Ntf M'fcfeK' ifti 3 NEW COUNTY OFFICERS WILL BE INSTALLED GASOLINE TAX IS ' HIKED TO FOUR CENTS Treasurer, Superintehdent and Commissioner Will Take Office July 1st. One Thirty-five for women, forty-five to men, would be the best fifty-five for men, would be the best from the eugenist's point of view. So at least said the Greek philosopher. Modern commonsense says the best time to marry is when you fall in love, that when you marry young you keep out of michief, if you stay away from Reno and Paris. Governor W. J. Holloway signed a bill last Saturday morning at,ten;raisr ing the gasoline tax from three to four cents a gallon. >� ;/ It is estimated by those who- fostered measure that this increase in tax will add $1,500,000 annually to the state road fund.  ' >� ---*-^-' Why should men marry after forty and women after thirty? Because children get intellect and health from the mother. They should be born when the mother's .health and intellect have reached the highest development and before either begin to fail. Children inherit intelligence chiefly from their fathers, when the fathers HAVE it. In men that develop fully, about .1 in 1,000, full intelligence is not developed until forty-five or fifty. ' Dean Hutchins, soon to be head of the University of Chicago, and youngest president of any big college in the United States, says the teacher's real work is -teaching_�tudenti;.to thinjk,. "A university is not made to reform or amuse young men, but to teach them to think, .to think straight if possible, but to think always for themselves. No educator ever said anything more important or expressed more accurately th'q purpose, of education. , But how can you tea'ch men TO THINK? That is the question. You must take them young.- Professor Hutchins says "It is sad but true that at eighteen or nineteen it is too late to take a boy and make a man of him and interest him in his studies. He is solidified too often in more ways than one." The oath of office will be administer* ed to Ed Woods as county treasurer, A. C. Barnett as. commissioner, and Miss Amy B.. Walls as-, county superintendent on Monday, July 1. These- officers were elected in November but do-not take office until juiy i- v ' ;. . Miss Walls is, the present treasurer and is not new in courthouse circles. She was a former teacher in the county and should be familiar with the educational problems of our teachers. Mr. Woods has formerly served as county treasurer and has been a deputy during the past administration. He is familiar with the office and in position to render prompt and efficient service to the patrons of the office. "The only thing I have to say is that I promise the people the same thing I did before the election-that I will give the very best service i know how," Mr; Woods said in commenting on his inauguration as the new treasurer of Adair county. Mr. .Barnett is a new man in politics in the county but the people of his district are expecting a lot from him. He is interested in better farming conditions, better roads, and general and immediate progress for trie town and county-.--.,_____..v. - ...... - Mr. Barnett has a pleasant disposition, is easy to meet and will be ready to listen to the troubles that the people of his district and the county may have. He is an alert business man and should be a great factor in guiding the county {o a sound financial condition.

That might have been expected. The criminals tested could not even answer quickly questions as to what they would do in an emergency while committing a crime.

OKLAHOMA CITY, June "26.- Yesterday saw the test in the house for the 150,000,000 road bond.issue. The house Wednesday afternoon advanced the bill to general order on the calendar, thus saving it from consideration by the roads and highway com mittee and throwing it open for immediate consideration by the house in committee of the whole. - It will be subjected to a vigorous fight in the- house from republicans and a group, of democrats. When it passes.the-house it must face a united republican opposition in the senate. Objett of Opposition. Neither house nor senate group is fighting the principle of the road-bond issue to complete the state highway system. They oppose the proposals to make -the present highway commission a . constitutional-, body for six -years. The' governor sent a vigorous message to both houses today, urging the support'of the resolution as drawn and that will be effective in swinging a number of votes to the Support of the resolution as it stands. Observers believe most, attempts to amend, the measure on the floor; of the house will fail. It is doubtful if the house \vill complete consideration of the measure before Friday afternoon at the earliest. Then it will go to the senate where it will have "to go through the mill again. But the governor has better control in the senate than in the house. ' Plans have becg- completed for the entertainment of - a large number of guests at the meeting of Farm Women's clubs to be held at the First Baptist, chutch here today, according to Miss Ruth H.

It will be! provided by each-woman attending ittdio is expected to bring one item of food and enough bread or sandwiches for one-person. The afternoon will be devoted. to demonstrations, entertainment and lectures, according to Miss Smith. It is esepcially urged that all women in Stilwell be present for as much of the meeting as possible. It is a courtesy that should be shown the visiting ladies and the program will be worthwhile. Word has been received here from Rev. Chas. H. Cole, who is visiting in Brownswood, Tex., stating that he will be unable to be here Sunday and a. student from John Brown's college at Siloam will fill the pulpit at the M. E. church.

