As oar friends know the editor and wlfo have beeu gone from home for lvo weekp, and while we have been having a royal time, it has grown old to ns; bat yet may be interesting to oar readers we will attempt to write it up. While were on the wing all the time, riding on trains at night, seeing new bights, meeting friends and making new acquaintances all the time, we came borne feel ing better than when we went away. We left Chickasha on the morn ing of the 2Gth by way of HI Reno and Oklahoma City, over the Frisco, arriving at Viuita, I. T. at C p. m. on the 27th to nieet with the Editorial Territorial Associa tion. The Association was slimly at tended, bat was earnest and en thusiastic. The committee on reception was not exactly what it ought have been, hat the towu was small and easily managed by the incoming members without UNMHiaiice. After the nsaal roa tine badness of the day the, asso ciation was given a bauqaet in the opera -ail, which consisted of a rt-gal sapper, interspersed with Biieecbeft from editor, citizens and i tingai h d men. At Viiiiii we were quartered at the Cobb House when wo were given the best and found it a first class house. The rain and mod at Yiuitu prevented our seeing much of ha city. It has a popu lation of about 4000 people, locat ed in a fine agricultural region, and enjnys a good trade. The streets aud walks in Viuita are attout the same as in Chickasha, which is sony enough, at best. The buildingf, are perhaps some lie ter, or at least more good buildings tbiiu we hare. It is among the oldest towns in the territory. On Satjrdity morning we left Viuita and went to ( laremore to catch the Missouri Pacific railroad to Kanfa City. Having several hours at this place the people of Claiemore gave us an informal banquet which was another feabf, interspersed with speeches, a noug them being a short ad dress by Hon. Mr. Breckenridge of the Dawes commission. After GRAND OKRUG OF FALL WIITER GOODS THE BIG CASH the feast the editors and girls took tne train for Kansas City, landing there at abont 7 a. m. We had a car to ourselves, And it was a night of revelry feu and short snatches of sleep. Claremore is a nice little town of about 1500 people, in a beauti ful agricultural region. The town is named after a celebrated Indian chief who who waa killed in a battle on a mound which bears his name. In this battle between the Cherokees and Osages the Cberskees defeated the Osages, killing a larger part of them and driving the remainder into the Verdigris river where they were drowned. On the mound is jet found many relics of the battle, and is a favorite place for vis itors. At Claremore we were tbe guests of Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Kates; editor and owners of the Claremore Progress. They were the life of the party. Mrs. Kates is an amaible lady, full of life, first in anything to have fun and Bee tbe sights. The people of Clare more are a eeneroua and whole- souled people. Leaving Claremore at 9 p. m. we found ourselves in Kansas City the uext morning at 7 and alter breakfast boarded tbe train for St. Louis, over the Missouri Pacific This road skirts the big Missouri river all the way down, at times having the muddy river on one side and tbe high pre cipitous bluff on the other. Tbe road frequently plunges into a tunnel through one of these bluffs. The route is very interesting and tbe road is one of the best, and trin service perfect. Mr. Allison, of the Missouri Pacific, shaperoned tbe party to St. Louis and was untiring in his efforts to give all tbe comfort and pleasure in his power, and be suc ceeded to the satisfaction of all. Mr. Allison is all right and the association could not have fallen into bauds of a better guide nor onto a better road than the Mis soar! Pacific. At St. Louis the gang put np at the Rosier house, and had every attention, going to the exposition, Shaw's Garden, Forest Park, the big E.tds bridge, aud witnessed ( the parade of the Veiled Prophets AID This was the grandest sight im aginable, the floats glittering in gold tinsel and illumination. The streets were literally a jam of human beings. Nothing occured to mar the movement of the parade in any part, and it was a night of which the King Rex could well be proud. The once mighty Mis sissippi has dwindled and shrunk into almost insignificance where once the writer has seen steam boats along tbe wharf as close as they could crowd in for two miles is now occupied by an old whirl boat or two, a dilapidated old stcrnwheeler was the only sem blance of a once mighty traffic on the father of waters. Then there were floating palaces that travers ed the waters from the gulf to St. Anthony's Falls on the Upper Mississippi, Yellowstone river in the Missouri, Pittsburg, on the Ohio, Lasalle on the Illinois, while the Red, the Arkansas, the Tennessee and other smaller riv ers added their contingent, but the greatness of tbe big river has gone in shallow waters and the railroads. With nil ita loss in river traffic St. Loois goes on expand in j. andlias an immense business, being the largest boot and shoe manufacturing city in the world, and has a wholesale trade reach ing over the United States. On Tuesday night at 3 a m, we left St. Louis on the fast mail for Kansas City, arriving there at 10, the next roorting We took in everything in sight, going to thea tres at night, seeing the the big brewerief, the Karnivul Krew, etc., during the day. One night at the Auditorium the editor was taken Violently ill with acute neuralgia in the right breast, a complaint lie has had for a year or more, but this time the attack was much more se vere and lasted longer than common, in fact holding on for two hours. The pain was very severe but he bore it rather than go ont and break the pleasure of the party, which he knew would follow him if he went out sick. The pain had done its work and he was unable to get out alone. This attracted a crowd and the editor found himself notorious next morning by having his nan e in the paper as having had heart failure. It was not heart failure at all, the pain bein confined entirely Coiitiuued ou 'Jnd piwt THE BIG CASH THE BIG CASH STOKE, as usual, right in the load with the Largest, Best, and Cheapest Line of Dry Goods, Clothing, Shoes and Boots ever brought to Chickasha.
