clad and plcturteque mountains. Tho water of the
springs it. as clear as crystal, of a high temperature and
the mineral constituents are so subtly dissolved and
blended as to render It wonderfully beneficial to the
human system. In addition and supplementary to
the advantages possessed by the mineral water, the
climate is one of the finest In the world. The Mon
tezuma hotel there Is very commodious, splendidly
f urnlHbed and the management and tables are all that
can be defctred, and the accommodation for guests Is
unsurpassed anywhere. The bath house Is large and
very complete In all Its appointments.

more sunshine, more even temperature, more ex

The data collected by insurance
companies that issue policies on cat
tle show that a distinct increase in
risk is caused by the use of wire
fences on farms.t Tho number of
cattlo reported as killed by light
ning is very large. In the majority
of cases the cattlo wero near tho wire
fences a the moment of their being
struck, imd so convinced are the
companies that the inetal strands by
acting as conductors of electricity
increase the chances against the life
of tho cattle that they are making a
modification of tho conditions on
which such insurance is given.
