—Bordering on the miraculous is the
case of Mrs. Benj. Wilson, of this

Sugar Diabetes. She was sick four
years and doctored with two doctors,
but received no benefit. She had so
much pain ail over her that she could
not rest day or night. The doctors
said that she could not live.
"Then an advertisement led me to
try Dodd's Kidney Pills and they
helped her right from the first. Five
boxes of them cured her. Dodd's Kid-

us and we recommend them to all suf-

COMES A TIMC
When Coffee Shows What It Has Been
"Of late years coffee has disagreed
with me," writes a matron from Rome,
N. Y.; "it's lightest punishment was to
make me 'logy' and dizzy, and it
seemed to thicken up my blood.
"The heaviest was when it upset my
stomach completely, destroying my ap-
petite and making me nervous and Irri-
table, and sent me to my bed. After
one of these attacks, in which I nearly
'ost my life, I concluded to quit and
try Postum Food Coffee.
"It went right to the spot: I found
it not only a most palatable and re-
freshing beverage, but a food as well.
"All my ailments, the 'loginess' and
dizziness, the unsatisfactory condition
of my blood, my nervousness and irri-
tability disappeared in short order and
my sorely afflicted stomach began
quickly to reco*?r. I began to rebuild

KATY LAND GRANT
Judge Raymond Has an Important
Case Under Consideration
MUSKOGEE: Judge Raymond
has now under consideration the fa-
mous "Katy" land grant case, which
came up on a demurrer, and he is ex-
pected to render his decision within a
few days. It is thought the recent
hearing on the demurrer will be the
last one given the case in this court,
as it is probable that the matter will
be appealed to a higher tribunal, no
matter in Whose favor the decision
may be. This will be done in order
to obtain a final determination of the
points involved as soon as possible.
The case involves the "Katy's"
claim to alternate sections of land for
ten miles along its right of way
through Indian Territory. The con-
tention of the attorneys for the rail-
way company is based upon an old
land grant at the time the road was
built. The test case is one brought
by the railway company against
James Bullett, who took his allotment
on one of the sections claimed by the
railway people. His title to the land
Is now being contested. The govern-
ment is the real defendant in the
case, and the United States district
attorney, Mr. Mellette, is conducting
Altogether there are very nearly
two milion acres of land, the title to
which hinges upon the point involved
In this suit. As the land is estimated
to be worth an acre, the financial
interests involved in the suit are
something like four million dollars.

TO OUST OIL CONCERNS
Missouri Is Attemptnig to Prohibit
Companies From Doing Business
KANSAS CITY. MO.: The hear-
ing in the suit to oust the Standard
Oil company, the Republic Oil com-
pany and the Waters-Pierce Oil com-
pany from Missouri on the ground
that they are really one and the same
concern, and that they are in a com-
bine, is being held here.
Articles of association, showing the
ownership of the Waters-Pierce Oil
company stock by the Standard Oil
trust were admitted by R. A. Anthony,
special commissioner, after strong op-
position on the part of attorneys fof1
the oil company. With the articles
was also admitted an affidavit signed
by E. P. Pratt, filed with the secretary
of state of Missouri, showing that the
Standard Oil company succeeded to
the property and business of the Con-
solidated Tank Line company in 1892
The interesting feature of the hear-
ing was the testimony of Mr. Pratt,
former agent for the Standard Oil
company in Kansas City, that he
learned what the competing oil com-
panies were doing by having "ar-
rangements" with clerks in railroad
freight offices, so that he knew the
shippers and consignees, aud at once
put salesmen for the Standard com-
pany on the track of the business.
Cattlemen Must Soon Leave the Big
LAWTON: S. J. Silkot, agent of
the Kiowa-Comanche Indians, togeth-
er with a government inspector, has
entered the 480,000-acre Indian pas-
ture reservation of Comanche county
for the purpose of viewing and in-
specting the improvements placed
upon these lands by the cattlemen
who have them leased for grazing
purposes. These improvements con-
sist of wire fences, lots, houses and
barns, and are valued at more than
$10,000. The leases provide that a'
expiration all improvements shall be-
come the property of the Indians.
The leases expired July 1, and the
cattlemen are preparing to vacate.
While there has been no intimation
that any of the lessees will attempt
to violate that provision which gives
the improvements to rtie Indians, yet
the secretary of the interior deems it
a matter of business that an inven-
tory of the property be taken. Agent
Randelett Is receiving inquiries from
all sections of the country relative to
terms of leases for agricultural pur-
poses, and the opening of this reser-
vation promises to be the big event
in the history of the southwest.

