Tho contracts. for the one-third mile
of proposed surface sewers in Carbon
dale were not let last night, us ex
pected. This was due, however, to the
confusing or perplexing figures In the
bids. It was decided, after the joint
committee of councils took hold of tho
matter that there, was much more fig
uring and calculating to be done than
could bo disposed of in a single night,
and accordingly tho contracts for tho
surface sewering were put over until
next week, when councils will again
meet In joint session, tho bids to be
figured out and accurately determined
by tho committee In the meantime. .
There was one contract let, however.
Tills was for the Tliorne street sewer,
the lowest and therefore tho success
ful bidder being Hugh Atkinson. His
bid was Dl! cents per lineal foot. Tills
contract was let because It was a sep
arate contract from the surface sowers.
The bidders on tho surface sewers are

(From tho Sentinel, debo, Mont,')
In tho first opening of Oklahoma to
settlers In 1SS9, tho editor of this paper
was among the many seekers after for
tune who made tho big rnce one flue
day In April. During his traveling
about and afterwards his camping upon
his clnlm, .lie encountered much bad
water, which, together with the severe
heat, gave him a very severe diar
rhoea which It Eeemed almost Impos
sible to check, and along in Juno the
cuso became so bad he expected to die.
One duy one of his neighbors brought
him one small bottle of Chamberlnlp'B
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
us a last hope. A big doso wus given
him while ho was rolling ubout on the
ground In great agony, and in a few
minutes the dose was repealed. Tho
good effect of the medicine wus soon
noticed nnd within an hour the patient
was taking his first sound sleep for a
fortnight. That one little bottle worked
a complete cure, and he cannot help
hut feel grateful. The season for bowel
disorders being at hand suggests this

Suggestions for the Woman Who Is

From tho Woman's Homo Companion.
It Is a fact worth knowlnc that the
keynote of the perfect costume Is Its
suitability. Especially is this truo of
traveling, for there comfort goes hand
In hand with charm, Tho more appro
priate tho costume, the more enjoyable
the Journey nnd tho more fascinating
tho traveler. The sense of being just
right enhances beauty, brightens con
versation and tends to drive off fatlguo;
therefore, what to wear traveling be
comes a question of special significance
to tho woman who Is contemplating a
short trip or a ong one during vaca
tion time. Her clothes should bo com
fortablethoroughly fro as well as ap
propriate and smart In effect. Materials
which arc dust-proof and light in
weight should Invariably be chosen for
the travellng-gowu. Hats should bo
cool and simply trimmed, and heavy
shoes and thick gloves should always
be left at home,
Tho silk thivellng-gown Is all tho
vogue this season. If It Is made of tho
unfinished taffeta, which Is soft rather
thun crisp, and us it neither wrinkles
nor spots It Is sure to prove service
able. Light-weight English tweed will
wear well and not show tho dust, and
for a long Journey Is highly to be, rec
ommended, while for the day excur
sion or the short trip linen crash, Pan
ama Java otamlne or pongee are all up.

Parson Hopkins Got' the Flooiy and
the Other Man Got No Chance.
From tho Washington Evonlrig Btar-7
"I saw by the papers the other day
that a new and bloody feud had broken
out in tho mountains of Kentucky,"
said a man from that state.. "Np. one
can fully appreciate these feuds; qulosk
he has lived In the counties where? the
trouble Is located. a There arc' riianjr
quaint characters in the mountain porV
tion of the state. Of course, there are
not many people In Washington who rer
member 'Parson' Hopkins, who was giv
en a seat In congress a number jjj
years ago over Joe Kendall, whoso fa
ther had been hi congress before 'the
son attempted to come here,
" 'Parson' Hopkins was a Baptist
minister In the Tenth district and was
much loved by his people. The Repub
licans knew that he would, be- the only
person who could win In a contest fqi
the place, and bo they nominated him.
It was many days before the chairman
of the district Republican organization
could find where the parson was. Al
lust ho was located away up In a moun
tain county conducting a camp meeting-.
He refused to discuss politics until ho
concluded his meeting, three days later.
Many Democrats who had never cast a
Republican vote put In ballots for 'Par
son' Hopkins, and became Insulted if
thoy were told they had voted Republi
can. 'We nro voting Baptist,' was the
way they put It,
"Joo Kendall had tried every way
possible to get 'Parson' Hopkins Into a
Joint debnte, but the parson would pp.t
consent. One day the parson' went Into
a town where Kendall was to hold 4
meeting and unexpectedly ran into
Kendall. Tho latter promptly chal
lenged tho parson to Joint debate, and
Mr, Hopkins reluctantly consented. His
terms, however, were that he should
have the opening. The Democrats were
rejoiced, and declared that Kenda,)!
would wallop 'Parson' Hopkins roundly.
At 1 o'clock, the hour sot for the Joint
debate to begin, tho parson was Intro
duced by tho chairman. 'Parson' Hop
kins opened tho mooting with .prayer,
then read a" long selection from the
Bible, gavo out a hymn and read pioro
from tho Bible. Finally he entered
upon his speech, When durk cam,o.ui,
was still speaklpg, by which time neaic
ly ull the men had gone to their hany-f
to look after their cuttle, horses, pffi
and us po arrangement had beep matld
for lighting tho meeting place, Kendall
never did get a chance to respond ja
the opening, t The Joke was on' KenT
