All the People
Should keep themselves healthy and
especial care should be given to this
matter at this time. Health depends
upon pure, rich blood, for when the
blood is impure and impoverished
diseases of various kinds are almost
certalu to result. Tho one true blood
puritier is Hood's Sarsaparilla. By its
power to purify and vitalize the blood
it has proved ilMdf to be the safeguard
of health, aud the record of remarkable
cures effected proves that it has won
derful power over disease. It actually

men captmed the prize of a large
tlfteeu foot Hag, offered for tlie largest
delegation fiom any civlo society,
which was presented to tlipiu in a very
neat and titling speech by Randolph
McNitt. After dinner tho sports in
dulged in on the streets, especially the
water light, caused much amusement
lor the crowd and a couple of black
eyes to the participants, when thoi
streams of water hit them. After the
water light the fire alarm was turned
in and a run made to avbuilding north
of the Hi email's ball whloh had been
tilled with hay, saturated with kerosene
and set on tire. Uwlog to the liborrl
amount of kerosene need the boys had
hard w.irk to save even the charred
boards of the walls, aud had the lire
been started a little sooner would have
burned up before the hose team could
have arrived. In the oveulng the S.

first class concerts after which the lire
works were shot off and thus ended
another celebration of our nation's In
dependence. Dancing at the bowery
was kept up until the wee ama hours
