THE FALLS CIT TRIBUNE , FRIDAY , JULY 17 , 1908.
BITTEN BY A MAD DOG.
Mrs. P. W. Crlnstcad Being Treated
at Pasteur Institute.
Mrs. Grinstead , wife of P. W.
Grinstead , a former superinteu-
dent of the Fremont schools ,
was bitten on the hand by a pet
dog last Wednesday at her coun
try home in Kentucky and was
hurried to Chicago for treatment
at the Pasteur Institute.
Mr. Grinstead was in Cleve
land at the time and hurriedly
left for Chicago , reaching there
in time to meet his wife. Chi-
c.igo physicians say that while
the dog had a violent case of
the rabies , they have begun
treatment in time to effect a
The Grinstead's have a flne
country home in K e n t u c k y ,
seven miles from Cincinnati. Mr.
Grinstead is now assistant general -
eral manager of the Cincinatli
oflice of the American Book Co.
The parties mentioned above
are well known in this city , P.
W. Grinstead being the oldest
son of R. E. Grinstead of Salem.
They have many friends here
who sincerely hope a complete
cure will be effected.
The Old Fool Hen.
I like to watch the old fool hen
that's tied beside my door ; she
has ol little chickens ten , and
thinks she has three score ; ol
all the blamed important things
that ever fussed around , she is
the worst ; all day she claws the
dirt around. She thinks she has
the only chicks , and so she clucks
and humps ; all other chickens
are-gold bricks , all other hens
are chumps. She sees a lee in
every friend , and drives the
friend away ; her feathers always
are on end , she's mad the live
long day. And so I watch the
old fool hen ; and still she seems
tome , like many chuckle-headed
men , whom every day I see.
This life to them's not worth a
cuss , no pleasure it affords , be
cause they fume and fret and
fuss about their little hoards.
With bile and envy in their
souls , pursue their narrow plan ,
and ever guard their dirty rolls
and hate their fellow man.
Big Day in St. Joe.
The order of the Knights of
Kobidoux are arranging for a
big day in St. Joe , on Tuesday ,
July 28 , with no expense to the
visitors except car tare. It is
managed in this way : when you
purchase your round trip ticket
your agent will present you with
a coupon book entitling you to
free admission to all attractions
enumerated , such as street car
rides , base ball games , prize
band concerts , all amusements
at Lake Contrary , etc. , all this
with the compliments of the
Knights ol Robidoux. It will
be a great day for St , Joe , and
will bring them many visitors ,
and will proyide one of the best
possible advertisements for the
Kansas City Market Letter.
Kansas City stock Yards , July
13,1908. The first big run of the
grass cattle season this year ar
rived today 20,000 head. The
supply was light last week , but
after Tuesday some weakness de
veloped on the grades below the
best and the week closed with
only a small net advance. Sell
ers were disappointed at the mod
erate showing made , in view of
the small supply , but buyers in
sist that sales , of meat are made
with difficulty , and their inde
pendent attitude confirms their
The good run today in connec
tion with a run of 25,000 in Chicago
cage and a bread of 15 to 25 cts
there , resulted in declines of 10
25cents here. The hot weather
is against consumption of meats
and while the market has made
some phenomenal recoveries this
summer from apparently perma
nent breaks , it was due to circum
stances which reduced supplies
temporarily. Good run will likely
mean a lower range of prices.
Cows bring S2.50 to S4-25 , heif
ers $3.25 to $4-75 although iancy
fed heifers from Nebraska sold at
$6.75 to 57.00 here last week , and
the same quality would bring al
most as much today. Calves are
also lower today , at $3 50 to $4.00
feeders $4 00 to $4.80 , a few part
ly finished steers upward into the
fat cattle price range.
Small supplies of hogs togethei
with indications of a short num
ber in the country to be marketed
soon , keeps the hog market on
the advance although buyers se
cured some declines one or two
days last week. Heavy hogs are
scarce but the } ' are also in least
demand today and will likely soon
drop into the rear of the price
column. Average weight is run
ning about 195 pounds.
Sheep and lambs are making
some advance lately , including a
gain of 10 to 15 cents today- The
run is moderate , it being between
seasons in the range country.
Run today is 5,000 head , spring
lambs at $6.50 to $6.75 for best ,
best wethers $4.60 ewes $4.35.
Good feeding wethers and ewes
bring $3.00 to $3 85 , lambs $4.60

DEATH OF A PIONEER.
Jesse Weaver , a Long Time Resi
dent of This Connty , Gone.
Jeseo Weaver died at the homo
of a eon , Norman \Venver , nbout
six miles BoutlieiiBt of Stella at
nine o'clock Tuesday evening ,
July 7 , 1908. Ho hud boon in
failing henlth for three or four
years , Buffering from lung trouble
with occasional attacks of iippon-
dicitis. Mr. Weaver was born in
TotVerson county , Pennsylvania ,
January 11 , 1815) ) . When he was

family came to Illinois and later

Tell Your Wife.
If you are in any trouble or
quandary , tell your wife that
is , if you have one all about it
at once. Ten to one , her Intui
tion will solve your difficulty
sooner than all your logic. The
wit of woman has been praised
but her instincts are far quicker
and keener than her reason.
Counsel with your wife or mother
or sister , and be assured light
will Hash upon your darkness.
Women are too commonly ad
judged as verdant in all butpure-
ly womanish affairs. No philo
sophical students of the sex thus
judge them. Their intuitions ,
or insights , are the most subtle.
In counselling a man to tell his
wile we would go farther , and
advise him to keep none of his
affairs a secret from her. Many
a home has been happily saved ,
and many a fortune retrieved ,
by a man's full confidence in his
"better half. " Woman is far
more a seer and prophet than
man , if she be given a fair
chance. As a general rule , wives
confide the minutest of their
plans and thoughts to their hus
bands , having no involvements
to screen from them , Why not
reciprocate , if but lor the pleas
ure ol meeting confidence with
confidence ? We arecertain that
no man succeeds so well in the
world as hevlio , taking a part
ner for life , makes her the part
ner of his purposes and hopes.
What is wrong of his impulse or
judgment , she will check and
set right with her almost uni
versally right instincts. "Help
meet" was no insignificant title
as applied to man's companion.
She is a helpmeet to him in every
darkness , difficulty and sorrow
of life. And what she most
craves and most deserves is con.
fidence without which love is
never free from a shadow , Pur
Valley Palls hung it onto At-
chison's new professional team
yesterday by the score of 7 to 1.
This is a surprise to the fans , as
they had begun to believe that
the new team was invincible.
It is well to remember , however ,
that it was at Valley Falls ,
which has a sort of a Falls City
and a llushville reputation when
it comes to beating teams on the
home grounds. They rarely lose.
Atchison Globe ,
The Falls City team not only
wins on its home grounds but on
about any other ground they
play on. If you don't believe i t
we would like to arrange a game
with your "invmr.ibles , "
Rev. I. W. Williams Testifies.
Rev. I. W. Williams , Huntlngton , W.
Va. , testifies as follows : ' 'This Is to cer
tify that I used Fo'.ey's Kidney Remedy
for nervous exhaustion and kidney
trouble , and am free to gay that Foley'a
Kidney Remedy will do ajl that you
claim for It. " Kerr'a pharmacy.
