In many JrtBtancea. no survhbr left to

several hundred mUllcns to care for
the afflicted and the danger of pestil

and towns fire followed tho groat

ple pinioned dwn by the buildings
which were rent In twain. No chaucc

ponlnsula of Europe but was accepted,
becauso these people have been renred
In the shadow of earthquako disasters
for many centuries. Tiho twisting of

ENID SCHOOL BOARD.
The Enid city school board declare
ihn tn.irfirH shall not attend dances.
Tho board's president objected to the1
crder and accompanied two teaencra
to a dance; being asked to resign uc
,..!. of Ma nlidncltv. Nfl OVt pro'
irm.iu in believe that dancca aro In
jurious to tho public morals unless they
aro arranged to pay a profit and whoso
will pay can enter, in sucn cases u
-quires a careful club president t?
ufold disreputable people attending,
but the samo could be applied to an
oyster supper prepared by tho er.v
host churdn woriters oi any vuiiu
ity. It would to better, perhaps if the
Enid teachers would refrain rom at
tending dnnces. Not that It harms
them or incapacitates them for duty,
but becauso tho people holding t-- the
fossil-starred notion a dance Is sinful
can not long romaln In power In Enid
or ny other place; therefore in one
winter the opposition to enj:ymont
will bo freo of power.
When opportunity to nllow disciples
of crankydom to pass from vlow with
out extending notlco is embraced, It in
better for a community seening uu
vnncemont. Everybody undorstanda
:ni08t all favor allowing people to
sloop out of jail whllo employed bb In

O ADVERTISING EXPERIENCE O
O VERSUS THEORY. O
Some merchants always tho men
w-lu have never given newspaper ad
vertising a fair trial go on the theor
ies that "it does not pay to ndvertlse,"
or "It does not nay to odvertlso when
business is lull." or "it does not pay!
to advertise m summer or winter.'
Against theb? false theories Is placed
tho actual experience of ono of Phila
delphia's moat successful merchants,
Thorny H. Martlndalc, president of tho
Trader League, who In a recctit au
dress before too Mercantile Assocla
tI6n cvt. Wilmington, Delaware, had this
to say about advertising:
"No business Is successful without
advertising. No matter how success
ful your business ycu will go back the
moment you ceaso to advertise. The
moment jou stop you will bo forgotten,
My firm annually spends $17,000 In the
local newspapers, Wc used to expend
tho money on poster and billboard ad
vertising, but wo found. -tho nowspapo:
was 'the correct medium. Thcroforo,
let mo advise you merchants, it you
want to bo successful, patronize Wil-
'mlngtbrt newspapers, for they nro for
Wilmington, l(nd thoy deserve your
support. You should adverllso In the
dally newspapers not for ono day, hut
evory day. Don't mind tho weather
Advertise winter and summer. Ad
vertise." The recent Christmas week Just
clewed was the most successful in the
history of tho Guthrlo merchants and
H was dug- to tho fact that heaiylor ad
vertising was used than heretofore.
Constant hammering will win, and
thoio Is no better tlmo to hammer
Cian from now on. Advortlso when
business Is bad, irlico tho result. Talk
tho matter over with tho advertising
department of Tho Leader, tho papor
that reaches the homes.

A New Wonder of tho Twentieth" Ctn-
Prof. FoBsenden began his work upon
the problem of wireless telephony Ib
1898, whllo carrying on his Investiga
tions -In wireless holography. At this
tlmo scientists had dovoloped three
distinct methods of sending electro
magnetls waves oft Into space from
a tall mast, or'htcnna, as It Is technic
ally termed. ' Experiments showed
that none of, these methods would do
for telephony. They gave single waves,
separated by dlBtinct Intervals. This
was not harmful for wireless telegra
phy, where ulgnais consist of a scries
.of clicks; but such single waves wore
useless for transmitting words, the
continuity of which must not bo bro
ken. Ho decided that what waa needed
was a means qr prpt'uclng long trains
of "waves, and devised apparatus fof
this purpose. Prof. Fesscnden sur
mounted the difficulties, says Har
per's Weekly, and deslKned a machlno
which would give the desired electrical
resuUs, and It Is pow In use, the ro
tating flojd making 10,000 revolutions
per minute, and has for weeks bosn
giving oh an electrical current which
changes Its direction no less than GO,
000 times per second.
Apparatus for receiving the volco en
ergy is of a comparatively simple char
acter. An atenna Is erected to divert
to raith a portion ot the energy In the
electromagnetic waves, and condens
ers built up of, plates ot a meinl which
Is a sew" conductor of electricity, sep
arated by layer; of air, together with
colls of wire, ere connected lu such u
way as to tuna theantennn to the samo
electrical pitch as the one fct the send
ing station. Once this tuning appa
ratita has been adjusted, electric oscil
lations ae set up In the circuit when
subjected to the repeated Impact of Ihn
wnve s, In the same way that the re

(Mark Twain has Just Incorporated

3o Mark Twaln,'s , rporatlon,
Well, I think that's pretty hard
On a chap that earns his living
As a dally paper bard.
Let's apply for an injunction .
Goodness knows It's that or bust,
'Cause wo can't faco competition.
With the Mark Twain humor trust.
Let us workers form a union;
Let's do something right away;
Or this trust will dictate to us
And cut down our weekly pay.
It will furnish brand-now humor
At a rato we can not meet
That is, if wo ovor hopo to
Havo a good square meal to caL
I suppose It will absorb us.
Or Just slply make us quit.
For without tho Mark Twain trade
mark Nothing will bo deemed as wit,
'Twill reduce tho prico of verses,
Cut in Twain tho cost of jokes.
That's a boon to those who pay us.
Hut it's tough on u3 poor folks,
All our lives wo'vo gaily Jested
At tyrannical combines.
Now, my brethren, wo must f-p one
Lot's draw closo our th; t;ned
Let's appeal to Mark Twain's falrnosg
If ho will not do what's right,
Wq will scorn to mnko concessions
'Gainst monopoly wo'U light!
