They come quietly and peace
fully to the enrollment places,
making of the enrollment days a
sort of picnic. Most of them,
even the fuliDioous, wear mo
dress of civilization. One of the
men who will become a citizen of
the United States is Zeke Proc
tor, a Cherokee and a bad Indian.
Several years ago he killed seven
men near Westville and shot the
deduty marshal who tried to are
rest him. As a rule tne fullbloods
are docile and even kindly, bnt
they have not the ability or
energy of the halfbreeds, and it is
probable that tbey will soon be

Tribes are the plutocrats of the
American Indian race. What they
will be after they have come into
their full heritage is a problem

Lunchon Ui Town.
TIIE hud waiter prfed a button
in the wall and rose-colored elec
tric bulbs blossomed like ilowers upon
the ceiling, filling tlie great dining
room with soft, still radiance and allow
ing the white tablea Burrounded with
ornate high-backed chair, now elo
quently empty. The air from the av
enue stirred the lace that screened the
open windows and made the blooming
marguerites in great high tubs about
the room move on their fragrant stems.
It was barbarously early for dinner,
but ridiculously late for luncheon, but
it had suited the mood of the man and
the maiden who had met by accident
and had been spending a delightfully
11 nch a peroneal day in town. Ilesides
that there were trains to be taken bark
to a fashionable resort, where break
fasts, luncheons and dinners made such
informal meetings as this quite impos
sible. So, as the girl said, it was all
the more fun. They were not even
dressed fordinner and the head waiter,
who was punctilious in such matters,
giancea somewhat disapprovingly at
the girl's linen shirt waist and her
bamboo hat with a pouf of blue, tilted
down over her brows. The man was a
well-dressed, well-tubbed specimen.
The room was almost deserted excepf
for those two and the occasional cackle
of a waiter was all that broke the si
lence except their own discreetly-lowered
voices. A small Kast Indian man
picturesquely turbaned and robed in
white came toward their table bearing
a chafing dish upon a silver tray from
wnicn he served them noiselessly with
rice and chicken while a waiter poured
wme jnio wo pale greenish classes.
The service had all the dignity and
importance of a rite.
The girl's face took on a look of in
lense satisfaction as she tasted the first
morsel. Ashersun-kiwsed hands moved
over her plate the man thought that
sue was one or the few women who at
gracefully. As a rule, they were too
noncnaiant or too enthusiastic. But
this girl's appetite had all the repret-

Gentleman: I feel it my duty
to express to you my gratitude
for what yonr wonderful remedy
has done for .me. I was com
pletely run down with a complica
tion of stomach disorders. For
ten months I could not work
and was treated by three emi
nent physicians. One insisted
upon operating on me, declaring
nothing short of an operation for
appendicitis would cure me. A
friend induced me to try Dr. cald
well's Syrup Pepsin and from the
first dose I began to improve, and
have gained 25 pounds in weight
and am enjoying the very best of
health. I never tail to say a good
word for Dr. Caldwell's Syrnp
Pepsin for I know what it has
done for me it will do for others.
