I made inquiry as tothe nature of the disease and learned that I had a somewhat aggravated case of Hemorrhoids or Piles.

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 Killek. I used it.

Colonel Greusel, like General .Sneiidan, was cool as a cucumber' in a battle and. also like him, was friendly and so ciable with his men, and very lenient in regard to violation of red tape' orders or rules, and very strict in re gard to all essential requirements of the service. It is said that 'earth hath one joj that heaven cannot give that of re lieving and cheering the needy and suffering.' -And, though we would all much like to give up all, that we maybe entitled to of that exceptional joy, if thereby there would be no needy and suffering people, just as we would all gladly give up the 'glory' and 'fame,' knowing that 'glory is a hollow sound and fame is but an empty name,' it we could only see the time when peo ple should be so far 'developed' in humanity, civilization and Chris tianity, that 'war with its horrors,' or the more gigantic evils that cause it, should never curse the human race.

Atchison Globe. A Valuable Invention. W. A. Boeck of Auburn bas in vented a revolving store shelf that is one of the best things of the kind for stores that are crowded for shelf room that ever was introduced, and is bound to meet w ith popular favor. He re ceived notice last week that his patent was granted. The shelf is so arranged that it can be worked from the floor and obviates the old style of ladders to get down shoe3 besond the reach of clerks, be sides twice the amount of shelf room is afforded. The shelves are fastened to continuous chains and revolve with out disturbing the contents of the shelves iu the least. The shelves are made any height, simply by adding links to the continuous chain, and when in position any shelf can be brought within reach by pulling on the shelves and making them revolve. Mr. Boeck bas not yet decided upon the manufacture of the same, but is in corresponnence with foundries and will probably have some on the market soon. It is reported that several employes of the B. & M. shops here have been given their time for non-payment of debts. This is in accordance with a recent rule of the company, which is being rigidly enforced by that road at every point. Mayor Bartling says: "I am in favor of getting a copy . the affidavit that Judge Chapman made iu the water- works case and if the manv things he is said to have charged in them, are really there, then I propose to make . . a i w i ! mm prove mem. x am iireu or iuis thing."

Sometime ago I had occasion to refer to the charming and picturesque names of Hon. E. Burd Grubb and Hon. J. Gordon Sprigg. Now again do we find how much of an irrides cent dream is fame. Yesterday it was Sprigg, yet the day before and it was Grubb. Today we linger along be neath the fiery lustre of Herr Joseph Gahm. And among us Gahm is soon to be. He will appear before a Platts mouth audience equipped with his hair aud fingers and he will give you cresendo and p. p. till you cant rest. However Joe is worth listening to des pite his name. . There is at present running in Mc Clure's magazine a very attractive life of Lincoln. It is written by Miss Ida M. Tarbell and is a sort of anec dotal history. One of its principal features are the illustrations. The oldest inhabitant never remem bers such a winter as the present. It is seldom that winter eomes to Ne braska clothed in green and warmth like the present one, and it is such a winter as we should appreciate. Dur ing the depression of the past few years much poverty has obtained in the land and the open winter is to the poor a blessing. Truly "The Lord tempers the wind to the shorn lamb." The transferring of Itev. Frank Crane from Omaha to Chicago means that the sensation center of the coun try will now be Chicago. Crane is one of the kind of people that persistently believe that the world can be made better by means of political sermons and his whole ministerial course in Omaha has been marked by episodes of this character.
