Oklahoma City, Sept 11, 1905.
Dr. D. F. Smith: —
Dear Sir:—1 will write you a few
lines to let you know 1 am getting
well since I have commenced taking

I commenced taking their treatment
I got worse and had to go to bed. 1

1 got weaker all the time. 1 was in

Dr. D. F. Smith: —
Dear Sir:—This Is to certify that
I have been cured of catarrh. I was
afflicted with catarrh for seven
years; have been cured; only used one
bottle. Would advise all who suffer
with catarrh to use Dr. D. F. Smith s
remedy. Yours truly,
MRS. TOM THORNTON.
To the people who are suffering
from catarrh let me say, give Dr.
Smith's Catarrh Cure a trial, for it
will surely cure you. I can substanti-
ate every word I say In this by two-
thirds of the citizens of Lexington,
Okla., the town in which I have been
living for the past five years: had suf-
fered from catarrh for twelve years,
and eight doctors treated we with-
out success. T grew worse and was
almost dead when Dr. Smith came to
my house. I took two and one-half
bottles of Ills remedy and am com-
pletely cured. I could not sing or
read aloud when I began taking the
medicine and can now do both with
ease. My husband had spent all he
made for twelve years with doctors,
with no relief, and Dr. Smith, with
an expenditure of $3.00 cured me
sound and well. If any one doubts
this let them address me and 1 will
give them all the Information they

BE A MAN.
Under this head, the National Co
Operator closes an article with these
The country 'merchant does not
sleep on flowery beds of ease, nor
have thornless paths to pursue. He
has his living to make, and always a
good part of the capital he has Invested
Is his credit, and his credit he must
keep good or quit business, and when
debts are due him he must collect
tnat he may pay what he owes. The
statistics show that 97 per cent of the
merchants who sell their goods on a
credit, no matter how they safeguard
themselves, fail and become bankrupt.
Just think of these figures! Out of
every 100 merchants who sell on
credit, ninety-seven of them break!
Can you blame the merchant, then, foT
seeking every protection he can? The
Golden Rule is the motto of our
order, the very Mfe and soil of the
Fanners' Union, so let's live up to it,
In thought and words, as well as In
What each one of us needs to do is
to raise our living at home so that we
will not have to buy at all save the
few things we cannot raise. If we
will do that, not one of us will be
forced into the "dumper" ranks; not
one of us will have to put ourselves
under obligations to other people, and
fret our heart Into repining because
of theee obligations.
See to It this year, friends, that you
put a sufficient portion or your lands
Into forage crops for your livestock
and foodstuffs for your family to last
until another crop comes on. You can
d< it. and If you fall to do so, you are
untrue to your wives and children, un-
true to yourselves, uutrue to your
union, untrue to your country.
Holy writ teaches us that the man
who provides not for his family is
worse than the heathen.
Turn ever a new leaf. Begin life
ovo- again and resolve to belong to no
human being, save your wife, your
children and yourself, and to have
your granary, your smoke-house and
your pantry on your own promises.

land will yield two or three crops in-

cotton growing In Niger date back

build a raiwav into this territory, us-
ing only the lower part of the river
Niger as part of the transportation
system up 70 miles from the coast.
Te head of navigation is at Baro. from
there the road will run through several
towns to Kano, the capital of Hausa-
land, a town of 35,000. There the road
is expected to connect with other
roads, which have been projected. The
total length will be about 500 miles,
and it Is expected to be completed in
Te cotton industry of Lancashire,
England, Is dependent on the Ameri-
can market, and a shortage in that
market causes embarrassment of I Lan-
cashire. The British cotton growing
association desires to multiply the ro
sources of cotton supply, so that with
many fields available, the climate risk
may be averted and the deficiencies in
one direction made good by abundance
in another; then, too, the British are
perfectly wlllig to raise cotton under
the Brtlsh flag rather than buy it from
other nations. It la anticipated that as
soon as the railroad la completed n
great deal of cotton will be raised in

The legislatures of most of the
Southern States have been composed

like the sort of legislation you have
been having, get together and put out
the men you want for these places and
elect them. The Union would sit down
on any sort of political claptrap, but
the members of the Union can and
ought to get together, an-d pick out
the very best men they can find and
put them in office.

one more to the crowd. You always
vote for the president, and it's mighty
few of us whose votes have had much
to do with electing him, this, however,
