Capital Stock *60,000*00 Stockholders Liabilities *60,0000)0 THE SAN LOUIS VALLEY IS “THE HOG MAN’S KLONDIKE" Alamosa, Jan. 6—The fertility of the ■oil in the San Louis valley is attract ing a great deal of attention from agricultural experts. The crops of wheat, oats, barley and potatoes grown here the past season have been phenominal. The returns per acre have been as high as 62 bushels of wheat, 129 of oates, 76 of barley, and more than 400 of potatoes, while the average yield per acre is* 33 bushels of wheat, 45 of barley and oats, and 175 to 200 of potatoes. The quality of the crops is excellent. But the hog industry is coming to be fore in this flourishing valley. It is proving more profitable even than the feeding of lambs, the pork value of an acre of peas being about 75 per cent greater than the lamb value. The San Louis Valley hog is a heal thy one. The - Los Angeles market alone in a single season—last season —took 110 car loads of live hogs from the San Louis valley, preferring them to all others. A quarter section of good field pea land —this has been proven by actual results—will raise, fatten and turn COURT IS KEPT BUSY IN THE CRIPPLE CREEK DISTRICT Cripple Creek, Jan. s.—Direct in formations were filed in the district court today against W. 8.

LEWIS «• TAKEEB. off 300 fat hogs a year and carry over the brood sows, leaving the own er a gross return of $4,000 a year, with less than SI,OOO expense. A man who understands raising and fatten ing hogs can make a fortune in this valley, rightfully termed "The Hog Man’s Klondike.” Pea-fed pork demands a premium over all other pork in every land. An other important factor in the compar ison of pea-fed hogs is the fact that corn makes lard, while the peas make red meat, which is the essential "streak of lean” in the choicest bacon. Since bacon retails at 25 cents per pound and lard at ten cents, it follows that the San Louis valley hog brings a much higher price than the porker fed on corn. There is an experimentel hog farm in the valley under the supervision of the state Agriculaural college. They are experimenting with several breeds of hogs, principally Poland China, Duroc Jersey, Berkshire, Tam worth, and what are known as the Mexican or native hog, to ascertain which will make the ideal bacon hog. properties or 1908 Is exorbitantly high and out of all regard to their producing values.

MEN ARE HELPLESS AS CHILDREN When Taken Suddenly lll —Here Is a Common-Sense Safeguard. Big, strong man is as a helpless in fant when he is suddenly ill. The studiest chap in town usually loses his self control, and Is utterly unable to regard his condition with the common sense that characterizes his every-day actions. For example: He comes home tired, eats a heavy dinner and sits down to read and smoke away a quiet evening. Suddenly he notices a weight on his stomach: then sharp pains around his heart, and a feeling of suffocation. Thoughts of “heart disease” rush over him, and in his agony he fears the worst. His trouble was acute Indigestion, brought on by overloading his tired stomach. A couple of Rexall Dyspepsia tab lets would have given him instant re lief —would have saved him hours of suffering. Carry a package of Rexall Dyspep sia tablets in your vest pocket or keep them in your room. Take one after each heavy meal, and indigestion can never bother yox Rexall Dyspepsia tablets cure stom ach troubles by supplying the one ele ment, the absence of which in the gas tric juices, causes indigestio and dys pepsia. They enable the stomach to di gest all kinds of food and to quickly convert it into rich red blc .d. We know what Rexall Dyspepsia tablets are and what they will do.

In five or ten days the result will surprise you. A few cents will cover the cost And here Is why help comes so quickly. Dr. Shoop doesn't drug the stomach, nor stimulate the heart or kidneys. Dr. Shoop’s Restorative goes directly to the weak and ailing nerves. Each organ has its own controlling nerve. When these nerves fall, the depending organs must of necessity falter. This plain, yet vital truth, clearly tells why Dr. Shoop’s Restorative la so uni versally successful. Its success is leading druggists everywhere to give It universal preference. A test will surely tell. Sold by Ram bo ft Slinon.
