Darby, Mont., Feb. 9, 1900.
To the Youthful Editor of the Ravalli
My Deuh Boy:— "
Your essay that you published last
week was a masterpiece of grandilo
quence. The subject was a dog—a
dog chain—a J. D. Hunsaker—a poet
"whose name is Bobby Burns" and a
D. Hunsaker whom von forcibly in
sinuate is not as good as a dog. The
composition was perfect. It was touch
ing. The sagacity of the master to
his dog and all of it was wonderful,
h , '
and that fellow, the mysterious J. D.
Hunsaker, came in just right. He
kindly left you a wee small loop hole
to crawl out of the cramped position
you placed yourself in when you once
asserted that the other fellow, D. Hun
saker's name, was not yet on the tax
lists. I have said that yonr subject
for essay composition, rhetorical fire
works, etc., was the dog, the dog
chain, Robert Burns the Scottish poet,
J. D. H. and D. H. And it was all of
them, yes, more than all of them, for
did „. t hit r Editor Miles Rom _
ney of the Western News a hard one.
That was meant to be right from the
shoulder and to land full on tho jaw.
but you struck a trifle to one side. It
was a miss and a miss is as good as a
mile. I am alluding now to the article
signed by Mr. J. P. Simonseu of Vic
tor, Ravalli county, Mont., but it
smacks too much of Shermanesque
compos! ion anl surely those that
read it cannot help l in observe it.
How long di 1 it take you to get to
gether all that stuff—possibly a whole
week of days and half the nights time
thrown in? Why, our boy that is
herding the sheep could beat it in 24
hours time. And say, by the way,
had not you better quit the paper and
come up and herd our flock of sheep
for us and let the bov that is nsw
(hording try editing the paper
awhile. He has aspirations in that
direction and I judge or think that
you would do better as a sheep herder
than an editor of the McGinty organ.
Remember though, that I will not
make the exchange without the full
consent of Supt. McGinty in black
and white. Now this is my last. I
shall not waste any more ammunition
on you. You can rave and keep on
raving about the dog, the dog chain,
Bobby Burns, I. D. H., Miles Romney
and D. H., bul I shall not notice you
again as an editor, though perhaps
I may notice you as a sheep herder
provided you and your boss are both
agreed that you herd our sheep
wages $15 a month and no more.
Thatis probably more than you will
earn editing a paper.
I think the reading public is tired
reading all this rot about dogs, dog
chains, Scotch poets,one horse editors,
Supt. McGinty and the Medicine Tree
man. So I for oi e, shall "let up."
There is no better medicine for the
babies than Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. Its pleasant taste and
prompt and effectual cures make it a
favorite with mothers and small child
ren. It quickly cures their coughs
and colds, prventing pneumonia or
other serious consequences. ' It also
cures croup and has been used in tens
of thousands cf cases without a single
failure so far as we have been able to
learn. It not only cures croup, but
when given as soon as the croupy
cough appears,will prevent the attack.
In cases of whooping cough it Iique
« f . al ; dangerous consequences,
fies the tough mucus, making it easier
" .. *
to expectorate, and lessens the sever
r . , , , J
ity and frequency of the paroxysms of
\ f . .
coughing, thus depriving that diseaie

ry store. *

During the early part of October,
1896, I contracted a bad cold which set

until I feared that consumption had
appeared in an incipient state. I was
contautly coughing and trying to ex
pel something which 1 could not. X
became alarmed and after giving the
local doctor a trial bought a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and
the result was immediate iuiprQV

health state.— B. S.Edwars, Publisher
