Judge Thomas, of the Indian court,
was visited by a committee of citizens
of Tahlequah who wanted to get n jail

other things tlic judge said to them:
“1 want to tell you ut the outset that
there van be nothing stable or perma-
nent in regard to tlic federal jurisdic-
tion in this country until the question
of ludiun government is settled, and as
sure as the sun rises and sets u change
from the tribal governments in the In-
dian territory in inevitable. Nothing
can impede the progress of the events
which are leading to this end.
Chief Mayers has given notice to

says: “Tiie only timber that can be
lawfully sold or shipped is down wal-
uut or walnut timber cut for tiie pur-
pose of placing the land in cultivation,
such timber cut being without u law-
ful enclosure. You ure hereby direct-
ed to seize and hold all timber not au-
thorized by law to be sold or shipped
to a non-citizen that you may have
reason to believe is being prepared for
shipment and report the same with
full statement of facts connected there-
with to this office for further instruc-
tions. Should any non-citizen unlaw-
fully cut or remove timlier from tiie
public domain, you will report him to
the nearest United Stutes commission-
er, furnishing the name of witnesses,
for criminal prosecution."

It lias been found necessary to in-
crease the fittings of two of the labora-
tories at the agricultural college to ac-
commodate t lie increased number of
students in the higher classes who arc
trained to do accurate scientific work
along the linen which they have chosen.
The graduates of the college arc all
profitably employed: two are assistants
and post-graduate students in well
known eastern colleges, and several
others are engaged in teaching. The
sitn ami direction of growth of the
college continues to be towards a thor-
oughly modern scientific education—
one that produces workers rather than
theorists: men who can do things rath-
er than talk about them.
Tiie Creek warrants representing the
outstanding indebtedness of tiie Creek
nation lias been footed up and amounts
to 8352,000. The appropriation made
by the United States government to
meet this indebtedness amounts to
8333.000. The Creek nation bus its
treasury not otherwise appropriated an
amount sufficient to supplement the
government appropriation and to dis-
charge the entire indebtedness repre-
sented by warrants. This, however,
could not be done without the authori-
ty of tiie Creek council, if some such
arrangement cannot bo made the pro-
babilities are Hint the warrants will
have to be paid pro rata, out of the

ing crew worked all night repairing tiie
structure. Timely discovery prevent-
ed the total destruction of the bridge.

to open the express safe nnd all tiie

Oklahoma contains no idlers this
year. There is more work to do at the
present time rig lit in the cottou fields
where better wages arc psid than ever
before known. A good cotton-picker
can make from two to three dollars a
day and some go belter than that.
Many cotton-growers in Oklahoma
would be glad to get more pickers in
order to properly care for their crop
before the first frosts which generally
put in appearance about the 15th of
October or very soon thereafter. Hut
the crop will not be slighted or dama-
ged this year as every caution is taken
to prevent it.
Special Agent George Carmichael, of
the interior department, is making an
effort to secure tiie payment of taxes
assessed for 18U7 in Greer county. Tito
question is causing much discussion by
tireer county taxpayers. Greer county
was taken from Texas and given to
Oklahoma in March, 1800. When the
Oklahoma taxes were assessed tiie for-
mer Texans found themselves asked
to pay about double what they had
paid to Texas. Many declared at once
8everal months ago, the Japanese
Tea Guild seut to this country a special
commission, composed of Mr. 8. Mit-
sutiashl, president of Shizuoka Prefec-
tural Assembly, and Mr. J. Ohara.mem-
ber of Japanese parliament, to investi-
gate the condition of the Japanese tea
trade in the United States and Canada,
and to co-operate with Mr. T. Furuya
and Mr. T. Mlzutany, the American
representatives of the Japanese Tea
Guild, in giving publicity to the merits
of Japanese teas and the method of
preparing them for drinking which
would insure the best results.
Mr. Furuya and Mr. Mizutany are
planning to open tea bazars in many of
the principal cities in the United
States and Canada, where ladies can
enjoy a cup of fine Japanese tea made
by experts, and at the same time re-
ceive instructions which will enable
them to make it equally well at home.
More than half the tea consumed in
the United States and Canada is of
Japanese growth, yet, the majority of
Americans apparently do not under-
stand how to prepnre it so as to de-
velop the delicious qualities which It
contains. It is believed by these gen-
tlemen that when Americans aro In
possession of the secret of making good
tea, the consumption in this country
will fully equal that of Europe In pro-
portion. The Japanese government
has appropriated a large fund to aid
the Japanese tea growers and tea mer-
chants in prosecuting this educational
work, and it is hoped that American
ladles will be apt students. The main
bureau of the Japanese Tea Guild has
issued an official recipe for m iking Jap-
anese tea, the translation of which is
First—Use a small.dry and thorough-
ly clean porcelain teapot.
Second—Put in one teaspoonful of
tea leaves for each cup of tea desired.
Third—When using Japanese teas,
pour on the required quantity of fresh
boiled water, and let stand with closed
lid from 2 to 3 minutes. Never boil
the leaves. In order to retain the nat-
ural flavor, Japanese tea leaves should
be kept in tight can or jar, free from
Note.—To thoroughly enjoy the nat-
ural, delicate, aud sweet flavor of Jap-
anese teas, neither sugar nor cream
should be used.
