Surton Farmers' Club.
Oak Hill, May 5, 1891.
Owing to the heavy rains only about one-
half the members of the Burton Farmers'
Club met today at the residence of Mr. and
and Mrs. Cramer, but we enjoyed ourselves
all the same.
Our vice-president, Mrs. Rose, called the
meeting to order and appointed a secretary
and reporter. Mr. Cramer spoke of the
different organizations: said we could not
live without being oreanlzed and the home
itself was an organization. Mrs. Moxley
said she felt like praising the ones who
started the Farmers' Club. C. R. Woodin
being asked sliould we eat like pigs and
horses or In a quiet way so as not to disturb
our next neighbor, replied that our neigh
bor should attend to his own dinner and not
be offended by what was going on around
him. Mr. Mason, speaking of corn, favored
the white dent as yielding most to the acre
and having small stales. Mr. Moxley read
an extract from the Free Press, recommend
ing a sod ground top dressed in winter as
being best for corn, plowing not more than
four inches deep. Mr. Rose thought we
should be more careful in selecting our seed
corn; said he put his In the oat bin where it
dried out thoroughly. He also said plow
shallow and then cultivate the ground after
every rain or once a week. Mrs. Moxley
led the ladies' subject, "How much should
the farmers' wives and daughters know
about agriculture?" This was followed by
Mrs. C. R. Woodin, each speaker giving a
list of duties to which the farmers' wives
and daughters are supposed to be familiar.
Subject for next meeting. "Do our or
chards pay; if not, why not, and what can
we do to make them pay?" Speakers, Ezra
Mason, E. W. Mason, E. B. Simpson.
Ladies subject, "How much help should
farmers expect from their wives and daugh
ters?" Speakers, Mrs. Rose, Mrs. D. S.
Cramer, Mr. E. B. Simpson.
Next meeting to be held at Ezra Mason's,
May 2d C. R. W.
George Babcock is home from Harper's
Hospital In Detroit and says his health is
very much Improved, which statement Is
verified by his appearance, as he Is looking
decidedly better. The school entertain
ment at the opera house Friday evening
last was quite well attended and the exercises
were decidedly Interesting. Our own talent
did remarkably well and were ably assisted
by Miss Minnie Warren, of Howell, the
child elocutionist, who is said to be one of
the best in the state, a fact generally admit
ted by all who hear her, and besides she has
won several prizes where the competition
was quite strong. Mat Wixom's great
show left here I nesday morning for Durand,
after having given two entertainments the
day before, the tent being crowded on both
occasions. The afternoon entertainment was
to accommodate the children, but in the
evening everybody went and all speak in
the highest terms of praise of eacli and
every act. All did well, but the trained
horses and dogs require especial praise and
comment. It requires about 50 men and 40
horses (by the way they are all nice ones)
to manage and transport this mammoth
aggregation, and everything being new it
makes a splendid turnout and a grand
parade. The Fremont Cemetery Associa
tion met on Saturday evening last and
elected Mrs. Siraonson, Philips andO'Hatra
as an executive committee and Messrs. Chas.
Warren, O. Olmstead, A. Baker, J. Banks,
E. Lyman, II. J. Kent and S. J. Gurney as
a lxard of trustees. The trustees and exec
utive committee meet this week and elect a
President, Vice President, Secretary and
treasurer, and also to lay out work and Im
provements to be accomplished during the
summer. This is a step in the right direc
tion and it is to be hoped that money will
Imj freely paid in and the above management
is sufficient assurance that it will be laid
out to a good advantage and where It is
most needed. S. J. Gurney Is anticipat
ing a trip east this summer, visiting his
birthplace, hoping it will be beneficial to his
health. If his health will permit he auticl
pates going about the first of the month.
Quito a number of our townsmen are attend
ing court at the county seat this week, some
being called there as Jurors, some as wit
nesses, some as parties Interested and I fear
others are there trying to make themselves
more or less popular by mingling with other
people's business (this Is awful natural for
some people) claiming to be aiding a com
panion, or securing the aims of Justice,
when In fact ttiey are preventing reasonable
settlements and defeating the alms of the
statutes of the State of Michigan and all its
moral and Just requirements. Indeed this
world will be a heaven on earth when all
people attend to their own personal matters
only. The latest news from Fred Chan
dler Is from California and that he Is im
proving quite fast Everett.

