Attorney A. S. Dickson and wife
departed Sunday for Willow Springs,
Toxas, whom they will spend a fort
night. Mr. Dickson is attorney for the
N. F. & N. W. Railway and recently
received his annual pass over their
lines. From the appearance of his
transportation card which reads. 'Rock
Island Linos" It Is evident that the
compromise reported as taking place
between the great railways and where
in the M. K. A T transferred tho W.
F. &. N. W. to the Rock Island in or
der to amicably settle the controversy,
is true and that railroad building in
Oklahoma will not bo resumed, to any
great extent, until article 0 of tho Con
Btltlon is repealed. Tho great rail
road interests are contending for the
repeal of this section which they claim
makes railroad extension impossible.
Tho Beaver Herald is after the boot
leggers of that town proper. People
are beginning to get after theso law
breakers in every part of the county,
but now that tho Ileaald has espoused
the cause, the depredators that infest
tho county seat will likely have a rock
ior road to travel than those in any
other part of the country, for they
must not overlook tho fact tho Her
ald editor is to be feared tho most of
nnv because "Her name Is Maude."
Tho Beaver gamblers and bootleggers
better take a tumble anil get out or
the country at onco, which would prob
ably bo very pleasing and satisfactory
to the people of that town. Beaver
Wo never have regretted our name
boing "Maude" in fact, we rather liked
it, but. we'll feel more proud than ever
if It proves to have tho desired effect
as Brother Hill seems to think it will,
in dealing misery to the bootlegger
and gambling fraternity. Wo only
wish we could land on this class of law
violators as effectually as ''Maude,"
tho mule, of comic newspaper fame,
landed on some of her victims and
transported them by mulu-hocl-o-blle
to whero tho woodbine- twlncth and
the whang-doodln whineth.
Great Loss To Fruit Growers.
The cold wave which swept the coun
try last week extending even to the
fruit bolts of California and Florida,
did great d.imago to the orange and
lemon crop and in fact, tho ontiro cit

a comrlotc loss and means thousands
of dollars loss to tho fruit growers of
Ohio Valley Flooded.
Much suffering nd lni of nropnrty
has been experienced by residents
nlong tho Ohio rirer valley on account
of hlch water tho past week. Tho
river reached he seventy foot stngo
at Clncinntti and all the lowlands are
flnodid Hundreds of families have
been driven from their homes nnd the
property loss will be enormous.
George Murphy is n self-confessed

had to walk homo. When George

Mr. Jeptha Scott Johnson was born
Nov. 10, 18S4, at Ohamplaln, 111 His
parents moved to Kil'erton, Iowa,
when he was two years of age. There
he received a common school educa
tion. He was converted in early life,
nnd set his faco toward tho city of his
King. Ho was united In tho holy
bonds of matrimony July 18lh, 187$, to
MIssMabolla J. Shackloford. Shoul
der to shoulder thoy stood most faith
fully until Dec. 10111,1012, nt7:6fp, 111.
when tho death messuiiger severed tho
bonds which united them on earth,
Mr. Johnson moved to Beaver county
March 2 J ml, 1003, where h lived the
life of a Christian admired, and loved
by all. If ho had an enemy no one of
us knew it. We aro sure it cat) bo
truthfully said of him as of "Empress
Josephine, "he never caused anyone to
shed a tear." Mr, Johnson was of the
old Bchool, an honest man God's niost
noble work, no one doubted Mm, or
what ho asserted for the truth, he went
homo leaving no children, but n most
devoted wife who surely feels the loss.
Scott Johnson Is diad, but his spirit
lives and his works will follow him and
the church ht Twin Mound will riso
and call him blessed.

It was dumonstrated tho past two

Hoping that conditions will improve,
