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. That mortgage isn't it a sticker ?

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.

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 grow.- It becomes sod bound under irrigation and soon fails to procure growth of any value. 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 value. The sod plowed up adds no fertility to the soil. 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 purpose. We are in hopes the above line will beef of service to the farmers in preventing them going to any expense for this grass Rock Ford ( Colo. ) Enterprise. COURT-HOUSE NEWS. COUNTY COURT.
