36 THE UNPARDONABLE SIN The sermon of the Rev A R Kase at the Methodist church Sunday forenoon on the Unpardonable Sin or Sin ofa8aTruth was an effort on his part which was a rare treat to those wh were so fortunate as to hear it The many truths brought out in the dis course should put the people to think ing before they have committed this great sin ere it is too late Rev Kasey is a deep thinker He goes down into the depths of his subjects and extracts therefrom thoughts that are a feast for the minds of men and women His delivery is peofect his logic and force of character are to I be admired by all The speaker during his sermon men tibneda terrible evif that is abroadin the country today=that is as a serpent trailing through our fair land It is the crime of destruction of unborn foff sPring by women and men in order f that they may have the pleasures of marital relations without any inconven ienne from same What will be the fate of such people in the final judg ment day Theblood they have sacri ficed will cry out against them It is perfectly right for a minister to bring these thoughts before the minds of the people and one who is possessed of sufficient courage and grit to do so is worthy of the praise and admiration of all good people F McL MUSIC HATH ITS CHARMS On last Thursday evening there was a young folks gathering at the home of Mr Junius Pickett on

Nash ville Railrord will begin work on the two lines in Kentucky running out from the Chesapeake Nashville line within a month and put forth the full force of the construction department to corn plete the two lines before next spring One of these lines is to run from Scotts yule or near that point to a point near Stanford Ky where it will connect with the line to Cincinnati The other will go from Hartsville Tenn dr near there to Jellico and beyond connect ing with the line to Virginia The object of the company is said to be to corn plete these lines as soon as possible so work can be started on the double track work from Gallatin through Nashville to Birmingham This work is expected to be done next summer and in order to do itthe com pany wants the Kentucky work out of fthe way so the full forces can be put on the main stem When this double track work is completed the crews will be taken back to Gallatin where they will begin at once building the second track to Louisville It is said that the Louisville Nashville Roadjwill do more construction work in the next two years than it has ever done in that length of time The officials of the company have given out no announcements of the com panys intentions but it is practically certain that the map of the Louisville c Nashville a year from now will look very different from what it does at present Nashville American COMMISSION

