Editor Ilscoverel Xewsy Notes
" From an EnterprlHlnc Community.
A few short weeks ago the column of
missionary intelligence in an eastern
weekly contained the information that I
bad equipped myself with a jimmy and a
lantern and had gone to Oklahoma for the
purpose of opening a kindergarten and
establishing a private insane asylum where
Volapuk and the fifteen puzzle could be
taught. The item was headed a "Boom
in Home Missions" and was published
without authority. The title would seem
to imply that I was one of the Oklahoma
boomers and I hereby disclaim any inten
tion of being classed in that category. It
is true that I have been in Oklahoma, but
I only went to fill in a vacation and see
some relatives an uncle and a few red
ants who were among the early settlers in
that country. You will remember ray
starting for the new Held. There' was
something about it in the papers at the
time. The marshal escorted me as far as
the city limits and then I walked the rest
of the way alone, anon turning to throw
rocks at the marshal until his ugure look
ed no larger than a cheese sandwich in the
gloaming. Of the journey it is not nec
essary for me to speak at length. It was
a poem with blending cantos of joy and
sorrow. After walking like the dickens
swjw to a given point I acquired the
hand rail of a freight car and seized it as
I would the hand of an old friend. This
and a plug of tobacco sustained my
weary spirits through the long hours of
the night. And so on. In due time the
visitor arrives in Kansas City. If he
comes in on the railroad that runs palace
dining cars he will pull right up to the
palatial union depot and band the check
for his trunk to a mahogany-colored pi
rate, who charges him seven dollars for
showing him the cable cars. If he comes
into the city, as some of us plain and
unostentaious men do, be will get off at
the stock yards, and go up town by
band. Kansas City is a good place to
experience the tips and downs ef life.
The towin is built on seventeen hundred
acres of bills, and the holes between were
left for the real estate men to play with.
It is a good deal more level now than it
used to be. I have seen the time when
one of the streets would be cut riyht
through a bluff fifty feet high. The lots
on either side would be laid off in stories.
and a fifth story man who happened to
i an on nts porcu, would be driven so far
into the sidewalk below, that it would
take a derrick to pull him out. Now the
cable cars go right over the bills, and
span the low lands lending to the depot
The cable car is a great institution. The
tenderfoot, who gets in front of the grip
to see now it works, is usually spread
out on the pavement so thin that be looks
like a composite photograph of the seven
Sutherland sisters. Before tbey had the
cable cars, they had what they called
street cars, but they looked more like a
dog house on roller pkates. They were
manned by one scurvy mule.
wno would sometimes bow his pensive
neau ana Kick the front plat
form until it looked like the flag end of
creation. The cars were filled with the
rich alluvial soil which then graced the
thoroughfares and at the end of each trip
tne real estate men would subdivide it in
corner lots and plat it as the Pietv hill
addition . Kansas City was a good place
to Keep away irom men and it has in
creased in that respect since, although
the Kansas City man who does not pity
St. Louis from the bottom of his heart
can only be found in a saloon on the
Kansas side of tbe town.
From Kansas City to the Oklahoma
country is quite a journey in itself. If
you travel in the night time tbe scenery is
endurable, but ir you work the nay route
it will be found monotonous. Kansas is
no great shakes on climates or scenery.
If a man goes to work and puts up a
scenery of his own tbe climate is apt to
come along some dark night and blow it
over the Missouri line so far that a
requisition will never bring it back. Af
ter a fellow leaves Caldwell he soon
strikes the Oklahoma country and the
Oklahomaite commences to strike
The people of this new country have
lots of sand, or at least tbey ought too,
for that is about all some of 'em have to
eat. Tbe front yards, tbe back vards.
the farms and the river beds including
ucn ouier real estate as nag not been
specifically mentioned is composed al
most entirely of a reddish-complexioned
sand that gathers itself into hunks and
defies everything from a pick-ax down.
Lots of people are emigrating from
Oklahoma to Hades in the expectation
of striking a more genial climate and a
more fertile soil. An acquaintance of
mine left last week by the Winchester &
Standing Gallows line, which carries
passengers clear through without change
of cars or underwear. Most of the peo
ple here are only banging on waiting for
a tenderfoot to come their way. When
he does come he is hung on the fence
to dry and the fortunate individual who
encountered him goes bock to his east
ern or western home and posea as an
Oklahoma sufferer. The city of Guthrie
has a population of seven thousand al
leged souls and half a hundred saloons.
Tbe chief manufactures are drunkards
and cadavers, with here and there a fra-
gant autopsy. Tbe principal retail bust
ness is drinkig bone gravy and betting on
Over at the "Don't be a Clam,

