There are even in these days a good many families In the United States •mho find It possible to do "a certain •mount of moderately high thinking and still cultivate some of the graces •f life. They may. be obliged to live •Imply, Bays Scribner's, and yet may not need to use up all their vitality In manual labor. True, they must walk when others ride, they must take thought to their apparel, that it be presentable at small cost, and when they entertain their friends they must do it simply. But they have time to read books and they have money to educate their children. Oftener than not they are persons whose family traditions incline them to fastidiousness in soolal matters. They and their -"•forebears have been accustomed not «a!y to well-bred, but interesting people and have kept in touch with what was going on in the world; In short they have a taste for the best society Twenty-five years ago there was no reason why they shouldn't maintain Uieir inherited or acquired right to it, hut the tendency on the part of certain of their fellow citizens to what lias been characterized as "the habit Of getting rich" has changed all that. It is not only that the accumulation Of colossal fortunes restricts the financial chances of the moderately ambitious majority, but It deprives them of some innocent and legitimate com forts and pleasures to which they think themselves reasonably entitled, by increasing so tremendously the cost of living with the standard of luxury la raised in proportion. This, to be sure, is an old cry, but to the impecunious majority it does not cease to be a live issue. Tet one cannot find fault with the people who hare made money for wanting to spend it; one cannot be surprised if their ideas are crude and if they fail to appreciate a refined simplicity. Most of us spend all the money we can afford and we should not thank anyone who should presume to dicta* to us as to what we ought to buy with it The very rich do not In the least Intend to make life hard for the rest of the world. In fact, from their kind-hearted desire to give pleasure we get some singularly bad results, such as, for instance, the poor girl with rich tastes, who, although ahe need not always be a Lily Bart, yet is always In an unnatural and demoralizing position; and the young man who goes to the dogs in his effort to keep up the pace with his rich mates. WYCKLIFFS STILL ELUSIVE, | Marshal Darrough Strikes Trail, Bat No Results. Vinita, I. T.—United Stares Mar[ shal Darrough 'has returned from his chase after the Wycfcliffe brothers, fullblood Indian outlaws. Marshal ['Darrough has withdrawn the full- blood Indian posse under John Smith, Son of Red Bird Smith, finding that their work was unsatisfactory, and the chase'is now being conducted by the regular deputies, who., have Indians assisting them. THe officers found that Charley Tucker, a full- blood on Cedar creek, had been keeping the Wyckliffe brothers and the officers surrounded the house at night, but found that the outlaws had escaped just before they gpit there. The blood hounds took the trail and the officers are now following the trail, but is thought that they are now about one day behind the bandits. Women On the Farm The little woman on the farm who raises a couple hundred chickens a year and sells a few dozen eggs every week to buy calico dresses is just as happy as the wom:n of the city i 'ho has plenty. There is nothing like the freedom of the farm. HOPE FOR SETTLEMENT. Rich Hill Miners Would Like to Return to Work. Rich Hill, Mo.—Miners and operators alike are hoping that the conference being held in Kansas City between representatives of both bodies may avert the pending strike in this district. The miners are becoming very restless and are wanting to return to work. Already many have gone back to work in some of the small mines which have adjusted a settlement with the United Mine Workers of America. At Panama, for the first time, the local has issued rations to the union miners. ho will not go back to work until a final settlement is made. On the other hand, the operators are losing money every day, while those who have signed up are having more work than they can do. AN ALLIGATOR FARM. Is One of the Attractions To Be Found at Sulphur. Sulphur, I. T-—Wednesday evening W. Anderson received a consignment of forty tlligators from an alligator farm in Arkansas. They range size from the baby to one about nine feet long. It is Mr Anderson's intention to install a small zoological garden at his place adjoining the electric light plant, and he says that he has several consignments of animals on the way to Sulphur. NO PATENTS DELIVERED FOB 60 DAYS Acting Coaimissioncr Beall has Stated Work begins in 60 days 30 DAYS TO DELIVER DEEDS Nearly 80,000 Patents to be Delivered to Cherokees, Choctaws and Cbickasaws Muskogee, I. T.—Acting Commissioner Beall has stated that although the order has been issued for the delivery of patents to allottees the actual work of delivery can not begin for several weeks. He says that it will take at least thirty days, and possiblv two months,'to get the deeds ready for delivery. There is a great deal ot preliminary work to be done in the office of the commissioner before the delivery can begin. The impression has "one abroad that the commission has started the delivery of patents and acting Commissioner Beall is receiving a gre .it I many letters every day from allottees i asking that their deeds be lorwardrd to them. Such applications are useless at this time, as deeds can not be delivered until the preliminary work is finished. There are nearly 50,000 patents to be delivered to allottees, principally in the Cherokee, Choc\aw, Choctiw and Chickasaw nations Thirty thousand of these no to the Choctaws and Chickasaws. Governors McCuhtain and Johnston delivered about 1,100 deeds to allottees about a year ago, but these had not been approved by TO MANAGE HOME SOCIETY Friends of Unfortunate Children El«c* Annual Officers Guthrie O. T.—At the annual meeting of the Oklahoma-Indian Territory Children's Home society, held v here. Horace Speed was re-elected as president, with Rev. E. W.

