And now an Oklahoma woman, to bring suit for divorce, bears down on the complaint that her husband refused to change is undersclothes as often as she considered it necessary. It this thing keeps up a point will be reached where a man will have no right what ever that a woman is bound to respect.

Robert CHEYNE of Noble County aged 54, was married last week to Catherine CHEYNE, aged 50, and back of this marriage is quite a romance. 35 years ago this same couple were married in New York, but after a few years of married life were separated. CHEYNE came west and married again, his second wife dying 5 years ago. The divorced wife remained single and a few weeks ago the couple met by accident and the love of long ago was revived.

She does this in memory of her son who fell in a charge at La Quasina. Many of the boys have already received their knives and all will appreciate them very much.

Vol VI #38, Sat.
Oct 29, 1898

Territorial Topics:

Mrs. George WRIGHT who lives near the South Canadian found a mastadon tooth on the sand bar of the River Monday. The tooth is of medium size and is the second found in this section recently, the first being found by Dr. J. D. O'KELLY a few months ago. Also several bones of this large animal, which existed several years ago, have been found in this locality.
Some idea of the immense size of the monster may be gained when it is stated that its teeth were from 12-15" in length and its skeleton measures from 40-60ft. long. If it existed now the elephant would be a pigmy in comparison--Eufaula Indian Journal.

Claremore Progress:
Miss PATTERSON has discontinued her class in elocution here, not being able to secure enough pupils to pay her to come down from Chelsea every week.

Vol VI #42, Sat
Nov 26, 1898


Some of the girls of Oklahoma are going to organize a society, the purpose of which will be to entirely do away with kissing as a pleasure. Maybe they will make it a duty.

A very pretty home wedding occured at the residence of Mr and Mrs W. H. JACKSON on Thursday night when their daughter Lizzie and Mr. John SMITH, of Ft. Gibson, were joined in the holy bonds of matrimony. Rev. W. H. SHANK officiating.
After the ceremony a bountiful wedding supper was enjoyed by the assembled guests. The young people left for Ft. Gibson yesterday morning where they will make their future home.
We with their numerous friends, extend hearty congratulations.

Vol VII #43

Never Too Old To Wed
Golden City, MO. Nov. 28
,--A Thanksgiving wedding in which the bride and groom equal 173 years, was a Missouri novelty, this year.
The contracting parties are Rev. William E. PAINE, aged 88, of Peakesville, Missouri and Mrs. Mary RINGER, aged 85, of this city. Neither party had seen the other before they met at Lamar Thursday. The courtship had been carried on by mail facilitated, no doubt, by the fact that the groom was postmaster at Peakesville.
