Guilty Of Wrowy.
Some people have a fashion ef con
fusing excellent remedies with the
large mass of "patent medicines," and
in this they are guilty of a wrong.
There are some advertised remedies
fully worth all thatjs asked for them,

Bitters. The writer has had occasion
to use the Bitters in just such a cli
mate as we have most of the year in

From the Ottawa (Kas.) Republican,
Yesterday a Republican reporter
met Mr. A. J. lleid, attorney of Kan
sas City, and agent for the Golden
Eagle Mining company, of Central Ci
ty, Black Hills; Mr. Iteid's business
here so vitally interests Franklin
county, and especially Ottawa and
Williamsburg, that it may be well to
give S'me details.
Last spring Mr. L. P. Johnson, vice
president and general manager of the
Golden Eagle Consolidated Mining
company, of Central City, I). T., went
to Kansas City, and went Into the real
estate business on a very extensive
scale. His principal plan was to ex
change the stock of the company for
lands. In this, with the assistance f
Mr. Iteid, and sub-local agents, he has
secured valuable tracts in Kentucky,
Missouri and Kansas. Through Mr.
E. M. Bartholow, of Williamsburg,
this company has recently purchased
the "Kuster property," adjoining the
burg, which comprises some 1,91 acres'
of choice coal land, and is also well
improved with goed buildings orch
ards, timber, water, etc.
But this transfer of real estate does
not constitute the chief interest. A
powerful company is now being organ
ized to develope the coal mines under
lying all this land, and as soon ad the
organization is thoroughly effected vi
gorous operations will be commenced
