Pills are unlike all oth-
er laxatives or cathar-
tics. They coax the
livair into activity by
gentle methods, they
do not scour; they do
not gripe; they do not i PROPOSED
weaken; but they do
start all the secretion*
of the liver and stom-
ach in a way that soon
puts these organs in a
healthy condition and
Pills are a tonic to the stomach, liver and
nerves. They invigorate instead of weaken;
they enrich the blood instead of impover-
ishing it; they enable the stomach to get all
the nourishment from food that is put into
it. Price 25 cents. All Druggists.

woman begged the kind old gentleman
to write his friend's name and address
on a piece of paper.
When he had gone upstairs she
looked at the slip of paper which he

Mexico City—Hostilities were re-
sumed with renewed fierceness in the
Mexican capital Sunday after a truce
which lasted only a few hours.
It appeared as if the words of Ma-
dero and Diaz might prove prophetic
and that this time the battle would be
to a finish.
President Madero reiterated bis re-
fusal to comply with the suggestion
of the senators that he resign. He
declared that he was still able to dom-
inate and that if given time be would
crush the rebl forces.
General Diaz had not shown him-
self to be greatly in > favor of the
armistice, but consented to It out of
respect to the efforts of the American
ambassador and the ministers of the
power to bring about a cessation ot
hostilities until foreigners and other
non-combatants still in the zone of
fighting could be removed to a place of
Early Sunday morning the embassy
was the scene of intense activity. A
dozen automobiles moved swiftly to
and fro, carrying refugees, provisions
and messages. The embassy building
was besieged by hundreds, not all of
them Americans, who asked for advice
or assistance. There is little actual
suffering from lack of food or shelter
within the city, but there is a vast
amount of discomfort and great danger
to those who remain.
Mis-statements by Mexican federal
officials concerning the intentions ol
the United States in the present crisis,
which so influenced the populace In
the capital, are being made throughout
the republic with similar effect. •Con-

the countryside on account of unau-

In that port Saturday, so bitter were
outbreaks resulting in some cases in
assaults upon American citizens who
were peaceably passing through the
streets. With the South Dakota at
Acapulco and the Colorado at Maza-
tlan, officials feel that there will be
an abatement of thes outbreaks.
No Intervention Yet
Washington—After a confernce of
an hour and a half with Secretary
of State Knox, President Taft called
a special meting of the cabinet to dis-
cuss the late dispatches frpm Mexico.
The report from Mexico City that the
armistice had been declared off and
that hostllltlee had been resumed
caused intense interest among the cab-

to learn that communication between

carious and that an apparently strict
censorship has been Instituted by Mex-

Leo Meyer. J- C. McClelland
A sensational climax to the impeachment proceedings brought
against Leo. Meyer, state auditor, came when that officer, through his at-
torney, submitted his resignation to Governor Cruce. '1 he resignation was
unconditional. J. C. McClelland, member of the state banking board, was
immediately appointed to succeed Meyer.
In a eOKement Meyer said:
"These charges have been framed up ajalnst me and I am tired of
facing false accusers. 1 have gotten all I want out of politics and I must
devote a little time to my family. These charges are preying on the health
of members of my family and 1 de-cided that It would be best to have th
e proceedings stopped if possible."
The news of tho resignation of the state auditor came as fi bolt of light-
ning from a celar sky just on the eve of the beginning of his trial on Im-
peachment charges in the senate.

ceived, was passed finally with only
Miss Barnard Turned Down
The house tabled a resolution Bigned
by twenty-six members of the "farm-
ers' " caucus inviting MIsb Kate Bar-
nard, state commissioner of charities
members voting against it. As and corrections, to address that branch
the bill left for the senate, It contains
a section repealing, without prejudice
to anyone's vested rights, the famous
"riparian rightB" section, because of
which Governor Cruce held up the
publication of the code and laid the
basis for the code or sand-and-gravel
The amended Pruett bill, reestab-
lishing the old system of elctlng the
state board of agriculture by delegates
from county conventions or Institutes,
was passed finally.
The other two bills passed finally Is

The Maxey-Wyand-Carr resolution
giving the assent of the state to a
dam across the Grand river out .from
Muskogee for water power purposes, a
long cherished dream of Muskogee
boosters, was passed by the house and
goes ti/ the senate. The assent of the
state is a requirement of the national
war department who control all
streams capable of navigation.

