It would appear that the Kicka
poo reservation lost its reputation
when it' ceased being reserved. So
far only some 440 farms have been
staked off out of a possible 24,000.
The other boomers are coming

While plowing on an island In
Missouri a man recently unearthed
a rusty tin box containing $2700, a
diamond ring and a gold watch.
The ground had just been cleared
and the box was found under.a log
turned up by the plow. He says
the paper currency is in good con
dition and is undoubtedly genuine
and that the dates on the coins
show that the box was buried over
,a quarter of a century ago.
Hebe is something worth trying,
says an exchange, should you have
occasion: "There is no use wait
ing the floor with a felon," says a
gentleman who has had experience
in that direction. "Wrap a cloth
closelv around the felon, leaving
the end open. Pour gun powder in
the end and ehuke it down until
the felon is covered. Then keep it
wet with camphor. In two hours
the pain will be relieved and n
perfect cure quickly follow."
The great iron industry ot the
United States .is now inoking up
and the big manufactories are
nearly all running on full time.
This of itself is a propitious out
look. Following closely nil periods
of close financial times of our
country it will be seen that this
has been the first industry to move
from its lethargy. And it is so
now. A cheerful view of coming
eventB is surely being imbued into
the spirit of the times.
One of the most wonderful clocks
in the world is being exhibited in
St. Petersburg. It was originally
manufactured for the late Duke
Charles, of Brunswick, who be
queathed it to the Swiss confedera
tion. There are no fewer than
ninety-five faces to this colossal
timepiece. It indicates simultane
ously the time of day at thirty
different spots of the earth's sur
face, beside the movement of the
earth around the sun, the phases of
the moon,the signs of the zodiac,the
passage over the meridian of more
than fifty stars of the" Northern
Hemisphere, and the date accord
ing to the Gregorian, Greek, Mus
sulman and Hebrew calendars. So
complicated are the works that
it took two, years to put them to
gether after the clock had been !
sent in detached pieces from Swit

Ourt order could leaid , a very
valuable lesson from the doctrin of
tho Quaker, or Friends' Church.
That organization teaches, .and
early instills in its' members the
fact that there is no profit or gain
in any of the courts, and they put
it in this way: "The man who
wins, loses, and the man who loses
is robbed." It conies about as near
the pratical truth as it is possibly
can; in fact, its truth itsolf. How
many have learned that truth to
their Borrow? ' Our organisation
has kept pretty dear of the courts, '
considering all things, and now it
iB entirely too late in the day to re
sort to a method where it is bo pub
licly known and dearly under
stood that "he that wins loses, and
he that loses is robbed." Brothers,
whatever our differences may be
in our order let us settle them out
Peter H. Burnett, ex-governor
of California, who was a pioneer
Oregonian, left an estate valued at
about $U7,000. His will, which
has been filed for probate, is re
markable for the advice it gives
rather than for the bequests. It
was made four years ago when
Burnett was eighty-four yearc old.
The seven sentiments which the
simple old governor desired to per
petuate in his will are: "Pay yuor
honest debts; never disgrace the
family; be just to all men, yourself
included; assist your honest, sober
and industrious relatives; property
is only desirable for two purposes:
To procure the necessaries of life
and to be, more able to be chari
table; be intimate only with good
people; have faith in God and your
country." Governor Burnett had
$65,000 in government bonds to
back up his first sentiment .and
the remaining six came easy.
The following from the Baleiu
Post is of a very serious character,
and puts a new phase on the char
acter, of some of the members of
the last legislature, and it is.no
wonder they stood in with railroad
commissions and jobbery gener
ally. Some of the rooms in the
state houBe are undergoing a few
needy repairs in the way of kalso
mining and frescoiugthe ceilings.
The room occupied by some of the
committees during the last legisla
ture were left in a very filthy con
dition; the caTpets were spoiled by
tobacco juice and tho ceilings
ruined by smoke. It looks -very
much as though some of the mem
bers or the clerks might have been
raised in a pig pen, if their quarters
were to be judged. Many of the
chairs and tables were also broken
and rendered useless, all of which
are of the most expensive quality,
and when the next session is called
these broken articles will have to
be replaced by new ones.
There never wag a time in the
history of the nation when insur
ance was so cheap and when the
necessity ol it was so great as at
the present. Every man who has
a dependant should secure protec
tion for such one by taking a pol
icy in some responsible order. Al
most any order is good enough for
membership, and the man ur wo
man seeking protection -fo.' those
nearest and dearest to them, can
not miss it by uniting with any
good fraternal beneficial order. In
surance in an old line insurance
company is too expensive for a per
son of ordinary means to carry;
but in a fraternal beneficiary order
the cost is so 'reasonable that a
poor man can easily meet the ex
pense if ho so desires. No one pos
sessing a spark of love or affection
for their dear ones would hesitate a
a moment to give' the protection
when assured of the small cost at
tached thereto. Now, to any men
or women who have not secured
nsuranee on their. lives in favor of
their dependants we say: Come,
join our order and protect your
loved ones. Frater.
