A LESSON IN VALUES.
IOLLAR for dollar, pound for pound, there is
more in Ivory Soap than in any household
soap. It is easy to find a cheap soap; but
to find purity and low price in a single soap
is not easy. They combine in Ivory Soap. You
can afford to use it in the laundry; you can not
afford not to use it elsewhere. It is vegetable-oil
soap, in the cheapest form in which it can be pro
cured. You pay nothing for a fancy box, wrapper
or perfume. It is all in the soap! It floats.

When things are "the best they
become "the best selling. Abraham
Hare, a leading druggist, of llelle-
ville, O., writes: "Electric Bitters
are the best selling bitters I have
handled in 20 years. You know
why? Most diseases begin in disor
ders of stomach, liver, kidneys, bow
els, blood and nerves. Electric Bit
ters tones up the stomach, regulates
liver, kidneys and bowels, purifies the
blood, strenghtens the nerves, hence
cures multitudes of maladies. It
builds up the entire system. Puts
new life and vigor into any weak,
sickly, run-down man or woman.

Soon after leaving schtxil she was

Scarlet fever is cutting quite a
figure with the attendance at the
schools. In many cases the number

In-en largely reduced by illness late

ever, that but few deaths are being
reported from acute diseases. Dur
ing the week ending today physic
ians have sent to City Clerk Smith
their reports of IS eases of scarlet
fever and six diphtheria.

He evidently became tired of the life
of a fugitive and desires to stand the
consequences of his acts and be able
to live again with the wife who has
been so loyal to him through all his
troubles. There is something pathet
ic as well as romnntic about Mrs,
Jenks' devotion. When her husband's
misdeeds came to light and her own
roubles were multitudinous, some of
her friends urged her to have noth-
ng more to do with him. Her rela
tives favored such a course and did
everything they could to induce her
o take their advice. But the little
woman : woum noi entertain me
thought for a moment. She said in
their early life, while Mr. Jenks was
caching school near I airfield, Iowa,
she had a severe illness, the result of
which was that she lost the power .of
sieech" nnd could . not remember
words. Neither could she walk. She
was as helpless in nearly every way
as an infant. With infinite pains and
with never-failing patience, her hus
band taught her to walk and to talk,
though it was the task of many
months. He had been as a father to
her as well as a husband. Would
she u band on him now in the hour of
his trouble? Well, hardly.
Kalph Cram, the popular news
paper man connected with the Dem

to his name last evening by winning
with ease and dispatch in the spell

church. A newspaper man of Mr
Cram's experience comes pretty near
to being a professional speller, and
as such should be barred iut by the
amateurs who had the temerity to
tackle him last night.
