There was an amateur thea
trical performance at Akeley
last week, and Editor Scheers,
of the Akeley Tribune, had the
temerity to write up the perfor
mance, to considerable length,
with fairness to all. The Pio
neer unhesitatingly recommends
Bro. Scheers as a good candi
date for judge of the baby show
to be held at the Hubbard county
fair next fall.
No town will become a good
business center so long as its
business men rely on a few mer
chants to make the effort to bring
trade to town. Too often the
men in a few lines of trade are
about the only ones that reach
out after customers. Other
merchants wait until these men
induce the people to come to town
and contend themselves with
what naturally drifts to their
place. A public spirited man
should ask himself if he is doing
his part to attract people to come
to town and trade in helping the
entire business community, and
no town is a success unless all
lines are working to extend the
trade as far as possible and try
ing to bring a larger territory
into the circle of which the town
is the business center.
EDDY SELLS HIS PAPER.
Prank M. Eddy, former con
gressman and editor of the Sauk
Center Herald, has sold his paper
to A. M. Welles, editor of the
the Redwood Palls Keyielle. Mr.
Eddy is now clerk of the house
reapportionment committee and
it is understood that later he will
be appointed to some federal
position.-St. Paul Pioneer Press.
The press of the state will re
gret to lose from its ranks so
valued a member as Prank M.
Eddy. The caustic comments
and opinions of Mr. Eddy have
been more liberally quoted than

man has done much for the re
publican party. He deserves
much at the bands of the party
and his brethren in the editorial
harness will welcome the an
nouncement that Mr. Eddy is in

with a liberal emolument in the
form of a fat salary.
"GRANNY" PEASE SAYS:
The editorial meeting is not

ones are taking their place, or
creating new fields. At the re

note the many young fellows
who are gel ting into the harness,

as a bunch they are a lot of
bright, enterprising boys, and I
shall be disappointed if I don't
hear good accounts from them
all along. But candor compels
me to say that if I had my life

of a printing office, and as for

The Coveto us Man
Go not to a covetous old man with
any request too soon in the morning
before he hath taken in that day's
prey, for his covetousness is up before
him, and he is in ill humor, but sta'
till the afternoon, till he be satiated
upon some borrower.Fuller.

THE KIDNEYS ARE
FIRST TO WEAR OUT
Few Elderly People Know What to Do
in These Cases and Should Try
This Simple Home Mixture.
The great majority of men and
women at the age of 50 years be
#in to feel the first signs of ad
vancing age in some form of kid
ney trouble and bladder weak
ness. Few are entirely^ free
from that torturous disease,
rheumatism, which is not a
disease in itself, but a symptom
of deranged function of the kid
neys which have become clogged
and sluggish, failing in their
duty of sifting and straining the
poisonous waste matter, uric
acid, etc., from the blood, per
mitting it to remain and decom
pose, settling about the joints
and muscles, causing intense
pain and suffering.
The bladder, however, causes
the old folks the most annoyance,
especially at night and early
A noted authority in a recent
article stated that he has wonder
ful success with the old-time
"vegetable treatment." He
states: "Of sixteen cases of
bladder troubles and rheumatism
which have been treated with
this treatment only one very
complicated case failed to fully
yield to its remarkable influence.
It is the most harmless treat
ment I have ever found to clean
the system of rheumatic poisons
remove irritation of the bladder
and relieve urinary difficulties of
the old people. It is a true vital
izing tonic to the entire kidney
and urinary structure, reinvigor
ating the entire system."
What he terms "old vegetable
treatment" consists of the fol
lowing simple prescription, the
ingredients in which can be ob
tained from any good pharmacy
at small cost: Compound Kar
gon, one ounce Fluid Extract
Dandelion, one half ounce Com
pound Syrup.Sarsapanlla, three
ounces. Shake well in a bottle
and take in teaspoonful closes
after each meal and upon going
to bed, also drink plenty of
water. This prescription, though
simple, is always effective in the
diseases and afflictions of the
kidneys and bladder.
A middle aged man stopped at the
subpostofflce in the north end and
asked if there was anything for the
"No, there is not," said the man at
"Anything for Jane Murphy?"
"No." "Anything for Anne Murphy?"
"No." "Anything for Bob Murphy?"
"No." "Anything for Terry?"
"No, nor for Pat nor for Dennis nor
Pete nor Matt nor Edward Murphy.
There is nothing for any Murphy, dead,
living or unborn, native or foreign, civ
ilized or savage, male or female, black
or white, franchised or disfranchised.
No, there is positively nothing for any
of the Murphys, either Individually,
collectively, severally, now and for
ever, one and inseparable."
The little man on the outside of the
window looked amazed and then in a
persuasive voice said, "Please look and
see if there Is anything for P. J. Mur
Almost a Miracle.
A good hearted curate who firmly
believed that God was continually
working miracles to enable him to help
the needy and who seldom had a coin
In his pocket, though he was never de
void of the fire of charity in his heart,
was accosted one day by a beggar wo
man. He pleaded utter lack of money
and sadly turned aside, but on the
mendicant beseeching him to search
bis pockets he hopelessly put his hand
In one and, to his amazement and Joy,
found a five shilling piece there.
"Another of God's miracles," he ex
claimed, and then, addressing the wo
man: "This coin belongs to you of
right Take it and go In peace." Hav
ing told the story a few hours later to
his worldly minded vicar and suggest
ed that they should both go down on
their knees and render thanks to God,
a strange unpleasant light suddenly
broke on the mind of the shrewd pas
tor, who exclaimed in accents not sug
gestive of thanksgiving, "Good Lord,
are those my breeches that you've on
"Ducks and Drakes."
The origin of the common saying
"Making ducks and drakes with one's
money" is attributed to a game de
scribed in the words of an old writer
as "a kind of sport or play with an
olster shell or stone thrown Into water
and making circles yer It sinke." If
the stone emerges once, it Is a duck
If it emerges more than once, the game
proceeds according to the following
1, 2, A duck and a drake
8, And a halfpenny cake,
4, And a penny to pay the old baker
6, A hop an a scotch
Is another notch,
6, Slitherum, slatherum! Take her!
The game is evidently the same as
that played even today by every boy
who has access to a pond or a quiet
river when he tries to make a smooth
*#*%& i &* ,s
stone skip along the surface of the |^*C^ V
water. Its connection with the pop- f^\\ S
ular phrase is, of course, only a meta-K
phorlcal one to indicate heedlessness in
use of money.
"To the Bitter End."
One of the most interesting phases of
the study of language is the peculiar
manner in which words and phrases
originating in mistakes finally grow
into the common speech of the people.
An instance of this is the expression
"to the bitter end," which is common
ly used to denote the final extremity
of a crisis. Although perfectly proper
today, it i tj nistake The
correct piu^e to tLo better end"
and arose from the fact that when a
vessel has paid out all her cable In a
storm it has run out to the end which
has been little used and therefore to
the better end. Daniel Defoe uses the
proper phrase In "Robinson Crusoe" in
his description of the storm at Yar
mouth when he says, "We rode with
two anchors ahead and the cables veer
ed out to the better end."
Romance of the Cigar.
A bride of a year ago gave her hus
band a box of long, lean and sickly look
ing cigars for a birthday present. The
man smelled them, looked at the label
and then, with tears in his eyes, said:
"I cannot bear to smoke your present.
I will keep them always as a token of
your love." His wife was so touched
that she went down town and ordered
three boxes of the same brand and had
them charged to her husband. When
she gave them to him she said: "Here,
dear these are not a present. Smoke
them and enjoy them."Topeka State
