Court Officials Enjoyed a Fishing
Trip on the Illinois River.
Judge GUI returned home last
Thursday having been compelled
to forego the pleasures and discom
forts of a fishing trip and outing on
the Illinois river.
Upon tho adjournment of the
Tahlequah term ot court Judge
Gill, Marshal Leo Bennett, Clerk
C. A, Davidson, Deputy Prosecut
ing Attorneys J. II. Huckleberry
and O. L. Rider, F. D. Adama and
Messrs. W. W. and Geo. W. Find
lay, of Kansas, arranged for a
season of recreation.
Tbo gentlemen embarked in
boalB and floated down the river
leisurely, going into camp early
each evening and fishing while
the' attendants pitched the tents
and rooked meals.
In several places the river benda
abruptly and, the current runs
swiftly. In running such raplda
the party encountered several mis
haps which compelled them 'o get
out and wade. The boats weie
frequently lodged on sand bars
when it was a case of "all parties
get out and shove."
Al ono place where the current
was unusually swift an old log
Btuck out over the water nearly
across tho stroam, as if to impose
an injunction against further pro
gress. Jim Huckleberry was pil
oting the provision boat and he
decided that there was no ground
for the injucllon and proceeded to
turn the boat to escape eervice.
He. soon found that there was
plenty of water, however, and ub
the craft was whirled against the
log and cansized. thl' caDtain was

'The Missouri, Kaneas & Texas
railroad is turning a good deal of
attention to the industrial depart-ment,-'
said Mr. T.L Peel, indus
trial agent of tho road. "It is ro-
cogni ed as a thing that ia destined
to build up Texas and Indian Tor
rltory and Incrcaeo railroad ton
nags more than anything else, and
the objects of this department aro
lo encourage and aid tho raising
of fruit, vegetables and the like
and the establishment of canning
factories and all kindred industrial
plants, knowing that from these
the company will reap large re
turns in increased tonnage and
"Il has been my duty to look
after the industrial department,
and I am pleased to say that the
country In the territory and Texas
along the line of our road has very
rapidly increased its ncreago of or
chards, truck ond berry farms, and
the people are rapidly learning
that they should not stop al sup
plying the home and nearby
country, but should supply the
middle west and north with frulta
and vegetables, and they realize'
that canneries should supply a
great part of the country with can
ned fruits and vegetables instead
of importing them."
