PREPARE jFOR THE iWINTER OF LIFeV^ The cool weather is ,coming on.....This .makes everyone feel good. When the weather gets pooler, We begin /to look for our heavy clothes land the next thing we arc going to look for our summers savings.  � '    '� Did we save enough during the summer to take care of the needs of winter? The needs of winter are greater than the needs of summer. It takes (more, clothes, more shelter, more fuel and more food than it docs in the summer. So it is in the winter of life; Have Hve prepared for our latter years? TEACHERS' EXAMINATION' The quarterly examination for County Teachers' certificate will be (held in the grade school building in Stilwell on Thursday, Friday and Saturday1, January 24, 25,  26, 1929, All teachers desiring to offer credits made in an Oklahoma Teachers' College in lieu of an examination in any subject-must have a Transcript from the college and present same on date of the examination, M. GAYLOR Dr. Frank Crane Says HOW TO PICK A WIFE The most important question in the world for a man to decide is not his attitude toward the tariff, or prohibition, or the income tax, but What manner of woman he is going to live with nil his life. Other questions may come and go, but this one goes on forever. To use a term of Bacon's, "II comes home to men's business anil bosoms." A preacher once came lo John Wesley and asked his advice as to whether lie should marry a certain "Win me?" said Mr. "Von   have   already   made you wouldn't have woman. We s lev up your in nil or consulted me." But a few w> not come amiss. I. Marry for reason, money, or anything else ills of counsel may lo\c. An> olhei fame convenience . is disastrous. 2. Marry some one approximately of your age. A marriage between May and December usually does not turn out well. 3. Marry a healthy woman. It may be all right to love a sickly wo- man, you may make all sorts of po ems to her eyebrow and cherish her as an ideal, but generally, do not marry her 4. Do not marry a bad woman to reform her, and let no woman marry an evil man to reform him Let the preachers do that. Marriage is not a reformatory institution, it is for pleasure. 5. Select a woman with a sense of humor. If possible find one who is cheerful. You can overcome almost anything but perpetual gloom You will find that you need, more (ban anything else, lo be perpetually cheered. Not that you want a Cheshire eat, perpetually grinning, but you want a reasonable amount of i beer. (i. Select a woman, with common sense. This goes farthest in the long run. Do not select a fool, even if sh'1 has a pretty face. And some funis are beautiful. Do 'iol be determined solely by passion, but use your brain a little, if an v. Of course passion is essential, bin marriage is a matter of every -da;\ life. the young men will have a very vali uahlc partner in their large and growing business. They are plannf. irig to stock a mens and ladies? ready to wear line this spring. This will fill a long felt nee.dherej.gy-. eryonc being here-tofore compelled to send lo the catalog houses or visit other towns for this line of goods.. All flu cases are on the mend and most of them out and at work again. Watts, while having many cases Of this malady during the past thirty days, has been fortunate in haying no deaths traceable lo it. The junior department of the local high school are practicing a play. "Hiram Slick of Punkin' Creek" and iViU be presented in the high school auditorium soon. A cast or characters will be given next week. A meeting of farmers from all over the county will meet at Stilwell Wednesday of next week, out of wihieh will be formed an Advisory Committer to outline a plan of crops and other things for the summer work. J. L. Russell, Monta .1. Nixon and G. V. Miirrie are on the committee from here. carry the same rate as deposits now: carry. The surplus doesn't do the bank any good nor make them a dime in revenue. It is simply carried for the benefit of the depositors -lo make their money safer. If the legislature--would'lower this tax rate you would see the surplus rise in every bank in the state. This would make the bank safer and. put them on a sounder basis. It would, in fact, eliminate a lot of bank failures. Of course the banks should be taxed but why put a tax on them that makes it unprofitable for them to keep a surplus for safety. When the bank suffers the people suffer in higher interest rates and lost deposits. Look into the matter and talk it to your representative and senator and see what can be done iboul it.

Town Talk Last week we slated that Rev, Leonard Stewart conducted the funeral service for the little Peters child. Rev. Stewart was unable to be present and Rev.

