'Jliis season we show a much larger stock of
Wall I'apek than ever before. AVehave every
thing- from cheap Brown blank to the
EMBOSSED GILTS INGRAINS g FLUTTERS.
You cannot find a larger or more complete
stock outside the larger cities. And our prices are
lower. We would call special attention to our
BORDERS AND DECORATIONS,
"We buy of the four leading manufacturers and
by selecting the best from each,, believe we are
better prepared to please you than those whose
trade will only justify their buying from one or
two manufacturers. AVo will take pleasure in
showing you our samples and request you to call
and see our stock and prices befjre you buy
Wall Paper or
AVe now have twenty-three very desirablo
shades of Mixed Paints manufactured by Bill
ings Taylor & Co, of Cleveland and .New York.
These paints we have handled for four years and
while other dealers are changing from year to
vcar, we find it to our interest to handle the same
"oods as THBV auk tiik best and have given uni
versal satisfaction. We guarantee that they will
not crack, flake or chalk off, that they will wear
as long, if not longer, look as well if not bet
ter than any other paint, or lead and oil. We will
forfeit the value of the paints and the cost of
applying it, if these paints are not found to be as
represented. Mixed Paint at our price, f$i.50
per gallon ) is cheaper than lead and oil at present
prices and we believe it much better, but to those
that desire to use lead and oil we would
have nothing but the very best, and our prices
will always be found as low as first class goods
can be sold for. Hoping to be favored with
your orders, we are Yours Kcspectfully,

How They Are Bashing to the Front to
NOT A CHOICE GARDEN SPOT
That Land Possessed of a Real
Natur Which Differs From
Views of a Visitor.
The following opinions on Oklahoma
were printed in the Beatrice Express,
and their author introduced as one who
is well acquainted with that territory
"There is nothing in that country that
entitles it to half the renown it lias re
ceived, and the boom receirea its great
est inspiration from the towns on the
southern border of Kansas that expect to
and will for a time profit by the craze
W ith a fw isolated exceptions, thcOkla
noma country is rough and broken, seam
eu wua aeep narrow canons, ana me
river bottoms are either long stretches of
sand or fathomless mud. There is some
timber, generally elm and hackberry
along the Washita river and a few scat
tering clumps of cottonwood and ash
along the Canadian and Cimmaron rivers.
The approaches to each of these streams
are tremendously rough aud the soil is
generally a red clay. In the canons there
is considerable cedar and about the only
attractive features in the county is the
immense number of wild turkey. The
Canadian, which cuts diagonally across
the Oklahama country, is a wide shallow
stream somthing after the nature of the
Platte except that the water is strongly
inpregoated with alkali. It is fed by a
number of small tributaries that find
their way through, and in most cases im
passable, chasms. These tributaries are
dry for a greater period of the year but
in the rainy season become dangerous
and irresistable torrents that swell the
volume of the Canadian to snch
an extent as to inundate its
narrow valleys to a dangerous depth.
The North Fork of the Canadian which
parallels the larger stream through the
country is even a more disagreeable water
course than the big Canadian. It is
bordered by pjenipitous bluffs and cours
es through a narrow valley whose mean
width will not reach a half mile. The
timber is scant and scraggy and is prin
cipally cottonwood and the water is so
thoroughly impregnated with alkali
and the washings of the red clay banks
that it is scarcely fit to drink. Cattle
and other live stock refuse it almost as a
last resort. The valley of the North
Fork is miry, sticky and impassable but
for the corduroy roads and trails made
through it by the cattlemen and govern
ment. For a number of miles each way
along the both sides of the Canadian
there exist vast areas of sand dunes upon
which but little or no vegetation exists,
and as the country recedes from the
river it has much the appearance of
the Bad Lands of the North Platte
country, and is called as such by the In
dians and others who have occasion to
be in the country. Here and there t?a the
high lands there are same oases of rare
beauty and once in a while along the
Washita will be found a section or so of
earthly paradise, but it is worth a man's
life to get to these beauty spots.
In brief, Qklahoma is bad oyer es
timated, it is really the most broken and
unforbidding section of the Indian ter
ritory. South of the Washita there Js really
country of postoral beauty, a veritable
Arcadia, but that country is reserved to
the Chicasaws, Kiowas, Commaunchea
and Apaches. The latter the most vic
ious, treacherous and. unhospitqble of ail
the Jndiaq tribes.
West Oklahoma is a country of nearly
equal excellence and beauty, but that
country is reserved to the Cheyennes,
Wichitas and Arapahoas.
There is one important thing in con
nection with this Oklahoma craze that
must not be overlooked, and that is that
many who go there are persons who have
already exhausted their homestead and
pre-emption rights and while I am not
prepared to say that they wilj endeavor
to duplicate these rights yet they intend
to profit by their former experience and
squat on the choice locations and hold
them for a good price before yielding
them up to those who will have 'made
proper tilings upon them. I happen to
know that this plan is to be extensively
adopted and especially by many of those
who are now waiting on the Kansas bor
der for the time when the rush can be
made under the President's proclamation.
This game will be extensively played
by ex-cow boys and cattle herders, who
know the country thoroughly and who
do not intend to make a filing at all but
hope to bold their claims by a squatter
right until they can bleed a homesteader
out of a nice pile or a team or two, or
frighten them away entirely."
