Camp Bowie.—Things have been up-
set in a grand reorganization plan
which is being put Into effect in order
that the 36th division may bo made
ready to take the field. The First
Oklahoma infantry will be no more
after October 1, according to informa-
tion at this camp. Instead It will bo
a part of the 142nd Infantry, 36th di-
vision, army of the United States.
Thus will pass from state identity the
only Infantry unit sent from Oklahoma
to take part in the trench lighting in |
The First Oklahoma will be consol j
idated with the south Texas infantry j
according to the plans announced, and j
the two will go to make up one of tho j
new regiments with a total strength j
of more than 3,700 men, almost double j
the strength of an infantry regiment j
under the present organization.
Another change which is contem- ■
plated and which is of the utmost im- j
portance to the regiment Is the fact j
that It will be taken out of the 61st
depot brigade, commanded by Brig
Ceneral Roy Hoffman, and placed In |
the 71st infantry brigade commanded j
by Brig. Gen. Henry Hutchings.
In the same brigade with the Okla-
homuns are the First and Second Tex-
as infantry regiments, which will be |
consolidated in a similar manner In J
other brigades and the entire camp is (
upset from one end to the other.
The First Oklahoma machine gun
company is to bo separated entirely |
from the balance of the regiment, go-
ing to make one of the four machine
gun units In the 131st machine gun
battalion attached to headquarters of
the 361 h division. Other machine gun
units in this battalion will be the com-
pany from the third ana fourth Texas
Attached to the 71st Infantry brigade
of which the Oklahoma infantry is to
be a part, will be the 132nd machine
gun battalion formed of three machine
gun companies with the First Texas
machine gun company as a nucleus.
The four engineer units from Okla-
>ma are among the few that will suf-
fer no change in the new arrangement.
They will remain one battalion of the
llltli engineers of which four com-
panies of Texas engineers form the
other battalion,' completing the regi-
Perhaps the hardest blow of all fell
to tho lot of the First separate squad-
ron of Oklahoma cavalry, commanded
by Major Donald R. Bonfoey. The
four troops making up this squadrsn
will be transformed into the 111th am-
munition train. The moibr section of
this train is to be skeletonized frdm
the ejitlj-e division, mechanics, drivers
and others being selected at random.
Practically no change comes to the
fc'irst Oklahoma Held hospital company
other than ;the loss of its name. In the
future, after October 1, it will be the
144th Held hospital company
After the consolidation program has
been carried out and it is found that
there are still vacancies Tn tho ranks
of the enlisted men necessary to com-
plete the division, men will be called
here from the draft camps to fill up.
An effort Is being made as far as
possible to keep the men of Oklahoma
In companies together and to have the
same officers with the companies they
organized. In spite all of this, how-
ever, there will be a large number of
officers, especially captains and ma-
jors. and a few lieutenant-colonels,
who will have to be transferred to
Under the new arrangement General
Hoffman will be without an organiza-
tion in the depot brigade and It is
likely that many of those extra officers
will be taken to make up the commis-
sioned personnel of thrs tirlgado The

ficers who will be attached to this or

Calomel Salivates! It Makes You Sick and You Lose a Day's Work—Dodson's
Liver Tone Acts Better Than Calomel and Is Harmless for
Men, Women, Children—Read Guarantee!
Every druggist here, yes! your druggist and
everybody's druggist has noticed a great falling-

same reason. Dodson's Liver Tone is taking its
"Calomel is dangerous and people know it while
Dodson's Liver Tone is safe and gives better re-
sults," said a prominent local druggist. Dodson's
Liver Tone is personally guaranteed by every
druggist. A large family-sized bottle costs only 50
cents and if you find it doesn't take the place of
dangerous, salivating calomel you have only to ask
for your money back.
Dodson's Liver Tone is a pleasant-tasting, pure-
ly vegetable remedy, harmless to both children
and adults. Take a spoonful at night and wake up
feeling fine, no sick headache, biliousness, ague,
sour stomach or clogged bowels. Dodson's Liver
Tone doesn't gripe or cause inconvenience all next
day like calomel.
Take a dose of calomel tonight and tomorrow
you will feel sick, weak and nauseated. Don't lose
a day's work I
Dodson's Liver Tone is real liver medicine.
You'll know it next morning because you will
wake up with your head clear, your liver active,
bowels clean, breath sweet and stomach regulated.
You will feel cheerful and full of vigor and ready
for a hard day's work.
You can eat anything afterwards without risk
of salivating yourself or your children.
Get a -bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone and try it
on my guarantee. You'll never again put a dose
of nasty, dangerous calomel into your stomach. Adv.

concluded that the bars ought to come

solid wall of the cage, he pulled every

will he simply disappear like the dodo?

tience to develop Dobbin from the
primitive models such as the hydraco-

eohippus, to make him "whoa," back
and "gitap" and take his meals out of
a nosebag. In the process of civiliza-
tion he has gradually lost his toes and
has had to accommodate his feet to
the horseshoe. Does he still dream
perhaps of the delights of having toes
—of sinking them down Into the green
sqush of the tertiary era and feeling
the cool goo trickle up between them I
If so, how glad he will be some dny
to look down nnd see his long-forgotten
toes beginning to sprout once again!
His will be the thrill of the small boy
on the first warm day of spring when
he can cast off his shoes and go bare-
When the "hoss" discovers for the
first time that he can again wiggle
his toes, he will doubtless radiate a
smile of solid comfort.
