A TONIC LAXATIVE
Pe-ru-na, an Up-to-Date Family Medicine That
Should Be In Every Home

A slight condition of constipation may
lend to serious sluggishness of the bowels,
biliousness, re-absorption of poisonous ma-
terial and finally sickness. Or apathv ^
the stomach in which the food is not ri
ished, may gradually lead to atonic dyspep-
sia or to the acquisition of some acute die-
ease. For either one of these conditions
a few doses of the tonic laxative Peruna
would set matters right. This is why the
remedy should always be kept handy by.
When once the value of Peruna as •
household remedy is understood no home
would be without it. Cathartioe, pills and
powders would be discarded. Irritating
tonics would be no longer taken. Alco-
holic drinks would have no place. ith a
few doses of Peruna ft vigorous appetite ii

of the bowels their function is gradually
Most laxatives are weakening In their
effect. A tonic laxative guards against
this weakening effect. Until right living
has become so thoroughly established that
all medicines are superfluous, l'eruna will
be n eded. It is exactly the remedy that
meete numerous necessities of the house-
hold. Bold at all drug stores.
Mr. John B. Perkins, 22 Whiting 8t,
Plymouth, Mass., writes: "I think Pe-
runa is a number one medicine. I was
troubled with catarrh and bowel com-
plaint. I tried several doctors, but could
only find temporary relief. I took Peruns
and am glad to say that it cured my ca-
tarrh and corrected my bowels."

Nearly everybody is obliged more or
lens Jo take a laxative. There are of
course a few exceptions. A great many
people also need occasionally to take a
tonic. Probably few households exist
that do not make use of tonics and
The remedy Peruna Is a laxative
tonic. It not only operates as a gentle
laxative, but also as a tonic.
The benefit derived from such a
remedy is a great deal more in the
prevention of disease than in the cure.
After a person has really become sick,
either with an acute or chronic ail-
ment, the rule should be to employ a
physician, or gome one who can give the
case his personal attention. But long be-
fore tliis happens the person will complain
of this or that symptom, which is not se-
vere enough to interfere with his regular
activities. If at this place before the di-

age and won the land from tyranny
and ignorance. This land called Texat'

COFFEE THRESHED HER.
15 Long Years.
"For over fifteen years," writes a
patient, hopeful little Ills, woman,
"while a coffee drinker, I suffered from
Spinal Irritation and Nervous trouble.
I was treated by good physicians, but
did not get much relief.
"I never suspected that coffee might
be aggravating by condition. (Tea Is
just as injurious, because it contains ,
caffeine, the same drug found in cof-
fee.) I was down-hearted and dis-
couraged, but prayed daily that 1
might find something to help me.
"Several years ago, while at a
friend's house I drank a cup of Post-
um and though I had never tasted
anything more delicious
"From that time on I used Postum
Instead of coffee and soon began to
Improve in health, so that now I can
malk half a dozen blocks or more with
ease, and do many other things that I
never thought I would be able to do
again in this world.
"My appetite Is good, I sleep well
and find life is worth living. A lady
of my acquaintance said she did not
like Postum, it was so weak and taste-
"1 explained to her tWe difference
when it Is made right—boiled accord-
ing to directions. She was glad to
inow this because coffee did not agree
-with her. Now her folks say they
expect to use Postum the rest of their
lives." Name given upon request.

For Exhibit at Dry Farming Congres
A resolution introduced by Tate
Brady of Tulsa, which was unani-
mously adopted, called upon all of the
states of the union and all of the na-
tions of the earth to send exhibits
to the Dry Farming congress which
will be held in Tulsa next October.
This resolution followed an addreso
by John T. Burns, secretary of the
Dry Farming congress, which was
H. H. Bell of Muskogee, newly j
elected secretary of the association,
and farm expert for the Barnes com-
pany, gave one of the most interest-
ing talks of the meeting. He de-
plored the fact that 80 per cent oi
the farming land in eastern Okla
hoina is cultivated by tenants, indi-
cating that this land is owned alinosi
exclusively by business men who liv*
in the cities and towns.
The following ngures show what
proportion of land on four of the east-
ern counties is not bein cultivated a;
all. In Muskogee county, according
io the latest statistics from the fed-
eral department of agriculture, then
are 520,000 acres of fanniu land of
which only 217,000 acres are under
cultivation; in McIntosh county ther®
are 42;i,000 acres, of which only 152,-
000 acres are be'ug cultivated; of the
361,000 acres of farming land in Tulsa
county, there is being cultivated bu'
164,000 acres; only 135,000 of the
876,000 acres in Pittsburg county are
being tilled, etc. The average value
pre acre of farm land that was cultl
rated in 1912 in these four big coun
ties, was only $12.25. Hence it is but
a simple calculation to see what is
being lost by the counties on the east
side of the state and it is due entirely
to lethargy. "If ordinary business
judgment wer used," said Mr. Bell,
"the taxes would be cut in two."

patriots, was tied before his identity

The Declaration of Independence of
Texas from Mexico, drawn up and
