To the pure all thiags are pure, but they'd better boil the waterjust the same. Sel Wells, Ben ?Run's leading farmer and stock raiser, is in the city today. The quality of mercy is not strained. Neither is the boarding house coffee. Miss Nettie Nuzum, of Marietta, is the guest of relatives out in the country from here. Homer Arnold, of Marshall county, is a social and business visit or in our city this week. Women are like neutral politic ians ? they are always holding up for jheir best tellow.

It is better to be a dog and bay the moon than to call your wife down to unlock the door at 3 a. m.

Campbell, of New: Cumberland, Hatcock county, was a distinguished visitor in our citys yesterday. He was accompanied by D. W. Keffer, of Wheeling. We have our opinion. of the man who palms off his discarded shirt studs on his wife for her , pretty new spring waist, while he goes and buys a new set for a La?t\year's shirt. "Ah," said the tipler, "I'd sell out heaven for something warm to quench this burning thirst within." Aud yet he never owned a foot of ground there. Some men are so inconsistent The poet wrote that it made his heart leap up to behold a rainbow in the sky. He probably never had the pleasaut sensation that comes when a fellow calls you up by tele phone and say s he has a check for you. Something is always happening to shock our nerves. Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett, author of the beautiful story of "Little Lord Fauntleroy," has instituted divorce proceedings against her husband. These people, of sentiment, though, are always getting into trouble. T. N. Larsen, of the Producers Real Estate company, of Pittsburg, is in the city on business. Mr. Larsen made this city his head quarters during last summer and it is probable that he will do likewise this season. . Friday is All Fools day. Who will be the new city police man? Circuit court convenes April the 1 2th. The beach is in a terrible condi tion. The flood is very hard on lazy people. Much is expected of the new ?city officials.

The council should go slow in appointing new officers and select the best men. Who will be the new city super intendent of water works. Let him be a good?man. Frank Algo was up the river vesterday repairing the lines of the Bell Telephone company. The Western Union lines are in working order again and messages can be handled from the depot.

The street commissioner in wash ing the mud from Water street as the river fell did a meritous deed, and saved the town considerable money. The churches were very slimly attended Sunday. So many had to look after their homes and other property they could not attend church. Miss Meta West is rapidly re covering from an attack of fever: She is so much improved as to be able to walk about the house and lawn. Geo. E.

