Jumped up from the tall grass Juat as
one of the party was about to take a
"hot at a covey of quail. The hunter,
knowing that he could get many more
shots at quail, took advantage of the
opportunity and blaxed away at the
wolf, sending him spinning around In
good shape, with a load of shot In his
hip. The animal was killed with the
second shot.
The hunters re|s>rt plenty of game In
the Deep Fork bottoms. On account of
the recent high waters, there are many

John Kilgore, of Anadarko, Passed
Through'Tulsa an Way to
Monts No, Ark.
John Kilgore of Anadarko, Okla..
passed through Tulsa last night and,
by chance, mrt several of his old time
friends and ecqualntances. with whom
he has enjoyed many days sport In the
field Mr. Kilgore |* a great dog fan-
cier. He is going to Monte Ne, Ark .
where he has a nunioer of hounds In
the annual chases at this time. Mr.
Kilgore Is one of the Itest known

Msdsm Fuat Run Thraugh Pigaa Into
Homes in That City for tho First
Tima Last Sunday.
On h'unday last, the city of Bristow
enjoyed Its first natural gas for do-
mestic purposes. The gas Is being
furnished from wells about three miles
smith of Rristuw Htfretofore, the cltl-
sens of the enterprising little town,
were compelled to use coal and wood
for fuel.
Now that prosperity Is returning In
great chunks the question of new
railroads in and out of Tulsa natur-
ally arises. Had it not been for the
panic It ia probable that Tulsa would
have had at least three new roads
before this. In 1906 a little over three
years ago charters were Issued for the
construction of three of these rail-
roads Since then surveys have been
made for at least three more.
One of the rallronds holding a char-
ter with part of Its line under con-
tract is the Kansas City, Tulsa and
Southwestern, which is planned to run
from Kansas City to Wichita Falls.
Texas While this line would parallel
mads now operating in this section
it would give Tulsa connection with
towns not on the line of these other
Direct connection between Tulsa and
the gulf coast will be afforded when
the Texas. Tulsa and Gulf Line Is com.
pleted. Tulsa and Matagorda are the
proposed termlnnls of this line.
Another greatly needed line Is the
Tulsa, Turnervllle and Texas, which
will give Tulsa direct connection with
Shawnee and the northwestern cor-
ner of the state. This proposed road
Is one of the three holding a charter.
It will be noticed that In each of
these three proposed railroads Tulsa
seems to be destined to be the center
of activity. Their successful and early
completion would give Tulsa great rail-
road shops in which thousands of men
would be employed and Increase the
Importance and population of the city
many times. W 1th Increased business
activity every where apparent It seems
as if the country is about to enter up-
on an era of prosperity unknown tie-
fore and Tulsans have reason to look
for greater things The eastern por-
tion of the new state needs more rail-
roads and It is self-evident that no
roads will go through this section that
do not include the recognised center of
the oil and gas Industry among the
cities on their route.

fluence upon the production of oil In
the Oklahoma territory.
Incidentally, Frank B. Kellogg, coun-
«e| for the government, made a re-
newed attempt, through the two chief
witnesses of the day, to find out some-
thing about the relatione, If any, be-
tween T. N. Rarnsdall, of Pittsburg,
and the Standard Oil company. No
Information regarding "the mysteriOEfs
Mr, Barnsdall." as Kellogg character-
tied him, was drawn from either wlt-
Keiiogg's questioning regard!^
Barnsdall, who la a large
dealer, began during the

he knebr that BaAisdall had hamwad

by Litchfield, the witness deoluriw he
had never heard of dlscrlmlnhtloua ea
the part of the Prairie Company, and
that he for one, has been satisfied with
the quota of oil the company has tak-
en from him.
Edward Barnes was even more em-
phatic In hls praise of the Oklahoma
