Mr. McDonald scoured the tow n and

to advertise lor the cow and soon after '

from PhittsuuutU to the effect that !

Those who happen to detect indica
tions of diphtheria and cannot secure
the attention of a physician at once
may find use for the following sugges
tion: At tbe first indication of diph
theria in the throat of a child make
the room close, then take a tin cup and
pour into it a quantity of tar and tur
pentine, equal parts. Then hold the
can over a fire so as to fill the room
with fumes. The little patient on in
baling the fumes, will cough up and
spit out all tbe membraneous matter,
and the diphtheria will pass out. The
lumen of the tar and turpentine w ill
loosen the matter in the throat and
thus afford the relief.

Al I'ont, the bashful bachelor who;
edits the Howell Journal, had heaps
of trouble in Schuyler, one day last
week, sayB the Scribner News. He was 1
transacting some business in the

came in to be married. There was no
chance to escape and he held the baby
for them while the ceremony was per-
formed. He was badly rattled, but
the Journal came out on time.
A letter from Hamburg, Iowa, makes
the following statement as to fruit
shipments from that place: "The ship
ments of green fruit from here this
season have been as follows: Apples,
12.9S9 barrels; grapes, by freight, 1,100
baskets; plums, 215 caskets. Over
eighty cars were required to carry off
these apples. In 1891 there were 34.615
barrels of apples shipped from Ham
burg in 230 cars. This year's crop is a
good one for the season." There is no
eood reason why the shipments from
this place should not double that from
Hamburg if only the energies and
enterprise of land owners about town
were directed toward raisiDg fruits.
