Mystery of Supposed Death of Terry
Cleared; Two Admit Perjury.
Poteau Thg atory tbul J. W. (Bud)
Perry of Heavener, and CaulKu-
vllle, Ark., wIa> wa discovered alive
ten yeara after hl supposed skeleton
I waa fouud, was Invented for ths pur-
pose of collecting |3,000 life insur-
ance, according to Sam Swlder, ar-
rested last week, who, with Louis Mc-
Klbben, of Mena, Ark., testified In
court that they witnessed the death
of Terry at the hands of W. L. Bates,
Millard Vaughn and Will Stiles, who
wore acquitted of murder charges aft-
er :i memorable court battle. Terry
was found last August in a hospital
at Los Angeles, Calif., and Is now
In Caulksvllle, tho scene of his boy-
hood, attempting to overcome the rav-
ages of tuberculosis.
Swlder Is confined in the county jail
awaiting an opportunity to plead
guilty to three charges of perjury.
Like McKibben, he admits the ghastly
story of Terry's ueath is a pure falsi-
fication. McKibben pleaded guilty in
the district court to two charges of
perjury and was sentenced to servo
twenty-five years In the penitentiary.
Swlder was arrested at the home of
his sister, near Braden, while on a
, visit there.
Officers had long watched the place
In anticipation that Swider would
come there. Swider declares that re-
' latlons who were instrumental in hav-
ing a search made for tie missing
man who disappeared from Heavener
,n August of ls>07 are innocent of the
plot to collect the insurance. He told
authorities that the scheme was in-
vented by a resident of Heavener who
visited him in the Oklahoma peni-
, tentiarv at McAlester where Swider
was serving a five year term for torse
stealing and promised to secure h:s
liberty if he would swear Terry was
>lain in a fight with Bates. Vaughn
A jury trying the defendants joint ,>
was unable to asree and at a second
•earing Stiles was tried separate.y
and acquitted The state then dis-
missed the charges against Vaughn
and Bates. Terry was returned from
I.os Angeles on a warrant charging
him with the murder of John. Doe
The charge was dismissed
Ugh! Calomel Sickens; Salivates!
Please Try Dodson's Liver Tone
I am sincere! My medicine does not upset liver
and bowels so you lose a day's work.
You're bilious! Your liver is slug-
gish! You feel lazy, dizzy and all
knocked out. Your head is dull, your
tongue Is coated; breath bad; stomach
sour and bowels constipated. But
don't take salivating calomel. It makes
you sick; you may lose a day's work.
Calomel is mercury or quicksilver,
which causes necrosis of the bones.
Calomel crashes into sour bile like
dynamite, breaking It up. That s when
you feel that awful nausea and cramp-
If you want to enjoy the nicest, gen-
tlest liver and bowel cleansing you
ever experienced just take a spoonful
of harmless Dodson's Liver Tone to-
night. Your dmggist or dealer sells
you a bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone
for a few cents under my personal
money-back guarantee that each spoon
ful will clean your sluggish liver bet-
ter than a dose of nasty calomel and
that it won't make you sick.
Dodson's Liver Tone is real liver
medicine. You'll know it next morn-
ing because you will wake up feeling
line, your liver will be working, your
headache and dizziness gone, your
stomach will be sweet and your bowels
regular. You will feel like working;
you'll be cheerful; full of vigor and
Dodson's Liver Tone Is entirely
vegetable, therefore harmless and can
not salivate. Give it to your children.
Millions of people are using Dodson's
Liver Tone instead of dangerous calo-
mel now. Your druggist will tell you
that the sale of calomel is almost
stopped entirely here.—Adv.

MOTHERS, ATTENTION I
Custer, Okla.—"I am sure that I owe
my present health to Dr. Pierce s medi-
cine. During each expectant period I
used Favorite Prescription and am
sure it saved me a world of suffering.
I am a Christian and first began using
this medicine because it did not have
alcohol in it. I recommend it to every
young mother especially. Several I
have recommended it to In this neign-
borhood have used it and now praise
it as highly as myself. I want to say,
too, that my little boys are fine,
I healthy children, and I take pleasure
In writing this letter. Dr. Pierces Fa-
