Tin' summer mi far has lieen
somewhat remarkable in the mat

terminate in in yet to be learned
but it is to be hoped not into a
sickly season aa tome of our
prophets seem to think. However,
we hould not lie off our guard in
the matter: each individual Bhould
take every precaution and be pre
pared. It in a matter that aiieet
every one and h a plain duty
that does not need to be told of. If
you will take noine medicine before
you get down and try to assist na
ture a little to keep well; then again
keep the premise clean. Cue
lime; burn up trath and Bave the
cost of your trouble in doctor's
bills, often u hundredfold. Also

it is no use for eople to be bo in
different to their health and then
expect doctors and friends to pull
them through a spell of sickness.

bons said "If I have one piece of
advice to give a public man more
than another it is, be frank with the
reporter. It has len my privilege
and pleasure to come in contact
with ami to know a great number
of reporters. I have steadfastly
adopted a lsdicy of absolute frank
ness with them, and I have yet to
have a confidence betrayed. They
have never proved themselves un
worthy of the estimate I placed on
iheln a- gentlemen. It l theitlb-
Hc man who conceals, whose very
act of concealment is perceived by
the reporters for in the very nature
nf their business they must he quick
to perceive, it is this very conceal
ment which induces the reporter to
further condui t his investigation!
and often to gel wrong what, had
he been in the confidences of the
man whose manner provoked in
