Oklahoma to Make Hs W. S. S.
Reports of increased activities in
the counties of Oklahoma which
failed to make the quota on Nation
al War Savings day indicate that
this state will soon reach the goal
322 of forty-seven million dollars in War
Savings Stamps pledged.
Thousands of persons who failed
to record their pledge on June 28th
have since been reached and are
gradually joining the vast army of
war savers. Persons of means are
^ subscribing to the $1,000 limit and
I this has materially helped.
The Oklahoma committee has is-
sued another appeal as follows:
"Oklahoma has not failed so far
in any war activity. Keep up the
fight until every person has pledged
his or her limit. Reports are en-
couraging and we hope to notify
Washington soon ttat our quota has
"The sales of stamps during June
were almost as great as for the en-
tire months of the year preceeding.
An equally good record is expected
when the July report is received.
Keep up the payments on your
pledge and you will help the gov-
ernment and at the same time have
something in 1923."
Allotments May Appear Smaller.
Oklahoma dependents of enlisted
or drafted men should not worry in
case their allotment allowance checks
from the Bureau of War Risk In-
surance are reduced in amount or
if the checks should be slow in com-
ing. The July allotments are not
payable until August an<f the Aug-
ust allotments until September.
The reduction in amounts is due
to a change in the ruling. Here-
after the Bureau will pay allot-
ments only when they carry with
them government family allowances
and then only in the amounts re-
quired to support such allowances.
All other allotments will be paid by
the branch of the military or naval
service in which the man is enlisted.
The minimum of $15.00 a month
will be paid by the War Risk Insur-
ance Bureau, regardless of the pay
received by the enlisted man.
Should a man for instance, wish
to allot half his pay as before the
excess will be paid by the War De-
partment through the Quartermas-
ter General. Dependents in doubt
should communicate with the Home
Service Sections of the American

To Chairmen and Secretaries of
County Councils of Defense in
Tick Infested Areas:—
The Oklahoma State Coun-
cil of Defense regards the erad-
ication of the cattle tick which
conveys a disease that kills thou-
sands of beef producing animals
and makes scrubs of all in the
quarantined area, a most impor-
tant food conservation measure.
At its regular meeting on Satur-
day, July 27th, the State Coun-
cil passed a resolution directing
county councils to indorse the
action of state and federal ag-
ents in their work and to aid
and co-operate with them in
carrying it out in every way pos-
This work is being carried on
jointly by the Government and
state by methods prescribed by
the Government. Fifty-two per
cent of the original quarantined
area of the United States quar-
antined for ticks has already
been cleaned up and released
Congress, recognizing the im-
portance of the work as a food
conservation measure has pro-
vided additional funds to rush it.
It is hoped that no misguided
citizen, for reasons which may
appear to him of personal impor-
tance, will, in any way lend him'
self to the creation of any opos-
ition to this important food con-
servation measure, which will
also contribute very materially
to the prosperity of the State.
Yours very truly,
Oklahoma State Council of De-
fense, J. M. Aydelotte, Chm.

The War Mothers’ Association of
America, Oklahoma Division, have

retary of State and will proceed at

out Oklahoma. Already manv in-
quiries have been received and di-
visions are in process of formation

gum and Carter and communications

terested in the movement should ad-

quiries regarding formation of local
The objects of the organization,
as expressed in its constitution are, j
“To make more effective all war
work, including food conservation,
war financing, aiding the Red Cross,
assisting in promoting a universal
spirit of patriotism, and to render
mutal sympathy while the sons are
in the military service of our coun-
It is proposed to hold a state-wide
convention at Oklahoma City in the
near future, when delegates will be
invited to attend from all over the

of them earned $140,000,000

The following taken from the Hays
(Kansas) Free Press, has reference
to the mother of Henry Carter, of
Chapel, and grandmother of Emery
W. Carter, now in the service at
Ft. Riley, Kansas:
"Here’s a dollar to buy some-
thing good to put in that box for the
lonesome boys at Camp Funston,”
said Mrs. Candas Carter, better
known as Grandma Carter, to this
reporter the other day, as she drop-
ped into our kitchen for a morning
call. She sat down and gave us the
following little history that seems
interesting enough to pass on:
"1 know something about what
warmeans—and I know it’s the boys
who go to war and never get any
letters or anything from home or
friends, are the ones that are so
glad to be remembered if it’s only
once. My father fought in the
Battle of New Orleans, and when
the war was over, he started home
afoot to Kentucky, but because of a
shoulder wound, he had to live six
months in a Cherokee Indian camp
before he could be strong enough to
continue his journey. I had a broth-
er who, with five sons fought in the
battle of Pittsburg Landing.
My second brother was in the
regiment of cavalrymen that spiked
the cannons of the enemy at the
battle of Nashville, and after doing
his part, his horse whirled and threw
him, and before he could rise the
cavalry horses trampled him to death.
"My youngest brother stood
guard over General Grant one night,
while he slept, and was only fifteen
years old when the war was over
and he marched with Sherman to
the sea. My husband served also
and was at Stone river when the
news came of Lincoln’s assassina-
I had six children when mv hus-
band went to war, and the oldest
boy was not yet able to harness a
team—oh, I knew something about
hardship. I had to raise the crops
of corn, potatoes and tobacco, but
we had plenty when he came home.
Then I bore two more children and
adopted four more—so in ail 1 raised
twelve children. I am eighty-five
years old now, and have good health.
1 have sixty greatgrandchildren and
two great great grandchildren.
Oliver Hensley Ray, Locust Grove j ! U8et* t0 *° W^en t^e
„ ,. ! services were preached by the first
Methodist preacher that ever was
in the state of Indiana. His name
was Alexander. Well, 1 guess I’ll
be getting back home now."
And as she went down the steps
from the porch, the thought came
to us that here in our town iB a wo-
man whose life has been touched by
the wars of 1812, 1861, 1898 and
1917—whose heart goes out to the
boys in the camps at Funston, be-
cause she knows something of what
being a soldier really means.

We thought at first we would go
to the trouble of getting up a com-
plete table of the primary election
returns for this week’s Republican,'
but finally decided that it wasn’t
worth the effort.
Our boys over there are neither
republicans nor democrats—they’re
just Americans Then let us be
Americans first, over here. There's
too much politics mixed up in this

The following case is but one of
many occurring daily in Pryor. It is
an easy matter to verify it. You
cannot asked for better proof.

used Doan’s Kidney Pills off and on
for several years and have found them
very helpful. To anyone having back-
