Harvey Walker has finished digging a well on his claim and is now putting up a three strand wire fence around it.  His wheat field looks well and he thinks it would do better to keep people from driving over it.

The trade coming from the Strip [Cherokee Strip] is gratifying.  Everyday the roads from that section leading to this city are lively with teams passing to and fro.

We trust the road and bridge question will not be allowed to sink out of public sight.  Keep the ball rolling until good avenues of travel are opened up to the Strip.
