The new railroad bridge was thrown several inches out of line by the pressure. Beautiful spring is having a very hard struggle to reach here this season and the lap of winter clings closer than a brother and some of our farmers are getting somewhat discouraged about tbe prospect for seeding. Jacob Smith and Wm Willmart are tbe first to start their drills.

The week begins not un Hore wheal planted hereabouts. Latil week some work was douo littiuwr the iields for seeding, though the cool nights and wiiter from melting snuwia permitted but limited operations. The water in rapidly settling into the depressions, which are numerous and full on almost every iield. Stock comes out of tbe winter looking only moderately well. Feed ieeuten up unusually close. Many farmers were oompelled by tbe length of winter and shortage of fodder to draw straw during tbe latter pari of the winter several miles to bring their stock through to spriog. Tbe transportation of feed in these cases has been difficult and labori ous. Hay and straw stacks have for the most |.Brt been covered to tbe top by the unprecedented snow drifts. There is but little wheat in thiB neigh borhood in excess of the requirements for seeding purposes. Congregational services will be re sumed Sunday at tbe usual hour, 3 p. m., Kev.

And yet thousands ot women are so afflioted. In spite of all tbey can do tbis continues to grow worse, or at least grow no better. Tooth-brashes and breath perfume seem of no avail. The reason of their failure ie, is the majority of oases at least, they do not know the oause of tbeir trouble. Perhaps the most frequent oause of unpleasant breath is catarrh. The inflamation of the mucous membrane of mouth and throat discolors the teeth, coats the tongue, causes the lips to become harsh and sore, and imparts a more or less dis agreeable odor to the Lreath. Such a condition must be an extreme annoyance to the women whose instincts are natur ally dainty and she would do anything ID her to ov,yme%r,vntk iv To all such women, the word that Pe ru-na will abolutely cure catarrh, will therefore be good news. Pe ru-na, by removing the catarrh, sweetens tbe breath and causes healthy secretions to take tbe place of the irritating ones which have been tbe cause of so much discomfort. Tbe teeth are easily cleaned and the effects of a brisk brusbing re main. The tongue resumes its natural color and tbe unhealthy coaticg disap pears Catarrh ot tbe stomach also iB often tbe oause of foul breath. Pe-ru na cures catarrh wherever located. A book of 64 instructively illustrated pages on catarrh, of which Dr. Hartman is tbe author, will be sent free to any address for a short time by The Pe-ru-na Drug Manufacturing Company, Col umbus, Ohio.

It firat appeared in the north and wben in the vicinity of the Jones tree claim raised and lower itself, stopped and swung around and after being in the vioinity for some time disappeared to the south in the darkness. At one time it was eo close to him that be could here tbe working of the machinery—or rather humming which be took to be tbe operation of machine. Some of tbe time it carried colored lights, then again it was entirely without lights. There was no humbug about this mysterious visitor, he is said to assert, and be iB a sober, perfectly reliable witness. It was seen in tbe evening between tbe hours of 9 and 10 o'clock and was no creature of his fancy, no star.

The test of acetylene gas for illuminat ing purposes at A. Kline'e store is at tracting considerable attention from those interested in cheap lights. Tbe gas is generated at a small coat and gives a light that makes tbe electric' lights look red in comparison. Agent Doughty oaya acetylene gas gives more light, throws out less heat, consumes less oxygen and can be produced at muob less expense than other illuminating gases. Two-foot burners will well light a large room and an ordinary room is lighted sufficiently by a half foot burner There iB no possible danger in tbe use of thia gas either. Thia moat brilliant light is pro duced from carbide and water pounds of lime and od}4 pounds of coal dust of any kind melted by electricity will make 100 pounds ot calcium oarbide. One pound of oarbide will make 5% feet of gas. A half foot burner will give aa much light aa thrt) five-foot burners with ordinary city gas. At the present price of carbide tbe light oosts much less than oity gas, electricity or even kero sene oil for tbe same amount of light. Edward M. Chase, Friday and Saturday, April 23-24.
