What Sulphur Does
For the Human Body in Health
and Disease.
The mention of sulphur will lecall to
many of us the early days when our
mothers and grandmothers gave us our
daily dose of sulphur and molasses

It was the universal spring and fall
"blood purifier.'"" tonic and cure-all,
and mind you, this old fashioned remedy
was not without merit.
The idea* was good, but the remedy
crude and unpalatable and a large quan
tity had to be taken to get any effect.
Nowadays we get all the beneficial
effects of sulphur in a palatable, con
centrated form, so that a single gram
is far more effective than a tablespoon
ful of the crude sulphur.
In recent years, research and experi
ment have proved that the best sulphur
for medicinal use is that obtained from
Calcium (Calcium Sulphide) and sold in
drug stores under the name of Stuart's
Calcium Wafers. They are small choco
late coated pellets and contain the
active medicinal principle of sulphur in
a highly concentrated, effective form.
Few people are aware of this form
of sulphur in restoring and maintaining
bodily vigor and health: sulphur acts
directly on the liver, and excretory
organs and purifies and enriches the
blood by the prompt elimination of
waste material.
Our grandmothers knew this when
they dosed us with sulphur and molasses
every spring and fall, but the crudity

the property and erect on the site a

The land was given by Queen Christina
to Count Magnus de a Gardie, who sold
it to General For bus, after coming in
possession of his father's palace. I
1650 General Forbus built a-small palace,
which was partially destroyed -by fire

Dr. R. M. Wilkins while experiment

at the results obtained from Stuart's

from boils and pimples and even deep

seen them dry up and disappear in four

by druggists, and for that reason
tabooe by many physicians, yet I know
of nothing so safe and reliable for con
stipation, liver and kidney troubles and
skin disease
At any rate.people who are tired of

