Iron la the fighting element in the blood, and the kind of Iron supplied by Dr. Ilar-ter'a Iron Tonic la just, the kind the system requires to successfully combat malarial conditions.

Don't wait until you are attacked. Take It now and fortify yourself, It la an absolute safeguard and, at the same time, It la the beet tonic and Invigorant for the entire system. On the other hand, quinine disturbs the system and its cumulative poison begets greater physical troubles than those It is employed to remedy. here a bad case of chronic Malaria already exists, take DK.

Now, what ia Korea going to do about it if Russia refuses to atop? Ia Korea backed up by England or Japan? And will it not be as unfortunate to be eaten up by one of those countries as by the Russian bear? The Koreans do not amount to much, though.

He can measure the distances of the stars and tell when they will arrive at a certain lo cality. There are a lot of things that he can do, but after all, man doesn't know much as compared with what there ia still to find out. Man ought to understand the causes, of rains and drouth, of winda and calms, and know how to control them. The fortunate individual who Uvea long enough in the future will know ao much more than the wisest of the present genera tion that the philosopher and scientist of this day will seem like 30 cents by comparison. Women as Well as Men Are Made Miserable by Kidney Trouble.

Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, discourages and lessens ambition; beauty, vigor ana cheerfulness soon 60 disappear when the kid-wst" neys are out of order or diseased. Kidney trouble has become so prevalent I that is not uncommon for a child to be born afflicted with weak kid neys. If the child urinates too often, if the urine scalds the flesh or if, when the child reaches an age when it should be able to control the passage, is yet afflicted with bed-wetting, depend upon It. the cause of the difficulty is kidney trouble, and the first step should be towards the treatment of these Important organs. This unpleasant trouble Is due to a diseased condition of the kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as most people suppose.

Women as well as men are made mis erable with kidney and bladder trouble, and both need the same great remedy.

Thornton's residence, on the 18th inst. Exercises to commence at 8 o'clock. The pupils and teach ers of Okolona, especially, and the pnblic generally are respect fully invited to attend. The last Pontotoc Examiner contains some resolutions adopted by the patrons of the school at Oak Hill, Pontotoc county, denouncing a Mr. C.

W. McNeil, a teacher in said school, and holding him up to pnblic scorn and scrutiny, for certain acta and "violations of the moral trust re posed in him towards some of his female pupils." Pass him around. "The weather, oh the weath er!" Okolona will Justly become famous for the' rains which seem to be so fond of visiting us. We like a little rain, but not too much, and caa find something congenial to our spirit in the following, written by some rain detesting, cloud hating poet: "I bate to see the darkest aide; I bate to be complaining. But bang me If my temper stands This raining, -raining, raining: Candidates.

To the other candidates for the various offices in this county, we would say that the Prairie News having the largest circulation, of any paper in the county, is the most desirable means of letting the people know you are a candidate. Send up your announcements only five dollars in advance. Bloody Affray.

On Wednesday evening last, just on the aarival of the cars, an unfortunate affray occurred atthe depot, between two citizens of this place, Mr. Beuben Clopton and Mr. Lewis Ethridge, which resulted in the death of the former. There seems ta have been a difficulty of long standing between the parties, and on the very day Mr. Clopton bad been put under bond to keep the peace.

As we have heard. the fight began by an attack be ing made by Mr. Clopton upon Mr. Ethridge with a stick. Macon Btar.

Cowards have done good and kind actions cowards have even fought, nay, sometimes conquered, bat a coward never forgave; it is not ia his nature, the power of doing it flows only from a strength and greatness of soul, conscious of its own force sad security, and above all the little temptations of resonticg every fruitless attempt to interrupt his happiness. i Years Ago Improvements. At last something like public spirit seems to animate the stubborn, selfish, stingy people of Okolona. They are awakenjng to a sense of their duty in regard to the things which call for the loos ening of their purse strings. The conscientious grip with which they clutch the dollar is relaxing, and the' result is, changes are worked in the appearance of the places of public worship, both creditable to the members of the churches and to the town itself.

The Episcopal church has been painted and refitted in a style that would reflect credit to a much greater number of members than it has, and is an ornament of which a larger town than Okolona might weir be proud. The Methodist church, also, has been painted and otherwise greatly improved. It is no praise to say, this town owes to Messrs. Gibson and Walker, of the Episcopal and Methodist churches, a debt of gTatitude which it can never cancel. It must indeed be a pleasure to these gentlemen to look and see the work they were most instrumental in bringing about.

The members of the various denominations were, of course, the ones who contributed the means to defray the expenses all honor to the liberal spirit which prompted this; but these clever, energetic pastors were the ones to start and keep the ball moving. We learn with pleasure the Missionary Baptist church will soon be repaired and painted. "Improvement is stamped on the wings of time." Let us have respectable looking churches and then fix up the grave yard. Never stop. It will require only a very small sum of money to enclose this "resting place of the departed," and it ought and must be done.

If we are too poor to have an iron railing, let a temporary plank fence be put up. It will keep the hogs from rooting up the graves and overturning the stones. There are always some things aboot a growing town that call for the exercise of public spirit, and if people expect to live without giving anything to improve and ornament their town, they ought to move in the woods, beyond the precincts of civilization. So say we, and so will say all who have any pride. worst of ail Experiences.

Caa anything be worse than to feel that ever minute will be your last? Soch was the experience Mrs. S. H. Fewson, Decatur, Ala. "For three she writes, "I endured insufferable pain from indigestion, stomach and bowel trouble.

Story of Effectual Calling. The minister of New St. k.n-A drew's church in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, bad offered a prize to a class of young girls iu his Sunday school who would repeat from memory the whole of the Shorter Catechism, says the Scottish American. Several of them were careful and received the prize. very shortly after the minister, Mr.

Robertson, received a call from a congregation in Newfoundland, which he accepted. He was gone for three years and then came back on a visit. At the home of one of his old parishion ers he met the young girl who received the first piize now crown up into a young lady, fresh "from the Ladies' College and while she was entertaining the company with classical selections on the ptano, Mr. Robertson stopped her and said: "Now, missy, I fear that with all this you have forgot ten fie catechism. I will ask you a lew questions, what is 'effect ual calling! "Effectual call ing!" said she, hesitating but a moment.

"Why, it was the call you received from Newfoundland." Curtain.
