assistants, began rounding up cows
beginning in th; neighborhood ot
Dustin, moving through S i<lham,
and tlienc eto Eufaula. When he
reached this place more than 150
cow-, were in the herd. There was
complaint fr,,111 owners, many of
whom asserUd that the cows were
taken from the immediate neighbor-
hood of their homes. All cattle not
taken from thc custody of the offic-
ers under bond will be driven acros?

to be captured 111 turn by the officers

Since the Curtis act passed th.-re
have been practically no sales. There
lias not been a piece of land lisfd

are only seven tracts posted and
these are by Indians of mixed blood.
How the inherited land shall be
sold is a question that is prominent-
ly before citizen and snec'dator a,:!--e

"Be Pleasant Every Morning Until
Ten O'clock; the Rest of the Day
Will Take Care of Itself."
This is one of the best little ser-
mons we know. Havi you ever
stopped to think that the morning
is the time when your temper is usu-
ally ruffled, and have you ever
stopped to think that the cause of
had temper in the mornin; is nearly
always because your stomach has not
been working properly during the
night? It has contained a lot of indi-
gestible substances that form gas
and makes you have dreams, it
breaks up your rest and you wake up
In the morning tired, Instead of re-
freshed, as nature Intended you
Our grand sires required no ad-
monition to "Be pleasant every morn-
ing utrtil 10 o'clock; the rest of the
day will take care of itself." for they
digested their food and woke up full
of life and energy ready for the day's
duties, and this was because they
lived on simple foods instead of high-
ly seasoned palatable concoctions,
which contain no nourishment. Na-
ture gave us milk, wheat and eggs,
and on these foods a person can
live indefinitely, but if the milk is
skimmed, and if tlie outside of the
wheat is taken off the kernel, and If
the lime, the salt, and the iron, which
is in the outer part of the wheat
berry, if these are all removed, you
have simply starch alone; the starch
goes into the stomach and becomes
Do you know that a person would
starve to death on plain white bread
and water? Do you know that ha
could live Indefinitely on whole wheat
bread or on whole wheat food ana
water? These interesting facts are
all set forth in a book called "Back
to Nature," which tells about proper
living and gives recipes for meals of
the simple kind—the kind that makes
you strong and well; the kind that
makes you "Pleasant every morning
until 10 o'clock." This hook is pub-
lished at a great expense, but it is
given free to every reader of this
paper. It is an advertnement of
"EGGO-SEE," the great food—which
Is made from whole wheat, which is
baked and predigested and is all
ready to serve from the package you
buy at your grocers. You get more
life and energy from a 10-cent pack-
age of EGU-O-SEE than you will get
from a thousand dollars' worth of
white bread. This is no idle claim.
It is a scientific fact. We want to
tell about this simple food questioh,

Doctor Was Fooled by His Own Case
for a Time.
It's easy to understand how ordi-
nary people get fooled by coffee when
doctors themselves sometimes forget
A physician speaks of bis own ex-
I had used coffee for years and
really did not exactly believe it was
injuring me although I had palpita-
tion of the heart every day.
"Finally one day a severe and al-
most fatal attack of heart trouble
frightened me and I gave up both
tea and coffee, using Postum instead
and since that time I have had ab-
solutely no heart palpitation except
on one or two occasions when I tried
a small quantity of coffee which
causcd severe irritation and proved
to me I must tet it alone.
"When we began using Postum it
seemed weak—that was because wo
did not make it according to direc-
tions—but now we put a little bit of
butter in the pot when boiling and
allow the Postum to boil full 15 min-
utes which gives it the proper rich
flavor and the deep brown color.
"I have advised a great many of
my friends and patients to leave off
coffee and drink Postum. In fact I
daily give this advice." Name given
by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
Many thousands of physicians use
Postum in place of tea and coffee in
their own homes and prescribe it to
patients. "There's a reason."
