DECENIBER i2, 1901. The face ot the valley is covered with ! ill about an inch of the beautiful this morn- ing, more snow than has fallen this win- ter before, and by the looks of the sky there is more ~o follow. Never in the history of our country have we had a president who seemed to know and appreciates the needs of every section of our land as does President Roosevelt. We trust that he will con- tinue to the end of his term as he has started out. I. N. Stevens of the Colorado Springs Gazette, and J ames B. Belford, the "red headed rooster of the Rockies" have been in Washington the past week, and it ie claimed that they had an interview with the president on the Colorado political situation. Roosevelt is no doubt suffi- ciently advised in the premises. Under a new rule of the state board of health, after Jan. 1st a burial permit must be obtained from the local health officer by the undertaker or friend be- foreany burial will be permitted. The next rule will probably require one to get a license before he will bc allowed to die, Out how will they regulate births ? We are pleased to know that what we say iu our paper is read and commented on by our people. In fact it would be little eatisfaction to us if our writings did not attract some attention. The ar- ticle of last week on "The Town We Live In" must have been appreciated by our citizens, for we have heard many comments on the suggestions made, and we believe that our endeavor to improve existing conditions in town will prove succelsful. An English photographer has devised a scheme for making birds take their own photographs. A bait of fat is placed on an electrical wire which is so connected with a camera that when the bait is re- moved the camera shutter is released, giving an instantaneous exposure of the monastics plate. What is the reason some of our ama- teur photographers cannot follow this plan. and get a picture of a bear, lion or deer, by setting a camera in the moun- tains and using the proper bait. Chas. D. Ford, chairman of the repub- lican state central committee, and also register of the U. S. land office at Den- ver, has announced that he has placed his resignation as chairman in the hands of the secretary to be acted upon at the next meeting of the committee. D. C. Bailey, U. S. Marshal for Colorado, ham also resigned as chairman of the Arapa- hos county central committee, probably in response to a request sent by the president to all federal office holders asking them to relinquish official posi- tions in party organizations. It is to be hoped that these positions will be filled by men who will be able to bring to- gether in harmony all factions of the re- publican party. Tobacco is the Best Insecticide. Most of the insects common to house plants dislike tobacco as much as does the cleanly housewife. The best way to use it as an insecticide upon window plants is to secure a good handful of to- bacco stems, place them in an old basin, pour boiling water upon them, and let them stand for several hours. Drain off the liquid into a basin or tub deep enough for immersing the tops of young plants in and dilute it with warm water until it shows only a faint tint of brown. Then take up the plants one at a time, and hold them, tops down, in the water washing them clean.--December Ladies' Home Journal. Crestone May ltave A Smelter. It is practically assm'ed that Crsetone ie to have a pyritic smeher in operation within the next 90 days, according to O. C. Loder, representing the Loder Pyritic Reduction company of Denver, who has been investigating the tumoral resources of the Creetone district during the past week. Mr, Loder reports that he found that the Creetone district has the necemary ores in quantities sufficient to justify the erection of a plant here, and if $6 ores can be treated at a profit, as is claimed for thm system of reduction, there are groat things in store for this district, as the supply of $6 to $10 ore is almost un- limitedl although most of it ie too refrac tory to be successfully treated by ordi- nary milling procseses.--Republican.

The general health of the pupils in the public school is much better than usual at this time of the year. The mumps have not been in school as reported some time ago. While several of the school children have had them,yet they have not boon on the school ground during such time, and none of those who have had the mumps caught them at school. It may be that a more en3oy. able exercise than usual during inter- mission is responsible for the better health of the children. We will have two weeks of holiday from Friday Dec. 22, till Monday, Jan. 6. The Christmas Dinner. In spite of the fact that the word dys- pepsia moans literally bad cook, it will not be fair for many to lay the blame on the cook if they begin the Christmas din- ner with little appotiN~ and end it with distress or nausea. It may not be fair for any to do that, let us hope so for the sake of the cookf The disease dyspep- sia indicates a bad stomach, that is a weak stomach, rather than a bad cook and for a weak stomach there is nothing else equal to Hood's Sarsaparilla. Itgives the stomach vigor sad tone, cures dys- pepsia, creates appetite, and makes eat- ing the pleasure it should be. Proposals For Stationery And Supplies.

The largest sum ever paid for a pre- scription, changed hands in San Fran- cisco, August 30, 1901. The transfer in- volved in coin and stock $112,500.00 and was paid by a party of businem| men for a specific for Bright's Disease and Dia- betes, hitherto incurable disesNs. They commenced the serious investi- gation of the specific Nov. 15,1900. They interviewed scores of the cured and tried it out on its merits by putting over 3 dozen cases on the treatment and watch- ing them. They also got physicians to name chronic, incurable cases, and ad- ministered it with the physicians for judges. Up to August 25, 87per cent. of the test cases were either well or pro- greasing favorably. There being but 13 per cent of failures the parties were satisfied and closed the ,transaction. The proceedings of the in- i vestigating committee and the chemical reports of the test cases were published and will be mailed free on application. Address John J.

"I suffered for years with a bronchial or lung trouble and tri~d various reme- dies but did not obtain permanent relief until I oommeuced using One Minute Cough Cure," writes Roy. James Kirk- man, evangelist of Belle R|ver, Ill. "I have no hesitation in recommending it to all sufferers from maladies of this kind."

Very pleasant to take, never fails and is really a favorite with the children They like it. Saguache Pharmacy. Notice For Publication.
