A Safe and
Sure Liquor Cure
Some say that the whiskey habit
bannot be cured in three days. If a
person takes a dose of a poisonous
drug and a doctor is called he gives
an antidote and expects a result In a
few minutes, because the antidote
neutralizes the poison and destroys it.
So It Is with our cure. This Is the
exact reason why we get the quick
results in the cure of the whiskey
We have permanently cured over
20,000 cases of alcoholic intemperance;
men and women, in all walks of life;
many of them persons of eminence
and probity, whose commendation can-
not be bought.
We have thousands of testimonials
at our offices from those who have
been treated and cured, and no un-
prejudiced. persons reading these

A man who v. as born in America
has won the professional golf cham-
pionship. There is no likelihood, how-
ever, that we shall be called upon to
send our boys to Scotland for the pur-
pose of teaching the fine points of the
game over there.
The largest and costliest building
thus far undertaken in New York, the
city of immense structures, is the
magnificent $10,000,000 Episcopal Ca-
thedral of St. John the Divine, now
belns erected cm Morningside
Heights. This will be the greatest sa-
cred edifice in America, and the
fourth in importance in the world.
At the government printing office
the new efficiency system arranged
by Public Printer Stillings has gone
into effect. This system is intended
to provide for a precise estimate as
to what a certain piece of work will
cost. Heretofore the basis of esti-
mates has been largely theoretical.
The employes were alarmed when
they learned that the dreaded effi-
ciency system had gone^ into effect,
fearing that it meant more work.
Mr. Stillings allayed their fears. The
new system simply preserves a rec-
ord of what work each employe is
able to do.
The figures of the domestic trade
of the United States, like those relat-
ing to foreign commerce, show big
gains for 1906 over the preceding
year. The increase is particularly
noteworthy in cattle, meat and grain
shipments, in production and con-
sumption of coal, in dealings in pro-
visions, cotton and other staples and

more abroad than ever before, but our
incomparable home market is develop-

A Cleveland girl has written to the
navy department saying she wants to
enlist. The navy Jacks have lots of
use for Jills, even aboard ship, only
they don't spell them that way. The
girl didn't say what she wanted to do
aboard shU>, but after she found the
key of the foretop, and had stuck a
Knife in the mainmast to raise a
nreeze, she would probably discover
some function of life at sea at present
unused, simply because it never oc-
curred to the department to ship
LABOR IS INTERESTED
County Lines and Boundaries Agi-
tate Labor Element at Guthrie
GUTHRIE: The county boundary
committee sessions are now executive
and no one Is allowed to appear be-
fore the committee except delegates
to the constitutional convention.
It was reported Friday night that an
agreement has been reached among
the delegates from the Third congres-
sional district as to the county lines
in that district.
A rumor was also in circulation that
the delegates from the fourth congres-
sional district had reached an agree-
ment, but this-report was later denied
by several delegates from that dis-
Agitation over the county boundary
question has reached the labor organ-
izations of the two territories, and a
meeting of the labor leaders is said to
have been held in this 'city to decide
upon a plan of action.
Secrecy is maintained as to the re-
sult of the meeting, but it is under-
stood that the organizations are to
take a decided stand against county
J. Harvey Lynch, in an interview
Friday evening, said:
"This county boundary and county
seat matter is getting to a point where
the interests of the great mass of
people are in danger of being neg-
"People are flocking^ here from ev-
ery section of the state to influence
the convention on county lines and
"Who are they?
"I do not see people coming here
by the car loads to lobby for the initi-
ative and referendum, a railway com-
mission or laws of vital interest to the
people under which we will have to
live for years.
"I wonder why.
"The facts of the matter are that
the great mass of the people listen to
the slogan 'Let the people rule' and be-
lieve that it will be the guiding
thought in the minds of the represen-
tatives, but today one is compelled to
ask himself if the people were fools
then or are to be fooled now?
"I do not see any great delegations
of farmers or laborers here lobbying
for any of the special or local inter-
ests. On the contrary we are receiv-
ing hundreds of letters and telegrams
asking us to do what we can to have
county lines and recording districts
lines remain as they are. Peter Han-
raty received 85 telegrams personally
along these lines yesterday. From a
canvass of the lobbyists, there seems
to be well represented the real estate
interests, the newspaper-would-be-
county-official-organs and county of-
All these Interests are active in
their efforts to have county lines so
arranged as to make certain towns
"Why do not these real estate meh,
these newspaper men and these poli-
ticians come here in car load lots to
do a little lobbying for some of the
vital measures for which the dominant
party declared so emphatically and
which made their majority so great
in this convention?
"Prior to this time the labor inter-
ests had no thought of being drawn in-
to any county seat or county boundary
line affair, but judging from the trend
in which things seem to be drifting it
is necessary for some influence to be
brought to bear upon the convention
that will assist the delegates who so
desire to resist the <i::lance of these
lobbyists and proceed with the work
for which the people elected them, to
frame a constitution which will pro-
tect the people in their interests gen-
erally as against the encroachmen! of
corporate greed and all monopolistic
"Therefore, it is our purpose to let
the folks at home know what is going
on and ask that they stimulate their
respective delegates bv communica-
tions and petitions and otherwise, to
resist all lobbying Influences

