LEGISLATURE'S VISIT TO MAN6UM AND GRANITE
A Delightful Run Over the Great Rock Island Route.
RECEIVED IN TRUE SOUTHERN STYLE.
Solons and their Ladies Banquetted at Chickasha, Mangum and Gran-
ite.—A fine View of the Wichita Reservation.—Granite
and Greer County as Seen from the Summit of
From the Guthrie State Capitol.
There have been excursions to
Stillwater, Woodward, Alva and
Edmond. They were all fine but
one that left Guthrie Sunday
morning for Granite and Mangupi
over the Great Rock Island route
leaves the others so far in the
shade that it will take years for
them to catch up.
This excursion was gotten up by
United States Marshal Harry
Thompson, and it was thought at
first that it would not couie oft
until next Sunday Last Thurs-
day night it was deoided that a
week was too long to Wait and
Harry thought so too* Two days
was all be required to get a trnin
into Guthrie Sunday morning It
was thought that Pullman coaches
could be had at Topek , but it was
found that no sleeping or drawing
room cars could be procured any
nearer than Chicago.
Harry was in a quandiy but as
be bad never been downed before
and as he had promised tae legis
lators that they should have the
finest accomodations that could
be procured in the United State#,
be wired Mr. E. W. Thompson, the
assistant general agent of the
Bock Island at Topeka, that the
Pullman's had to come even if
they had to be hauled from Chics-
go. Mr. Thompson responded
nobly, and on Sunday morning the
legislators, press gang and terri-
torial olicers were sitting in the
finest and most luxuriant coaches
tbiB side of Chicago.
Men who have traveled exten-
sively over railroads, north, east,
is necessary to a man's hap-
piness, but it is not mere
friendship that brings the
people for miles around
Mangun to this store. It is
knowledge of the- fact that
we can save them money on
Plows, Planters and Cultivators.
"Tried and True" makes are the only
ones Good enough for our Customers.
