The Altus Times, published at
Altus, Okja., reaches our ex-
change table always full of good
live reading matter and ads
always strike the readers' eye,
becanse they are set neatly and
the make-up of that paper is up
to the standard.
Write-upa of candidates in the
Gotebo Gazette are given to its
readers in small doses, continued
from week to week. This is a
novel way of keeping the name
of the candidate before the pub-
lic eye.—Cordell Beacon.

the neatest exchanges that

Anent Man sell
SOMETIME ago we had an article in regard to
O Mansells' speech at Hollis, and which was
clipped from the Hollis Post-Herald. Mr. Man-
sell saw fit to rake us over the coals for publish-
ing the article—no doubt because he saw his mis-
take in trying to abuse his opponent. And in a
letter he asked us "what motive" we had in view
"in publishing the article." Our motive was to
show how incompetent the judge was; and we, as
well as the people in this district, want a man who
is capable to handle the people's interest and look
after all matters pertaining to the welfare of the
people as a whole—that's the kind ef congressmen
the people want; and our present congressman,
Scott Ferris, is the man for the place beyond a
Does anyone believe that Hon. Scott Ferris is
"a do-nothing," and a "seat warmer?" No
man could thus express himself, and yet Judge
Mansell sees fit to accuse Scott Ferris of the above
charge. Scott Ferris has done as much and even
more than some congressman. He is a 4 'man of
great energy and an untiring worker for the in-
terests of the people."
Mr. Mansell, as everyone knows is the present
county judge of Kiowa county, and wants to be
elected to the office of congressman from this
district, seeking to defeat Scott Ferris, the pres-
Everyone will admit that Judge Mansell is not
considered as a man for the place. That Ferris
is the best man for the place is the way nearly all
the voters express themselves. Several of tne
leading citizens of Hobart say: "While Judge Man-
sell is a gentleman, and makes a fairly good coun-
ty judge, yet he is not the man we want in cong-
ress to represent the people; he is not qualified,"
And such is the sentiment from his home town.
Another thing we wish to call the people's at-
tention to is this:
Since Judge Mansell has entered the race for this
office, would it not be proper for him to resign
and iti a uuui ue appointed to fill his unexpired
term-some man who is competent to fill the of-
fice of county4udge. No that would not do, be-
cause he could draw no salary while out campaign-
ing ovor this fcig district. Would it not be to the
interests of the taxpayer of Kiowa county if he
would resign ^and save the taxpayers time and
money? Has not his opponent, Scott Ferris, re-
mained in Washington because he saw the
need of his presence in congress; in other words
to look after the people's interests? Has Mansell
remained in his office and looked after the peo-
ples interestst No he has not!
Several farmers have made tripfe to Hobart to
see Judge Mansell in order to make final proof
and each time ihey were informed that "he will
be back in abtjUt ten days." Is that looking after
the people's interests? The following article ap-
peared In the Hobart Republican of Jnne 19:
"As SOON as tne county judge returns,
those who, have violated the state law
will be aligned for trial."
Isn't this evidence that he is not doing his duty
towards the taxpayers, who elected him to office?
By delay the clses to come up for trial will pile up
until it will b$, impossible to clean up the docket
in any length ef time required.
No doubt he promised to look after the office
in a business vpay. Has he done it? No! a thous-
and times NO^
The Gazette is for the man who will keep his
promises and work for the interests of the PEO-
PLE. We are/iot in favor of any man who is an
officer to be out campaigning—at the EXPENSE
of the taxpayers—in his own interest and let the
peoples interests go to the four winds. The peo-
ple want a WORKER, not an EXCUSE for a
worker. Scott'Ferris is the man we want in
congress to represent the people—in fact that is
the way the majority of the voters express them
selves. And the majority rules!
We will have more to say about Scott Ferris
and Judge Mansell, later on. Watch these
columns for facts—with affidavits if necessary.

Kafir More Profitable Than Com
In 1911. the farmers of Kansas
grew 7,7*0.807 acres of corn which
brought an average return of $7.#§
per acre; and 919,046 acres of Kafir
corn which brought an average return
of 115.72 per acre. And the relative
superiority of kaflrcorn over corn is
greater in Oklahoma than ic Kansas.

There is scarcely any growing boy

at time of the y ar. Overstudv. lack of
proper attention to tbe bowels, impro-

anv one of these or other causes are
often sufficient to cause serious disorders.
K«xkII Sarsaparilla is, in our opinion
a splendid blood purifier. We know
many cases where it has quickly and
completely removed skiu disorders, such
as pimples, blotches, bolls, etc.
We know of do other remedy that
has givtii better results in the various
disorders arising from impure or
