Tulsa is not pulling off any big si unt in the booming business,
but for a safe quiet piogiessivc giowtli it is the best city in the
southwest. Come and see.
What has become of the gieal leronnatorj movement'.' .Mnj

Where can llieie be round a truer fiiend lo the coloud race

zer is indeed a tine deiiiociat.
The sanitarj officers should insist on the street sweepcis visit
iug Kast Archer and North (.iiceiiwood at least oiue a week, because
filth confined in one part or the city is just as dangeious to all parts
of the citj alike. It is just as imporiaiil to the people f Hie High
class resilience distrii t as to anj oilier to see thai all pails of the cilj
is clean and heallhlul.
North Cliceiiwood in the vicinity of the Hill and Ouiley building
is assuming an uptoduto metropolitan air, thanks to the energetic
class of jouug men who opened up business in the east end. Thej
are all worthy of our patronage and should have it.
A steamer doing ie.-eiie work at Clajlon, La., struck an iron

two white men.
The crowded condition of the Colored schools in this city and the
many children who are out of school for that very reason wouui

Tulsa might well patent after .Muskogee in the city school plan.
That cilj has the best school sjstem in the southwest.

The musical anil recital to lw given at the First lhiptisl church

There is no greater philanthropist' nil earth than the liewspajier
edilor. Had you thought of that? The editors, as a mle, give more
to the public thin any other class of men or public servants and
they nro usuallj paid in curses, kicks, knocks, etc. There is no
power that will equal that of a newspaper, whether it be for good or
for evil. The Colored Press of this country aie. doing mine for the
general good of the race than any other known agency, and jet, in
spite of this, we civ often ruthlessly abused and licensed of all kinds
of mean things wlmi in fact our gieatest shortcoming is in the past

WHERE WIND REALLY BLOWS

Kansas City Star, tho high winds of.
tho open prairio nro oven moro to be
dreaded than tho whirling forco of
"Thoro are bomo things that an
old resident learns out thcro from ob
servation nnd experience Ono is
that when you are facing a hard
wind, you must keep your mouth
shut. Ono day I was traveling with
a tenderfoot from the east. Ho was
n long, slender man, about six feet
and threo inches long, and about six
inches wide. Ho had no moro meat
on Ids bones than a fork handle. As
I was saying, ono day wo started to
rido ncros3 tho prairie, when (he
wind camo up in our faces, blowing
at tho rato of ono hundred miles an
hour or so.
"That tenderfoot opened his
mouth to say somolhing to mo. I
heard him mnko a curious noiso and
looked around to sco what was tho
matter, nnd saw that ho had inad
vertently swallowed about six or sev
en barrels of wind. Ho looked liko
an Inflated air cushion, and seemed
to bo about four times his natural
sizo. It seemed toset him sort of
crazy, and ho jumped out of tho
buggy. When ho lit on tho Riound.
ho bounded Into tho air liko a rub
ber ball, and then went bounding
jacross tho prnino liko a tumblowced
(beforo tho wind. At tho end of
ithrco miles ho fell Into n canj'on,
iwhcro tho wind couldn't get at him
'and stopped, but it was n week be
jforo ho was back to his normal nze."

Henri Robert, o leading French
criminal barrister, held enthralled a
distinguished gathering at tho TJni-
(Texsito dca Annalcs a few days ago
,aa ho showed how ho would havo de
fended Lady Mncbcth.
In tliis impassioned defense of tho
itrngio queen, Mr. Robert said alio was
.not tho shrew eho was sometimes
"painted. Her husband, whom she
'loved dearly, was always absent on
warliko expeditions. When ho re
turned for a brief spell he spent his
days hunting nnd his nights in the
grcnt hall of tho castlo in drunken
revelry until ho nnd his friends fell
asleep in their armor. Was it not
.natural thut sho yearned for some
thing, she know not what, that would
put an end to her life of loneliness,
iinonotony and weariness?
"Another point,"-6aid Mr. Robert,
'"which I would nrguo in defenso of
imy client n point on which Shnke
spenro is Bilcnt is tho long and
deadly feud between Lady Macbeth
,and tho family of tho old King Dun
icnn. Her first husband, her fafher-lin-law,
her brother and her grandfa
ther had nil been killed by Duncan's
grandfather, nnd sho only saved her
iown lifo by fleolnir to Ross, where
' , w u r i
alio met General Mncbcth, whom shei
nfterwnrd married. A vendetta exist
ed botween her family nnd that of
Duncan. That is tho defenso I put
forward for Lady Macbeth."