pink spider variety, up to the No. BB,
which includes the blue camel and the
green-whiskered tarantula, with the
stuffed crimson wings. Tansy Ben, tbe
Diear-eyed terror 01 the 1'anhandle. came
into tbe Howling Dervish the other night
with a BB case on hand. He tried to set
up a little target practice, but before it
bad gone very far Ben and his vitals had
obtained a decree of divorce, and were
occupying separate rooms.
The postmaster of Oklahoma City is a
stirring specimen of western manhood
Last Tuesday a heavy-weight jay wanted
to go through a mail sack for money
enough to get back to Sedalia. He was
promptly laid out with a ten pin, and
his remains will go home in a coffee sack
if his relatives put up the express
charges. That is the kind of a growing
country mat tnis new land is.
I was in the office of the Oklahoma
Tidmgt last week just before coming
away, ana naa a long cnat with the pro
prietor. He bad sunset-drab whiskers,
auoui six weeKS oia, ana was wearing
uis unaersnin ior a seersucKer. Tbe of
fice was an "A" tent made out of rag
carpet, and the press consisted of an
ironing board and a sledge hammer. He
reported business as booming. He had
no paid circulation yet, but prospects
were good. He offered an option on a
Jot across from the court house site in
exchange for a rich brown plug of to
bacco, and seemed to feel bad when I re
fused. I secured a copy of bis first is
sue, and glean therefrom tbe following
ing items of city matters, and personal
and social gossip:
A BOOM IR STREET CARS.
A meeting of tbe stock-holders of tbe
Oklahoma Street Railway and Improve
ment company was held in the Gilt Edge
saloon last evening and the authorized
stock was raised to 110,000 000. Secre
tary Buzzman reported that $127 bad
been paid in on the first assessment and
it was voted to bond the property of the
company for $50,000 for current expen
ses, ihe line of the street railway bas
not yet been surveyed, but as soon as the
freshet leaves Main street the work will
be commenced. A shed 18x24 will be
built to keep the company's mule from
kicking at those who desire to enter the
White Front Variety theatre. ' At pres
ent the mule is stationed on lot 3, block
?. of Roscoe's addition, which juts up
against the theatre. The meeting was a
very amiable one except that Vice Presi
dent Stambaugh was hit in the face with
a beer glass thrown by the secretary.
Buzzman apologized after Stambaugh
got tbe drop on him.
A BREAK IN TUB EVENING'S FUN.
A slight disturbance occurred Sunday
evening in Denver Charlie s faro joint.
Aid. Pyfase had just bought a stack of
blues when Hasty Willie rode in on his
bronco and shot the alderman in tbe
back. He then seized the chips and
went out. It seems that Aid. Pyfase,
who is on tbe license committee, refused
to grant Willie permission to exhibit his
show of the three-headed dog and the
bleached Belgian blondes. Public
opinion aa to tbe merits of the case is
much divided, but many blame Willie for
his action in the matter. He ought at
least to have left the chips. Aid.
Pyfase's funeral occurred on Tuesday
and was one of tbe largest the city has
known. A special election was held
Wednesday in tbe Third ward to elect
a successor to the fallen statesman. Tbe
strife was between Bob Cummings, of
tbe Owl and Bat and Levi Oppenheimer.
receiving teller of tbe Ninth National
bank. Bob was elected by 1958 plural
ity, several of the other wards having
turned out to vote for him. It is impos
sible to keep a good man down.
The court house square was occupied
last evening by "Peanuts," a wild eyed
fakir from Leadville who worked tbe
shell game for three hours. He got tbe
best of several of our citizens. Mayor
Schaldborse dropped $3 and bis jack
knife and then threatened to shoot "Pea
nuts' if he didn't divvy. "Peanuts"
yielded to the inevitable and the game
went on. It is understood that "Pea
nuts" and tbe mayor cleared $36 apiece
by the evening's amusement.
Red norse Johnson, the wellsknown
proprietor of the Palace saloon, won $17
from a tenderfoot at poker dice yester
day afternoon. Red Horse bought a
limited ticket to London, Neb., and will
leave for home tomorrow .
Flossie Patterson, a waitress at the
Boiling Springs hotel, was married last
night to Hank Finn, the proprietor.
Hank owed her $26 for wages and
thought this was the best way out of the
dilemma. He now gets the $150 that
Flossie had saved up and will at once
put new fixtures in the bar. It is just as
well to be born lucky as rich.
The first baby in Oklahoma was born
Tuesday morning just as the Guthrie ex
press came rolling in with the mangled
remains of Col. Snifter. The little toot
sey wootsey is a girl and was born to
Mrs. Jeff Pollock, whose husband is in
j hi i ior knocking down a claim agent
with an axe. The mother and child are
doing well, but the father cannot recover
after the grand jury meets.''
It will we seen from these few items
that life in Oklahoma is fraught with in
cident- There is a breath of expectancy
in the air all tbe time. A man may

Are you disturbed at night and broken
of your rest by a sick child suffering and
crying with pain of cutting teethf If so,
send at once and get a bottle of Mrs.
Winslow's Soothing Syrup for children
teething. Its value is incalculable.
It will relieve the poor little sufferer im
mediately. Depend upon it mothers,
there is no mistake about it. It cures
dysentery, diarrhoea, regulates the stom
ach and bowels, cures wind colic, soft
ens the gums, reduces inflammation, and
gives tone and energy to the whole sys

taste, and is the prescription of one of
the oldest and best female nurses and Dhv
sicians in the United States, and is for

Cornell Theller, tbe compounders located

which it was decided that, although the

yet as mey were evidently designed to
