STRYCHNINE POISON
ING IN DOGS
When the house dog comes home,
acting very strangely and frothy sa
liva driveling from the mouth, there
are a number of things to be consid
ered. Most people think first of
rabies and secondly of poisoning.
Since both are very common the gen
eral public should be enlightened in
regard to them.
Rabies cannot be easily diagnosed,
but strychnine poisoning should be
readily recognized by anyone.
The first symptom© of strychnine
poisoning appear in from fifteen to
sixty minutes after the drug has been
administered, if it is carefully hid
den in a large piece of meat it may
be an hour or more before any symp
toms appear.
At first the animal acts extremely
nervous, it cannot stand still and
constantly' lifts its feet as if the
floor were hot. Rapidly the muscles
become stiff and the dog assumes a
position resembling a saw-buck, next
spasms appear and last for a few sec
onds, then the muscles will partially
relax and the animal will be able to
breathe more freely.
Spasms will recur more and more
frequently until death results. f
What can the owner do for the
patient until the doctor arrives? In
Jie first place, do not waste valuable
time trying home remedies before
calling professional aid. Minutes are
precious in cases of strychnine pois
oning.
Lard, cream and all euch agents
are absolutely of no value and the
animal is only annoyed by attempts
to administer them. The only house
hold remedy that can be of value i*
mustard, and it la ordinarily too
alow In action to accomplish any
good. A teaspoonful in a cup of
water may be given by means of a
table spoon. Other remedies are
useless and are consequently worse
than nothing. The doctor can produce
vomiting In leas than fifteen minutes
or wash out the entire intestine i
tract.
There la no danger of the animal
biting and absolute quiet Is good
treatment.

pose of making a selection of a site

diture of many thousand dollars for
Its maintenance.

DRIFTING IN OUR SCHOOLS
Drafting, aa carried on,haa been
criticised mainly from two riew
polnts, that of expanse and that of!
time being spent more profitably.
Th 3 simple rule draft, ms It has
been' worked out sstlsfactorily for
use in acbooir, has isrgely dona away
with the first. Now the only expense
for pattern making is that necessary
to obtain a snpply of yard sticks,
tape measures and drafting paper.
".'here la still s question as to tho .
advisability of drafting patterns in
onr schools because of the time U 1
requires when there are such com
paratively satisfactory commercial
' patterns on the market at a reason
able cost.
The drafting of a pattern givos
' one a better idea of a pattern and

MOUNTAIN STATES
TELEPHONE TO EXPAND
Two XU lion Dollar* to be Expended
—President Mokes Unique
Report. - '
Denver, Colo.. Oct. 19, lSll.— E. B.
Field, President of The Mountain
States Telephone and Telegraph com
pany, this afternoon made public the
special report of the stockholders
promised them at the time of the
merger of The Colorado Telephone
company, the Rocky Mountain Bell
Telephone company . and The Tri-
State Telephone and Telegraph com
pany, Into The Mountain States Tel
ephone and Telegraph company, dur
ing July.
In< financial circles the report la
commented upon as being the most
openly frank statement of the finan
cial condition of his company, his
present policy and future plans, ever
given to the public by a corporation
head. However, Uis said by those in
terested in financial affairs that Pres
ident Field has pursued this method
for years, a method in many respects
unique among those employed by the
larger public utilises.
President Field recites a brief his
tory of each of the merged com
panies, and out of this he deduces
what seems to be logical reasons for
combining the several companies both
from the standpoint of economic op
eration and administration, and from
the standpoint of more efficient and
universal service to the people of this
entire Mountain Region.
The report Includes a balance
sheet showing the result of the first
month’s business, August, to which
Mr. Field points with considerable
pride. It shows that notwithstanding
the expenses of maintaining a dupli
cate executive force, and an abnormal
expense for clerical needs in combin
ing the accounting systems of the *
several companies, the first month’s i
earnings not only met the actual div
idend requirement, but they yielded t}
safe margin over that figure.
Having thus Justified the merger
from the standpoint of the sharehold
ers, President Field refers to a trip
of Inspection which he recently made
through the states served by bis com
pany. He says that throughout Utah,
Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, there
are communities clamoring for tele
' phone service; that be was lmprese
!ed with the necessity of meeting
these needs, and that he was assured ,
of the co-operation of sound, conserv
ative, financial men along those lines.
He therefore concludes:
“Our Company has its duty to the
public co-ordinate with Its obligations
to the investor, and it is to carry out
this duty that I have recommended
the issue and sale of $2,000,000 of our
treasury stock for the purpose of
meeting these demands for addition
al service and my recommendations
have been endorsed by your direc
tors.*' . * }
ORCHARDISTS NOT HURT
BY COLD WEATHER
Although the cold weather that ha*
prevailed ever the state daring the
last few da ye has bean considered
dangerous to fruit It la not believed
that the apple* anywhere In the Ar
kansas valley have been damaged uy
It. Elijah McDonald came to Pueblo
on Friday from Parkdale and hired
extra help to enable him to pick his
upplea, nnd, it Is asserted, that by
Saturday night ninety per cent of the
Fremont county crop will be gather
ed.
The work of picking was somewhat
delayed this season and ranchers
were worried for fear the cold
weather would Injure the fruit, hot
no farther trouble Is apprehended on
that score. Mr. McDonald claim* that
the apple* of the Canon City district
this yaar are larger and of finer qual
ity than heretofore and a ready tala
for them at a good price it predicted.
