Some people may imagine that the
booths at El Reno and Lawton are
the only places in Oklahoma where
men are standing in line and waiting
for their turn: but such is not the
case. The line of applicants for jobs
in the new counties in front of the
governor's office at Guthrie is about
as long and turbulent as any line
in front of a booth and it may yet
be necesary for the governor to call
out the National Guards to protect
him from complete collapse by reas-
on of exhaustion in listening to the
claims of the applicants, who mis-
trust that governor might possible
not have read over their long and ex-
haustive list of endorsements. At
any rate they want to see him look
pver them in their presence.
If young ladies think sores, pimples
and red noses look well with a bridal

a Louisiana alligator the chills and it
would be just about as hard to secure
there, in our opinion, as near where
present well is located. A few sand
points won't get the water at the
river and because one little well j
thirty feet deep don't furnish enough
water to supply the town it is no rea-
son why a few such wells dug a little ,
deeper would not do it. Today Nor- j
man has the best water of any town
in the Territory and we believe with
proper reservoirs dug an abundance
of it can be secured in near vicinity
of present well. We believe if the
city council would cease to listen so
much to water wizzards and go to
work and have a well put down a
short distance south of the present
well about forty feet deep and fifty
or sixty feet in diamater they will
have water to drowned ducks in, even
in a dry time. The present city well
was never large enough or deep en-
ough to supply water for this city.
With a pump hitched onto a little
30x30 well pumping six gallons to the
stroke water would have to run into
the well like a mill-race to keep the
engine at work all day.
I Since writing the above, we learn
I that the city dads have commenced
' digging a big reservoir about 800
yards south of the present well with
I paesent indications that they will se-
| cure an abundance of water.

' period of four weeks without a drop

fast and it will take a good wet spell I

STRIKES A RICH FIND.
"I was troubled for several years i
with chronic indigestion and nervous)
debility' writes F. G. Green of Lancas- ,
ter. N H., "No remedy helped me un-
til I began using Electric Bitters,
which did me more good than all the
medicine I ever used. They have also
kept my wife in excellent health for
years. She says Electric Bitters are
just splendid for female trouble.-; that
they are a grand tonic and invigorator
for weak, run down women. No other
medicine can take its place in our
family." Try them. Only oOe. Satis-
I faction guaranteed by Fred Reed.
A WORTHY SUCCESSOR.
"Something New Under the Sun."
All Doctors have tried to cure CAT-
ARRH by the use of powders, acid
gases, inhalers and drugs in paste
forip. Their powders dry up the mu-
cous membranes causing them to crack
open and bleed. The powerful acidB
used in the inhalers have entirely eat-
en away the same membranes that
their makers have aimed to cure, while
pastes and ointments cannot reach the
disease. An old and experienced prac-
titioner who has for many years made
a close study and specialty of the treat-
ment of CATARRH, has at last per-
fected a Treatment which when faith-
fully used, not only relieves at once,
but permanently cures CATARRH, by
removing the cause, stopping the dis-
charges, and curing all inflammation.
It is the only remedy known to science
that actually reaches the afflicted

TEED CATARRH CUKE" and is sold
