qua weather. Everybody enjoying
Sunday the temperature went higher
than any day this season and before
the day was out the heat was very op
pressive. It did not deter the crowds
from coming though for the trains
came in packed each time. The ex
cursion on Sunday from the Surles
line brought 468 people in two special
trains. Allen Jackson the traveling
passenger agent came with them and
did everything in his power to make
the people happy and comfortable.
All the towns along the Sarles
branch of the Great Northern were
well represented. The train ran on
good time reaching here about one
o'clock and returning at eleven Sun
The farmer's road excursion
brought a goodly number also and all
the towns along that line were well
Although the people came here on
Sunday for a good time it is a matter
of remark how decorously the Sab
bath is spent and good interest taken
in the Chautauqua services. The reg
ular religious services used by all
Chautauqua associations is followed
as closely as possible. The vesper
services are especially interesting.
The sacred concerts by the band are
listened to with great enjoyment.
Monday dawned bright and beauti
ful but not so hot as Sunday. A good
breeze stirred the atmosphere all day
making it very comfortable. Monday
morning's program was uneventual
given over to the class exercises in
which great interest is being taken.

attended each morning. In addition to
the W. C. T. U. number is Mrs. Flora
M. Naylor of Larimore prominent in
the work in the state.
Mrs. Margaret J. Blair's lessons on
domestic art each day are highly in
teresting and instructive.
Monday afternoon's program was a
good one. The Elma B. Smith Com
pany from Chicago gave literary and
musical selections. They consist of
Miss Elma B. Smith, reader and child
impersonator, Miss Merle Tillotson,
contralto, and Chas. E. Clarke and B.
Alcock, bass and tenor soloists. All
goood entertainers. Pitt Parker the
chalk talk humorist and landscape ar
tist entertained the audience also. He
is refreshing, full of wit and original
ity and gives good Entertainment. The
crowd adjourned from the auditorium
to the ball ground to witness the game
between Edmore and Chautauqua.
The program for the evening was
good, about on the same lines as the
afternoon with the additiou of Prof.
1-ange. in his lecture "The Call of The
Wild." Pmt". Skoovegaard, the violin
ist contributed violin solos. The peo

Notice will be taken of the liberal
space given to the W. C. T. U. this year
on the Chautauqua program. There
are prominent leaders here such as
Mrs. Mary Hopper, thte national organ
leer, Mrs. Preston Anderson, the state
president and numerous of the state
officers. Meetings are held each morn
ing. Notice cannot help but be taken
though, of the lack of Interest and en
thusiasm in comparison with former
years. We have wondered with such
Inspiring speakers fiere and the great
facility to further the work. Talks
with numerous women give different
reasons. One prominent club woman,
once a great worker in the W. C. T. U.
now giving her time and thought more
to the federation of women's clubs,
says card and literary clubs are re
sponsible, the younger generation giv
ing tlieir time and thought to these,
than as their mothers did, to philan
thropic work and civic reform. An
other prominent woman says the great
moral advancement of our state leaves
less requirement for the work. This
sounds tangible. A talk with a man
that during the past administration
less liquor has been illlcltely sold than
ever before in the history of the state.
Showing better laws and greater en
forcement of the law in this regard.
This of course gives less requirement
for the work of the W. C. T. U.

Oklahoma Enters Statehood
A Liberal Dowry and
The creation of the state of Ok
lahoma ends a long controversy in
which, from its beginning, Texas
has taken a lively interest. No oth
er section of the Union has so direct
an interest in the affairs of the new
state as Texas. Public sentiment
here almost unanimously favored
double statehood for Oklahoma and
congress to admit them as separate
states is but another instance in
which vicious partisanship has made
an indelible impress upon the history
of the country. Each of these Ter
ritories can show more qualifications
for statehood than was possessed by
any other state at the time of its ad
mission, and each is now far ahead
in population of many of the Eastern
states whose representatives bitterly
opposed double statehood.
Time and again the- government has
made treaties with the Indians, which
guaranteed that their domain should
never be incorporated with separate
areas, but should stand alone in state
hood when admitted. All of these
treaties have been broken upon no
better pretext than that a soverign
power can execute no obligation
which it may not rescind at pleasure.
However, this is not the first time the
government has broken its plighted
faith, and it will probably not be the
last The supremacy of the East in
the senate was thought to be menaced
by the addition of four Western sen
ators with environments as radical as
those of Kansas on the north and Tex
as on the south, and In view of prac
tical politics treaty pledges weigh but
little against a consideration of that
The new state will be the first that
has been admitted which came into the
union with a large population. With
in twelve years Oklahoma has grown
from an uninhabited waste to a pop
ulation of S00.000 and Indian Terri
tory has something in excess of that.
It has a railroad mileage slightly be
low one-half that of Texas, although
Its area is only a fraction greater than
one-fourth that of Texas. Its agri
cultural products last year amounted
to over $100,000,000, and its manufac
tures exceeded $25,000,000 in value.
It is larger than all New England by
8000 square miles, and if it keeps up
the pace it lias .maintained during the
last five years the census of 1910 will
show it to be the most productive state
for agricultural produevts in the
Union, in proportion to area.
All Texas will rejoice because of
the promotion of these neighbors to
the dignity of statehood. Aside from
questions of sentiment, it is to the in
terest of Texas that Oklahoma shotlld
prosper, both industrially and politi
cally. While many Texans have joined
in the inevitable rush to the new state
this movement will in the end extend
to Texas, and add heavily to its popu
lation by drafs from the most desira
ble class of immigrants, drawn from
the farmers of the south and the cen
tral west. The similarity of condi
tions in soil, climate, production and
character of population in Texas and
Oklahoma, ties them together in a
community of interest that cannot be

the arms must have special attention.
Exercise them by swinging dumbbells

does housework, the sweeping will
help, and some light washing will give
the arms work enough to strengthen
the muscles. Besides the work, there
must be the softening process. After
