J. P. Cummins
Candidate for County Judge of
Kingfisher county. I enlisted in
the 54th Indiana Infantry. Co. G. in
1862 and served four months. In
1863 I helped to raise Company li
120th Indiana Infantry and was
elected and commissioned 1st. Lieu-
tenaut and in 1865 w as Breveted
Major and detailed and served
as Judge Advocate of the military
district of Ralleigh, N. C: and was
mustered out January 13,1866.
On teturi.ing htrne I studied
law under Brown & Ferris and then
attended a law school at Blooming-
ton, Indiana, graduated in 1867and
moved to Quincy, Iowa, and com-
menced to practice law in the fall
of 1867. In the year 1869 I was
elected County Auditor and was re-
elected in 1872; and moved to Min-
neapolis, Kansas in 1875 and contin
ued to practice law and held the
office of judge two terms. In 1889
I located at Kingfisher, Oklahoma
and was the first County Judge of
Kingfisher county, and served one
term in the legislature from this
county. I have served in all about
eight years as judge. M. W. Hinch

taxation. I am now speaking of
House Bill 291.
I shall still contend for a reduc-
tion of taxes, economy in county,
district and state affairs, consolida-
tion of a number of state institu-
tions, the elimination of a useless
number of office holders not only in
the state, but county as well. When
we consider we have over ten thous-
and office holders in our state and
more talked, of it begins to make one ;
pause for thought and reflection.
Where will these things stop? I, if
elected, will oppose any measure
that tends to increase the useless-
burdens of taxation. At this point'
I ask the voters of Kingfisher coun-
ty to think well and seriously. I
stand for the same principles for
which I stood two years ago. .Jus

In a letter from Branch-
land, W. Va., Mrs. Eliza-
beth Chapman says: "I
suffered from womanly
troubles nearly five years.
All the doctors in the coun-
ty did me no good. I took
Cardui, and now I am en*
tirely well. I feel like a
new woman. Cardui saved
my life! All who suffer
from womanly trouble
should give Cardui a trial."
The Woman's Tonic
50 years of proof have
convinced those who tested
it, that Cardui quickly re-
lieves aches and pains due
to womanly weakness, and
helps nature to build up
weak women to health and
strength. Thousands of
women have found Cardui
to be a real life saver.
Why not test it for your
case? Take Cardui today!
