Tiie IJcitrico ExprtHH, of jcaterday
publitlied a ilecriptiou ut Oklahoma as
given y I Ion. George IJ. Prerctt, after
just returning from there, as follows:
"As reginls the country from an agri

it an utter failure. The soil is of a dry

The upUuiU are useless for farming pur

Every man carries a weapon openly,
from a 22 calibre fly killer to a 44 Coifs
navy revolver with its accompaniment
of cutler-, and while no serious distur

break out at any moment. The mass cf
people that invested their all, in getting
to the strip, are disappointed, disheart

Such as were fortunate enough to
squat unmolested on a piece of land, are
in the country too late for raising a crop
this season and while matters are
enough now, the hot dry suirmer and
uccecding winter, presents anything but
an encouraging outlook for the boomers.
