ing an annual output valued at more
than $500—increased in the period
from X909 to 1914 from 2,310 to 2,518,
or 9 per cent.

ing as reported in 1914 was $65,478,000,

act was silent on this feature and the
state did not receive the land.
It is the contention of the state that,
although the enabling act is silent, the
Morrill grant is self-operative and the
state is entitled to the land. There
is no public domain in Oklahoma now
from the which the land could be
given. If the state wins it will receive

other sections of the country.
MAUD WELL IS CAUSE OF SUIT
Minority Stockholders Want Blcck of
Oklahoma City.—Minority stockhold-
ers of the Maud Gas and Oil Company
appeared before Judge Clark in the
district court seeking to have a re-
ceiver named for the oil corporation.
It was also brought out that an effort
will be made to have the court cancel
$24,000 worth of stock issued before
and after the famous Maud gas well
was brought in. Mike Kargusicky is
the chief representative of the com-
The suit is based on a claim of mis-
management and the fraudulent sale
of leases. One of the principal allega-
tions is that only eighty acres of leases
remain unsold in the section contain-
ing the Maud well.
Officers of the Maud Oil and Gas
Company involved are: Charles Soch-
or, R. A. Jones, J. F. Straka and Fran's
Miskousky. The stockholders who
represent the minority are: Karbus-
icky, Vaclav Vrba and Jennie Vrba.

Muskogee.—After trailing Joe and
Dave Smith, fugitives from justice,
for slightly more than one year of-
ficers shot and killed the two lawless
brothers in the rocky hills eight miles
northwest of Gore. When they dis-
covered that they were trapped, the
two men opened fire on the county
officers with rifles stolen from the
county jail in Muskogee when Dave
Smith and two other criminals broke
jail April 12, 1915.
Dave and Joe Smith, sons of Fa-
mous Smith, noted bandit of territor-
ial days, were game to the last and
when the officers reached the bodies
lying in the road life was extinct.
Famous Smith is said to have killed
more men than many of the more
widely known outlaws of the old days.
Dave Smith and his brother have
been mentioned in connection with
train robberies and holdups. On
their dead bodies was found para-
phernalia used by bank blowers.
Dave Smith and Cole Shoemake,
both under eight-year sentences, and
H. C. Burnett, under sentence of two
years, broke out of the county jail
here slightly over a year ago.
TULSA PREPARING ENCAMPMENT
Veterans of Two Wars Will Gather
May 16-18; Military Display.
Tulsa.—The sixth annual allied en-
campment of the Grand Army of the
Republic and United Spanish War Vet-
erans to be held in Tulsa May 16-18,
will be converted into a "national pre-
paredness rally" on a large scale. The
idea of preparedness will be featured
in every detail of the encampment and
the spirit of '76, '61 and '98 will be
rekindled in the breasts of thousands
who will be in Tulsa on this occasion.
The federal government has entered
with enthusiasm into the movement
and has tendered the loan of the Fifth
Field Artillery band and one or two
batteries if wanted. The offer by the |
government will be accepted in part
at least. Martial spirit will run ram- j
pant in Tulsa, as there will be military I
maneuvers that will recall the days
when Uncle Sam was in war and pat- J

Ut^h! Calomel makes you sick. It's horrible!
Take a dose of the dangerous drug tonight and
tomorrow you may lose a day's work.
Calomel is mercury or quicksilver which causes
necrosis of the bones. Calomel, when it comes in-
to contact with sour bile crashes into it, breaking
it up. This is when you feel that awful nausea
and cramping. If you are sluggish and "all
knocked out," if your liver is torpid and bowels
constipated, or you have headache, dizziness, coated
tongue, if breath is bad or stomach sour, just try a
spoonful of harmless Dodson's Liver Tone tonight.
Here's my guarantee—Go to any drug store
and get a 50 cent bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone.
Take a spoonful and if it doesn't straighten you
right up and make you feel fine and vigorous I
want you to go back to the store and get your
money. Dodson's Liver Tone is destroying the
sale of calomel because it is real liver medicine;
entirely vegetable, therefore it can not salivate or
make you sick.
I guarantee that one spoonful of Dodson's Liver
Tone will put your sluggish liver to work and
clean your bowels of that sour bile and constipated
waste which is clogging your system and making
you feel miserable. I guarantee that a bottle of
Dodson's Liver Tone will keep your entire family
feeling fine for months. Give it to your children.
It is harmless; doesn't gripe and they like its pleas-

she met her little daughter coming In
