OTJBIIsnE Foreman, aas done nothing else for years and is giving better satisfaction Harry Jennings had the misfortune to fall and severely sprain his ankle last Thursday. He was standing on a chair dusting some shelving, when the chair broke, letting him fall to the floor. While amputating the arm of Jesse Jackson last, week Dr. Woodiing run the point of the knife into his linger, from which blood poison has ensued. Ho visited Independence Saturday, and consulted with sevoral physicians at that place, and Is now getting along nicely.

They Blow Our Horn. A little taffy now and then Is relished by the most of men, (And women, too.) Will S. Irvln has issued the first number of his new paper, the Ranch and rangb. It is a good paper, will receive a paying patronage from the cattlemen iu the Territory, and should receive a hearty support from the business men ol rwares came off this week at Alluwee. It was tho 'coldest reception" ever recorded.

Not-with-standinp- the severity of the weather between two and three thousand people were present, not counting the Editor of the Ranch and Ranoe and the Elevator man. Hon. Leo Bennett began paying the freedmen Monday, and by Tuesday evening they were all made happy. But the "blizzard" began Tuesday and the unsophistic collector and agent not including the Editor of the Ranch and Range and the Elevator felt like it would be a relief to have a mosquito bar or two folded gently about them. Only those who actually enjoyed humping over and standing around a smoking brush heap can appreciate the pleasures of the situation.

And when the gentle shades of night drew near, and with it "roosting time," those who never hustled before, developed this necessary commodity with amazing rapidity. The Delewares received about sixty-five dollars each, beside some had individual claims. These how ever were not adjusted. The 1 'stock" and "railroad" claims were not settled. Some of the Delewares had not drawn last payment, and they received quite heavy sums.

Business firms of various places were well represented. There was one Ham, a popular collector for a popular house, stood by "those brush fire" until his eyes were out even at the sight of them. J. D. bymes, 0f the Moline, Carriage Company, was present for a short time only.

Coffeyville was represented bv many of our most genial and enter prising business men including A. P. Boswell, J. J. Barndollar, Haz and John Read, Wm.

Selby and Son, Uharhe Davis, N. M. Clifford, John Cubine, and last but not least the Ranch and Range man. Many of the people suffered from the cold, and it is almost miraculous that some were not actually frozen to death. It would De a great convenience to everybody if these payments could be made in warm weather.

The payment closed Tnurs-day night, without any serious results, and everybody was fairly well satisfied. New Cherokee Laws. This paper intends publish under this caption one or more laws of general interest each week. Place the Ranch and Range on file for future reference. Editob.

Nowata, "sounded" the Yerdigriaat the Tellow Leaf ford on one of his passages from Nowata to the payment.

Mr, Jones our enterprising Post- Master recently applied to the M. K.

T. management requesting per mission to ruD a light grocery store in connection with his duties as Agent butihe request was not granted. Whether this was because the Com pany believe themselves entitled to all of their agents time or because a postmaster like preacher, deserve no special favors at their hands in 1893 we have not yet learned. The protracted meeting at the M. church closed on Tuesday.

Great good has been done, and quite a number have professed conversion, but the work has not been as thorough as it might have been, owing to the flvident fear displayed by many so-called Christians that the other church might get ahead of them. Our good Christian people do not emember that preaching Christ and the salvation of souls should be their object, and not the building up alone of their own particular denomination. Melvern Kansas.
