A Etaty We Overlook Do You THIRTY YEARS AGO Hugh Yates spent Sunday and Monday at home. He is a cadet at Ouachita Colleger Arkndelphia. A man, weighing 364 pounds attracted much attention on the streets Monday, especially when it was learned that he weighed just 100 pounds more than "Pappy" Kyle. TEN YEARS AGO A little daughter arrived yesterday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Kenney in this city. Mr. and Mrs. T. Honey cutt 'have returned, from their honeymoon and are erecting a nett home on West Fourth street. Mrs. George Robison has as her gftesVillss Either Stuart, of Columbus.

Prophecies of Doom makes much more eerie reading than those casual forecasts scientists made so often of impending and ines- ;., capable doom for the human race. The latest comes from ,jl'. l the geologists, one of whom used a column'in a New York & paper the other day to announce that we shall have a new ice i' J? ag9 in. «o more than 10,000 years. ~'V Aa ''' >Tbings u o£ this sort are never really disturbing.

We can't make ourselves 'worry.apouift, , But.it,does make eerie reading, this description of slowly accumulating masses of ice, up on the top of the globe, piling up silently and relentlessly, century after century, waiting tp slide down over the bulge of the earth and depopulate Europe and Jforjh America. < ' ,, The'last ice age, for instance, slid a mile-high glacier ^o'ng the ajte'of wrote is tyw Ney York City, The next one •5 * probably wfll'do the same; The-Great Lakes will vanish; the & mountains of Tennessee will be .frost-bound and desolate with f i, a thoaand years of winter, a,nd the climate of Florida will H ;be like Labrador's climate today, '-*, t' " ! ', • Nature, evidently, believes in pushing a wet sponge across the slate every so often. All that we have and all that , we have done wiH vanish, without a trace, a few score of centuries henoe. Then the glaciers will retreat, and a new North American continent will be ready for experiments in ei,¥iiizatioivbuilding by some new groUp of restless adven- . turers from around the equator. |^ • , .There is a faseinatiqn to that sort of picture, somehow ^v"A propel amount of humility is good for us, and that is Woman and Man Held in McAlester Death M'ALESTER, 'Okla.— (ff>)— A former McAlester policeman and a young woman were held late Thursday for investigation n the death of Sam Houston Wllis, about 25, found dead rom poisoning at a tourist camp here early Thursday, Willis was said to be soldier qn furlough from San Anonio.

An old friend recommended that I try Black-Praught for this. I found it an excellent medicine and have used it ever since, when I needed anything for constipation. I find a small dose, taken occasionally, keeps me in good shape." This old, weU'teiown, reliable laxative medicine costs only one cent» gage.
