THE CARTER EXPRESS
When you stop to consider the'little word "Thrift”
seriously, you will realize that it is one of the greatest
words in the English language.
Had it not been for the thrift of the American people
in supplying food for the allied world, there would have
very likely been millions of people starved ere this. In
other words thrift saved the world from starvation—thrift
won the war,
Now that the people learned the lesson of thrift
, during the war we ask why would this not be a good
practice to keep up at the present time? It is the only
way to get ahead in the world;, it will cause you to save a
little of your earnings each week and thus prepare for
that "rainy day" that we know is coming. We invite
you to open up a bank account with us at once, even
though it be small, and you will be delighted at the feel-
of security that you will experience as your account

Road Bond Proposition.
If the sentiment on the 50 mill-
ion dollar road bond issue is the
same over the state as it ap-
pears to be in this locality, the
proposition will not even get a
good start in the election.—Foss
If the people of Foss, where
one of the great hard surfaced
roads is supposed to come along,
are so overwhelmingly opposed
to the proposition then why
should any one at Carter vote for
it when we are not even suppos-
ed to get any benefit from it?
Bet Your Last Dollar, No!
Ask the farmers as you corns
to them how they stand upon
the road bond issue, and you
would be surprised to S3e how
few of them favor it. Not one
in five will vote this huge in-
debtedness upon themselves
Bet your last dollar, no. The
people of Western Oklahoma
have no ambition to be classed
as darn fools. They look on this
proposed bond issue to be unfair
enough to approach a condition
of crookedness. To begin with
it is a noteworthy fact that nine-
ty percent of the friends of this
bond issue live on the east side
where hundreds of millions of
dollars worth of property is non
taxable. To be frank, the squaw
man and his friend, the grafter,
want the west side to build their
roacs for them. The Indian
| country has always been a mill
* stone about the west side’s neck,
and always will be, but this is
one rabbit's foot that won’t
