Yesterday' game Instead of betas
a clow one as bad been expected
proved to be a one-sided affair and
terminated In u wore of 11 to 2 in
favor of Anlmore.
Westmoreland who essayed to do
tic twirling for Diirant was easv for

Taylor in to do the twlrlln?.

though tho visitors is.curoil eight safe

tho other score bolng made on Nich-
ols poor throw to third In an attempt
to catch Slmms oft tho base.
A featuro of the game was Iiurke's
batting. Ho secured two two-base hits

The two teams this afternoon en-
gage in the third and decisive game
of the series. Harris will occupy the
box for Anlmore and Vance who de-
feated Ardmore at tiurant last week
will pitch for Dnrant so a hard fought
contest should be the result.
The reorganized Denton Athletics
were shut out Wednwiday by Dublin
by a score of 1 to 0.
lledford continues to play star ball
in left Held. Ills weakness of late
lias been his poor batting.
Dougherty was behind the bat
Wednesday tor the first time since
his Injury several weeks ago.
A feature of the two games has
been the faultless playing of Clayton
and Stone at third and short respect-
ively. A large score board has been erect-
ed on the east vide of the park for
the accommodation of the baseball
Dlnlr made a nice catch of White's
hit yesterday In the sixth Inning rob-
bing him of what looked like a sure
Savage was able ta play at second
yesterday and had a busy day. Ux-
ccpf f r a high throw to first his
wcrk was faultless.
There was a good attendance at
yesterday' game and this nfternoon's
game should be witnessed by one oC
the largest crowds of the season
Had tho team supported Mould-
ers at the bat and In the field as they
did Nichols yesterday two victories
Instead of one would bo our record
In the presont series
Rltter who Is doing the receiving
for Durnnt was hero with Farmers
vllle. He has made quite a Jump
from tho slow Farmersvllle team to
his present position with tho Athlotes
White's error yesterdny was the
first one he has made on the local
dlamcnd since Joining the Ardmoro
toam. His flno catch In deep center
howovor more than atoned for the
Kngsdale knocked one over the
right field fence .esterday which
many believed was a home run. The
umpire however was of the opinion
that It went' over on the outside of
the foul Hue
llurke showed yesterday that he Is
entitled to the 'position assigned him
In (He batting list. As soon as bis
broken ankle heals he will resume the
fast playjng In the outfield he did
early in the season.

SOM FACTS ABOUT THE ALLOT-
ING OF LANDS
The Cherekee Nf ro Will Sell His Al
lotment te a White Man Befere
Evan Selects It. Buy Hlus Sky
and Cat a Lawsuit.
Just at this time a cry has gone up
from Indian Territory that land
sharks are literally robbing the freed-
men of the Cherokee Nation of their
lands giving them about $100 for
property that Is worth 12.000. This
uni cry was ralsod two years ago
wlu n the Creek lands wero thrown
open to lease. One does not hear
an thing about leasing now. The
finds that while tho public thought
the land sharks wero robbing tho In-
dians the Indians wero skinning
whites on tho lease business every
day. This may also be truo of the
Cherokee freodmnn who soils his al-
lotment to tho white for ?10U before
knnv.-sOs- "Tga-gnshopgn etaoln the
he oven selects his allotment or
knows what part of the nation ho Is
going to Take It.
it Is the same class of speculators
tsklng these unknown allotments
that were nuiipant to get leases. They
not only buy blue sky but are taking
a good cuance of getting a lawsuit
with It. The snro and conservative
Investor buys land in the Creek Na-
tion where every Indian and negro
has a patent to his allotment or from
the very few Cherokces who have pa-
tents or cefTTTieutos of allotment.
They buy tho land cheap but It Is a
fSTr consideration when cue stops to
consider that tho land though won-
derfully rich Is new and raw.
Tho cause of the cry of "land
sharks" In the Cherokee Nation lies
Ijjjhe fact that few individuals and
land linns have cancel vwl 'the idea
of using the negroes Insatiable greod
for ready money tc buy whatever he
may get for an allotment. It Is a

suoudlugly small. A freodman gets
a certificate of citizenship and this Is
satisfactory evidence Hint sooner or
later he will get an allotment. He
does not know whether It will bo In J
the oil fields tho rich prairie or thu '
irxmntalns of the Cherokee Nntlon I
Neither doei the land man who Is
willing to tii:.'. Accordingly the laml
man figures low t It all. It takes
two' or throe men to close a denl
with a negro. Therefore the buyer
has boosters sometimes whites some-
times negroes. Theso boosters got
$5.00 each fir every willing freudmaii
they bring In and close a deal with.
The regulation form Is to pay the
freodman $25 cash on tho trade and
Ibat Is what usually eldses the trade
and when he has selected his allot-
ment and got a patent to it he l to
receive anywhere from $60 to $loo
more. After the deal Is cloood the
