L. R. DeFrance of Columbus is

Ed Young, the yoaog burglar who
weat through Charlie Brown's house a
oonple of weeks ago, plead guilty to the
oharge of burglary before Judge Hollen
beck Wednesday and was sentenced to
90 days in jail. He got off easy.
The thoaghtfulness of Ed Potter
brought to our table an account of the
death of Robert E. McOomb, who lived
about 8 aulas west of this town some
years ago. He died at Gibbon, Nebr.,
8unday, Oct. 17. His wife was formerly
Miss Jessie Currier of Genoa and seven
young children are left to mourn for
E. T. Long of St. Edward took the
early train here Saturday morning for
Charitas, la., to attend the funeral of
his brother, W. S. Long, who was one of
the old settlers of Boone county.
Word reached here Wednesday morn
ing of the death of Harry Harris at
Dallas. 8. D.t as a result of a stroke of
paralysis. Mr. Harris was formerly a
resident of Petersburg, being employed

Doug Shawvan has an offer for corn
husks to use in the manufacture of hot
taaialss of $76.00 per ton f. o. b. Albion.
Sasaples were sent him of the shape
they wars wanted. It is the whole corn
husk except the coarse colored outside.
A sharp chisel is thrust through the
husk, cutting off the stem of the ear
which is removed from the tip. It
would seem as though wages could be
made preparing the husks.

that is put in the mouth.
The farmer is the man now who is get
ting his hooks into the corn. He ib
the Big Noise. The racket that you
hear along the roads is the corn busker.
Soon corn husking stories will be
coming in. They ought to be big ones
this year hereabouts. The ears are
big and there are lots of them. The
grain is so sound and already reasona
ably dry. And there will be no corn
burned in stoves this year. It tteems
now like a dream that that sort of thing
could ever happen. Corn can now be
sold for December delivery around 60
cents in Chicago. That's not so slow.
But the price will probably go a good
deal higher later on. Considering the
subject up one Bide and down the other,
it is no exaggeration to euy that the
farmer is strictly It and then some.
Sohool obildren of a certain eastern
school have been warned by means of
printed slips pasted in their text book
by order of the board of health, not to
moisten their fingers to turn the leaves
of books or count money, not to suck
pencils or hold money in the mouth, and
not to "swap" candy, gum, half eaten
From the Democrat
In a bunch of bananas received by
Hugo 8oll the latter part of last week,
was fonnd a snake about five feet long.
It was different from anything found in
this country, and nobody in Humphrey
was able to tell just what kind of a snake
it was. However, John Boyer thought
it was a moccasin, a snake quite com
monly found in tbe south.
A orazy man escaped from the Norfolk
asylum one day last week, and succeeded
u reaching, the home, of some .of hiu
friends southwest of Humphrey before
being overtaken and captured by an
officer from the asylum. But he was not
captured without considerable effort on
the part of the officer and his assistants,
as the fellow put up a strong fight
against going back to Norfolk. He was
finally subdued and brought to Hum
phrey, Saturday afternoon, with his
hands strapped to his sides. Apparent
ly he had become resigned to going back
to Norfolk, as his actions were very
peaceable all tbe afternoon, while being
kept at the Union Pacific depot waiting
for the evening north bound train.
However, a short time before train time
he suddenly became imbued with the
idea of escape, and for an instant while
the officers back was turned, be darted
out the door and disappeared in the
darkness. On Monday, we understand
he was captured agoin at Columbus and
taken to Norfolk Monday evening We
failed to learn the name of tbe crazy
man, but we understand be is a Polander
and formerly lived several miles south
west of town.

meeting of the teachers association,

As Henry Clayburn was driving home
from town Monday, his fine single driver
became frightened at a hole in the
bridge, gave a jump and broke the shaft.
He then started to kick and atruek Mr.
Clayburn on the hand, breaking two
knuckles. Henry succeeded in backing
the horse into some machinery standing
near and probably avoided being killed
outright. He went to a doctor and had
the injured member dressed, and is get

HELPFUL HINTS ON HAIR
From the Times.
This story was told by a preacher: A
man died and went to the Bad Place,
where he took on a pompous and over
bearing manner. Finally, the devil
approached him, and said: "Who are
you, anyway? You act as though you
owned this place." "I do own it," re
plied the man. "My wife gave it to me
before I died."
Now that churches have reached that
point when most of them no longer con
sider dancing wicked, and preachers
have stopped warring against the so-called
amusement, dancing has gone out of
style, probably never to return. The
only joy people ever took in dancing
was that -they were forbidden to indulge
in it. Now that no one cares whether
they dance or not, the people have de
cided it is tiresome, and a dance is as
poorly attended as the average prayer
meeting. The women say there are no
grown men in a ball room and they are
compelled to. dance with high school
boys, many of whom they have probably
wheeled around in go carts, as babies,
It is said that in cities, when a women
wiobes to give a ball, she hires dancing
men as partners for her young women
guests, and as a consequence, there is a
rule in etiquette that no women is ob
liged to recognize a men to whom she
has been introduced in n ball room.

fate as that of dancing, 'the people are

Scalp and Hair Troubles Generally
Caused by Carelessness.
Dandruff is a contagious disosoo caus
ed by a microbe which also produces
baldness. Never use a comb or brush
belonging to some one else. No matter
how cleanly the owner may be, these
articles may be infected with microbes,
which will infect your scalp. It is far
easier to catch hair miorobes than to
get rid of them, and a single stroke of
an infected comb or brush may well
lead to baldness. Never try on anyone
else's hat. Many a hatband is a resting
place for miorobes.
If you happen to be troubled with
dandruff, itching scalp, falling hair or
baldness, we have a remedy, whioh we
believe wilt completely relieve these
troubles. We are so sure of this that
we offer it to you with the under
standing that it will cost you noth
ing for the trial if it does not produce
tbe results we claim.
This remedy is called Rexall "93" Hair
Tonic We honestly believe it to be
the most scientific remedy for scalp and
hair troubles, and we known of noth
ing else that equals it for effectiveness,
because of the results it has produced in
thousands of cases.
Bexall "93" Hair Tonio is devised to
banish dandruff, restore natural oolor
when its loss has been brought about by
disease, and make the hair naturally
silky, soft and glossy. It does this be
cause it stimulates the hair follicles, de
stroys the germ matter, and brings
about a free, healthy circulation of
blood, which nourishes the hair roots,
causing them to tighten and grow new
hair. We want everybody who has any
trouble with hair or scalp to known that
Rexall "93" Hair Tonio is the best hair
tonic and restorative in existence, and
no one should (scoff at or doubt this
statement nntil thev have ont our claims I
to a fair test, with the understanding
that tbey pay us nothing for the rem
edy if it does not give full and com
plete satisfaction in every particular.
Two sizes, 50 cents and $1.00. Remem
ber you can obtain Rexall remedy in Co
lumbus only at Pollock & Go's, drug
