Many things should he kept on ice.
IT not, they are irpoiled and useless.
There is no economy in using an old

Do you know that this is going to be a great year for ad
vertising? There will be more of it done than ever before,
and the merchant who has the right kind done in the right
way is sure to attract attention and draw the trade. Your
advertising should be correct, with the wear-well quali
ty, style and reliability in it to make it stand the test, to
make it fit for the most skeptical. I might fill this page
full of words, but can say no more than is contained in
these three words: Have wear-well advertising. Do not
hesitate to see me; I will write this kind for you.

the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
Railway company was commenced this
mprning before a jury in the county
court, the case having been reversed
and remanded by the appellate court.
It was carried up by the village on
a ruling by Judge E. E. Parmenter that
there could not be collected damages
for a violation of an ordinance in ex
cess of $200. W. A. Meese appears
for the railroad company and G. W.
Wood for the village.
Five suits, each for $l,0i0, were com
menced against the railroad in the
county court. There is still another
pending in the circuit court.
The litigation grows out of a viola
tion of a grade ordinance by the rail
road company. After the council had
established a grade the railroad sent
a force of laborers into the village one
Sunday and raised the tracks in the
face of the protests of the authorities.

The ordinance provides a penalty of
$25 ior day for each day following the
date on which the stoppage of a viola

held that there could not be imposed
continuous damages beyond the sum of
$200 fixed by law for infraction of a
village law. The village maintained
that each day after the one on which
the company had been ordered to low

Sa'ri Hoover Finds Something Better
Than Gold Mines.
There is no happier man in this

of Greenboro, N. C, who is receiving
the congratulations of his friends up
on his fortunate find of something bet
ter than gold mines or oil wells. Mr.
in a letter to a friend in Rock Island,
"Three months ago I was greatly
distressed by nasal catarrh and entire
deafness of the right ear. The labor
of hawking and scraping to get my
throat and na:;al passages free from
the foul secretions deposited there,
might be about equal to t hat of a six
mule team with a road scraper to get
the earth from the road-side to the
I purchased an outfit of Hyomei arid
Hyomei balm, and as a result of its
use my head, throat and nasal passage
are all free from secretions of i.ny
sort, only as nature designed, and my
hearing in both ears is nearly as acute
as it ever was."
There Is no disagreeable stomach
dosing in using Hyomei; just breathe
it and its pure fragrance will kill the
catarrhal germs In the head, throat
and lungs. Hyomei balm used in con
nection with Hyomei, will cure the
worst case of catarrhal deafness.
The complete outfit costs but $1,
and extra bottles are only 50c. Ask
H. O. Rolfs to show you the strong
guarantee under which he sells Hyo
mei. It costs nothing unless it cures.
