"INCLUDES' 3 CONVENTIONS
Stock yards excursionists made op
in battle array Saturday afternoon.
A half hundred ardent commission
men, all in quest of the elusive "ad
vertisement," signed up vocally to be
come a part of the initial delegation
which leaves Tuesday afternoon,
bound for Cheyenne, Salt Lake City,
Ogdcn, Thermopolis, Denver and
other strategical points in the west
and northwest. '
Secretary and Traffic Manager A.
K.,Stpyker and Bill Shcllberg had the
list in charge.
The itinerary, however, was given
out which is included herein.
Every year it has been the custom
of yards men to make the rounds of
conventions interesting to stockmen
which are held in cities of the middle
west The principal meeting of. in
terest this trip will be at Salt Lake
City, where the annual meeting of
the National Wool Growers will be
held January 11, 12 and 13. The Wy
oming Wool Growers' association
will meet at Thermopolis. Secretary
Strykrr of the local yards is scheduled .
to tltSke a talk.
The fact that the sheep market fell
below the big record of a year ago is
considered basis enough for making
a thorough canvass of the territory
-covered. The runs during the last
year have been excellent. The West
ern Stock show at Denver January
21 to 27 will be largely attended by
local stockmen, but will not be in
cluded iir the itinerary of the present
excursion. Salt Lake City will be
" visited twice, the second time attend
ance being at the meeting of the
American National Live Stock asso
ciation. The first (top will be made
at Cheyenne. The delegates witDeave

Mrs. Frank Crocker, Pana. III., writes:
"Our five-year-old son, Paul, caught
a severe cold last winter that settled
on Ms lungs and he , had ' terrible
coughing spells. We were greatly
worried about him as the medicine
we gave him did not help him in the
least A neighbor spoke so highly of
Qiamberlain's Cough Remedy that 1
got a bottle of it. The first dose bene-
uted him so much that I continued
giving it to him until he wat cured."

the Mohawk valley, .starting from
Amsterdam, which, unlike, its flat

All of us in the party had been born
almost within sight of the place, but
only one had even a dim recollection
of having heard of its existence. Wc

Such a scene cannot be described;
one can only mention some of its ele

these things, ' and the first require

The hill that I am writing of is a few
miles from the village of Mariaville,
which itself lies beside a little lake
1,300 feet above 'sea level. The sum

rises moderately above all its imme
diate surroundings. It is a kind of
hill peninsula projecting into an at
mospheric ocean, whose bottom, com
posed of farm lands, gradually shelves
down deeper and deeper, and sweeps
away on all sides for many miles until
it begins to rise again to meet the
hills and mountains that form its

the eye, gleams a little white line
