The county board of the commis-
sion on the insane met Inst Friday
night to pass upon the insanity of
Jack Mitchell and to make proper
disposition of liim.
An investigation in an insanity case
cannot but lie sail to a reflective
mind, yet in the case of Jack, the in-
vestigation nt many points was comi-
cal in the oxtreme. His ready re-
plies, his shrewd answers, hi*'flash-
ing wit and quaint humor aided by
expressive gestures, upset the grav-
ity of the board, time and again. Jack
was, for him, quietly dressed. His
trousers were new aiid creased; his
shirt was a pink striped percale, fas-
tened at the front by a lady's brooch;
his boots were evidently' but lately
purchased and were of "the cowboy
variety with very high heels; aii
empty" cartridge belt was fastened
around his waist and his coat was a
dark blue sack, which well became
the old soldier and pensioner.
Strangely gotten-up, surely, but he
was decent in appearance for the
tirst time since tiie local man had
known him. In giving an account of
himself he talked of his lots, his
houses and other properties, which
he said he owned, lie dropped into
pontics. He announced himself the
rightful mayor of tlie city of Perry
and declared his determination to yet
remove "that Hrogan gang," as'he
Two witnesses only were examined
and Jack unwittingly did the rest. It
is impossible to give* his talk in full,
but some of his bright remarks are
given "If you steal a hat you may
be fined £50, but if you steal *50,
you can pay the judge ten per
cent, and he'll turn you loose."
At one time, thoroughly disgusted
both with the proceedings and
his inquisitors, he said: "Yob, you are
all prettv much sooners, but, honest-
ly, you have'nt sense enough to be
crazy." Asked if he was not gener-
ally looked upon as crazy, he said.
"Perhaps a little, judge"; but you
never attended the city council meet-
ing, did you?" Again he said, "Yes,
maybe I am a little off, but like the
washwoman, I'll try to get on again."
Oil another occasion ne remarked,
"Honestly, judge, I sometimes think
I need a guardian; I notice when
I've got a dollar, everyone tries to get
it and its mighty hard to hold on to
it." In reply to a question, he stated
that as a pensioner he "was in receipt
of 851 quarterly," and to the next
question said, "No, judge, my pen-
sion aint in any danger unless Cleve-
land gets worse."
At times he would argue a law point
with ability, and in so doing would
stand, his body thrown a little for-
ward and resting the tips of his tin.
gi-rs on the table separating him from
Judge Edwards, the chairman of the
board. As counteracting the effect of
testimony which a witness bad just
given he said, "Judge, go to the door
with that witness and ask him how far
it is to the nearest corner and he cant
tell you; he don't know anything;
what'is such testimony worth?"
Jack Mitchell, as a result of the in-
vestigation was adjudged insane and
ordered to be taken in tho morning to
Jacksonville, Illinois. During the
night, however, he managed to dodge
the watcher who had been designated
to care for him and disappeared in
the darkness. He was overhauled at
Orlando and started with a deputy for
Jacksonville yesterday morning-a
day or two later than he should have

THE J. H. WOLFE Cafe.
It is said by our most prominent people that it is the BEST CAFE in the TER-
RITORY of OKLAHOMA. There is not a Steak, Fish or oyster which go on the
tables at this Cafe, but what comes to J. H. Wolfe in a refrigerator car
DIRB.GT FROM THE MARTS.
It furnishes the CHOICEST of all MEATS, FISH, OYSTERS and GAME to be
found in EASTERN MARKETS. Since the opening of Wolfe's Cafe, several re-
ceptions, dinners and banquets have been served.
THE LINEN IS SPOTLESS.
The Chefs of the Cafe are first-class and J. II. himself is the prince of caterers. Such en-
terprise as J. 11. Wolfe has shown in the establishment of this Cafe deserves.

gentlemen:—We are in receipt of your esteemed favor of the

to accept your offer on the lot of overcoats which you order, (al-
though they are some of the most desirable portions of our stock
to-day), and which we have shipped as per invoice enclosed here-
in. You are doubtless aware that these goods are billed to you at
about 50 per cent of their cost of production. However, on account
of the genera! depression of trade in large fiinncial centers, we are
willing to accept your proposition, but wish to warn vou at the
same time that such prices as those you offer are not likely a^ain
to prevail for many a day. Awaiting your further commands, we
remain very truly yours.