The house committe on privileges,
and elections reported on the Marshall
county contest, giving the seat to Rep-
resentative" C. H. Tomes, Incumbent,
against Ben F. Perdue, contestant, on
the grounds that there was no evi-
dence to sustain the contest.
The famous "chiropractic" bill,
which has been a great bone of con-
tention In all past legislatures, wai
reported out of coiumitte unfavorably
but with a minority report which puts
it on the calendar and allows a fight
over It this session.
The Russell bill, to abolish the coun-
ty demonstration farms, was recom-
mended from committee favorably.
The Sharp bill to prohibit bookmak-
ing, or betting on horse races, was re-
ported out of committe unfavorably,
but with a minority report which
places It on the calendar.
£an Not Syve Again
The house passed finaly the Barrett
bill from the senate requiring rall-
rouds to maintain hospital service in
the Btate and the bill desired by the
newspaper men of the state, also by
Barrett, providing for taxing legal pub-
lications as a part of the costs In each
A new bill by Griggs, which has
bearing on the Meyer case, provides
that when any officer shall resign with
charges pending against him this act
shall operate to disqualify him from
again holding office. A proposed cons ti.
tutional amendment by Morris pro-
vides for the appointment of the clerk
of the supreme court by the cotirt
instead of by the people as now pro-
vided. Mr. Morris takes the position
that thiB office Is merely clerical and

who it shall have for Us clerk.

sent in plain
of the legislature. Members objected
to making the precedent, Baying that If
they allowed Miss Barnard's request,
they would be flofided with simlar res-
olutions asking other officials to ex-
plain this or that.
This resolution which was adopted
at the caucus of farmer members of
the legislature, asked that Miss Bar-
nard be heard on the vital necessity
of the department of charities and cor-
rections continuing its work of defend-
ing the Indian orphans from land
grafters and not be restricted by pro-
posed legislation to hamper the work
of the department. No mention was
made in the resolution to the charges
which were suddenly brought in ex-
ecutive session, against Dr. J. H. Stol-
per, attorney in Miss Barnard's depart-
ment, to the effect that he had been
retained in a case involving a parole.
Two bills In direct sequence to
United States Senator Owen's sugges-
tions to the legislature. The senator
especially urged legislation for the
protection of Indian minors In the pro-
bate courts and guardianship proced-
ure, and the bill by Hill of Pittsburg,
which passed the house applies di-
rectly to this point. The Teehee-
Fields bill aims directly to protect the
ignorant fullbloods In the sale of
"dead claims" of land inheritances
from deceased kindred. The Hill (of
Pittsbur bill of r procedue In In-
dian minor and Inheritance matters,
amends the present laws to prohibit
guardians expending money on ac-
count of wards, except In sickness,
when the amount is not to exceed >25,
unless the county court gives permis-
sion before hand. Release of guardian-
Bhlp must be accompanied by proof
offered In open court that the release
was obtained from the ward now of
age fairly and without undue influ-
ence. The sentiment 1b generally in
favor of the bills and they will very
likely pass the senate.
As to the Wedding Garb.
Colonel Watterson occasionally
turns his attention from dressing
down candidates to dressing up Inquir-
ing correspondents. Listen to this ad-
vice from the Louisville Courier-Jour-
"There are two reasons for being
married In a dresB suit, young man.
It's fashionable, and it's your last
chance to get a dress suit."
This can be considered good advice,
founded on observation and experi-
ence, even if it is a little pesBlmiBtic

Will Disburse Funds
' Dr. J. C. Mahr, state commissioner
of health, aB soon as Governor Cruce
signs the Hunter-McAllster bill,
which appropriated $10,000 for sup-
pression of the smallpox epidemic in
southern Oklahoma, will arrange a
plan in connection with local health
superintendents for the disbursement
of the funds. The epidemic is confined
principally to Choctaw, McCurtain and
Pushmataha counties but there are
also a number of cases In all of the
two southern tiers of counties of the
Fifth Abolition Measure Passed
