The Cause of Consumption Often a Com-
Nine cases of consumption out of ten
occur in this way:
A person catches cold. The cold Is not
properlv cured, and they quickly catch
another cold. This cold is dilly-dallied
with by no treatment, or sonic treut-
m.-nt that Is ineffectual and the cold
Then they catch another cold and
begin to cough. Then they take cough
syrups but they do no good.
By and by they got tired of tnklng
medicine and give up in despair. Their
cold continues; and their cough grows
worse. Then they apply , to a doctor and
only to find'that thoy are In the first
stages of consumption.
At any time during the prog-ess of
the catarrh, from the first onset of the
cold to Its final settlement tn the lungs.
Peruna can be relied upon to check the
progress of the catarrh. Sometimes
after a diagnosis of consumption hits
been made by competent physicians
Peruna has permanently cured. We
have testimonials from many people
who have been given up to die of con-
sumption. who cialm to have been cured
We do not recoihmend Peruna as a
consumption cure, but we do claim that
It will prevent consumption If taken
before the disease Is thoroughly estab-
lished. It Is only the cases of incipient
consumption that we feel confident that
Peruna will cure.

A cold is the beginning of catarrh. It
ay cause catarrh of any of the Internal
organs—the head, throat, lungs and
stomach. A remedy that will cure a
cold, then, would cure all these different
effects of cold. Peruna is such a remedy.
We have letters from all over the United

Prospectors Hope to Find Oil or
Gas Below Four-Foot Coal
Vein-Coal Is Similar to
Special Dispatch to the State Capital.
Spencer, Okla., July 22.—When the an-
nouncement was made yesterday that
coal had been found at Spencer, it was a
question whether It would be in paying
Muantities. This was settled today when
Mr. Uiviek, who is doing the drilling, an-
nounced that the vein was muro than
four feet In thickness and that tho sup-
ply would be great eno.ugh to furnish
fuel for years to come. The Citizens Oil,
Gas and Fuel company of Oklahoma City
was organised last winter with the ob-
ject of ascertaining whether there was
oil or gas in this vicinity and on the
advice of experts tho first drilling was
made near Spencer. The workmen had
bad luck with the drilling apparatus, los-
ing some machinery In one of the holes.
This Indirectly lead to the rinding of
the coal vein. The former hole was
abandoned and, procuring another drill,
the workmen began boring near the
first place. Before reaching the coal the
drill passed through a twenty-five vein
of whitish sandstone. Immediately after
this was passed the drill went through
the vein of coal.
From a geographical standpoint it is
plausible that coal exists at Spencer in
jiaying quantities. When coal was first
discovered at South McAlester the pros-
pectors drilled through sandstone •similar
to that found at Spencer. 1'tider this
vein of sandstone was discovered the
coal that now gives South McAlester an
inexhaustible supply of fuel. South Mc-
Alester Is 700 feet about the sea level, or
500 feet lower than Oklahoma City. The
coal at South McAlester crops out west
of the city and tho stratum extends In a
found at that city. At any rate. Mr.
Hivlck declares the supply of coal found
at Spencer will meet all demands, and la
of the finest quality west of Pennsylvania.
The drilling will be continued, and work
will be begun at once on the erection of
coal hoisting apparatus.
A meeting of the directors of the Citi-
zens Gas, Oil Water and Fuel company-
was held this morning and accepted the
report of Mr. Hivlck, who is doing the
drilling. Work will be continued and
the drill will be sunk farther in the hopes
of finding the gas or oil that Is usually
found tinder the coal veins in this coun-
try. Samples of the coal found were
brought to the surface, hut In such small
pieces that Is could not be properly
judged, as there Is no way yet to bring it
up except on the point of the drill, and
It Is broken In small pieces. Tho drill Is
now through the coal vein Into a soft
clay formation. The samples of coal
taken out are between a hard and soft
coal, and is far superior to that found
in the South McAlester district.
While the oil prospecting will ho con-
tinued. the coal vein will be developed,
and work will be begun shortly In erect-
ing hoisting apparatus and digging the
shaft for taking out the coal.

regard It as an honor and a credit to Up-

lothlng and treatment are such as .to
secure only tho highest credit from every
conversant with them. The Okla-
homau has a large circulation In this
city and locality and we do not believe
it would not wilfully misrepresent condi-
tions and would request that it make a
full and complete Investigation of this
