GOVERNOR DEPLORES TRAGEDY
ENACTED AT ADA
Officials of Pontotoc County Fail
Notify Governor Haskell—Citi-
zens of Ada are Greatly
Guthrie, Okla.—Governor Haskell
Tuesday night Btated that he had not
been officially notified of the lynching
at Ada, early Monday morning, of
West, Miller, Allen and Buirell, but
that he had issued instructions to the
officials of Pontotoc county to make a
vigorous investigation and that those
who were in any manner implicated
in the unlawful killing must be pros-
ecuted to the full extent of the law.
A special grand jury will be called to
meet at Ada and investigate the
Governor Haskell is not feeling es-
pecially kind toward the officials of
the county in which Ada is located,
and said that "although the guards of
the county jail had been assaulted,
knocked senseless, bound and gagged
and four men taken from them and
lynched'by a mob of from one to two
hundred men," he had received no of-
ficial notice of the crime.
Reward to Be Offered
The governor late Tuesday evening
stated that a reward would be offered
for the conviction of members of the
mob as soon as official notice had
reached his office.
A special agent of the state has re-
ported that the mob, when it went to
the jail, had no intention of hanging
others than "Jim" Miller; that Miller
had been removed from his cell and
taJien out into the presencee of the
mob and examined for over two hours
and that at the conclusion of the
examination the mob returned to tho
jail and took the other three men out
and marched to the barn, where all
four were hanged.
In a dispatch from the sheriff of
Pontotoc county it was contended
that there was not the slightest
clue as to who made up the mob, and
that the leaders questioned the jail of-
ficials where the bound guards could
hear all that Miller said; that Miller
made a complete confession in which
he implicated all of the dead men.
Oklahoma state officers greatly de-
plore the acts of the Ada mob, and a
public sentiment seems to feel that
the hanging of four men will have a
tendency to clear up the atmosphere
in that part of the state and make it
absolutely safe, in the future, for hon-
est people to exist.
AWAITS FATE IN PALACE
Sultan of Turkey Refuses to Leave
Constantinople.—Sultan Abdul Ha-
mid is waiting in his palace for what-
ever may befall. He has not taken
flight, and his grand vizier, Tewfik
Pasha, ha3 announced that, without
fear, the sultan will remain with his
family and accept resignedly the fate
which has been prepared for him and
Tewfik Pasha and the minister of
war, Edhim Pasha, who sent in their
resignations to the sultan Monday
night, decided to withdraw them
Tuesday, and the grand vizier is
spending most of the time with his
majesty. Nazim Pasha is still in com-
mand of the garrison, but no prepara-
tions have been made to offer any re-
sistance to the advance of the Salon-
At least five thousand persons,
practically all Christians, have lost
their lives in the massacres that have
been going on in the villayet of Ada-

cism. Two hundred victims were Mos-

SAVING PAINT MONEY THE WRETCHES.
It Cannot Be Done by Using Cheap
Material and Cheap Painters.
In arranging for painting-, a good
many property-owners try to Bave
money by employing the painter who
offers to do the job cheapest—or try
to Bave money by insisting on a low-
priced paint. But no property-owner
would run such risks if he realized
what must be taken into considera-
tion in order to get a job that will
wear and give thorough satisfaction.

BABY'S WATERY ECZEMA
Itched and Scratched Until Blood Ran
—$50 Spent on Useless Treatments
—Disease Seemed Incurable.
Cured by Cuticura for $1.50.
"When my little boy was two and a
half months old he broke out on both
cheeks with eczema. It was the itchy,
watery kind and we had to keep his
little hands wrapped up all the time,
and if he would happen to get them
uncovered he would claw his face till
the blood streamed down on his cloth-
ing. We called in a physician at once,
but he gave an ointment which was so
severe that my babe would scream
when it was put. on. Wo changed
doctors and medicine until we had
spent fifty dollars or more and baby
was getting worse. I was so worn out
watching and caring for him night and
day that I almost felt sure the disease
was incurable. But finally reading of
the good results of the Cuticura Rem-
edies, I determined to try them. I
can truthfully say I was more than
surprised, for I bought only a dollar
and a halts worth of the Cuticura
Remedies (Cuticura Soap, Ointment
and Pills), and they did more good than
all my doctors' medicines I had tried,
and in fact entirely cured him. His

as with joyous hearts and smiling faces they romp and play—when in health—and
how conducive to health the games in which they indulge, the outdoor li e they
enioy the cleanly, regular habits they should be taught to form and the wholesome
diet of which they should partake. How tenderly their health should be preserved,
not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an injuri-
ous or objectionable nature, and if at any time a remedial agent Is required, to assist
nature only those of known excellence should be used; remedies which are pure
and wholesome and truly beneficial in effect, like the pleasant laxative remedy,
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna has come into general favor in many millions of
well informed families, whose estimate of its quality and excellence is based upon
personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna has also met with the approval of physicians gen-
erally because they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We Inform
all reputable physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna obtained by an original method, from certain plants known to them to act
most beneficially, and presented in an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Cal-
ifornian blue figs are used to promote the pleasant taste; therefore it is not a secret
remedy, and hence we are free to refer to all well informed physicians, who do
not approve of patent medicines and never favor indiscriminate self-medicaUon.
Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Figs
and Elixir of Senna always has the full name of the Company California Fig
Svrup Co —plainly printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale in
bottles of one size only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent
size or having printed thereon the name of any other company, do not accept it.
If you fail to get the genuine you will not get its beneficial effects. Every family
should always have a bottle on hand, as it is equally beneficial for the parents and
the children, whenever a laxative remedy is required.
