That bad health and good living often go together as cause and effect is a prop osition which will be accepted at once by any practising physician. Common sense living would demand that we ate only when hungry and that food should be chosen first for its nutritive value and then for its palatableness. So-called "good living" reverses these rules. Meals are taken at stated hours without refereuce to hunger or physical require ments. If appetite is lacking, stimulat ing cordials or liquors are often used to induce a false appetite. Food is not chosen with regard to its nutritive value but for its pleasure to the palate. As natural result the stomach is over-loaded with a quantity of innutritious material and the body is deprived of its due nour ishment. Presently disease of the stom ach and digestive and nutritive systems begins, frequently involving heart, liver, kidneys and other organs. THE PROSPERITY OI« AMERICA gives every man the opportunity for good living, and almost every man takes advantage of the opportunity. The aver age laborer in the United States lives as only very prosperous people can live in Europe. He lives too well. It is a sing ular thing to say but it is nevertheless a fact that one of the greatest evidences of national prosperity is found in the great army of dyspeptics which is being newly recruited every day in the year by good livers. The great trouble is that when a man wakes up to the fact that his stom ach can't be aDused with impunity, the damage is already done. He has joined the army of dyspeptics, the people with "weak" stomachs. He can't eat much now without it hurts him. His stomach seenis unduly distended after eating. There are bitter risings and belcliiugs, a constant feeling of discomfort and weight in the region of the stomach. Probably, too, the liver becomes sluggish, and there is a feeling of lassitude with headache. These are only a few of the signs and symptoms of a diseased stomach involv ing the other organs of digestion and nutrition. Disease won't cure itself, so that it's folly to neglect treatment thinking "it will be all right again after a time." Disease never stands still, so that every day's delay in using the right treatment means a worse condition. "I was a great sufferer from dyspepsia for over two years, and I was a complete physical wreck," writes Mr. Preston K. Fenstermaclier, of Egypt, Lehigh Co., Pa. Had many torturing, gnawing and aching pains,—I think about all that a dyspeptic has or ever could have. I also F. L. Davis and M. Olmstead drove to Modale Sunday.

Dr. Giddings and wife visited friends in Harris Grove yesterday, and the Doctor says corn looks very well over in that part of the county.

Arthur Dickey of this city, who has been a great sufferer for the past few weeks from a serious affection to one of bis feet, underwent a delicate oper ation at the Methodist hospital in Omaha Saturday. When the surgeons cut into the foot they found an ab scess had formed on one of the bones of the foot necessitating the removal of the bones Yesterday the un fortunate jouug man was doing nicely and it is thought the operation will prove highly successful. W. Lorringer has now brought suit against Simon Dunbar, in which the plaintiff seeks to recover damages for the injury done to his growing crops through the action of Dunbar, who Lorringer claims turned several head of cattle and horses into his garden almost totaly ruining the product of his toil. The case has been set for Saturday, August 24th, at which time Justice Dance will give the suit due attention. If the controversy between these two farmers continues much longer the once famous Jones county eaif case will have to take second money. It is perhaps not generally known that there is a woman iu town who is keeping house for two husbands. It appears that many years ago the first husband left for the west, and uot hearing from him for many years and supposing him dead, perhaps, she mar ried another man. Sometime after wards the iirat husband returned and asked for a home with his wife and her second husband, which both the latter seemed to cheerfully grant. So far as anyone knows they get along very nicely together, the second hus band being well to do, a retired farmer, and all highly respected citizens.— Coon llapids Enterprise. suffered tnuch with constipation. I tried many different medicines which were recommended to cure the trouble but these only made me worse aud my con dition was more sluggish and weak [than before. My stomach was in such a wealc condition that the least and easiest kind of food to digest would get sour in my stomach and I had such a weak and de bilitated appearance that it seemed as if I had hardly any blood in my whole body. Muscles were soft and flabby, circulation poor and slow. Suffered greatly from cold hands and feet. At last I came across an advertisement of Dr. Pierce's. I wrote to them for a question list blank which I filled out and returned to them stating my svinp t&ms and pains. To my great surprise I received by return mail the best and most substantial advice that I ever be fore read. This advice gave me the greatest confidence in the World's Dis pensary Medical Associa tion, even so great that I at once left off all former remedies and tried Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and Pleasant Pellets.' I used about eight vials of the Pellets' ami ten bottles of the 'Discovery' which brought me back to my former state of health." "MIGHT IS RIGHT" not in monopoly but in medicine. The medicine that has the might and power to cure such a dis eased condition as Mr. Fenstermacher's is the right medicine to use for the cure of similar forms of disease. Dr. Pierce's Gclden Medical Discov ery cures diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutri tion. It enables the per fect digestion and assimi lation of food so that the body is built up iu nat ure's own and only way, by food perfectly digested and assimi lated. Organs remote from the stomach are often involved with it in disease be cause of its failure to supply the nutri tion on which the strength of each organ depends. Golden Medical Discovery cures these diseases of heart, liver, lungs, kidneys and other organs, by curing the cause of disease in the stomach and its allied organs of digestion and nutrition. "I have received more benefit from your medicine than anything I have taken," writes Mrs. N. Beruier, of-461 Elm Street, Oshkosli, Wis. "I had liver complaint for the last fifteen years, com plicated with dyspepsia and gall stones. I have doctored with seven of our promi nent doctors and not one or all of them have done me the good, nor began to do what your medicines have. I have used three bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Med ical Discovery, one vial of his Pleasant Pellets' and one bottle of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and have gained about eighteen pounds since I first began to take these remedies. Can say truth fully that your medicine is the best I ever found for liver complaint and dys pepsia." There is no alcohol in Golden Medical Discovery" and it is entirely free from opium, cocaine and all other narcotics. Sometimes the dealer tempted by the little more profit paid by less meritorious medicines will offer a substitute for "Golden Medical Discovery" claiming that it is "just as good." Substitutes are always suspicious. The only way to be sure of the cure you seek is to get"the medicine which cured others—"Golden Medical Discovery." NOT l'OR SALE.

