HI6H SHERIFFS OF THE
SOUTH HOW COHVINCED
Sheriff Mangum of Atlanta, Ga., Sheriff Anderson of
Houston, Tex., Sheriff Lewis of Marion, Ark. and
Sheriff Kelley of Odessa,Tex., Qome Out With Strong
Statements and Tell What Tanlac Has Done for Them.
To Revise School Courses.
What R. H. Wilson, state superin-
tendent of schools, declared the most
important step in Oklahoma common
school work in recent years was taken
• hen a committee of seven was chosen
to revise the common school course
Modernity is the point which will
be stressed in the revision. Obsolete
Public Buildings May Be Delayed.
There" will be no opposition on the |
part of at least one member of th« j
state board of equalisation to th |
economy policy announced by Got- |
ernor Williams. E. B. Howard, state j
auditor has begun a searching investi- |
gation of the appropriations made by j
the last legislature. He will draft . j
recommendation soon to be board re-
garding the tax levy to be made.
Auditor Howard will recommend
among other things that the $1,700,000 i
for roads be suspended during war
time. Of this amount, $700,000 goes
to meet the federal road appropria-

FOUIt leading Sheriffs of the South—in widely separated states—have
recently given their unqualified indorsements to Tanlac. The word
of men whose records for honwety and unrightness has won and held for
them the highest county office in the gift of the people of their own com-
munities, cannot be doubted, for if there is any office that demands a
man of unimpeachable integrity, it is the office of Sheriff.
"Tanlac has certainly helped me and
I recommend it for the good It has
done In ray case," said Hon. C. W.
Mangum, ex-sheriff of Fulton County,
Georgia, who resides in Atlanta and
who has been one of the most popular
officials In the state, having served
three terms as sheriff. "I am seventy
years old," he continued, "and have
most always been a pretty healthy
man until here lately. I have been In
a nervous wornout, rundown condition.
Most always after eallng I would have
a full uncomfortable feeling which
would last several hours.
"After taking the second bottle of
Tanlac the fullness and all the dis-
agreeable symptoms disappeared and
my condition is now that of a well
man. Tanlac seemed to be Just what
I needed to put my system In shape
and It has toned me right up. Natural-
ly I would recommend It to my friends
and I know of fifteen or twenty fam-
ilies that are taking It now on icy
Arkansas Official Testifies.
Hon. Chas. I. Lewis, ex-sherlff of
Crittenden County, a merchant nnd u
large plantation owner of Marlon, Ar-
kansas, said: "I am convinced from
the benefits that my wife and myself
and many of our friends have received
from Tanlnc, that it Is without an
equal. Mrs. Lewis suffered for ten
years. She couldn't digest anything
and gas forming In her stomach caused
severe pains and shortness of breath.
We both started taking Tanlac at tho
same time and have had the most grati-
fying results. Mrs. Lewis can now eat
and enjoy her food for the first time
In many a day. She is not nervous
and her sleep Is sound and refresh-
ing and t*ie Is like a different woman.
"I suffered with biliousness nnd
malaria and the two bottles of Tanlac
have fixed me up In fine shape."
Bx-8herlff Anderson's Statement.
"Money couldn't buy the good Tan-'
lac has done me and I gladly recom-
mend It to others for what It has done
In my case," said Hon. Archie R. An-
derson, ex-sheriff of Harris County,
Texas, who was re-elected to this high
office seven times and served the peo-
ple of his country for fifteen years as
sheriff. Mr. Anderson was chief of
police of the city of Houston, where
he resides, for several years, and there
Is not a better known man In Harris
"I was continually belching tip un-
digested food," he continued, "and I
wquld bloat and swell up like I was
poisoned and suffered from neuralgic
pains of the worst sort and nothing re-
lieved me. I began to feel better after
taking the first bottle of Tanlac and
have Just started on my third and feel
like a different man already. 1 sleep
like a log now and can eat any and
everything I want without the slight-
est discomfort afterwards."
Texas 8herifPs Indorsement.
"I needed n general all around build-
ing up for the Inst seven months and
Taulac has done that very thing for
me," said Hon. S. A. Kelley, sheriff of
Ector County, Texas, who resides at
Odessa, Texas, and who Is one of the
most popular officials In that section of
the state. "I'm mighty glad now that
I took Tanlac, for I had been In a bad-
ly rundown condition for several
months. I had no appetite and didn't
enjoy what I did eat and at times I
suffered terribly with rheumatic pains.
My back ached all the time and my
liver was so sluggish and out of shnpe
that I had a dull headache continually.
"I have taken only two bottles, but
I feel like a different man already.
My appetite Is fine and what I eat
gives me nourishment and strength.
The rheumatism Is much better and
my liver Is In good condition. I am
relieved of the headaches and feel more
active and energetic than I have In

