The Western Rural has the follow ing (sensible remarks In relation to the prevalence of lnfiuenaa: 111 our opinion the newspapers are oenurable for the sensational reports of valence and fatality of So at ilie pre what they are pleased to call an epidemic. Imagi nation plays a conspicuous part IU disease and so long as the newspapers and doctors ail everything intlneiiza many people will he frightened into sickness far as we have observed there is nothing very peculiar iibout the prevailing sickness. The winter has been of sueh a character that ex cept by the exercise of the utmost care, people Would catch colds. Houses with furnaces in ihem, have been so warm that people frequently slept without bed clothing, on+y to wake up toward morning chillvd. People have been careless about tak ing care of themselves, and have sickened and died. The conditions have been most favorable for pneu monia. Liver diseases have been common. Rheumatism has beeu prevalent, and, of course, people have been sneezing. Those who have taken proper care of themselves and guarded against plain dangers, unless the system was weak to begin with, have largely escaped trouble. To read the daily papers one would get the idea that we were all dying. The death rate is somewhat higher than usual it is true. It would be strange it it were not with such a winter as we have had. But let every (Hie remain calm lie careful not to deliberately expose himself to such conditions as favor disease eat nourishing and easily digested foods and maintain good sanitary surroundings. As far as our city is concerned there is a greater amount of sickness here this winter than there has been for many years but the present time nearly all of those suffering from sickness are doing well A Scrap of Paper Saves Her Life. It was just an ordinary scrap of wrapping paper, but it saved her life. She was in the last stages of consump tion, told by physicians that she was incurable and could live only a short time, she weighed less than seventy pounds. On a piece of wrapping paper she read of Dr. King's New Discovery, an i got a sample bottle it helped her, she bought a large bottle, it helped her more, bought an other and grew better fast, continued ts use and is now strong, healthy, rosy, plump, weighing 140 pounds.

Our merchants and business meu might gain valuable information in regard to advertising by consulting Judge Husevold, ex-postmaster of the town of Cyrus. The Judge poses as a claim agent and expounder of the indemnity laud business, aud has succeeded in accumulating more or less wealth in this lin^j of business by successfully working the deadhead advertising racket. Tills is the way the learned Judge does it: He writes to the registers of our local laud offices asking certain questions in relation indemnity lands, which are duly answered by those officers. Then the Judge sends a copy of these letters from the land office registers to some local newspaper, with a puff for him self, as claim agent and indemnity laud expounder, with a request that they be published for the benefit of those interested, "one of whom he is which." Wishing to do a kindness to the public the editors insert the ad vertisment for the Judge. Then the Judge writes to Gov. Merriam and asks liiin a question,and out of polite ness the governor auswers it. This answer, with remarks by the Judge, are sent to the newspapers so that the community may know that claim agent and indemnity land expounder Husevold is in correspondence with Gov. Merriam. Then claim agent and Indemnity land expounder Huse vold writes Congressman Lind and asks him a question. Of course our kind-hearted congiessman replies and this reply, with oomments by the claim agent and indemnity land ex pounder Husevold, is sent to the newspaper editor, and in due time appears.in prlut so the fact becomes known that claim ag^[it and indem nity land expounder Husevold has received a letter from Congressman Lind. Now you understand claim agent and indemnity land expouuder Huse vold's scheme for deadhead advertis ing. The TRIBUNE, before it "tum bled to the racket," gave claim agent and indemnity land expounder Huse vold a small amount of deadhead ad vertising, by publishing a letter from the late Benson land office register with appropriate remarks by claim I agent and indemnity laud expounder Husevold. Then clam agent, and in demnity land expounder Husevold used the columns of the deceased Haucock Olive Branch, the Glenwood and other papers, and at the present time claim agent aud indemnity land expounder Husevold is using the columns of our good natured Morris contemporary as a medium of dead head advertising. Our merchants should study claim agent and indem uity land expounder Husevold'sdead head scheme for advertising. •I Stoddart & Co., Patent Attorneys, 015 7th St., Washington, D. C., Opp U. S.

EXCELSIOH, Jan. 25.—We liave just closed a four days session of the State Horticultural Society, held in this sub urban city, 18 miles out from Minneapo lis. The town is nestled among the bays and forests of Minnetonka Lake, that is so famous and popular as a watering place in the .summer season. The immediate country all around thcao waters is the best probably in the state for fruit plants, especially grapes, if indeed this distinction can justly be made. What will grow anywhere in Minnesota will grow here to marked success. The resi dents are a select class, intelligent, hos pitable and evidently lovers of the beau tiful and asthetic. They largely at tended our sessions, and took a lively interest in all there was said and done. Judging from reports, horticulture is slowly yet surely gaining in every part »f the State. What the Society abso lutely needs is more means to project its beneticient work by missionary effort and otherwise. It receives annually from the State but $1,000. Last year the Agricultural Socioty got an appropria tion of $4,000 and yet we all know that forestry and vegetables, and fruits are just as important as stock and grain. The two societies should be treated alike as to appropriations. We unan imously passed resolutions, memoria lizing Congress to nationalize forestry and classify it with agricultural and waterways improvements and that a forestry commission bo appointed and salaried, charged with the responsibility of arresting tree vandalism, and raising forests on the governmental waste lands in every part of the country. The papers read and addresses were all of practical import. The talk by Prof. McLain, Sip't. of the Experi ment Station at St. Anthony Park, on the subject of bee cul ture, was indeed very valuable. It is to be hoped that he will yet visit other localities, and repeat his admirable address, for it will unquesj tionably evoke an. interest in this lucra tive industry. J. O. BAKUMT. DONNELLY. The days are g« tting longer. A great number of tubular wells have been put -down in and around our town this fal 1 aud winter, and in every instance th ey have given entire satisfaction. We are pleases I to notice that the "grip" appears to be subsiding in our town, and those who have been suffering thererro ni, have either re covered or are ou a fair way to do so What's the m.att«T with having the World's Fair at Donnelly? Will some one ple u?e uiterview Senator Washburn on he subject? The singing class met last Thurs. day evening at-d it was a "corker." Prof. John Nils on was there in full bloom. If you merely think you have the grip, you haven't got it. If you know you have It, there is a possi bility that you have something simi lar to it. A. M. Dabry was in town last Sat urday on business. Hans. Larson was a visitor at Mor ris last Saturday. Mr. aud Mrs. A. G. Parsons, of Eldorado, wore iu town last Satur day. Drop quinine pill in the slot and test your grip.

