F. Surface, Fawn Eirer. Mich., who write
under date of Feb. 14, ISA:
"Fourteen years ago 1 had a slight stroke of
paralysis. Overwork brought on nervous
prostration. I was exceedingly nervous and
the exertion of public speaking caused
heart palpitation that threatened my life.
I used two bottles of Dr. Miles' New Heart
Cuie for my heart trouble, and two of Dr.
Miles Iteatorative Nervine for my nervous
nasa and feel better than I ever expected to
feel again. I can speak for hours without
tiring or having my heart flutter as It for
merly did, and I have you to thank that I
am alive today."

The rain fall has been very unequally
distributed. Heavy showers, with one
to three inches of rainfall, have oceured

southwestern counties much damage
has been done to the crop and iu a few
instances the corn is beingcutfor fodder.

corn has grown remarkably well and

Hunting, the Wild Goat.
The white goat, or Bocky Mountain
goat, as it ia indiscriminately culled, is
a species of bis: game rarely hunted by
sportsmen. This is not so much because
of the difficulty of killing the animal, nor
because of its actual rarity. It is a stu
pid animal, easily.shot when once found.
It is not, however, found in the usual
hunting grounds, as are bear, deer, elk,
etc. It is remote from the common lo
calities, but where found is in goodly
numbers. It ranges very high up in the
mountains, above timber line usually,
among rocks and cliffs. This requires
great labor to get at it, but once there,
the hunter will get his game nine times
out of ten.
If you care to read of a goat hunt
made in the Bitter Root range in Mon
tana, in the fall of 1895, send six cents
to Charles S. Fee, General passenger
agent, Northern Pacific railroad, St.
Paul, Minn., for Wonderland '96, which
recounts such a hunting expedition.
