Could Not Sleep. Mother Had to
Be Up All Night. Large Blisters
Came, Then Sores. Cured by
Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
Warrenton, Va.—"My little girl waa
troubled with eczema for three years. Her
bands burned and itchod and looked as If
they were scalded. She
could not sleep at night;
1 had to be up all night
to keep her hands in
warm water. She rubbed
her hands and large
white blisters came full
of yellow water. Then
sores came and yellow
.,. corruption formed. She
could not take hold of anything with her
hands. I used an ointment and triod a
treatment but nothing did her any good
so I got some Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
After bathing her hands with the Cuticura
Soap and applying the Cuticura Ointment
1 was astonished to see the great relief, and
Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment cured
her hands In three weeks." (Signed) Mrs.
John W. Wines, Mar. 8. 1912.

Epidemic Diseases and Publicity
Communities in which epidemic
diseases prevail sometimes attempt
to conceal the facts. This short-
sighted policy is adopted under th ■
erroneous idea that concealment will
do the community no harm and will
prevent damage to business and
ether interests, but that knowledge
of an epidcmic will reflect on the
cemmunity in various injurious way
Buffalo and Los Angeles, during tha
past summer, have had epidemics of
poliomyelitis; notwi'bstandlng the
unsatisfactory experience of San
Francisco a few year3 ago in regard
to the concealment of plague, a few
misguided business men, politicians
and, unfortunately, a few physicians,
opposed the efforts of the health de
partments in promptly suppressing
the epidemic, wishing to resort
the old exploded method of conceal
ment of conditions. Concerning 'his,
Public Health Reports of Septembei
20 has 'he following comment:
"During the course of the out-
breaks in both Los Angeles ana
■ Buffalo there was an effort on th
part of certain residents to belittle
| the Importance of the epidemics and
j the active measures being taken by
the health departments, with espe-
'cial reference to the publicity being
! given regarding the presence of the
i disease and the number of cases
occurring. However, in neither
case did this prove a material em-
barrassment to the health authorities
who received the earnest support of
both the practicing physicians and
the citizens in general.
"The impression that publicity re-
garding such matters injures muni-
cipal interests Is based on a fallacy.

of the Bureau of Plant Industry, De-
[artment of Agriculture, says:
The growing popularity of peanut
butter as a food has led to many in-
quiries, regarding the methods em
ployed in its manuCacture. Peanut
butter is in reality a very simple
preparation, consisting merely o!
fresh roasted peanuts ground finely
nd salted to suit the taste. • Sev-
eral large factories and a large num-
ber of small ones are no.v devoted
the manufacture' of this product
with which to supply the rapidly in-
creasing demand. Some of thi
larger factories are almost models
in their construction, equipment and
management, while many of the
smaller establishments, which have
ro elaborate equipment, are turning
cut an txcellent product.
Peanut butter was first manufac-
tured and offered for sale as a food
tor invalids, but the article was soon
adopted by many persons who for
one reason or another, such as
preference for vegetable foods only,
objected to the use of ordinary dairy
butter. It soon outgrew this condi-
tion of limited use and its develop-
ment on a commercial scale has been
a general product. It was never in-
tended that this product should be
used as a substitute for or a com-
petitor of butter, but as a luncheon
delicacy and to add variety to the
diet. Peanut butter is a wholesome
ti, d nutritious food product and has
become a popular article upon our
markets. Last year one manufac-
turer used over 130 cars of shelled
peanuts in the production of 6,000,000
small Jars of this food. Other manu-
facturers used large quantities, the
total consumption of peanuts for the
manufacture of peanut butter alone
amounting during the year of 1911 to
approximately 1,000 cars of shelled
goods, or 1,000,000 bushels.
In order to produce high-clas3
peanut butter the manufacturer must
employ the best materials. On the
ciber hand, the use of the best
stock obtainable will be of littl >
avail unless the work of converting
into a salable "product is conducted

Perry, Ok., Oct. 24.—Leaving a note
asking that his body be given to
the medical fraternity, Captain Jack
Mills, printer, author and newspaper
man, committed suicide here, shoot-
ing himself through the head with
a revolver. He was 65 years of age.
Captain Jack was one of Okla-
homa's pioneers, but was of transi-
ent disposition. One week ago he
came to Perry and accepted a posi-
tion with the Noble County Sentinel.
Saturday night he drew his pay
and went to his room. Here he
stayed most of the day Sunday
When he reported for work Monday
lie complained of not feeiinp well.
About noon he left work, and on his
woy to the Parker hotel, where he
killed himself a few minutes later
le spoke to a number of acquaint
ances, telling them that the troubles
of an old-timer soon would be over
No particular significance was at-
tached to the statement at the time
In the room where he committed
suicide was found the following note:
'There Is no use of holding an in
quest. iFor years I have tried t
light down this thing, but now, brok-
en in health and purse, I can n<
longer keep up the fight. This ha
been a glorious old world and I am
glad for having lived in it. I de-
B'.re that my body be given to the

The 'atest railroad proposition in

some good backing behind it, is the
Ardmore and Waurika Railway Com-
pany, Just chartered, with $100,000
capital stock. It Is organized by
Dorset Carter of Purcell, builder of
the Oklahoma Central Railroad from
lehigh to Chickasha. Carter claims
to have made arrangements for tak-
ing the Oklahoma Central out of the
hands of a recoiver, and expects to
cperate the new line in connection
with It. As the first step toward
construction he has started proceed ■
lngs to condemn Che old right of
way once acquired by the Rock
Island between Ardmore and Wauri-
ka, which, he contends, has been
forfeited by that road and has now
reverted to the original owners.
For at least ten years the Rock
Island has been promising to build
that line and went so far at one
time as to construct several miles
of grad". Carter sayB that his linn
will be built whether lie succeeds
in acquiring the old right of way or
not. Incorporators in addition ti
