A Sunday Wedding.
Beaver's circle of young people has
beeh ruthlessly broken into again by
that daring little cupid and two more
of our popular young folks t aptured as
Victims of his art This time U is in
the marriage of Miss Alma Kile and
Hurry Brown, whose wedding took
place at the home of Rev. and Mrs.
Leonard at high noon, Sunday Novem
ber 10th, 1007, Rev. Leonard officiating.
Tliia young couple are both popular
and worthy young people of Beaver
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
D. M. Kile, of our city, and has grown
to womanhood here nnd in this immed
iate vicinity. Her friends who know
her best praise her for her womanly
qualities and know her as unaccom
plished young lady.
The groom is one of Beaver county's
most worthy young men. He possesses
those characteristics which causes his
frijnds to speak of him as an energetic
and reliable man. He is a blacksmith
by trade having been employed in D
M. Kile's shup for some time past. lie
might be called something of a diplo
mat, for while he make the sparks fly
for the father h.also played at another
game of "sparks" in the father's house
hold and proved himself an adept at
the trade, by carrying off the prize.
The many friend join the Hep.au
in heartiest congratulations and best
wishes for a lqng and happy life.
Little Miss Entertains.
Little Miss Lcnore J.Jiig entertained
her baby friends at a party given in
honor of her fifth birthday, Tuesday
The little tots enjoyed tcemselvcs
with do'ls and toys 'from four till six
p. m., when a dainty lunch was served.
The room was beautifuLy decorated for
the occasion and the table bore an 1m
meisa birthday cake decorated with
five burning candles denoting the age'
of the little, Miss.
Each little guest was given a white
heart daintily tied with pink ribbon
and bearing littli Miss Lenor,e's Dicturo.
as a souvenir of the occasion. Lenore
received many cute little remem
brances and it would be hard to tell
winch little heart rejoiced the more,
,the givflr'or the recipient.
It was indeed a happy occasion for
the little tots, and one which will be
remembered for nothing is more cher
ished in the heart of a child than those
birthday occasions which seem too long
in coming in childhood buc which speed
only too fast in after years.
No Market for Cotton.
Advices received from foreign markets
report no sale for cotton. Cotton
growers in this vicinity would do well
to house their cotton and keep it in
good condition and there Is sure to be
a demand as soon as money matters
The Beaver Gin & Milling Company
are'buying no cotton and there is no
sale for the product in Beaver. Tim
gin will not be opened up for sometime
yet and will only run when there is
enough cotton on handjto justify firing
The better plan is to keep your cotr
ton at home until the market opens up;

Robs Chicken Roost.
Some man, beast or Devil, probably
the latter, visited the chicken roost at
J. RQuiim'u firm one day recently
and proceeded to carry off th"e entire
flock. The only wonder is that he-left
the roost. The thief came in the night
'with his wagon and scooped every
feathered citter of them.
CMr. Quinn moved to town several
weeks ago but left the chickens at. tluj

in their matrimonial journey. May

be as pleasant as the one just recorded,
The promotion work of tho Beaver
Valley & Northwestern railroad is pro
gressing nicely. Many of the farmers,
who at first were indifferent or hostile
to the proect, have, after a thorough
consideration of the proposition, be
come very active in pushing the work.
Meetings were held last week at Hibbs,

Ho came in Monday and remarked
that ln'd like to "beet" that turnip

ducing a mammouth beet which lie had
tucked away in his vest pocket. The
beet weighed 17 pounds, measured 2
feet, 3 inches from tip to tip and 1 foot
9 inches around the largest part. It
was certainly a huge specimen and'
shows what Beaver county Juwlands

