but they “chip in”
and make themselves parties to or-
dering whiskey and beer known not
he for family use, and when it ar-
rives, they join in with a crowd of
toughs and pour it down. The or-
dinary old Oklahoma bar room would
be a credit to the place where the
booze is disposed of. And this drink-
ing usually comes on Sunday and in
some secret place in town or on some
creek hank where there are only so-
called men present. They don't want
their families to know where they ure.
This, of itself, brands it ns a violation
ot' the law. They not only desecrate
the law of the state but the luw of
God as well. On Monday these same
persons will prate about tlie enforce-
ment of the laws.
Aside from the whiskey violations,
we wish to call attention to a spot of
ground near the tool house on the
Rock Island tracks where the ground
is kept too smooth to be done by the
usual Oklahoma zephyrs. It sure
would make an admirable place to
throw the dice.
And in this connection it is point-
ed out that several boys about town
have made several pieces of money
on Sundays in the past (Standing
guard for a “bunch” of humans who
call themselves men, while they gam
