Probably That of McCrackan.
It is thought that the body of James
McCracken, who mysteriously disap-
peared from his home at Pawhuska
about two weeks ago after taking out
some 120,000 worth of life insurance,
■was found Saturday afternoon. A
man's body was drugged from the Ar-
kansas river by fishermen on Saturday
afternoon near Osage. The hands and
feet of the body were gone and the
head had been scalped. For this rea-
son, tile features of the dead man
could not be compared very well with
the missing man. However, the
clothes of the drowned man were iden-
tified as those belonging to Mc-
It is the general supposition that it
is McCracken's body that 1ms been
found. Mr. Ed I.owe and wife, living
on a ranch, und absolutely disinter-
ested parties, testified that while rid-
ing along the Arkansas river, on the
day that McCracken disappeared they
saw him fall from a. raft into the
river. The body was not found and
Saturday’s discovery it is thought will
clear up the mystery.
A coroner's inquest was to have
■been held in Cleveland Sunday and
while the inquest was on attorneys for
McCracken's widow heard of it. They
immediately telegraphed to Cleveland
and had the inquest stopped, oh the
grounds that the inquest belonged to
Osage county, where the body was dis-
covered. Monday morning an inquest
was held in Hominy. Sunday word
was sent to A. D. Young of the Mutual
Benefit and James F. McCoy, of the
Travelers, both of this city and they
were called to Cleveland to view the
body. They went up Monday night on
the "Katy,” walked across the bridge,
and took a carriage rto Cleveland, view-
ing the body at midnight. They re-
turned to Tulsa at 7 o’clock Tuesday
morning. The body had been in the
water for nine days.
McCracken had taken out some $20,-
000 insurance in different companies I
and shortly afterwards disappeared.,
His wife hired two lawyers to start j
proceedings to get the insurance. The I
companies becoming suspicious that j
some scheme was on foot to defraud )
them, required proof of edath before
paying the insurance money.

on 70 cents for dinner consisting of
the following menu: Cream of tomato

Few Banks to Release Charters-
Washington, Aug. 25 T I* Kane.
deputy comptroller of the currency.
stated yesterday that a number of na-
tional banks in Oklahoma had notified
the comptroller of the currency of
their Intention to suspend their na-
tional charter and enter the state
banking system because of the opin-
ion rendered by the Attorney General
that they cannot legally avail them-
solves of the state guaranty laws
which are not legal for them.
"There are about 310 national hanks i
In the state of Oklahoma," said Mr. |
Kane, "only 57 of which entered into
the guaranty seheme. On August 3,
these 57 hanks were notified that they
must withdraw from tho agreement.
So far replies hnvo been received from
53 of them. Twenty-seven have in-
formed the comptroller that they have
notified the state hanking hoard of I
their desire to withdraw from the1
guaranty agreement, and seven have
Indicated their desre to surrender
their national charters and reorganize
ns state hanks, and two only have
thus far actually gone Into voluntary
liquidation for that purpose.
"Replies have been received from
134 of the 253 bunks that have not en-
tered Into the agreement. A majority
of them state that they had no inten-
tion of doing so, as they were not in
with the movement. One national
hank chartered stated that its pur-
pose In converting from a state hank
to the national system was to escape
the requirements of the guaranty

State Fair for Oklahoma.
At Oklahoma City, October 1st to
10th, 1908. The great industrial and
agricultural exposition of Oklahoma.
If you believe that yours is the best
county in the State, and you surely
do, get up a county exhibit for the
State Fair. Competition is open to
every County Board of Agriculture, to
Associations and Individuals of every
county in the State. The State Fair
Association offers $400 in prizes for
the best and largest display of farm
products from every county In the
State of Oklahoma, Oklahoma county
not allowed to compete in this exhibit.
The premium money will be divided
into three prizes, $200; $125 and $75.
The New Agricultural Building will be
one of the attractive features of the
Fair and will be filled witli a grand
display of the resources of Oklahoma.
For further information address the
Secretary at Oklahoma City.
The Department of Agriculture de-
clares that rats cause an annual dam-
age of $160,000,0000 to the crops in the
country. Bats are almost as expensive

SHAKLES DRUG CO.
From Buffalo, New York to Tulsa.
One of the longest rides on a motor-
cycle was and is being achieved by
Mr. E. A. Gustafson, who started
from Buffalo some days ago and came
through Erie. Cleveland, Toledo, Chi-
cago, Springfield, and other points
along the way on the journey. At
Lincoln, Illinois, he replaced the ma-
chine with new Columbia batteries
and the same gave a good supply until
Tulsa was reached. From Illinois he
landed in St. Louis and thence to
Springfied, here the piston rings were
renewed. The roads in many places
were very rough and hilly and hard on
the tiser However, the machine and
tires held out pretty well. On reach-
ing here the rider sent the easeings or
tires to the G. & J. people at Indian-
apolis, Ind., for retiring and they have
been three weeks getting them back
to the cyti for Mr. Gustafson, who is
aiming to go on to New Mexico and
may be on to California. The Auto-Bi
is manufactured by the Auto-Bl Co. at
Buffalo, N. Y. The engine on the
cycle is a three-horse power one and
the Machine Is a No. 47 Silver Gray,
and cost about 5215 and looks well,
having run about 2,000 miles. It has
on It a Veedertrlp Cyclomotor that
counts tHe distance of miles and the
numbers of miles betwen towns. The
operator tells us that he can make two
hundred miles a day on real good
roads, but on the general average
roads would make about one hundred
or a little beeter per day.

TEN REASONS IN FAVOR OF ATTENDING
This New and Progressive Institution of Learning.
1 Its New Buildings are unexcelled in beauty and convenience. They
are up-to-date and as good us modern science cun make them.
2. The equipment is first class in every particular.
3. The Ease of Access and tiie healthfulness of tiie city in which locat-
ed. The attractiveness of its homes, its lieautiful churches, its enter-
prising newspapers, its wide-awake citizens, its sociul and educational
spirit combine to make it a desirable home for a modern College.
4. The Splendid Courses offered in tiie schools, giving the student a
rare opportunity to strengthen his general culture or to tit himself for
some definite work.
5. The Rare Opportunities offered for special studies in the Academy
and in the College departments. The Academy off ers full courses pre-
paring for tiie entrance of all tiie schools of tiie College. See tiie cata-
logue which will he sent on application.
•i. The Character of the faculty at once commends attention In
scholarship and experience it ranks witli those of tiie best colleges of the
West. The heads of tiie departments come in direct personal contact
with the students and classes, which is always a great gain.
7. The Spirit of tiie Student body is wholesome and stimulating.
The spur of active competition with bright students in the classes and in
the different organizations of the college, whether in tiie Acadumy or col-
lege departments, counts much in making up the true estimateof a college.
8. It is Co-educational, an organization which lias been approved and
adopted by nearly all of the colleges, great and small, established in this
country in tiie lust fifty years, as well as by many of the older colleges.
The association of young men und women in class and laboratory work
develops intellectual activities and traits of character more comprehen-
sive and more desirable than in other institutions.
9. The Expenses are lower than at colleges offering similar facilities
elsewhere and every effort is made to keep them within the reach of stu-
| dents of average means. Many young men and women may find employ-
" ment, enabling them to meet part of their expenses.
10. This College stands for all that is best in education. It takes
high rank with the sister colleges of the country. It is a good thing to
lie an alumnus of such a college.
