For Growing Boys
loo many stores say,
“Oh, well! you can't
expect to do any bet
ter; can't expect a per
fect fit on a growing
boy.”
Poor excuses are
better than none, they
think — but it’s not
good enough for Porter
Neel’s.
Coats that hunch
up in the back until
the collar stands away
from the neck all
around; lapels that
strike half way to the
back—NO, SIR; not
for Porter-Neel’s.
T&t Our boys go out
looking as trim and neat as we show them in
the picture here—every time.

Brood of Chickens Taken.
This morning when Justice of the Peace
Billups J. Gayle went out into his yard
and looked in his wired chicken coop un
der his house he found two lonesome little
chicks back In the far corner.
Bast night when the. chickens went to
roost there were seventy-five little
chickens the size of a partridge in the
coop and about a half dozen frying size
chickens. About 2 o’clock Mr. Gayle heard
the chickens running around under the
house and thought that a rat was after
them. He got up and went to the window',
hut could see nothing and the chickens
having quieted down went back to sleep.
This morning three of the frying size
chickens and all of the smaller ones wero
missing. The chickens had been hatched
in an incubator about six weeks ago.
It was not a rat that took the chickens
for the tracks of a human foot were dis
tinctly seen leading from the coop and
evidently some negro took the entire
brood away.
Selma’6 Trees.
Professor Mackintosh, state horticultur
ist, who was in Selma yesterday, made
a thorough examination of those trees
which showed any indication of deca>,
and collected bugs, insects, fungi, rotten
wood and twigs and leaves from the
trees. These he will examine at his lab
oratory and probably send some of them
to the experts at Washington for exam
ination. He was unable, until such study
and examination, to give an opinion as
to the trouble wdth the trees. He did
make one suggestion which may well be
noted by all who own trees or having to
do wdth their trimming.
He said that it was a great mistake in
trimming the trees to cut the limbs off
at any distance from the trunk of the
tree. The limbs should be cut close up
to the trunk, the cut being made by saw
ing from below upwards at flrsj and then
down from above. In this wray there wdll
be less breakage and a smoother sur
face left. TMsi surface should then be
painted thickly wdth white lead. In this
way the woupd caused by removing the
limb wdll liave^ an opportunity to heal
over without any decay setting in. If the
limb is cut at a distance from the trunk
the nub or stump left is bound to de
cay anti in doing so will leave a hole Into
the trunk of the tree througlf which in
sects readily make their way and which
generally becomes a point of decay In
the tree.
Professor McIntosh was greatly im
pressed by the beautiful trees of the city
and thought it was a pity that the city
wfas not financially able to have an ex
pert forester looking after them all the
time. He will prepare a full report on
the condition of the trees wdth suggestions
for their preservation and the same wdll
be published by the newspapers of the
city for the information of the people.

Want Larger Appropriation.
I The Alabama division of the United

| few days begin an active campaign to
| secure a better pension appropriation for
indigent Confederate soldiers . from the
| next legislature. At a meeting of Camp
1 Holtzclaw last night. Adjutant A. C. Sex
ton introduced a resolution memorializing
the legislature to deal more liberally with
the old soldiers. A copy of the resolutions
will be sent to every camp in the state,
and a definite scheme to attain the needs
of the resolution will be formulated and
pushed.
Anti-Comer Crowd Encouraged.
The anti-Comer contingent around Mont
gomery is feeling greatly encouraged over
the election of three anti-Comer senators
in three of Alabama's most important
senatorial districts. They take this to
mean that Mr. Comer is correspondingly
weak in the three districts. It was known
that Mr. Comer was opposed to Charles
( B. Teasley of Montgomery, Max Ham
burger, Jr. of Mobile and Fred Blackmon
of Calhoun, still these young men won
by handsome majorities. The Comer peo
ple here, and they are not a few, attach
no significance to the nomination of these
three senators.

