A Commuter's Explanation.
The man In the Iron mask explained
"They assured me there were no
mosquitoes here," he cried.
In Strict Obedience.
Master Gregory Graham, aged three,
had been having an ocean bath, and
breaking away from his older sister
he ran all dripping wet to the door of
the living room, where Mrs. Graham
was entertaining a caller from the
"Why, Greg," his mother greeted
him, "sou mustn't come in here like
that, dear. Go straight upstairs and
take off your bathing suit first."
A few minutes later Mrs. Graham
turned toward the door in curiosity
as to what sight there had sent her
visitor's eyebrows up so high, and In
the same moment her son's cheerful
voice rang out:
"I tooted it off, mother, like you
told me to. I'm coming in now for
HIS COLOR CHANGED.

making Harold is rather green. Isn't
Myrtle—No, he's blue; I rejected
him last evening.
The Supply Come* From Food.
If we get power from food why not
•trlve to get all the power we can.
That is only possible by use of skil-
fully selected food that exactly fits
the ro-nireinents of the body.
Poor l'uel makes a poor fire and &
poor Are is not a good steam producer.
"From not knowing how to select
the right food to fit my needs, I suf-
fered grievously for a long time from
stomach troubles," writes a lady from
a little town In Missouri.
"It seemed as If I would never be
able to find out the sort of food that
was best for me hardly anything that
I could eat would stay on my stomach
Every attempt gave me heartburn and
filled my stomach with gas. I got
thinner and thinner until I literally
became a living skeleton, and In time
was compelled to keep to my bed.
A few months ago I was persuaded
to try Grape-Nuts food, and it had sifch
good efTect from the very beginning
that I have kept up its use ever Rince.
1 was surprised at the ease with which
1 digested It. It proved to be just
what I needed.
"All my unpleasant symptoms, the
heartburn, the Inflated feeling which
gave me so much pain disappeared.
My weight gradually Increased from
98 to 116 pounds, my figure rounded
out, my strength came back, and I am
now able to do my housework and en-
Joy It. Grape-Nuts food did It" Name

A ten days' trial will' show anyone
some facts about food.

Chickasha, Okla.—As the result oJ
a school district feud in McClain coun
ty in the Washington school district,
twenty miles east of Chickasha, Wii
Aurv and Tom McClendon, two schoo
officers and wealthy intermarried cit
izens of that section are dead and Dr
J. H. Colby of Purcell. Okla., is undet
arrest. Colby was wounded In the
shooting scrape which occured there
The trouble grew out of a school
feud and luwsuit over possession ol
an acre of ground upon which the
schoolhouse of that community sits.
P. W. Loder originally owned th«
land and gave a certificate before
statehood to the district, relinquish !
hig his claim to the land and donating •
it to the school E. B. Glencoe pur
chased the land and refused to recog
nize the certificate as a title or own
ership. He mortgaged the land for a
considerable amount, the deed show
ing the entire acreage including the
land where the school house stood, Dr
J H Colby of Purcell purchased the
mortgage and recently took possessior
of the land He refused to acknowl
edge any right of the Washington
school district to the land and at
tempted to build a house on the acre
of land held by the community as
school property The judge of the dis
trict court of McClain county enjoined ;
Colby from building the house and
again issued ,1n injunction against his
fencing the school land ""
No deed Is held by the school di
rectors for the property, but the
court has ruled that the land shall be
held by the district Several suits are
pending In the case in the district
court of McClain county.
Dr Colby rebuilt the fence arotind
the school property Friday night and
Saturday morning the news of this
spread Members of the school
board, amcng them Autry an^McClen

district, went ro the school property
to demand redress from Colby Colby
was there with a loaded shotgun.
A light ensued In which Will Autrv
and Tom McClendon received injuries
of such a nature as to result tn theli
death. Autry died almost Instantly |

LAWYER CURED OF ECZEMA
"While attending school at Lebanon,
Ohio, in 1882, 1 became afflicted with
boils, which lasted for about two
years, when the affliction assumed the
form of an eczema on my face, the
lower part of my face being inflamed
most of the time. There would be
water-blisters rise up and open, and
wherever the water would touch it
would burn, and cause another one to
rise. After the blister would open,
the place would scab over, and would
burn and itch so as to be almost un-
bearable at times. In this way the
sores would spread' from one place to
another, back and forth over the
whole of my upper lip and chin, and
at times the whole lower part of my
face would be a solid sore. This con-
dition continued for four or fiVe years,
without getting any better, and in fact
got worse all the time, so much so
that my wife became alarmed lest it
"During all this time of boils and
eczema, I doctored with the best phy-
sicians of this part of the country, but
to no avail. Finally 1 decided to Iry
Cuticura Remedies, which I did, tak-
ing the Cuticura Resolvent, applying
the Cuticura Ointment to the sores,
and using the Cuticura Soap for wash-
ing. In a very short time 1 began to
notice improvement, and continued to
use the Cuticura Remedies until 1 was
well again, and have not had a re-
currence of the trouble since, which is
over twenty years. I have recom-
mended Cuticura Remedies to others
ever since, and have great faith in
them as remedies for skin diseases."

Tuberculosis Patients Neglected.
Out of more than 225 public hos-
pitals for the insane, with a popula-
tion of fully 150,000, only 70, or less
than one-third, make any provision
for their tuberculous inmates, and
this, too, in *pite of the fact that the
percentage of deaths from this dis-
ease is very high among this class of
people. Such is the substance of a
statement made recently by the Na-
tional Association for the Study and
Prevention of Tuberculosis. Seventy
hospitals in 28 states, providing all
told about 3,350 beds for tuberculous
insane patients, sums up the provision
made for this class of sufferers, al-
j though the percentage of deaths from
tuberculosis among the insane ranges
• from 50 to 200 per cent, higher than
among the general population.

"There were ten virgins," said the

i filled their lamps and the five foolish
ones wasn't in no hurry. And at
midnight came the bridegroom. So
the five foolish ones went across the
street to buy oil and got locked out."
"Very good," said the teacher.
"And what did the bridegroom do?"
"Why," said the good little student,
"he married the five wise ones."—

dealer some more than othor 6c cigars,
