came in a short time ago completely
deubled up with rheumatism. I handed
him a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm
and told him to use it freely and if not
satisfied after using it he need not pay a
cent for it," says C. P. Rayder. of Patt

walked into the store as straight as a

her hands and caught on fire, and she
was quite severely burned. Luckily, her

Some editors (?) have a habit of con
taminating their sheets with sqibs of a
defamatory character, reflecting upon
the character of some other newspaper
man. These only tend to detract from
standing of the party doing the slander
act and will, if persisted, in, read the
publisher out of job. The act is coward
ly and unmanly. If the editor has any
personal grievance., he should not bur
den the public with them. The readers
of the newspapers have troubles of thei
own, and not wish to be troubled with
something entirely irrelevant and un
calleu for to say to say the least. The
proper course for these assumptuous
disciples of Ben Franklin is to see the
party with whom they have a grievance
personally and have it rectified or go to
the courts for redress as other business
men do. These "smart aletks" may be
able to say something that will cause
the vulvar to smile, but the reat mass
of thinking citizens, either one of whom
are superior intellectually to this clans
of writers will look upon it with pity as
a jealous effort to belittle the effort ol
their supriors. Newport Republican.

THE MARKET VALVE OF A KISS-
Miss Francis Pettis, of New York, hvd
a rainer slow sort ot a lover and was
aide to keep tab on him. After a court
ship of eight or ten years the lady heard
that the lover was paying attentions to
another and she sued him for breach of
promise. She brought her note book in
to court and from it proved that the
sw.iin had kissed her 1,236 times, an
average of a little more than two a week.
The jory brought in a verdict ef 3,000
damages. There is a great deal of con
fusion in the minds of the young people
of ttie country since this veidict was
brought in. At first blush they are in
clined to believe that the jury charged
the man If 2 .43 a kiss. This is thought to
be wrong. It is alleged by most young!
people that if the girl is what she ought
to be and professes to be, a kiss, in a
courtship is a stand-olf as one party gels
as much good out of it as ttie other.
However, on maturer reflection the pub
lic is settling down to the belief that the
damages were awaided by the jury l-e-cause
the man didn't improve his time
better and kiss her oftener. No fellow
worth his salt having gained access bv
precedent, to a lady's lips, would let her
go off with .less than twelve hundred
kisses per week omitting Sundays if
there was any conscientious scruples in
the pair against Sunday work. That
would lie only two hundred a working
day. Because, if the jury was trying
to estimate the market value of kisses it
was a good deal off. At wholesale rates
$2.43 is commonly regarded excessive
