When it first became known that dan druff is the result of a germ or parasite that digs into the scalp, and saps the vitality of hair at the root, causing fall ing hair and baldness, biologists set to work to discover some preparation that will kill that germ. After a year's la bor in one laboratory, the dandruff germ destroyer was discovered; and it is now embodied in Newbro's Herpi cide, which besides curing baldness, and thinning hair, speedily and per manently eradicates dandruff. "De stroy the cause you remove the effect." Candidate for Supervisor.

Stevensville, April 3,1900— A very successful entertainment was given at Buck's hall last Saturday night for the benefit of the public school. The programme consisted of two short comedies entitled "A Scheme That Failed," and "Aunt Susan Jones." A song by Miss M. E. Wright, "Be cause I'm Twenty-five;" instrumental music by Messrs. Alien May and Jos. Dagnais; two quartettes by Misses Bertie May, Lucy Williams, Edith Lowney and Effie Buker; a dialogue, by Mrs. J. F. Sharpe and Mr. Robt. Sawyer; and also one by Miss Myrtle Dobbins and Mr. W. E. Baggs. All parts were exceptionally well sustained and it would be difficult matter to pick any out for special mention. Each of the dialogues elicited roars of laughter and the large audience was in good humor from start to finish The programme was interspersed with selections on the violin, by Prof Rumble. Very little excitement attended the local election on Monday, not with standing that there was a close race between Henry Buck and J. F. Bor ough, for alderman in ward No. 2, the former gentleman winning by one vote. The election resulted as follows: Albert May, mayor; John Dowling and George Kain, aldermen in ward No. 1; and Henry Buck and Cal Cook, alder men in ward No. 2. The elect are all shrewd and capable business men and under their administration we are sure of a ripple from the much talked of wave of prosperity. Thos. Clark is rapidly disposing of his stock of goods, preparatory to re tiring from business. He will take Horace Greeley's advice and 'go west.' May he grow up with the country. There will very shortly be a change in the partnership of the Amos Buck Mercantile Co. by the retirement of John Dowling and the admission into the concern of E. P. Woods. Mr. Dowling will go into business himself, probably in the store to be vacated by Mr. Clark, and will undoubtedly build up a big business, particularly if he uses the Western News, the best, and only good, advertising medium in the county. The Good Templars of Stevensville are making elaborate preparations for the celebration of their 18th anniver sary, on Sunday, May 6. The pro gramme will include a service of song and recitations and the ministers of the town are to be invited to speak. The Good Templars, elated with their recent successes which have lifted them out of the mire of debt, announce that on the occasion of their anniver sary there will be no charge for ad mission and no collection.

A Fartiac Made In Renting Sheep and Cows Left (n a Tangled Condition—Some Queer Traits. , John Gormley's heirs are trying to straighten out the affairs of about tlie most tangled up estate ever left to a family of boys and girls by an eccentric father. (iormley died a short time ago in the town of Wilna, Jefferson county, N. Y„ and his neighbors believe that he was the wealthiest farmer that ever lived in the northern part of New York state. His first venture in business was to buy a sheep. This he rented to a neigh bor who was to return him two sheep at the end of three years. Every dol lar he could earn • went into sheep, which he let out on shares in the same way. He had 300 sheep in less than ten years. Then he turned his attention t.o cows. This was at the beginning of thç war, when milch eows were scarce and fodder plenty. The cows he rented at ten dollars a year, and half the herd of many a well-to-do farmer was his prop erty. He had leases regularly prepared, in which the man who rented the cow agreed to keep it insured, feed if well, and if he kept it until it was eight years old, he contracted to return a two-year old heifer instead of the cow to Gorm ley. In this way lié kept his stock young. The rent money went into more cows. Ilis live stock was rented over three counties, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence, and it took him three months every year to go around and collect his reut. With the opening o£ the Utica and Black Hiver railroad came a change in his business. It was a severe blow to him. It tapped his territory, and farmers could ship their surplus hay to market. This brought' down tlie rental value of cows, and for ten years or more five dollars was the price. Even at this, with cows cost ing from $20 to $30, the enormous inter est lie made is easily.figured. He was foreed after a time to turn his attention to real estate. Some farm* ers who hired eows from him could nqt pay tlie rent. Then he took notes/ which gradually became mortgages, and then lie had to take the farms. He subscribed to nearly every local pa lier within a radius of 75 miles of h}s home, for the purpose of getting the advertisements of mortgage fore closure sales. He was present when the sales came off, and if a bargain pre sented itself lie had the money in his pocket to pay down. It was one of his characteristics to keep his business to himself after hip wife died, a few years ago. A short time before lie died :t lawyer, who did much business for him, asked him to list his property in order that his chil dren might know where to find it should anything happen to him. This he refused to do, saying that the chil dren might hunt for it. And this they, are doing. The county records in thre« counties are being searched, and farm after farm they find he owned. Mort gages that they never heard of, cows and sheep that they never dreamed of, they find belong to them. The man had a remarkable memory. He could not write. His cow leases were all written. When his pocket book was properly arranged he could pick out any man's lease. For the pur pose of testing him the friend asked about a certain man's lease, and Uorm ley ran them over, touching the edges as if counting, and brought it out. Few knew that lie could not write. If he wanted some one to read for him his ex cuse would be that he did not have his glasses with him. Three sons and five daughters survive him, all well educated. Two of them went, to California as teachers and mar ried there. They are settling up their affairs without tlie aid of a lawyer. When a farm is found belonging to them they get together and bid for it, the highest bidder taking it. The same plan is followed with the personal property. So far more than 2,1)00 ueres of land, in 14 farms, with buildiugs and stock, have been found to belong to him. it is not be'ieved that all the per sonal property will ever be discovered. Lawyer L. J. GoodaU, of this city, who knew and did business for him for". 30 years, says he was worth more than $ 200 , 000 . Two sons and one daughter are un married. The oldest son was married a few years ago. His father picked out his wife, and shrewdly hastened the match by telling the son that the girl was after his money; then accusing the girl's father of trying to set a trap for . the son, and getting up such a row gen i erally that, he was not invited to the . J wedding at the bride's home, liut'he ' was there, and made his peace by tell ing bow he hastened the match by his opposition, and to show his good faith he presented to his son a deed of a 250 acre farm, all stocked, the house fur nished, and everything ready for the young people to begin life as prosper-. ous farmers.—Chicago Inter Ocean, ..