Where Lawyers Are Unpopular.

The Evils of Constipation.
are many; in fact almost every se-
rious illness has its origin in consti-
pation, and some medicines, instead of
preventing constipation, add to it.
This is true of most cathartics, which,
when first used, have a beneficial ef-
fect, but the dose has to be contin-
ually increased, and before long the
remedy ceases to have the slightest
effect. There is one preparation, how-
ever, that can be relied upon to pro-
duce the same results with the same
dose, even after fifty years' daily
use, and this is Braudreth's Pills,
which has a record of over 100 years
as the standard remedy for constipa-
tion and all troubles arising from an
impure state of the blood.
Brandreth's Pills are the same fine
laxative tonic pill your grandparents
used, and are for sole everywhere,
either plain or sugar coated.

Magnificent Crop Returns f r the
The manner in which the Canadian
West has attracted settlers in recent
years has caused many of our journals
and public men to "sit up and take no-
tice," to use a current phrase. From
every European country and from al-
most every State in the Union large
number of settlers have flocked to the
prairie provinces of Canada, where
free homesteads and wide opportun-
ities are open to all who desire to
avail themselves of them.
The greatest factor In attracting
settlers lies in the inherent richness
of soil and suitability of climate for
producing what is universally consid-
ered to be the finest wheat in the
world—the "No. 1 Hard" of Canadian
growth—and other cereals that rank
in the very first class. This year the
harvest returns were: Wheat, 90,-
000,000 bushels; oats, 76,000,000 bush-
els; barley, 17,000,000 bushels; and
when It is considered that the entire
population of the three provinces—as
evidenced by the quinquennial census
just completed—Is only 810,000, it is
easily seen that the lure of the Cana-
dian West is in its agricultural poten-
Another feature which attracts the
settler is that railway construction is
proceeding with such rapidity that al-
most every district is within easy
reach of outside markets, and that
good prices for all llne8 of farm prod-
ucts rule practically from the com-
mencement of agricultural operations.
This is a factor which did not prevail
when the earlier settlements in the
West were made in Canada and in the
United States, and has given a great
impetus to Canadian Western settle-
ment in recent years.
The free grant system of home-
steads which prevails in the prairie
provinces, by which every settler who
is able and willing to comply with the
conditions of actual settlement (by no
means onerous) is given 160 acres
free, except $10 for entry, is a great
drawing card, and in the last fiscal
year gathered in over 189,000 addi-
tional to the western population, of
which 57,796 were from the United
The further fact, as is strongly
brought about by the agent of the
Canadian Government, whose address
appears elsewhere, that a splendid
common school system, practically
free, prevails throughout the entire
country, and is easy of access in even
the most remote districts, is another
great inducement to the settler who
has the future welfare of his family
in mind, and this, coupled with the
fact that western Canadian law and
order are proverbial, completes a
circle of good and sufficient reasons
why the tide of immigration has set
in so steadily toward the country to
the north of our boundary line.
Gen. Rucker Now.
Living quietly in retirement in
Washington in his ninety-fifth year
is Gen. Daniel H. Rucker, father-in-
law of Phil Sheridan and boyhood
chum of Sherman, whom he resem-
bles more than a little ,in appearance.
He was born in Belleville, N. J., and
at an early age enlisted in the army
and served on the frontier, being a
great friend of Kit Carson. He served
during the Mexican war as well as
the civil war and has lived in Wash-
ington a number of years.
Sheer white goods, In fact, any fine
wash goods when new, owe much of
their attractiveness to the way they
are laundered, this being done in a
manner to enhance their textile beau-
ty. Home laundering would be equal-
ly satisfactory if proper attention was
given to starching, the first essential
being good Starch, which has sufficient
strength to stiffen, without thickening
the goods. Try Defiance Starch and
you will be pleasantly surprised at the
improved appearance of your work.
