Leader's horse became frightened while standing at t he Exchange Stables this morning and ran away. The animal ran up the alley to Main street, up Main to Center, where he turned the corner upsetting the sleigh and throwing the occupant, Mr. Lea ler's son Rupert out with considerable force, his head striking the ground, in flicting severe bruises about the face.

When a subscriber enters a print ing office to pay for his paper, he should always give his name and post office address. An editor does business with many hundreds of people, some of whom he sees only once a year, and too many of whom he does not see but once in several years, and then only for a few mom ents. Is it any wonder that he can not remember every face and name and address? And yet there are some who feel offended because the editor cannot place them at once. We admit that an editor knows a great deal, but he must not be ex pected to do impossible things. It will save him the unpleasantness of asking who you are, if you will tell him before he is compelled to ask. An exchange says : "In the be ginning God created the heavens and the earth ; then He made the editor, the liberal 'advertiser, the prompt paying subscriber, and it was good. 'I he next day a blizzard set iu and He made the man that didn't believe in advertising, and another that didn't take the home paper ; then He rested. Then the devil got into the moulding room, and he created the man who takes the paper for years and fails to pay for it. After completing the sorry job, and having a few lumps of mud left he made the excuse for a man who settles his subscription by instructing the postmaster to mark the paper ' Refused ' and return it to the publisher."

A serious an 1 dangerous disease prevails in this country, dangerous b? cause so deceptive. It conies on so slowly yet surely that it is often firmly seated before we are aware of it. The name of this disease which may be divided into three distinct stages is, First Kidney trouble, indicated by pain in the back, rheumatism, lumbago, frc quent desire to urinate, often with a burning sensation, the flow of urine being copious or scant with strong odor. If allowed to advance, this reaches the Second stage, or Bladder trouble, with heavy pain in the abdomen low down between the navel and the water pass age. increasing desire to urinate, with scalding sensation in passing, small quantities being passed with difficulty sometimes, necessary to draw it with nstrunients. If uric acid or gravel has formed, it will prove dangerous if ne glected. The Third stage is Bright's Disease. There is comlort in knowing that Dr. Kilmer, the great kidney and blad der specialist, has discovered a Remedy famous for its marvelous cures of the most distressing cases and known as Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root. It is sold by all druggists.
