NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS.
This issue of paper completes its
fifth volume. Five years ago when
its first number made its appearance
it was thought by many to be a ten-
der plant that would cease to bloom
as soon as the fall election was over;
but time has shown that the plant
was not of an ephemeral nature and
from the day it was launched to
present time it has continued to
grow and spread its branches till it
overshadows every newspaper plant
in the county and is the best equip-
ped Reform newspaper plant in the
We believe that the paper has
proven to be of some benefit to the
city of Norman and Cleveland coun-
ty; though we are frank to admit
that up to date it has failed to prove
dividend-paying stock to proprie-
tors. The financial condition of the
people of this county together with
the partial crop failures for the past
five years have made it difficult for
us to realize much from our sub-
scription list; and job work, adver-
tising and bank account have been
the financial mainstays of plant for
past five years. With the good
crops of this year we trust that our
delinquent subscribers will see to it
that their back dues are paid up
this fall, and that they will trust us
with a year's subscription in ad-
vance as we have trusted them for
It is our desire to at least double
our subscription list in this county
this fall, and if friends of paper will
lend a helping hand we will see the
fruition of our desire before Christ-
mas. As an inducement for you to
assist us get up a club of four new
yearly subscribers and send us $4
and we will send you paper for one
Thanking many friends of paper
who have stood by it so loyally in
the past and hoping to merit a con-
tinuance of their support in future,
Allan & Rixsf..

The Mexican dollar though it
contains more silver than the Unit
ed States issue, is only worth forty
seven cents. The American while
dollar protected as it is by gold is
worth 100 cents and is acceptable to
The above is a fair sample of the
average intelligence of the editors
of the weekly goldbug press, as re-
gards monetary affairs. The Mexi-
can dollar is good for its face, there,
just as our silver dollar is worth its
face in this country. The assertion
that the U. S. silver dollar is pro-
tected by gold is a fallacy that has
been exploded so often by as emi-
nent authorities as U. S. treasurers,
that no one can be longer caught by
The Silver Democrats and Gold
Democrats are ripping each other
up the back in great shape and the
Silver Republicans are ready to
step out of the Republican ranks
and join a reform party that is not
labeled "Democratic." The Silver
Republicans won't march under the
Democratic banner, but they are
not averse to taking up their march
under the Peoples party colors. Now
is the time for the Peoples party to
get down to its knitting and saw
wood. The National Democrats
will force the Bryan Democrats to
form a new alliance outside of the
Democratic party. In 1900 those
who earnestly desire to reclaim the
government from the clutches of
the money power will join hands
and all the politicians in America
will be powerless to prevent the un-
ion. Old party names will have lost
their charm. The union will be
upon the principles and demands
of the Peoples party and we believe
under same name.

Mr. Lincoln Nelson, of Marshfield, Mo.,
writes: "For tiz years I have been •
sufferer from a scrofulous affection of
the glands of my neck, and all effort!
of physicians in Washington, D. C.,
Springfield, 111., ar.d St. Louis failed tc
reduce the enlargement. After six
months' constant treatment here, my
physician urged me to submit to a re-I
moral of the gland. At this critical mo-
ment a friend recommended S.S.S., j
and laying aside a deep-rooted preju-
dice against all patent medicines, I be-
gan its use. Before I bad used one bot-
tle the enlargement began to disappear,
and now it is entirely gone, though I am
not through with my second bottle yet.

Aug. J. Bogel, the leading druggist
of Shreveport, La., says: "Dr. King's
New Discovery is the only thing that
cures ray cough, and it is the best sel-
ler I have." J. F.Campbell, merchant
of SafTord, Ariz., writes: "Dr. King'6
New Discovery is all that is claimed for
it; it never fails, and is a sure cure for
Consumption, CoughsandColds. Ican-
not say enough for its merits." Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consumption,
Coughs and Colds is not an experiment.
It has been tried for a quarter of a cen-
tury, and to-day stands at the head. It
never disappoints. Free trial bottles at
