Those old bearded and hoary chestnuts "valentines" will float around next Satur day. The day is generally looked upon by all to make people "feel bad." The fellow who writes vulgar rhymes and draws the ghastly caricatures, stack op in every shop window should be in better business. A large number of our citizens are experi encing a return of the "grip," which is near ly as depressing and disagreeable as the epi demic of last year bnt not so long continued, It affects most strongly those who had it be fore but yields readily to treatment and does not promise to be attended by fatality.

Ee reports trade in that town fair, bnt th'nks a gravel road from the Bales road to Okolona or Florida wonld greatly in crease business.

They claim that it is a convenience to the p. m., and that if money mast be exobanged he should pay the one taking the box. They also claim that the average postmaster or postmistress get mad and insolent when a fellow forgets his keys, which is all wrong and! doe to the p. m. or p. mistress' ignor ance of I the true condition. "Slopping1 over" is often misconstrued for "comnlimentins." To compliment through the papers is a : delicate task and the writer should ever be on guard against dropping into the net of manifest flattery, or what is atill more "slopping over." For an exempli fication of this style see a report of the King's Daughters musical and other society events in last week's impression of a con tflmnnrurv.

From the Liberty Press we learn that Frost Fisk has opened up a 'jewelry store in Liberty Center. The people of that thriving little town will find in Mr. Fisk a jeweler of no mean ability. He is a young man of good habits and his success in this new un dertaking is certain. Saturday was connty examination and the town was alive with pedagogues. One fan cied he could hear difficnlt questions in readen,' riten, rithmetio, spellin', etc., chas ing each other through the air and wearing themselves out endeavoring to fathom the depths of our teacher's learning. I V It was our intention this week to give a cut of ex-clerk James Donovan, bnt as he seems to have had an aversion to mug galleries, never having ''set" for his pioture, and as our streak-of-lightning artist is in Washing ton takinc different attitudes of In calls' in his wrath, our readers must wait until a later aate. Mr. Carnes, agent of the Wabash at this point, having signified his intention of re signing bis position and going west, a peti tion is being circulated asking the Wabash Co. to re-instate John K. Withers as their agent at this point. While we should regret to see Mr. K, leave Napoleon, he having been here so short a time, in which he has made hosts of friends, nothing would please the citizens of this community better than to see Mr. Withers and family return to Napoleon. Even the cold weather will not suffice to hush the merry serenaders, Last night, or rather early this morning, a quartette as sembled beneath our window and after some alleged singin?, departed thinking the fami ly was dead. It wasn't however. Behind a curtain stood a shivering man with gatling gun and eye in fine frenzy rolling in search of from whence proceeded these sounds. He found not the source, as undertakers com plaining of dull business will testify. We have iuBt received about $7000 worth of choice new spring goods of all kinds and these goods are the nicest and prettiest goods that was ever shown over any counter, and the low prices that we have marked them at .will sure ly sell them quiok.

Many cross ings are in a deplorable condition while those whole are but illy constructed in regard to grade.

