of which was a liberal investment in

stating tnnt lie was on horseback and
would allow him to "ride and tie" on
tho way home. They left shortly af

Crown King stage road immediately
south of the city limits, Itowe stop

seated himself oh the right of Par

remarked that he believed the two
Smitns Harney and .Mm, 'would be
elected, basing Ills judgment on the
number of Democrats he hnd heard

Howe ordered Parsons from the pre
mises and went to his room for n
hhjitgun as Parsons was leaving. Par
sons stepped into the next room find

when Howe returned with the shotgun.
The gun exploded, Howe testified, ac
cidentally, the charge passing through
the easing of tho door, part of it
lodging on Parsons' stomach between
the cuticle nnd his undershirt.
Parsons fell to the lloor believing
thnt ho watt mortally wounded. Ho
dragged himself from the room to the
outside of tho building with the as
sistance of Mrs. Pete.

Lard is a Foe to Digestion
Pork in any form is indigestible, and most people cannot eat it without sub
sequent discomfort. It therefore follows that food prepared from lard, which is
nothing more or less than hog-fat, is of necessity indigestible.
Cottolcnc is made from Cotton Seed oil refined so perfectly that it is abso

You know how rich and nourishing Olive oil is. Do you know that cotton
seed oil and olive oil are almost exactly the same in chemical properties? Olive
oil is too expensive for general use in frying and shortening Cottolcnc gives
the same results.
Having no odor or flavor, and taking up none, Cottolcnc once melted up can
