Additional subscriptions were secured, several parties doubling their subscriptions.

Segers treasurer. A number of papers were read, all of Interest to the profession. The Association adjourned to meet at Sterling in April next. —Mrs. S. A. Harden is as widely and favorably known as any lady In Sterling. After 82 years effective businessjshe decided that she was entitled to a rest, a decision that her family and friends heartily concur in: BO she has sold out her millinery. Mra. Harden will carry with her in her withdrawal from business the earnest and best wishes of her hosts of friends for many years of restful' enjoyment In the bosom of her family. —Mrs. John N. BteveriS had a paralytic stroke at midnight and died at 2 o'clock this morning. Mrs. Steven's maiden name wai Annie Patterson (slater of Miss Sade Patterson) and she leaves a husband and two daughters, both grown. One of the daughters, Mrs. Fred Baldwin, lives in Washington Territory, the other, Miss EMa, Is at Kansas City. , Mrs. Stevens had a atroka of paralysis last year, but had apparently recovered from the attack, and her attack last night was sudden and unexpected. Mrs. Stevens was a most estimable and good woman, whose death, brings Badness; to the hearts of her many friends* —Here is an old fact that may be of value in this cold weather: Take some newspapers.and paste them together about the size of a coveilit or quilt; then past together some raore of the same siie. Then lay one of them upon the other and paste their edges together. Take the papers thus pasted and place them between your blankets and lullt and you will have added moie warmth than 1» contained in a double blanket. If one finds hts bed cold and particularly if he feels too | oor to buy on extra quilt or blanket, he can do aa we suggest above, and he will have I gained more warmth to his bed than aay single or double blanket can po»sl lily impart. Dou't throw this aside; but reiu'suiboJC U; for Umu may come when ib* koowtod** will b« valuable loreo. —Without exception the moat scoun- drelly extortion in.America or out of it is that effected by the anthracite coal combine. About eight men control and own the whole output of this necessity. They divids up the carrying privilege between seven railroads. Once a year these nabobs meet In New YorK city, and over champagne, brandy, Havana cigars, and richest foods > determine how much coal shall be mined. Last year they hit upon 35,000,000 tons aa the amount. This was about hall their capacity and it meant that thousands of poor miners should be out of work a good part of the time. But what do they care for the miners? The reduction in yield enabled them to double profits. The result upon the country at large is that poor people have to economize In its use and many's the house that is never comfortably warmed In cold weather, because coal costs 39.50 this winter. The eight princely hut scoundrelly owners Of the anthracite coal Interest will find themselves in a place where one man controls the heating supply and who is by no'meanFnlggaraiy 7 ln~UiniBe7~if -Tifie Bible Is correct. And no men in all this world so richly merit the fires of Gehenna as they who combine to exact extortion from that which IB needed to give health and comfort to Che widow and the orphan and the poor of the land. Shame upon the great State of Pennsylvania that it does not legislate the price of coal at the mine and the carrying price of cars. Would that natural gas might spring up In effusive quantity wherever hard coal is used, that the necessity for using it might no longer exist. Such men as these coal mine owners can only be brought to grief through their pockets, and if their coal ceased to be in demand, they'd be broken-hearted. Ol course, local dealers are no more responsible for these high prices than we are who are consumers. The coal barons extort the price from them and they make but a moderate proilt. . —Thinking of the progress of prohibition in some parts and in the various parts of the United States, we are reminded that there are two rlasses of people In North Carolina who yet have given no thought to the subject. A paper of last year published near the coast contains an advertisement calling for ditchers and promising them 75 cents in money and three drinks of whiskey per day as wages. Another paper has advertised "fishermen wanted." -There the compensation Is scarcely so great, but the stipend of whisky is greatly increased. Talk with either of these classes of men and they will tell you that the nature of their business demands the use of the fiery liquid. The ditchers dig with spade and shovel and they are wet above their knees ten hours a day. The fishermen are men who work from Feb. 10 to May 10 at great fisheries (the seines from one mile to two miles In length) eight hours on and eight hours off night and day Sundays included. They are wet to their, middles nearly the whole of that time, In a raw and most frequently damp atmosphere. During February it often happens that their clothes freeze in the chill north wind. When the seines are brought in near shore, they must wade out to meet an'd keep it down that the fish may not escape. When through with their eight hours work and had thtir drinks, they usually arercoo Uifcd^to undress (some have scarcely > jk'change of garments) and so they fall down upon their rough beds in their wet garments. Owners of the fisheries have sought to do away with the dram ration, but unavailingly. It is a hard, exposed life, and there is plenty of disease among these men and mortality is sufficiently great for the prohibitionist to find agreement that the spirit rations shorten their days upon the earth. We refer to the custom as one so strange in these days of advanced thought and practice touch- lug the. use of ardent spirits. Up north here, whisky ia about the last thing an employer would give his em- ployes. —A friend sends us a copy of the Sioux City, Iowa, Journal, containing a long and vivid account of a sand blizzard at Los Angeles, and the writer ot the article, who was then at Los Angeles, didn't know but he dreaded one of these chill visitations with the air charged witl> the silica thick as when the simoom sweeps over Sahara and robs whole caravans of their lives, even more than one of our blizzards, when air is loaded with snow pellets: the latter do not cut as the former. Aa the stories of Southern California real estate agenu are sifted down, and as men go out to see for themselves, they become more and more persuaded that the facts touching that country as told in the GAZETTE are facts, indeed. The garden of Hesperides, the Enchanted Valley, aye, even the Garden of Eden were miserable places compared with southern California. If money didn't grow upon trees, it was so plentiful that men could la a short time, cord it up, according to a letter from .a real estate agent to the editor of the GAZETTE. All of these stories told well on paper. The real estate agents of southern California bought up newspapers out there and bought space in eastern magazines, and what was and is in fact a western edge of the American desert waa made to appear more fertile than the land of Promise where grew the grapes of Escbol aud other luscious fruits. Glorious Damascus, oldest of cities In 1U greatest day of fume, beauty was as nothing to Los Angelea county. ;As for health, why doctors starved to death there and no undertaker could be found. A drug store waa unknown. The preachers were afraid the people would give up their religion because the fear o^ death wfM removed. It waa literally a place where waa uo sorrow and no tears, DO slefcaeM, no patii and DO doath. The lir w*» &!w*y» balmy and th« days and night* wtr+ae. Bat the truth in out and it is at lait discovered that cemeteries exist there and that doctors fepep bimy, and that it sometimes blows hot there and sometimes cold; and, indopd, that southern California is commonplabe, having Its advantages and disadvantages, just as all other places, and with no more of the former than pertains to most localities and with leas than pertains to many. Jacob is the only man who saw heaven let down upon earth, and that was at Bethel, in the wilderness. Los Angeles real estate men saw It, too,—In their eye. But the heaven was for them, only; big boom In real estate, sell out and clear out. Their victims would see and catch a touch of the other place. Go to t?io Boston Storn. I A-conflict for possession.
