After Twenty Years' Separation
He Recognizes Voice of His
Former Mistress.
From Saturday'! Dally
A very amusing story is told of
the wonderful memory possessed
by a parrot owned by Jesse Perry
of this city, 'and which illustrates
the intelligence of the bird. A
few days ago Mrs. M. A. Dickson
was called for over the telephone
at Mr. Perry's, and he at once
went out to call her to the 'phone.
When she entered the room she
was talking, and was surprised to
li i 11 rn'un iivo I ! i rtt i 1 1 rr 1 I n 1 K
nidi tfc ivivv Ai 1 uj in i i illlivr,
Doc," and instantly her mind flew'
back to twenty years before, when
she had owned a parrot by that
name, and glancing around she
saw in the cage before her the old
pet of years before, who had
recognized her voice, even though
twenty years had lapsed since she
had parted from it,.
Mrs. Dickson, when she moved
from her home on Wintersteen
Hill, disposed of the parrot to a
family named Cole, who kept it
for several years and later sold
it In Will Adams, from whom Mr.
Perry secured the bird, and with
all these changes it still retained
the remembrance of its former
owner's voice. The lady and the
bird had a very pleasant time, as
many of the sayings of the par
rot are things he leraend at the
home of Mrs. Dickson, and the
occasion was a very pleasant one
for this lady, as she had never
expected to see her old pet again.
The bird is a great favorite of
Mr. Perry and he takes much
pleasure in training it. It does
not seem possible that after so
long a period of years that a
mere lord could retain the re
membrance of a person's voice,
as there are not many persons
who can do this over a stretch of
twenty years.
Surprising Cure of Stomach
When you have trouble with
your stomach or chronic con
stipation, don't imagine that your
case i9 beyond help just because
your doctor fails to give you re
lief. Mrs. G. Stengle, Plainfield,
N. J., writes, "For over a month
past I have been troubled with my
stomach. Everything I ate upset
it terribly. One of Chamberlain's
advertising booklets came to me,
After reading a few of the letters
from people who had been cured
by Chamberlain's Tablets, I de
cided to try them. I have taken
nearly three-fourths of a pack
age of them and can now eat al
most everything that I want." For

Tell Some "Tall" Fish Stories,
but Fall to Bring Home Proof
of Substantiation.
i-'rnn Saturday Dall
The fishing party, who have
been enjoying themselves at
Meadow and near Cedar Creek for
the past week, returned home
last evening and report that the
trip was very much enjoyed by all
in the party and the stories they
tell would bring the blush of
shame to the cheek of the most
hardened teller of fish stories.
It is reported that just a few
hours before breaking camp the
record catch of the trip was made
when Albert Itheinackle made a
catch of a -13-pound catfish. The
fl sli was of large size and the
whole corps of fishermen was re
quired to dive and bring the fish
and Albert to shore, and all pro
nounced the catfish one of the
finest they bad ever seen, and de
lighted with the catch made by
Albert, another cast was made
and a large mud-turtle, estimated
at 100 pounds, was brought in
by the fishermen and landed in
fine shape on the bank. .
The parly was greatly disap
pointed Wednesday evening when
Wes Bookmeyer decided to rest
on bis laurels and leave for home,
as he had injured his foot during
the trip and desired to rest at
home for a few days in order to
recover from the effects of the
expedition. The party arrived
home all right, but their friends
were disappointed, as the wagon
loads of fish caught on the trip
failed o show up.
Causes of Stomach Troubles.
Sedentary habits, lack of out
door exercise, insufficient masti
cation, constipation, a torpid
liver, worry and anxiety, overeat
ing, partaking of food and drink
not suited to your age and oc
cupation. Correct your habits
and take Chamberlain's Tablets
and you will soon be well again.

