A certain travelling man has been

whiskey until at present he is a most fit
subject for Dr.Keeley's cure. Overcoat,
watch and even shoes have all been
pawned to satisfy bis terrible thirst and
in delirium he is the helpless victim
of the wiles of others. Upon coming to
his senses he will be seized by bitter re

shame will strike at his more manly
feelings. Then the torture is terrible

A serious joke is related on three
young men, of Bernadotte. They star
ted one day last week to massacre a
Durham animal of the masculine gen
der. Two long ropes were fastened to
the vicious animal to which on each side
were attached two of the party. The
third was stationed with a shot gun,
about ten feet to the front. The gun
was loaded with a heavy charge of
powder and buckshot and was instantly
discharged in the direction of Mr.
Durham, it failed to reach the target,
and,instead, scattered itself over one of
the young men about ten feet to one
side. And he, whose maiden name is
Emil "Johnson, is nursing a very sore
leg, while the animal is in the best of
spirits.—St. Peter Herald.
