Stop Night Coughing
This Simple Way
People who have persistent, an-
noying conk 1"'nw." spells at night, anj
v ho through htss of valuable sleep
are weakening their systems and
laying tlwrnsvlves op. n to dangerous
infections, cmn stop their distressing
trouble promptly bv a very simple
trentnnpnt. Hundreds who have
hardly been able to rest at all for
coughing, have gotten their full
liiglUs sleep the very lirst time they
tiled It.
The treatment is based on a re-
markable prescription known as Dr.
King's New Discovery for Coughs.
You simply take ft teaspoonful at
night before retiring and hold it in
jour throat for 15 or 2o seconds b"-
lore swallowing it, without follow-
ing with water. The prescription
has a double action. It not only
soothes and heals soreness ami irri-
tation, but it quickly loosens and .
removes the phlegm and congestion
which aro the direct came of th«
coughing. The result is that you
usually sleep as soundly as a babe
the very first night, and the entire
cough condition goes in a very short
The prescription is highly recom-
mended for coughs, chest colds,
hoarseness nnd bronchitis, and is
wonderful for chlldren'H coughs and
spasmodic croup—no harmful drugs.
Kconomical, too, as the dose Is only
one teaspoonful. It is on sale at all
good druggists. Ask for

Author of Measure Tells of Its Aims
and Long Fight to End.
Austin, Texas, March 20.—Repre-
sentative Claude Teer of Grander, au-
i thor of the bill to relocate the prisojri (
' system in Central Texas and give It
i a thorough reorganization which fin-
ally pased Wednesday, matfle the fol-
lowing statement with reference to
the measure and the efforts to move
the prison headquarters from-South
"Now that the House and Senate
have finally passed the penitentiary
relocating bill, I am delighted to say
that it is a result of six years of
study and work on the part of many
members of the Legislature, the va-
rious clubs and public-spirited citizens
of this State, who have made a study
of the penitentiary problems of Tex-
Within Easy Reach.
"Six years ago the question was
agitated and the Legislature, along
with o'ther citizens of this state, de-
cided that the present system with
its farms scattered from one side of
the State to the other, disconnected
obsolete in all of its methods and op-
erations, should be abolished and
moved to the center of the State and
establish a modern, centralized sys-
tem in a more stable country where it
would be accessible from the stand-
point of railroad and highway accom-
modations; also they realized that to
establish a new penitentiary system
which will probably endure for the
next 150 years, that it should be
placed 'R'fiVre it would be within easy
reach of all the people of this State,
and especially the Legislature and the
Governor and other State officials
who are charged with the administra-
tion of prison laws, and who are re-
sponsible for the nfairs of the prison
system. -
"Four years ago the Legislature
passed a relocating bill which provid-
ed that a commission, composed ot
the Governor, Land Commissioner and
the Attorney General, should get op-
tions and recommend back to the Leg-
islature a new location, but two of
the commission declined to make any
recommendations back to the Thirty-
Eighth Legislature, therefore the law
became inoperative.
"Two years ago the Legislature au-
j thorized a legislative investigation for
j the purpose of determining whether
I or not it was proper and feasible to
relocate the system. This committee
was composed of five members of the
House, five members of the Senate,
the Lieutenant Governor, the speaker
of the Housei and three citizens of
this State, who were Mrs. W. C. Mar-
tin of Dallai, Lee Simmons of Sher-
man and Dr. Blalock of Woodlawn.
That committee approved the reloca-
tion of the system and urged that it
be done, but for the lack of time, did
not put through a law as has been
| done in this the Thirty-Ninth Legls-
| lature.
"Also the Thirty-Eighth Legisla-
ture authorized the committee on pris-
ons and prison labor to make a com-
plete suvey of the physical condition
of prisoners, and the feasibility of
moving the system.
Indorsed by People.
"After two years of constant work
and study that committee, composed
of some fifty or seventy-five public-
spirited citizens of this State, indors-
ed and recommended the removal and
centralization of the penitentiary sys-
tem. The people of Texas have con-
sistently, almost without exception,
indorsed and supported this great for-
ward movement which is now within
the reach of the people of this state,
provided it receives the indorsement
of the present Governor.
"On Thursday we expect to go be-
fore the Governor and attempt to
show her the merits of this proposed
law* and ask that she approve the
"It is evident that the people of
Texas are ready to embrace this great
forward movement and they
will appreciate the efforts of those
in authority should they see fit to en-
courage and carry out the mandates
of this law.
"The bill creates a relocation com-
mission, composed of the Governor,
Lieutenant Governor, Attorney Gen-
eral, Land Commissioner and speaker
of the House, whose duty it shall be
to have full authority arttf "power to
to carry out the provisions of this
law, which seems to locate the prison
system somewhere between Hays and
Hill Counties, and between Johnson
and Burleson Counties.
"If this bill should become a law I
feel that it will be a Messing to ttie
peonle of the Statn, jtnd r«mow* t\w
agitation and recurring scandal that
have be*n brought to our attention for
the last several years, and as author
fnf t>^s biM.l wi«h to thank every-
one who contributed ^o its success, a.t
it is cumulative of the efforts of
thousands of people, and no one mu
is r»«non»«i6le or due the credit for the
passage of this measure."
One of the greatest objections to
the most of our old baby chick for-
mulae was that they all required oat-
meal, pin head oats, boiled eggs and
other things that were either hard to
get or impracticable to use. Bur,
thanks to our research departments,
we have at last a perfect chick ra-
tion that contains common foods.
The University of Wisconsin recom-
mends the following ration:
Yellow corn meal 801b
Gray wheat shorts 201b
Meat scraps 10 lb
Oyster shells, (fine) 5 lb
Salt 1 lb
If you have all the skim milk that
the baby chicks can drink, you may
leave out the meat scraps. You
should include, however, 5 pounds of
bone meal. '
You do not need any scratch feed
with this ration for the first week.
Feed the chicks during this time five
times daily. Give them what they will
eat in about thirty minutes, and then
remove the hopper from the pen. Af-
ter the chicks are about eight or ten
days old you may feed a scratch ra-
tion such as some of the usual baby
chick commercial scratch feeds, or
you may feed them finely cracked yel-
low corn. You may give them this
scratch three times each day, giving
them all they will eat at night.
If the chicks tend to show any di-
gestive disorders as a result of using
this feed, you may add one-third of
! the total amount of wheat bran. This
will make the feed somewhat bulkier
J and will also be of value in elimina-
iting the digestive disorders.
I. After three weeks you may leave
I the mash hopper open before them
j all the time. At this time you may
j give, them scratch feed only twice
j each day. Get them out on the green
| grass and in the sunshine as soon as
I the weather will permit.
I When the chicks have reached the
broiler stage you may change the
ration to the following:
Yellow corn meal 50 lb
Wheat bran „...20 lb
Wheat shorts . 20 lb
Meat scraps 10 lb
Salt 1 lb
Cracked corn 2 pans
Whole wheat 1 part
Or, cracked corn.
| These rations contain all the pro-
tein, carbonhydrates and vltamines
that the growing chicks need.—Exten-
