FRtDAY, Auqust 12, 1004.
Wo had a short artiolo in the
News a few days ago in regard
to Durant pulling for the cotton
crop. The raorohanta of Durant
need this cotton business this
fall, and thoy should use every
honorable moans to get the cot
ton to our town and seo that the
farmor gets the market price for
it when ho sells. Gentlemen, got
a move on yoursolvos, and let's
see what you can do.

Tho News has received,
through tho courtesy of Rev,
Gross, tho ninth annual cata
logue of Hargrove College at
Ardmoro. This is a splendid
college teaching all of the higher
branches of learning and should

that Uncle Sam knows his busi
ness, and is giving the farmers
what they want, and have a right
to expect in thoir home paper.
In this matter wo do not wish, or
will we publish anything that will
stir up feeling between the peo
ple pL tho town and country.
Theiie is no reason why thero
should be any ill feeling between
poopie on account of one living
in the town or the othter living in
tho country. Thoir interest are

enoh is dependent to a large ex

St. Louis. Mo., Aug. 0. Tho
Indian Territory is an integral
part of the great Louisiana Pur
chase. It is tho only remaining
portion of tho vas( domain coded
by France more than 100 years
ago, that remains today without
a territorial or stato foim of gor
ernment. Though situated in the
very center of the great south
west and surrounded by prosper
ous and thriving commonwealths
boouuso of the environments, the
territory has remained in some
respects an undeveloped section
to this day, It is believed that
within the confines of the Indian
Territory there lies a greator area
of tillable soil, proportionately,
than in any of the southwestern
states. It is known that tho
undeveloped mineral resources
of the territory are immense and
no brighter outlook for vast ma
terial development was over pre

gTosVOprprvrp-riated "the sum
of $26,000 for an Indian Territory
building and exhibit at the great
Universal Exposition now being
held in St. Louis. The inhabit
ants of tho Indian Territory
raised, by popular subscription,
an additional S25.0U0, and a fund
of $50,000 is now being expended
for this purpose, and for the .first
time the Indian Territory is being
represented at a universal expo
sition. Tho Indian Territory pavilion
at the exposition is located on a
beautiful sito in tho plateau of
states, near tho southeast en
trance to the grounds. The
building is a two-story colonial
structure, 109x72 foet. .Thefiist
floor contains, besides the largo
lobby room, two exl'ibit rooms.
In one of these rooms are dis

The coal fields of tho In-U-in
Territory espeoiallj'in tho Choc
taw nation have for years been
operated successfully, and with
ih tho past two years the devel
opment of tho coal industry has
been immense. Tho finest grade
of bituminous coul found in tho
west aro from tho Chootaw na
tion, and the supply seems prao-'
tloally inexhaust bio Petroleum I
is also found in many parts of
the Inditn Territory. This in
dustry, though now, is develop
ing into gigantic prop-irtiona.
Hundreds of wells are going
down in both the Bartletsville
and Muskogee fields, and the
majority of these already brought
in have proved to bo good pro
ducers. The crude oil in the
Bartletsville field grades ab'ut
the same as tho Kansas oil, but
the grade of the Muskogee field
is somewhat better. Railroads,
pipe lines and refineries aro be
ing built for handling this pro
duct, whioh promises to bo in
suoh abundant supply. In the
Indian Territory booth in the
Mines and Metallurgy building
aro shown many samples of In
dian lerntory coal and oils. Be
sides the four large oubes of the
four eoparategrados of bitumin
ous coal found in the territorv
there are arranged cases of the
finest samples of egg coal, nut
coal, pea coal and pyramids of
coal and coke are ereoted. Sam
ples of oil from twenty-Boven
flowing wells, together with sam
ples of the oil sand, aro arranged
in glass and form the back
ground of the booth. CuboB of
Chickasaw granite and the
Cherokee marblo and many
blooka of building stono, filtering
rook, oolite, oto., aro shown in
this booth. A largo relief map,
costing more than $2000, of the
Chootaw' coal fields, and many
pictures and plates , of the top
w-rks of coal mines, oil wells and
asphaltum, works aro attractively
placed in.the booth.
