In almost every neighborhood someone has died from an attack of colic or chol era morbus, often before medicine could be procured or a physician summoned. A reliable remedy for these diseases should be kept at hafil. The risk is too great for anyone to t:ike.

Last Monday evening there was a party given at Mr. Parsons, in honor of the schiol teachers, who are to leave next Friday evening, school being out on that day, and a large number of young people was present, (mostly those who belonged to the reading circle.) We understood they were to gather for the purpose of bidding the teachers good-bye, but as we like to put it- off as long as possible we lid not bid them good-by. Every body seemed to enjoy themselves under the hospitality of Mr. Parson's folks, and all relished the ice cream and cake. As school will be out Friday we expect this party will be the last one for this seaann, and especially where the teachers and some of the scholars can be together. No doubt they all wish to be together again at anothest party, but as life is so uncertain we can't tell whether we ever shall again, or not, but some of us of course will be, Carey Items.

To Peggy we extend the right hand of fellowship and hoe that we may have the pleasure of an acoiamtance although It may not be in town. We are sorry to leave the country for city life as we have trird it in an eastern state ad liiul it not to our liking, hut sometimes one must do things not to their liking in order to be able to live.

Horton arrived at our school house just asS. S. was finished. He was accom panied by Mr. John Davis, Mr. Burtell Misses Ona and Eihel Sageser and Edith Burke and Mr. Howard Burke. ' There was a good crowd in attendance and from the interest manifested during the sermon 1 know they all enjoyed it as 1 mvself did. Rev. Horton is a very plain talker and don't hesitate to picture us Us we look to others, he spoke of the main fault of the )eople of this Northwestern Nebraska which one little word explains and that is grasping, and reaching out for more wealth regardless of the com fort of others or of other families and forgetting thereby the golden rule. "Do unto others as you wish them to do unto you." This is the way it reads out west here. "Dn unto others as they do unto yon" which you all know isn't right, but snmnc.n easier to live up to it seems like. There were quite a few in this locality that wasn't there that should have been. Nw don't all say "Peggy means me" for I mean no one in partic ular but. many.

BREEZES FROM CENTRAL CITY. May 4th. 1003. It has been sdme time since we have penned items, but we continue to read the Press with increasing interest; As Harrison is such a busy place, we won der each week what will l the next. It did not rain lie re Easter Sunday, but we had miis up at that time, and they were four inches high. When the recent storm and freeze struck us on the 37th. peach, plum, and cherry trees were in bloom und apple trees were pink just ready to open, The wind blew very hard all dav Monday and towards evening it calmed down a little; Tuesday morning it Iwgan misting a little and got down to business before the next inornipg when everything was a glare of ice; Every tree, bush, and weed was encased in ice and the trees were breaking with their extnw weight. Ice formed in the ponds ovtran inch thick; Maby it didn't make us feel sick at the stomach to see all our fruit prospects blighted. Our straw berries have not bloomed yet, so we dare hope a little. Wheat is all right so far; top leaves of alfalfa look as if they had been through a fire; Leaves on the trees are black and fulling, time enough for mora to grow. We pitied the Sioux Co. people during the storm, for we thought it would be worse there, but are glad to learn it was not as bad there as here. Well M. A.
