We Dopy, from a private letter, the following indorsement and suggestions from Mr A V Huyler, who is now identified with our peo? ple and their intens's: New York, ll 1, '07 Dear Mr Wood, I think four ideas about a stock show are fine and a step in the right direction, as I believe al: should do what they eau to for? ward the interests of the boise, and in fact, all other stock in Highland c "ninty as we Rurel) have the gras* and many other advantages over otht-r counties for stock raising.

First prize could he a silver plated cup, and the 2d aud 3d prise a red and yellow ribbon. Prizes should be offered for the best colt sired bv a pure bred regis? tered percheron stallion, also for the best filly. Also offered as above for foals of registered thoroughbred stallion and registered standard bred trot? ting stallions, and regestered coach horse stallions.

This is the advice of an old eminent au? thority, who says that Rheumatism and Kidney trouble weather is here, and a'so tell* what to do in case of an attack. Get from any good prescription pharmacy one-half ounce Fluid Ex? tract Dandelion, me ounce Com? pound Kargon, three ounces Com? pound Syrup Sarsaparilla. Mix by Shaking in a bottle and take a teaspoonful after meals and at bed time. Just try this simple home-made mixture at the first sign of Rheu? matism; or if your back aches or you feel that the kidneys are not acting just right. This is said to be a splendid kidney regulator, and almost certain remedy for all forms of Rheumatism, which is caused by uric acid in the blood, which the kidneys fail to filter out. Any one can easily prepare this at home and at small cost. Druggists in this town and vi? cinity, when shown the prescrip? tion, stated that they can either supply these ingredients, or. if our readers prefer, they will compound the mixture for them.

He was strong? ly opposed to thfr-methods of many merchants who launched out Into ex? travagant enterprises on borrowed money, for which they paid exorbitant rates of interest. The following anec? dote Illustrates this point very forci? bly: Once, while talking about a project with an acquaintance, the latter said he would have to borrow the money for six months, paying Interest at the rate of 3 per cent per month. "Why do you borrow for so short a time?" Mr. Cooper asked. "Because the brokers will not nego? tiate bills for longer." "Well, if yotf wish," said Mr. Coop? er, "I will discount your note at that rate for three years." "Are you in earnest?" asked the would be borrower. "Certainly I am. I will discount your note for $10,000 for three years at that rate. Will you do lt?" "Of course I will," said the mer? chant f'Very well," said Mr. Cooper. "Just sign this note for $10,000, payable in three years, and give your check for $800, and tbe transaction will be com? plete." ?,' "But where is the money for me?" asked the astonished merchant. "You don't get any money," was the reply. "Your interest for thirty-six months at 8 per cent per month amounts to. 108 per cent, or $10,800. Therefore your check for $800 Just makes us even." _ \j^ The force of this practical Illustra? tion of the folly of paying such an ex? orbitant price for tbe use of money was sud) tbat the merchant determined never to borrow at such ruinous rates, and he frequently used to say that nothing could have so fully convinced him as this rather humorous proposal by Mr. Cooper. HIS RULING PASSION. Old Harpagon Carried lt to the Brink of the Grave. The following story is commonly re? lated as true In France: Old Harpagon was fast approaching hin end. His sufferings were very great, but he com? forted himself with the thought that as he could not eat there was so much saved at any rate. "Well, doctor," he said In a feeble voice, "how long have I yet to live?" "Only half ?n hour. Would you like me to send for somebody?a clergy? man, for Instance?" Harpagon was silent for a few mo? ments. He passed his hand over his chin, bristling'with a grizzly beard of several days' growth, when a sudden thought struck him, and, turning to the doctor, he gasped excitedly: "Quick?send for?a barber!" The barber soon afterward arrived with his shaving tackle. Harpagon, whose voice was getting weaker, asked him, "You?charge?two? pence?for shaving?' "That's the price," was the answer. "And?how much?is it?for shaving ?a corpse?" The barber paused a moment and then said, "Five shillings." "Then?shave?me?quickly," stam? mered old Harpagon, casting a fever? ish glance at the watch which the doc? tor still held In his hand. He was too feeble to utter another word, but the doctor understood tha mute appeal and said: "Fifteen minutes more!"_ A smile of satisfaction stole over thc features of the patient. The barber set to work and in a very short time fin? ished his task notwithstanding the nervous twitchlngs that distorted the face of the dying man. When the op? eration was over old Harpagon utter? ed a sigh of relief and was heard to whisper: "That's a good thing?four shillings? and tenpence?saved!" And he breath? ed his last.?London Chronicle. Sentiment In a Pawnshop. A watch had Just passed from the hands of a seedy young man into those of a pawnbroker. Before the young man got out of tbe shop the broker called Wm back. "Here's a picture?a woman's pic? ture?in the back of this watch," he said. "You'd better take It out" The young man blushed. "It Isn't worth while," he said. TH redeem the thing In a week or two."" "Maybe you will and maybe you won't," retorted the broker. "You nev? er can tell about these things. I may not be strong on sentiment, but one thing I insist on is that no man shall leave a woman's picture in a watch that he pawns here."?New York Press. Ageleas Love. It ls a splendid thing to think that the woman you really love will never grow old to you. Through the wrinkles Of time, through the mask of years, if you really love her, you will always see the face you loved and won. And a woman who really loves a man does not see that he grows old. He is not decrepit to her. He does not tremble. He ls not old. She always sees the same gallant gentleman who won her hand and heart?Robert O. Ingersoll. Union In Failure.