Special Correspondence.
QUANAH, Texas, Nov. 7.The north
western section of TexaB, commonly
known as the Panhandle and the Plainb,
an area in round numbers of 19,000,000
acres, has more surprises in store for a
tendertoot than any other section ot this
great state. The prevailing impression
or this secaon among people ot the North
ana tfast that it is a barren waste. Tno
writer's impression of this part of the
worid before the present trip, gathered
several years ago on an overland journej,
was that o- a vast de&ert waste, inhabited
by prairie dogs. Others again nave
thought it a section given up to cattls and
the cowboy, and the mental picture of th
latter wat gathered trom &io.ie6 and re
ports about nls dare-deviltry and his mis
tieatment of the settlers who aared to
encroach upon his domain. Many of these
reports emanated from the cattle men
themselves, who wished to retain control
of this vast range, and, theietore, pur
posely spread these tales abroad.
The dare-devil cowboy ano\cattle man,
If he ever were a reality, isdnow
of the
'past, as is the long horned Texa's steer of
years ago. The other day, while en route
to Portales, N. I had the pleasure of
meeting and conversing with a cattle man
of the present day (W. Morris of Por
tales), who has a 1,000,000 'acre cattle
range some miles west'of Portales. If
all the cattle men are of the same type
there is not a more gentlemanly body of
men anywhere. One of the gentlemen of
our party brought forth a bottle of tho
leverage for which Kentucky is noted,
and asked us to join him, but our friend
the cattle man would have none of it.
This refusal shattered the-last remnant
of a long entertained mental picture of
a cattle man, of the long"hair, disheveled
appearance, pistols, and penchant for
Mhisky type.
Cattle Grades Improved.
My conception of the cattle raised on
the Western plains also proved to be an
illusion. Instead of raw boned, long
horned, ill kept cattle, I was shown herds
of high bred Herefords in the pink of con
Whatever the Panhandle of days gone by
may have been, and it is-needless to enter
into the details of its past history, it is
today ona of the most promising sections
of the Southwest. There are millions of
acres of splendid land adapted every
where to the raising of abundant crops of
Kaffir corn-, milo, maize, sorghum, and
millet, which make the best fodder ob
tainable an} where, and large tracts scat
tered about the country are adapted to the
raising of cotton, wheat, oats, barley, and
The cotton crop is a marked success In
many sections of the lower plains. In
the sections around Quanah and Memphis,
Texas, about 250 miles northwest frqm
Fort Worth, this year's cotton crop will
average half a bale, or 250 pounds, to tfie
acre, which Is being marketedVat 10 cents
a pound. This cotton crop, coupled with
a most luxuriant yield of the fodder crops
already mentioned, brings the tiller of
the soil in those sections a handsome in
In the sections not adapted to cotton
raising, among whdeh, and worthy of
prominent mention, are the sections sur
rounding Canyon City and Dalhart, the
fcrage crops and wheat, oats, barley,
rye, and cattle are the source of a fine in
come. It is impossible to get a correct
idea'of the luxuriant growth of the forago
^crops from a description in cold type.
"One must see the fields and the tropical
density of the crops to appreciate the
astonishing yield.
Corn and Wheat Crops.
Indian corn has thus far not been raised
to any extent, but oats, barley, and rjc
bring an abundant jleld in neaily all sec
tions given up to culuvation, and wheat
is successfully grown in many places.
lixperts on the agricultural possibihtiss
in the Panhandle declare that wheat can
be grown successfully most everywhere
with proper eulti\ation. The buccessful
growing of Indian corn is more doubtful
because It cannot withstand the hot spells
and recover after they are over, like the
other crops. But good crops of Indian
corn have been grown in various sections,
and proper handling of the soil will do
much toward making the growing of the
ciop a success
Farming in the Panhandle is in its in
fancy. Vast tracts of lands are owned
by land syndicates and speculators, and
the state controls millions of acres of
school lands, and only a small part of
these vast tracts Is'under cultivation.
The state is now disposing of Its hold
ings to smaller holders, as are the syndi
cates and speculators, many of whom
are putting part, If not all, of their
holdings under cultivation, but most of
these holdings are four section or larger
tracts. One hundred and sixty acre farms
are unknown here, and years will go by
before small farms will be common. Un
improved and partly improved land is now
aold for $2 50 to $10 per acre, and choice,
highly improved lands bring $15 to $25,
dependent upon their proximity to the
cities. In the section^ adapted to fruit
raising, lands with orchards bring $20 an
acre even at some distance from the
towns. A vast triangular tract east of
-the Pecos valley Is attracting much at
tention. The central part of this section
is said to be very fertile. The absence of
railroads has held this section in the
background, but this handicap will soon
be removed.
Extension of Railway Lines.
It is rumored that the Choctaw line of
the Rock Island, extending from Mem
phis, Tenn., to Amarillo, Texas, will soon
be extended west and suth.
This great railroad^traversing the Pan
handle In almost every direction, must
soon make this one of the best settled sec
tions tn the state.
H. W. Campbell of soil culture fame
has under way on an extensive scale a
practical demonstration of what can be
accomplished in this section by farming
scientifically. There are two Campbell
farms in the Panhandle, one of 640 acres
at Farwell and one at Wantland. This
farm is also near the New Mexico border,
but abd*ut a hundred miles south of the
Farwell farm.
Two hundred acres were broken on each

The soil is thoroughly tilled and pre

done. The tilling Is so thorough that the
soil is pulverised into a mulch. This
mulch draws moisture from the ground
underneath, but the uniformly and thor

tion of the moisture, and evaporation Is
further retarded by continued tilling of
the upper surface. This retention of the
moisture makes it possible to raise good

