I suffered with Dright's disease which

so weak, I had to take

be carrying me to my grave."

Osages Will Get $135
Pawhuska, Okla.—*-Word has been
received from Washington announc-
ing that the December payment to
the Osages would be $135 per head, a
total of $312,000 to be disbursed. Of
this amount $45 per head comes from
'he interest on the Osage tribal funds
in the United States treasury. The
other $90 is from the accumulated
royalties on oil and gas produced on
Osage lands under the old Foster or
blanket lease. The revenues from
these sources being reserved to the
tribe for a period of twenty-live yefirs
from 1906. The payment will probably

"My son was about three Weeks old
when I noticed a breaking-out on his
cheeks, from which a watery sub-
stance oozed. A short time after, his
arms, shoulders and breast broke out
also, and in a few days became a solid
scab. 1 became alatmed, and called
our family physician who at once pro-
nounced the disease eczema. The lit-
tle fellow was under treatment for
about three months. By the end of
that time, he seemed no better. I be-
came discouraged. I dropped the doc-
tor's treatment, and commenced the
use of Cuticura Soap and Ointment,
and in a few days noticed a marked
change. The eruption on his cheeks
was almost healed, and his shoulders,
arms and breast were decidedly bet-
ter. When he was about seven months
old, all trace of the eczema was gone.
"During his teething period, his
head and face were broken out in
boils which I cured with Cuticura
Soap and Ointment. Surely he must
J have been a great sufferer. During
the time of teething and from the time
I dropped the doctor's treatment, I
used the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment, nothing else, and when two
year3 old he was the picture of health.
His complexion was soft and beauti-
ful, and his head a mass of silky curls.
I had been afraid that he would never
be well, and I feel that I owe a great
deal to the Cuticura Remedies."

• During the course of a reply to an
address presented to Hon. Robert Rog- ,
ers, the newly appointed Minister of
the Interior of Canada at a banquet !
given at Winnipeg in his honor that 1
gentleman spoke on Immigration. The
tone of his remarks was that he intend- j
ed to pursue an aggressive and for-
ward policy in the matter of immigra-
tion. In part,' he said:
| "The most important branch per-
! haps of that department'(Interior) is
j that' of immigration.
I "If there is aiything more than an- [
i other we want here it is a greater pop- '
j ulation, and it shall be my duty to pre-
sent to the people in all parts of the i
j world where desirable emigrants are
I to be found the advantages and the j
great possibilities of this country. We
have received in the past a reasonably
j large immigration from south of the j
[.International boundary, and In thia
I connection let me say just a word for
our American coifslns who have foilmi
j happy homes amongst us, and those
w hom we hope to welcome in greater
i numbers in the years to conic'. There
are hundreds of thousands ot them In
!*our prairie provinces, happy in the en-
joyment of a freedom as great as they
ever knew, and all contributing in a
material way towards the development j
of Canada. We are not blind to their
value as settlers. They come betler
equipped with scimitiilc farming
knowledge than most of our emi- j
grants, and constitute Without doubt I
th<' wealthiest class of emigrants any i
new country has ever known. As 1
head of the immigration department it
( will be my privilege to offer them a
welcome hearty and sincere, and to
so contribute to their welfare that un-
der the protecting folds of the Union
Jack they will enjoy as great a degree
of liberty and happiness as under the
Stars and Stripes. The Borden gov-
ernment cherishes nothing but the
kindliest feelings for the people of the
great republic to the south, and will
do all in its power to increase the
bonds of kinship and neighborly good
feeling that has so long existed.
; (Hear, heaV.)
"While we-adopt a' vtg6rous emi-
gration policy in that country, we will
also adopt the same vigorous jiolicy in
I other parts of the world. We will go
to England, Ireland and Scotland, and
every other country irrespective of
race, creed or nationality, where we
can find suitable and desirable emi-
grants for this great country. I think
much good work can be done in those
countries, and especially perhaps at
the present time in England, Ireland
and Scotland. Now, then, it will be
my duty to stir up that policy in the
most vigorous manner possible."
Nothing to Write About.
A new reporter on a western paper
was assigned to go to a church meet-
ing and get a story of It. He went.
When he came back the city editor |
"How did it pan out?"
"Oh," said the reporter, as he stuck j
his foot on the desk and lighted a
cigarette, "there was nothing doing. I j
haven't got anything to write. The j
meeting broke up in a fist light be- |
tween the minister and the deacon, i
and not a bit of church business was j
done."—Saturday Evening I'ost.
No Need to Hurry,
Theatrical folks love to tell of a
I Western manager, now prominent in
the business, who made fame and for-
tune as proprietor of a small variety
house In San Francisco.
The thrifty German had accumulat-
ed considerable money, and was
about K> open a new the-.er. Several
hours before the first performance
the entrance was packed, and the
manager in trying to reach the front
door became hopelessly imprisoned
In the crush.
'Here, here," he yelled, "peeples,
peeples, it's me—it's Mr. Warner!"
As no one appeared to take any no-
tice of him he again yelled at the top
of his voice:
. "Vatt a minutes, peeples. Vat's de
use or pooshing lige dis? Take your
time—de first two acts Is rotten."
Was In Real Trouble.
A passenger who escaped uninjured
from a serious railway smash, seeing
a fellow traveler searching anxiously
among the wreckage with a lantern;
offered to assist in the search, and,
thinking the old man had lost his
wife, asked in sympathetic tones:
"What part of the train was she In?"
Raising his lantern and glaring fit the
kindly disposed passenger, the old
man shouted with Indignant distinct-
ness that triumphed over physical In-
firmity "She. sir! she! I am look-
ing for ray teeth!"
is just a symptom.

I Headache, dizziness, bad taste in the mouth,
coated tongue, bad complexion, are all signs of liver
trouble—of clogging up of the natural health-channels,
by overflow of bile, indigestion, and similar troubles'
If you suffer from any of these disagreeable symptoms;
if your meals don t , taste right; if your appetite is
poor, if the food you eat doesn't digest; if you have
chills, fever, malaria, etc., the first thing to do is to pur-
ify your system with a general,cathartic, liver medicine •
For more than 70 years ' •
the old, reliable, vegetable, liver medicine, has been ®
in successful use for just such troubles. •
