Judge Quartern on the Esthetville Saloons News of the Northwest. t>ea Molnes is having a flour war, Until skate falf time Washburn & Moen, the big Minneapolis millers, had the t)es Moinea business, But a big Des Moines firm bought a local mill Which had been standing idle, fitted it up, and submitted "Pi'tde of Des Moinei" flour to the state fair commit' tee and won first premium over the Minneapolis firm. They then handled their own flour exclusively and the retailers did likewise. The Washbui-n & Moen company thereupon put an agent of their own in Des Moines and are now selling their fancy patent flour at 80 cents a sack delivered at the kitchen, when their wholesale price on the cars at Minneapolis is 87i cents. They announce that they will continue to sell their flour at the present prices until the local merchants use it again. On the other hand the commercial exchange announces that it has 80 retail dealers handling the Des Moines flour and that they will continue to do so. Judge Quartern's Decision. Judge Quarton dismissed the injunctions against the Estherville saloons. The Vindicator says: " The coart in rendering his decision gave some lengthy and for the most part good advice to both parties in the suits. The prosecution he advised to be more conservative in future attempts against the saloons since they are so evidently a minority. The defense he advised to be more careful in living up to the law in the future, stating that it would not require so strong a case at another time to cause him to reverse his present decision." The Democrat says: The judge's talk in rendering the decision was fair to both sides and gave both parties valuable advise. Judge Quarton took the ground that where the violations were technical and not intentional they .ought not to be closed, and it was only when violations were of such' a character as to show an intentional violation of the law that the rigors of the law ought to be enforced against them. Will Be a One-longed Player. The facts about the shooting scrape, which takes a leg from Ames, the Forest City professional ball player, are that Ames and Holmes of Forest City came to the residence of Ole Nel- soji in Hancock county supplied with whiskey and beer for a big drunk. In some way a quarrel arose between them and Ole, and the shooting followed. Ames and Holmes were taken home and it was found that the bones of Ames' leg were so badly shattered above the knee that amputation was necessary. The Signal says: Ole came to Garner Thursday morning and gave himself up to the sheriff, but no information being filed and warrant issued, he was permitted to go home, The matter will probably be investigated by the next grand jury and just how much oussedness there was in the shooting will be shown up. Judge Thomas' Opinion, Judge Thomas does not like the code revision. In talking with the Dally Capital reporter be agreed with the general opinion that the commissioners have gone far beyond what the legislature intended they should do. Their work, Judge Thomas says, has been any thing but satisfactory, ."I don't know but the best plan would be to throw up^he whole business and ap. point a new qoromissJon, that might do the work as it should, The great Bomber of changes made will involve an enormous amount of litigation,^ and many of them are, so far as I pan see, wholly without benefit."

The successful treatment of consumption—and by this is meant making the sufferer better able to bear his burden, if not actually lifting it from his shoulders—is largely n question of nursing. If the disease has already gained a foothold medicine in most instances is of no avail except in postponing the evil day, and even if it were otherwise a few general rules would be just as essential to insure the comfort of the patient while recovery is going on. In the first place, then, we must understand exactly the condition of the consumptive, not so 'much by ascertaining the location and extent of his disease as by familiarizing ourselves with his temperament, his likes and dislikes, and,; above all, with his power of endurance and resistance. If we will bear these things in mind we may be able to do all that is possible for the sick one—namely, to enable him to withstand the onslaught of the disease until nature shall gain the controlling hand. So successful is this method of treatment that it often results in a complete or at least a temporary cure. Consumption is one of the most devitalizing of diseases. Not only does it attack the lungs, but the action of the nervous system is sooner or later seriously interfered with, the digestion impaired, and the simplest form of excitement renders even the circulation of the blood dangerous from being overaotive. We shall come nearest to striking at the root of all these troubles if we direct our energies toward limiting the frequency and severity of the cough, and in this we have not only to follow the advice of the physician, taking core that his directions are exactly carried out, put we must give careful attention to nursing. , To prevent the first paroxysm of coughing, which is usually incited in the morning by the exertion of .rising, a warm cup of tea or an eggnog should be taken before the patient leaves the bed, A glass of something warm, like hot milk or gruel, should also be taken before retiring, and plenty of time should be allowed in preparing for the ped. The patient should sleep in blankets, and a glass of warm drink should be placed within reach in case he should wake through the night, If the presence of food in the stomach causes the reappearance of the cough after meals* some suitable preparation of pepsin should be used, to hasten the digestion, and, an hour or two's rest should be taken immediately after the weal,--Tenth's Companion, AN AVENUE OF IDOUS, A P&&bje Bow at Jf»p»pege Buddha* Wbloh titWROt Be Cpuutea, •Close to this interesting pool is the avettue of images, representing the Amidtv Buddha.

He started from his home on Dane street, Albany, on the morning of April 10, 1878,'and arrived in San Francisco on the afternoon of Oct. 5 of the same year, being almost exactly 178.days (five hours and three minutes over) in performing the wearisome feat. Potter was a shoemaker, and the trip was the result .of a wager made by some friends who believed that such, a trip would occupy at least 800 days. The wager was $1,000, but Potter made between;three and five times that sum advertising for different parties along the route. The .wheelbarrow was made specially for the use to Which it'was put and weighed but 75 pounds. The distance traveled by Potter was exactly 4,085% miles.—St. Louis Republic.
