COLONY. WASHITA CO. OKLA., THURSDAY OCT. 14 1915
The Second Annual Indian Conference, Estes Park Colorado.
Through Tho Courtesy Of Tho Haskell Y. M. C. A. We Are Enabled To Give Our Readers This Picture.
There i»re four policies w hich have been assumed towards the American Indian in the history
of our country, and all of these attitudes are being held today, 'lhese four positions are, Kill
him,” for the only good Indian is a dead one; ‘‘J.et him alone,” for the law of the survival of the
fittest is the law of God; ‘‘Use him,’’ for the romance and picturesqueness < f his history, customs,
and superstitutions are invaluable to art, science, education, and entertainment, and his property
w ill fall into the hands of the white men sooner or later anyway ; ‘‘Serve him,” for this is the will of
God as revealed in the Bible, supremely in the teachings and in the example of Jesus Christ.
The supreme need of every individual and of every people on the face of the earth is the need
of Jesus Christ. The above picture shows one method being used to supply this paramount need in
the life of the Indian of North America. Once fevery year delegates are sent from.our Indian schools
to the mountains of Colorado to receive visions i f usefulness and to gain power to make these visions
realities. Here they live for ten days surrounded by the most inspining mountain scenery in this
country. Here they associate daily with two bundled and fifty < f the finest men selected from the
Universities and Colleges of the Middle-West. Daily they hear addresses made by gfeat Christian
men of national and international reputations. In private ronfe re 1 res held every morning Indian
problems are thoroughly discussed by the students from the view point of the gospel and under the
supervision of such authorities as Rev. Dr Sherman Coolidpe, President of the Society of American
Indians; liev. Robert D. Hall, International Secretary of Indian work in North America; McKinley
Warren, Y. M. C. A. Secretary of Haskell; Rev. G. A. Watermulder of Winnebago; and Mrs. Walter
C. Roe. Rev. Henry Roe Cloud and Rev. G. Elmer E Lindguist all vitally interested in the Mission
at Colony and in this community, and all now connected with the Roe Institute at Wichita, Kansas.
Tho pictures ofall those named you will find in the cut above. In the upper left hand corner you i
will see the Indian delegate from Colony, Theodore Haurv, one of the most progressive young Arnpa-,
lines who is leading "his people to the light and the life of the new day of honorable eitizenship in our
community, in out country, and in the Kingdom of God.

Notes and Hills Hedlseotllted .
This old world of ours seems to
be a very contrary old creature.
Only a very short time ago, all
the world had a mania for peace
conferences, Hague tribunals,
arbitration, disarmament, peace
treaties, world’s congresses, etc
and all this right up to the break-
ing out of the greatest and awfull
eat war the world lias ever known.
Now all the world seems to have
a mania for war, and all the talk
isof coalitions, aliances, offensives
defensives, air cruft, submarines,
ammunitions, gnnr, war loans,
etc. By the rule of contraries,
does it mean peace?

Reasons Why YOu Should Buy National Stoves.
They are built in one of the largest .Stove factories in the
,United states, ut (Juincy 111.
Our Stoves are built and sold direct by the factory and not
by u Jobbing house.
A factory will build a better Stove under it’s own trade mark
one which they sell direct to the dealer, than they will build under
contract for a Jobber.
(jj) You save the Jobbers profit of 10 or 15 percent when buying
stove sold direct by the factory and get a better stove.
'I'he Excelsior Stove Company have a factory b.aiich at
Oklahoma City, where in case of necessity you can obtain any part
A of any f-tove they manufacture, at a very small cost and the min-
ty imunT frieght charge, thereby prolonging the life of a stove.
^1 We often have to order stove parts of other makes of stoves
Vfur opr customers, where the transportation charges arc
cost of the partH ordered.
We also have the Famous Majeatic Range*, The Perfection in Range Building.
