An Introduction Party.
To trik the lee nt a party, where
piuttti are unknown to each other
try tliln plan At n lareo mcotlnB ol
a eollcKo fraternity, tho clialnnnn ol
tho toclnl committee requested each
ono who waa to bo presented to aeml
her tho name In full. Thero weri
nearly CO people preaont and then
wero tally enrda tied with tho fralernl
ty colora, each liavlnc n laro number.
On tho rererso aide of tho cards Rlvea
tho mon wero tho namea of tlm Rtrlf
present nnd tho Rlrls- cards hnd thi
names of tho men. The acllnR liostcsi
oxplalned that thero would bo nc
forranl Intnxluctlons. Hint when n mao
or a Rlrl thouRht ho or sho had ills
covered "who waa who" the nnmo, ol
rather the number opposlto tho name,
was to bo marked. To tho ono who
made the largest number of corroct"
acquaintance a prle was awarded,
and thero were special prizes for dis
covering the fads or peculiarities ol
puesta. This la really a most Jolly
and ufTcetlvo method of placlnR a
largo number of stratiRora nt their
Way to Find Partners.
Of course. It wns tho pretty little
wlfo of a newspaper editor who tried
this way of mating partners for a
large progressive party. Hlio took
"ads." from tho Hundny paper nnd
irnsted them on dainty cards, distribute
Ing them so tbnt every "want" would
bo supplied. For Instance: "Wanted
Young girl, not over 1C. to learn
bookkeeping In the offlco of a whole
sale house" was answered by the guest
who held tho "nd." saylnR that a youiiR
girl wished to learn bookkeeping
Choosing those "ads." cleverly re
sults In u very funny tlmo before the
real business of the evening begins, or
should I any "entertainment?" To tell
the truth, I have been to some parties
lately that make the word "business"
seem more approprlnto than anytblnR
else, for tho way some women play
brldgo nnd other games causes rae to
think Hint the ultimate end of parties,
recreation nnd pleasure has been for
gotten. Nonnduya entertaining seems
like real work not only for the hostess
but for the guests.

A REMARKABLE TEXAS LAND
Wichita Valley Opent Up Rich Farm
ing Landt Hitherto Withheld.
Ono of tho most Interesting land
opcningi of rcccn years will occur
November lit, 1009. In tho Spur Farm
Lands In Dickens, Kent, Crosby nnd
(larza Counties, Texas tho body In
cluding in total 673 square miles, nnd
will bo sold In quarter sections or
more; tho slzo of tract giving It nn
Importance ranking with many Gov
ernment land openings, and tho ex
tent guarantees early purchaser r'.th
wlda ranga for selection Hint they can
securo exactly tho farm desired, as
to lay of land nnd character of soil,
which Is generally deep rich sandy
or chocolato loam with clay subsoil.
This body Is all under one owner
ship and will bo sold directly from tho
owners to the homescoker flo that
tho purchaser gets full vnluo In every
ncro ho purchnsea. Tho plan of snlc
of now farm landa usually Involves n
aelllng commission expense of $3.00 to
$5.00 per ncrc. which It loaded on tho
prlco tho farmer has to pay. In this
Instance tho buyer Is saved this ex
pense, nnd gets tho benefit of this
practical reduction In cost.
This new farming emplro Is nn Im
portant addition to tho agricultural
Innd of Texas; nnd Is wonderfully rich
nnd fertile. Tho farming lands will
bo told nt prices from $12.00 to $17. CO
per ncrc, with somo addition when
near tho two towns Spur, tho termi
nal town In Dickens County, nnd 01
rard, fourteen miles from Spur, In
Kent County ono-flfth down nnd bal
nnco In six annual payments, with
prlvllcgo to buyer of taking up any or
all bis notes at any time. Tltlo Is
Tho best farm developing road In
America (Tho Burlington System) It
Just completing Its lino from Stam
ford to Spur, nnd will Inaugurate pas
senger scrvlco by November 1st, 1909.
Sale of town lots will begin at private
sale on that day In both Spur and CI
rard nnd on that date a new Texas
city will be born nt tho terminus.
It Is surrounded by fertile valleys
and rich uplands for miles and miles
In nil directions. Tho development of
this great country will bo auro nnd
rapid, now that the one great need,
railroad to market, has been supplied.
At Spur n deep well outfit Is drilling
for nrteslan water.
A fortunato few secured holdings In
this tract on school lands twenty years
ago, and liavo prospered remarkably
in farming on tho then remote fron
tiernow brought Into close touch
with tho market. Their farms aro
yearly yielding evidence of the fer
tility of tho soil. There It no smooth
er body of land nnywherc, and this
guarantees concentrated settlement.
Wonderfully adapted to cotton (no
boll weevil ever known), corn, alfalfa,
grain, fruits, vegetables, nnd all farm
products. It Is a great hog country
no case of cholera has ever been found
hero. Quick run to Fort Worth mar
ket. Recognizing tho great possibilities
and wonderful future of Spur Farm
Lands, tho Stato has decided to place
an experimental farm station at Spur.
This will bo a great benefit to the
tcttlcrs In that region showing them
by nctunl demonstration on the landt
what crops can bo most profitably
raised; best methods of cultivation,
and assisting In all tho problems of
the farm. This decision wan reached
after a visit to the lands by Judge Ed.
It. Kone, Commissioner of Agriculture,
and Dr. II. II. Harrington, Director of
Experiment Stations, who recognized
their unusunl fnrmlng vnlue.
Tho owners of theso lnnds havo long
dealt in Texas lands, and have earned
a reputation which assures a square
deal to every purchaser. All Texas
knows this. It also guarantees a flno
development of the lands and the
towns with them. They will sell tho
farmer who In ready to develop, one
half of their holdings knowing that
the lands will greatly Increase In vnlue
with development Tho farmer now
buying will correspondingly and quick
ly profit on Incrcaso of his own lands,
and tho owners stand shoulder to
shoulder with tho homeseckcr.

