A POOR. CRUTCH.
Experience is a dear teacher, as those who pin their
faith to Mercury find out sooner or later. This power
ful poison combined with Potash, is the treatment gen
erally prescribed for Contagious Blood Poison, but failure
and disappointment is the invariable result. These min
erals drive in the sores and eruptions, and apparently the
disease is gone ana me patient oeiieves tne cure perma
nent, but soon learns better when the old symptoms
return almost as soon as the treatment is left off. You
must either keep the system saturated with mercury or endure the tortures
of sore mouth, ulcerated throat and the mortification that one naturally
feels when the body is covered with disgusting sores, rashes, copper-colored
splotches and other aggravating symptoms of this vile disease.
Mercury and Potash are poor crutches, and their use eventually breaks
down the constitution, ruins the digestion and cause the bones to decay.

This morning the public school
savings bank system being promoted
by Supt. Smith of the public schools
had its first trial and everything
points to its future success. The first
thing the teachers did this morn
ing was to take the small deposits
made by their pupils and give them
credit for fhe amount deposited, llv
this means it is hoped to inculcate
a more general spirit cf saving to de
velop habits of thrift and to discour
age the wasteful expenditure of mon
ey. 'Inrough this manner it will also
give cnuuren some idea or the ordin
ary business principles and banking
methods. Kach pupil can deposit any
amount ranging from 1 cent up. This
money is given to the teacher and she
gives the pupil credit by giving an
equivalent number of penny stamps,
which the pupil will paste in his stamp
folder and retain as a receipt for the
money paid in. When the child has
50 stamps in his folder, he is entitled
to a regular pass book, furnished free
of charge by the bank, and then he
becomes a regular depositor.
Fire in the babbitt metal room of
the Barnard & Leas Manufacturing
company Wednesday evening about
9:;i0 threatened serious damage to the
plant, which was averted largely
through efficient service of the fire
laddies of the Central station. The
building in which the lire originated
is a frame structure, and it is thought
that a spark from a passing engine
might have been responsible for the
flame. The blaze was first noticed
near the floor while some of the men
were at work wheeling out castings.
The sides of the building were badly
scorched, but this constitutes the prin
cipal damage. The services of the fire
men were appreciated by the company
to such an extent that a check for $25
was sent to Chief Hawk yesterday
with the request that the amount be
applied to the fireman's relief fund.
