E. L. Miller, from near Sawyer, is
preparing to leave next week for Mc
Laughlin, S. D., where he has leased
nine quarters of ranching land. He
will raise cattle. Mr. Miller home
steaded in Ward county in 1901, and
there are many old time friends who
dislike to see him leave.
People who think they have venereal disease or sex complaints„
should always go to a reliable doctor or to a clinic.
Quacks, patent medicines and self-treatment are not only danger
ous but cost more money in the end. Advertising physicians, and
fake medical institutions will make a young man believe he has a
serious and dangerous ailment, in order to bleed him for fees. The
family doctor or government clinic can tell him the truth and save
him his money.
Many sufferers from venereal disease are innocent victims and it
is the duty of every community to see that provision is made for
their treatment and cure.
The Government insists that all patients at the Clinic be treated
with consideration and courtesy—veneral diseases are DISEASES,
Blood examinations are made, free of charge when necessary and
treatment must comply with the standards laid down by the highest
medical authorities, military and civilian.
The Clinic is located at Public Health Laboratory

GAVE NAME TO NEW ENGLAND
Result of Capt. Smith's Exploration
•f Shorts of "North Virginia" in
the Year 1614.
Capt. John Smith, famous for his
romantic career, particularly the Po
cahontas episode, Is generally asso
ciated with Virginia, but he was also
the first to discover the beauties of
the southwestern lialf of the Maine
coast and the first to draw a map of
it, an exchange recalls. In 1614 he ex
plored* the shores of what was then
known as North Virginia, but which
he called New England, a name that
has stuck, as have many otheris given
in "A Description of New England,"
printed in London in 101G, Smith
wrote "1 have seen at least forty sev
eral! habitations on the Sea Coast and
found about 25 excellent good har
bors. and more than 200 Isles.
From Penobscot to Sagadahock this
Coast is all .Mountainous and Isles of

sorts of good woodes foi* building
houses, boats, barks or shippes: with
an incredible abundance of most sorts
of fish, much fowle and sundry sorts^
of good fruites for man's use

NERVES THAT TIRE EASILY
Sense of Smell One That Is Quickly
Fatigued—Heat Nerves Practi
cally Never at Rest.
The most easily tired nerves In the
body are the nerves of smell. As you
pass a rose In the garden the quan
tity of perfume that gets lnto^.your
nostril must be many millions of bil
lion of times smaller than the tiniest
grain of sand. But rub the strongest
perfume on your upper lip, and in a
few second? you fail to notice it, the
nerve of smell is so quickly fatigued.
The heat nerves and cold nerves,
which are quite distinct from the
nerves of ordinary sensation, also give
over working very quickly. A bath
that seems quite hot when yon sret into
it very soon ceases to cause any par
ticular feeling of heat.
Nerves of bearing and sight c«:n go
throur'i an enormous amount of work.
For sixteen hours :i day they work
hard, and are still willing to do more.
The nerves of the heart are the most
untiring of all. From the first dawn
of life until the la*t gasp they work
without stopping for one instant.
Various Modes of Greeting.
Savages rarely osculate. The salu
tations of the Mongols, Malays. Poly
nesians, the Eskimos and Laplanders
consist chiefly of smelling each other
and rubbing noses while in Tibet, In
stead of greeting by an adhesive touch,
the mode of salutation consists of ex
tending the tongue, but this Is done
simply because the custom of the
country does not permit" of any phys
ical contact. North American Indians
do not kiss excepting In the presence
of death, when they profusely fondle
and kiss the feet of their beloved de
parted ones. The native Australian
and Fiji islanders salute with a hug
like a bear. The Celtic race is not
especially demonstrative and rarely
kiss In public unless It Is In greeting
after a long absence, then men very
rarely kiss each other and the women
are not over lavish with their mani
festations of devotion..
Margaret Fuller?! Friend*.
Went to see Hawthorne it was very
pleasant, the poplars whisper so sud
denly their pleasant tale and every
where the view is 'so peaceful. The
house within I like, all their things
are so expressive of themselves and
mix so gracefully with the old furni
ture. H. walked home with me we
stopped some time to look at the
moon. ... He expressed, as he
always does, many fine perceptions, 1
like to hear the lightest thing he says.
Waldo and I have good meetings,
though we stop at'all our old places.
But my expectations are moderate
now It is his beautiful presence that
I prize far more than our intercourse.
He has. been reading me his new
poems, and the other day he asked me
how I liked the "little subjective twin

London's Holy Well.
London's holy well may, after all,
still be In existence. John DIprose,
printer and historian of St. Clement's
Danes, investigated the many rival
claims put forward as to its site, In
cluding Lyons Inn, the old Dog tavern
in Holywell street, and part of the site
of the law courts, and found no evi
dence to support any of them.
He suggested that the holy well
might be Identical with the well cov
ered by the stone-built house In St.
Clement's churchyard looking like a
burial vault above ground.
Thlsi an inscription tells
erected in 1839 "to prevent people
using a pump that the inhabitants
had put up In 1.807 over a remarkable
well which is 121 feet deep, with 100
feet of water In it."
