8 TBE lOLA JUjjmm mm "DNSGiuMiiir ; WEDNESDAY iE^E: •a; --.-c i•• "SS FBOBE COMHIITK^S^T^^ TO CTEHOPSE OimD SHARE OF STAIfBABD OIL WHEN XT WAS PISSOLTED. Ha Rreeeired Orer Tblrtf CerUfiemtes He BeeeiTed OTCT Thirty Certlfieates tioMl Shares. There 1 B at least one Standard oil Btockbolder "in our midst" and he is trying these days to figure out where he stands now that the courts have - dissolved the "Oil Trust," and "unscrambled" It into its various ingred- ^ lents.. His one share of stock In the company, for which ho pald^ome- ~ thins over |600. largely out df curiosity, has been rent asunder as thoroughly as a stick of dynamite could have done it and yesterday he received n large invoice of certificates of stock -In the thirty odd subsidiary concerns which went to make up the Standard. The dissolution certainly entailed a largfe amount of clerical work. By some process it was discovered that ' the number 983,3S3 was the least common multiple into which all the shares could be divided, a|id the lola man has thirty-one certificates, ea<fli for a fractional share of stock. In each case the lower fraction of the figure being 983,3S3. For instance, he owns 319,993-983,383 of a share of Union Tank Line stock. Here is the list of\companles in which ha now finds himself a stockholder At least to the amount of a fractional share: Atlantic Refining Company. Bome-Scrymser Company. Buckeye Pipeline Company. Sheseborough Mfg. Company. Colonial Oil Company. Continental Oil Company. Crescent Pipeline Company. Cumberland Pipeline Company. - Eureka Pipeline Company, (preferred and common). Indiana Pipeline Company. Kational Transit Company. New York Transit Company. Northern Pipeline Company. Ohio Oil Company.' Prairie Oil & Gas Company. Solar Refining Company, Southern Pipeline Company. South Penn Oil Company. Southwest Pennsylvania Pipclinea Standard Oil (California). Standard Oil (Indiana). _ Standard Oil (Kansas). Standard Oil (Kentucky). Standard Oil (Nebraska). . Standard Oil (New York). Standard Oil (Ohio). Swan & Finch Company. Union Tank Line Company. - Vacuum Oil Company. Washington Oil Company. Watcrs-Plcrce Oil Company. Anglo-American Oil (Toiopany. In the last named company, the stockholder draws a full shore and he also retains a full %hare of the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey. The Anglo-American is the British branch of the Standard. . The smallest fractional share in t any company is 994-983.383rd8 of a share of the Swan & Finch company. No two fractions are alike, and all are expressed in thirds of a share as indicated by the figures. In time the •tockholder should receive small dividends from each of the stocks making a total equal to the old Standard dividend, - but it is not unlikely that divided, some of the companies will make less money, while others may make more. ' Of coarse, buying the old stock at $600, the lola man never expected nor ever drew^more than a very modest dividend on his money. The men who figured their interest at 40 to 60 per cent were holders of the original $100 , sharps, paying dividends that made them sell at |G00. CAUSE FOB ALARM. Lo^s of Appetite or Diiitress After Eatine a Sympiom That Should Not Be Disregarded. Appetite is just a natural desire for food. . Loss of appetite or stomach distress after eating indicate indigestion or dyspepsia. Over-eating is a habit very dangerous to a person's good general health. It is not what you eat but what you digest and assimilate that does yon good. Some of the strongest, heaviest «nd healthiest persons are moderate eaters. • There is nothing that will cause .more trouble than a disordered stomach and many i>eople dally contract serious maladies simply through disregard or abuse of the stomach. We urge all In lola who suffer from any stomach derangement, indigestion or dyspepsia, whether acute or chronic to try Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets .with tbd distinct understanding that we will refund their money without <luestlon or formality, if after reasonable use of this medicine, they are not perfectly satisfied with the results. We.honestly believe them to be without equal. They give very prompt relief, aiding to neutralize the gastric jnloes, Rtrengthen the digestive organs, to regulate the bowels. and thus to promote perfect