It has kept my scalp free from dandruff and has prevented my hair from turn- ing gray."-- Mrs. F. A. Souls, Billings, Mont. II There is this peculiar thing about Ayer's Hair Vigor--it is a hair food, not a dye. Your hair does not suddenly turn black, look dead and lifeless. But graduallythe old~olor comes back,--all the rich, dark color it used to have. The hair stops falling, too. $I.~ a Imltle. All dru|gists.

She had no strength or vigor lad 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 torpid liver." For indigestion, loss of appetite, stomach and "liver troubles its a positive, guaranteed cure.

Friend Bryan:--I write you a synopsis of the crop conditions of the several states through which I passed since leaving Colorado. In Kansas from the west line of the state to Dodge City, pastures Crops and stock look well. From Dodge almost to Emporia they have very poor pasture and crops. (Wheat excepted, they had a good crop of wheat all over the state.) Corn will scarcely make fod- der. I dropped off at Emporia and went down into Coffoy Co. I found pastures in fine condition there, the country looked as fresh and green as in May. Corn not fired badly. Will make abundance of good feed, but very little corn, as the tassel was killed by the excessive heat as soon as it came out a nd before the pol- len appeared. I stayed i- Coffey Co. about a week and saw quite a good deal of the country. The farmers there will have plenty of food, and some to spare. If the weather permits 90 per cent of the corn will be cut for fodder. One firm in Burlington has sold throe car loads of corn binders. As an example of the in- tentions of the farmers, on my place there is usually from 120 to 140 acres of corn grown each year, from 20 to 30 acres are usually cut for fodder. This year 130 acres will be cut. After leaving Coffey Co. for the east from Ealporia to Kansas City the crops are very spotted. Some fields look fairly well while others won't make fodder. taken all together, from information ob- tained from all sources, and with con- tinued favorable weather, Kansas will have about 40 per cent of a corn crop. Missouri, well I don't like to say any- thing about Missouri in regard to the drouth, as they are very touchy on that subject. If Kansas had caught it a lit. tie worse than Missouri, they wouldn't have cared, but as it is the other way they are not in the proper frame of mind to discuss the subject. The statistician who said that the drouth had damaged the state $100,000,000 ought to have went them $50,000,000 better. Southern Illinois, along the Vandalia line via Terre Haste to Indianapolis, Ind., is yet suffering for rain. Corn en- tirely ruined, scarcely worth cutting for fodder; pastures brown and bare. From Indianapolis to Columbus, Ohio, pasture better; corn crop fair; some good corn. Raining hard at Pittsburgh, Pa.; crops and pastures looking fine hero, saw the best corn hero of any place on my trip, and the finest fields of buckwheat I eve? ! saw. I haven't been able to quit the wooden legs yet. Respectfully yours, T. M. ALEXANDER. Don't bo satisfied with temporary re- lief from indigestion. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure permanently and completely re- moves this complaint. It relieves per- manently because it allows the tired stomach perfect rest. Dieting won't rest the stomach. Nature receives supphos from the food we eat. The sensible way to help the stomach is to use Kodol Dys- pepsia Cure, which digests what you eat and can't help but do you good.

Took a Shot at Mexican Pete. Walsenburg, Colo. Aug. 26"Mexican Pete Everett, the alleged prize fighter, came near having his career cut short hero by a bullet Saturday afternoon. Of late Everett has been hanging around Charlis Mazzone's saloon, much to the annoyaucs of the proprietor. Saturday noon the would-be "pug" was ordered out of the place. Everett complied un- der protest. During the afternoon Everett returned to the saloon and immediately started a row with Mazzono. The saloon keeper struck at Everett with a revolver, but the latter executed a sidestep and beat a hasty retreat for the door. Mazzone took a shot at the fleeing Mexican and missed his head by only a few inches. The bullet passed thr,~ugh the panel of the door and imbedded itself in a wall not four inches from the spot where Mazzone's little son was sitting. It is said that Everett is s~ill hot footing for the hills.--Post. Catholic Church Notice.

The Burlington route announces a rate )f $36.90, less than one fare from Pueblo, Colorado Springs and Denver, and Inter- mediate puints, to Cleyelapd, Ohio, and return. Thorate from other points in Colorado will be one fare added to the nearest point from which the ~6.00 rate applies. All agents will be instructed to sell through tickets on September 7th to 10th inclusive, routed via the Burlington if so desired by the purchaser. These tmkets wilbbe limited to September 15 with privilege of extension to leave Cleveland as late as Octob0r 8~h~ No other line can offsr a nheapor rate or bet- tot service. One can leave De~er on the Burlington's famous Chicago special at 4 p. m. and reach Cleveland the sec- ond morning at 7.40, the only~ cl~apge of cars being at Chicago.
