The opening of the Indian lands
to settlement Is near at hand, and
Anna has been in line over three
weeks. It has fallen to the lot of
but few girls to be a part of a land
line— to be one of those who squat
at the door of a land office—or as
near it as she can get, and wait
weary weeks for the movement when
the portal shall swing back in token
that the long vigil is done. Those
who have had the experience will
tell you that they never want to
go through It again; that, however
rich the reward may be, the nerve
racking strain, the long, cheerless
nights, the dull, monotonous days,
the worry and the doubt of success
after all. are too big a price to pay (
for it.
