Kidney Trouble Caused Terrible
D. C. Taylor, 705 E. Central Ave.,
Wichita, Kan, says: "For years I
suffered from kidney trouble and was
often confined to bed. On one occa-

the pain was so se-

I found no relief

A Woman's Letter.
Women, It is generally admitted,
write better letters than men.
M. Marcel Prevost has discovered
the reason for this superiority. "The
obvious meaning is never the one we
should read into a woman's letter.
There 1s always a veiled meaning.
Woman makes use of a letter Just as
she employs a glance or a smile, in a
way that is carefully thought out, and
with an eye to effect. And, after all,
her head? Does a woman's parasol
keep off the sun? Why, then, should
a woman's letter serve to convey her
real thoughts to the person ad-
dressed, just like the letters of some
honest grocer, who writes, '1 send you
five pounds of coffee,' because he
really does send you five pounds of
Work and Marriage.
* In the New York courts recently a
girl, aged 17, on being told by Iter
mother that she was old enough to
e;o to work, replied: "Work, I will
not; I prefer to marry." Whereupon
she was married before night to a
young man earning $8 per week.
That is of a piece with the reasoning
of another girl who, being interro-
gated by a friend, "Where are you
working now, Mamie?" answered
promptly, "I ain't working; I'm mar-

No Appointment! on State Board of
Education Made This Week
Governor Cruce signed the bill cre-
ating a state board of education late
Monday afternoon. He was surround-
ed by a number of men who had been
particularly active In securing the pas-
sage of the bill, and a photograph was
taken of the group at the moment of
The party included State Superinten-
dent K. H. Wilson, Prof. S. M. Barrett,
of the department of pedagogy at Nor-
man, W. P. Stewart, editor of the Ok-
lahoma School Herald, State Treasur-
er Bob Dunlop, Senator R. P. Wynne,
chairman of the senate committee on
education, and Representative J. Roy
Williams, speaker pro tem of the
house and chairman of the house com-
mittee on education. The pen with
which Governor Cruce signed the bill
was presented to Representative Wil-
This bill is regarded by Governor
Cruce as the most important piece of
legislation passed since statehood, and
it is the one measure in which he has
been especially interested during the
present session. The new law com-
pltely reorganizes the educational sys-
tem of Oklahoma and, places the
board of education thus created in
charge of seventeen different state In-
stitutions, with the idea of bringing
them all into harmony and making
them parts of one great system.
The governor has received a large
number of applications for appoint-
ment to this board, but probably will
not make any appointments this week.

Vinita Asylum Gets Appropriation
A strong speech by Edwards had
much to do with the favorable house
action on the Coyne-Jeffords bill mak-
ing an appropriation for more build-
ings at the Vinita insane asylum. The
bill, as introduced, appropriated $600,-
000 to be available half and half the
next two years. The guardians of the
treasury tackled it at once Wednes-
day and McClintic forced through an
amendment cutting the amount to
Anthony moved to reconsider, say-
ing that the house did not understand
the exingency or it would not have cut j
the amount in two. A general debate
followed, with the authors of the bill
vigorously defending the full amount
and other legislators endeavoring to
win amendments to trim it.
Maxey's amendment cutting the
amount to $500,000, or $100,000 less
than was asked, was accepted by the
nuthors, and the bill recommended for
passage without further debate.
Governor Cruce Sends Appointments
Governor Cruce Thursday morning
announced the appointments of J. C.
McClelland and F. G. Dennis, both of
Oklahoma City, as the new members
of the banking board under the bank-
ing law recently passed by the legis-
Mr. McClelland is one of the best
known bankers in the state and has
been connected with the Tradesmen
State bank in Oklahoma City as vice
president for a number of years.
Mr. Dennis is also intimately con-
nected with the banking institutions
The new banking law places the
banking board and the commissioner
practically under the control of the
governor as he has the naming of each.
Under the old law, the governor, pres-
ident of the board of agriculture, lieu-
tenant governor and state treasurer
comprised the board, together with
the bank commissioner. Secretary
M. M. Henderson will probably con-
tinue in the capacity of secretary of
the board. The new banking law pro-
vides for a per diem compensation for
the members of the board.

Thursday confirmed the appointment
of J. D. Lankford as state bank com-
missioner, and of J. C. McClelland and

A Doctor's Talk on Food.
There are no fairer set of men on
earth than the doctors, and when they
find they have been in error they ar«
usually apt to make honest and manly
admission of the fact.
A case in point is that of a practi-
tioner, one of the good old school, who
lives in Texas. His plain, unvarnished
tale needs no dressing up:
"I had always had an intense preju-
dice, which I can now see was unwar-
rantable and unreasonable, against all
muchly advertised foods. Hence, I
never read a line of the many 'ads' of
Grape-Nuts, nor tested the food till
"While in Corpus Chrlsti for my
health, and visiting my youngest son,
who has four of the ruddiest, healthi-
est little boys I ever saw, I ate my
first dish of Grape-Nuts food for sup-
per with my little grandsons.
"I became exceedingly fond of It
and have eaten a package of It every
week since, and find It a delicious, re-
freshing and strengthening food, leav-
ing no ill effects whatever, causing no
eructations (with which I was for-
merly much troubled), no sense of
fullness, nausea, nor distress of stom-
ach in any way.
"There is no other food that agrees
with me so well, or sits as lightly or
pleasantly upon my stomach as this