WICHITA, Kan Nov. 8 The present
contention between pro-rate and anti

of our national, Congress with a view to
establishing a satisfactory law regulat
ing interstate commerce grows out of the
movement westward of manufacturing
industries very largely Those already
established in the West are meeting with
such success that others are being at

and in the middle states are beginning
to feel the influence of those invading'
their territory from some advantageous
point located near a large body of con
sumers, and are either preparing to emu
late the forerunner or offset his advan
tage to some extent by preferential
freight rates This latter method can
only result in temporary and partial re
lief, for the man "on the spot" will al
ways enjoy an advantage of the one a
long distance away, both in cost and time
of transportation.
The city of Wichita presents one of the
most flattering prospects for the location
of jobbing houses and manufactories of
any city in the West. Many raw materi
als are on the ground, as it were, and
others are located, so near by as to make
the "cost of securing them only nominal.
On the other hand, by the present and
growing system of railways every sec
tion of the great trans-Missouri territory
is easily accessible from Wichita. In
the role of a distributing center she is
unsurpassed her jobbing territory is the
most exclusive and the richest in natural
resources. The great wheat belt of Kan
sas and Oklahoma lies at her door. The
cornfields and stock ranches, from whence
are drawn such marvelous supplies of
beef, porjt, and mutton, surround her. The
wealth producing power of the Southwest,
while already appearing fabulous, is orily
In its infancy. Time will demonstrate
the advisability of converting many of
the large cattle ranches into small farms,
thus not only increasing the population,

Importance as Trade Center.
Special Correspondence.
CUSTER CITY, Ok Nov. 7.One of the
first questions which the stranger com
ing to this section of the country asks,
alter going through our agricultural
lenaB, js.
"Why, you seem to grow as good corn
and wheat here as we do in the Northl I
always thought your climate was too dry
down here for the successful cultivation
of the cereals."
That seems to be a more or less general
opinion among strangers, but it is one
-that is without the slightest foundation
in fact. No better crops of the cereals
are raised in any part of the country than
here, and the yield can always be depend
ed upon During the past season as fine
fields of corn could be seen around Custer
City as could be found is Illinois or Iowa,
which have for years boasted of their
Country of Diversified Crops.
One of the greatest claims of Oklahoma
as an agricultural country, however, is
the diversity of the crops which it is pos
sible to grow here. This is made possible
by the length of the season, and there
fore, if one crop fails, another can al
ways be planted in time for it to mature
With the shorter seasons of the North this
is never possible.
The past season has been one of great
prosperity in nearly every part of Okla
homa, and as a consequence the farmers
have plenty of moneyyto spend and are
making many improvements. The corn
and cotton crops especially have been
ood, and cotton is bringing a good price
he market at present is $3.25 a hundred
in Custer City, and returns from an acre
of cotton at that price range from $15 to
$20, which makes it a profitable crop for
the farmer to grow.
Heavy Wheat Yield Predicted.
There has been a large acreage sown
in wheat this fall, and there is some wheat
still to be gown. The fine autumn rains
have proved very beneficial to the crop,
and wheat is looking fine. All indica
tions point to a neavy yield next season