Goodall Writes to Pheonix # & % * !;= :.s s& i\t ;): i\t t'$ sji # � :Js i\i :?  , Opposes the $150,000,000 Bond Issue STILWELL ten Years Ago This Week Taken from the Files of the STANDARD-SENTINEL present coalition seems bound to a bond issue of grand statewide John A. Goodall, former state senator and local attorney here, has expressed his views on the proposed state road bond issue in a letter to the Muskogee, Daily . Phoenix. The letter, appeared in the issue of Monday and reads as follows:... ' . . � Editor, the Phoenix:. Inasmuch as the state administration inflict on the state $150,000,000 forY-a-system of cement roads: and since this administration shows--no sign of being interested in a state owed ce-^roent'yrtaWfty'v-.vhTc'n'we'could be freed from this monopoly, it is time that citizens opposed to such issue should take steps to organize to combat the propaganda that will be spread before the people for consumption at so much per line or page. ,  I see that'Washington, Lincoln and . Jefferson are left out of our constitution, but Wentz, Hutson and Boswell are to get their names in the amendment if plans arc carried out. If the, proponents of the issue must have their test, I suggest that the peo^ pie can ease the'fall to some extent by taking into their own hands through the initiative to be voted 'at the same time as the pavement amendment, and enact an amendment to^raise money through the gross production tax; this to be adjusted by a decrease on production from wells of ..small capacity and by a radical increase on flush production. This could readily be worked out, say by putting a minimum tax of. one-j tenth of. one per cent on the small wells and by graduating the scale upward until the gusher should pay, lqt us say, six per cent. That would tend to keep the flush production down and would i enable the small well to continue in | Starr business. Mr..-Went?, who is irt the oil business, could immensely increase his prestige by advocating this increase'as well asby urging a state owned cement or asphalt plant or plants. i want to be a private in this fight, but would like to have siiggestions from those  interested so , that a con-, ference may be called, soon to work out details.

Boost the Chamber of Commerce LARGE TULSA BANKS MERGE Merging of Two Institutions Gives A Combined Resource of Over � Forty-Five Million. Rev. Polk Crozier, a Presbyterian minister, aged 78 years, well known by many of our people, died at his home near Dutch, Mills last Saturday. Bide.'Dannenberg'arrived home Saturday from service in the army. Joe Starr, son of Mr. and Mrs. S.- J. arrived home Wednesday from war service. Hughie Adair, Cephas Allen, Ameri-cus Patterson and Jim Heavens are among the war heroes welcomed home in the past week; They heavy fighting.  Hubert Carson is home from war service.  ...... Monday morning of. this week the Greater First National Bank of Tulsa opened its doors with a capital qf one miliion dollars and resources of forty-five million dollars. ..'. � ' ..This new institution, is the result of merging the Tulsa National bank with the First National Bank and Trust Co. The new institution has twenty thousand depositors, with hundreds of thousands of checks^ going out and de-posi'"-; coming in.daily, weekly monthly and yearly-yet every morning as the bank opens there .s .aid t.pbw the desks of the o'.ficers an accurate condition of he oank the day before. . .In the very nature .of things,--there can be only -so'many officers of a bank, yet .there; are hundred, of men and wo-, men employed in institutions of the niHgnivude of the First National bank .mid 'Trust company who are of the highest type of the community in character^, ability and trustworthiness, who occupy key positions. .

Smith, the county home demonstration agent for Adair and Cherokee counties. : , The farm wom_n usually falls heir to the responsibility of caring for the chickens and making the surplus cfream into butter. As a result she has this means of adding to the family income. This fund usually goes to buy the groceries that are not produced ' ort the farm. If- this money were turned into a fflnd for honie 'improvement the general expenses would be met some way and the home would be made more convenient and cheerful. Several ways of spending this fund are/suggested by Miss Smith. If wood is used as fuel, a new wood box might be made with little expense. It should be large enough that it does not heed to be filled very often and should be tightly constructed so that dust will not sift through. To make it more attractive it may be painted some naturr al shade hat will harmonize with the woodwork and floor or linoleum in the kitchen. j If the ironing board is one of the old fashioned broad rieavy boards, especially suitable for flat work or made in the days when garments were voluminous, it may be replaced with, a moderate sized one. The left end should be sloped gradually for about two feet so that garments may be slipf ped over it more easily. Pad the board well and then make some removable covers which may easily be taken off when soiled. One successful type is made by cutting the cover five- or six incher larger all around than the board; hem it all around, and then run a tape in and draw it up when on the board.' The ease of using this type of cover is an important point in its favor, Miss Smith points out. If there is a convenient place in the wall where a cabinet may be- built for the-ironing board it will prove most valuable as a time and energy saver. The wall space should be chosen with care, convenient to the stove if electricity is not available, yet not in a position that the (Continued on last page) A number of local business mett'W.hq are interested in organizing a Champ of Commerce for Stilwell met at it Commercial hotel last Monday n|g and after supper was ^served they; * cussed the possibilities of such, ank ganization. . - ..
