CLIPPED FROM OUR
land along which the eidcwnlk runs, will
join in the expense of a good and per
manent walk at this place mid each hear
an equal amount of the expense. It
would be an injustice to Mr. Eckholt to
force him to put in this sidewalk, as it
would probably cost more than the land
iB worth. There is a question too as to
whether a property owner can be forced
to put in a walk of this kind.

The village of Platte Center had a very
spit u less election Tuesday. Two mem
bers of the board of trustees had to be
elected, but same as two years ago, no
one seemed to take enough interest to
see that a ticket was nominated, so the
tickets were printed blank and voters
had to write in the names of those they
wished to vote for. Notwithstanding
this state of affair 1(X! votes were cast,
the largest number in the history of the
village. And there was evidently pre
concerted action, as Henry Hitrke and
12. W. Hoare each received (m votes, J.
K. Malier received :l and 1. .!. lliley
js. Three ballots were thrown out for
irregularity, and the balance of the total
were scattering. Burke was re-elected.
The board for the ensuing year will be

about a hen that was buried in their
corn crib last fall, and this week, as he
was passing by the crib he happened to
see the hen through the crocks ami get

ook her out. He says there could have
ben no other way for her to get in
there, only by being covered up as they
tilled the crib last fall. She hud eaten

feathers sticking straight oat How is
this for a hen story ?
Tuesday a village election was out of
the ordiniry for Monroe in fact not in
a number of years has the contest been
so hot. And it was not for members of
the village board, as there were only
three candidates, and contrary to the
usual custom, no names were written on
the ballots. The tight was on the pool
hall, and those against it carried their
campaign so far that it reacted, and the
majority for the proposition was larger
than it would otherwise been. There
were titi votes cast. 42 for the pool hall
and 24 against. The three trustees,
Howard J. Hill, Wm. Sigea and John
Gibbon, each received GO votes, about
four or Dve of those who voted declining
to vote for trustees, but voting against
the pool hall proposition. There are
a number who'were not strongly oppos
ed to having the pool ball, conducted as
it has been during the last year, and
much preferred it to the secret gambling
which it has beeu responsible for stop
ping. The judges and clerks of election
were: Clerks. J. C. Bead. C. W. Hol
lingshead; judges, Hugh Hill ,J. E. Dack
and . W. Mann.

Isn't it fanny bow somo men can draw
money for doing a little work and more
money for keeping still.

Friday morning of last week the
hearts of the board of directors of the
Schuyler Library were rande glad by the
receipt of a letter from Andrew Carnagie
stating that he would be more than
pleased to give them nine thousand dol
lars fcr a library building. Isn't that
great news? About a month ago a com
mittee of the library board asked the
city council to make a levy of two mills
for maintenance of such a proposed
building- it was granted. Mr. Carnagie
was immediately notified of the board's
action and a request made that he bnild
us a library. As the city levy is about
nine hundied dollars we get a building
costing that many thousand. At the
present time the liuard are investigating
a suitable site There are about three
under consideration aud it may be but
a short time until it is selected and turn
ed over the city council for acceptance.

IT GROWS HAIR.
Here Arc Facts We- Want You To
Prove At Our Risk.
Marvelous as it may seem. Ilexall
'9:j"' Hair Tonic has grown hair on
heads that were ouce bald. Of course,
in n(.ne of these cases were the hair
roots dead, nor had the scalp taken on
a glazed, shiny appearauce.
Kexall "03" Hair Tonic acts scienti
fically, destroying the germs which are
usually responsible for baldness. It
penetrates to the roots of the hair
stimulating and nourishing them. It
is a most pleasant toilet necessity, is
delicately perfumed, and will not gum
or permanently stain the hair.
Wc want you to get a bottle of Ilex
all "1)3'' Hair Tonic and use it as direct
ed. If it does not relieve scalp irrita
tion, remove dandruff, prevent the hair
from falling out and promote an in
creased growth of hair, and in every
way give entire satisfaction, simply
come back and tell us, and without
question or formality we will hand back
to you every penDy you paid us for it.

URGES MUSIC IN THE HOME
Ethical Culture Man Would Have Chil
dren Begin by Learning to Play
on the Diahpan.
A member of the faculty of the Eth
ical Culture school of New York urges
the development of music in the home
by unusual though simple means. He
would have the growing child learn to
play upon his mother's dlshpan as an In
troduction to the keyboard of the pla
ao, and graduate from thrumming upon
a rubber hand to the strings of a vlo
ub. He mentioned also the triangle
and the xylophone as examples of the
more primitive instruments a child
rould learn to play, and he might have
extended the list with the instruments
employed in the kinder-symphony the
cuckoo, the water whistle, tho watch
nan's rattle and the other diminutive
editions of the cacophonous Inventions
of Richard Strauss.
To carry the Idea further, a child who
has the laudable ambition to become
the tympanlst In a symphony orchestra
might be taught to drum on the win
dow pane on rainy days; he should be
fed on drumsticks; he is to be encour
aged to practice the reveille and the
rataplan with his knife and fork on the
pdge of the table. Hereafter judicious
parents will not throw away empty to
mato cans, for, given a stout bit of
twine and a piece of rosin, their nolse
maklng possibilities are almost Infinite.

RESULTS OF A WRONG DIET

body, and all the manifold names it
bears serve merely to distinguish tho
different conditions arising from this
common cause. The locality, charac
ter and state of these accumulations
may give rise to the most varying
symptoms, disordering tho blood, re
tarding the changes of the tissues,
clogging the joints. Irritating tho
