It wasnt the usual Easter rjn which played havoc"1: with Easter' frocks in Wagoner this year, but an old-fashioned duster which forced more attention to keeping clothes oh than showing them off. The rain came a day late but was truly appreciated by everyone. ' ' Wagoner looks nicer today than at anytime I can remember? is a comment frequently heard these days. . And it does look nice, with new homes, new business houses, .new home improvements. frit is a good sign when people feel proud of where they live, want to beautify their homes and improve their communities. And , in the final analysis it is merely a matter of good tradition and wise education. 1 ' Make yourself and others proud of Wagoner by doing your part to make it a city of which you, yourself, can be truly proud. It was suggested, by Mrs. J. H. Plunkett this week that the one thing most needed to complete the Wagoner County Courthouse is an American flag atop the building. A splendid suggestion and one well meriting consideration by the board of county commissioners. fr fr Never was it more necessary that the American flag be displayed than today, the stars and stripes proudly flung to the four winds of heaven, constantly reminding our people of the many liberties we enjoy, liberties which today are forcibly denied to others throughout the world. fr fr For tliat Hag njust constantly remind us. of the freedoms we now enjoy which men since the dawn of time have , aspired to achieve freedom . of thought, of opinion, - of speech, the freedom to Worship after our own choice freedoms slowly won for all -of us down through the ages by the valor and sacrifices of a few. - For only in the constant reminder of these freedoms are we taught to fully appreciate them and be resolved to defend them at all cost in order that, ..they may be preserved and enjoyed by ourselves, our children and our childrens children. , For it is more than a flag, it is the symbol of a nation built upon the rock of justice and human liberties, a nation which must endure if men are to live both free and equal. fr Risking the accusation of -harping on a subject, but while thinking about the courthouse and the proposed flag for it, we still insist that the building should be floodlighted at night. Mrs. R. M. Grimes remarked this week that If the "county commissioners ever saw the floodlighted . courthouse at Fort Smith, Ark., there would be no need to talk about it further it would be floodlighted. ' Ben Cobb in tearing down an old house recently found within the walls a fragment of a copy of the Wagoner Sayings published in November, 1896; Only a part of the editorial page could be read, the remainder of the paper being so. covered with grime , and weather-worn as, to. be indiscernible. B. Lindsey was listed as publisher of the newspaper.' fr fr The lead editorial for that week reported the purchase of The Fraternal Record, made the official organ of the I.O.OF. for the Indian Territory at the last session of the Grand Lodge, by C. W. Hatfield, of Wagoner, from J. Frank Ross, of Hartshome. " fr Mr. Hatfield has had some experience In journalism and is well informed on the principles of Odd Fellowship as the fraternity throughout the territory is aware, the editor commented. He will publish a paper that will be worthy of appreciation and hearty support by the order. 1 V f Spread across the bottom of the editorial page under a four-column headline, "Address to Rejected Claim ants, was an announcement by W. J. Watts, of Wagoner, that our asso elation now embraces the Five Civi lized Nations and the Catawabas and iSnow known as The Citizenship Association of the Indian Territbry. . fr In announcing the formation of the new association, Watts, as president, set out that thousands of claimants (to citizenship in the Cherokee Nation) have been rejected (by the Dawes Commission) without examination or investigation of a single claim. , . fr The new association, it was set out, is a strong organization and may prove irresistable. We now have our attorney Col. W. B.' Watts, paid by the association, who will fight your case, through every court In the Territory and through the court of last resort. Besides we have Gen. Garland at Washington', whose legal mind is an acknowledged power at the capital. Each case sustained by good proof was to be appealed, it was announced. Contend inch by inch for what we deem just and legal, and we believe the day is not far distant when every claimant who has a just claim will be by the proper authorities restored to all the rights, privileges and immunities of citizenship of the Indian Territory. - L- The statement and address of President Watts was attested by E. B. Cody as secretary. fr fr - t Another side of the controversy appeared in an adjoining column of the newspaper in a letter to the editor headlined The' Watts Gang. The name of the writer and most of the article is lost, the paper being, badly tom at this place. From what can be read, however, it can be seen that not everyone, in the Territory agreed with the contention for citizenship in-the Cher-, okee Nation by members of the .Citizenship Association of the Indian Territory. . 'fr Judge Chas. G. Watts, when told of the finding of the old newspaper by Cobb, reported that he has. a scrap book containing much of the history of this lost fight, for citizenship, a record which should prove of great worth to some Indian Territory historian.

