Osage Tribe of Indiana Are Called the
Wealthiest People on Karth.
Much has been, written about the
wealth of the Osage Indians. These
fortunate people as a tribe are per
haps the richest people on earth.
To begin with, they, have something
like $8,000,000 on deposit with fee
United States government. This large
sum is drawing a good rate of inter
est, sufficient to give each member of
the tribe $164 per annum. They also
have about 1,600,000 acres of land,
which, in view of the Immense fields
of gas and oil now being developed, Is
worth at a conservative estimate $5
an acre. This augments their money
holdings $8,000,000 and gives a grand
total of $16,000,000. If this sum
should be divided equally among the
1,913 living Osages, each would have
j Besides the regular annuity derived
from interest on funds on deposit, each
Osage gets a considerable sum of
money received from the annual rent
als of the tribal pastures. To this is
now being added that of oil and gas
royalties. The full value of this item
is difficult to arrive at, from the fact
that frequent new developments aug
ment the jnontnly revenue from this
source. . At this time the tribe is draw
ing something like $12,000 monthly
from oil and gas royalties, or about
$75 per capita per annum, amounting
in all to nearly $250 a year which each.
Osage receives as bis pro rata share
of the income from their tribal funds.
Aside from this, the Osage Journal
reports that there are many members
of the tribe who have private fortunes
of considerable volume. These private
holdings ranged from the common farm
home, equipped7 with the ordinary con
veniences and comforts of life, to pa
latial mansions and live stock and oth
er personal property holdings valued at
many thousands of dollars. More than
a dozen Osage; Indians are rated as
owning property valued at from $10,
000 to $20,000 or more, and several of
them have commodious country homes,
containing from ten to twenty rooms.
These persons are not all mixed bloods.
but a number of them are full-blooded
Osages, who have by their own indus
try and thrift added to their original
patrimony. Kansas City Journal.

CUBAN MINISTER TO THE U. S.
Sen or Quesada, Cuban Minister to the United States.
Senor Quesada. Cuban Minister to the United States, is an orator born. In
mn article in The Outlook for July, 1899, by George Kerinan, who heard Quesada
speak at the Esteban Theatre, Matanzas, Cnba, he said: "I have seen many
audiences under the spell of eloquent speech and in the grip of strong emotional
exitement, but I have rarely witnessed such a scene as at the close of Quesada's
eulogy upon the dead patriot, Marti." ' In a letter to The Peruna Medicine
company, written from Washington, D. C, Senor Quesada says:
I "Peruna I can recommend as a very good medicine.
I It is an excellent strengthening tonic and it is also an ef
I ficacious cure for the almost universal complaint of ca
I tarrh." Gonzalo De Quesada.
.Congressman J. H. Bankhead, of Ala
bama, one of the most influential mem
bers of the Houes of Representatives,
in a letter written from Washington,
D. C, gives his endorsement to- the
great catarrh remedy, Peruna, in the
"Your Peruna is one of the best medi
cines I ever tried, and no family should be
without your remarkable remedy. As a
tonic and catarrh cure I know of nothing
better." J. 11. Bankhead.
There is but a single medciine which
is a radical specific for catarrh. It is
Peruna, which has stood a half century
test and cured thousands of cases.

Save the Babies.
INFANT MOETALITY is something frightfuL We can hardly realize that ot .
all the children born in civilized countries, twentytwo per cent, or nearly
one-quarter, die before they reach one year; thirtyseven per cent, or more '
than one-third, before they are five, and one -half before they are fifteen!
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save a ma
jority of these precious lives. Neither do we. hesitate to . say that many of these
infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinctures
and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain more or less opium, or
morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity
they stupefy, retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, death. Castoria
operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it bears the signature of"
Chas. H. Fletcher. Castoria causes the blood to circulate properly, opens the
pores of the skin and allays fever.
Letters from Prominent Physicians

Dr. Edward Parrlsh, of Brooklyn, N. Y., says : "I have used your Castoria In
my own household with good results, and have advised several patients to us. it
lor Us mild laxative effect and freedom from harm."
Dr. J. B. Elliott, of New York City, says: "Having during the past six years
prescribed your Castoria for Infantile stomach disorders, I most heartily commend
its use. The formula contains nothing deleterious to the most delicate of children.'
G- Sprague, of Omaha, Neb., says: -Your Castoria is an ideal medicine
to? children, and 1 frequently prescribe it. While I do not advocate the Indis
criminate use of proprietary medicines, yet Castoria is an exception for conditions
which arise In the care of children."

M Dr. J. A. Parker, of Kansas City, Mo., says : "Your Castoria hold the esteem
of the medical profession in a manner beld by no other proprietary preparation. It
is a sure and reliable medicine for infants and children. In fact, It is the universal
household remedy for Infantile ailments."
Dr. H, F. Merrill, of Augusta, Me., says: "Castoria is one of the very finest
and most remarkable remedies for Infants and children. In my opinion your C'asiorla
has saved thousands from an early grave. I can furnish hundreds of testimonials
from this locality as to Its efficiency and merits."
Dr. Norman M. Geer, of Cleveland, Onio, says : "During the Isst twelve years
I have frequently recommended your Castoria as one of the best preparations n't the
kind, being safe In the hands of parents and very effective in relieving children's
disorders, while the ease with which snch a pleasant preparation can be administered
Is a great advantage."
Dr. F. H. Kyle, of St. Paul, Minn., says: "It affords me pleasure to add my
name to the long list of those who have used and now endorse your Castoria. Th.
fact of the Ingredients being known through the printing of the formula on th.
wrapper is one good and sufficient reason for the recommendation of any physician.
I know of Its good qualities and recommend it cheerfully."
