The advance of the country in pro
gress and prosperity, under Wilson'
administration, reaches such stupend
ous figures, that the human mind i3
almost staggered in its effii ts at the:r
comprehension; and when we compar:
them with the one hundred and fifty
hillion dollar of debt alrerely incur -
red by the European countries in thei
great world war-which sum i
miunting daily it seems that no ra
tional man could cast a vote against

Before going to court Walton re

LAYNE & BOWLER CO. NOTES.I
Mr. S .O. Scoggins, the genial man
ager of the Welsh office of Layne &I
Bowler Co., Imade a busirness ti i) An
through Crowley and Eunice the ii
first of the week, returning to Welsh r
Wednesday evening. V
Word from the Stuttgart, Atk.,
branch of the company is that husi
ness is booming and a nice line of con
tracts for i igatioln wells have lben Y i
I It is nowth the ettim o r whe; ol
the two saddest and the three sweet- t
est words in the English language We
are being used overtime. The book- 1
keeper in his cell, pens the sad words: lio
Please Remit"' and the multitudes ttº
take up the sweet refrain: ''En- on
closed Find Check." ns
We are glad it is thus forpros- se
perity is the best a'lvertisment one La
could desire. As the rice industry in fot
this seceion depcndls largely upon ir- ph
trigation wells, it makes us feel goodl (s
r to tink .as:
rto think that we are in the well busi- er1
fness and have made prosperity possi- the
ble to many. And the success of the mi
Vrice farmers in this territory is the pa
success of every business firm in this
SThis does not sound much like well BC
y notes, but the bookkeepr just has to to'
f rave a little every so often, and if fo
he thinks he sees any connection he- do
s 'tween the well business and prosperity ta
0 why just let him have his little say. W
A representative of the .Journal thr
asked us for news and notes on the .;l
's business, but we have used all our tit
y space in the above outburst so we =e