The new mayor and the defeated mayor, Lawrence and Kennedy, have been out arm in arm collect ing in money for the flood suffer ers. It is pleasant to see these gentlemen dwelling together in unity. Olin Hickok is disbursing the funds and all who need help should apply to him. Rev.'E. Edwards, pastor of the English Baptist church at Miners ville, Pa., when suffering with rheumatistr, was advised to try Chamberlain's Pain Balm. He says. "A few applications of this lini ment proved of great service to me. It subdued the inflammation and re lieved the pain. Snould any suf ferer profit by giving Pain Balm a trial it will please me." For sale by C. W. Grier. m m m Myertt-lfnblmrd. Andrew Myers and Lina Hub bard were quietly married a few evenings ego at the home of a friend. Rev. Bowden officiated. fery Generous. The local lodge of B. P. O. E. made up a purse of $150, which was distributed to those who were impoverished by the flood. Several families of very poor people lost al most all their belongings, and in some instances their humbles homes as well. It was very kind of the Elks and other fraternal or ganizations; in fact everybody who can should lend assistance. I PROPOSED TRAMPS' FARM. Senator Parry's Plan F?r Disciplining New York City'n Vagrants. Tho farm -colony bill introduced in the senate of New York stato recently by Mr. Pavey provides tlip.t New York city shall appropriate ? 1^3,000 for the establishment of an institution to bo known as the. t'arin Colony For Va I grants, governed by a board of tivo mem bers, appointed by tho mayor, with a superintendent in immediate charge. This board may<estal>lish fho colony any - ?T.vhere in the state that it deems mosr desirable. The colony will consist of buildings and grounds, equipped with such me chanical and other assistance as shall make effective the .labor of the. inmates. TJa?se inmates are limited to ehat class of male persons wJbo may be convicted in the courts of New York citj of va grancy or habituai drunkenness, but who are not insane or ment&lly or physically incapable .of being benefited by instruction in agriculture, horticuj *ure and handicrafts. Magistrates in New York will bave power *to commit misdemeanants of thu olass bfctweeu the ages or 16 and 3d foj an indeterminate term, but the board may noc retain a person ?o sent for a longer time than three years. It may parole the prisoner when there is a rea soiiable probability that he has reform #d. but until the expiration of the time vea?rs he will be in the legal custody and under t&ie control of the board. If he violates his parole or is about to; ?apse into vagrancy or drunkenness, the board inay issue a warrant for his arrest oud return hia: to the farm colony. Everf iumaae. in the discretion of the superintendent, shall receive com peuratiou for his work from the earn ings of the colony. ? New York World Only a efiort time ago a larmer grave ly told me that he believed a farmer would starve to death on 40 acres of land. And lie meant what he said. He had 80 acres of good land and accord ing to his own statement the average yield of his crops was: Wheat, 12 bush els to the acre; corn, 30; oats, 25; hay, three-fourths of a ton. A mile distant from him lives a farmer whose land is almost an exact counterpart of his, and his crops average: Wheat, 30 bushels to j the acre; corn, 65 ; oats, oO; hay 2 tons. It is not the quantity of land that a man farms that counts, but the quality of his farming. The fact that a man can grow six tons of first class timothy hay on one acre shows the possibilities of an acre that is thoroughly tilled. Nine tenths of the land that is sown to wheat is not more than half prepared for the seed simply because the farmer believe9 in acres rather than tillage. ? Fred Grundy in Farmers' Institute Bulletin HOW TO FIND OUT. "Fill a bottle or common glass with urine and let it stand twenty four hours; a sediment or settling indicates an unhealthy condition of the kidneys. When urine stains linen it is positive evidence of kid ney trouble. Too frequent desire to urinate or pain in the back, is also convincing proof that the kidneys and bladder are out of order. WHAT TO DO. There is comfort in the knowledge so often expressed. that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root, the great kidney rem edy, fulfills every wish in relieving pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part of the urin ary passages. It corrects inability to hold urine and scalding pain In passing it, or bad effects following use of liquor, wine or beer, and over comes that unpleasant necessity of being compelled to get up many times during the night to urinate. The mild and the extraordinary effect of Swamp Root is soon real ized. It stands the higher for its wonderful cures of the most dis tressing cases. If you need a medi cine you shottld have the best.

John T. Sullivan'* Face Badly Torn In JfrV tempting to Spellbind Pongo. John T. Sullivan, the leading come dian in 44 A Bachelor's Honeymoon," wears several scars on his face as the result of a recent attempt to subjugate a vicious baboon. , Sullivan is very fond of all animals, especially monkeys, owns two or three specimens of the simian tribe and claims to possess the power of hypnotism over the monkey family generally. He learn ed that at the Chicago zoo, where theio was a -baboon, Pongo by name, that had a record for ferocity, and Sullivan straightway asked permission to try his hypnotic powers on it. A few mornings ago Sullivan present ed himself before Pongo' k cago and be gan tc crook his fingers and make eyes at the brute. Pongo stood the test with out "winking an eye. The actor turned a moment, when Pongo made a vicious dl?p at his (ace, tearing a large piece of skin off Sullivan's forehead and a hand ful of i:air. Tho comedian stepped -back, but was caught rfrwice again before he was out of readh, and several large pieces/of court plaster were necessary to put Mr. Sullivan's face in shapo for acting. ?

Underwood, a young attor ney of this place, claims that he has "been damaged to the extent of $10,000, by the articles which have appeared in the Star from time to time and entitled "A History" by "XXX Chief Chronicler." The Star don't believe that Mr. 1 Underwood is that badly dam aged; in fact, it doubts it very much whether he is hurt at all, but of course it is his privilege to look at it to suit hfmself. Whether the author has referred to Mr. Underwood in his history is something which we do not know as he has not taken us in his confi dence to that extent. Mr. Under wood first demanded the name of the correspondent which we of course refused to give as we do not reveal the name of any of our cor respondents. After that there was nothing to do bat sue the editors and proprietors of the Star which he did last week. It this suit comes off at all it will not be till the Au gust trrm and then the Star will be there to defend itself. ? Star.