George House Dead.
We are informed this week, of the sad
news of the death of George House,
which occurred at Hooker, Saturday.
Death was duo to typhojd fever and ho
was only ill about two weeks. His
mother, Mrs. James House, of Golden,
passed through Beavor Monday of last
week enrouto to the bedside of hor sick
son. She returned home Tuesday, she
having done all a mother's lova could
do to nurse her child back to health
but in vain. Burial was made at
Tho news of this death is particu
larly sad to tho writer on account of
the fact thut George was formerly an
emplojee of this office, having held a
position here for about a year. Ho was
a model young man audiouo full of
energy, never afraid of doing a thing
too well but ulwajs anxious to do
everything well. XI is indeed with
sadness that wo chronicle his passing

Ripley Declares Santa Fc Will
Not Build in Oklahoma.
Shawnee, Okla., Oct. 25 "Thoro
will not be a mile of new railroad built
in tlm new state by tho Santa Fu in the
near future. Tho attitude of Oklaho
ma as reflected in tho constitution is
against railroad interests.
"Wo do not intend to build under
such circ imstaneos and even if we
euuld get thu nioiu-yj we would not use
it, 1 believe that Oklahoma has set her
self back ten years by adopting tho con
constitution Such was tho ositivo statement
given here today by President Ripley,
of tho Santa Fe, Mr. Ripley Nas bittor
in ids denunciation of the sections of
the constitution apt lying to thu fellow
servant, the couit revision, thu
authority vested in tho Railroad
Commissioner and thu 2-cent rasseu
The Ripley special left for the south
after an inspection of thu company
The above telegram appeared in all
tho daily papers a few days ogo. It is
but a reiteration or similar statements
made recently by Mr. Ripley and other
it is not only a plain statement of the
fact that the Santa Fo wlllrefusoto
build new linos in Oklahoma for many
years to come but it is also an acknowl
edgement of the fact that the u.oney
cannot be secured.
it is therefore a foregone conclusion
that all other rcuds now projected in
Oklahoma and dependent on eastern
capital for their coi.struction, will have
to be abandoned
Confronted by these conditions there
is no hope whatever for Beaver county
to get a railroad within its borders in
tho near future. TJiero is only one
way out of thu situation, that of build
ing a railroad by tho co-operation of all
our people and it is for that purpose
that. tho Beaver Valley and Northwest
ern oa renont.lv nrirnnizMl .
While we uuueiBtanu mat tlie unan
cial condition of most of our people is
such as to make it in convenient to in
vest.in railroad stock, yet, considering
the Joss of time and constant expenses
incident to tho maiketlng of farm pro
ducts, no sacrifice can bo too big that
will bring about a change by which
those expenses will come to a stop or
be greatly reduced
Everybody admits that a railroad
would be a good thing for Bcuvercbuny.
The advantages to be gained by the
people, are so many that their enumeration-would
fill panes. Under thu pres
ent conditions it costs 20 cunts or
bushel on wheat, $0 per Ion of broom
corn, 5 pur ton of coal, 7 nor thous
and on lumber nnd everything else in
With a railroad in Beavor county,
the current market prices would pro
vail here, tho ftirmrs getting the ad
vantage of them. If a inrmor now en
gaged in wheat ruisiugharvosts a crop
of COO bushels, which is by no meuus
extravagant, it requires ten trips to
market with four horses, absorbing not
less than thirty days to do it, Under
new conditions thu four horses will
pull 100 bushels and tho return trip
will bo made in onu day so that the
entiru crop can be marketed in five
uuys, uouuung live more uays .or
rest, a luxury not known when freight
ing, it leaves 20 days each year he can
devote in farming more acres, there
fore increasing his earnings.
The prosperity attending tho com
munities that enjoy tho privileges of
facilities is enough evidence that the
peoplo'of Beaver county owo to them
selves to gut busy nnd fall in line in
tho matter of building the Beaver Val
ley and Northwestern Kailtoad.
Tills is not an enterprise promoted
by outside men with a view of gather
ing donations from our people but it
originated right here among us by
sheer necessity of boinehing being
uonu in tliat line tor our own conven
ience and profit.
Let us work shoulder to shoulder
and make this project a success. The
result will justify tho effort.
