that his visits to this place will be
frequent in the future.

SAVED HIS LIFE
So says Mr. T. M. Reed, a highly
respected Merchant of Mld
dletown, III., of a Young
Man who was supposed
to be in Consumption.
"One of mv customers, some
vears ago, had a son who had all
the symptoms of consumption.
The usual medicines afforded him
no relief, and he steadily failed
until he was unable to leave his
bed. His mother applied to me
for some remedy and I recom
mended Aver's Cherry Pectoral.
The voting man took it according
to directions, and soon began to
improve until he became well
and stroii"." T. M. Reed, ilid
"Some time ago, I caught a
severe cold, mv throat and lungs
were badlv inflamed, and I had a
terrible cough. It was supposed
that I was a victim of consump
tion, and mv friends had little
hope of recoverv. But I bought a
bottle of Aver's Cherry Pectoral,
took it, and was entirely cured.
Xo doubt, it saved my life."

team last Friday night and quite
seriously hurt. Dr. McCabe, of
North Platte, was called and gave
very little encouragement as Jensen
was bleeding inwardly, but by a
lucky chance the bleeding stopped,
and Chris is doing quite well though
not yet able to get home. This
was a very close call and only one
man in a hundred would have pulled
through, and Chris seemed to be

A correspondent, who is suffer

to church last Sunday evening.
This is nothing unusual. 1 often
go to church and it usually does me
no harm. It is true a man takes
his life in his hand, so to speak,
when he enters a tabernacle in win
ter weather, but it is one's duty to
go. You sit by the open window
and absorb the winter atmosphere
that frolics around you and in
wardly envy the congregation near
the stove. Chilled by the icy
breath, you ponder involuntary of a
climate where heat is abundant
and where even the most haughty
blizzard would burn brown. There
is nothing that develops more lux
uriantly in the field of imagination
than contrasting ideas. In sum
mer you long for the bracing winter
winds and as you sit by the window
in the sanctuary and get the brac
ing winds you have longed for fan

Janitors will have much to ans

It is easier for a needle to go
through a camel's eye than it is
for a janitor to stop an air-hole.
The deadly determination of the
average janitor to admit the sin
tossed Blizzard into the society of
church-going people may be the
correct thing, but it is hard on the
circulation. Yet if there is any way
to bring about a radical change in
the life of a Nebraska Blizzard, let
it be done. The conversion of a
Blizzard, utterly given to worldli
ness. into a gentle disciple of at
mospheric peace is a consummation
devoutly to be wished. I am will
ing to suffer the pangs of neuralgia
that are now drilling me full of
holes if by it I can bring one Bliz
zard to repentance. I am not a bad
man naturally and when a Blizzard
smites me on one cheek I turn the
other also. It is the best way to
act under the provocation and gives
the first cheek time to recover from
the blow. It is not wise to strike
a Blizzard, anyhow, and it is equal
ly unwise to admit a full-grown
one into a moral atmosphere. I
am thoroughly convinced that the
only way to do a Blizzard any good
is to take him as a child when he

interesting document. Its great
length and manifold provisions may
make it very difficult of adoption
