The rain Thursday night and Fri
day sorter broke up the drouth, filled
the ponds and cisterns and gave old
Mother Earth a good soaking. Sat
urday was a fine February day, but
by Sunday morning we were getting
what snow Kansas and Nebraska had

inches, and the wheat crop is saved
Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Moore re
turned from their visit to Texas Fri
day, and of course report a splendid
time, although they have not yet de

considerably improved in health, but
is having a hard time of it learning

Mr. Herman Meier, of Florence,
was over to the hub week before last,
to have his teeth sharpened and re
paired, they just have so much to cat
over that way if a fellow gets his
share he has to have his teeth in trim.
Mr. Meier says he's out of politics
for good, and we forgot to ask him
how about religion, but we did ask
him about the Bull Moose in his sec
tion, and he said he hadn't seen any
running in the woods in that section.
Ain't that strange? we supposed the
woods was just full of 'em maybe

necessary for every graduate to have
at least six months practical farm ex
perience. This requirement will

The epidemic of small-pox in Okla

cost to a community of one infectious
disease. The people arc leaving
their homes and places of business
and the section is quarantined.
If the people would practice vac

only a small per cent of the cost of
It may be truly said that at this
time there is no grounds for the pres

knowledge and prejudice of the peo

antiseptic precautions taken, severe
reactions rarely occur.
Small-pox may, very easily, be
brought from Oklahoma to Missouri.
