"The idea," he scoffed.

OIL SITUATION
There are a prood many things
which develope in the oil game
in the Holbrook field, which ac
cording to Newspaper ethics
cannot be detailed to the read
ingr public, because tne news
paper man is on his honor not'to
give out tne intormacion until
given permission to release same
That Í3 why you do not always
get oil news of a startling nature
Yet there are fine things de
velopmg that we would like to
tell you, and will tell you but
not now.
In Other Words, Scif-Control.
True enjoyiiirnt lies Iwr.y.s nlong
that roya! middle g-ound the use of
nil functions r.ml powers, but with the
Imperial band of mastery upon all.
Otherwise, there are always heavy
penalties to pay. Ralph Waldo Trine.

Blind Man's Direction Flr.dzr.
To enable him to p-t about without
the aid of a rane a Seattle blind man
has invented a direetioa indicator, eoa
sisting of a compás.; an: buzzers worn
on a belt, the buzzers sounding when
he deviated from a set course.
29. 1921
Petrificado, Jr.
It's poor consolation to
the Holbrook man who has
bsen stung by a bee to learn
that stinging anyone kills
the bee.
A sport headline reads:
"Dempsey Did Not Forget
His Mother." No, an-1 we
can't forget that he didn't
go to France.
There's one thing we ought
to be thankful for that we'
re apt to overlook, and that
is that Russia isn't located
where Canada is.
Calling the weather harsh
names helps some, but it's
still necessary for fat men
around Holbrook to keep on
mopping.
At that, it's more profit
able to arcrue with a fool
than with a policeman.
More than one man's
bravery is largely due to the
fact that he happens to
know the other man is a
coward.
The Holbrook man who
doesn't own a garden has at
least one thing to be thank
ful for he doesn't have to
cuss cutworms.
According to a govern
ment report there's an in
creased number of swine in
the U. S. over last year.
They're probably counting in
the rent hogs, too.
Still another thing that
leads us to belive the world
is getting better is to see
every now and then a fat
girl acting jolly instead of
trying to be stylish.
Some Holbrook men can't
make up their minds wheth
er their wives can't under
stand .them, or whether
they know them too well.
A Detroit man returned
home from marching in a
parade and shot himself.
Someone must have told
him how he looked.
Sleeping sickness may be
contagious, but it doesn't
J seem to have gotten around
yet to tne roosters 01 tins
neighborhood.
If you think the average
Holbrook housewife isn't
notionate, try helping her
with the house-cleaning and
see how many different ways
she wants the dining room
curtains hung.
Still another advantage of
being a ' bachelor is your
razor is used for shaving
only, and not for trimming
corns.
More than one honeymoon
has gone out the back door
ana lumped m the rain
barrel when she said: "I'll
be back in a moment," and
then didn't return for an
hour.
We've many kind of com
binations in Holbrook but so
far we haven't struck any
thing that outclasses corn
and beans.
Never judge the merit of
a joke by the laugh of a wo
man who has a pretty dim
ple or pretty teeth.
