Feb. 19. · (By Frederic J. Haskin).--The In" "tllans of the United States can no longer be called a vanishing race. , Figures presented to congress dur- . ing the present session by Charles | H. "Burke, the commissioner of In- ~]ian affairs, show that th-e Indian population lias materially increased during the past 10 jears. There _^.arg, now about 341,000 Indians in ' ""the' country, half of them full 'bloods, and one-third of the rest more than half-bloods. Slowly but surely science and careful medical attention is cutting down the liea%y mortality which for so many years th-e In,, (Hans suffered after coming- in ",, contact with the diseases of the white man. Ten years ago the In- dian death rate annually was _ Colds or Influenza and as a Preventive Laxative SO T8REUEV Women May Depend upon iLydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound , Minneapolis, Minn.--"I had heard so "much about Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound that when I realized I needed to take something torelievemypains and backache, and to help build me up I began to take that. I had been sick off and on for years and barely weighed a. hundred pounds, but now I have had such good' results that I am recommending the Vegetable Compound to every one."--Mrs. J. J.BlEBBB, 3939 . 18th Ave. South, Minneapolis, Minn. Finds a True Friend ''Every ·woman who values her health should be proud to have a true « friend like the Vegetable Compound,'' ' says Mrs. W. E. Shaw, 3227 Walnfet : Street, Chicago, Illinois. "I had fe- " male weakness so badly that I could not stand on my feet. Half of my time was spent in bed and I had pains «· in my back which were unbearable. I tried everything I could think of to help myself, and when a friend advised Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound I began taking it at once. "·"iTecommend it without hesitation."' 32.24 per thousand: in 1920 it was 22 So. The birth rate is now moie than keeping pace vuth tho death rate. At the beginning of (he present century the government had prc- ·\iilecl only f n e hospitals lor the whole Indian population. Today there are 7S Indian hospitals, and tlie goveinment is gmng treatment to more than 20,000 Indian patients c^eiy year. The red man is particularly susceptible to tuberculosis, 25,000 of them bein? more or less aflicted with it. An. even greater number have the disease of the eyes known a_s trachoma. Ten years ago the government spent 540,000 a year in health woik among- the Indians. This year the medical and health appropiiation is 5370,000. The Indians of^He fuiteJ States are also rapidly becoming independent citizens, losing their status of wards of the government. One-third of them have been released entirely from the supervision of the Indian bureau, while -still another third are citizens with full -\ oting rights, although the guardianship of the government over them has not "been relinquished. i Xearly 1.000,000 acres of land | are now being farmed by about 43,000 Indians. Both the area faria- ed and.the number of Indian farmers have nearly doubled in 10 years. Fifty thousand Indian families are now living in houses of permanent construction, while only 10.000 families still cling to- their tents, tepees, and wickiups. Indian Rarely Retrogrades Commissioner Burke disputed the common, idea that after an Indian has been given an education, he promptly goes back to the reservation, drops his civilization along with his store clothes, and promptly resumes the blanket. The commissioner is a man of long experience -with the aborigines, and he declared that the Indian who retrogrades is a rarity. The ^wealth, of the Indians is now- close to §1,000,000,000, or al-j most $3,000 per capita. Their tribal and individual protected funds deposited in the treasury or in banks amount to*| 60,000,000. The Osages constitute the wealthiest tribe, for on their lands in Oklahoma is located the richest oil field in the United States. The Oherokees originally owned this land. Away back in' 1883 when automobiles were not yet invented and the demand for .petroleum was small, the crafty Cherokees thought they had turned a neat piece of business when they suc- ceeded iu bcllmjr this aioa to the Osages lor ?1.23 an acre. After the purchase was made, all mineral lights in tho lands were reserved to tho Csage tribe as a whole. AVheii oil was discovered in tho Osage country, the iudhiduals of this tribe, whether they individually happened to be occupying oil land or not, immediately »rew rich. Every Osage shares equally m the royalties and bonuses paid by the oil operators. Last year alone each enrolled. Osuge recon ed $10,000 in royalties, and certain largo families with numer-_ ous children, ilrew an income as high as ?SO,000 for the year. One sale of oil leases brought the tribe i $7,000,000 in bonuses at rates ·ranging up to ?10,000 an acre, and , they will draw royalties on every ' barrel of oil produced under the leases. The total oil production on the Osage reservation last year came to 29,000,000 barrels. Other Indians in Oklahoma did not secure to their tribes the mineral rights of their lands, but let them go to the individual Indians to whom tho tracts were allotted. The result is that some of these individual Indians have immense oil royalties, while others find themselves occupying only agricultural lauds. There were instances last year of single Creek Indians who leceived as much as $50,000 in royalties. One Lucky Red Man The classic example in Oklahoma of a s lucky Indian is a Creek whose s name is Jackson Barnett. The~_ Creek Indians made their own selections of land to occupy as individuals, as a rule, but because of some dissatisfaction or other, Barnett refused ,to select any. The government theie- fora arbitrarily allotted a tract LOSE YOUR FAT, KEEP YOUR HEALTH Superfluous flesh is not healthy, neither is it healthy to diet or exercise too much'for its removal. This simplest method known for reducing the overfat body easily and steadily is the ilarmola Method, tiled and endorsed by thous-" ands. ^larmola Prescription. Tablets contain an exact dose of the famous IMarmola Prescription, and. are sold by druggists the world over at one dollar for a case. They are harmless and leave no wrinkles or flabbmess. They are popular because effective and convenient. Ask your druggist for them or send price direct^ to the Marmola Co., 4G12 Woodward Ave., Detroit, Mich, and procure a case.