Some rulers rule with a high hand
and wear themselves out in time.
Others arc so blame full of schemes
that the Devil wouldn't trust them

It makes a diifcrcncc as to who
wants favors. Some will ask them
for their friends. Others arc

that Johnny wanted to eat.

.The selfishness of humanity is
clearly manifested where" dollar
squeezers try to rope in IFncle

' tiie battles ostensibly and in reality
arc-employees of the element they
assist. Broad minded -nicn who
imagine the'Post Check Currency
System will be'favored because it

the Post Check and by the assist
ance of Uncle Sam's clerks' .
s The Kural free delivery system
upon which Uncle Sam has spent
thousands of dollars has been a
success in some ways. Thousands
of people have been benefitted and
and" there arc abuses which are
cropping out here and there which
in -measure counteract the good
results. " Tliere a'retpeople in this
world who try to imagine that the
world jwags for them alone and
that everything is being done for

Houses now pushing the Post

use the Kural Delivery mail routes
to further their interests , act as
their agents and conduct their
stores with the assistance af Uncle
Sam's clerks. . .

The DEMOCRAT comes out a day
late this week caused by the roller
carriage of our press breaking
while printing the first side of the
paper. We promptly sent Law
rence , the younger" manager in
chief over for blacksmith Breuk-
lander who came in and began
cleaning up the'wreck. . The press
is again in good running order as
you can see by. this paper.
The editor was surprised this
week by receiving a-box by ex
press from Lees Summit , Mo. ,
which upon opening we found to
be a box of the popular Missouri
smoking tobacco which was.raised
on the farm of our uncle , Frank
M. , Alley who lives two miles north
* * / r *
of Cpckrelt , Mo. , Last July while
visiting him we saw the tobacco
growing and walked up and down
the rows of the "long gre'on" which
now through the generosity of that
good old -Missouri farmer we
are permitted to again puff .the
smoke of the natural leaf which
is more appreciated than a clear
Hayana. _ "Mayhelive long and
prosper" is the wish of his nephew , ,
who will never forget' the pleasant
hours passed in his company. We
hope to again visit with the whole
souled , ' good people of Jackson
countyMo. . , and spend more time
with them on another visit.
The DEMOCRAT is not in favor of
the Town Board . allowing a . citizen
_ _ - , <
to use" its name for the purpose of
securing from the -government , a.
tract of land that was' ordered sold
to the city for a park in a special-
bill in congress which we.as citi
zens and residents of this cifcy re
quested in a petition to that honorable -
orable body. We think that the
land which is mentioned in that
bill , amounting to 720 acres , is
worth more money to our city
than the money required to pay for
it , which by congress was fixed at
§ 2-00 per acre. Our town can pay
the money required for the pur
chase of the land and it will be a
good investment. If the town
should go before congress , however -
or with a second petition to co
gress to cede the land to the citj
for the bencfit'of a sta'te norma
school which is to be located here
by our legislature , or for the use
of-our city , I believe that our town
can have and own the whole tracj
of 720 acres as , provided in the bil
without the payment of a dollar.

An Indian Territory editor has
this to say of his work :
' "Editing a newspaper is a pleasant
ant- business if you can stand it.
"If it contains many advertise
ments a subscriber complains that
they take up too much space. If
there is a lack of advertising it is
unpopular and the people won't
"If we attend church regular
they say we go for effect. If we
stay away from churcli. they , say
we are monstrously heathenish.
" "If we accept an invitation to a
wedding they say that we were
only invited to write it up.
"If we go to the opera house
they say we go on free tickets. If
we arc seen upon the streets too
often they say we neglect our
business. If we- avoid going on
the street they say we don't hustle
around after the news.
"If we publish a man who has
brought disgrace upon his family ,
the friends of the family never
forgive us. If we , out of goodness
of heart , decline to say anything
on the subject , the man's enemies
are disappointed and we are brand
ed as white livered cowards. "

weeks viewing old home scenes
and mingling -with relatives andf
old friends. Mrs.Steele visited 'a

their visit immensely , they are glad *
to get back to Cherry county.
One of the changes made by the-
F. E. & M.'V. , is thex discharge of
all stock solicitors. This relieves
"Stock Agents B. F. Carter and
Mr. Leaver. The company proposes -
poses to take care of what business ,
that comes to it unsolicited , and al-'i
low its heretofore solicitors to hunt ,
another ( job , and this seems to us * , a.
sensible move in the' interestsof ,
economy. Other campanies have !
adopted'the same plan and it isfce-i
