SWEAR OFF AND SWEAR AGAIN! Swcii r oft? Sure and tlnii swear it your foot tslips. Every day in llu year ia u good day to swear off. On tin' whole we think more of every day resolutions- than we do of Jcw Year's resolutions. The fact is you'll probably have to renew 'em every day if yon keep 'em. No, you won't make a resolution bo cause you're afraid you can't keep it'.' Well, peiT.'U us to say that you are the limit. If you feel (hat way ubout it, you ouglii to be bored lor t lie fool ish bug that, is KiiawiiiK on a viial part, of your brain. Now, do you sup pose for a moment that yon would ev er learn to skate if you were nfri'id to go on the Ice? l'o you suppose that Columbus would ever have touched the shores of a new conti nent if he had been afraid to venture out on unknown seas? Come to fig ure it out, did anybody who was afraid to try it ever accomplish any worthy achievement? "Notions venture, nolliiiiK Rain,'1 is a true saying and worthy of ac ceptation. The men who do things in this mundane sphere are men who lesolve ml resolve auuln, unabashed by failure and ever rc-idy lo resolve and. to ,lry again.. Wherefore, make your resolution today if you didn't do it yesterday or the day before, make another tomor row and two more the next day and then soak them all down with a migh ty resolution to keep the whole bunch. Swear off your meanness, whatever it may be immoderate cussin', pro fane imbibing of bad licker, and all other unprofitable practices, back biting, hating your neighbor, grouch in', growling, knocking, and While you are swearing off, Uu't forget to swear on a lot of good ones. Resolve that the year I'M:' shall be i'tiv -h year yon have ever known that will go a long way toward mak ing it bo.

A I'aytie county farmer who owns Hit) acres of land .-.ssessed at $l,,"()0 Willi Jiersoual property makes the statement that, his laxes were $18. fit. of which $!i.00 is for state purposes. This $!U)o pays the man's share of all of the expenses of -Ihe slate gov ernment, including all of die state schools and Institutions ol every sort, lie has calculated Ihe tax Imposed up on him for Ihe support of the six district agricultural schools II. is now proposed to abolish and he finds that be is paying nearly an cents a year on his fl.r.OO worth of property, for Ihe support of insliluUons that give value at 'the present time lo farm lands in Oklahoma and nom' out a promise of greater things In (he fu ture Tor the industry of agriculture in this state. The six district agricul tural schools cost ihe owner of $1, ."() worth of property a little less than (I cents each, and yet there are demagogues iiithis slate who appeal to the ignorance and prejudice of some people lo abolish these schools as a means of economy, and for the reduction of taxes. The average tax payer would scarcely know the dif ference in his lax bill Ihis year if all of the educational Institutions were abandoned. The cheapest thing wo have iu Oklahuina Is education, and the greatest possession of the slate next lo her natural resources is the foundation of a school sys'tem suffi ciently broad to mako education here a greater factor in the advance of civ ilization than It has been in any oth er American commonweal! h. We have heard much recently of progressives and reactionaries. The reactionary in national politics is not at the present time very popular in any part of 'the United States. Ho is considered in league with powerful financial interests, seeking lo con I vol the government for personal ad vantage. The reactionary in Oklaho ma is at 'Dim present time directing his iictivitji.s lo undermining; Hie foun dation of Oklahoma's cducati'mal sys-1 t in . And of Ihe Iwo, Hie reoelien. ' aiy in Washington who seeks to play into the hands of powerful interests and I ho reactionary in Oklahoma who would deprive the people of this state of th" means of development in intel ligence, morality and material pros perity is tli- greater enemy to the people's welfare.--Knid News. o AN OPTIMISTIC VIEW. The Tut lie Telegram takes an opti mistic view of the outlook iu Crauy county, cdiioralii-.es as follows: "Precipitation for the past, (wo weeks has exceeded any time within ihe las three years. Rain and snow have kept the surface of the ground covered a greater portion of the time for the past, two weeks. For the first lime in three years, we now have a thorough moisture t the denlh of about eight feel. ! "We have suffered for three long j years lor want of a good season.

"It is conceded that our soil will hold moisture longer than any other country, and with th spring rains, and occasional summer rains lliat aie due us for (he coming yar. it nromis-1 es next Icir lo ha the beat ciup tr that we have ever had." We strongly suspect Dial Teddy would llarkis it if the nomination were banded him on a silver platter, but we don't bulieve he'll have a chance to get it that the propaganda, of way, in spite of the Chickashu Roosevelt club. . To its friends and patrons the Kx prcss extends its sincere thanks for their generous support during I lie past year and on this New Y jar's day renews lis resolution and prom ise to give them the very best in Ihe shop during (no coming year. EXPRESS PACKAGETTES. (Dy E. S.) If a man makes money on n deal It is an investment, otherwise it is a speculation. The few minutes added lo Hie day by Old Sol's early rising Is helping out wonderfully. Why Is it that, a man will wal' until Ihe snow is falling before be orders his coal? Many a man marries a woman 'o escape loneliness and then joins a club to escape the woman. We have observed that no mat' el bow lazy a woman may he, her lazi ness seldom extends to her tong js We have observed that the average couple who apply for a marriage per mit have the opinion that they ate Ihe most important people in t. world. Now, along comes a new fashioned mother who declares that the old fashioned child's prayer "Now I lay h.e (.own lo Sleep" is loo long for her children. .More elusive I ban the soap I hat has fallen In the bath tub are' the ways of the seasoned flirt. And by the way flirting is a habit that often marriage does not cura. PROSPERITY OF THE MAVAJ0S They Have Ample Pasturage and Make Mcne" by Their Silver Work. The Navajos are today by long adds the most prosperous Indians In Amer Ira Their vast reserve offers ample pastuieage for their sheep and ponies, and though their flocks are a scrub lot, yielding little more than fifty to eventy cents a heart In wool on the average, still it costs nothing to keep sheep and goats.

The Indispensable "aids" to a good fricassee, or slew, especially If it be a fowl, are Ihe following: For onn fowl, one quart boiling water, three sprays of parsley, a bay leaf, a stick or two of celery, two iillces onion, a carrot, and seasoning of salt and pep per to lasle. Given these, slowly cooked, and you have n delicious dish which may be served with the follow ing sauce if it is lo be eaten on any extra occasion. Cook together two ounces each, butler and flour, without allowing it lo brown. Add slowly a pint of the liquor, and boil ten min utes. Add the yolk of an egg beat en with a spoonful of cream and a soueP7,n of lemon .juice. When hot, pour over the chicken, and serve at once. "Dtrn'ts" for Ironing. Don't test the iron liy holding up to the face; serious burns have resulted from this practice. Don't put the irons directly on the coals. Nor, after honing, should they be left on the stove to cool; this makes them rough. Don't iron with the light behind you; the rays should strike directly on the work. Don't have iron too hot; it will scorch, or cause "blisters." Don't have it too cold or it will stick, and the edges of the linen will turn yellow. -mr im its "SUEY, SOOY, SOY."
