Recommends Pe-ru-na For Catarrh.
Hon. M. H. McCord.
Hon. Myron H. McCord, Ex-Governoi
of New Mexico, in a letter to Dr. Hart-
man, from Washington, D. C., says:
Dear Sir—At the suggestion of a friend
I was ud vised to use Pe-ru-na for catarrh,
and after using one bottle I began to
feel better in every way. It helped me
in many respects. I was troubled with
colds, coughs, sore throat, etc., but as
soon as I had taken your medicine I
began to improve and soon got well. I
take pleasure in recommending your
great remedy to all who are afflicted
with catarrh.—M. II. McCord.
The spring presents a much more
favorable opportunity for the perma-
nent cure of chronic catarrh, especially
old, stubborn cases. Now is the time to
begin treatment. Insist upon having
Pe-rn-na. There are no successful sub-
stitutes for this remedy. Send to Dr.
Hartman, Columbus, Ohio, for a free ca-

for authority to organize the First
National bank of Enid, O. T., with a
capital of $25,000.
The newspaper people in attend-
ance at the Wichita banquet were
made special guests with seats on
the stage. Enid was represented by
Percy Glaze and the Wave man. We
sat within eight feet of Col. Bryan,
hence, heard every word the great
orator uttered distinctly. Atter the
banquet we had the pleasure of ex-
changing a few words with the great
"If a fellow feels his 'side burn'
what does it denote'?'' Why, he's
simply put his hand to one side of his
face; any man has a right to linger his
whiskers; some men wear side-burns
for style, others because they lacl*
the piice of a shave; in the last
named case it probably denotes that
he wants them off; but the barbers
are all onto him. P. S.—For further
particulars consult Hop-Lee.
The city council placed W. E.
White on the police force, last Fri-
day night. The Wave believes that
White will make a good officer. He
is a very cool headed man with good
judgment and will probably be able
to handle law breakers without half
killing one occasionally.
The fight for the republican nomi-
nation for county attorney is get-
heated between James, Banks and
Ferguson. BanKs has the advantage
as deacon of the church, besides he
has absolute coiitrol of the third
ward and Washington township.
Mr. John Jenaoii is over from his
Indian Agency. He came over to
help Harry out for nelping him when
he was out and wanted in. Thio is a
great country for swapping 'fluence.
Col. Billy Boardnian, who lives in
the Skelleton valley, took his entire
wheat crop into the house this morn-
ing to keep it from getting rusty.
Too much rain.
The new school board will organize
next Monday a week, May 7th. It is
believed that Mr. J. P. Marshall will
be elected president and Mr.'Corbe
O. J. Fleming, W, O. Cromwell,
Sheriff Chas. Porter, Percy Glaze
and J. L. Isenberg attended the Sun