Wickham was re-elected superintendent, with Mrs. Wickham as matron of the society's home- DIVIDING THE RIO GRANDE • 1 Treaty Regulating the Use of the Water Signed OAS BEEN SOURCE OF FRICTION Mexicans Have Used Water For Over a Century for Irrigation Purposes HUNGRY MAKES CONFESSION Admits Being in the Wickliffe-Gi!strap Fight Vinita, I. T. — United States Marshal W. H- Darrough returned with a posse from the Spavinaw hills, where his officers captured Ben Hungry and Ned Carsalut, who were accomplices of the Wickliffe brothers, full blood Cherokee Ind ian outlaws. The prisoners were placed in the United States jail charged with complicity in the murder, of Deputy United States Marshals I. L.. Gilstrap and J. H. Vier. Hungry confessed that he was in the fight when Deputy Gilstrap was killed and that Carsalut harbored the Wickliffe brothers and Hungry the the secretary of the interior and were | night before the battle John Smith nd his full blood "Night Hawks," delivered without authority of the in terior department. These instruments were conseauently recalled anu all have been returned to the office of ' the commissioner but fifty-nine. Thus through the unauthorized action of the governors of the Choctaw and Chickasaw nations most of the allot­ tee* in tWnse nations will be at least ! a year late in receiving their deed*. Practically no patents have been J delivered in the Cherokee nation. Five | thousand patents have been delivered j to Chief Rogers of the Cherokees, but i so far as can be learned he has not | who are working under Marshal Darrough got on the trail of Hungry and Carsalut and sent for the blood hounds and effected their capture and they went on after the Wickliffes ani up to this time have not been able to force a battle with them Hungry made a complete confession to Marshal Darrough, admitting that he was with the Wickliffes when they killed Deputy Gilstrap and had been scouting with the Wickliffes since Gilstrap was killed. Hungry Humble Heroes. Calling attention to the fidelity of the telegraph operators in San Francisco, where they kept their heads and stuck to their keys till driven out by the flames, the New York Sun has this to say: "Fix the eyea of the community on a man In official place and he will scorn his own safety. Olve the obscure man something to do that calls for greater activity than usual and he will seldom fall to come up to What is expected of him. Exceptionally daring deeds done by our firemen and policemen are often the result ot the spirit of the service, though It Is possibly less so in their case than fn that of the soldier or the sailor who Is of emulation all compact It Involves no reflection on the soldier, the aailor or those who. In other ranks of life, practice the military virtues of discipline and obedience to say that the man who. In great peril, goes on doing his ordinary duty, with no hope of applause, honors or individual distinction, is as heroic as any hero. That is why we ask you to take off your hat to the telegraph operators In Ban Francisco." Crusade Against Liquor Sapulpa, I. T.—A big shinment of iquor sent from Strouds, O. T.. to Tulsa, I. T , was taken from the cars here by deputy United States marshals and destroyed Whisky h«s been sold here quit freely in Sapulpa and Tulsa for the past few weeks and the officers are sLarting a new crusade against jointists and bootleggers had been chased so closely by the delivered the deeds to any except two 1 ..

