PRACTICAL TEST OF BRYAN'S
The actual working of the bank-
deposit guaranty plan is now being
seen in Oklahoma as It operated
in time of need, when banks are
falling and depositors aro demand
ing their money. This acid test of
tho scheme convinces most of the
editorial observers that it Is un
sound, although its friends main
tain their confidence in it. It seems
that In September the Columbia
Bank and Trust Company, of Okla
homa, City, went to the wall with
liabilities of somo U.400.000, which
swallowed up the entire guaranty
fund on hand and compelled the
State to call on the other banks for
more. Then two. other banks went'
down, nnd tho uemanus on tne
guaranty fund became so heavy that
some of the depositors were asked to
accept paper hold by the defunct;
banks In place of cash, ana otner
depositors havo received nothing,
The Salt Lake Tribune says that
Tin amnll Infill ilnnnxltnrs -woro imld
promptly, "whllo tho largo deposl-
tors and non-residents have not been
paid at all." Tho Indictments of
tho bank officials aro being held up
by Governor Haskell, says tho same
paper, pending nn investigation by
tho Stato Banking Board.
Tho Governor Is quoted by the
Minneapolis Journal as saying that
tho Columbia Bank failed becauso '
it was "very generous in protecting
nnd aiding Its friends in the oil
buslnsss," and that "It Is a question
whether this generosity waa tho re
sult of bad Judgment only or other
wise." Another report In an Okla
homa paper is that "topheavy loans'
were made upon doubtful security,"
and "this sort of business led to tho
circulation of frequent rumors"
which "provoked approhenslon," and
"tho crash was theu Inevitable." .
Such statements give point to tho
criticism frequently mado thut tho,
guaranty plan places a premium up
on reckless banking.
Laughter Is a cheap luxury. Let(
us all laugh moro. uno goou inugn
la worth moro than a thousand
sighs. A sigh only takes a drop of
Hfo blood from tho. heart; a good
laugh puts ono moro big red drop
thero. A laugh stirs up tho blood,
expands tho chest, inflates tho lungs,
stretches tho muscles nnd oloctlfles
tho whole system. Man is tho only
creaturo endowed with tho power
of laughter. Animals may grin, but
man alono can laugh. Pity tho man
who lots a day go by without a
hearty laugh. "Tho man who can
not laugh," aayB Carlyle, "Is only flt
for treason, stratagemB nnd spoils."
To be ablo to see the funny side of
things is a faculty which can easily
bo cultivated. To appreciate tho hu
morous In things Is to llvo In con
stant happiness. Many a poor
emaciated soul' has laughed himself
into avolrduDoIs. Lauchtcr is n
"good mcdlclno. Laughter is ono of
tho most delightful sounds of earth.
"At all I laugh, ho laughs no doubt;
Tho only difference is, I dare laugh
Tho laughers have been classed
under flvo heads, "the dlmplors, tho
smllers, tho grlnners, tho laughers,
tho horse-laughers." Tho last of
these bespeaks an empty mind. Ono
may be a laugher, without bolng a
horse-laugher. Laughter Is a thing
you can learn out of school. It costs
you nothing; try It.

FIRE AT HAMLINTON.
Tho Family of J. G. "Williams Were
Awakened at An Early Hour.
About 2" a. m. this (Tuesday)
morning tho family of J. G. Williams
of Hamllnton, woro awakened from
a sound sloop to discover that their
homo was on tiro. Mrs. Williams,
who was tho first to discover the
fire, hastily awakened her husband
nnd children, and they scantily
dressed, were enabled to escape from
tho burning building, with their
lives only by tho prompt action.
The fire was under full headway
whon discovered nnd nothing could
bo dono to stay Its progress until
the house and all its contents were
totally destroyed. Mr. and Mrs.
Williams and children found ref
uge In Mr. Hoffman's homo which
Is almost opposlto theirs, and re
mained there until suitable clothing
had been secured to cover them,
when they removed to James Hlne
llne's where they will remain until
they make other arrangements.
The house was well furnished and
amply stocked with food and pro
vision, all of which was destroyed,
and while the loss Is partially cov
ered by Insurance yet the less falls,
heavily upon Mr. Williams. The
cause of the fire at this writing Is.
not known but It is presumed to
have been from a defective flue, as
Mrs. Williams noticed that the fire
had made Its greatest progress
when she awoke In ono corner of
her sleeping apartment nnd in close
proximity to tho chimney.