night before last.
Owing to the recent heavy rain
which have made bad roads, the
usual Saturday crowd was not in
His Visit to Wichita Tuesday, April
24 Mo>ster Banquet.
As well advertised throughout the
country, Col. W. J. Bryan arrived in
Wichita, Tuesday morning, last, from
Texas, coming in over the Santa Fe
road. About three thousand people
congregated around the depot to
catch a glimpse of the great com.
moner, yet it was astonishing how
few could reco nize him in that argc.
crowd, and as the reception commit-
tee missed the train he stepped from
the Pullman car with other passen-
gers and proceeded to his hotel carry-
ing a valise. He went through the
crowd unrecognized by hundreds.
He passed right by where the Wave
man stood and, of course, we grabbed
him by the hand and received one of
those broad scotch irish smiles, char-
acteristic of Bryan.
After reaching Hotel Carry he ap-
peared on the steps of that hostelry
for a moment and announced to the
6,000 people before him that he would
talk to them at the corner of Market
and First streets at 3:30 p, m. Very
few were admitted to his room out-
side of the reception com mittee. A
monster crowd, probably 10,000 peo-
ple, faced the speaker's stand when
Bryan appeared about 4 p. in. The
cheering was almost deafening and
lasted at least thirty seconds. At
least half the audience were farmers
and Mr. Bryan directed his remarks
to their interests particularly show,
ing how they were robbed through
the low prices of their products and
the high price of products of the
various gigantic American trusts.
The applause given the distinguished
speaker came often and in an earnest
manner. Mr. Bryan spoke for one
hour, but during the speech he placed
his hat, a common light colored
s'ouch, on his head to protect his
bald spot from the scorching rays cf
the sun. Atter the meeting adjourned
there was a great rush of the farmers
to shake hisjhand and tears stood
in the eyes of many of them.
The Sun Flower League banquet
was spread in the Auditorium which
was opened up about 8:30 p. m., but
it was 9:30 before the feasting began
Seven hundred and seventy tickets
had been sold and seven hundred and
thirty-four plates were occupied.
The banquet consisted of three courses
of oysters, cold meats, ice cream,
coffee, wine, pie and cake and was
gotten up rich ard palitable. One
hundred and fifty colored waiters,
dressed in white, waited upon that
vast throng of banqueters, yet it was
nearly midnight before the president
of the Sun Flower League arose and
introduced the Hon. John A. C'osby
of New York, who made ? rousing
fifteen minute speech, wherein he
eulogized Bryan to the skies; among
other thines he said. "Bryan will be
nominated at Kansas City; the New
York delegation will vote for him
and next fall New York will elect the
Bryan electors by a large majority."
Bryan was introduced as the next
President of the United States and
he held his audience spellbound until
2:10 a. m., talking over two hours and
so fast that he could not be detected
drawing his breath. Not a sou' left
the house while that strong voice re-
sounded through the vast hall. In
expressing his sympathy for the
Boers in beautiful sentences the
audience arose and cheered for a
After Bryan came the Hon. Allen
Myers of Ohio, whose lemarks were
well intended but not in good tact
with his western hearer.-. It is
thought that Bryan's specch on this
occasion was one of the best he has
eyer made, some going so far as to
say that it beat the famous speech
that gave him the democratic nom-
ination for president In '96. Its pub-
lication in full would consume the en-
tire space of the four' pages of the
The Wichita Eagle treated Bryan's
visit as well as his speech, very shab-
y. The Beacon report is a simple
synopsis and did not touch on the
real gem sentences of the thrilling
speech. It was 2:20 a. m., when the
banquet was dismissed. The lobbies
of the principal hotels were still
crowded when old Sol peeped over
the eastern horizon Wedntsday morn-
ing, as hundreds didn't go to bed,
many of whom were unable to secure
lodging. The Wave has good reason
to believe that Bryan did much good
A WHOLY HORROR.
A Missing Lunch or Misplaced
From Fridays da^lv.
A bran new Masonic Lodge was in-
stituted at Garber last night. The
following officers and members of the
Enid Lodge instituted the new lodgtfl
goint: to Garber overland yesterday

Weatherly, Geo. Graham, l)r. Kelso,
H. P. Lee, L. M. Bumstead, Mr.

can citizens do the party prepared
themselves with snake bite cure, the
malt treatment, and a bountiful
lunch, to be secure trom starvation

In gathering up the fish bate and
other necessaries, Meibergen & Gods-

final arrangements and bidding good-
bye to their families, that cruel town
guy, Hub Crawford, slipped into the
commissary department, remoyed
the elegant lunch from its hand,
somely upholstered receptical and
placed a pair of Joe Meibergen's
ancient shoes in its place, then care-
fully wrapped up the package and
After the smoke and busy whirl of
Enid had been left to the west about
ten miles Godschalk proposed that
the lunch be opened for a general
feast. Moses Anderson, a direct de-
scendant of Solomon, was delegated
to open the feast box. When Mose
removed the lid from the temporary
sepulchur of Joe Meibergen's shoes
there was weeping, wailing and
gnashing of teeth, and one or two of
the Christian brotherhood swore a
few cuss words.
Eight sons of Solomon's Temple ar-
rived in Garber too late for supper in
a well regulated town, but the vill-

ford ate that confiscated lunch about

Mrs. Mollie Barber, St. James, Mo., writes: "I took
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound during change of
life, and have passed through that
critical period safely. I suffered for
years with falling of the womb and
female weakness. At times could
hardly stand on my feet, also had
leucorrhcea. I tried several good
doctors, but instead of getting better, grew worse all the
time. A friend advised me to try Mrs. Pinkham's Compound.
I did so and after taking six bottles, was cured of both
leucorrhcea and falling of womb. I am now enjoying good
health and feel very grateful for
the good your medicine has
done me. I would recommend

