Tho cotton crop Is spoken of as bolng in good shapo, and good prices add to n bounteous crop will mnUo things lively. This Is oloctlon cflty among the Rd men In the Indlnn Territory. Not as much interest Is shown, hawovtr, as generally occurs. Only representa tives nro elected today, and tho vote In Pickens county Is badly split up. Popo Plus had n fnlntrng arpll yes terday. Perhaps tlio rush of plnco seokers overtaxed his strength. Para sites go in droves and mon in high placos aro forced to oiiduro tho con stant buzzing of tho posts. A cotton mill at Now Orleans has just declared a dividend of U por cent, and In addition made largo ap propriations from Its oarnlngs for Im provements. Gainesville Is ono of tho finest locations In Texas for a cot ton mill. Gainesville Messenger. Yes, also for a froo ferry, or brldgo over Hod river, but It has neither. It Is a pity that so much of tho flno fruit raised In tho Indian Terri tory could net havo boon saved for oxhibltion at tho World's Fair, SL Louis, next year. Not overy year do wo havo such exceptionally flno speci mens. It is certalnaly n gravo over sight on tho part of the World's Fair exhibit managors that something has not been dono along that line boforo now, for It Is now too lato. ii wo woro n wouiau in a woll fixed farmer's homo and had tho responsi bility and work of caring for tho homo, getting three square moals a day for four hungry mon and looking nfier thrco or four llttlo folks, wo would havo things In tho houso convenient for doing tho work or wo would havo a row. Wo would Insist upon having a good cooking range modern uten sils, a hard wood floor in tho kitchen, a washing ruachlno which a man could operate, soft water and a sink bandy, a kitchen cabinet wherein to keep things, a rofrlgorator and n clonn, whitewashed cellar easy of ncrcss. So much Is demanded of tho modern housekeeper these days that to compel her to do her work in tho old fashion, cd way Is to either send her to Jie asylum or to tho cemetery In short order. Some men whom wo kn v need to take n day off and study tho rentier. Flirting, that heartless pastime whloh all people condemn loudly and most people more nr loss slyly Induge In. Is not wholly without Its uses. Pearson's Weekly tolls of London Jewelers, holol koepers, commercial travolors and others who rosort to It for profit with fine suscoss. A young Jowolor, In particular, finds flirting to bo his most offcctlvo moth od of advertisement. On being ad vised by a friend recently to marry and settlo down, he said nothing would plcaso him better, but ho was prove ut ed from doing so by the fact that his clientele Is largely composed of inein bcrs of tho gentler sex and tnat his business prosperity depended almost solely upon his remaining slng'e and disengaged. Tho citing of this particular In stanco might scorn to Indicate that flirting for profit Is unusual and x traordlnary. Hut it Is not. Flirting is by no means tho aimless pastime It appears to be. Cynical per sons may look upon it as a kind of madness, but If It deserver. that de scription it Is certainly a madness In which thcro Is ofter no lack of method For InBtnnco, n young author may find a good deal of Inspiration for his stories In this way. Perhaps older ones would It they could but only the young nro susccptlblo to such seductions. Let us suppose that tho young au thor draws most of his characters from life and to obtain his strikingly deep and varied knowledge of differ ent types of womanhood ho has re course to flirting on quite an extensive plan. Thus ho may get lovo scenes hot from tho furnace. Ho may give a naturalness and fidelity to his action and emotion that lend a very convinc ing air of realism to his pagos. Tho artist, tho musician, the poet. tho nctor, for all that anybody but themselves may know, may frequently resort to the same spring of Inforwa tlon. Flirting Is for some people an edu cation; a school of oxporlouce, teach ing tho knowlodgo necossary to se lection of n suitable partnor. A woman does not buy tho first hat that is offered her; sho putt on one after nnothor and parados wl'.'i It be fore tho mirror, critically observing Its effect; sho carefully studios overy curve and ribbon and flower und feath er; sho discards them ono after one, until only tho most doslrablo one Is loft, and with that sho goec home happy. Now tho samo critical "trying on' of young men, the discarding of the objoctionnblo and tho se'octlon of the most desirable might malio hor ns ha-p py in her husband as sho In lu-r hat. Hut alas! while the young woman selects her hat. sho allows her hus band to select lilmsolf, and It Is tho husbnnd that Is most often the nils-nt. Somobodv lias observed th it the girl who has tho most beaux, mnkus tho best wife. Mnybo there Is somo hard sense In it. Thoro may be proCt In flirting oven when ono Is looking for nothing mora than tho mate that Is most suitable. Of course, thero Is tho otbof Blclo of tho matter. Flirting for pleasure or profit Is by no means lnvambly a safe gnmo to play. Edge ! tojis aro a' ways dangerous In tho hands of tho Inox porlonced and overcnthiisliistlc. Kan sas City World.

Whr Mont Cook Aliru-a Stir Their Under Uuo Way Only "Tako n good lump of fresh butter and roll It In Hour, placo It In n lined saucepan with a half pint of good, rich cream, stir it gently ovor a low lire, al ways tho same way, till it be;;iiw to simmer." This recipe for tho ranking of melted butter Is quoted from an old fashioned cookery book of a century ago, but the direction to stir "alxvnys tho same wny" Is observed as. religiously todn. as it was then, and probably will bo fo a thousand ycaf-s to come. All cooks of all nations stir t only tho Biiine way,, but "also from east to wost, n sure Indication that tho prac tlcc originated with sun worshipers. Speaking of stirring brings to mind that In most Cngllsh households coun try ones nt least te prnctlco of the whole family Joining to stir tho Christ mas plum pudding is still In voguo. Thero nro many peculiar, old fash ioned superstitions connected with cooking. For Instance, In Scotland, when onr cakes aro being baked, It Is still cus tomary to bnak off n llttlo piece nnd throw It Into tho Ore. At ono tlni( whenever n baking was made which wnu perhaps onco a month only a cnf wns mado with nine knobs on it. Kuch of tho compnny broko one off. and, throwing It tehlnd him, said, "This I giro to theo; preservo thou my sheep," msntlonlng the nnrao of n noxious animal fox, wolf oreaglo. A roast pheasant Is usually sent up with the tall feathers. This practice is a memorial of tho dnys when a pen cock was skinned beforo ronotlng and when cooked was sewed Into Its plum- ago again, Its beak gilded nnd ho served. Tossing tho jmncuke Is another Inter esting food superstition. Formerly tho master of tho house wns always called upon to toss the Shrove Tuesday pan cake. Usually be did It so clumsily that the contents of the pan found their wny to the Moor, wheu n flno was de manded by the cook. Tho custom is still kept up at Westminster school, whero n pancake Is toswd over the hnr and scrambled for. The one who so- cures It Is rewarded with a guinea. The origin of tho cross on hot crosp buns Is n mntter of dispute. There Is little doubt thnt cakes partly divided Into four quarters were mndo long be fore tho Christian era. At ono tlmo It wns believed that bread baked on Good Friday would never grow moldy, nnd a piece of It grated wns kept In every house, being supposed to bo n sover eign remedy for almost any kind of ailment to which man Is subject In many parts of England It Is con sidered unlucky to offer a mlnco pie to a guest.
