The killing of Don Beck at
Maysville the other day emphasizes
the fact that the days of the out
law are few and full of trouble. J
dozen years ago the outlaw was
hard to dislodge owing to the
thinly settled condition of the
country but with the present court
facilities and the thickly settled
country they are generally cap
tured or killed in a few days or
weeks at the outside.
.No man ever sheltered a more
dangerous thought than that of
revenge for some real or fancied
wrong. Today a man remaned
on the street that he would get
even with some one who had
wronged him. Such a spirit is the
sign of a jaundiced mind and the
man is proposing to take into his
own hands the prerogative of the
Almighty who says: "Vengeance
is mine; I will repay."
A report has been circulated
among Cherokee Freedmen to the
effect that the "Wallace roll" of
the Freedmen is to be used by the
Daw es commission as a basis for
making the roll beginning the first
of next April. This statement is
a mistake the roll will be made in
strict compliance with the decree
of the court of claims and the
law governing the commission is
quoted along with the announce-
ment ot dates and places for tak-
ing the census.

Indian Territory is prolific of
tender romances and a little "two-
bit"1 advertisement has resulted in
uniting a man and woman for bet-
ter or for worse. Both however
are of a standjng that would in-
dicate that there will be little of
the "worse" in decided contrast
to marriages that are usually con-
sumated as the result of advertis
ing for a wife or husband.
In a spirit of fun a young Chi-
cago lawyer of some ability and
attractive physique placed a small
advertisement in the Tahlequab
Arrow announcing 10 the readers
of that paper that he "wanted a
wife." The young man had read
of the beauty of the women of the
territory and of their rich posses
sions and he had also read the
printed denials to the "fake"
newspaper stories that there were
10000 Indian maidens with
$10000 each who were pining
their lives away in sorrow for the
want of a man to love them.
The advertisement was signed
'Max Stock" and without as he
says an idea tbat he would re
ceive a reply. He was surprisec
and pleased when a perfume
scented missive was received from
Mrs. Hattie Gordon of Tahlequah
wbo. although young enough to
again marry has already been a
widow twice. The lady's maiden
name was Ingram. Her first hus
band was named Trainor.
Her photograph sent with the
letter showed a splendid looking
buxom and healthy woman. This
fact combined with the statement
that Mrs. Gordon's previous two
husbands Lad left considerable of
a "stake" in money land and cat-
tle determined the . young lawyer
to go at once to Tahlequah.
The man from the windy city
soon got on the trail of the "In-
dian maiden" and when he caught
up with Mrs. Gordon it was a case
of love at first sight. The lawyer'9
name is Payne and he pleaded so
well his cause after supposedly
examining the title to the "money
lands and cattle" that Mrs. jor-
don demurely consented to a
hasty marriage. Mr. Payne will)
practice law at laniequan and in
the courts of the territory.

A Fireman's Close Call.
"I stuck to my engine although
every joint ached and every nerve was
racked with pain" writes C. W. Bel-
lamy a locomotive fireman of Tur-
lington la. "I was weak and pale
without any appetite and all run
down. As I was about to give up I
got a bottle of Electric Litters and
after taking it I fell as weil as I ever
did in ruy life." Weak sickly run
down people always gain new life
strength and vigor from their ue.

Thomas M. Fields and F. H.
Wesson are neighboring farmers
near Eagle north of Vinita.
The former was bothered by
Wasson's cows who bad a liking
for the particular corn grown by
Mr. Fields and a habit of break-
ing th-ough the fences. Fields
finally drove the cows a bard
chase northward and they wand-
ered over into Kansas. The pick-
ing must have been rather light or
the fences stronger in the Sun-
flower state because when Mr.
Wasson got the cows back home
they were greatly emaciated.
Wasson sued Fields for damages
and the trial occupied the attention
of Judge Gill and a jury all day
Saturday. .Late in the evening
the jury returned a verdict in fa-
vor of Mr. Fields and gave him a
judgment for S77.50 damages for
bis loss of corn.

that while a peasant was shooting- in

permitted the sportsman to extract

Nine out of ten women ire afflicted with some of the
common ailments known as female diseases. Among
women whose employment requires them to stand on their
feet or sit in the same position all day not one In twenty-
five escape these troubles. The average feminine consti-
tution cannot unaided withstand the strain to which
steady trying work subjects them. The organs ol woman-
hood are so delicate and finely adjusted that the inevitable
result of constant standing lifting stooping or straining is
displacement of vital parts. The disorder is usually slight
at first but soon develops into irregular or painful men-
struation leucorrhcta or falling of the womb. Wine of
Cardui is the right remedy for female weakness. As such
it is offered to you. Wine of Cardui will not perform
miracles but it will if taken as directed insure painless

drive out every trace of leucorrhcta and willso strengthen
