"Not by a lonj shot," he growled, relates Judge. "But, sir," we argued, surprhed at uch a callousness toward the beauties of nature, "surely you, like all other ' patriotic citizens, wish to see this ma jestic spectacle of grandeur preserved ' from the ruthless hands of commer- r ctalism." "Don't care a boot about t," he muttered, turning, as though to leave vs. We clutched at bis coat lapel and begged him to wait a moment, "Do you mean to say," we continued, "that you do not care if this migbty ' cataract were changed from a marvel ous, inspiring, awe-compelling sight to . measly, factory-dotted cliff?" - "As I told you," he answered, shak ing himself loose, "I don't care. a con- tlnental cuss what becomes of ; Niag ara.

Hav? you ever stopped to think that the morning is the time when your temper 13 usu ally ruffled, and have you ever stopped to think that the cause of bad temper in the morninj is nearly always because your stomach has not ; been working properly during the I night? It has contained a lot of indi gestible substances that form gas t and makes you have dreams. It K breaks up your rest and you wake up in the morning tired, instead of re r freshed, . as nature intended . you BhOUld. I Our grand sires required no ad ' monition to "Bo pleasant every morn H ing until 10 o'clock; the rest of the day will take care of itself." for they ' digested their food and woko up full of life and energy ready for the day's duties, and this was because they lived on simple foods Instead of high ly seasoned palatable concoctions, which contain no nourishment. . Na ture gave us milk, .wheat and eggs, and on these foods a person can ' live Indefinitely, but If the milk is skimmed, and if the outside of the wheat i taken off the kernel, and If the lime, the salt, and the iron, wBlch Is in the outer part of the wheat berry, if these are all removed, you have simply starch alone; the starch goes into the stomach and becomes sugar. . Do you know that a person would starve to death on plain white bread .. and water? Do you. know that he could live Indefinitely on whole wheat bread or on whole wheat food ana water? These interesting' facts are . all set forth in a book called "Back to Nature," which tells about proper living and gives recipes for meals of the simple kind the kind that makes you strong and well; the kind that makes you "Pleasant every morning ' until 10 o'clock." This book is pub lished at a great expense, but it is given free to cvory reader of this paper; It is an advertiiement of "EQG-O-SEE," the great food which Is made from whole wheat,' which is baked and predigested and is all ready to serve from the package you buy at your grocers. You get more life and energy from a 10-cent pack age of EQG-O-SEE than you will get ' ' from a thousand dollars' worth of white bread. This is no Idle claim. It is a scientific fact. We want to tell about this simple food question, so write us and say "Please send me a copy of your book 'Back to Na ture,' " and the book will be sent you at once without charge.

PECK Author ol "Pck's Bad Boy Abroad." Etc lOaPjrWli UJ J. M. IMwiM.) Pa and the Bad ' Boy Stop Off at a Lively Western TownFa Buys Mining Stock and Takes Fart In a Babbit Drive. Well, we are on the way back home, after having engaged Indians, cowboys, rough riders and highway robbers to Join our -show for next season. ; Pa felt real young and kitteny when we came to the railroad, after leaving our robber friends at the Hole in the Wall, far into the mountain country. We came to a lively town on the railroad, where every other house is a gambling house, and every other one a plain saloon, and there was great excitement in the town over our arrival, 'cause there don't very many rich and pros perous people stop there. , Pa had looked .over the money the robbers had given him, to throw it away, because it was old-fashioned The Fony Tossed Fa in the Air. confederate money, when he found that there was only one bundle of con federate money, and the rest was all good greenbacks, the bundle of con federate money probably having been shipped west to some museum, and the robbers having got hold of it in the dark, brought it along. Pa burned up the bad money at the hotel, and then he got stuck on the town, and said he would stay there a few days and rest up, and incidentally break a few faro banks, by a system, the way the smart alecks break the bank at Monte Carlo. ...... I teased pa to take the first train for home, so we could Join the circus be fore it closed the season, and he could report to the managers the result of his business trip to the west, but pa said he had heard of a man who had a herd of buffalo on a ranch not far from that town, and before he re tunned to the show he was going to buy a herd .