Such is the feeling of Madras,

upon them by the signature-collectors

THE BEST SAFEGUARD
If for any cause the hone or other
domestic animal exhibits n lack of energy,
proper relish for food, or an appearance
of general debility, timely action should
be taken for the restoration of its health
In tbe natural food of our domestic
animals Nature provides certain peculiar
medicinal herbs, leaves, barks and roots
which seem necessary for their health.
Pacific Stock Food in greatly condensed
fonn is intended to supply the essential
virtues of those health-eivini? natural
remedies and is prepared expressly for
those animals deprived by man of their
natural food. It is an alterative tonic
which stimulates the various organs of
the body, promotes the secretions, tones
up the general system and restores the
disordered conditions to a normal state.
It stimulates the appetite, improves the
digestion and assimilation of food, purifies
the tilood and insures a good, healthy
condition. Booklet free.

W. A. Offield, who took up a
320-kcrc homestead beyond Cougar

day. Mr. Offield is 71 years old,
yet he walked the 80 odd miles in a
little over two days, stopping at
ranch houses only for meals, for
his night lodging he carried with
him no blankets, for he said it ia
just as eusy to sleep in one's clothes
as to pack blankets. The old set

which he struck water at six feet,
and considers tlic country in his
vicinity very promising.
