It has been the work of half a dozen
city councils in this town to get side-
walks where they are badly needed
but so far all efforts in that direction
seem to have failed. In some spots
public spirited citizens have put down
their own walks but they do not con-
nect with each other and you can not
get to no part of the town without
wading through loud half the way. It
does seem that some effective meas-
ures would be adopted to get walks in
this city some time
The Glencoe Woodmen have decid-
ed on a thanksgiving hunt- The tally
sheets are out and include every kind

jack rabbit. 5; prairie chicken, 10:
| crow. 10; hawk, 10; wolf, 50. The
lodge has been divided into two bodies
and the side that makes the highest
schedule will be given an oyster sup-
per by the losers. It is presumed the
price of game will be very high at
Glencoe thpt day.

Owing to tl.eir inability to gpf. wood
in sufficient quantities for fuel the

out all the stoves in the school build-

The change meant the change of four-

A movement is on foot among some
of the business men of Stillwater and
Payne Co. looking to the sinking of a
well for the discovery of natural gas.
These men and this purpose should be
in every way encouraged. A few hun-
dred dollars will test whether or nort
gas exists in this community. There
is every reason to believe that the ef-
fort will be successful. The Kansas
gas belt has an outward appearance no
more favorable than here—In fact men
of experience say this is the bettei
prospect. The discovery of gas here
would put Stillwater and Payne coun-
ty far in the lead, and bring about a
business prosperity and increase of
population that would make us at
once a great Renter of trade. Let the
good work go on.

The young couple are both well and
favorably known in this city, the bride

nent resident of this city. The groom
is one of Stillwater’s most popular
druggists having lately pnrehased the

He is a son of H. E. Hand, president
of the National Bank of Commerce of
tfeis city. The happy couple expect to

During the trial of the Bell-Slattery
case in the probate court yesterday
Judge Burns received a telegram an-
nouncing the sudden death of his sec-
ond son, Bruce, of Typhoid fever at
Collinsville, I. T. The trial of the
case at hand was postponed until Nov.
28th and the judge and his wife at once
started for Collinsville where they will
take charge of the remains. They will
probably be brought here for burial.
A number of our citizens are agitat-
ing the proposition of putting down a
prospect hole in this vicinity to see
and find out what lies under us. The
great obstacle in the way however is
the fact that persons who would risk
their money in this kind of a venture
cannot be protected, under our pres-
ent laws, in case they find anything.
If the promoters of such a project
could be protected, capital could be
easily found for the venture.
The police court has been doing a
big business during the past week in
looking after gambling cases. It will
be rememb°rrd that at the last city
election the church element of the
city cut quite a figure and practically
elected their whole ticket. This was
expected to mean that there would be
no gambling and that the saloons
would be made to run in strict con-
formity to law. The newly elected of
fleers proved a disappointment how
ever. They not only failed to uphold
the law but never in the history of this
city has gambling been more notorious
than during the present administra-
tion. Gaming tables, slot machines
and all sorts of catch penny devices
have been allowed to run anywhere,
apparently with the consent of the
council that was elected upon a pledge
to suppress everything of the kind.
Last week however the mayor and
council took a notion that a reforma-
tion must take place and that gam-
bling must cease. They at once took
measures to arrest all persons caught
gambling and as a consequence the
police court has been doing a good
business of late. The council has be-
gun rather late to fulfil! its pledges to
the people but has a chance to redeem
itself yet.

The Ponca City Times is pessimistic
to picturesqueness over the result of
the Kansas election. It notes that
McKinley has carried the state, but
says that “if next year a couple of
grasshoppers should stroll up the state
and destroy a fanner’s squasti vine,
Kansas would go overwhelmingly pop-
ulist again.
Ex-candidate Robert A. Neff emits
a final wail through the columns of
the Guthrie Leader on the result of
the late election in Oklahoma. He
says he is more convinced than ever
that Bryanism is right—any man who
can’t learn a little bit in a campaign
ought to be defeated. He further say*
that lack of money i* the source of hi*
defeat. Does he mean to say the peo-
ple of the territory can lie bought? We
presume the Hon. Robert A. still ha*
the sympathy of the Payne county
