In Cold, Hard Cash.
SPARKS; W. H. Towne and May-
or Fred Graham, of Sparks, have Bone
to Sherman. Texas, where they will
file suit against the Frisco railroad
for the killing of Charley 'Town* a
son of Mr. Towne, and ^urby
who were killed on a road crossing
near Wetumka, last week.
An extra train, containing am
her of railroad officials, stru
wagon in which were the young men,
as they were crossing the tracks,
killed them instantly.
Both were knocked nearly two him
dred feet away from the track
engine, which it is said was rmn.nS
over 50 miles an hour. The claim
made that the boys could not see jut -
or wav of the track because of so
many freight cars on the switebe
and that the extra tram did ^ either
whistle or ring the bell as it passed
through the town. The road 1
charged with criminal carelessnesos.

Oil Field® at Bartlesville to be Con-
nected With Port Arthur
WASHINGTON: Secretary Hitch-
cock la about to approve a five million
dollar Independent pipe line project
from Indian Territory oil fields at
Bartlesville, to Port Arthur. Pitts-
burg oil operators are working out
the details, under the secretary’s
Those interested wish to run an
eight-inch line to accommodate their
Port Arthur refinery with a daily ca-
pacity of 16,000 barrels. The secre-
tary thought this totally inadequate
and suggested two eight-inch lines or
one 16-inch line. This suggestion
will probably be complied with.
The secretary had many similar
projects under consideration in recent
years, but this is the first to conform
to his ideas of what the pipe line
should be. Apparently there is now
no serious obstacle in the way and
the plans will be submitted to the
department soon. The secretary be-
lieves the independent line 500 miles
long will have plenty of business with
Indian Territory fields and that it
will be adequate to break the Prai-
rie Oil and Gas company’s monopoly.
The .Bartlesville crude oil is under-
stood to be better adapted for refin-
ing than the Texas oil.
A rise in the price of crude oil,
from about 35 cents to $1 a barrel is
also expected with the completion of
the pipe line, if the expectation of
other similar projects is repeated.

Tho Hessians were ®ent by one
rout® and the KnitUsh, under charBo
of Col. Thomas Seymour, of Connec-
ticut, by another. Th® lallor routo
was what was known as th© Old Bay
road, and was pretty nearly the same
routo as that now traversed by tho
Massachusetts Central railroad.
When tho prisoner® reached Hadley
they wore quartered at tho foot of
what la now West street, near tho
Burgoyne was 111, and Col. Porter,
who lived where his great-grandson
now lives, Invited hlin to his homo
to rest over night. The next morning,
before tho general left for Boston, ho
gave Col. Porter his sword, which has
been In tho family ever since.
Col. Porter charged his son never
to allow It to go out of the family,
the son repeating the charge to his
son, and ho to the present members
of tho family, Samuel 1>. Smith and
his sister, Miss Lucy Smith, who prise
Gen. Burgoyne’s gift very highly.
The sword is what Is known as a
dress sword, or rapier. It Is a beau-
tiful piece of workmanship, the handle
being of silver exquisitely wrought,
and the blade of finely tempered steel
covered with delicate tracery.
On one side of the blade near the
hilt Is the king’s seal, with the well
known words: "Honi soit qui mal y
pense;” on the other side is a crown
and the letters “G. R.,” which stand
for “Georgius Rex.”
Authorities who have examined the
sword say they have never seen these
letters on a sword before, and sug-
gest that it was presented to Gen.
Burgoyne by the king, with whom he
was a great favorite.
The original scabbard, which was
of leather, was silver mounted. This
scabbard long since crumbled to
pieces, and has been replaced by an-
other on which the original silver
mountings are placed. They conta fi
the words: “Loxhaus, Royal Ex-
This sword is all the more inter-
esting from the fact that it was last
worn at the battle of Saratoga, which,
without doubt, was the decisive battle
of the revolutionary war, for as the
result of this battle the French were
led to send money and troops to the
colonists at a time when they were
After Burgoyne’s soldiers reached
Boston congress ordered officers and
men sent to Georgia. Many of the
soldiers settled in that state.
Burgoyne was allowed to return to
England the next spring, where he
soon entered parliament and became
a stanch friend of the colonists.
