ducted by Mr. Gilmore Was the special

sented his individual views on the

The new extension to Amorilla, 200
miles west of Geary will be formally
opened April 1st. and proper train ser-

town is on the boom.
S. B. Teller, recently promoted
general roadmaster, was in our city
this week. His headquarters are at
McAllister. Every body knows Sam
Teller. He has been connected with
the Choctaw for years, and is popular

pointed roadmaster of this division,
and reports to Mr. Teller.
H. G. Clark, the new general mana-
ger is making a tour of inspection of

complimented upon the present order
of things, and we have no fear but
that Mr. Clark will be pieased.

A YOUNG lJOET.
It is said that great musicians and
eminent painters have to forsake the
busy world and hie themselves into
the darkness of their study in order
to compose a piece or become embued
with the right spirit to successfully
execute a great painting. However
in our midst we have a young aspir-
ing poet in the person of Joe Morris,
operator at the C. O. G. who works
in autithesisto the foregoing by select-
ing a quiet moonlight night and then,
at an hour when all g<»od people are
in the land of nod, or at least should
be, and the stillness of the night is
now and then broken by a distant
hoot of an owl or perchance an oc-
casion ial dismal cry of a coyote, he
wanders out over the rolling prairies
towards the Canadian, where amid the
silent ripple of waters, and the rapid
pulsation of his heart, he drowns the
outside world into inpenetrable chasm
of oblivion and reals of verse after
verse of poetry. In just such a place
and trance did one of his friends who
had followed, And him one lovely
night not long since, and below is
part of what he caught;
“WONDERFUL ‘ATTRACTION’ OK
When he first came to see her
He showed a timid heart,
And when the lights were low
But as their love grew warmer
And they learned the joy of a kiss
They knocked out all the “spaces,”
NOT A FIRE EATER.
There are some men who can do one
thing and others who can do another.
It is an old Roman proverb that what
is good for one man is likely to be bad
for another—likewise some men can
handle fire while others cant. How-
ever this did not keep Mr. Doughty
from working on his perpetual motion
machine and trying to burn “gyp” in
the generator last Tuesday morning.
It developed enough heat in five min-
utes to run an ordinary locomotive np
and down the yards of Geary a day or
even the entire crop of populists out
of Kansas. It Hashed a flame in Mr.
Doughty’s face that made a current
with his mustache. The result was
that it had to be cropped “a la Count
de Castellaine,” the damage to his
machine is not stated.
WHO SENT THE HATCHET?
Mr. Whitenton the genial train
master of the C. N. is very much wor-
ried over the arrival of a "hatchet,
which came to him last week. From
an inspection of the aforesaid article
it closely resembles one thatColumbus
brought over in the Santa Marie in
1492. or an old heirloom of the ancient
Aztecs. A look at the blade and fur-
ther calculation shows conclusively
that its good days of service must have
been during the close of the fifteenth
century. Mr. Doughty hasundisputa-
ble proof that it is the very hatchet
George Washington cut the tree
down with. However Mr. Lucas,
being a populist, declares it was sent
by Carrie Nation. The hatchet can
be seen any day over Mr. Whitenton’s
desk and the public is invited to call
and see if it cannot be discovered
“whosent the hatchet.”
Rev. Dr. Ganes at the First Presby-
terian church Sunday, delivered an
able discourse to a large and apprecia-
tive audience. Rev. Dr. Shanks at
the First Methodist church discourced
to a large congregation. Sunday was a
typical summer day and the churches
were well patronized.

Disralli, the humor of Mark Twain

SHOT TO DEATH.
Adolphu* Trumbly Shoot* Wm. H. Patrick
Four Time* In the Head, Killing
Him Almott Instantly,
One of the most frightful tragedies
in the history of Geary happened last
Saturday afternoon, when Adolphus
Trumbly shot and killed W. II. Patrick
in Pat O’Connor’s store.
The killing happened about 2 o’olock
when the streets were crowded and the
business houses all full of buyers and
the excitement caused by the tragedy
was indeed Intense. People could
hardly believe it possible that Will
Patrick, whom they had seen just a
few moments previous could possibly
be dead. But they soon learned that
such was the sad fact however.
Of the facts leading up to the kill-
ing we know but little, and deeply re-
gret that we know anything, but what
we have heard is as follows: It ap-
pears that Trumbly suspected Patrick
of being intimate with his wife and
had sworn vengcnce against him.
Trumbly was in O’Connor’s store and
sent for Patrick, who was at dinner at
the time, and when the messenger
came for him he left his family with a
smile, telling them he would return in
a few minutes and finish his dinner.
When he arriyed at O’Connor’s store
Trumbly and him began to quarrel
and the lie was passed. Patrick struck
at Trumbly who ran behind a counter,
The marshal being present grabbed
Patrick and tried to hold him. Trum-
bly remarking at the same time that
if the marshal turned him loose he
would kill him. Patrick kept strug-
gling and eventually succeeded in get-
ting loose and started for Trumbly,
who commenced shooting. He shot
four times in rapid succession, each
ball taking deadly effect in Patrick’s
head and face. Trumbly was imme-
diately disarmed and hurried to the
lockup. Two bystanders started with
Patrick to the drug store, and he was
able to walk with their support. He
never spoke but one word after he was
shot. Someone asked him if they
should go for his wife and he said “no.”
He expired almost immediately after
reaching the drug store.
There was loud talk and a strong
feeling against Trumbly immediately
after the shooting and he was hurried
out of town and to Watonga and put
into the county jail.
The deceased was buried Sunday af-
ternoon. The remains were followed
to the cemetery by a large crowd of
This is indeed a sad affair, far too
sad to portray with a pen, and the
whole community is deeply shocked.
The widow and orphan children have
the deepest sympathy from all, and
their only consolation is that “The
Maker doeth all things well.”
