A SCHOOL GIRL’S BATTLE.
From The Mail, Milford, Ind.
Miss Emma Rybolt, a prepossessing school
girl of Milford, lnd., is of more than usual
intelligence, and is ambitious to rise in the
“In the fall of 1896,” said Mrs. Rybolt,
“Emma was taken ill. She wus a close
student and her work began to tell on her.
She grew weak, pale and nervous, and com-
plained of pains in her back, chest and
limbs. A few weeks passed and she grew
worse. The doctor said she was a victim of
nervous prostration, and should have been
taken from school weeks earlier. She
gradually grew worse, her nerves were so
tense that the least noise irritated her, and
she had a fever and a continual twitching
in her muscles. The symptoms were much
like St. Vitus’ dance.

as bad as ever.

medicines but tried the pills, and after
taking a dozen doses, she began to improve.
It was about the first of April when she
began, and by the middle of May, after
taking about eight boxes, she was entirely
“While ill, she lost twenty-eight pounds,
but now weighs more than ever before.
Her nerves are strong and she is in per-
fect health. We are all confident that Dr.
Willif/ms’ Pink Pills for Pale People cured
her, and I cheerfully recommend them in
all similar cases. “Mk9. E. A. Rybolt.” _

J. D. Jackson, of Alpine, has bought
eight head of fine Hereford hulls, which
he got from Kansas City, and paying
$200 per head for them. Thus fine stock
is fast becoming Texans, a fact indeed
I Castor beans are said to he a prolific
crop that our farmers might well look
into. The beans, which, as is well
known, are converted into castor oil,
and those raised in Texas grade very
high in amount of oil.
Sheep-shearing has begun at San
Angelo in earnest. One firm has con-
tracted to clip 20,500 head. The spring
clip of wool this year will be about
2,500,000 pounds—about 500,000 pounds
less than was clipped last year.

Throughout the length and breadth
of the panhandle the prevailing im-
pression is that the present year will
be one of unexampled prosperity to an
extent hitherto unknown in the annals
of that district, which means, of course,
The wheat fields around Denison are
as pretty as a picture. Some of the
wheat is heading out and will soon be
ready to cut if the weather remains fa-
vorable. A little warm dry weather
right at this time will soon ripen the
wheat in Grayson county, and the crop
this year promises to be better than
that even of last year, if conditions con-
The Wichita valley people have good
grounds for believing that they will this
year harvest a larger wheat crop than
ever before raised in the valley. Every
condition has thus far been in its favor,
and an immense acreage has been
planted. Reports from Miami, Roberts
county, state that the drouth there has
been effectually broken. The cattle loss
bas been very heavy, but it appears
now that there will be an abundant crop
of grass and that cattle from now on
At Clarendon, on the 10th, there was
one of the greatest downpours of rain
ever known in that section. The rain
was accompanied now and then by hail,
and windows, awnings and signboards
many out-houses and culverts and
suffered. The high wind demolished
bridges were washed away on the rail-
road. The whole country appeared in-
undated and it is said that over a foot
of water stood in the streets of the
town. All question now as to big crops
and a sufficiency of stock water in that
section has been definitely put to rest.
Unless there should occur now a suc-
cession of dry, hot winds, extending
over many days, nothing can now pre-
vent one of the largest crops being har-
vested that the Clarendon country ever
Parties recently from the panhandle,

their extermination have proved alto-

up with small ranches AVith herds of
stock and calves and lambs become
easier of access just in that proportion
has the great lobo increased in audac-
ity and numbers. In place of now
traveling in pairs, or even single, he

from Amarillo report severe losses on
farms between Amarillo and the big-
canyon. Thus far no means have been
found to rid the country of this pest
and probably will not be until farmers
tnrn out en masse, as they did in the
old days in the Argonne forest in
France, and in the Black forest in Bo-
hemia, when the whole country congre-
gated at a certain point, and Avith dogs
and guns, kept after the wolves until

One of the great troubles that rail-
road companies have had to contend
with in the past with both the old
style and the new M. C. B. couplers
was the falling of drawheads on the
tracks, resulting many times in disas-
trous wrecks. A year or two ago the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad adopted
a device to prevent just such occur-
rences, and has since attached it to all
its passenger equipment. The device
is quite simple, consisting merely of a
right-angled stealth 00k, which is
placed immediately beneath the coup-
ler on the draw-head, with a horizontal
arm projecting slightly at an angle to
the direction of the track. When the
draw-head falls the safety hooks not
only assist in jamming the draw-heads
together but absolutely prevent their
swaying from side to side, and thus
becoming disengaged. The steel hook
is placed in such a position that it
cannot be jammed or broken off in the
coupling of cars.
In actual practice this device has
proved exceedingly satisfactory, and
has not failed in a single instance.

a distinguished Methodist clergyman
whose first “appointment,” sixty-eight
years ago, carried him over a circuit
sixty miles in length. He preached
