Drag House Enjoined by Federal Court.
, Judge Jeremiah Neterer. of - the
I United States district court, today
2 granted a permanent injunction in be
5 half of the Centaur Company of New
York, the manufacturers of Fletcher's
i Castoria, against the Stewart & Holmes
s Drug Company of this city.
The controversy arose from the sim
ulating of the labels of this well-known
I preparation, and from the evidence
r filed in the case it was shown that the
i infringing label was first discovered on
s sale in Honolulu, and was traced to its
origin here in Seattle.
The defendant company is one of the
oldest and largest concerns of its kind
in the Northwest.
The decree carries with it an order
that the Stewart & Holmes Company
recall the goods which are on the mark
b et under the infringing label, and to
i pay all costs in the suit and damages
i assessed at $4000.-Seattle, Wash.,
A Mystery That Needs Solving.
There appears to be lurking about in
this community some creature, the
sooner he is gotten rid of the better it
will be for the peace of mind, and the
tranquility of the community. On the
night of the 16th of last month. Mr. T.
Junius Lowder, a quiet and industrious
citizen, living near Manning, known of
all men to be a man who attends strict- I
ly to his own business. and never inter
feres with others, had the misfortune
to lose two horses in a most mysterious
- manner, last Wednesday he lost anoth
er horse in the same mysterious man
ner, Thursday night he noticed that
- his mule stopped eating, and an exam
ination showed the trough to contain
a substance which bad the appearance
of mo!asses being mixed with the oi-s,
immeilately Mr. Lowder drenched the
mule and saved it, possibly had he not
given the animal immediate attention
- it would have gone the way of the oth
ers. Mr. Lowder is not known to have
an enemy in the world, he is not the
kind of a man calculated to have ene
mies. but why this misfortune should
come to him, and continue with him, is
a mystery which should be thoroughaly
investigated regardless of cost.
M:gistrate Bradham had before him
las. S-turday an un'isual case. The
de!-dats. w-.re strangers, and were
ari ested o th-i charrge of hawking and,
dha: without a license. These
men gave their names as Frank Con
Itneliy and A. L. Patierson, claiming to
be representing Compton Brothers
subscription agents in Ohio. They
would offer to take a subscription for
some kind of a newspaper for 99 cents
for three years and give away a pair
of spectacles, or a fountain pen as a
premium; the spectacles or pen was
delivered immediately on receipt of
the 99 ct ats. The prosecution claimed
the subscript ,n fea:ure was merely a
subterfu- t around the license
required I. iawking and peddling,
and that the : .me was to sell the pens
and spectacles, either of whbich may or
may not be cheap. J. WV. Wideman,
Esq., represented the defendants and
S. Oliver O'Bryan, Esq., the State.
Magistrate Bradham took the vie w of
the prosecufion and adjudized them
guilty, and fined them $5.00 each. it
being the first offense,.. with thbe un
derstanding that if aney intended to
cour inne the business here -they must
take out the license. The tine was paid.
A Good Manu Gone
Died at the home of his brother-in
l law Mr. Theodore J. Simmons, in
-Charleston last Saturday evening,
Mr. R. B. Lyons aged abo':t, 81 years
Among those who attended thbe fun
eral which took place in Charleston
- Monday, were Messrs. Fred Lesesne
and Frank P. Burgess of this place.
Tnc deceased was for a number of
years, the proprietor of the Central
I Hotel, and waS well known and highly
regarded by the traveling public. He
>was ever thoughtful of the welfare of
his guests, and tbe soul of honor, up to
a few weeks ago, and until his health
became impaired, he. although not of
robust health, had the a-tive manage
ment of his hostelry, and with the help
of~his excellent wife they provided w eli
for their guests. Mr. Lyons, realizingJ
his enfeebled condition decided to re- t
tire from the hotel business, and he 1
purchased a home in this town where 1
he and his wife would live privately,
the purchased property was occupied by
a tenant,andl while lwaiting for it to be 1
vacated, they visited relasives in King- C
stree and Charleston. while in thei (
latter city, Mr. Lyons became ill from I
-wbich he passed away. The deceasedI
was a confederate soldier, a high toned <
and dutiful citizen. He had many
sncere fr'iends in this town, and al- t
though h~e lived to a good old age, his
removal from this midst is deplored.

