tice of the state supreme court, died
suddenly in his apartments in the
Lee-Huckins hotel, following an attack
of acute indigestion.
Although he had been ill for sev-
eral days his condition was not re-
garded serious by his family or physi-
cian, and the news of his death came
as a profound shock in state house
circles and to friends in Oklahoma
City and throughout the state. A
short time before the end came his
physician visited him and gave him
assurance that he was on the road to

suffered from a weak heart and this
was one of the contributing causes of
his death. He was first taken ill
while attending a meeting of the locai
bar association at Hugo a week before
his death. He was scheduled to make
an address before the meeting of the
state editors' association at Ardmore,
but had to cancel the engagement to
speak on account of his illness, al-
though he attended the meeting.

most of the time since then, but was
present at the session of the court,
and occupied his seat on the bench

Are Your Kidneys Weak?
You may have kidney trouble and not
know it. The only signs may be occa-
sional twinges in the small of the back,
constant lameness, dizzy spells or some
annoying irregularity of the kidney action.
But no sign of kidney trouble can be
safely ignored. Kidney disease moves
rapidly. It leads to dropsy, gravel,
Bright's disease, rheumatism.
If you suspect that your kidneys are
sluggish, use Doan's Kidney Pills,
which have relieved thousands.

UNABLE TO SEE THE JOKE
Probably Druggist Was of the Same
Opinion as His Small Colored
A druggist, who had a little colored
errand boy, fell into the habit of play-
ing practical jokes on him. One day
the druggist was mixing some com-
bustible oils. Suddenly there was a
terrific explosion, which hurled the
chemist in one direction and the little
darky in another, while the whole
place burst forth into flames.
After a time a black figure emerged
from under a counter, whimpering and
rubbing a rapidly growing bump on
his head. He limped over to where
the druggist sat, half-dazed, with a
deep cut across his forehead.
"You hadn't oughter play wid me
dat-a-way, doctor," he said, reproach-
fully. "Dat shore ain't no way to

PROSPECTS FOR 1914
Excellent Spring for Work and
Wheat Seeding About
The writer has just returned from
an extensive trip through the Prov-
inces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, In Western Canada. The crop
conditions are the very best, and no
one locality seems to have an advan-
tage over another in this respect. The
uniformity in growth is remarkable,
and in all parts of the three provinces
spring wheat at the time of writing,
May 10th, is well above the ground
from two to three Inches. Consider-
able fall plowing was done last year,
and tills, with the summer fallow, is
already seeded, so that practically
wheat seeding is over by this date.
Everywhere the farmers are busy and
the whole country presents one great
scene of activity—three-horse, four-
horse and five-horse teams are busy
preparing land for barley, oats and
flax. On some of the larger farms
batteries o? sleain and gasoline out-
fits are at work, but in a great many
districts where these have been oper-
ated in the past they are being dis-
placed by horses, owing no doubt par-
tially to the difficulty of securing ex-
perienced men to operate them. Any-
way, thece is being put into agricul-
ture in Western Canada, greater ef-
fort with more promise than for some
years past. The soil is in the best
possible condition; moisture has been
sufficient, there have been no winds
to dry out the soil, and if the farmers
have had to lay up for a day or so
now and again, It was merely that the
ground might have the advantage of
the rain and an occasional snow,
which promise so much for the grow-
ing crop. With some warm weather
the grain will come along in a man-
ner that will equal the best years
Western Canada has ever had.
It must not be thought from this
that the farmers are full bent on se-
curing a grain crop alone. In nearly
every district there is more and more
the indication and Inclination to go
into mixed farming. Herds of cattle
now dot the plains that up to the
present had been fully given up to
grain growing, hogs and sheep are In
evidence. New buildings are to be
seen on a great many places, these
being pig houses and cow stables, al-
though protection of cattle is not regu-
larly required, excepting for calves
and such cows as it may be necessary
to house from time to time.
The growing of alfalfa and other
fodder grasses Is an Industry that is
being rapidly developed.
During this spring a splendid class
of new settlers have gone in, many of
them from the eastern states. These
have seen what success the western
and central states man has achieved
In Western Canada, and are now go-
ing In in hundreds. The movement
from Montana, Oregon and Washing-
ton to Canada continues without any
abatement as to numbers and value of
effects, while the central and eastern
states are still sending an excellent
class of farmers with means sufficient
to begin farming on a scale that will
pay from the start.
Those who contemplate visiting the
Panama Exposition next year will find
that one of the most Interesting trips
they can make will be via the Cana-
dian West. There will be three lines
of railway they can use—the Canadian
Pacific, Canadian Northern and Grand
Trunk Pacific, all of which will have
through to coast lines completed. Thus
will be given a view of prairie, wood-
land and mountain scenery unexcelled

other young millionaires in various
parts of the country joining the Sal-

world think a bit—to make it stop,
look, and listen. There is something
which comes home to everybody In
such a spectacle, and which is not to
be dismissed as an emotional crusad-
ing outburst. In many ways the re-
ligious impulse of the age shares the
democratic spirit that is dominant In
political and economic spheres, and is
coming out from high places into the
highways and hedges in order to get
face to face with the masses.

Best Way to Open Bolls.
It is exceedingly painful to touch a
boil, even when it Is large enough to
open. A correspondent writes that
the best way to do this is to paint
a ring or collodion, which can be pur-
chased In any drug store, around it,
being careful not to put any directly
over the boil. As the alcohol evap-
orates the collodion In drying will ex-
ert a gentle but firm pressure all
around the boil, not only opening it,
but forcing out its contents, which
should be absorbed by a perfectly
