Straighten Up!> Don't Lose a Day's Work! Clean Your Sluggish
Liver and Bowels With "Dodson's Liver Tone."
Ugh! Calomel makes you sick. Take
a dose of the vile, dangerous drug to-
night and tomorrow you may lose a
Calomel is mercury or quicksilver
which causes necrosis of the bones.
Calomel, when it comes into contact
with sour bile crashes into it, break-
ing it up. ThiB is when you feel that
awful nausea and cramping. If you
feel sluggish and "all knocked out," if
your liver is torpid and bowels consti-
pated or you have headache, dizziness,
coated tongue, if breath is bad or
stomach sour, Just try a spoonful of
h^imless Dodson's T.lver Tone.
Here's my guarantee—Go to any
drug store or dealer and get a 50-cent
bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone. Take
a spoonful tonight and if it doesn't
straighten you right up and make you
feel fine and vigorous by morning I
want you to go back to the store and
get ydbr money. Dodson's Liver Tone
is destroying the sale of cafcmel be-
cause it is real liver medicine; entire-
ly vegetable, therefore it cannot sali-
vate or make you sick.
I guarantee that one spoonful of
Dodson's Liver Tone will put your slug-
gish liver to work and clean your bow-
els of that sour bile and constipated
waste which is clogging your system
and making you feel miserable. I guar-
antee that a bottle of Dodson's Liver
Tone will keep your entire family feel-
ing fine for months. Give it to your
children. It is harmless; doesn't gripe
and they like its pleasant taste.—Adv.

"Pape's Diapepsin" settles sour,
gassy stomachs in five
You don't want a slow remedy when
your stomach is bad—or an uncertain
one—or a harmful one—your stomach
is too valuable; you mustn't injure It.
Pape's Diapepsin is noted for its
speed in giving relief; its harmless-
ness; its certain unfailing action in
regulating sick, sour, gassy stomachs.
Its millions of cures in indigestion,
dyspepsia, gastritis and other stomach
trouble has made it famous the world
Keep this perfect stomach doctor in
your home—keep it handy—get a large
fifty-cent case from any dealer and
then if anyone should eat something
which doesn't agree with them; if
what they eat lays like lead, ferments
and sours and forms gas; causes head-
ache, dizziness and nausea; eructa
tions of acid and undigested food—
remember as soon as Pape's Diapepsin
comes in contact with the stomach all
such distress vanishes. Its prompt-
ness, certainty and ease in overcoming
the worst stomach disorders is a rev
lation to those who try it.—Adv.

Stripped of its legal verbiage, the
amendment provides tor a legislative
commission of eight members, one to
be selected rrom each of the congres-
sional districts. The commission
would bo selected by the legislature
on the last day of each biennial ses-
sion and continue until the last day
of the following session. During the
interim between sessions the commis-
sion would visit state institutions, in-
vestigate tho efficiency of their man-
agement, arrange their budget, study
subjects of legislation, have them pub-
lished in at least one newspaper in
every county of the state, and with
tho convening of the regular biennial
sess'on submit a report of its findings
to the legislature.
Bills finally passed by tho house in-
cluded the Hodge.s measure to provide
means of enforcing the inheritance
tax law, creating a division of for-
estry at the A. and M. college, pro-
riding for inspection of seed and giv-
ing the labor commission authority to
employ additional factory inspectors.
Bitter Words Over Pcwer House.
A bill providing for an appropria-
tion of $75,000 for building a power
house for the capitol and equipping
it, provoked a long and bitter discus-
sion in the senate. Several weeks ago
$55,COO was appropriated for the pur-
chase of five boilers for the capitol on
which the capitol commission had an
option. The boilers were purchased.
Recommendations from the gover-
nor, the state board of public affairs
and the capitol advisory committee
that the state make a contract with
the Oklahoma Gas & Electric Com-
pany for furnishing electricity for the
capitol were accepted by the senate
by passage of a resolution. The con-
tract offered by the gas company of-
fers the electricity at 2'i cents per
kilowat. The resolution proposed the
acceptance of the contract. Then on
roll call the recommendations of the
committee on appropriations were sus-
tained. The hi 1 was passed and the
contract resolution stands.
The house passed a bill making the
adjutant general custodian of the
Capital. The bill, in addition to in-
creasing the a.lputant general's salary
irom $1,800 to $2,500, provides for one
chief engineer at a salary of $1,800;
three firemen at $1,200 a year each;
visitors attendant, $1,200; night police-
man; day policeman, $1,200; three ele-
culture. The only executive officers
of the state that would be elected, ac-
cording to provisions of this resolu-
tion are the governor, the lieutenant
governor, the secretary of state, the
state auditor and the state treasurer.
Chiropractors Lose Fight In Senate.
Senate Bill No. Ill, commonly
known as the "anti-chiropractlo" meas-
ure, was passed iu the senate by a
vote of 23 to 14. The bill provides
that all physicians practicing in the
state, and other persons practicing in
the state, shall first pass an examina-
tion by the^tate board of medical ex-
aminers. The chiropliactors sought
creation of a special board of ex-
aminers for their particular profes-
I'ills passed finally and sent to the
house included five bills by the com-
mittee on fees and salaries relating to
employes in state departments.
The first of these, senate bill No.
3G1. authorizes employment of help in
tho corporation commission. New Jobs
created and salaries attached are:
Court reporter, $1,500 a year; gas and
electric engineer, $2,200 a year; ac-
countant, $1,500 a year and stenog-
rapher, $1,050 a year.
One new position at $1,500 a year
is created In the state health depart-
ment by senate bill No. 3G5 and sev-
eral places are eliminated, being
minor clerical jobs. Little change in

State Examiner Helped.
Assistants of the state examiner and
inspector were increased from six to
eight and their salaries are raised
from $1,800 to $2,000 a year each by
provisions of senate hill No. 364.
Next day Senator Chase of. Seminole,
chairman of the committee on f^es
and salaries, yhich had drafted the
bill, asked for a reconsideration and
amendment of the hill, cutting down
the number of assistants to six.
This unusual feature of the author
of a bill providing jobs voluntarily
asking that the jobs be reduced after
the hill had been passed, aroused at-
tention. The Idea was so novel that
the motion to reconsider was adopted
unanimously. The assistants were
cut from eight to six, the present

senators that the increase in jobs
would not get past him.
