A powerful engine c.-innot be run with a
weak boiler , and we can't keep up the strain
of an active life with a weak stomach ; neither
can we stop the human machine to make
repairs. If the stomach cannot dijjest enough
food to keep the body strong , such a prepara
tion as Kodol Dyspepsia Cure should be used.
It digests what you eat and it simply can't
help but do you good. McConnell & Berry.
The second week her husband is sick
woman looks over all her black dresses.
Recent experiments show that all classes of
foods may be completely digested by a prep
aration called Kodol Dyspepsia Cure , which
absolutely digests what you eat. As it is the
only combination of all the natural digestants
ever devised the demand for it has become
enormous. It has never failed to cure the
very worst cases of indigestion and it always
gives instant relief. McConnell & Berry.
Kindness , tact , discretion , are the three
elements of refined conversation. They aie
more substantial than brilliancy or wit and ,
therefore , more desirable.
How to Cure the Grippe.
I Remain quietly at home and take Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy as directed and a quick
recovery is sure to follow. That remedy
counteracts any tendency of the grip to re
sult m pneumonia , which is really the only
serious danger. Among the tens of thous
ands who have used it for the grip not one
case has ever been reported that did not re
cover. For sale by McConnell & Berry.

Like bad dollars , all counterfeits of De-
Witt's Witch Hazel Salve are worthless. The
original quickly cures piles , sores and all skin
diseases. McConnell & Berry.
A woman is so constituted that when ever
she doesn't smile she has to make faces.
There is always danger in using counteifeits
of DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve. The orig
inal is a safe and certain cure for piles. It is
a soothing and healing salve for sores and all
skin diseases. McConnell & Berry.

Reports show a greatly increased death
rate from throat and lung troubles , due to the
prevalence of croup , pneumonia and grippe.
We advise the use of One Minute Cough
Cure in all of these difficulties. It is the only
harmless remedy that gives immediate results.
Children like it. McConnell & Berry.
Probably the average mouse thinks women
are the most dreadfully immodest creatures it
For the weakness and prostration following
grippe there is nothing so prompt and effect
ive as One Minute Cough Cure. This prepa
ration is highly endorsed as an unfailing
remedy for all throat and lung troubles and
its early use prevents consumption. It was
made to cure quickly. McConnell & Berry.

Newcastle , Colo. , Special to Kansas
City World : A mountain , which has
been on fire for more than 100 years Is
situated Just west of here. So close Is
it that its shadow envelopes the town
at 5 p. m.-at this time of the year , and
yet the people hereabouts think no
more of it than the beautiful Grand
river which washes the feet of the huge
pile where the fire has burned so long.
To the tenderfoot , however , the glit
tering patches of deep r d fire , where
it breaks out on the side of the moun
tain , and is exposed to view , there is
nothing in all this state quite its equal.
The fire is fed by a big vein of coal
which the mountain contains. Just
how the coal became ignited is not
known. The oldest resident says it
was on fire when he came here , and the
Ute Indians , who once lived in this sec
tion , say it was burning many years
before the first white man crossed the
continental divide. The supposition is
that the coal was ignited by a forest
fire at an early date In the present cen
tury. It has smouldered and steadily
burned until this day. At night when
the moon is dark Is the best time to see
the fire. Then it is that it resembles
the regions of inferno as given us in
the word-painting of Dante. The earth
covering the coal is loosened by the
heat and falls away , exposing the sheet
of fire. The escaping gas probably as
sists in stripping off the rocks and dirt ,
and wherever the vein of coal approaches
preaches the surface the fire can be
seen. The first fire I &aw was fully 50
feet square. It had a peculiar red tint ,
while the burning gas coming up at the
base of the coal vein , added a bright
blue coloring to the scene. In many
places the surface of the mountain has
sunken , showing where the fire has
burned out its course. Efforts have
been made to extinguish tue fire. Some
time ago a .company which owns a
large amount of coal land here , con
structed a ditch from a point several
miles above the mountain into which
it succeeded in turning the water
which goes to form Elk creek. Previ
ously a shaft had been sunk in the
mountain , and into this shaft the water
was permitted to flow. The shaft was
soon filled , but the fire was above the
level of the water , and the effort was

A Bad Habit
Some of the physicians are claiming
'that the 5 o'clock tea habit is a bad
one. They say it induces nervous de
Moisture Stored la Wlutor for Une In
If all the condensed moisture of the
atmosphere were to fall as rain , and
none of It as snow , hundreds of thou
sands of square miles' of the earth's
surface now yielding beautiful crops
would be little better than a desert.
The tremendous economic gain for the
world at large which results from the
difference between snow and rain Is
seldom realized by the inhabitants of
fertile and well-watered lowlands. It
Is the extensive regions where irriga
tion is a.prime necessity in agriculture
that the special uses of the snow come
chiefly into view. All through the
winter the snow is falling upon the
high mountains , and packing Itself
firmly into the ravines. Thus in na
ture's great ice house a supply of mois
ture Is stored 'ip for the following sum
mer. All through the warm months
the hardened snow banks are melting
gradually. In trickling streams they
steadily feed the rivers , which as they
flow through the valleys are utilized
for Irrigation. If this moisture fell as
rain it would almost immediately
wash down through the rivers , which
would hardly be fed at all in the sum
mer , when the crops most need water.
These facts are so well known as to
be commonplace in the Salt Lake val
ley , and in the sub-arid regions of the
west generally. They are not so well
understood in New Jersey or Ohio ,
where snow is sometimes a pictur
esque , sometimes a disagreeable fea
ture of winter. In all parts of the
country the notion prevails that the
snow is of great value as a fertilizer.
Scientists , however , are inclined to
attach less importance to its service
in soil nutrition for some regions
which have no snow are exceedingly
fertile than to its worth as a blanket
during the months of high winds. It
prevents the blowing off of the finely
pulverized richness of the top soil.
This , although little perceived , would
often be a very great loss. In nature's
every form there is meaning. Youth's
Amnesty In Peru.
The Peruvian legislature has passed a
law granting absolute amnesty to all
persons who may have been concerned
in any political transgression or of
fenses , with the right to fill public
offices. All political prisoners con
fined in Lima have been set at liberty.
Tccnllar Spiral Chimney.
A spiral chimney. 150 feet high , has
been built near Bradford , England.
The chimney is square in cross-section
and each layer of brick is shifted
three-sixteenths of an inch out of
place , thus giving a peculiar twist to
each side of the stack.
