fact that the last two grand

set aside because'of having been

WINNFIELD OIL. WELL R'Y
And the Pace Oil Company Or
ganized This Week.
In another place in this paper
will be found the acts of incor
ation of the Winntfield Oil Well
Railway Company and the Pace
Oil Company, Limited. These
companies have been organized
for the purpose of developing
one of the natural resources
which Winnfield posesses-oil.
A line of railway will beextended
from the town to the oil field, a
distance of three and one-half
miles. It is given out that the
road will be in operation within
four months and it is also re
ported that an oil well will be
put down by that time. The
derrick for the machinery has
been completed and made ready
for the drilling apparatus.
In subsequent issues we expect
to have more to say regarding
these companies and the enter
prises they have been org-.nized
to promote and. put into oper
ati'n.
Those best informed on the
subject are thoroughly of the
opinion that oil exists at the I
place in question and develop
ment is what is needed. If it
proves successful Winnfield at
once assumes an important place I
in the commercial world, and if i
oil in 'paying quantities is not 4
found, there is every indication I
that natural gas will be found in I
suflicient quantity to make Winn
field in the near future the lead
ing manufacturing point in the "
State. Either way means much
to the town and one or the other
is almost certain to result from
the development undertaken by
the Pace Oil Company.
The building of a line of rail
road to the oil. field is another
mians of adding to the town's
business prosperity. A railroad
in operation tb1re will result in, I
not o.ly the building up of the t
proper$y along the line, but a
watering place will naturally de- I
relope at the salt well, or oil r
ield, and many hundreds of visi- b
orea could be attracted here by t
the proper exploitation of the
salt water bathing and fishing ini
the Cedar creek andt Dugdemonia ii
abyou, all of which is easily poe
sible. -
As istated, we shall have some- '
thing more to say in subsequent
imues on this important subject.
Eyery Eai His Own Doctor.
The aveiage man cannot afford
to emnploy a physician for every
slight ailment or injury that may
oocurr in his family, nor can he
afford to neglect them, as so
slight an injury.as ~be scratch of
a pin has been known to cause
the loss of a limb. Hence every
man must from necessity be his
ewn doctor for this class of ail
ments. -Success often depends
apon prompt treatment, which
only be had when suitable
maedlelaes are kept at hand.

Stamps, Arkansas
has earned a great reputation for
their celebration of June 19th,
Emancipation Day, but for 1906
they have arranged to outdo a.l
,former etorts and this means to
go against a record of .6,000 vis
itors on one occasion. They will
have music, swings, games.
refreshments, and, in addition,
have secured the three immense
planer sheds and platforms of
the Bodcaw Lumber Co., for a
banquet and dancing hall, where
1,000 @jneing couples willt have
more than ample room. If you
have not tested the hospitality of
the colored people of Stamps, do L
so this year. , If you have, you
will go because you can not help
it.

THE LEGISLATURE IN BRIEF
t A Resume of Bills Passed and
Favorably Reported.
Baton Rouge, June 13.-Mr.
GaImble has introduced ta bili
iproposing an :liemndlt(nt to Act
108 of tlhe coinstitution so as to
make the salaries of distri.tj
t judges uniformly $3iU00. Somc
now receive those figures and; a
few only $2000. the latter being
chiefly in the hill parishes, where
industrial development has now
so largely increased the bu-ineiss
of the courts that the jutdges have
as much to do .asin those districts
wl.ere higher salaries are paid.
Mr. Gamble has also introduced
a bill to give the Louisiana State
University 1-100 of a mill of the
State tax as a permanent endow
mept.
Both houses of the General
Assembly have been hard at work
during the week, the lower t
branch i in its own all in the I
capitol while the Senate holds its i
sessions in the" Federal building. *
The roof in the Senate chamber
was burned end damage to the E
ceiling and plaster in the Secre- g
tary of State's office, the Land
Oflice and the Commissioner of
Agriculture's oftice is all the
damage done to the capitol by E
the recent fire. 0
Tulane University, which was s'
given the old University grounds F
and buildings in New Orleans c
when it was organized, is asking a
for an 'appropriation of $50,000 u
from the State. It is being vig- e:
orously opposed by those who h
are acquainted with conditions
which existed when the bill was
passed in 1884 authorizing the ft
organization of Tulane. The ad- hi
ministrators promised not to ask st
anything more from the State. hi
The House passed the bill pro- t
viding for the election of at- cl,
sessors, also the bill for the y(
divi ion of Calcasieu parisi. and es
creating the parish of Snyder bi
and referring the matter to the s
voters in the proposed new parish Si
for ratification. It is doubtful
whether the bill will pass the
Senate.
Followieg the Flag.
When our soldiers went to Cubal ,
and the Philippines, health was the tli
most important consideration. Willis in
T. Morgan, retired Commissary Ser- la
geant U. S. A., of Rural Route 1, .It
Concord, N. H., says: "I was two wi
years in Cuba and two years in the as
Philippines, and being subject to cc
colds, I took Dr. King's New Dis
covery for Consumption, whicirkept
ipe in perfect health. And now, in
New Hampshire, we find it the cest di
medicine in the world for coughs, th
colds, bronchial troubles and "all Iag CI
diseases. Gi-antaed" at all -drug- F,

You cannot induce a lower
animal to eat heartily wnen not
feeling well. A sick dog starves
himself, and gets well. The
stomach. once overworked, must
have rest the same as your feet or
eyes. You don't have to starve
to rest your stomach. Kodol for
dyspepsia takes up the work for
your stomach, digests what you
eat and gives it a rest. Puts it
back in condition again. You
can't feel good with a disordered
stomach. Try Kodol. mold by
