Laat year at the convention wo reported a paid up membership of twenty mom bets. Let us not full short of that the ensuing year, which entitles us to two delegates to tho territorial convention. Any woman who le friendly lo the cause can becotno a member by signing tho following pledge: "1 lieroby sol emnly promlso, God helping me, to abstain from all distilled, fermented and malt liquors, Including wine, beer and elder, as a beverage, and to em ploy all proper means lo discourage the use of and traffic In the same," and paying sixty cents dues, fifty rents of which is retained at homo for local work, and wearing the whlto ribbon. Any woman who Is anxious to help tho causo can do this much, and while It Is not much It Is throwing your in fluence with ua. All members who have not paid up for tho year are ra qucsud to hand their duet to our treasurer, Mrs. J. It. Trott. It Is of ten used sb an argument against us that tho W. O. T.

To the casual passer-by thcro is nothing in this abandoned group to excite attention or call up a passing thcuzht, but to those who take the pains to enquire, thero are" several pages of history written. They aro outlaws' graves, most, If not all of them slain by United States marshals In trying to effect their arrest. "That's Heck Bruncr's gravo yard" was tho la conic remark of a man tho other day In answer to a question as to what the Isolated group meant. Of course Bruncr nor his men did not kill them nil, but they have been brought in one at n tinio by different olllcers and at different times. The first train rob ber and outlaw buried there was Kcp Queen, killed by Sheriff Ed. Sanders and a party of citizens near Claremore some years ago; the body was brought here and held for Identification and reward, and was finally burled hero. Another ono of tho graves contains tho body of Jim Turncr.allas "Kiowa," who was killed by Heck Bruncr or some of his posse at the tltno Bob Rogers betrayed the gang Into tho hands of tho marshals and 'Willis Brown and Kiowa were killed. Tho body of Kiowa was kept In u plno box at tho Frisco depot for more than a week In January, 1801, being frozen all tho time, and was nt last buried In the nook of tho gravo yard men tioned nbove.
