Aysr's Cherry Pectoral
Has preserved the lives of great numbers
of persons, by arresting the development 0 f
Laryngitis, Bronchitis, Pneumonfti,
and Pulmonary Consumption, and by
the cure of those dangerous maladies, It
should be kept ready for use in every
family where there are children, as it is a
medicine far superior to ail others in the
treatment of Croup, the alleviation of
"Whooping Cough, and the cure of Colds
and Influenza, ailments peculiarly inci
dental to childhood and youth. Prompti
tude in dealing with all diseases of this
class is of the utmost importance. The
loss of a single day may, in many cases,
entail fatal consequences. Do not waste
precious time in experimenting with
medicines of doubtful efficacy, while the
malady is constantly gaining a deeper
hold, but take at once the speediest ap«J
most certain to cure,

EPPS'S COCOA!
BREAKFAST.
m "By a thorough knowledge of the natural
laws which govern the operations of digestion
and nutrition, and by a careful application of the
fine properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr. F.pps
has provided our breakfast tables with a deli
cately flavored beverage which may save us
many heavy doctors' bills. It is by tho judicious
use of such articles of diet that a constitution
may be gradually built up until strong enough to
resist every tendency of disease. Hundreds of
subtile maladies are floating around us ready to
attack wherever thero is a weak point. We may
escape many a fatal shaft by keeping ourselves
well fortified with pure blood and a properly
nourished frame."— Civil Service Gazette.

LIVINGSTON, M. T.
The Denver "of the Northwest—ls the terminal
point of three divisions of tho Northern Pacific
Railroad. It is located as the geographical cen
tor of that line. !t haa had a most m&rrelo'ne
growth.

The Branch lino to the Yellowstone National
Park has its terminal point hero, and all the im
mense travel for that famous resort is compelled
to stop here from a few hours' time to a number
of days. The principal chops of the railroad
company between Brainerdand the Pacific Ocean
are now being built here. They will give em
ployment to probably 1000 men. Pino timber ia
plenty in the surrounding country, and various
sawmills in the immediate vicinity of tho town
furnish work for hosta of employes. The valleys
of the Yellowetone, Shields and Smith rivers ara
vast and very rich in agricultural resources, and
are well settled. Their trade is entirely tributary
to Livingston, while magnificent cattle ranches
abound in every direction; vast mines of true bi
tuminous coal, which am bo coked for 1% cents
per ton; also rich iron mines are within two to
four miles from town, a d are being worked.
The gold placer mines of Emigrant Gulch, Beat
Crevice, Mill Creek, and Eight-Mile Creek, are
ingston, directly tributary to it. and are being I
actively worked. That wonderfully rich quarts
country, silver and gold, known as the Clark'e
Fork District, is south of town, and Livingston
is the headquarters and outfitting point. Im
mense deposits of limestone, sandstone, clay and
fine brick clay, are but two miles distant, end the
manufacture of lime is already an important in
dustry, this being the firet point after leaving Due
luth on the east, 1,000 miles, where lime rock ie
found. There are some 200 buildings in cours
of construction. The Park Addition on which
the new $17,000 school house is expected to be
built is the most desirable residence property in
town> while the Palace Addition contains thß
cheapest business property offered for sale—
tendency of business and business improvements
being largely in that direction. There are two
banks, the First National and a private bank; two
newspapers, one daily and one weekly. A smelt
ing and reduction company is also in procees of
formation, to be located here. There are many
chances for business enterprises of various kinds.
Like all new countries, the opportunities for
profitable employment are very good and work
si.'a as well as men of capital will find plenty of
chances in and around tho town. Livingston i£
less than a year old, yet it is probably the second
largest city in Montana: It is not surprising
•when one considers that agriculture alone has
made Fargo; tbe Northern Pacific company's rail
road shops, Brainerd; summer yieitors, Saratoga;
lumber, Ean Claire; silver and gold mines, Den
ver; cattle Kansas City; iron and coal, Pittsburg;
that a combination of all of these factors as is
found hera should, within the next five years
make this point a city of at least 50,000 people.
The prediction may seem a wild one, but we have
yet to see or know anyone who, a few years ago,
was accused of being wild then in their predic
j tions, who predicted one-half of what has actual
! ly occurred in the Northern Pacific country. We
sold lota in Fargo a few years ago far f 100 each
that would sail to-day for $10 000; acres at James
town for $15 per acre (cost 48 cents) that to-day
sell for $1,500, and are built on. We have acres
to-day in Fargo which cost 48}4 cents that are
now ill town lots selling at the rate of $1,250 pa*
acre. So lots at Livingston which we now offer
at from $25 to $250 will, inside of 8 years, Bell at
from 5 ' ') to $10,000 apiece. They have done so
at all c: ft points on tfce road in the past, and
they irJ L • i the future—particularly at an excep
tionally + xoA point like this. We advance price
in July.
