PALLAS FAIR WATKK 1'A MINI'.
K. K. Alkire has just returned from
a triji to I lie Dallas Fair. He Bays Texa-
is drying np. The water famine at Dal-,
las is (jetting terrible. The Fair will be |
forced to shut down soon if it does not j
rain. Stock is suffering nnd it is witb I
difficulty that the people's thirst is
quenched. lie save, however, that m
small rain fell as be was leaving and |
prospects for more rainfnll is favprable. |
The scarcity of water prevails all over
Texas, however, and readied up prettv
well toward Oklahoma.

that will be wort It hundreds of dollars
t > the country in the way of finding
, irav stock. Every day someone calls
j our office asking for estray oi stolen
.-took. Almost as often farmers call
.slid notify us of loose stock around
theui. There is not a more diseourag
jnp soul ami body tiring task on earth
than ruling through the woods or over
hills in search of lost stock.
For the good of the people, we have
lecided to give space each week for re-
ports oi estray stock, either lost or
a ken up in ev.rv comnuinitv. We
.larneatly request the postmaster at
liox, Buckbead, Pecan, F.ason War-
ietta, Ktawol, Henderson, Moral, Jei-
ersou City, Noble and all other office
lear them to write us on Tuesday of
each wiek, reporting all stock estray in
uis community. They will please l'e-
nort all stock lost and all taken up, and
describe such fully. Some will be con-
densed and run that week. Stockmen
. ud farmers all through the country
will fine this invaluable means id lind-
ing their stock. No charges will be
made. It is all gratis and for good of
the people. Now let every postmaster
or any leader knowing of estray stock
wri^e us by Tuesday next week.

Jav Sherman called at our office this
week and we had an interesting inter-
view with him regarding the quaran-
tine and price of feed. He said:
"Chickasaw cattle men thought that
as soon as the quarantine was raised
we would rush over there in a burch
and buy their cattle at their own
prices. They accordingly raised their
prices beyond reason. Ihornton, Gree-
inore, myself and others went south
and supplied ourselves. They have
now come down to reasonable terms
|"bere are many ticky cattle o\ei tooie,
hut there are more ticky cattle on this
side. Parties buying cattle in the
Chickasaw Nation can catch a few of
the worst ones, curry them otf' and get
the whole bunch passed easilv. 1 here
will be a number of cattle brought here
this winter and corn will bo worth JO

The situation in the l'lansvaal.where

••rowing quite setieus. W e hove been
watching the dailies all week to get an
aitide that would describe theaflairs
explicitly, but there is little to them
but big nanus of towns that nobody
but an African can understand. Suf-
fice it to say that the war is o and
battles aie being fought. The natives

Otis has received messages purporting
to come from the insurgent Gen. Fio
Pillar t.Sering to sell ottt his army

uf the Ameiicans. Although be is not

in-; intrinsically improbable.

MARTIN COLBEKT DEAD,
K very body within a radius of a hun-
dred miles knew Martin Colbert. He
at Gueda Springs. Kan , Monday, and
his remains were shipped home for
burial Tuesday. We did not learn the
immediate cause of Lis death, bnt it
was doubtlessly led on by exeeisiye
and prolonged intemperance. Martin
Colbert was one of tbe wealthiest cat-
tle men in the Chickasaw nation and
leaves perhaps $75,000 worth of chat-
