He has the matter under advisement, and will reach a conclusion before the commencement exercises in June. The offer to Chancellor Kincannon, it is understood, carries with it a lar ger salary than he is now receiving.&rd was purely voluntary. H° did not seek the position in any sense of the word. Some time since he was invited to de liver an address before the Oklahoma legislature, and his then* was “The Educational Problems of a New State.” The address made a ptofound impres sion on the law makers, snd one of its direct results wss the creation of a general board of trustees for state ed ucational institutions, similiar to the nlan adopted in Mississippi last year. Shortly afterwards the chancellorship was tendered to him. / The University of Oklahoma is des i lined to become one of the wealthiest I educational Institutions in America, j among its assets being 251.000 acres of | the richest coal, oil and farm'ng lands I in that state. i Among educators who have been in i the city for the past three days attend ing the meeting of the Mississippi ; Teacher’s Association, the hope gener j ally prevails tnat Chancellor Kincannon will decline the honor, and remain with the institution in whose behalf he has performed such splendid work durirg the past tew year*.—jacitson news.

V On April 24th our community was shocked by one of the saddest events that has occured in this vicinity in many years. It was the fourth birthday of little Lillian Cayce Nabors, youngest daugh , ter of Doctor S. L. an Mrs. Mary ' Nabors. The mother was perhaps looking for war! to the day, near noon, when she could inform the little one that she was fully four years old; but about elever o’clock, Lillian was seized with some thing like a congestive chill, and for mire than an hour her little frame was ricked with spasms and severe cramp ing. All was done that the loving hands of mother and friends and the medical skill of a scientific father could do, bui in spite of the prompt efforts of every one to relieve her. the messenger o! dea :h pressed his way through the anx- i io is throng, tore the baby spirit from its castle of clay and bore it in triumph to the loving bosom of Him whi said ‘■Suffer little children to come unto me.” Lillian wa3 a rem irkable child—seem-1 kit*itli n mi n rl m if IIJ ... — - wyond m">st children of her years. Her loyalty to her friends of whatevei age. and her devotion to her parents and little sister have been the subj *ct of remark by the neighbors. In her child ish plays she was always pleasant ano agreeable, avoiding friction among her associates in ways that older people would do w$ll to copy. Although she* was A lover of innocent amusements, and i erflby ed the eqmpany of her little asso-1 dates to th-* fullest extent, she was! always ready to suspend business tem ' gorarily in her play house to pay her \ -espects to a visiting friend <-f the! fami'v. She was never too tired or aleepy at night to wait for an oppor tunity to bestow upon mamma a good night kis«, and other evidences of filial affe ction. The ent:re community join in sympa thy with the bereaved family, and es pecially do they feel distressed for the (onely and desolate condition of the re -, roaming little sister; but the only con eolatinp we can offer the distressed family is the fact that the choyl >hac. bound the hgppy family so hrmly to gether, though broken asunder, has become the strongest link In the golden chain that anchors their minds and h »pes to better things beyond this life. We can only say Farewell, little neighbor, till on that - bright morn.
