PERFECTING PLANS FOR PERPET-
UATION OF INSTITUTION.
It Will Take Rank ao the Greatest of
Indian Orphan Homes and Schools.
Larue Tract of Land Reserved
From Allotment for Its Aid
Miukogoo. I. T. March II.- Plans
nro now bring perfected for the per-
pctuatlou ot tho Murrow Indian Or-
phans' Homo east of Atoka. It will
bo tho greatest of Indian orphan
homes and hcIiooIb nnd thu plan un-
ilor which It wim founded Is unlquo
Hov. J. H. Murrow came to Indian
Territory ns a Baptist minister In
th cenrly settlement of thin country
by tho Indians. Ho In ono of tho pa-
triarchs of tho country. Yearn ago
by nrivnte subscription assistance
from his church nnd personal energy
lij established an orphan homo for
Indian children nt Atoka. This was
a small Institution and Its existence
was precarloim. It was n school as
well as a home howovor and many
nn Indian orphan found shelter there
nnd was started upon n useful life.
Hut Hov. Murrow saw that when tho
dissolution of tho trlbcH came that
thcro would bo perhaps hundreds of
parontlefis ludlan children left with
uo one to guard them or tholr proper
ty. Ho conceived tho Idea of estab
lishing n nallonnl orphans' homo for
thoso waits. Tho best ho could do
however was to get tho consent of
tho Indian chiefs nnd the secretary
ot the Interior to withhold from al
lotment a largo tract of land sur
roundlnK tho school which was then
looated several mllon east of Atoka
and tho promlao that at somo future
time under an unusunl plan thin Inna
mlght bocoma tho property ot tho
school nnd be used for Its porpotua-
Uon. This plan was to allow citizens
of tho Choctaw and Chlcknsaw nntlons
who desired to donate land to tho
homo to select fractional parts of
tholr allotments in this land reserved
from the school. Hundreds of them
did this. In many Instances when a
oltlzon selectH an allotment ho finds
which his land comes ho Is entitled
to five ten or twolvo acres more. This
fractional allotment was quite fre-
quently donated to tho school. The
land thuB acquired to this dato
amounts to 2.300 acres. It Is quite
. nrobable that boforo tho allotmout mat.
ters of tho two nations nro closed
thla nmount of land will bo lncronscd
to S.000 ncros. If it Is then tho homo
nlll bo able to support at least COO In
dlnn children nnd care for them until
tfcoy havo vccolvod the rudiments ot
Undor the agroomunt of the ohlors
and tUo secretary of the Interior when
this plan was ngrood to tho school
will be opon to Indlau children from
nil tho five tribes nftor the uissoiu
tlon of tribal govornmotit. A provls
ion In tho Curtis bill will enablo pat
ent to Issue conveying this land to
Mnrrow's Orphans' Home will bo
pro-emlnently nn industrial school. It
Is tho theory of Mr. Murrow tnat tho
Indian child should HIT taught how to
work intelligently and get tho beat ro
suits ftom tho land which tho govern
mnnt lins glvon him in splto of him
self. To this end tho largo trnct of
land which tho school owns will bo
put to that uso which will enablo tho
children to work most effectively nnd
got tho best roturns. Tho first branch
f in.iiistrv which will bo established
will bo a largo poultry farm. Tno
children tako great Interest In this
nnd they can also do most of tho work.
It Is a very lucrntlvo "branch of farm
ing too. A groat tract ot lanu wm
bo divided oft nnd n poultry farm will
bo started under tho direction of an
nmnrinnppii noultry farmer In auui'
'tlon to" this there will bo ncres
small fruits as woll as largo orchards
f all kinds of fruit treos. A part ot
' tho farm will also bo put to thoso
nrons which thrlvo best in this en
timto. An nttompt will also bo made
to demonstrate what crops pay best