For almost a century th e Mexicans living along the lower river have made large use of its waters for the purpose of irrigating their lands. But in recent years private companies on the upper waters in the United States have, by the construction of wing dams, diverted a large part of the water to this side of the river. The Mexicans have preferred claims for the damages sustained, but so far without success. Now the plans of the reclamation service have made it certain that practically all of the water wilbbe retained on American soil unless some proper scheme of division can be arranged. ered to Cherokee allottees as soon as the distribution from the main office begins. BIG INCREASE IN BANKING One Million Dollars Invested in New Institutions Last Year Topeka.—Kansas ~eople invested more than $1,000,000 in stock in new- banks established in the state during the past year. In addition to t'ns amount expended in establishing new banks, the deposits in the old and i 1 '-new institutions have increased at the rate of about $1.500000 a ni.'ivh during the year There are now in the state 6 .U state and iSo nation-.' banks, or an average of eii?ht bunks Armies and navies are expensive; we need farmers more than we need •oldlers; we need merchant ships more than we need battleships. The civil war demonstrated that it does not take long to make a nrst-claaa lighting man of the American citizen and there are 10,000,000 such ready to flght in a quarrel with a stranger. The only power that is at all likely to ' give us serious trouble Is Japan, and ahe will not undertake it until she shall think ' herself strong enough to order all the other white folks out of her neighborhood. That will be generations hence and need give us no concern. Our business Is to make money, •ot to engage In war. We have an immense territory right here In the republic that is yet virgin and the demand is for laborers, not soldiers. NO INTEREST IN RATE BILL. Chairman Hepburn Calls Commifee" Meeting to Consider it. Washington, D C.—Without the faintest show of interest either on the part of the members of the house of the galleries, the child of the house, the railroad rate bill, came back to that body from the senate, some what disfigured, but still recognizable The bill went to the speaker's tabl- The speaker, during the day, examined tj-.e amendment* made bv the senate Chairman Hepburn of the house committee on inter-sta;; and foreign commerce, has called an informal meeting of his committee to consider the railway rate bill.

Muskogee, I. T—A big stomp dance, which was attended by a large number of fullblood Creek Indians, came to an end May 20th, on the "stomp" grounds near Oktaha.

Bartlesville. I. T.—J. LaTourette, formerly of Marion, Ind., has renewed his proposition to locate in Bartles ville a large smeller. He has waived the conditions of free site and free gas formerly asked and will accept the proposition of a bonus of $8 ,000. William Jarskouw has proposed the organization of a glass factory. Local people will take a sufficient amount of the stock to insur e the location of the factory here. An esteemed contemporary has opened the columns to a discussion of the question "Why do educated and refined women marry bald-headed men?" and men with and without hair seem to be considerably agitated over it Even women are Joining In the dlsousslon, and there are as .many explanations as there are correspondents. None of them, however, explains, says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. It is the form of the question evidently that confuses. It presumes too much and the presumption is accepted as established by the WTangle— they do not question the premise. Educated and refined women do not JW v a_. rule, .marry bald-headed men, though they do sometimes, when 'hey cannot catch them earlier. The question deals with particulars as generals. It should be: "Why do women marry men?" And he Rnswer to this, If we do not confuse the issue by the citation of examples, of which we remark: "What on earth did she see in htm?" is simple. Women marry men to get husbands. Men marry women to get wives. Fat, lean, young, old, hirsute and bald, all marry for the same reason. "It Is not good for man to live alone." Anyway, why should the bald nead be brought into the limelight in 'his spectacular way? Is it not consplcu* ous enough as It Is to attract much un- deslred attention without forcing the iBBue? Bald-headed men are worthy citizens. They must be, for they are always under Inspection. A bald head Is a light that cannot be hid under a bushel, It may not conceal Itself. If It frolics somewhat gayly, the world sayB: "Behold you shameless one!" A bald head must perforce seek virtuous wsys. There are few or no bald- headed villains. They are scarce as fat beggars. Let not the finger of scorn be pointed at the bald head for that he marries a "refined and educated woman." It Is to his credit. The bald head sets an example that the hirsutely r*ch might emulate with profit. The bnld bead Is the symbol of lofty cltlzen- Bblp and "shines" like a good deed In a naughty world. BUSINESSLIKE GOVERNMENT City of England That Is Bun on a Simple Yet Very Effective System. NOT A MIRROR BROKEN. Car of Furniture Wrecked in Yards at Bartlesville. Bartlesville. I. T.