highly of Lydia & Pinkham's Vegeta-

other weaknesses. I
was very irregular
and would have ter-
rible pains so that I
could hardly take a
step. Sometimes I
would be so misera-
ble that I could not
sweep a room. I
doctored part of the
time but felt no
change. I later took Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound and soon
felt a change for the better. I took it
nntil I was in good healthy condition.
I recommend the Pinkham remedies to
all women as I have used them with such
good results."—Mrs. Milford T. Cum-
Mings, 822 Harmony St, Penn's Grove,
Such testimony should be accepted by
all women as convincing evidence of
the excellence of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound as a remedy for
the distressing ills of women such as
displacements, inflammation, ulceration,
backache, painful periods, nervousness
and kindred ailments.

Throughout his career Napoleon suf-

Napoleon's Judgment of men was In-

is reputed to possess the same faculty

Kerensky Is an Impassioned orator

Llttls Incidents and Accidents That
Go To Make Up A Week's History
Of A Great Common-
The eleventh annual State Fair and
Exposition passed into history as the
most successful ever held here. Al-
most from the opening minute, rec
ords made in past years were smasu
The Fair just passed was witnessed
by more people man auy precediug
one. Up to the closing hour 15b,U4t)
persons had passed through the three
turnstiles at Hie main entrance to tilt
Fair grounds. The total attendance
tor last year was 127,210.
This year's exhibits of cattle, also,
it is conceded, place the Oklahoma
Stale Fair hrst among southwestern
events of its kind. Veteran livestock
exhibitors declared last week that the
showing oi cattle is exceeded only uj
two other western shows—the Royai
In Kansas City and the International
The wonderful showing made by
Oklahoma breeders in the livestock
department this year was especially
gratifying to state officers, State Fair
otlicers and those having the interest
of the livestock industry in this state
at heart. Exhibitors showing herds
and individual animals raised in this
state this year took more prizes ana
championships than ever in the his-
tory of the Fair. There is no question
but that the influence of past Fairs
has had much to do with the improve-
ment of livestock in Oklahoma, in the
belief both of breeders and Fair of-
Financially, the Fair was also a sue
cess. No figures as to the profits of
this year's Fair were available at the
general offices but I. S. Mahan, secre-
tary of the association, believes that
the total will approach that of last
year, when $22,000 was cleared. All
profits this year will be put into im-
provements on the grounds and equip-
ment, as is the usual practice.
One of the events in which great
Interest was manifested was the
awarding of premiums in the agricul-
tural department. Blaine county, ol'
which Watonga is the county seat,
won first prize with a score of 824.2
out of a possible 1,000 points. First
prize was a cash award of |200.
Grady County Second.
Grady county, of which Chickasha
is the county seat, missed first place
by a narrow margin. Its score was
823.50. Second premium was $150.
Comanche county placed third with
a score of 823.12. Its premium was
$125. Lawton is the county seat.
Following is the standing of other
contestants in the agricultural depart
ment, their scores and premiums:
Kiowa, fourth, 819, $100; Coal, fifth,
810.87 $95; Tulsa sixth, 809.50, $90;
Canadian, seventh, $806.90, $85;
Johnston, eighth, 806.12, $80; Harmon,
ninth, 804.10, $75; Oklahoma, tenth,
797 $70; Jefferson eleventh, 793.25,
$65; Creek, twelfth, $785.12, $60; Car-
ter, thirteenth, 765, $55; Pittsburg,
fourteenth, 764.37, $50.
The remaining counties, who receiv-
ed no cash awards, and their standing
in the contest are:
Custer, fifteenth, 761; Greer, six-
teenth, 748.62; Latimer, seventeenth,
738.62; Payne, eighteenth, 734.25; A1
falfa, nineteenth, 699; Hughes, twen-
tieth, 688.75; Beckham, twenty-first,
673.25; Leflore, twenty-second, 525.50.

Oklahoma City.—Resolutions con-
demning the action of militant mem-
bers of the woman suffrage congres
sional union in harrassing President
Wilson by picketing the White House
at Washington were passed by the
Woman's Suffrage Association of Ok-
lahoma at its annual meeting held at
the Chamber of Commerce roms.
Such methods are characterized aa
"unpatriotic" and "impolitic." The
co-operation of the state organization
is tendered the president.
Officers elected by the association
were: President, Mrs. Adelia Stevens,
reelected, Oklahoma City; vice presi

During the luncheon hour for the
editors at the State Fair, Mrs Frank
B. Lucas, who is a member of the
State Woman's Suffrage Asociation,
also a member of the Press Associa-
tion, interviewed the editors as to
what their attitude will be towards
suffrage when they put on their cam-
paign, and without exception the edit-
ors pledged their support to the suf-

