Mr. Hughes, in explaining this
measure, said today that it practi-
cally extended prohibition over the
entire state, excepting that cities un-

I, t. Russell, secretary to the
president of the convention, resign-

reported by the committer on coun-

counties lit Indian Territory was
adopted by the constitutional con-
vention today practically as it was
submitted to the committee. Not a
single proposition by those opposed
to the map was adopted and the only
changes made were of a minor char-

Found in Insane Asylum. — The
finding of J. N. Roach, a farmer of
Atoka, in San Antonio, Tex., besides
clearing up a mystery, is a relief to
a number of men who were arrested,
charged with murder, it being
thought that Roach had been robbed
and killed. When found, Roach was
insane and knew little or nothing of
his whereabouts. Immediately after
his disappearance three weeks ago
an armed posse scoured the country
near his home. His horse and over-
coat were found, and six men ar-
rested later charged with being Im-
plicated In his murder. Roach left
home to buy cattle, taking $300 with

Greer south of that line ex-tends to
a zigzag line running from Lincoln

Greer south of the zigzag line to the

Cubans Register Them and Demand
Royalties from Owners.
Americans who seek to do business
In Cuba are confronted with a peculiar,
variety of peculation—appropriation of
trademarks. The department of cora-
merce and labor Issues a warning to
all manufacturers who have any
thought of exporting goods to Cuba,
if they do not Immediately register
their trademarks, others will.
Speculators are using the trade-
marks of popular American goods, and
the manufacturer of the genuine arti-
cle when lie enters the Cuban market
finds himself compelled to buy out the
speculator if he wishes to market his
wares under the proper name. When,
the speculator registers a trademark
he has a hold on the American manu-
facturer, and he may demand and col-
lect any price.
In some instances speculators hold-
ing the Cuban rights to tradesmarka1
of American manufacturers have com-
polled the manufacturer to pay them
It is therefore essential that Ameri-
cans protect themselves by paying the
$ 12.60 required for registration and
thus prevent the confiscation of their
DISFIGURING SKIN HUMOR.
mpossible to Get Employment, a*
Face and Body Were Covered with
Sores—Cured by Cuticura.
"Since the year 1894 I have been
troubled with a very bad case of ec-
zema which 1 have spent hundreds of
dollars trying to cure, and I went to
the hospital, but they failed to euro
me, and It was getting worse all the
time. Five weeks ago my wife bought
a box ot Cuticura Ointment and one
cake of Cuticura Soap, and I am
pleased to say that I am now com-
pletely cured and well. It was Im-
possible for me to get employment,
as my face, head and body were cov-
ered with it. The eczema first ap-
peared on the top of my head, and it
had worked all the way around down
the back of my neck and around to my
throat, down my body and around the
hips. It itched so I would bo obliged^
to scratch It, and the flesh was raw.
1 am now all well, and I will be
pleased to recommend the Cuticura
Remedies to all persons who wish a
speedy and permanent cure of skin
diseases." Thomas M. ltossiter, 290

Come to Congressman's Idea.
Some years ago Lemuel Fly Qulgg,
than a congressman, expressed the
opinion that the police commissioner
of New York city should be "an In-
telligent despot." The idea was ridi-
culed then, but Mr. Quigg derives
some satisfaction from the knowledge
that the grand jury of New York coun-
ty has made a recommendation ap-
proaching somewhat closely to his
view. The commissioner, says the
jury, should hold office for at least ten
years and should be removable only
upon proof of charges which he has
had opportunity to meet.
