Hamilton Thoroughly De scribes the Early History of Oklahoma and Compares it with Other Commonwealths - Oklahoma City, Jan., 20, 1908 To begin with the name itself Oklahoma, which readily will be conceded as of Indian origin, it is variously interpreted as, The ILand of the Fair God, The Land Beautiful, The Red. Nation. The flatter, we think, will have to be ruled out utterly, as Oklahoma, that is the original Oklahoma, is the only portion of the entire Indian Territory that was never the home of the Red Nation. The soil in these parts is, in color, a decided red, and without any doubt this fact gives rise to the name. Red to the Indian is beautiful and with the natural beauty of the region it is easy to reach the notion of The Fair God's Land. Regret has been .expressed tha...

DAT WE GATHERED GOLDENROD A day of glancing arrow-points. Yet swathed in shadows, olive-deep, When curling leaves were shaken down And drifted in a pungent heap ; When scarlet flowers fell asleep, Each in a filmy pillow-pod, And all the world was half adream The day we gathered goldenrod. So still the air, in passing by A rick of gathered corn we heard A harvest spider's startled flight Wherejn a yellow blade was stirred. Some late and lingering autumn bird Sang low, bis lazy head anod ; No haste nor harshness seemed to mar The day wc gathered goldenrod. Wild brambles trailed a thorny web ; The sumach's lighthouse towered high And damson plums made purple spots In orchards that we wandered by. A light was in the autumn sky ; A warmth was in the autumn sod ; Deep autumn turquois tipped the heights, The day we gathered goldenrod. Our ways have somehow slipped apart Since then, and you would think strange The trifles of one idle day Arise through every bitter change And follow me in li...

You got out where the woods were dense And everything was strange ; You had a nameless dread of what Lay far beyond the range. And so you turned your tearful face To the old qhimney stack ; And how much more secure" you felt When you were going back. Again, when you were in your teens, Headstrong, as boys will be, IWhen you and your stern parents failed At something to agree, You packed up in a huff and left, For where, you had no ken, Declaring you would ne'er return Beneath their roof again. But by and by you softened down And thought of home and friends, And, rushing back at close of day, You sought to make amends. Ah ! friends are friends, and home is home, In palace, cot or shack ; And though, somet...

i HELPFUL 28 You won't tell your family doctor the whole story about your private illness you are too modest. You need not be afraid to tell Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass., the things you could not explain to the doctor. Your letter will be held in the strictest confidence. From her vast correspondence with sick women during the past thirty years she may have gained the very knowledge that will elp your case. Such letters as the following, from grateful women, establish beyond a doubt the power of LYDIA EiPINKHAM'S VEGETABLE COMPOUND to conquer all female diseases. Mrs. Norman R. Barndt, of Allentown, Pa., writes: "Ever since I was sixteen years of age I had suffered from an organic derangement and female weakness; in consequence I had dreadful headaches and was extremely nervous.
