Contractor anOnffler What is Scrofula It is that impurity In the blood, which, accumu lating la the glands of the neck, produces un sightly lumps or swellings, which causes painful running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which derelopes ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often cansing blindness or deafness ; which is the origin of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other manifestations usually ascribed to " humors.* It is a more formidable enemy than consumption or cancer alone, for scrofula combines the worst possible features of both. Being the most ancient, it is the most general of all diseases or affections, for very few persons are entirely free from It. How can it be cured ? By taking Hood's Sarsa parilla, which, by the cores It has accomplished, often when other medicines have failed, has proven itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine for this disease. For all affections of the blood Hood's Sarsaparilla is unequalled, and some of the cures It has effected are really wonderful. If yon suffer from scrofula in any of its varions forms, be sure to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a triaL Hood's Sarsaparilla Sold by all druggists. $1 ; six for fS. Prepared only by C.

BT JAMES BOTD NESBIT. ,rEmigrant Peak stands, a central figure, in the j Snowy range of mountains, bordering the valiev of the Upper Yellowstone. Itisabont pper 12,0 X) feet in height, and owing to its altitude lias been given a prominence enjoyed by no other peak of the range. There are, prop erly speaking, three distinct peaks, trending north and south, hut all spring from one base and are known under the name of Emi i grant.] ' In davs primeval, when the earth was young, And nature's forces with strange might pre vailed; When vaporous elements around lier clung I And hid the sun's bright beams in darkling shade Wreathing in shadows mystic Dills and vales That, likeCld ocean's waves were flung Dashing on unknown shores. Thus in that un 1 wiflOQ forty-eight years ago, ■ ^ , known past, Earth's crust unformed, she rolled a shapeless mass. Then long night intervened, the night of change, When time in cycles rolled—a moment's span, The vista of those fleeting years, whose range Unmeasured by tlie history of man, Shines on us through a theoretic lens. Then was earth formed—nought as 'tis today. Erosion's power long since has changed tier face, Vet still in mountain's range her earlier form we trace. Ihea thou wast formed, old Emigrant, who rear'st thy mighty head, Bvelling in volumes grand above thy fellow peaks, liinng above the rolling clouds that spread I« in'"ty wreathe about thy breast: and seeks To uide from mortal gaze thv varied charms, As Turkish ladies hide their"dimpled cheeks Beiind the impenetrable yaslikmat. Yet, TàJ' seen but once, can never be forgot. Aj£s have rolled about thy hoary head, Tint in the carboniferous time was crowned Wth verdure from the tropics' latitude; Wien trees and plants luxuriantly bloomed Anl vines entwined around the limbs Of baobabs. And giants of the forest grew apace, Aid deadly Upas there, with perfumed breath, Lured prehistoric man to shade, and luivd him to nis death. Then Yateveo did its arms unfold, Ami. patiently await its lawful prey, As Siren Lorlei in the days of old Enticed each mariner who wandered by With sweet songs of file power of her god, And lured them on destruction's fatal road, then, like poor, blinded man, the temptress' voice heed gave, And, dashing on tlie hidden rocks, found there a nameless grave. Another change swept o'er tiie face of earth, Anti far from Boreas' icy regions came A frigid blast that, witli resistless force, Changed the topography of mount and plain— Annihilating every living thing, •And leaving desolation in its train. T»en Zero's face d.d from the nortli appear, And Winter's reign had come—the Glacial Age was here. -As thunderbolts from sky to earth are driven, With lightning s force, "and with tempestuous power: As Hercules upheld the sky of heaven Upon liis shoulders, e'en tho' but an hour: Su glaciers' force prevailed, and on thy sides, O Emigrant! thy lofty crags have riven. And thy tall peaks, serrated, silent stand, Examples of its awful power as't swept o'er sea and land. "Everything a beginning hath, and end." bosaith the law ol nature, and 'tis true, Tho" theorists who dispute tlie fact pretend Peipetuality in life for me and you. Ye! let them pause a little wuile and view Tilt stern enforcement of Uergr. at command; The immutability of her laws, that saith, That which today i3 born to life is born tuday for death. The little flower, unfolding when the sun, in dazzling splendor rises'in the east, Closes its petals when the day is done And light's bright orb is fading in tlie west— Exemplifies the truth of which 1 speak. That nothing, under