the way to spirit land.
With property in exe'ess of $8,000,-

the age of 70 years, but the federal

investigate the Indian’s gifts and to
determine If the old man Is being im-
posed on. Whether he will permit
Jackson to proceed with his plan for
distribution, Sells would not my.
Donation made recently by Jaek-
son Included $200,000 to the Baptist
general campaign fund, of which de-
nomination he Is a member; $25,000
to his church, $25,000 to an orphanage,
and $60,000 to other churches. He is
mid to have purchased nearly $1,000,-

was about fifteen years ago. I am now sixty-three
years old, hale, hearty and welL Can do as much
work as my daughters. I /feel strong and healthy
