The Kingfisher Times gives the
ruling of the judge as lollows in the
illegal tax assessment of Hennessey:
It is learned that Judge Burford
upon the point raised by the Hen-
nessey taxpayers, ruled that the
session of the Board of Equaliza-
tion at which the valuation of lots
'cnnesscy was increased, was
illegal and their acts void. 1 he
injunction was made permanent ami
the writ was made alternative.
I hat when the Treasurer of King-
fisher county shall have collected
the amount of tax that would have
accured from the original assessment
he will be restrained from making
•pan of horses.
"Perhaps you would not think
so, but a very large portion of dis-
eases in New York comes from
arclessness about catching cold,"
says Dr, Syrus Edson. "It is such
a simple thing and so common that
very few people, unless it is a case
of pneumonia, pay any attention to
a cold. New York is one of the
healthiest places on the Atlantic
Coast and yet there are a great
many eases of catarrh and con-
sumption which have their orgin in
this neglect of the simplest precau-
tion ot every day life. The most
sensible advice is, when you have
one get rid of it as soon as possible.
By all means do not neglect it."

Our Hennessey people seem not to

any one to take the essential steps
to secure a re-election to vote bonds.
Some few in town have gone tw a
good deal of trouble to get things in

little interest in it that they do not
feel like doing any more now and
think that if the rest of citizens fan

new school budding put up this

employment to our laborers and
would go among our
