A few weelts ago Swearingen, the
photographer, took a line view of the
cotton market in Guthrie, showing
hundreds of wagon loaded with cot-
ton, Which will give the people all

the importance of Guthrie as a cotton
market. The State Capitai. has sent
one of these views off and next week
will have a splendid cut of the same.
Every business man in Guthrie and
[iOgan county should use this cut upon
his letter heads, accompanied with
appropriate reading matter, which the
State Cai'Itai. will furnish if you de-
sire. In order to enable everyone to
take advantage of this opportunity
special low prices will br made 011 let-
ter heads and envelopes for the next
thirty days and all orders will be
promptly filled. Get your orders in
early, gentlemen, and avoid the rush.

Minnku'OI.is, Minn., Nov. 4.—One of
the most daring1 train holdups that has
occurred in a long- time is reported to
have been perpetrated about six o clock
this morning* on the Great Northern
road near Anoka. The affair was re-
ported to Superintendent of Police
Smith about ten o'clock this forenoon
by several of the victims, whose ap-
pearance indicated rough treatment
and wlilse story was in sub-
stance as follows: The train was
a mixed freight and one of the box
cars contained 2G harvest hands who
were on their way home from the
north, and they all possessed more or
less money, having paid the conductor
for the privilege of riding. NN hen the
train reached Anoka at the hour stat-
ed it was boarded by three men who
proceeded to hold up and rob the liai-
vest hands at the point of re-
volvers. As soon as the train
had got well under way the road
agents entered the car and proceeded
to get in their work. Two of the rob-
bers covered the occupants with guns,
while the third selected a man and
went through him, and after being re-
lieved of what money and valuables
he possessed, the victim was command-
ed to jump for his life and if he hesi-
tated he was pushed or kicked from
the car. As the train was going- at a
rapid speed it is feared that several of
the men were killed.
