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

IS IN TEXAS
The richest Indian In the world Is
Lon Hill of Harlington, Texas. 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."
