A Model Truck Farm.
A new departure iu the annals
of stock ranching in this section is
to be made at Santa Gertrudes the
famous ranch of Mrs. 11. M. King
where a model irrigated truck
farm is to be established. The
Alice Echo reports that Mr. Ray
of that city will superintend the
A Heroic Girl.
A brave little girl in Chicago
saved 300 school children from
destruction by her courage. The
school house was on fire and little
Ethel Parker only 13 years of age
sat at the piano and played a two-
step for the 300 children to keep
time by while marching out of the
burning building. When all of
the children were our of the burn
ing ounumg sue tried to es
cape and was almost suffocated
by the dense smoke before she
succeeded. She was a heroine and
we can see what music can do.
Had it not been tor this girl and
music probably many liyes would j
have been lost. Moltou Eagle.
Tlie Royal Month and tlio Royal
Sudden changes of weather are es-
pecially trying and probably to none
more so than to the scrofulous and con
sumptive. The progress of scrofula dur-
ing a normal October is commonly great.
We never think of scrofula its bunches
cutaneous eruptions and wasting of the
bodily substance without thinking of
the greatsgood many sufferers from it
have derived from Hood's Sarsaparilla
whose radical and permanent cures of
this one disease are enough to make it
the most famous medicine in the world.
There is probable not a- city or town
where Hood'a Sarsaparilla has not prov-
ed its merit in more homes than one in
arresting and completely eradicating
scrofula which is almost i serious and
as much to be feared as its near relative
. Jot Gunter Improving.
Austin Tex. Jan. 7. The re-
port that Col. Jot Gunter the well
known Democratic politician aud
Stoekmau is seriously ill in Cali-
fornia 'where he went several
weeks ago for his health; proves to
b& rin founded? Major" J. H.
Amsbrong of this city has reeeiv-
w letter from Colonel Gunter
written only a few days ago in
which hu says that his health is
improving aud that he has gained
seven pounds siuce taking up Iws
residenae at Santa Barbara. This
is gratifying news to Colonel
Gunter's friends in Texas.
Problem In Tree Preservation
St. Lous Mo. Jan. 7. -Pjohab
ly the largest contract ever let in
tlfk country for the transplanta
tion of big trees is that just enter
ed into for the world's fair in this
city. The site of the world's fair
is .Forest park in which there are
many large trees. Actuated by a
desire to preserve as many as pos-
sible of the trees and to have their
shade iu the broad avenues of the
exposition the director of works
will have 700 trees each 12 to IS
inches in diameter lifted and
replanted where they will remain
permanently. Special machiues
will be used and the transplanting
will be done while the trees are
dormant and the ground is deeply
frozen so as to carry as much
earth with the roots as possible.
Very great cary is required for a
successful operation and the trees
will be given the best of care and
attention iu order to assure their
thrifty growth. The trees .are
principally maples and elms.
The Texas W.orld's fair com-
mission met at Dallas and 'decided
that Texas should Improperly rep-
resented at St. Louis.

to have paid $1000000 to date

Indian School Boys.
The work of educating youug In-
diaus in the west is at. times dif-
ficult but it is seldom dull. If
the teachers must confess to a feel- j
ing of doubt as to. iheir success
with boys bearing such names as
Daniel Red Eves and Andrew
Yellow Thunder the' can at least
console themselves with the fact
that the correction of "composi-
tion" is more diveitinir than in
some eastern schools. The superin-
tendent of the Lemhi reservation
in Idaho is Mr. Maekey. He has
preserved proofs of his pupils' I
work in English in the form of
various e.says written by the In-
dian boys anil in seven.l notes of
excuse tie re Daniel Red ICyes'
idea of the school iu which' he is a
"We learn 1jmv work in garden
and" cut wood make fence and
many hard work. The girls in
house sew and wash dress and cook-
ing dinner I don't like go to
school because my father he tell
me' 1 don't want to go to school.
Thai all I have to say or want to
sny about a tchcol."
Daniel had a reasonably good
opinion of himself as this excuse
sent t.o his teacher indicates:

uoon. M3 horse all nin away yes-
terday evening and 1 didn't find.

Rather more promising is the
attitude of yonug Mr. Yellow
Thunder who expresses coutrition
for a fault :
