No herb has been longer known or more universally recognized for its medicinal properties than peppermint It was mentioned by Hippocrates, the futher of medicine, 460 years before Christ. and employed by the Romans as an up plication to the temples for the relief of headache, But a new method of its application in the shape of a continuonly charged tube or inhaler, which is so small as to be readily carried in the vest pocket. is certainly the finest method of relieving the headache, or of en tarthal troubles we have ever seen. Mr.

J. T. Vanausdall will supply you with the inbaler tor the small sum of 40c by leaving your order at this office. Again we are called upon to chronicle the death of one of the foremost reformers of our age. Not one whose deeds been heralded by the press and who was courted by the nobility, but one whose loving solicitude for the welfare of the poor and the oppressed, has indelibly traced his image upon hearts that warmed by the recollection of his efforts in their bebalf.

Daniel Votaw, who left here a few weeks ago to visit and make his home in Texas, lived only twelve days after he bad reached the end of his journey. He had received a severe fall three years ago from which he never recovered, and this it was that caused his death. He was an honored member of the Friends church of Elk Valley.

Sick slowly convalescing. A part of the oats and flax injured by freezing; some of the farmers are planting their injured fields to corn. Miss Ina Jones closed her school 011 last Saturday. A big time was expected. but ye item grabber was sick and could not attend.

A little girl came to Mr. Sylvanus James' last week. We haven't learned yet whether it is a populist or not, but we rather think it is. for Mr. James says it must be called Mary E.

Lease. Populists are getting pretty thick out here, large as well as small. What is the reverend gentleman from Caneyville driving at when he talks of three books, woman's books and register. Does he think to deceive anybody by such thin subterfuge We all know that there are three books or with the Demorest outfit, and we know also and so does he, that he had but the one book at Wayside that night; that in the presence of a large congregation they were each one required to make their choice, and that they all agreed to select from that number or book. You say it is your regular way of doing business; that is all very true, but that does not make it right.

You refer us to those gentlemen who have helped in some of the contests. So far as we are acquainted with the gentlemen they are men of the est standing. morally as well as intellectually, but they were only figureheads; your lackeys were doing the work when you were not present. You have another little trick which you have successfully played both at Wayside and at other points; that is, when the picked piece business does not work, you go down to the judges and say to them that one (or more) of the contestants have either omitted or put in words that did not belong to the piece, and thus change the decision of the judges. You tried that at Havana when Misses Laura and Alice James and Mr.

C. E. Roberds acted a8 judges. They paid no attention to you and the right one got the medal. So it was at one or two places.

The judges were uncorruptible, but generally they did as you said. The pieces to be spoken by the contestants were never given out publicly by men who filled your position, but were handed around by those who could and did act unfairly. But why prolong this subject farther. You are found out, and all who are in the dark will soon emerge on closer acquaintance. You are very 1 busy, you say, What at Making coarse jokes about your people, such as "when the cows are in the corn the dogs must be put on them them to chase them out." Take care Mr.

the dogs get rabid sometimes, and then the cattle will have to look out. If you mean well by us, why do you not come up like a man and talk about it and not run whenever any of us come around. It looks suspicious to say the least. We have a little respect for a man who will tell a plain, unvarnished falsehood, but for one who will sneak around. equivocate and preyaricate, wehaye nothing but contempt.

Now if you or your co-workers have anything to say, just step up and say it like a man, don't think to plaster' "Keep in the Middle of the THE FIGHT IS NOW ON, 'Ere's Your Rocky Mountain News."
