To Be Waged by the Liquor Deal-
To Be Lied In Texas and Other
States—Text of Report
New York, June 11—Following
the repoit showing the disastrous
effects to the liquor track) by the
energy of the prohibitionist*
throughout the country, the
National Liquor Dealers' associa-
tion. at its meeting Thursday,
voted $23,000 to hinder prohibi-
tion in Texas and other stales.
The report which roused the
association to action follows :
"Never in the history of the
trade has such a remarkable
change in sentiment taken place
in such a brief time (the pant
year). A year ago there was
general demoralization and deal-
ers wore importuned for money to
help carry doubtful elections, and
in important sections of the
country the opinion was freely
expressed that any effort to stop
the prohibition wave would be
practically useless; it would react
on us ami the demands would in-
crease in geometrical progression.
"There ate case*, of course,
where it i> necessary to use money
in oppo-ing the enactment of
inimical laws, but even in such
cases the money must be used in
a perfectly legitimate way by ex-
posing the inconsistencies and un-
fairness of the proposed legisla-
tion and the widest publicity
given to the arguments against
SIMPLE WAY TO CURE
"Take a Mi-o-na Tablet After
Each Meal," Says Smith
Bros & Co.
With Mi-o-na there is no
bother of guessing at the dose or
using so many spoonfuls or any-
thing of that kiud. This valu-
able remedy for the cure of dys-
pepsia is in tablet form and is the
simplest way to cure the disease.
"Just take one Mi-o-na tablet
after each meal," says Druggists
Smith Bros <&, Co, "and in a few
days you will hud digestion un-
proved, health returning, and
good, solid flesh added." This
remarkable remedy i not a mere
digestive; it mingles with the
food, and is readily assimilated
by the system. It aids digestion
and regulates and strengthens the
whole digestive tract, so that af-
ter its use for a short time
healty and natural action is re-
stored to the stomach and bowels.
No one runs the slightest risk
in purchasing it, tor Smith Bros
Co will give their personal
guarantee with every .r>0c box
they sell to refund the money if
oes not cure.
GOES TO FRISCO.
Gabe Fitzhugh Accepts Position
With Bank There.
Gabe Fitzhugh has gone to
Frisco to accept a position with
the Frisco National bank. Gabe
<* a splendid young man of tine
business qualifications and we
predict for him a successful fu-
ture. W T Brooke of this city
recently accepted the casluership
•of the Frisco bank, but his family
will temain here for some time
' OETS NATIONAL HONORS.
"•Sissy" Bateman, a Collin Coun.
ty Base Ball Player.
Every body knows "Sissy"
Bateman in McKinney. His real
name is Quait Bateman, aon of P
H Bateman of Melissa, one of
the county's most esteemed old
citizens. "Sissy" early exhibited
excellent qualities as a base ball
player. His reputation as such
ooon spread beyond bis locality,
county, state, and now baa ae-
eumed notional propertioas. Last
year he scored highest at batting
in the Texas League and wheu
the season closed, only one error
was recorded against him, Natu-
rally this record attracted atten-
tion nationally and he was sej
cured at a fancy price as first
baseman by tbe "Brewers" of
Milwaukee, members of tbe
American Association. It is re-
ported that Chicago recently of-
fered Milwaukee $25n0 for his
release. His hard batting has
won tor him the titlo of "Home-
lun Bateman" in the North. In
a recent issue the New York
World had the following to say
"Bateman and Clark are two
more players who are very popu-
lar here. The big first baseman
(Bateman) is fielding his position
nicely and is batting aLajoieclip.
He is a terrific batter and uses
good head work at tbe bat. If
the outfielders play out for his
long drives he just taps the bail
over the heads of the infield.
While on the other hand if the
outfielders play in be drives the
bail far over their heuds. Be-
sides being a good first baseman
he is quite a pitcher. He wa
put into pitch after a game was
lost at St Paul. In the five in-
nings that he worked the Saints
wore able to score but once, and
on Decoration day lie went in
against the Kansas City team,
holding them down to six bats
and one run.

If vou feel fagged out, listless

perhaps suffering from the de-
bilitating effects of summer
weather. These symtoms indicate
that a tonic is needed that will
create a Wealthy ippetite, make
digestion perfect, regulate the
bowels and impart natural activi-
ty to the liver. This, Herbine

restorative. H J Freegard, prop

Charles P.Heard, a grocer of
McKinney, was in Dallas yester-
day on business. He says the
business men of Collin county
are in fine feather and that the
farmers have promise of the best
crops they have had in many
years. Already the wheat is be-
ing harvested and is making a
good vield. He siys the teturns
from the wheat and oats will put
the farmers in good shape, and
that the cotton crop, which
promises well, will be almost
clear money.—Dallas News.

Sued By His Doctor
"A doctor here has sued me for
$12.."io which I claimed thras ex-
cessive for a case of cholera mor-
bus," says R. White of Coachella
Cal. "At the trial he praised his
medical skill and medicine. I
asked him if it was not Chamber-
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diar-
rhoea Remedy he used as I had
good reason to believe it was, and
he would not say under oath that
it was not." No doctor could use
a better remedy than this in a case
of cholera morbus, it never fails.
