Why then should this faithful ser vant of a great corporation be asked to resign? Simply for. tha reason, as given by the superlHtendsnt, that a yonnfiOr man may be put In hte place. Mr. Smith Is but (1 years of ago. Why, at M a United States senator is considered a young man. At M mon are placed at tho head of great bust neas enterprises. Hut It is not so with the men who carry tho meaeage to Garde," the men who work out In detail the orders of others, the heads of departments. the men who suffer the wear and tear of execution. Nerves are worn to a fratsle. Forma are prematurely bowed. The dynamo of vitality gives off lessening sparks. The worn out tissue is tardily replac ed.

A Harvest at Anadarko for Saloons. Gamblers and Tough Characters. Tii- i"uiiir qua. wilt payment of tin- tnilians nun mado nt Aanadarko last wi-rk. anil that town has been (warming with all daxaes and condi tions of people, all bent on separating the noble red man from as much of hie easily-gotten wealth as possible. Gamblers, courtesans, pickpockets, stteaktaieves, snide actors, tamnle venders and various other specimens of humanity who live by tholr wits, have made tho town tholr headquar ters during tho payment and while tho Indian's monoy lastotl they lived on tho fat of the land. "The week of Indian payment Is a red-letter occasion to the uncivilised Indian," says a correspondent, "for It means fire-water, feasting and numer ous othor forbidden pleasures. If there ta any money left after the Indian agent deducts the amount due poor Lo's creditors. It is quickly dissipated in gambling, debauchery or riotous liv ing. The gamblers and saloon-keepers are fully cognisant ot this fact, too, and never failed to make preparations for getting hold of aB much of the Indian's money as they can Induce him to part with, and the task of persuad ing him to "let loose" Is not dim cult The Indians are paid quarterly In cash and rations, and from four days to an entire week, are usually required to transact the business con nected with the payment, which Is no small Job, particularly when there are many creditors, and all the gororn ment red tope and regulations to be gone through With to secure the trad ers and other creditors their money. So. as the week for the Indians to be paid off approaches, the town begins to III! tip with an undesirable class of cltlsen the worst olement of mankind to be found In the new country, in faeL No matter how dttlt the times are. or what the conditions surrounding the payment, the Indians rarely hold onto their funds longer than a week at most, and with some of them the money lasts scarcely three days. They always get gloriously drunk, gorge themselves with moat and drink, and If they cannot find sufficient gambling opportunities, give tholr money away to anyone who will tako the trouble to try and got It. And there aro always plenty of ' that' class of parasltos around at such tlmos. Tho avorage Indian who deponds on tho govern ment for support Is usually wonderful ly deflclont In a knowledge of the value of money. "Como easy, go easy" Is his motto. Offers $50,000,000 to His Country. Austin, Tex., Fob. 2C A dispatch from Moxlco City, Mexico, snys that President Diaz has recolved a com munication from Podro Alvarado, the multi-millionaire mining man of Par ral, Moxlco, offering to contrlbuto $80, 000,000 for the payment of Mexico's foreign debt. Several weeks ago Alvarado wrote to Minister of Finance Joseph Ives Limantour offering to pay oft the pub lic debt of Mexico. The offer was de clined at tbe time, but It has again been renewed In another way, direct to President Dlas. Alvarado has acquired a vast for tune from his Palmillo mine during the !at rew years. He says that -he got his fortune out of the ground and that it is right he should give a por tion of It to the' government. He lives in princely style and has given large sums of money to charity.

Considering the harm doue, "neglect" before and after taking a cold Ih a tiliynical crime. You may prevent a cold, or, if too late, you can insure yourself against tho "after ef ects," for there is tho greatest danger, by using Dr. H art er Iron Tonic. Few die from Colds, or La Grippe, or Ca tarrh. They die of the after effect. These diseases all weaken, and (o a weakened body come flocking a host of diseases that fasten on weak lungs, heart, t stomach, kidueys, and other weak parts that we seldom think of. The easiest aud best tiling to do is to fortify the yalcm so that you will not catch cold, but if too late to do that, then you must see that no lusting in Jury is doue.
