FAIN Law ton Oklahoma THE OLD AND THE Nr.W In a few days we will say goodby, adieu, farewell to the historical year 1912 forever. As it slips away from us, with all of its memories, it awakens a cord of pain in our hearts as we think it will be everlastingly gone, with its sunshine and its shadows, its joys and its pains: its many op portunities employed or disre garded. We cannot bring it back and many of us wouldn't if we could. However, most, if not all of us tenderly cling to the old year with our memories and affections while we hopefully and prayer fully reach out for the new with all of its uncertainties. To many of us the old year has been kind, in many degrees; while with many more the dark side has been turned a shadow has fallen and the mantle of sor row has wrapped its somber folds about them. In looking back over the past year, mo3t of us see where we made mistakes, did many things that we should not have done, and left undone many things we should have done mostly, however, the fault of the head and not of the heart. We have learned many things during the past year, no matter how old we may be; and, if we are wise, we will profit by our experience. In many things it is well to judge the future by the past; while in some other ways it is best to let the dead past bury them and press onward and upward al ways sure that we are climbing and not falling. Let us, one and all, dear read ers, adopt a motto that is well calculated to make us better men, women and children, and then resolve to live by it. So far as the humble editor of the Champion is concerned, we can not think of a better one than that proclaimed by the angels at the birth of Christ: "Peace on earth, goodwill towards men." Our readers will observe that we arc, begining with this issue, publishing the Price List of the Blacksmiths, Horseshoers and Wagon Makers' of Oklahoma, as taken from their Annual Year Book of 1912. We do this most ly for the benefit of our farmers, that they may know beforehand about what such work will cost them, and also whether or not their mechanics are doing the rijfht thins by them.
