Too Crest n. Risk.
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. Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and r iarrhoea Remedy has
undoubtedly saved the lives of more
jieople and relieved more pain and sillier
ing than any other medicine in use. It
can always l depended upon. For sale

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,

fault of the )eople of this Northwestern

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

everything was a glare of ice; Every

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
