Chandler Shipping: Fruit.
Since the tenth of J une over
one thousand baskets of peaches
have been shipped from Chan-
dler to points in Kansas,
Missouri and Arkansas. This
fact is not noteworthy from the
large quantities shipped so much
as from the fact that a market
for the fruit raised in this county
has been established and our
farmers need no longer let their
fruit go to waste for want of an
opportunity to sell it at a reason-
able price. It is also important
to know that the shipments of
peaches which have been made
recently to nearly a hundred
different towns have fully estab-
lished the quality of ourproducts
in this line as being equal to the
best, and hundreds of letters of
inquiry are being received by
Messrs. McWethy and Wey-
mouth from those who have seen
the fruit. The peach shipping
season is now practically over,
but the grapes will soon begin
to come in, and here is where
Lincoln county does excel, both
as to quantity and quality. The
crop this year will undoubtedly
be a large one, and it should all
be utilized. Only the best fruit
shouid be brought in for ship-
ment. Baskets can be had at
the depot or at P. A. McWethy's
for packing. Plums and other
kindsof fruit can also be handled.
It is not expected that this year's
business will amount to anything
more than a starter, but when it
is understood in the best mar
kets that we can put the finest
quality of fruit on the market a
little earlier than any other
locality, there will be no enu to
the demand for our product.
Among the points to which large
shipments have been made are
St. Louis, Eureka Sprinsrs
Springfield, and Joplin.

J. C. Pringey Home.
J. C. Pringey returned Mon-
day noon from the national re-
publican convention at Philadel-
phia. His injuries are not so
serious as at first reported, but
it is a wonder how Mr. Pringey
escaped with his life from the
accident in which he was one of
the victims. He had been at-
tending a meeting of thecommit-
tee on credentials on the tenth
fioor of the great Walton hotel,
and being somewhat fatigued he
concluded to go to his room. He
took the elevator at the tenth
floor, and it had gone but a little
distance when one of the cables
broke and the elevator with its
six passengers, fell seven stories.
Mr. Pringey was the least hurt
of t he six persons in the elevator,
he having had the presence of
mind to stand on.tiptoe when t he
elevator struck the floor, while
the others were crouching on the
bottom of the elevator. Mr.
Pringey did not go to the hos-
pital, but was taken care of at
the Oklahoma headquarters. The
insurance company which had
insured the elevator promptly
settled all claims for damages
and saw that the injured persons
had every needed assistance.
Mr. Pringey stood the trip home
remarkably well and hopes to be
able to get around before a great
while. The most serious injury
was to the left ankle, where the
ligaments are torn loose from the
bones. He is very cheerful, and
philosophically recognizes that he
is fortunate to have fared no
worse under the circumstances.
He enjoyed the convention im-
mensely, and his enthusiasm over
the ticket and platform is un-

Delegate Flynn is much exer-
cised over the reports that per-
sons are entering the Kiowa and
Comanche lands. II*; says:
"Under the most favorable
conditions, the land cannot be
opened for six months, which
will throw it into another session
of congress, and if settlers in-
tending to go in there now disre-
gard the rulings of the inte.-ior
department there is great dan-
ger of new legislation being en-
acted, which will disqualify ev-
ery person who enters on these
lands before they are opened up
for settlement by proclamation
of the president. I am very anx
ious to hurry the work, but am
| fearful that this influx at the
present time on to the reserva-
tion will have a tendency to re-
tard and delay the opening."
Mr. C. G. Jones has just sold
a 480 acre farm in Lincoln county
; for $11,300.—Times-Journal.
