When last he was with us he came to slay The beasts of the hills in relentless way, And his eyes were cold and his teeth set tight And his nerve Jacked up to the point of fight There was fearlessness in his poise of head. There was reckless dash in his hero tread, And the garb he wore on his well knit form Took the hearts of the mountaineers by storm. How tbe echosJumped when his rifle rang, What a song of destruction his bullets sangf How the lions clawed at their punctured sides Where the deadly pellets had cut their hides. And the wounded nionsters had fought for llfe Felt the keen, sharp stabs of his blood-flecked knife As he plunged it home with relentless stroke Of an arm as strong as the mountain oak. But now he cumes with an eye as mild As the peaceful eye of a little child, And with face all shorn of the cloud of war, And with smile of peace are his teeth ajar! And we list with Joy to his words Inspired, To his phrases with eloquence softly fired.

"I had a sever attack of bilious colic, got a bottle of Chamberlain s Colic,Chol- era and Diarrhoea Remedy, took two doses and was entirely cured," says Rev. A. A. Power, of Emporia, Kan. "My neighbor across the street was sick for a week, had two or three bottles of medi- cine from the doctor. He used them for three or four days without relief, then called in another doctor who treated him for some days and gave him no relief, so discharged him. I went over to see him the nex~ morning. He said his bowels were in a terrible fix, that they had been running off so long that it was almost bloody flux. I asked him if he had tried Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar- rhoea Remedy and he said 'No,' I went home and brobght him my bottle and gave h/m one dose, told him to take another dose in fifteen or twenty minu- tes if he did not find relief, but he took no more and was entirely cured. I thin~ it the best medicine I have ever tried." For sale by Saguache Pharmacy. Revenue Bill Never Passed in Legal Form. Pueblo, August 6.--Judge Dixon in the district court this morning rendered his decision in the case of the people ex tel. Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe rail- way rathe state board of equalization, holding that the revenue bill enacted by the thirteenth assembly was unconstitu- tional or rather that no such law has been in effect, as the senate had never voted on the bill, but only on an amend- ment as submitted by the conference committee. In his opinion Judge Dixon concludes: "First, The action of the house of rep- resentatives in placing the bill on final passage was in violation of section 22, ar- ticle 5, of the constitution, because said bill carried with it substantial amend- ments which had not been printed. "Second, That the action of the senate in adopting the report of the conference committee was constitutionally on the adoptiou only of the amendments con- tained therein, and was not a final pas- aage of the bill. "Third, That the bill being rendered nugatory by constitutional mandate the relaters are entitled to the relief prayed for. "Entertaining nodoubt whatever as to the correctnssa of these conoluaions, I deem it unnecessary to express any opin- ion on the first objection urged against sity, however urgent, can ever ~ustify a clear infraction of the fundamental law. In such a case to all arguments based upon public convenience or public pol- icy, the courts can make but one answer, 'What is written, is written.' The distinguishing feature of our Amer ican system of government is the liberty of the indivtdval and it is just as essen- tial to protect the individual from the oppression of the many as it is from the tyranny of the despot. To this end con- stitutional government is ordained, and under the broad shield of the constitu- tion,if justice reigns in the land, the humblest citizen may take refuge and say, 'Though I be alone, yet will I not be afraid.' "It is well for us to remember that the views and policies upon which we are now divided are ephemeral, but the con- stitution is permanent. It is well to re- member that the majority of today may be the minority of tomorrow, that the statutes of one session may be swept from the books at the uext, and that Ihose who now think they are justified in construing away the constitution, may shortly be emploring its protection. Our interests as adherents of this policy or that policy may pass away in the n/ght whle we sleep. The only interests that abide with hie are our interests as indi- vidual citizens of the commonwealth, which are secured and guaranteed by the constitution. "It behooves us therefore to look upon the instrument, not as a dead parchment to b%hidden from view or brought to light as the emergencies which we our- selves create may demand, but as the ever living, ever present supreme law the rigid enforcement of which at all times an d under all circumstances is es- sential to the l;erpetuation of free gov- ernment and the preservation of our lib- erties and as individuals. The writ is granted." Specific objections urged against the validity of the law as summed up by Judge Dixen are: "That the bill was passed after the legislative session had terminated by con- stitutional limitation, in violation of sac. 6, article 5. "Second,That the bill as authorized by the presiding officers of the two houses and signed by the governor was never in fact passed by the senate. "Third, That if the bill passed the gen- eral assembly, it carried with it substan- tial amendments which had not been printed, in violation of see. 22, article 5." The opinion covered forty pages of closely written legal cap and took one and one-half hours to deliver. Willard Taller represented the relators while Assistant Attorney General Morri- son represented the respondents. At the conclusion of the reading of the decision, Morrison asked that time be granted to prepare a bill of exveptmns to take the case to the supreme court. Astounded the Editor. Editor S. A. Brown of Bennettsville, S. C., was once immensely surprised. "Through long suffering from dyspep- sia," he writes, "my wife was greatly run down. She had no strength or v~ggr and suffered great distress from her stomach, but she tried Electric Bitters which helped her at once, and, after using four bottles, she is entirely well can eat anything. Its a grand tonic, and its gentle laxative qualities are splendid for to:pad liver." For indigestion, loss of appetite, stomach and liver troubles its a posj~ire, ~,,~r~,nteed cure.

