YOUR FOUNTAIN PEN
The editor of the London Mail
sought to remedy a world-wide com
plaint when he prevailed upon a pen
expert to write an article on "What
is the matter with your pen?" In
any event, here are some of the
pointers the expert gives the vast
army of soldiers from either too wet
or too dry fountains pens.
Many fountain pen troubles result
from apparently trival happenings.
For example, the man who lends a
friends his pen must not be surprised
if it never works quite as well after
wards. No amount of fair wear and
tear will cause a pen to deteriorate
so much as a change of hands. This
is because very few people possess
precisely the same touch. Again, the
angle at which a pen is held varies
with almost every individual.
Of the millions of fountain pen us
ers in this country, it is surprising
how few give them a thorough clean
ing. When in regular use a pen
should be cleaned at least once n
month. Many a pen in constant use
works all the better for a rest now
and then. This is because the rough
er paper causes the nib to heat slights
ly at times, causing blots and scrntcn

MUST REPORT ALL BIRTHS'
TO COUNTY HEALTH BOARD
Oklahoma had been a state but a
short time until she saw the necessi
ty of a law requiring that every child
born within her boundaries should
be registered. This law requires that
a birth certificate shall be sent by
the physician to the local registrar,
who in turn shall file the original
certificate with the State Vital Sta
tistic Department where it shall be
kept for future reference.
Bryan County, through the efforts
of the Health Department and the
local registrar, is putting forth every
effort possible to secure a complete
recmd of every child born within its
border.-. The responsibility for the
registration for these births is plac
ed upon the attending physician. The
law requires and duty demands that
they make a report immediately up
on the birth of every child. The legal
benefits of registrations are many
and the failure of a physician to make
a complete and clear report is not'
only doing the child, and probably its
parents, an injustice, but he is vlo-l
lating one of the best laws upon our'
We register our cattle, our horses,
and our hogs because registration i
adds to the value of them, and be
cause we are proud of them, and we
should be equally as careful and
interested in the future rights in in
terest of our babies.
We do not make these statements
in a s-pirit of criticism, but rather an I
appeal for more complete birth re-'
turns and for the future welfare of!
our babies. We know that there are
many demands on the busy Doctors',
time, but we know very few Doctors,
wiui nuuiu nut tune me uiiie w uu
a good tum, and one which the law
prescribes as your duty.
There is nothing the physician can
do that may prove of more value to
the baby than to see that its birth
is properly registered. Bryan county
now stands at about the head of the
list "of Counties from which complete
returns are being received, but we
know that each month a few 'births
occur within the boundaries of this
County which are not being report
ed, and for this reason we ask the
cooperation of every Doctor in order
that wc may have it said that no birth
occurrs which is not clearly and pro

"Reminds Me Of The Preacher, Buying Thejioss"
When "Ydtfhf Truly" was
a lad, as many" of yon doubt
leBN know I lived back in the
forks of the "creek. Year
before Oil Stock Peddlers in
vaded the countryside, and
about the only time the na

when the "Blue-Enamel

rounds in the Fall.

A well known Preacher once wanted to buy a horse so instructed the "town jockey"
to bring a good $30.0(1 or $40.00 animal around the next day. The jockey laughed
up his sleeves. Preacher', are easy pickin'. he chuckled. No doubt the average
preacher knows just about as much about the surface of a horse as he knows about
the surface of the moon.
So he selected from his herd a stove-tip. foundered, wind-broken old pessle-tall,
with the hots and distemper and lead him up to the parsonage.
"Hey! Parson, here's your boss'." be shouted. "How much is he?" asked the Rev
erend (lentleman, "Forty Dollars. Parson," came the prompt reply .
"Just a minute, I'll send you out a check." said the Minister as he reached for his
fountain pen. "Wait a minute Parson, ain't you goin' to come out and "look him
over." cried .the astonished horseman.
"Why no, I'm not going to look him over. I'm a Preacher, not a
