To Hold a Camp Meeting. —
Those affirming thai immortality
(life after physical death) is capable
of scientific proof, who call them-
selves spiritualists, will hold a camp
meeting at Mountain Park, Okla., be-
ginning August 23, continuing over

Want Name for New State. —
Territorial Superintendent L. VV.
Jlnxtcr has received a letter from the
editor of a farm paper asking that he
suggest a nickname for the new state
of Oklahoma. The paper Is carrying
out a plan to solicit appropriate names
from prominent men in the new state
and elsewhere and then conduct a
voting contest by mail.
Corn Is Already in Silk. —
At Rocky, Oklahoma, harvest
weather has been ideal and wheat and
oats are all in shock in prime condi-
tion. The acreage of all crops is
greatly iu excess of any former year.
Fully 85 per cent of the land around
Rocky is In crop. Corn is in silk and
cotton is making squares, fully two
weeks earlier than common.
To Make Cement at Fairview. —
The $r 0,000 gypsum plant seems t >
l.e assured for Fairview. All the
stock for the enterprise but a small
block has been subscribed. The Held
for such an enterprise could not be
improved upon. Thousands of tons
of the raw material will be almost
within a stone's throw of the com-
pany's works. With the Immense re
servoir operations of Uncle Sam on
hand throughout the various Irriga-
tion districts, the consumption of ce-
ment is something wonderful to con-
template. The full output will be
taken almost from the day the plant
Two More Normal Schools. —
1 j. VV. llaxter, territorial superin-
tendent of schools, says that a move-
ment is on foot to establish two addi-
tional normal schools in the eastern
portion of the new state as soon as
the public institutions are located,
one to be known as the Northeastern
and the other the Southeastern Nor-
mal. Claremore is a candidate for the
Northeastern Normal and it is under-
stood that a number of other Indian
Territory towns, including Tahlequah,
Broken Arrow, Vinita and Coweta,
will be candidates for the school. No
candidate has yet appeared for the
Not Later than October 15. —
The many differences of opinion as
to how late the election of constitu-
tion delegates may be delayed are
dun to a lack of acquaintance with
the statehood act. After the district-
ing boards have finished their work.
Gov. Front?., of Oklahoma, and Judge
Clayton, senior judge of Indian Terri-
tory, must issue the proclamation for
the election by October 15, setting
out the apportionment of delegates
made by the redisricting boards, lie-
cause of this the work must be fin-
ished and communicated to the offi-
cials before that time. The election
of constitutional delegates cannot be
held later than the middle of Decem-
ber. Electors must be citizens of the
United States, or of one of the Indian
tribes in one of the two territories;
must be 21 years old; and have re-
sided in Oklahoma on Indian Terri-
tory for six months preceding the
election, and thirty days in the pre-

' Many Homeseekers Gathering. —
The greater part of the business
pertaining to the opening to settle-
ment of the public lands in Southwest
Oklahoma will be done through the
Lawton land office. Four hundred and
seventy-five thousand of the 605.000
acres are in the Lawton district. The
land office at El Reno will handle the
opening of 30,000 acres, which lie in
the El Reno district. Every prepara-
tion is bi'ing made to take care of the
enormous crowd of homeseekers
which is Increasing each day. The
land office floor space is to be enlarg-
ed to better accommodate the patrons
during the rush.
Stock in the Big Pasture. —
In violation of the law, some cat-
tlemen are holding their stock in the
big pasture, though their leases on
the land expired some time ago. Com-
plaints have been made by the agri-
cultural lessees to Agent J. P. Black-
man at Anadarko that nearly B.oOO
cattle are trespassing upon the leas-
ed land. Agent Blackmail ordered
his sub-agents to round up the cattle
and ascertain who they belong to and
just how long they have been there-

there are now nearly 14,000 acres of
vacant land in this district.
Wenner Beat Them at It. —
By prompt action on the part of
the school land board of Oklahoma
Territory the greater portion of a mil-
lion acres of vacant land has been
saved to the new state. Secretary
Fred L Wenner, of the territorial
school land board, returned from
Woodward last week, and Assist-
ant Secretary Cunningham came in
from Lawton at the same time. Both
have been making the rounds of the
various land offices of Oklahoma dur-
ing the past week, and have filed up-
on about 1.000,000 acres of public
lands, which, according to the provis-
ions of the statehood bill, will be s t
aside for the use of the colleges and
universities of the new state, if the
hoard had delayed action until a la-
ter date, most of this land would have
been taken up by immigrants from
other states who have already begun
to flock into Oklahoma with a view
of taking up all the public land that
had not been previously filed unon.
The school land department thus has
the distinction of having carried out
the first official business of the new
state. I am inclined to think at this
time that the school land board will
not lease any of thh land until the
state has been fin!. organized." said
Secretary Wenner, ro that the ques-
tion of its leasi ig or disposition can
be taken up at once In- the first leg-
islature and disposed of separately
from the other school lands of the

portion relating to New Mexico and
Arizona. The governors of the tcrri-
| lories desire copies of the bill for dis-
tribution in order that the people may
become well informed on the provis-
ions of the statehood act. and the re-
solution provides that they shall be

