HOMESTEAPEIH ARE FACING LOSS
Settlers In "The Big Pasture" Unable
To Meet Payments.
Walter.—More than one hundred
entrymen in the "Big Pasture" have
been notified by the Guthrie land of-
fice that if they fall to make payment
of the second Installment and Interest
due on their land that their home-
sead entry will be canceled.
Owing to past crop failures, Con-
gressman FerriB has secured exten-
sion of past payments. The act of
congress of April 27, 1912, provided
that all sums due on Bald lands shouW
be divided into two equal Installments
with Interest. It Is said to be impos-
sible for these people to meet the sec-
ond Installment and Interest at this
time. Attorney Japp has taken up the
matter of extension by appeal to the
secretary of the Interior requesting
that no action looking for cancellation
until November 1. be taken until these
people have an opportunity to gather
