We are Omar Benedict in the Oklahoma Compares Oklahomans with the People of Other States. "Do you know that the people of Oklahoma spend just about twice as in living and in entertainment ae the people of any other state in the Union? Do you know that a man on a salary here of $50 a week lias just about as much left at the end of the week as the man in Iowa or Illinois has on Do you kuow we are living too blooming fast? Do you know that rents ate higher here 'nan most true wages are higher, but it' is a bad habit to get into. The thing of having a $10 ap petite on a $5 wage will worn hardships on us when the settling down time comts. Back in Iowa.and III inois the farmers will ''kick 1 like a bay sterr if they have to pay over six per cent interest; and out here if a banker would let a farm er have monev at less than ten. the farmer would fab dead.

Back in those s'aics, everybody pays mil here we all do business on a credit. Back there the men will wear one $1.79 hat for three oil' here we must have at le.tst a baf dozen of ihe $5 sort a season One everyday suit satisfies those people, wuh a tu'ushod up SIIII- (lay 11 8-J it, "hich.they bought at Sears-Robuck for $14 48 out here a $55 made is put on and worn for a three months session and handed out to the gardener Swift people, we westerners. No wonder those of the east come out here and UIHKC money fust. They do '-jwr money than we of the west get, but tliev save it We'll all have to put on the back pedal some of these days, and then ir will be hell We're running so fast that we can't keep up with ourselves, and at the same time we are not run ning over anybody."

Patillo, Muldrow, Okla. Phooe 172. 31 4t He killed fourteen men, but nothing more true could be said of him than that he did his duty, and the Federal officers and ex-Federal officers in Eastern Oklahoma mourn the death of old Bass Reeves which occurred last Tuesday. Bass," as he was known, for he was a negro. No history of frontier pay in Indian territory would be complete with no mention of Bass Reeves, and no tale of the old days of "Hell on the Border," could be told without the old deputy marshal as a prominent character.

He died Tuesday, after several months' illness, at the age of 72. Far thirty-two years, beginning way hack in-the seventies and end ing in 1907, Basn Reeves wasadep- ntv. During that tune he was seni to arjresi many of ihe most desperate characters that in days infested this part of the Indian couutry. and because lie was gifted with a mind that knew not how to quail, and an intensity of purpose that led him to follow criminals day and night, dogging the fugitives because nf this, he rarely failed to land hiH man the Muskogee Fed eral jail. As his record shows, it often happened that he was unable to gel him alive, but the old deputy i )tten said that he had nevt -r shot a man except, in self defense.

He was once tried for murder but was acquitted on the ground thai he had killed the man in the discharge ol his duty to save his own life. in his youth aud in the days of Arkansas, WHS a slave, entering the Federal service as deputy ten years after the close of ihe civil war. That was long be fore a court had been established in Indian territory and all that country was "ruled" from the (anions court- iVrt'SmiTnv 'I her. when people started to come into the Indian territory aud a marshal sent to Muskogee, Reeves was detailed there. One of the many acts which typifies tlie man and best shows his devotion to duty was the arrest of his own son: A warrant for the arrest of the younger Reeves for murdering his wife had been issued and Marshal Bennett said that perhaps another deputy had better be sent to serve it.

Old Bass was in the room and quietly said: "Give me the writ." He went out, arrested hia son, brought him into court and saw a jury try him, convict him and sentence him to life imprisonment. Reeves had many narrow escapes but was never wounded. At different times his hat was shot in two, buttons were shot from his coat, his hat punctured and his bridle reins shot from his hand, but no bullet ever touched las body. And this, too, in spite of the fact that he said he never fired a shot until after he was fired at. Certificate ot-Partnership.