The Interest taken bv the creneral nubile
in novelties, especially in medicine, is pat
ent, and consequently the Keoley cure, so
cauea, at once excites the greatest commo
tion. My attention was called to It earlv bv a
certain laudatory editorial In a Chicago re
ligious paper, which must have cost the In
ventor quite a little boodle. Without any
mental strain I discovered at once that it
was a humbug that had legs and was bound
to win because he got the religions racket
excuse tne expression) in it. and again it
appealed to so many hearts and hearthstones
throughout the land. It came furthermore
with personal proof, rare at first but It soon
spread in the shape of a cloud of witnesses
wnose daily walk was evidence that a change
had been wrought In them by some m tans.
It was a beneficial change, also, and tho'
the time in all cases Is somewhat brief to
form conclusions from, still many of these
we know and hear of as having been treated
with this so called cure, still maintain their
Integrity and are manifestly weaned from
drink, and their continuance In total absti
nence will depend upon their will power
Now It makes no difference what the cure
Is composed of, you say, only so it effects
cures, without destroying too many lives,
it has killed some, but nothing to the num
ber daily destroyed by drink so say we all
of us, but it does'nt alter my proposition that

It Is riding a humbug. You have all heard
the story of the old doctor who man u fact- .
ured such wonderful pills. They cured
everything, but he positively refused to give
the composition of them until he died, and
when he did they found that they were
simply bread pills. Of course n more
cures could be performed with them, and so
with Keeley's "bi-chloride cure," take away
the mystery and it would fall to the ground
Most Intelligent physicians In the county
know what the composition of the cure Is,
for it has been analyzed repeatedly, but
their evidence even if they cared to give It
would go but a little way. They can have
no respect, however, for a man who would
colu money out of the misfortunes of hl9
race and not give them the full benefit of it,
If It Is really what is claimed for It. So
when the writer innocently perpetrated a
squib on its originator, the other day, before
a meeting of the State Medical Society at
flint 1 inadvertantly called down maledic
tions from certain simple minded or Interest
ed persons upon my head, notably oue from
the Jackson Citizen wherein the writr ar
rays all doctors, together with a crazy wom
an whose husband she claimed Keeiey killed,
as against the cure. This Is all wrong.
Doctors think that whatever it Is, If It is
productive of good let it run and be glorified.
But since 1 have been snapped up about the
matter let us look Into the thing and Inquire
as the Irishman did about the Limburg
cheese, "What's in it?"
First then, there Is no such chemical com
pound as the bi-chloride of gold. It Is a
chemical impossibility a nihility. There is
a chloride of gold, but the only preparation
of the metal which is of any use at all in
medicine is a double chloride of gold and
sodium, and tills is capable of no admixture
with nitrate of strychnine or fluid extracts.
Consequently we shall have to lay the gold
one side. But what is it? There is some
thing that Is shot into the arm that controls
for a time the nervous system, forms a sub
stitute for alcohol and bridges over the
chasm between continual inebriety and so
berness, something that satisfies the contin
ual craving for drink and enables the suf
ferer to shake oil the chains which have
bund him and step out of his shackles a
free man once more. Now It makes little
difference what this is, but it Is said that
nitrate of strychnia and cocaine are the
drugs used. I was simply showing that
it was not what It purported to be, aud
therein Is the reason why reputable physi
cians refuse to recognize the remedy, tho'
all must agree that so far the results have
been good as a rule, perhaps. It Is the
fact the name bi-chloride of gold is used to
put gold into the pockets of designing men
that they object to.
But as I said before, no matter what's In
it. If it does'nt contain double damnation
of a speedy variety, use it In preference to
being bound to a bottle for life, devoting
your time and money to that which rums
both body and soul and going down to an
unhonored and unwept grave.
