A Pawnee county pnprr says: Parties

criminally prosecuted if they re-marry

are granted on the payment of costs
and the decree does not go into effect
until the expiration of six months and
full settlement, of costs. Those who
have re-married without paying the
costs in their divorce case are liable to
be prosecuted for bigamy.
The third annual meeting of the Ok-

Special rates on railroads have been

put a tie on a railroad track to see
what would happen when tho train
came along. A section hand discover-
ed it and had Mister Bowlegs arrested.
He was perfectly innocent in what he
did and will be released.
There is some doubt in the territory
as to just what has become of the free
homes bill. It is now on the house
cilendar. It calls for an extra appro-
priation over that originally passed by
the house. Accordingly it will have to
pass the house again. The trouble will
be to get it off the calendar.
Lee Killian, alias Elisha Barnes, was
arrested on the 24th at Joplin, Mo.
He is the last member of the Dalton
gang, and is wanted at Coffeyville and
Guthrie, for jail breaking and robbery.
Killian was one of the seventeen pris-
oners who escaped from the federal
jail with Bill Doolin last July.
Indications show that this session of
the legislature will not be without the
usual county seat fights. Shawnee
and Tecumseh are oiling up their guns, j
throwing up breastworks and other- ;
wise arranging for a go. Both towns j
will have strong lobbies there and j
there will be a panoramic display of
cutlery and teeth.
A man at Davis, Indian Territorj',
has a scheme. He is going to take a
trip around the world. He proposes
that people who wish to receive letters
from him telling all about what he sees
send him one, two, three or four dol-
lars, just as they are able. He will
then write them letters. lie says he
will take the trip whether any one
puts up any money or not.
The papers generally are comment-
ing on Governor Ketifrow's message
and the concise manner in which he
shows up the territory's condition.
The Kansas City World says "the
proper distribution of this message
would do the territory more good than
a million letters and circulars." The
Wichita Faglo says the "message and
exhibits ^attached should be strewn all
over New England and give the be-
nighted orientals a chance to see what
Oklahoma really is." Documents of
this kind should be in the hands of the
people. The territory needs all the

Deodorize Your Furs.
The odors that cling to many of the
furs worn by women in spite of the
efforts of the furrier to eliminate
them are not always pleasant to the
olfactories of sensitive fair ones. And
yet fashion decrees that many of the
most pungent of these furs shall be
worn. Skunk fur is exceedingly popu-
lar this winter. It is now wholly de-
odorized and is extensively used under
a far more elegant title to decorato
garments, both light and dark in color.
Black lynx is now to be obtained in a
fast dye—the color does not rub off in
the least, and this, with black fox, is
ono of the most dressy and effective
of the long lustrous furs. The badger,
natural lynx and fox pelts in blue, sil-
ver and gray, with chinchilla at the
head, are among the stylish light furs.
Very dark mink is highly favored as a
decoration, and, like otter, never loses
caste. Russian sable bands and tails
and the American sable brought from
Hudson's bay are in steady demand.
Beaver is still used both plucked and
unplucked in its natural color, and also
dyed. Sealskin capes, redingotes and

A Fctchlnc Bull Gown.
This winter's dancers are a gorgeous
lot and they make a ballroom sug-
gestive of a fairyland whose dressmak-
ing elves are remarkably well up in
their business. A sample of what a
really fine ball gown means this season
is the artist's contribution here. It
was made of rose-salmon duchesse
satin, both bodice and skirt trimmed
with white mousseline de soie inser-
tions that showed a pretty floral em-
broidery in colored silks. But this
trimming was enhanced by a novel
garniture of ribbon, which the picture
explains. The back of the bodice and
the epaulets were plain satin, and the
skirt was lined with pink taffeta. Cov-
er a dancing ficor thickly with such
handsome dresses as this, and the sight
is one of beauty that should be a joy
forever. Between dances there is no
let-up in the brilliancy of the picture,
because dainty wraps that come out for
bared shoulders are fully up to the
gowns they top. Scarfs and capes for
this purpose are most elegant, and
though their delicacy makes them
seem almost useless, they ordinarily
furnish all tho protection that is d -
gired. Almst any cape becomes mors
beautifully shaped and lined, is more
than ever an ideal garment devoutly
to be desired by all women.

