American sovereignty. Agtiitinldo replied
tbnt he would only accept absolute independence, alt hough he was willing to lei
the I'nited .States protect thc republic

Denver, Colo., March 8.—From reports
which have been coming to thc headquarters of the National Dive Stock Association for the post month, the oflicers of the
association estimate the losses from the
recent, storms to cattlemen who have herds
on the open rouges at 0 per cent of tint
entire amount. This, in round numbers,
would amount lo over three quartets of a
million head.
The reports have been received from
leading stockmen nml nre considered accurate us fur al they go. Oregon, Washington und Arizona suffered very little and
will have only nominal losses. California
is still suffering from drouth and the ;mt-
look there is bad. The losses in Wyoming, Colorado nnd the I hi hot us ax yet ha"c
not averaged 4 per cent.
in northern und Western Texas and
northeastern New Mexico nnd southern
Oklahoma nnd Indian Territory the heaviest losses have been with so-called
"through cattle," that is, cattle lieing
moved north from the south, reaching in
some lections us high ns 20 per cent.
Further  Lo**  _*x|ieete<l.
Taking thc runge sections as a whole, to
the present time, thc losses will average 4
per cent. With the most favorable conditions thnt can be expected additional loss
mny bc looked for before spring, and
should the weather continue bad through
March, u heavy loss will certainly result.
In Utah, Wyoming and some parte of
Orgeon heavy sheep losses arc reported.
It is feared that there will also be heavy
sheep losses in Montana. Wyoming reports some instances of losses reaching as
high us 30 per cent, and some claim that
if Mnrch furnishes much bad weather thc
sheep losses iu that state may reach 25
per cent.

"I had been siek at my monthly
periods for neven years, and tried
almost everything I ever heard of, but
without any benefit. Was troubled
with backache, headache, pains in the
shoulders aud di/ziuess. Through my
mother I was induced to try Lydia E

It bas done nie so much good. I am
now sound antl well."
Mrs. lUnRY Hai-vdy, Riverside, Iowa,
writes to Mrs. Pinkham the story of
her struggle with seriousovarian trouble, and the benefit she received from
the use of Lydia E. l'iukhnm's Vegetable Compound.    This is her letter:
" How thankful  I am that  I took
your   medicine.    I   was troubled  for
two years with inflammation of  the
womb and ovaries, womb was also very
low.    1 was in constant misery.    Iliad
heart trouble, was short of breath and
could not walk five blocks to save my
life.     Suffered  very  much   with   my
back, had headiiche all the time, was
nervous, menstruations were irregular
and painfull had a bad discharge and
*as troubled with bloating.    I was a
perfect  wreck.     Had    doctored   and
taken local treatments, but.si ill was no
better.    1 was advised by one of my
neighbors to write to you.  I have now
finished thc second bottle of Mrs. Dink
ham's Vegetable  Compound, and  am
better in every way.    I am able to do
all my own work and can walk nearly
a uiilc without  fatigue; something 1
had not been able to do for over two
years.    Your medicine has done no*
more good thnn all the doctors."
