Paraguay and All Her Wonders
Brought to Chautauqua
For First Time.
E. A. Brinton Recounts Episodes o'
Five Year Residence In a Strange.
One of the plesant surprises of the
Chautauqua will be the lecture by Ed
ward A. Brinton on "Paraguay—^he
Lund of War and Women."
Brinton is qualified for this job as
few men available for Chautauqua aire,
He spent years in the heart of Para
guny and studied the people in a palns-
a great traveler and recently finished a
tour much longer than the distance
around the earth.
He delivers an exhaustive study of
Paraguay, her people and her institu
tions. He treats In an interesting way
of her vicious element, her women, the
social evil, polygamy, monetary sys
tem, laws, sanitation—in fact, the very
things that all students want to hear
about Latin America.
While in Paraguay Mr. Brinton had
some dramatic experience and knows
the color of native blood and the force
of the lawless element. He weaves
many a thrilling story into his lecture.,
and some people have said it is better
than the movies as an entertainment
His anecdotes are rich and spicy.
There is not a dull moment from flnpti
to last. He imparts as much Informa
tion in an hour as one could gathar/in
many days of study.

THE, COMMERCIAL. CLUBS
BACK THE LITTLE BEND
Pierre, S. D.—The Pierre Commer
cial club is gratified at the unani
mous backing of the Commercial clubs
of the state in the effort to secures
te development of tfce Little Bend
power project in 'the Missouri river
under government control for the in
stallation of a government nitrate
plant at a point far enough inland
that it would be safe from any sudden
rush in case of an attack upon the
country by a foreign power. This
project has been surveyed and shown
that it would develop one hundred
thousand horse power, and there is a
strong movement in the northwest to
bring the plant to this section, and
the movement originating in this city,
is getting a lot of northwestern help.

TREATMENT FOR SORE
SHOULDERS ON HORSES,
The feet of no two persons are
alike, consequently they cannot wear
the same shoes comfortably unless
they are first adjusted: by several
days of preliminary wear. During
this period of adjustment the wear
er's feet become tired, and blisters,,
.callouses and corns, may appear.
Horses' shoulders are like men's feet
in this reject. A horde wears a col
lar today that fits- binat. tomorrow one
that is too small, and the next day one
that is his size, but does not can
term to his shouMftrs, The result of
such management is sore shoulders
nd necks that refuse to Heal even
vith the diligent application of a
never failing cure. It follows there
fore, that tfee first requisite for the
prevention of soar® shoulders is a per
fect fitting collar.
There are numerous remedies for
sore shoulders that give satisfactory
results, providing all other conditions
are favorable. The application of
^rhite lead grour.d in linseed oil, the
Wind used for- mixing paint, /every
evening after the collar is removed,
has proven satisfactory. A lotion
composed of six drams of lead ace
tate and the same quantity of zinc sul
phate in or.e pint of water makes a
satisfactory wash for sore necks. Ap
