Making: Better Track.
A large force of workmen have
been and still are engaged in im
proving the Frisco railroad bed both
east and west-of Stroud. The defec-
tive ties are being replaced by first
class ones, the grade is being made
solid, and the quicksandy spots are
ballasted with limestone. The Sa-
pulpa-Oklahoma extension of the
Frisco is becoming one of the best
: constructed, best equipped and best
managed railroads in the great south-
, west.- Stroud Messeneei.
Generally a Malicious Liar.
Of all the noisy monuments at the
foolkiller's muchly-marked resting
place, the gibbering yap who tells
you how much more some other town
is paying for produce is, perhaps,
the most pestiferous. Ninety-nine
times in a hundred he lies, and the
hundredth time he lies twice by tell-
ing the same idiotic tale in the other
town with the statement reversed.
Just now he infests the wheat-grow-
ing sections,but this fall he will per-
petrate a recrudescence in the cotton
country. Quite frequently these
noisy freaks have nothing to sell,
never had anything, and never will
have. They are simply and exclu-
sively possessed of an inclination to
stir up strife and do promiscuous
damage. A sort of missing link be-
tween a coyote and a tumble bug,
they are a disgrace to their related
species on both sides. When one of
these peddlers of commercial scan-
dals starts to tell you his silly story,
just tender him your written permis-
sion to go to the "other town," and
offer to take up a collection to de-
fray his expenses if there is any
of Chandler, en
dorsed and super-
vised by the Uni-
ted Staes govern-
ment should be-
good enough for
Colored Man Robbed.
On Monday, July 13, while
Campbell (colored) ,
miles west and one-half mile north
of Wellston, was away from home
doubt about his financial ability to attending the^edding of a brother,
that! two other colored men entered his
pay his passage. The town
loses one of these whining yahoos is
in luck.—Asher Altruist.
Judge Allison is Glad.
The city of Chandler has voted an
issuance of $50,000 in bonds, of
which $35,000 are to be used in per-
fecting their system of wateiworks,
and $15,000 in improving the streets.
The city did just the right thing.
The editor especially thinks so, as
he, while city editor of the Daily
Publicist, began the agitation which
lead to the calling of the bond elec-
house, and driving his wife out, took
possession of a trunk that contained
eleven hundred and fifty dollars.
They carried the trunk a short dis-
tance from the house and breaking it
open, took the money and skipped
out. From the description of the
men given Campbell, by his wife, of
the three men, he thinks he knows
who they were, but up to the present
time he has failed to find any trace
of them or Ihe money.--Wellston
