commercial center not only of Oklahoma but of the entire Southwest as well Okla f homa has the greatest variety of O occupations of any State most in 1 the union therefore her doors tiare thrown open to people of all trades and occupations which is causing a great tide of immigra tion to come to this new State Possibiliteas are more rapid ly than that of any other state and in particular along the lines of agriculture for it possesses soil that will grow any crop aid i ed by wonderful climatic condi I tions iv Oklahoma bids fair to outstrip both her sister agriculturial and mineral states within the very tYo think that during the current year of 1910 the value of Oklawf uarjtn small percentage of her entire tillable land is under cultivatio- and that the per capita value of this years

land Of this total area less than onethird is under cultivation In the year 1908 10182614 acres were being cultivated inr 1909 the cultivated acreage was orrr an increase of seven per cent and it may be readily seen that t at this rate the entire availab i s area will soon be under cultiva tion When we take into consid 1 eration that the rental value to the land owner this year is ove ten per cent on his investment or a greater rate than anyx Jp state which is evidence of the i splendidvalue of Oklahoma lands ttJ y and one very noticeable feature fi of this country is its great abili fLlHy to

big grocer in Los Angeles has decided to reduce the cost of living 20 per cent without waiting for the Government to revise the tariff or bust t n e trustThis is how he does it Sells only on a cash basis thus saving the annual expenses of 30000 for collecting and bookkeeping Customers who want to maintain a running account deposit cash and are credited 3 per cent interest on the unused balances He abolishes all free deliveries charging 5 per cent on all goods sent to the customers houseAs he formerly figured 20 per cent as costof delivery the customer is ahead to the tune of 15 per centHe slated 20 per cent from the price of all goods on the day that this system was put into prac ticeIA saving of onefifth of the grocery bills of the nation would add very materially to the com fort of life in millions of homes If the plan works in Los Ange les why isnt it working any where else- Anyhow you dont have to wait for Congress to act before you can try this way of reducing the cost of living Cincinnati Postq t Donts For Churchmen Dont try to hide the divine by definitions Dont attempt to cleanse the world by making it look gloomy Dont fail to observe that twisted truth usually

handle a few acres well fertilized andIsucceed than it is to taken acreage and endeavor to cultivateI the entire acreage as much fertilizer per hundred acres as would be suitable for ten acres On rich soil most any sjrt of a crop can be grown successfully There is little danger of overfertilization and it is so mucheasier to cultivate and fltdrvest the crop from a few acres than from a large acreage about half tilled If you find it difficult to make your large acre age pay why not sell off about half of your farm put the pro ceeds into fertilizers and make the remainder rich You can then grow more and better crops on the remainder with less ex pense and worry than you could ever hope to do on the larger acreageSonthern Fruit Grow er Cupid and the College Girl It has long been generally bei lieved that the percentage of college girls who marry is small Twenty five years ago it used t be said that not a quarter of the girl graduates ever wedded The implication plainly was that threequarters of them were not worth marrying They were pic tured as wanting to discuss literature at breakfast science at lunch and philosophy at dinner Gradually as this unfair view passed the story went that only- a third of the girls got married Now the common report is that half of them marry No statis tics are available on this subject but the impression grows that college girls are in more favor in matrimonial circles It is un doubtedly true that higher edu cation has not made the average a college girl more sought by mar allwifeagainst the col1e eglrlIS pass ingAs she is better
