The town board inform- us that they
are determined to put a stop to those
people, who adopt pugilistic methods
for settling their disputes, electing the
streets of Shelby for a fighting ground,
by prosecuting every person who be

And the board is to be commended for
this. If people will fight let them go

they are out of sight and hearing of

Eight o'clock closing by Monroe

satisfactory. Tbe new arrangements
are appreciated by both clerks and em

Burlington at that point. He was sent
back here to take treatment at Colum

plant for his farm borne, the system to
reach all buildings on tbe farm where
light is used. He bas just completed a
private garage for bis automobile and

used for an engine and dynamo house.
While the expense of installing such a
light plant is considerable, tbe cost of
running it is not large.
beginning witb Monday of this week
the primary room of the Monroe schools
was moved into tbe new school building,
just completed. With tbe addition of
this building the much needed room is
provided, and a re-arrangement was
made in tbe large building. Tbe gram
mar room was changed from tbe second
floor to the first in the room occupied
by the intermediate department, and tbe
latter given tbe room vacated by tbe
primary department. Tbe upper floor
of tbe main building is devoted entirely
to the High school, tbe recitation room
now being in tbe room formerly occupi
ed by the grammer department. Here
tofore tbe High school has been crowded
owing to the fact that there were three
grades in it. and also two teachers.
This addition is an advantage to the en
tire school, as it gives ample room for
the present. For tbe present tbe rooms
will be heated by stoves, but it is only a
question of a few years until some me
thod will be adopted.

We Guarantee to Cure Dyspepsia. If
We Fail the Medicine Costs
To unquestionably prove to the people
that indigestion and dspep-iu can be
permanently relieved and that Rexall
Dyspepsia Tablets will bring about this
result, we will furnish the. medicine
absolutely free if it fails to give satisfac
tion to any one using it.
The remarkable success of Rexall Dys
pepsia Tablets is due to the high degree
of scientific skill used in devising their
formula as well as to the care exercised
in their manufacture, whereby tbe well
known properties of Bismutb-Subnitrate
and Pepsin have been combined witb
Carminatives and other agents.
Bismuth Subnitrate and Pepsin are
constantly employed and recognized by
tbe entire medical profession as invalua
ble in tbe treatment of indigestion and
Tbe Pepsin used in Rexall Dyspepsia
Tablets is prepared by a process which
develops its greatest efficiency. Pepsin
supplies to the digestive apparatus one
of tbe most important elements of tbe
digestive fluid, and without it the diges
tion and assimilation of food are im
possible. The carminatives possess properties
which aid in relieving tbe disturbances
and pain caused by undigested food.
This perfect combination of these ingre
dients makes a remedy invaluable for the
complete relief of indigestion and dys
pepsia. We are so certain of this that we urge
you to try Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets on
our own personal guarantee. Three
sizes, 25 rents, 50 cents and $1.00. Re

Here is an item of information taken
from tbe Washington Post which should
be given general publicity: "My con
gregation coughed this morning,?1 said a
minister to a physician . "I could hard
ly make myself heard, it was so annoy
ing." "Well," said the physician, "the
next time they cough tell them to press
tbe upper lip just beneath the nose.
Pressing tbe nose in that quarter will
stop the most obstinate cough and, by
the same token, it will stop a sneeze, too.
I'll tell you how to stop the hic-conghs.
You press bard on the cheek right in

control tbehic-coughs as money controls

manner when tbe officers of tbe society

the natives here. Miss Bessie Freeman
arrived in Genoa from Chicago three
weeks ago to do missionary work. She

town was without a place of worship,
and was surprised to find six churches
dedicated to tbe worship of God, and
four resident ministers administering to
tbe spiritual needs of tbe people. She
realized that her services were not in

John Sule was seriously injured while
working at the mill last Friday. He
wa9 assisting in unloading wheat from a
car, (they have a patent machine for
doing tbe work,) when in some manner
be became entangled in a pulley rope
getting one foot through the coils. He
was jerked up against the ceiling and
down to the floor again every two sec
onds. His leg was badly broken and
splintered between the knee and ankle.
In his frantic efforts to free himself be
caught hold of tbe rope and bis arm was
carried around tbe pulley badly bruising
it but did not break it. Finally on one
of his descends he had presence of mind
enough to catch hold of tbe weight on
tbe gear and release tbe clntch thereby
stopping the machine. Others about
him were powerless to help him.