Mr. Gaylor, county superintendent, says that we have 116 teach ers in the county and no schools that have less than eight months and the most of them nine months terms. We are glad to make the .correction. EWING CHAPEL Edison Hornsby and Rex Bailey called on Allen Sidebottom Thurs- and if we do it will simply be due day evening. to ignorance.

TRIALS OF JESUS IN "KING   OF   KINGS" FINELY PICTURIZED Historical Accuracy Sole Aim of Cecil DeMille, the  Producer. WATTS Cecil B. Demille in the New Testament epic of "The King of Kings" reproduces both the Sanhedrin and the Roman trials of Jesus, with a regard lo historical accuracy that has not been manifested before in connection with a Biblical drama or picture. Here arc some interesting data concerning them: Pontius Pilate, Roman procurator nl Judea, used the Palace of Herod during his stay in the Holy City, and there held his Court of Justice |t was just inside the Joppa Gate, on the. western marge of Jerusalem. .Hall of the Sanhedrin. Caiaphas, High Priest and ruler of Jewry, held Court in the Hall of the Sanhedrin,' which was in the Temple.  A passageway from it opened into the House of Caiaphas, which adjoined one of the Temple structures. In the  courtyard  of  the   High Priest's  home  took place  Peter's thrice denial of his Lord, when that desciple feared his own arrest in consequence of the questions of the guard and the serving women. Arraigned before Dawn. The Incident or the cock crowing three times fixes the hour of the arraignment of Jestis as shortly before dawn.

Mr. Morgan, superintendent of the power lines for the Southwest power {company, of Faj'etteville. has been here several days with a crew of men, placing heavier equipment to support the cables carrying cu'r-ent to Westville. In the south part of Watts the poles are too light to support the load strung at the tops. A meeting of tomato growers and others interested in the canning industry will be held here next Saturday at one o'clock. Harry B. Hay-man, county agent, and S. G. Chamberlain of Anderson, Mo., owner of the canning plant here, will be present to talk to the people. Tom Jones is loadin(g out two cars of corn this week for which he .paid 78c. This makes twelve cars of corn shipped out of Watts from the last season's crop After assembling much material for our little story promised last week about the railroad yards here, some other business came up, re quiring out attention at the last mo ment, thus preventing preparing the story for the mail. So the article will have to wait until next week We are sorry, but we will try to get the copy ready on time then.

Both banks are in excellent condition, as shown by the reports and are looking forward to a prosperous year in 1929, according to the officers of the institutions. This is a mighty good place to mention a fact thet few people know. All banks are required to carry a surplus of 10 per cent of their capital to protect the depositors. Many banks carry-much more. The First National bank here is carrying $10,000.00 surplus with a capital of 25,000.00. Charley Hughes, president, says that he would like to carry even more if the taxes didn't make it prohibitive.

A. Woodruff, Director CORRECT-ATTEST: is a of the A COMPLETE water plant is a part of every automobile as it is a part of every mod-ern city. The purpose of this water plant is to keep the engine cooled to a temperature that will make it efficient in operation. If it were not for this, the cylinder walls would become overheated and the pistons refuse to operate. The cooling system of the new Ford is particularly interesting because it is so simple and reliable. When the radiator is full of water, the engine of the new Ford will not overheat under the hardest driving. Yet the water is so -regulated that it will not impair engine operation by running too cold in winter. The cooling surface of the Ford radiator is large, with four rows of tubes set in staggered position so that each receives the full benefit of the incoming air. The fan is of the airplane propeller type and draws air through the radiator at the rapid rate of 850 cubic feet per minute at 1000 revolutions per minute e.f the motor., The hot water around the cylinder head is drawn to the radiator to be cooled by a centrifugal water pump of new design. The entire cooling system of the new Ford is so simple^ in design and so carefully made that it requires very little attention. The radiator should be kept full, of course, and drained once each month so that sediment will not collect and retard the free passage of water. In cold weather, a reliable anti-freeze solution should be added. As owner and manager of this important water plant you should also see that the water pump and fan shaft are properly lubricated and the packing around the pump shaft kept in adjustment. Hose connections may. also need replacement after long service. For those little adjustments, it pays to call on the Ford dealer. He works under close factory supervision and he has .been specially trained and equipped to do a thorough,competent job at a fair price. Ford Motor Company SPECIAL!
