A long petition will be circulated at once in town for signatures, and will be sent later. The Brownell clearing sale of shoes is attracting custom from all over.

Call at Sioux City, The Courier was mistaken in stating that Mr. Sessions will be missed. The colonel took his furniture with him, and everybody hopes that he will seek a new field and adopt a new course in life. He has too many good qualities to make a total failure.

The mountain ie 6,000 feet high, the trail is eight miles from the bottom to the top, and before w.o got half way we found snow and indulged in an old fashion snow ball and face washing. It was quite a change after passing through orange orchards laden with fruit in tho valley at the foot of the trail." Teachers' Meeting.

Are you satisfied to stay in the rut with them and wait a week or a month for a cure that can be accomplished in a few hours by Orloff's Russian Grippe, Cough, and Cold Cure? If you are, Orloff's won't suit you. It is too quick. Glenwood, Minn., April 10, 1807. A friend in New Yprk wrote me to give the new remedy, Orloff's Russian Grippe Cure, a trial for a cough that had been troubling me for months, and which several physicians had failed to cure.
