THE ETEKIKG GAZETTE: TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 14 1383. Frrtm floi'nil <^r»»v<*. Feb. 13.—Another frnity mnrninct; thft trepg and shrubbery beauUfuUy de- corated,remindinir us of Xinfjarn in hpr jflnrlons winter parb. The sleighing is fine here and every oro seems to be improving it. There was quite a little entertain" ment here last Friday afternoon. As Mr. Sara Greenawalt was hitching up hl3 horse preparatory to leaving for his home in Empire, just res he had one trace hooked, a freight train passing through frightened the horse, which jumping knocked Mr. Greenawalt over; "Sam" was soon on his feet again, and had hold of the horse, but not catching him by the bit was dragged about in such a lively manner he chose the better part of valor, and cared for number one. The horse ran south as far as the Hoover farm, when Mr. Fred Hessling, who saw it coming stopped it. The cutter was somewhat demoralized, but being his second best, and no damage done to himself or the horse, "Sam" thought he got off lucky; he borrowed a cutter and went on his way rejoicing, about an hour behind time. The ladies of the Union church here will give a rain-bow sociable to-morrow, Tuesday evening. An oyster suj>- per will be served. A cordial invilu- tion is extended to all. Mrs. Jas. W. Ewing received a telegram a few days since that her sister, Mrs. Jack Thompson, was dead. She had recently buried her son-in-law Mr. Knapp, and in caring for him during that severe weather she contracted a cold, which resulted in her sudden death. She removed from this township to Raymond, Dakota, two or three years since, and had many relatives* and friends to mourn her loss; but they have the blessed assurance that their loss is her gain, as she was one of the brightest examples of Christian womanhood. There is a bouncing baby boy at Mr. .las. 11. Wilson's; also a little daughter at Mr. Ed. Fellows, Congratulations for Ed. and Jim. Austin & Co. shipped some very tine hogs from this section last week. And Mr. Stewart Austin ia taking cattle in to Chicago to-night. OCCASION At.. From .Velnnn. Feb. 10.—Splendid sleighing. We had another of those cold snaps this week, mercury registering 24 below Wednesday a. m. and 128 below "Thursday a. m.; Friday somewhat milder and Saturday very pleasant, but the frost has crept into some of our neighbors' cellars, I understand, 1 and frozen their potatoes and canned fruit Mr. M. S. 13rierton and family are improving very slowly. Typhoid fever has left the father and two children very weak and with the greatest of 'care it will be some time before they will be themselves agulh. Mrs. A. H. Kelater is some better, but it seems aa though she improves very slowly. ' Miss Blanche Stitzel has been on the sick list this week, but is able to be around at this writing. Mrs. A. Facey, who has been visiting her sister, Mrs. A. Thorn, has been quite sick for several days, but is some better at this writing! The young folks of Xelsou and Kock Kails started out one evening this week to surprise David.Ilartman and wife but were about as much surprised themselves as Mr. and Mrs. Hartman were; for when they got there they came face to face with another party that was gotten up, in Dlron for the sume purpose. I understand it was H general surprise, as much s.o to the Nelson, Rock Falls and Dixon folks, us it was to Mr. and Mrs. Hartman; but they had a general good time and all enjoyed themselves. Mr. John Conard, conductor on the C. & N. W. R. R,, spent Sunday, at Mr'. Htltzel's. Mr. John Stitzel is one of the best and most successful farmers in tills vicinity and has one of the best producing farms. 'Mr. Stitzel deserves great praise for the high state of cultivation he keeps his farm in. One"of<Mr. A. Philip's cows broke through the ice in Rock River Saturday afternoon and it required the united force of four men and a team of horses to get her back on dry land again. The "critter" was almost frozen to death when taken out of the cold water, but they built a lire around her and brought her around. Everything sold well at Frank Btev- • en's sale thla week and some of his valuable stock was bought by parties in our town. Jesse Doniehy bought Henry Thorn's fine colt this week and is proud of his purchase. We are again reminded of this being leap-year when we see another ring on the fore linger, and still the wedding bells ring. CONDENSED NEWS.

