AN EARLY VICTIM.
"What Is the matter, Jack?"
"Boohoo! Catherine says she's dfr
elded 1 ain't her affinity after all!"
Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory If the right
Starch were used. In orjjer to get the
desired stiffness, It Is usually neces-
sary to use so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric Is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also afreets the wear-
ing quality of the goods. This trou-
ble can be entirely overcome by using
Defiance Starch, as It can be applied
much more thinly because of its great-
er strength than other makes.
Otto E. Schaar, president of the
Waiters' club of New York, In a re-
cent argument on tipping, said to his
^opponent, sharply: "Your reply re-
minds me of a woman's reply in a
German court. This woman was ac-
cused of poisoning her husband. The
prosecuting attorney said to her:
''You have heard the evidence. The
body contained enough arsenic to kill
(ten persons. What have you to say?'
'My husband,' the woman answered,
'was & big eater.'"
Sheer white goods, in fact, any fine
fwash goods when new, owe much of
Iheir attractiveness to the way they
jare 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
■trength to stiffen, without thickening
the goods. Try Defiance Starch and
you will be pleasantly surprised at the
Improved appearance of your work.
Wouldn't Wash It.
"What is that young man doing out
"Trying to attract my attention with
the handkerchief flirtation, I guess."
"You do not seem to be respond-
"No, I am not his laundress."—Nash
No one is so blind to his own fanltf
as a man who has the habit of detect
ing the faults of others.—Faber.

LYDIA E. PINKHA
No other medicine has been so
successful in relieving the suffering
of women or received so many gen-
uine testimonials as has Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
In every community you will find
women who have been restored to
health by Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg-
etable Compound. Almost every
one you meet has either been bene-
fited by it, or has friends who have.
In the Pinkham Laboratory at
Lynn,Mass., any woman any day may
Bee the tiles containing over one mil-
lion one hundred thousand letters
from women seeking health, and
here are the letters in which they
openly state over their own signa-
tures that they were cured by Lydia
K. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has saved many women
from surgical operations.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound is made from roots and
herbs, without drugs, and is whole-
some and harmless.
The reason why Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound is so
successful is because it contains in-

nue hotel from an unknown cause.
The loss is about $6,000. The build-

skull crushed and his body almost
entirely consumed, Charley Madison,
a wealthy negro of Kingfisher, wa
found dead in the ruins of his house
and the officers are without a clue
to the identity of the perpetrators of
the crime. Robbery was evidently
the motive, for $4,200 which Madison
received for a farm a few hours be-
fore his violent death has disap-
Will Pursue the Grafters.—Judge
Luman F. Parker, Jr., has been made
a special attorney general to take
charge of litigation relating to Indian

of the Carnegie library, where the flag
was made. A large number of the
Betsy Rosses will be present to take
part in the ceremonies, and a picture
will be taken of them with the flag
in their midst.
Reasonable Doubt Defined.—Thos.
Gibbons, serving a life sentence for
the murder of T. C. Renfro near Ana-
darko In July, 1905, has been granted
a new trial by the supreme court on
account of the Instructions of the
lower court on the question of "rea-
sonable doubt," in which it was de-
iined as "a doubt for which you can
give a reason." The killing of Ren-
fro grew out of a school district row
To Oust Oklahoma Joints.—Fred
Caldwell, recently appointed state en-
forcement attorney by Governor Has-
kell, will Btart his crusade againBt

Damage to Crops Not General.—
According to the advices received by
the state agricultural board from
scattered parts of the state, the sup-
posed crop damage by excessive rain
is not general as at first, reported.
The high wind has been felt In wide-
ly separated portions and has been
Df inestimable benefit to the farmers,
drying the ground so as to permit
planting. Only in the sections where
'.he flood actually washed the crop?
out of the ground is the damage
Not Given Fair Trial.—Lewis Bru

February, 1906, at Okmulgee, has

Hail Devastates 5,000 Acres.—The
heaviest hall storm ever witnessed
in the section of Hobart destroyed
5,000 acres of growing crops. Hugo
chunks of Jagged ice as large as a
man's fist fell, perforating roofs in
some sections of the city, like a can
nonade. Over 200 houses in Hobart
alone suffered damage.
May Employ a Woman.—In reply
to an inquiry from Judge W. N. Lit-
tlejohn of Sallsaw, who was a mem-
ber of the constitutional convention,
Assistant Attorney General Spilman

to prevent the appointment of women

small tornado which visited Wood-

United States geological survey will

Just soulh of Norman fifty odd miles.
C. W. Hays, a member of the survey,
and Joseph A. Taft, who segregated
the coal, oil and gas fields of the
state a few years ago, will supervise
the entire trip. Chester A. Reeds, of
the university, has been engaged to
do some preliminary woric before the
party reaches there. The party will
study the mountains from many
standpoints, more for scientific than
economical purposes. It is intended
to bring substantial evidence to prov-i
the theory which holds that this part
of the continent was at one time com-
pletely' under water, since the great
flood and that, it was built up by
forces, known in scientific terms as
dlastophlsm, but by the common
forces of erosion It was torn away and
where hird rocks occurred there re-
mained a hill, and so on until tho
Arbuckles, the Wichitas, Ozarks.
Ouichitas and all other hills wen?
made. This is the theory that the
geologists wish to prove. Professor
Charles N. Gould, of the geology de
partment of the state university, will
not take an active part In the ex
ploratlon, although he will keep Id
touch with the work as it is done.

"I have been treated by doctors for
twenty-five years for a bad case of
eczema on my leg. They did thqlr best,
but failed to cure it. My doctor had
advised me to have aiy leg cut off. At
this time my leg wire peeled from the
knee, my foot was like a piece of raw
flesh, and I had to walk on crutches.
I bought a set of Cuticura Remedies.
After the first two treatments the
swelling went down, and in two
months my leg was cured and the new
skin came on. The doctor was sur-

The extraordinary popularity of fine
white goods this summer makes the
choice of Starch a matter of great im-
portance. Defiance Starch, being free
from all injurious chemicals, is the
only one which is safe to use on fine
fabrics. Its great strength as a stiffen-
er makes half the usual quantity of
Starch nocessary, with the result of
perfect finish, equal to that when the
goods were new.
