Tho great trouble among American
youth is the lack of application and
thoroughness in what they undertake.
Anything that cannot be learned by
superficial study is given the goby for
something less tedious. Study and hard
labor are looked at from a wrong stand
point; and as a consequence the clerk
ship ranks are full of unemployed young
men, and the professions are overflowing
with mediocrity, while good mechanics
find plenty of work at living prices.
The evil spoken of is seriously felt. And
those who work at a trade do it in so
loose and careless a manner that they
often are not competent to do the work
they promised to do.

A letter received by friends from Dr.
W. W. Frank says that they expect to
move into Hayden, Col., near where their
land U located. Ever since going there
they have been living on a farm, and the
doctor's health has been greatly improv

Loup township farmers on the south
side of the river, opposite Monroe, have
been getting posted on the prices of grain
here, and anxiously waiting for the
weather to become cold enough to freeze
the river solid enough for them to haul
their grain to Monroe on an ice bridge.
And this condition of affairs should be
an incentive to boast the bridge project,
aa there is no good reason why our neigh
bors on the south should be compelled
to wait for an ice bridge in order to
market their products in Monroe.
Ever since we have been driving the
mail on Route 1 the patrons have re
membered us with presents of grain, etc,
for which we are very thankful, but last
week We found s note in a box for the
carrier and inside was one of Uncle
Sam's greenbacks, with the following
verse. Every day yon come and go,
through sunshine rain or enow, whistling
a tune as yon go by, happy as a lark np
in the sky. I don't think he heard any
whistle Monday, as the .roads would
shake the whistle out of a bag pipe.

Joe Newell was found in an uncons
cious condition in his room at the Stalk
er Hotel last Sunday evening. He was
in the dining room of the hotel for
breakfast Sunday morning, and was not
seen again until a noise in his room at
tracted the attention of Landlord Stalk
er, who, after receiving no response
from Mr. Newell, forced the door open
and found him under the bed. Dr.
Williams was called and found the
patient suffering from a fit of some kind.
Mr. Newell returned from Iowa last
Saturday. In the evening complained
of not feeling well; said he bad the
Judge W. B. Neff, of Cleveland, who
granted 438 divorces at a recent term of
court over which he presided, aays:
"High prices, coupled with small in
comes, resulting in an intense struggle
to keep up appearances and gratifying
social ambition, are responsible for the
wrecking of a large number of homes.
What makes divorces frequent is the
fact that women now find it easy to be
financially independent of their husbands
Perhaps if we adopted the prudential
marriage system of Europe we would be
better off. Courtship in America is of
ten a mere social masquerade. Lovers
never see each other except when at
their best, end consequently the young
woman marries a hero and the young
man an angel, only to be disillusioned
shortly after the wedding day."

In order to reduce our stock of Winter Clothing quickly, we have made big reductions in prices on all our
Men's and Boys' Clothing. We have not been in the habit of putting on sales just to attract buyers, but
now we are going to give bargains that eclipse anything ever before offered in Columbus. Just think of the
high class merchandise we have to offer, compared with others. "Brandegee-Kincaid," "Adlers" and "Widow
Jones" clothes. Head and shoulders above all competition. Classy clothes that are in a class by themselves.
Handsome garments carefully tailored, swell fitting, unexcelled quality, and at their original price splendid
values. This is not a little handful of garments we tallr about, But a complete stock.

Merrick county will not build the
Havens bridge. That became a settled
question ibis week when the new board
of supervisors tabled tbe proposition.
By a decisive vote of 5 to 2 they decided
that there was no need for the bridge
and if the rama la destined to be built
at all hazards it will have to be done so
with the funds secured from private sub
scriptions and kept np from such funds.
Tbe action of tbe board will no doubt
settle a controversy that bss extended
over a period of about eighteen month'.
On roll call all of the members of th
