Sun's Eclipse Terrifies Superstitious
The eclipse of the sun today
drew crowds of fantastically
dressed peasants to the camps of
the astronomers who had gathered
here to take observations. Ca-
mille Flanimarion, the French-
man, who worked all ni'ht, as-
sisted by Madam Flammarion, as
did Dr. John Miller, Prof. William
Begshall, and their assistants
from Indiana University. The
astronomers found a cloudless
skv this morning.
As totality approached and the
shadowof night swept on, the
scene became weird. Children
cried terrifiedly and the women
screamed. Some became ill. The
men shouted and sang to keep up
their courage. A cold wave swept
over the land, causing the hatless
peasants to shiver. Tlammarion |
and others worked by lighted
lanterns. The thermometer fell
rapidly and the two minutes of
totality seemed like hours. When
the sun reappeared smiles replaced
tears in the village. bowls had
roosted and the eocks gave shrill
welcome to the returning sun.
Flammarion said of the eclipse:
"The clouds prevented a per-
fect observation, but it was ac-
curate despite them. The de-
sign of the corona was not so

The Colonel's Waterloo
Colonel John M. Fuller, of H ney
Crove, Texas, nearly met his Waterloo
from Liver and Kidney trouble. In a
recent letter, he says: "I was nearly
dead of these complaints' and, although
I tried my family doctor' he did me no
good: so I got me a 50c bottle of your
great Electric Bitters, which cured me.
1 consider them the best medicine on
earth, and thank God who gave you i
the knowledge to make them." Sold'
and guaranteed to cure, Billiousness,
and Kidney Disease, by all druggists
at 50c a bottle.

beautiful as that of 1900, but the
contrast was greater. The sky
was black then while today it was
gray. I found the corona deci-
dely circular, typifying maximum
solar activity. In 1900 the co-
rona was oblong, showing mini
mum activity. Today I saw
flames protruding redly to a
height of 50,000 kilometers (about
30,000 miles). Blazing hydrogen
gas; they protruded from the side.
In 1900 I saw a double corona,
but it did not flame. The irregu-
larities of heat and cold were
due this year to solar activity.
Owing to the clouds today I
could only see Venus, which was
very brilliant. Mercury was in-
visible, making the discovery of
intermercurial planents which
might explain Mercury's frequent
disturbances impossible. Today's
phenomenon was very beautiful,
red flames reddening the corona
greater by contrast. The change
of color in the sky from deepj
blue in the west, to pale olue in \
the east, and back again as the
moon passed was amazingly beau-
tiful. The awestruck peasants
removed their hats. I am in-
formed the water on the hillside
assumed the tint of liquid silver."
Asylum Accused by an
Since the letters were received
by Governor Ferguson regarding
the alleged mistreatment of Jas.
Brownlee, an inmate of the Nor-;
man sanitarium, considerable in-
terest has been manifested con i
cerning who the man was who,
made the charges. The letteis
were signed U. W. Munger, and
were sent to Chandler people who
sent them to the governor.
The matter in all probability
will undergo a thorough investi-
Regarding the identity of the
signer of the charges, the El Rem\
Democrat in a recent issue prints
the two following items:
El Reno's own Ulysses W.
Unger has again sprung into
prominence. Several weeks ago
Unger was adjudged insane. He
went to the hospital vowing that
he was saner than the board
which said that he was crazy. A
few-days ago a lady friend ap-
peared upon the scene at Norman
and in an hour's time she had se-
cured Unger's release under a
writ of habeas corpus. Unger and
the lady then got married, and j
now Unger has taken upon him
self the task of showing the world
that the sanitarium is a holy ter-
ror of a place, and needs a lot of
It will be remembered that the
first Mrs. Unger secured a di-
vorce from Unger here last winter.
C. W. Unger h is employed an
attorney to bring suit for damages
against Canadian county. He
claims that the crazyite board of
this county adjudged him insane
and sen him to the asylum, when
his mind was clearer than the
water with which El Rano is sup-
plied. He thinks his feelings
were damaged about $5,000 worth.

fawnee Bill's Wild West and
Far East Exhibition, which is
wending its way 111 this direction
cannot be properly classed with
what is termed a "show" in the
acceptation of that term. It is a
great object lesson, a remarkable
instructor, a sort of restoration of
the most striking features of the
wild western life of America and
of pioneer incidents, that men,
women and children may see, rea-
lize, understand and forever re-
member what the western pion-
eers met, encountered and over-
came. It is a living picture of
early frontier history brought to
our doors by the men and types
who helped to make that histoiv.
Besides the display of Indian life
manners, people and customs,
there are the cowboys and vaque-
10s of old Mexico, and by way
of contrast and as entirely new
features will be introduced Chi-
nese and Japanese cavalry, Singa
lese mounted upon suberb camels
and other racial representatives
of the Far East.

This wheat will test 60 pounds

We wish you would call at the

The Farmers and the Trusts
Of all the producers the farm-
ers are hit the . hardest by the
trusts They catch him coming
and going. And the trust lives
and grows because of railroad re-
bates, and the "protective tariff,"
and national bank control of our
money system. Evidently the
remedy is to cut off these special
tavors which build up and per-
petuate the trusts.
Tom Watson's Magsz'ne
"the magazine" with a purpose
back of, was established to teach
the best way of abolishing
these special privileges, and,
hence, rendering the trusts pow-
erless to rob the public. It is a
big monthly magazine of 128

torials, special articles, a serial
story, noveletts, short stories and

farmer is interested in knowing
ehe best way to cure the trust
evil and how to bring it about.
