FRIDAY, DEC. 21, 1917. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Subscription - $1.50 Per Year Entered as Second-class Mall Matter at the Postofflce in Edgerton. Wisconsin. CORRESPONDENCE FORT ATKINSON About 30 Louisiana farmers, headed by Dean W. R. Dodson -of the Louis iana College of Agriculture, visited this city one day last week, coming here from Chicago after attending the In ternational Live Stock Show. There seems to be much complaint all over town this year at the poor quality of the hard coal we are burn ing. Consumers paid the highest price ever charged and got a much lower grade. The heating power of the coal is fully 25 per cent lower than usual. What kind of coal was it? An appeal to the fuel administration might possi bly solve it. Saturday Ray Beach, a son of Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Beacn of this city, who has been teaching in the high school at Tomah, Wis., decided not to wait for the workings of the draft before get ting into the crusade against Kaiser ism and went to La Crosse where he successfully passed an examination for entrance into the quartermaster’s de partment of the army. He spent Sun day at his home here and left Monday noon for Jefferson barracks, near St. Louis, Mo. Alvin Downing is dead. This an nouncement early Tuesday morning carried keen sorrow to the citizens of Fort Atkinson and surrounding coun try. Mr. Downing seemed to be in his general good health and Monday even ing attended the home talent musical comedy at the Lyric theater. While the second act was on he was suddenly taken ill. He left his seat and walked to the back of the hall. Just before reaching the door he vas heard to say, “I’m awfully sick’’ and then collapsed. MILTON E. F. Davis Jr. and Don Bordon en listed in the Aero Division Signal Corps and Wednesday were ordered to San Antonio, Texas. Herbert Russell Maxson, eldest son of Mrs. Hannah Babcock Maxson, pass ed away Friday morning at the Rock county insane asylum. Brief funeral services were conducted in the County Home Saturday afternoon by Pastor Van Horn. P. M. Green expects to shake the snow off his feet and leave Tuesday for Sarasota, Fla., where no wintry blasts are singing requiem over shivering hu manity, but where balmy zephyrs waft “welcome” to the chilled pilgrims from the north. Rev. G. A. Zimmer and family were given a farewell party last Wednesday evening by the German congregation in their church parlors. Although the evening was a stormy one a goodly number were present. Refreshments were served and a social time enjoyed. Asa token of good will a purse of money was presented to the pastor and family. They leave this week for their new home at Renfrew, Rankin, On tario, Canada. STOUGHTON Andrew Bolstad, employed on the George Burthe farm east of the city, was arrested by United States Marshal William Tuton, charged with having given liquor to a soldier. John Wettleson, long employed at the Stoughton Wagon Works, died at his home on Church street late Monday afternoon. He has not been well for some time, never having recovered fully from prostration by heat which he suffered last summer, but has con tinued to work until recently. Clarence Rowe, hitherto second lieu tenant of the Ist Cos. of the 107th Mili tary Police at Waco, Texas, has re cently been promoted to first lieuten ant, being one of the 300 officers and non-commissioned officers at Camp MacArthur that were granted promo tions. Among these 300 was also Maurice Carr, son of Mrs. Lynne Carr, who became a second lieutenant. N. N. Anderson, residing two miles out on the Edgerton road, had his big 50-gallon gasoline tank containing 28 gallons of gasoline stolen from his farm yard Tuesday night. The thieves—for it must heve taken more than one to carry the heavy tank—had driven into the yard with an auto, Mr. Anderson discorering the wheel tracks the next day. The tank, which was painted red, was locked, but the thieves took it off the platform upon which it stood. Mr. Anderson had just had 30 gallons of “gas” put into the tank a few days before, and since then had used tw*o gallons, so that the thieves got away with 28 gallons. This is the first time that anything of the kind has happened in that neighborhood, and it is one of the boldest thefts we have heard of for some time. Sioo Reward 9100.

Phone 347 F23. Proof From Elkhorn. Elkhorn Citizens Speak Out Publicly. In Elkhorn we find that people are praising Doan's Kidney Pills as highly as here in Edgerton. Being so near by the statement of an Elkhorn resident is of particular interest. Edgerton peo ple should profit by the experience of Mrs. N. Squires of Elkhorn. She says: “I was greatly troubled by pains in my back. When I baked, swept or did any other kind of housework requiring stooping, it made the pains worse. At times my back was so bad I had to walk lame. I got a crick right in the small of my back when I stooped and I was in pretty bad shape. A relative had been cured of the same . trouble by Doan’s Kidney Pills, so I got some. They cured me, too, and made me feel better right away. Two boxes were all I needed and I haven’t had any kid ney trouble since.” Price 60c, at all dealers. Don’t sim ply ask for a kidney remedy—get Doan’s Kidney Pills —the same that Mrs. Squire shad. Foster-Milburn Cos. Mfgrs., Buffalo, N. Y. Hollow Pretense. How hollow is all our pretension to progress, when we have never devised a punishment for the human trip ham mer who always thinks it is neces sary to smite one on the shoulder in greeting, or the human vise who puts forth every ounce of his strength in shaking hands. Stomach Trouble and Constipation Those who are afflicted with stomach trouble and constipation should read the following: “I have never found anything so good for stomach trouble and constipation as Chamberlain’s Tab lets. I have used them off and on now for the past two years. They not only regulate the action of the bowels but stimulate the liver and keep one’s body in a healthy condition,” writes Mrs. Benjamin Hooper, Auburn, N. Y. To Win a Friend. To be a little more patient, a little more loving, a little more gentle and generous with the sullen, wayward friend, is practically the only way to win him. How to Prevent Croup In a child that is subject to attacks of croup, the first indication of the dis ease is hoarseness. Give Chamber lain’s Cough Remedy as soon as the child becomes hoarse and the attack may be warded off and all danger and anxiety avoided. Settled Out of Court. Muriel —“So Judge Msrryman pro posed to Asce last night!” Ethel — “Yes, and he made an awful break. AVhen she aske'd him for time to con sider his proposal, he gave her 60 days.”—Judge. Chamberlain’s Tablets Chamberlain’s Tablets are intended especially for stomach troubles, bilious ness and constipation, and have met with much success in the treatment of those diseases. People who have suf fered for years with stomach trouble and have been unable to obtain any permanent relief, have been complete ly cured by the use of these tablets. Chamberlain’s Tablets are also of great value for biliousness. Chronic consti pation may be permanently cured by taking Chamberlain’s Tablets and ob serving the plain printed directions with each bottle. For Priests' Clothing. The reason given by Josephus for the Jewish law which prohibited the wearing of clothing of linen and wool was that such garments were worn by the priests alone. —A most healthful, up-building med icine gently soothes the liver and bow els, helps digestion, sharpens the ap petite, brings refreshing sleep. Hol lister’s Rocky Mountain Tea, nature’s gift. Thoro but not injurious.—Dall man Drug Cos. Keep Mouth Closed. The mouth is the gateway to the body, for health or disease. It was de signed for speaking, eating and drink ing, but never for breathing, except in emergency. Acquire the habit of keeping the lips closed, shutting out dust and dirt which irritate and often carry the germs of disease. Most dis eases are taken in through the mouth. —lf your stomach’s wrong, have in digestion, don’t relish food, appetite gone, feel heavy, brain dull, bowels not regular, liver torpid, kidneys not act ing right, can’t sleep well, out of sorts generally —you need Hollister’s Rocky Mountain Tea. That’s all.—Dallman Drug Cos. [First publication Dec. 14, 1917]—13 Notice of Final Settlement and De termination of Inheritance Tax. COUNTY COURT, ROCK COUNTY, Wisconsin—ln Probate.
