the distinguished visitors during their
stay in Ihe city. The leading mem

bishops, in whose honor a number of
social functions will be given.
It is rarely that one of these con
ferences is held outside of the big
cities. Last spring, however, when the
bishops met at Mcadeville, Pa., they
favored having their next spring con
ference at some poimt in the west,
and having gathered at Chicago on
previous occasions, accepted the invi
tation to come to Hock Island. The
principal business to come before the
conference is in fixing the dates for
the various state district conferences
the coming spring, when 7."i of them
are to take place. The members of
the conferi nee decide the meeting
place and the date is chosen by the
bishops, one of whom presides over
each conference. Other matters af

the conference will receive attention.

A UUOWN OF GLORY
An Well an a Mark of Beauty Is Lnxni-loua
It has been truly said that the
crowning glory of our race is a lux
uriant head of hair.
It used to be thought that this was
one of the blessings which the gods
bestow capriciously, and it is only re
cently that scientists have discovered
that its beauty is dependent upon the
absence, of a minute germ which nour
ishes in the hair follicles, where it de
stroys the life of the hair.
To restore this life ami kill the
germs which cause the mischief is the
mission of Xewbro's llerpicide.
Herpicide surely kills the germs,
and is the best hair dressing on the

Ad ran tares Found la Greer - County
scribed by William It. Draper.
Oklahoma was an opportunity to
700,000 settlers who now live within
its borders; it is as such to hundreds
of thousands more. There remain,
for those who will take advantage of
the offer, 'fortunes beyond, the fondest
dreams for all who stem the tide and
go' to Greer county, the iiKst beauti
ful section of southern Oklahoma.
Greer county is populated with a
prosjH'rous people; it lies in the rich
Bed river valley, and almost the en
tire farming area is sub-irrigated.
Greer county is the richest county
in the entire territory. Its taxable
valuation is, according to the last re
port of Gov. Ferguson, $.'l.S.:s,541, and
yet this is small in comparison to its
extensive area, for Greer county cov
ers a wide scope, 1,:!00,)00 acres, four
lifths of which is susceptible to cnlti
va.tion. Greer crunty was once held
by the cattle yet, yet today it con
tains less than 75,000 cattle, whereas
10 years ago 500,000 was a small esti
mate to place upon the steers that
roamed over its rich valley land and
grazed upon the luxuriant wild grass
es. On the other hand, Greer county
today contains more horses and mules
than any other county in the terri
tory. These are the property of the
work-a-day farmers who have gone
there to conquer the sod and hae
succeeded so far as they have gone.
Come with me. for a ride through
the county. Mangum is the county
seat, a pretty little place of 2.500 petv
ple. It is mid-.luly. The farmers are
threshing their wheat and the cotton
is in bloom. The oats have been put
into the bins, a tine crop, making CO
bushels per acre, and the corn has
been laid by and will surely run 50 to
70 bushels. Here and there we come
to a tield of black it can no longer
be called green, as it is so luscious
Katlir corn. This is the forage crop.
The farmers raise a good deal of
Kaffir . riirn to feed their stock
through the winter. .Inst across the
field the cotton is blooming. It has

to yield from $::o to $40 worth of cot

into the barnyard of some native, he
brings you out a big red watermelon,

Giver county will raise almost any
thing, with the exception i f oranges,
lemons-, and tropical fruits and plants.
The wheat ar.cl alfalfa grow alongside
c f the com and tlm watermelons. It
is less than 10 feet' to water, and most
of the land is as smooth as a lloor.
Along the western portion lie the
fi othills of the Wichita mountains,
where the great gold excitement now
exists. The rest of the land is bot

rich soil. It is all sub irrigated. It is
never drouthy. and the rainfall ex

Farmers in Greer county can raise
two crops if they care to. for winter
never blasts the fields, and the entire
12-month resembles a period of per
petual spring and fall. The Bed river
by its north ami south fork, furnishes
an abundant water supply, and the
water percolates a few feet under the
soil all through the country. One fan
not go two miles without coming to
some kind of running water. Turkey
creek that flows past Olu.-tee and on
to the Kcd river, is 15 feet deep and
runs across the level plains all the
year around. It canot be seen until
one gets directly upon its banks. It
isi like a perfectly built canal.
In addition t Turkey creek. Horse
creek ami Cottonwood river furnish
an abundant supply of pure water.
Land may be purchased m dreer
county all the way from $12.50 to $25
per acre. There are no free homes
there, for it was never opened like the
rest of Oklahoma. Some farmers have
been there 10 years and never had a
failure of wheat or corn. Cotton alone

The tide of immigration has been
turned toward Greer county this fall,
because it offers such opportunities
to those who have been used to liv
ing in an old settled community. The
county contains 1.10 public schools
and as many churches. It has five or
six good, towns and the shipping facili
ties for grain are good. There is a
farm down 'there tat will suit. you.
There is an opening for any kind of
business in one of the (Jreer county's
hustling towns, and it is a mistake in
going to the new county if you do not
visit this rich and beautiful section,
the garden spot of the territory.

Forty-Eight ThouMand Dollars Paid
for a Fancy Lot of Tobacco.
The biggest purchase of high grade
tobacco ever made in the West by a
cigar manufacturer was made last
Wednesday by Frank P. Lewfe, Peoria
111., for his celebrated Single Binder
cigar. A written guarantee was given
that the entire amount was to be fancy
ttelected tobacco. This, no doubt,
makes the Lewis factory the largest
holder in the United btates of tobacco
of so high a grading. Herald Traiu
