All the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the

assist one in avoiding' the worthless

Long Creek, Feb. 8. Grant county
has in the past few days experienced the
coldest weather known -to the earliest
inhabitant?. Since Friday night the
thermometer has registered constantly
at from 5 to 30 delow zero. Up to this
time the winter had been an excellent
one for stock. Considerable hay had
been fed out, and many who bad not
supplied themselves with hay were com
pelled to pay exborbitant prices for the
article, which they did rather than sac
rifice their herds. Should cold weather
continue the loss in Grant county will
be enormous. Sheep and cattle are al
ready beginning to euccumb, and it ia
impossible to purchase any more hay.
To Gain Flesh, to Sleep Well, to Know
What Appetite and Good Digestion
No trouble is more common or more
misunderstood than nervous dyspep-.ia.
People having it think their nerves are
to blame and are surprised that they
are not cured by nerve medicine?. The
real seat of the mischief is lost siwht of.
The stomach is the organ to be looked
Nervous dyspeptics often do not have
any pain whatever in the stomach, nor
perhaps any of the symptoms of stom
ach weakness. Nervous dyspepsia shows
itself not in the stomach so much as in
nearly every organ. In some cases the
heart palpitates and is irregular; in oth
ers the kidneys are effected; in . others
the bowels are constipated, with head
aches ; Btill others are troubled with Iobb
of flesh and appetite with accumulations
of as, sour risings and heartburn.
It is safe to say that Stuart's Dyspep
sia Tablets will cure any stomach weak
ness or disease except cancer of the
stomach. They cure sour stomach, gas,
loss of flesh and appetite, sleeplessness,
palpitation, heartburn, constipation and

Jbn Englishman's Impression of
Greater New York.
Americana Come In for a Genereu
Share of I'rnise for Their Cor
rect Conduct Same Carl
oqi Tilings, f
Had the initial stage of existence been
ordered" under different circumstances;
and I had been given the choice "of a
birthplace, I might have elected to be
born an American citizen somewhere
outside' of New York. For what is one
to say of a city that will not permit you
to carry pickles through the streets on
the seventh day rior allow you to kiss
your best girl on the sidewalk on any of
the others? I might not want at any
period of life to do either one or the
other of these proscribed acts, yet if it
should happen that I did1 1 Ehould hate
to call my own that city which forbade
me. V
Indeed, the niceties of life in New
York have been somewhat of a puzzle
to me. I have not been permitted to
smoke a cigarette while walking along
Fifth avenue with a lady, but I have
been allowed to take her to the theateT
and occupy a front seat in the stalls
without-donning" evening dress a thing
no lady would tolerate in London.
Spanish cities are famous for their
noises, but New York I found to be
noisier than any three of them. My
nerves were at a tension during the
whole of my visit. It is not an unceas
ing, distant rumble that soon becomes
no discomfort, as in London, but a suc
cession of jarring, jerky noises, dis
tracting to the senses. Why you tol
erate it I cannot understand. What
with cable cars, the "L" railroad, the
cabs and; carts rattling over roadways
with no pretense at paving, and the
thousand and one street cries. New
York is a perfect inferno of clamor.
Indoors I find another curious things
curious, you must remember, to the
Englishman. You heat your houses to
suffocation and then dTink gallons of
iced water to keep cool to the ruin of
your digestion, temper and nerves, un
til you have become the most dyspeptic
people uncJer the eun and the special
prey of the quack-medicine venders.
You claim to be a sensible people, and
yet your candy stores are filled every
day by crowds of struggling women
who eat indigestible pastry to such an
extent that the graveyards of America
contain more tons of gold than of
The New York man d'oesnot hustle
as much as you would have others be
lieve. In fact, you don't work, man for
man, so hard as the Englishman. But
you think quicker and larger, and you
think more than you work. You have a
great idea, tire of it halfway through
because another greater id'ea has come
to you, and leave your subordinates to
work out the minor details of the first
scheme, with the result that it is never
wholly finished. The average Englishman
will see the thing through from begin
ning to end,and give his whole attention
to the-smallest detail. Yours is a city of
diversified thought and aspirations.
The one thing in which you seem to
have a common mind is that you should
wear a crease down the front of an old
pair of trousers.
As to you generally, you are the
kindliest and most hospitable people on
the face of the earth. This I say with
out reservation, and every Englishman
who has visited' your shore will bearme
out in my statement. v You never seem
to tire of extending to him civilities and
courtesies such as overwhelm a sensi
tive man, whether it is in showingwith
just pride the wonders: and resources
of your great country, or spendicgyour
dollars or your time in h:s service. To
one gentleman, who would not wish me
to identify him by name, I owe a deep
de"bt of gratitude1 for all he did' for
me a stranger and his, I believe, was
a spirit that pervades you all. Leslie's

