It hn3 been but 8 fow days since "Iho
gentleman from Knox" wan in tho wild
oud weird Oklahoma country. lie didn't
move with tho inultititilu in that direction,
but allowed his love of adventure to lead
hi in there after tho first nihil wan over.

went merely out of curiosity, nud to have

to tho inner man. lluvit been hero
moro tlinn onco before, pconlo had bo
come familiar with his stock. Tho Legis
lators from Shelby, aided by tho news
papers, haj anticipated everything tho
stirring scenes ut Nashville had
inspired, lienco it was incumbent upon
him to seek new fields and pas
tures green. Ukluhoma was the
promised land, ami since there was no
particular thing set forth as tho promise,
why might not it bo what ho wanted us
v" well as I hut desired and sought for by tho
"V.Yker follows? Kcasoning thus ho act fail,
(sheltered by his favorite roll') of nil um
brella, and tho favorite old time-colored
cashmere plug hat. It was with the most
vexatious wiestling that an Ai-i-kal re
porter drew from him even the faintest
outline of his eventful tour. When first
asnu)tvd the gentleman from Knox de
nied, in language tinged with burning sul
phur, that lm hud ever heard of Oklahoma.
''1 know every crook and turn, every foot
of ground in Kait Tennessee, every man,
woman and child up there, nud if there is
anything up there culled 'Oklahoma,' then
it's been nkvd in since I loft there a day
or two ago," said he.
"Who snid it wus'nn East Tonuo.mco
enterprise?" fretfully rejoined tho rejxirter.
"Oklahoma is the land of promise, to tho
westward. Nobody has ever accused East
Tennessee of being a land of promise, at
leant the kind of promise that thrills men's
souls. 1 low did you get ov.-r there?"
"On ihe train, of course," spoken in tho
hurry to vindicate himself from a suspi
cion of tramping; then remembering hi
rashness, continued: "Over w here? Who
fcaid 1 hud been over there, over vondor.or
any other over, except in Kail Tennessee
and its suburb, Nashville'.'"
"So you rotlo. 1'iim, or pay your fare?"
"When Joo Harris pays any railroad
fare, it'll bo when I've lost my 'persuasive
- eloquence. Itailroiul uien are quick to
recognize merit. l!y my old Leaver, my
presence on n railroad train is worth ten

BTBVd! BSODIB'S LATEST JUMP.
He Leaps Over the Pnssato Falls With
out Injury to Hlrusolf.
New York, May 20. Steve Brodio, the
bridgo juniper, jumped over tho Tassaic
l ulls this morning and camo off without
damage. Eor tho past three months Hro
dio has entertained an insane idea that it
was necessary, iu order to perfect his
record us a jumper from high elevations,
to rival the lata lamented bum Patch by
jumping from tonio of tho places which
tho latter gentleman bad honored by his
presence. This idiotic whim culminated
nhout March 1 in uu e.xpensivo trip to
Rochester, where hrt was only deterred
from jumping over tlio Uenexsoo Falls by
the fact that thero was only fivo feet of
water under thuui. It will be reuieirheii'd
that 1'ntch lost his life at this placo by
jumping from n platform erected at one
side of the falls nud that his body was not
recovered for several days. After failing
in this endeavor, IStovo looked with long
ing eyes toward tho IWuic Fulls, over
which l'uteh jumped with safety n short
time previous to his leap ut Rochester.
Ho mndo nn investigation of tho falls and
decided that it could be done, uud this

Nlnrlina a Creamers'.
From Hoard's Dslryinan. "
Thero aro thousands of communities
whero tho milk of their cows is turned into
10 or 15 cent butter, and finds it way
finally into market ns "grease."
Y ou will hear nearly every farmer sav,
"I wish wo had a creamery here," nnd yet
the only rcafsolid reason why they do not
have such in their midst is boe.iuio thny
lack the truo spirit of tho thing. An Iriah
man was onco chiding n comrade for his
Indifferent way of courting, nnd put the
matter iu tho following light:
It s no use, rat. Oi tell voz. when ve
iniiko luv' to Ciod or a woman, it's s i nil
lurk yo'll bnvo widout ye'fo w hole heart is
It is iust so in the ereamcrv business.
"Sitting down lo a dinner of wishes will
bring starvation for a desert," is another
Irish maxim. Tho creamery bmonehs is
no longer on experiment, yet every com
munity seems to net us cautiously, nnd
hold back as suspiciously ns if their' a was
the first ever built.
In gathering milk for a cheese fuetorv.
or whole milk creamery, or in gathering
cream lor n gathered cream creamery,
there needs to be a general ngrccmoiit of
patronage on every route. 11 lessens tho
expense greatly, nnd thereby ndds to the
profits of the owners of tho creamery if the
wagon bring a nut load every iuv.
t rot. Alvord, in writing on this subject
to tho Amivicm tiifirafor well says:
Scaltereil patrons make nn expensive
nnd comparatively unprofitable creamery.
Tho successful creamery is Iho one which
takes in iiiiio-tenllis or '.I'l-HHJ of nil tho
milk producing farmers in a given area,
and tho more compactly situated they uro
tho better for the business. Where' half
thoso who ought to bn patrons, and per
bai a think they will bo alter n while,
holds oil' to see how tho new venturo turns
out, it would bo apparent to all that tlieso
waiters slid watchers are themselves the
greatest obstuelo to succes.-i. Numerous
cases could be cited w hore out ol 2IK)
farmers in a neighborhood, 100 combined
to start n creamery, nud the rest waited,
watched and criticised. Very likely the
creamery, although an Improvement on
the old plan, was far Iroiu satisfactory, I lo
calise it I'.ad not cream enough to do nn
economical business. More cows was all
that was needed to make a complete suc
cess. Y'et tho doubting hundreds stood
in tho way of their own interests and that
of their neighbors. Tliev wailed and
waited for tho creamery to become n sue-
cos', when thnt might be accomplished
nuv day by their becoming Us patrons.
o iiumber ol farmers cim Ut advised to
start n cannery until three-fourths of all
cow owners, w ho naturally should lie co
operative, have consented to be so, or nt
least '.'M cows, and prefeuilily more,' have
been secured so well located ihatone man,
or two nt tho most, can daily coded nil
troii m ami deliver it at the fuetorv.
About tlio worst hindiuiKo to progress,
and the most expensive thing tlioro is
nhout farming, is the foolish suspicion nnd
jealousy farmers have of one another. To
tell tlmtniih nhout it, such ideas nie
founded on a lack of know ledge of tho
world unit ordinary ways of doing bu-i-iicks.
Tho most ignorant are the most
suspicious of their neighbors. IIiihoicss
men in tow n do not net that wav, vet they
nrc in active competition with each other.
'1 hey will unite and hang together for any
object of mutual betiellt. 1 he farmer must
conic out into the sunlichtof broader ideas
of bis fellows. The nineteenth ei ntiiry is
run on thnt elan, nnd he needs to "gel
aboard tho loaded wngAii" along with the
rest of tho folks.
