chants now regard the telephone as
highly as those lu cities of Immense
population. At present the city Is a
network of tclephono wires and there
are now seventy-one 'phones lu active
use in business houses and residences.
New cards were put up yesterday.
These show that the leading citizent
of the city arc subscribers to the bys
tem Huskies there nro seven boxes
on the fire and police lines. The rates
charged for the 'phones at present are
nominal, S3 being asked for residences
and Si for business houses. P. C

this city, while Misses Ituby anil Clara
Jones ofllclate aH operators, with Mat
lb Woods as substituted. C. P. Me
Danicl is acting as manager during
Mr. Simpson's abscn e in Chicago.
It is now certain that the telephone
company will extend Its lines from
this city to Oklahoma City this winter,
an Improvement that will be of vast
benefit to the people of the two prin
cipal cities of the territory. It is al
so probable that a Hue will be extend

Among the superstitions that pre
vail among the Indians, eon tlio so
called civilized tribes, is that the spirit
of the dead haunts the house in whii'h
they die, and in tho Indian country
can be seen many abandoned huts
abandoned for that reason. If one of
their number is taken sick and is lia
ble to die lie is taken from the house
to tho woods before the demise. If he
dies before he can bo removed, the
body is never taken out through the
dooi, but through a window, and feet
foremost. If tl.ere Is no window a
hole is cut in the side of tho hut or
housu for the passage of the body.
Another superstition among them is
that a child born lu a house will be of
no account, effeminate and dellcute;
so the mother, feeling the pains of I on the plains.
