A powerful engine cannot be run with a
weak boiler , and w& can't keep up the strain
ot an active life with a weak stomach ; neither
can we stop the human machine to make
repairs. If the stomach cannot digest enough
food to keep the body strong , such a prepara
tion as Kodol Dyspepsia Cure should be used.
It digests what you cat and it simply can't
help but do you good. McConnell & Berry.
When the baby swallows a penny the doctor
makes its father cough up a dollar or two.
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 ail the natural djgestants
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.
An Atchison girl boasted a few years ago
that two men were so anxious to marry her
that she drew straws to see which she would
take. She drew the wrong straw.
How to Cure the Grippe.
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 Tor the grip not one
case has ever been reported that did not re
cover. For sale by McConnell & Berry.

The Progressive Burlington.
Recently a person well versed in Bur
lington affairs gave it as his opinion that
the company would build a line from a
point near Brush by the way of Greeley ,
Fort Collins and Liratnie to a connect
ion with its Salt Lake line , and that at
the same time it would extend the line
from Lyons to Fort Collins , says the
Laramie Republican. This , he said
would give the Burlington a line from
St. Louis to Salt Lake City shorter by
thirty-five miles than any other trans
continental route and at the same time
would permit the Burlington to market
its fuel from its extensive coal mines
already located north-west of Rawlins.
This extension would at a single sweep
reach three of the best towns in the west
and would open up a country rich in re
sources. It would connect the great
sheep-feeding industry of Laramie
county , Colorado , with the corn of Ne
braska , and the lambs of Wyoming.
Within the past ninety days the Bur
lington has located more than 14,000
acres of coal land in Carbon county and
its agents are now actively at work se
curing land for townsite and other pur
poses. Sheridan ( Wyo. ) Post.

To OUR COUNTY COMMISSIONER :
Dear Sir : Have you on your bands a
young or middle-aged woman capable of
doing household duties for one person
besides themselves. If so I would like
to get one. I have a nice pleasant home
with everything to do with. Will prom
ise to provide well and treat kindly who
ever may come. You may let me know
if you please by postal card. I am 68
years old or nearly so , and not very good
health. No outside chores to do. For
reference will give you Dr. Brown of your
place or Judge Keyes or the Bank of
Indianola. Very Resp't Yours ,

Value of Brome Crass.
Occasionally there appears in the col-
ums.of the press ( especially the agricul
tural ) very favorable mention of brome
grass ( brouius inermis ) . It is worthy to
the extent that this thrives under arid
conditions and on very poor soil and
that it is a valuable forage plant.
Since 1896 the experiment station has
been testing this grass under varied con-
ditions.such as sub-irrigation for growth
and germination , irrigation by flooding
seeding in the fall , pasturage , ability to
withstand drouth , value to produce milk ,
etc. , and to make the story short , sums
it up as follows :
It starts to grow early in the spring
and for a time gives great promise , but
as soon as hot jweather occurs fails to
It becomes sod bound under irrigation
and soon fails to procure growth of any
Its behavior tends to show it adapted
to a region of lower mean temperature
and greater precipitation , and that the
soil should contain more clay than does
the average of this valley.
It is coarse and very low in nutritive
The sod plowed up adds no fertility to
There seems to be but one place where
it may profitably be employed , that is ,
as a soil retainer on the banks of sandy
ditches that wash ; its ability to make
good growth where sub-irrigation is ap
plied makes it of value for the above
We are in hopes the above line will beef
of service to the farmers in preventing
them going to any expense for this grass