An Organization That Should Be
Encouraged by Every Vil
lage and Town.
(From the Utica Daily Press.)
Representative Keene of Fort
Scott will introduce a bill
authorizing towns to appropriate
money for the support of the local
band. His theory is that a good
band is worth all it costs to any
town, and as for a bad band, there
is always hope that it may im
prove with proper encourage
ment. The above is a brief extract
from a legislative report publish
ed in the Kansas City Star. If
Representative Keene introduces
his bill be will at feast have the
consolation of knowing that a
great many worse bills have been
introduced in that and other
legislatures and have become
laws. The village band is an in-
stitutiou which ought to be recog
nized and encouraged. It is a
good thing for the players and a
good thing for the people, and
while some of these bands are
pretty bad from a musical stand
point, Mr. Keene is quite right in
saying that they at least can
have the . consolation and ad
vantage of an opportunity for
improvement with the hope and
expectation that they will improve
the opportunity. "Music by the
band" enlivens many a festive
occasion and the local inhabitants
can point with pleasure and
pride to the organization and get
a great deal of enjoyment from
the entertainment it provides.
Anything that enlivens the
locality where it exists in an in
nocent and pleasurable way is to
be commended. It seems as if the
village band is not as much as
an instution as it used to be and
if such is the case it ought to be
and if such is the case it ought
to be resuciated. The score or
more members get a great deal of
fun out of the weekly practice
night and when they are blowing
their horns, even discordantly,
they are not in bad busines?. An
other phrase of it is that they
serve to give the village identity,
publicity and perhaps reason for
pride. There will be more fertile
occasions if there is a band to help
make them a success, and this
promotion of sociability is really
worth while in a community.
Naturally each village band holds
a fair some time in the winter, at
which the people are together and
are entertained and come to know
each other better and hink of hem
more highly. Whatever con
tributes to the increase of sociali
bility to the smaller places de
serves to be encouraged.
One of the faults found with
living in the country is the lack
of entertainment, and if the farm
ers, their wives, their sons and
their daughters can come into the
villages several evenings each
year to hear the band, it makes
life just so much more enjoyable
for them and just so much pleas
anter. By all means every vil
lage ought, to have a band and if
possible, a good one.
Tlic excessive heat of Monday
afternoon eaine near claiming a
victim that evening, when about
(5 o'clock John Armstrong, who
was working on the Cheney farm,
west of town, suddenly collapsed
and for several hours was in a
very serious condition and under
i physician's care. The young
man, who is 17 years old, and was
engaged about the threshing ma
chine that evening, but a half hour
lefore he assisted in putting out
a tire that started from a straw
stack, and it is presumed that the
fire fighting was to some extent
responsible for the sudden illness
of the boy. He fell over without
warning and parties near by saw
that something was seriously
wrong. A messenger was im
mediately sent to the house to
telephone for a doctor, and the
boy was then taken to his home,
where he remained uncpnscious
until 11 o'clock next day. At that
time he partially regained con
sciousness, and we are informed
that he has been getting along
very well since then. He is a son
of Mrs. Jessie Armstrong, who,
with her children and her broth
er, Carl Kent, occupy the house
near the Ward Cheney home and
are employed on the farm.
A number of other cases of
over-heat were reported Monday
and Tuesday, but none of them
of a very serious nature. Among
those who were said to have been
affected were Harry Frans, Isaao
Dye, Jay Austin, Will Stine and
Ken Austin, but they sought re
lief in lime to avoid complete col
lapse. Here in town we have not
heard of anyone exerting them
selves enough to endanger their
lives, as the 104 degrees in the
shade made the town people go
at a slow pace. Union Ledger.
A Good Investment.
W. D. Magli, a well known
merchant of Whitemound, Wis.,
bought a stock of Chamberlain's
medicine so as to be able to sup
ply them to his customers. After
receiving them he was himself
taken sick and says that one small
bottle of Chamberlain Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoe Remedy was
worth more to him than the cost
of his entire stock of these medi
cines. Tor sale by all Dealers.

The lone: promised relief from
(he hot weather that has prevailed
over this section arrived last
pvening and the inhabitants who
for the past few nights have been
sleeping on lawns and porches
were able to seek their couch
without having to suffer from the
intense heat, and the change in
temperature was most welcome
to everyone, and the clouds that
covered the sky at an early hour
this morning held out a promise
of rain, but it stopped at that, as
no moisture fell, although there
is need of some rain for the corn,
which has suffered from the heat
and hot winds. The temperature
this morning was hovering
around the 80 degree mark, being
some 20 degrees cooler than on
the two days previous. Let us
hope the cool weather will hang
on for a short time nt least.

The Journal has just been
handed a communication from R.
II. Vanatla, now of Minco, Okla
homa, but who for years was one
of the prominent citizens here, in
which he desires to let the puolic
know of his condition of health,
which has made it impossible for
him to perform manual labor, and
he earnestly requests assistance
in his affliction. Mr. Vanatta
states he is a member of Lodge
No. 8, of the A. O. U. W. of this
city. The following letter trom
J. H. Pope, of Minco, will servo to
enlighten the friends here as to
his condition:
Minco, Okia., July 1, 1913.
To Whom It May Concern:
This is to certify that I have
well and favorably known Mr. R.
II. Vanatta for the past four
years; that for I he past two years
he has been a severe sufferer
from rheumatism and has been in
consequence thereof, unable to do
any manual labor or get about
without the use of crutches, and
because of his afflictions and
poor financial circumstances has
had to depend upon strangers or
relatives, the last of whom are
not able to materially assist, for
help, lie is desirous of securing
a small stock of goods, and if
the A. O. U. W. can assist him in
a loan of money, or otherwise in
securing such stock, which he can
successfully handle, having had
considerable mercantile experi
ence, the favor will be greatly ap
preciated and worthily bestowed.
Mr. Vanatta is one of those hon
orable, high-toned gentlemen
that are mortified to ask help, but
because of his afflictions cannot
help himself. The A. O. U. W.
cannot do a more commendable
thing than to lend this slight as
sistance to this worthy, but un
fortunate member. Respectfully,
J. B. Pope,
Notary Public for Grady
County, Oklahoma.
