From tlio Outlook.
Mr. Krings went to Columbus Monday
to see his wife, who haw been in a hospi
tal there during the past month. We
have been informed that she is getting
along nicely and expects to return home
in about two weeks.
There seems to be considerable sick
ness in tbe vicinity at present, mostly on
the pneumonia order. While no fatali
ties have resulted as yet, still there are
several very bad cases. To much pre
caution cannot be taken this time of the
year against this dread disease.
From the Democrat
Mrs. John Wagner, who haB been vis
iting at the homes of her nephews, John
and Jos. Hender, the past couple of
months was called to her home in Ores
ton, Iowa, Thursday on account of her
daughter, Mrs. Lulu Kern who was in
jured in a runaway Wednesday.
A fifteen year old son of Mr. and Mrs.
Joan Iiierman. of tbe St. Bernard
neighborhood, is probably the champion
boy corn pickor of tbe state. Theyoung
man will not tie fifteen years of age until
January next, during nine days this fall
picked 818 bushels of corn, an average
of nearly ninety-one bushels a day. We
understand that on one of these days he
picked one hundred and five bushels.
The feat of picking an average of ninety
one bushels a day for nine days is re
markable in this case on account of
tills boy's age. and many older and more
experienced corn pickers would have a
hard time making such a record
From th Nonpareil.
A conscientious candidate for office in
the eastern part of the state was elected
on this platform "If the voters favor
me with this office it shall ever be my
aim and desire to draw my salary with
regularity, to close my office every even
ing as early as the law will allow and to
observe every legal holiday on the calen
dar." The new surgery as it is practiced in
the Rockefeller Institute is so much like
applied mechanics that the doctor of the
future, instead of going about from pati
ent to patient carrying a few pills and
powders, will be provided with a screw
driver, a spring-drill, a pair of pliers and
a monkey wrench. The human body is
getting to be altogether to much like am
automobile. The first thing they will be
running us into a machine shop where
they will tit us with new organs just as
thev now put new carbureters and
spark-plugs in buzz-wagons.
Two mure families on the college sec
tion have been quarantined during tbe
past week for diphtheria, the Gagle and
Willett families. Children in both fam
ilies have been down with the disease, a
little girl in the latter home having had
the worst attack of it. She is improving
however, and will soon be up again.
None of the cases have been serious, the
disease appearing in a light form. Strict
precautions have been taken to prevent
tbe spread of the disease. Another
family at Olarks was quarantined this
week for scarlet fever and another at

Tuesday A. J. McKelvey eold his har
ness shop to A. . McKeen of Lincoln
who has taken possession of the business.
Mr. McKelvey has conducted the busi
ness for nineteen years and feels that he
is entitled to a little rest. He haB not
only conducted the business but has
been a constant worker at the bench all
that time and it is not surprising that
he should be longing for a little vaca
tion. Mr. McKeen will not move his
family to St. Edward until spring.

While out hunting Monday evening
about two miles south of this place, Jim
Sweeney and John Baokes found two
men, one lying on the ground and the
other hanging on a barbed wire fence,
drunk, stunned and almost frozen.
Their wagons and horses were also there
and it is supposed that they met and
both being drunk decided to have a lit
tle tistical out there all by themselves; if
that was the case they must have both
landed the "knock out punch" at the
same time. The boys loaded them into
the vehicles and brought them to town.
They were put in the corner saloon
where one soon revived and about three
men were employed to take care of him
until he was locked up in the little
"rooming house" beside the track The
other was about all night thawing out.

A new postal rnling which went into
effect the first of December compels all
persons using Christmas stickers to
place same on the back of letters and

of it's arrival unless a personal request is
made of the postmaster at the time the
package is mailed.

John Gibbon of tbe T. B. Hord Grain

bus this week to secure a moisture test.
While he knew there was considerable
moisture in it, the amount as shown by
the test was larger than expected 23.2
per cent. Corn containing 12 to Id per
cent is considered dry. while 14 per cent
moisture does not make it unsafe to pnt

Murdock McKenzie and James Mar

and night watchman respectively. They
have been very efficient officers and the
cause of their resignation is a mystery.
A little fistic encounter and some alleged

for this is the slump in prices. A year

twenty-three cents; wheat is bringing
nearer what it did a year ago than corn

gaged in trying to tame and civilize tbe
automobile driver. The supreme court
of Minnesota has declared that when a
man cranks his machine he k responsi

noise, and sustained a verdict for dam
ages for a runaway caused by such a
noise. The New York courts have held
drivers liable for damage because of the
long trail of smoke and bad smells they
have left behind them, and also made it
a crime to speed on after injuring a per
son or causing any other damage with
out waiting to bear the results. S-wn
penalties are everywhere being intl'cteii
for fast driving. Perhaps in a e-.rih.

GERMS IN HER SYSTEM.
Every Woman Should Read this
Advice and the Generous Offer
that Goes With It.
The number of diseases peculiar to
women is such that we believe this space
would hardly contain a mere mention of
their names, and it is a fact that most of
these diseases are of a catarrhal natnre.
A woman cannot be well if there is a
trace of catarrh in her system.
Some women think there is no help for
them. We positively declare this to be
a mistaken idea. We are so sure of this
that we offer to supply medicine abso
lutely free of all cost in every instance
where it fails to give satisfaction, or does
not substantiate our claims. With this
understanding, no womtn should hesi
tate to believe our honesty of purpose, or
hesitate to put our claims to a test.
There is only one way to overcome
catarrh. That way is through the
blood. You may use all the snuffs,
douches or like remedies for years with
out getting more than temporary relief
at best. Catarrh m Kunerat is a diseased
condition of tbe eyBlem mat shows
locally most frequently in discharges
from mucous membranes. Local treat
