Thrice a Week World stands alone
In lt3 class. Other papers havo imi-
tated Its forms but not its success.
This is because It tells all the news
all the time and tells it Impartially.
Whother that nows bo political or
atherwise. It Is in fact almost a
daily at the price of a weekly and
you cannot afford to bo without it
Republican and Democrat alike can
read the Thrlco a Week World with
absolute confidence In Its truth.
In addition to news it publishes
first class serial atones and other
features suited to the home and fl re-
side. The Thrlco a Week World's regular
subscription price is only 11.00 per
year and this pays for 156 papers.

Successful Homeseekers Excursions.
In nn interview yesterday with a
leading official of the Santa Fe pass-
enger department he stateu that the
late winter and early spring home-
seekers' excursions to the Southwest
had been remarkably well patronized.
Hundreds of porsons took advantaga
of tho low rates. While some merely
went for a visit among friends many
were so dolighted with tho country
that they will soon return to settle on
a farm engage in mercantile business
run a stock ranch or pick out a loca-
tion for their boys.
Tho greatest rush was to Oklaho-
ma; but KauBaa received a largo;
share of travel and a goodly number
were attracted by the rich mines aha
Irrigated lands of Colorado New Mex-
ico Arizona and Calforma. Tho
Pecos Arcsas and San Joaquin val-
leys attracted great interest and sev-
eral large colonies will settle there.
Tho Santa e freight department re-
ports an unusually neavy traffic In
Similar excursions will be run over
the Santa Fo tho first and third Tubs-
day ot May. The round trip rate will
bo one fare plus $2. It is expected
that similar rates will continue for
the summer months.

AT ENID CONVENTION.
On this annlvarsary or tho opening
of the territory the Democracy cf Ok-
lahoma takes pleaseure In recording
Us genuine pride In the marvelous de-
velopment and splendid achievement
which has characterized tho first thir-
teen years of tho history of tho great-
est territory this nation has ever creat-
ed. In this short period tho territory
has been transformed from the homo
of tho cow and tho coyote into tho free
homo of a half million sturdy Intelli-
gent and progressive American citi-
zens owning three hundred million
dollars worth of available assets. Sure-
ly such a peoplo are entitled to Amer-
ican heritage of solf governnonL And
we here and now declare our firm con-
lcj0n that wo are entitled to the
rlghts prlvilogos and responsibilities
of American statehood.
Nor arc we unmindful of our breth-
ren of tho Indian territory. Appre-
ciating their splendid capacity and
wonderful resources and achieve-
ments we desire union with them in
order that Jointly wo may build up
t.o greatest of the wostorn slatos. Wo
therefore favor the admission into
tho federal union of Oklahoma and
tho Indian torrltory a3 a single state-
Aud In view ot tho fact that Oklahoma
has a splendid land endowmont for
its schools we favor an adequate pro-
vision for the people of the Indian
territory either in lands or other re-
sources so that both territories may
be placed upon terms of equality In
the maintenance and support of their
Resolved Tnat we are unalterably
opposed to any encroachment upon
the magnificent endowment of our pub-
lic schools and colleges. And we rec-
ommend that tho final disposition of
the school and other lands of the ter-
ritory be left to tho people of the sov-
ereign state in constitutional conven
Resolved That we condemn the
present school land board of tho terri-
tory for Its harsh uijust and oppres-
sive adminlstraton ot tne school land
office and we pledge our party to pass
a fair and equitable school land law
just alike to the lessees and to the
peoplo of the territory.
We favor the early enactment of a
law by the federal congress granting
freo homes to the residents of the new
country and wo denounce the notion
of Delogafe Flynn In oxoludlng that
country from tho recent free homes
We favor Immediate statehood
along tho lines laid down in this plat-
form in ordor that we may escape the
curse of carpet-bag government and In
"" that the people may substitute
i'i& economy and efficiency for
extravagance dishonesty and spolia-
tion of the public under which the
territory has been robbed and the un-
fortunate Insane mistreated In order
to benefit a tow favored Republican
grafters and under which the peoplo
of the new country have been burden-
ed with extravagance and extortion
in the administration of their local
Wo condomn the unpatriotic and un-
just attempt ot Delogate Flynn to de-
prlvo the new counties of Caddo Co-
manche and Kiowa from participation
In tho constitutional convention' "of
Oklahoma in the event of its admis
sion to statehood.
Wo favor an orgaalzed county gov-
ernment for tho peoplo ef the Osage
We endorse tho separate school law
enacted by the last legislative as-
8sembly In so far as it covers the
ground and upon the creation of a
new state wo demand that tho people
thereof shall be permitted to devise
and fashion their own educational
system without federal interference;
and although we favor equal educa
tional privileges and facilities for
white and colored children we are
opposed to mixed schools.
We demand a just and equitable leg-
islative apportionment measure at the
hands of the present congress to the
end that the thousands of voters in
the western and southwestern coun-
ties ot tho territory may have proper
and adequate representation in tit
coming legislative session.
The Democratic party pledges irteU
to promote in every way the applied
tion of the system of primary election
tor the nomination ot candidates and
the settling ot party principle and we
avor the passage ot a suitable prim
ary election law tor the legal introduc
tion ot such a system Into this terrl
Believing as we do that the legiti-
mate aim of government is to pro-
mote the greatest good of the people
we favor public ownership ot muol-
We renew our alleglanco to the
principles of the Democratic party as
enunciated In Its national platform
adopted at Kansas City In 1900.

Yc years. My blood became
very poor and at times my

diseased. After eating I
would sit in a chair and put
my feet on somethidg to keep

times would take oil myshoes
