These figures are a material increase over the allowances made to them at the last session. For buildings and repairs the appropri ations for the last sessions were 234,500 which is less than half that asked from the next session The increase in maintenance is increas ed from $864,500 allowed at last session up to SI, 197,450, asked for from the coming session. But this includes $äti,000 for agricultural extension work not included in the last general appropriation, but for a a a mounting to $55,000 were made. The heaviest building expenditures asked are at the Uuiversity, the state college and the northern nor mal, at which new building are wanted.

No. 21 INDIANS ARE MADE CITIZENS Over Fifty Receive Citizen ship Satuaday. An immense crowd attended the ceremonies, ot giving the In dians their citizenship at the Agency last Saturday afternoon. Maj. McLaughlin of the Depart ment of Interior at Washington was present and presided at the event. About titty Indians were given the citizenship rights. The shooting of the last arrow ceremony was used. This is an important event in the life of our Indians. For some time past Agent Mossman has been classifying the Indians and lias tlieiu divided into three classes This class stood first in the ranks as being the most competent to handle their lands and business affairs without the assistance of the agent or the government. Class number two, which did not pass the necessary qualifications are given another trial and will try to make good for next year. It is estimated that this class will have a mem bership of about two hundred. Class number three are incoin petent in every respest and it is doubtful if they will ever receive their citizenship rights. This will put a great deal ot land in Roberts County on the tar list, and eventually will cut down our present tax rate. Will Protect Selves From I. W. W. Burden.

As he is a working farmer, he afforded a pleasing contrast to the usual pol itical!.