Lumber and Manufacturing company of

Rheumatic
Pains
“I have suffered terribly with
rheumatism. I took Dr. Miles’
Anti-Pain Pills and they gave me
great relief. I have spells of ter
rible pains in my ribs, and in the
small of my back, and the
Anti-Pain Pills help me right away.
I am now well of the rheumatism
air'd think Anti-Pain Pills done me
more good than all the other medi
cines. I first heard of them
through the following circum
stance that happened at our home
two years ago. A friend, Mrs.
Brown, of Orion, Mich., came to
visit us. She had not been able to
dress herself or comb her own hair
for months. A friend of ours came
in and seeing her suffering offered
her some Dr. Miles’ Anti-Pain
Pills. She laughed at the i lea of
relief from such a source after
doctoring for so long, hut took one
one of the tablets with the remark
that it would at least do her no
harm. She took another that
evening, and the next morning she
was so elated that she went to the
druggist's and got a package and
took them home with her. Re
cently she was here again, and told
us that she continued taking the
pills, and that one box cured her,
and she has not had a symptom of
rheumatism since.”
S. R. FARMER,
332 Third St., Detroit, Mich.
Dr. Miles’ Antl-Psln Pills are sold by
your druggist, who will guarantee that
the first package will benefit. If It
falls, he will return your money.

MINISTERS CULL
ON CITY COUNCIL
Want Sunday Laws Enforced j
at Ensley
GET COPY OF CITY CODE
Samuel Maenza, Aged S Years, Loses
a Finger and Is Painfully In
jured By Explosion of
Dynamite Cap.
Ensley. April ' 19.—(Special.)—'The fea
ture of the regular meeting of the City
Council of Ensley which was held at
the city 'hall tonight was a visit from
the ministers of the city, who petitioned
the council for a more strict enforcement
of the laws against Sunday violations
and also asked that the curfew law Vie
carefully and stringently enforced.
The ministers stated that conditions
were better in Ensley than they had
been but believed that there were yet
a few reforms that should be effected and
that the city and the people would be
better for the more stringent enforcement
of some of the laws against immorality.
They commended the Mayor and mem
bers of the council for the good that
'has been done toward making the city
cleaner and in the enforcement of the
laws of the town, but asked that the
saloons be locked tight on Sunday, that
the drug stores be more carefully re
stricted1 as to the nature of goods put
on sale on the Sabbath, and that some,
j action be taken in reference to allow
| ing fruit stands to operate on Sunday.
Want Curfew Law Enforced.
The ministerial delegation also insisted
that the curfew law be strictly en
forced and that t'he chief of police be
instructed to see to it that all boys
under 16 years of age be kept off tlie
streets unless accompanied by parents or
guardians after night.
After a lengthy discussion of the Sun
| day laws in general the matter was re
I ferred to the police committee, though
t lie council unanimously endorsed t lie
curfew law proposition of the ministers
and instructed the chief to enforce tho
ordinance strictly. At the suggestion of
City Attorney Boyd the ministers’ union
was presented with a copy of the new
code.
One or two protests being tiled against
the paving of the sidewalks on Twen
tieth street from Avenue I to tltj Finney
and Davis addition the ordinance was
! voted down, but another ordinance pro
viding for the paving of Nineteenth street
from Avenue I to the Finney and Davis
addition was adopted. Most of the prop
erty owners on Nineteenth street in tlie
territory named are Italians and have
I asked repeatedly that the improvements
be made.
Want New Contract.
j The water committee and the Mayor
were instructed by the council to confer
with the Birmingham Water Works com
pany in an effort to secure a new con
tract with the company for tiie water
supplied to consumers In this city. While
the water company has a contract with
| tiie city for a term of about thirty years
j and there remains something like twenty
five years yet of the contract it is be
lieved that a new contract can be secured
wltli the company that will be of mutual
benefit to all parties concerned.
The street and improvement committee
asked for more time to prepare a re
port on tiie ordinance granting a franchise
to tiie Birmingham Railway, Light and
Power company for the laying of gas
mains in the city of Ensley. The request
of the committee was granted.
The auditor’s report on t'he books and
accounts of the city officials for tne
1 ast six months was submitted and or
dered printed. One or two slight dis
crepancies wore pointed out in the re
port, which will be corrected at once
by the derelict officials named in the
report.
On motion of Alderman Brigman an
arc light was ordered placed at the new
Carnegie library building at Avenue H
and Eighteenth street.
All members of the council were present
except Alderman Sherman and Alderman
Donaldson.
Injured By Explosion.
Samuel Macnza, tiie 5-ycar-old son of
Louis Macnza. wholesale merchant of this
city lost a linger and suffered painful
mutilation of the hand this morning by
a premature explosion of a dynamite cap.
The little fellow, in some manner unknown
to his parents, got possession of a box
of the caps and had one in his hand
when it was exploded in some way. Tiie
index linger was mutilated and amputa
tion was necessary. The entire hand was
horribly mutilated and tiie little fellow
is suffering great pain.
He was playing on the sidewalk in front
of his father’s store on Avenue E when
the accident occurred and the loud repoit
of tiie explosion created some little ex
citement on the street.
Central Park Property.
The first public sale of lots at Central
park, near FalrvJew, was held today and
great interest was shown in the opening
of this valuable tract. About one-third of
the lots in the property was sold today
and the future sale promises to lie very
active.
The property was recently acquired and
opened for settlement by the Jemison Real
Estate and Insurance company. A num
ber of real estate men attended the sale
of the lots today and their interest in
the buying and the investments made in
Central park by these men of real es
tate experience is considered as a fine,
proof of the value of the investment.
Central park is located on the North
Bessemer car line and not fur from the
South Ensley line. It Is within the 5-cent
car fare to Birmingham and Ensley and
will lie one of the choicest residence sec- j
tions in this section. The county trunk !

