Hail stones a.s large as a saucer, is the

That beats "hail stones as large as hen
Still there are sometimes hailstones,

CHAMBERLAINS STOMACH AND
LIVER TABLETS BETTER
THAN A DOCTORS
Mr. J. W. Turner, of Truhart, Va.,
says that Chamberlain's Stomach and
Liver Tablets have done him more good
than anything he could get from the
doctor. If any physician in this country
vas able to compouu^ a medicine that
would produce such gratifying results in
cases of stomach troubles, biliousness
or constipation, his whole time would be
used in preparing this one medicine.

A teacher in the institute tells t! at
be ^ave the following sentence to i ne
of her small boys to punctuate: "By the
cat's jumping over the table, the pic
was overturned." He hastily answored,
"I'd make a dash after tho pie." Thete
was another teacher who gave a similar
* litence for punctuation that contained
the word girl. It was given to a sixteen
year old lad who immediately said, "I'd
make a dash after the girl."
Goods made in Oklahoma are best and
cheapest, for instance you used to get 6
bars of laundry .soap for 2oc. Now you
get 7 bara if you buy Pow Wow.
