The wheat harvest in this county is
about over, and it is now possible to
! peak with something like correctness ot
the quantity and quality ot the yield
me of the oldest and most prominent
fanners in t he county called at the Bt i.
i.kiin olllce yesterday and in the course
of a conversation with him, he informed
us that so far as fie was able to
learn, and ho has canvassed the
county pretty thoroughly. The
wheat yield of this county
would average twenty bushels to the
a ;re the county over. The quality of the
wheat is superior to that ot any lorrner
year since the war. From this same
gentleman we learn that Mr. Tom Mc
Clure of .Clear Creek, has already har-
vestud, threshed and marketed his
wtie.it. Ho had about three hundred
acres lrom which he threshed
between eight and nine thousand bushels
of wheat, lie sold his wheat in the St.
Louis market, and it averaged him $1.00
per bushel. Mr. McClure is one of the
most extensive fanners in this portion ol
the state. We hear of a number of other
parties in the upper precincts of the
county who have already marketed their
wheat and received from $1.00 to $1.70

Sometime during the night Harper was

Upon the action of the kidneys, blad
der and bowels depends the depuration
of the blood. Jt is by promoting the
activity ot these organs that llostetter's
Stomach Bitter eusures purity to the
circulation, lu its passage through the
kidneys, impurities which beget rheu
matism, gout, and gravel are strained
from the blood, but when those small
hut all Important organ grow inactive,
these impurities of course remain, and
Inevitably produce the diseases men
Honed. HiHtetter's Bitters rouse tho
kidneys to renewed activity, by which
means the blood is depurated. It like
wise purities the blood when contamina
ted with bile by promoting a gentle but
cllectual action of the bowels, and has the
further ellect of regulating the action of
the liver, thus counteracting a tendency
to biliousness, dyspepsia, malarial fevers

Tlie;Lord'$ Supper 'caa teJabraudoo
Sunday at the Piesbytoriau Clitircn, a
largo number of cr)iilmuulcaiit3 hijiiig in
The Uuv. Mr. Uoorgo preached upon
Philippiaus3;!0: "Being made conform
able unto his death." The death ot Christ
is ccutial lu all scripture teaching, so that
when Paul determined uot to know any
thing else he was not limiting hinisell to
a narrow range of thought and preach
ing, he was rather like the angel that
was seen standing m the sun ; he had
planted himself in tho luminous centre
from which all divine truth radiate to
illumine and bless the world. His death
is not only ccutial among the truths
taught by Hid scripture writers, hut also
among thu motive powers they
employ tor Hie loruiatlon of Christian
character. So this death, w hich in the
Lord's Supper we celebrate, wo should
aim, like Paul, to be conformed. First,
Christ died as "the true and faithful wit
ness." Christians are His witnesses, and
should conform themselves to the spirit
of His death by bearing their testimony
unflinchingly at whatever cost. This Is
the martyr spirit. Paul was a martyr
while he lived, "being always
delivered unto death for Jesus'
sake." Luther was in spirit
as really a uartyr as Cr.uniicr.
Second: Christ died to do the will ot

The Modern TantaluM
Is altogether the opposite ot his great
namesake. The latter as a punishment
lroiu the gods tor an Infraction of their
commands, was condemned to perpetual
thirst, and immovably llxed in water to
his chlu. What must have been his teel
ings to see that tin id, which more than
all the world besides, lie wanted, within
his reach, and he powerless to drink It
What a refinement of citielty must be
such a punishment. How different our
feelings to his antetype, who though
sullering from sickness all the time, hav
ing means to meet the cost ot alleviating
his ailment, yet deliberatelj neglect us
ing the remedies to his recovery. The
majority ot sickness arises trom the tor
pidity of the liver, and can be dissipated
and prevented by the use of that valuable
elixir tonic the Home Stomach Bitters.
