TALALA ROGERS COUNTY, OKLA., THURSDAY. MAY 13, 1909. NO. 7
Fisk & Stapleton
1 alala has thousands of acres o! the finest tillable land in the world lying in an uncultivated state surrounding
the village, in one of the most eastern countries in the United States where the Ilomeseeker can obtain all the
advantages of a Western country in buying cheap land and at the same time be within the reach of good
markets for what they ha\e to sell. \\ hile lalala has good stores built of brick, good elevator und Hank there
is many things that is open and needed to help develope the country, such as a creamery, canning factory and
there is undeveloped coal fields within two miles of the town. We are only 35 miles from the city of Coffeyville
Kansas, and 12 miles to the north of us is a city of 5000 and the county seat is a city of over 4000 people and
there is nowhere that the creamery business would bring equal results with right here. For in the first place
the range season will furnish cheap feed for cattle from the first of April to the first of I )ecember and the mild
winters makes it an easy matter to keep the cattle up with but little feed as they will find some picking if they
have any range at all. It must be remembered that none of this land could be sold before the 27th oflast July
when the restrictions were removed allowing the Cherokee Indians who were and are the owners, to sell their
lands if the wanted to. The principle agricultural crops of Rogers county are corn, wheat, oats, Irish potatoes,
sweet potatoes and garden vegetables of nearly every kind. And when it is taken into consideration that Rogers
county was seventh in the state of Oklahoma, which has 75 counties in the average yield of corn per acrelast
year, coupled with its advantages of nearness to all the markets such as Kansas City, St. Louis and many other
smaller commercial centers-it should readily be plain to the business mind of any casual observer that the op-
portunities which are here today wont stand upon an open market but a short time, until their present values will
not only double in price, but more than thrible under the present scarcity of cheap lands and the thousands of
homeless people who are in search of a chance to buy a cheap home, even going into the unirrigated drought-
stricken deserts, passing by a country where irrigation is not needed and droughts are unknown and the winters
are of such a mild temprature that field work can be carried 011 the year around, in the country that is konwn
and rightly named the Paradise of the agriculturalist and the land of the fair god.

BELLAMY THE FIRST
lie Neglected to Observe the New
Guthrie Ok., May 6.—Lieuten-
ant Governor Geo. W. Bellamy
was the first victim of the new or-
der of the corporation commission
I providing penalties of from 10 to
I 50 cents for passengers who fail tp
| buy tickets before boarding the
train. The order became effective
j May 1, and 011 that morning Mr.
! Bellamy started to Guthrie from
* his home at El Reno. He did not
' have much time to spare and fail-
ed to buy a ticket. He looked
•illprised when the extra fare was
| demanded but paid it without a
word when the situation was ex-
Here is the way the editor says
! the papers will write up weddings
ten years hence: "The bride lookod
very well in a traveling diess, but
all eyes were centered on the groom
Me wore a dark suit that fitted his
form perfectly, and in his dantilv
, gloved hands he carried a small
rose. If is curly hair was beauti-
fully done and a delicate oder of
hair oil of the best quality floated
j down the aisle as he passed. The
! young people will miss him now
1 that he is married. He is loved
| by all for his many accomplish-
j uients, his tender grace and his
wiuniii'r wavs. The bride com-
mauds a good salary as book-keep-^
| er in Chicago, and the groom will '
miss none of the luxuries to which 1-
; lie has been accustomed. A crowd
1 of pretty men saw him off at the
i A TRIBUTE TO THK MO .TG*GC
Farm and Real Estate Journal:
High water never washes away
' the mortafage. It may uproot
| trees and hencoops sailing on down
j to the next stato, but after the
l fhods have subsided the mortagage
ii still there as firmly as though it
had been anchored to the founda-
i tious of the earth and then nailed
j down to the sills of the barn to
j make it doubly secure.
j Cyclones may blow away the
j woodshed, unroof the house or
! take the haystack 011 an excursion
over into another county, but
j when the blow is over it is always
! found that not even a corner of the
I mortagage has been jarred.
Talk alraut sticking closer than
1 a brother! There is a friend that
| hangs to the place like a porous
j plaster. Theives do not come in
j and steal it, the sun does not warp
it; neither does it wander off down
the road every time the gate is
j left open.
For a good, practial recipe for
1 losing a mortagage, men would
> pay most any sum; but try their
best, they simply can't.
