As a rule I am opposed to proprietary
medicines. Still I value a good one,
especially when such is the source of
relief from pain. As a topical (exter

have ever used for neuralgia of any kind,
have conscientiously recommended it
to many persons. William Horne, M.

Shortly before 8 o'clock on Saturday
evening last, smoke was seen issuemg
from the stable in the rear of the old
Monarch Saloon, the property of Severo
Vigil. An alarm of fire was given and
the citizens immediately turned out
and went to work with a will, tearing
down adjoining fences, gettine out bug
giea and harness, and wetting down
the roofs of the houses where there
was any danger. They thus succeeded
in keeping the fire confined to the sta
ble, which was totally destroyed, burn
ing to death three horses, which were
unfortunately tied in the end of the
stable where the fire started, and de
stroying about eight tons of 'hay and
half a ton of grain. The horses were
owned bv Dionicio Duran and Tomas
Ortega, and the hay and grain by J. R.
Armijo. The total loss will amount to
about 600 and was uninsured.
A heavy rain had fallen during the
afternoon which wet everything in the
vicinity and was a great help towards
keeping the fire from spreading and
saved St. Johns from a destruction of
property which is fearful to contem
plate. In a recent letter to the manufact
urers Mr. W. F. Benjamin, editor of the
Spectator, Eushford, N. Y., says: "It
may be a pleasure to you to know the
high esteem in which Chamberlain's
medicines are held by the people of
yourown state, where they must be best
known. An aunt of mine, who resides
at Dexter, Iowa, was about to visit me
a few years since, and before leaving
home wrote me, asking if thev were
sold here, stating if they were not she
would brine a auantitv with her. as
she did not like to be without them."
The medicines referrd to are Chamber-
lam's Cough Bemedv, famous for its
cures of colds and croup; Chamberlain's
Pain Balm for rheumatism, lame back,
pains in the side and chest, and Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
remedy tor bowel complaint. These
medicines have been in constant use in
Iowa for almost a quarter of a century.
The people have learned that they are
articles of great worth and merit, and
unequaled by any other. The'' are for

The deceased was- about 32 years of

thinking it anything serious had made
arrangements to go out to the shearing

The Woman Suffragists.
A reception was given at Armory
Hall last Tuesday evening by the ladies
of St. Johns, to the delegates of the
Democratic Convention, and others m
sympathy with the cause of woman
suffrage. Mrs. Linda Scott presided t
and being assisted by Mrs. W. A, Ten-1
ney, Mrs. J. B. Patterson, Mrs. John
Patterson, Mrs. Ritchey and Misses
Maud, Stella and Lottie Sherwood, and
Mary L. Sherman. An interesting pro
gramme was successfully carried out.
The remarks of Miss Mary L. Sher
man were listened to with careful at
tention and heartily applauded. The
common sense view of the issue at
hand was explained in a way which
made those who were wavering decide
in favor of the justice of woman's
'claim to the privelege of the ballot.
Major Piatt assisted in making the
reception a success by a few appropri

The foiling little campaign story il
lustrates how the clever wife of a far
mer utilized two candidates :
"If it is not too eariy I would like to
tell you acampaig story." remarked
the chief of one of the bureaus of a
"One of the actors in it was very fre
quently spoken of as a possible candi
date before the Chicago Convention,
though he was by no means the most
prominent, and the other, by a pecu
liar combination of events, has been
spoken of in connection with the nom
ination as Governor of his State.
"The scene was .in a Western State,
though neither of- the gentlemen re
sides in that Statenow-
"Both were candidates for a small
county office, and both men, as they
are now, were hustlers for anything
they were after.
"Thej' were making a house-to-house
canvass, which was necessary at that
time, owing to tne sparse population,
and while they endeavored to work in
different sections they frequently found
themselves in the same neighborhood
at the same time.
"The occurrence. to which I refer to
was at a farm about a mile distant from
the village where both candidates were
to speak the following day. The can
didates kept their eyes pretty well on
each other during the early part of the
day, but during the afternoon they
started out to do missionary work at
the farmhouses. By a singular circum
stance they landed at the same farm,
though one did not know the other was
there until later on.
"The man first referred to, finding
that the owner of the farm was absent,
devoted himself to the wife, and, of
course, said all kinds of nice things to
her, making special inquiry after the
children, whether they had caught the
measels, which prevailed at the time,
etc. The lady seemed charmed with
the attention shown her, but said she
would have to be excused, as she had
to milk the cow. The candidate kind
ly offered to assist in that performance
saying that though he could not milk
he could keep the flies off the cow, or
at least hold her tail.
"wniie "engaged holding the cow's
tail he ventured to ask if his compet
itor for the office had been around yet.
'Oh, yes answered the wife, 'he is
here now. He is in the back barn and
id holding the calf, for this cow will
not give down her milk if the calf is in
sight.' " Republic.
DISEASES OP THE SKIN.
The intense itching and smarting inci
dent to eczema, tetter, salt-rhenm, and other
diseases of the skin is instantly allayed by
applying Chamberlain's Eye and Skin
Ointment. Many very bad cases have been
permanently cured by it. It is equally
efficient for itching piles and a favorite rem
edy for sore nipples; chapped hands, chil
blains, frost bites, and chronic sore eyes.
