Every hole represented a bullet fired from the guns of the Indians." Mr. and Mrs. Mercer never had any children. They lived a quite but very happy Hie. Mrs. Mercer was a woof many grand qualities, and she never permitted any suffering to go on about her if she was in a position to check it.

Information reached me that Australian rabbits are being kept as pets in this and other sections of the State. I feel it my duty to call the attention ot those owning these apparently harmless little creatures to their wonderful powers of destruction and the rapidity with which they increase in numbers. The female brings forth her young, 4 to 6 in number, every mouth. It can easily be seen that a single pair turned loose ould in a year or two make themseves felt in tbat section and would rapidly spread to adjoining sections. They are especially destructive to young orchards and garden crops Being a burrowing anlt mat it is an easy matter for them to tunnel underneath the enclosure intended for their confinement. The English sarrow nuisance from which we are no suffering should serve cs on object lesson against the importation of any more foreign pests. The publication of the monthly crop reports will close with this Issue until the opening of the growing season next spring.

There exists among women who are much in society a form of weariness resulting from overtaxed nerves, more Intense and depressing than any known to tired muscles. The overcrowded lives of srch women make them slaved ot anxieties and annoyances which they cannot ignore. The following letter from one of New York's busiest hostesses shows how implicity Palne's celery compound is relied on among the most intelligent, families as well as in the many more ho ruble house-- , holds all over the country. New York City, Oct 9, 1897. Gentlemen I think it but fair to you that I bear testimony to the bene, ficlal results of my use of Paine's celery compound. Two years ago I was almost a wreck from nervous prostration, resulting from overwork, mental and physical. I had lost my memory completely, and friends feared I would never recover. After trying several remedies to no avail, my physician prescribed Palne's celery compound, and within a few days there was a decided im provement in my condition. After the use of three bottles I was so much better that it was unnecessary for me to continue its use. Since then I have recommended It widely, and have yet to hear that it has failed to do all that I claim for it. well-to-do ... .. ... ... wonder-worke- To any one suffering from any of the ill attendant upon continued loss of sleep I can and do heartily recommend it. Very truly yours. Mayrae L- Haines. , In all cases ot nervous prostration, nervous indigestion, neuralgia, sleeplessness, hysteria or incessant headaches, the objective point ot a true remedy like Paine's celery compound is to make more blood, gather flesh and increase the number ot red, health-givincorpuscles in the blood, Paine's celery compound fills the vessels with led blood, drives out the dangerous humors and thus gives relief to a host ot aches, pains aud weaknesses. Women and men who have lost flesh and grown colorless and are subject to aches and pains, gain quickly in health from palne's celery compound. There is hardly a family cf any size where there is not some member who is fetble, forever tired and below the standard ot health to whom Paine's celery compound would prove of invaluable help. Not only does this gteat invigorator drive out t'ae aches and distresses that have accumulated because of neglected rbenmatism or neulalgia, but the lib eral gain in flesh and blood that is always a noticeable and encouraging result of its use, brings about better health in the digestive, assimilative and secretive oigans; iu other words, all over the body. g BtSE THE CONTEST In life during the twentieth century will demand every man and woman thought and extensive preparation, If you would be well equipped to meet It, prepare to join the large enthusiasticciowd who will enter of 1 H tjrt fe 3 fei s The Seminary and Commer- v cial Institute 'IP" fcaesd&v, Jan, P Si l, Boavor Dam, Ky., 1897 FACULTY of five earnest and well equipped men.

On the 30th of November death swept into our midst and took from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Kd Ward their own and beloved child, Estcl, lie was a bright and intelligent child, aged 17 months and 11 days. He was sick only a short time with pneumonia, but God seen best to call him home and relieve him from his pain. Although it was hard to part wllliHstel, but remember dear patents he has only gone to heaven to blossom there, for the sweet little bud for earth was to fair, Funeral services were held by Bro. Jo A. Bennett alter which he was laid to rest in the Carson graveyard to await the resurrection morn. O, how we'll miss Kstel here on earth His little (cct we'll hear no more, He was full of laughter and mirth, But is now singing on the other shore. Weep not for him dear mamma, For E&tel is with the angels now, And could you hear his dear sweet He'd only say come home to me. O, how you'll miss him now, While liete on eatth jou'll bee him no more; But prepare to meet with him Up on the golden chore. And should you (ail to make the change, As you've been warned to do, No more you'll hear Estel call your name Or sing sweet songs with you. For he is singing around the throne, He has only gone on before, His angel voice can only say, "Papa and Mama, weep no more." A voice, nu-g- el A FOR LABOR.

This Is one of the most Important subjects that the commission will have to deal whh. It hns engaged tlie attention of our best financiers for many years past, Includlngseveral secretaries of the treasury, and It Is the unanimous opinion of those best qualified to judge that the grcenbaclts should be retired. At the time they were Issued It never entered the mind of nny person that they were, to remain permanently outstanding. The fnct that they were on their face government promises to pay tos construed ns meaning that tbey were to be redeemed and retired when they hod served their purpose at the earliest convenience of the government. Tills process of redemption and retirement began soon after the war, but it was stopped by congress and a law was passed that when redeemed they should be reissued. Trom that time to the present they have been a trouble breeding factor In our currency system, a constant source of nnxlcty to every secretary of tho treasury and a disturbing element in business. They should be retired. No doubi Secretary Gage will recommend this la his first, annual report to congress, and he may suggest a definite plan for accomplishing H. Between his plan and the one ths monetary commission will offer congress will have no difficulty in formulating one that will be safe and feasfbls and that can be carried out without causing nny disturbance in our currency system. gold basis. Our minister to Hnytl writes that Hnjtl is considering the proposition of consolidating her several debts Into one national debt, the destruction of her paper money, and the substitution of a gold currency based upon our unit of value, the American dollar. These are only small and comparatively unimportant countries. They, however, are straws which show that wind Is blowing away from silver the and toward gold. Se many countries bavt changed fren silver and other kinds of cheap money lo gold during the past two years thattbe silrerites are attempting to ridicule this evolutionary process by saying that the gold standard Is a "fad" just now. This is one way of stating the popularity of gold and ths unpopularity of sllrer. The truth is that silver is being dropped by all sagacious nations it has In the last ten years fully demonstrated Its unfitness to serve as a standard ef value. It is too uncertain and unstable In value. Japan made the change from silver to gold on the first of this month and did it without a jsr or a shock to her financial or business interests.

Parallel with this line of figures Is another line showing how silver began at 67.2 cents per ounce on September 1, 186G, and fell steadily, while wheat was rising, getting by August, 1897, to 87.1 cents per ounce and by September 1, 1897, to 51.2 cents per ounce. Themoral of the parallel Is that wheat is not tied to silver any more than to gold. If we bad been on the silver basts from September, 1891, to September, 1897, the rlssin theprlceof wheatdne to scarcity would have been nullified to some ex tent by tho fall of tba value of tho white dollar received is payment for It.
