A queer ease of superstition which
resulted in the loss of two lives is re
ported from Hungary. A peasant liv
ing in Nosztany died of heart disease
while attending market in Kurd. His
relatives started to take the body home,
but were forcibly prevented from car
rying the body through the village of
Iharos. whose inhabitants believed that
the passage of a strange corpse through
their town vould bring endless misfor
tune to it. The procession returned to
Kurd, and the next day it set out again,
this time with an escort of gendarmes.
When it reached Iharos it was met by
the whole population of the village,
armed with scythes, pitchforks, axes
and anything that could be used as a
weapon. The gendarmes were forced
to lire three volleys before they could
get through the place. Two of the vil
lagers were killed and many wounded.

Value of the Kangaroos Tail.
So important is the kangaroo's tail in
his rapid progress that experienced
hunters with guns are accustomed to
fire at the point where this appendage
Joins the body, when, the tail being dis
abled for its office of balancing, the
animal is as effectually stopped as if
hamstrung. Ilit elsewhere, except with
a rifle bullet or at point blank range,
the kangaroo Is pretty likely to get off.
One peculiarity of the kangaroo is
that, after being started up, he very
rarely swerves from his course, through
which peculiarity he is easily "potted"
by hunters, who conceal themselves
•while a man on horseback drives the
herd toward them.

A Good Name.
From personal experience I testify
that DeWitt's Little Early Risers are
unequalled as a liver pill. They are
rightly named because they give
strength and energy and do their
work with ease.—W. T. Easton,
Boerne, Tex. Thousand of people are
using these tiny little pills in prefer
ence to all others, because they are so
pleasant and effectual. They cure
biliousness, torpid livid, jaundice,
sick] headache, constipation, etc.
They do not purge and weaken, but
cleanse and strengthen. Sold by

Eugene V. Debs, the great socialist
leader and radical reformer lectured
last Monday evening to a fair sized
audieuce in the M. E. church. While
a few agreed with the thoughts of the
speaker, all admit that he handled his
subject 011 "Socialism" in an able and
comprehensive manner and with none
of the lire eating qualities usually at
tributed to him. His lecture was an
eloquent appeal for the common broth
erhood of man, believing that labor
should get a more equal share of the
products of her brain and brawn and
that the government should own and
control the greater part of the agen
cies of food, light and transportation

Next Thursday is Thanksgiving.
How many are going to be thankful
for even the small blessings they en
joy? Is life roseate or gloomy to you?
It is as you have willed it. When our
Pilgrim fathers assembled on that
first memorable Thanksgiving day,
and solemnly and earnestly returned
thanks to Almighty God for the
preservation of the few who yet re
mained, for the crops and boundless
liberty they enjoyed it was a solemn
and reverent day. It was not a time
of frivolous merry making or
exhibition of strength or clothes or
good time. Have we desecrated the
altar they established and set up in
the wilderness, by our rushing 20th
century gait? Our foot balls, our
dance, our light hearted, selfish feast
ing? Are you this year going to make
one over whom the pall of
despondence, poverty or bad luck has
fallen, glad by some act of unselfish
denial of your own pleasure to make
them happier? Try it. The world
will move smoother for the coming

Calls for Warmer Wearables
Remember we sell the Staley Wool Underwear,
the underwear that keeps you warm.
In the 50c fleeced underwear we think we give
you a heavier and closer knit garment than
you usually get for that price, double front
and back.
We have a nice ribbed cotton underwear in
white and salmon color at 50c
Fleeced lined for Boys' all sizes for 25c
Fur Coats from $12.50 to $50.00, all first-class
coats and guaranteed to give satisfaction.
Dr. N. P. Lauritzen and family
arrived from Exira Wednesday and
are now nicely settled in the Andrews
property on Church street, just north
of the Presbvterian church.
After nine years of successful prac
tice in Exira the doctor has been im
pelled by the demands made upon him
from the north part of the county to
enlarge his opportunities by moving
to the county seat. He has opened
his office in the rear of F. W. Smith &
Co.'s drug store. He has from time to
time gone to Chicago and other
schools and taken post graduate work
and specialized on the branches needed
most in his practice and may be
counted upon as being thoroughly
read and up-to-date upon all points.
Do You Need an Overcoat?
We show the best and swellest coats in the county
and can satisfy any of you.
In losing Dr. and Mrs. Lauritzen
from Exira the city loses two of her
most popular people and Audubon
gains for her society a family that
will soon hold a high place in their
affections and esteem. Tbey have a I
ways been actively to the l'ront. in all
progressive movements of their town,
and taken their share of the burdens
naturally coming to such movements.
As a member of the Thursday Club,
Assortment in suits is still good. If interested
come and take a look. Our H. S. & M. suits are
winners—they've got the style and wear of merchant
tailors' suits costing twice as much as we ask for them.
Try one on and be convinced and save yourself some
of your good money.
Yours Truly

the popular club of the town, Mrs.
Lauritzen was active in planning the
work outlined for this year and will
be found a capable and willing worker
along this or any line.
We heartily commend them to the
community believing and knowing
they are worthy people and will meet
the recognition due them.
San Drunkenness.
To become sun drunk is a conaiuon
into which any one may fall in the
tropics. Exposure to the sun's rays will
reduce a man to a condition almost ex
actly resembling drunkenness. He stag
gers about and is usually compelled to
lie down and "sleep it off." Sun drunk
enness is. sometimes accompanied by
nausea. Another curious fact in con
nection with life in the tropics, where
tlie sun risos at the same time all the
year round, is that if you do not get up
before sunrise you do not feel well all
day. You fe heavy, out of sorts and
liavo a tendency to sickness.
