The return to parliamentary
practices by the esteemed city
council bodes a better day for the
town. It is a- good idea even if it
did take an ordinance to do it.
A new record in cattle receipts
was made yesterday at Kansas
City. Over 18000 were received
the largest receipts in the history
of the city. Most of them were
from the grass ranges of the south-
west and will go to the big corn
districts as feeders.
Some one has 6gured out the
time it will take the town com-
missions in the Creek and Choc-
taw nations to finish their jobs.
The end of the present century
will see the good work just fairly
begun. The Cherokee nation will

Now that the grazing season is
about over the government has
beguo its annual talk about taxing
the cattle men. By the time the
cattle are all shipped the depart-
ment will again be notified that
the prosecuting attorney stands
ready to prosecute. The Indians
are getting an object lesson in the
white man's ways.
L. VV. Bryan superintendent of
mines of the Indian Territory
will soon have completed his re-
port for the fiscal year ending
"June 30. The output of coal was
greater than during the preceding
year and wilt amount to about
1400000 tons. All this cotl was
mined in the Choctaw nation and
the royalties on it will aggregate
Delaware Emigration Delayed.
The Delaware emigration party
to old Mexico of which Tom
Ketchum and family were to form
a part have called a halt and will
wait developments before starting.
There is an Indian uprising now
going on in the very section of
country to which they were going
and they have been notified to not
start till it is quelled. '
A Jluskogee Boy Honored By Adju-
tant General Corbin.
" Mr. R. K. Cravensof this city
was yesterday notified from Wash-
ington that he bad just been com-
missioned to a first lieutenancy in
the United States army by Adju-
tant General Corbin and today he
has been receiving; the congratu
lations of his Iriends which means
everybody In Muskogee.
' Mr. .Cravens enlisted a year ago
in the First Territorial volunteer
infantry and was a first lieutenant
when mustered out of the service.
He is a true son of Mars and the
material instinct is bij by inher-
itance. His father Colonel Cra-
vens was a gallant Confederate
soldier and participated in many
a hard fought engagement during
the civil war. Lieutenant Cravens
has not yet been assigned to ser-
vice but he will likely receive
orders in a few days to report for
SHIRT WAIST IRONERS.
Haavr and Exhaaatlas Work of I.aon-
dreaae Canaed by Summer
. This a the season when the shirt
waist wearer comes forth in ill her
glory and refreshes both herself and
the cnsunl beholder continually by Tier
attractive display of nicely searched
and iroucd linen. The girl who has
just attired herself In a spick and span
shirt waist just fresh froro the laundry
is na delightful to the eye and the
senses of ier fellows as Is the spotless
shirt waist to its gratified wearer. But
to the girls who iron those waists
well that to use a Kiplingism is an-
other story. - -.. ' '!
One hundred 110 120 and even high-
er now and then the thermometers in
the big laundries often register.' And
in this heat shirt waist girls not wear-
1:5a but ironers stand and toil all day
long. Many many hours of hard and
exhausting labor daily is necessary in
order that the other shirt waist wom-
en the wearers may "do themselves
proud" in the ubiquitous garment
which bus proved itself such a good
friend to womankind. Nor does the
work of Ironing shirt waists belof!g
to the order of that which may be
performed hastily with u minimum of
care and labor. . No indeed 1 Every
woman who wears a shirt waist wants
it perfectly ironed naturally enough
and that means work. Very few wom-
en have sufficient shirt waists in ordi-
nary use to allow the pretty "blouses"
sent to the ; laundry one week to be
returned the nest. As a rule two or at
most three days is all that can be al-
lowed for their laundering. And that
means work also overwork overtime
bat alasl not overpay as a general
thing for the sUirt waist ironers.
Doctors and hospital nurses tell grew-
some stories occasionally of dread dis-
eases brought on and young lives sac-
rificed by the perpetual standing on
one foot and the heavy machine work
performed in many laundries. The girl
who stands on one foot all day long
year in and year out pressing down
the heavy treadle of an ironing ma-
chine with the other until she grows
too sick to work longer and goes to
the nearest free hospital or lapses into
semi-invalidism at home has no love
for shirt waists as a rule. For much
of this exhausting and difficult labor
is carried on in behalf of the shirt waists
which most other women love and
lest the non-sbirtwaist-wearing half
of Chicago humanity grow unduly
puffed up let it be said that the deli-
cate and fragile negligee and outing
sbirti so favored of mankind for some
time past are very nearly if not quite
as bad as the shirt waists. While as to
"rush orders well there wouldn't
be so many of them perhaps and the
average man and woman would order
a few more shirts or shirt waists even
if a little pinch had to be felt some
where else if only they realized all of
the torture and strain and all for very
low wages which must be undergone
by some one every time they moke em-
pbatio aemands for their laundry bun-
dle to be returned "just as quickly as
possible." Chicago Chronicle.
"I hope" said Wimbleton to Mrs.
Witherby who had just come back from
abroad "that you enjoyed your trip."
"I did. Indeed " said Mrs. Witherbv.
at she returned the slight band pres
sure in the usual manner; "but ao you
know I came over with so many celeb-
rities who were on the steamer that it
seems rather strange now to associate
with common ordinary people. Brook-
MOTTOES SLIGHTLY MIXED.
Young- Chicago Married Couple's
Walla Are Adorned with Lit-
A young married couple who recently
went to housekeeping on Clybourn ave-
nue had just enough money to buy the
necessary furniture. They had sot
sufficient cash to invest in mottoes and
pictures. The young wife is handy
with a brush but has considerable yet
to learn in books. She made an effort
to supply the deficiency in mottoes for
the wall by working at odd times . on
plain cardboard with water colors.
Here are some of the mottoes that now
adorn the Clybourn avenue home:
: "A Btltch in Time la the Noblest
Work of God."
"What Is Home Without a Fool and
"People Who Live in Glass Houses
"Birds of a Feather Gather No Moss."
"He Who Fights and Buns Away Get
"If in Union There Is Strength. Then
Tls Folly to Be Wise." ;;
"Procrastination Is But Skin Deep."
"The Sword Ain't in It witli the Pen."
"How Sharper Than a Serpent's Child
It Is to Have a Thankless Tooth." ;
"Early to Bed and' Early to Rise Is as
Bad as a Fire." - .
"He That Goes a Borrowing Makes
Man Healthy. Wealthy and Wise."
"Great Oaks Shiuld Keep tJear
"Economy Never I'id Enn Smooth."
"Use the Rod and Save the Jam"
