The Hon. William Spurgeon, ex
TJuited States Senator, ex-Governor of Rhode Island, ex-manufacturer, and ex-husband of Kate Chase Sprague, is now Chief of Police at IJarragansett Pier. No matter what may be the ills you bear from indigestion, a dose of Ayer's Cathartic Pills will ease you without question. Just try them once and be assured; they have much worse dyspeptics cured. You'll find them nice and amply worth the price. "Excuse me, George, but when I saw you a year ago, your face was covered with pimples; it seems to be all right now." "Yes, sir; that s because I stuck to Ayer's Sarsapar illa, the greatest blood medicine in the world. I was never so well in my life as I am now." Miss Elsie Hall, aged 12 years, is the latest prodigy in a musical way. She is an Australian produc tion and plays anything and every thing at sight. A graphic writer in an Australian exchange says she would find no difficulty in playing the hindsights off of Otto Hegner. ' A continual coughing is annoying to persons sitting near you in any kind of a gathering; besides, it Is of great damage to the throat and lungs, and is exceedingly dangerous at this season of the year. One-half bottle of Beggs' Cherry Cough Syrup will relieve any ordinary cough, and this remedy costs no more than the inferior grades that are thrown on the market to sell at enormous profits. A. F. Streitz Druggist. Miss Ida E. Bowser is the first colored female to graduate from the Department of Music of the University of Pennsylvania. She is an accomplished violinist and has arranged, several creditable musical compositions. The military authorities of Rus sia have issued an order that caval rymen shall not wear their cavalry spurs when they attend a ball. The spur is as large as a circular saw and has a disastrous effect on trails in the wild whirl of the waltz. The total number of cases of cholera in Spain is reported at 190, of which 113 have been fatal. This is an awful fatality and seems like a good deal of a reflection upon the skill of the Spanish phy sicians. " It does seem singular that so many people will let their skin become yellow, dark and greasy, (finally resulting in blotches and skin eruptions, as well as a general drying up of the blood, causing wrinkles and premature old age), when this can be remedied at so little expense. Two bottles of Beggs' Blood Purifier and Blood Maker will renew and purify the blood throughout the whole system, leav ing the skin clear and free from all erup tions. A. P. Streitz Druggist. JEhe Farmer's Alliance predicts iUat it will carry both South Caro lina and Georgia this vear, and lead ing Democrats acknowledge that there is some ground for this confi dence, in one or two states at least the bottom threatens to fall out of Bourbonism earlier even than the most sanguine of Republicans have predicted. We have been hearing a great deal about England and Germany capturing Mexican trade to the dis advantage of the United States but the official figures do not confirm those stories. The statement is just made that Mexico's exports last year amounted to $60,000,000, of which $40,000,000 came to the United States, $13,000,000 went to England, $3,000,000 to Germany and $3,000,000 to France. Justin S. Morrill, of Vermont, although 80 years of age, will" un doubtedly secure a re-election to the Senate. The only point in doubt at any time was as to whether he would accept another term,but as he has consented his re-election is a mere matter of course. He is one of the two dozen Senators whose terms expire next March. No other man now living has served as long in Congress as he has, having entered that body, in the popular branch, thirty-five years ago. He will probably die in harness. Remarkable Rescue. 3Irs. Michael Curtain, Plainfield, 111., makes the statement that she caught cold, which settled on her lungs; she was treated for a month by her family physi cian, but grew worse. He told her that she was a hopeless victim of consumption and that no medicine could cure her. Her druggist suggested Dr. King's New Dis covery for Consumption ; she bought a bottle and to her delight found herself benefitted from the first dose. She con tinued its use and. after taking ten bottles, found herself sound and well, now does her own housework and is as well as she ever was. free trial bottles of this Great Discovery at Str6itz's drug stor9, large bottles 50c. and f 1.00. An old question that was once agitated in Lincoln is ' about to be revived in the courts of Omaha. It is the question as to whether a per son forfeits a revolver found upon his person when he is arrested un less he has first been convicted of carrying concealed weapons. A thief named Stratz was caught stealing. His revolver was taken from him. While it was in the posession of the police he sold it to another prisoner and gave him an order for it. The purchaser gave his attorney, Mr. Pierce, an order for it in payment for services, but the officers declined to give it up, claiming it to have been confiscated. Pierce will bring suit for it, claim ing that the prisoner was arrested under the state law and his goods confiscated under the ordinances; that; he should have been convicted of carrying concealed weapons in order to confiscate the revolver. An aged lady died suddenly in a hotel at Birmingham, Ala., and in her bustle $2,010 w?s found secreted. The census returns give Phila delphia a population of a little over a million, and that quiet, unpreten tions city is reasonable satisfied. The full edition of Marshall Mc Mahon's memoirs, six copies, has been distributed among his nearest relatives, with the injunction of secrecy. The treasure of St. Clair county, Michigan, received an envelop the other evening containing $100 in money. It was from some con science strickened man, and the only explanation enclosed was the fact that the money wasn't his. The word apron is said to have originated in a curious blunder, viz: A napperon, converted into an ap peron. Napperon, is French for a napkin, from nappe (cloth in gen eral). Some English counties still employ the word apperon. A carpenter by the name of M. S. Powers, fell from the roof of a house in East Des Moines, Iowa, and sustained a painful and serious sprain of the wrist, which he cured with one bottle of Cham berlain's Pain Balm. He says it is worth $5 a bottle. It cost him 50 cents. For sale by A. F. Streitz. Walt Mason, one of the bright est writers on the western press, at one time employed on the State Journal is a total wreck, from a too free indulgence in strong drink. He wanders about the country like a vagabond, and is now a digusting specimen of humanity. His career is coming rapidly to a close. The original baker's dozen was the devil's dozen, thirteen being the number of witches supposed to sit down together at their great meet ing. Hence the superstition about sitting thirteen at a table. The baker was an unpopular character and became a substitute for the devil in the "devil's dozen." Bucklen's Arnica Salve.

