RANCH, STOCK, MINES. A syndicate of Denver, Salt Lake and Los Angeles capitalists, headed by O. P. Poesy, have purchased the Gold Roads mine from Joseph Burkhardt and Byron Erickbrecher, of Los Angeles, Gala. The price paid is $500,000. The property comprisea a group of six mines lying twenty.five mileas north of Kingman, Ariz., and about nine miles from the Colorado river. The vein averages four- teen feet in width, and carries an average value of $20 per ton in gold. E. E. Hatcher, of Pagosa Springs, Ar- obuleta county, has sent his buck herd of 500 head to an alfalfa farm near Farm- ington, New Mexico, for the winter. Many of the larger range masters are ~iscarding the open-wooled sheep and are going back to the Merinos, using mostly the improved strains of that breed. Thisi may have quite an effect on the mutton business of the future and while consid- i sting this phase of the topic we must not forget that the people who are becoming educated to the mutton taste will have to be provided With meat for all time to oome.--Field and Farm. A contagious disease much resembling black-leg is attacking cattle and causing the death of many in certain sections. The nature of the disease and the manner in which cattle are attacked would indi- cate that it ia not black-leg but may be sympathetic anthrax While it is simi- lar to black-leg in many particulars it is[ not contagious as is black-leg from ant. mal to animal. This form ofr_anthrax is spread from beast to beast by buzzards and vermin that prey on the carcasses of dead animals. Vermin may carry the germs to watering troughs where they attack cattle that come to drink. Cattle may be made immune to the disease by vaccinatiug with black-leg preventive se- rum.--Field and Farm. t~ The big cattle feeders in the southern part of Kansesintend to handle a liberal number of steers the coming season. These men usally feed from 200 to 1,500 head each season. The smaller feeders will in many instances quit the business this year. Ben Garland and M. C. Campbell, two of the heaviest operators in range cattle, will take on a considera- ble number to feed during the winter. They have secured a lot of alfalfa hay in Colorado and mean to use it in fattening ateers for the market. A good deal of cottonseed meal will be fed, a proceed- ing which while not entirely s new one with Kansas cattlemen is one that has never been attempted extensively before. Feeders find it cheaper to use thin feed than to handle corn alone and on that account have purchased heavily of the meal. There will be a fair sprinkling of half to thrRe-quarter fat steers going on during the winter, but precious few fin- ished cattle will be shipped.--Field and Farm. Colorado is already excelling New York in the quantity and quality of the apples produced. If any farmer thinks that the propagation of an orchard here in these mountains is simply a question of planting the trees he will find himself seriously mistaken. We have kept close watch of Colorado orchards for more than twenty.five years and are fully as- sured that great skill and care must be used in growing trees under our trying conditions. By careless handling an or- chard may be killed almost any season. Old trees are less likely to be killed than young ones but old trees are killed fre. quently by allowing them to grow too late in the season. It requires some skill to kno~ just when to turn the water off in order to let the trees ripen. Then it is very necessary to have the water so under command as to soak the ground just before it freezes. This wetting pre- paratory for winter should be given within the next ten days if the weather remains open.--Field and Farm. At Bonanza the Weems people are building a f00-ton mill to treat ore from the Raleigh, which has been placed in shape for immense production by but- ting the ore at depth with a tunnel. The new mill ia at the mouth of the tunnel and will likely be ready to treat ore early in the spring. The Raleigh ore was tested in the Copper Star mill and a saving of 86 per cent of the values was affected. The new mill will use the same process. The failure of some of the mills in the Bonanza district is for the simple reason that the process is not adaotable to the character of the ores. There is a world of ore in the district that is easy of ac- ccas but it nearly all contains zinc and climes very badly. Again, there are very few properties that produce ore of the lame kind, so that custom mills have a bard time in making a success. A smelt- ing process seems to be more in demand than mills. Certainly it would seem wise to absolutely know that a process is adapted to the ores of a district, or to ores of certain mines, before putting it in.--Salida Record. 8&red His Llfe.

