One Year I'
Thursday, March 22.
The commercial club at Miner
al Wells is bu9y "doing things.'
Is it not about time the Weather'
ford Progressive League got
busy "doing something" also?
Palo Pinto is really pretending
that she wants to get in commu-
nication with the world by means
of a railroad. Such a thing
would not do at all. A railway
train might awake the sleepy in-
habitants of the old town, anc
the novelty of living in such
place would be lost.
Present indication are that the
year 1906 will witness more rail
way construction throughout
Texas than ever before in her
history. The "iron horse" is
poking his noBe in almost every
direction in all sections of the
state. Weatherford should do
her full share in adding to the
railroad mileage in Texas this
year, if it is only by the con
struction of the Bridgeport line.
Dr. Cook, of the Department of
Agrioulture, will again visit Gau-
témala to make further experi
ments in boll weevil destruction.
The Dootor will also make a
search for his several colonies of
recalcitrant inseots whioh he
"planted" in Texas more than a
year ago, and whioh have proba
bly returned, ere this, to their
former habitat, by the tunnel
Perhaps the fruit orop will be
able to withstand these repeated
freezes whioh have been striking
us with perverse and distressing
regularity the past week, but the
odds are against it. From pres-
ent indications the man who has
fruit on his table through the
coming season will be a man
with a good bank account; and
the man who has a little fruit to
sell will also be a man with a
good bank account—after he
sells his crop.
The aotion of President Roose-
velt in the fight on the Statehood
bill is questionable, to say the
least. He has again shown that
he not only has a big stick but
the same old teeth, which he is
showing in a menacing manner.
He also once more shows to the
world that the selfish spirit under
ordinary circumstances held in
check, has awakened to the full
depth of its fury. Trouble is
brewing for those Senators who
dare oppose the dictates of their
majesties, President Roosevelt
and Speaker Cannon.
The City Council of Mineral
WellB in regular session last Fri-
day night, granted to W. H. Mc-
Goldrick, representative of the
Federal Gas Company, a charter
for a gas plant to be constructed
in that oity. It is stipulated that
work must be commenced on the
plant within three months and
be oompleted, or ready to furnish
gas to oonsumers within six
months. Does Mineral Wells need
a gas plant any more than Weath-
erford? Can Mineral Wells bet
ter afford a gas plant than Weath-
erford? Would a gas plant be a
better paying institution at Min-
eral Wells than it would be at
Weatherford? Is there any rea-
son why Weatherford should not
also seoure a km plant within
■be months? If not, then let u*
go after it and get it.
of Dr. Pierce'a world-
leaving the great labo-
N. Y„ has printed
upon Its wrapper all the Ingredients
entering Into Its composition. This fact
alone places Dr. Pierce's Family Modi-
clnes in a elm« all by thenuielve . They
cannot be classed with patent or secret,
medicines because they urc neither. This
Is why *o many unprejudiced physicians
^rescribe tin-in and recoinmeud them to
ieir patients. Tliey know what they
are composed of, and that the ingredients
urc those endorsed by the most emineut
Tim further (act that neither Dr.
Pierce's '«olden Medical Discovery, the
stomach tonic, liver invigorator,
heart regulator and blood purifier, nor his
"Favorite Prescription" for weak, over-
worked, broken-down, nervous women,
contain* any alcohol, also entitles them
to a place all by themselves.
Many years ago. Dr. Pierce discovered
that chemically pure glycerine, of proper
strength, is a better solvent and preserv-
ative of the medicinal principles resid-
ing in our Indigenous, or iiatLve, medi-
cinal plants than is alcohol; and, furtlier-
xi,ore. that it possesses valuable medicinal
properties of its own, licing demulcent,
nutritive, antiseptic, and a most eflicient
Neither of the above medicines con-
tains alcohol, or uny harmful, habit-
forming drug, as will be seen from a
glance at the formula printed on each
bottle wrapper. They are safe to use and
potent tí cure.
Not only do physicians prescribe the
above, non-secret medicines largely, but
the most intelligent people employ thein
—people who would not think of using
the ordinary patent, or secret medicines.
Every Ingredient entering into the com-
position of Dr. Pierce's medicines has
the strongest kind of an endorsement
from leading medical writers of the
several schools of practice. No other
medicines put up for like purposes has
any such profcwtlimal endorsement.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure con-
stipation. Constipation is tin- cause of
many diseases. Cure tin cause muí you
cure the disease. One " Pellet" is a gentle
laxative, and two a mild cathartic. Drug-
gists sell them, and iiothiu? i "just us
good." Easy to take as canuy.
Hon. Christopher Blennerhas-
sett Callan of San Antonio, law-
maker and linotyper, refuses to
serve without pay. This noted
Spanish publicist and protector
of the weak, ian't moved by
Judge Terrell's tears. In the
county of Bexar statesmen must
be shown.—Dallas Times Herald.
There is no reason why Mr.
Callan, or any other member of
the House or Senate 9hould
serve the great commonwealth of
Texas free of oharge, and pay
his own expenses, and that, too,
for the purpose of correcting
"bull" for whioh none of them
are responsible. If the matter is
so important that it oannot wait
until next January, then those
who are most interested should
Volunteer to pay the expense of
the extra session. Glory is all
right in its peace, but it won'
pay railroad fare and hotel bills;
and the legislators are not an
overpaid lot of workers, at best.
A Chicago Alderman Owes His Election
to Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
'I can heartily and conscien-
tiously recommend Chamberlain's
Cough remedy for affections of the
throat and lungs," says Hon. John
Shonick, 220 Sonth Peoria Street,
Chicago. "Two years ago during
political campaign, I caught cold
after being overheated, which ir-
ritated my thioat and I was finally
compelled to stop, as I could not
speak aloud. In my extremity a
riend advised me to use Chamber-
ain's Cough Remedy. I took two
doses that afternoon and could not
jelieve my senses when I found
the next mornine the inflammation
lad largely subsided. I took
several doses that day, kept right
on talking through the campaign,
and I thank this medicine that I
won my seat in the council." This
remedy is for sale by all druggists.
A young lady visitor made her
arrival at the home of Carl Cur
tis Wednesday. If she likes the
situation it is quite likely she
will decide to make her home in
Weatherford. Carl is very much
in hope she will be pleased, since
he very unselfishly does not
wish the pleasure all to be his.
WHITE MELON SEED.
Improved Pride of Texas, or
Means' Delicious Melon, awarded
medal at St. Louis World's Fair
and pronounced by judges as being
a melon of exceptional fine quality.
This high bred delicious melon has
less number of seeds than any
known variety. Exterior color is
light green, mottled or gray, long
oval shape. The flesh is scarlet,
very firm and crisp texture. Vines
grow thrifty and are very prolific,
bearing melons of uniform size.
Rind is thin, but tough, and will
stand shipping to distant markets.

