Cure Any Cough That Is Curable.
Mix half pint of good whisky with
two ounces of glycerine and add one-
half ounce Concentrated oil of pine.
The bottle is to be well shaken each
time and used in doses of a teaspoon-
ful to a taulespoonful every four
hours. The Concentrated oil of pine
comes in one-half ounce vials packed
securely in tin screw top cases which
are intended to protect it from light and
retain all the original ozone. It is a
product of the laboratories of the

use bulk oil of pine or Imitations of

A TEST OF PRESERVATIVES.
Dr. Wiley Believe* * Poisonous Effects
Are the Cause of Prevalent
Washington.—Dr. H. W. Wiley, chief
of the Bureau of Chemistry of the de-
partment of agriculture reported Fri-
day to the house committee on ..grl-
culture the results of experiments con-
ducted by the bureau to determine tho
poisonous effect on the human system
of such drugs as borax, benzole acid,
bensoate of soda, sulphate of copper,
sulphur dioxide, formaldehyde and sali-
cylic acid, when contained In food
stufTs. Dr. Wiley said that the expul-
sion of those and kindred drugs from
the body is performed almost entirely
by the kidneys, and that he Is satis-
lied the term of American life would
be lengthened if the use of such drugs
in foods were wholly discontinued. Me
said he was convinced that kidney dis-
use, so prevalent among Americans, is
partly the result of constant introduc-
tion in the system of such preserva-
tive substances as bensoate of soda,
carried in foods. Discussing sulphur
dioxide and its injurious effects Dr.
Wiley told the committee of a discov-
ery just made by him that salt solution
is a perfect substitute for sulphur in
the whitening and drying of fruit. He
exhibited samples of apples dried ex-
perimentally by the bureau. The sul-
phured fruit was not so white or ten-
der as the salt cured.

Enid, Oklahoma, April 13, 1907.
Dr. C. F Simmons, San Antonio, Texas:
Mv Dear Sir—I was down on your Atascosa County ranch, and meat
four days in looking it over. It is a great tract of land; the finest *ar9*
body of land I was ever on. In the four days I spent on it I am sure I did
not see forty acres that could not be cultivated.
The soil is dark and chocolate sandy loam, and some black, waxy with *
little sand, but no blow sand. I took soil ffom different pastures, and
found the land all URderlaid with a good clay foundation.
In my opinion, this land, with proper cultivation, will produce every-
thing that can be grown from Maine to California. 1 never saw a more fer-
tile body of land anywhere.
Such land as this, if located in Oklahoma, would sell for $50 an acre.
The entire tract is within the artesian belt The water from these
wells that l saw and drank, was good for all purposes.
1 carried one of your ‘‘New llome Sweet Home” books with me snd
compared the views shown by you in it with what I eaw, and found every-
thing just as represented. I have read your description of this property,
and you have not overdrawn it in any way. No one can realize what s
splendid opportunity this is to get a good home for a very little money in
the finest climate and on the richest land in the world, until he sees it.
I will be very glad to answer any one who want* to know what I know
about your land. With best vrahes, I remain.
Yours very truly, J. 8. LIGHTFOOT.
Dr. C. F. Simmons has divided his ranch and is selling from 10 to 640 acres
