IMPORTANT MEETING TONIGHT
OF CHAMBER OF COMMERCE!
Cotton Takes a Slump.
Although cotton took a considerable
slump today, going off between 1 and
1:30 p. m. 27 points, our local buyers
oontinued to pay 15.50 for most all that
was brought to Weatherford. The
price was paid without cutting some
of the bales.
Every member of the Chamber of I
Commerce should be present tonight
and hear a talk by Engineer Marshall
on good roads. Good roads is the
most important development for Par-
ker county at this time. It is a ques-
tion that every citizen is or should be
interested in, and the matter of cost [
should be subservient to the results.
The one thing to be considered in I
the building of good roads is, that the
county gets a dollar’s worth of work |
for the dollar expended.

A Summer Laxative and Liver Regu-1
Po-Do-Lax is a liquid laxative—mild |
and effective. It arouses the liver. In-
creases the bile, does not gripe and I
acts as a general tonic to the whole
system. Aids nature to clear and pur-
ify the blood—as a laxative tonic for
summer Po-Do-Lax has no equal. [
What was “good enough for my father
is good enough for me” never applied
with more force than the use of Po-
Do-Lax for the liver. An old time
tried remedy. Get a bottle, take a
dose tonight and see how much better
you feel. At all druggist. Adr. |
The most stirring scenes of a great
maritime disaster are part of the com-
ing Pallas-Paramqunt photoplay, “The
American Beauty," that will be the
attraction at the Princess theater to-
day. An ocean liner is on fire and
as vast clouds of smoke pour forth,
the frantic mobs fight for-safety. Some
struggle for the life belts. Others at-
tempting to rush the lifeboats are forc-
ed back at the pistol’s point by the
ship’s officers. All the ■ signs of a
great marine tragedy are evident and
as the liner is about to go down the
most harrowing scene takes place.

Marshal Brown Loses Barn.
Marshal John R. Brown went home
early Saturday .afternoon and about 6
o’clock decided he would clean out his
chicken house, so he took some coal
oil and sprinkled it around on the
walls to burn it out in order to get rid
of the insects. When he struck a
match to the oil a blaze enveloped the
entire house and before he could do
anything with it the fire got into his
barn which adjoined the henhouse.
The department responded quickly to
the alarm, but there were four tons
of hay in the barn which burned like
powder. His loss is about $200, with
Mr. Brown says he wants to warn
people not to use coal oil in cleaning

L. Waldrom’s House Burglarized.
Some time Saturday an unknown
residence and proceeded to ransack
every drawer or other place where
money might be kept in the hope of
getting a stake. A man was seen to
come out of the place by a neighbor,
but supposed he had a right there and
did not report the matter to Mr. Wal-
drom. The discovery was not made
until some time later. Mr. Waldrom
said all that was missing was some
change which Mrs. Waldrom had about
the place. The party who committed
the deed must have known that Mrs.
Waldrom was staying at the store and
that he was perfectly safe in going
through the premises.
Will Slosh’s Liniment Relieve Pain?
Try it and see—one application will
prove more than a column of claims.

“I have had wonderful relief since I
used Sloan’s Liniment on my knees.
To think after all these years of pain
one application gave me relief. Many
thanks fbr what your remedy has
done for me." Don’t keep on suffering,
apply Sloan’s Liniment where your
pain is and notice how quick you get
relief. Penetrates without rubbing.
