Attend tho meeting called at the city hull tonight nnd arrange for the ontortalnment of our Oklahoma friends who will visit us Thursday. The Gorman government Is cons Id crlng thu advisabllty of oncottring the growing of cott m In some if lu colonies und has railed a coiiferac of Its colonial governors to that end General Pearson, the Boor lepreten Intlve, Is to appear before Governor Hand to prove his charge that tho KngllKh are using Louisiana territory as a basis of supplies. The Southwestern Cattle Glowers' association, composed of cattle ranch men of Oklahoma and Indian Terri tory -nnd th. Panhnndle of Texas, r- rontly organlxed, Is probably the lar gest of the kind In the world. England Is to call on her colonies for troops, and It Is said If they res pond the English army will be equal to that of any other nation. That alliance bstwoen Japan and England menus more than the mere words on the treaty paper. Gen. Knnston Is quoted ns paying that tho Philippine Island nro is peaceful as Kentucky. Just what he moans Is hard to determine, but if what he says is the truth It seems inoro huldlora must bo sent to our far nwny torrltory. Ardmore lias an object lesson pre sented thorn by thoso of Oklahoma In thulr recent purchase of a woolen tnlJI. Surely Ardraoro can duplicate the' amount of caeh required and a. company can put in a cotton mill hero which would pay Its projectors from tho very start. Andrew Carnegie, It would seem, is dividing his time between writing c hecks for libraries and writing books. At any rate,' another volume from his pen or from his secretary's type writerwill appear shortly. Thf vol time will be cnlld "The Pro im e . Itutlness," or something of th kin l and coming from snch a aur-f ri : man of bualnens, doubtless ther wil be many who will want to read h book. In a recent address before V Authors' Club In New York. Mr d ncglo said that he had been twice blaek-bnllml by the organisation be fore being flnnlly nOmlUedt On the- first occasion he thought the reason was that Is was euipected thaUhe was not the author of the book he claimed. ami the second time ho wna rtJoi,tod because no man could b both rich and it good author. A small fragment of history not generally known Is that the United States most northern postoincc at Point Barrow, Is ISO miles north of Nome, Alaska, and nearer the north pole than the northernmost part of Iceland. The women In an Oklahoma county mistake the assesor for a book agent. and many of them closo the ddor In his face and threaten to "sic" the log on him. This Is n valuable pointer for Assessor Roberta, and we hope ho will protect himself accordingly. Much Importance Is attached to the forthcoming grain report of the gov ernment giving ostimatus of the amount of wheat In the hands of farm ers. This amount Is variously estimat ed at 134,000.000 to 16S.O0O.O00 bush els. . The blow Uio British havo received from the Boers In their recent en counter Is certainly a severe one, and shows that the strength of Transvaal still exists. England today has on her study enp, but with her bull-like ten acity, will order another shipment of Tommy Adklns'to the front at once. Here Is a little piece of good season able advice right now, plant trees and be sure that they are planted right planted In the right place and that the right varieties are planted. Remember too, that street trees nnd shade trees of every kind should not be permitted to branch out under six feet from the ground. Oklahoma City has secured a wool en mill and work on the building will begin within ten days as the mnchln ery Is to be shipped nt once. The com pany will be known ns the Oklahoma City Woolen Mills Company, will have n I50.A00 paid up capital, every dollar of which will be owned by home peo ple. Previous to appointing General "Joe" Whcler to ,i command In the .nr with Spain, I'rosldent McKlnley consulted the lato Senator Davis, of Mlnnosotn, about tho matter, "I think It would be a splendid appointment," said Mr. Davis. "I am a living witness of Joe Wheeler's grit nnd persistence. During the civil war he chased me like tho dovll through five states." Archibald Roosevelt discussed the prince with grent vigor to somo of his schoolmates the othor day. "Why," he said, "he nln't like any prince I ever heard of. He didn't come up In n char lot drawn by white liorsos at all. He rode In a carriage Just llko ours. I don't think he's much of a prince," the smnll boy sniffed. "Ho looks just like any other man made of meat, you know." No wonder Arlsona wants statehood the Uluckwell News says: President Roosevelt Ms npKlnted Edward Kent, a "coon" to the position of chief Justice of the supreme court of that territory. Just Imagine his obony lion or addressing a white man thus: "Stan' up an' ho sword to tell th trufe. de hole trufe, an' nullln' but do trufe, 80 help you Gawd." It appears that the pressure of th maohlno has been effective ngaln, and that President Itooeovelt has felt, call od upon to surrender to the enemies of n merit rule In the public service Ho has been prevailed upon to sign the permanent census bill In time to turn some three thousand relatives of congrossmon Into the public build Ings nt Washington regardless of the civil serrvlce rules.

The vary acme of achievement In tho transmission of messages would seem to hare been reached in tho wlrelet telephone system which bss recently been developed by Professor A. Fred- crick Collins, an electrical engineer re siding In Philadelphia, writes Waldon Fawcett In Harper's Magazine for February. Spoken words are transmit ted great distances through the ground without tho use of a connecting wire and In" accordance with n plnn totally different from that of tho Marconi sys torn of wireless Mocrnphr. The Collins system simply takes ad vantage of tho fnet that there nre nat ural electrical currents In evldenco fllghtly below tho surface of the onrtb nt any point that tuny be selected, nnd by this invention currents of this chir acter nro iillllzcM to on use n How of electricity between two Instruments stationed nliovo the surface of the earth. The only underground inclm nlsm employed consists of smnll zinc wire screens which nro burled in shal low holes, one at the sending station and tho other at the receiving station. Above these nro tripods supporting transmitting and receiving apparatus such as U employed in ordinary tele phony, n wire nITordlug connection In each case with the buried screen. When tho electricity from a storage battery Is tnrnetl on, sounds of all kinds may be sent through the trans mitter and. hoard In ninny Instances even more distinctly than were a regu lar overhend telephone employed. The Collins Invention In Its simplest form Is adapted to tending a message but one way that In. It Is not possible to utilize a receiver ns u transmitter nnd reply to a mesi-ago received, but tho transmitter and receiver nre each equipped with nn nnnox for perform ing the opposite function, so that to ull Intents nnd purposes this new tele phono Is not different from the Instru ments nlreudy In use. It Is claimed that truth crushed to earth will rise again, and that no ques tion Is ever 'settled until It Is settled right. Tt Is at least In order to get out of these hopeful sayings all the consoi tlon one can.

"In mild weather." ays n gentleman fanner, quoted by the Philadelphia Itecord. "my horses and cattle sleep nil eld, and sometimes I wander softly ninnng them In the moonlight. It Is strange to see how they He. with every bend pointed In the same direction, the direction from which the wind Is blow ing. Do you know why that Is? It Is because they have In them nn Instinct of fear, and they front the wind so that their keen noses may catch In stantly the flrfct'lirenth of an approach ing danger. Poor things! All you have to do Is to approach softly from behind, nnd you can be right in among them before thoy nre aware of It. My horses arc even more cautious than my cnttle, for they. In addition to fac ing the wind, sleep nlso with one ear cocked backward. Then I have a dog thnt sleeps not only facing the wind and with one ear cocked, but with one eye open also. lie Is, for sure, a cow ard."
