Cured by one Bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. “When I had an attack of the grip last winter (the second one) I actu ally cured myself with one bottle of Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy,” says Frank W. Perry, editor of the Enter prise, Shortsville, N. Y. “This is the honest truth. lat times kept from coughing myself to pieces by taking a teaspoonful of this remedy, and when the coughing spell would come on at night I would take a dose and it seemed that in the briefest interval the cough would pass and I would go to sleep perfectly free from cough and its accompanying pains. To say that the remedy acted as a most agreeable surprise is putting it very mildly. I had no idea that it would or could knock the grip, simply because I had never tried it for such a purpose, but it did,and it seemed with the second attack of coughing the remedy caused it to not only be of less duration, but the pains were far less severe, and I had not used the contents of one bot tle before Mr. Grip had bid me adieu."

The outlook thisspringis that there will be less cattle, and probably more grass locally in the West than for some time. With this in mind, and also considering that it probably will be a fact that good Southern cattle will bo at a less price than for several years; we wisli to call your attention to our facilities and ability to supply you, or any one, desiring young cattle during the months of May and June. We have had a very largo trade in this class of business, and are pre pared to quote young steers and heif ers of good quality delivered at any railroad station in tills state. These cattle we price delivered and ship them at our risk anti expense, thus making a much better deal for the buyer than to secure tho same on a commission liasis. If the cattle we sell you are not as represented you will bo under no obligations to take them. We also make a feature of financing cattle men on a reasonable basis, and our business is such tiiat we can ac commodate cattlemen without tying them up to pay commission charges, or ship to any particular firm to mar ket in tho fall, or any other objection able feature. Our customers include many of the most prominent rangemen in the en tire Northwest, and a majority of our cattle are sold for cash. During the year 19(12 we furnished about 35,(X10 young steers, and this year it Is likely we will be called upon to furnish not less than 50,(NX). If you want some cattle, wo would like to furnish them to you, and give you the benefit of the wholesale price that such large buyers as ourselves are ablo to secure. Please write to us about this matter, and we will be pleased to go into it with you. Very truly yours, Thk American Live Stock A Loan Company.

Fanners and range stockmen with hay on hand may count themselves rich. “During the last six weeks hay lias advanced from $lB to $24 and $26 per ton in Leadville,” says the News of that city, "and every week sees the price going still higher. It is pre dicted by hay dealers tiiat before May 1 hay will 1m? s4o a ton. Much of tlte bay consumed in this country is being shipped fron Oklahoma and Indian terrirory, everything held by local bay dealers being consumed by cattle men who found it necessary to buy ail the hay possible in order to get through the winter." Spring snow storms in Colorado usually tflve a lift to the price of feed, while they also insure good crops. It -iid Thk Herald and be happy.
