T. M. Concannon, of Idelah, brought
in from his faint yesterday, a sample of
corn which would make the farmers of
Kansas, Iowa or even old Illinois open
their eyes in wander. It was a couple
of stalks over seven feet high and as
thick as the wrist of an abje bodied
man. its color was that of luminous
greeu which corn takes on when it is
its thriftiest ami means business, and
altogether it was such a sample as to
create enthusiasm in the beholder.
Mr. Concannon, who is a man of un-
questionable veracity, says he has a
field of 80 acres of such corn and that
these stalks were nothing hut a fair
sample of the crop. The old gentleman
overflows with enthusiam regarding
the country and the prospects, and says
he never saw anything like it. Oppo-
site his farm is the lifty acre wheat
lit Id of J. li. Jones, which is the won-
der of the country. It stands so thick
on the ground that a hat thrown on it
anywhere in the Held will be held up
and it is feared when it is cut the re
mains of several persons will be found
who wandered into the wheat and
could not find their way out. lie and
Doug. Porter have it in partnership,
and will cut it next week. (Jood
judges say it will go 40 bushels to the
The Cherokee commission will pro-
ceed to Wellston today or tomorrow to
begin negotiations with the Kickapoos
The commissioners believe they will be
successful in their negotiations, and so
do a great many others who have
talked with the Indians; but those
thoroughly acquainted with the Kicka-
poo character say there can be no tell-
ing what they will do. The Kicka-
poos they say delight in deceiving peo-
ple as to their tribal affairs. It is
thought the money they see their
neighbors, the Sac and Fox Indians,
getting will stimulate the allotment
sentiment. The troop of cayalry which
is to act as the commissioners' escort
arrived from Ft. Reno yesterday.
The Canadian river at this point has
been higher the past week than for
many years. Much damage to crops is
reported ylong the ugly stream. The
railroad washout just below the Santa
Fe shops grew to immense proportions
Saturday and several times the track
had to be replaced around the caving
bank. Sunday immense crowds were
attracted thither to watch the construc-
tion crew repair the damaged road,
and until the gap was replaced Tues-
day a transfer had to be made from all
passing trains. The track north of the
station was only slightly damaged, but
it required quick and hard work to
save it.—[l'urcell Topic.
Mr. (\ A. McNabb received a letter
from lie v. A. V. Francis yesterday
which stated that his mother died on
Sunday at 2:30 p. m. II,- started for
Itenfro, Canada, with the body, in
company with his brother, it being the
mother's wish that she be buried at
her old home. Mr. Francis will return
next week. From the Muscatine Jour-
nal we learn that Mr. Francis' mother
was sixty-seven years old at the time
of her death. Her home was at Ken-
fro, Canada, but she had been visiting
for a few months with a son at Musca-
tine, Iowa, where she died.
The Noah Rich case has not been
acted upon yet. Judge Clark has
given him all the time necessary to se-
cure aftidavits for a new trial. He has
filed four or five affidavits, one or two
of which exactly corroborate the state-
ments of Itich, and the others are in-
tended to impeach the testimony of the
governments witnesses On the other j
hand the government lias introduce'!
more than a dozen affidavits to
strengthen the side of the prosecution.

that the evidence does not show that
