Benson The great moral? senator from Texas, Joe Bailey, seems to be having trouble these days. When any man gets such a bad case of the “big head” that he imagines his place cannot be filled by some one else he deserves a rest. For Bailey to have a rest from his senatorial labors would benefit both the Senator and the State of Texas. —Business-Farmer. How many college presidents , and professors, how many public school teachers, how many Sun- J day school teachers, how many ministers of the gospel, how 1 many charitable workers, how , many of the great and good in all walks of life are lined up for the ‘ open saloon? On the other hand, how many from the slums, how . many from the redlight district, how many barroom loafers, how . many thugs, how many ward heelers, how many grafters favor local option? Readers, with which crowd do You stand? --Gazette. The editor of acounty paper re ceived the following query: ”Can you tell me what the weather will be next month?” in reply he wrote: ‘‘lt’s my belief that the weather next month will be very much like your subscription.” The inquirer wondered for an hour what the editor was driving at; when he happened to think of the word “unsettled. ” He went in the next day and squared his account. And the weather was fine. ______ Some of the Arizona politicians are still fussing over the initiative referendum and recall. There is no use in them getting heated up over something they cannot help. Mordern conditions demand these provisions of government by the people and for the people and they are coming just as sure as the sun shines in Arizona. —Busi ness-Farmer. If there were more boosters in Arizona who would deliver the goods as does Col. H. L. w Pickett of Tombstone, the terri tory would have been a state several moons since and all of the eastern homeseekers would be headed this way and the new commonwealth would have a population of over a million within a short time Col. Pickett’s way l of boosting is worthy of copying. A Prospector. Chas. A. Densmore, editor and publisher of the El Paso Mining Journal, arrived in Duncan Wednesday afternoon and left Thursday for Twin Peaks camp and other camps in that district where he will remain long enough to gather all the first-hand knowledge available and present it properly for publication in the Journal. There will be some very interesting reading and some exceedingly valuable mineral knowledge gained from Mr. Densmore’s personal inspection and written description of this mining district. ! Watch for the El Paso Mining Journal and see what we really have here as seen by a reputable disinterested Mining-Journal man Many a man who is calling loudly for justice would be in the county jail if he got it. Women may possibley not know enough to vote, though we don’t admit it; but she certainly knows enough not to sell that vote to the first briber who may happen along. Men who owe all they have and all they are to an industrious, economical wife too oftdn leave her out when they boast of their success, as most successful men are prone to do. When 1,100 democrats of great prominence, and some of them of national prominence, foregather to do honor to another democrat, he may not be presumed to have gone into the discard. That Col. Bryav has not been so dis posed of was made plainer by the fact that at that dinner he was proclaimed to be still the leader of the democracy. Though all of the guests, of course, would not have concurred in that asser tion it was not the time or place for disputation, and the proclama tion stands as the expression of the representative of the national democracy. It is not at all likely that Mr.. Bryan will be a candidate for pre : sident in 1912, or that he would desire to be a candidate, but it is very plain that he desires to be the maker of a candidate, and it is well known that he does not con sider Governor Harmon good material. As a leader of the democracy, the ascendancy of Mr. Bryan would be a greater obstacle in the way of the distinguished Ohio an to the nomination than if Mr. Bryan were an active candidate himself. As a leader without presidential aspirations he would command a more formidable fol lowing. Many democrats who would not accept his candidacy for the fourth time, would follow him into the camp of an aspirant hostile to Harmon. It is shown that the gentlemen who assembled at Lincoln have haled the guest of honor as still their leader. WEST LEVISTÝE OHER OGEH That mothers-in-law are re sponsible for 80 percent, oi the matrimonial troubles of young married folks, which culminate frequently in the arrests of husbands on charges of failure to provide, or of desertion, is an opinion expressed by an Arizona judge. He has heard hundreds of such cases and his conclusions are based on observations he has made during the time he has tried to temper justice with consider ation and call back vanished mat rimonial bliss. The judge was sitting at his desk when word was brought to him that a young «ouple had failed te live up to his expect ation, the boy had gone back to his mother and the girl to her parents, and a pretty bungalow, built and furnished on the install ment plan, was in a real estate agent’s hands for debt. Com menting on the failure of the young couple to live together the judge said: In the majority of cases the persons are young, some j of them mere children. I do not think that the fact of their youth j is the seat of the trouble. The j difficulty arises from the factj that the mother-in-law won’t stop babying the pair, and in many cases insists on directing their family affairs. In almost every case the mother in-law looms large and is back of the whole thing. They simply won’t keep their hands out of their children’s affairs. The husband is angered. He says harsh things. The girl retaliates with a few warm remarks and there is a quarrel. It is a trivial affair—a boy and girl scrap—but the girl goes home to mother and mother sympathizes with her dear. A week later I see them before me. The girl wife, the boy husband, the indignant mother in-law. As the young man stands before me he coyly eyes his girl wife and she coyly eyes him. They would like to square the whole business, but mother 's there with a bitter gleam in her eye and the prosecution must go on. The evidence in the case almost makes me laugh if it were not such a serious matter, involving the lives of this young couple. From mere nonsense a criminal prosecution has developed. I gen erally suspend the charge and give them another chance if they accept my advice they keep away from their parents and live by themselves. If they don’t the husband is sent back again on a new complaint, and he goes over the road; the girl back to her parents, the sweetest part of her life spoiled. If I had my way the mother-in law who causes this sort of thing would be made to answer for it. I do not mean to insinuate that all mothers-in-law are that way. I am a married man myself and am not speaking from any per sonal experience by any means but from what I see in the court. Some men are born good, but more are made good by their wives.

During the progress of the morning bath of a few-months-old infant, a little neighbor girl came into the roon, carring a doll she had received for a Christmas present, and stood watching the operation for some time. The little girl’s doll was much the worse for hard usage, being minus an arm and a leg. Finally she said to the mother of the child: How long have you had your baby?” The child was informed and looking I from her doll to the baby she said ”My you have kept it nice”. ©© The Bank of Duncan S LiJ Is prepared to transact all branches of njJLJ domestic banking.
