liquor to a youug man under age, npon which be got

the saloon were going far beyond the point where
forbearaucc ceases. There is a strong sentiment
against the prohibitory law, and a dipitiou not to
molest liquor sellers in a reasonable amount of traf
fic; but they bate repeatedly gone to such extremes,
that etcn this public opinion was outraged. If they
have no sense of prudence, and will continue to sell
to minors and to confirmed and habitual drunkards,
they ntnt not be surprised if they are brought np

Hut for some reason, a coffin could not be procured
that day, and the burial had to be put off until the
next. When the funeral party arrived at the grave,
the widow emphatically refused to hare the remaina

to go to work and dig a new hole, and fill up the old

that the body must be buried the same day that the

For thirty-five years I have been the victim of that
terrible disease Dyspepsia; have consnlted eminent
pbysiciana, and tried almost every remedy. My
family physician nally told me I could sot be cured.
THE K1USTDOSE Of COETS DYSPEPSIA CCEE
helped me, and, to-day, I consider myself cured, and
am ready to affirm that It la tbe most valuable medi
cine ever placed before the public.

During a confinement of eleven months In Libby
Prison, I waa attacked with DYSPEPSIA In its
worst form. Vor two years I have suffered with it.
I tried doctors a great many times, without relief.
This Fpring I became so debilitated aa to be unable
to walk one square. After taking a few doses of
COCS DTePEPSIA CUKE, I ate of everything on
the table, felt no distress afterward, and bars aa ex

ED.Ciiur: In your Issue oftbeZM InsL, there
appears a communication from this place, signed
"Lex" the nom-de-plumo of Collis U. Koundy In
which he refers to matters of our church, which need
tbe committee of arrangementa for said fes
tival met tbe first time, (we both being present,) it
was agreed that if the net income should exceed
thirty dollsrs, such surplus should be applied for re
pairing tha church. We did not expect, at that
time, to clear sneh an amount, but thanka to tha
kindncsa of our fcllow-citixcns, we netted 17.23.
We paid Mr. Otto $30, and the remainder will ba ex
pended for putting a new roof on the ehnreh, and
thua the money will "evaporate, In eonsonaneo
with Mr. IEonndy 'a phraseology.
As regarda his remarks for tbe preachers benefit,
we simply want to state, that we paid the preacher
every cent we did owe him then, and have no doubt
that Mr. Otto will acknowledge that himself.
These lines wonld not have been penned, if Mr.
Roundy had made his remarks because of ignorance;
but aa he knew positively that tbe surplus money
wonld be expended the way we have stated, silence
on our part wonld appear to corroborate hU state
ment. We are not surprised that be usee this mali
cious way of seeking revenge; not aorprtsed at a
man who pokes his nose Into everybydy's bualneaf,
and publicly gloriea in it, averring tbat he doea so
to make money out of it. But we denounce this
scribbler a liar, a hypocrite, aa impecile, a vilifler,
and a sleuth-hound of the mesnest kind, only fit to
grace the Infernal abodes of tbe Evil One himself;
and we are sure that pablio sentiment will eorrobsr
ate our opinions. Jona LtiKDtxT,
