Patent Medicines of all Kinds. The fever has reached Vanclcave. Rev. L. N. Brock, of Scranton was here Tuesday with Dr. Ii. D. Murray. Dr. E. A. I'ortls reports eight cases of fever at Vanuleave. Surgeon R. D. Murray took a needed rest in our town this week. The regular meeting of the Mayor and Hoard of Aldermen will bo held next Tuesday. . Fish I nor is excellent and large auan titles uf the tiny tribe are being caught uuiiy. It Is reported that there is two cases of fever in the family uf Mr. Geo. Mar tin at Unrkley. Our town Is in a perfectly healthy condition. Tbe fever is a thing of the past as far as uur town is concerned. It Is now one month since tbe last case of fever appeared and it Is safe to say our town has seen all it will this year. Our town folks are proud of the One record Dr. E. It. Uragg is making In Scranton. lie has attended about one liUDdrerl cases, thirty-eight uf which have been discharged as well. The local board are still at work tracing the infection, and have some very Interesting data compiled, which trace the fever bacK into June, and possibly earlier. 'And traces in every case directly to one of our large neigh bors, one case even being traced to Guatemala about the last of May. The party's brother, who came with liliu, bad the fever before leaving Guatemala, and he having it Imme diately on his arrival. SENSIBLE TALK. Nutches Democrat. In discussing the newspaper busi ness the Montgomery (Ala.) Adverti ser expresses tho following very sen sible opinion: ''Southern newspapers have as a rule been run too much us public property and nob enough as business enterprises. A newspaper's space Is its stock iu trade, and the public should be educated Into not expecting the proprietors to give it away to everybody and everything. When the truth is more fully realized and acted upon there will be more newspaper successes. The public, in days gone by, has made newspapers and newspaper men a sort of by-word for poverty, but newspapers are learn ing to correct this Impression. The public Is largely to blame for the esti mate It has too frequently formed by outright begging of all sorts of favors from publishing enterprises in their reach and bygetting their cheek re warded. People should be educated out of this habit. As fast as newspa per men teach their neighbors that newspaper space costs money and la bor to produce and has a market value, just that fast will the public respect the undertakings at their doors us a business enterprise worthy of support. Then the average man will no more think of boldly begging for newspaper space for his individ ual benefit than be would think of go ing into a clothingstore and display ing the cheek to beg for a hat or a coat, or Into a grocery store and ask ing for a barrel of tlour or a side of meat. True enough a newspaper must not be run as a money-making machine, purely. That is calculated to exclude conscience, liberality and enterprise. Itut it should not carry the Inca to an extreme. It should be conducted so as to yield sufficient in come to enable It to pay its legitimate expenses, to pay its workers good wages and to leavo something for a profit to Its owners in other words, just like any oilier proper business en terprise." Brother I K. of the Democuat Stab who was reported as having yellow fever says that ho had only a "little cola" contracted by sleeping in a "too well ventilated room in the second story of his residence." lie is now up and at his work. God bless the old man and we rejoice that he Is himself again. We were anxious lest Yellow Jack should knock him out. Greenwood Commonwealth.

Mr. Albert E. Turner, one of the well-known book men of the United States, and tho representative of a mammoth publishing concern whose plant Is located at Rahwah, N. J., In an Interview a few days ago 6aid: "The one book -whose sales go on In creasing year by year, and which leads all other publications by hun dreds of thousands of copies, is tbe Bible. Where do they go? I give it up. You can go into hundreds of homes and never see the Holy Book, but nevertheless the demand never slack ens. Generally speaking, the busi ness Is in a flourishing slate, and tbe publishers can't turn them out fast enough. Right now there is no book enjoying a specially heavy run. 'The Heavenly Twins' and 'Trilby' were the last to score big hits with tbe reading public. The 'Twins' sold up to 700,000 copies, but to-day both it and 'Trilby' are a drug on the mar ket. People have stopped asking for them, and dealers could'nt sell them at any price. As to cheapness it would seem that the limit bad about been reached. Dealers are now selling standard works at 37 1-2 cents that not many years ago sold for $2.25. The department stores, by adding books to their war-es, have also been a con siderable factor ia the reduction of prices." The Redkey, lad., Times relates this pill story and Its results : "Deca tur had three fools. They entered a pill eatlog contest." The pills were of purgative variety. One idiot ate 16. Another donkey ate 13, and the other maniac ate 11. The Idiot Is dead. The donkey Is expected to die, and the other darn fool ought to die." It Is stated that Uon. W. J. Bryan has netted 1160,000 from his books, speeches and lectures since Hanna's man (W. McKinley) was Inaugurated President.