At one time be was in the employ of Mr. Polker bnt is now in business for himself. He claims that his former employer has been bruiting abroad many misrepresentations deleterious to bis character; among others that he accuses him of stealing money while in his employ. The suit promises to be interesting. Spoiled His Office. The lower part of the court house has as sumed a decidedly broken up shape at the hands of the masons and carpenters in tak ing preliminary steps to putting in the new system of heating. None are inconvenien ced more than county surveyor Chas. N. Schwab. To successfully operate the system it necessitates the erection of a brick wall nearly diagonally across his office, shutting out three windows, thus unfitting the apart ment remaining for an office wherein mnch writing is done. Surveyor Schwab has tern- porarily taken up quarters in the Recorder's private office where he will remain until one of the other rooms is fitted np for his nse. Back Again. That prince of good fellows, Gust. Kohler, has sold his interests in, Butte City, Mon., and returned to Ohio. Mr. Kohler expects to make this city again his home, but has not fully decided where he will locate. He has a warm feeling for Napoleon, and onr citizens generally would, like to see him establish himself here. Mr. K's enterprise in the far west has been a financial success and he sold his remaining half interest in his business for big money. Better salt it right down in Na poleon, Gust, in the brightest and liveliest little city in the Northwest. You can do no better and be happy. I Did Not Understand It. It was a long time before I could under stand why so many people were running to Sanr 4 Balsley's drug store. , But upon in vestigation I found that they went there for the purpose of getting some of their popular medicines which always give relief and fre quently cure some of the most stubborn cases. The reason why they go to Sanr A Balsley's drug store is, that this house al ways makes an effort to keep on hand and for sale at manufacturer's lowest prioes all the best and most -popular medicines known to the medioal profession, such as have been thoroughly tested and found to be perfectly safe and reliable under any and all circum stances, so that everybody takes them with tbe greatest confidence, believing that they will get the greatest amount of good from their proper nse. An old Chestnut Burned. An Iowa judge has made a wise decision An ingenious youth of the State tied a thread to a nickel, dropped the nickel in a slot ma chine, got what he wanted, then, withdrawing tbe nickel by the thread, repeated the opera tion until he had made a clean sweep of the receptacle's contents. He .was arrested on the charge of theft, but the judge who tried him held that he had committed neither burglary, larceny, nor robbery, nor neither obtained property under false pretenses. He bad merely done what the inscription on the machine told to do dropped a nickel in the slot and had kept on doing it. Nothing was said about leaving the coin where it was dropped. This decision will probably abate a nuie ance. He Would Play Hookey. Some five weeks ago Ben. Goaohee one of our youths who dont "give shucks for all the school teachers and truant offloers in the State," was brought before the Probate court by Officer Burns on complaint of the Super intendent for willful and continued absence After being repremanded severely he escaped severe punishment by promising to walk tne wavs of rectitude and especially tne pain do- twean his domooile and the school house, This he failed to do and Thursday of last week asain saw him before Judge Donnelly on the same old charge. He stoutly refused to go to school and was sentenced to a term in tne re form school at Lancaster where the marshal took him Friday morning. This sentence will bring with a jerk the realization to many par ents that legislators are not passing laws for their health nor will superintendents or truant officers lay themselves liableby not enforcing auoh laws in order to humor a little ftnboorn- ness.

It was claimed that the proprietors of said yard had wholly disregarded the request of the council on a former occasion. The council expressed its displeasure at suoh disregard by ordering the marshal to proceed at once and have the yard placed in a proper sanitary condition. Mr. Cahill asked Section Boss Brown to in form the council what, if any, requests of the Wabash R. R. that the corporation has no t complied with. Mr. Brown stated that the town had fulfilled all requirements bnt nntil the weather moderated it to bean impossi bility to raise the switch 18 inches whioh was absolutely necessary tot a good crossing.

Nobthwist: Referring to an artic's in the Nobthwbst of the 29th, on "Tbe Composition of Lymph," will yon allow me to make a little correction? The lymph does not contain tuberculosis bacilli; it is a baoillus culture with out the bacilli. The bacillus is grown in a substance, probably some form of meat broth, the composition of whioh and the method of cultivation are so far only known to Pro. Koch and his assistants, and this broth is afterward filtered through nnglazed porce lain plates so as to exclude all possibility of any germs in the lymph. It is really a broth holding in solution the poisonous substances which have been produced by the bacilli; this is diluted with glycerine and some antiseptic is added to prevent decomposition. The lymph is not a "modified" germ like the lymph ot oowpox whioh Jenner used, or the lymph procured from the rabbit for the treatment of hydrophobia as employed by Pasteur. These exercise their influence upon the healthy tissues and so protect against invasion not so, the lymph of Koch; it only affects tissues invaded by the baoillus tuber culosis; it does not produce the slightest ef fect in healthy tissues and it affords no pro tection against future invasion by the same disease. ' I fear this is already too long or I would write more on this subject. Respectfully, A. E. H. Mai BE is. A Pleasant Time. Saturday, Jan. 81st, 1891, was the fortieth birthday of Mrs. Daniel Leist. Her husband had previooslg arranged to give a pleasant surprise; acoordinly about noon friends and neighbors began to assemble bringing with them well filled baskets, and af ter the usual preliminary arrangements spead a table with good things to satisfy tbe inner man. To say that the table was loaded is put ting it mildly; there was plenty and variety enough to satisfy the most fastidious epicure. After all had partaken.to the number of seventy-five, there were annmberof basjtetfuis left. The ever thoughtful ladies prepared several plates of delioaoies for sick neighbors who we.-e unable to be present. The afternoon was spent in rehearsing old times, renewing old acquaintances and forming new ones. Eaoh one present from the gray haired grand parent to the little stammering grand-child seemed to enjoy himself and although the day was rainy and gloomy without, all was pleas ure and sunshine within. Before leaving a number of very nnique and appropriate presents were given to MnJ Leist as mementoes of the occasion: Chair tidy, Mrs. Grinder; butter dish, Mrs. Isaac Shoemaker; handkerchief, Eliphus Leist; china preserve dish, MVs.
