years ago, shortly after the civil war
when the statutes and customs of
the Choctaws were the only law of
the land and white men were few, a |
prospector drifted into the country
from Arkansas. A limestone ridge
extends across the Choctaw nation
from northeast to southwest, and
the conformation south from this
ridge looked promising to the travel
er. He pitched his camp and pro
ceeded to sink a prospect hole. Un