State And General News Condensed For Our Country Readers. Senator Hanna has given $5,000 as his subscription to the Cleveland committee of the National McKinley Memorial se- aGitation. China has asked Japan to lend one general and fifty officers to drill the Chi- nese troops, and also to lend experts to reorganize the Chineas financial and po- lice departments. The engagement is announced of Miss Helen Hay, eldest daughter of Secretary of State Hay, to Payne Whitney, second son of William C. Whitney, formerly sec- retary of the navy. Capt. Perry of the Iowa has refused to allow Colombian government troops tel travel over the Isthmian railway and the people of Panama are hostile to Ameri cans as a consequence. George M. Pullman, son of the late sleeping car magnate, died at San Mateo, Gala., last Wednesday, from acute pneu- monia. He was recently married to a San Francisco divorcee. David Nation has been granted a di- vorce from his wife, Mrs. Carrie Nation, 'erhe Joint Smasher." The court exon- erated Mrs. Nation from the charge of cruelty to her husband, and divided the property. Young Corbett, of Denver, succeeded in "knocking out" Terry McGovern, of Brooklyn, in the second round, at a prize fght in Hartford, Conn., last week. Cor- bets now holds the featherweight cham- pionship. On the west hound train that was wrecked in Michigan last week were 125 Italians, on their way to rrinidad, where they were to work in the coal mines. Not more than half of them came out of the wreck alive. President Roosevelt has removed Win. M. Jenkins, governor of Oklahoma, and appointed Thee. B. Ferguson as his sue- censor. He was removed because of ira- proper connections with a contract be- tween the territory and a sanitarium company. A~cablegram has been received at the state department from Consul General Gudger, dated at Panama, saying that the Liberals have been completely de- feated and that the government forces are in possesoion of Colon, the Liberals surrendering and evacuating the city. Kansas is experiencing its second wa- ter famine for this year. From numer- ous parts of the state comes the com- plaint that the water supply is practically exhausted. Waterworks companies say that the situation, so far as the water supply is concerned, is as serious as last summer. A meeting of the Grand Army of the Republic will take place at Chicago, De- comber 12, when the question of select- ins a city for the next annual encamp- ment will come up for consideration. Denver, Atlantic City, and Washington, D. C. are figuring most prominently in the contest for the meeting. The United States government is pre. paring to send relief to the 115 Nome miners who are reported to be stranded at Unalaska. The revenue cutter Mc- Cutloch is being conditioned for the trip, and the government is only await- ing more specific information before dis- patching the cutter on the mission of relief. The Chinese are preparing to make a vigorous fight against the re-enactment of the Geary exclusion law. A procla- mation has been issued by the Chinese Six Companies requiring every Chinese in the United States to contribute at once the sum of $1, the fund thus real- ized to be used in the effort to defeat ex- clusion. The industrial commission has iasuedI a report on railway labor in the United States. It shows that railway employes! in this country constitute an army of nearly 1,000,000 people with probably nearly 5,000,000 people dependent on the wages paid by railroads. The report says that for years to come the railroads will absorb an increasing number of em- ployee. A letter received from Mani!la saya General Chaffee has recommended that Aguinaldo be brought to this country. It is stated that he has been detected in carrying on a treasonable correspondence and trying to stir up strife. Aguinaldo is a close captive but advices received say Charles believes the leader's presence in the islands is responsible for the in- surgents' recent activity. In his special report on the Philippines, Secretary Root declares that conditions are much better than had been antici- pated a year ago. The Filipinos are be- ginning to understand that the promises made by the United States are to be ful- filled and the commission is bringing about general confidence. The situation does not, however, permit the abandon- ment of military government throughout the islands, especially in the more un- settled sections. The appraisers report on the estate of the late President McKinley shows that the deceased died possessed of personal and goods and chattels worth $2,055.99, securities, bank deposits and life insur- ance, $133,105.15, moneys, $129.15, total personal estate, $135,890, of which $60,. 