The following' prosperity arti-
cle appeared in the Ponca City
Oklahoma has practically com-
pleted her most bountiful harvest
and as her farmers haul the
binder from the yellow lields of
stubble and turn to view the long
rows of golden grain in the shock
instinctively they begin mentally
speculating upon the value of the
crop. The further the specula-
tion proceeds, the firmer the con-
viction becomes that Oklahoma,
as an agricullural region is dis-
tinctly in a class by itself and
wholly without a peer under the
The uniform size of a farm in
Oklahoma is 160 acres under
cultivation. In the wheat belt,
which embraces at lea-t one-half
of her total area, 100 acres of
wheat mean> an average ot 2.-
500 bushels, worth on the market I
sixty cents per bushel. It re-
quires no adept >n matl:ematics 1
to demonstrate that the value of I
the wheat crop alone is sub-
stantially *1,500. Any Oklaho-i
ina farmer of intelligence and in-
dustry will make the remaining
sixty acres of his farm produce
enough corn, oats, fruit, garden
truck and livestock to sustain the
family and pay incidental ex-
penses, thereby netting him in
profits the value of the wheat
crop. Indeed, it is the rule,
rather than the exceplion that
the profits are added to from the
value ol the diversified products,
the aggregate of which runs in-
to big money in many cases.
In consequence of this product-
ivity of soil, accessibility ot
market, cheapness of farm land
and prudence in management, it
is no uncommon thing for the
Oklahoma farmer to clear enough
in one seasou's farming to pay
for his farm. The second season
enables him to build a comforta-
ble home and otherwise improve
his place and the third sees him
starting a bank account which
grows and multiplies as the years
Oklahoma is undouetedly the
only agricultural region in the
country in which phenomenal
wealth bui'ding of this character
is possible. It would be strange
indeed, if her farm lands were
not advancing steadily in value,
but they are still in reach of the
average amount ol pluck, perse-
verance and energy. They offer
a field of investment, either for
home or speculation, whose pro-
mise is excelled anywhere under
It is these conditions and these
possibilities which make Oklaho-
ma essentially the young man

home of hope and the field of

THE CAPITOL (NA-
TIONAL BANK OF
ON BALANCES AND
C. A. Shelton, who resided for
years in this vicinity, but who
has recently been working a lease
about 12 miles north of Okemah,
in the Creek Nation, made a lucky
strike last week. While plowing
near a spring in an old bottom
field on his lease, he turned up an
old fashioned Indian clay pot and
a small and badly rust-eaten tin
can. In them, on examination,
he discovered sixty silver half
dollars, one dated 1825, one 1826,
and the balance 1855, 1856, 1857
and 1858. It is quite evident
that the coins had been placed
there at least as long ago as the
civil war. The field has been in
cultivation fifty years or more,
but deep plowing has only recent-
ly struck the B. I. T., and it is
to be hoped that Mr. Shelton's
good luck may stimulate others
to turn the earth over instead of
simply scratching it.—Altruist, j

Welch was killed Sunday after- -'no.2.) , .THE
noon by Jim Neal, a youth six-
teen years of age. Mrs. Johnson,
it seems, is a white woman living!
on a lease and owning some cat-
tle. It is thought that this fact
made trouble between her ana the
neighbors, especially the* Neals.
The young man was at her house 1
Sunday morning is the absence;
of her son and daughter. In the
afternoon she was left alone
again, her chilren going to
church and Sunday school.
Young Neal went to her house
and shot her twice killing her.
Then he went home and told his |
father and a neighbor what he
had done. His father borrowed
$5 of a friend, gave it to a young
man who walked to Chetopa and
took a train for parts unknown.
Meantime t'ue body of the woman
lay on the ground and the hogs
mangled the corps horribly. The
daughter returned home first and
made the gruesome discovery.
The son took the remains to
North Missouri for burial. Deputy
Gilstrap went to Welch and
brought the father and a younger
brother and C. E. Myer, to Vinita
for examination by the commiss-
ioner. Every effort will be made
to capture the fugitive. It is said
that the killer claims self defense,
