Roosevelt's Rough Riders second
annual Reunion, to l>e held at Okla-

will lie remembered that the regiment

The experience of C. A. Snow & Co.,
in obtaining more than 20,000 patents
for inventors has enabled them to help-
fully answer many questions relating
to the protection of intellectual prop-1

and foreign patents, with cost of same,
and how to procure them; trade marks,

How Lincoln Kept Books.
In his early life Abraham Lincoln
had a primitative method qf keeping
Inioks. At the time his law partner,
John T. Stuart, represented the
Springfield district in congress, Lin-
coln was forced, much against his will,
to keep an account of some kind. The
plan he adopted was somewhat re-
markable. When he received a fee
he ne\ided it in halves. His half he
put in his pocket; Stuart's portion he
put in an enveloje and labeling it
"Stuart's half," threw it intoa drawer
until his partner's return from Wash-

On t lie afternoon of June 17. we had
the pleasure of preaching for the con-
gregation worshiping at the Flint
school house, in the strip southeast of
Caldwell, Kas. About five years ago
while pastor of the church at Cald-
well. we held a short meeting at the
* lint school house and organized the
congregation there, and it was a real
pleasure to again meet tlie church:
again look upon familiar faces and l>e-
hold their faithfulness in the Master's
work. Mm. Pomeroy, the present pas-
tor at Caldwell, preaches for them
twice a month in the afternoon.
What great changes have been
wrought in this community during
these years! Five years ago we
preached in "the old swd school house"
and found the people living in dug-
outs, sod houses and box houses, witli
not a tree to be seen, on the prairie.
The sod house has been removed and
a neat roomy frame building placed in
its stead; the dugouts, sf)d and box
houses have almost entirely disap-
peared and cozy dwellings have taken
their places, while tlie thrifty or-
chards, vineyards and blackberry
patches form a pleasing contrast with
t lie conditions of former years. What
is true of this community is equally
true of the greater portion of the Chero-
kee Outlet. On September lti, 1803,
when the great rosh was made into
this country, the houseless, treeless
prairie prairie with the familiar bark-
ing of tiie coyote and tlie antelope
nimbly skipping over the country; the
flutter of the prairie chicken, and the
frightful and warning noise of an oc-
casional rattlesnake, forcefully re-
minded one of the fact that he was in
a new country. How the scene has
changed ! The waving fields of ri-
pened grain, t lie clicking of the busy
binders, tlie puffing of the iron horse
as the train speeds across tlie country,
the smoke rising from many thrifty
towns, tJie splendid dwellings, the
beautiful church and school buildings,
all make'it difficult to realize that we
are living in a country that was so re-
cently a barren waste.
Cod lias so wonderfully blessed the
people of this new country. May they
ever realize their dependence upon
llim and show their gratitude to Him
by taking a lively interest in missions
both home and foreign, and in every
move that has for it* object the liet-
terment of the people of our fair
country. W. S. Rkhokn.

A New Field.
On Saturday June 1<>, I left home
and companion, to enter a new field
with sword drawn for the conflict. 1
had only gotten a few miles from tlie
peaceful scenes of home till 1 noticed
that an anemy had appeared and done
great damage to the crops a scourge
to that part of Oklahoma. It made
me think of what was recorded re-
specting Egypt's history, the plague
of hail. This in Oklahoma has done
great damage to the crops, serving the
rich and poor alike.
1 traveled on thinking how nice It
would be for those who had not suffer
ed to divide with those who had.
One of a certain company said to
Jesus, Master speak to my brother
that lie divide the inheritance with
me. And he said, Man, who made me
a Judge or divider over you. And he
said unto them take heed and beware
if covetousness, for man's life consist-
eth not of I lie things or the abundance
of things which lie hath or passeth."
Luke 12:14. lti.
1 journeyed on in quest of my ap-
pointed destination, and having been
directed wrong, sun down found me
three miles too far away. So I had t <
travel the three miles back, arriving
at the right place at dark, all alone
and a st ranger, knowing no one. As I
am almost seventy-t hree years old and
eyesight is too dim to groop atxiut in
the dark, I waited until !io'clock but
no one came. With a pocket knife I
cut some wheat fur the faithful ser-
vant which brought me to the place.
With the buggy cushion and lap robe
1 made a bed, and with my weapon,
the Bible, by m.v aide, I trusted to
Him who guards the camp of the
saints. I laid down to rest, remem-
bering that Jesus had not where to lay
I fell into a meditative mood. I
thought of the past four years or
evangelizing and only one hundred
and four had obeyed the gospel. Oh.
how little I had done! I thought of
the literal harvest. The grain is ripe
but much of it has lieen heat-en down
by the storm. The stalk is broken
the head drooping, ready to perish,
Every reaper is strained to the utmost
to save that which was sown to the
flesh. Now, brother, what are you
sowing for the reaping by and by. We
ought to be sowing the good seed of
the Kingdom for the great harvest is
drawing nigh. Brother, preacher,
prepare the minds. There is a crown
of unfading joy coming.

