PEACHE8 ARE PLENTIFUL
AND PRICES ARE LOW
While everything is selling well,
there is but little change in prices.
Fluctuation has ln&ikedly deceased
and now the only change is a lower
log in quotations. . ,
The ch'ef item of interest in the
past few days has been the peach,
and it is now showing if every blush
ing girl cannot be a peach she may own
one. Tbey are coming from points in
Illinois and Missouri in large quan
tities, aod come as near slumping the
market as any other article has dar
ing this season. Tbe crop in south
ern Illinois, from all reports, was
good and but little affected by the
heat, and the peaches say as much by
their appearance. They are solid and
of a respectable size; and the. best of
all for this season they are selling at
a low price. The I llnois peach cornea
at 20 cents a basket at retail, while
the Michigan fruit is expected almost
hourly. From all reports it is also
choice and of good quantity.
California fruits are inclined to
rise, bet will soon settle down again,
it is thought. The present upward
trend of prices la no doubt due to
placing them at too low a figure, as a
reaction against the sky-scraping
prices they were drawing when the
sun was trying to roast us all. Lem
ons are falling gradually. Ibme fruits
are very popular just at this time
and all that can be brought here or
got from the country are readily sale
able. Plums locally are doing well in
the marts. The early variety is what
is supplying the trade, and it is doing
it to perfection. This variety did not
seem to be much affected by the in
tense heat of a few weeks ago, and
consequently are making a brave
showing. The late plums are, how
ever, reported to be nearer a failure,
as tbey were, budding in the right
time to get the full effects of the tem

ROCK ISLAND BRANCHES
IN THE INDIAN COUNTRY.
The Rock. Island railway company
will have completed and begun the
operation of important extensions
and branch lines into the heart of
Oklahoma in about three months
more. That of immediate interest is
the line into Lnwton and 25 miles
southwest of it into the center of the
new homestead conntry recently
taken up by the big land lottery.
Tho road is a direct branch from the
Mangum line, which extends almost
straight west from Chickasaw.
About 25 miles west of Chickasaw
on this road is Anadarko. From this
point the road is building south and
veit into L.awton, and It has now
reached Richards, only 14 milesaway.
By Sept. 15 trains will be running
into Lawton. x
Another new branch will extend
outheast from Lawtcn to Terrell, in-
volving 60 miles of track. The big-
geBt proposition under way. however.
is the main line building from Enid
on the main line in the north end of
Oklahoma to Anadarko, there joining
tne Magnum lino west and the Law-
ton road south. This work will mean
100 miles of now roadway. These
hree new lines will coniDlete the
net work x which the Rock Island has
spread throughout Oklahoma terri
The Rock I -land's new extension
from Liberal, Kas , to El Paso, Texas,
s making excellent progress and will
be completed by the end of October.
The grading has been finished and
only about 150 miles of track remain
to be laid to the connection with the
El Paso & Northwestern railroad,
which forms a part of the new line.
At El Pato connection is made with
the Southern Pacific & Mexican Cen
tral railroads and traffic arrangements
havo been made by the Rock Island
management with both of those
roads. It will givo the Rock Island
a line from Chicago to Southern Cal

erably shorter than by the Santa Fe.
