His name is mud with a capital M.

With a grand flourish of trumpets
Speed sailed in with the remark that
"when I get through with this investi
gation there will be nothing left of
the Democratic party in Oklahoma."
When Mr. Horace It. Speed started
in on his so-called investigation tho
day was in that transitory state when
twilight lingers in the lap of day and
darkness struggles for the ascendancy.
The sun hung In a great red ball of
livid llaino betwixt heaven and earth;
there was a profound quiet which
seemed to settle on all things animate
and inanimate. The birds, the in-
sects, tho very trees and sproutlag
plants wcro for the moment hushed us
if in expectancy of some unforeseen,
some inexplicable something which
seemed to pervade the very atmos
phere. A bull frog gurgled softly as
he fell back into the limpid water.
Suddenly over the brow of a dis taut
hill there appeercd a solitary man,
seated astride a phantom political
horse; ho cast one long, sweeping
glance around htm aud then went
