Every mother realizes, after giving
her children "California Syrup of
Tigs," that this is their ideal laxative,
because they love its pleasant taste
and it thoroughly cleanscs the tender
little stomach, liver and bowels with-
When cross, Irritable, feverish, or
breath is bad, stomach sour, look at
the tongue, Mother! If coated, give
a teaspoooful of this harmless "fruit
laxative," and in a few hours all the
foul, constipated waste, sour bile and
undigested food passes out of the bow-
els, and you have a well, playful child
again. When the little system is full of
cold, throat sore, has stomach-ache, dl-
srrhoea, indigestion, colic—remember,
a good "inside cleansing" should al-
ways be the first treatment given.
Millions of mothers keep "California
Syrup of Figs" handy; they know a
teaspoonful today saves a sick child
to-morrow. Ask your druggist for a
bottle of "California Syrup of Figs,"
which has directions for babies, chil-
dren of all ages and grown-ups printed
on the bottle. Beware of counterfeits
sold here, so don't be fooled. Get the

The legislature eaters on Ihe last
week of the sixty-day $6 a day ses-
sion with virtually all important legis-
lation awaiting final action by «one of
the other branches.
The road bill is yet in process of
formation. A bill has been passed by
the house, but the senate is proceed-
ing with another measure the same as
if the house had taken no action. The
general appropriation bill, which is
always the subject of considerable
debate when up for consideration, was
introduced only laBt week. Nearly all
school appropriation bills have been
passed by the house, but they are yet
awaiting action by the senate.
The finished work of the session, as
shown #/ the measures that have
reached the governor's office, consist-
of barely fifty bills and resolutions,
which have been signed by the gov-
ernor. Of the bills signed a number
of them are local bills, resolutions and
A total of 492 bills have been intro-
duced in the house, and 318 had been
presented in the senate, making a
total for the session of 810 measures.
The house rules committee is al-
ready acting as a steering committee,
sifting the calendar each night and
advancing the bills which merit early
In view of the short time remain-
I ing before the end of the session, it
j is now regarded quite certain that a
large number of measures will die on
the calendars of both houses when
, final adjournment is taken.
- A blue sky law proposed by Senator
| T. C. Simpson had rough sailing when
I called up on final passage in the sen-
ate and the upper house finally voted
twenty to nineteen to extract most of
the teeth from the bill and to recom-
mit it to the committee on private
corporations with instructions. An
attempt to recommit the bill to a spec-
ial committee without Instructions,
which virtually would have killed the
measu?e, failed by a note of twenty-
five to ten.
The motion which sent the bill back
to the committee on private corpora-
tions carried with it instructions to
strike section No. 17, which would
have prohibited the board of directors
of a corporation from fixing the value
of its property and would only have
permitted as much stock in a company
to be issued as correspyided to the
"reasonable cash value" of the prop-
erty. This motion was made by Sen-
ator R. L. Davidson, who asserted
that this section, which is not in the
Kansas law from which the bill was
copied, provided the real teeth for the
The senate decided to appoint a
special committee of five to examine
reports of members of an investigat-
ing committee assigned to probe con-
ditions of the girl's industrial home
A resolution to authorize acceptance
by the state of the property of the
Bookertee Agricultural School for
Negro Boys and Girls at Bookertee,
on the east side of the state, was in-
troduced in the house by Representa-
tive McNabb of Sequoyah county.
The school was founded by John
O. Leftwich, negro educator and
school promoter, who is present head
of the institution, which is said to
have an average dally attendance of
200 students and from 12 to 18 teach-
The property consists of ten acres
of ground and the main building three
| stories and 80 by 80 feet; valued at
approximately >30,000. The owners

