A False Diagnosis.
La Grippe is confounded by many
person with a severe attack of catarrh,
which in some respect resembles
the former. These individuals suffer
severely with pain about the fore
head, eyes and ears, with soreness in
throat and stoppage of the nasal pas
sage, and in fact, are incapacitated
forwork of any kind fordaysatatime.
These are catarrhal sufferers. Ely's
Cream Balm has been used with the
best resu.lt in such cases. The remedy
win gave instant renei.
, A Coincidence.
Our old Democratic citizen, D. J.
Humphrey, has in his possession an
old Spanish silver pieoe, which bears
the date 1776. The piece of money was
dug up from the canal bank by Mr.
McCabe, a few miles down the river,
on May 10th, 1870, when it was just
one hundred years old, the date be
ins: the same day upon which the
. . . . i ni i . .i .. i
Centennial was opened at rnnnuei
phia, and at about the same hour in
the day the coin was found, 10 o'clock
a. m. Mr. H. came in possession of
the piece on a bet made in 1876, that
Tilden would carry New York. He
values the piece quite highly.

Farmers' Ice House.
If the farmer would have any of
the luxuries that are possible to
those who live in cities, there is
nothing . that will - insure them so
cheaply as a good ice house. A
suitable building for holding ice may
be built wholely above ground or
partly below and partly above, but
in either case it should have a good
drainage, -and tight rootling, and
amnio arransement fof ventilation.
There should be a space of from
eighteen to twenty-four -inches be
tween the walls, and the cubes of
ice. This soaoe' is best filled with
sawdust, or in the absence of this
with fresh leaves or chopped straw.
The ooening should be on the North
side of the building, and it is best if
the building is not - exposed to "the
sun or winds. -
Tuesday evening of last week he was
waylaid by lootpads, in tne neign

the robbers took hold of his team
another poked a revolver into his
face and demandd his money, which
he shelled out to him to the extent
of $40. Sheriff Pender and Marshal
Burns were notified of the holdup,
and they immediately repaired to
the scene, but could find no trace of
the rascals. Mr. S. is a poor man and
the loss falls heavily upon him.

As the holiday season is approach
ing the postoffice department is send

The necessity of plaoing enough

preventing delay. Inasmuch as many
articles of merchandise are prohibit

How and Why It ICains.
Rain is an accumulation of the tiny
particles of the vapor of the atmo
sphere into drops. These drops,
first small of size, attract others of
their kind and become drops of such
magnitude that they fall to the earth
because of their weight. There isa lim
it to the quantity ot water which the
air is capable of absorbing and re
tain as invisible vapor. Warm air is
able to hold more than cold air.
Hence; when the air which is saturat
ed with moisture becomes cold for
any reason whatever, it can no longer
retain its moisture. A portion must,
under such condition, accumulate
into drops. These fall to the earth
in the shape of rain.

It is ruled by the postal authorities
that any reduction in the size of the
postal card by clipping, rounding off
the corners or otherwise, will subject
the receiver of the card to a charge
of one cent on delivery. This makes
a postal card equivalent to letter
postage. Many people enclose pos
tal cards to correspondents in e nvel
opes too small, believing a little
clipping will not make any differ
ence. Others round off the corners
for ornamental purposes or conveni
ence in handling. Don't do it again.

that will show some intresting facts
in this connection. The statistics
are taken from the last report of the
.National Federal congress, a union
of all the leading benevolent orders
having an insurance feature, at the
close of 1893.
There were, according to this re
