TAXPAYER SUED FOR PENALTY.
Owners of Oklahoma City Packing
House Addition Accused of Delay.
| Oklahoma City, Okla—The state,
through Attorney General West, has
j filed suit in the local distric t court,
( against the South Oklahoma Town
j Company, principal owner of which is
] Edward Morris, the packer, for pen-
| alties aggregating $.18,000, alleged to
have accrued under the license tax
I law. The company lias $1,000,'000 cap-
italisation, and paid the license tax
of $1,000 early in March. The town
site is in the region of the two pack
| ing houses.
In paying the tax thr- ronipany made
no tender covering penalties, whereup-
on the attorney general sent a remin-
der. saying that it was doubtful under
the law whether the department could
waive the penalty feature in any in-
stance The town company then ten-
dered M, which was returned This
Mas followed by a tender of $70, which
likewise went back. The penalty 1s
figured at $100 per day from August I
T910, to March 4, T912.
WOMEN AND HEALTH.
Women are beginning to realize
more fully that good health is not to
be found in the use cf cosmetics and
face powders. The appearance of
health may follow facial treatment,
but health Itself lies much deeper than
Most important to the health of ev-
ery woman Is regularity of the bow els
and digestive organs. The weary
eyes, bad breath, frequent headaches,
pimples and general air of lassitude,
is in most every case due to consti-
pation or indigeBtlon, or both. There
are various remedies prescribed for
this condition, but the easiest, most
pleasant and certainly effective, is
a combination of simple laxative
herbs with pepsin known to druggists
as Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. This
simple remedy Is far preferable to
harsh salts and cathartics and violent
purgative waters that disturb the
whole system without affording more
than temporary relief.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin Is a
tonic laxative, mild in its action,
pleasant to the taste and positive in
Its effect, strengthening the muscles
of stomach and bowels so that after
l short time these organs regain the
power to perform their natural func-
tions without assistance.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is sold
by druggists everywhere In C0c and
$1.00 bottles. If you have never trieil
It, write for a sample to Dr W B.
Caldwell, 201 Washington St., Monti-
cello, 111.; he will gladly send a trial

GREATEST LESSON OF LIFE'
The One Thing Above All That a
Woman Should Be Quick to Learn
The woman who makes good must ;
be blessed with strength and health,
and an ambition to learn and take ad-
vantage of every opportunity that
comes her way. She must work with
all her heart and play with all her
heart; above all tilings avoiding in-
Hers is the temi>erament that re<
ognizes that encouragement is all i
nice and pretty, but If one Is going to
do the thing that counts one doesn i
need it; that refuses to be dismayed |
by repeated failures and that has a
certain faith that what has been done
by many may be done by another;
that nobody goes through life with
out disappointments, heartaches and 1
the breaking of pot illusions; that |
there is nothing more common than ;
trouble, but that it is the wise ones
of earth that keep it in the back
ground. That's the great lesson ol

Bad Teeth Go With Good Brains.
An English scientist has pointed out
that th^re are. signs of a steady de-
generac y in two sets of organs vital to
the well being of the human race, and
the fall is most marked among the
western nations. The evidence is that,
coincident with the mental advance of
man, there has been a diminution in
the provision of teeth. In the ape
the negro, and the white man, brain
and teeth are inversely proportional
to efficiency. Increase of cunning has
reduced the work of the te<.*th, and the
demand of the brain for blood has
starved the former; disorders of di-
gestion show that the balance is un-

ALMOST CRAZY WITH ECZEMA
"I, the undersigned, cannot give
enough praise to the Cuticura Rem-

least a year for eczema on my foot, I
had tried doctor after doctor all to
no avail. When a young girl I sprained
iny ankle three different times, paying
little or no attention to it, when five
years ago a small spot showed upon
my left ankle. J was worried and sent
for a doctor. He said It was eczema.
He drew a small bone from the ankle
about the size of a match and about
an inch long. The small hole grew
to about the size of an apple, and the
eczema spread to the knee. The doc-
tors never could heal the hole in the
ankle. The wholo foot ran water all

I would lose my reason for hours at
a time. One day a friend of mine

three days that night 1 slept as sound

I awoke in the morning with but very
little pain, in fact, I thought I was

Remedies for three months I was per-

HAPPY TIIO' MARRIED?
There are unhappy married lives, but a large percentage ol these onhuppy
home6 are due to the illness of the wife, mother or daughter. The feelings of
nervousness, the befogged mind, the ill-temper, the pale and wrinkled face, hollow
and circled eyes, result most often from those disorders peculiar to women. For
the woman to be huppy and good-looking she must naturally have good health.
Dragging-down feelings, hysteria, hot-flashes or constantly returning pains and
aches—are too great a drain upon a woman's vitality and strength. Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription restores weak and sick women to sound health by regu-
lating and correcting the local disorder?* which are generally responsible for the
above distressing symptoms. t