Another prominent (American) author Ity ascribes pneumonia to an excess o o/.one, ozone being produced by passage of electricity in tlie air. A distinguished American physician tells the New York Tribune that the prevalence of pneumonia indicates the tin! versnlity of a uric-acid condition of the blood,—sudden chills always being char arleristic effects of too much acid, of one sort and another. The disease, ns M. .Taccond observes, Is undoubtedly in the blood, hut If in the form of permanent microbes or genus Ilic-'e perms must be developed by the uric-m id condition of the blood. Indeed they cnnnnt presumably exist in alkaline blood, ijflc-acld is the name for the waste matter of the system, which the kidneys, through evident though unsus- peclijd impairment, have not been able to filler from the blood,—the filter being foul and stopped up In many of Its little hnir-like tubes. The Tribune'* authority says that pneumonia is a secondary disorder, the ox- poMire and cold being simply the agents which develop tlie disease, already dor- mntil in the system, because the kidneys have been but partially doing their duty. In short, pneumonia is but an early imfl- calionof a bright'? diseased condition. This impaired action may exist for yo.p without the patient suspecting it, because no pnin will be felt in the Kidneys or their vicinity, and often It can be de- trrtud only by chemical and microscopl nil examinations. Nearly 150 of the 7-10 dcmlis in New York city the first week in n recent March, and In six weeks 7H1 dcnllis, were caused by pneumonia alone If one has occasional chills and fever, a tendency to colds in the throat and lungs, rheumatic mid neuralgic pains, e.x- li-euie tired feelings, short breath anc pleuritic stitches in the side, loss of appetite, back-ache, nervous unrest—scalding sensations or scant and discolored lluids, heart fluttering!!, sour ~stomnrli, distressed rook,, puffy eye sacs, hot ami dr,v skin, loss of strength and virility pneumonia is likely to strike him down any day, and his recovery will be doubtful'. ' • These indications may not appear together; they may come, disappear and ro- nppear, for years, the person not realizing that they are nature's warnings ol coming calamity. The disease is very quick-acting and ll the accompanying'kidney disorder In very far advanced, recovery is impossi bio, for the kidneys give out entirely, anc the patient, is literally suffocated by water The only safeguard against pneumonia Is to miiintftin a vigorous' condition (if i he system nnd thus prevent atlncks by using whatever will radically and ef- fiM-nmlly restore full vitality to'the kidneys, and for this liicre U nothing equal to Warner'tt safe cure. If the kidneys are not sound pneumonia cannot be prevented. This remedy is known to millions, used probably by hundreds ol thousands all over the globe, and com me.ndi'd as a standard specific wherever known and used. It does not pretend to cure ai) attack of pneumonia, but it does remove the cause of and prevent that disease if taken in lime. ; When a physician says his patient has either bright's disease or pneumonia, he confesses his inability to cure, and In a measure he considers his responsibility ended. In many instances, indeed, persons are reported as dying of pneumonia, heart disease, apoplexy and convulsions, when the real cause'of death, and so known by the physicians, Is this kidney consumption. Thousands of people have it without knowing It, and perish of 11 because their physicians will not tell them the facts. The same destiny awaits every one who,will not exercise his judgment in such a matter and be true to himself, his family and to society. Photographing th» Tomb of RameKm.

Produce: Wanted an Emy Chair. A Nashville furniture tleolor tells a little story Unit Hhows how home people are constituted. A lady ordered nn elegant easy chair of a peculiar kind. It was made and sent to her house. She examined It carefully and critically,.finally remarking Unit it suited her exactly, with one exception—It was too soft. She had tho man take the chair back to be made atrlllo harder. The chair was returned to the store and put.asido. Nothing was done to it. A fter the lapss of about a week the chair was sent out again. Tho woman again examined It, and this tima Uie chair wns too hard. She wa» sorry, but when she paid to much to get an article for her own comfort she wanted It about right, so she sent It back to the store for another change. The chair was again put aside for a week or ten days and Bent out for the third time without haying a particle of change made. ' This time it wa» jimt right. She took the chair, paid fur it, and was *orry it had not suited htr at first. The poor woman naver knew that the chair had not been changed a particle,—Chicago News. Otur JL«rge*t ClUn.

HIIOP OPPOM1TK POHT OBI FOIIHTII HTRRKT WHY DOES not some manufacturer make a soap that is cheap in price, and good in quality, has often been asked. Tlir.t question has been practically answered by Messrs. N. K. Fairbank & Co., of Chicago, who have happily combined quality and cheapness in the Santa Claus Soap. It washes so well and so easily, that it wil 1 not make the weekly washing A CAT astrophe to be dreaded. Santa Claus Soap has been thoroughly tested, and for all kinds of washing, whether linens or laces, dishes or clothes, floors or curtains, knives or sheets, woolens or cottons, it has no equal, and—it is cheap. If you do not want to DIB before your time and have life go HARD while you live, avail yourself of whatever lightens nnd facilitate! labor. A good soap is a household necessity. Wherever Santa Claus Soap has been sold, the testimony is the same, viz.:— "it is the best." Your grocer is an enterprising man and probably has Santa Claus Soap; if he hasn't he'll get it for you. .
