The Wheat Crop
      Three weeks ago the farmers in this vicinity were estimating their wheat crops at from 20 to 40 bushels per acre. Today they place the best crops at from 15 to 20 bushels. The change in conditions was caused by the dry spell which struck us previous to June 1st succeeded by heavy rains since that time, in part. Rust and chinch bugs did the rest and the wheat was prematurely ripened. A source of discouragement to the farmers was occasioned by the collapse of the Leiter wheat deal which put the price of cash wheat down from $1.75 to 80 cents per bushel. However, should the opinion of prominent wheat operators prove well founded, cash wheat is now 25 cents per bushel too low. Reports of damage and premature ripening are coming in from all quarters and the crop will be many millions of bushels short of the estimate in the United States. Corn here is in a flourishing condition and promises to prove a big crop.

Three Men Killed at Claremore.
      News reached this town last night to the effect that Bill Newsome, a horse trader, had been the means of ending the career of three men at Claremore Wednesday night. From the meager information gleaned it appears that all three of the parties were whiskey peddlers whom Bill tried to arrest. Some resistance was offered on the part of the trio whereupon Newsome pumped their bodies full of lead. Two white men and a negro compose the parties killed. Bill Nesome is well known both at Muskogee and Tulsa, and during the races here last month made himself conspicuous by always carrying a large gun and talking loud. At one time he was deputy constable at Muskogee.

Beef Cattle.
Farmers and small stock men mush not be deceived by the exceedingly high prices paid in the past few months by local buyers here for beef cattle into the belief that these prices will continue. At no time in the pst four months could these cattle have been shipped to market at prices paid for them here. However the market has not went to pieces by any means, and the price for good fat beef is still at a much higher figure than for many years previous to 1897. Good cows find ready sale here at all times of the year, and at present good fat cows are worth $2.50 to $2.60 per hundred, with steers a good 50 cents per hundred higher.

      The sudden rise in the hog market in May was conducive to the marketing of many half fat hogs and brood sows, and right there the farmer is making a mistake. It never pays to market a half fat hog, for it knocks the market down and takes the dollar out of the farmers pocket which he would have made had he held his hogs and made them fatter and better. The, too, the marketing of the brood sow is cutting them short of feeders for the growing crop.

    Judge Yancy will adjourn court at this place Saturday. The Judge is probably the youngest commissioner in the Indian Territory, but his knowledge of law is quite in excess of his age and his rulings are such that win him favor in the eyes of the people. His holdings are always administered with a sense of justice to all parties concerned and in him this district has a man who graces the bench over which he rules.
    When Christ began to preach the gospel he cose no particular place. It was all the same to him whether he was in the Baptist church, the Methodist or Presbyterian. He never in any instance referred to sectarianism or asked people to join "our" church. Sectarianism was not his object, but a higher and nobler purpose, that of placing the feet of men and women in a pure path leading to a better life.
