Tim Old riiiu^e ISenifj Torn Down—$12 OOONew Structure, During Mr. Swau's recent visit here, during which he leased Geo. Turner the Evans hotel, the plunge and other properties of the Iowa Land Co., he made arrangements for tearing down the old plunge bath structure and the erection of a new building, the frame work of which will be steel and iron. It will cover the same pool, the building being 00x220 feet iu size, with 6-foot dressing rooms on the&ide. The office will bo iu tho center as before with a waiting room on either side. It is estimated that the uew building will cost about S12,000. Mr. Turner already has the old plunge about removed and will crowd work rapidly as possible upon the uew one. Mr. Turner will also make improve ments to the other properties aud his plans now are to open the Hvaus May 1st. The STAR congratulates him upou securing tho properties and upon ob taining such extensive improvements.

When Napoleon III. was approaching sovereignty ho asked a judicious friend to observe him carefully for a week and to point out to him anything that he did which was not according to tho severest code of the manner of a well bred man. At the end of the week there was only one practice which his friend had noticed. The emperor after eating a boiled egg invariably thrust his spoon through It. Whence tills prae tioe has arisen, at one time not uncom mon, it is difficult to say. Some date it from a very early period and assume that it was done originally iu order to prevent witches sailing In the eggshells. Tho Word «ST«UH?.* In many English country dialects the word "jag" is found. It originally meant a small load of hay. from which It came to mean a load of drink so big as to overcome one. "Jag" possesses an Infinite number of meanings. The original meaning, "a load," has been extended to the journey with the load, the saddlebags which held it and the act of carrying It, while in. certain dis tricts it signifies a blister, the head of a flower, calf leather and fatigue, In addition to coinciding with "jog" and figuring In ordinary English to denote rough or "jagged" edges. A Different Bill. Bill .Tones, a western merchant, went to Kansas Cltyrto buy goods. Some of these he shipped home ahead of his own arrival and nearly frightened his wife out of her wits. The neighbors heard her shriek and, running to her rescue, found her frantically endeavor ing to remove the cover of p. big box, all because the box bore the legend, "Bill Inside." I Yourself anil Your Neighbor. There Is an Idea abroad among rnor al people that they must make their neighbors good. One person I have to make good—myself.

