Milton the express agent, bravely held

traiu-robbers and causing a retreat of
the others. Unfortunately the brave
messenger was himself wounded and it
is feared he will lose tn arm as the

Candy Diet is s Good Thing for the Soldiers.
From the Lo Angeles Times.;
Nkw Yobs, Vth. 10. A good many
people found amusement in tin an
nouncement in the English papers
that the Queen had presented a box
of chocolate to each of the soldiers in
South Africa. Others, however, who
are aware of the feeding properties of
suirar, saw in the present a very
sensibie provisio'a for the sustenance
of soldiers. The nutritive value of
sugar has been sa far recognized by
the United States government that
candy hus been added to the rations
of the American soldier. Noc less
than Hfty tons of confectionary have
been sent to the troops in the Philip
pines, Cuba and Puerto Kico. Choco
late creams, cocoanut drops, lemon
drops and acidulated drops are the
most in favor. These are sealed in
one pound cans of an oval shape to fit
the poekets of a soldier's uniform.
The Germans, after many tests to dis
cover the value of sugar in promoting
the endurance of soldiers, are making
regular issues of chocolate and other
candies to the German army. Med
ical men says that jam is one of the
best foods that a soldier can have and
large quantities of it are now included
in the food provisions for military

credit to a much larger town. It was a
pleasant evening for all whoatteuded,

Joe Mulhatton believes he has at
last discovered the Lost Dutchman
mine, some ten miles south of the
Ripsey. While hunting mountain sheep
recently he discovered one of these
rare animals standing upon a huge
boulder lying isolated on t!ie plain.
Putting his trusty rifle to his shoulder
he drew a bead on the sheep and shot
bim down, the animal disappearing at
the same time. Dismounting from his
faithful horse, he found it impossible
to scale the walls of the rock, which
stood some twenty feet high on all
sides. With his riata Joe managed to
attach the loop over a projecting ledge,
and hand over hand he mounted the
boulder. What was his astonishmeut
to discover the opening of a deep shiift
some four feet square, and that his
60-foot riata would not begin to reach
the bottom. Mr. Mulhatton came to
town and reported his wonderful dis
covery and leaves to-day with ropes
and windless to explore the mystery.
The only thing that bothers Joe is
how that sheep got on top of the rock,
but he has promised to find out and re
port the result to the Thibuxe.

pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Hull's Catarrh
Cure is taken'iDternally, acting direct

of the system,, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patieut strength by building up
