The week that bus just passed since
the last issue of the Lkaoer has been
full of stirring events, and will be long
remembered by those who Happened to
be in town during the time those things
First came the arrest last Saturday of
Dr. G. P. Johnston, charged with com
mitting abortion. We were not present
at the examining triai, which took place
before Judge Hardwick. The doctor
was placed under (5,000 bond, which he
readily gave. Some of his enemies are
at the bottom of the prosecution and
formation of the charge.
Next came a row in the Catholic
church between some of the prominent
members, and a squabble in the Bap-
tist church about the calling of a preach-
er to preside over the little flock at this
Then came the marriage Sunday
evening of two of Lexington's best
known young people, Henry Gregg and
Miss Etta Frigon.
Next on the calender was the report
that Bill Carr had bid his wife good-bye
and left for purls unknown. Saying
that the evidence was too strong against
him to stand the trial. His friends and
bondsmen are loth to believe that Carr
has done such an ungentleinanly trick,
but eireumstaneial evidence points very
strong to the truth of the rumor, for it
is nothing more than a rumor.
All of this was followed by floods and
floods of rain and another wedding
Wednesday night at this place and a
bold jail delivery at Norman.
Oh, Lordy! Lordy! When will it all
end? When will peace, and quiet, and
prosperity, and good will reign supreme
again in the Land of the Fair God?
Last Sunday afternoon, at the resi-
lence of the groom's father in this vil-
lage, Miss Etta Frigon and Mr. Henry
Gregg were united m marriage by J. E.
Basham. Only a few friend's and rela-
tives were present at the ceremony.
There were no "fixins" or bridal tour
connected with the affair—simply the
joining together of two loving hearts.
We us is usual in connection with such
happenings, wish the young people
much joy in wedded life. Mr. and Mrs.
Gregg will remain here, where the
groom is employed, for the time being.
Mrs. Robert Abernathy, wife of the
well known Racket store man, arrived

Members of the School Board Get Gay
The local school board held a meet-
ing Mondav night and one of those old-
time monkey and parrot seances fol-
lowed. Four of the members got on
their muscle during the discussion of
the sale of school bonds, and one mem-
ber went after another with a knife. It
was great fun for the spectators but
disgraceful to the city schools.
The board sold $11,000 of school
bonds at W5 cents to M. L.Turner. The
total attendance io our schools is 1.2MI,
composed of 587 boys and 702 girls. Thi

Many stories have been written of tlu
little babe, scarcely able to toddle, who
strayed away from home, and of the
entire surrounding country having been
searched before the wanderer was
found; but it is not often that a verifi-
cation of this popular fiction is met
with in everyday life. However, the
story of the lost child was most j' < i!.|v
brought to mind here lust Mou
when the three-year-old boy of Mr.
Bradslutw, who lives about a mile and
a half east <>f town, took a notion to go
out into the world and see all that it
At noon the child was missed, and
careful search of the farm premises
failed to disclose its whereabouts. As
hour after hour passed, and no tidings
came of the lost one, the parents wore
almost distracted. The alarm was
given; the neighboring farmers and
many of ouj citizens learned of the lost
child, and soon a hundred men were
traversing the country in search of the
adventurous little one.
It was not until abut 6;30 o'clock in
the elening that the uthful wanderer
was found. He was discovered on the
Cut ter farm, about a mile from home,
by one of mr Carter's sons, and seemed
all unaware of the anxiety he had
cuus'jd or the danger to which he had
Of course, there was much rejoising
in the Bradshw husehold when the lit-
tle wanderer wus once more placed, un-
harmed, in the mother's loving arms.
Evrrybody felt good over the result and
we arc glad to know that all ended so
happily. Many u time will those par-
ents and that boy have to tell how he
was "lost iu a cornfield," ami how the
country was aroused to find him.

Tuskahoma, I. T., Nov. 5.—Nothing
but sensation huve been sprung around
tho Choctaw capital to-day.
To begin with, the board of educa-
tion declared every academy and sem-
inary in the nation vacant. This leaves
seven without superintendents. The
cause of the ruling is that the con-
tracts with the nation had not been
signed by the different superintendents
Some of tho old ones will be reappoint-
ed, but the majority will be let out. The
election of new superintendents will
taKe place next week.
On the heels of the action of the
board of education Judge Fulsom,
president of the senate, introduced into
the senate the following bill, which
passed with only one dissenting vote,
that of Joe Everidge:
"Be it enacted by the general council
of the Choctaw nation assembled that

or shall attempt to convey any part or
parcel of the Choctaw land to a 11011-
itiy.cn or citizens, or attempt to betray
said laud and Choctaw country into the
bunds of u foreign power.
Be it futher enacted that any person
or persons violating this first section
shall be prosecuted by the circuit court
having jurisdiction, and proven
uilty of treason by two or more wit-
esses shall be punished by confine-
ment in jail for not less than six nor
more than twelve months and fined
not less than £1000 nov more than $10,
000 at the discretion of the court.
Be it further enacted that if any
person or persons violating this act for
the second time he or she shall be ar-
rested, sentenced and executed until
"Be it farther enacted that any act
or part of act coining in conflict with
this act is hereby repealed, and that
