Wellington is not by any means alone in suffering the ravages of disease this winter. In fact very few towns have escaped an epidemic of some kind of disease. Wellington is indeed fortunate that small pox has not appeared.

A woman's headaches may come from several causes. She may have a from digestive disturbances. Nine cases in ten, her headaches come from how itself in the symptoms which are characteristic of a dozen disor ders. Thousands of times, women have been treated for the wrong dis orders. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scription was compounded for the sole purpose of relieving womankind of these ills and paius. Thousands of women have testified that after tak ing treatment from several physcians without benefit, the "Favorite Pre scription" cured them completely and quickly. It has been used for over thirty years, and bas an unbroken record of success. The woman who hesitates is invited to send 21 one-cent stamps to cover only the cost of mailing a copy of Dr, Pierce's Com mon Sense Medical Advisor, which contains plain, clear information about all of the organs of the human body and their functions. W. R. Savage, ex-mayor and former public spirited citizen, upon learnit g of the council'sactiou last night In pass ing the cement sidewalk ordinance.put a force of workmen at work early this morning tearing up the old sidewalk in front of his residence and replacing it with a new board walk. The stringers were Completely rotted and his walk would have been one of the first to be rebuilt under the new ordi nance. Savage will thus escape being compelled to lay a cement or brick walk until the stringers of his new walk rot. Savage's walk was one of the most dangerous and disgraceful in the city, and this improvement, such as it is, will be ureatlv annreei- ated by people who are compelled to walir over it. But tin old walk couid have been replaced with brick at ap proximately the same figures the new walk is c jstiog him. (lie didn't know that.) In a few years the walk will have to be entirely rebuilt again, and repairs must be kept up. The joke appears to be on the ld mau Journal, Tuesday.

They were caught by Mr. Keir's son in-law, John Rickords, who rode out from Wellington on a horse. He left here after 4 o'clock Monday morniDg and reached the farm before 5 o'clock. It wag very dark and as be approached the farm he saw an object in the road which looked like a wagon. He stopped close by a hedge fence and made observations. He saw enough to convince him that the wagon be longed to the thieves, and he rode up. When he arrived at the gate the man and his wife were in the act of climb ing over the gate, each with a sack of c irn. The step-daughter was holding the team. Rickords demanded to know what thev were doing, and the man was at first inclined to run a bluff on him. Rickords dismounted from his horse and began to inspect the corn in the wagon, when the man acted as if he intended to strike bira. Rickords pushed him away and, al though unarmed, prepared himself for a lively encounter in the dark. The man floally weakened and offered to pay for the corn. Rickoids luformed him that he had not come out there to collect for the corn; that he had come out to catch a thief. The man and woman were told to appear at Keir's blacksmith shop in this city atSo'clock that morning, or the sheriff would be sent after them. Promptly at 8 o'clock the man and his wife drove up before the blatkmith shop and made overtures to escape prosecution. He offered to pay for ail the corn stolen and the matter was adjusted, so lar as Keir was concerned, by the payment of $18 for sixty bushels of corn. That was the quantity missing. Keir and his son-in-law, Rickords had been laying for the thieves for six weeks, and had remained at the farm all night with out tire on many of the coldest nights of January and February. They had seen the woman taking corn several times, hut knowing that her husband was equally guilty, desired to wait and catch him as well. After thev were caught, stealing, the man ar.d woman admitted thtir guilt. They claimed they stole because they were too poor to buy corn. They own the farm upon which they reside, three quarters of a mile uorth of Keir's place. The woman had been in the habit of hitching a horse and spring wagon during the absence of her hus band from home (be works on the Santa Fe bridge gang) and In com pany with the thirteen year aid girl, visiting Keir's place about three nights a week, and stealing corn. When her husband came home Satur day evenings the thr.e would usually go together on the stealing trips, Saturday and Sunduy nights. The husband invariably returned to work every Monday morning, unless prevented by sickness or when the weather was too severe for bridge work. After settling with Keir for the stolen com Monday morning, the man reported for work Tuesday morn ing as usual. He is at present with the bridge gang near Anthony or At tica. The man and woman have been married only about a year. The woman is from Kansas City. The thirteen year old girl is said to be a step daughter of the husband, and not related to the woman. She is receiv ing poor training at the hands of such the instance and place the child where she can be brought up under better influences. We are Informed that there is a law that reaches such cases. For the information of those readers who arc unable to Identify the man and woman referred to above, their names are given as John Ott and wife. Journal, Wednesday. CA.eTOH.Z.A..
