Haskell Will Build Road if
Taft Signs Bridge
The Muskogee and Ft. Gibson Bridge
company's bill paused (ho house ol
representatives at Wanhington ye .
ti rday and now only awaits the sig-
nature of President Tuft before It will
go Into effect.
The president's signature to the bill
means the Immediate construction of
a bridge across the Arkansas and tho
completion of a one hundred foot
boulevurd between here and Ft. Gib-
son. C. N. Haskell announced that
the bridge would be built In the near
future and the boulevard constructed
at the same time.
The road, which has already been
surveyed, will follow closely tho line
of the Interurban and will wind among
some of the most beautiful scenery In
this part of the state.
It Is certain to become popular at
once with automoblllstn and also
other vehicles. A force of men will
keep the road in good condition at all
times. The ex-governor and Ills asso-
ciates have donated a strip of ground
one hundred feet wide to tho county
and they will build the boulevard on
this strip before it la turned over to
The bridge Is, of course, a necessary
part of the road and boulevard und
the bill providing for Its construction
had to be a part of the government
business before It could be built.

"This fellow has a unique trick for
getting his manuscripts into more
rapid circulation," wild the editor of a
magazine the other day. "He Incloses
not one envelope addressed back to
himself, but several envelopes which
are addressed to other magazines.
"Now, in this letter I am Instructed
to send the manuscript to a certain
other publication in cuse I do not de-
cide to buy it. That other publica-
tion is in turn told In the letter which
Is oontalned in the envelope addressed
to it that It must send the manu-
script on to another magazine in case
it is not acceptable. I see that it
works well, for the man sells all of
his things somewhere or other. And
he evidently geta rid of them with a
minimum of effort and trouble on Ills
part, and in a very short time, too."—

DIES ATJjlS HOME
Political Campaign Fatal to
Last Confederate General
MEMPHIS, Aug. 9.—General Geo.
W. Gordon, communder in chief of
the United Confederate veterans, and
(i member of congress, died at his
home here today. Ills Illness dated
from his last political campaign, when
he was reelected to the national house
of representatives the last general of
the confederacy to serve In thut body.
He wo* born In Gilts county, Ten-
nessee, October S, 1836. He saw much
service In the Civil war. In 188G he
was connected with the federal de-
partment of the interior, and he was
elected a member of the sixtieth con-
gress from the Tenth Tennessee dis-
trict and re-elected to the slaty-first
and sixty-second congresses.
General Gordon was chosen com-
mander in chief of the United Con-
federate veterans at the reunion of
1910 at Mobile, Ala., and was re-elect-
ed last May. Immediately after the
close of his last political campaign
General Gordon's health began to fall.
Asthma in a severe form attacked
him, uraemia developed and In his
weakened condition he could not with-
stand the added complications.

A Chicago lawyer tells of a newly
elected squire in Minnesota, who was
much elated by his honors, but not
quite sure that he could sustain them
gracefully. So for some time previous
to his assumption of the office he
hung about the courts to get a tip
now and then as to legal procedure.
One phrase struck him particularly,
and it was not long before he had an
opportunity to utilize it.
When sitting in judgment on his
first case, the testimony was all In
and the arguments made, his honor
cleared his throat and delivered him-
self of the following:
"The court takes this case under ad-
visement until next Thursday morn-
ing, when it will render a verdict in
favor of the defendant,"—Eippln-

A LITTLE RUN.
'Twas a dull and dismal house and
—haunted, says Answers. No one
ever lived there—except, of course,
the ghost—till Blnks came; Pinks,
the Brave, who Jeered at ghosts and
scoffed at spectors.
But the first night he slept in the
dark, mysterious mansion the ghost
came. A fehrsome figure it was and
the clanking of its chains weakened
even Binks. He saw the ghostly fing-
er pointing at him and—
Two minutes later Blnks, the Brave
was breaking records on the moonlit
highway. He did the hundred yards
under ten seconds, and at the end of
a half-mile sank exhausted by the
A hollow cough sounded near him
and Blnks turned. There, by his
side, sat the ghost!
"That was a great run we had," ob-
served the spectrel one pleasantly.
You're right!" gasped Blnks. "And
if—you'll only wait—till 1 get my
breath—we'll have another one!"

In the Heart of Things
In many cases you must locate a steam-
driven factory in the outskirts of a city
away from the heart of things. Either
municipal laws prescribe this or citizens
protest against the smoke nuisance, noise,
dirt, and possible boiler or flywheel explosion.
You can locate in the heart of activity by
installing electric motor drive, using our
reliable electric power.
Place your factory where access to raw
material, good shipping facilities and efficient
employees, can be readily secured.
We guarantee greater production with the
same power than is possible with steam jngine
and shafting drives, or the same production with
less power consumption.
