THE TEACHER'S FOE
A LIFE ALWAYS THREATENED BY
On. Who limit. Down from Kli Tears of
Overwork Tells How She Ka<;aped
Misery of Knforcod 111lroru.
"I had been teaching in the city
Schools steadily for six years," said Miss
James, whose recent return to the work
from which she was driven by uervous
collapse has attracted attention. "They
were greatly overcrowded, especially in
the primary department of which I had
charge, and I had been doing the work
of two teachers. The straiu was too
much for my nerves and two years ago
the crisis came.
" I was prostrated mentally and phy.
si cully, sent in my resignation and never
expected to be able to resume work. It
seemed to ine then that 1 was tho most
miserable womau on earth. I wus tor-
tured by nervous headaches, worn ont by
inability to sloep, and had so little
blood that I was as white as chalk.
"After my active life, it was hard to
bear idleness, and terribly discouraging
to keep paving out the savings of years
for medicines which did me no good."
"How did you get back your health ?"
"A hare chauce and a lot of faith led
mo to a cure. After I had suffered for
many months, and when 1 was on the
very verge of despair, I happened to read
an account of some cures effected l>r
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Tho state-
ments were so convincing that I some-
how felt assured that these • ills would
help me. Most people, I think, buy only
one box tor a tri_\ but I purchased six
boxes at once, and when I had usod
them op, I was indeed well and had uo
need of more medicine.
"Dr. Williams' Pink Pills enriched my
thin blood, gave me back my sleep, re-
stored my appetite, gave me strength to
walk long distances without fatigue, iu
fact freed me from all my numerous ail-
ments. I have already taught for several
months, and I cannot say enough ia
praise of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
Miss Margaret M. James is now living
at No. 128 day street, Dayton, Ohio.
Many of her fellow teachers have also
nsed Dr. Williams' Pink Pills auJ aro

WELLSTON: As a result of an In-
vestigation Into the causes of the
periodical damaging overflows or
Deep Fork and of the enormous an-
nual losses they cause, the last legis-
lature made an appropriation to be
used in connection with a like sum
given by the United States for a sur-
vey of the southwestern part of Ok-
lahoma and to devise a plan for drain-
ing the Deep Fork Valley. The worl
is now in progress under the direc-
tion of the United States geological
Realizing the Importance of the
work, Wellston, the principal city or
the Deep Fork Valley, has arranged
for a mass meeting to be held here
August 1st and 2d, at which a general
discussion of the work will be taken
up and plans made for a permanent
organization to push the work, which
will mean a saving to the farmers of
Southwestern Oklahoma of half a
million dollars each year.

SHAWNEE: Sheriff Grace and
Deputy Will Carr went to The Corners
to Investigate several killings repored
to have taken place there. They
found that a negro and a white man
had been killed within a rew miles
oT The Corners, but both crimes oc-
curred In Indian Territory, outside or

IMMENSE TOBACCO PURCHASE.
Forty-Eight Thousand Dollars Paid
for a Fancy Lot of Tobacco.
The biggest purchase of high grade
tobacco ever made in the West by
a cigar manufacturer was made last
Wednesday by Frank P. I.ewls, Peo-
ria, III., for his celebrated Single jlnd-
cr cigar. A written guaranteo was
given that the entire amount was to
be fancy selected tobacco. This, no
doubt, makes the Lewis factory the
largest holder in the United States
of tobacco of so high a grading.—

Costly Hats for Men
'Talking about expensive hats,"
said a promlent hat dealer, "the most
costly hat that was ever made was
presented to General Grant while In
Mexico In 1882. It cost $1,500 In
gold. It Is now In the national
museum at Washington.
"Panama hats used to be frequently
sold as high ns $500 each. I re-
member selling four hats at that
price in a single day In 1872, but such
hats are no longer to lie obtained. The
most expensive Panama I have sold
in years was bought by a banker of
this city last week for $100. It was the
last fine Panama in stock. Such hats
are still worn by tho hUlalgos In
South America. They are not made
In Panama, but got the name because
that city was formerly the greatest
market for them. The finest hats
come front Peru. They are made of
the fiber of the p:ta or pineapple
plant, which is as soft and pliable as
silk, and some of them are so fine
that they can be folded up and car-
ried in one's vest pocket."—New York
FROM SAME BOX
Where the Foods Come From.
Look here, waiter, honest now,
don't you dip every one of these flaked
breakfast foods out of the same box?"
"Well, yes, boss, we duz, all 'cept
Grape-Nuts, cause that don't look like
the others and people know 'zackly
what Grape-Nuts looks like. But
there's 'bout a dozen different ones
named on the bill of fare and they are