The Chicago, Burlington and Quitiey has done away with the newsboy, or "butcher" as ho is more familiarly known, on their passenger trains. In this they have followed the lead of a number of other roads. The "butcher" while at times a convenience to pas sengers, was more frequently a nuis ance, and the road decided to abolish the system. The road has decided to establish news stands at its principal depots so that its passengers can still secure what periodicals or newspapers they desire, without being plagued to purchase some trinket or memento.— Clinton Age. The Logan Observer says: "The teachings of the Harrison Co. Teach er's Institute seems to have turned a few, at least, toward the broad (ields of investigation. As a proof of this we have to show an experiment recently perpetrated upon one of the Institute's fairest (lowers and one of Logan's most gallant youths, illustrating the appal ing force of water falling from a height That hydraulic power has been used to wash away immense quantities of eirth and rock is a well known fact, but this is the Iirat time to our knowl edge that it has bean used for the an nihilation of love's young dream.

Mayor and City Council in Perfect Accord Regarding Municipal Ownership. A canvass made today to ascer tain the sentiment of the city coun cil and Mayor James, relative to the municipal ownership problem, reveale the fact that the council is iu perfect accord with Mayor James regarding the light propo sition, a majority of t.ha council favoring tho purchase of tho Mis souri Valley Electric Light com pany's plant, provided the proper ty of the same can bo purchased for its present worth. Mayor James—"I B. A. McKay, W. think the people fully understand how I stand on the city's owning its own plants. I was among the few who first fought the proposition to grant a franchise for waterworks and was called a fool for so doing by parties who claimed to be my friends. I am sure the people can sec for themselves what kind of a fix we would be in if we had voted a franchise for the waterworks. I will say that I am in favor of the city owning everything connected with the city in general. In fact wo can't afford to do anything else and every time we do we are mak ing a mistake."

Amen, Council man First Ward—"I am not in fa vor of the city of Missouri Valley establishing a plant here, the same to be operated in dirict competi tion to the Missouri Valley Elec tric Light company, which at pr es ent holds a legal franchise. In stead, I do favor the council taking some action looking toward the purchase of the light company's property. Auy other action in this matter would, to my mind, oc casion litigation expensive and de cidedly disagreeable to all con cerned. Councilman First Ward—"Provided the property of the Missouri Valley Electric Light company can bo purchased for what it is worth A'oir, not what it cost when installed, I am in favor of the city purchasing the plant aud operating it as municipal property henceforth."* Councilman Sec ond Ward—"To me the purchase of the plant of the Missouri Val ley Electric Light company is but a simple business proposition. As the matter now stands the tax pay ers of this city are called upon to pay over $2,000 annually for the lighting of the streets of this city, and to say the least tho service is not absolutely satisfactory. Pro vided the bonds can be voted I would favor immediate action be ing taken in the matter, first con sidering the purchase of the prop erty of the Missouri Valley Elec tric Light company." C. Fensler, Councilman Second Ward—"I cannot see whore Ihe tax payers of (his city would be benefitted by tho purch ase of tho Electric Light plant. However I do think it would be advisable to establish a plant for the purpose of lighting the streets of the city." M. O'Connor, Councilman Third Ward—I have always been in favor of municipal ownership of electric light, water, etc. It has practically been demonstrated that wherever you find those re sources owned and operated by tho municipality that it has been a benefit to the citizens and all in terested both financially and oth erwise." H. H. Fisher, Councilman Third Ward—"Regarding tho municipal ownership question I stand tolay exactly where I did several years ngo during the fight over the proposition to vote a fran chise for the waterworks syttem to a company. I am decidedly in favor of municipal ownership of the electric light plant so far as concerns tho city's interests. While I do not exactly favor the purchase of the local company's plant, I am in favor of installing a dynamo for the purpose of light ing the streets." S Hoar—"Since the fran chise controversy concerning the waterworks system I have favored municipal ownership of public utilities.
