WARNING TO CATTLEMEN. All cattle introduced in this nation running on the public domain, owned by citizens or non-citizens, are subject to a tax of two dollars per head. - L M Atkins, National Cattle Inspector

A BURGLAR SHOT. Last Monday night Jake Burrows, a negro who has been around Eufaula at intervals for several months, made a raid on several residences, effecting an entrance at two or three of the places. It seems that he started out early in the night as he went to Gov Perryman's, Capt Grayson's, Alex. Sellars', Lee Sudham's, J H Crabtree's, J Burdett's, John McFarland's, Col Simpson's, S A Rogers' and one or two other places before 12 o'clock. Just after that hour Dr. West was aroused by someone in his room, and raised up just in time to see him run out with his pants. The doctor jumped up and followed him to the National Hotel where he attempted to effect an entrance through the back door, but was frightened off by someone in the hotel. He then went to the Eufaula House and gained admittance to the dining room, staying in there for some time, unconscious of the fact that he was being pursued by the irate doctor whose pants he was then wearing over his own. Dr. West went to the National Hotel and called Dave Porter, John Kinsley and A L Baird, and they surrounded the Eufaula House watching the negro's maneuvers through the windows. He failed to find anything he wanted there, though he searched the dining room and kitchen thoroughly. After remaining in there about one hour he started out through the back door, and Baird ordered him to halt. Instead of complying with the request he ran a short distance and picked up a brick bat and threw at Baird, at the same time cursing him and telling him to stand back as his partner was around the house with a shotgun. Baird again told him to throw up his hands but he started down through the garden at a 2:40 gait. Baird then filled his right leg full of buckshot and captured him. The party then carried him to Wm Sarbe's meat market and Drs. West and Bailey picked the shot out of his leg and dressed the wound. When captured he was warning a pair of John Kinsley's shoes that were stolen out of his room some weeks ago. There is no doubt but what he is the same party that was committing burglaries in South Canadian a few weeks ago, and some think that he was implicated in the robbery of Mr. McClure at Checotah recently. Deputy Grant Johnson at once took charge of him and carried him to Fort Smith on a stretcher Tuesday night. The wound is very painful though not necessarily serious, only that his leg will have to be amputated. The only thing that he got in his rounds was Dr. West's pants as he was frightened away from every place he visited.

Inspired by the daring adventures of the early pioneers, two collegiates and as many academics left last week to catch the bigest fish in the deep Verdigris and fill the forests with the echoes of their guns. As is too often the case they returned empty-handed after angling all night and hunting all day. One of the party had, it seems, a rather rough experience during the foray. He attempted to jump across a small brook at its confluence with the Verdigris and mired up to his waist in the soft mud. Another was kicked down by his musket. - Chinnubbie.
