No one can go through the wide terri-

Hut let me warn the amateurcow man
that In the great grazing reglona It
takes a good many acres or thin grass to

My Intention however. In approach-

the way is anything but an Industry
being in fact more like the seductive
manner whereby a promlsory note ac
quires two per cent per month without
even stopnlnir to spit on Its hands was
to refer Incidentally to the proposition
or an English friend of mine. This
friend seeing at once the great magni-
tude of the cow Industry and the neces-
sity for more and more cowboys has
suggested toe tuea ot ettauiisning cow-
boys' college or training tcbool for self-
made young men who ilt tire to hecomo

mine explosion at Newtutrg have been
received. From present nppearanoes at
least Si lives nnd In all probability 10
more have been sacrlllced many of the
dead being most respected citizens. At
the hour named whllo the day shift of
miners wero nt work In the mine which
Is located near the outskirts of town
the air was suddenly reat with a most
tremendous explosion from the deep
shaft or the colliery. A dense cloud or
mingled smoke and vapor arose liOO feet
in ine air. a ruin was at once mane ror
the mouth or the mine. In n moment
hundreds or citizens had congregated
about the shaft their faces filled with
consternation and alarm. The sound
was heard 10 miles away.
It Is now supposed that .17 men wero
Imprisoned and the prevailing opinion
Is that all are dead although a few min-
ers express u hope that some of them
may uavo esoapeu tuo eiiects or mo ex

"Don't You Dare to Kiss My Ilaby" Is
the title ot the latest piece of alleged
original poetry that has started on 11
rounds. Tho bard sets forth In emphat-
lo language the dangers of the practice
of baby kissing. The communication of
rontaglous(llsease by kissing so often
the subject of warnings against farewell
kisses of the dead. Is the climax of tbe
poem The young and tender years ot
babies make them peculiarly liable to
danger from diseases which may be
transmitted by kissing. If foad mothers
will only take tbe hint and refuse to let
people kiss their babies unless they have
a special right to do to.lnttead of urging
people to Uss them. It would be a great
relief to Presidents and candidates for