' ' Usually when men hunt it is with the fond hope of finding game, but eight men of the United States Public Health Service are in Oklahoma for what they hope will be an unsuccessful hunting expedition. They are looking for. rodents, such as ground squirrels, rats, gophers and similar animals which may be carrying the organism , causing bubonic plague. ' J' With only eight cases of human plague reported in the United States from 1930 to 1939,' the-disease in human beings in this country may be thought to have become merely a matter of academic interest; but when the situation is viewed in the light of the expanding areas in which plague-infected wild rodents and insect parasites have been found In recent years, the disease assumes Significant public health importance and become a problem fraught with po-tental danger, Dr. G.

" - infection was proved to exist in the ground squirrels in nine California counties, extending 400 miles from San Fmacisco, records show. Up to January 1, 1940, the infection had been found in wild rodents or their parasites in states as far North as Washington and Montana and as far east ahd south as New Mexico. The public health service workers want to find if the Infection has spread into Oklahoma.

The day of Pentecost came as far as we can judge, on Sunday1, May 28, A. D. 30. It was the feast of the harvest; it was celebrated by the Jews in commemoration of their possession of -the land of promise. 'Die apostles were gathered together in their house in Jerusalem, probably in that upper room. Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. - And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and, strange to say, they began to. speak in other languages. The city was filled with Jews from different parts ofPalestine there to celebrate the Pentecost, and to their amazement, these men from Galilee, ignorant men, most of them, spoke to these strangers in their own tongues, Behold, are not all these which speak Galileans? asked some. Others scornfully replied, These men are full of new. wine. Peter Explains Seeing the general amazement, Peter, the spokesman, stood up in their midst and explained that they were not drunk, as it was only the third hour of the day around 9 oclock. Quoting the prophet Joel, he quoted, And it shall come to pass in the last days, salth.

Be sure to clean both sides of the shades Brush again with the soft cloth. Household Hints If you make your own curtains, hem both selvages edges, not just the one that will hang down the center of the window. You will find it easier to iron the curtains so that they hang straight if you take this tip. This is particularly true if you do not have curtain stretchers. Household Hints When buying new towels, look carefully over the hems. Well wearing towels should have hems that are tinned- back neatly, stitched firmly with fine stitches. The comers of the hems should be backstitched. Household Hints' To remove adhesive tape marks from fabrics, apply kerosene or carbon tetrachloride to the stain, then wash in warm water.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF I here unto set my hand and seal of office this 7th day of April, 1941. j . JOE H. FORD, County Judge, (Seal) of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall seevisions, and your old men shall dream dreams. He told them that Jesus of Nazareth, who was approved of God and who worked miracles among, them, had been slain by them, but that He had risen again, which he, Peter, and his friends had personaUr witnessed. Therefore, let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Peters sermon converted many, who were -baptized, and continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship. . Peter and John went to the temple one day to. pray. -Now a certain- man Who had been lame since his birth was daily laid at the gate called Beautiful of the temple to ask for charity. He accosted the apostles, and Peter looked at him, then said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee; In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." Peter took hold of the mans hand, lifted him up, and the man walked, his feet and ankle . bones receiving strength. He leapt up, walked, entered into the temple, praising God. And all the people who saw him also praised God. Peter Again Preaches Peter took this occasion to again preach to the people, but when the priests, captains of the temple and Sadduccees heard about this matter they arrested Peter and John and, as it was evening, put them in prison for the night. In the morning they heard what they had to say. You remember how timid Peter had been heretofore, and fearful of being arrested. Thrice had he denied his Master. But now, knowing that his Lord had risen, and filled with the Holy Ghost, he bravely defied these leaders. He told them that it was through the Lord Jesus, whom they had crucified, that he was able to perform this miracle. The leaders were puzzled as to what to do with these men. The miracle was indisputable, and the people were filled with wonder and praise, and they hardly dared punish the men. They sent Peter and John outside while they conferred, and then called them back and told hem they could go, but they were not to preach the gospel of Jesus any more. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. Nevertheless, the priests, captains and Sadduccees again warned them and let them go, and they went to their own company and reported all that had happened to them. And the whole company rejoiced and praised God and prayed. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
