getting the Easter eggs, of coune, and
wore well chaperoned by Misses Turn

and Mrs E. L. Flckel.
After enjoying a few hours romp in
the clean, white sand, the littlo folks
were called In to eat lunMi, which they
did with as hearty a will as they play
ed, and nil voted the occasion a most
enjoj able one. Au egg-eating contest
proved quite amusing and we believe
was really enjoyed by tho youngsters.
Divld Kile carried off tho laurels by
dovourlng ten hard-boiled eggs. Beryl
Taylor was a close becond, eating eight
they are still both well and calling

North Flat News Letter.
Dear Editor and Readers:
This leaves us oil in fair shape. The
smallpox scare Is subsiding at present,
no new cases nro reported and If pres
ent conditions contlnuo a few days
longer we presumo tho quarantine will
bo lilted. Kvorybody is too busy to
visit when the weather is fit. Forgan
is steadily growing. Willie Coultrup,
of Ivanhoo, was visiting with his cous
ins, Orin and George DuBols, the latter
part of the week. J. O. Strickland and
V. A. Coldwator sowed oats Saturday.
This is A prll 1st and it rained last night
nnd it is snowing today.
Now I? the time to sit down and look
the coming crop situation In the clear
est light possible. Wo can talk about
snow falling in July and skating In A(T-
gust but summer is sure to come ind
with It the burning rays of old "Sol".
The dry winds are sure to sweep tho
burning stubbles before the end of the
year. We all remember four or fivo
years ago when It rained continuously
during tho fall. How scientists told
us that an earthquake had shifted us
over into Missouri. But threoAyears of
drouth have brought us to a realization
thst we are still horu In Oklahoma and,
Beaver count?. Land boomers have
told us that it rains more than It ueU
to but tho government records cover
ing forty years prove that tho state
ment Is nothing but fallacy. It may
be better distributed and farmers have
learned a lot in forty years.
Invariably abundance Is followed
with famine, heavy rainfall with drouth
and cold with heat. It is theso ele
ments that control tho wheels of indus
try. Our ground is at present thorough
ly saturated with molsturo to a groat
depth, Wo have a great abundance) of
ready moisture to respond to the vital
izing energy of spring, but don't let us
delude ourselves with the Idea thnt wo
can go out and raiso an abundant crop
without good scientific work. ,'It f up
to us, we have everything In our favor.
We have no way of knowing how soon
our excessive rainfall may change to
one of devastating drouth,
Later from North Flats,
Fdrgan is booming. A now restaur
ant and tho Big Joe Lumber Co. oflico
are among tho new buildings.
The graders are now at work on tho

Oklahoma My Home.
to hie scnooLs or the state
Sqmo people sing of Italy,
And call her, "Land that's blest,"
But, Oklahoma, I to theo
Sing, for I lave thee best.
1 love the sun's bright golden beam
Shining go bright, so fnr;
I love the peaceful quiet gleam
Of every brilliant star.
I love tho gentlo Southern breeze
' A breath of summer flowers;
Thy plains so broad and bare of trees,
I gaze on them for hours.
Sometimes I love, simply to roam,
While Mother Nature tells
Me, Oklahoma Is my home
My heart with gladness swells.
Let others sing of other states,
South land or golden West,
But as for me, I think the fates,
Made Oklahoma best.
Because there are no bluer skies,
Than thoso wo daily see;
Because her beauty never dies,
She's fair as fair can be.
Bccauso no (lowers overgrew
Moro fragrant or more fair;
No citizens tho nation knew,
Could with our own compare.
And so I think God surely meant,
To make a Paradise,
So on our stato the blessings sont,
A heav'u beforo our eyes

Whero'ere I chance to roam,
Oh, Oklahoma, I am proud
To own you as my home.
