REMOVAL OF RESTRICTIONS Ledbetter and Others'in Washington in Interest of New Bill ; '.. Washington,'. April 15.;-(Special). W. A. Ledbetter of Aardmore, Clarence A. Douglas andA. V. Zeyeley of Muskogee and Commissioner Tains Bixby are drafting an amendment to the Indian appropriation providing for the removal of restrictions on the sale of surplus lands and hope to shape a proposition that will prove acceptable to a majority of the Indian committee, which is expected to father it. These and other interested in the matter have had conferences with the president and Indian Commissioner Lcupp and have appointed Mr. Ledbetter to draw up an amenoment that shall embody the suggestions received from these sources. It is designed to draft a provision which will make the removal of restrictions to such safeguard as will protect the Indians against impositions and require a showing satisfactory to the secretary of the interior that the Indians are capable of managing their own affairs before approval is given to the alienation of their lands. Other safeguards are also to be required in the hope that the proposed legislation be accepted by the senate and house. , It is represented here by Douglas and others that the elimination of the clause providing for the removal of restrictions from the Five Civilized Tribes bill has cast a gloom on the business interests of the territory, and this argument has been pres?uted to the president and the interior department in the strongest light. SIX KILLED, TWO MAY DIE Distressing Accident of Battleship Kearfargo Washington, D. C.-The Atlantic fleet, the strongest fighting fleet Amer ica has ever owned, had been for weeks engaged jn the most severe drills in the waters of the Carribcau sea, culminating in the quarterly targ.'t practice. This practice was just about concluding, with most satisfactory rcsillt-i tip to yesterday, and it was confuieri't-ly expected at the department, on tlij basis of preliminary reports received, that-all records would be broken, in the matter of rapidity of fire and efficiency of. gunners. I3ut today, just at the close of the week's work at the department, came a cablegram from Rear Admiral Evans the commanding chief of the Atlantic fleet, telling of a dreadful accident on one of his best ships, the Kearsarge. The telegram told in part that the gunners were stowing away in the forward turret sections of powder for a thirteen-inch gun, when the explosion occurred, killing Lieutenant Hudgins, Peter Norberg, Theodore Naogcly, Anton O. Thorson, Julius A. Koestcr, and Ellis Athey. Lieutenant J. W. Graeme and W. King are not expected to live. Forty men were above and below and it is a wonder more were not killed ouright.

''However, not much alarm is felt that it will reach the fcrrv builditi"-. even if it reaches the steamer freight sheds on the', north." 1 San Francisco.-The fire is practically under control. A clear sky over the mission district shows that the lire there has been extinguished. The spread of the (lames toward the western addition, the best part of the city remaining, has been stayed, and the only portion of the conflagration that demands the attention of the lire-men is that ext. tiding from Nob hill section ('| nvn to the nortlnycstern part of the water front.

Chinatown is gone. The fire is raging 011 Nob hill. I hear that parts of Nob hill arc ciiti-ely wiped out.

Such may be used for ripping cloth when a custodier] wants a yard or two, or for clipping good things out of the newspapers. "Old Hickory" wants everybody to know that a clipping can be cut from a paper much better with the point of a common pin than with anything else.' I believe him. For many years he has carried In his waistcoat pocket a large bank pin. Some men use the point of a knife 'lade, but not one man in, 100 caries a sharp knife. The pin's the thing. Ask your banker for one- ibout 2V4 Inches long. Just scratch 'he paper with it and the clipping will fall out.-F-charJze.

A BUSY WOMAN Can Do the Work of 3 or 4 If Well Fed. An energetic young woman living just outside of New York, writes: "I am at present doing all the housework of a dairy farm, caring for 2 children, a vegetable and flower garden, a large number of fowls, besides managing an extensive exchange business through the malls and pursuing my regular avocation as a writer tot several newspapers and magazines (designing fancy -work for the latter) and all the energy and ability to do this I owe to Grape-Nuts food. "It was not alway- so, and a year ago when the shock of my nursing baby's death utterly prostrated me and deranged my stomach and nerves so that I could not assimilate as much as a mouthful of solid food, and was in even worse condition mentally, ha would have beeri a rash ^prophet who would have predicted that it ever' would do so. "Prior to this great grief I had Buffered for years with Impaired digestion, insomnia, agonizing orampB in the stomach, pain in the side, constipation, and other bowel derangements, all these were familiar to my dally life. Medicines gave me-no relief-nothing did; until a few .months ago, at a friend's suggestion, I began to use Grape-Nuts food, and subsequently gave up coffee entirely and adopted Fostum Food Coffee at all my meals. "To-day 1 am free from all the troubles I have enumerated. My digestion, is simply perfect, I assimilate my food without the least distress, enjoy sweet, restful'sleep, and have a buoyant feel-ing-of pleasure in my varied duties. In fact, I am u-new woman, entirely made over, and I repeat, I owe It all to Orapo-Nuts . and Postum Coffee/' Name given by Postum. Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
