The encouragement given The New
American is flattering. After one
month the daily has become the paper
of the people and advertising space is
now at a premium. The management
felt that El Reno would support a
good daily if run strictly on a business
basis, and four weeks has more than
met our expectations. The merchants
appreciate a proper advertising me-
dium after years of hand bill service
and are willing and anxious to hav»
a paper which will properly represent
the commercial interests of the city
and attract immigration and invest-
ment to the city.
The growth of The New American
has been so rapid that its facilities
have been too small to handle the
work. The American will always
make an effort to keep pace with the
field, and has placed an order for ad-
ditional type, a folder and other
equipment. The job stock carried
now almost complete, and the finest
quality to be found on the market.
The material is arriving daily and by
the middle of next week The New
American will be the best equipped
office in Oklahoma.
The advertising patronage given
The New American is wonderful, con-
sidering the short time the daily has
been re-established. The daily is here
to stay and will never cease so long
as the patronage justifies a first-class
paper. We will run nothing else. The
American was established for the sole
purpose of making its owner money.
We come to fill no long felt want, (the
want was felt, but we did not come
to fill it), but come to establish a
legitimate business, which would give a
profitable return. Our most sanguine
hopes nave been realized, and The
American desires to express its ap-
preciation of the support and confi-
dence of the people of El Reno.
The columns of The American now
represent almost every enterprising
and progressive business house in El
The patience of the public is asked

and pure blood are inseparable. If
your blood is bad, your health must suf-
fer. Poor blood allows the body to lose
vitality just as a poor fire under the
boiler allows the steam to run down.
From poor blood to impure blood is but
a step, and impure blood is mother to a
large percentage of human ills. Dr.
Harter’s Iron Tonic is an antidote for
both poor and impure blood, for it is
both a builder and purifier — a food
and a medicine. It is the best combi-
nation of the kind known to medical
science, and its success for ffearly half
a century has led to its endorsement by
thousands of medical men who have
been unable to find a substitute.

from impure blood. Scrofula, pimples, blotches,

danger, is the general weakening of the whole

testimonials we have received:

"I commenced using Dr. Harter's Iron Tonic
when prostrate from a severe attack of rheuma-
tism. After using three bottles all traces of
this disease were completely eradicated from my
system, and my general health was restored.
As a blood purifier Dr. Harter's Iron Tonic
has no equal, and I most sincerely recommend
it to all persons suffering from Indigestion,
fatigue, rheumatism, and the many weakened
conditions of the system produced by impover-

The crowd which greeted the re-
publican speakers at Calumet Friday
night filled the school house to its ut-
most capacity. The feature was the
large number of ladies present, not-
withstanding the cool weather v

recently completed and is commodious
and comfortable and is a worth repre-

G. W. Young acted as master of
ceremonies, and after a few happy rc-
| marks introduced M. D. Libby, candi
date for county attorney. Mr. Libby
made an able plea to the common
sense and business judgment of the
voters, laying all politics aside ai>
discussing the issues purely from a
buiness tandpoint. He made a lasting
j impression of his sincerity.
Col. Charles P. Lincoln made the
principal address of the evening,
drove the truth home to the voters in
a logical manner. The colonel i
of the most polished and masterly-
speakers on the territorial platform to- ! j,
day. He at once becomes in close j|
touch with his hearers, and the closest i
attention was given him for over ar>
hour.. Statehood was discussed pro
and con, together with text books and
the separate school question. The
colonel touched on national affairs on-
ly lightly, devoting the time to Okla-
homa and her needs.
W. A. Maurer, the next representa
tive in the territorial legislature, mad&
a short address. Mr. Maurer is one
of the fast rising young men of the
territory, an able lawyer, an easy and
pleasant speaker, and has the confi-
dence of every one who knows him.
J. A. Nichols, the original “Nick.'
added to the good humor and easy
manner of the audience, in an old South
Methodist speech. The earnestness of
Mr. Nichols cannot be doubted by any
one who hears him speak. “Nick" is
perhaps one of the best known men
in the county, and his friends and sup,
porters are as thick as the proverbial

criminals; Miss Nora A. DeBaum, the
young woman who will direct the ed-

chairman of the committee, each made
short addresses. The patience of the
audience was remarkable. Not a sin-

three hours' entertainment. After the
meeting a few moments were spent in
handshaking and expressions of sup-
port and confidence in the candidates.
