Mrs. W. W. Wilson was called to Traer, Iowa, by telegram to attend the bedside of her sister who was dying on Friday last. Our eye happened to catch an e'nve- lope bearing the firm name of Jordan & Walters, grain commission merchants, Chicago. E. L. Ward and wife and Alma Smith started for Omaha, Neb., where y will stop and visit friends there on their way to C. L. Ostrander was up from Burt on Sunday. F. II. Vesper and wife were in town last Wednesday. Geo. Blanchard was down from Elmore last Saturday. Geo. Coffin of Burt was up between trains last Saturday. Miss Adda Davison visited friends in Burt last Saturday. Wm. Peck of Fenton was a Bancroft visitor last Saturday. Miss Mamie Scully gave music lessons in town last Saturday. Painter Breen of Wesley was visiting his old haunts here last week. C. Ej Mallory drives a spanking new team of trotters that are well blooded. W. L. Joslyn, the county expounder • of Blackstoue, was in town last Sabbath. , John Sullivan the fast horse man has been suffering from boils on his neck lately. What a fool a drunken man can make of himself was suggested to us last Saturday. Ed Seymour and wife of Ramsay are visiting friends in that good old New England state, Connecticut. Geo. Graham's family are happy on the arrival of a good looking young . lady at their home one day last week. B. F. Grose contemplates quitting the barber trade as he feels too proud to work since the arrival of that girl baby at his house a week ago today. Volume one Number one of the Elmore Eye comes to hand and proves to the public that Editor Harding can get out a neat and spicy sheet. The club dancers had another one of their pleasant social times at their hall last Friday night. They now have thirty members at $3 apiece. T. H. Cruse and little son, Seymour, went to Chicago to visit the former's sister at that place and from thence they will go to Freeport, 111., to visit with Mr. C's parents. The Misses Lou and Annie Hunt of Eamsay returned last Saturday from a three weeks visit to Livermore where 5 - they had been visiting their sister and "brother-in-law Mr. and Mrs. P. B. A pleasant surprise party was perpetrated upon Bufus Evans by his young friends in town last Monday evening. They started about 7:30 and and after a jolly sleigh ride of half a mile they repaired to the house where a very pleasant time was had with social conversation, music, games and last but not least a bountiful luncheon. May the number of such good times increase. \ Here we give the I. O. G. T. program for January 23d. Instrumental musici' Lela Davison; recitations, Orvel Ostander, Lewis Gray; reading, Mabel Johnson, J. A. Freeh; song, Carl Ost- •ander; debate: "Resolved that the inventions of the past fifty years have fcow New York's Wealthy Men Bldo Houic At least 100 cabmen earn a living by driving Wall street men up town after the close of/business hours. A large proportion of these cabmen wait patiently in Broad street for hours. Occasionally they will get half a dozen farea in a day, but more frequently they get one or two. Most of them are veterans in the business, and some of them have their regular customers, whom they serve from one year's end to another. In observing the class of men who ride up town in cabs, one fact will strike the observer forcibly, and that is that the men who indulge in the luxury of a cab after leaving their offices are not the rich men of Wall street!" To be sure, most of the cab patrons are men who make mSney, but they are not notable figures in the financial world, and their incomes are not oppressively large. Among the men who ignore the cabby's plaintivo plea, and take either the Broad way cars or the elevated trains, are found nearly all of the noted millionaires. Jay Gould and his sons, George and Edwin, invariably travel on the Sixth avenue elevated road. Occasionally George walks the whole or part of the way home. C. P. Huntington reaches his home in Park avenue via the Third avenue elevated, and frequently he has J. Pierpont Morgan for a fellow passenger. D. O. Mills, hale and vigorous, enjoys a stroll up Broadway. Some, times he rides in a street car and sometimes on the elevated. Mr. Jesse Seligman and his brother James usually Beware of Ointipents for Catarrh that contain Mercury, as mercury will surely destroy the sense of smell and completely derange the whole system when entering it through the mucous surfaces. Buch articles should never be used except on proscriptions from reputable physicians, as the damage they will do is ten fold to the good you can possibly derive from them. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co.,Toledo, O., contains no mercury, and is taken internally, and acts directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. In buying Hall' Catarrh Cure be sure you get the genuine. It is taken internally, and made in Toledo, Ohio, F. J. Cheney & Co. Sold by Druggists, price 75c. per bottle.

Apropos to the general discussion of the probabilities of the. repeal of the prohibitary law woulden't it be quite a victory for the prohibitionists if the Supreme Court of the U. S. should declare that the prohibitory law was a part of the constitution. Judge Harvey of Des Moines has retained some of the ablest counsel to be had to bring the question up and Good Tem- plars, the Temperance Alliance and other temperance societies are giving liberally of their cash to pay the expenses of the prosecution of their claims in the highest tribunal of the land. It was fairly made a part of the .constitution, and it would be a serious joke on the hostile anti-legislature if they found that they could not repeal the law. An Improvement In Valve Packing. For a considerable time the Old Colony railroad has had in use a piston valve packed with Tripp's packing, this device, according to the report, giving no trouble from leakage, which is the great objection to the plain piston valve. The port does not have to be bridged, the packing being such that it cannot fall That can't he beat. The Capital City Commercial College I and The Capital City School of Short- . hand, Des Moines, Iowa. The leading Always neat and clean and cheap as the cheapest. , schools of commerce in the west. If you out or catch on the edges, of the port, and to give a still larger area of port opening with the same travel of valve. a square piston valve has been devised. The latter is sixteen inches wide and about three inches high, and for a certain width of opening admits steam past the upper and side edges as well as the seat opening, thus more than doubling the area of opening for the same travel of valve. This applies as well to the exhaust as the steam edge, giving a quick release as well as admission of steam. Being of the piston type, the valve is balanced, and, to keep it steam tight, is packed on top and at the sides. The packing is an inch thick all around, and, as it is held out by springs, an ^pxcess of pressure in the cylinders will; cause the valve to lift from the seat, acting as a relief into the chest. This device, therefore, is said to possess all the advantages of the simple slide valve, and in addition practically double ported and balanced. —New York Sun. wish to succeed in business life, you should prepare for it.
