Henry Sieburg while excavating in an
o'd cellar and cleaning out an old cis
tern, was amazal to find parts of the
skeletons f one or more human beings.
The house where the find was made
burned down some two years ago, but
had not been occupied for a long time
before the Are. The only conclusion
reached by our ciliz-ns is that the bouse
was once occupied by a physician who
possibly may have had the bones for the
purpose of science,
Fred Rnhernell, our wide awake
blacksmith, was mimed to a lady from
Whiteside county a few days ago, and

It is with pleasure we note the space
civen to the Milan correspondent Gee
Whiz," and our constable last Sunday
morning. We appreciate very much the
opportunity given ttura to come before
tbe public to demonstrate their feelings.
The constable's last summer's dust bas
just settled in the race between him and
W ilson, and to say the least, real zsd
that blowing goose-grease through a
cheap tin-born bas proved a sedative
in relieving his distress. Now that he
pot tbe robe from Franing's door-step
left by mistake by Girton, bas put the
const utile (Mosbet) in a quandry as "Gee
Wbiz" has the advantage of him by using
tbe infant's nurse bottle to provide nour
ishment to make a way for each one of
them out of their dilemma. By the time
the dust is out one man's eyes tbe other
little boj's nursing bottle will be dry.
The Farmers' Institute opened Tues
day as advertised, all officers being pres

prepared on the subj ct. and brought out
many points of interest in growing a
young orchard many suggestions of ex
perience in trimming fruit trees for thrif
ty urowih. trimming in December to Feb
ruary for fruit when the tree is full of
sap. After a lively discussion the meet
ing adjourned till Wednesday morning
at 9 o'clock, and after the treasurer's re
port was adopttd. Mr Edwards was
called on in the absence of Mr. Heath, on
how to make home attractive bring in
the domestic relations as his uppermost
tbougbl to make home attractive; Mr.

Xvary Kan io H i Trade.
The old adage "every man to his trade,"
has a sharp value and something of the
Anglo-S'txon ring, b it in the subdivision
of labor iccid nt to civilization every
motner Decodes a nurse, cue decides
whe ther tbe little one is sick and im
media'ely consults her Mentor which gives
at tbe ou set an amount of knowltde at
which many arrive only after years of
experience. It is needless to state whose
Mentor or medicine she has in her pos
session. Dr. Humphrey's Mentor and
medicines are too well and widely known
to require special mention from ir
They are called for, not only
by the mother prescribing to her ailing
child, because they are mild and efflici.
cious, but by old and young throughout
tbe land in whom a continued experience
of their results bas developed a confi
dence enjoyed by no other medicine. No.
7 has become a homehild article for the
soeedy telief of coughs and colds. No.
15, for rheumatism; No. 27, for kidney
disease; No. 1. for fever, etc If the
child is troubl-d with colc, crying or
wak fulness No 3 is what the mother
gives now instead of the ol I nauseating
paregoric. Yes, it must be confessed
that tbe power is mild but it cures.
Mltin lri rise,
Wba"; spectacle is more di gus'ing
than that of a man or woman with a skin
'iwease, which shows itself in pimples or
blotches on Lands, arms, face and nick?
It is simply impure blood. See what
Brandredih'a Pills did for a chronic case:
'"For four years I was in the
mounted infantry in the U. S
army, residing during that time
principa'ly in Texas Almost all of that
t me I hail a chronic tkin discaoe, char
acterized by an eruption over the entire
surface of my legs and thighs, arms and

bad given up all hopes of ever being