John Heyv rood was fool to Henry VIII, having been introduced to the king by Sir Thomafi More. Mary Tudor had a great regard for Hey wood, who indulged in much audacious talk. Bold as were his sayings, few of them appear witty. A landlord asked him: "How do you like rny befjr? Is it not well hopped?" "So well," replied Heywood, "that had it hopped a little further it would have hopped into water.5' Dr. Doran, in his "History of Court Fool," gives several speexmer i's of Heywood's rhymed epi grams. One of them is perhaps worth transcribing: 'Where .m I least, husband?" Quoth he, "In the waist Which o ameth of this, thou art vengeable strait laced. Where im I biggest, wife?" "In the waist, too," quoth she "For aJ*t is waste in you, as far as I can see." —Cornhill Magazine. A Shrewd Move. A.—You see that line house? The man who owns it made all his money as a cab driver.

But the best and most frequent speci mens of an eccentric nation hail from the land of John Bull. Among them is mentioned Mr. Cecil S. (The Figaro wari ly suppresses the surname), who for many years made Paris ring with sto ries of his wild doings. Finally gout attacked him, and he was doomed to perpetual confinement at home. The ballet having always been specially pat ronized by him, Mr. S. started a ballet within his own four walls, where he kept an entire stage with all that be longs to it, including costumes of every possible variety. Five or six spectators were invited to the choreographio spec tacles, the artists in which were paid with more than princely liberality. Al though Mr. S. could never set a foot out side liis house, ho always retained his ten horses and four carriages, which were regularly driven about in tho Bois and on the boulevards, somewhat like the empty carriages seen behind a hearse. —New York Sun.

Dr. Lewentaner, of Constantinople, writing in Tho Bulletin General do The rapeutique, No. 532, 1889, speaks very en couragingly of tho success attending an antiseptic method of treating this disease, which ho tried in several cases. Tho ad vantages of this method of treatment are Hummed up by Tho Medical Record as follows: 1. All tho children treated in this way recovered, although the ordi nary mortality of tlr: disease is 40 per cent. 2. The duration of the disease was decidedly shortened, tho period elapsing from the commencement of the eruption to the falling off of tho crusts being twelve or thirteen days. 3. The diseaso ran its entire course almost without fever. 4. The danger to those around the patient is greatly lessened. In Dr. Lewentaner's cases there were other chil dren exposed, but, notwithstanding that they were not vaccinated, they did not contract the disease. 5. Tho simplicity of the method, as compared with the treatment by baths and cold applications, has much to recommend it. 0. Pathet ically, also, the antiseptic method of treatment offers great advantages, since it prevents absolutely all pitting. Dlclceiitt' Letter to His Song. Here is a letter from Dickons, ad dressed to his younger sons on their leaving home, one for Cambridge, the other for Australia, in which the father's heart and the deeper side of his nature reveal themselves: "You will remember," he says to both, "that you have never at home been wearied about religious observances or mere formalities. You will, therefore, understand the better that I now most solemnly impress upon you the truth and beauty of the Christian religion as it comes from Ciirist himself, and the impossibility of your going far wrong if you humbly, but heartily, respect it. Similarly I impress upon you the habit of saying a Christian prayer night and morning. These things have stood by mo through my life, and remember that I tried to render the New Testa ment intelligible to you and lovable to you when you were a mere baby. And so God bless you.

A Boston lawyer, returned from a trip in Maine, tells of a curious phenomenon existing at the Livermore falls, in that state. At the foot of one of the dams the descending water seems to be driven back with so much force that half way up the column of water there is an ever moving line of water like a crease in a piece of cloth. This has an effect upon the surrounding atmosphere that is al most incredibly great. The phenomenon is not observable at all times, but when the "wave" is visible on the falling water, objects suspended in the air at some distance from the falls are ob served to vibrate perceptibly in a regular movement. The vibration, while per ceptible at the time when the "wave" can be seen, seems to stop almost in stantly after the "wave" disappears, and it seems almost certain that the latter causes the former.—Boston Advertiser. 848 19 :2,622 51 .",7,753 72 r.832 15 Due from bank* Hanking liou^e Other real estate Furniture and Fixtures Current Expenses Check." and cash items Legal tenders and bank notes.