Why a Steinway?
The Steinway Piano is a work of art. It stands on
the same high plane as the Stradivarlus violin, yet It
Is sold on a commercial basis. What an opportunity
for music lovers. To he able to secure a lifelong
delight, for only the cost of material and making;
for all of the art element for which a violin lover
pays from $10,(MO lo *20,000 in n Stradivarlus, in a
Steinway, Is absolutely gratis.
If this is not entirely clear to you, stop for a nit*
ment and realize what would happen if for some rea
son no more Steinway pianos were to be made after
toclay, and the secret of their production would be
lost. Every Steinway piano In the world would at
once increase enormously In value and many of them
would command a fabulous sum. If Paderewski, for
example, could not obtain another Steimvay piano, at.
what figure do you suppose he would hold the only
Instrument that is capable of materializing his ex
quisite musical moods?

A FreeTripto the Indian Territory
Are you going to the Indian Terri- i
tory this summer?
If so, why not take advantage of our
free transportation offer and be ready
to go with the crowd in August?
Here is an opportunity that may not
be offered you again in a lifetime.
The Indian Territory Land and Im
migration Company, a corporation of
Spiro, I. T„ is a company organized
with a capital stock of $100,000.nn, and
it is their purpose to bring about tho
most, rapid development possible, in
llie vicinity of Spiro and Bokouhe, In
dian Territory. In order to do so the
company Is making a proposition to
the people of Alabama and other states
east of the Mississippi river, whereby
free transportation from Birmingham
and other cities In the east can be se
cured. and it. Is certain that, thousands
are going to take advantage of this
most liberal offer and go to see that
grand and promising country, which
has been rightfully termed
THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY
The Indian Territory is today the
richest In resources, and offers to those
who are willing to prosper, the great
est opportunities of any country under
Uncle Sam's flag.
You would never regret a trip to the
little city of Bokoshe. It is situated
on a beautiful sloping prairie in the
Choctaw Nation, at the crossing of the
Midland Valley and Fort Smith and
Western railroads, where the country
is new and undeveloped—where the
land is as rich and productive as the
"Isle of Paradise”—and in the midst,
of the Government Coal I,and Segrega
tion, known as the McCnrtain Massey
District. There are thousands of acres
of this segregation around Bokoshe,
and four new mines have recently
been opened within a mile of the town,
and tho coal is of the very best qual
ity. The tide of immigration from
every state In the union is turning to
wards the Indian Territory, and tho
country is being rapidly developed and
the towns are going to lie of even
more rapid growth than the Oklahoma
towns have been.
There are thousands of people who
invested a few dollars in Oklahoma
City, Guthrie, Shawnee, Lawton an.l
almost hundreds of other towns in
Oklahoma, In many of the Tndian Ter
ritory towns, such as Muskogee, South
McAiester, Wilberton, Tulsa, Snlphur.
J'otean and many other towns, and
many of the lots that sold three years
ago for frora $15.00 to $60.00 are worth
today from $1,000.00 to $30,000.00 each,
and In most all these towns the cheap
est lot that can be found today 1s
worth twenty times its cost, to the
original purchaser.
