to draw checks to pay the Indians
.money derived from the sale of land
Under the treaty of 1894. The amount
Is $41,222.60, to be distributed among
421 pergons, which amounts to $97. &2
to each person. The larger families
will get 'several hundred dollars to
each family. The Indians say they
are going to be careful how they
spend this money as they will have
but one other chance to get easy
money. And that will be for some
timber land they still own.

' best citizens. Ha belonged to that
i large ciajs called by Mr. Lincoln,
"The plain people." He was a mem
ber of the W. 0. W. and carried life'
insurance. He was born In Alogana,
County, New York, October 4th, 1842.
He was married 1 in Independence,

years ago, when he came to Lincoln

; which is the essence ot Christianity,
j "Hn word was as good as his bond."
i His home was a model of good cheer
! and happiness. No quarreling or
wrangling ever occurred In the fam

good Influences cannot help but
make good citizens. Mr. Cobb be

4 men. will excell In, honor, Industry
end the neighborly spirit thnt char-
acterlze the . people of the passing
generation. The world Is moving ai
such a rapid rate that it is hard to
tell what a few years will bring
forth; good and evil, right and wrong
are becoming so intensified that It la
hard to tell which will prevail In the
great unknown future. ' Under these
