THEY CRUSH THE POWERS
This is written in mld-Octobar. Th long,
opproitsivo summer is quit gone. Fading
loaf, withering trco and -the rustling corn In
the fields are signs of tho season. Fog,
frost, rain, snow, they ore coming. You
remember last winter of 100O and 1901.
The weather was cruel. Ah I thethona
ands it killed, and tho hundred of thou
ends it maimed and crippled. Oh, the
rough grasp it laid on men at work, womta
at homo, and children in cribs and cradle.
Cought that began before ThanksgWini
Day are racking and tearing them atlll j vee,
and growing worse as they dig deeper lnt
the poor, tired throat and lungt. Many
wero cured by using llenson'a 1'oroua Plan
ter. For the soothing and healing powei
of these Plasters Is wonderful. They con
quer tho complaints
THAT ARE KILLING THE PEOPLE.
No other plaster, no other medicine or ap.
nllontlon. can conumro with them. Couch.
colds, backache, rheumatism, lumbago,
kidney and liver trouble, asthma, influ

this season, but make certain you get the

School Botid Election,
On Wednesday of next week tho eli
gible school voters are expected to vote
for or against tho ifsuing of more
bonds by school district No. 2. As will
bo soon by reading tho election no
tice published in another column of
this paper, tho proceeds are to bo used
for the purposo of placing boating
plants in tho school houses of this city.
Tho mouthers of tho board found them
selves confronted with tho question of
either doing this or buying nnother lot
of stoves. Wo boliove either n steam
or hot water plant should bo installed
in each of tho buildings, nnd theroforo
aro very much in favor of tho bonds,
much as wo dislike tho issuing of bonds
for any purpose. With stoves ono cor
ner of tho room is hot and tho balance
cold; those pupils sitting near tho
stoves nro too warm, whiio tho others
are too cold. Resides this considera
tion may bo monlionid the annoyance
to both pupils nnd teachers of having
tho janitor coming in to build tho fires,
nlso tho dirt nnd gonernl unsanltari
ncss of stoves. Tho 11, too, tho greater
economy of either ono of these heating
systams in tho matter of fuel. It has
cost this city during tho Inst school
year $450 for coal for tho thirteen or
fourteen stoves, und with either of tho
nbovo systems it should not cost half
as much to heat tho' buildings. With
either of tho systems nn oven temper-
turn could bo maintained, tho pupils
would sillier less from colds and from
cold, and while it seems a largo outlny
just at tho present lime, wo boliove in
the end it will lit found to be nn econ
omy. Therefore wo are in favor of tho
issuing of bonds.
