The effect, however, of taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla for blood disorders comes as near magic as can be expected of any mere human agency, JLms is due to its purity and strength. A severe shock of earthquake Tuesday afternoon in the Norris Basin in Wyoming caused an erup tion of the geyser known as the "New Crater?' which is now re ported to be throwing up "a volume of steam, stones, and water 200 feet in circumference."

The county sheriff has investigated several cases and found that the horses had merely strayed away. Mrs. Deming, the widowed mother of Harry Deming, who, during the burning of the Midway hotel at Xearney, jumped from a third story window and was killed, has sued Samantha Keck for $5,000 damages. The statutes of Nebraska relating to fire escapes are very plain, and Mrs. Beming's case seems to be built upon a substantial foundation. The citizens of the Argentine Eepublic have proven themselves to be the greatest financiers of the centurr.

An average of $500,000 in muti lated currency is received weekly at the sub-treasury in New York for redemption. Judging by the cha racter of the small bills in cumula tion the amount ought to be four times as great. It is estimated that the regular insurance companies of the United States will disburse during 1890 the sum of $83,000,000 in death, endowment and dividend claims. It is an average of $1,600 for every minute in the year. 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 systt m. leav ing the skin clear and free from all erup tions. A. F. Streitz Druggist.

The agreement is to pass the bill in a form that will secure the monthly coinage of four and a half millions of silver dollars. This will amount to $54,000,000 annually, and will use up the product of our mines. Probably the free coinage of silver would not result in any great ad dition, annually, to the volume of our hard money currency. 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."

The murder of Al bert Leppie was in that county, and if Knapp is caught the county will suffer the burden of another long and tedious murder trial. The county was compelled to vote $10, 000 bonds to pay the expense of the Arnold murder trial, and now they are threatened with another. Kimball Observer. it is nara to speaK witn patienee of the death of a woman in Omaha on Sunday afternoon who was at tended in child birth by a faith curist. Not until the woman sank with exhustion did the family be come enough alarmed to send for a physician, and when he arrived the patient was dead. This kind of foolishness must be stopped. What right has a faith curist to practice medicine under the laws of Nebraska? If these people are not prevented from committing murder by the- statutes, the laws connot be amended too soon. Journal. The Germans have a story which the home loving people love- to repeat. A father, when his daughter became- bride gave her a golden casket with the injunc tion not to pass it fptp, other hands, for it held a charm whlch'in her keeping would be of inestimable value to her as the mis tress of the house. -Not only was she to have the entire care of it, but she was to take it every morning to the celjar, the kitchen, the dining room, the library, the bedroom, and remain with it In each place for five miautes, look&gcarefully about. After the-laps,6frthreey,6arsthe father was to send the-keythat the secret talis man might be' revealed. The key was sent. The casket was opened. It was found to contain an old parchment on which was written these ords: "The eyes of the mistress are worth one hun dred pairs of the servants' iands." The wise father knewfvthat a practice of the inspection followed faithfully for three years would become a habit and be self perpetuated that the goldenlcasket and the hidden charm would have accom plished their mission. Remarkable Rescue. Mrs. Michael Curtain. JPlainfleld, 111., makes the statement that she caught cold, which settled oa-rher 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.

Mr. Cleveland could not make it convenient to go to Indiana and take part in liKyeiling the monu ment to Mr. Hendricks. Governor Hill could anddid.

Hl-health is a very matter-of-fact affair it is no uncertain and problemat ical condition. The necessity, at times, for medical treatment is as evident and pressing as any other necessity, and it is for this rfc'ason that we would earnestly caution our readers against the use of any but the most approved remedies. Irreparable injury is often done by placing confidence in medi cines which, although new and preten tious, are often worthless. It is the almost inevitable failure of these com pounds that throws discredit upon phar macy and medical science in general. Physicians are now of the opinion that many diseases are the result of a morbid condition of the blood, either through inheritance or .contagion, and that the only .rational and effective way of cur ing these complaints is to produce a radical change&in the vital fluid. The prevalence, forsexample, of scrofula is the most prolific-cause of consumption. A specific that .expels the hereditary taint of scrofula -from the blood is, therefore, a preventive of consumption. That Ayer's Sarsaparilla has repeated ly proved itself such a specific is a well-known fact that canntit be too fre quently and urgently proclaimed. A distinguished physician has re cently recorded his belief, founded on the most satisfactory 'and reliable evidence, that the faithful use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla will thoroughly eradicate scrofula." He further asserts: "I have used it as an alterative and blood-purifier, and must say that I honestly believe it tojbe the best blood medicine ever compounded." This tes timony, which has been re-affirmed by hundreds of others, should be sufficient to induce all who are of scrofulous habit to resort, without delay, to the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. - Another malady very prevalent in the United. States'is catarrh. This is also a blood disease, ahd-one of the most stub born with which physicians have to con tend. "We have, been repeatedly as sured, however, that the persistent use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla effectually ex pels from the system this most dis gusting and dangerous complaint. In a word, the way to health is through the purification of the blood which nourishes the whole system. TryAyer'g Sarsaparilla. I. K.