--Adv. Eat More of it! BOUNTIFUL PACKAGE Eat Lots a s s A T Y O U R GROCER'S f to him. Naturally, since the othsr Creeks made selections for themselves, only % the poor land was left ·when it came time for th-e government TO make the arbitrary allotments. Barnett's piece was practically worthless as farm land. Tears passed, and then the^oil prospecting 3?egan. Today Ear- aett's farm is one of the richest oil allotments in Oklahoma. Barnett has more than §1,000,000 in Liberty bonds, and he has other property valued at $2,000,000. One of the problems which the Indian office is trying to work out is that of educating- the Navajo Indian children. There are several thousand of these children, and the government is signatory to a solemn treaty promising to educate them. But the tribe itself is nomadic, moving from place lo place year after year. The" onp school that would seem to suit them best would be a portable school that could more along on its wheels with each section of the tribe it served.;; This, however, is not regarded as practicable. Boarding schools to which the children, could be sent for niontl-s at a time would be the best solution, except for the fact that the Indian parents do not like the system. They believe in putting their children to work almost as soon as they can walk. The bureau has 5200,000 with -whidk to find a solution. A n s w ers ,--to--.

Are eggs or milk included in more recipes in cook books? A. Eggs are required in v more recipes thaa milk. Q. How high from the floor should a kitchen sink be Jjuil*? F. A. O. A. It depends upon the height of the worker. Every tuirface should be at least high enough 1,0 that the palms of the hands will rest on the surface when the person stands erect. For a woman 5 feet ~ 5 inches tall working surfaces should be 34^ inches from the floor.. Sitting on a stool at sink or table is restful and makes their height unimportant, Q.What kind of twine should be used for tying wool fleece? A. D. A. Paper jute twine should be us-ed. Strings of jute, hemp or sisal, when withdrawn, from the fleeces, leave particles in. the wool. As these are vegetable fibre and wool is animal fibre, the- dye will not. affect them alike. Paper twine is easily and completely removed during th-e scouring process. Q. Where does blackboard slate come from? R. C. V. A. Tie bureau of mines says that slate suitable for blackboards must be soft and fine-grained. Such slate is obtained from what is known as the "soft-vein" region of Lehigh and Northampton counties. Pa. This comparatively small area, not over 22 miles long, comprises 1 the best if not the only good, blackboard slate deposits in the i world. Q. How Aif Pennsylvania Dutch originate? H. R. T. A. During the eighteenth century. Pennsylvania was a refuge for European immigrants. No oth- 'er colony had so many different races and religions: Dutch, Swedes, ^Enelish, Germans, Welsh and Irish; Quakers, Presbyterians, Catholics, Lutherans JVfennonites and Moravians. Many communities 'have a dialect showing traces of many of these languages--particularly Rhenp-Franconian German --which is known as Pennsylvania Dutch. JACK DAW IN TOYLAND v Drawings by Leslie Elton Story by Hal Cochran * Chapter 17 Jack stooped down directly in front of the electric station and watch- eel the little engine pull in. He expected to see the ordinary train of passenger and mail cars and you can imagine his surprise when a fancy open coach pulled up in front of him. It was the queen's private car. As soon as the train stopped tha little wooden soldiers formed in a line and the queen stepped to the ground. "Hail the queen of tolandy," shouted the captain, of the soldiers. After much cheering the queen bowed and looked up at Jack. Thenlshe asked, "Who are you? I've never seen you before.". Edward Owens, injured several months ago in a coal mine acci- ceut. as stated herein last year, is dead at Golf ax, says a message calling relatives to that town. His wife was Miss Maude Singleman, a former resident of TVellman. 3Irs. W. H.

How many soldiers and widows of soldiers of the Civil war would have been benefitted by the Bursum b i l l . A. The p-snsion bureau says that there are approximately 182,989 survivors and 268,86" ~widows of the Civil war who would have benefitted by an increase of $21 each under the Bursum bill. The bill also provides an increase to Indian war widows and survivors, army nurses of the Civil war, minor children of Civil, war survivors and dependent parents of Civil war survivors, widows of the war of Ibi2, and survivors and widows of the Mexican war. The estimated cost would he about ?9,000,000 a month. Jack smiled and explained that he was a^visitor in Toyland. The queqn shook his land and invited him to go -with her to the baby do.ll show. Then a little team of black horses trotted up. * They were hitched to the queen's carriage and as she got ia, the- trip to the doll show was started. (Continued ) KALONA NEWS Q. How hot is the sun.