Heaven, corroding time can brook. There is no variance to this stern decree, E'en rock ribbed hills must go, like you and me. True to great nature's law the storm king loosed his hold And ice-bound rivers were once more set tree, And fields witn flowers bloomed in blue and gold, And mountain ranges, in their majesty, Bared their tail peaks t • catch the passing breeze The Reindeer Epoch passed,' the Age of .Man has come. The years of ali tlie centuries since have rolled W ith scarce effect upon thy massive form, Save where tlie broken, shattered crag has told The lightning's crash, tho fury of the storm, t hat with terrific power, ever aud anon, Thy sides with seams amt gullies deep has worn. So the aged patriarch, after years of strife, Shows on hie seared and furrowed brow tue con llicts of his lire. The vale of Paradise along thy base Stretches in quiet solitude alone, Through which in winning silvery thread we trace The madly rushing, restless Yellowstone, Whose volume, fed Irom suow fields of thy dome, Increases as it rolls toward ocean's home, Till the small rivulets that form Us source Swell iu the tidal fioud of Mississippi's course. The treasures locked beneath thy frowning crest Hath lured tlie genus homo to thy feet, Whom fickle goddess (.'nance hath oit caressed, While tear and hope—the bitte, aud the sweet Uf life's short span—has reigned within their breast ; Tho' few haie f ,uud the golden metal blest Through man's o'erweauing love of worldly tilings: (Blind to what sorrow it hath wrought, what mis ery irom it springs.) The glinting sun that bathes thy towering form, Dispelling from thy face the cavern's gloom ; Breathing the inceuae of a summer's morn, Glistening the snow fields of thy lofty dome ; Clothes thee in wondrous glory ail thine own; Crowns thee in splendor paralleled by nous, Cleaving afar the ethereal vault of Heaven, Yet near to nature's heart, a child by nature given. In after days when ages long have passed, Existing nations blotted fromeartn's page, Thou'lt tell Utopia's people—come at last— Thy memories of a prehistoric age, When mankind lived on the delusive stage Himself erected. Shouldst thou then engage The thoughts of those w Do afterward shall come And seek the mysteries of the past, locked closely in thy tomb— Tell them of how we sought tl)e precious dust And bartered all for riches and for power; Revered the false and finite, scorned the just, And, like the unbelieving Giaour, Who tramples brute-like on the sacred flower, Tho' changes heart with every changing hour, To Mammon's sway we humbly bent our knees, Then passed away unsung, like to a passing breeze.

In the house Monday, after the read ing of the journal, Carlisle arose and said that since the 29th of January, his side of the house had been protesting every morning against the approval of the journal on the ground that it con tained an entry made by the direction of the speaker, showing the names of certain members present and not voting, Last Friday the house adopted a code of rules providing for such practice. Against this the democrats protested and would protest as unconstitutional, but it was a question which could not be decided in this house, and whenever the proper cases arose it would go to some other forum. It was the purpose of his side to see that this occasion should be made in such shape as would permit it to be finally and decidedly passed upon. Therefore he now saw no reason why the journal, the form of which the house had a right to pre scribe, should not bo approved. This was done. Publication Notes. Frank Vincent, the well known trav eler, author of the recently published book, "Around and About South Amer ica,", and of a forthcoming work on Cen tral America, furnishes an elaborate leading article on "The Republics of Central America," in the March number of Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly. Guatemala, Honduras, Salvador, Nica ragua and Costa Rica are graphically described, with numerous and beautiful illustrations, making a contribution of the highest intrinsic interest, as well as of peculiar timeliness in connection with the work of the Pan-American congress. Other illustrated articles offer attrac tions in a variety of directions—notably Frederick Daniel's charming description of Richmond, Virginia's historic capital; "The Music of All Nations," as exempli fied at the Paris exposition; "Where Garfield was Canalboy," an account of a leisurely voyage on the Ohio canal; "Os trich Feathers," from the bird to the bonnet; "The Pictographic Autobiog raphy of a Sioux Chief," etc. Alfred H. Guernsey begins a series of historical papers on Frederick the Great. The se rial and short stories are always a spec ial feature of the Popular Monthly, while its pictures are more numerous and excellent than ever. Do you want your daughter to learn how to cook?

