PRINCE SLEET’S PARTY
Prince Sleet sent out his Invitations
for a party and the Breeze Brothers
und old Mr. Wind took them about
He Invited the Blizzard Boys and
Old Man Winter and Madame Snow
and the Icicle Girls.
He Invited the Slush Sisters nnd he
Invited King Snow und he Invited the
King of the Clouds and the Army of
Raindrops and the Mist Grandchildren
and Nurse Fog.
Oh, he sent out a splendid number
of Invitations and all of his guests
Of course he asked Mr. Wind to
come to his party, too. For Mr. Wind
and Prince Sleet were friends.
Mr.. Wind often spoke of his friend
“the Prince” and though some did
not care for Prince Sleet Mr. Wind
was very devoted to him.
“He’knows how to have a Jolly old
time and how to have a fine old party,”
Mr. Wind used to say once In awhile.
And you know how Mr. Wind likes
to play his pranks, too, every once In
Garbed In black robes, a party of
women wearing white hoods around
which were black bands with the ini-
tials W. A. P., said to be the insignia
of an auxiliary organization of women
to the Ku Klux Klan, visited a desti-
tute family camped near McAlester re-
cently. Numerous articles of clothing
and food and such things as the fam-
ily needed were placed in' the covered
wagon bed in which a mother and sev-
eral children sleep.
"I saw he was going to drown if
somebody didn't get him out of the
hole In the ice, after he broke through,
so I just went out and held him up
until somebody came,” is what eleven-
year old Karney Cochran said alter he
rescued Richard Wilson, six years old,
from drowning and freezing when
Richard, heedless of th-e warnings of
his playmates, ventured out on the ice
of the Oklahoma City Golf and Coun-
try Club lake to get a golf ball.
“You’d better get out from behind
the car or you’ll be run down just as
that man was run down on the Morris
road the other day,” was the caution
that a young lady gave to her sister,
as the latter attempted to push their
automobile Into gear at Okmulgee, re
cently. .Hardly had she uttered the
words before a big touring car coming
up from behind, crushed into her sister
and pinned her between the two cars,
the' girl’s automobile being driven
twenty feet by the Impact.
A carload of fat cattle is being col-
lected in Beckham county for the Wal-
ton barbecue, according to Dan V.
Lackey. Ixigau county has a commit-
tee at work under the leadership of
Ora Patillo, secretary of the democrat-
ic county central committee and pre-
dicts that they will come in with as
large a quota of provisions as any of
the democratic counties.
Rainfall in Oklahoma in November
was 1.14 inches above normal, as an
average for the entire state, accord-
ing to the monthly record issued
by the federal weather bureau. Early
planted wheat made good growth, be-
came- well rooted, and much was pas-
tured during the month, the report
says. Rainfall was slightly below nor-
mal In western Oklahoma.
All the public school land of Okla-
homa, except that under oil and gas
l.eases, Is to be thrown on the market
in a lump sura to be sold at auction,
under a decision of the commissioners
of the state land office, according to A.
S. J. Shaw, secretary of the commis-
sion and state treasurer-elect. The
sale would dispose of about 400,000
acres of land, according to Shaw.
“First of All."
a while so It would not have sounded
well for hUn to have criticized Prince
Well, the day for the party came.
And so did all the guests which was
just as It should be.
On a Say of a party all the guests
should appear 1
First of all came Mr. Wind and the
Breeae Brothers and Prince Sleet.
Then came along the King of the
Clouds and the Army of Raindrops and
the Mist Grandchildren and Nurse
They ran races and played games
with King Snow nnd the Snowdrop
children and with Madame Snow, too.
And then the Slush Sisters were In
for all the fun. How they did spat-
ter about and what a good time they
had though they were anything but
pretty and graceful!
The Blizzard Boys came along and
the Icicle Girls came when Mr. Wind
began to blow his very cold winter
This was the song which went with
the very cold winter tune:
I love the snow,
I love the lco.
I think that both
Are very nice.
I love the rain,
I love the slush.
To them 1 never
Will say hush!
I love King Storm.
1 love Prince Sleet.
Together they can
Give a party quite neat “
King Storm has just come,
I Invited him too.
It was Just as Prince Sleet
Asked me to do.
The people complain
When a storm comes along
But that doesn't change
The tune of our song.
We sing and we whistle,
We laugh and we dance,
Cold air we have with us
And It helps make us prance.
Oh, the very cold weather
Is our keenest delight,
But the great winter storms
With their power and their might,
Make us happy as happy as happy can be,
For they fill us with Joy
And they fill us with fun,
Oh, Prince Sleet, so dashing.
Our hearts you have won.
You are loved by your friends.
So don't mind all the others
For we're your admirers and loving
The winter and the enow,
And Prince Sleet giving a party,
While cold air Mr. Wind will blow!
And all of Prince Sleet’s guests
danced to the music of this song
which Mr. Wind sang.
WOMEN NEED SWAMP-ROOT
Thoasande of women have kidney and
bladder trouble and never suspect it.
Women's complaints often prove to be
nothing else but kidney trouble, or the
result of kidney or bladder disease.
If the kidneys are not in a healthy con-
dition, they may cause the other organs
to become diseased.
Pain in the back, headache, loss of am-
bition, nervousness, are often times symp-
toms of kidney trouble.
Don't delay starting treatment. Dr.
Kilmer’s Swamp-Root, a physician’s pre-
scription, obtained at any’drug store, may
be just the remedy needed to overcome
Get a medium or large size bottle im-
mediately from any drug store.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation send ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer Jt Co., Binghamton, N. Y., for a
sample bottle. When writing be sure aad
mention this papen—Advertisement.

“Aw, he never turns down dls al-

ful physician, but also a profound
student of the medicinal qualities of
Nature’s remedies, roots nnd herbs,

ods used by the Indians, he discovered
their great remedial qualities, espe-
cially for weaknesses of women, and
after careful preparation succeeded In
giving to the world a remedy which
has been used by women with the best
results for half n century. Dr. Pierce’s

(leninnd, while many other so called
“cure-alls” have come nnd gone. The

that Is claimed foV'the Favorite Pre-
scription as n regulator for the Ills
peculiar to women.
