The good of the country demands that we speak oftener than we have been doing heretofore, and it has not been possible for us to speak every day in the week through the columns of a newspaper that has been published only one day in the week. We have therefore decided "to multiply our brain-product by six and give the country what it so sorely covets and what it so badly needs. The rank and file of our reading constituency has never been able to appreciate the limitations imposed on us by the circumscriptions of a weekly newspaper. We have mastered the intricacies of world problems and clothed them in the most gorgeous prose, only to find when going to press that the problem was already settled and the entire matter was ancient history. We have exhausted the stock of hymeneal adjectives in describing a popular marriage only to have the happy couple sue for divorce before we could get our paper to the public. We have complimented our courts on the conviction of a criminal and have been forced to cut the compliment from our forms because habeas corpus proceedings had enabled the criminal aforesaid to write a history of his life, marry an oil magnate’s daughter, and enter state politics before we could get our article into print. We have exhausted our cerebral processes in elucidating the prairie dog statute, only to learn when going to press that Campbell Russell had invoked the referendum and knocked that statute higher than Charley Chauncey can fly. In fine we have set our alarm clock at 2:26 in the morning and rushed half clad to the Katy depot only to find that the schedule had been changed three davs before and another train would not be due for a week. Therefore we have arranged for quicker service and for perpetual motion. We have taken our place in the vanguard and are already seven parasangs ahead of the dust. We have associated ourself with one who has in a dozen weeks made The Ada Evening News the sensation of Oklahoma journalism and who in a dozen months will give the people of Pontotoc county a newspaper equal to any in the great southwest. Very sincerely, LUTHER HARRISON. ;
