DOWNING BROS. Proprietors,
Dr. E.C. Wests
Josltn, April 23.
Dr. Morgan has made arrangements to
reside permanently at Joslin.
Brewster & Co. during tbe last week
took in 1,100 dozen of eggs.
Some trt the bottom lands are nice and
moist, but tbe claj uplands require a re
District N. 6 beld its school election
yesterday. Mr. Henry Nold was reelected
for a term of three years.
Mr. Zint, who resides upon Mr. John
Joslin's farm, is very sick. Dr. Morgan
has been called in to see him.
Brewster & Co. have picketed off their
store and residence lot which gives the
premises a more spicy appearance.
The F. M. B. A., of Joslin, is still in
creasing in numbers.. Two new.' ones
were enrolled on Saturday evening last.
The railway companv at Joslin have
moved their hog and cattle yards, further
east and have made a substantial en
trance to the same.
Our schools are all in successful run
ning condition. Miss Lulu Leslie teaches
the Oiborn school. Miss Mumma the
Wake, M'8 Sheppar.1 the Walker. Miss
Cook the Dunbar and Miss Ella M.
Crompton the Willow-vale.
Mr. Jasper Sell brought in a duck egg
to Brewster & Co'a. store which weighed
4 ounces, measured seven inches in the
lesser circumference and nine inches in
the larger. If there is another duck in
tbe county that can beat that record we
should he very happy to hear from her.
In 1850 there was one criminal to
every 8.442 of population; in 1880one to
every 86u. What are we going to do
about it? It is an acknowledged fact that
criminals are rapidly on the increase in
the toiled States, and the problem will
deepen as the population increases. Mrs.
Helen M. uouear savs in this connec
tion: "To compel idleness on the part of
these unfortunates is to dethrone reason
until these pens become the abodes of
raving maniac9. To contract their labor
is to make the honest toiler, who must be
a home-maker compete at prices both
ruinous and degrading."
Ibe following taken from government
statistics shows the average value of
vield per acre of the cereals named in
1867 as compared with 1887:
In 1867 the entire area of cereals was
65,336,444 acres, which was valued at
Sl.284.037,300. In 1887 the area was
141,821,315 acres, being made more than
double the acreage of 1867, an! involv
ing twice as much labor and expense.yel
t brought tbe farmers only 9 1,204.289.-
370. or nearly f80.t 00.OtH) less than in
This decline in matket value of cerea's
has been gradual, and now that it hus
reHcheo a point below the cost of produc
lion, politicians cry out. "overproduc
tion!" which is not true, for in 1880 the
total production of cereals in the United
States was 2.718,193,501 buhels: value.
f 1 361 497.704. In 1887 with at least 9.
000,000 greater population, the oerel
crops amounted lo onlv 2.660.457,000
bushels; valued at $1,204,289,370. or
157.208,334 less than in 1880. With
this decline in values thtre has been a
gradual increase in private mortgage in
debtedness, amounting to t402.0O0.O00.
All the central, western and northwestern
states are in about the same condition.
while in Kansas, according to a state
ment recently made public bv the Farm
era' alliance of that state, "a single law
firm in one city in southern Kansas has

Death to Blood Poison.
Self preservation prompts us to kill a poisonous ivptilo, wherever we find
one. Ought we not to use the same precaution to drive the poisonous blood
from our veins and keep it out of our systems. S. S. S. was nevei known to fail
to cure a case of blood poison. And as three-fourths of the ills of man are due
directly or indirectly to poisons of the blood, how wide is the field for such a
rcinrHly as S. S. S.f There is no risk in taking it, nor is it nn experiment. It

All medical authorities agree that can

mistake to treat them as such. No con
scientious physician ever attempts to do
so. It is held by eminent medical men
that sooner or later a specific will be
found for every disease from which hu
