To Zekiel.
We read in the Press- Journul this evening
Ynu medltaUi moving to town,
And may with it's sunshine and blossoms
Wi II Hod you there settled down.
There are many who've moved to the city
Who sigh for the freedom they've lost,
Who long for the broad stretch of prairie
And wish, they Lad counted the cost.
Your regrets seem all for the bird's songs
And the flowers that bloom by tlie way
Have you none for the neighbors you're
Who have brightened the years of
your stay?
You think they are glad and won't miss
A mistaken idea we feel,
Let me call to your memory this maxim
It's a poor spoke not missed from the
The city may have it's attractions
To one who for pleasure would seek.
Where Leagues, Lodges, and Banquets
Fill up every night in the week.
Where each man's a Knight or Woodman
A Mason or some other dodge,
Where money, that mighty ruling power
Will admit you into each Lodge.
We wonder what spirit has moved you
Away from Wyoming to stray.
With it'g ermines, gold mines, and rye
And come to Sioux county to stay.
We shall miss all those wonderous story s
That so freely have flowed from your
And will And ourselves searching the
Vainly Japing to read them again.
The larks and the sweet pea tassels
Are beautiful in their place,.
But are trifles when, weighed in the
balance '
With the light of a neighborly face.
So keep a green spot in your memory
For the people that around you do
Some time you may wish to move back
For the future no mortal can tell.

Cured by One Bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy.
' w hen I had an attack ol I lie grip
last winter (the second one) I actually
cured myself with one bottle of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy," says Frank
W. ferry, Editor of tlie Enterprise, at
Shortsvillf), N. Y. "This is the hooest
truth. I at times kept from coughing
myself to pieces by takiag a teaspeonfu
of this remedy, und when the coughing
spell would come on at night I would
take a dose and it seemed that in the
briefest interval tlie cough would pass
off ami I would go to sleep (perfectly free
from couth and its accompaning pnins.
To say that the remedy acted as a most
agreeable surprise is putting is very
mildly, l Had no icea that It would or
could knock out the grip, simply because
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 only be of less duration, but the
pains were far less severe, and I had not
u-d the contents of one bott le before
Mr. Grip had bid me adieu." For sale bv

Mrs. S. C. D. Basset visited our school
last Wednesday and reported the discip
line good and instruction the best. Wi
felt complimented for writing in the
register "iirsl class school." This was
her fifth visit to our school. She gave
us a very interesting and profitable talk.
Mrs. Basset said in part, site had seen an
item in a paper, of a colloquy between
distiller and a saloon keeper as follows
They were walking through a cemetery
uud reading the inscriptions on the grave
stones, they recognized there Drinking
Dan. here Tippling Tim, and Whistling
Whiskey Will and other drunkards. The
saloon keeper was agitated and exclaim
ed that if the customers died so rapidly
their business would soon be ruined. The
distiller pointed to the school yard near
by where rosy cheeked frolicking boy
und girls were playing and said. "As
long as we can get the boys to patronize
us we will keep up our business."
They must have the boys at any cost,
No matter about praying, broken heart
ed mother's and father's counsel. No
wonder they hold out the allurements o
music and dancing, and oppose temper
a ice teaching in the schools.
She emphasized the importance of
temperance instruction in the schools.
At the close Mrs. Basset made the point
that if all tlie boys and girls of our land
would sign tlie pledge und keep it, the
saloons would die for want of patronage
when the present generation of drunkards
were gone.
