"I haled cooking because whatever
J ate gave me Hour stomach and a
bloated feeling 1 drank hot water
and olive oil by the gallon. Nothing
helped me until I tried simple buck-
thorn bark, glycerine, etc., as mixed

ENTIRE bowel tract completely Ad-
ler-i-ka relieves any cane Hour stom-
ach, gas or constipation and prevents
appendicitis. The instant action is
surprising.—Sherman and Sherman.

The livestock clubs are pig fatten-
ing, pig breeding, calf dairy, calf

to take up this matter with yoi for at
this time we have a movement en foot
that will allow boys who do not pos-
sess the money to pay for their stock
to secure it from men of the county

J The Jackson poultry law of the
State of Oklahoma says tha t there
must be held in each school house in
the state a poultry show in the month
of November and an egg show in the
month of January. The law further
statf-i- that the school districts shall
levy a tax for the payment of premi-
um, for these shows, and if tha school
directors do not the county commis-
sioners will add this Item to tho levy.
Now we expect to have these shows

For County Clerk
In this issue of the Leader you will
find the announcement of Earnest B.
Nelms for the Democratic nomination
for county clerk, subject to the action
of the primary, August 6th.
Mr. Nelms Is now serving his first
term as county clerk, and has proven
an efficient and accommodating offi-
cial, always on the job and taking care
of the duties of the office in h very
satisfactory manner. He is a Cleve-
land county boy who has always shown
himself loyal and true to his ideals
and anxious to give best of service
in every position in which he has been
placed, and counts as his friends ev-
ery one who knows him, being cour-
teous, honest and reliable.
It is always the rule to give an ef-
ficient 'and honest official n second
term, and In this case It is especially
ruleable, for no man can truthfully
say aught against his administration
of the affairs of the office nor of his
fairness, sobriety and honor. ft is
unreasonable to suppose that there will
be any opposition to Mr. Helm's re-
nomination, and we do not believe the
opposing parties will make a nomina-
tion against him. Certainly it w.'ll be
foolshness on their part to do so.
Uncle Sam wants us to raise lots of grain and hogs
this year, and John Deere implements and Hog Joys will help
you do it.
He wants us to raise lots of chickens and the Safety
Hatch Incabator will help you do it.
He wants us to make iois of cream and butter and
the Primrose Seperator will help you do it.
He wants us to raise lots of garden stuff and we
have the Garden Wire and Tools to help you do it.
He wants us to help win the war and weare goingto

PrartBi! answering of the telephone is a big'factor.
If a clojrk is asked to "get Mr. Jones of Smith &
Co. fljof.the telephone" it's only fair to Jones that
he ^sc be kept waiting when he answers. More-
over, when a call comes from him, he properly ax-

year members who must each set three
sittings of purebred eggs, raise at

cockerel to be carried over for the sec-

At this time there are no clubs in
Norman and Lexington. I shDuld be
glad to have these two towns organize
clubs as soon as possible, for your
