TO ABANDON O. N.
A letter received yesterday by |
Governor Ferguson from General
Solicitor M. A. Low of the Rock Is-1
land, states the company has decided
to run all Choctaw Northern trains I
from Salton. across to Hitchcock on a f
line to be contructed Immediately,
thence south over the Rock Island)
track to Watonga and Geary, thus j
making the Choctaw Northern a|
thing of the past between Geary and
The decision was rendered by the
company, says Mr. Lowe, on account j
of the bad route through the hills of
the Choctaw Northern in Blaine
county, where thre is a very dangea-
ous trestle and a grade of eighty feet
to the mile.
The people of Watonga and also of
Geary, are anxious that the Rock Is-
land would arrange to use both lines
through those cities, but this letter
from M. A. Low seems to have set-
tled the matter. The line across
from 8alton to Hitchcock will be[
constructed at once.—State Capital.

Rev. and Mrs* M. F. Irons, of G^aq^
Okla., departed this life for the
heavenly world Saturday, June 14, at

croupe after a few hours illness and
suffering, being aged 8 months, and
25 days. She was horn Sept. 19th.
1901, in Afton, Iowa. This sweet
babe was the youngest first of the
eleven children of this home to be
called away by death. The oldest of
three grown children and her husband
are living at Ferguson, O. T. Little
Lela was an unually bright babe for
her age and was so tenderly loved by
* her loyed ones that her loss will be
long felt, but she is with the loving
Shepherd safe in Paradise.
"There is no death —
An angel form walks o’er the earth
With silent tread;
He bears our best loved things away.
And then we
Gall them dead."
All that was mortal of this pre-
cious babe in life and death was lain
to rest in Geary cemetery Sunday
June 15th, after a short service at the
home of the parents by the under-
signed in the presence of a good
number of friends. H. H. Ganb.

In a recent issue of the Geary Bulle-
tin we happened to mention a few
remarks that were made by some of
the Richland people concerning High
Prairie and Edenview not appearing
at that last box supper at Richland.
We stated that Richland had con
tributed to both those neighborhoods
and that none of High Prairie and
but few of the Edenview people ap-
peared. Well, Edenview through the
Geary Gazette proposes we count
noses which we might be able to do.
It rattled poor Jack of Poverty Flat
so that he actually thinks he has dis-
covered a soft spot in ,a certain

FANNIE FERN MARRIED.
T’is*quite true and the editor will
tell you so. We were married Satur- ]
day. Just bow we had courage we
are unable to say, however we have
changed our name and the Apache
boys have no show. We are sorry and
sorry and so are they. (?) But our ma
said it was proper so we got married.
The above is taken from the Review
of Apache, and refers to our former
railroad correspondent, “Fannie
Fern,” whom our readers all remem- j
her and wish abundant success.
