ANNUAL EPISCOPAL CONVOCATION BEGINS HERE TOMORROW
OUT FOR TROUBLE
London, May 19—Now that it seems
definitely established that Admiral Ro-
jestvensky has started in his northward
journey there is a great revival of inter-
est here in the far eastern campaign.
Kamchang, where provision junks are
said to be waiting for the Russian fleet,
Is the most northward of French posses-
sions on the Chinese sea and the port
which Rojestvensky can set for his final
departure to meet the Japanese. It has
a fine anchorage and a sheltered chan-
nel where a large fleet may ride in
Reports still circulate in London to the
effect that the Russian Pacific fleet ar-
rangements are extremely inadequate
and have been the main cause of its pro-
longed stay in Indo-Chinese waters, and
that the admiral is finding difficulty in
Singapore, May 19—The Russian fleet
was in latitude 13.30 north and longi-
tude ji 1.30east (about 120 miles north-

FLAG DAY NAMED
BY THE GOVERNOR
Governor Tom Ferguson has issued
the following Flag dav proclamation:
Patriotism is the rock from which flows
the stream of national life. Teach it to
the young. Install it into the mind and
heart of every citizen. Let the present
as well as the coming generations know
that a people who would live as a nation
must cultivate a love for flag and devo-
tion to country. The greatest govern-
ment that the world has ever known is
the one over which floats our own starry
banner. Wherever that flag floats it is
an emblem of liberty and hope. It re
presents the same thing at all times and
in all places—no difference whether kiss
ed by the breeze of our own native land
or standing sentinel and keeping vigils,
in a vanguard on a foreign shore.
Every good citizen should aid in culti-
vating a sentiment in patriotism and in
promoting a healthy national spirit.
Theref«it, in harmony with a com-
mendable public desire, I designate and
proclaim Wednesday, June 14, 1905, as
Flag day, and recommend that the Ameri-
can flag be displayed over home, church
end school house, public and private
buildings, and in any other place where
it can represent the patriotism of a liber-
ty loving people.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto
set my hand and caused the great seal of
the Territory of Oklahoma to be affixed
at Guthrie, this 18th day of May, 1905.
By the Governor; Secretary of Territory
WHY SUFFER FROM RHEUMATISM?
Why suffer from rheumatism when one
application of Chamberlain's Pain Balm
will relieve the pain? The quick relief
whicbjtliis liniment affords makes rest
and sleep possible, and that alone is
worth many times its ccst. Many who
have used it hoping only for a short re-
leif from suffering have been happilyt
surprised to find that after awhile the re-
lief became permanent. Mrs. V. H Leg-
gett, of Yum Yum, Tenn., U. S. A.,
writes: "I am a great sufferer from
rheumatism, all over from my bead to
foot, and Chamberlain's Pain Balm is the
only thing that will relieve the pain."

GROWING ACHES AND PAINS.
Mrs. Josie Sumner, Bremotid, Texas,
writes, April 15, 1902: "I hav used
Ballard's Snow Liniment in my family
for four years. I would not be without
it in the house. I have used it on my
little girl for growing pains and aches in
her knees. It cured her right away. I
have also used it for frost bitten feet,
with good success. It is the best lini
ment I ever used." 25c, 50c, fi. Sold

CHAMBERLAIN'S COUGH REMEDY
THE VERY BEST.
"I have been using Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and want to say it is the
best cough medicine I have ever taken,"
says Geo. L. Chubb, a merchant of Har-
lan, Mich. There is no question about
its being the best, as it will cure a cough
or cold in less time than any other treat-
ment. It should always be kept in the
house ready for instance use, for a cold
can be cured in much less time when
promptly treated. For sale by Owl and
Cresent drug stores, *

at 424 South Beard street by Rev. Snyder.
Ever body invited.
GIRLS, READ AND PONDER WELL.
ifO many young ladies there are who
in spite of tne wretchedness they
see repu'iting from marrying tip-
plers, are still willing to run the
risk themselves. They cannot be
brought to believe that the one
glass taken now and then will, in
nine cases out of ten, increase to three, four, five,and
even more, until the habit has a man in its grasp, as
a vice—never to relax its hold, until the wife and
family have run through the whole gamut of wretch-
edness and death closes the scene.
Shame and sorrow follow in the footsteps of the
drinking man as sure as night follows day. Girls
often refuse a man because he is poor, or his social
position does not please; but how many girls would
refuse a rich tippler? Wealth blinds them to the ter-
rible future which a drunkard will bring to them—
wealth cannot, however, soothe the pang of disap-
pointment and disgrace which an intemperate man
causes his family.
Girls, take a friend's advioe. Reject the hand of
a man who will not abstain from the intoxicating oup.
Your happiness and respectability in this life; per-
haps your salvation in the next, are involved in this
question. Marry a teetotaler, though he be poor;
though his garments be coarse, his manners a trifle
rough; he can oultivate the latter, and when his for-
tune changes, as change it will, his outward garb can
also be improved; and what is there so noble as a
young man who his virtue, character, integrity?
Only one thing—the girl who has sense enough to ap-
preciate these qualities and who, by wedding them,
insures herself a peaceful and self-respecting life.

El Reno, Ok., May 19—Lieut. E. L.
Chapman of the Twenty-fifth infantry
(colored) was killed Thursday at Fort

When Miller Brothers, of the 101 ranch,
decided to not only entertain the mem-
bers of the National Editorial Association
at the rai.ch 011 June 11, just after the
meeting of the Association at Guthrie,
but also to give the people of Oklahoma
and Kansas an opportunity to see the en-
tertainment prepared for the Editors,
they were confronted by the very serious
question of feeding the people. They got
out of it in easy shape by letting the con-
tract to the J. E. Hutt Contracting Co.
This company will feed the people who
are not members of the editorial associa-
tion or the especially invited guests of
the Miller Brothers. These will be cared
fo" by Miller Brothers themselves and
one of the items on the menu for their
noonday meal is buffalo steak.

To cold draughts of air, to keen and
cutting winds, sudden changes of tem-
perature, scanty clothing, undue expos-

speaking and singing, bring 011 coughs
and colds. Ballard's Horehound Syrup
is the best cure.
Mrs. A. Barr, Houston, Tex., wrTles,

Horehound Syrup cured me of a very bad
cough. It is very pleasant to take." 25,

The main officials of the Santa Fe are
holding a session ut Topeka and alio at.
Chicago this week revising the time card
for the (,'iitire system and arranging for
new trains on many of the branches.
Representatives of the Oklahoma divis-
ions are present at Topeka and their visit
may result in several changes in time 011
the Eastern Oklahoma and also on the
Oklahoma City divisioi. New trains
through to the Texas points will also be
arranged and the Eastern Oklahoma di-
vision passing through Shawnee will be
recognized as the through route to Texas
lor passenger as well as freight service.
This line is now handling by far the
greatest part of the Texas business in
freight and passenger service would have
been installed earlier but for dtfficulty in
making mail contracts. The division
has two passenger trains daily at the
present time, both carrying local mail,
and 15 to 40 freight trains a day change
Just what changes will be made caunot
lie announced at this time, but as the
meetings at Topeka and Chicago are gen-
eral officials' conference there is reason
to believe that a complete change will be
made all over the system.
