An Edenic spot in| the Land of the Fair God-
Where Prosperity Rewards the Frugal
EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS.

the County this Year, from all Sources.
Population 26,988. ENID, the Flour-

The lay of the land c i ) > isin^z Garfield county, Oklahoma Territory
is rolling prairie; ii is weL \ i lered by hundreds of creeks fed by thous-
ands of springs, giving fo as wholesome water as ever flowed from
mother earth. The soil is lie most fertile in the world, as a trip to
the country during any sea son ol the year will prove to the satisfitctioi
of anyone. Counting the school land, which is all under cultivation or
being used for pasturing stock; there are 4,82o farms, ef 100 acres each, in
this county. There is no waste land, every acre lias beeu hmnesteaded
The surface, or genejal lay of the country is as handsome a." one can
oonceive. The labor of farming here is trifling compared with je labor
necessary in the country ast of the Mississippi river; no stir' :a rocks
disturb the smooth gliding of the plow; no stump puller is necessarj
and grebbing is never done here.
Price of Land.
' Land that lias been patented is valubd, to a certain extent, on the
distance it lays from the city of Enid, from 4(15 to fcluO per acre.
Outside of the almost continuous soaring of the Gulf current of winds,
the climate of Garfield county is very pleasing indeed, The winters are
almost always mild and the summers a little warm, yet quite pleasant,
nights quite cool and invigorating. A glance a' a map (if the United
States will readily show you that Oklahoma is a happy medium between
the cold frigid north and the hot torrid south, hence, this country is not
pestered with the disease plagues of the north nor south. The yellow
fever of tne south or the scarlet fever of the earth never trouble the peo-
ple of Oklahoma.
The population of the county is 26,988, having gained nearly 0,000
since July 1st, 1807. The present prosperity of the county will undoubt-
edly raise the population to 3o,ooo before tlie end of this year. Ninety-
eight per cent of the people are white, and a hard working, rustiing class,
tempered by misfortunes in ether parts of the country. Many who carat
here* in destitute circumstances find themselves in possession of valuable
lands and comfortable homes and quite a few have accumulated flompe
The public school system of the country is retarded some 1^ 13 small
district system adopted by the first territorial legislature,yet guoa schools
abound in all parts of the county, and the territory provides a first class
University, two Normal colleges and an Agricultural college.
The WAVE gleans the following statistics from the county assessor's
returns to the county clerk:
There are 091,2oo acres of land in the county all told, abont 400,001
acres are under fence, the ballance is uot under fence as the laws in re
gard to stock running loose protect the growing crops of the farmers
There are 6,83o families in the county. Estimated cash value of the land
and improvements in the county is $14,750,453. Value of implements
and machinery qoo'093. Ruggies, and wagons 1:66,551). ^ alne of bind
ing twine sold this year 3o,8oo; n 11 Tiber of pounds sold 4oo,ooo. Apple
trees growing 275,480. Pear trees 11,600. Peach trees 65o,ooo. Apricots
19,ooo Plum trees 86,000. Grapes loo,893.
Live Stock—O11 March 1, last,16,056 horses, 3,500 mules, 7,780
milch cows, 38,618 cattle, 80,400 hogs. Estimated value of all live stock
sold from March 1st, 1901 to March 1, 1902 $800,000.
Agricultural Statistics—Number ol acres of wheat harvested this
year 225,loo acres, estimated yield 5,508,000 bushels; estimated value at
present prices ^$8,800,000. There ivas 86,846 acres of com out and
growing nicely, which will be worth if all goes well $665,9oo. Oats har
vested 80,185 acres. Castor beans 31,328 acres. Cotton 3,171 acres re
spectively; estimated value J30o,ooo. Frjin June 30, 19ol to the same
date 19o2 the value of all classe? of poultry, eggs, butter, cheese, vegeta-
bles, native fruit and stove wood marketed in Enid and neighboring vil
lages amounted to *64o, 700. At least *35o, 000 worth of hay, flaxseed,
peanuts, sweet potatoes, broom corn, kaflir corn, and other odd crops are
sold out of this county annually.
It is safe to say that the products of this county marketed within the
last year brought very nearly $8,000,000.
Owing to this country being new a monstrous building boom has been
going on for three years. The various lumber yards of the city of Enid a d
ether yards in the county sold 1806 car loads of lumber since Jan. 1, 19ol.
THE CITY OF ENID.
Near the center of this rioli and productive county is the Uity of Enid,
the central trading point for at least 30,000 people, living in Garfield
Grant, Wood, Woodward, KingBsher, and Blaine counties. T'. is now a
city o! 8,33o people, all doing well. In the last year new brie'" blocks
have sprung up like magic, and city realestate has been steadi'v advan-
cing in prico for four years, doubling and thribiling in vale? The
city is fast assuming a metropolitan appearance and in . He will
reach a population of at least 15,000. There are excellent open
ings here f r the right people to go into most any kind of 1
manufacturing business. Nearly all the churches have good congre-
gations here.^ A truthful write up like this may surprise some who lierust
these lines, but a visit to this county would surprise you still more. Enid
has become the most important railroad center of the territory. Six lines
•f railr ads rtfn in and out of the cny and four more are building in. Enid
has bee me a leading candidate for the permanent state capital. For fur-
