This is the headquarters of the Dill- O'Connor colony of Cherokee hoomers and its members have been flocking- here for two weeks past in anticipation of the invasion. Only .well-equipped f?»mers have been, admitted to membership in the colony, and the boomers present a decidedly more prosperious appearance than did' th* Oklahoma boomers.