Gold has once more been discov ered at Aurora, 111., this time all coined and ready for use. Mrs. Mary A. Baldwin, an old lady, and and for many years a resident of Aurora, died recently. She had lived quietly with a young girl. Her friends - in looking about ber house, found a $500 government bond on the pantry shelf. Stimu lated by this discovery they made a systematic search, and after digging in the cellar, found a tin can which contained $5,000 in gold. The woman in her will left all her pos sessions to the girl who worked for her: Some official census returns have been received 'from all the large cities of the country, except Chicago, which place New York first with 1,627,227, Philadelphia with 1,040,449, Brooklyn with 930,671, Baltimore with about 500, 000, St. Louis with 430,000, and Boston with 417,720. Chicago claims 1,250,000, and it very likely has within 100,000 or so of that number, making it the second city in the country. Philadelphia in consequence is abusing Chicago on all occasions now, taking St. Louis' place of jealousy, St. Louis having been carried off her feet some time ago by the speed Chicago is" traveling. Mr. Van Pelt, Editor of the Craig, Mo., Meteor, went to a drug store at Hillsdale, Iowa, and asked the physician in atten dance to give him a dose of something for cholera morbus and looseness of the bowels. He says: "I felt so much bet ter the next mornin? that I concluded to call on the physician and get him to fix me up a supply of the medicine. I was surprised, when he handed me a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar rhoea Remedy. He said he prescribed it regularly in his practice and found it the best he could get or prepare. I can testify to its efficiency in my case at all events." For sale by A. F. Streitz. A direful accident to six men on a hand car near East Helena a short time ago was only averted by the intelligence of a dog. A large Newfoundland dog was in the habit of following the men on their daily trip down the road, and like all dogs it was ambitious to keep up with its masters. One evening when the, men were returning from work the dog took the lead and there was a spirited race. The ani mal was only a short distance ahead, and, instead of leaving the track and falling in the rear, kept going at a great speed. The men never thought of danger til the car rounded a curve and came suddenly upon a long trestle with the dog no more than twenty feet ahead. He did not realize the danger until he came to the trestle. The men were horror-stricken and expected to be thrown from the tracK and perhaps killed. The intelligent dog knew the danger instantly. It flattened itself between the ties, and the car passed safely over without ruffling a hair. It was the most remarka ble piece of intelligence ever ex hibited by a dumb animal. It could not go forward; to stand still was death to the dog as well as men. It was too late to jump, so the intelligent animal crouched, and saved his own life as well as the men on the car. Helena Inde pendent. Rev. Dr. Atkinson, of Benton Harbor, Mich., was licensed to f reach m 1814. He was born 'in lemington, N. J., in 1897, and is thought to be the oldest preacher in the United States. It is said that McKibben, the decapitated purchasing agent of the Union Pacific, who is accused of having held up the company for upwards of $200,000 has retains counsel and will come back to fight the case brought against him. And this is just what the company says it wants him to do, as it will bring to light his confederates in an organized conspiracy to rob the Union Pacific.