- Pa Swung of buffalo tor the cowboys and Indians to chase around the wild west show. I couldn't do anything with pa, so we stayed at that town until pa got good and ready to go home. He pucked the faro bank some, but the gamblers soon found he had so much money that he could break any bank, so' they closed up their lay-outs and began to sell pa mining stock in mines which were fabulously rich if. they only had money to develop them. They salted some mines near town for" pa to ex amine, and when he found that they contained gold enough in every shovel ful of dirt to make a man crazy, he bought a whole lot of stock, and then the gamblers entertained - pa for all that was out .,'1 . They got up dances and fandangos, and pa was it, sure, and I was proud of him, cause he did not lose his head. He Just acted dignified, - and . they thought they were entertaining a dis tinguished man. ' Everything would have gone all right, and we would have got out with honor. If It hadn't been for the annual rabbit drive that came off while we were there. Part of the country is irrigated, and good crops I are grown, but the jackrabblta are so numerous that they come in off the plains adjoining the green spots, at night, and eat everything in sight, so once a year the people get up a rabbit drive and go out in the night by the hundred, on horseback, and-surround the country for ten miles or so, and at daylight ride along towards a corral, where thousands of rabbits are driven in and slaughtered with clubs. , The men ride close together, with dogs, and no guilty rabbit can escape. " , Pa thought it would be a picnic, and so we went along, but pa wishes that he had let well enough alone and kept out of the rabbit game. Those natives are full of fun, and on tnese rabbit drives they always pick out some man to have fun with, and they picked out pa as the victim. We rode along for a couple of hours, fluslwng rabbits by the dozen, and they would run along ahead of us, and multiply, so that when the corral was in sight ahead the prairie was alive with long eared animals, so the earth seemed to be moving, and It almost made a man dizzy to look at them. The hundreds of men on horseback had come in close together from all sides, and when we were within half a mile of the corral the crowd stopped at a signal, and the leader told pa that now was the time to make a cavalry charge on the rabbits, and he asked pa If he was afraid .and wanted to go back, and pa said he had been a sol dier and charged the enemy; had been a politician and had fought In hot campaigns; had hunted tigers and Hons in the Jungle, and rode bare- backed in the circus, and gone into lions' dens, and been married, and he guessed he was not going to show the white feather, chasing Jackrabblta They could sound the bugle charge as soon as they got ready, and they would find him in the game till the curtain was rung down. That was what they wanted pa to say, so, as pa's horse was tired, they suggested that he get on to a fresh horse, and pa said all right, they couldn't get a horse too fresh for him, and he got on to a spunky pony, and I noticed that there was no bit In the pony's mouth, but only a rope around the pony's nose, and I was afraid some thing would happen to pa. I told him he and I better dismount, and climb a mesqulte tree and watch the fun from a safe place. , Pa said: "Not on your life; your pa is going right amongst the big game, and is going to make those rabbits Els Ax Handle. think the day of Judgment has arrived. Give me a club." The leader handed pa an ax handle, and when we looked ahead towards the corral where the rabbits had been driven, It seemed as though there were a million of them, and ' they were Jumping over each other so it looked as though there was a snow bank of rabbits four feet thick. When pa said he was ready a fellow sounded a bugle, and pa's pony started off on the Jump for the corral, and all the other horses suited, and everybody yelled, but they held back their horses so pa could have the whole field to himself. . , Gee, but I was sorry for pa. His horse rushed right into " the corral amongst the rabbits, and When it got right where the rabbits were the thick est, the darn horse began to buck,- and tossed pa In the air Just as though he had been thrown up in a blanket, and Be came down on a soft bed of strug gling, and scared rabbits, and the other horsemen stopped at the edge' of