The highest medical authority

Sir James Crichton Browne, LL. D. F. R. S.
gives tke best reasons for eating more
Quaker Scotch Oats
In nn article published in the
Youth's Companion of Septem
ber 33rd, 1909, Dr. Urowne, the
great medical authority on
foods, snys, about brain and
"There i3 one kind of food
that seems to me of marked
value as n food to the brain nnd
to the wholo body throughout
childhood and adolescence
(youth), and that is oatmeal.
'Oats arc the most nutritious
of all the cereals, being richer
in fats, organic phosphorus and
He says oatmeal is gaining
ground with the well-to-do of
Great Britain. He speaks of it
as the mainstay of the Scottish
laborer's diet and says it pro
duces n big-boned, well-developed,
mentally energetic race.
His experiments prove that
pood oatmeal such as Quaker
Scotch Oats not only furnishes
the best food for the human be
ing, but eating it strengthens
and enlarges the thyroid gland
this gland is intimately con
nected with the nourishing pro
cesses of the body.
In conclusion he says
"It seems probable therefore!
that the bulk and brawnincss of
the Northerners (meaning the
Scotch) has been in some measure
due to the stimulation of the
thyroid gland by oatmeal por
ridge in childhood."
The Scotch eat Quaker Scotch
Oats because it is the best of
In Bad Fix
"I had a mishap at the age of 41, which left me in bad
fix," writes A!rs. Georgia Usher, of Conyers, Ga.
"I was unconscious for three days, and after that I
would have fainting spells, dizziness, nervousness, sick
headache, heart palpitation and many strange feelings.
"I suffered greatly with ailments due to the change of
life and had 3 doctors, but they did no good, so 1 concluded
to try Cardui.
"Since faking Cardui, I am so much better and can do
all my housework."
The Woman's Tonic
Do not allow yourself to get into a bad fix. You might
get in so bad you would find it hard to get out.
Better take Cardui while there is time, while you are
still in moderately good health, just to conserve your strength
and keep you in tip top condition.
In this way your troubles, whatever they are, will grad
ually grow smaller instead of larger you will be on the
up-grade instead of the down and by and bye you will
arrive at the north pole of perfect health.

supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to digest