132.19 was life insurance. The real es- tate was not appraised as under the will it goes to Mrs. McKinley for hfe and at her death to the family. It is believed to be worth from ~00~000 to $75,000. Cuba And Tbe Tariff. Probably the most concrete phase of the tariff question tbat will present itself in the near future will have to do with the commercial relations between Cuba and the United States. Every business interest in the island of Cuba realizes keenly that permanent prosperity means !the admission of Cuba sugar and tobac- co to the American market, either with- out duty or else at greatly reduced rates. Cuban independence will be a very empty privilege if favorable access to the American market is denied. It has been the belief in Cuba that the conces- sion to the United States of a series of coaling and naval statious was to be met by trade concessions that would restore the prosperity of Cuban agriculture. Rather than suffer exclusion from the American market the Cubans would pre- fer full annexation, with the necessary sequel of free trade. Against the admis- sion of Cuban sugar on especially favor- able terms will be found arrayed the cane augur interests of Louisiana and the beet sugar interests of the north and west. Just where the so-called sugar trust is arraying itself on this question is evidently quite puzzling to the news- papers, for some of them declare it to be on one side, and some of them are sure th'at it is on the other. The truth prob- ably is that the American Sugar Refin- [ery ccmpany is simply proposing, in any case, to maintain the lead in the manu- facture and sale of the finished product, and it conld probably adjust its business to almost any kind of tariff arrange. ment, It has been understood that the recent large increase in the capital of the ougar trust has been devoted to the purchase of sugar lands in Cuba, and to preparation for a prospective policy of reciprocity, or of a~nexation and free trade. As our regular readers are aware this Review has always shown a keen in- terest in the development of the beet su-~ gar industry, but we have also believed that broad statesmanship calls for a pol- icy looking toward full freedom of trade between the United States and the an- nexed islands, and that Cuba in due time ought to become a part ()f the United States.--From the Progress of the World in the American Monthly Review of Re- views. With the restoration of order and open traffic on the isthmus of Panama, it is ex- pected that the navy department will be able to withdraw some of the United States war ships now on duty in thatI quarter, and it is probable that one ship will be withdrawn on either side on the isthmus. Mrs. J. Fred Meyers, living near Sioux City, Iowa, wrapped her 5 months old~ baby in a blanket, put her in the oven of the kitchen stove to keep warm, andi went out into the yard to gather fuel. When half au hour later she returned the fire in the stove had blazed up and the room was filled with smoke. Rush- ing to the oven she found the blanket and the clothes in flames. The baby was dead and its arms and legs were burned to a crisp. The London Daffy Mail, which has been inquiring into the cause of the trade depre~ion in Germany, says that many of thegreat merchants of yesterday standi . . i today ruined. Manufacturing clhes are full of hungry men. Numbers of work-] shops are closed, and altogether closed,! and others are greatly reducing their output. Germany attempted too much and k reaping the inevitable result. Bad financing, over-capitalization and excess of orvdit, are mentioned as the causes which the ingenuity and skill of German workers could not overcome. THE HOl~tlE GOLD GUilE.

O, Taxlor Whlskles~ of superior excellenee~ Some Interesting Facts About Boiling O~@~p.~,~.~O~....~D0~O~O Water. It may seem presumptuous to suggest that few people know how to boil water, but such is the case. The boiling point, 8Pace Reserved under ordinary atmospheric pressure (sea level), is 212 Fahrenheit; this point i changes according to the altitude. When bubbles form on the bottom of the kettle come clear to the surface and rupture quietly, without making an ebullition, we have simmering. At this point the ther- mometer should register 180 Fahrenheit and it is at this temperature that we cook meats and make soups. When the bubbles begin to form on the sides and surface of the vessel and come toward Too busy getting the top of the water, there is a motion in the water, but it has not really reached boiling point. It is only when the thor- mometer reaches 212 Fahrenheit and the water is in rapid motion that it can be said to boil; aud the atmospheric gases still continue to be given off with the steam for a considerable time after the water has commenced to boil rapidly; in fact, it is diffinult to determine when the last traces have been expelled. It is safe to suppose, however, that ten min- utes' boiling wi]l free the water from its gases, make it tasteless, and render it un- fit for the m~king of tea, coffee or other light infusions of delicate materials.- Mrs. S. T. R~rer, in the December La- dies' Home Journal. t Asthma "One of my daughters had a terrible case of asthma. We tried almost everything, but without re- lief.
