nut do y :#u any good for some
other fellow to use his month to
do your eating don’t you? Or to
use his ears to do your hearing
to some sweet melodious music?
Now then, here ia the point I
wish to make. When you was
created, a brain was given you to
do your thinking with, and what
have you been doing? You have
been letting the other fellow do
your thinking for lo! these many
years, and he is getting richer
every day while you are getting
poorer. It would be just as ab-
surd for you to let another do
your eating, as to let him do
your thinking. It is an evident
fact that if you let others doyour

vanced over fifty per cent. Rent
houses, both resident and for)
business, are in demand, hence
rent is advancing also.
To invest here and build for
the purpose of renting out the
property and take advantage of
another rise when the depot is
built will be a paying investment
You hate a speciailnvitation to

does things,” id invest your
money, where you may realize 50

G. W. DAY ON
G. W. Day, the farmerlecturer
on prohibition, spoke to a good
size crowd on the streets here
Saturday afternoon. He also
lectured at the Presbyterian
church Sunday afternoon at3:30.
Mr, Day certainly made the open
saloon look like thirty cents with
the three left off. He showed
that Beckham county, instead of
going bankrupt on account of
prohibition, had made the boot-
leggers pay all court cost, on
booze cases, and bad $300. in the
fund to fight other bootleggers
cases with. He said other count-
ies in the state were making the
bootleggers pay the court cost,
and instead of the state going
bankrupt because of bootleggers,
the state was coming out in fine
shape. He showed that the open
saloon was 500 times worse for
the rising generation than blind
tigers. He proved that if the
proposition for open saloons car-
ried that all farmers would be
disfranchised and could have no
more voice on the whiskey ques-
tion, as under the new law such
matters would be left to the cit ies
only. He pointed out that under
the law the honest farmers and
fax payers of this county, would
have to pay $7C0 for the saloon
man. From his talk we judge
that Day does not believe in
whiskey a little bit
man think for yourself and see
if something somewhere is not
John Folks is recotering from

There is about three ways bv
which a man can make his living.
First by working for it, second
by begging, and last by robbing
or stealing it from the worker.

This writer read with much
interist F. E. Bower’s article,
“Are you Owls & Lobsters”
which came out in the last issue
of the Express." We think we
have read some of his writings
before in a redhot paper publish-
ed at St. Louis, Mo.
Miss Mila Cornelius of Carter,
is here spending the week with
Miss Ida Allred.
Last Sunday being the fifth
Sunday there was no preaching
at either the church or school-
house, so several of our church
going people attended a protract-
ed meeting over at Pink school
house on that day.
The people of dur settlement
are certainly hignley elated over
the fact that their trading point
is to have railroad facilities foi
shipping their produce etc. in
the near future.

They were accused of robbing
the Carter postoftice last Spring.
There was no evidence that
amounted to anything outside of
what young McClung gave away,
as the “Preacher’’ denied ever
having anything to do with the
robbery. Both should have a
term in the pen, but we don’t see
how they could convict a man on
his own evidenoeonly. But “the
way of the transgressor is hard”
is just as true to-day as it was
200 years ago.
Mr, Thresher is the champion
cotton raiser of this section so
far as we know. He has out 2b

The auction sale here last Sat
urday was well attended by the
farmers of the surounding coun-
try. JJ.C. Green, the auctioneer,
did exceedingly well. Some
clothing, horses, cows, Polan
China hogs and other stuff was
auctioned off free to those having
the stuff for sale. If you have
any kind of stock, farm imple-
ments, household goods etc.,
you wish sold next Saturday,
just bring it in and get the servi-
ces of a good auctioneer free of
charge. • i

The Sayre Headlight of last
week, contained one of the most
sen sable articles on “Mail Order’L
houses that we have read in a
Iona time. In this article Judge
Seifert shows how merchants
may beat Mail Order houses to
the trade of their territory, by
advertising their goods, and in-
viting the people to compare
their goods and prices with the
goods and prices put up by the
Mail Order Houses. The best
way to get the Mail Order, trade
is to beat their orices and our
merchants can do it and do it
easy if they try.
