On our visit to Alliance, Mnrslanrf and
other points last week, we found tlie
snow vary deep, aud crusted to such an
extent that it Is almost impossible for
stock to reach the grass. Considerable
loss is reported at different points and it
seems only a question of stock bucking
providence, and we fear that some of our
stockmen will realize that snow sand
wiche can not be relied upon to carry-
stock through tha winter. Wa do not
like to ciironicle such news, but such
are facts and we hope that in tlie future
stockman will be more careful and not
over stock their range, for it is shame
ful to have stock perish for want of food
and shelter.
We were pleased last Sunday night to
listen to Cuptain W. R. Akers of Alli
ance give his lecture on Jerusalem, at
Manila nd in behalf of the Christian en
deavor of that plnce. We have heard
several lectures given on the Holy land
but never have been able to hear one
that could give such a life like presentat
ion of the subject as did Mr. Akers.
There was a large audience, and fn.ro
the attention given by all . present, we
was not the only one present that enjoy
ed It. We learn that this lecture is only
the forerunner of a lecture that hs ia pre
paring on ths Holy land; wall if it it to
be any better than this one was, ws will
wait in anxious suspense until we hear it.

Tendency ef tha Times. ...
TtM tendency of medical science is to
ward preventive measures. The best
thought of the world is being givso to
the subject. It Is satisr and better to
prevent than to cure. It has been fully
demonstrated that pneumonia, one of the
moat dangerous diseassa that medical
men have te contend with, can be pre
vented by ths use of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. Pneumonia always re
sults from a cold or from an attack of
Influents (grip), and it hat bees observed
that this remedy counteracts 'any tend
ency of these diaeaeea toward pneumonia
This baa baan fully proven in many thou
aods f oaaaa In which this remedy ban
been used during ths grant prsvalenos of
colds and grip in recent years, nod can bs
relied upon with implicit confidence.

Mr. William L. Baldwin died sudden 1
last Saturday morning about half pat
fouro'cleck. Mrs. Baldwin gavs him
adrink of water several times during tin
night, and Um laat time was about four
o'clock, and lator on when she called
him to gat up hs was dead. Hs has been
suffering from a bullet wound received

to bring on his death. Mr. Baldwin

since. .' v .

course we will need a guide, but we
would prefer a white one. No doubt Mr.
Black is a good old time guide, but the
contrast is too great. No danger of be'

White River's school mams almost thir

besides other noted personages. Time of
course has wronght great changes io

not risk oursslves'at all without a guide

We ess from the daily papers, t hart he
ladies of Crawford are making somewhat
of a'cmsade against the aalooos, of Uiat
place. We will say that if there is any
one thing that the mothers or our
country should have a right to do it to
protect tbeir hornet from this damnable
curse, the saloon. It is true a grat
many citizens in our towns hold up the
kxn ia a great necessity, in the way of
getting finances for the support of the
public schools We believe we are as
much interested in the education of our
children as the average person, and what
we want is the right and privelege of vot
ing a direct Ui for the support of our
schools. We are sure that if every wife
and mother could have that all seeing
eye so fur ss would pertain to her hus
band that she ought see hiei at all times
and in all placet, there would not be a
saloon left. In our visits to different
towns where the saloon alsment predom
inates, ws Isarn that some of the best
ciUzens as they are called visit houses of
prostitution, aod'place themselves upon
a level with its inmates.
You may wonder dear
readers bow such a thing as this can be
but it is very easyily explained, for it is
these hell -holes of saloons that some of
our good citisans visit, and when their
brain it set on Are by the social drink as
itiscalbd; man then condescends to
humiliate, sndfput to shame the one
that has created him for grand and nobler
purposes. We hope the) 'good mothers
of Crawford will not cease In their efforts
until every saloon in that place is closed
and that their children may bs abls to go
upon the'streeti without having to litten
to languages that would put to shame the
devil himself were it not that it is his
business to tear down the strong, and the
weak. Ths queeUoa has often been put

and our snswsr has always been this; can

apply to husbands can you not only meet
your Saviour, but your wives in anv

that if all could adopt this mis there
would be more happier homes, and less
places of degradation. Stand by your
calling christian fathom and mothers and
