First Bank of Hoffman, I. T., was
blown to atoms, and the interior <?f

tired several shots to intimidate the

A NEW INDUSTRY.
Alcohol to Succeed Oil—A Blow at
Washington, June 6.—A new in-
dustry—one involving millions of dol-
lars—is about to spring into life.
The fruits of the earth—corn, po-
tatoes, beets, grain, etc.—arc soon to
be converted, in hundreds of distil-
leries, into alcohol for use in the in-
dustrial arts, for fuel, heat and light
Every state in the union will have
its part in this new enterprise. All
this will result from the passage ot
the free alcohol bill.
To the alchemy or commercial
chemistry all starch is sugar, and su-
gar is alcohol. Nothing is easier 01
cheaper than the making of alcohol
But hitherto the government has
practically forbidden the manufac-
tune of this product except for intox-
icating beverages. Only for such pur-
poses could alcohol be used, and the
tax was $2.10 a gallon. Wood alco-
hol was excepted because it is a rank
Now congress has passed a law
which amounts to a reversal^ of this
embargo on alcohol. Beginning Jan-
uary, 1907, practically anybody who
wants to make alcohol can do so.
Already hundreds of capitalists are
eagerly hastening to enter this new
field of commercialism actively. From
every part of the country inquiries
for the latest details as to the law
are coming in.
In every community distilleries will
be started and many of these distil-
leries will also have a starch manu-
facturing annex. The two industries
gc> hand in hand. Part of the potato
or beet which does not become alco
hoi will becomc starch.
Although the new ,aw vvi" not K°

Verkes, of the internal revenue de
partment. has sta.ted already to work
out the system of regulation which
ill govern the operation of the dis
'or Henryetta, I. T., over the M- O.
& G. railway. At a point a few miles
from Henryetta, they were discovered
by a posse which had been sent out
from Hoffman, and they abandoned
the hand car, taking to the woods.
Here tlic posse lost the trail. All the
valuable papers secured from the
bank, including a number of notes and
chattel mortgages, were found be-
side the track at the point where the
robbers left the hand car.
It is believed that the cracksmen
are* the same who have robbed a num-
ber of banks and postoftices in Indian
Territory in the last few months. A
determined effort is being made to
capture them. Hoffman is a new town

miles northeast of Henryetta and the
bank robbed is only about six months

Captain Bishop Acquitted.
There was serious suspicion for a
while that the Standard Oil influence
might cripple the bill, and one or two
amendments which the senate tack;d
on were looked upon with great sus
picion. But Commissioner \ erkes
says the law will operate to permit
the greatest freedom at the estab
lishment of plants, large or small.
"There will be no expense wha\
ever to the manufacturer either for
licensing the distillery, bonding the
warehouse, or paying 'or the super
vision or the inspection,' declared

Paderewski could not understand Eng-

Coffee Knifed an Old Soldier.
An old soldier, released from cof-
fee at 72, recovered his health and tells
about it as follows:
"I stuck to coffee for years, although
it kuifed me again and again.
"About eight years ago (as a result
of coffee drinking which congested my
liver), 1 was taken with a very severe
attack of malarial fever.
"I would apparently recover and
start about my usual work only to suf-
fer a relapse. After this had been
repeated several times during the year
I was agsiiu taken violently ill.
"The Doctor said he had carefully
studied my case, and it was either 'quit
cof e or die,' advising me to take Pos-
tum in its place. 1 had always thought
coffee one eif my nearest friends, and
especially when sick, and I was very
much taken back by the Doctor's deci-
sion, for 1 hadn't suspected the coffee
I drank could possibly cause my trou-
1 thought It over for a few minutes,
and finally told the Doctor I would
make the change. Posium was pro-
cured for me the same day and made
according to directions; well, I liked
j it and stuck to It, and since then I
| have been a new man. The change in
health began in a few days and sur-
prised me, and now. although I am
seventy-two years of age, I do lots of
hard work, and tor the past month
have been teaming, driving sixteen
miles a day besides loading and un-
loading the wagon. That's what Pos-
tum in the place of coffee has done
for me. I now like the Postum as well
as I did coffee.
"I have known people who did not
care for Postum at first, but after hav-
ing learned to make it properly accord-
ing to directions they have come to
like it as well as coffee. I never miss
a chance to praise It." Name given
by Postum Caj., Battle Creek, Mich.
Look for the little book, "The P.oai
to Wellvllle," in pkgs.