ital is coming In, and the prospects for
the future are extremely flattering There
are still a few undeveloped industries
here that ought to invite the attention
of capital. Located as this city is, in the
heart of a great wheat country, a flouring
mill could not fail to prove highly profit
able. Other industries that are inviting
are a creamery and a good hotel. Both
could make money from the start.
This city has a live Commercial club,
of which Mr J. D. Chalfant is president.
Prospective investors will be cheerfully
furnished with all the particulars they
desire upon application to the club or Its
While this is a period of general pros
perity in all parts of the country, yet
there are thousands of Intelligent and
industrious men in all the large cities
who are dissatisfied.
There are many wage-earners skilled
in the different trades, residing in the
overcrowded cities, having families de
pendent upon them, who are hampered in
a limited field and are making but a bare
subsistence, or are becoming involved in
debt, as a result of small pay.
There are farmers who are each year
compelled to abandon their farms and
start anew in more favored sections.
There are hundreds of merchants, with
capital invested, who fail to reap the
success to which their means and ability
entitle them.
There are capitalists who seek profitable
investments tor tneir money in enter
prises thousands of miies distant irom
their homes, in order to earn the interest
and aividenos which their home town
uoes not oner.
There are brilliant professional men
who are denied recognition in tne con
gested centers of the ii.ast, but wao rise
io eminence when situated in a rapidly
growing community wnere there is oppor
tunity to display tneir talents.
There are thousands of invalids search
ing for a favorable locality where tho cli
mate will be beneficial to their health.
To all these the great and growing
Southwest auords a gitater variety of op
portunities than any other section of the
Lnited btates. Its cities and towns are
expanding, requiring more and better
fptiiuies, more lnaustnes ana aB a nat
ural consequence more workers, both in
town and held. Its climate is restoring
to health and vigor thousands who go
there with physical infirmities. The ex
treme heat or the tiouih and intense cold
of tne North are never known. The annual
average tost of living in the Southwest .3
estimated to be nearly 20 per cent less
than in the North and East, and the ex
pense of sneltering and wintering cattle
and other live stock is proportionately
The investigator with an eye to domes
tic economy can easily estimate for him

in medicines, in heat-producing foods, in
the houbing and care of people and farm
animals, made possible in a climate
where summers are long and winters are
The growing season is longer than In
the East, the crops greater in number and
more diversified, and the profit corre
spondingly increased.
The Southwest has a strong lead over
other parts of the country In present
progress. For several years the Southwest
states and territories have surpassed all
the other states In railroad building, new
banks, new schools and increase of farm
ing population. These are the factors tha:
make rich commonwealths.
The East is overcrowded. Expenses
ar high competition is keen, oppor
tunities are few and all lines of business
are already well filled. Each town has its
drug, grocery and dry goods stores, mills
and manufacturing plants, banks and lum
ber yards.
In the Southwest there are villages that
will be towns next year and cities the
year after, in these places there is not
only room for, but an absolute need of
many more business enterprises and man
ufactory. There are openings of all
sortsfor mills and manufacturing plants
for small stores of all kinds, for banks,'
for newspapers and lumber yards. Me

There is no part of our country that of
fers the inducements to settlers of small
means that the Southwest does today.
Millions of acres of available land await
the homesteader. The soil is fertile, the
natural resources are many and varied.
In the last few years thousands have
found new homes in this great empire.
Some located on homestead lands, others
purchased Improved or unimproved farms
on favorable terms. Many had little capi
tal beyond willing hands, but they had
the courage to break away from condi
tions that bound them. They are succeed
ing and building Independence for them
selves, their sons and daughters. You can
do the same. Take advantage of present
opportunities Tvhlle these favored condi
tions exist. In the new Southwest there
are opportunities for every man. The
chances are all in your favor and not
against you.
Here, for example, is the experience of
an Oklanoma farmer in his own words:
"Not many men came to Oklahoma with
smaller capital than I did. When I came to
Hobart to locate on my land, about all I owned
in the world besides the land was my wife and
baby $100 and my two hands

eaily spring, vegetables, melons etc and I
found It gave me plenty to do to take care of

simplest description, that is a spade and a

$150 each, and the "whisky peddlers"
were bound over to wait the action of th

can be given them will be a year in the

MUSKOGEE, Ind. T Nov. .In an
swer to a telegram asking if he had stated
in his recommendation that lands in In
dian territory, except homesteads, be
taxed, that he would favor such taxation
within the limits of the five civilized
tribes in the future state of Oklahoma,
Indian Commissioner Leupp has replied:
"Anything quoted as coming from me
upon the subject mentioned in your tele
gram of yesterday is a fabrication. It is
not my province to recommend legisla
tion respecting the statehood In Okla
homa or anywhere else."
The publication In Washington dis
patches of the alleged recommendation
of Mr. Leupp concerning the future state
of Oklahoma created much comment here
among statehood politicians.
