Lies can desfrby, but not create.—Tupper. A STORY OF WEALTH The biggest news story in this newspaper .—or--any-othoi - -papGr in .the ,~8tate ~today~is found on the market page. There is written the finest prosperity item that the state could desire. You will find that hogs are selling as high as $11.50 in the St. Louis and Chicago markets. Cattle are going as high as $10.50. Coin is quoted at from $1.10 to $1.12. ,'Wheat is around $1.35. Oats are above fifty cents. Cotton is worth aproximately thirty cents. And you can go on right down through the list of everything that is produced on' Oklahoma farms and you will find price ranges in proportion with these quoted. • Oklahoma is full of livestock. This will be recorded,.as the state's greatest grain year. -Unless present signs fail there will be a very large cotton crop. With prices as they are now i his means that the era of the greatest prosperity Oklahoma farms .'•have ever \nown will Iw upon us -this autumn. It means •that farmers Will pay their debts and have money left. It means that banks'".and merchants will pay their dibts. It means a largo surplus of money , left over. That means distribution of money to everybody. This state is basically and primarily an agricultural state. When the farms are prosperous: everybody is pros-l porous and the price of oil cannot change! these cond'tions. * It is true that the farmer has gone through four years of bitter adversity. He •was broke, out he was game and he is coming through a big .winner, this year and it appears now as if nothing can prevent it. Merchants and all business men- have .suffered m almost the same proportion though thov are never right up against the raw edire of poverty like the tarmer is who lias a succession, ol -crop iailures, but when the farmer suffers so does everybody else and when he prospers that prosperity spreads i- to every line of business. So if you are 1 ihie, turn to the Timcs- Demociai market page today and read clear through the list of quotations. When you have finished you will have banished the blues and you will be looking around for a chance to extend and expand your business. The , market page tells a wonderful story for Oklahoma prosperity.
