HERE'S GOOD NEWS.
We have often thought, while watching the feminine throngs about our place. What would the Dry Goods business amount to if
it wasn't for the ladies? And what would the ladies do if it wasn't for the Dry Goods men? We do our share in the mutual benefit
business by opening up this week these MAGNIFICENT BARGAINS:

In an address celebreting the

A practical test of growing Al

been made by John T. Morrow,
who resides near Wagoner I. T..
Morrow has a fine crop of Alfalfa
and stalks of which are about six
feet in length. Last year Morrow
raised 1078 bales of Alfalfa from
five acres of land, which he sold at
ten dollars per ton. The five
acres of land brought him $300.00
or $60. per aore. This year Mor
row has a large crop of Alfalfa,
and has already cut severeral tons
of six foot Alfalla in tbe first crop,
and yet has more cuttings, Mor
row says stock will eat Alfalla and
grow fat and prefer it to corn and
The Tahlequah arrow felicitates

Way. Then four days instead of
fourteen will be required to receive
a bill of goods from St. Louis, and
the goods will come in their origi

It is refreshing to the better
cass of citizens of Vinita to realize
that in Judge Joseph A, Gill, tbe
community has a forceful ally in
tbe'enforcement the of law, and a
sturdy advoccte of morality and
decency. In bis rugged strength of
character be occupies no uncer
tain ground as to temperance in
Vinlta,and bis jurisdiction, where
ever and whenever tbe subject is
brought to bis attention. Intoxi

The tug ol war is now on in tho
Creek nation between the Indians
and the land companies. It will
require a section of the United
States army to keep the big land
sharks off the Creeks.
There are half a million acres of
idle land contiguous to Vinita, and
it is as fine as a crow ever flew
over. When all this fertile soil is
brought under tbe plow this will
be tho most productive section on
the habitable globe.
One of tbe infallible rewards of

If President Roosevelt made

There is little doubt but what the
Quay bill would be ratified with
a whirl by the Cherokees if sub
mitted to a vote. There are a few
provisions that perhaps could be
amended, but on the whole it is
far ahead of anything that was
ever gotten up before. It has
been generally discussed by lead
ine Cherokees throughout .the
Cherokee nation and today there
is almost an absolute certainty
that it will meet with tbe ap
proval of the Cherokees, Tbe
Gbieltain has letters from almost
every neighborhood in the nation,
and from men well posted in
Cherokee affairs and nearly all
urge tho passage of the Quay bill.
There never has been snch unani
mity of sentiment on any measure
efleotinR the property rlnhts of
Cherokees as there is on this pro
posed allotment bill. After years
of weary effort congress has about
found out what these Indians
need and want and now the part
of wisdom would be to slve it to
them by ths speedy enactment of
the Quay bill.
The Chieftain has always been
an optimist, but never more to
than now, and not only in local
matters, but in world-wide affairs.
The present is a time of volcanoes,
tornadoes and cyclones. Moun
ti ins are belching fire and death,
and storms are sweeping away vil
lages, but in a general way tbe
earth is going about its bnsiness in
the usual way. Tbe volcano is
only a little tpot on the globs, And
tbe oyclone it a little narrow in
significant affair, just a streak
here and (here. On all tbe rest of
tho earth tbe spring time just
ended has poured the richness of
its beauty, and tbe summer will
give fulness of its promise. For
ests and mountains have burst in
to foliage, prairies are green, flow
ers are blooming beside every
path and roadside, tho waving
grain in ten thousand fields make
glad the heart of tbe farmer in
every quarter of this old world.
Gossamor clouds float in the sun