nutrition and erad icatfl all unhealthy symptoms. We urge you to try a 25c. box of Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets, which gives IS days' treatment At the end of that time your money will be returned -to you if you are not satisfied. Of course, in chronic cases length of treatment varies.. For such cases, we have two large blzes, which sell for 60c. and $1.00. Remember you can obtain )texall Remedies in this community only at our store—^The Rexall Store. Burrril's Drug Store, West Side Square. v. . Manhattan Mercury: "It Is 3,000 miles from ocean to ocean. It will cost $5,000 a mile to build a rock road Jn th* average place thrpughout the "United States. The cott of a rock road fro mocean to oce^n will be $15.000.000. Fifteen miUion dollars Is the cost of biiilding and equipping a mod- -em warship."" Suppose we cut out the next warship and build a rock road from ocean to ocean. It will cost no more to maintain it after it«48 built and It will not wear out qpd have to te sold for - Junk^n tenor fifteen ye^lr^." / ^„J,: Washington, D. C, Dec. 6.—Twenty-five investigation committees who have during the past few months been investigating as many disputed subjects will report to the House of Representatives during the opening days of Congress. Bitter party strife is sure to be engendered when these reports come up for debate. In many cases additional appropriations will be necessary If the work is to be continued to a point where they will be able to render as complete a report a& they would like. In some of these cases It is stated on good authority that the appropriations, will not be forthcoming and that the partial reports will have to be the end of the committee's work. A fight is on in Uie SteCl Trust investigation committeo under Chairman Stanley, and Representative Martin Littleton with others contends that this Investigation which has brought forth so many imi>ortant disclosures during the last two|Weeks!ia utterly f-without excuse for existence; because of the fact that the} Fedejaii: court has taken up the prosecution; >md therefore the committee] is of bo avail. } Other special committees incli^de the, Graham committee, investigating tbe'aaftirs pertaining to the Conip4 troller Bay in Alaska; and the Hardwick Committee, investigating lihe Sugar. Try t. SPEGMLn IS PBEAGHERS EBRATir MR. CAVAXEY TISITED IX CUERBYT .ILE, TOO. AMERirA>- IX PER .SI .V MAY I 'REt'IPITATE WAR Arrested at Gamett, He Asked Rev. Coombs to Ask Governor to Call Oat the MlllUa. That erratic traveler, Cavaney, of whom the Register told yesterday as having been locked up in Garnctt for tactics which merely developed a cool rebuff here, seems to have caused something of a stir at Cherryvale before he came here; When in Cherryvale, he called upon Rev. E;. L. Coomb, who Is known here, and the Cherryvale Journal says: This afternoon. Mr. Coombs received a telephone message from the sbeflft at Garnctt. asking him what he knew about J. B. Cavaney. Mr." Coombs.,could not remember any such roan until the sheritr told bim that the man claimed to have large mine holdings. Then it flashed over the Presbyterian minister that two weeks ago he had ridden to Cherryvale from Chanute with a stranger who paced back and forth in one car and told him he had fallen heir to one-fourth of $1,800,000 and that lie had invested In mines out west He told him that Charley Mitchell and Leo Veeder would probably also Invest and that he would be glad to help Mr. Coombs become a millionaire by letting him in on the ground floor. He evidently took a great fancy to the minister who merely looked upon him as a man of gp-eat culture and "education who had become "batty" from some cause. It developed however, today, that the man had been doing cement work J here on the new laundry building and went to Gamett a day or two ago, where he became violently insane and was taken to jail. Yesterday he called for a telegraph blank arid made out a message to Mr. Coaa^a, telling bim to wire Governor Stnbbs to send a company of militia immediately to Gamett to release him from jail, where he was held without any charge against him. Instead the sheriff phoned Mr. Coombs. No one here seems to know of him before he appeared in town. Several business men have his cards however, which read: J. B. CAVANEY.