the corral and watched pa, and I got bar my horse and climbed up on a post of the corral and tried to pick out pa. Then all the hundred or more docs were let loose In amongst pa and tie rabbits, and it was a sight worth go ing miles to see if It had been some body else than pa that was holding the center of the stage, and all the crowd laughing at pa, and yelling to him to stand his ground. Well, pa swung his ax handle and klllod an occasional rabbit, but there were thoueands all around, and pa seemed to be wading up to his middle in rabbits, and they would Jump all over him, and bunt him with their heads, and scratch him with their toe nails, and the dogs would grab rabbits and shake them, and pa would fall down and rabbits would run over him till you couldn't see pa at all. Then he would raise up again and maul the animals with bis club, and bis c'.othei were so covered with rabbit hair that he looked like a big rabbit himself. He lost his hat and looked as though he. was getting exhausted, and then he stopped and spit on his hands and yelled to. the rest of the tnen, who had dismounted and were lined up at the edge of the corral, and said: "You condemned ' loafers,, why -don't you come in here and help us dogs kill o these . vermin, cause I don't want to have all the fun. Come on In, the wa ter Is fine," and pa laughed as though he was in swimming and wanted the rest of the gang to come in. The crowd thought they had given the distinguished stranger his Inning, and so they all rushed in with clubs and began to kill rabbits and drive them away from fa. - In an hour or so the. most of them were killed, and pa was. so tired he went and sat down on the ground to rest, and I got down off ray perch and went to pa and asked him what he thought of this latest ex perience, and I began to pick rabbit hairs off pa's clothes. ."I'll tell you what it is. Hennery," said pa, as he breathed hard, as though he had been running a foot race, "this- rabbit drive reminds me of the way the rich corporations look upon the poor people, Just as we look upon the jackrabblta. We pity a single Jack- rabbit, and he runs when he see3 us, and seems to say: 'Please, mister, let me alone, and let me nibble around and eat the stuff you do not wantrand we drive them into a bunch, the way the rich and mean iron-handed trusts drive the people, and then we turn in and club them with the ax handle of graft and greed, and we keep our pow er over them, if enough are killed off so we are in the majority, but the Jackrabblta that escape the drive keep on breeding, like the poor people that the trusts try to exterminate. ; Some day the Jackrabbit and the poor people will get nerve enough to fight back, and then the jackrabbit and the poor people will outnumber the men who fight them and kill them, and they will turn on the cowboys with the clubs, and the trusts with the big head, and drive those who now pursue them into corrals on the prairies and into peni tentiaries In the states, and those who are pig-headed .and cruel will get theirs, see?" I told pa I thought 1 could see, though there were rabbit hairs in my eyes, and then I got pa to get up and mount his horse, and we rode back to town with the gang, while the 6,000 rabbit carcasses were hauled to town In wagons and loaded on the cars. "Where do you send those Jackrab- bits?" asked pa of the leader of the slayers, as he watched them loading the rabbits. "To the Chicago packing houses," said the man. "They make the finest canned chicken you ever et" "Th9 devil, you say," saM pa. "Then we have been working all day to make packing houses ' rich. Wouldn't that skin you?" Then we went to the hotel and 1 pat courtplaster on pa where the rabbits had scratched the skin off, and pa ar ranged to go out next day to the ranch where the herd of buffaloes live, to look for bigger game for the show. though he would like to have a rabbit drive in the circus ring next year if he could train the rabbits.

A. regular "fo'-de-wah mammy," known by young and old as "Aunt Prudy, 'was toiling up a long hill near her cabin home with a huge basket of clolhes on her head, when she was stopped by a llttlo pickaninny sitting on the fence who yelled In a shrill voice: "Whar yuh goin', Aunt Prudy?" Aunt Prudy turned slowly, and, with frown to make a statue ' thrill, thus addressed the little negro: "I'se gwlne whar I'se gwlne, dat's whar I'se gwlne. Yellah brat a-slttln' on de fence axln me whar I'se gwlne! I'se gwine whar I'se gwlne, dat's whar I'se gwlne, an' doan yuh axe me no mo' whar I'se gwliie, kase I ain't gwlne to tell youh!"
