on the 25th ult. in pursuit of two
prisoners who broke jail at Welling
ton a short time ago. Air. Thrall t
went from here to Rocky Point,
Chickasaw Nation, where he had
heard the parties had gone.
There seems to be a slight hostil
ity on the part of some of the loss
fortunate of the Agency toward Mur
phy. The only reason we can im
agine is that the boy was a week old
before his ''smile that was childlike"
was observed by any of the frequent

Messrs. Schifl'bauer Bros, of Ar
kansas City., have purchased a new
delivery wagon for the accommoda
tion of their city trade. This is not
a mere advertising vehicle but is
bought for service, the biu-inesof the

it became a necessity. These gentle
men pay especial attention to the
outfitting business and stock men
and others visiting Arkansas City
will do wei! to call and examine
their goods and prices.

health. He goes to Lawrence, Kan.

The value of properly advertising

Mil left Bros., whoso brand appears
in this issue of the Transporter.
They are interested in the contract
of W. C. Odum for supplying the
Agency with beef cattle, and bring
ing large herds into the Territory,
recognize the importance of having
their principal brands made known.
Mr. S. JJ. Strong, Co. I, 23d Inf.,
called on us one clay last week and
of course, subscribed for the Trans
porter. Mr. Strong is a goat read
er and works energy to induce
other soldiers to road the periodi
cals of the day. We hope ho will
succeed in his laudable undertak
ing, for nothing of its cost compares
with good reading matter.
Tho Sac and Foxes raised corn
enough for their own use this year.
Henry C.Jones will have 1(J0U bush
els. Daily Indian Journal.
TTenrv C. Jones is a full blood Sac
and Fox. When a boy he received
the benefit of two months schooling.
Afterward learned the blacksmth's
trade, and for nine vears has been
blacksmith for his tribe at a salary
of $700 per annum. Ho has at the
Sac and Fox Agency a nice little
farm a$d a good frame house, with
all the conveniences of a farm house
in the States. In addition to this,
he owns quite a herd of cattle, is
alive to the interests of his people
and persistent in his efforts to have
them abandon their present mode of
of life. When we see such men as
Jones made from the blanket Indi
an, need there be any doubt as to
the possibility of Indian civilization?

much Interested and pleased in our visit to
tho patent oJllce, Smithsonian, Agricultural,
Corcoran Art Cullery and Treasury. At the
latter place wo avo re shown the .Rogue's Cal
lory, where wo saw hundreds of pictures of
criminals, and counterfeit money amounting
to millions of dollara. Wo spent an afternoon
in going through the Navy Yard. Went on
board the Passaic, an old war vessel. Wo lml
a very nice trip to Martlnsburg Va., passing
through Harpers Ferry on the way. The soon
cry t hero Is perlectly magnificent. Wo saw
the house in which .John lirown wasconflnod.
Rut best of all we enjoyed our trip to Mt.
Vernon. It is surely one of the most beautl
tvd places in the world. Everything seemed
almost perfect. We had the extreme felicity
of sitting in a chair that came over in the
MayJlower, iileo in the one used by the "Fa.
the r of of our country." Rut there was an.
other object lar more dear to us, which call,
ed up fonder recollections and more louder
feelings tho hatchet.
Wo tonic a steamer on Wednesday, bound
for New York via Hampton ard Norfolk,
stopping one day at Hamilton, whore we had
a very pleasant time, wo went on to Norfolk.
Wo were obliged to lay over there a day and
a half but put in our time very well. Crossed
over to Portsmouth and visited tho Navy
Yard, and went on board the Vauilalia, the
vessel on which CJen. Grant made his cruise
on tho Mediterranean. Tho olllcers of the
ship were very kind indeed to us and show,
ed us everything of interest. Wo also visit,
od in Norfolk the oldest church in Iho I'liited
States, saw the old tombstrnes with such
quaint and curious epitaphs as to frequently
make us smile. Either people were better
in those days than now or else the tombstones
lie. The oldest stone bore the dale of 1072.
Norfolk is an exceedingly dirty place. Abso
lutely lllthy. Tho air seemed to smell of yel
low fever ami cholera, and the water was so
thick Ave couldn't drink it. We loll Norfolk
Saturday evening on the Wynokc, an Old Do.
minion steamer, and a very nice one too.
We .stayed on deck till wo had passed from
the river into the bay and then out on the
briny deep, enjoying It all hugely without a
suspicion ofscasicUnoss. About nlno o'clock
avo went below to our slate rooms and slept
splendidly all nitfht. Rut when morning
came, "Ah spare the tale!" It makes me sea
sick now to look at the picture; af a steam
boat. Wo wore about an hour and a half got
ting dressed. They told us that If we once got
on deck the sickness Avould disappear, so
Avith thlsspnrk of hope keeping us up, or rath
er holding us down, wo went above, but avo re
disappointed in the ellect. We Avero out
about thirty miles from land, nothing but the
"deep blue sea" rolling all around us. Watch
ing tho A'cssol as it rose and tell with tho
Avavesaud fooling tho motion made us death
ly sick, and what inado it worse, everybody
made fun of us. Our only consolation was
that wo had several partners in distress. I
olung frantically to a post and a .spittoon and
"I would that my tongue might utter the
thought that roue in mo." We made three en
sneccMsiiil attempt to go on deck during the
day. Rut as evening approached and land
came in Might, avo felt much hotter and ale
a hearty Hiipper. We had eaten nothing since
tho night before and wore hungrier than Tan