any difference which one a man calls

This talk led to an investigation.
Dozens of factories sprung up about
three years ago, making various kinds
of breakfast foods, seeking to take the
business of the original prepared
breakfast food—Grape-Nuts. These
concerns after a precarious existence,
nearly all failed, leaving thousands of
boxes of their foods In mills and ware
houses. These were in several in-
stances bought up for a song by spec-
ulators and sold out to grocers and
hotels for little or nothing. The proc-
ess of working off this old stock has
been slow. One will see the names
on menus of flaked foods that went
out of business a year and a half or
two years ago. In a few cases where
the abandoned factories have been
bought tip, there is an effort to resus-
citate the defunct, and by copying the
style of advertising of Grape-Nuts,
seek to influence people to purchase.
But the public has been educated to
the fact that all these thin flaked
foods are simply soaked wheat or oats
rolled thin and dried out and packed.
They are not prepared like Grape-
Nuts. in which the thorough baking
and other operations which turn the
starch part of the wheat and barley
into sugar, occupy many hours and re-

No Opposition to Joint Statehood, but
Indian Chief* Want Framing of

MUSKOGEE: The Indians of th«
five civilized tribes want statehood,
notwithstanding statements to th«
contrary that have frequently been
made, and not only do they want
statehood, but they want separate
This statement was made by Chief
Porter of the Creeks In discussing the
question. He cites the recent call Is-
sued by Chief Rogers of the Chero-
kees and Chief McCurtain of ths
Choctaws as evidence that the In-
dians not only want statehood, but
aro p'reparlng f®r admission of the
Since this proclamation cfalllng a
constitutional convention was issued
by Chief Rogers and Chief McCur-
tain, Chief Porter, CMef Johnson of
tho Chlckasaws and Chief Brown of
the Semlnoles have declared them-
selves on the question, and there Is
a unantmity for separate statehood
among the Indians.
They are alllgned with the prohi-
bitionists and single separate state
advocates on this quistlon, and have
been preparing for more than a year
for admission to the union. In as-
suming this poslitlon, the Indians
are afso lined up with tl-e demo-
crats, whose original policy was for
separate statehood. Gen. Porter de-
fined the position of the Indians very
tersely, when he said:
"Oklahoma is endeavoring to domi-
nate the new state and Is seeking
admission to joint statehood with In-
dian Territory. The Indians resent
this, which explains the calling of the
constitutional convention, which
meets here in August. We want state-
hood, and if Oklahoma must be ad-
mitted as a part of our state, it Is
our purpose to let that territory come
in under a constitution framed by
Indian Territory representatives.
"It is not our purpose to oppose
Joint statehood, which we believe Is
a necessity, and we are not endeavor-
ing to anticipate the white people of
the territory In framing a constitu-
tion, but we shall welcome them to
our meetings, whether separate or
Joint statehood advocates. We do not
fear the white man; that Is not the
purpose of our convention, because
that a constitution that would be In-
jurious to our Interests would be In-
jurious to the white resident of th«
territory and the new state, but we
have ideas on certain questions that
we want to see Incorporated in the
constitution. I also think by the In-
dians meeting In Muskogee and draft-
ing a constitution we will enhance the
prospects of statehood legislation.
"The Creek Indians are the first to
take steps looking to admission tc
statehood and the other tribes have
simply followed us In our advanced
Ideas. That Is why the allotment of
lands and delivery at deeds was hast-
ened. The Indians are In accord
with all people and In harmony with
all residents of the territory, but wo
do not know whether we will get
separate or Joint statehood, but be
that as it may, if Onlahoma comes In
as a part of the new state we want
her to come In under our constitution."
Chief Porter would not say whether
he favored a prohibition clause In
the constitution, but will submit to
•majority rule on this question. Some
of the leading Indians aro strong pro-
hibitionists and an effort will be made
to Insert a clause to that effect.
