Tried Treatment for Three Years
but Couldn't Get Relief.
HER HEALTH RESTORED
"Even My Own Folks Are Astonished
That I Am Able to Do My
Housework," Says Mrs.
One of the most sensational state-
ments yet published in connection
with Tanlac, was made by Mrs. V
Blalock, residing at 104 Crawford
street, Houston, Texas, a few days
ago, who said:
"I suffered so much from rheuma-
tism and stomach trouble for the past
three years that I became despondent
and sometimes felt that life was hard-
ly worth living. I had a distressed
feeling In my stomach no matter what
or how little I ate. My chest was full
of pain, my heart acted peculiar and
I could hardly get my breath at times.
I was tired all the time and felt so
weak and miserable that I could hard-
ly stand on my feet.
"Do you know I spent something
like four thousand dollars during
those three years for treatments and
medicines of various kinds but found
no relief. I started taking Tanlac
and began to Improve with the first
few doses and even my own folks are
now astonished that I am able In so
short a time to do my own housework.
Somehow It just seemed to suit my
case exactly and It nlakes me happy
to think how perfectly my health Is
being restored. I can eat anything I
want now and am not troubled any
more with shortness of breath or other
signs of Indigestion. I have already
gained five pounds in weight and am
Improving every day."

Lowell, Mass.—"For the last three
years I nave been troubled with the

Fire Insurance Rates Lowered.
An agreement upon the provisions
of a new tire insurance schedule whicii
will be filed September 1 was reached
after a three-day hearing beloro the
state insurance board.
Hates in Oklahoma City and every
other city in the state piotected by a
waterworks system will be lowered
materially through the agreement. A
detyease in rates also will be mudo in
brick and stone mercantile buildings
in unprotected towns. Considerable
increases will be made on frame mer-
cantile buildings and residences in un-
There will be practically no change
in the gross premiums paid on tire in-
surance in the state The board found
that the insurance companies were re-
ceiving premiums large enough to give
them a fair return and the findings
of the hearing were confined to a re-
adjustment of classifications.
All schedules now in effect were
withdrawn in their entirety so as to
prevent confusion in, adding to and
subtracting from the rales oi different
classifications The new schedules,
which will embrace the conclusions
reached last week, will be prepared at
once by the actuaries of thi^nsurauce
companies, assisted by the slate
board's actuaries, and will be pre-
sented for ratification September I.
The board found that property in
protected cities, particularly buildings
of brick, stone and fireproof construc-
tion, had been paying a rate out of
proportion with the risk, in that they
carried a burden that should have
been assessed against frame structures
in towns where there is 110 water-
works system. The exposure rates on
residences in protected cities also was
declared too high, and was cut in half,
and provision made for charging for
only one exposure instead of two, as
in the past. This will decrease ma-
terially the residence rates.
The action of the board places a pre-
mium on the construction of brick,
concrete and stone mercantile struc-
tures. and the members believe it will
encourage greatly tho building of
storerooms of permanent character in
small towns of the state
A change in the term rule was made
in the agreement. Formerly, 011 the
payment of a policy for a term of two
years on brick mercantile establish-
ments, a three-year policy was given
and on the payment for a term of three
years in advance, a five-year policy
Rates will be cut 20 per cent on
this business and a two and one-half
year policy given for a payment of
two years in advance, and a five-year
policy given for a four-year payment.
Those who figured with the mem-
bers of the insurance board, A. L.
Welch, W. It. Samuel and C. C. Ham-
monds, in the conference which c'osed
last week were C- W. Soderstrom, rate
actuary for the board; T. M. Goodloe,
rate actuary for the insurance depart-
ment of Kentucky, employed specially
by the board; J. B. Parker and R D.
Hobbs of Chicago, fire insurance ac-
tuaries for the companies: J. K, Lesch
of the Home Insurance Company and

Troop B Passes Federal Muster.
Troop B, First Oklahoma cavalry,
underwent a rigid federal inspection
last week, at the armory. Colonel
Tate of the Fifth I'nited States cav-
alry, who is inspecting Oklahoma
troops, conducted the inspection. The
troop went through two hours of dis-
mounted drill, Including the manual
of arms and foot movements. Follow-
ing this are arms and equipment of
the troop were inspected. The men
were also examined as to their knowl-
edge of the care and adjustment of
their rifles and revolvers.
Santonment at Ft. Sill Begun.
The work on the national guard can-
toment to be erected at Fort Sill, was
begun with the breaking of ground
where the buildings are to stand.
Daniel Breck. of the Selden Breck Con-
struction Company of St. Louis, is
here with a large force of men, super-
vising the work. A call has been sent
out for all available labor in Lawton
and vicinity for use In the construc-
tion of the camp. Improvements on

| more than a quarter as much as was
produced in this state.

length of time was 1.1'OT.ono.nno rubv

Federal Agents To Check Incomes.
Special Held agents will be in the
field alter August 1 to ciieck up tne
citizeus of this state liable to payment
of federal income tax, Hubert I. Bo-
len, collector of internal revenue, said.
Those who are delinquent receive
incomes of $3,000 to $4,000, it is
thought, and failure to pay has chiefly
been because the trouble has not been
taken to figure up what the incomes
Mr. Bolen said that such delinquents
are liable to payment of a penalty of
$1,000 for their failure, but that, in all
cases where settlement is made
promptly and good cause is shown for
the negligence, he will recommend to
the commissioner of internal revenue
that the penalty be not assessed.
Payment of the federal tax on the-
aters, pool halls, and the tax which

ing to J. M Aydolette, chairman of
the state council of defense
"The conservation or gasoline is'one
I of the most important questions with
j which the state council has to deal,"
said Mr. Aydolotte. Gasoline Is to be
an Important factor in the war. It is
needed to drive vehicles of war on
land, sea and in the air.
"Extravagance in tne use of gasoline
may mean a prolongation of the war.
Each gallon of 'gas' that is burned in
joy-riding and pleasure trips may
mean just so many more lives as a

ing every effort possible to obtain vol-

The report shows the total expenses
of the department last year to be $14,.
Money For the Soldiers.
The immense amount of money
spent by the government in maintain-
ing its army can be imagined from 1
the large sums that are received each i
month through a Lawton bank, to pay !
the officers and enlhted men at Fort

has been paid out at. Fort Sill. July 24
