A!i AVALAKCHE OF SNOW
i KILLS FOUR M
COMES DOWN THE MOUNTAIN
SIDE NEAR OURAY IN
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo, Jan.
23.-Four men were killed and more
than a score bad narrow escapes from
death when an avalanche of snow
wept over Camp Bird at Ouray late
yesterday. The dead:
S. H. DOUGHITT, veterinary tat
geon. PETER SYNGOTT, a teamater.
GEORGE KERR, a teamster.
JOHN WITTWER. camp cook.
The fonr men were talking in the
cookhouse when almost without any
warning thousands of tons of snow,
. rocks and dirt swept down the moun
tainside. The shanty was in the path
of the avalanche and the men were
hurled into the canvoy and their
bodies covered with snow. It will be
midsummer before the bodies can be
Caught in the steep mountain trails
ly the blizzard which raged all day
and eight six horse teams, the camp
bird bullion stage, carrying $6000 in
gold and many passengers. It is
feared that they may have bees in
the path of the slide and great anxiety
is felt for their, safety.
The avalanche which swept the men
to their death was 50 feet high and it
came sweeping down the mountain
side with irresistable force.
One of the heroes of the disaster
h a large dog owned by Emil John
son, a teamster. Johnson saw the
slide coming and made a desperate
effort to drive out of the way. He
was caught in the avalanche and
buried deep beneath the snow. The
dog had seen his master caught and
rushing at the snow, began to dig
furiously. He kept at it until he reach
ed the busied man and Johnson crawl
ed out, none the worse for his ex-'
Bill Barber, a teamster, saw . the
slide coming and unhitched one of his '
horses, he escaped on his back, the
slide mising him by only a f cl
inches. "Dad" Austin, hero of many wild
rideh through the mountains and one
f the best stage drivers in the
west, heard the slide when it started.
He was driving a six-horse stage fill
ed with people and the horses were
plunging along at a gallop when he
recognized the signs. Instantly he
threw all his weight on the brake and
succeeded in stopping the stage on
the verge of the avalanche. Two of
the leading horses were cut off by
the mass of snow and debris and car
ried ddwn into the canvoy. The camp
of the Asenfclder freight gang was
completely wiped out. Forty horses
were carried into the canyon and
buried under tons of snow.
Another almost miraculous e.cape
was that of Sam Morry, one of the
freight teamsters. He reached the
edge of the avalanche when his foot
slipped and he plunged into a snow
bank. The slide passed over him and
lie crawled out safely.
Still another teamster escaped in
safety to the edge of the slide to be
dragged from his horse and the ani
mal thrown to the ground by the
force of the wind accompanying it.
He was not injured.

. CATARRH CURED
No Cure, No Pay, Is a Most Generous
To get an antiseptic strong enough
to kill catarrh germs, and not destroy
the tissues of the membrane at the
same time, has been a problem which
was never solved until the discovery
of Hyomei (pronouncer High-o-me).
Hyomei is prepared from eucalyp
tus, the most powerful yet healing
antiseptic known. Breathe it through
the inhaler over the inflamed and
germ-ridden membrane four or five
times a day, and in a few days the
germs will disappear.
Tfe inflamed condition will go,
too, and the snuffling, hawking and
offensive breath, and the discharge of
mucous and crusts in the nose will
Then why should any catarrh suf
ferer hesitate, when T. F. Laurin has
such faith .in Hyomei that he offers
to return your money if after a fair
trial Hyomei does not cure catarrh?
A complete Hyomei outfit, includ
ing the inhaler, costs $1.00, and extra
bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
SO cents. Hyomei also cures asthma,
croup, sore throat, colds or grip.

New Method of Reducing Fat
A news item from Paris informs us
that the American method of produc
ing a slim, trim figure, is meeting
with astonishing success. This system,
which has made such a wonderful im
pression over there, must be the Mr
mola Prescription Tablet method of
reducing fat. It is safe to say that we
have nothing better for this purpose
in this country. Anything that will
reduce the excess flesh a pound a day
without injury to the stomach, the
causing of wrinkles, the help of exer
cising or dieting, or interference with
ones meals is a mighty important and
useful addition to civilization's neces
sities. Just such a catalogue of good
results, however, follow the use of
these pleasant, harmless and economi
cal little fat reducers. We say eco
nomical, because Marmola Prescrip
tion Tablets (made in accordance
with the famous prescription) can be
obtained of any druggist or the
makers, the Marmola Co., Detroit,
