mock a most patient, forbearing

Cuba's thanksgiving proclama-

Sweet thought. The Dingley

The suggestion of Gov. Leedy, ot
Kansas, to send a car of .lack
Rabbits to Wasnington to relieve

It is said that McKinleys next

It in earnestly desired that

the public schools, will carefully
examine the following synopsis
ami compare the same with his
or her <1 i«triot% that you may acser-
tain the position which yotirschool
occupies in the many schools of

those who have so generously t,s
sisted in placing; the schools of
Cleveland county on their present
plain of progress, that if your
school stands above the average
in (Cveland county that it stands
as peer with those that stand above

It has been said that, "no system
of education is complete that does
not begin in the gutter and end in
the I niversity." No one would de-
ny that the Oklahoma system be
gan properly, but it remains for
those who will, to end properly.

It often happens that the doctor
is out of town when most needed.
The two yearold daugther of J. Y. ;
Schenck, of Caddo, Intl. Terr., was i
threatened with croup. He writes:1
'My wife insisted that I go for the j
doctor at once, but as he was out of ,
town I purchased a bottle of Cham-
berlain's Cough Remedy, which re-
lieved the child immediately". A
bottle of that remedy in the house
will often save the expense of a
doctor's bill, besides the anxiety al-
ways occasioned by serious sick-
ness. When it is given as soon as
the croupy cough appears, it will
prevent the attack. Thousands of
mothers always keep it in their
homes. 25 and 50 cents bottles.
