Wife of W. J. Ducken Alarmed Over His Disappearance in Indian Territory. Little Rock, Aug. 13. -W. J. Ducken, a well known stock dealer of Little Rock, has myste teriously disappeared from the Indian Territory and no trace whatever can be found of him. His wife placed the matter in the hands of United States Mar shal A. S. Fowler, who is in cor respondence witn the authorities in the territory. He received a letter today from Deputy Mar shal J. L. O’Briant at Wagoner in which O’Briant says: “I have just returned from Inola and Claremore, where I nau Deen m searcn oi vv. a. Ducken. At Inola I learned that he was there on the 12th of July. He came there on the morning train from Claremore in company with J. H. Fisher, a cattle man who resides in Clare more. “He went from Wagoner to Clar emore, as that train does not stop at Inola,and returned with Fisher' on the south-bound train that stops at all stations. At Inola Ducken and Fisher got a team and drove to where Fisher’s cat tle are and returned to Inola about o p. m., and from that time on the Inola people do not know anything about them. I am satisfied that nothing has happened to Mr. Ducken in this vicinity or some one would have heard of it by this time. He may be sick somewhere and do#t want to alarm his family. I am acquainted with all the deputies in this and the district north of me, and as soon as 1 can locate the direction he started I will notify them, and will also keep you posted in the meantime.’’ Knows Not of Report.

Co. 92-3t BREAKING INTO RANKS Of Gang of Horse Thieves Operating In Counties Along Lower V>hite. Des Arr\ Aug. 12. —For some time past a gang of horse thieves has been operating in the coun ties of Lee, Woodruff and F-in sett and have done their work so skillfully as to render all efforts to catch them futne. Early in the week the sheriff of Lee county telephoned Sheriff Hodges of this (Prairie) county and gave him a detailed descrip tion of several horses and mules which had been stolen. Sheriff Hodges, assisted by ex-Sheriff Reinhardt, located two horses and a mule answering the de scription given and arrested Tom Lynn. Later he arrested Orris B. Lynn, his brother. Both are in jail charged with horse steal ing. Sheriff Hodges still holds the stock, awaiting their identifica tion by the owners. One of the horses, it is claimed, was stolen from Poinsett and the other in Lee county. The Lynn boy? lived in this neighborhood several years ago, but originally came from Mis souri. They went from here to Oklahoma or Indian Territory, but returned two or three years ago, buying land five miles north of here and engaging in farm ing. They were suspected by the sheriff because of their fre quent deals in horses. Their mother lives in Des Arc and an other brother lives five miles east of here. He bears an ex cellent reputation and no sus picion attaches to him whatever. Tom Lynn is married. It is not considered likely that any other arrests will be made here, but it is thought probable that arrests may follow at the other end of the line. It is the belief of the officers that east of here there are confederates of the gang which has been so ex tensively operating. It is not thought that the Pat Lacey gang is connected with these recent thefts of stock. ANOTHER SUSPECT JAILED. Later: Sheriff Hodges landed another suspect in jail tonight. Frank Holdup, a young man from Woodruff county, presented him self to the sheriff with papers signed with the name of the sheriff of Lee county purporting to establish the innocence and 'secure the release of 0. B. Lynn, one of the men in jail. The Lee county sheriff was wired and replied that the papers were forgeries. Holdup was wanted there for horse stealing. He was thereupon locked up. Resigns Pastorate. Rev. H. M. Long, who has been the faithful pastor of the Baptist church in this city for the past several months, ten dered his resignation at the close of the morning service Sunday. Mr. Long came to Newport from Mississippi several months ago, and has been considered one of the ablest ministers that has had charge of this work, and his efforts have been appreciated by his people, and the church pros pered, there being no friction whatever between pastor and people, the extremely bad health of Mr. Long’s family being the only cause of the resignation, which does not take effect until November 1.

As we are now threatened with another visitation of the dreaded yellow fever it is well to remem ber the experiences of the Hast occasion. In all sections where yellow fever made its appear ance it will be recalled that per sons who kept their stomach, liver and bowels strong and active were not affected by the disease; while others apparently healthy were stricken down. These latter were all more or less habitually constipated, bilious or victims of bad digestion; as a re sult the blood became impure and the vital organs were unable to resist the deadly fever germs. Now is the time to prepare for what is to follow. Get your fam ily and yourself in shape to re sist the disease. You don’t know when you are exposed to it; every man you meet may be affected, and if you put your preparations off from day to day you may be too late. The sensi ble course is to begin at once taking Prickly Ash Bitters, that mowTolAnc Vfltrill £1 t flY* H (1 b’ood purifier. Use it regularly every day. Half a wine-glassful each morning after breakfast _ will keep your bowels open and . healthy; it will also strengthen the stomach and digestion, purify the blood and by stimulating the liver and kidneys all bile and uric acid impurities will be drivetL-' 't of the body. In short, it puts the system in perfect | order. Remember 1898. That ! was a record year for Prickly Ash Bitters. In the sections where it was used the most there were fewest cases of fever. You connot do better in this hour of danger than to make use of the means which experience has proven to be the best for fight ing off this terrible scourge. 78 OR. CHAS. E.