REGARDING PASSENCER RATES
Decision of the llllnol. Railroad ana
In the matter of the communication
of the secretary of the state grange of
Illinois dated Jan. 1.IS97, embodying a
resolution of that body adopted at its
December meeting. 18116, asking the
board of railroad and warehouse com-
missioners to reduce the passenger
rate from three (3) cents to two (2)
cents per mile, the commission is if
the opinion that to do so at this time
would be unwise and unwarranted and
would be unjust to tho railroad inter-
est of the state. While some of the
great trunk lines in Illinois might be
able to stand such a reduction, yet the
smaller roads, and those which do
almost wholly a local business, and
which are now and have been for the
last two years struggling for exist-
ence, would be most seriously affected
Such action on our part would sim-
ply increase the heavy burdens under
which they are staggering now. It la
a well-known fact to those who have
taken the trouble to investigate the
amount of passenger business done by
the railroads in Illinois during the past
two years that there has been a large
decrease in the number of passengers
carried. This is due in our judgment
not to the amount charged for such
service but to the general depression
in all lines of business, the low prices
of farm products and the unsettled
financial conditions which have had
their effect on the passenger as well
as the freight business.
And it is also a fact, as shown by the
sworn reports of the railroads of Illi-
nois that the capital invested in such
property has not paid even a fair in-
terest to the stockholder. This ques-
tion was before us when we revised
the freight schedule in 1895, and the
whole question was thoroughly con-
sidered. We did not think then and
neither do we feel now that in justice
to both the public and the railroads,
because each should stand on the same
equality before the law, this reduction
should be made at this time. If the
country was prosperous our conclu-
sions might be different.
The statistics in our office show that
for the past three years. 1894, 1895 and
1896, the average amount charged by
the railroads per passenger mile is a
fraction above two cents, although the
maximum allowed them was three
For the reasons above stated we do
not feel that this reduction should be
made at this time. We are also asked
to recommend this reduction to the
legislature. In view of our conclusion
we do not feel that it would be con-
sistent for us to do so; however, tho
legislature has the power to regulate
the maximum rate which can be
charged for passenger service and we
leave the matter to their wisdom.

A Very Popular Calendar*
Few people in these busy days are willing:
to live without a calendar to mark the pass-
ing of time. This fart, no doubt, accounts
for the calendars of all kinds, colors, shapes
and sizes which flood tho mails at this
season. Among them all the one that best
suits us is tho one issued by N. \V. Aykh Sl
Son, the "Keeping Everlastingly At It"
Newspaper Advertising Agents of Philadel-
phia. We have just received our new copy
and are fixed for 18'J7. It is not difficult ta
see why this calendar is so great a favorite.
The figures on it are larpeenough to be read
across a room; its handsome appearance
makes it worthy of a place in the best fur-
nished office or library, while it is business-
like all the way through. The publishers
state that the demand for this calendar has
always exceeded the supply. This led them
years ago to place upon it a nominal price—
25 cents, on receipt of which it is sent, post-
paid and securely packed, to any address.

Set Out Tree® in the Spring.
Spring is a better time to set trees
than fall, because, at that season, trees
are beginning to grow, and will, there-
fore. be in a condition to respond more
readily to treatment, while In fall they
are unlikely to establish themselves
before cold weather sets in. Preserve
the roots to the fullest possible ex-
tent, and do not disturb the tree until
after it has ripened and has shed its
foliage. If tie roots are cut away, as
they almost invariably are in spring
planting, be sure to cut back the top
proportionately. —Eben E. Rexford in
