to-day's Lkaiikh regarding the rascals
with the pepsin nnd butter racket,itnd
I am glad I am onto the game us 1
can't tell just when I mny be worked.
I consider myself pretty pert, but
those bllek-tongued devils get away
with tho best of us "
Thus spoke a fanner IoTiik Lkakk.ii
reporter yesterday in reply to atiuurry
relative to the condition of crops and
"slch" In his locality.
"Hut I'vo heard of another new
scheme that It would be well to
warn farmers about and that Is the
p.itcut wagon tongue racket. Tho
way it works is this, and hero tho ge
nial farmer described the new fake:
"Swindler No 1 calls upon you with
n patent wagon tongue and informs
you that having made a big thing out
of It, he Is on his way homo with only
this county to sell. He tells you that
you can have It for S'.'JO and if you
want It to write to him. In a few
days a patent right man conies along.
He has heard that you have the right
of tho county for tho putent wagon
tongue, und as he has made a big
thing out of it in adjoining states, he
wants to buy the county. He offers
you 55(H) anil gives you 510 to bind the
bargain. You finally write to the
first swindler, sending him your note
for S2S0. The patent right man Is
never heard of again, but your note
bobs up in the city In a few days and
you are out just 240."

Alva Is situated on tho North

In the latter part of July a strange

It aeled quecrly and Mr. Eldrldge go

of tho matter, although thu wound

ago he began to feel bad aud was soon
forced to take his bed. The dlncnso
developed rapidly and in n short time
he was a raving mania?, froth'ng at
the mouth, scratching and biting like
a tat and mewing and spitting. Al
though weak it took several strong
men to hold him in bed, and llnally
they had to strap him to the bed,. His
principal delusion was that he was
fighting a cat, and his struggles nnd
cries were terrible and pitiful. lie

He was a man about I.", years of age
