Final Proofs.
Kerosene oil is developing rare
medicinal properties, but the latest use
to which we have heard of its h»*ing
put, is a cure for rattlesnake ioison.
A dog which was bitten up in Potter
county a few days ago. was cun*d by
scniping the wound and applyiug ker
osene oil. This is something most al
wavs kept in the home of every family
in this day and age, ami if it has any
virtues for the ]ioison of the nittle
snake they should ccrtninly be known.
—Re-Echo Lodge, No. 11, Indeiiend
ent Onler of Odd Fellows, which is
building the new lodge hall and busi
ness house at Clifton, is the second
wealthiest lodge in Dakota, and has ac
cumulated funds enough to put up the
building, which will IH* an ornament to
the place, furnish the Hall and have
means left. The Onler is a noble one.
and. with everything else, we have no
doubt the Clifton Lodge will experience
a boom, and largely increase both its
incmlicrship and wealth in the year to
come. We have heard a number ex
press a desire U "ride their goat"
when the lodge gets in shape for busi
maw at its new home," which will not
be very long, us work is actively pro
gressing. and many who are already
ntcmlM'rs
of lodges buck in the States,
but have taken up their residence in
Sully county, will atliliate themselves
with Uie Clifton Ludgc. JLoug may it

—The election for school olllvers in
the 27 districts of Sully county, which
takes place on Satunlay of next
Sept. 15th. is one of considcmble im
portance to us ivs a people, for upon
the wise selection of the officers elected
at that time largely depends the wel
fare and upbuilding of our educational
interests in the future. Then let us
have a good scnd-ofT by choosing men
of intelligence, and, if possible, these
who have had exjierienee in school
matters heretofore. See that the entire
lioanl consists of men who are n«»t
afraid to put their shoulders to the
wheel and work for the noble cause of
education. We presume that in some
townships no election will be Jield,
cause of the fact that the great mass of
the settlers are young people without
families, but for various reasons we
think it would le desirable to elect of
ficers and organize the t»oanl. Anoth

our midst who have children to schrtol.
