A most conspicuous and growing
necessity and one apparent to all
persons traveling from the northern
or -western portions of the nation
to Tahleuuah, is a bridge across
Grand River. At present the route
to Tahiequah from all the country

place ninety miles- "With a bridge

this distance would be reduced
twenty-three miles, or to sixty
seven. Then to reach the capital,
instead of going into the Creek
country the route would be through
the very heart of the Cherokee Na
tion, the proper" course for this
travel. It should bo understood
that the volume of this travel is by
no means light, and although im
possible of computation, the saving
of expense in a. year owing to the
decreased mileage would be a large
item far in excess of the interest
on the outlay. To be sure the cost
of a good bridge, and certainly a
cheap one should never be put in
at this point, would be considera
ble. If, however, it can be demon
strated as a paying investment,
and it surely can, then the national
council would be justified and com
mended on all sides for making an
appropriation for the purpose. The
benefits to be derived from the
construction of a bridge at the
point named are in no sense local,
but 'while accommodating the peo

serve those of the southeast, and in

The Greeley exploration party

within G degrees, SG minutes, or
about 45S miles, from the pole; the
deficit being about the distance
from Chicago to New York. In
addition to achieving the distinc
tion of having gone farther north

far as known, the survivors have
brought back with them a consid
erable addition to our previous
knowledge of the geography of the
Artie regions. The returning par
ty brings with it one Important
it-- of nnvrs, which opens up an
old question and makes it one of
general interest now. Within 650
miles of the pole they have found
a cliff containing fossils., among
which were the roots and a part of

of a time when it was as warm

truthiully stated that it takes a great

wo believe the croaker is, whether
intentionally or not, the grcatestob
structionist." He surrounds his asso
ciates with dark forebodings of
trouble and seems to delight in al
ways looking on tho gloomy side.
He is the avant courier of panics,
the foreteller of disaster, and acts
as a cloud in ever striving to shut
out the sunlight of hope and bright
anticipations ofjoy of his associ
ates. When clouds lower and
storms arise in the buisness world,
when a too great rush of thin cattle
to market brings the inevitable re
sult, a decline in prices and an
unsettling of values, he is then
found croaking out diriful pre
dictions of impending woes. A few
croakers in the cattle business can
do a vast amount of danger at times
like the present. When finances
are unsettled,whcn stock cattle con
tracted for before any stringency
in finances occurred, arc en route
to final destination and delivery,
when a prosperous beef market
suddenly drops from the overcrowd
ing of tlieir young cattle, when in a
word, a friendly word of cheer
is needed to strengthen confidence,
then it is tho croaking is loudest
and the croakers revel in gloomy
foreboding. They tell you that

be intensified by the coming of
cholera, and hunt out all the
rumors of troubles and disasters
even in the most'remote sections of
the world to show that a crisis
in caHle is at hand. Foolish in
deed.is the croaker in thus spending
liis time, yet more to bo pitied Is
the man engaged in cattle raising
who heeds his gloomy utterances.
Any one" knows, who will give j
tho matter a moment s thought,
that fully one-half of the gnus
beeves for this season that have al
ready found tlieir way to market,
netted to their owners good prices.
It equally as true is, that most
of the young trail cattle have gone
on contract and enough cash paid
on tli cm to secure the seller from
any loss wbatever.If from declining
market stock cattle become a shade
lower, or many shades lower, the
owners can hold and grow them
at paying prices. A cow will
produce just as good a calf whether
she be value d at 820 or $40. When
the calf becomes old enough to go
