IN (JRKAT DISTRESS'
VOMITING SPELLS LONG RESIST-
ED EVERY EFFORT TO
Mrs. Brooks Became So Weak She \
Thinks She Would Have Died But
For Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills.
Mrs. Sarali L. Brooks, of No. 45 Lin-
coln Park, Chicago, Illinois, gives the
following account of her cure from dis-
tressing spells of vomiting:
‘‘For five years off and on I was
treated in vain by different doctors
for relief from a stomach trouble
which showed itself in frequent and
trying spells of vomiting. Part of the
time I was able to work, and again I
would be confined to bed for three or
four days in succession.
"My stomach was at times so deli-
cate that it would not retain even
plain water. The spells would some-
times occur at intervals of half an
hour, and would leave me so weak
that I would be compelled to lie down
between them. I would have several
ot them during the night following
a day of such attacks. Finally I be-
came so weakened that I had to give
up working altogether. I weighed only
“Last January I read about Dr. Wil-
liams’ Pink Pills for Pale People in
one of the Chicago daily papers and
bought a box and began to use them.
After I had used half a box I found
that I could keep on my stomach the
food I ate. I was encouraged by this
and kept on using the pills for four
months. At the end of that time the
vomiting spells had ceased altogether
and my weight went up to 142 pounds
and is still growing.
"I think I surely would have died If
It had not been for Dr. Williams’ Pink
Pills, for I sometimes vomited clear
blood, and for three or four days at a
time I could not eat a bite of any-
thing. One doctor said I had chronic
Inflammation of the stomach, and an-
other said my difficulty was a cancer,
but none of their medicines did me
any good at all. Finally I concluded
that 1 did not have blood enough to
digest my food, and I began the treat-
ment that has cured me. I can eat
anything now, and have strength for
all kinds of work. I always keep Dr.
Williams’ Pink Pills on hand, and I
recommend them to my friends be-
cause I know they cured me.”
Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills agree with
the most delicate stomachs and
strengthen the digestive organs until
they do their work perfectly. They
are sold by all druggists.
Could Not Be Bribed.
A good story Is told of A. C. Mae-
Daren, a well-known cricket player.
He was playing a picnic match "up
country” in Australia when one of the
batsmen skied a ball very high be-
tween the wickets. MacLaren was
waiting for the catch, but the striker
In running past cried, "Oh, Archie,

Weary Repetition. - 1
No sooner does one generation get
through with its little part upon the
earth when another comes along, do-
ing, thinking and acting the same
things. Indeed it's a mighty hand
from an exhaustless urn that pours
forth the never-ending flood of years.
Big Water Storage Dam.
The largest dam in the state of
Colorado is being constructed for the
Cascade reservoir in the San Juan
country. The wall will be 105 feet
in height, and the water stored will
reach a depth of 100 feet. The dam
will store 3,071,000,000 cubic feet of
water, or 500,000,000 feet less than
the famous Cheesman dam, which
stores Denver’s water supply.
Rule for Cyclists.
One of the rules of a bicycle club
reads: “A horse should never be
passed on both sides at once.” We
suspect that when a cyclist attempts
to pass on both sides of a horse “at
once” he Is expelled from the club. He
would certainly be dismissed from a
temperance organization.—London Tit-
School Question Must be Settled Ec-
fore any More Money Is Released
WASHINGTON: The Indian office
here is as yet without advices in ref-
erence to the alleged conflict between
the Indians and the negross in th?
territorial schools established by the
federal government. The report which
gained currency that friction between
the races existed is declined by the
officials to be erroneous. As a mat-
ter of fact, say these officials, the
Creek and Cherokees have a sepirate
schools for both Indian and blacks,
and have maintained a separation cf
the races in their schools since the
territory was founded. The Choc-
taws and the Chickasaws, on the
other hand, have negro schools and
have never permitted the negroes to
attend the schools devoted to the edu
cation of their youth. The trouble in
the present case seems to be directed
chleily against the white pupils who
have heretofore attended these
schools without objection, but who
are now looked upon with distrust by
the red men, for the reasons which
are purely local.
Congress at the last session passed
n law appropriating S100.0CO for the
establishment of ,-choo’s in th" terri-
tory, w.Jch were to be supplemental
to the schools already maintained and
in operation by and under the direc-
tion of the territorial office s. This
law read as follows:
“For the maintenance, strengthen-
ing and enlarging of the ttibai schools
of the Cherokee, Creek, Chickasaw
and Seminole nations, and making
provision for the attendance of chil-
dren of non-citizens therein, and the
establishment of new schools under
the control of the tribal school boards
and the department of the interior

The idea now seems to have
entered the heads of the leaders of
the Indian tribes that, if whites, i. e.,
| non-residents, are permitted to attend
these chools, established and main-
tained by the federal government,
this will be an opening wedge to the
federal government, ultimately assum-
ing control and direction of all these
schools, thereby taking ti.'el'' manage-
ment away from the territorial oift-
cers. It is this view which it is sail
alarms them. They are jealous of
the power exerc’sed by them over
tlielr schools, and do not want to part
The controversy has had the efto-it
however, of suspending work upon
all the schools nowr under construc-
tion. and nothing will be done further
in the direction of establish'ng new
schools until tiia matter has been
settled to the satisfact'on of the
superintendent of the ter;i‘oriaI
schools and the ofiicors of the inter-
ior department haling this matter in
charge. It may be stated inciden-
tally that the department here has
neither the desire nor the intention
of maintaining mixed schools, if it is
contrary to the wslies of the Indians,
and that the wishes of the Indians
will be fully respected by putting up.
if necessary, separate schools for the
negro youth of the territory.

VERY LITTLE LAND REMAINS

little land put on the market in the
Seminole nation wuen the Seminoles
and the freedmen have taken their
homesteads, reports to the contrary
notwithstanding. There are 853
freedmen in the Seminole nation. An
allotment here consists of $1109 worth
of land, according to the government
valuation, and there are three grades
of land. Of the fiivt grade sixty
acres constitute an allotment; of the
second grade, 120 acres, and of the
third grade, 240 acres. There mint
be reserved forty acres for a home-
stead from each allotment no matter
what the grade. Thus, on first grade
land an a'lotee would hive but twenty
acres to sell. On second and third
grade land he would have more, but
it would not be so valuable. Another
circumstance which will make sates
slow is the fact that the Seminoles
have not yet received their deeds,
and will not until 1906. There are
not many buyers who are willing to

Greater Than Theory.
It Is by doing that we learn to do;
by overcoming that we learn to over
come; by obeying reason and con
science that we learn to obey; and
every right act which we cause to

by authority, precept or example, will
have a great ..r weight in the forma-