ers. H. J. Bradfish, Weatherford,

Champion Liniment for Rheumatism.
Chas. Drake, a mail carrier at
Chapinville, Conn., says: "Cham-
berlain's Pain Balm is the champion
of all liniments. The past year I
was troubled a great deal with
rheumatism in my shoulder. After
trying several cures the store-
keeper here recommended this
remedy and it completely cured
me." There is no use of anyone
suffering from that painful ailment
when this liniment can be obtained
for a small sum. One application
gives prompt relief and its con-
tinued use for a short time will
produce a permanent ctfre. For
sale by all druggists.
Matter For Congratulation.
County Attorney Wilson and
Assistant County Attorney Moy-
ers are feeling good, and proper-
ly so, upon the successful result
of their efforts in prosecuting
looal option law violators. Out
of a total of ten cases which
oame on for tria^in CpuntyJ|
Court this week, nine convictions
were secured. This shows that
these officials had thoroughly
worked up the evidenoe and had
gone into the proseoutíon fully
prepared to sustain the charges
made, T}he best citizens of
Weatherford and Parker county
will join the Herald in extending
congratulations to these worthy
officials upon the result of their
untiring efforts and desire to
uphold the law and the dignity
of our city and county.
"The Armless Man"
Said, "It wasn't money he wanted
)Ut somebody to scratch his back."
There are many strong arms and
willing hands that have that same
yearning. Hunt's Cure will make
jack scratching or anv other old
scratching totally unnecessary. It
knocks out any itching sensation
that ever happened, and It does it
right now. One application re-

Cleburne Light Ordinance
Cleburne. Texas, Maroh 17.—
The city counoil, at its regular
session last night, passed the
eleotrio light and power ordinano*
on third and final reading, by 1
vote of four to three.
The ordinance as passed com
prises a reduotion in oharges o
the oompany of something more
than 25 per cent, the base rate
provided in the ordinanoe being
15 oents per kilo-watt hour as
against the prevaüing rate of 20
cents. The ordinance also pro
vides a maximum rate of 8 cents
per kilo-watt hour for power anc
requires all consumers to go qn a
meter. It provides that a deposit
of $5 may be required by the
company for installing cj-ampere
meters against $15 as heretofore
charged, ¿.and $7.50 for meters
above that capacity, against $18.
It also establishes a 15 per cent,
discount on all bills of $10 and
less, a 20 per cent discount on
bills of $25 or over $10, ana a 33
1-3 per cent discount on all bills
above $25, all discounts being
given only when consumer settles
his aooount before the 5th of the
The provisions of the ordinanoe
as passed do not meet the full
endorsement of either the electric
light people or of the complain
ing citizens, but have been form
ally accepted by the representa
tives of the company, who pledge
themselves to live up to them.
It is not a full relief to the citi
zens, but is a long step toward
what was asked, and is what was
considered by the council after
full invesfigation, to be a fair
and equitable adjustment of the
charges so that no injuries might
be done either side.

Simmons Liver Purifier is the
most valuable remedy I ever tried
for Constipation and Disordered

but does not gripe like most reme-

tunity occurs. Price 25c.