nate it to the state for $1, providing
the state will agree to maintain and
operate it as an agricultural and me-
chanical school for the benefit of ne-
Three reports were submitted fo the
senate last week. The majority re-
port was signed by T. F. Hensley,
James Spurlock and M. W. Pugh. A
minority report written by Senator
R. L. Hall which took state officials
and employes at the home to task
severely, also was submitted. A third
report was made by Senatpr S. S.
May field, chairman of the investigat-
The report of Senator Mayfield con-
sisted of a part of the report written
by Senator Hall and a part of that
written by Senator Hensley.
The sanatoria bill was passed with-
out discussion and without formal roll
call, the vote on a previous measure
being applied on the sanatoria bill
without opposition. As the bill passed
the house, Talihina, in Le Flore coun-
ty, is designated as the location for
one of the sanatariums. The expect-
ed fight on this provision failed to
develop. Representative Stevenson,
who had lodged a notice that he
would ask reconsideration of the
designation of Talihina abandoned the
fight when he saw the bill would re-
ceive unanimous indorsement
A compromise on the good roads
program before the legislature that
will result in carrying through both
the administration 150,000,000 bond is-
sue bill and the plan of Senator J
Elmer Thomas will be reached within
the next few days.
The new idea that has been ad-
vanced and which is expected to be
the oasis of an agreement of all fac-
tions is this:
First. Stripping the resolution
calling for the submission of the road
bond issue of all machinery for crea-
tion of a commission and carrying on
work of building roads.
Second. Passage of a law-creating
a road commission and establishing
a road fund to meet federal aid.
Third. Submission of the $50,000,-
000 bond issue at a special election
as a bare appropriation proposal.
Fourth. In event of the bonds be-
ing voted, machinery created by the
legislative act for building the roads
will be used in spending the money.
Fifth. Should the bonds fail, the
legislative act would stand and with
the diversion of the gross production
and income taxes, would make it pos-
sible to meet federal aid and proceed
with the building of the roads with-
Sixth. Routes selected for road
building would be included in legis-
lative act and would be followed
whether built out of oond issue or out
of other funds.

of the senate who has received what
they consider undue prominence' in
The Cat, Campbell Russell's personal
crgan reached a point last week where
the senate voted to impeach Commis-
sioner Russell, or rather to ask the
house to do it. The house, however,
failed to take it as more than a dis
play of peevishness on the part nf
Senator Warren K. Snyder of Okla-
homa county and a few others and
did not find time so far to consider
The senate passed a bill appropriat-
ing $125,000 for the creation of a
state schol of mines at Miami. The
bill obtained a bare* majority of 23
votes with 14 votes being cast against
it. Senator J. J. Smith of Miami led
the fight for the measure with Sena-
tors Frank Carpenter, Harry B. Cor-
dell and others who recently went on
a junketing trip to Miami supporting
it. In opposing the bill Senator J. El.
mer Thomas made the statement that
no school bill could be defeated in
The bill fathered by the State As-
sociation for the Cure and Prevention
of Tuberculosis, providing for the con-
struction of a chain of sanitoria for
the treatment of infected persons, was
advanced through the house commit-
tee of the whole after being amend-
ed so as to provide for only three
sanitoria, just half the number that
was asked in the committee bill. The
appropriation of $600,000 as provided
In the original bill on the basis of
the construction of six buildings was
reduced to $300,000. In all other ma-
terial respects the bill was advanced
in the same form in which it was re-
ported by the committee.
The house committee's substitute
for the Cheatham bill, providing for
the appointment of a code commis-
sion to codify the statutes of Okla-
homa in pursuance of the provisions
of the constitution, was passed by the
house of representatives. The bill
provides for the appointment of a
committee of eight members of the
legislature, four to be designated by
the president of the senate and four
by the speaker of the house, to have
charge of the work. They are to be
pail $1 a day for their services, and
are authorized to employ such addi-
tional help as necessary.
The bill appropriating $300,000 for
the construction of three state tuber,
culosis sanatoria, was passed finally
by the house.
A bill passed by the senate will re-
sult in a peculiar situation in that
a secretary will receive more than
the executive officer he serves. The
measure applies to salaries of clerical
help in the office of lieutenant gov-
ernor and the state election board.
It gives the lieutenant governor a sec-
retary at a salary of $1,500 a year.
The salary of the lieutenant governor
is $1,000 a year.
The use of the United States flag
or coat of arms commercially or any
indignity imposed upon the flag is
made a misdemeanor punishable by
fine and imprisonment by a bill which
passed the senate.
The school land commission was
authorized by the senate to extend
oil and gas leases on 100,000 acres oi
Cimarron county school land to J. S.
Harris and Arthur O'Dell.
The senate killed the graduated
land tax bill passed by the house by
a motion to postpone the measure
indefinitely. The motion carried IS

A WAR-TIME ILL THAT'S SPREADING
HUNTS SALVE CURES IT!
BRED in the war trenches of Europe, a wave of ordi-
nary ITCH is spreading over the country. This skin
disease, history shows, has always prevailed, following
wars and the concentration of armies. It was common
during the Civil War and following that conflict. There
was an epidemic of the Itch after the Spanish-American
War. Now hwtory is repeating itself after the great
.European struggle. °
Returned soldiers and those with whom they come in
contact will find a recognized remedy for the Itch in
Hunt s Salve, commonly known as "Hunt's Itch Cure."
Many a veteran of the late '90's will testify to its merits.
