Think to the Public.
For the third lime the ladies - of the
First Methodist church have successfully
conducted their annual fair and festiyal,
and with eraiifving results in every re
spect. While the members of this church
are very hurbly pleased with the outcome
they are fully aw&re that such successes
are made possible by the penerous pat
ronage anil unselfish co-operation of an
appreciative public, who recognize the
fact thet the splendid object for which
the ladies have so etroestly toiled is
worthy of such public recognition. The
Ladies' dewing society of the First Meth
odist church desire to extend their hearti
est thanks to the public in general for
their liberal and cheerful co operation in
helping tbem to achieve their splendid
success. They especially recognize the
help that was given them in advertise
ments, donations, etc., by tue business
men and the city press. They
also extend their warmest thanks
to all the men, women and chil
dren who took part in the work of the
fair, either presiding in the booths, pre
paring refreshments, waiting upon the
tables or helping in the entertainments,
all of whom we know did a great deal of
hard work. To Mrs Darrow and her
class, also Prof. Whittemore, of Daven
port, with those who assisted him, we
feel ourselves under lasting: obligations,
also to Mr. Morris Rosenfield for the
splendid silk flag dona'.ed to the church
through our fair. To all who in any way
assisted in making our festival a success,
we are sincerely grateful . By order of
Mrs. O. S. Cleveland.
President of the Sewing society of the
First Methodist church.

Joslix, May 12. The click of the
corn planter is again heard in the land .
We would remind the farmers that every
third click goes to the trust combines and
infant industries, that were infanta 20 or
30 years ago. But then, you know, once
an infant, always an infant.
The rain that we were praying for came
on Sunday morning last, which will have
a beneficial effect upon the growing crops.
The weather we are having is conaid
ered decidedly beautiful. Nevertheless
a steady, gentle rain for a few hours
would be very refreshing to vegetation.
The la grippe and other ailments which
were so prevalent a short time ago. seem
to have about totally disappeared with
the advent of spring and fine weather.

Harrison's western trip and Clarkson's
appointment as president of the republi

in mind this is the same Clarkson that the

ing list for the purpose of furnishing .its
subscribers wita a republican campaign
pep?r called the Democrat. The same

It will be remembered when the Mili
bi!l was brought forward in the bouse uf
representatives which ocly called for &
reduction of about 7 per cent that a free
trade yell went up from ocean to ocean
and from the gulf to the lakes Now
then it is reported that James G. Blaine's
next campaign cry is to be lower tariif
reciprocity. Does not this seem strange
when Mr. Blaine all through the last
campaign in almost every eastern city,
was siocing the praises of high protec
tion?. Did "Necessity Jeems" change of
heart come in the twinkling of an eye?

In the pursuit or tne gooa things of
this world we anticipate too much; we
eat out the heart and sweetness of world
ly pleasures by delightful forethought of
them. The results obtained from the uae
of Dr. Jones' Red Clover Tonic far exceed
all claims. It cures dyspepsia, and all
stomach, liver, kidney and bladder
troubles. It is a perfect tonic, appetizer,
blood purifier, a sure cure for ague and
malarial diseases. Price, 50 cents ;o
A Baal Balsam is Kemp's Balsam.
The dictionery says, "a balsam is a
thick, pure, aromatic substance flowing
from trees." Kemp's Balsam for the
throat and lungs is the only cough medi
cine that is a real balsam. Many thin,
watery cough remedies are called balsam's
bnt such are not. Look through a bottle
of Kemp's Balsam and notice what a pure,
thick preparation it is. If you cough
use Kemp's Balsam. At all druggists'.
