Marksmanship Nearly Equal to that of Troop D. Extraordinary accuracy in marks manship cut short the heavy gun practice at the Preside, the govern ment reservation, the other day. Tho twelve inch guns were io ; be brought into play, and the target was a wooden structure, pyramidal in shape, about twelve feet long at each base line and about eight -feet, high. It was towed ocean-ward by a tug with a long towline, and while mov ing at seven miles an hour was to. be fired upon. When the target was about three miles from shore and undertow it ap peared to he about the size of a man’s hand. It was then that. <'en>oral Regan fired a twelve-inch gun. The shot struck about eight yards astern of the moving mark. Carefully Re gan aimed the second missile, and scarcely had the roar of the discharge ceased when the target disappeared. The shot had hit “the enemy” amid ships and shattered it into splinters. Dislocated Her Shoulder. Mrs. Johanna Soderholm, of Fergus Falls, Minn., fell and dislocated her shoulder. She had a surgeon got it j back in place as soon as possible, but | it was quite sore and pained her very i much. Her son mentioned t hat he j had seen Chamberlain's Pain Halm advertised for sprair«s and soreness, and sin- asked him to buy hern bottle !of it, which he did. It quickly re- I lievisl her and enabled her r«» sleep | which she had not done for several days. The son was so much pleased j with the relief it gave liis moth r that ' he has since recommended it to many j ot.hcrs. For sale by Btrehlkc Pros., ' druggist*. Among Our Exchanges. From tho Fort Collins Express. It is doubtful if Colorado’s future ever looked so bright as it does right now. There was never a time when the prosperity of the state was so great or rested on so solid a founda tion. The growth is a steady mid healthy one. It is hard to see how t here can he a collapse. Confidence |of eastern inventors is expressed in i the millions of capital that they are | investing in Colorado enterprises, and they perhaps are the bust, judges of j the real stuns. Col. John P. Irish, of California, than which there is no greater au thority upon matters pertaining to the semi-arid and arid West has al ! ways favored a leasing system. He argues that western stockmen- must control the land used by them «s | ranges, for tho simple reason that promisquous grazing kills out the grass. He has just returned from Washington and tolls tho stockmen that now is the time for action. Congress is ready and anxious to dis pose of tile whole vexed question for all time, but if tho western people do not get together and formulate some plan of their own, a measure will be framed by some easterner that will net be to their liking. There is a good deal of sense in these views. Front the Loveland Reporter. Young John I>. Rockefeller says re ligion ought to be run on business principals. How would it do to run some kinds of business a little more closely to religious principals for n change. F. S. Smith, atone time state game warden, came near being soaked by a belligerent. Shoshone up rear Lander, Wyo., last Friday. Unfortunately help was near—and again was a Smith saved from an Indian. From the Fort Collins Courier. Babe Dotro and Oscar McGinley came into town Saturday night. They wore filled with the old time spirituous enthusiasm and the glory of the reckless and strenuous life of tho wild and wooly cow punchers of the w*>Bt- They rode hard and talked *«***•:"’• fqniri'ob tb'Jr • entew ir'o Doc Mylin’s restaurant and rode around the stove several times. No body mado any objections. It was all right; they were “it.” They owned the town. Tho bill board of the opera house was roped and dragged on the jump up College ave nue. A neat cast of the rope took Geo. Webb’s wheel from the walk in front of the bank and it became en dowed with more eccentricities of motion than it had ever attempted before. At last the boys left town. Warrants are out for their arrest. From the Rawlins Republican. No department of any business can be profitable without attention, and advertising is no exception to the rule. Merchants who give their .ad vertising the most careful attention and study derive the best results therefrom. Advertising is simply telling prospective purchasers JAvhaL you have to sell and inviting them to inspect your wares before purchasing elsewhere. It makes no difference j what you say or how you say it so j that it brings you business and is i within business ethics. You can | make your advertisement effective! and result, producing it you hour in ; mind these points. From the Colorado Democrat. The Hon. Edward O. Wolcott, of j New York, cares about as little fori Colorado and the desires of Colorado, people ns do the ruling powers of J Great Brittian care for the most ties- j picable waif upon tho streets of Lon- ! don. That seat in tho United States senate is more to Wolcott than is the ; life or business health of the suite lie would subsidise, ami he is now here from his New York home driving his \ minions and bartering with those j marketable members of the opposi- ; tion ranks for liis scat. From I he Ch Icngo Joiirtiel. To talk through a human body—nr ; a row of human Ixxlies for the matter j of that—is one of the weirdest of tho ' electrician’s feats. If a telephone! wire be severed and the two ends bo j held by a person, one in each hand, ■ but far apart, it is quite possible for' two individuals to carry on a convor- i sat ion through tin* body of a medium j as readily anil as distinctly as if the} line had been properly connected. j From tie* Routt County Courier. J. L. Ellis returned yesterday from j a surveying trip to Brown’s park. I He ran a line for the irrigation canal l project of the Routt County Land A ■ Irrigation Co.—a corporation made j up of Leadville men.

The peculiar cough which indicates croup is usually well known to tlie mothers of croupy children. No time should bo lost in the treatment of it, and for this purpose no medicine has received m*»r universal approval than Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