Territory I June 12 1906 Editor Newsy Some time ago I wrote a letter for the News describing Okla homa I shall try to write some thing about Indian Territory which you may print if it will be of interest to the many readers of your welcome paper The Indian Territory was ac quired from France in 1803 as a part of the Lousiana Purchase In 1834 a part of the Purchase was set apart by Congress for the home of Indian tribes who have given up their homes in other parts of the Union About onefourth of the Indians in the I United States now live in the Territory With them live many whites and nejroes who have been adopted by the Indians The Cherokees Creeks Choctaws Chickasaws and Seminoles are the most highly civilized They till the soil and raise cattle The Indian tribes have organized gov ernments and are educated hav ing a news paper published in their language The general surface of Indian Territory is that of a plain un dulating and furrowed by numer ous streams along most of which extend broad bottom lands and these gradually rise into hills or rolling prairies The total area of Indian Territory is 31400 square miles and is about equal in area to the con binedareas of Connecticut Mas sachuetts New Hamshire New Jersey and Rhode Island In 1900 there was a population of 400000 including the Indians which numbered 53000 The climate here is mild in winter and pleasantly tempered in summer by Gulf breezes the nights being always cool andre freshingThe is generally a rich dark decomposed sandstone fa cile to the plow The character of the soil is such that it retains moisture while the surface becoming dry and broken form a kind of mulching that not only prevents evaporation but yields theVmoisture beneath There has not been a year t of disaster for its crops though ther have been partial drouths and short yields of corn or other cerals at long intervals The fierce yet cheerful energy of the settlers the peculiar balm mess of the air the stimulating atitudes the stretch of sunlight hours the modernity of farming methods the wonderous blending of young settlers from every state in the Union all these are the causes which must have en tered into the swift transfiguration of this Territory for they are all here accenuated and en hanced by the proof that stares at you from the now greening farmlands and that hums in your ears in the busy streets of hundreds of bustling cities and towns The native timber comprises the usual western varietiessev eral species of oakelni ash hackberr hickory pecan cottonwood walnut e aranda pirie The social atmosphere is char jacteristically western in its spirit i2 r IjN r j1J jil tt rS 3i 4 rit4f rpKs itlr bir 4Xv ww tt y Ir LtJr r i wy nLr 1 of open hospitalityand good fel lowship and is particularly no ticeable to the stranger The character of the citizen ship is good and crime and law lessness are much less in this Territory than in many older members of the Union The fullblood Indians are fast disappearing the spurred and leathered cowboy is but a legendary myth with the new race for fences are now a net across the Territory and the old cattle trails are grassgrown be sides almost 3000 miles of rail roadThe raising of live stock is one of the most profitable pursuits Cattle horses mules hogs and Angora goats are raisedas cheap ly as in any state The livestock interests have undergone a mark ed change Formerly the cattle ranged at will over immense areas controled by individuals or corporations Herding on the old plan has almost disappeared giving place to the raising of stock on small ranches or farms The result is smaller herds of finer grade The Texas long horn of the past has given away to the thoroughbred and ev idences of grading can be seen in every locality The Hereford shorthorn and ever popular Jersey can be seen on every hand The short cold season has always been an important factor in the wintering over of stock in Indian Territory and Oklahoma Much less feed is required and the stock come out better in the spring than in any of the North nutriItiousant in the higher altitudesthe blueIstemquite becoming selfcured on the stem at the time of frost have often proved to contain sufficient nourishment not only to sustain the life of Vast herds but actually to fatten them dur ing the winter months In quality and value the horses and mules used in the Territory will compare very favorably with those of any state There is a good demand for horses of medium weight and good form and action Heavy form work mules are much in favor and some fine specimens have been raised They command excellent prices and are always in demand No other state or territory equals Indian Territory in the opportunities it affords for pro fit in raising of hogs for market The reason is found in the ready abundance of cheaply grown food which is available at all seasons of the year It is safe to say that pork can be produced here at sbout onehalf the co tofprod- ucingit in the Eastern and Northern States Desease among hogs is almost unknown Angora goats thrive here and raising them will undoubtedly be come a settled industry Not only are they valuable for par ket while young but their fleece is a source of revenue Wheat corn cotton Oats sorghum broomcorn kaffircbnv millet and alfalfa are the principal crops raised here The cotton growing industry is an important one and has been found very remunerative The plant s valuable not Qw Y for i fiber but 1It the byproducts 7 i0tj iti ti F tl tsJ fj ir ii i47 t w r 1wt v r t x t 1 11 a obtained by milling the seed namely oil meal and hulls oThe meal and hulls are extensively used in fattening stock and the oil formerly used cheifly as an adulterant in oleomargarine and olive oil is coming to be recog nized as itself a standard food product of value for culinary and medicinal purposes Still another special line of in dustry with the brightest of prospects in poultry raising Here are found the ideal condi tions of favorable climate and abundant ready food All domes ticatedvarieties thrive well and their raising is a matter of comparative ease There is a steady market easily reached and at good prices for live and dressed fowls as well as for eggs There are at all seasons abund ant opportunities for the laborer to find employment at good wages New enterprises are con stantly being started and old ones extended a 11 requiring mans labor mental or physical skilled or unskilled An undisputable evidence of the prosperity of Indian Territory is found in the highly satisfactory condition of its banks both Na tional and Territorial The bank ing facilities of the Territory have kept pace with its development and are ample for meeting all requirements of trade A paid up capital of at least 10I 000 is necessary theismallest towns before a Terri torial bank can be organized In Indian Territory there are now 142 National banks 27I000000 resources In 1903 there were 232 Territorial banks in operation with more than 7000 000 resources The combined re sources of all the Indian Territory banks amounts to 34000000 as against 41000000 for all banks of OklahomaWe

18 1906 Jr The announcement of Hon John D White as a candidate for the Republican nomination for Congress in this district brought no comfort to the pres ent Congressman who seeks to be i returned Mr Whites splendid j abilities and his wonderful active methods of conducting a cam paign are so thoroughly known that his entry into the race at this time forebodes no easy sail ing for Congressman Edwards True Mr White appearsbefore his party under some difficulties since he has beenon the war path for several years against corrupt methods in his own party but while he has antagonized the bosses and contended against machine politics yet he has de fended the principles of the Re publican organization with Vim andenthusiasm His open and active onslought on corrupt methods in this district is now in line with public sentiment throughoutthe entire country and iftbrank archie o Republicans in the Eleventh are in accord with the spirit of reform if they want to lift their party from the low plane of the past Mr Whites former position will prove of great worth to him The whip ping into line is becoming more difficult every year and slowly but surely the people are awaking to the necessity of cleaner political methods and party consistency is not so strongly urged as a prequisite for political po sit on and usefulness in service of country On the contrary po litical reformation is demanded V and in many of the States the leaders of reform have been rewarded In this contest the Re publican party of this district will be tested Every member of that party will have a vote and the issue will be clear Mr Ed wards was not sent to Cengress in opposition to ring rule or for any special effort to purify his party from corrupt methods but he won his spurs in a rough and tumblefight never surpassed in this part of the State The con test between the two aspirants will doubtless be watched with much interest by outsiders since the real issue will be open fair methods against the old order of politics backed by federal patron age + j It is given out that Governor Beckham and Auditor Hager i have parted company and will v make their races independently of each other It has been gen ferally understood that both of these distinguished gentlemen are strong members of the Frank 3ort machine and that their respective ambitions would ke- them together for

