A STUBBORN COLD OR BRONCHITIS yields more readily to Scott's Emulsion of cod-liver oil than to anything that you can take; and if persistently used a few days, will break up the cold. When you awake in the night choked up and cough ing hard, take a dose of the Emulsion, and you will get immediate relief, where no cough medicine will give you relief. It has a soothing and healing effect upon the throal and bronchial tubes. Most people understand Scott's Emulsion is a great body builder but it is equally good to allay inflammation and cure colds and violent coughing. Stud lor Kitt .Simple.

The dramatic point In the trial of Lawyer Albert T. Pattlck for the' inureler ot the Texas millionaire, William Marsh Rice, was reached this af ternoon. Charles F.

Patrick e-. claimed: "Oh my (lod. That Is the worn thing that could have happeni'il to me." He told me be'forc that lie intended to say that to dcelve I r. Curry. The doctor .'aid lie would need an tindei taker and Patrick said "Yes, and a death certificate Dr. Curi made out the cerlilieate ami the undi rtaki r wa.s sent for. Pattlck visited the loom where Mr. Rice's papers were kept and took away with him all the pa pers ho (ould find. Patrick talked to mo In Dr. entry's presence and gave no hint of anything wrong." Jones told ot the happinlngs thr day af er -Mr. Rice's death, lie said Patrick called him on the telephone and told him he had made a ndstal e In the Sven-ou check. "'If they call you on the telephone,'' Jones said "Pi.tiick told him to 'tell them the cheek is all right.' 'J'lioy did call and 1 id. I as he directed. Later Patrick told me over th" v ire, tha' il anv mote tn iltiifies were l.indi; to my that Mr. Kien vim dead." Mr. Osborne suggested an adjournment In tc but the recorder wi ntcd a more nibi lite description of the towel coie- and i Itioioform and (iiif-Uonal the witness lilmsell.

"How long did you leave the cone on tho face of Mr, Rice''" nskrd the recorder. '1 don't koo-w. it was a InMe. more than a, half, an hour. Patrick told me to leave it there twenty minutes."

Men and women of llils part of the country throw away without knowlim anything iihoiil It, the linest winter sport thole- Is. That Is snow shooing. Over on the other side of Ilie Hue they tie the big webs for fun ns well as for business, and they know whnt they are dolnur there, too. There's more good health, fun, fresh ft ir and bigger appetites to be had with a pair of snow shoes than with anything- else on lap. In CttiiMila snow shoe clubs ate quite common, ami lu Home of the northern and western State H their worth Is appreciated at Its full Millie, One's llrst effort on mow shoes Is apt lo be (llscoiiraglnpr. Those shoes flop nroiind behind nml dig down In front ami u new iiiiin on them W the most helpltss thing alive. The snow shoer should start out, lifting one foot carefully fiom the ground and permitting the tall of the shoo to drop. Carry I ho foot lorwurd and in a slightly circular motion till the shoe Is clem- nf the other one. Then tepeitt with Ihe other fool, lie sure to raise thu to of the shoo clear of the snow, otherwise it will calch and dig In and. you II be. upset. Don't try to step too far. The tail of the ono shoo might properly cxti nd back n short distance at the side of tlie other till tho longer step-e become- natural. The flip, Hop, llap of the tall of the shoe behind tho beginner will be disconcerting nt l.rsl, but that Is a part of the name. Don't think, cither, that tlie snow shoes will bear your weight on the ity top of the snow. They don't. They are bound lo sink mote or less, accoidlng to how heavy jmi are and according to the condi tion of tho snow. In ery light snow the shoes will sink two or three Indies, uu closely packed snow they will icmalti near the top and on a crust that will not bear the weight of a man without snow shoes they will carry a "Oi-pnundcr as it' he were on asphalt. The time that can be made bv a. moder ately expert snow shoer will .-iirprlse i veil the walker himself. There U an cMlte inelil, an Intetesi, about it tha' tn'ie away halt' the Lillgue after one; lias learned the llrst principles that Is as gooi as the second wind anytime. While leainlivi to stop high, eli'vatiiu.' the- toes, one should ilso use care not to Interfere, that Is not lo place one sh" upon tin- other. A little i ari'lessness In tne o erconlldelil be'ginner will ivrt;elnl lesult lu a forward plunge. A iit-in standing- on his head lu a snow drift, with a pair of 1 Ig webbed bows tl"d to his feet.

If ou di lull let the illiers laugh all they want b lor the chances ate .loti'll laugh yourself at one of them the next minute. Hut after the ttiik lias been learnt i Iheie Is no better sport Pi the world thai that found by a party ol men or of lie anil women, who set out by day or b moonlight for a ti.unp on the snow, day blanket eo. its and trousers and Indict -and skirts complete the proper outer yui' for mow shoeing. Th" material is wiiim and HlJiI and Ihe many inlois add lo the pictlil esiileness.