— A freight car on the Missouri, Kansas & Texas railroad, loaded with furniture for Bai- tlesville merchants including many mirrors, was overturned in a wreck in the local yards Instead of the contents of the car being a total loss, as was expected, not one of the mirror even was broken. The overturned cars were restored to the track by the wrecking train. Told of Carl Schurz. About a year ago the late Carl Schurz was asked: "You have been in the United States senate, at the head of a cabinet department and editor of a great newspaper. Which position was most to your taste?" He answered, "the senate—incomparably." No other man of foreign birth ever showed such fine command of the English language or used it so felicitously. A man who objected strongly to his politics but admired his talents as i writer once said: "I wish Mr. Schurz couldn't write so well; I could hate him better." Interurban Line. The trolley line connecting Fort Gibson with Muskogee will be built and work will commence shortly after the citizens of the Fort city secure a right of way through the town and donate five acres of ground for terminal facilities. The proposed route has >Jst been gone o.c. U j President Reeres of the traction company, accompanied by W. S. Benson and W. E. Fertig, capitalist! from New York. The government of Manchester is a business. Its liabilities are about $156,000,000: Its assets are about $147,000,000; and the deficiency, about $9,000,000, represents the amount which the ratepayers have to contribute each year, writes Samuel Merwin, In Success Magazine. The figures indicate that It Is a big business. The management of this big business Is absolutely In the hands of the elty council acting through Its committees. As I have said, the system is simple, and the responsibility cannot be evaded as It can be In a muddled-up, complicated system like that of New York or Chicago or Newark. The people know what has to he done, and they know who has to do it. But, even at that, big figures are confusing to the average mind. And then, too. It Is well to submit the figures which a city council p\b- iishes to an unsympathetic eye. And so. because the people of Manchester propose to know what is done with their money, they have in their service two men whose "business It is to investigate and publish, at regular Intervals, every tendency of the council toward carelessness or extravagance. Never for a moment are the councillors permitted to forget whose money It is that they are managing with such fluent ease. These two men are known as "elective auditors." Tbey are elected directly by the people, and the more merciless their attacks on the council the better they please the people. They are free from the slightest obligation to the council.'* They have access to all facts and figures, for the people of Manchester find it difficult to understand why their government, managed by their personal representatives with their money, should not work wholly in the light. These reports are published weekly in the Manchester "City News." Trailing the Missing Link. Scientists are. again on the trail of the "missing link." Two years ago certain marks were found on a block of sandstone near Warranambool, in Australia, which were thought to be the imprints of the footsteps ot a prehistoric man. At the time this idea was ridiculed, but a plaster cast was sent to Ucrmany, and the inevitable German savant went ont to Investigate the matter. He now reports that in bis opinion they were genuine human Imprints, and this, taken in conjunction with the extraordinary human skulls to be seen in the Warranambool museum, la supposed to show that a link between humanity and the ape has been discovered.—Chicago Uecord- Herald. How Germany Curbs Automobilista. The German government's proposed way of punishing automobilista who run down the people of the countryside is worth considering. Embodied In a bill is the scheme obliging auto­ mobilista to pay life annuities to those dependent on persons killed by. their motor cars or to those permanently Injured by them. The owners of tha cars and not the chauffeurs would be held responsible and the annuities would be assessed by the courts. -
