The house has passed finally a bill
by Ross which makes It a felony to
eell intoxicating liquors to a minor, a
person of unsound mind or to a hab-
itual drunkard. The penalty is placed
at from one to five years in the pen-
Among the bills passed finally by
the senate are: By Roddle, prescrib-
ing an insurance code; by Eggerman,
providing a reward of $50 for the ar-
rest and conviction of horse thieves,
by Cunningham, authorizing building
and loan associations to increase their
capital; by Wallace, reimbursing the
etate treasurer for bond expense.
Representat ? Wortman has intro-
duced a bill tor "a safe and sane
Fourth of July." It prohibits the sale
or use of toy pistols, dynamite car-
tridges, blank cartridges or fire crack-
ers more than five inches long. Viola-
tions are made a misdemeanor, the
punishment being $50 fine or thirtr
days in jail.
Another bill to create a school for
the blind has cropped up In the sen
ate. This time it was introduced by
Senator Russell and provides that the
institution be located at Fort Gibson.
The bill is complete in every detail, as
those which have preceded It, and
will, like others, be considered by the
Blaine county is divided into two
county court districts by a bill, intro-
duced by Senator Brownlee, court to
be held at Watonga and Geary. All
criminal cases where the defendants
are in jail are to be tried at Watonga.
If they are out on bond they shall be
tried in the district where the defend-
ant resides. Another bill by Brownlee
repeals the oil inspection law.
A bill by Senator Billups provides
for exemption from attachment or
seizure of the personal earnings of the
debtor and the personal earnings of
his minor children. Whenever wages
are garnished and the order is later
set aside, the party bringing the garn-
ishment suit is liable to nominal dam-
ages up to $100, as such actual dam-
ages may be deemed proper.
A bill which bears the name of Sen-
ator Stewart has been introduced,
which is Intended to regulate the hold-
ing of elections by counties, cities,
towns, township and school districts
and to authorize the same to become
Indebted to an amount not exceeding
in any year the Income and revenue
provided for such year. The bill is
Introduced for the purpose of making
',t possible to equip school and other
improvements which are needed In
many parts of the state.
Senator Denton has Introduced a
bill which provides that it shall be the
duty of district courts to appoint an
attorney to represent the defendant in
divorce suits where the defendant Is
represented by council. The bill is In-
tended to do away, in a large meas-
ure, with the commonly called rail-
roaded divorces which are contended to
have become rather numerous in the
r state since statehood. Gi.her
things there is provided a severe pen-
• alty for remarriage within the time
prohibited by court decree, and which
is extended from two to five years in
the state prison.
In the senate the Roddle banking
bill has been recommended for pas-
sage—in committee of the whole after
an amendment had been adopted to
the section requiring state banks to
carry all reserves carried within the
state in banks secured by the guaran-
tee law so as to allow them to carry
an amount equal to or not more than
10 per cent of their capital stock in
secured banks. This is the same pro-
vision as is found in the national

senate committee on hospitals and

When the Putnam road bill came up
as a special order a motion was adopt-
rd to name a committee of five to con-
sult with the senate committee and
bring in a bill that would'likely pass
both houses, the belief being that such
a procedure would facilitate the pas-
sage of good roads legislation. Speak-

But Cured After Doctors Said There
Was No Hope.
Sylvanus O. Verrill, Milford, Me.,
says; "Five years ago a bad injury
paralyzed me and
affected my kid-
neys. My back hurt
me terribly, and
the urine was bad-
ly disordered. Doc-
tors said my right
kidney was practi-
cally dead. They
said I could never
walk again. I read
of Doan's Kidney Pills and began us-
ing them. One box made me stronger
and freer from pain. I kept on using
them and in three months was able to
get out on crutches, and the kidneys
were acting better. I improved rap-
idly, discarded the crutches and to
the wonder of my friends was soon

CHILD HAD SIXTY BOILS,
And Suffered Annually with a Red
Scald-Like Humor on Her Head.
Troubles Cured by Cuticura.
"When my little Vivian was about
six months old her head broke out in
boils. She had about sixty in all and
I used Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment which cured her entirely.
Some time later a humor broke oct be-
hind her ears and spread up on to
her head until it was nearly half cov-
ered. The humor looked like a scald,
very red with a sticky, clear fluid com-
ing from it. This occurred every
spring. I always used Cuticura Soap
and Ointment which never failed to
heal it up. The last time it broke
out it became so bad that I was dis-
couraged. But I continued the use of
Cuticura Soap, Ointment and Resol-
vent until she was well and has never
been troubled in the last two years.

Original Wedding Cake.
It is said to be a curious fact that
the wedding cake, that elaborate, in-
digestible compound so indispensable
at the modern marriage ceremony, is
the direct descendant of a cake made
of water, flour and salt, of which, at
the Roman high-class weddings, the
married couple ana the witnesses par-
took at the time of the signing of

"Wheatwyn, Sask., Nov. 6th, 1908.
"To the Commissioner of Immigra-
tion, Winnipeg, Manitoba—Dear Sir:
I, in company with my brother and
other relations, arrived in this coun-
try in the spring of 1893. At the time
we got off the train at Wolseley, Sask.,
we had only a few dollars, not enough
to start farming on our own account,
go we were compelled to work out for
a considerable time in order to make
sufficient money to enable us- to es-
tablish ourselves. When we thought
we had enough money to start with, I
and my brother took up one quarter-
section (160 acres) land each In the
Loon Creek district. In 1900 we moved
on our homesteads with one team of
horses and one walking plow. While
I was engaged with the work in the
field, my brother built a shack and
barn of logs, which we have hauled
during the time we were not able to
work in the field. We were certainly
working very hard, but I am glad to
say that we made our fortune in this
country. To-day we do not need to
work so hard as we used to, as we
have three men hired steady for
whom we pay $30.00 to $40.00 a month,
besides board and lodging during the
summer time! I am also glad to tell
you that to-day we are owners of a
section and three-quarters of the best
land, with first class buildings thereon,
besides having all the necessary ma-
chinery. We always do our own
threshing, for we have a 22 horse-
power threshing outfit.
"Our success in farming In this
country also enabled us to get rid of a
number of horses of less value, and
instead we bought 10 pure-bred mves,
representing a value in the neighbor-
hood of $5,000.
"Regarding raising grain, which is
the main factor in our district, I am
proud to say that we have always
had good success. We have raised
wheat as high as 35 bushels to the
acre; and this year, although we suf-
fered from lack of sufficient rain, our
wheat went 27 bushels to the acre,
and we kad 900 acres in crop. We
have broken this year about 100 acres
new land, and by next year we will
have about 1,110 acres in crop. For
one carload of wheat which we have
shipped a few weeks ago we got a
price of 97 cents per bushel, and it
graded as No. 2 Northern, although we
have a quantity of wheat which will
surely go as No. 1 Northern. During
the six years we have been farming
for ourselves we have never had one
frost around here, so that we always
had a good crop.
"I, for myself, feel compelled to say
that our Great West is the land where
a person who is willing to work and
trun his hands to anything, can make
a fortune, and a comfortable living.
Our country is a thoroughly free coun-
try, and we have a good Government;
and, as long as we have good crops,
and a good Government, we are satis-
fied, and I think that io all we want.
"Yours very truly,
