MRS. BROWN DEAD.
Mr«. Brown, wife of Judge T. L.
Brown of our city, died Sunday night
in a hospital in Kansas City. Judge
Brown has been at her side for the
past two weeks and her death had been
expected for sometime. Judge Adams
and Attorney J. I. Howard went up to
Kansas City to attend the funeral
which we understand will be held in
Colorado where deceased will be buried.
While Mrs. Brown's death has been
expected momentarily, the news of
her demise was a shock to the many
friends in this city of Judge and Mrs.
On account of Mrs. Brown'a sickness
no court has been held here for the
past two weeks and it is not yet known
what arrangements the judge will
make in regard to holding court upon
his return home.
Mr. and Mrs. S. E. Dunbar, of Mus-
kogee. and Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Martin
of Chelsea, visited the family of John
Dirickaon Sunday and Monday.
YOUNG GIRL DIES.
Viola Horn buck Is, the 11 year old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs Henry Horn-
buckle, of Tiawah, died Tuesdsy morn-
ing and was buried at Inola, in the
afternoon of the same day. J. Herbert
Moore, of this city, having charge of
the funeral arrangements.
The little girl had been sick for a
long time with typhoid fever which
Anally terminated in spinal meningitis,
and wa>* the immediate cause of the
young girl's death.
W. E. MOODY GIVES BOND.
W. E. Moody, who waa returned to
this city Thursday night, was arraigned
Friday morning and plead not guilty;
his bond was fixed at $1500 and was
eaaily furnished; his bondsmen are H.
M. Martin H. H. Makemson and B H.
Hester; upon the approval of the bond
Mr. Moody was immediately released
and is still in the city.
His case will probably come up for
trial in the May term of court.
Miss Lydia Tennyson, of Foyil, was
visiting in the city Friday evening.
Henry Wolf and Arch Hicks on a charge
of burglery, the men were arrested at
the home of Wolf about nine miles north
east of Claremore, and both plead guil-
ty to Mr. Stephens when arrested,
showed him where they had placed the
tftollen goods, and are now in the coun-
ty jail wanting to plead guilty to the
charge of burglary.
The burglary waa committed at the
store at Delanev. a new post office re-
cently estanlished in the eaat part of
the county, the store being conducted
by Monroe Oaburn.
There ia a atory connected with this
robbtry and the capture of the robbers
that rivala the famous tales of Conan
Doyle. Sherlock Holmea would blush
to learn how eaaily hia remarkable
feats have been duplicated right here
in Oklahoma. The story runs like this:
Henry Wolf had on Saturday night at-
tended a Christmas tree and had been
remembered by Santa Claus wUh at
least one present; what it was we do
not know, nor does the present enter
into the tale. But Santa had labeled
this present for Henrv Wolf and when
Henry received hia present he pulled
this small bit of paper off the present
anJ placed it in his coat pocket for
future reference. No doubt when
Henry saw hia name in writing he be-
came possessed with a spirit of vanity,
and even valued the bit of paper bear-
ing his name more than his present.
At any rate he kept the paper, but the
story does not relate what became of
the present, nor even what it was
Now when Henry and Arch planned
their little game of "bad men" Henry
waa wearing this coat bearing inside
one pocket this small bit of paper on
which was written "Henry Wolf."
Henrv became interested in his little
robbery game and pulled off his coat at
the door where entrance waa made to
the store and left his faithful dog to
guard the coat; but it seems that Henry
and Arch became frightened while at
work and suddenly left the place after
making two'or three trips from the
store to their hiding place in the woods.
At any rate the coat waa abandoned,
and when the proprietor of the place
visited his store early Monday morning
he found he had been robbed there
pocketa of the coat and there found being cut off from its county seat with-
the bit of paper bearing the name of out railroad facilities, but it is only a
"Henry Wolf." Sheriff immediately matter of a short time until there will

with Arch, where he was denied even the city of Collinsville to remain in
the little slip .of paper bearing his name Rogers County and we believe if put
which was his only proof to the other to vote they will decide to remain at
prisoners that he had been remembered home. What does Tula* promise them?

The people of Claremore and Rogers
County again hear a report that cer-
tain individuals of Collinsville and vicin-
ity have started the circulation of a pe-
tition to have that part of Rogers
County lying immediately around that
little city taken from Rogers County
and added to Tulsa Couuty.
This ia a question that some of the
politicians of Collinsville have been
agitating since statehood, and it would
seem they will never lie satisfied until
the good people of Collinsville have al-
lowed a vote upon the proposition.
We can't understand why Collinaville
shoufd want to he attached to Tulsa
County; nor do we believe a majority
of the people in that part of the county
are in favor of such fiction. When the
Constitutional Convention was in sess-
ion these same partita tried to become
a part of Tulsa County, but the good
people of Collinsville rose up in their
might and demanded that they be al-
III NAWAV ACCIDENT.
While driving up Fourth street near
the Bayieas residence, Wednesday
afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Gail Shiffer
and Mrs. R. D. Pollard happened to a
runaway accident that was quite a seri-
ous affair. The runaway was caused
by one of the front wheels coming off
the buggy, which frigntened the horse.
Mrs. Shiffer, who was driving, jumped
out of the buggy and tried to hold the
horse, but was unable to do so.
Both Mr Shiffer and Mrs. Pollard
were thrown from the buggy and were
picked up by Judge Bonds, E. U Bay-
less and others and carried into the
Bay less home where Dr. Hays was
called and examined their wounds.
Examination showed that Mr. Shif-
fer was suffering from a broken shoul- j
der and a few minor bruises Mrs.
Pollard was considerably shaken up j
but her wounds proved to be nothing j
serious. Mrs. Shiffer escaped unhurt.
