C. S. Wortman of Claremore, Okla
homa, who has been visiting in the
vicinity of South Bend, in this county,
for a few weeks, during his stay in
this city yesterday took advantage of
the occasion to call on a number of his
friends whom he had known while he
made his home in this city during his
term as county superintendent of
schools. Since removing to Okla
homa Mr. Wortman has given up
school work to take up the practice
of law, and in the new commonwealth
has made nuite a sucofs ot his pro
fession and Las ha.niied a an.-:'.', deal
of litigation i't the courts of Rogers
county and the Ok'ahonuv- supreme
court. In spsakin of his county, Mr.
Wortman stated that a greater part
of the land tboco had been divided
among the members of the Cherokee
tribe of Indians and their former
slaves by the federal government, but
the Indians have sold a great deal of
their land to settlers from other
states at prices from $10 to $50 per
acre, and the changes in ownership
have furnished a great deal of I usi
ness for the attorneys. Each Indian
and ex-slave received, an eighiy-acre
tract of land as their share when the
tribal apportionment was made by
Uncle Sam. Mr. Wortm:in still takes
an active interest in political ailnirs
and has become ;uite prominent i;i
democratic politics i.i the south and
was a repiesentat ve i the Oklahoma
legislature from his county and was
one of the leading figures in that
body. His success will be most
pleasing to his old friends in this

Traveling Man's Experience.
"In the summer of 1888 I had . a
very severe attack of cholera morbus.
Two physicians worked over me from
4 a. m. to 6 p. m. without giving me
any relief and then told me they did
not expect me to live; that I had best
telegraph for my family. Instead of
doing so, I gave the hotel porter fifty
cemts and told him to buy me a bottle
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, and take no sub
stitute. I took a double dose accord
ing to, the directions and went to
sleep after the second dose. At 5
o'clock the next morning I was called
by my order and took, a train for my
next stopping point, a well man but
feeling shaky from the severity
of the attack." writes H. W. Ireland,
