A MONSTER CIGAR.
Paymaster General Bates is the
proud possessor of what is prob
ably the largest cigar in the world,
says the Washington Times. It is
a product of the Philippines and
was the gift of Major W. 11. Com
egys of the pay department. It is
sixty-three inches long and as big
ns a man’s arm. It is a curiosity in
another way. inasmuch as it: con
tains specimens of t wenty-two kinds
of native Philippine tobacco, lit a
note accompanying the gift Major
Comegys says: "1 send you the lar
gest cigar you have ever seen, at
least the largest 1 have ever seen.
It is made of a number of the finest
brands of tobacco grown in the is
lands. It was manufactured at San
Fernando do Union, in Union prov
ince. P. I. The ease is also a curi
osity. It may be called a family
cigar, ns nil smoke it, and the grand
mother is supposed to finish it or the
cigar to finish the grandmother.”
The Utah-Arizona Boundary.
11. B. Carpenter, a civil engineer
who has just completed the survey
of the southern line of Utah, says
the boundary between that state
and Arizona does not cross a foot
of cultivated land. It traverses a
desert, which is cut up by great
canyons that are almost impassable.
The length of the line is 277 miles.
Landmarks along the line will make
it possible for the boundary to be
located without any difficulty in the
future. Just east of the Colorado
river a sandstone butte rises 1,000
feet above the plain, and the very
peak of this butte is exactly on the
boundary. Mr. Carpenter named
the peak State Line butte. Not far
from this butte is another which
stands 1,300 feet above the plain
and was named Tower peak. These
two gigantic stones will always he
a guide to persons who have enough
curiosity to penetrate the desert
in search of the state line.

TO MY FRIENDS.
It is with joy I tell you what Kodol
did for me. I was troubled with my
stomach for several months. Upon
being advised to use Kodol, I did so,
and words cannot tell the good it has
done me. A neighbor had dyspepsia
so that he had tried most everything.
I told him to use Kodol. Words of
gratitude have come to me from him
because I recommended it —Geo. W.
Fry, Viola. lowa. Health and strength
of mind and body, depend on the
stomach, and normal activity of the
digestive organs. Kodol, the great
reconstructive tonic, cures all stomach
and bowel troubles, indigestion, dys
pepsia. Kodol digests all the food
you eat. Take a dose after meals.

This is the age of cheap steel
and good steel. Steel implements
have increased the production of
the soil and steel fences are now
increasing the profits of farmers
and planters by protecting crops
and holding stock at a minimum
cost. The prosperity of the coun
try is reflected in the enormous
demand for and corresponding
output of steel and there was never
a better time to improve the farm
by putting up steel fences that
can now be bought cheaply and
which will last a life time.
The approved steel fence to-day
is made of heavy Bessemer steel,
heavily coated with galvanizing.
The fence is woven by machinery
in the works. Such a fence is the
Field and Hog Fence which is
delivered to the planter in rolls of
twenty or forty rods. This has
heavy bars of Bessemer steel wire
and stays of No. 12 wire placed
twelves inches or six inches apart.
The larger mesh is suitable for
large enclosures, pastures, ranches
etc. The smallest mesh is recom
mend for hogs pens, sheep or cat
tle yards. The fence can be ob
tained in heights from 20 inches
to 5? inches.
