Ill ON COYOTES MS BEEN SUCCESSFUL The government has Just Issued the following bulletin concerning the re suits of the coyote-killing campaign In the forest reserves. The bulletin says: The forest service has made vigor ous efforts to destroy wolves and other predatory animals on and near the national forests, and through Its force of forest rangers has carried on the most systematic and successful war on these pests ever undertaken Besides the regular force of rangers a number of expert hunters and trap r.pr have been employed In the worst Infested regions and gratifying results have been obtained. It must be borne In mind, however, that the areas thus protected are but widely separated spots in a vast ex tent of wolf country, and unless ranchmen and settlers are stimulated to similar efforts permanent results are not to be expected. . Following Is a record of wolves and coyotes killed In 1907, furnished by the forest service. In many cases the records are Incomplete or approxi mate, but they come from widely scattered localities and serve to give an idea of the success of the war against these animals. Numerous heirs, mountain lions, bobcats and other animals also were killed. In making up these reports the su pervisors of the various national for ests have added to the number of an imals killed by forest rangers and hunters emuloved by the forest serv ice those killed In the vicinity of the forests by ranchmen, cowboys and professional hunters, and in many cases It has been Impossible to sepa rate the records. Also In a few cases bounty records for the county have i been Included. Hence the forest ser vice should not be credited with the total number of animals killed. The capture of 1723 wolves Is re ported from 39 national forests, which comprise an area of 72,760 scjuare miles. The surrounding country Included may amount to as much more, making an area of about 145,520 square miles to which the leports relate, or about one-tenth of the total area Inhabited by wolves In the United States. The capture of 23,208 coyotes Is reported from 77 national forests, which comprise an area of 106,746 square miles. This Is doubled to in clude the surrounding country to which the reports also refer makes an area of approximately 213,492 square miles, or about one-ninth of that Inhabited by coyotes in the t'nited States. PoLsonlng. No poison has yet proved so effec tive as pure sulphate of stychnlne, provided the proper dose Is used. The most effective dose Is 4 grains for wolves and 2 grains for coyotes. The common 3-grain gelatin capsules sold by druggists wll hold, if well filled, 4 grains of strychnine and are better than the larger capsules. The regu lar 2-graln capsules should be used for coyotes. The capsules should he filled, securely capped, and every trace of the Intensely bitter drug wiped from- the outside. Each capsule should be Inserted In a piece of beef suet the size of a wal nut and the cavity securely closed, to keep out moisture. Lean meat should not be used, as the Juice soon dis solves the gelatin of the capsule. The necessary number of poison baits may be prepared and carried In a tin can or pail. They should never be han dled except with gloved hands or for cIds. The baits may be dropped from horseback along a scented drag line made by dragging an old bone or piece of hide well saturated with fetid scent, or they may be placed around or partly under any carcas on which the wolves or coyotes are feeding, or along trails which they are In the habit of following. Gellatin capsules quickly dissolved In the Juices of the stomach. Strych nine taken on an empty stomach sometimes kills In a very few minutes but on a full stomach Its action is much slower, and the animal may have time to travel a considerable distance. The World's Bos Climate Is not entirely free from disease, on th hleh elevations fevers prevail while on the lower levels malaria Is encountered to a greater or less ex tent, according to altitude. To over come climate affections, lassitude, malaria, Jaundice, biliousness, fever and ague, and general debility, the most effective remedy Is fciectric Bitters, the great alterative and blood nurifler: the antidote for every form of bodily weakness, nervousness and insomnia.

His n-ffsith in conservatively estimated at ,3,600,000, says the Denver Post. He owns more than 300,000 acres or tne best land In the Rio Grande valley, Every foot of It can be Irrigated. At the rate which other land In this section of the same character Is sell ing, $20 per acre for these 300,000 acres would not be an excessive fig ure. Figured on that basis, this In llan Is worth $6,000,000. He Is not given to overrating things, and th first estimate Is his own. Lon Hill Is a full blood Choctaw says a southern exchange. He Is Droud of his Indian blood, and a stranger Is not long In his presence before the fact Is made known by Mr. Hill that he Is an Indian. "This Indian has been able to take care of himself." he . will say. "I never have received anything from the government, and I am not expect ing anything." This Is true. He never shared In any of the allotments In Indian Terri tory. He has been making his way ever since he was a boy. The marvelous thing about the great fortune which Hill now pos sesses Is tha he has accumulated It all during the last six years. He lo cated at Brownsville, a little more than six years ago. Hill and others Induced the Rock Island people to build a railroad to the town. Then he began getting op tions on land along the proposed line. The land which he had bought for $1 per acre went to 15 per acre be fore the railroad had reached Browns ville. When the line was finished and the Influx of settlers and Investors began land values mounted higher and higher. Mr. Hill is Just now completing a system of Irrigating canals and ditch es to Irrigate 40,000 acres of his land. The main canal Is mpre than 25 miles long, and runs from the Illo Grande to a point a short distance cast of Harlington. More than 25 miles of laterals are being built. All of this land Is to be planted In sugar cane. Three large sugar mills are to bt erected to care for the cane crop when the land is placed In cultiva tion. In addition to his vast landed hold ings, Hill owns the'townslto of Har lington. This place Is situated at the Junction of the main line of the St. Louis, Brownsville & Mexico railroad and Its branch line which runs to San Fordyce. Hill Is married. He Is devoted to his wife and children. Concerning his early life, Hill says: "I punched cattle In Indian Terri tory when a young man. I saw the need of an education and had ac quired a fairly good start In that di rection when I entered the University of Texas. I was 27 years old when I began to study law. I went through the University of Texas and graduat ed in the law department of the Uni versity of Virginia. I now am 49 years old." Valued Same as Gold. B. G. Stewart, a merchant of Cedar View, Miss, says: "I tell my custom- ehs when they buy a box of Dr. King's Life Pills they get the worth of that much gold In weight, if afflicted with constipation, malaria or biliousness." 8qld under guarantee at Tallman & Co.'s drug store. 25 cents.
