We are in rec ipt of an sd Iress de- j ]
lirered by State Superintendent of
E3ncati?>n McMihta ?>n TneUou;
try Sch ool Problem " The address i? ,
thoughtful a*id to th ? pMnr, It should ]
bs iu the hinds of er-ry citiz-n. Mr. 1
McMahan makes plaia the importance (
of the so u'ion of this problem. The <
' 1 * - ^ '?? t - --3 I .
points oroogac out iu me au'w nc
worthy of beiog impressed upon the '
people of the State, and we eh >11 bri? 11? j
state them: ,
1. "It (the country school problem) i
is the problem of cik agricultural <
emancipation, of onr indutrii! p-os- '
2. ''The #ouut-y school problem is ]
the problem of good government." 1
lutelligent citizenship i* dependent !
upon it. (
3. It is ''the problem of UiveoiSed i
life, of all round interest." Educated
farmers all need to attain educated
methods in firming.
4. It is "the problen of our na ional
vigbr" Cities and towns mu^t bej
backed by the country." The ciiy
seems to require a back coantry to
draw upon for rein forcemeats " i
o It is "indeed the problem of the i
preservation of our CaucaVi in civilizition
and parity of blooU."
Mr. McMahan doe? not think that j
the one t^ing needed U longer term*,
l?nf cnepi-al thina* are needed: fH 1
O V / |
better teaching aud mere intelligent .
effort towards moulding character, i
(2) batter conrsj of study, (3) better
moral sapport from local authorities,
(4) better supervision (5) better or- (
gamzation and division of Ifbe school ]
itself, (6) bettei financial support. i
The impossibility to enlist txo regi- 1
ments io the S.>ath for the war in the '
Philippine* indicate! very strongly (
that the South is opposed to the war, (
with its policy of expansion, and yet (
the South i* the fighting sectioa of the !
United States. The recruiting officers (
at Fjrt McPherson, Gi , bad succeed- j,
ed a week or two ago in enlisting: oily
635 men, and at Fort Sam Houston,
Texas, only 549 men. The war deparimenfc
will, therefore, depend
upon Northern and Western man to
complete these regiments. The indifference
in the South is easily explained.
It is not a lack of patriotism,
but the South cm have no heart in the
' war. Unlike Northerners, Southerners
cannot fi*ht for money alone;
they fight on a higher plane. Southerners
lo/e principles, Jand it is for
principle that they will fisrht. For
this reason, the Southerner makes the
best fighter. They feel that these
poor wretches in the Philippines are
strno'orliner for their liberties, inst as
much as the Americans did in the war j
of the revolution. {

"There are signs of hot times in 1
politics next year."?Columbia Record. (
Hot times are not strange times in j
the politics of this State. The masses j
of the people have about concluded i
nevertheless to keep cool in politics. 1
The ofSce-seekers may get as hot as *
they please. i
The number of Dames ibat are being e
added to the Business League is very J

therefore, try to have something to do '
all the time. (

my duty, itot only to you, but to my !
country, I shall demand of you tbe
most impL.'-it obedienc?, and pledge
myself, ih> t if not rendered s\i lifgly,
? will eufcice.it.
There are,''however, two modes by
which men can be governed. One is
through th'! heart?the other, by tbe
iron despotism of tbe military law. I
jreatly prefer to govern you by the
former mf.hoc?, by appeals to your
sense of n; _,priety, 10 your patriotism,
and to ail !:e higher and nobler instinct
ox ar natures. All good men,
all true patriots, will readily submit to
a government so mild, so paternal;
but if there are any who are so refractory
that 'nese appeals caanot reach
them, they must expect that the old
letter of tbe law will be app.ied to
them. In locking, however, upon tbe
materials of which this regiment is
somDOsed. T must confess that I appre
bend but lit-*le difficulty in its management.
Iq if? ranks, I recognize many
who hold honorable positions at home,
beads of families, and even ministers
5f the Gospel. Such men as these
:ould enter tbi< war with no other
motives than those of the purest patriotism,
and from a wish to render an
essential service to their country.
Such men will Jcnoic their duty, and
will be willing to perform it. I have
told yoa, soldier?, what I will demand
yon. I will now tell jou what you
have a righ< to expect of me, and I
must confess that I feel a deep responsibility
resting apon me You have
committed yourselves to my care, to
my gnidance and direction. It is yonr
right, to expect that I should care
for you, that I should treat you with
feindoess and courtesy, that I should
subject you to no unnecessary hardships
or exposure, and that 1 should
s*p> fhaf vnnr ftnmfnrtR are ministerp.fi
:o as far as c'rcumstances will permit.
Bat, remember, there are certain hardships
and exposures incident to the
life of the so'dier, and these you must
jxpect to bear like men, without a
murmur. N doubt you will some:imes
suffer?but this I promise you,
:hat the commissary, quartermaster
ind surgeon shall all do their duty,
md render yon as comfortable as possible.
In short, soldiers, I promse
to feel for you, an1 to act
loward vou as a father feels and
lets towards bis children. But remember,
thit he is the unkind -t and
uost injudicious of all fa1 her-, who
iither flitters the faults of hi* chi dren,
or fails to administer a who'eso:n.* rejuke
when it is necessary. While,
:kerefore, the humblest soldier io uie
anks can at all times g*in access to
ne when he n in trouble, and will at
ill times fiad in me a friend who will
edress bis wrongs and sympathize
with him in his sorrows, the highest
md the prouiest need no* f x iect to
iscape rebuke or punishment if he be
juiltv of any neglect of du:\ r impropriety
of conduct.
I have coou-, soldiers, to ahar- ><?ur
ate wi'li yon, either for weal or t\r
??oe. I iiave -come with you to win a
semtnon slorv or share a common
rrare. All oar hardships and exjostires
I exp. c; to share. I intend to
at what you oaf, sleep where yon
deep, toil with you, sailer with you,
3ght with yen, and die with you, if
ny country demands the sacrifice.
And to yon, offhers allow tne to
tdiafew words oflriendiy adtnoniion.
Engage .1 as yon are in a couanon
cause, wkh the sime ends io ac:omplisb,

^ourselves, uerer let ihem piss to tbe

not by any laxity of disci)line

The rush of divorce seekers to Oklahoma
has began again. At the openiug
of that couutry the Legislature
passed a very liberal divorce liw. and
thousands of peoble from New York
city and other large citiis of the East,
aud even from London, rashsd to thot
territory, and after a three-months'
stay entered snit for divorce from an
objoctionable linsband or wife. The
li.ib and the poor aliko availed themselves
of the liberal divorce provisions
of our law to get a divorce, bat Congress
two years ago knocked the business
in the head by passing a law
making it necessary for a residence of
one yen* before divorce' suit could be
filed. This law, from all indications,
was passed in the interest of South
Dakota, but the Legislature of South
Dakota passed a law making it necessary
to reside in the State one year
befoie suit for divorca coald be filed,
hence the rush to that State, with its
cold climate, has stopped, and Oklahoma
once more will be the divorce
Mecca. Lawyers who formsrlv resided
in Oklahomi Territory have
located in New York city, and all are
busily eogaged in sending people away
where they can obtain a divorce eas;Jy.
These lawyers have agents in all the
large cities of the United States, and
