Years cays tlio Obeycnno Sunbeam.
Their condition made it Impossible to
determine whether they were"' the re-

is an old dug out ud In the upper
breaks near a Bprlng and two of the
skeletons were found in a gulch a few
hundred yards west of this dug out

place thcro is a rock on the top of a

The crop yields of Oklahoma aro
fullv oxeinnlified by the amount of
school land lease money received by
the commissioner slnoe July 1 The
unnual leaso money amount to SI20-
000 I u round numbers Since July 1
the sohool land commissioner has col-
lected 3)5.000 on leases thus exempli-
fying that our farmers although
loscoos havo abundant means on hand
to liquidate their indebtedness while
tho wheat orop is just bsginniug to
movo nnd tho corn nnd cotton crops aro
not yot marketable. When tho Okla-
homa whoat generally begins to movo
and tho corn nnd cotton crops aro
placed on the market the degrco of
prosperity for Oklahoma will bo bo
noticeable that it will challenge the
world in proportion to Its area.
When It Is considered that the school
lands constitute but a very small per
centago of the lands of tho territory it
is astounding to contemplate tho dol-
lars tbat will fall Into the coffers of
the farmers and find their way into all
the channels of business.