Secretary Filson Has Returned. —
Secretary Charles H. Filson re-
turned from Washington, whir- he
went about ten clays ago to consult
with officials of the treasury depart-
ment regarding the handling of the
funds for the constitutional conven-
tion. for which he is made disburs-
ing agent, lie* reports that the only
thing which any of those official can
talk about at the present time is the
civil appropriation bill or the dc fi-
eiency appropriation. The comptrol-
er of the* currency had not yet parsed
upon the* financial features of the
statehood bill and was unable to give
any opinion in regard to them.
Land Values Increase Rapidly. —
Since the announcement that all
the lands remaining vacant in the
territory had been homesteaded by
the governor for the benefit of educa-
tional institutions of the new state,
landowners have tightened their grip
on their holdings and homeseekt rs
who had intended filing on vacant
government lands in Beaver and .oth-
er counties are now seeking to pur-
chase homes from the owners. The
belief is expre ssed that within a year
land values all over the* territory will
be increased from 25 to 50 per cent
em account <>f this provision in the
stat .'hood bill which absolutely takes
from government homestead entry ev-
ery acre of remaining land.

ker stated that more than 300 infants

quest of the war department five
delegates of the* Apache tribe*, includ-
ing Chief Geronimo, will go to Wash-
ington in their interest. They are
ready to go and awaiting further no-
tice from the department as to the
time they are wanted. Chief Parker
of the Comanche, will accompany the'
Apache s and it is thought will be able'
to assist them greatly. Chief Parker
has declined several invitat'ons to
participate in Independence day cele-
brations. He says: "I will not go
on exhibition like cattle at a county
fair. They will point at nie a.id say.
'There is Quanah Parker.'"

ON RACE TIPSTERS.
By HUGH McHUGH
[GEORGL V. HOBART!
There We Sat.
One day last week I was beating the
ballast up Broadway when Pete, the
Piker, declared himself in and began
to chatter about cinches at the track.
"Get the saw, Pete, and cut it," I
said; "it's many a long day since I've
been a Patsy for the ponies. Once they
stung me so hard that for months my
bank account looked like a porous
plaster, so I took the chloroform treat-
ment and now you and your tips to the
discards, my boy, to the discards!"
Pete isn't really a native of Dope-
villo-em-the-r'eii' e, but he likes to
have people think he knows the racing
And lie does backwards.
In real life he's a theatrical manager
and his name on the* three-sheets is
TMer J. Badtime, the Human Salary
In theatrical circles they call him
the impresario with the sawdust koko
and the split-second appetite.
Every time Pete poses as an angel
for a troupe if you listen hard you can
hear the fuse blow out somewhere be-
tween Albany and Schenectady.
From time to time over 2,107 actors
have had to walk home on account of
Pete's cold feet.
Pete can develop a severe case of
frosted pave pounders quicker than
any angel that ever had to dig for the
Pete Is an Ace all right—the Ace of
His long suit when he isn't dishing
out his autobiography is to stand

Pete is what I would call a plunger
with the lid on.
He never bets more than two dollars
on a race and even then he keeps wish-
ing he had it back.
Pete had me nailed to the corner of
Broadway and 42d s'reet for about ten
minutes when fortunately Bunch Jef-
ferson rolled up in his new kerosene
cart and I needed no second invitation
to hop aboard and give Pete the happy
"Whither away, Bunch?" I asked,
as the Bubble began to do a Togtx
through the fatte t streets in the town.
"I thought I'd run up and get the
girl* ml t;i!:e 'em for a spin out to the
15 -Imont Park races," Bunch came
"Did you telephone them?" I in-
"No, but I told Alice this morning
that if I got through at the office in
time I'd take her to the track. We can
call for Peaches on th" way across
town," was Bunch's programme.
"Whisper, Bunch!' i suggested:
"let's do the* selfish gag for once and
leave the wives at home. I haven't be
a nickel on a skate for tw > years, but
my little black man lw.s the steering
wheel to-day and I'm going to fall off

