Letters belong to the person to

MUSKOGEE MAY QUARANTINE
If Necessary, Strigent Measures Will
be Taken Against Yellow Fever
MUSKOGEE: Mayor P. B. Fite
has called upon the council to take
some action relative to protecling the
town from yellow fever. While it is
not known whether he will demand
that a quarantine be declared against
New Orleans, he will order the city
to take all precautionary measures to
prevent the disease coming in, and if,
in his opinion, the dinger increases,
a quarantine will be declared. The
mayor calls attention to the fact that
yellow fever has been known this far
north, and that twenty years ago
there were cases of yellow fever at
Fort Gibson, when that town was a

letter from the brigadier general com-

Oklahoma City, advising that favor-
able indorsement has been forwarded
Col How-e at Fort Sill relating to the
artillery maneuvers for August 5 and
the county fair. The 5th is the fourth
anniversary of the opening of the
new country. Col. Howe assured the
committee that ne would gladly as-

sures some fine artillery drills on the
ground that day.
The commanding officer at the fort
tendered his services with the cavalry
so the people will have a treat worth
coming a long distance to see: Of-

kindly interest in Lawton and the
new ones are no exception.

The immediate causes of headache*
vary, but most of them come from poor
or poisoned blood. In ana-uiia the blood
is scanty or thin ; tbo nerves uro imper-
fectly nourished and puiu is the way in
which they express their weakness. In
colds the blood absorbs poison from tho
mucous surfaces, and the poison irritates
tho nerves and produces puiu. In rheu-
matism, malaria and the grip, tho poison
in tho blood produces like discomfort. In
indigestion tho gases from tho impure
matter kept in tho system affect tho
bio oil in the same way.
The ordinary headache-cures nt best
(jive only temporary relief. They dendeu
the pain but do not drive the poison out
of the blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
ou the contrary thoroughly renew tho
blood and the paiu disappears perma-
nently. Women in particular have found
these pills an unfailing relief iu head-
aches caused by anosmia.
Miss Stella Blocker recently said: "Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills did mo a great deal
of good. I had headacho nearly all tho
time. After I had taken three boxes of
these pills I became entirely well."
'How long had you suffered?" she
'_For several years. I can't tell tho
exact date when my illness began for it

'Did you liavo any other ailments?"
' I was very weak and sometimes I had
fever. My liver and kidneys were af-
fected as well as my head."
' How did you conio to take tho rem-
edy that cured you?"
' I saw iu a southern newspaper a
statement of some person who was cured
of a like trouble by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. My physician hadn't douo me any
good, so I bought a box of these pills.
After I had taken one box I felt so much

Cherokee Politicians Resent Refusal
of Chief Rooers
1'RYOR CREEK: The refusal ot
W. C. Rogers, chief of the Cherokee
nation, to call an election for mem-
bers of the national council, is being
resented by many of the Cherokee
citizens, especially the fullblcol ele-
ment. In nearly every dls rlct con-
ventions have been held and candi-
dates nominated. These conventions
are composed of leading men o:' both
the political parties of the nation, and
the leaders declare that an election
will be held. The treaty of 1902
provides that the Cherokee govern-
ment shall continue until March 4,
190C, and under the Cherokee consti-
tution and laws a council should bs
elected in August.
After the election the leadf rs of the
movement will appeal to the Ctilted
States aulhoritles for recognition.

Every housekeeDer should know
that if they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch for laundry use they
will save not only time, because it
never sticks to the iron, but because
each package contains 16 oz.—one full
pound—while all other Cold Water
Starches ato put up in %-pound pack-
ages, and the price is the same, 10
cunts. Then again because Defiance
Starch is free from all injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you
a 12-oz. package it is because he has
a stock on hand which he wisher to
dispose of before he puts in Defiance.
He knows that Defiance Starch has
printed on every package in large let-
ters and figures "16 ots." Demand De-
fiance and sav3 much time and money

missioner to the five civilized tribes,
has sent out notices that a land of-
fice will be opened in tho Seminole
nation, at Wewoka, on September 4.
The principal business of the land of-

babies who were admitted by act of
congress last winter. The children
have been enrolled and the rolls have

Why Russian Soldiers Sing.
It has been pointed out to me by an
enlightened critic that I must be mis-
taken in describing the lot of the Rus-
sian soldier as an unhappy one. "Rus-
sian regiments always sing on tho
march," he explains, and therefore, of
course, the men must be happy.
He is perfectly right about the sing-
ing. Russian soldiers are always sing-
ing; they sing on the march, they sing
in the train, they sing while tljey aro
eating their black bread and kapusta
(sour cabbage), they Blng in the khar-
chevna (publio house). I have also_
seen a gang of over 400 prisoners in
chains on their way to Siberia, and
they, too, sang as they marched to the
station and afterward In the train. I
suppose, therefore, that they must
have been quite happy and contented.
An American humorist has told us
that a certain amount of fleas is good
for a dog; he passes the djjy In
scratching himself, and so forgets to
brood over the misery of being a dog.
Ask the Russian soldier why he is al-
ways singing and he will give you
much the same reason. Ho passes the
day In singing and so forgets to
brood over the misery of being a sol

Coffee Acts the Jonah and Will Com*
A clergyman who pursues his noble
I calling in a country parish in Iowa,
tells of his coffee experience:
"My wife and I used coffee regular-
ly for breakfast, frequently for dinner
and occasionally for supper—always
the very best quality—package coffee
never could find a place on our table
"In the spring of 1896 my wife was
! taken with violent vomiting which we
had great difficulty iu stopping.
"It seemed to come from coffee
drinking but wo could not decide.
"In tho following July, however,
she was attacked a second time by
the vomiting. I was away from home
filling an appointment, at the time,
and on my return I found her very
low; she had literally vomited herself
almost to death, and it took some daya
to quiet the trouble and restore her
"I had also experienced the same
trouble, but not so violently, and had
relieved It, each time, by a resort to
"But my wife's second attack satis-
fied me that tho use of coffee was at
the bottom of our troubles, and so we
stopped It forthwith and took on
Postum Food Coffee. The old symp-
toms of disease disappeared and dur-
ing the 9 years that we have been
using Postum instead of coffee we
have never had a recurrence of the
vomiting. We never weary of Postum,
to which we know we owe our good
health. This Is a simple statement
of facts." Name given by Postum
