Dear Sir: You are interested in tbe

People can save half their monoy on
paint?more than half. Devoe Lead

mixed paints to cover a house and
lasts twice or three times as long as
lead and oil.
Paint is saved; labor is saved; and
the "painting nuisance" is mado half
When DeVoe Lead and Zinc is estab

more out of it than we shall.

WRITES FROM THE WEST.
pred Shell Tolls or tho Riches of lu
Okeenau, Feb. 17th.
Editok, The Advertiser, Sir: I
am sitting in a nice, quiet, comfortable
room on North 7th street In a small
town iu the Northwestern part of In
dian Territory by the name of Okee
n.ih. There is enough snow on tbe
ground to keep the people indoors and
my belog here in these circumstances I
deoided to write Tue Advertiser a
Now I will make an attempt to give
you a brief description o( this place,?
for there is q<>ite a contrast between
it aud Laurens county, South Carolina
and this is the beat country of the two
That Is, I mean to say, the opportuni
ties I think are better for a man that
wants to get a start on the road of suc
cess. Of course South Carolina is the
grandest State, with the most noble poo
ple on earth and a man that could not
say that about his pativo State would be
too sorry to mention. But the oppor
tunities that aro offered to a man in
Indian Territory now look good to mo.
Of course this country is only in its In
fancy now. But we have land here that
will produce anything that the climate
allows. Howover, thoro is litt'e of it
in a state of cultivation. But the In
dians are leasing to the white man on
reasonably terms and thousands of good
prairie land will go into corn and cot
ton fields in tbe next 5 years. I am in a
small town about seven months old,
without a railroad. The population of
thisplaoe from a census taken last wook
was 1,045 and people ooming every day
from all parts of tho country. We aro
contemplating two railroads sometime
In the near future. One known as tho
Fort Smith and Western Railroad Com
pany will have their road through here
by the time grass comes in the spring
aud when they both got hero I think
we will have one of the best towns lo
cated in the Creek Nation, Indian Ter
ritory. I am with the Okeenah Gin,
Oil and Milling Company. Wo have
put up over 700 bales of cotton the past
season and still ginning, and where it
comes from, judging from tho amount
of land you see In cultivation is a mys
tery. But it is nothing rai\3 to seo a
man In the Territory haul his produce
from 15 to 40 miles to market. I heard
a good, substantial planter I know to
make the following statement: That bo
planted 28t acres of cotton on his farm
last year and has sold up to this date
J2.281.02 worth of cotton on it. Say?
that's enough to make a sorry man feel
as If he was full of business. But be
fore I get called down by some of those
old acquaintances of mine out about
Chestnut Bldge I had bettor stop, hop
ing to see some of you a*, the re-union
in New Orlears in May, wherj we can

Lard Expensive and Injurious.
Lard is not only expensive but injur
ious to the health when used in liberal
quantities. To make the sorcalled
cheap patent flours white enough, the I
life is all ground out of the flour; then
it Is necessary to load It up with lard to j
make it work. This accounts largely
for your heavy biscuits and rolls and
digestion. It takes less than one-half j
the lard to work "Clifton" that It docs

more than tho difference, but get a
more healthful and nutritious food

Fatal Malady Prevalent
A NERVOUS DISEASE.
Its Many Causes and How
to Treat It.
Mouldy Food? Dad Weather aud Uu
' cleanly Surroundings Uxualfy
Responsible Tor It.
Dr. Nesom, the state veterinarian,
of Olemsou, has written the letter
printed below on the subject of '?stag
gers" among horses. It will bo read
with interest by Laurens farmers:
As it is quite out of the question to
give personal answers to all of the let
ters received from citizens of South
Carolina and Georgia regarding a
horee disease commonly referred to as
stsggere, I tako this method of say
ing to those o. ncerned that more and
more caseB appear every week, ar d just
at a season when horses and mules are
so much in demand for farm work it
becomes a serious question. The losses
in South Carolina from this disease
during the past year are ostimated at
about $10,000, and it is prevalent in
Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina
and Kansas. I had diagnosed tho dis
ease as cerebro-eplnal meningetis
noarly a year ago, but many of the
cases did not seem typical of this dis
ease. I have recently forwarded to the
bureau of animal industry at Washing
ton six of the brains taken from horses
that had died of this disease. A par
tial roport has been received and the
di3ca8o proves to be cerebro-splnnl
meningetis, or leucoencephalitis.
This Is a disease of the nervous sys
tem, affecting chiefly tho brain and its
covering membranes. Most of the
brains taken out recently hnve been
congested, some bled 6erum around
the brain, and over the right or left
half of tne upper portion of tho brain
(cerebrum) there has been found a
large area of degeneration. This can
nob be seen on the surface, but if the
brain be cut open what appears to be
a large ulcer Is found in the substance
of tho brain. This is the prinoipal le6
slon and Is responsible for most ofjthe
The symptoms aro those of noarly
all other forms of so-called "stag
gers," and death eenerally follows In
ono or two days If not very soon after
tho disease is noticed. The cause of
the disease is not well understood, but
Is always associated with mouldy food,
bad waior and unclean surroundings.
The remedy is to avoid the causes,
use only the best food, pure water and
keep the animals under the best con
ditions as to cleanliness. In one case I
saw where a numb r of mules died, the
only bad environment I could find was
that a lot of rank weeds had been
mowed down around the barn and left
to decay during a rainy spell of
Medical treatment is almost useless,
as the lesions of the brain have already
occurred when tho symptoms are no
ticed aud cure is generally out of tho
question whon so much of the brain has
become decayed. Cold shower baths
of tho head, doses of one ounce of
chloral hydrate, one ounce aloes, or
four ounces of whiskey, may relieve
the symptoms for awhile.
When the disease appears clean, dis
infect and whitewash the barn, and do
not use a stall where a horse has dUd.
If possible abandon lots and barns for
two or three months and provide quar
ters elsewhere for all horses kept on

Luck and Laziness.
Luck tapped upon a cottage door,
A gentle, quiet tap,
And Laziness, who lounged within,
The cat upon his lap,
Stretched out his slippers to the fire
And gave a sleepy yawn;
"Oh, botherl let him knock again!"
He said! but Luck was gone.
Luck tapped again, more faintly still,
Upon another door,
Where Industry was hard at work,
Mending his cottage door,
Tho door was opened wide at onrre,
?Vomo in!" the worker cried,
And Luck was taken by the hand
And fairly pulled inside.
He is still there?a wondrous guest
From out whose rragic hand
Fortune Hows fast?but Laziness
Can never understand
How Industry found such a friend,
"Luck never came my way,"
He sighs and quite forgets the knock
Upon his door that day.
