Walker, John J. McCook and J. C.Wil-
son of the Atchison-Frlisco arrived in
St. Louis a few days ago and soon there-
after had filed a petition in the federal
court for authority to annul or disaffirm
contracts with certain leased lines. On
this subject the Globe-Deuiocrat says:
In the case of the parent company—
the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe and
the Frisco—a petition was filed by the
receivers for authority to annul the
contracts with the Atlantic and Pacific,
which have been a heavy burden upon
the Atchison and the Frisco, and have
been quite a factor in the insolvency of
those companies. In January, 1HH0,
the Frisco was the owner of a majority
of the stock of the Atlantic and Pacific,
which at that time owned the line ex-
tending to Vinita, I. T., and was au-
thorized bv act of congress to construct
a line from Vinita to the Pacific coast.
In July, 1888, the Atchison and the
Frisco entered into the contract by
which the Atchison acquired ownership
of one-half the capital stuck of ,the At-
lantic and Pacific, owned by the Y risen.
The Atlantic and Pacific line extends
from Albuquerque, N. M., to Mohave,
Cal., and the gap from Sapulpa to Al-
buquerque has nevStbeen filled in.

not be 10 per cent less cattle fed than
there were last season. I recently made
an extended trip through Texas from
Gainesville to Houston, and am of the
..pinion there will be as many, if not
more, cattle fed in that state than last
year. A good many of tho big fellows
will not feed as many cattle as last sea-
son, while Oil the other hand soinc of
the small fellows will feed twice as
many as in previous years. Cotton
meal is-selling at $12, while a year ago
it sold at $18, $19 and $20. The hulls
can be bought at $2 to $2.50 against $4
to $<> last year. These reduced prices
have caused a (great many parties to
feed cattle, who otherwise would not
have done so. 1 talked with a great
many cattlemen on my recent visit to
Texas and learned from them that the
biggest shipments to market would be
in March and April."

A gentleman in a neighboring city
desires to establish a steam laundry in
Norman, if he can get a suitable room,
so he writes Chief Tackett. We have
looked around, and have found a room,
and no doubt the laundry will be es-

for Norman, for as it is now most of our
laundry goes to Wichita,
About 9:00 o'clock last Wednesday
night the neighbors in the vicinity of
Dr. Hudson's heard the report of a pis-
tol shot, and on going to Mr. Hudson's
house found that Mrs. Hudson had shot
herself just above the knee with a re-
volver. She says she was alone and
thought she heard some one trying to
get into the house. She arose from her
bed and took a revolver and proceeded
to investigate, after which she laid the
weapon in her lap, and in taking hold
of the gun to let the hammer down she
touched the trigger, and the result was
as above stated. The doctor was sum-
moned and dressed the wound and Mrs.
Hudson is getting along as nicely as
could be expected under the circum-
stances. The wound is very painful
but not necessarily dangerous.
