first white child born in the Creek na-

(Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Williams) on the
first 89-mile-a-day passe/iger train. They
made a dash of about 89 rods and pitch-
ed the second tent in Purcell in 89 min-
utes on the same location of their pres-
sent home. Her mother was gifted with
beautiful locks of hair and the Indians
tried to buy it 89 times, offering 89 hides
in '89. The attractions that have made
for her a host of friends today were in
evidence and 89 Indians insisted on car-
rying her in their packs on their bock 89
times in '89.

the wonderful experience of many of the
'89-ers that have registered so far this
We are going to give you one by Mrs.
I'. C. Lessly.
The 160 acres five miles northeast of
Xorman the Lessly family moved on in
'89 is still owned by Mr. Lessly and is
a part of his home farm.
Mrs. Lessly gives an interesting nar-
rative of their experience in '89.
In substance it runs something like
this: "Paul and myself with our son got
possession of 160 acres of our farm in '89
by getting the party that had filed on the
land to relinquish and we moved on it,
and lo and behold we didn't have 89c. I
says to Paul, 'You keep the boy and sit
steady in the boat for 89 hours and I
will take the 89c and go 89 miles to
Texas and call on Dad, 89 years old.' -I
made the trip and I was so glad to see
the home folks that I talked at the rate of
89 words in 89 seconds and when I trav-
eled back the 89 miles I had 89 dollars.
Se we paid the required 8 or 9 dollars
for possession of the land and within 89
hours we came to Xorman and deposited
the rest of our 89 dollars in a bank
right over yonder about 89 steps. (Point-
ing to the corner of Main and Peters
where the new bank building is being
erected) and the bank went broke and
left us without 89c in '89."
Come Saturday morning and hear
some of the '89-ers tell of some of their
experiences, in '89 from the platform in
front of the store.
'8-er music Friday and Saturday from
9 to 12.
If you are an '89?er be sure and reg-
ister this week. This registration as
shown on our book, giving ages, pres-
ent address and the occupation in "89
with other interesting history, will be
kept as a record.
The Flag given to the oldest '89-er
registering will be awarded at six o'clock
Owing to the unavoidable disappoint-
ment we are compelled to omit the bar-
becue planned for the '89-ers, but. mixed
with our special 8'<c Sale prices will be
entertainment equally worth while.