FROM THE CHURCHES.
Our meeting with Bro. I>. I). Boyle
closed with the last Sunday in May,
with fifteen additions. Bro. Boyle is
one of God's noblemen. His work is
of a substantial kind. The rainy
weather affected t lie attendance,
but large audiences were present not-
withstanding and lasting good has
The Territorial C'. E. convention
was a feast of good things, and the
work in Norman has received great
benefit from having the Endeavorers
The territorial university has just
closed a very successful year; the best
by far in its history.
The writer closed his work with the
church here on last Lord's day. Bro.
Carpenter, of Chandler, has been
called to the pastorate at this place.
With this church and Bro. ( arpentcr i
in the lead, the brotherhood may ex-'
pect good reports. The church is bar-1
monious, with the second largest
membership in the city.
The writer has been here eighteen '
months. There have beeh lsti addi-
tions, eighty of which have been by
obedience. The church has IniiI three
special meetings; the first by Bio. Bo-
en, with sixty-one additions. Bro.
Boen deserves, perhaps, more credit
than any one man for the success of i
the work here, lie came and held the
first meeting with no assurance from
the church tliat he would lie remun-
erated. But with his faith in the
Lord Jesus, and his zeal and ent husi-
asm, he was placed in a position to ac-
complish the work that followed.
May the Lord give us more such faith-
ful workmen as Bro. Boen. Our sec-
ond meeting was held by Bro. J. S.
Haddock, of Bells, Tenn., one of the
best men it has ever l>een my pleasure
I to meet. A t borough gospel preacher,
[ with untiring energy. He presented
the old story in its symplicity and
beauty. This meeting resulted in
seven)y-six adtlit ions to the congrega-
tion here. Bro. D. I». Boyle was with
us in the meeting just closed, and
while ibis meeting did not result in a
great number of additions, il was just
what the church needed Tliesp, three.,
brethren, Boen. Haddock and Boyle-,
as representative men of our -brother-
hood, have made a lasting impression
upoji the minds of t lie church and jieo-
ple of (»iir little city.
My relations w ith this church as its
pasior have been very pleasant, in-
deed. While J feel that 1 did not do
justice to the church and carry on my
school work in the university, yet the
Lord has blessed us together. We
have answered all of the missionary
calls with our apportionment with
one except ion. The pastor has made
1,200 calls, preached nine funeral ser-
mons, solemnized three marriages, lie-
sides the regular services of the
church, at which there have been
Last Sunday evening the church
tendered Miss Wherry and the pastor
a farewell reception; aliout 2oo of the
members being present. It was a
very enjoyable event. Bro. Carpenter
will find a people here who will stand
by him in the Lord's work. May the
Lord bless them in the relation of pas-
tor and people, is my earnest prayer.
My ielation with Hie brethren of
the territory has been pleasant and
proiitatile to me, and 1 shall always
note with interest the good work of
tne brethren in tlie great territory of
Oklahoma. II is my great desire to
spend some time in one of our great
universities to prepare myself better
for my chosen work. Pray for me.
May success attend Tiik Oklaho-
ma CuuisTiAN and all the interests of
tue Church of Christ in Oklahoma.