on our way to the track, after having
sent notes to our wives that important
business kept us chained to the post of
duty, but if they would meet us at the
Hotel Astor at seven p. m. we'd all
Bunch had pust tied his Bubble to a
tree at the track an I was in the art of
giving it a long cool drink of garoiine
and some crac ked* oats, when Flash
Harvey bore on us and made a touch
for the turn-out.
"Say. Bunch!" chirped Flash, "lend
me the choo-choo for half an hour,
will you? I hi ve ray sister and a
dream cousin of oars from Hartford
here* t4iis aft. and I'm eager to show
them how 1 can pound a public road
with a rowdv-cart. I'll take goo 1 care?
of the machine an 1 be back In tw
hour*, honest, Bumh!"
Flash being an old friend of ours
Bunch had to fall for the spiel and
loaned him the Bubble fort with.
Ten minutes later we were so busy
listening to the sure-things falling
from the eager tongues of the various
friends we met that we quite forgot all
about Flash and the busy barouche.
The first cinoh-builder we fell over
wa/J Harry McDonough, the inventor of
the. stingless mosquito now in use on
Ills Jersey farm.
Harry has the mosquito game clown
so fine that he's going to take a double
sextette of tnem into vaudeville next
He has trained these twelve skeets
to sing "Zobia Grassa," and A1 Hol-
brook has promised to teach them a
Harry offered us fotir winners in the
first race and two cigars.
He told us if we lost to smoke the
cigars carefully and we'd forget our
troubles and our names; but if we won
we could use the cigars as firecracker?.
Then we ran across Jeff D'Angells,
the conjposer of the new tune now
played on the automobile horns.
Jeff hadn't picked out a hor e to win
any race because his loyalty to sneeze-
wagons is so intense that he won't
even drink a horse's neck.
He explained that he only came to
the race track to show the horses his
smoke-buggy and make them shiver.
George Yates, the inventor of the
machinery for removing sunburn from
pickles, was there and he tried to pre-
sent us with a sure winner in the third
A little later on we discovered that
the horse Yates was doing a rave over
had been dead for four years and that
the card from which he was lifting his
dope was the programme of the meet
at Sheepshead in 189G.
Some kind and thoughtful strang r
had lifted fifty cents from George's
surplus and in return had stung him
with an ancient echo of the pittypat-s.
Our next adventure was with Joe
Miron, the famous horse trainer and
inventor of the only blue mare in cap-
tivity at Elmhurst.
"Say, why didn't I see you guys be-
fore the first race; I had a plush-cov-
ered pipe!" yelled Joe.
"I had that race beat to a stage
wait," Joe went on, enthu?i'stlcilly
"Why, all you had to do was play
'The Goblin Man' to win and 'Mur-
derallo* for a place—it was just like
getting money from the patent medi-
"How much did you win, Joe"" I ln-
"Who, me!" Joe came back. "Why
I didn't get here in time to pi c ^ a be*,
i drove over from Elmhurst and the*
blue mare burst a tire. But, say, I've
got a mother's darling in the third
race! Oh, it's a la<V'bug for certain!
You guys play 'Perhaps' to win and
you'll go home looking like Pierp
Morgan after a busy day. It can't
lose, thi« clam can't! Say, that horso
'Perhaps' wears gold-plated overshoes
and it can kick more track behind it
than any ostrich you ever see! Why,
it's got hall-bearing castors on the
feet and it wears a naphtha engine
in the forward turret. Get reckless
with the coin, boys, and go the limit,
and if the track happens to cave in
and it does lose, I'll drag you down
to Elmhurst behind the blue mare and
make the suction pump in the back-
yard do an imitation of Walter Jones
singing 'Captain Kidd' with the bum
Joe was so much in earnest about
it that Bunch and I put up fifty on
"Perhaps" and waited.
We are still waiting.
"Perhaps" may have been a good
horse but he had a bael memory and
never could recollect which end of the
track was the proper place to finish
Joe must have left for Elmhur-a im.
mediately after the race because he
failed to answer roll call.
Then we ran across Dave Torrence,
the famous inventor of the disappear
ing trump ?o much used by pinochle
When Dave began to dope 'em u-it
for us Bunch and I hid our pocket-
books in our shoes.
There were tears in Bunch's eyes,
but I was busy looking for a rock.
"Here's a good one," Dave e-.ijest-
er; "listen to this one, 'Easy Money'
out of 'Life Insurance' by 'Director.'
And here's a good one, 'Chauffeur' out
of 'Automobile' by 'Policeman!' Do
you care for those?"
"Here are some more pea< herinos,"
Dave went on, relentlessly, "here Is
"Golf Player' out of 'Business*
'Mosquito,' and here's another good
one, 'Eternal Daylights' out of 'Rus

"I guess that will hold me temporari-
