to harmonize difference of statehood
bill bore fruit today and the conferees

While Senator Morgan kept up his
opposition to the bill It was under
stood to mean that the house con
ferees would refuse to- agree to
the elimination of New Mexico and
Arizona but when Morgan yielded to
day it is taken to indicate an agree-
meent to admit Oklahoma and Indian
. Territory by the home conferees.

Neb. writes: "My wife had lung
trouble for over fifteen years- We
tried a number of doctors and spent
over a thousand dollars witlisut any
relief. She was very low and I lost
all hope whenn friend suggested try-
ing Foley's Honey and Tar which J
did; and thanks be to this great
remedy it saved her life. She is
stronger and enjoye betUr health ttian
she has known in ten years. We shall
never be without Foley's Honey and
Tar and would ask those afflicted to
try it." For Sale at Peoples Drug

Tills is a local organization for the

calls for help and Die union answers
all within their power. This year the
requests for aid have Iwen very numer-
ous. While it Is not a religlousorgan-

of true religion. It Is doubtful If any
church in Yinita has done an much
real good the past month as the Belief

A Night Alarm
Worse than an alarm of .fireat night
is the brassy cough of croup which
sounds like the cl Wren's death knell
and it means death unless something
is done quickly. Foley's Honey and
Tar never fails to trive Instant relief
and quickly cures the worst forms of
croup. Mrs P. L. Cordier of Mann-
ington Ky. writes: "My three year
oli girl had a severe case of croup;

got a bottle of Foley's Honey and Tar
the first die gave quick relief and
saved her life." Refuse sultltues.

Where there are so many canals there
Is more or less swamp ground. In China
this Is utilized for the raising of lotus
roots from which commercial arrowroot
is largely obtained says a writer. There
is no reason why much of the waste
swamp land in the southern portion of
the United States should not be used for
a similar purpose and the commercial
returns from a venture of this sort in
that part of the country ought to be sat-
isfactory. Where the canals of China
widen by reason of natural water ways
or for other reasons the expanse of wa-
ter not needed for actual navigation is
made use of in the raising of water nuts
of several varieties especially what are
known as water chestnuts. These nuts
are raised in immense quantities. They
are strictly speaking bulbs rather than
nuts. They are rich in arrowroot and
are prolific an acre of shallow water pro-
ducing far more than an acre of well cul-
tivated soil planted in ordinary grain or
similar crops. These nuts also could be
produced to advantage in the United
States where there Is land inundated for
the growing season to a depth which will
give ordinary water plants a chance to
thrive and which Is not capable of being
drained for the time being. The nuts or
bulbs are toothsome when roasted and
are wholesome but probably would be
more valuable in the United tates for
the manufactured products which can
be secured from them.
House Committee Asks Where

THEY KNEW WHAT IT MEANT
Animals Sought Cover When the
Auto-Tooter Was Heard in
When it was propoHed last fall to set
aside one of the public roads at Long
Island during part of a day as an auto
mobile race course there was loud objec-
tion from the country folk. The New
York Times has discovered one who was
entirely pleased with the outcome.
"What did you think of it?" a traveler
asked him a day or two later.
'The best thing for me that ever hap
pened!" was the emphatic reply.
'Yes siree! You see I have a balky
mule that draws my truck to market
every morning. Yesterday that mule
balked half way to town. I couldn't get
him to stir. While I was cogitating what
to do I saw a funny rubber thing in the
road. I picked it up and accidentally
squeezed it. U let out a terrible noise.
It was one of those auto tootera.that got
"Weil when that mule heard It behind
him hestarted go quirk I hardly had time
to grab the tailboard and he never let
up till he reached the ferry.
"I brought the thing home and showed
it to Mandy and she squeezed it and
squeezed it. Every chicken on the farm
ran for the coop at the first sound. Every
pig hid in the pm. the cow ran behind
the barn the cat got under the stove the
dog raced for Ills kennel and Mandy and
I spent the quietest night we've ever had.
Of all the labor-saving machines I ever
saw that is the best and the autos can
race up and down my road as often as
Tarns Bixby chairman of the Dawes
commission will appear before the
house committee on Indian affairs by
special invitation to enlighten the
committee on the use of the $250000
added to the bill by the Benate com-
mittee for completing the work of the
Dawes commission which goes out of
existence July 1.
Another amendment of the senate
committee provides for the payment
of 8180000 out of the proceeds of the
sale of Osage Indian lands in Kansas
to the estate of C. N. Vann and Wil-
liam P. Adair. This claim is described
as a steal by members of the house
committee and by the Indiana The
latter have sent a petition against the
paymenttothe president and congress.
The claim Is denounced as fictitious
and fabricated an infamous fraud of
the deepest dye.
Vann and Adair were Cherokee
Indians who it is alleged were em-
ployed by the Osage council in 1873 to
defeat what is known as tha Sturgis
treaty of 1866. Some sort of contract
the petition states was filed in the
interior department in 1874 and was
approved for 50000 and paid. The
petition states that Vann and Adair
were never employed by the Osage
council as the Sturgis treaty was vir-
tually defeated before congress ad-
journed in 1808. In 1809 it was with
drawn from the senate and legislation
enacted by congress for the sale of the
Osage lands In Kansas at $1.25 per acre.
Vann and Adair had no share in
the defeat of the treaty and made no
claim for services till live years later
when they demanded payment of $230
000. They recieved $50000 on' what
the petition states was a fraudulent
order and now their heirs demand the
remaining $180000. The petition sets
forth that the claim has been disal
lowed by several secretaries of the in-
terior and by the court of claims and
lialf a dozen times lias been pronounced
The claim was inserted at the in-
stance of the senators from Washing

Abut of Delivery Horace.
The attention of one of the Chief
tain's reporters was this morning called
to the abuse of horses used to deliver
goods about tlte city. Several stores
employ small boys to deliver for them
and In many instances these boys use
no Judgment in handling horses. In
most cases the boy driver gets two or
three companions in the wagon with
him and then applies the whip to the
horse compelling him to go at a rapid
gait through the mud. Something
should be done td prevent this unnec-
