Da.ece cf Delawares On.
Com I. T—At the forks of the
Car.ey river, near this town, about
1 full-blood Delaware Indians are
quietly ar.d reverently observing the
Thanksgiving dance," an ancient re-
lig'.oua custom of those famous child-
ren of the forest and plains. There
is little noise of any kind for much
of the time in the "dance house”
no voice is heard The ceremony,
whir began Saturday night, will last
twelve days, according to the custom
which has been handed down through
There is much of the romantic
a-'.it the gathering of the "faith-
ful" among the rapidly disappearing
tribe, which was once so powerful.
The Delawares, who are now affiliated
with the Cherokees, number about
1,1”". all told. 20‘i of whom are full-
bloods. Of the fullbloods ,7'i per cent
have adopted the Christian faith,
while the small residue failthfully
carry out the traditions of the tribe,
handed down by memory alone. And
there is a deep touch of pathos in
th- j resent gathering, because the
old men and women realize that the
sacred religion of the Delawares will
soon \ie a thing of the j- t, so far
as its practice is concern*- !.

FIND PLACE FOR NEW STAR.
Kansas City, Mo —The decision of
the banks not to pav cash in large
amounts over their counters caused
very little embarrasment Mon-lay.
Rusines went on very much as usual,
and the closing of the doors of the
Bankers’ Trust company was only an
incident that did not disturb business

Admiral Dewey i? chairman, has r»
arrar.g.-d the stars on the American
flag to include the new state of Ok-
lahoma, which will be added on July
4, next. The forty-five stars are now
arranged on the flag in six rows,
the first, third and fifth having eight
stars, and the second, fourth and
sixth, seven stars each. It was
found by the board that the forty-
sixth star, the additional one for Ok-
lahoma. could be placed in the field
by a slight rearrangement of the
stars, and without materially chang-
ing the design of the six rows. The
new arrangement puts eight stars
in the first, third, fourth and sixth
rows and seven stars in the second
and fifth rows.

the Afflicted Indians.
Railroad Tickets Stolen.
I/)s Angeles.—A burglary thought at
first of minor Importance Sunday de-
veloped into a crime that will annoy
railroad officials throughout the coun-
try for month* to come. The Southern
Pacific station at Santa Monica was
robbed last Thursday night of skeleton
tickets valued at over $15,000, togeth-
er with the stamps,, punches and ink
pads, which will enable the thieves to

tickets will be issued to the public
through dishonest brokers.
Muskogee, I. T.—Reports have been
received here that smallpox has brok-

! the annual influx of hunters of big
game in that section.
