GREAT DAT FOR
EDITORS AT FAIR
Lavish Entertainment for
Newspaper Men of Okla-
homa at State Fair
Editors of the newspapers of Ok
lahoma will date time from Friday,
September 27, which will be Press Day
at the Oklahoma State Fair and Ex-
position, Oklahoma City, Septembei
24 to October 5. The men who make
the papers of the great state of Ok
lahoma will be entertained at <the
State Pair this year on a grand scale
and given a day they will not Boon
forget. Details are now being work
ed out by a special committee named
by the Oklahoma Press Association,
consisting of E. W. Julian, chairman;
John Fields, president of the Oklaho
ma State Fair and Exposition and
editor of the Oklahoma Farm Journal;
C. B. Edgar, publisher of the Okla
homa City Times; Hoy E. Stafford,
editor of the Oklahoman, and W. B
Moore of the Chamber of Commerce.
When the tentative program as out-
lined by the special committee was
submitted to the officers and directors
of the Oklahoma State Fair and Ex-
position, it received their heartiest in-
dorsement and they declared they
would go the limit in entertaining the
publishers and editors. This desire
on the part of the officers and di
rectors of the fair to co-operate with
the special committee lias given the
rommittee an incentive to work hard-
er and it is proposed to arrange a
program that will make the 1912 Press
Day at the big exposition memorable
in the history of the newspaper fra-
ternity of Oklahoma.
Preparations will be made for at
least three hundred editors, Including
their families, and the plan of enter-
tainment will be flexible enough to
are for one thousand if necessary.

In a business women's boarding

there was a disposition to form

at table day after day became well ac-

Then one day the manager an-
nounced that, to "keep things mov-

seats at table the first day of each

The title "Cave of the Golden Calf"

At a moment when an admiring
world echoes with the achievements of
one Italian electrical inventor, there
passes from the earth In deepest ob-
scurity another Italian to whom the
arts and sciences are also under obll
gatlon, and the contrast Is dramatic
the Scientific American remarks. In
cldentally, It may be noted that the
country of Volta by some curious proc
ess of heredity or continuance always
holds her own in the industry to which
Volta gave birth, but only the student
knows that alongside the gleaming
name of Marconi may also be set those
of Pacinotti and FerrfcriB.
As far back as 1864 the gentle Ital-
ian physician Pacinotti introduced tim-
idly to public notice a small electro
magnetic machine, with toothed ring
armature, which, he pointed out with
prophetic instinct, was available both
us a motor and as a generator. And

New York's law on the subject was
passed In 1828 as part of the revised
statutes and has been re-enacted from
time to time with but slight change,
although living conditions have, of
course, altered considerably In the
past ninety years.
As a result of this situation, the
New York fiat-dweller will find, if he
looks up the law providing for his
"exemptions from execution, that
however much the high cost of living
may enslave him, the sheriff will
never be able to take from him any
of the following articles which may
be discovered in his flat:
"All spinning wheels, weaving looms
and stoves put up or kept for use in
a dwelling house, and one sewing ma-
chine with its appurtenances.
"Ten sheep with their fleeces, and
the yarn or cloth manufactured there-
from; one cow, two swine, the neces-
sary food for those animals, all neces-
sary meat, fish, flour, groceries and
vegetables, actually provided for fam-
ily use, and necessary fuel, oil and
candles, for the use of the family
for sixty days.

steads and bedding, necessary for the

necessary cooking utensils; one ta-
smiling, truly prosperous provinces
of France. The French lend money
to all the world. They are perhaps
the most prosperous of peoples. A
country divided into such small self-^
sufficient holdings is defended in
the strongest way against financial
explosions and shipwrecks. What-
ever may be the zest of cow-punching
or the charm of the old-fashioned
plantation life, no state can be said
to have reached social maturity when
it is composed of large holdinga and
its inhabitants are dependent on the
financial ups and downs of the few.
The swamp lands of the United
States are particularly good examples
of this sort of backwardness. They
are useful for nothing but timber,
and oftentimes not for that. Anything
more unsocial or desolate than a
southern cypress swamp it would be
difficult to imagine. Yet those who
are interested In the tremendously
important euestion af swamp drain-
age often meet with a curious local
opposition, in addition to the obvious
mechanical difficulties and the tangle
of stato lines. Owners do not want
to break up their large holdings, even
though the value of the land will be
vastly improved. They have been

School Bells of Oklahoma
Hushed on Friday, Sep-

School bells of many cities and
towns in Oklahoma will not ring out
on Friday, September 27, 1912, which
Vvill be Educational Day at the great

nearly thirty thousand persons pass-

pected to be second only to the vast

ion to speak on the opening day of

While the entire Stato Fair and Ex-
position will be a liberal education
from the time the gateB swing back

like twenty bands from the leading
cities and townB of the state.
Visitors to the State Fatr have al-
ways manifested a peculiar interest in

arranged so that anywhere from three
to four bands will be playing at the
same time at different points on the
1611 acres of ground, ill the large

heard from morning until late at night.

The great art of life, so far as I
have been able to observe, consists
in fortitude and perseverance. I have
rarely seen that a mnn who conscien-

not omit to take fair and honorabio
opportunities of offering himself to
notice when such presented them-

The mischance of those who fall be-
hind. though flung upon fortune,
more frequently arises from want of
Bkill and perseverance. Life is like
a game of cards. Our hands are al-
ternately good or bad and the whole
seems, at first glance, to depend on
mere chance. But It is not so, for ln
the long run the skill of the player
predominates over the casualties of
the game. Therefore, do not be dis-
couraged with the prospect beforo
you, but ply your studies hard and
qualify yourself to receive fortune
