Western, 'was introduced and de
livered a short, but able and con.
vincing address and proceeded at
once to take subscriptions for the
paper. Quite a nnmber subscribed.
Rev. Wm. H. Wheeler read a
paper which was very profound,
Is the Revival Spirit of the

created a very heated discussion,
but thanks to our far sighted and
level headed Rev. J. H. MoAlster,

saved the day.

The south wind sang it sweet and
The secret thro' the grasses stirred.
'Twas everywhere a rosy glow,
On lips of every life that sing ;
But only we were wise to know,
Since only we were listening.

The Wild West show headed by
Cole Younger and Frank James
which exhibited in Columia last
Monday can be said to be nothing
ess than an institution which will
encourage boys to become desper
adoes and outlaws. Cole Younger
and Frank James have the distinc
tion of being the most desperate
outlaws in the country and less
thau six months ago when Young
er was pardoned from prison the
newspapers reviewed with much
space the horrible crimes which
the James and Younger boys com
mitted in Missouri and elsewhere,
telling how innocent individuals
were shot down simply to satisfy
the thirst of these outlaws for hu
man blood, and less than five
months ago a most daring bank
robbery was committed in this
state and a detective killed by
young men who had aoquired a de
sire for such performances by
reading the "Life of the James
Boys." How many boys to day
have run away from their homes
ana are living the lives of outlaws
because they have read the life of
these outlaws and what more en
couragement would a youth of such
inclinations want to see than last

Frank James and Cole Younger

applauded when they entered the

Deafoess Cannot be Cured
by local applications as they can
not reach the diseased portion of
the ear. There is only one way to
cure deafness, and that is by con
stitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of
the mucous lining of the EustachJ
ian Tube. When this tube is
inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed, Deaf
ness is the result, and unless the
inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be de
stroyed forever; nine cases out of
ten are caused by Catarrh, which
is nothing bnt an inflamed condi
tion on the mucous services.
We will give One Hundred Dol
lars for any case of Deafness
caused by catarrh that cannot be
cured by Hall's Catarrh cure.

only paper that gave the proceed
