In a Washington dispatch da
Nov. 80th, is the following: "Secretary
Smith holds that townsite locations in
Oklahoma must have valid Improve-
ments; that the certificate of location
by the land officers is only prima facie
evidence and not good against the
sworn evidence of witnesses. There
are many cases which the secretary ex
pects to dispose of immediately.

The cotton crop of Oklahoma last
season was the best since its.settle-

much of it is being marketed.
Oklahoma will be admitted to the
Union at no distant day, and it will

publican state. The young territory's
future is a most promising one. - K. C.
The standard joke by the newspaper
fraternity in Kansas just now is that
everybody is after Lewelling and even
the liens are laying for him. The Gov-
ernor sells eggs at Wichita.
Down in tlie "strictly agricultural
region" of the territory they are sweat-
ing great gobs of despair and praying
for ruin. Herein Woodward county,
where the people do not depend alto-
gether on farming, the case is vastly
different. The calf crop never fails!
Some shrewd fellow who evidently is
the owner of an orange grove says,
"The latest cure for the whiskey bal.it
is oranges, eaten as follows: One be-
fore breakfast, another at 11 a. in., 3
p. m. and 0 p. m. and another just be-
fore retiring for the night. It is
claimed that the above will cure in-
ebriety in its worst form."
The fellow who flist got off that gag
about "hope springs eternal in the hu-
man breast," had Comanche county
Kansas right In his mind's eye as
evidenced by the following from last
week's Coldwater Enterprise:
There is considerable wheat in the
ground in Comanche county. It repre-
sents money and labor. It needs
moisture. Ihere is moisture in rain
and snow, ltain and snow come from
the clouds. All we need is the clouds,
rain or snow, and the moisture; give
us these and the wheat will do the rest.
It is rather a compliment to Ameri-
can newspapers that, though published
thousands of miles from the scene of
the Armenian horrors, their accounts
of those wholesale murders are so
graphic and their comments upon them
so forceful that the Turkish govern-
ment has issued an edict prohibiting
the importation of any American news-
paper into Turkey.

entire suit woven from spider s silk.
It is more glossy and brilliant than
any other, iu natural color, when
woven, being a rich golden. It is ca-
pable of being dyed to any color de-
sired. It is stated by an eminent en-
tomologist that he took 8,480 yards of
silk from one spider, or about two
miles. It has always been a matter of
surprise that these insects are not
raised for their silk. They are much
more easilv raised and taken care of
than silk-worms and are capable of
producing more silk,"—Inter Ocean.

they produce. It says: We let our

our hides and buy rope; we raise dogs
and buy hogs; we let our manure go to
waste and buy guano; we grow weeds
and buy vegetables and brooms; we

The Chicago papers are now going
after the private town of Pullman with
an amount of euergy that should result
in something being accomplished.
After showing that Pullman has
streets that do not belong to the pub-
lic. and that the entire town is simply
an undivided part of a seel Ion of land
used by the company for the extortion
of rents in the way of house room, gas,
truck stores, water, etc., iu order to get
back whatever wages are paid its em-
ployes, the Chicago Timet concludes:
"When Pullman becomes a menace to
the public health as well as a nuisance
generally it is time for the public to
step iu with its power of eminent do
main and destroy the uu-American,
exclusive and unauthorized character
of Pullman's private town."
The Curse of Contraction
Daily, almost hourly, the horrible
curse of contraction is being felt as the
lack of money to do business, to meas
ure wages, or even buy the bare neces-
saries of life becomes more and more
apparent. The ghoulish satisfaction
taken by the money lenders as they
take in valuable property after prop-
erty, is only rivaled by the piteous
moans of the unfortunate who is turn-
ed out to starve or condemned to a life
of penury by the cursed financial sys-
tem of our fair land.
Everywhere we see the staggering
wrecks of men who are capable of the
enjoyment of life and whose lives
would willingly be volunteered in the
defense of their country, and yet who
are driven to rags and degradation by
the heavy hand of contraction of our
Don't tell us it Is the fault of these
individuals. You know better than
that. The world is not overcrowded, if
men who have the power would not
selfishly take advantage of unjust laws.
What then is the remedy? The ex-
pansion of the volume of money where-
by all men may be given employment
aud the homes of America may again
be lighted by the smile of prosperity.
That something must be done to re-
lieve the awful coudition of affairs is
universally admitted. That It will
burst out in revolution more bloody
than that which made the streets of
