Will Cause Rapid Development
The victory of the statehood bill
lias been the leading topic of discus-
sion by the leading newspapers of all
the states the past week. In every
one we find predictions of a rapid de-
velopment of this country from now
on. and that as we are now on a per-
manent basis outside capital will
feel secure in Investing here. That
the effects of statehood will be to in-
vite a substantial element to make
their homes here which will cause the
country to jjrow and f prosper socially
and Industrially: that while the
statehood question hunj? fire it was ta
barrier to progress. They believe
t.iat It will add an element of stabil-
ity to the business interests of this
cun try and be a stimulus to the
building of railroads and developing
the resources of the territory making
it a wealthy and prosperous state
and one of the greatest factors in the
commercialism of the United States.
Not only are all these things true
at viewed by outsiders but it is a
much greater blessing to the country
tiian anyone can comprehend at this
time. With the right of self-government
and a chance to make laws cal-
culated to develop the resources of
the country it means the abandon-
ment of the areas for grazing In the
south and west and the allotment of
lands In such proportion that better
products can be secured. It means
a lvauce it In education as well as
In every department of business life.
The people here have the bralnsener-
gy and Intelligence to run their own
business elect their own officials andj
care for themselves. In so doing they I
will have better onlclals and higher
respect for the law. What statehood
t mean cannot be touched upon by one
person it cannot be imagiuedat this
time and Its ultimate yood has never
been dreamed of it means everyt hing
for this country.

Mr. W. W. Haker of Plainview
Neb. writes: "My wife had lung
trouble for over lifteen years- We
tried a number of doctors and spent
over a thousand dollars witlisut any
relief. She was very low and 1 lost
all hope when a friend suggested try-
ing Foley's Iloner and Tar which I
did; and thanks be to this great
remedy It saved her life. She is
Wronger and enjoye better health than
she has known In tn years. We shall
never be without Foley's Honey and
Tar and would ask those afflicted to
try it." For Sale at Peoples .Drug

NATURE A KIND MOTHER.
Some of tha Curious Methods . by
Which She If ends Animal
How many weak and timid creatures
there are In the world with neither teeth
and claws for their protection axnior
for their defense nor speed with which
to escape their enemies! One can hard-
ly understand why they have not all been
killed and eaten up long ago. Nature
Is however kinder to these poor ani-
mals than she seems; for if she has
left them defenseless against attack she
has given them a marvelous power of re-
covery from Injuries says St. Nicholas.
When a tiny lizard has to scamper for
his life in search of a crack in the rock
he often has "so close a call" that his
pursuer snaps off his tail just as he
whisks into safety. A loss like this
would kill most larger animals but not
the little lizard. He simply waits round
quietly until a new tall grows and
then Is as well off as before except that
the new tail has a flexible rod of cartilage
where the old one had a backbone.
If an earthworm happens to be retir-
ing to his hole when a robin is out look-
ing for breakfast there Is apt to be a
lively tug of war between the eater and
the' breakfast Not infrequently the
bird gets the tail end of the worm while
the other half crawls away Into safety.
Not even a lizard could survive such
treatment as this but the earthworm Is
In ability to recover from Injuries al-
most as much superior to the lizard as
the lizard Is to us. He grows a new
half-body to replace the one which has
been devoured and seems to mind bis
loss no more than a boy minds having
his hair cut
There are besides some snail-like water-worms
which quite undo the earth-
worm In bearing up against misfortune.
If one of these chances to lose his en-
tire bead in a week or so sometimes
In only four or five days he grows a
new one brain eyes and all and is
as well off as ever. Even if a hungry
Ash gets two bites at him so that be
loses both head and tall the worm
ran patch himself out with new mem-
bers and go about his business as be-
fore. They have even beet) tnown to
get divided Into two pieces about equal
in size and each piece grow a new balf-
body so that there were two entire
worms In place of one.
After this It will easily be guoed
that 1.' the head end of the worm bap-
1 pens to be plit bait way down he will
grow two new sides and become V-
ehaped with to bead. Or If the tall
end is split new sides grow and a two-
tailed worm is made. Sometimes one
or two new heads develop close behind
the old one In the angle of the Y. In-
deed th lUMe creature seems to have
a sort of mania for making new beacU
and tails whenever be finds a chance.
If therefore the worm after receiv-
ing several wounds manages to escape
with his Itfe from the cuts which
happen to open forward little heads
grow out. and from those opening back-
ward little tails no doubt greatly to his
But what of the cut-off hearts and
tails? Do they make new bodies and
become whole animals again? Not
usually. The severed bead seems to be-
come confused so that it does not know
what to do. If It lives It Is more apt
to produce anuother head like Itself
and change into two heads placed neck
to neck so that tbey look In opposite di-
rections. So too. the severed tail
equally foolish doubles Itself and be-
come two uselen tails growing end to
But Isn't this ready quite Impossible?
A head or a tail or even a half-body
cannot get food. If it cannot eat. it can-
not prow: and that is all there Is about
it Well It i3 true that a fragment can-
not eat But still it can make the new
part out of its ow n tissue. So the animal
keeps gettiuesmallf ras it become more
nearly complete until when the new
part is finished the whole body may be
no more than the tenth part of Its prop-
er size. The reconstructed animals are
therefore forced to begin life over again
like young worms. In time however
they grow up to full size. When a bead
end makes a nrw head instead of a tall
or a tall makes a new tail. Instead of
a head the little creatures must neees-
sart'y waste aw ay and die.

Department of Justice to Make
Investigation of Charges.
Hon. Leslie C. Fuller of Washing-
ton D. C Is in the city to make an
Investigation of the charges against
Judge Raymond filed with the De-
partment of Justice at Washington
by Col. Douglas. Mr. Miller Is an as-
sistant In the attorney general's office
and comes prepared to make a full in-
vestigation of all the complaints
which have been filed or which may
be brought to his attention. He will
make his headquarters at the Katy
hotel and will remain in the city as
long as Is necessary to complete his
work. All persons who wish to be
heard will be given an opportunity
and are requested to call on Mr. Ful-
ler at the hotel any day after today
or if parties desire they may address
Mr. Fuller care of Katy hotel.
Just the course and plan of Investi-
gation which will be pursued has not
yet been fully determined. It Is prob
able that no effort will be made at
first for the establishment of a court
for conducting a public investigation
although this wil undoubtedly be done
if it is requested. If no demand is
made for such an investigation It Is
probable Mr. Fuller will make such
examination of the charges cliargea
as he thinks will be warranted calling
on those whose names have been
handed him and sesuring the state-
ments or affidavits of parties who may
heve a knowledge of the facta.
Mr. Fuller also said that the inves
tigation would not necessarily be con-
fined to to the city but that he would
visit other towns If he were convinced
persons wished to or could give evi-
deuce of Importance although he
would greatly prefer to meet the wit-
nesses here In Muskogee. He will
probably visit Wagoner owing to the
action of the bar of that city.
This is probably the first investiga-
tion of the kind to be held in the Ter-
ritory Because of the nature of the
charges and virulence with which
Judge Raymond has attacked Col
Douglas from the bench the progress
of the investigation will be watched
with Interest. Phoenix.
