A now solution of the difficulty In se curing a crossing at the water mill over the railway trucks was offered last week in the petition presented to the county board by Wm. Dodds and 64 signers from north of town aa follows: Wo, the undersigned, petitioners residing north of Algona, would respectfully represent that the only road into Alffoim from the north is one which crosses the Milwaukee railway tracks at grade; that said crossing is dangerous to life and property. It having been shown that a roud of much easier grade can bo made by going under tho tracks through the big hill, Immediately south of tho water mill, thence south to .Tones street, We ask you to take such stops as may be necessary to lay and open said road. The board after some discussion passed the following resolution turning the whole matter over to tho city council and agreeing to co-oporato in any feasible plan: Resolved, That tho petition of Wm. Dodds, et al. for the location of a highway running south from the water mill and pass- Ing under the Milwaukee railway track, be respectfully referred to the city of Algoua with the recommendation that in tho interest of safety to tho travelling public some less hazardous crossing should bo provided or that the railway company should bo required to keep a flagman at tho present crossing. And the ooard of supervisors hereby pledge the county to assist in tho expense of any change in the present crossing, which will furnish safety to the travol- ingpublic. This j-oad petitioned for would cut through under the track in the gorge east of tho mill and bring tho road up through the Call estate pasture to tho street running east and west by Thos. Lantry's home. There can be no doubt a good road mado there, as there is an easy grade to tho Free Methodist church, and teams for the depots would jet out by a shorter route. A difficulty that has been suggested is the fact that ihe railway company would undoubled- y light a crossing there Unless the irescnt crossing were abandoned and :.hat would mean that Thorington and Hall streets would end in a pocket, and that the travel would all bo turned iway from the west part of town. Giving up Thorington street would also mean giving up a well graded and easy iscent, which has cost considerable money, while grading a new road from the mill would be fairly expensive. The city council will no doubt investi- ^te this proposal carefully at its coming meeting, and take some action as suggested by tho county board. Lcnruod Men OUugroe. That even honest doctors may sometimes disagree is nu evident fact, and in literature as in medicine there are two sides to a shield. When Professor E. H. Palmer was teaching oriental languages at Cambridge university, England, he received a note, badly written and incorrectly spelled, asking if ho could "read tho inclosed document." The document proved to bo a paper written in Persian, and presented no difficulty whatever to the professor, who sent it back, saying that it was a warrant or ticket for certain goods, setting forth in tho name of Allah the quantity, quality and make of the stuff. A day or t\vo afterward another letter came from the same correspondent. It contained a ten pound note and tho words: DEAII SIK—Iluorajr foroUlUnmbrliletut This was what tho Oxford chap Bald It was. "This" proved to be a copy of the "Oxford chap's" translation. "This very curious and most interesting document," he wrote, "appears to be a copy of an ancient Persian inscription, probably taken from a tomb or a triumphal column. It is, however, very'in- complete, It reads as follosvs: 'In the name of God, This was erected by [name uncertain] in the year [uncertain], It is one thousand four hundred and eevonty-five long and seven hundred and thirty broad, and it'— Here the manuscript abruptly ends," — Youth's Companion. The Jewels of a Sulnt. The idea of sanctity usually carries with it a suggestion of poverty, and it may seoin a contradiction to refer to the jewels of a saint. It has been customary for painters who choose for their subjects saints or martyrs to treat them with the utmost simplicity, Jn a majority of cases they are depicted as devoid of ornament or decoration, and in the few exceptional instances, as when the subject of the picture is a ruler or king, the gems are few and purely symbolic, being sufficient only to denote the rank of the individual portrayed. Raphael, who was perhaps the greatest painter of religious subjects the world has known, has in most of his works adhered strictly to this rule, but in the head of "St. Cecilia" is to be noticed a departure from it. A row of pearls, to which are attached three pendants, ornamenta her gown at the neck, and this is her only jewelry. The hair is simply arranged and without a jewel of any kind. The single row of gems, themselves the emblems of chastity, emphasizes the exquisite simplicity of the face.—Jewelers' Weekly. An Unpardonable Offsuse.

"Those who know Mr. Emerson best," laid Miss Louisa.. M. Alcott, "Were as sured that what seemed the decline of his faculties in his latter years was largely but a seeming, it was only words he could not command at will, His very forgetfulness of the names of things would often give occasion for a flash of his quaint, shrewd wit. I remember once he started for his usual walk, when a light shower came up, and he returned for his umbrella. "He could not remember the word umbrella, and we, who had not noticed the shower, had no clew to what he waa searching for. Another walking stick was brought him, another hat, a fresh 'kerchief, only to bo refused with that perplexed shake of the head. 'I want,' said he at last— '1 want—that thing— that your friends always—borrow—and never—bring back I 1 Could any one fail to recognize that description?"—Boston Transcript, Ovcroxorclse. Physicians are protesting against the overexercise taken by the slender, high strung people who would better be hold-* ing on to what little flesh they have, while it is next to impossible to stir up the lazy, heavy class to exert themselves enough to relieve them of their superfluous bulk. Nature does not safely guide us in this particular. Thin people are moved to be active and fleshy people to be lazy. The case calls for use of that brain power that plans and reasons and proves us higher than the monkey,— Newport News. Ills Lordship's Weight. The present Earl Granvillo, some years since, when Lord Leveson, swallowed half a crown during the performance of some conjuring trick at a Christmas party. He was none the worse for the misadventure, although the family were somewhat alarmed at first. The late earl, on being asked after his son's health, told Lord Rowton that he had gained eleven pounds. "Ahl" replied the witty peer, "that makes £11 2s. Od."—London Tit-Bits. Fine Threads. If 3'our uerves were steady enough to admit handling the silkworm's threads and you were to take a carpenter's rule and lay such threads side by side until they covered the space of an inch, you would find after completing the task that you had handled exactly 1,009 threads.—St. Louia Republic. A Ilalnninkor to Ho Depended Upon. Frederick W. Root is a good deal of a hoodoo. He gracefully acknowledges tho charge himself. It is a singular fact that whenever he appears to deliver a lecture tho rain begins to fall. He is so good a rain producer that he haa seriously considered tho idea of utilizing hifl talents for that purpose in the arid regions of the west. While at Silver Lake Assembly, in New York state, he delivered a lectured on musical tastes or a kindred subject. He had delivered the same lecture a half dozen times in the west, and the refreshing shower came along each time before he had half finished it. But when he reached the Silver Lake Assembly grounds the sky was bright, and Mr. Root congratulated himself upon having shaken off his evil spirit. Ho mounted tho rostrum, cleared his throat, and when ho had got as far aa "Friends and fellow citizens" tho rumble of distant thunder grated harshly upon his ears. Yet he gathered up his courage and went on, and before ho had delivered a quarter of his lecture tho rain came down in torrents. "Indeed," said Mr. Root, "I never saw it rain so hard before," After the address a witty young Chicago woman who knew of the hoodoo business suggested, for the convenience of tho public, that next year Mr. Root should write a lecture upon a dry subject.—Chicago Post. btrutouy. Small Boy— Mamma wants you to send her up two barrels of those apples she was lookin at. Dealer — All right, sonny. "Say, couldn't you pour the two barrels into one big barrel?" "Eh? What for?"

Clifford, of New Castle, Wis., was troubled with neuralgia and rheumatism, his stomach was disordered, his liver was affected to an alarming: degree, appetite fell away, and he was terribly reduced in flesh and strength.
