Great Deeert Created in Wagon.
El Reno.—Few people since the
building of transcontinental railroads
across the. Great American desert,
have crossed It In wagons. For the
fun of the thing, T. 11. Ellis and his
wife nearly crossed the desert In an
overland trip from Salt Lake City to
El Reno. They left Salt Lake City
June 2 and reached El Reno August
28, making the trip without accident
or very great privation. Ellis Is an
employe of the Rock iBland here.
"Coming across the desert the sun
literally burned us,” said Mrs. Ellis in
relating her experiences. "I never
expect to again experience such beat.
Our wagon was covered and that help-
ed eome, but for several days the
horses could not travel and we were
compelled to seek shelter In section
houses along the way. The trail
across the desert follows the railroad
and we got water at section houses.
Otherwise we never could have made
Enid l« Growing.
Enid.—The Incoming passenger
traffic at the Enid depots Is larger In
comparison with the population than
any other city along the Santa Fe
railway system, according to F. E.
Clark, the division passenger agent of
the company, who was In the city one
day recently. Mr. Clark said that the
showing made by the ticket sales to
Enid was remarkable. "It lx not for a
day or so, or certain weeks," said Mr.
Clark, "but It Is a continuous record."
No Bondo; Pay Taxot Anyway.
El Reno.—A proposition confronts
the taxpayers of El Reno since the
bonds voted for a city hall have been
declared Illegal and another election
declared necessary. The levy of 1V4
mills for the bonds has been certified
to the county clerk and were entered
on the tax rolls from which the county
treasurer Is making tax collections.
Although there are no bonds, under
the decision of the city attorney the
property owners will have to pay this
assessment. There seems to be no
way to have the tax rolls corrected.
Watar Bonds Vela.
Cushing.—The people of Cushing
are to have a chanoe to vole on the
question of an Issuance of $25,000 for
bonds to build a waterworks. This Is
much needed liy the town, especially
for fire protection. ■

with a horrible death by falling four

RASH ALL OVER BOY’S BODY.
Awful, Crusted, Weeping Eczema on
Little Sufferer—A Score of Treat-
ments Prove Dismal Failures.
Cure Achieved by Cutlcura.
“My little boy had an awful rash all
over his body and the doctor said It
was eczema. It was terrible, and used
to water awfully. Any place the water
went it would form another sore and It
wojild become crusted. A score or
more physicians failed utterly and dis-
mally in their efforts to remove the
trouble. Then I was told to use the
Cutlcura Remedies. I got a cake of
Cutlcura Soap, a box of Cutlcura Oint-
ment and a bottle of Cutlcura Re-
solvent, and before we bad used half

The best food for those who work
with hand or brain la never high
The best example of this is found In
Quaker Oats. It stands at the top
among foods that supply nourishment
and vigor, without taxing the diges-
tion, and yet it Is the least expensive
food one can eat.
This great food value and low cost
make it an Ideal food for families who
want to get the greatest good from
what they eat. 8
Laborers, factory or farm hands, fed
plentifully on Quaker Oats will work
better and with less fatigue than if
fed on almost any other kind of food.
All of these facts were proved and
very interesting information about
human foods were gathered by Pro-
fessor Fisher of Yale University in
1908. You’ll find Quaker Oats in reg-
ular size packages, large size family
packages and hermetically sealed tin*.
H* Forgot Something.
"Is that all you have to say to me?"
she queried, looking off into space.
"Great heavens, girl" said he,
abashed, “what more can 1 Bay?
Haven't I told you that 1 worship the
very ground you walk on? Haven't
I offered you every lota of my worldly
possessions? Haven't I said that you
would never want for anything, that
your relatives could eome and stay as
long as they wished, that 1 would
work my fingers bare for you, and
that 1 would devote my entire exlst-
< nee to you?"
“Oh, yes, you said all thut,” she re-
I l!ed, wearily, "but—’’
"Hut what?" he asked, tremulously.
"You—you didn't say right out and
out 'I love you,' and that's what I
wanted to hear most of all.”
In process of time It was observed
that the multi-millionaire philanthrop-
ist had ceased giving costly library
buildings to towns nnd cities.
"Why is this, Mr. Canaggy?" the re-
porters asked him.
"Young men," he said, “what Is the
use of building great houses for li-
braries when all a man needs for an
education Is five feet of books?”
Whereat they marveled, but they
could not answer him.
The extraordinary popularity of fine

er makes half tho usual quantity of

perfect finish, equal to that when the
goods were new.

After The Grippe
M1 am much pleased, to be able to write and thank
you for what Cardui has done for me,” writes Mrs. Sarah

“Last February, I had the Grippe, which left me In
bad shape. Before that, I had been bothered with female
trouble, for ten years, and nothing seemed to cure it
“At last, I began to take Cardui. I have taken only
three bottles, but it has done me more good than all the
doctors or than any other medicine I ever took.”
The Woman!s Tonic
For the after-effects of any serious illness, like the
Grip, Cardui is the best tonic you can use.
It builds strength, steadies the nerves, improves the
appetite, regulates irregularities and helps bring back the
natural glow of health.
Cardui is your best friend, if you only knew IL
Think of the thousands of ladies whom Cardui has
helped! What could possibly prevent it from helping you?
Remember you cannot get the benefit of the Cardui
ingredients in any other medicine, for they are not for sale
