There aro n few young thugs ia this
city who have no raoro respect for
law and ordor than if there was no
such thing. Tho last part of tho week
thoy got ono of thoir "bad'rspells and
proceeded to the home of an estimablo
old lady residing a short distance south
west of this city and raised havoc in a
high handed manner. It is about time
somo kind of a curb was put on this
class of hoodlums and thoy should bo
brought up with a short turn.
I Advice to
There are three great reme
dies that every person with
weak lungs.orwith consump
tion itself, should understand.
These remedies will cure
about every case in its first
stages ; and many of those
more advanced. It is only
the most advanced that are
hopeless. Even these are
wonderfully relieved and life
itself greatly prolonged.
What are these remedies ?
Fresh air, proper food and
of Cod-Liver Oil with Hypo
phosphites. Be afraid of
draughts but not of fresh air.
Eat nutritious food and drink
plenty of milk. Do not forget
that Scott's Emulsion is the
oldest, the most thoroughly
tested and the highest en
dorsed of all remedies for
weak throats, weak lungs and
consumption in all its stages.

Tho olopemont of tho Into editor of
tho Nation with his cousin, Miss Dol
lio Rood, Tucsdny morning perhaps was
a surpriso to somo but to many it came
ns a verification of much that had been
said of him in tho past. This papor
has already contended thntthoso who
woro called his frionds would eventual
ly soo him in his truo light. Tho fact
that thoro is no law to Inlorforo in a
case whoro n man runs nway with a
school girl doos not mako tho crimeless
and n law which would restrain such
deals would not bo amiss on our statute
books. As far as absonco of tho editor
is concerned thoro will bo littlo rcgrot
and fow will caro which way or to
whoro ho has gono. and tho uncomplo
montary remarks which woro mado by
persons on tho street in regard to tho
gentleman wouldn't look nico in print.

Proof against Burglars.
The Peoples Bank hangs up a neat
sign to tho effect that thoy are protect
ed by a policy in tho Banker's Mutual
Casualty Company. This refers to nn
insurauco policy issued by tho com
pnuy to tho bank, indemnifying it from
loss that may bo caused by a burglary
or robbery of tho bank, and secures
tho bank and its patrons from tho dan
ger of loss from that score. Tho com
pany issuing tho policy pays tho loss
occasioned and in addition to this mon
oy protection tho company has an ef
ficient detective service which is nt

a policy in the company, and bringing

regardless of tho timo or effort ro

patrons of tho bank can roadily see tho
great merit of such protection.
