The cold snap of the last two weeks in the north made no "hit" at all in Oklahoma, according to a letter to Mrs. Jennie M. Dewel from her son, E. H. Dewel, of Muskogee. It froze hard two weeks ago Saturday night. Peach trees were in bloom and cherry trees were budding out, so there will probably be some damage to fruit. At that, however, Mr. Dewel wrote, the freeze will likely 'be of benefit by thinning out the crop and thus raising prices. This, however, should be the windup of winter for Oklahoma and points south. Winter there does not mean what it does here though, for the lowest thermometer reading at Muskogee this season was 17 degrees above, and that for only two days. Otherwise the weather all winter has been springlike. Business has for a long time been slow in Oklahoma. There is oil in the Muskogee neeighborhood, but prices during the last two years have been too low for profit, and the lack of the accustomed income .from that source has reacted on business.
