Jumped to ll!r Dralb,
Ponca City.—Information lias reachea
here that as the south bound freight
was passing over the bridge across the
Salt Fork, a young man was seen to
leap from the top of one of the box
cars, in an apparent endeavor to reach
the south bank, but failed in the at*
tempt and fell into the river. It is
supposed that he struck a rock and be-
came insensible, as he was not seen by
the train crew to rise again. It was
afterwards learned that the attempt
was made on a bet with a companion
that he could jump to the bank from a
longdistance, thinking the rupid mo-
tion of the train would aid him in
landing safely. The body was shortly
afterward recovered, and in his pock-
ets were found papers which prove him
to be the nephew of Earl Lonsdale, a
well known English military officers
and also letters from a London, Eng-
land, law firm, requesting him to re-
turn and claim a large fortune to
which he had fallen heir. He had a
soldiers' discharge showing that he
had gained distinction while serving
in the British cavalry in India and
Africa, but he had spoiled an otherwise
brilliant career by his wayward and
Boy it Fatally Burt.
A boy 12 years of age, named Stults,
whose home is near Kingfisher, met
with a fatal accident the other day.
Stultz had been plowing and was on
his way to dinner. Just what occurred
is not known as the boy has been un-
conscious ever since. It is supposed
he was riding one of the horses with
the harness on and they took fright.
His foot caught in the chain tugs and
he was dragged a considerable dis-
tance. Before reaching the barn the
team passed in front of a wagon. His
body caught on the tongue and was
thrown up and that released him.
Oklahoma Hank* Report.
Guthrie.—The territorial bank com-
missioner Paul F. Cooper, announced
the other day the consolidated report
of the territorial banks of Oklahoma
at the close of business on September
12, last. The report is a very flatter-
ing statement for the territory and
shows a great increase in every way
since the last consolidated report of
last June. The deposits are nearly
one million dollars greater, the total
resources are one million dollars great-
er and the average reserve held by the
banks is 4K per cent greater. The in-
crease in the number of banks report-
ing is 24.
Oklahoma City.—Mr. Burston the
English cotton statistician, who is now
making his annual inspection tour of
Oklahoma in tke interest of the Liver-
pool Cotton exchange makes some re-
markably accurate estimates of the
United States cotton crop. Last year
his estimate of the number of bales
of cotton produced in the United
States varied from the actual produc-
tion only 50 bales, and in estimating
the crop for the three years past he
was off only 5U0 bales. This is very
close estimating crops amounting to
almost 30,000,000 bales.
