No gift of prophecy is needed to
foretell the future of the town that

her wonderful resources will develop

It is about ao years ago since we
made ear first visit to Tishomingo.
It was then a steeply little Indian
town of probably aoo souls. There
were two stores and one inn. The
most prominent point of view was
the old bnck capitol buildirg that
has been recently replaced with e
magnificent and improving granite
structure. Tishomingo was a mel-
ancholy town, geing to seed and
decay; it reminded us of the most
pathetic passage in Goldsmith's
| “Deserted Village.” The next
morning we were glad to leave.
We must say that the modest little
in«« furnished better fare and cheap-
er rates than die present hotel. A
crying need of Tishomingo is a
good hotel. However, in the march I

will attain a certain growth and

towns along the line of the Illinois
Central that are situated almost pre-
cisely like Rivia, and they have
not expanded much in thirty years;
the same fate awaits Ravia.
The highway from Ravia to
Tishomingo leads through the
woods and the distance is'five miles.
The rain of the two previous days

r night the possibility ot one ot the
! direst calamaties which ever visited
i Texas, should fire join forces with
I the great gusher. It may be that
ness in operation. The attention
of.the outside world has been at-
tracted to tbe advantages of Tisho-
mingo and strangers are pouring in
to locate and invett. They are tbe |
best class of people we have ever
met in a new town, live, wide-
awake, intelligent, conservative f
and, with few exceptions, young
men. We talked with a number
and they said they had come to
Ti-homingo to stay, that they were
delighted with the town and climate
and they pictured 'he future in
glowing colors. Tbe feeling that
animates tbe new comers is the same
that has built cities in tbe hauats of
grizzly bears and the waste places
of toe desert. Tbeie is no mistak-
cannot afford. To see tbe ancient
city of Jnarez, Mexico, is worth tbe
expense ot the trip and since the
railroads have promised a very low
rate from everywhere thousands
will attend. There will be a
miners’ convention, medical and
terchers’ convention, the largest |
cattle exhibition ever given in Tex- j
as, besides the regular program.

Tishomingo is a dull town on
Sunday. We did not see a dozen
people on the streets. Towards
evening however tbe town began to
thaw out and there was quite a
promenande of ladies and gentle-
men. At the hotel there was a
gathering of business aud profes-
sional men in the pleasant shade ot
a large porch, and tbe hours were
passed telling yarns and pointless
1 jokes. Tbe day waa blazing hot
I and not a breath of air was stirring.
We accompanied Charley L Ginger
to his office after which be conduct-
ed us over tbe town, explaining dif
feren points of interest. Charley
is a greet believer in tbe town of
Tishomingo and he grew eloquent
in picturing its possibilities. We
have visited nearly every town in
the Indian Territory, from Red
River to the Kansas line, and we
can truthfully say that as far as
location is concerned, Tishomingo
it ahead of them all.
