ltev. T. DeWitt Talmage, in con
versation with a Bee man at the Mil
lard, spoke as follows on topics of
general interest: "I desire to congrat
ulate the people of the great west
upon the excellent prospects of a
bountiful harvest this year. I have
seen the fields of Ohio, Indiana, Kan
sas, Iowa, Nebraska and Illinois and
feel rejoiced that the yields will be the
greatest in the history of the country
The Elmwood people are evidently
very sore because they were shut out
of the base ball league recently organ
ized in this county. The Echo this
week prints a large cartoon composed
of "brownies,"' representing the Elm
wood ball players and underneath the
following words appear: "The Elm

THE EVIL WORD,
(Written for The Jocrnal.)
Speak not for evil, for thy word will roll
And echo till the final trump shall sonnd,
Bevond thd fair horizon's utmost bound,
t ms.y bring death unto some thoughtless 60ul.
Just as the arrow, loosed beyond control
Of bow and string no nearer thing may wound,'
But, passing onward to some lower ground,
t finds some creature's vitals at its goal .
Let all thine efforts be to lift the weak;
Point upward to the mountain top above;
Strew many flowers along the pathway bleak
The snowy blossoms of fraternal love.
Guard Up and hand from evil word and deed ;
Upon thy brother's road plant thou no weed.

Some fellow from Elmwood who
couldn't drink his coffee without poli
tics in it, went down to Weeping
Water to bear Sam Jones lecture last
Friday. He buttoned around to Sam
and managed to ask:
"Are you a republican?"
"No, I am not," responded Sam.
"Are you a democrat?"
"No I am not."
"Are you a populist?"
"Are you a fool?" asked Jones, and
the conversation closed.

To the afflicted:
Several years ago I discovered a
slight falling and bleedingof thelower
bowel which increased aud became
very distressing. Imade inquiry as
to the nature of the disease and learned
that I had a somewhat aggravated case
of Hemorrhoids or Piles. Was told of
several remedies and used them as. di
rected, obtaining thereby some tem
porary relief. Not being satisfied with
such slight relief I cast about for a per
manent cure; when a friend directed
the use of the famous Magnet Pile
Killer. I used it. Immediate relief
from pain followed, and soon a com
plete cure was affected.

It was morning and I walked abrcad
in the fields.
The birds sang and the flowers
nodded in the wind.
The sky was blue and ti.e wood was
green. And nature's breath was like
the spices of the far off isles.
Aud I thought the world was fair.
Presently I saw a strange pair ap
proaching me, arm in arm.
One was tall and thin, his face was
pale and his long beard lay in silver
waves upon his breast.
He held a magnifying glass in his
long, bony fingers.
The other was short and round, his
face was red, aud he laughed and
looked at me with eyes that were well
In his fat hand he carried a cap,
adorned with tiny bells.
His dancing feet seemed scarce to
ouch the ground.
They drew near, and I heard the
first one say, "Be silent, fool !"
And the fool said, "The birds are
not silent, why should I be?"
And he whistled mockingly and his
merry voice echoed along the hills.
The bearded one said, "How shall I
teach thee wisdom?"
And he looked at the sky and his
eyes were filled with tears.
nd the fool said, "Why art thou
He said, "Life is a solemn thing,
who kuoweth what is beyond the
And he took his glass aud looked
ong and searchingly across the hills.
And the fool said, "We shall see be
yond the mist soon enough, let us eat
and dance and sing, for perchance we
may die tomorrow."
And the other said, "Silence."
The fool whirled upon his toes and
waved his cap and sang, "Silence is for
the dead ! Silence is for the dead j
And the birds sang loud in answer.
The fool gathered the red berries
that grew along the way aud ate and
smacked his thick lips.
He said, "They are very good; these
are tor thee."
And he offered them to his compan
But the wise man turned away in
He said, "Thy grossness maketh my
And he looked through his glass at
the fool and pity rained from his eyes.
But the fool only laughed and said,.
"Thou art my brother."
The wise man said, "I pity thee,
Then the fool laughed louder than
before, and jingled his bells in a per
fect frenzy of delight.
I noticed that all about the fool the
grass was greener anu me nowers
were sparkling with dew.
A little silver stream ran along the
border of the wood.
The vines leaned down from the
trees to touch his rosy cheek.
But the rocks were brown and bare
at the Wise Man's feet, and the dust
lay in yellow drifts across his path.
He walked heavily, as one in pain.
They passed on and I watched them
till they faded from sight.
And at last I could not distinguish
the wise man from the fool.
