SUNSET MAGAZINE FOR DEC.
The December number of the
Sunset Magazine is out. Its
bright cover of gold and red is
attractive enough to make one
pause and wonder at the liberal-
ity of the publishers. Hut, wait
until you look within. The first
thing in the book to catch your
eye is a series of 16 full page il
lustrations in half-tone color
work; a triumph of the printing
art, depicting California winter
scenes, although they remind us
of summer. Any one of the 16
color pages seems worth the
price of the magazine for fram
ing. The entire magazine is pro-
fusely illustrated, and there’s
lots of good reading, too. The
beginning of a serial, “The Long
Chance,” by Peter B. Kyne, a
typical western story. “Malon-
ey’s Caribbean Days,” by James
1>. Connolly. “Seratina,” by
by our old typo friend Will Rob
inson, who, under “Impressions
of a Tenderfoot,” depicted life
in the Texas Panhandle and the
Pecos Valley in a series of news-
paper articles. “An Understudy
of the Stork," by Ben Blow.
“The Shepherd who Worshipped
Last,” by Helen Raley. “The
Ransom of Papahue,” by Mary-
land Allen. These are some of
the fiction; but there are a lot of
other articles that are interest-
ing and instructive.
The Sunset Magazine is one of
the best magazines of the year,
and the price is only 15c a copy
or $1.50 per year. Published at
San Francisco, Calif. Subscrip-
tions received at this office.
Another Killing at Shawnee
Sam Richeson, a negro porter
on the R. I. returned to his home
in Shawnee Saturday night un
expected, and found his friend
and co-laborer, Andy McKnight,
occupying the berth reserved
for himself. Thereupon he pro-
ceeded to shoot- Mr. Andy’s
head full of holes.
After the shooting Richeson
gave himself into custody of the
law and was held without bond
pending his preliminary hearing.
The two men were negro
porters on R. I. trains running
west, and Me Knight supposed
Richeson to be somewhere be-
yond Amarillo when, on account
of illness he was doubling back
toward home and trouble.
Richeson and McKnight are
said to have had trouble before
this over Richeson’s wife.
McKnight died Sunday night.
Corn Pone Jackson and the S. P. through with him he’s so tame
C. B. L. he’d march right up to Shorty’s
- | cannon an’ never bat his eye.
Mr. Editor, you done us a heap l Last Satterdy we had a nice
o’wrong when you printed that class alT lined up ready to take
artikkel about our society bein' the first degree but Jim Woods
. . ■ m » -» i t • l
ready to nishyate a big class.
Jim Woods an’ Shorty Maize has
been watchin’ us so close sence
that we can’t get that class in
seven rods o’ the wagon yard.
They’re all afeard o’ that cannon
1 want to tell youall though, it
sure is a nice ceremony, that
nishyation business. We got a
high-muck-a-muek we call King
Louis the Crosseye; some of ’em
an’ Shorty had to go an’ spoil
the hole works. They taken the
spunk all outen the class.
This is such a nice, educative
work what we got, I’m just
going to give youall a sample o’
the way it starts off.
The candydate is blindfolded
an' hog-tied, in which condishun
he is led to the gate of the lodge.
There he is asked from within
the following questions:
want to call him Louis ’leventh, Q --“Who comes here?”
but T say crosseye’s right cause A—“A poor blind bootlegger
its writ that way in the book ’o who seeks proteekshun from
directions, Louis XI. If XI aint the high sheriff an’ his minions.”
crosseye then I don’t know noth Q -“Where’nblazes did you come
in’ about brands.
Then they’s a notlier fellow we
call Charles the Bold, an’ begets
a lot more fellows he calls Nobles
together an “raises a muss. Oh, lor?
I tell you, its great. You sec A—“That I might become pro-
this is all acted out to show the tishyunt in evading the watchful
nishyates how weall got to stand eye of the new sherruf an’ bt
• . . . .V. niAnll i n tl WV *1 » I ill-.
A—“I came from St. Johns, Kan-
Q—'“Wattonell’d you come here
together for our rites.
•What we do to the candydate
come a master in the art of dis-
pensing booze, whereby I may
is a plenty, too. When we get! travel in the Seminole and adja-
cent counties an’ earn the wages
of a master bootlegger and bet-
ter support myself while the
county supports my wife an’
0 -“Is the candydate properly
prepared, and has he been out-
lawed by the courts?”
“Then let him wait till I con-
vey his request to his majesty,
King Louis the Crosseye, and
his answer is returned.”
After a little bit the fellow in-
side comes back an’ says:
“It is his -majesty’s orders
that the candydate be admitted
and received in due form. Let
him advance and be accelerated
by the pressure of the point of a
corkscrew applied to the place
under his coat tails said to be
nearest to a bootlegger’s heart.”
Now, what they do after they
gel him inside I’m going to leave
for a nother time. Its sure a
plenty, an’the oath of a Colum-
bus Night is nothing compared
to what a member of the Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Bootleggers swears to.

To Our Debtors:
This is to notify you that

notes and accounts will be forced

and placed with an attorney for
collection. As all our notes pro
vide for attorney fees 1 will bo

ByP. W. McKay.
Our old friend, Corn Pone
Jackson, is getting a little mulish
of late. We find it hard to get,
anything for print from him.
We want to hear about the initia-
1 tion ceremony of the new socie-
ty; but Pone says, “Shaw! Them
folks is tired readin’ my foolish-
ness,” and we can’t get a defi-
nite promise of any more copy
from him. Perhaps if some of
our readers would drop a postal
to him assuring him that they
would like to hear more from
him, he may be induced to finish
telling us about the initiation.
Just drop a card to Corn Pone
Jackson, Care of the Progress,
Asher, Okla., if you want to hear
any more from him. You can
sign the card or not; just as you
please; but if he doesn’t get the
cards the chances are we don’t
get the yarn.