Clarendon has appropriated about
$150 towards the fund to drive out this
t disease, and those who are found to be
. afflicted with this life-sapping ailment
a should not hesitate to let Dr. Rogers
a examine them. Over 50,000 persons in
this State have been treated already,
i especially should the school children
a be examined, for there are many who
are having troubles for which they
cannot account, and which is retarding
,fthem in their school work. If the

Sthe means of avoiding serious conse
quences. Therefore we would urge
upon parents, to give to Dr. Rogers all
.of the aid in their power when he ar

e There'is many a child not making
a progress in school that has hook worm
and its parents do not know it, now the
2 opportunity is at hand and all should
be required to take advantage of it by
being examined, and if found with the

LESSON FOR JANUARY 11.
THE MISSION OF THE SEVENTY..
LESSON TEXT.-Luke 10:1-24.
GOLDEN TEXT.-"It Is not ye that
peak, but the spirt of your Fathgr that
speaketh in you"-Eatt. 320.
Jesus "came unto his own and his
own received him not." Rejected in
3udea, he turned to Galile'e, mangr
his headquarters at Capernaum only
to be rejected there also. "After these
things" (v. 1.) e. g, atter his hna- de
parture from Galilee, and as he was
about to perform his Perean minis3ty.
;The ministry of Jesus Is rapidly has
'tening to a close, still there is much
work to do, hence the selection of
rthose who shall go before him to pre
pare for w~hat proved to be in each
city and town his last visit.
-LI The Seventy Sent (iv. 14). Verse
one tells us of the character of the
work they were to undertake, viz., to
-be heralds; to prepare the people -
against his coming,n "r. 7:20. There
is a plentitude of we, but, "the Ia
borers are few." TIhey- were sent to
: particular people, "whither he him
self would come," 2 TIm. 4:8; Titus
2:13. No matter what may have been
their limitations, the "coming one"
would supply all dercencles. Jesus
commanded prayer, but also sent forth
those same praying ones (v. 2, 3).
Prayer and work go hand in band in
a sane Christian experience. Every
Impression demands sufficient expres
sion, If It Is to make any lasting con
tribution to our characters. The large
harvest demands attention. We are,
sent into that harvest by the King'
himself, "Behold I send you;' an'l
those whom he sends are not cm
pelled to labor alone, catt. 24:20;
John 14:16. Jesus mentions four
things about those whom he'sn
(1) TheIr character. They are t: be
like "lambs." We have just ha he
figure of "laborers" presented, abor
ers who were sent. Is this then a
mixed simile? We-thik not. We are
to go forth to the-harvesting work as
laborers, that is our work, but, in our
characters. we are to be lamb-like.
(2) Their environment, "among
wolves." That is to say, surrounding
each harvest field, and frequently en
croaching as far as they dare, are the
wolves, a type of the evil one and of
his agents. Those who go thus ito,
or by the way of, danger will not carry
any excess of baggage, 2 Tim. 2:4.
(3) In the third place, they are to
go forth with complete dependence
upon God's providing care (v. 4). lhe
exact letter of these instructions is
not always incumbent upon his ambes
Eadors, chapter 22:35, 36, but the spir
It of absolute faith In a Father who
will provide, must always' possess his
'. As to their bearing, It must be
that of dignity and self-respect (v. 5).
Social demands consume a great deal
at energy in diplomatic circles, and It
is here that many Christians waste
precious energy, as well as becoming
involved in worldly practices. Their
erst thought upon -entering a house
must be for the good ni e home
(v. 5). not for their persoinl comfort.
f a "son of peace," (v. 6), dwelt there,
me to whom peace rightfully be
onged, their benediction would bring
o that home a blessing. But if he be
30t there their peace was not to be
ost, for vt would return to-the giver.
(5) Their mission was to offer, not
w force acceptance. They were not
heggars, going from house to house
[v. 7), they bad something worth
vhile and were worthy of their hire.
Ihe fawning, cringing sycophants that
>ass for Christian workers stand re
>uked before this teaching. However,
his does not sanction the dogmatic,.
lomineering methods of some. They
re to accept what is offered (v. 8),
not demanding, "a worthy compensa
ion." The church of Christ stands
Eondemned for the meager alaries
lven its representatives, yet It Is also
rue that a man usually, and in the
ong run, ges about what he Is worth.
To build up character brings a far
icher~ eo:cpsnsatica, and more hu.st
ng results, than to obtain eart.hly
trestige, care or wealth. Therefore
