Ktrcrigtheu their faith, and has increased
Its popularity to an extent almost beyond

proprioiary medicines. It ranks foremost
among the standard preparations ot the

overcomes and prevents lever and ague

Kiiiron Bi i.letix; 1, or rather we,
have a question In orthography that we
very lMiieb dis'.re you or some one of
your leaders to settle. According to
Webster's dictionary, ; Hio
hi dl.ei'.i.j the plural ol
I'sa. . an an- tnnc cus
totu is law, and custom, I believe, bug
made peas tho correct spelling of the
word. Webster says "when a de
.nine nimn'cr is spoken ot. as
two pea-, jive peas, etc., the
orthography is peas, but an Indllemte
quantity or bulk is spelled pease." Our
d hVrenec is in the! sentence "a quart ot
pease." or "a quarter of peas." I anU
my par'y claim that "a quart of pease" Is
correct according to Webster, us a quart,
although a deliuito quantity, Is bulk nnd
not a delluito number, the number ol
(fiarta(one (plan) only being definite.
Iho other side claims that a quart Is
not an indeilnite quantity
then-lore the sentcuee should be writ
ten, according to Webster, a "quart ol
peas," because it cannot ho bulk as bulk
or an indcliuito quantity is a "stock of
p se." or a "pile ol pease."
Please give this your prayerful consi
deration ami set us right. H. W.

A Mailer of Inlwreai,
The Hibernian lire company have lor
some time been endeavoring to prevail
upon the council to appropriate sufficient
money to build them anewensjine house.
r or soma reason Hie enort has thus far
met with no encouragement, and the
members of the company have decided to
make an effort on their own behalf. The
seventeenth annual ball of this organiza
tion will occur on New Year's Kve. Dec.
31st, and it has been decided by the com-
pany to appropriate the proceeds to the
above use. In connection with the
bill a supper will be given,
and we believe it to be the duly ot the
public to assist so worthy a cause. Prop
erty holders are, or should be, especially
interested in tho success ot anything
which tends to Increase the efficiency of
our fire department, and It is certainly
reasonable to suppose that if we encou
rugo the members in a substantial man
ner they will bo only the more willing to
do their duty when their assistance is re
qired. i.i:tikii i.ibt.
