4 OKLAHOMA'S FIRST LNCHINJ. Farmer Hanged by l'oe of Cattle men Warning to Other. Woodward, O. T, May 14. Mr. J. L. Chandler, a resident of loland, Day county, was taken Irom his home by a posse of cat tlemen and hanged. The lynch ing party was composed of Day county cattlemen. Thoro has been trouble be tween the farmers and cattle men of Day county for some-t-rae. During the paet few weeks the trouble ha been growing graver and many cattle hare died of poiaoned water. Mr Chandler waa anapected of bomg one of the prty who has been poisoning the water and be was lynched m a ararnin U others. Officer! are on the trail of the lynching party and they will sooner or later be run to earth and receive the full penalty of the law for their crime. This is the flrat lynching that has occurred in Oklahoma since its organization as a territory. . The question originatd over the question of free range, the cattlemen being tierce for it and the furrnors not wanting it The land in western Oklahoma is still subject to homestead entry and many a small farmer lias had all his crop eaton up by the battlo nnd has had no course of redress, not having any way of paying the cost of a suit in tho courts. It has retarded the sottloment of some of the western counties to a gret extent. A poor man wh" wanted a home in some of those counties has often been told to move on by interested parties who wanted tho range, and the cattlemen have been very negligent about trying to protect the farmers' crop by keeping their cattle in hand. The act of the legislature in 1HM in granting free range west of range 11, also provided that a herd law could be voted upon at election, and in their effort to i?at these elections the will of the farmers has been thwarted br the cattlemeu until the tnuble baa assumed the propor tion of a fued. the farmer being arrayed against the cattlemen, and the end is not yet in sight.

"Of nil the tributes paid the President of the United States in the course of bis tour of the country none has been so eloquent, asd none other ean b. as that paid him by one woman. That woman is his wife," says the At lanta CooJtitutioa. And it is even so. At New Orleans she, for the flret time, allowed herself to be interviewed. It eonld hardly be called an interview, however, for it was bnt the expression of as opinion cawally given : but it is doubtful if anything ever raid ef the president could brine him quite ai close to all the people as this from bis wife: "Do yon know Major McKin leyf" she asked. "Ah. no one ean know him, became to appre ciate him one mnut know him as I do. And I am not speaking now of Major McRinley e the president. I am speaking of him as my boa-band- If any one could know what it is to bare a wife nick, com plaining, always an invalid for twenty-ne years, seldom a day well, and yet never a word of nn kindness has ever passed his line; be is just the same tender, thought fnl, kind gentleman I knew when first he came and sought my band. "I know him because I am bis wife, and it is my proudest pleas ure to say this, not because he is the President, but because he is my hntland. "I wish that I could have seen him yesterday; I love to see him among the people whom he seeks to serve so faithfully. Hut I read his speeches this morning. I read all his speeches.

President McKinley has made for himself quite a repntation for happy little speeches, bnt he must look to his laurels. This little tilk of his wife is well np with the very best things he has said.

SGROFULfl AND ITS AWFUL HORRORS CTJHED BY Johnston's Sarsaparilla QUART BOTTLES. .. MOST WOyPKUFUL CURE. A Rranil Old Lady Give Her Kxperlence. Mrs. Thankful Orilla Ilurd lives In tho beautiful village of Brighton, Livingston Co., Jllcb. Tbls venerable and highly respected lady was born la the year 1S12, the year of the great war, In Hebron. Washington Co., New York. She came to Michigan lu 1&10, tho year of "Tippecanoe and Tyler too." All her faculties ore excellently preserved, nnd possessing a very re tentive memory, her mind Is full of Interesting reminiscences of her early life, of tho early days of the State of Michigan and the Interesting and re markable people she hag met, and the stirring events of which she was a wit ness. Hut nothing In her varied nnd manifold recollections are more mar velous and worthy of attention than aro her experiences In the use of JOHNSTON'S SAIISAPAMLLA. Mrs. Hurd Inherited a tendency and pre disposition to scrofula, that terribly destructive blood tnlnt which has cursed and Is cursing the lives or thousands nnd marking thousands more as vic tims of the death angel. Transmitted from generation to generation, It Is found In neary every family in one form or nnother. It may make its ap pearance In dreadful running sores, In unsightly swellings In the neck or goitre, or In eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, It may be known as catarrh In ho head, or developing In tho lungs It may be, and often Is, tho prime cause or consumption. Speaking of her case, Mrs. Hurd says: "I was troubled for many years with a bad skin disease. My arras nnj limbs would break out In a mass of sores, discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and became very unslgh.ly ln appearance. My body wns covered with scrofulous eruptions.. My eyes were also greatly Inflamed nnj weakened, and they pained mo very much. My blood was In a very bad condition and my head nelied severely at frequent Intervals, and I had no appetite. I had sores also In my ears. I was In n ralsernblo condition, I had tried every remedy that had been rccom monded, nnd doctor after doctor had failed. One of tho best physicians In the state told me 1 must dlo of scrofulous consumptlpn, as Internal abcesses were beginning to form. I nt length was told of Dr. Johnston, of Dotrolt. nud his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried a bottle, more as nn experiment than any thing else, ns I had ho faith In It, nnd greatly to my ngroeablo surprise. I began to grow better. You can be sure I kept on taking It. I took a (Treat many bottles. But I steadily Improve, until I became entirely well. All tho sores healed up, all tho bad symptomi disappeared. 1 gained perfect health, "and I havo never been troubled with scrofula sluco. Of course nn o'd lads of 63 years Is not n young woman, but I have had remarkably good health since then, nnd I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S SAIISAPARILLA Is tho greatest blood purltler and tho best medicine In tho wldo world, both for ecrofuln nnd ns n spring medicine."
