Sunbury, Ohio, December 21 Jos
eph Walker, forty-one, a well
known farmer, who HveB near Sun

the now homo which ho bus just built
on his farm.
Mr. Walker has Just returned from
a pleasure trip through the West and
Northwest, taken while his now
house was being built. Now that ho
Is ready to settle down to cultivating
his farm, ho wants a wife.
Mr. Walker Is forty-ono jears old,
Is six feet In height, weight 1G0 lbs.,
Is of slender stature, and has sandy
hair and mustache. Ho has been a
'farmer all his life.
"I have never been married, but
slnglo life on the farm Is a little
different from bachelor llfo in the
city," said Mr. Walker, today. "I am
prepared to give my wife all the com
forts of life. I'm not so particular
about the requirements of beauty, but
I would want her up-to-dato In do
"But she wouldn"t have to milk
cows'" ho continued. "Nor would sho

All answers should bo mailed to
Joseph Walker, route three, Sunbury,
Delaware county, Ohio.
Mr. Walker said Tuesday that he
would make his selection as quickly
as ho could. ,
"In selecting a wife, my only con
ditions will be. First That the ap
plicant be between 25 and 35 years
old; second That sho Is domestic;
third That oho i3 frugal.
She must havo some monoy to help
start housekeeping. I am not doing
this as a business proposition, but all
applicants should mako their finan
cial condition known so that I may
have some idea of their tendency to
ward frugality and economy."

Butler, Dec. 21 A peculiar law suit
has been filed in the court of 'Squire
Stauton, which involves tho entire
villago of Nowvillo. A year ago, the
villages held a union Sunday school,
composed of Methodists, Presbyter
ians and others. A few weeks ago a
disagreement arose between tho sects
in tho school, and a dissolution was
the result. Tho treasurer ot the un
ion Sunday school, John Taylor, has
$17 of tho combined funds, and he
does not know to which section of the
split to turn it ovor. The Presbyter
ians claim It because they had the
majority of tho union school and tho
Methodists want it because it was
collected in their church. A Jury of
12 men will decido tho matter befoie
'Squlro Staunton Thursday.
Sufferers who say they havo tried
everything without benefit aro tho
people we aro looking for. Wo want
them to know from glnd experience
that Ely's Cream Balm will conquer
Cold in the Head, Hay Fover, and ob
stinate forms of Nasal Catarrh. This
remedy acts directly on tho Inflamed,

soothing and healing. Ono trial will
convlnco you of Its healing power.
