County Institute Notice
Guthrie, Okla., June 1'2, 1908.
The County Farmers Institute for;
your county has been called by Pres-
ident Connors to meet at the coun-
ty seat of your county, on July 10,
'08, for the purpose of electing one
delegate to the annual State Insti-
tute, which meets in Stillwater, on
August 11th, for the purpose of
electing ten members of the State
Board of Agriculture, as provided
by a law passed by the legislature
on March 3rd.
Owing to the conditions of rail-
roads and uncertainty of travel con-
nections, we have been compelled
to cancel all dates for speakers, and
the farmers are urged to meet on
the date named and elect delegates.
The regular yearly institute will
be held at a date in the fall or
winter when the farmers have more
time at their disposal.
Very truly yours.

Chas. F. Barrett,
Nature has provided the stomach
with natural ti aids known a* digestive
juices, and it is through these juices
that the fond we eat is acted upon in
such a way as to produce the rich red
blood that tlowa through the veins of
our body and thereby making us strong
healthy and robust and it is the weak-
ening of tlisse juices that destroys
our health". It is our own fault if we
destroy our own health, and vet it is
eo easv for any one topnt the stomach
out of order. When you need to take
something take it promptly, but take
•something vou know is reliable—some-
thing like Kodol for Dyspepsia and In
digestion. Kodol is pleasant to take
it is reliable and is guaranteed to gi*e
relief. It is Sold by
