We had the pleasure of meeting yes
terday Mr. M. It. Thompson, who. in
connection with Smith ISros., bankers
of Beatrice, i.s preparing to open a
bank at Bed Cloud for the accommoda
tion of thu Kcpublican valley. The
banking firm will be "Smith Bros, iv
Thompson," and the names of the gen
tlemen who compose it will lie sufll
eient recommendation to the peo
ple of western Xebrabka. No Insti
tution in the .statu bears a better
reputation for promptness, reliability
and responsibility than the First Na
tional bank of Beatrice, under the con
trol of Smith Jlros. The new bank of
Bed Cloud will commence business
earlv next week. State .lonrnal.
AFTER our sale of 20 per cent off we have a lot of Rem
nants and Odd Lots which we will dispose of at bargains.
These are all good, clean goods. This is your chance to buy
m j EAIAC1i man mey uo. 1 ne nose we sen, it sometimes
If Oil l Mudrn seems, ought to wear better. Customers occasion
ally say that no stockings
is partly in the Stocking and partly in the wearer.
Women don't wear as heavy 1 lose as they once wore. They say: "Give
me something thinner; I can't wear those thick ones." And, of course, the ma
terial is not in them to give service. We would not c.pcct the same service
from a lace and broadcloth gown, yet we do something similar in our reasoning
on Hose. ' (
Then many require that their Hose fit like a glove. If they were to buy :i
half si.e larger they would add much to the life of a pair of I lose. A good deal
depends on the treatment given a Stocking. If it is pulled on, twisted on, jerked
on, or worn with ill-fitting shoes, even a firm Stocking will-soon give way. ,
It must be said, too, that dyes which are too strong will ruin a St6ckfng.
That is where the customer is powerless, and it is where we are powerless as.,
well. The old iron-wearing Hose were ingrain dyed colored in the yarn before,
knitting. The newer fast blacks are much more evenly dyed, but an acid is usetV
that sometimes gets ahead of the watchfulness even of experts. Hut people
would not have the old gray-touched Hose and they can't have guaranteed wear
combined with fast, even color. ( ,
In ladies' Hose we have the following Embroidery Hose':
Medium Weight Cotton Hose,
Heavy Weight Cotton Hose,
Fleece Lined Cotton Hose, -

, Crip has been widely prevailing In
tlie United States. Many years ago,
when it was widely prevailing in Bos
ion, we sent an ottiecr to a large mateli
faeto.ty, who found that not ( singl'
person of all employed there had been
troubled with the, grip, the reason
ibeing that they were at work on sul
phut. We have several times published
articles on tills subject, showing that,
in sulphur mines everybody escaped
the malaria which was prevailing all
about them, that in California men
engaged in bleaching with brimstone
fumes escaped epidemics.
Casey Young, member of Congress
,from Memphis. Tcnn., assured us many
years ago at Washington thai when
the yellow fever was raging in that
elty he advised some dozen or more
gentlemen in his otllces to wear pow
dered sulphur in their shoes, and all
who took his advice escaped the fever.
lUis well known that the old prac-
tiee of takinir iiulnhur and molasses in
the spring would so penetrate the body
as to blacken the silver coins In the
pockets of the persons taking it. We
wish that some ot our eminent physi-
eh'iis would carefully investigate the
, advisability of wearing powdered sul-
piiur almut the body in times of cpi-
.leinie diseases.-(3eo. T. Angell. editor