The Republican County Convention
met in the Opera House today at 10:30
a. m. and organized by making Ed
Bourne, of Hackberry township, tem.
poraryj chairman; E. A. Riley, of
Reed township and Wm. Starkworth,
of Olive township, were made secre-
taries. After the usual committees
were appointed the Malay expansion-
ist adjourned to take a drink and eat
a little. The Wave didn't furnish a
reporter this afternoon, hut we un-
derstood that Conk told Harry that
Ned Sisson said that Banks said that
Ferguson told him that Col. James
said that Sanford intimated that
Shoemaker thought that Harry Hor-
ner would be foreman of the next
grand jury and that Harry Thompson
could get anything he wanted, owing
to the fact that the boys had to see
Harry in going away from home or
walk" As the republican party is a
machine, of course the biggest trick
ster of the gang was honored today
and we haven't a report trom the
convection to prove it, but we will
bet we are right in the dark.
Many of the present members of
the Democratic County Central Com-
mittee have expressed themselves to
the Wave to the effect that in their
mind the resolution offered at the
late meeting of the committee, look-
ing to the election of a new comm.t.
tee at the primaries of May 4th was
a slur, or insult, to the present com-
mittee and the Wave is inclined to
that conclusion. The Central Com-
mittee has always, very properly,
been selected at the primaries pro-
ceeding the regular county Conven-
tion for the nomination of candidates
tor county otlicc, or by said conven.
tion through the selection of the var
It is quite evident that the parties
who desired the passage of such a
resolution cannot control the com
mittee to their satisfaction, which is
strictly a personal matter, not con
genial with the harmony of the party
organization of this county. Proba
bly the members of the committee
do not consult and advise with sev
eral parties who aim to control the
actions of the party for peculiar, sel
fish and mercenary motives. The
Wave does not see where the present
committee has not acted in good
faith for the best interest of the
party and it does not believe that a
better or more wide awake committee
could possibly be selected, and, of
course, the committee will run until
the regular county convention.
Prom Thursdays daily.
Yesterday morning the sheriff of
Sumner county, Kan., and the mar-
shal, of Caldwell, undertook, at Cald
well to arrest a man who answered
the description of the Wlnlield depot
burglar. He resisted arrest and
threatened the officer and made a
movement as if he was about to pull
a gun when the city marshal shot
him through the body, from the ef-
fects of which he died in thirteen
hours. The man refused to give any
name and nothing was found about
him that would indicate his name.
Among his effects was found the
watch stolen from the Santa Fe sta-
tion agent at Winfield, | who was
killed, also a real good set of burglar
tools. A railroad station was robbed
at Anthony, Kas., Monday n ight and
it is believed that the dead man was
the chap who has been robbing the
stations, post offices ard little banks
in Kansas and Oklahoma during
the last three months.

BRYAN REMEMBERED FLEMING.
Krom the Wichita Eii(?le*
Mr. O. J. Fleming was up from
Enid to see Bryan, Tuesday. He was
one of the first to greet Colonel
Byran after he had reached the
Carey, and the colonel remembered
Mr. Fleming as well as if he had
known him all his life. While at
Enid several years ago Mr. Bryan
was entertained at Mr. I' leming s
home, and at that time Mr. Fleming
told a story which struck Colonel
Bryan so well that he has used it in
his campaign speeches, and told Mr.
Fleming of it Tuesday. Mr. Fleming
is cashier of the Bank of Enid and
vice president of the new Enid,

now being built. He says his section
of the territory is booming and

him on the line, and thinks the line
will be located soon. The graders
will commence work this week and
will start from Lamont in Gran,,

that from Lamont to Enid, is almost
