No snow has yet fallen in this section of the valley, and our fine, balmy weath- er still continues. If there is any place under the sun that enjoys better weather this time of the year than do the people of Saguache county, we do not want to know it. We are satisfied with present conditions. We acknowledge receipt of an invita- tion to attend a banquet and entertain- ment to be given by the Moses Lodge of Odd Fellows this evening. Frank C.

A meeting of the Saguache Stock Growers association was held at the town hall, Saturday, Nov. 16, for the purpose of electing delegates to the 5th annual convention of the National Live Stock Association, to be held in Chicago Dec. 3 t,) 6 inclusive. The delegates elected were Horace Means, Wm.. Munro, E. Munro, Thos. H. Thompson, C. A. Scan- drett, J. E. Mitchell, Steve Kenney. Without doubt the most, if not all the delegates will attend the conventiou as the stock growers of Saguache county are all men of improvement in their line and will be able to pick up a good many new ideas that will be to their advantage.

Deafness Cannot be Cured I etting Thin is all right, if you are too fat; and all wrong, if too thin already. Fat, enough for your habit, is healthy; a little more, or less, is no great harm. Too fat, consult a doctor; too thin, persistently thin, no matter what cause, take Scott's Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil. There are many causes of get- ring too thin; they all come under these two heads: over- work and under-digestlon. Stop over-work, if you can; but, whether you can or not, take Scott's Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil, to balance yourself with your work. You can't live on it--true-but, by it, you can.
