Analysis of Medicines Open to All.
“There is no public demand and
there is not the slightest public nec-
essity for a law compelling the publi-
cation of the formula of proprietary
medicines.*’ says the Committee oh
Legislation of the Proprietary Asso-
ciation. "Every Health Commissioner
and every Pure Food Commissioner
In the country, as well as every pri-
vate physician or chemist, if he
pleases, has the right to make an
analysis of any proprietary medicine
and to publish the result and to tell
the public what he thinks, and there
is nothing in the world to prevent
such action. But that is not what the
agitators for such legislation want
Their object is to destroy *j\e sale of
such remedies entirely."
A BA8E SLANDER REFUTED
Southerners “Fill ’Em Up” Because
Their Glasses Are 8mall
"You all up north here have an
idea that we all down south drink a
whole lot of whisk}', but we don't,"
remarked a Georgian in a Broadway
cafe the other day. “I’ll admit that
when I’m in New York I drink more
than I do in Atlanta, but that's be-
cause of the size of the glasses they
give you to drink from. With us the
glasses are about half the size of the
ones you get here, and we pour them
nearly full. From force of habit 1

MAKING RUBIES FOR A DIME
Perfect Gems Turned Out by Two
In a little dark basement at the cor-
ner of Fifth avenue and Jackson
street, two French chemists, with the
assistance of Dr. Horace Byers, pro-
fessor of chemistry at the state uni-
versity, are turning out rubies which
are pronounced as good as are de-
veloped in nature’s laboratory, and
at a price averaging ten cents each.
The experiments have been con
ducted for several weeks, and every
effort has been made to keep the
Some of the gems turned out have
been examined at the university, and
declared to be genuine.
The place of manufacture is fitted

Until a week ago the chemists
were able to produce a gem perfect
in every respect, except that it lacked
the color of the genuine. It was at
this point that Dr. Byers was called

my life, and used It regularly, three
times a day.
"A year or two ago I became sub-
ject to nervous neuralgia, attaoks of
nervous headache and general ner-
vous prostration which not only In-
capacitated me for doing my house-
work, but frequently made It neces-
sary for me to remain in a dark room
for two or three days at a time.
"I employed several good doctors,
one after the other, but none o| them
was able to give me permanent relief.

cause of my troubles and that I try

MONOPOLY INDICTMENTS GOOD
About Half the Counts Against Pack-
ing House Officials to Stand
CHICAGO: The hearing of argu-
ments on the demurrers to the indict-
ments returned by the federal grand
jury against five of the big packing
concerns and seventeen of their em-
ployees was closed Wednesday, and ‘.f
Judge Humphrey, before whom the
arguments have been made, retains
his present impression or the case,
one-half the number of the Indict-
ments charging the packers with con-
spiracy In restraint of trade will be
sustained and the remaining counts
overruled. When it was announced
that the case had been closed Judge

BURFORD MAY BE RETAINED
His Exoneration by the Attorney Gen-
eral May Mean His Reappointment
GUTHRIE: The concensus of opin-
ion is that the letter received by
Chief Justice John H Burfcrd from
Attorney General Moody means much
toward the reappointment of Burford,
whose present term expires within the
near future. Mr Moody says he has
received the report filed with him by
Assistant Attorney General Harr on
the investigation here involving the
judge to a certain extent, and he as-
sures Judge Burford that the Harr
report fully exonerates him.
This investigation was the result of
the arrest of Tom Neal, the brother-
in-law- of Judge Burford, on a warrant
charging him with being sho--t $20,060
in his accounts as court clerk under
Judge Burford. The investigation- was
made by experts from the department
of justice, prior to Neal's arrest. Neal
is out under heavy bond awaiting the
action of the grand jury, next month

General Baldwin Takes the Fort In
Sham Battle Maneuvers
LAWTON: At 6:15 o’clock Sunday
morning General Frank Baldwin of
Oklahoma City, in command of a bat-
tery of field artillery, two troops of
cavalry and a battalion of infantry,

five batteries of artillery and two
troops of cavalry in command of
Colonel William Howe of Key West
The attacking troops began their
advance from Anadarko Friday morn-
ing, and advanced to within two miles
of the north gate of Fort Sill reserva-
tion. Colonel Howe assembled his
men to the northwest and south of the
fort, thinking the enemy would enter
from that direction by the position
they had taken.
General Baldwin was successful in
making his attack from the east,
where it was least expected, and most

A nervous, irritable mother, often on
the verge of hysterics, is unfit to care
for children ; it ruins a child's disposi-
tion and reacts upon herself. The
trouble between children and their
mothers too often is due to the fact
that the mother has some female weak-
ness, and she is entirely nnflt to bear
the strain upon her nervea that govern-
ing children involves; it ia impossible
for her to do anything calmly.