No Sunday In Her Week.
Little Helen Is nn ardent supporter
of Sunday school. She wouldn't miss
going under any circumstances. A few
Sundays ago, however, she was 111 and
the family council decided It would be
best not to let her know when Sun-
day came. This plan was followed,
but the next day the secret leaked out
and she exclaimed:
"Oh, mamma; you didn't put a Sun-
day In my week !"—Indianapolis News.
questionable practical value is to give
way to the practical subjects. The
aim sought is the connecting of school
work with the industries and environ-
ments of the state.
One of the features of the new-
course will be the placing of agricul-
tural and domestic science work on
the club plan. Close co-operation be-
tween the teacher and the county
farm agent is to be sought. For this
reason, one of the seven on the com-
mittor N> John E. Swaim, director of
club work of the A. and M. college.
The committee is expected to hove
the course ready for the final check-
ing up by July 15, and to have it
ready to be placed in the hands of
the teachers by September 1.
The committee consists of George
Wilson, professor of agriculture In the
A. and M. college; U. J. Griffith, high
school Inspector; L. B. Ray, professor
of rural education, Central State Nor-
mal; J. A. Whlteford. city superin-

feet the usual levy of one-lourth mill
required as the levy to be distributed J
among the various countries. This
will total about $3,250,000.
"1 am in hearty sympathy with th« j
governor's plea for economy," said j
Howard. "I would go even further j
than he suggested. The governor be-
lieves in making the levy and collect-
ing the money, depending upon the
departmental heads for the economy.
"I shall Insist so far as my one vote
goes, to keep the levy as low as pos-
sible and leave the money in the
pockets of the taxpayers.
"We are preaching conservation of
fcod and supplies. My policy in rais-
ing the money for the upkeep of the
state is to conserve in finance. And it
will do the people no good to take the
money and by economizing, pile up 3
big surplus. Leave as much of it at
home as possible."
Auditor Howard will recommend to
the board that none of the $500,000
in public building bonds be sold, ex-
cept possibly the $85,000 for the Nor-
man hospital for the insane, and
probably the $200,000 for the state
English, and Its Limitations.

"I hear that Mrs. Binford has given
half a block of ground for drilling."
"How nice," said the daughter from
Washington. "Do you know what com-
pany will drill in It?"
"No. Some young men, I he*d."
"Well, is it militia or home guaids?"
persisted the daughter.

Public Utilities/ Assessments Up.
Finishing the drastic increases in
tontative assessments of corporation
property for taxation purposes, the
state board of equalization disposed
of some fifty public utility companies
by tentatively increasing the assess-
ments from 10 to 500 per cent. The
companies will be heard May 18.
The Oklahoma Gas and Electric
Company, which supplies a number of
towns in the state, in addition to this
city, was given the most radical in-
crease. From the assessed valuation
in 1916 of $2,500,0000, it was Jumped
The statement of the Oklahoma Gas
and Electric Company on which the
increase was based was as follows:
Capital, $2,600,000; funded debt, $2,-
863,000; net income last year $485,-
370.18; expense for fixed properties,
$6,129,679; surplus, $65,486.
Other companies which were raised
materially were: Muskogee Gas and

Against Fly Poisons
Following li an extract from "Ihe

Supplement No. 29 to the Fubllo
Health Reports, April, 1016.
"Of other fly poisons mentloLeil,
mention should be made, merely for
a purpose of oondemnation, of those
oiimposed of arsenic. Fatal cases of
poisoulug of children through lUe
use of such oonipoun<ls are far too
frequent, and owing to the resem-
blance of arsenical poisoning to
summer diarrhea and cholera in-
fantum, It It believed that the casea
re|>orted do not, by any means, com-
prise the total. Arsenical fly-de-
siroying devices must be rated as
extremely dangerous, and should
never tie used, even If other meas-
ures are not at band."

ported by the press within the last
three years. Aa stated above this num-
ber Is but a fraction of the real number.

the attorney general will forward to

The Sixth legislature made an ap-
piopriation of $50,000 for the remod-
eling of Emergency, which would be-
come to the Oklahoma hospital part of
the state university school of medi-
cine. The money was to come from
the unsold public building bonds.
The amount of bonds unsold from

Appropriations from this
amount made by the Sixth legislature
for various state institutions is $845,-
How the hospital will fare depends
upon the manner of distributing the
appropriations. State Auditor Howard
thinks the money will be prorated.

this question have established the pre-
cedent of giving preference to appro-
priations rossed first.
