Thinks It was Foul I'luy.
(leorge Freeland, a son-in-law of
the late A. D. Miller of Port Byron,
has been up at Port Byron looking
into the circumstances attendingMr.
Miller's death, and cannot quite sat
isfy himself that there was not some
sort of foul play. The age of Mr.
Miller was considerably greater than
that heretofore given, being between
8.j and S7 years. He had been a long
time resident of Port Byron, and had
no enemies. Formerly he was a hard
drinker. The evidence that he had
been drinking Saturday last was
given by Charles Hall, whose name
has heretofore been given as Corea
Sheehan. in the inquest proceedings,
and Hall testified only that Miller
took a glass of beer.

than half of the fatal illnesses from
November to May. A cold is the
first chapter in the history of every
case of consumption. A cold is the

diseases. A cold is the legitimate
parent of a large family of diseases,
such as bronchitis, pleurisy, pneu
monia and quinsy. To neglect a cold
is almost suicide. To fail to provide
against this well-nigh inevitable evil
is dangerous negligence, Pe-ru-na is
