Look after that hack yard anil
the vacant lot next door. "I have
two vacant lots close to the square
that 1 can get no one to take," said
a real estate man today. One of
the reasons why some of the vacant
lots are idle is that people in their
vicinity do not like to make garden.
Get the "feeling" and make the gar-
den on the other fellow's lot; it will

The folder of Information Issued
today by Secretary Scarff of the

Last year's failure to issue the or-
der has culminated in this killing,
with no telling what effect upon the
life of the orphan boy. Bryan Lls-
ton; to say nothing of the sorrow
and loss of the Alexander home and
the child Fay.
A failure to prohibit fthts y*ar
would approximate a crime.
The death of Fay Alexander can-
not be charged to the roster parents
of the lad Bryan List on I they did not
know he had the pistol. It cannot
be charged to the lad himself. He
did what hundreds of other lads
have done by the permission of the
community; he bought the gun for
the purpose of celebrating his coun-
try's birthday. The whole mattetr
harks back to the men and women
of the community, particularly the
city government—Just as do the Iri-
quois fire In Chicago, the General
Sloeum disaster, and sbirtwaist fac-
tory fire in New York.
Perhaps no special blame should
be urged In this immediate case, but
the« responsibility for neglect pnd
consideration first for proJlts and
second for human rights and life Is
inevitable. The people of the city
must acknowledge a major part In
the record that has been made. By
their permission and refusal to pro-
vide protection, a lad bought a dan-
gerous instrument for any man to
have; indeed any man who has had
experience with fire arms would not
risk his life in the presence of per-
sons carrying such /an Instrument
as the pistol which killed Fay Alex-
ander. But a mere child bought It
In Enid, used it in Enid and suffers
immeasurably In Enid because we
took first thought for property and
profits, and neglected the children.
Certainly the case against the toy
pistol and explosives ought to be
made by this time. The toy pistol's
license is human life; there Is no
justification for Its use.

THbi TOY MSTOI/S TOLL
Early this morning Fay Alex-
ander. a,ar-old child who
was well and happy Monday, laid
down his life; a sacrifice; and the
thirteen-year-old oprhau son of Pat
Liston has written into his tender
years the record of the death of a
playmate. The community and city
is sorrow striken in sympathy with
the parents and friends of both these
little lads, the one a child of love
and victim of a horrible accident;
the other a victim of a toy pistol's
And the toy pistol has collected
This particular pistol was sold to
Bryan Liston for the celerbation or
the fourth of July last year. A pro-
test was raised against the sale of
explosives or their use in the city,
but not until the tenth of June, and
thereafter. The city commission re-
fused to prohibit the sale at that
time for the reason that it did not
seem fair to do so after the merchants
had their orders in stock and would
have lost money had such an order
No prohibitive order has been is-
sued since, it is too late now to
save one lad—but there are hun-
dreds of others who are in danger;

year for an ordinance and order that
in this instance I wish to diverge
from the old established custom,
and will briefly explain my views
on some lines.

I believe that every school child
should at least once and still better
twice each year be examined, by a
physician to ascertain the condition
of its eyes, ears, nose and throat.
Frequently serious ailments in-
sidiously develop with school child-
ren without the slightest knowl-
edge of parent or teacher, and con-
tinue until alarming symptoms
and often permanent injury to
me of these organs result.
How often do school children con-
tract weak eyes, not always caused
by excessive use, but by poor or
Improper reflexion of light?
How often do children contract
serious and stubborn throat affec-
tions. severe colds, and rheumatic
tendencies, by being seated, unawar-
es In a current of air?
1 believe that every school build-
ing. should be carefully and con-
siderately planned, and the seat?
likewise a; ranged so as to give, not
necessarily the most light but the
salV st and best light possible for
the adoption of study.
These are mere suggestions, but
they mean much to our children and
should be duly considered by pa-
rents and teachers.
Many of the best indications of
our country, physicians, and philan-
thropist are giving much time and
thought along this line, and as a
result many school boards have

HOGS FREE FROM PARASITES
Louse Is Common Cause of Thriftless-
ness in Young Pigs and Tends to
Retard Their Growth.
(By A. S. ALEXANDER.)
The hog louse is a common cause of
thriftlejsness In young pigs and when
numerous, tends to retard their
growth. It Is advisable and most
profitable to keep swine free from lice
at all ages and stages of their exist-
ence and development so far as pos-
sible. To this end their houses, pens
and sleeping places should frequently
be cleaned and disinfected, the wood-
work whitewashed, the bedding mate
rial kept fresh, .clean and dry and the
yards free from accumulations of lit-
ter and fllth.
It Is Impossible to keep hogs free
from lice without maintaining sani-
tary conditions in their quarters and
In attempting to rid them of these
pests the treatment must Include not
only the hogs, but practically every-
thing with which they come in con

them In a warm two 'per cent, solu-
tion of coal tar dip and repeat the
treatment in ten days or two weeks;
or apply freely with a
spray pump anarun it in with a brujih.
The addition of~ftowers of sulphur at
the rate 16% t>oundS to each 100 gal-
lons of dip mixture renders the so-
lution more effective and such a com-
bination solution should be freely used
for all forms of mange or chronic dis-
ease of the skin in hogs.
To destroy lice, a mixture of equal
parts of kerosene and machine oil, or
one part of turpentine and two parts
of machine oil, should be applied to
every part of the hog by means of a
rag or swab of cotton waste; or it
may be applied along the back, from
ears to tail, with a common machine
oil can and allowed to ooze down the
sides of the hog. Repeat the appli-
cation In ten days. As a remedy for
lice on black hogs crudc> petroleum
oil Is successfully used. It is mixed
with an equal amount of warm water
and applied with a spray pump or
brush. A repetition of the applica-
tion, in ten to fourteen days, eradi-
cates lice with certainty. Irritating
applications, such r.s undiluted kero-
sene, cannot safely be used on preg-
nant sows, as abortion may follow

The greatest crisis m a woman's
lite is when first she bccomes
a mother. All the physical
strength of her nature is de-
manded at such times, and it ia
necessary that her system be
thoroughly prepared for the
event, in order that her health be preserved for future years. Moth-
er's Friend is woman's safest reliance; it is a medicine for external
use, composed of oils and other ingredients which assist nature in all
necessary physical changes of the system. Its regular use before the
coming of baby prepares the muscles and tendons for the unusual
strain, aids in expanding th: skin and flesh fibres, and strengthens
;.he tissues. Mother's Friend leaves the mother in such healthful
condition that her recovery is
always rapid and natural.
