Nt. I.oiiIn, OUIhIiu • a A Southern,
A meeting of the directors of the St.
Louis Oklahoma & Southern railroad
was held in this city last Saturday, at
which some very important business
was transacted. Hon. John Brown
President of the Seminole nation was
elected Vice President of the road. Mr.
Brown is probably one of the wealthiest
and largest shippers in the Southwest
and his connection with the road will
have great weight. Mr. Trudgeon, one
of the heaviest property owners in Pur-
cell, was also elected director. Arrange-
ments were made for the preliminary
survey which will bo commenced in a
few days. This road ns projected will
run through the finest portion of Okla-
homa mid will be a big card for the
towns securing it. The people of St.
Louis are very anxious to have it
built, and are willing to help to their
fullest extent.—Shawnee Quill.

You can now buy good seed

tion. You have one of the best
coutries in the United States for
growing small-grain. Then why
not take advantage of thia great
opportunity to do well

After a long, long wait, our theatre- j
goers will have a chance to witness that

to present it to liiB patrons Nov. 20th
and it will no doubt attract a big audi-
ence. It ran all of last winter in N. Y„
at the Academy of Music, and press and
public voted that it was the grandest
production as well as the most novel
ever seen in New York.
The scenery surpasses all former ef-
forts, and the ballets are particularly
poetic and entrancing. The dramatic
portion is exceedingly strong, and the
vast amount of scenery and the large
number of people carried insures a
splendid production. Again Manager
Brown shows his sagacity in booking
this superb attraction.

Croup is a terror to young mothers,
and to post them concerning the cause,
first symptoms and treatment is the
object" of this Item. The origin of
croup 1b a common cold. Children who
are subject to it take cold very easily,
and croup is almost sure to follow. The
first symptom is hoarsness; this is soon
followed by a peculiar rougli cough,
which is easily recognised, and will
never be forgotten by one who haB
heard it. The time to act is when the
child first becomes hoarse. If Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy is freely given
all tendency to croup will soon disap-
pear. Even after the croupy cough has
developed it will prevent the attack.

Hon. Sidney Clarke, chairman oi thoj
executive committee of the Statehood)
committee, is considering the advisa-
bility of calling a convention at Shaw-
nee for December 4, as there seems to be
a general desire among the friends of
the movement that a Statehood conven-
tion should be held in the eastorn part
of the torritory. The Shawnee people
are very hospitable, and dellgales to
such a convention would be welcomed
with open arms, and tho meeting would
be one of the most notable ever held in
the territory. It will probably to called
for that date.—Oklahoman.
