We learn from the Butler Coun
ty Republican that work has
commenced on the railroad exten
sion from David City west. Four
gangs of men are grading on the
line of the road, and it is believed
they will finish to the west boundary

October. It is stated in the same
connection that the iron will be
laid as fast as the grading ia com
pleted. On Saturday afternoon Maj.
Frank North's new building very
narrowly escaped destruction by
fire. Mr. Young, Jno. Routson
and Platte Baker were the ones
first on hand and put the fire out
before it had done any serious
damage. Near the head of the 6tairs
there was found a basket of clothes,
which by some means (supposed to
"be the tobacco pipe of Mr. Antony),
bad been set on fire, the flames com
municating with the walls and ceil
ing. Five or ten minutes would
probably have consumed the entire
building. The house is new,
having just been finished, but. as wo
are informed, has not yet beeu
occupied by the family.

Rob. Piuson threshes twenty and

three hundred and four bushels of
oats ofi seven acres.
Why is This, Thus?
Sometime ago I saw a citizen of
this city hunting up the Marshal to
have him remove some cars which
stood on the sidewalk and obstruct
ing travel ou said walk. This, per
haps, was all well enough and likely
the railroad company should not ob
struct the sidewalks and street-crossings,
but why should wo try to have
the railroad company obey tho law
to the better and permit our citi
zens, or some of them, to disregard
tho law? On O Street ono of our
busiuess men built a sidewalk twice
the width required by ordinance to
serve bis own purpose and wheu he
filled one half with his articles of
trade he was instructed to clear his
walk of obstruction, which he did
by cutting his sidewalk in two and
leaving it the required width.
The following shows the celerity
with which moderns do their work.

An Astonishing Fact.
A large proportion of American
people are to-day dying from tbe
effects of Dyspepsia or disorderd
liver. The re3ult of these diseases
upon tho masses of intelligent and
valuable people is most alarming
making life actually a burden instead
of a pleasant existence of enjoyment
and usefulness as it ought to be.
There is no good reason for this, if
you will ouly throw aside prejudice
and skepticism., take tbe advice of
Druggists and your friends, try one
bottle of Green's August Flower.
Your speedy relief ia certain. Mil
lions of bottles of this medicine have
been giveu away to try its virtues,
with satisfactory results in every
case. You can buy a sample bottle
