THE HISHBBA DEHOOBIT I Subscription: SI a Year. H L. RAY Editor and Publisher Sweet Girl Graduates Observe the noble girl who lias completed her college j education. See her. with her dimpled | chin resting in the hollow of i her white palm, gazing out 'into the future with thought ful eyes. What problems : may she now be solving? What mighty movements forthe uplifting of the race may she be planning? Back of her are the years of study and application. The great minds of the centuries nave given her of their best. All that science and philosophy can cull from the universe or mind and matter is hers. And now she is ready for the future. There is a hope ful gleam, a confident light in her eyes, i She speaks: “Some of those back num bers at home will sit up and take notice when I get off the ! train in this new pannier skirt suit of mine!’’ Similar To 23d Psalm 1.

She restoreth my pock letbook after she hath spent all its contents on hobble ! skirts and theater tickets, j and she leadeth me up the main aisle at church for her new hat’s sake. 4. Yea! Though I walk more than half the night through darkness with cry ing baby, 1 will not rest; for she is behind me. Her broom stick and her hat pin, they do everything but comfort me. 5. She prepareth a cold snack for me, then maketh a bee line for an aid society. She aunointethmy head with the rolling pin occasionally. My arms runneth over with bundles before she is half done her shopping. G. Surely her dressmakers and milliner’s bills shall fol low me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of my wife forever.— Exchange.

She waited for no ceremony but wildly asked; “Is this the printin’ office?” “Yes, madam.” “I want to stop my paper.” “All right madam.” “Stop it right away, too.” “It’s stopped,” we replied, making a blue line through her husband’s name ou the subscription list. “Mabbe that will learn you some boss sense and how to do the square thing next time, and not to slight peo ple just because they are poor. If some rich, stuck up folks happen to hare a bald-, headed brat born to ’em you’re in an awful hurry to put it in the paper and make it out an angel, but when poor people have a baby you can’t say a word about it even if it is the purtiest child horned. That’s what I’m stoppin’ the paper fur. This ought to be a lesson to every paper in Oklahoma. And she went out of the offi ce as mad as a wet hen. L, Yerger, secretary of the Penitentiary trustees has been placed under a $25000 bond for embezzling state funds to the amount of sls OUO, and this may be greatly increased when a full investi gation has been made.
