MEEKER, .... COLORADO. A fortune off 9.000.000 Is trying to gala recognition from ex-Speaker Yhomaa B. Reed. The Kurds are demonstrating that the milk of human klndneaa haa soured •gala la Armenia. Andrew Lang will make a great mis take if he succeeds in drawing Kip ling's fire in bis direction. Uncle Tom may consider himself tacky that John L. Sullivan did not toss him over the footlights. If a man could sometimes see him self as others see him he would some times run away and get drunk. An eminent Frenchwoman adTlsee the female literary aspirant to first bring up a family. It’s a sure sure. Venesuela has formed a very er roneous idea of the Monroe doctrine If she thinks it is a bankruptcy act The Hon. Jerry Simpson is playing with his first grandson and letting the turned old country take care if itself. Chinese customs are not only odd, hut slow. The funerals of the victims of last year’s massacre are Just being held. New Jeriey mosquitoes are taking advantage of the January thaw to or ganise a swell reception to Prince Henry. Even a plutocrat has to save his money for a few days in order to buy a seat on the New York stock ex shange. The system that Mr. Schwab played at Monte Carlo suggests an easy plan by which Mr. Carnegie could get rid sf his wealth. Paderewfki Is coming again, but he la bringing his wife with him. So let the hero worshipers continue in pur suit of Kubelik. Each faction In the sugar fight ac cuses the other of having selfish mo tives. We are strongly Inclined to be lieve them both. .In his effort to destroy the sym metry of the hank at Monte Carlo, Mr. Schwab seems to have missed the proper combination. A Methodist preacher has been found who declares that Manila is a moral city. But, then, he formerly lived in San Francisco. Russell Sage does not remember the woman who says he owes her 975,000. If the account were the other way his memory would probably be better. Diamond cutters at The Hague are on strike. So the man who bought his winter supply of diamonds last week may consider himself la luck. It Is again feared that there may he a revolution In Spatu. The Spanish revolutionists, however, seldom be come so rash as to pass the threaten ing point. We now know what causes gray hair, fta name i a "pigmetophagus” and the grayneea Is due to friction caused by the microbe dragging its name rapidly ever the scalp. The coronet to be worn by the Englthh nobility at the coronation looks like a flfty-cent wedding cake. Any man who will wear a thing like that deserves to be a peer. If you want to be at the top notch •f American society you have got to live in Newport, rf you are satisfied with obscurity, gout and genius, old port will do your business. A Chicago man claims In court that the dentist stole his wife’s affections while filling her teeth. A person may love her dentist but how can she do eo when he ia filling her teeth? Stephen the author, waa probably right In refusing to allow Mrs. James Brown Potter to play tbs great love scene In Calypso “with all the emotion and passion of which I am capable.” The London theater is uot any too well provided with fire escapes. No, this Is not the utterance of a Boston young lady, but Is taken from a New York Herald editorial: “Practi cally. however, by knowing something ef the why and wherefore of systemic disturbances, we may be able to guard more effectually against the countless deleterious Influences of antagonistic conditions and the baneful determina tions of misfitting environments.” There are fifty varieties of good cranberry ia the country. The fifty first variety is bad. It is any of the fifty variation served witn its tough little Jacket oa. The cook who does not ’’Jell” cranberry so as to make It dear as crystal, smooth as honey, red as ruby and Just tart enough ought to he anathema. Attention la called to the fact that the name of Carnegie is aocented on the second syllable. His gifts, how ever. may be said to place the accent on the last syllable—la Booteh. COLORADO BRIEFS.

Harris, a Prominent Member of a Chicago Woman’s Political Club, tells how Ovarian Troubles may be Cured with out a Surgical Operation. She says: “ Doctors have a perfect craze for operations. The minute there is any trouble, nothing but an operation will do them; cm hundred dollars and costs, and included in the costs are pain, and agony, and often death. “ I suffered for eight years with ovarian troubles ; spent hundreds of dollars for relief, until two doctors agreed that an operation was my only Chance of life. My sister had been using Lydia E. Pink ham’s Vegetable Compound for her troubles, and been cored, and she strongly urged me to let the doctors go and try the Com pound. I did so as a last resort; used it faithfully with the Sana tive Wash for five months, and was rejoiced to find that my troubles were over and my health restored. If women would only try Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound first, fewer surgical operations would occur."—Mas. L. A. Harris, 278 East 31st St., Chicago, 111. •0000 FORFEIT IF THE ABOVE LETTER IS NOT GENUINE. When women are troubled with irregular, suppressed or painful menstruation, weakness, leucorrhces, displacement or ulceration of the womb, that bearing-down feeling, inflammation of the ovaries, back ache, bloating (or flatulence), general debility, indigestion, and nervous prostration, or are beset with such symptoms as dizziness, faintness, lassitude, excitability, irritability, nervousness, sleeplessness, melancholy, - all-gone * and “ want-to-be-left-alone ” feelings, blues, and hopelessness, they should remember there Is one tried ana true remedy. Lydia E. Plmkham’s Vegetable Cose pound at onoe removes such troubles.