VOL. 20. NO. 44. Efcmcr and Philosophy By DUNCAN M. SMITH THE UNIVERSAL PANACEA. When your luck Is running crosswise And the world is looking blue. And misfortune has its augur Pointed riffht direct nt you. When the cards unt slacked against yotb Each deal running to the bad, For what ails you then, my children. Try a little old want ud. If tho cow is cross and cranky And will not give down her milk. If the hir.-d iTirl is 'sine ,* When she should be "fine as silk," If the hens remark of laying That it is a foolish fad And no longer their main business. Try a little old want ad. If you cannot lind a fortune. If you cannot find a cook. If you cannot lind a lover Like tin hero ill a book, If you cannot lind a. partner. Do not worry and be sad. Ere you give up quite ci.-eouraged. Try a little old want ad. It's a great three ply elixir, One of which the poet sings. Good for all the ills financial Ami for several oilier things Good for catching dimes and dollars. Suckers, husbands, wives and shad. When you feel the lack of something .Try a little old want ad. Near to Nature. There Is nothing more cheery than & bird in a great crowded city. The multitude moves along unmind ful of anything but tho pursuit of sor did dollars or tilled with prosaic won dering* as lo whore they will get their AllTTLE BIRD-OLD HOME nsxt lheitl, unmindful of tho beauties of nature or the call of the woods. 1L' amid all the noisy din and the self ish sordid crush and liurry one may suddenly come on a little bird it car ries him back to the country lanes and to the rollicking days of his childhood. It isn't necessary that the bird should be so little either. In fact, a twenty pound turkey fills the bill quite accept ably, particularly if it Is where a hus ky man who has brought his appetite along can get nt it with a knife aikl fork. If Wc Try. Wo cannot all bo president, That's quite well understood. There's eighty millions of us now, Hut one may wear the hood. We cannot all bo president. But wo can all bo good. The Exception. "They say lightning never strikes twice iu the same spot." "Except liquid lightning. That is tho only way it can touch the spot." Cause of Swelling. "lonsey has a terrible case of swelled head." "From falling heir to a fortune?" "No from falling down well.** 881 One Kind. "She's certainly the limit." "When did you notice it?" "The ago limit—she has been thirty eight for years." PERT PARAGRAPHS. When a girl pounds the piano she may not have it in for the instrument so much as she has it in for the neigh bors. Each man secretly thinks that he knows one handsome man. Dollars are more than coronets, and a pull with the politicians cuts consid erable more ice than Norman blood. Lazy people are not looking for a Bure cure for laziness. They know when they have a good tiling. Fewer men would be pessimists if they did not know some women who seemed to admire that quality. THAT'S A In an empty head there is gen erally concealed a tongue that rattles about con- 1ei tlily. 1 many pub lic officials are suciiy in need of a touic for their spine. You also realize that riches have wings when you are chasing them. ORAL AND FAIRVIEW Everything seems to be jogging along at the usual pace hereabouts. The Literary is still in existance and is of sufficient interest to hold a fair sized audience. Billy Brown is visiting at the Robin son ranch, Mr. Schlieve has anew feed mill and cream separator. Miss Mary Bear was expecting to make Oral a short visit on her way from California to Chicago, but found just before starting that she would be unable to do so. Alexander tjuie is about laid up with an injured knee. a. W. FLAT. (Received too late for last week.) Guy Weld on is employed at Barnard and Goodman's grocery and left Satur day morning to 1111 the place. Colds seem to be the fashion. Near ly everybody is suffering with them. Julia Mosher and Mrs. Strouse came up from Oelrichs Sunday to attend the funeral. Miss Iloltou missed several days of school lust week on account of sick ness. Mr. Sickles ima Charles Garnet have just linished threshing their corn. Hugh Mc Donald came out from Hot Springs a few days ago and is employ ed by Mr. Sickles. Mr. Sours aud Mr. Judd were on the Flat Friday to get grain. Last Sunday morning tho communi ty was over shadowed by the saddest event we perhaps have ever experienc ed. Andrew Mosier. who had been ill with pneumonia at the Hot Springs hospital for a little over a week, passed peacefully into his home beyond this earthly vale of tears. Ho was held in such high respect and honor by all who knew him that it seems like mockery to try and tell of his excellent life and the empty place he leaves which can not be filled. We can only say with Rev. Smoqjt "Behold the perfect man." Just at the dawn of the new Sabbath day While loved ones stood watching here A beautiful soul into Heaven was born As the angles were hovering near. Words cannot tell what he has done For those whom he leaves behind But he'll greet over there one by one The saints he'll be sure to find. Ho leaves brothers and sisters and father And friends both far and near There's no one to fill the vacant place That is left by one so dear. Always rich words of kindness fell From the lips that now speak no more. How little we realized a short time ago The loss we had in store Oh! we miss the one who been with us so long In Sunday-school, church and homes. Hushed is each voice and quiet each step. And eaoh greets in saddest of tones. We must not wish to call him back, Let's glance into Heaven so near Altho we can't realize his happiness there We know he prepared for it here. His life was a copy of Him who said "1 go to prepare a place" Aud tho we are weak and quite often err His life we v/ill try to trace. But a short time ago his mother was called. She was waiting for him on that shore. What a greeting there was we only can know When we meet with those dear ones once more. May God comfort the loved ones and friends that are left As only a Father can. May they realize each sorrow the Mas ter sends Is only a part of his plan. GRATOS. Report of Sand Creek School.

In a recent letter to a democratic newspaper in Sioux Falls, an insur gent republican writes: "i'ou are a democrat. 1 am a repub lican, but just where the real differ ence is I CM.nnot see. What, a pity that we could not all get together aud work together. And the reason is described by the honest caucus law." It seems strange that some people are so gullible as to be led to think that a caucus law is wrong which doesn't allow democrats to help nomi nate a republican ticket, aud at the same time be shouting in favor of a primary law that would prevent that same thing. A primary law that would permit democrats to help nomi nate a republican ticket isn't the kind that most republicans are looking for. It is the other fellow—the enemy of the republican party—that is looking for that sort of thing. They are there fore against the present honest caucus law. They want something we haven't got they are against things that are they want a change. Nickle Plated Lamps, worth $3.00, our price $2.00 I Garden and Grass Seeds, full line.
