A Squaw's Su1etae.
About the lt of November ladt 014
kaneache, the Ute chief, accompanio
by a number of Apache squaws anc
Ohildren, encamped on the ranch o
Thomas U. Boggs, on the Trampere
Creek, in New Mexico. As the smiall
pox has been killing hundreds oj
Indians and .Mexicans in that region,
31r. Boggs felt suspicious that there
might be some cases among this band,
but on being questioned the Indlana
denied the pr esence of the disease
among them. In about a week after
the arival of the party, a squaw, the
mother of two ehildron, was taken with
the disease. This caused the Indians
to leave suddenly for the hills, leaving
the squaws to take care of themselves.
About nine days afterwards the sick
woman died, and her mother (grand
mother to the remaining child) took
the little one with her and dled to the
hills, leaving the dead squaw, tepee,
robes and blankets and taking up her
abode about hall a mile from Mr.
Boggs' house. That gentleman had
*the dead Equaw buried, and the tepee
and other property remain where
they wore left. 'he old squaw
and the child were provided
with food ly Airl. Boggs, and seemed
perfectly happy. On the Wednesday
following persons at 3lr. Iloggs' houso
heard, as they supposed, the child
making a nolse. Mr. Charles Boggs
went to search for the squaw and child,
and atter a long hunt succeeded In
fluding a hut In the timber where they
had been living. A horrible sight
met his view on his arrival; the ofd
woman lay dead and cold, covered
witi blood. Sie had takeni half a pair
of sheep-shears and driven it into her
heart. The little child was sitting be
side the dead squaw, crying and strlk
lIg her with a stick, talking to her in
the Indian language, and vainly en
deavoring to make her get up. 'The old
woman, however, was pa stawakening,
and the little one's griefaemted luicon
solable. All of the persoiis at. the
house hastened to the scene itid sev
eral of ttia enadeivored to coax the
0hid a1WILy 11roi the dead body of its
granditiother, but without. success.
T he little one could not understand
that its naturl protector was beyond
reidtering it atiy aid, and with brute
instinct was loath to leave. AIr. Boggs
kindly took the child and it then walked
to his hioise. 'I lie little unifortuatte's
eloulihig was covered with blood, and
on stripping it, its new protectors
found a deep gash directly over the
lieart,whiere the old squaw had evident
ly phinged the blade of the shears,with
the Intention of taki Ing the little one's
life as well its her ow n. The murderess
had failed to etriko the child's heart,
but it was thought, to be bleeding in
terilly and it, Is probably dead by
t hiis tine. There 'was no appeara.ee
of inall-pt x about the dead woman or
child, iai1d it is nIore tha111 probible

To GAT A LAnOE YIELD OF RI0n
MxIr.-If a large yield of rich milk is
desired, give your cows, every day,
water slightly salted, in which bran
has been stirred at the rate of one quart
to two gallons of water. You will find
if you have not tried this daily prac
tice, that your cows will give 25 per
cent more milk immediately under the
effects of it, and will become so accus
tomed to the diet as to refuse to drink
clear water, unless very thirsty. Prof.
J. W. Sanborn, Superintendent of the
college farm, Hanover, N. H., reports
ex perments in feeding cows, giving
full details of weights of each kind of
feed, of milk and butter yield, and the
weightu.of the animals at the begin
ning and end of each period. In sum
ming up he says: "deal will make
more milk than bran, I no longer lies
itate to say. The change in the butter
product Is remarkable; in changing
from meal to bran there was a loss of
17-7 per cent in the butter-producing
capacity of nilk ; in changing from
bran to meal there was a gain in the
butter-producing capacity of milk of
21-8 per cent.'' "The results in weigh

DR. H. R. STrBNs:
Dear Bir .-I feel very grateful for what your
valuable medicine, Vegotine, has done in my
family. I wish to express my thanks by inform
ing you of the wonderful cure of my son; also,
to let you know that Vegetine is the best mcdl
oine I ever saw for CInLLa, SHAKRs, FEVEn and
Aous. My son was sick with measles in 1878,
which left him with HiD-Joint disease. My son
suffered a great deal of pain all of the time;-the
ain was so great he did nothing Dut cry. The
octors did not help him a particle, he could not
lift his foot from the floor; he could not move
without crutches. I read your advertisement
in the "Louisville Courier-Journal," that Vege
tine was a great Blood Purifier and Blood Food.
I tried one bottle, which was a great benefit.
lie kept on with the medicine. gradially gain
Ing. He has tasken eighteen bottles in all, and
he is comletely restored to health; walks with
out crutches or cane. He is twenty years of
age. I have a younger son, fifteen years of ago,
whto is subject to CBILLS. Whenever he feels
one coming on, he comes in, tAkes a dose of
Vegetine, and that is the last of the Chill. Veg
otine leaves no bad effect upon the system like
most of the med eines recommended for Chills.
I cheorfully recommend Vegetine for such com
plaints. I think It is the greatest medicine In
