OKLAHOMA A GREAT STATE. AcMinllng to the federal census of !!X the population of Oklahoma ami Indian Terrltorv was 700,:i!)l, and was jiretty evenly divided between tho two. Knch of thee territories had n larger liopulatlon than any one of tho follow ing Western States: Noith Dakota, Wy oming. Montana, Idaho. I'tali. If they had been combined ns one State Its Imputation would have exceeded tint of South Dakota or Colorado. L'ndur a special census recently taken, the to tal population of tho combined terri tory Is placed at Mitnetlilng more than j.KpO.ooo, or nearly double the figure of seven years ago. It exceeds that of Nebraska In H00 and comes cloe to that of Kansas In that year. And tho area of both territories combined Is le.s than that of any of tho States that wo havft named. Not only has tho In creaso of population been very remark able, but no State on Its ndmlslou has had Ki large a population or so dense a imputation, Tho difference Is so very marked that Oklahoma may be said to stond In a class by Itself. As tliu States stood In 1000, It would rank twonty-thlril. next to Kansas, and al lowing for tho probable luei eases else where It should hold that rank In IHIO. Iteourrlng again to the census of MOO, the present j.opulatlun of Oklahoma exceeds that recordtsl for Montana, New Mexico, Delaware, Idaho, Hawaii, Arizona, Wyoming, Alaska nml Nevnda all together. Nor has any of those. Stntes and Territories any such pros issts of growth. Oklahoma Is n rich, Inviting agricultural region, with com paratively little waste laud anil an area largo enough to ustnlr a jkiiiiiIiI. tlon like that of Iowa, Missouri or II llnols. Obviously, also, Its Indian pop ulation will bo of steadily diminishing Importance. The Italians of Indian Territory numbered but 04,000 In 1000, BnkaaWLLmLmamy JOHN F.

If tliu bulletins are not o uply as to dlsllKiiro the land scape they wil servo a useful purpose; but when tho only bulletin In Hluht has been a small, well-trimmed park about tliu station and clean and smooth streets loading to It, many travelers have had their curiosity aroused enouIi to liKjulte the iinino of tho town ami Its leading Industries, so pleasant nu Impression has tho air of thrift and good taste made upon them.

AOITATION FOR POSTAL SAV IN OS DANK PROWS. Thoro Is n largo class of citizens In every country who dlctrust banks or dlsllku to go to them with small sums. Tho result Is that n preat deal of money Is kept out of circulation by hoarding. In the I'ulted States the amount thus carried on the person or M'creted Is not less than Jf.'OO.OOO.OOO. Its owners would bo willing to let the government have the money, and thero would bo no panicky runs. At any postoillco funds can bo withdrawn at any time, so tho account Is virtually a national letter of credit. In Kugl'iud the rnto of Intt'io-t paid Is SJlfc per cent, and the minimum deposit received Is 1 shilling, though there Is a provls. Ion for penny savings, by means of cards on which stamps are alllxed a penny at n tlmo up to a shilling, when a regular dojioslt can be made.
