MADILL, OKLA. FEB. 5.
Let Madill become ft city of
the first class and as such rem-
xly some evils that cannot be
reached as she is.
You believe in keeping money
at home. Then buy your sup-
plies at home this year, and at
the end see if Madill is not a
If home institutions will give
the home printing plants, the
work which can be done here
as well as it is in the city, it.will
keep money at home and help
the town's best friends.
Again, we would like to call
attention to the fact that there
are dozens of children of school
age on our streets every day.
This should not be. There
should be some way to remedy
We understand that a great
deal of small grain is being
planted in Marshall County.
This is good, when we remem-
ber that practically all the mo-
ney that has come to us for the
past two years was from this
a 25 cent Kansas City paper
and think they are saving 75
cents a year thereby. One Rip-
ley county man ordered a $( 5
buggy from a Kansas City com-
pany, and when it came it was
the identical buggy sold by It.
E. Lee here at home for $50,
and no freight to pay. He was
not a reader of the Republic,
because 'it cost too much,' as
he said, but he lost money
enough in that one transaction
to pay for tin; paper for 15years
No one knows how much more
he lost in the past several years
because this is the first instance
in which he was shown and
convinced of his loss.
"We shall not expose this
man in his duplicity, because
we haven't his consent to use
his name, but the circumstance
should be a warning to the
wise heads who talk about the
county paper having nothing in
it of any value, and that it costs
"The advertising matter of
the home merchant is equally
important as other reading
matter, and the man who fails
to read it and keep posted is
apt to trade with merchants
who do not advertise. If he does
this, and pays too much for
goods, he has no recourse, the
merchant having never agreed
to sell goods as cheap as the

county paper you save one dol-
lar in one year but only the
Hart, of Nashville, who is hear-
ing testimony in the Carmack
murder case. On the question of
the fitness of a juror who habit-
ually uses intoxicants Judge
Hart ruled that "a man is drunk
when he is so much under the
influence of liquor that he be-
comes a nuisance to the gener-
An old view of drunkenness
which has had wide acceptance
was that a man is not drunk so
long as he can lie down without
holding on. A British justice
has recently held that a man
cannot be regarded as drunk if
he can find his way home alone.
These precedents are now fur-
ther amplified, though the
Nashville decision is subject to
appeal and review by the high-
It is obvious that between
the extremes of "drunk as a
lord" and "sober as a judge"
a wide latidude of indulgence
in stimulants is allowable. The
question of capacity also enters
into the case, as between Toe,
for whome one glass was too
much, and Pitt and Dundas,
w h o divided seven bottles
of po r t between them i n
an evening. But it is made
clear that any amount of tack-
ing and failling in getting home
and any number of stabs at the
keyhole are permissible, the
one restriction being as to in-
terfering with the imblic peace.
The Nashville decision is a-
gainst boisterous intoxication,
