Rev. Berry, cashier of the bank

A Creek Indian has just been
executed for the killing of a rival

The amount of the county war
rants issued during October, '97, by
Jackson County was $3385.23;

Thk labor leader who says that
low wages comes from the competi
tion of women, and that this is why
male workmen cannot afford to
marry, is more or less right; but
unfortunately women have to live
somehow, and they must have
money to do it. The difficulty
with labor leaders is that they look
at things as they ought to be and
not as they are; but capital as well
as labor is subjected to conditions
most of which are inevitable. . For,
of course, the women can't be as
sassinated; and, after all, affection
tules to some extent, and there
are proportionately more marriages
among the very poor than the very
