Mr. J. C. Parsons, while working with
his wind mill on last Wednesday morning
got his wrist caught in the gearing, asd
severed the large artery, and it looked
for a while as if Mr. Parsons would bleed
to death. Dr. Phinney was away at the
time, and Dr. Richards of Crawford was
telegraphed for, and arrived about three
o'clock in the evening, and dressed it, It
will be some time before Mr. Parsons will
be able to use his hand, and wrist.
Crip Remedlee In Great Demand-
Wlien colds and grip are prevalent the
quickest and surest remedies are in great
demand. Mr. Joseph D. Williams, of

very deep and lasting attack of la grippe
by using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
after trying several other preparations
with no elf act. For s-ile by all Druggists

The riding contest that was to take
place last Saturday., between Gtorge
Hill andMike Carroll Jr., failed to come
off. but we had some riding anyhow.
George and Clyde Rugen had a riding con
test, George taking the money. George
also rodu another horse for a purse of

was in that business by ruoning his
thumbs up his horse's neck. The horse
bucked for a while and then ran for the
lawyer' oflice. and finding him away
from home, broke a panel out of the
door, and that ended the circus.

Cured by One Bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. ,
'When I had an attack of the grip
last winter (the second one) I actually
cured myself with one bottle of ('bans
berlain's Cough Remedy." says Frank
W. Perry, Editor of the Enterprise, at
Shortsville, N . Y. "This is the honest
truth. I at times kept from roughing
myself to pieces by takiag a teaspeoifuj
of this rumedy, and w lien the coujihtOK'
spell would come on at night I would
take a dose and It seemed that in the
briefest interval the cough would pass
off and I would go to sleep rfectly free
from coiifjh and its accompaning pains
To say that the remedy acted as a most
agreeable surprise is putting is very
mildly. I bad no idea that it would or
could knock out the grip, simply because
I had never tried it for such a purpose,
but it did, and it seemed with the second
attack of coughing the remedy caused it
to not onlv be of less duration, but the
pains were far less severe, and I bad not
used the contents of one bottle before
Mr. Grip had bid me adieu." For sale by
all Druggists.
The Junior Normal bill is now a law,
and we are to have Junior Normals at
Alliance, McCok,and Valentine and two
other places to be chosen later. The
question is now up to the different
County Supts. and teachers, whether this
venture will prove a success or not We
consider this the grandest chance that
has ever been offered to the teachers of
the Northwest, and to these that are
thinking of preparing to teach, There is
no doubt but what the Superintendents
will find shirkers from this, the same as
County Institute work, but if every Co.
Supt. will lie firm, the children of this
North-west will have better teachers and
the tax payers will feel more like raising
the wages than to lower them as the case
has been heretofore. County Supts. and
teachers take hold of this matter with a
vim that will mean nothing less than
success, and success will be your reward

Ode (Owed) To March.
Old March, we're glad to see you go.
With your zeroes, and storms blizzards
and snow.
You tarried too long for any good.
You used all our feed, and burned all
our wood.
Our cattle you starved, and some you
And out on the prairie you turned up
their toes.
Their bones the coyotes soon will bare.
A gbasty reminder of "March on a tear.
Our chickens too, have lost their toes.
By your zeroes and storms, and bliz
zards and snows.
And now must roost upon the ground,
For the want of toe, the toles to clasp
And some are dead, they didn't die
The roof of the hen house their bodies
There they will stay till rain, and sun
Will cause us to swear at the havoc
you've done. .
Well March you've gone, we're glad to
That April will melt the four feet of
Thats lain on the ground since December
And uncover the bones, grim reminders
of you.

The students have baen conducting two
good litsrary societies this year and are
known as the Athenian and Spartan's.
They gave a contest Friday night which
was a graud treat. Contrary to expect-
ions the Spartans gained by seven poiuts.
They treated us to recitations, origioal
.-.tones, essays, orations aad a debute.
The judges came from St. Paul, Clarkes
and Marquette, so no farors would be
shown. The literary has been a grand
success, and has brought forth before un
known lalent. People that have had to
move this spring are glad they moved

elter from Mrs. Phebe J. Taylor (ne
Olinger) last week informs us their barn
was destroyed by fire recently with
irness and h".y. Fortunately the horses

enjoy the calm of Colo, as well as Mrs.
Rice does. J. guess the blessings are
pretty evenly scattered if we but count
them. Did you ever hear of a shower of
birds? Such a wooder struck our city
one evening last winter. It was very

to fly above the tree tops and wires, so
fluttered to the ground, quivering and
died. In the morning they laid on the
ground as thick as the W-. that was

man gathered almost a bushel in his yard