ago we madethe announcement that Mr James Garnett would prob ably become a candidate for the Democratic nomination for At torney General At that time we were warranted in making the statement as Mr Garnett was considering such action but since he has thoroughly gone over every phase of the questionI he informs us that cidedjnot to announce This decision was reached after due consideration from a business standpoint andnot from any fear of political defeat as he al ready had the assurance from many active and prominent Dem ocrats th ough lIt the State that enthusiIMr Garnett had no fears of los ing but his business for sixteen months in advance of the final contest would have been sacrificed and he has thevsfore made up hlsmlndds above statedj To oij certain Mr Garnett has many warm i friends throughout the State who will regret his d cission As a capable man in every par- ticUlar he measures up to the fullrequirements of the office and his able honest and fearless manner of doing business would have made him a valuable man on the ticket and reflected credit on the state We regret that he declines to enter the race and our regrets are founded on our full knowledge of his worth

half in number but it didnot The license year begins May 1 Up to June 15 last year 6956 license had been issued for the four months period bringing the city a total of 116540923 Between the same dates this year 6484 license have been is sued bringing in 323801952 The falling off in number of saloons as shown by the figures up to date has herefore been on ly 472 or less than 7 per cent The total amount received by the city from saloon license in cluding bar permits in the whole of the last licenses year was 393879835 Already this year therefore on payments for the first half year alone the city has come within 700000 of securing as much revenue as it did in the whole of last year In each of the three license periods last year there were about 8000 saloons listed Some increase therefore may be ex pected this year But even if the average number of saloons for the year is not greater than the figures licensed up to June 15 the years great increase in revenue will be 2500000 This gives

the farm Oh there are too many farmers who think the wife is a part of the farm and she must stay with it and never get out like other women If he gets any money he keeps it She has none nor has she any way of get ting it She has to stay and care for the little ones and hear their cries all day he can go andnot be bothered at home He has money to spend she has none Oh I wonder sometimes there are not more women insane than there are men are so blind they cannot see what they are doing You take the best wife that ever lived and keep her this way and how long will she be good Do you go to church or to town with your wife and children Or do you go away and leave them at home the long lonesome days- I think when I go from house to house and see how some women are treated and hear the talk from the man to her that she must be one that loves her home or she would not stay there long Some women will go through death for the sale of a child Is your wife willing to do for you when you want help Will she let you have money if she has it Do the same by her She may want a spool of thread or a pin Has she the money to get it Treat your wife as you wouldwant her to treat you You will have a good wife then If a man would love his wife as he does himself there would be more happy homes you would see husband and wife out enjoy ing themselves together She would not be cross and tired of the childrens cries Oh no Farm Journal HOW CONVICTS KILL TIME The convict whose idle hours are the bitterest of his term of imprisonment must kill time clandestinely unless the governor or the chaplain is willing to take a very broad view of the regula tions in order to help him Some times a skilled workman of an industrious turn of mind will ap peal to one or the other of these gentlemen to find him some em ployment for his spare time Thus a clever wood carver men tioned in a recent report of the prison commissioners was able to present to the chapel a really magnifficently carved eagle lec tern in oak entirely the work of his own hands and done in hours which might have been spent in solitude and idleness An exgovernor oi a great prison has in his possession are markably handsome sideboard in walnut which was made for him by a convict of a prison where he was governor for some ten years The man appealed to him for some means of killing time and knowing the man to be a cabinet maker he provided him with wood and tools The sideboard was the surprisingresultanpin consequence of it when the con vict took his discharge there was a substantial present from the governor to help him in nak a fresh start in life Moreover while thus employed his hand t was not losing its cunning nor his mind lying fallow and his i iflt i +r t r j iS 7 i changes of leading an honest life thereafter were therefore greatly increased On the other hand prisoners have been known to kill time Secretly by such melancholy de vices as making mats and baskets of straw taken from their beds rather than simply sit and brood Others have set themselves to count the number of times certain letters occur in the Bible with a copy of which everyconvict is provided and it is quite a common practice to learn whole chapters gospels and epistles by heart A certain Hardenedcharacter once com mitted to memory the whole of the Old Testament but the mor al good it did him could not have been very great for two days after his release he committed a burglarly for which he was sen tenced to three years imprisonment The chaplain of a prison posses es considerable powers in the way of providing convicts with spare time occupations and with his cooperation an educated con vict will sometimes indulge in such litarary pursuits as indi ting his autobiography which many chaplains consider an exI celent method for getting a pris oner to weigh his own character though they are often disappointed by the measure of hypocritical claptrap such autobiographies contain London TitBits MEANING OF MOLES A science or pseudoscience of moles axisted among Penn sylvania Dutch for many years THE Jack of allTrades w F JEFFRIES 6c SON AgtsI According to this science no one is without a mole or two progI may draw from their brown ornaments A mole on the right side of a mans forehead denotes wonder ful luck on the right side of a womans forehead gifts from the dead On the left side ofa mans forehead a mold denotes a long term in prison on the left of a womans forehead two husbands and a life of exile A man with a mole in the mid dle of his forehead has a cruel mind a woman with such a mole is foolish idle and envious A mole on the neck in man or woman promises a long and happy life wealth and fame A man with a mole on the left side of the upper lip rarely mar ries and such mole in the case sufferingilip a
