Properly made, well cooked, eaten at regular hours, and chewed slowly to avoid swallowing small pieces whole, the "hot dogs" are good for men. But, eaten between meals, haphazard and rapidly, Ihey contirhutc lo the 50.000,000 cases of American dvspepsia.

That is an interesting miracle, and there are many others'In modern science.Those born deaf and dumb, that never hear a sound, learn lo speak and understand the speech of others. With imagination's power, never having seen the earth or the sun or the sound of a friend's voice, they are able to understand beauty and friendship. Thai answers those, who ask: "Is Ihere really such a thing u3 a soul?" William Hohenzollern, once Emperor, is seventy. He looks well, but disillusioned, wears a full beard, mustaches no longer waxed or turned up at the point. He will celebrate by publishing a book called "My Ancestors." It could be interesting, going back to the early money-lending family of East Prussia that got its name from high interest rates. But it's hard to write impariially "-about your own people.

The Standard-Sentinel Officelnll920 NUMBER 1 William decided that some tilings were wroi)g in (the Hohenzollern family, and blames its troubles, passion, sudden rages, bad temper, etc., on a woman. Maria Pawlowa, Russian by blood, Hohenzollern by accident of marriage. That reminds you of Adam blaming live. William says that Maria, was the "vilest villian of my fam'.ly." His predecessor, Frederick the Great, would-know better. Maria Pawlowa, because she was wild, violent, ungovernable, may have given Prussia* ruling family its genius. Use of electric machinery in the home, 'sweepers, washing machines, mangles,, fans, irons, exercising apparatus, has increased enormously the past year. L. J.

Patton, a Mississippian by birth, who came here from Darda-neilc, Arkansas, in 1896. Mr. Patton established the first paper in Stilwcll in 1898 and called it the! Slilwell Standard. In 1904 1). B. Collums established the Slilwell Sentinel here, and in 1911) the two papers were consolidated into the Standard-Sentinel. .1. X. Campbell was publisher of the Sentinel for a while, but Patton and Collums were owners of the Standard-pt'nt'inel Iduriug ,the first years of its consolidation. About 1916 Patton owned the entire plSfct himself and Iale in 1916 a fire destroyed the office. A few issues were printed in Westville until new equipment was bought for the Standard-Sentinel. In 1920 Cassius Haywood bought the paper from Patton and operated, it until April 1, 1928, when he sold it to the East Oklahoma Publishing company, who changed the name to the Adair County Democrat. In the early years of 1900 Clarence Wagoner (J. S. Hillman?) established the Adair County Republican which was absorbed by the Standard-Sentinel in 1915. In March 1915, .1. A.." Alchley established; the Adair County Gleaner. Early in 1917, soon after the fire, John Patlon bought and installed a four-page 6-column cylinder newspaper press. In 1922 Haywood bought and installed a model 8 Linotype. Since the paper has been in charge of the East Oklahoma Publishing company numerous items fiave been added to the equipment of the shop making it up-to-date in every respect. The Democrat is the only office in the county that has a four-page newspaper press and a typesetting machine. The present Editor, Olin Perkins, took charge o{ the Democrat in May, 1928, and has been operating it since for the East Oklahoma Publishing company. Arthur Mitchell who worked for Haywood two years started with the paper again in April, 1928. The policy of the Democrat under the new management is lo boost and work for everything that is for the upbuilding and betterment of the town and county. -:--.- A lot of things lhal "might work in Russia but not. iu Uncle.