OfflcUlly Closed (he 1»I1 Season This Afternoon. The summer season of 1911 was formally closdd in lola today, when Bunce, the "shine" and handy man, wheeled the benches into winter quarters in the court house. The "green gits back in the trees and the sun comes out and stays" in the spring, and tbe Weather Bureau makes official declaration that "spring has come" but that does not open the summer season. Nor does the placing of the frost upon the pumpkin and the fodder in the shocjc*' end the summer. The., migration of the park benches from the store room to the park and back again is lola's real guide to the seasons. Dearly beloved: Winter has come! Barbarons Tennessee Crime. <Bv th» Associated Press) Memphis, Ten., Dec. 6.—Two neg­ roes and a young negress were burned to death by a mob- of white land tenants who objected to negro neit^bors at Savannah, Tenn. Race hatred is at white heat and more trouble is feared. The three negroes "were traveling to a Gin with a load of seed cotton. They were waylaid and.tied to a wag-, on load of cotton it Is said, and the mab, after building a fire beneath the wagon,' stood, guard until the negroes were cremated.- Be;l8ter JMU ^ti m Bit.

The trouble arises because of the drastic action txiken by introducing Yankee methods in Persia. In many cases it is maintained that diplomatic foraiali- ties were not strictly adhered to by this hustling young American. This angered Russia ;Rho was without a doubt looking for a chancs to find trouble with Persia in order that she may increase her gra.sp,on the country. Persian people are standing loyally back of the American and are asking the United States to give tb^m her aid. England it is thought will have to side with Russia. THREE FABMS; MAXY HEIB.S.

WAS TH.VT FAINT A FAKE I Hnmboldt Fainter Was Well Fed at 11 O'clock. Register readers will recall the story of the' wan youth who fainted on the depot platform at Humboldt, was gathered np>.fed add beaded and sent on his way to Tulsa In the cushioned cara by the good people of Humboldt. Now comes a man to the Heg- isler with the story that this same youth, husky and robust, asked for food at a farm house south of lo1a on the Wednesday noon that he fainted. He was allowed to work a while and was lined with good food shortly before noon. He said he was broke and walking to Tulsa. This Informant has doubts as to bis faintness after doing without food six hours and walking sts-mlles, and thinks he was seeking a ticket to his destination to save a pair of lazy legs. XOT MUCH OF A LAWYER. Colored Van Defended Himself anj Lost Case. Elijah Weaver, whose shorter^ind uglier name is 'Big Boy " madexa sad go of his attempt to rob some worthy and hard-working lawyer of a fee for defending him in justk^c court yesterday. - Weaver vns the large colored man pointed otit by a white inebriate as the provider of the jag which involved the white man with the police. He asserted his intention .of defending bis own case and was allowed to do so but beyond declaring that he was not guilty, ho seems to have put up little of a defense. Anyhow the court bound him over. A^Tiich may be one reason all the l^yer sharks seemed in such good humor today. There was danger of a most damaging preiedj^at. DOniTEHS PAY A PEXALTl'. . llr !iltiitlng About Merit of Serum In Expensive. Thi' hog cholera continues to caus^ spvero losses to stock raisers In thli" loiinty and yet there are many who- r.till hesitate about the resort to cholera serum. The agricultural col^ le^es recopimend It the farm journals urge its use and there are hundreds of cases where herds have been kpt healthy which have been vaccinated right among other herds that have been wiped out. ^ There IS some ex- psnse connected with inoculating a herd but if cholera kills two hogs the fanner haa lost the cost of inoculating rlial("atfiundred or more. Near lola several herds are healthy and undeci- mated which have been inoculated, while there are many others now only a memory^ Had the serum been used prdmptiy there is little doubt that thousands of dollars worth of hogs would have been saved In this county, alone.
