Honor on the Web

Purchasing old newspapers on microfilm is expensive and abstracting them is very tedious and time consuming. Therefore I ask that you respect my hard work and do not copy or make any use of these abstracts - except for the information that relates to your own family. I am making this information available to you for free, in turn I ask that

You Please Respect My Work on Your Behalf

If I find that my work is being stolen and placed on e-mail lists, other web sites, etc. etc. Then I shall stop making them available for free.

If you find them somewhere other than here please let me know. Thanks [an error occurred while processing this directive]

Rev W J Davis and T Wesson are missionaries of the Cherokee Nation. Rev Davis has moved to Wagoner and in charge of the First Baptist church of this city, and he wishes the patronage of every body.

Will those of our delinquent subscribers, who can, do so without robbing themselves, please come forward and pay up! It is not our desire to crowd anyone who is not able to pay, but we do insist on those who have the surplus fund on hand to pay up. A dollar here and a dollar there will help us to meet our obligations and you will never miss it.

The city is continually going up for more dwelling houses in Wagoner. This state of affairs has existed we presume, about as long as the town has existed. It is very rare that a dwelling can be found unoccupied. Many come here that do not locate because they cannot get homes. Rents are quite stiff, and those who have a right to make investments of this kind would find it a paying one. Our pretty little city is being extensively advertised, and this is bringing many people into our midst. Men who have money should erect a number of dwellings and provide a place for our new comers.