Oh, what next will the shirt waist man take from the things he has to wear? And what will the net waist girl throw off the shoulders now so bare? The shirt waist man and the net waist girl go rolhcking down the way. Have we started a trend that is going to end in the old fig leaf some day.--Ex. If you have a baby in the house you will wish to know the best way to check any unusual looseness of the bowels or diarrhoea so common to small children O. P. Holliday, of Deming, Ind., who has an eleven months' old child ~ays: "Dar- ing the months of June and July our baby was teethingand took a running off of the bowels and sickness of the stom- ach. Ris bowels would move from five to eight times a day. I had a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar- rhoea Remedy in the house and gave him four drops in a teasponful of water and he got better at once."

They Struck it Rich It was a grand thing for this commu- idty that such au enterprising firm as Lord & Wilcox secured the agency for 1/~mg's New Discovery for Consumption, the wonderful remedy that has startled the world by its marvelous cures. ]?he furor of enthusiasm over it has boomed their business as the demand for it is immense. They give free trial bottles to sufferers, and positively guarantee it to cure coughs, colds, bronchitis, asthma croup and lung troubles. A trial proves its merit. Price 50 cents and $100, Pinkham Sa~s Prayers will not Bring Rain. Rev. H. W. Pinkham preached at Bethany Baptist church on the text: "He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sendeth rain on the just and unjust." Mathew, v, 45. From whict he attempted to show that the recent rain in the west fell simply as the result of a law of nature and that the special prayers offered had nothing to do with the case. He said although I. Kings states that Elijah's prayers were efficacious in pre- venting rain for three years, that was simply au Old Testament superstition, we have oUtgrown, and that Christ gave no encouragement to praying for mater. ial prosperity, but rather for spiritual blessings. He said: "If God frequently interposed and broke the course of natural law he would be doing no kindness, but the opposite. ! A woHd not under law, in whmh like causes sometimes produced unlike re- sults, one for example in which water occasionally flowed tip hill and wheat produced thistles, would be a crazy world. "Fire is always hot, and, therefore, we know how to act with reference to it. But if it were sometimes hot and sometimes cold, what should we do? It is because of the certainty of natural law that hu- man progress has been what it has.'! Mr. Pinkham believes that sometime the laws governing rainfall will be so well understood that rain can beproduc- ed by men whenever it is needed, and that good irrigation provisions are much more effective than prayer.--Times. Don't be satisfied with temporary re- lief from indigestion. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure permanently and completely re- moves this complaint.

We wish that every time a country gazeboo of a paper tells about some mau going about with a "grin on his mug 'cos it's a girl" or making some such funny remark because of the birth of a kid, could be frowned upon and made to give its news items in a decent, business like way. There is nothing funny about it and, besides, it gives all the praise to the father. The mother seems to bear no especially important part as a factor in the case.