EASY JOB. BIG MONEY, JAIL
Former Miami Soda Jerker Gets $210
a Week as Booze Hauler; Is Caught
Tulsa—There are innumerable open-
ings in Tulsa for good looking, stylish
dressing young men, and the pay is
extraordinarily good. Two hundred
and ten dollars a week can be earned
by those who are industrious. All that
Is required is to ride in high-powered
motor cars from Tulsa to Joplin and
back again, each trip requiring two
But, there is some risk connected
with the job. Orie L. West, former
Miami soda jerker, will testify as to
the risk. He is out under $1,500 bond
for transporting liquor. Orle was dis-
pensing beverages In trie mining town
one day when a business-like man
asked him if he couldn't use a larger
salary. Orie could. He listened to
the story the stranger spun, doffed his
white jacket and apron and came to
Tulsa. Orie made two trips to Joplin
and upon his return to Tulsa he was
paid $70 for each journey. But federal
officers caught Orie on the third trip
just as he was nearing Tulsa, almost
in a stone's throw of his destination.
ANOTHER MURDER IN FEUD
Sam Williams Shot Down On Streets
of Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma City.—Sam L. Williams,
banker and ranch owner of Purcell,
was shot and almost instantly killed
by O. C. Patterson, i% Oklahoma City
The tragedy took place just before
dinner on North Robinson avenue,
near the intersecting of Main street,
in the center of a big Fair crowd.
Patterson shot Williams when the
two men met at a point twenty feet
north of the Main street line.
The shooting is a result of A feud
of long standing between the Wil-
liams and Patterson families.
Wade Williams, son of Sani L. Wil-
liams, killed Patterson's father, last
October. This killing resulted from
alleged relationship of Williams and
his son with one of Patterson's sist-
ers. When tried, Wade Williams was
released by the jury. His plea was
Miss Vernal Patterson, a sister ol
Patterson, committed suicide at a ho-
tel here several months ago.
L00KABAUGH TAKES PRIZE
Watonga Breeder Shows Fine Cattle
at the Fair.
Oklahoma City.—For the first time
In the history of the oklahoma State
Fair, and, it is said, the first time in
the history of all fairs ever held In
the United States, both grand chain
pionships and three out of a possible
five in the Shorthorn classes were
wnn by a single exhibitor, and thai
with a herd of youngsters bred on an
Oklahoma stock farm—the farm ol
H. C. Lookabaugh, Watonga. Anothei
Oklahoma breeder—Lee U. Patterson,
the El Reno veteran retained another
of the finals for the state by lifting
first In the produce or cow number—
an exceptionally choice ribbon—as a
reflection of the highest merits of the
sire, thereby adding another of the
herd and group classes to the credit
of tbe state.
Honors for Western Canada
Come Year After Year.
At the recent Soil Products Exposi-
tion at Peoria, 111., In n keen contest
for the coveted first prize for whont.
Western Cunndn has again carried "ft
nil the honors. Not only has she won
the first, but also the second and third
prizes. These were won by Mr. S. Lnr-
eombe, of Itirtle, Manitoba. In past
years the Province of Saskatchewan
had the distinguished honor of carry-
ing off the Initial prize.
Harvesting and threshing are now
completed In Western Canada, and
while it Is early in the season to give
exact flgufes as to the average yield
per acre of wheat, oats, barley and
flax It Is safe to assume that the for
mer will yield about 20 bushels per
ucre. The price to the farmer will be
nhout $2.00 per bushel, giving him
$40.00 an acre of a return. When It Is
considered that the land upon which
tills wheat Is grown averaged less than
$.10 nn acre, It takes very little flgur-
Ing to arrive at an estimate of tfie
profit there is to the grain grower of
Western Canada. The writer knows
where a fanner purchased 100 acres
of land In the spring of 1010, broke it
up the same yenr, put It In wheat In
1017. His crop was harvested a few-
days ago. It yielded 4.800 bushels and
he sold It at $2.05 per bushel, giving
hlin $0,840. The land cost him $4,800,
breaking, seeding, seed, cutting and
threshing, $1,020. His profit wns
$.'t.120 after paying for Ills land and
Ills costs of Improving. He has now
$1,120 to commence another season
with a "paid for In full" Improved
Never has farming offered such prof-
itable returns for labor ns at present
and nowhere is the large profit equal
to that of the low priced, high yielding
lands of Western Canada.
There has been a big rush during
the past few weeks of renters and
owners of high priced lands in many
parts of the United States to investi-
gate these 100% profit reports. No
better season of the year could be
selected by anyone desiring to better
their condition and wishing to give
Western Canada the "once over."
Threshing is now completed and the
grain being marketed. The weather Is
fine and will be pleasant for a couple
of months and a visit now to person-
ally Investigate the conditions will be
convincing and profitable. Willie old
home ties and family associations are
one of the first considerations In the
mind of the reader, who feels that
the old five or ten per cent return is
sufficient, it behooves the modern and
progressive farmer always to be on
the alert to grasp the opportunities of
the hour. Land In Western Canada
that Is annually producing a gross re-
turn of from $40.00 to $80,00 per acre
Is purchasable at from $15 to $30 pel-
acre. It can be seen at 11 glance flint
such values cannot help but Increase
as they have done In the older agricul-
tural districts of the United States.
The new settler will find himself sur-
rounded by same contented and pros-
perous neighbors. The expense of mak-
ing one visit to look into Western Can-
ada's opportunities is small—a special
reduced rate Is available and you owe
yourself a holiday and a trip may do
you good. You owe your dependepts n
right to better your condition and
Western Canada offers that opportu-
Even though a man stops growing
while young, he may grow old.