Here is an other chance to refer to the March num ber of that wonderful magazine; and when you once have it in your hands (if you are not already acquainted with it), you will be surprised to learn that you have made a great error in supposing that it was composed of fashion sheets. There is not a better family magazine published. Its literary merit is of the highest order, and the illustrations are superb. Villaril"» Great Scheme. New York Special: It was not possi ble to obtain from the officers of the Northern Pacific in this city any infor mation of the Baltimore & Ohio consoli dation scheme, which has been revived by the recent dispatches from the west. From sources practically official, how ever, there came statements and admiss ions which go a good way toward en dorsing the western announcement. One of the officers of the Northern Pacific said: *'So far nothing like the big deal suggested has been accom plished," but pressed to tell whether or not the project was in view, he pract ically admitted it was being worked upon. He pointed out what he called "the manifold advantages" of the con trol of the Baltimore & Ohio by the Northern Pacific. It was no new dis covery. He said Villard had been awake to the opportunity in it, and he added suggestively that the present holders of the Baltimore & Ohio securities were not disinclined to sell out at a fair price. Every representative railroad man con suited regarding the report on the big deal declared it was in no wise improb able. It was exactly in line with the policy which it is known has been map ped out by Villard. It would at once make him the leading railroad magnet of the country. It would, moreover, be just 6uch an accomplishment as would vastly redound to his credit as a great financier, and would add immeasurably to his prestige abroad. Further than this, it would be of stupendous advan tage to the Northern Pacific property, and by appreciating the value of all Northern Pacific securities would strengthen Villard's grasp upon the con fidence of the security owners. The most important fact bearing upon the pro bability of the report is practically the untold amount of money at Villard's command. It is suspected that when tho one hundred and fifty million dol lars bond was lately authorized by the Northern Pacific directors Villard had his eye upon this big Baltimore & Ohio deal. The Lloyd-Sullivan Election Contest. In its report of Tuesday's proceedings in the shrievalty contest in Silver Bow pn'int.v f 1 1 T ntur o.vc long suffering Certificate F. Booth was placed on the stand for about the steenth time and wore his usual meek and re signed expression. It having been de veloped at his examination last week that the returns from precinct 34 indi cated an impossible state of affairs, Mr. Booth presented a diagram to the court to explain the apparent irregularity in tlie vote by presuming that the first 1G9 votes iu precinct 34 had been straight democratic, and that two of tho three republican voters had voted for two democrats each. On cross-examination he admitted that the only way by which the return could possibly be correct was the supposition that two of the republi cans voted for two democratic candi dates for the legislature. As one wit ness had already been sworn in court that he marked three ballots straight republican, it is evident that the returns indicate an impossible condition of af fairs. Mr. Booth also testified that he issued 800 official ballots to the judges of the 34th precinct. Of these 599 printed ballots were returned to him and one blank ballot. The registry at precinct 34 was 184 and the law required two hundred ballots to be issued for each 50 registered voters or fraction of fifty. The ballot box of precinct 34 was brought in to him on October 14th by W. A Pennycook. It was not sealed. Witness himself sealed it, and a couple of days later Pennycook came in, put on the double kibosh seal, and left the box in witness' charge. Deputy County Clerk Will L. Clark was then recalled and asked by Mr. Campbell as to how many declarations of intention to become American citizens he issued to persons registered to vote at precinct 34 while away from his office. He said after comparing the lists he found twenty-two in addition to the twenty-six alleged in the replication, making forty-eight in all to whom decla rations had been issued away from the clerk's office. In regard to his appoint ment, witness said that his oath of office had not been spread upon the records of the courts previous to his performing any official acts. The declarations of in tention of the forty-eight men at the tunnel were taken at the office of Green & Keefe, at the Home3take tunnel, about ten miles from Butte. It is said that Canadians are stealing billions of feet of American lumber from the great pine timber t>elt in northern Minnesota. The lumbermen of the region centering about the little British post of Hungry Hall a number of years ago discovered a way of piling up immense fortunes. The United States government exacts 10 to 20 per cent of tariff tax from the consumer on each 1000 feet bf lumber cut or manu factured in Canada, while it allows the Canadian lumbermen of that section of the dominion bordering on the Lake of the Woods to cut and carry off from the unsurveyed timber lands of north ern Minnesota millions upon millions of feet of pine timber each year pract ically unmolested. From 150,000,000 to 200,000,000 feet of timber and logs, every foot of which has been cut in Minne sota, go past this post and down the Lake of the Woods every year. Governor Hill of New York has signed tlie Worlds Fair bill recently passed by the legislature of that state.
