A Safe Paying
Industrial Bonds at 80 cents
on the $1.00.
An established, reliable man-
ufactory, marketing a high-class
product, can use additional cap-
ital to care for its increasing
business. It offers a small issue
of cupon brftids at 20 percent dis-

1100 bond for $80.
These bonds draw 6 percent in-
terest, mature in 9 years, and

According to the report of the
Hii Man's Union this is the
greatest cotton crop ever known
in-thc history of the south.
Their reports first of Novem-
ber show S,000,000 bales on the
.liarket as against 5,000,000 a
year ago. This doubtless is due
to the increase of acreage
throughout the southern states.

Ask For Reservation
Henryetta, Ok.. Nov. 9—
Specials are being sent to vari-
ous papers announcing that the
Snake Indians have decidcd to
take (heir allotments and will
bother the Government no more
by opposing the apportionment
of the lands. M. M. Lindley,
attorney for the Snakes, says
there was not a grain of truth
in the dispatches. The Snakes
will never take allotments.
They would rather die than do
this. Mcssers. Howe and Lind-
ley, have worked for some time
to secure a reservation for the
Snakes, the same a3 many tribes
throught the United States.
There is plenty of land suitable
for this, and the Snakes will
live on their reservation peace-
ably and quietly. Mr. Lindley
laughed at the idea of the Snakes
t iking allotments. '
Chitto Harjo recently said that
his people wou'd not lake allot-
ments. He is the original Crazy
Snaks and knows the wants of
his people, and he statec in a
most emphatic manner that his
people would never consent to a
"parceling of the land."
The Snake Indians have been
handed together since 1901. In
that year the Creek Council
signel the treaty with the com-
missioners of the United States
Government. By that treaty
the Cieek Nation passed into
history and ita people became
citizens of tha United States.
It was then tint Crazy Snake
and his few hundred reds seccded.
Insurrections followed and in the
year 1902 their Chief was placed
in the pmitentiary for con-
The Crazy Snake uprising has
caused much bloodshed. Several
of ti e Indians were killed in a
pitched battle with the Federal
officers. The band killed many
of their number because they
deserted and allowed th .'ir names
placed upon the rolls.—Dallas

How Famous Makers Got the Mellow
The old masters used such carc
in the selection of#the woods for
their instruments that, having
found a piece of wood of proper
fiber and vibrational powers, they
treasured every fragment, no matter
how small; and, rather than waste
even a particle of such a strip, they
frequently constructed the backs
and bellies of patches so del i eat el y
put together that "the seams are
only discoverable by microscope, so
perfect is the cabinet work," sava a
writer in the Circle.
It was ever the aim of the old
masters to "marry" the back of hard
sycamore, Vhich produces the quick
vibrations, and the belly of soft
wood, producing the slower sound-
waves, in such a manner as to give
the mellow but reedy timber of the
perfect instrument* Anatomically,
a violin made by an old master is a
miracle of construction; it can be
taken to pieces, patched, put togeth-
er, repaired indefinitely and is al-
most indestructible. Repairing has
been the means of exposing many
clever forgeries. The inside jf u
violin made by Stradivari, Guar-
nerius or other old masters is as
perfectly finished as is Uie outside
and the clumsy interior work of a
forgery betrays an imitation at

possessing the aspirations we all
have for doing something and the
perseveranee to suceeed in doing it.
"Oh," sighed her hest girl friend,
eoniing into her room one d;iy ami
commenting upon some of her suc-
cesses, "I always wonder how it is
that you suceeed in doing, things Bo
well. It seems to me that every
time you try to do a thing you man-
age to do it. Now, it's different
with me. I wish to do a great many
things, but somehow 1 never do
them. 1 wonder why it is?"
"Why," laughingly exclaimed the
aforesaid wise young ladv, who had
probably studied the weaknesses of
lier visiting friend, "I'll tell you
why it is, my dear. It's because j
you've got such a very strong wish-
