Here is a story that is almost j

I lieved it ourself had we not seen
I the stuff and had supreme con-
j lidence in the doctors who tell j
j the story.
Some three years ago a negro
named Malichi Martin was com-
j mitted to the asylum from Le-
\ Flore county. From the time he
was committed his physical con-
jdition puzzled the physicians, as
[ they could not decide what was 1
i the matter with him, and agreed
(that when'he died a post-mortem
| was the only way to find out. He
| was some thirty-five years of
! age, and lingered along until last
! Thursday, when he died. That
evening the post-mortem was
j held at the undertaking parlors
of I. M. Jackson, by Drs. Day
i and Steen, oi the Sanitarium,
and the following articles found
in his stomach:
Four 20-penny nails.
Ten 16-penny nails
Three 10-penny nails
Fifteen eight-penny nails
Six 3-penny or shingle nails
One long screw
One 6-penny nail.
Four Lion tobacco tags.
Two Star tobacco tags
Twelve 1-inch washers.
Fifty buttons of all kinds
Twenty small pieces tin
One bedspring about three
inches long with hook on each
One small railroad spike
One 2-inch long screw
One part of a butcher knife
about two inches long where
iron has been covered with a

Thirty pieces of glass ranging

Why is a Heating Stove?
That's an easy one for you. Got to have it in winter
for comfort—for health. Got to have it to do a full days work
Correct. And then why should you not cool the rooms
of your house in summer as well as heat them in winter.
In fact, don't you feel less like working in summer than
Don't the heat seem to sap all your energy and leave you
nothing to go on? Isn't there more sickness in summer-
more of that Vital kind that takes children, women and men
and calls the undertaker to your home.
In this country, with its seven months of summer, an
Electric Fan is a more important part of you home or office
equipment than a stove.
The cost is less, and against this cost you must charge
the loss of comfort,—the loss of temper,—the loss of work
and the loss of returns therefrom,—the loss of health and the
loss of energy to fight sickness when it comes---the increased
Doctor Bills and the hire of the Undertaker.
An Electric Fan is more essential for you in summer
than a stove in winter. Just as an insurance proposition alone
it would be the biggest investment you could make.
Better call us up and order one before that next hot wave.

insane are growing in numbers
everywhere. A telegram from
New York says:
- New York, June 19.—Dr. A.
J. Rasanoff, of King's Park Hos-
pital for the Insane, in a paper
read today at the second annual
conference of the Eugenics Re-
search Association at Columbia
University asserted that the
number of insane persons in the
institutions of the United States
has nearly trebled during the
last forty years.
The average in 100,000, accord-
ing to Dr. Rasanoff's figures, has
increased from 86.5 to 232. The
most fortunate State, the phy-
sician said was Oklahoma, in
which only 67 per 100,000 of the
total population are in the in-
Massachusetts, he asserted, is
in the worst condition, having
413.4 per 100,000 of its total
population either insane or semi-
insane. The Eugenics Research
Association was formed last
year for the purpose of combat-
ing such conditions.
