WEDNESDAY EVE., MARCH 14,1900
A FRIGHTFUL EXPERIENCE.
One of the most touching exhibi
tions of nerve and courage, and the
capacity for endurance, physically
and morally, that has been lately
known Is the case of George Milan,
a cowboy on the "Diamond A" ranch
In Grant county, New Mexico. Milan
was some distance from the ranch
when he accidentally shot himself In
the foot, Inflicting an ugly and pain
ful wound, rendering his walking
back to his headquarters absolutely
Impossible; so squatting down and
thrust ir.g his lame foot In front of
him, 'he used his hands to support
himself and as propellers. He pro
ceeded up the road In exceeding slow-
ness and pain, when night overtook
him. The sharp rocks lacerated his
hands, but desperation lent him ex
traordinary endurance. It seemed
to him that an eternal darkness had
visited the earth, and that he was
the sole object of its envelopment
Inch by Inch he fought the discour
agement of apparently illimitable dis
tance, pushing up the weeds and trash
with his wounded foot, like the bat-
tered prow of a disabled ehlp slowly
plowing the Impeding waves.
Added terrors were In store for him
however. As night moved on, he
heard the hungered htwl of "lobos'
or big wolves, and he bethought him
self, too late, of his pistol. What
was his horror to learn that he had
dropped it at the place of hia acci
dent. No lonely traveler on the
steppes of Siberia ever combatted
the wolfish hordes of that desolate
region under such difficulties. It
seemed that God had deserted the
weak. The cold of a November night
under the cold glare of the unpitying
BtarB, added to Milan's suffering. The
hot breath, of the wolves, the hideoua
, noise of their snarling and snapping,
told him of his most Immediate dan
ger, and predicted a death to which
the -beautiful illusions which accom
pany freezing, or even death from
exhaustion and hunger, were pain
less Joys. "In the fever of his desper
ation, the sable wing of night seemed
fringed with celestial light, and In
the madness of despair, he sat amid
the circle of his destruction and
fought with rocks its contracting cir
cumference. Two cowboys riding along the road,
observed the strange trail Milan's
lame toot had made. ' It seemed a
puzzle these experienced trailers and
plainsmen could not untangle. Fol
lowing it, however, they came upon
the unfortunate Milan, and rescued
him from a frightful death. Such Is
the suffering the hardy frontiersman
Is sometimes called upon by an un
compromising fate to endure.
MR. BRYAN COMING.
Mayor Marron has received word
that the Hon. William Jennings
Bryan will arrive in Albuquerque on
the night of April 13th, and will
spend the day following here. In the
evening he will speak on the Issues of
the day. From Albuquerque - Mr.
Bryan will go to El Paso and thence
to San Antonio. Albuquerque "Journal-Democrat."
This will put Mr. Bryan through
Las Vegas either at 12:45 o'clock or
3:25 p. m. on that day. Friends ana
admirers of the man who has high
.hopes for the presidency should ar
range to give him a cordial reception
as he passes through, or, better still,
to have him change his dates so as
to stop over here one night and give
us a speech on the Issues of the day
from his viewpoint, -which is that of
the masses of the people. We prom
ise him a packed opera house.
The present high price of lumber
and its future scarcity have caused
architects to study how to build with
the use of the least possible lumber.
Not only has the price of lumber ad
vanced greatly, but during the past
few months, hardware and builders'
materials generally have gone up In
cost at an alarming rate and at pres
ent there Is no telling hut what they
may go still higher. The price of
nails has gone up twenty-five cents a
keg within the past few weeks, and
window glass has made a' big advance
also. Builder and contractors are
somewhat apprehensive lest the
prices will "go -still higher. Some of
them fear that this advance will re
sult, in a cheek to building operations
next season, as builders' materials are
now higher thrn for a long time, and
there is nothing in the fi:Uire to indi
cate that they trill fall again.

nished to our natrons, remains the
same as ever, the members of the pa

us nearly 50 per cent AC this rate
our profits are cut to a close margin. 1
In this connection, we are glad to
note that the Pennsylvania editorial
association has, as a body, denounced
the paper trust, declaring that if
trusts are organized honestly to re
duce expenses and consequently the
cost of products they should depend
on their own business sagacity and
not upon protection given them by the
government. "Holding this belief as
to all trusts, and believing that the
recent increase in the cost of white
paper and type metal is due in part,
at least, to the organization of trusts,
and that it is made possible by tariff
duties, we appeal," says the resolu
tion, "to congress to repeal such tariff
duties as eeem to protect the trusts
in their extortionate charges."
The ladles of the Preshyterian
church at Deming gave a dinner, Sat
urday, for Its benefit, charging the
destructive price of twenty-five cents.
As the same dinner, in its elabora
tion, must have- cost their husbands
seventy-five cents, God bless the wo
men! It has always been a puzzle
how the church workers could get up
their dinners and fill people at twenty-five
cents each, when the raw ma
terials for the same must cost their
dear, unsuspecting husbands twice
the amount, but, then, they are en
abled to -work like Trojans, and can
stand a loss (on the husbands' side)
that makes them believe , they are
making great money.

K Is a mistake to take any and every kind of medicine when you are
sick. There is danger in it Most of the so-called cures for " female
weakness" do nothing: more than deaden the pain temporarily, and when
the effect wears away the patient is weaker and sicker than before. It is
never wise to take chances. You have only one life, and that is dear and
precious. If you have any pain, ache, disorder or weakness in the femi
nine organs, nothing will help you like Wine of Cardul It helps do
away with morning sickness during the early stages of pregnancy, and
modifies the pains of childbirth; recovery is rapid and future health is
assmed. The Wine is rurelv veg
etable, being made Of herbs whose
medicinal properties act directly
upon the orpans of womanhood.