I iers' checks, $60,764.38.
In his report Mr. Cooper shows
there are ninety-four banks operating
in Oklahoma, with $5,000 capital stock
| each; 109 with $10,000 each; 21 with
$15,000 each; 11 with $25,000 each; 4
with $20,000 each; 3 with $6,000 each;
2 with $7,500 each: 2 with $8,000 each;
2 with $12,000 each: 2 with $12,500
each; 2 with $50,000 each; there are
five other banks, each with a capital
j stock as follows: $.">,500, $7,000, $10,-
200, $10,500 and $30,000. The aver-
age capital stock employed is $9,865.
During the fiscal year there have
been 225 banks examined, sixty-eight
during the last half of 1904 and 157
I during the first half of 1905. The
increased activity in examination is
due to the fact that the department
has at its disposal for the year 1905
a larger fund to defray the expenses
of examination than it has previously
had. The recent legislature was the
first to fully recognize the importance
of this department.
That the department is a money-
making concern for the territory is
shown by the fact that during the
j year Mr. Cooper turned into the terri-
ritorial treasury the sum of $3,525,
being the fees collected from examin-
ing banks during that period.
Mr. Cooper says that the conditon
of the banks, generally speaking, is
quite satisfactory at this time. There
have not been so many organizations
perfected during the period covered
by the report as during the two years
prior to June 30, 1904. In a number
of instances where there were too
many banks in one town, there have
been some consolidations, which had
the effect of increasing the strength
of the banks without diminishing the
banking power of the community.
"The banking field is well covered
in Oklahoma," said Mr. Cooper, "and
so far as I know there is no demand
for more banks at this time. I be-
lieve that our banks are managed
with as much ability as will be found
in the conduct of the banking busi-
ness in other jurisdictions. Our bank-
ing laws compare favorably with
those of other states, so far as those
provisions which are intended to pro-
tect hte interests of the public are

Babyhood of Alfonso
W*en King Alfonso XIII, was a
baby he presided for the first time at
the opening of the cortes. For a
while he sat on his nurse's knee, and
shook his head at the assercbly. Par-
liamentary institutions bored him,
and at last he lifted his voice and
screanred. An eyewitness declares
that no member of the cortes shared
the opinion of Talleyrand, who said
that he loved babies only when they
cried, because somebody was sure
to take them away. Besides, it would
have been unconstitutional to order
the King of Spain out of his own
parliament. In this crisis the gagacity
jf his mother relieved the anxiety of
the statesmen. She took the infant
sovereign in her arms, and* he ac-
quiesed in the subsequent proceed-
ings. The hand that rocks the cradle
rules the world.

THE TEACHER'S FOE
A LIFE ALWAYS THREATENED BY
One Who Broke Down from Sli Years of
Overwork Tells How She Escaped
Misery of Enforced Idleness.
" I liad beeu teaching in the city
schools steadily for six years,"said Miss
James, whose recent return to the work
from which she was driven by nervous
collapse has attracted attention. "They
were greatly overcrowded, especially in
the primary department of which I had
charge, aud I had beeu doing the work
of two teachers. The strain was too
much for my nerves and two years ago
the crisis came.
" I was prostrated mentally and phy-
sically, sent in my resignation and never
expected to be able to resume work. It
seemed to me then that I was the most
miserable woman on earth. I was tor-
tured by nervous headaches, worn out by
inability to sleep, and had so little
blood that I was as white as chalk.
"After my active life, it was hard to
bear idleness, and terribly discouraging
to keep paying out the savings of years
for medicines which did me no good."
"How did you get backyour health ?"
"A bare chance and a lot of faith led
me to a cure. After I had suffered for
many months, and when I was ou the
very verge of despair, I happened to read
an account of some cures effected by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The state-
ments were so convincing that I some*
how felt assured that these pills would
help me. Most people, I think, buy only
one box for a trial, but I purchased six
boxes at onoe, and when I had used
them up, I was indeed well and had no
need of more medicine.
"Dr.Williams' Piuk Pills enriched my
thin blood, gave me back my sleep, re-
stored my appetite, gave me strength to
walk long distances without fatigue, in
fact freed me from all my numerous ail-
ments. I have already taught for several
months, aud I cannot say enongh in
praise of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
Miss Margaret M. James is now liviug
at No. 133 Clay street, Davron, Ohio.
Many of her fellow teachers have also
used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and are
euthnsiastic about their merits. Sound
digestion, strength, ambition, and cheer-
ful spirits quickly follow their use. They
