for his certificate. He said he had

Esit), Ok, Sept 80. The terrible
and storm that prevailed ia the west
ern part of the Cherokee atrip Sunday
and yesterday waa a most unfortunate
thing for tbe Cherokee strip, for, be
sides causing great suffering, it dis
couraged the new. aett'ers, and
hundrels of them left the
strip lat evening and to-dsy, de-
termined nerer to return.
yeaterday was about as furious a it
was Sunday, but the sand waa worse,
for tbe constant moving about of i
horses and wagons oa and near the
town sites so stirred up the fine sand
that it was blown ia the air con
stantly in a perfect cloud. A view of
Enid from a point a half
showed only a few
tents and covered wagons on
the outskirts, and all the rest was
obscured in one cloud of red sand.
Alonir the road war between the two
rival towns called Enid, teams and Tb following doubtful compliment is a
wagons were constantly passing and, fragment from a love letter: "How I
seen from adlatance, the roadway was i wiA mr darling Adelaide, my engage

nccting two other clouds, one at each com nd jo- It would be like vis
townslte. Men wore handkerchiefs ,tln on, old ru". hallowed by time and
over their faces to protect their eyes. fraught with a thousand recollectiona"
Silk handkerchiefs were better for There is in New York a watch which
this purpose because they are easily tbe. thieves of that city are likely to let
seen through, and they could have alone in future when they recognise it
been sold by the hundreds at high ! Three men are now serving long terms of
pricea Oogglea or any other protec- i imprisonment for stealing it, and a fourth
tion for the eyes, save handkerchiefs, bas Just been arrested for purloining It
It was absolutely impossible to get, The owner of tbe watch is John Curven,
ana a man wun goggies mignt nave
sold thousands at a dollar a pair.
More money than that waa offered for
pairs that some people hsd bad the
forethought to bring along with them,
but they refused to part with
theio. The fine, red ' sand sifted
into every crack and crevice,
and food of all kinds that some peo
ple were fortunate enough to have
was made almost unfit to eat The
great scarcity of water on a hot, dusty
day added to the suffering of the peo
ple. Even the supply of alkali water
ran short and the price was raised.
Pop became almost the sole article of
drink, the deputy marsha'a having
early in the day arrested the men who
were selling beer at fifty cents a
bottle. Few people made any pre
tense of washing their faces or
hands while the gale
last evening, when the
lasted, but ,
down, many people wanted to wash,
and a wise man at the railroad
atation at Enid bought alkali water
at 2 a barrel, got their wash basins
and let people get in line and wash
their bands and faces at five cents
apiece. More than 500 people washed
themselves at this price and they all ,
wiped on three towels, the man being
unabie to get more.
Whether the railway will or will
not recognize the government towns '
of Enid and Pond Creek ts now the all ,
obsorbing question. As the railway's
officers own tbe site of rival towns,
they probably will not if they can
help it The government Enid Is ten
times the size of the railway Enid
and four miies from it, but
without a side track o r , sta
tion facilities. The trains barely
whistle as they pass by. The
railway Enid haa a station, two side
tracks, a water tank and a section
bouse, but it has nopoetofiice nor land
office, as the other Enid haa Just
now the railway is a necessity and tbe
10,000 people at the government Enid
have to haul their lumber and supplies
from the railway Enid, while the
1,000 people in railway Enid have to
go to the rival town for their mail
The situation is tbe same at the two
Pond Creeks, though the places are
smaller and less important
Last night many people at Enid
knelt together on the railway plat
form and prayed aloud for rain, but it
didn't come , and they saw only oc
rasional flashes of lightning near the
Western horizon. A good rain to day
or to-morrow might change the whole
future of the Cherokee strip. Another
week of hot winds and sand storms
will make an Impression it will . take

The other day, ia speaking of the im
proved facilities for luxurious travel la
this country saye:
"We are abandoning the eld system
of lighting the cars with kerosene
lamps, and more than half the ooachee
have already been equipped with the
most Improved and the safest system of
lighting known in this country or
Europe. With the new Pintsch lamps
there can be no possibility of danger
from exploeioa or otherwise, as tbe
apparatus is all but side and under the
car, and in the event of mishap, the
fixtures beoome detached and the gas
escafes Into the air."

car llluminant in existence, now lu
on the Union Farlflo System fulfills al
the rcaulstte conditions so nstiDll