The Foot of the Reindeer. '
Everything in any way connected
with Alaska and the Klondike is of spe
cial interest at present, and among
other items the foot of the reindeer de
serves particular mention. The forefoot
of the horse to a great extent deter
mines its value, as upon this portion
of its anatomy its speed and endurance
depend. The foot , of the reindeer is
most pecujiar in construction. It is
cloven through the middle and each half
curves upward ' in front. They are
slightly elongated ' and capable of a
considerable amount of expansion.
When placed on an irregular surface,
which is difficult to traverse, the animal
contracts them into a sort of claw, by
which a firm hold is secured. When
moving rapidly the two portions of the
foot, as it is lifting, strike together, the
hoofs making a continuous clattering
noise, which maybe heard at a consider
able distance. It is this peculiarity of
the feet that makes the reindeer so sure
footed and so val nable in that rocky and
uneven country, where almost any
other animal would prove a failure as
a beast of burden. N. Y. Ledger.

Government Breeding; Them for tbe
Purpose of Producing; av New Kindt
of Silk An Interesting;
Some very remarkable bugs are be
ing1 hatched and reared just at present
by the experts of the government bu
reau of entomology at Washington
Most people would suppose that there
were enough insects in existence with
out resorting to artificial propagation;
but the fact is that this kind of scientific
work has a very useful purpose in view,
This, too, notwithstanding the fact that
the srjecies selected for breeding are
the most pestiferous that can be found
The bug hatchery, or "insectary," as
it is called, is a brick building close by
the department of agriculture. In con
struction it resembles a greenhouse, the
upper part being of glass, so as to admit
plenty of light for the insects. It is
divided into two compartments, one of
which is artificially heated forhe ben
efit of tropical and other species that
require warmth, while the other is cold
On shelves-all around the interior, And
on the floor as well, are glass jars and
queer glass-sided boxes containing a
great variety of odd-looking objects.
The objects in the glass jars are parts
of plants, fruits, dried-up vegetables,
pieces of branches or roots, etc.. One
does not see any bugs at all, and the
reason why is simply that the veg
etables, fruits and so forth are tihe
natural food of the insects, and the lat
ter are either inside of them or ' else
are "done up" in cocoons for the win
For example, there is a huge cocoon
nine inches long hanging from a twig
in a jar of exceptional size. This is the
temporary communal dwelling built by
the so-called "gregarious butterfly" in
Mexico. More correctly speaking, it is
the caterpillars transformed later into
butterflies that construct the cocoon
for a residence while they are under
going their metamorphosis. The co
coon iooKs antl iee;s as n maae or xuick
parchment, and at the lower end of it
is a small hole that serves lor a door.
The labor employed in building it must
be enormous. Under a powerful mag-
nifving glass, it is seen te be composed
ot an infinite number of shining and
very slender silken threads, crossing-
each other in every direction. when
iut into, the nes't is found to contain
100 or more chrysalids, attached to the
walls on the inside each one repre
senting a future butterfly.
The habit of combining together to
build a house seems to be peculiar to
this species among butterflies. The silk
somposing the nest is exquisite, anid
from 20 to 25 sheets of it can be stripped
afE from the greatcocoon as if woven
in a loom. If the silk could only be
spun, the "gregarious butterfly" would
soon displace the silkworm; and the
silks and satins of commerce would be
of' butterfly manufacture. Unfor
tunately, the difficulty remains un
solved, though many, attempts in this
direction have been made. . Could a so
lution of the problem be found, silk
vvould become at once enormously less
costly, inasmuch as the cocoons of this
kind of butterfly are to be gathered in
immense numbers as a wild crop in. the
forests of Mexico. Boston Transcript.
