Salt pork is a famous old-
fashionel remedy for

a civic.' to the
consumptive 50 and 100
years a- j.
i^alt pork is good if a man
can stomach it. The idea
behind it is that fat is the
food the consumptive needs
Scott's Emulsion is the mod-
ern method of feeding fat to
the consumptive. Pork is too
rough for sensitive stomachs.
Scott's Emulsion is the most
refined of fats, especially
prepared for easy digestion.
Feeding him fat in this
way, which is often the only
way, is halt the battle, but
Scott s Emulsion does more
than that. 1 here is some-
thing about the combination
of cod liver oil and hypophos-
phites in Scott's Emulsion
that puts new life into the
weak parts and has a special
action 011 the diseased lungs.

This was done because Mr. Francis
had been informed by Collector Gal
lenkamp that his ship, being a duti
able exhibit in bond, it could not be
taken out of bond at the fair ground
without a bond was filed. As its as
censlon at the fair might result in it
flying without the bounds of the
position site, Mr. Gellenkamp ruled
that an ascension could not be iiennlt

A TENDER TRIBUTE.
Jim Ewing's Friend, Golobie, "Wrote
Him Well Before the World."
"Jimmy" Ewing. one of God's little
noblemen, thai should have revelled
in Pomery and Sac instead of Hoch-
heimer; one of those sons of men
made to be the delight of others and
secret sorrow to themselves; one of
the best minds in the territory, stored
with the choicest humor, pungent wit,
deleclable fancy, gifts of which he
was prodigal as a god; a heart thai
made no distinction twixt friend or
foe; a soul that enshrined him when
most bewildered in (lie dust and grime
of the pathway of life, "decomposed,
faded, vanished," as he would have
put it had ho passed comment upon
his own death, "into that mystery
from which he came."
Jim Ewing; was a court stenograph-
er from the earliest day of Oklahoma,
working among others, for Judge
Henry W. Scott, Judge John Tarsney,
Judge Byard T. Hainer; and such a
stenographer as he was. He knew
more law than half the lawyers, and
as he would put it, "that wasn't
much." His stories were more deli-
cious than the biscuits "your mother
made." And the fancied books he
wrote, like "The Crime of Dehorning
a Hydraulic Ram," and others belong-
ing to the great Rabelasian genius,
that need expurgation before they are
fit food for the adolescent. Ewing
was a marked man. He was a little
man, with the brain of a giant,
mouth too large for his face and eyes
like two blotches of iridescence, whose
refraction made no focus but looked
at the whole world as well as the ob
ject in front at the same time, whose
light, when he smiled, was borrowed
from his soul.
Guthrie, Nov. S.—The banks of Ok
lahoma are at present in a very pros'
perous condition. Territorial Bank
Commissioner Cooper has receive
recent reports from each of the banks
and says with very few exceptions
they passed without criticism and
showed the banks to be in a strong
safe condition. The territorial banks
are required to send in four reports
annually. These the commissioner in
vestigates antl reports hack to the
If nks for correction any irregulari-
ties he may detect. Two of these re-
ports are compiled by him into con-
solidated reports with the national
banks of the terltory. The consolida-
ted reports are not compulsory, |>u(

to give the public the benefit.

Panama wants. They want the money
Put where they and their successors
cannot get hold of It.
Even Panama Is not exempt from
the danger of revolution The first
thing a successful South American re-
volutionist does is to cart the
money In the treasury off to Paris and
then sell as many bonds as possible
to Increase the resources of his lux-
urious exfle la'er. A bank deposit or
negotiable securities could be looted
by a Panama brigand before the
I nited States had time to suppress
his revolution with a landing party.
The little government is takiag pre-
-autions against this. Once more we
hink it must have good advisers.—
Jerry Simpson, during his speer

little compliment which the American
overlooked antl the Blobell refused

was deputy commissioner of pensions

THE YEAST THAT RAISED THE
FIRST GRAND PRIZE.
It will be interesting to all who use
east and to many others as well, to
know that Yeast Foam has been
awarded the First Grand Prize at the
Louis Exposition. This is a
orthy recognition of the yeast that
has practically revolutionized the
breadmaking art in this country. And
it Is true that the bread of today, as
compared with that of ten or fifteen
years ago is not only better made, but
there is more nutriment in it on ac-
count of its*>greater digestibility.
This is due In a measure to modern
methods of grinding wheal, but really
to the general use of a strictly pure
yeast. As the secret of good bread Is
in tile yeast, every housewife who
uses \ east Foam has become a prac-
A postal card sent to the Northwest-
ern Yeast Company, Chicago, will se-
cure I heir little hook "Good Bread;
How to Make It," which should be In
every home in the land. It tells how
to use Yeast Foam and gives many
valuable recipes never before printed.
It is well worth asking for.

The El Reno Democrat Is Not Sold to
Mr. Maxwell and Is Not for Sale.
In order to meet a strong objection
that is belnf urged against Bert Ma
well as a candidate for the legislature
namely, that he has sold out every
thing he has In Yukon and therefore
has no interest In El Ileno or Can
adian county, and will leave the terrl
tory as soon as he strves out his term
ot office if elected, the democrats hav
been busy circulating the report that
Mr. Maxwell has purchased the E
Reno Democrat and will take |k ssc
slon of It immediately afler election
I Ills report is another democratic
falsehood, circulated to deceive the
voter. Mr. Maxwell has not purchased

from the next legislature, when she
urns down one of her own citizens
antl elects a man to represent her
interests, who lias sold out antl Is
reatly to leave the territory without
a moments' delay.
El Reno, If she ever gets anything
or ever amounts to anything, must
learn the important lesson of stand-
ing up for El Reno and El Reno peo-
ple. For our part, we must vote for
Captain Mitts and we advise our
friends to do likewise.

A Thrifty Little Republic.
The pretty little toy republic
Panama is giving an example of thrift
to all nations. It is starting in bus!
ness with an endowment of $10,000,000
which is a very tidy little sum for
population about as big as Minneapo
lis, living on a territory a little large
than South Carolina.
Panama has no debt, not having ac
cepted responsibility for any part of
Colombia s. It has a pretty good reve-
nue, since most of the commerce of
the federal republic passes through it
This commerce and revenue are going
to be enormously increased by the
canal operations. The cost of the t
government is not very great. Pan
ama did not need the $10,000,000 we
gave it any more than it needs five
wheels. The new republic would have
been glad to give us the canal conces
sion for nothing; but our government
did not think it dignified to offer Pan
ama less than we had agreed to give
Panama was in the position of a
sudden and unexpected heir to a for
tune, or of one who had struck oil
or found a gold mine. Everybody ex
pected it to make ducks and drakes
of its money; but the little republic
was better advised. The constitution
provides for the permanent invest-
ment of $6,000,000, only the income
being available for the purposes of
government. The rest, we believe, is
going to be spent ob public works
with especial regard to sanitation.
The form of investment chosen is
curious Instead of depositing the
money in banks, where it might be
drawn out, or purchasing gilt-edged
securities, which might be sold in case
of need, the whole sum is being lent
on New York real estate. Of course
this is a good investment. The only
difficulty is that it cannot be realized
upon promptly, most of the mortgages
running from three to five years This
is exactly what the government of

A Good Kind of Discontent.
1 here are two kinds of discontent
in this world, the discontent that
works and the discontent that wrings
its hands The first gets what it
wants, and the second loses what It
has. There's no cure for the first
hut success, and there's no cure at all
for the second, especially if a woman
has it, for she doesn't know what she
wants, and so you can't give it to her.
