being located in rural districts, and taxes

His Last Hope Realized
[From the Sentinel (Sebo, Hont.]
In the first opening of Oklahoma to set?
tlers in 188??, the editor of this papei was
among the many seekers after fortune who
made the big race one fine day in April.
During his traveling about anil afterwards
his camping upon his claim, he encoun
I tered much bad water, which, together
with the severe heat, gave him a very
severe diarrhoea which it seemed almost
impossible to check, and along in June the
case became so bad he expected to die.
One day one of his neighbors brought him
one small bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy as a last
hope. A big dose was given him while he
was rolling about on the ground in great
agonv, and in a few minutes the dose whs
repeated. The good effect of the medicine
was soon notice?! and within an hour the
patient was taking his first sound sleep for
a fortnight. ? That one little botlle worked
a complete cure, and he cannot help but
feel grateful. The season for bowel dis?
orders being at hand suggests this item.
