A Good Example
"1 am a good example," writes Mrs. R. L. Bell, of
McAlester, Okla., "of what Cardui will do for suffering
"1 suffered with my head and back, for over six yeais,
and although I tried everything, I never could get any
thing to do me any good, until I began to take Cardui.
Cardui has surely helped me and built me up and 1
am so thankful that 1 have found something that will do
me good. 1 feel so much stronger and better than I have
in a long time."
It is weil to make up your mind before you are sick
what medicine you will take when you are sick.
The Woman's Tonic
You will be glad to take it when you are tired, mis
erable and when life seems a weary grind. It will put
new thoughts into your head, fresh courage into your mind.
If not sick now, at least burn Cardui on to the pages
of your memory, so that when you are sick you will ask
for it without thinking.
If sick or weak, get a bottle today. At all druggists.

Local option is tolerated by tine
prohibitionists, not because ? is

tin' end being to gel rid of the truf
fle in toto.
it was my good fortune to Btump
tin- stale in advocacy of prohibition
in I89S, a time when the old State
dispensary was in the zenith of its
power. I fought for what I conceived
to he right, and went down in defeat
because ! was opposed to the dispen
sary. Recognizing in that campaign
its political strength, to dethrone the
dispensary and secure prohibition, 1
have favored local option as a means
to that end. and have been doing all
in my power to build up a healthy an
ti-whiskey centimeilt, I have worked
in season and out; I have spoken in
nearly every county in the State.
1 nill thankful that I have lived to
see. and have taken part in a cam
paign which has resulted in the whis
key lraffe being swept out of every
county in the stale save six. In my
judgment the lime has come for it to
he swept out of the entire State, and
1 am in for the war.
I stand for a prohibition law which
will he provided with the necessary
machinery to insure its enforcement
and. if elected governor, l will enforce
the law .or exhaust the powers of the
executive department in the attempt.
"A Itusiness Vdmlulstrutloii,"
a good deal is being said about
wanting a "business administration."
ah right: That is what the prohibi
tionists want, and arc compentcnt to
render. 1 dislike to bo personal, but
1 invite a close and careful inspection
of my own career as a business man.
I did not inherit money; I am not a
rich man, hut an inspection of my ca
reer will. I think, reveal the fact that
I am far from a failure along that line.
On educational matters. I am in
hearty accord with the well-defimd
policy of the siate. i believe in edu
cation to the fullest extent, flood cit
izenship demands it. and must havo
it. The stale is absolutely dependent
upon the quality of its eiti/.ensship for
good government; and the quality re
quired cannot he had without educa
Especially am I in favor of per
fecting the public school system, the
school where at least three-fourths ol
our children will get all they will ever
have of education.
And I am most heartily in accord
with the high school idea. Our col
leges arc. to a groat extent, doing high
school work. They could shorten the
college term and do better work if the
students entered hotter prepared. Es
pecially are high schools needed in
rural listricts, for there they would
put high school education in reach
of children of parents of moderate
mean:;?parents who cannot afford to
send to college.
Our young people must not only
he developed along menial and moral
lines, but along physical as well.
TJtcy must havo sound bodies.
This idea has never received the at
tention that it should In our common
I school system.
Improper constructed buildings, want
'of proper attention to the laws of
sanitation and hygiene and Iho failure
, to provide a system of medical in
spection have brought about a con
dition of .affairs extremely detrimen
tal to our young people along physical
lines. I am most heartily in favor ol
a system of medical inspection in our
common schools, to the end that the
above evils may, to a large extent, be
overcome. Our people, and especial
ly our young people, need education
along those linos. The powers of our
hoard of health should bo nelOTged
and our people should receive the
very best instruction possible looking
to the preservation and building np
Of physical health.
In connection with schools and es
pecially the rural schools, the pres

In thinly peopled districts the stimuin

The question of taxation has al
ways been a troublesome one for
governments to deal with. No sys
tem that is dependent upon Unite men
for it ; < nforcement can ever in- pet -
feet, or perfectly enforced. The clilol
trouble with i.il systems i- the dlfll
culty that exists with reference to
equalization. So Ion;: as every citizen
pays upon the same basis of valuation
no injury is done. But to secure this
equalization has been the trouble ever
since government was organized. The
man who can solve this question will
solve the most difficult one connected
with government affairs.
There is one thing with reference
to taxation, however, upon which all
property holders are agreed, namely:
We do not want to pay any more tax
es than are necessary to good gov
ernment. 1 cannot he denied that the
tendency in modern times is towards,
extravagance in individual ltd in gov
ernmental life. It is easy to make
large appropriations and spend the
hard earned money of tue peo| le. A
halt must he called. Taxation hits
gotton to he a burden upon our peo
ple. 11 I am correctly informed, we
are now paying more Stale taxes than
we have ever paid.
Of course, it must he borne in mind,
that increase in population and pro
gress along other lines call for the
expenditure of more money in order
that tlx* efficiency of the public ser
vice may he maintained. But is it
not true that tin* increase Of taxable,
values shown on (he books from year
to year, ought to ho ample to meet
the increase in our expenditures? It
occurs to me that such is the case,
and there should be no further in-1
crease in the rate of taxation. ?
I am in favor of economy; i am not
in favor of impairing the public ser
vice by niggardliness.
In this connection. I want to say i
that I am in favor of biennial sessions
of the general assembly.
One every two years Is often enough |
for it to meet. I
I am also in favor of fewer elec- <
lions. In my judgment all State and
county offic ials should be elected for
a term of four years. A change in |
these respects would bring about a j
considerable saving to the taxpayers
and would prove beneficial along other
The last thing which I desire to
touch is the enforcement of law and
order. The sorest spot in our gov
ernmental life is the weakness of our
people along that line. They must
be taught to respect and obey the law.
Herein lies the only safe-guard to
life, liberty and property. Govern
ment is worthless if it does not pro
tect these. I low shall the enforcement
of law and order be made more effi
cient? I answer.
First?By better discipline in the
Second?-By getting better men in
the jury box.
Third?By inflicting punishment
commensurate with the offense.
Fourth?By a refusal on the part of
the chief < xecutive to pardon men who
have been convicted. It will do little
or no good to convict men of crime If
they know they will likely be pardon
ed. The pardoning power should not
be employed save in rare cases.
There are numberless other mat
ters to be given duo attention in the
campaign. But these five questions
are fundamental: Prohibition, admin
istration, education, taxation, lav en
in conclusion, let me say that. If
elected. I shall endeavor to perform
my duties fearlessly and impartially;
that in their disCharge I shall know
no section, no men. nor sot of men.
