WILLIAMS 8 GILLESPIE
+ Rock Island
W. R. Light, formerly agent and
also cashier at this station, has ac-
cepted a lucrative position in Little
Rock, and will enter upon the duties
of his new position about June 1st.
J. H. Doughty, formerly located
here in the Traffic department, has
gone to St. Louis and expects to lo-
cate there. Mr. Dayey, his clerk,
has secured a position as ticket seller
in the Union station at St. Louis.-
Jack Converse, the only reliable
Jack, is now temporarily located
at Little R"ck and is gradually work-
ing his way homeward towards Phila-
delphia. Just what mode of trayel
lie uses we are unable to say, but some
of his friends are mean enough to in-
timate that he went thd| “box car
The Methodist folks have erected a
temporary tabernacle and are holding
a series of revival meetings which are
largely attended and very much in
terest manifested. It is a regular
old-time Methodist revival, with good
music and song service and everybody
happy. Let the good work go on. and
we hope much good will result.
“The Twins,” the new residences
of Messrs. Ostrander and Holmes,
located in the west end, are hand-
some structures and add very much to
the resident portion of the city.
These two young gentlemen are
progressive, up-to-date business men,
and believe in doing about right, and
their new homes are an ornament to
our fair city.
Mayor Kruse is one of the youngest,
one of the best looking and one of the
most aggessive up-to-date mayors in
in fair Oklahoma. At the head of
our affairs Geary has the right man
in the right plac$ and you can de-
pend upon it that our mayor will do
much good, and will work for the best
I interests of our town. His heart is
! in his work and he believes in Geary
fully and completely. ,
During the game of ball Tuesday
afternoon between the “singles” and
“doubles” the railroad boys locked up
shop and were out in force. The
“rooter” of the crowd was Ed Fogle-
man, who made more noise than a
brass band. Ed. is a professional
player, having followed the business
several seasons. To our mind De-
waide was a “Cracker Jack, wit i
Clarence Houk and Shorty Allen good
Last week we spent several days
down in the new country, seven
miles west of Apache, -at the home of
Henry L- Gilbreath, well and favor-
ably known here. This gentleman
has one of the choicest claims to be
found. It cost him $1,000. The
prices of claims in this country range
from $300 to $1,000. About fifteen
miles southwest of Apache are lo-
cated the Wichita mountains, which
abound with minerals and some gold
has been found; and miners are
flocking into the country. Oil has
also been found in the hills and the
country is fast settling up with a
good class of men.
The Choctaw Northern is a thing
of the past, having died in its infancy,
absorbed by its parent, the Choctaw,
Okla. & Gulf, preparatory to turning
over the entire system to the Rock
Island. Just when the transfer of
the property will occur is a matter of
speculation—anywhere from 30 to 90
days before the Rock Island will be
in absolute control. The citizens of
Geary are to be congratulated upon
the change as it throws them into ope
of the greatest railroad systems in
this country and one of the most
popular with the general public.
Through and perfect train service
will be established, and in all prob-
ability this will be a diyision point
and the Rock Island will help to
make our fair city one of the best
towns in western Oklahoma.

through the Choctaw Headlights. We
have no apology to make for our news,
as we beleived in Geary and worked
for its best interests. This week we
bid you adieu. Had the-Choctaw sys-
tem not been-purchased by the-Rock Is-
land, we would have been agent for
the Rock Island at this station but
since the arrangement has been
changed, there will be but one agency
and Mr. Berkicht will remain. We
have been associated with this gentle-
man some time and know him to be a
perfect gentleman, nicely located
with his estimable family and we be-
speak for him the success he deserves
and the good will and partonage of
ihe public. We thank the public for
their kind indulgence through the
columns of this paper and to our
friends who have stood by us. We be
leive Geary has a bright future, and
a town is naturally what the business
men make it, and we are proud of the
men that are hustling for Geary and
we have faith in the Rock Island
officials that they will help to build
up and make our fair citXj
on their system. J. E- Hausklns.
