needs no further recommendation to

his past record. For years he has

and during all that period has filled
his post of duty to the entire satis
faction of not only the bank but to
the man- patrons of that institution
with whom he has chme in contact.
The good work goes on. Another
reminder of the past is being re

lor the onward march of progress in
Prescott. This morning the work of
tearing away the old dilapidated
frame building on South Cortez

A fire alarm was sounded a little
after midnight this morning for a
fire in East Prescott and the fire de
partment draci?ed a hose cart and
hook and ladder truck up the hill to
the scene of the incipient blaze. It
proved to be a wood pile on fire in
the alley in the rear of T. W. Otis.
The fire originated from putting hot I
ashes in a box sitting alongside the j
wood pile and if there had been a
wind blowing at the time it might
have proved very disastrous. This is
the third fire reported during the
past week from this cause, each of
them occurring at night.
During the whole period of the ex-1
istence of the Boston Ideal Opera j
company and the Andrews Opera
company, they have never carried so
evenly a balanced company nor pre
sented as attractive a repertoire of i
opera as they are doing this season.
Always aiming to give the best pessi
ble in that line and always succeed-!
ing to a remarkable degree, it is the i
universal verdict of the press of the
cities where they have appeared this
season, that the company is stronger
in every respect that ever before.
This is the highest compliment that
could be paid them. The cast, taken
all the way through, is without a
weak spot, the chorus is made up of
extremely pretty girls, with good
voices. The costumes are all new
and handsome, the orchestra fine, and
the performance moves with a snap
and precision that is refreshing.

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the
best medicine for the cure of womanly
ills. It not only cures headache and
backache but it cures the womanly ills
which cause these pains.
"I am so mnch better since I com

you have taken, and hope that others
will find the same benefit from your valu

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is
not offered as a cure-all. It is a woman's
medicine, and it accomplishes perfectly
the cure of womanly diseases. It estab

Prescott came near having what
might have been a serious fire Thurs
day night. Miss Towles, the dress
maker, had taken up some ashes in a
pan and set the pan down near the
wood shed at the rear of her dress
making parlors on Cortez street. The
high wind which prevailed that night
fanned the fire into a flame and this
flame was blown against the wood
shed causing the boards to ignite and
in a minute or two flames were leap
ing several feet high. Mr. Morris,
the grocery clerk for T. WT. Otis was
on his way home and happened to
see the fire and gave the alarm. In a
few moments enough water had been
thrown on the flames to extinguished
them, thus saving several frame
houses in that vicinity, but in five
minutes more the fire would probably
have been under such headway as to
have caused considerable loss. This
should serve to warn people against
carelesssness in handling ashes which
have coals in them, as this is the sec
ond incipient fire this week from the

years but was not considered to be
in any danger, and was, at the time
of his death, which took place Dec.
