writes as follows: "1 was down with
stomach trouble for five (5) years, and
would have sick headache so bad, at
times, that I thought surely I would die.
I tried different treatments, but they
did not seem to do nie any good.
I got so bad, I could not cat or sleep,
and all my friends, except one, thought I
would die. He advised tue lo try
Thcdford's Hlack-Drattght, and quit
taking oiher medicines. 1 decided to
take his advice, although I did not have
any confidence in it.
I have now been taking Black-Draught
for three months, and it has cured me?
haven't had those awful sick headaches
since I began using it.
1 am so thankful for what BlAck
Draught has done for me."

4IN FLORIDA LANDS
Grand Jury indicts Sales Company Of
jeers. Hadley Claims Any Mislead
iir.' Is Due to Federal Oflieers.
Kansls City, Mo., Nov. 20.?Eight
officials and agents of the Florida
Fruit Lands company were indicted
by the federal grand jury here today
on a charge of conspiracy to use the
mails to defraud In connection with
the sale of 180,000 acre- of land in
the Everglades district of Florida to
12,000 purchasers In various States.
Those named In tho Indictment
are Richard J. Holies, Jacksonville,
Fla.; George A. Paddock, Chicago;
Jesse L. Bllllngsly, Jacksonville. Fla.,
and John Mathows, J. H. Martin, It.
J, M?rders. Edward C. Chambers and
A. 1). Hart or Kansas City. Each was
Indicted on 21 counts.
"It' my clients have misrepresented
the lands they are Belling it was be
cause they were misled by officials of
tho Stale of Florida, and Officials of
the United Slates department of agri
culture," Herbert S. Hadley, attorney
for Martin and M?rders, tonight de
Judge A. S. Van Valkenburgh fixed
bond at $5,000 each, which Borders
and Martin gave. The other Indicted
men were not present. Mr. Hadley
said he would enter pleas for his
clients In 20 days and tho trials will
be held at the spring term of court.
The Florida Fruit Lands company,
organized four years ago by H. J.
Moiles or Jacksonville, Fla., is said to
control nearly aOO.OOO acres of land
in the Everglades, It is alleged that
IS0.000 acres were placed In the
hands of Robert J. Martin and
Joseph H. Morders, sales agents In
Kansas City, and by them sold in
small tracts to 12,000 persons, mostly
in Kansas City and adjoining terri
The grand jury investigation was
undertaken two weeks ago at the be
hest of small purchasers who were
dissatisfied with drainage conditions
on their tracts. It was said that more
than $2,.,000 was Involved In the
sales conti.acts and that more than
$200,000 already 'had been paid to
McLaurin Proposes Heavy Tax on In
terstate i radio. Would Itemed) Kvlls,
New York, Nov. IS. Kx-Sena to;
John !.. McLaurin Of South Carolina,
proposed a plan for ending objection
able gambling in cotton futures, In an
address today to a committee from
the New Vorl. cotton exchange which
is considering changes in the rules
to meet criticism directed against
present methods. Mr. McLaurin said
the failure of congress to enact legis
lation at this session imposing a tax
OU dealings in cotton options was due
to the fact that no plan had been de
vised to destroy gambling In con
tracts which does not also involve the
destruction of legitimate business
necessary to keep open such channels
of trade as could not he closed with
out disastrous effects.
Mr. McLaurin said the present sys
tem was objectionable because cotton
prices made on the New YoTk ex
change were based upon the supply
of cotton in New York warehouses.
As this stock of cotton is only a com
paratively small part of the total, he
said, it was possible for speculators to
manipulate prices for gambling "pur
poses In a day which would otherwise
not be possible.
Under present methods, contracts
made on the New York exchange, call
for delivery of warehouse receipts
for cotton stored In New York ware
houses. Mr. McLaurin suggested
that the plan for n tax on cotton op
tions which was considered recently
by congress he amended to provide
for a heavy tax on all contracts made
through all exchanges In the United
States provided that cotton delivered
in the State in which it is grown be
exempt from the tax.
"What would you do then?" he
said. "Your New York stock of cot
ton would be absolutely valueless for
the purpose of Inflating or depressing
prices. You could not afford to de
liver cotton except in the South. Why
should not the great New York ex
change get In the van and lead this
progressive! .movement, instead of
being driven by a congressional lash."

HOLD TOO MUCH
Their Control of Water Power De
nounced. Would Check it Now,
Washington, Nov. op.?Monopolistic
control of water power in private
hands today was denounced by the
National Conservation congress which
adjourned here? late today. Accom
panying th' denunciation was a dec
laration that no water power rights
owned by the public ever should be
removed from public ownership.
The climax of the water power
light, which had agitated the congress
for several days, came after the com
imittce on resolutions to which had
been referred divergent reports from
the waterways committee submitted
that the matter had been taken from
its hands yesterday by action of the
convention in adopting general prin
ciples upon which the waterways com
mittee agreed. No mention of the
majority or minority reports, which
differed as to State and federal con
trol of water power projects, was
made in the resolutions committee's
When (the report had been read
Gilford Pinchot, former chief forester
Of the United States, moved as an
amendment, a declaration of princi
ples on waterway control similar to
the Ideas In the minority report slgn
'ed by himself, H. L. Stlmson, former
secretary of war, and Joseph N. Teal
Of Oregon. His amendment was adopt
ed by a vote of :U7 to 96.
