Showing How a Considerate Husband and
Dr. C. E. R. King, of this city, is a
very evenly tempered and amiable gen
tleman, notwithstanding the many cares
and perplexities, the practice of bis pro
fession brings with it. The Doctor is
also an ideal family man. He doth love,
counsel and cherish his better half,
In no maudlin He
thinks his coming M. D.’s and Mrs. M.
D.’s, the personification of cuteness and
juvenile intelligence. It is no wonder
therefore that Dr. King has got himself
into a peculiar situation. The Doctor's
story is as follows:
“A couple of weeks ago, upon my ar
rival at my residence I found my little
ones anil their mother very much inter
ested in a circular, that by some hook or
crook bad found its way into my erst
while happy home. The insiduous cir
cular presented the claims of the 'Dulce
phone' to recognition in a most inter
esting and indisputable manner. It was
automatic, played all the tunes, and was
so simple of construction and operation
that the veriest child, could grind out
the most difficult music by the hour. 1
thought of Mozart. Beethoven, “Home
Sweet Home," Will S. Hay's melodies
and decided to please my family, and at
the same time myself. The price was
$B. I sent a I’ostottice order for that
amount to the proper address, and o--
dered it sent by freight. A few days
since an express w agon left at my resi
dence something closely resembling a
sewing machine and came to my otlice.
with the information, and also to collect
the neat little sum of $5.65 for charges.
I concluded it was the dulcepbone and
rather than lose the $8 already advanced
concluded to pay the express charges.
When 1 got home that evening I found
the family busily engaged in drawing
the sweetest of notes from the instru
ment. The music was good, but they
bad sent bat one piece of music witli the
phone. It was the Scotch ballad "Bon
nie Dee.”
The sheet of music was 18 feet long
and was perforated, similar to the kind
used on organettes. 1 got to liguring
on what it would cost me to get a suffi
cient number of pieces to have a change
once in a while, and this is the result:
To 100 popular pieces, each 18 feet
long, at 8 cents per foot. $144.
“I have concluded nottosend forquite
so many pieces,” sighed the genial M. D.
"The Eastern men got the bulge on
yon,didn’t they, doctor?” asked the re
porter.
“Yes. the blamed Yankees nre too
smart. I might have known better than
to go into the business blindfolded.”

"why don’t you get a few Irish.” come

“Be Heaven, the very suggestion of
such a thing doth almost cause insanity.

THE NATION.
To Be Opened Up For Immigra
tion.
What a ProminentlOfficiai ,of the Chero
keesl.Says TAbout the Ap
proaching Chang J.
t here is destined to be a great change
in the of the In
dian Reservatiun known ns the Indian
Territory, shortly, and part of that
change Is now coming to the surface.
The cause is a natural one, worked out
to the approaching and inevitable re
sult by tiie Indians themselves, who are
proverbial for their dislike of manual la
bor of any kin I, and for living by the ef
forts of others. Their vocation in life
would seem to be that of an English
landlord in Ireland.and indeed.it would
appear from reports that they are now
and have been for some time engaged
in training themselves in a practical
school for this vocation. From a gentle
man of known culture and intelligence,
who has passed tiie last 15 or 20 years oi
his life among the Indians, and who has
been for many years past the Secretary
of the Grand Council of the Cherokee
Nation, Mr. Leonard I'einpleton. tiie
I.mu t reporter obtained a full history of
tbe disentegrating tendency of the affairs
in the Territory. He says each Indian,
or head of a family of Indians, in the
Territory is a landed proprietor for as
many acres as he can attend to and im
prove. Many Indians bold 1000 or more
acres, and besides have allowed white
farmers to rent land from them for cul
tivation. paying them one-third and one
fourth of their ditterent crops annually.
The wav this Is accomplished, a farmer
comes in, interviews Mr. Indian, and in
duces him to locate a farm in his (In
dian's) name. Then Mr. Farmer rents
it, improves it. and begins paying rent
at tiie end uf the second year. Thus tbe
Indian, witli several tenants, can devote
his entire time to riding around among
his line herds of cattle or in hunting,
whilehis tenants keephim well supplied
with provisions. This plan has worked
very well tor the Indians for some years
back, but the whltis began getting tired
of it after the repeal of the old lease law
anil the establishment of the new one,
and threatened to leave the Territory,
and Mr. Indian in the lurch also, if they
were not allowed to buy or lease the
land they cultivated. The councils of
the ditlerent tribes of the Cherokees,
Creeks. Chickasaw* and Choctaws,
which hold an annual meeting in Sep
tember of each year, met and discussed
the question and decided to send repre
sentatives to Washington to urge upon
Congress the necessity for sectionizing
the land in tbe Territory and allowing
the whites to come in as actual settlers.
This question lias been talked of
for several years by the Indians,
the lull-bloods always opposing it.
while tiie half-breeds were solid
in its favor, although being in the mi
nority in the councils, to forward it
Now, however, since they, the full
bloods see the determination of tbe
whites to either possess the land they
cultivate lor'move out. thev have sided
with the half-bloods, and a few days ago
the Cherokees sold six million acres of
their land. It is to be decided among
the Indians whether each head of a fam
ily shall have a headlight or homestead
of so many acres, after which tiie re
mainder will be for sale. This will open
up the beautiful and fertile Indian Na
tion to the white man, and there is no
more fertile land in the country. It
will be quickly settled.
Mr. Temp'eton left a few days ago to
return to tbe Cherokees. He has
traveled extensively through Texas, and
likes the State and its climate, though he
prefers the territory above all Texas.
Cruelty to Animals
There is little doubt but what Henry
Bergh’s attempt to regulate the care of
animals in transit on railroads was a
worthy act. The suffering of nearly all
animals shipped by rail is proven by the
marked shrinkage that takes place.
Manj’ States now have laws that stock
cannot be kept penned up in a railroad
car except a stated number of hours, tiie
railroad company being held responsible
for its violation. A case in point is here
cited : Mr. O. 11. Romlnger, of Illinois,
who is engaged in importing tine blood
ed horses, put a thoroughbred stallion on
the । ars in New Orleans on Monday at 11
o’clock, and left orders at Houston to
have him fed and watered, but on his ar
rival here last night it was found that
the seal of the car had never been
broken. Feed and water was in tbe car.
but as the company had no one whose
duty it was to attend to it, the poor
horse wa- without anything to eat or
drink for 77 hours. The poor fellow
showed his blood when released in the
game way that he stepped off.

American Ideas in Europe.
“Russia is building a strategic railway
to the Austrian frontier.” You know
what a strategic railway is, don’t you?
Buys is right of way from the farmers for
an annual pass, then gets all the land
condemed and takes up tbe passes, then
gets a state grant of two or three coun
ties for the directors, buys its iron on
long time, and pays for its grading with
construction bonds, then issues equip
ment bonds to pay for rolling stock, bor
rows all the money in the country on tbe
mortgages, calls in everthing outstand
ing and exchanges it for a deficit,
changes its name from the “North and
South Air line” to the “East and West
Shortline,” divides the swag among tbe
directors and runs the road on the de
ficit. It may be new in Russia, but it’s
old with us. Country’s just full of
