called through local papers.
Before the heat of the day
was felt, the hillside near the
entrance to this - delightful
health resort was dotted
with horses and vehicles
bearing persons from far and
near who had but one idea,
which was to celebrate the
glorious 4th in restful quiet
and enjoy the watera of West
Tennessee's ' 'fountain of
youth," as .it has been so
styled. Delightful strains of
music, as rjroduced by Edw.
Erhnfeldf, director and lead
er of the "orchestra of the
Grand Opera House, Mem
phis, and his able assistants,
added in no small degree to
the day's pleasure. Messrs.
Sfewart and Lewis, proprie
tors, and Mr. H. B. Sherman,
manager, were untiring in
their efforts towards insur
ing a happy day for each and
every one. Several tables
were arranged beneath the
trees on the western side of
the grounds which fairly
groaned withBrunswick stew,
barbecued meats, breads, pic
kles and coffee to which am
ple justice was done by the
two hundred present. The
service was prompt and act
ive. In lieu of an address
from the orator of the day
who failed to materialize, af
ter dinner talks were made by
Col. J. D. Newton, of the
Jackson Whig, EditorReaves
and Rep. J. A. Foster.
The day's amusements
terminated with a dance in
the evening, which was well
attended. Dunlapisa beau
tiful place and well equipped

Cn last Saturday morning at the
home of his parents, G. W. and
Exer L. Prewitt, two miles north of
Grand Junction, Thos. D. Prewitt,
aged eighteen years, fell asleep in
Christ. For thiee weeks he was
very sick ; and, after medical skill
had prescribed the best remedies it
knew and loving hands had done all
they could, and still the suffering
was seveie and the sufferer unre
lieved, God saw that it was enough
and called him to Himself ; and, in
answer to this summons, his patient,
loving spirit -quietly deserted its
tenement of clay and - went home to
live with Jtsus.
The funeral services were con
ducted by the writer Monday morn
ing at 10:5u o'clock in the Baptist
Church in the presence of a large
number of friends and acquaintances.
The deceased professed faith in
Christ August, 1893, and joined the
Grand Junction Baptist Church the
next month. He was an -earnest
Christian, a dutiful son and a loving
brother. His gentle 6pint, courte
ous manners and genial good-nature
made for him many friends who
dearly loved him and by whom he
will be lovingly remembered.
Sorrowing loven ones, put away
from you grief and look up with
praise and- faith to Jesus Christ,
who will give you blessed comfort
and supply all needed grace and

Kiowa and Wichita Lands Open
wo cV,, K Mr TV TLr
on Friday and given to the
press to-day. By this proc
lamation all unreserved
lands in these tracts will he
open on August G. There
will be no rush. The open
ing will be by lottery draw
ing. The preliminary regis
tration . begins at El Reno
and at Lawton, near Fort
Still, on the morning of
Wednesday, July 10, and
continues until the evening
of Friday, July 26. The
diaw'.ng will begin atElReno
on Monday, July 29.
The lands to be opened are
as follows: The Kiowa Res
ervation, after deducing the
lands allotted to the Indians
and reserved for school and
other purposes, will contain
10,.Jol tracts of 100 acres each,
to be disposed of to the home
steaders. These are gen
erally good lands, but there is
i certain percentage of poor
lands. The Wichita Reser-
tion, after deducing the lands
allotted to the Indians and
reserved for other purposes,
will contain 3,122 tracts of
1G0 acres each. This res
ervation also contains a cer
tain percentage of. poor lands,
but it is not quite so great as
in the Kiowa.
The highest number of
homestead claims which could
be taken in the two reserva
tions, even if all the lands
were desirable, is 13,473.
Kone of these lands can be
obtained as free homes. They
must be paid for by all
claimants at the-rate of 1.25
per acre at the time of sub
mitting final proof.
Any person desiring to
obtain a home must cro in
person to one of the land of
fices and show by written
yiroof that he is qualified to
take a homestead entry and
actually desires to do so. If
his proof is satisfactory he
will be registered as a quali
fied applicant and will be
given a certificate to that ef
fect and will draw a number
which will show the order in
which he will be permitted,
at the opening, to make a
selection of land.
No advantage will be gain
ed by being among the first to
draw, as those who register
on the last day will have just
the same chance to draw the
earlier number as those who
registered on the first day.
All applicants will be regis
tered and the certificates will
not be transferable.
After registering the ap
plicants will be permitted to
freely travel over the lands
and become familiar with
them, so they may be able
to make a wise selection at