The Nebraska senators, Paddock and Manderson, agree heartily wifch Secretary Blaine in regard to his free sugar reciprocity suggestions. Paddock says, "there is no question but that something of the kind must be done." Manderson said, "I am a protectionist but not a prohibitionist." It looks as though ti t - i we are just Deginmng to nna out where there are a few screws loose in the McKinley bill. Happy Hoosiers. Wm. Timmons, Postmaster of ldaville, Ind., writes: "Electric Bitters has done more for me than all other medicines conbined, for that bad feeling arising from Kidney and Liver trouble." John Leslie, farmer and stockman, of the same place,,says: "Find Electric Bitters to be the best Kidney and Liver medicine, made me feel like a new man." J. W. Gardner, hardware merchant, same town, says: "Electric Bitters Is just the thing for a man who is all run down and don't care whether he lives or dies ; he found new strength, good appetite and felt just like ne naa a new lease on lite. Univ ouc. a bottle, at A. F. Streitz's drug store. Gustavius Goward, formerly Sec retary of the United Stales Lega tion at Tokio, Japan, has left Washington with credentials from the State Department on a singular mission. Mr. Goward has been designated as a special commission er to proceed to Japan and arrange for a Japanese exhibit at the World's Fair. He is instructed to arrange for the exhibition of a com plete Japanese village including houses, families, and all the neces sary domestic utensils, tools and workmen to display the ordinary trades and occupations of Japan. It is intended that this shall be one of the chief attractions of the Fair. The final round up of cattle in the Cherokee strip in the Indian Territory commenced the middle of last month and is expected to close by Saturday night. This strip for many years past has been the graz ing ground for hundreds of thous ands of cattle. Fortunes have been made from it. But the present round-up will be the last one. The cattle must be all driven off by the first of October. This will end the reign of the cow boy in the Indian Territory. It is also suggestive of the approaching ending of a phase of life peculiar to the Great West, a phase of life that is possible only where there are vast areas of unoc cupied land. The lands of the West are being rapidly taken up. The days of the vast herds are about over. The last of the great annual round-ups will soon be held. The cattle king will abdicate in a few years. The time when a man could start out with a broncho, a lariat and a branding iron and gather a herd of cattle and accu mulate a fortune in a comparative ly few years has already gone by. The cowboy, with rattling spurs, his leather trousers, his broad brimmed hat, his defiant swagger, will soon join the stage driver, the hunter, the scout, the trapper and the mountain explorer in the pro cession that moves reluctantly to the quiet, peacable, commonplace ways of life. Denver Times. Cholera infantum has lost its terrors since the introduction of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. When that remedy is used and the treat ment as directed with each bottle is followed, a cure is certain. Mr. A. "W. Walter, a prominent merchant at Waltersburg. 111., says: "It cured my baby boy of cholera infantum after sev eral other remedies had failed. The child was so low that he seemed almost beyond the aid of human hands or reach of any medicine." 25 and 20 cent bottles for sale by A. F. Streitz. For Chatauqua Assembly, at Beatrice Nebraska.

It is astonishing how lightly moat people regard certain organic derange ments, so long as the pain or inconveni ence caused therehy is not excessive. This is particularly true of the bowels, which, "next to the stomach, are the most abused portion of the body. Tho wonder is they continue for so many years to perform their important office with anything like regularity, consider ing how little attention is paid to their special demands. One of the most common ailments is constipation, which very frequently be comes chronic for want of proper treat ment. As a general rule, when a per son wakes up to the consciousness that he needs something "loosening," ho takes the first thing at hand, if it only promises a speedy effect. The evil of such indiscreet medication is that while the dose may causo a prompt and ener getic movement, the operation is liable to bo followed by another, and perhaps longer, period of constipation. If this again is remedied by a similar treat ment, it is sure to be succeeded by still more stubborn inactivity the final re sult being a permanent weakness of the bowels in the form of chronic and confirmed constipation. Jfow what is needed byway of physic, in any protracted interruption of the regular operations of the bowels, is simply a gentle aperient to bring about a movement, leaving the rest to cool ing drinks and relaxing food. For this purpose, there is no better opening med icine than Ayer's Pills. Being purely vegetable in their composition, and en tirely free from calomel or any other harsh, drastic purgative, their use is unattended with those injurious effects which follow the taking of ordinary cathartics. On the contrary, Ayer's Pills are calculated to strengthen as well as regulate the bowels and stomach, and also to stimulate the liver, the slug gishness of which is often the real causo ol constipation. Ayer's Pills, being sugar-coated, are. easily taken and are, therefore, admira-" bly adapted for use either at home or abroad. They are recommended by lead ing physicians all over the world, and, in countless households, are the only medicine considered absolutely indis pensable. They are, without doubt, tha most popular pills ever made. LUMBER, SASH, BLINDS, DOORS, Etc. LIME AND CEMENT. Kock Springs Nut, Eock Springs. Lump.
