It used to be considered that only urinary
and bladder troubles we re to be traced to tne.
kidneys, but now mode ni science proves that
nearly all diseases have their beginning in
the disorder of these most important organs.
The kidneys filter a nd purify the .blood

Therefore when your kidneys are weak, or
out of order, you can u nderstand how quickly
your entire body is affected, and how every or-
gan seems to fail t o do its duty.
If you are sick or t eel badly begin taking

We will lease the east side of this room and the front part <

We have purchased and will open for your Inspection the finest line

This line will consist of goods from the high grade manufacturers,

In this undertaking we shall strive to make more beautiful th*

ue principal object in visiting the city
was to complete the arrangement so
that the Oklahoma commission would
know definitely Just what to expect.
Prof. Gould writes that he now has
the matter straightened out to his en-
tire satisfaction. Ills letter is in part
"We have one of the most desirable
skes In the mines and metallic bulld-
iffg. If I had had the entire choosing
of the location I do not know that I |
could have done better. The amount
of space at our disposal is 38x26 feet,
or practically 1,000 square feet. That
la nearly twice as much as is given
to any other territory and more than
many states have, Iowa, Nebraska.
North Dakota. Louisiana and other
states, for Instance, having much less
space than we have.
"T'le location of the Oklahoma ex-
hibit will be between Indian Terri-
tory and Kansas, fronting on one of
the -ialn aisles of the mines build.
Ing. In talking with Director Holmes
he endorsed our plan for making a
good exhibit of gypsum. Said that
Kansas, was the only other state that
would show gypsum. Well, I happen
to know that could lose all the gyp-
sum In the state ot Kansas among one
of our gyp« im ledges, so that It would
take a chait and compass to find it.
"I'm coming back and roll up my
sleeves and pitch In. Oklahoma must
be In It when It comes to a mineral
exhibit We already have a reputa-
tion up hen* because of the fact that
our Oklahoma building was the first
one to be completed. It's *a beauty,
too, and about the most conveniently
located of any on the grounds. None
of the other state buildngs are done;
many of them not even started. The
space for th* Colorado building, for
instance, has never been touched.
The fair is to be a tremendously big
thing. A dozen or more buildings,
each as large as half a dozen city
blocks, besides hundreds of smaller
buildings. The best thing about it is
that Oklahoma will be ihere and the
rest of the world will know that she's
