COURSE OF BUSINESS.
The past winter has been tho
dullest that northern Minnesota
has known since the panic of tho
early nineties. Just what has
caused this flattening out of
business is hard to say, but it is
a fact that every town in north
era Minnesota knows too well.
Presidential election year is al
ways a poor year for business
and the whole country has suf
fered from this cause. Still it
seems strange that there should
be so much of a falling off in busi
ness while at the same time
prices have not declined. In fact
they_ have advanced. It certainly
costs as much to live in Minne
sota this year as last year whilo
we know that numerous neces
saries and most luxuries have ad
vanced appreciably. Business is
better now than it has been at
any time during the winter and
there are indicatiens that it will
continue to improve and tha
northern Minnesota will experi
ence a good summer, although
until the national election is over
we may hardly hope for the busy
times of a year ago.

"Brown's in Town."
"Brown's in Town" the latest
farcical effusion which comes to
the City Opera house Tuesday
night is described by the mana
ger as a balm for jaded nerves.
Its humorous complications arc
highly effective the dialogue is
sparkling, witty, and the story
is an entirely new one. The
farce is free from marital infelic
ities or innuendo of immorality
and the time-worn, bald headed
benedict who flirts with a music
hall singer is also eliminated.
The conventional old maid and
lheJ.ussy_ mother-inJaw are_dis^
pensed with as well as the hon
eyed German, Irish or French
maid. "Brown" has a maid but
she is a novel one one you can
see every day.

Beware of Ointments for Catarrh
that Contain Mercury.
as mercury will surely destroy
the sense of smell and completely
derange the whole system when
entering it through the mucous
surface. Such articles should
never be used except on preemp
tions from reputable physicians,
as the damage they will do is ten
folds the good you can possibly
derive from them. Hall's
Catarrah Cure, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O.,
contains no mercury, and is
taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous sur
faces of the system. In buying

and made in Toledo, Ohio, by F.J.
