There are two rewards that of
eternal life and eternal death. No
man w-ants to believe there is not
immortal life neither does he wish
to believe there is immortal death.
Evidence of one proves the other.
Tell of years of death then im-
mortal life and man is dissatisfied.
The belief of life immortal only
fceds the appetite of the soul. We
want to believe tbe sou! will live.
These rewards are conditions of
faith. You cannot get to heaven
without beliei in a heaven. You
may go to perdition and not be
lieve there is a place of punish-
ment. He who believes in immortality
has life or death now. When a
man receives this divine nature
this earnest he becomes a child of
God. You are yet in probation
under tutorage. A child of God
here is as much a child of God as
those who have joined the hosts
It is not that the sinner will be
but he is already condemned.
The sorrow of the wicked man is
the earnest of death already con-1
demned dead. 1 he call tor a
change any change is tbe earn-
est of death.
You cannot circumstance a
Christian that he will be unhappy.
The world will not make the
Tbe sentence of death placed on
the wicked can be changed now
but you cannot change it in the
life to come. Christ can save to
the uttermost all who come unto
Him. God is offering liie and
salvation to every man. He calls
on you as you are today.
You need them when you eat. Be-
sides that the lack of them detracts
greatly from your personal appear-
ance. If you have a tooth out bridge
work will restore the appearance and
give you another loot b to chew with.
If the root remains crown it and
your tooth is as Rood as ever. Teeth
extracted and filled without pain.
Hundreds of testimonials from people
you cannot humbug.

AWFUL CRIME AT FORT GIBSON.

Mrs. W. P.- Thompson entertained

Elegant refreshments were served

A Tip for Red Fork. '
Mr. Grant Crebs sf railroad con-
tractor of Kansas City who is an
uncle of Mrs. B. E. Walker of this
city is spending the day in Vinita.
He is here on business connected with
the railroad survey from Red Fork
south through the Creek nation and
secured the services of II. J Collins in
getting a map of that country made
Another foul crime in the Cherokee
nation was revealed last Thursday
evening by the finding of the bodies
of two men in the brush near Fort
Gibson. The men were strangers and
hfld evidently been dead many hours
when found. One was between fifty
and sixty years of age and the other
twenty-three or twenty-four. The
elder had been shot through the
neck the other beaten to death with
a bludgeon. The bodies evidently had
been hauled in a wagon to the spot
where they were discovered.
A man driving a horse team com-
posed of a gray and a white faced sorrel
bitched to a new wagon was seen
Thursday afternoon in the vicinity of
the placd where the bodies were found
and it is presumed that be is the mur-
derer. It is thought the men were
killed Wednesday night while id camp
and the bodies next day carried to a
distant point by the murderer.
The dead men were taken to Fort
Gibsun yesterday where they were
buried without identification. Offi-
cers are now on the trail of the sus-
pected murderer and if he does not
abandon tbe wagon and team he will
surely be overhauled in a very short
The people of Gibson are greatly

E. M. MING FURNITURE COMP'Y
The great need of additional leg-
islation at the next session of con-
gress is becoming apparent more
and more every day. If the In-
dian tribal laws are to he enforced
they should certainly be re-enacted
and made a part of the federal
statutes. If the tribal revenues
hare to be saved to tbe Indians
there must be some law by wh:ch
they can be collected.
