without obtaining any permanent relief.

taken with cholera morbus, and I pro
cured a bottle of this remedy, Only two
Dottles were required to give ner entire
relief, I then decided to try the medi
cine myself, and did not use all of one
bottle before I was well and I have never
since been troubled with that complaint.
One cannot say too much in favor of that
wonderful medicine." This remedy is

As Reported From Various
Parts of the County.
( WARNER GRANGE.
On Saturday Warner Grange cele
brated Floral Day. A number of child
ren were present, the little girls being
in white dresses. At the dinner hour
they marched through the hall into the
dining room; and were accorded the
honor of being seated before the older
folk. The afternoon session opened with
the exercises special to the occasion.
Ten tiny ladies in double, file, laden
with roees, entered the door, proceeded
to the platform sacree" to Pomona, Ceres
and Flora, and scattered on the floor at
their feet a mass of rose petals. Then
each two in succession, beginning with
the youngest, advanced over the roses
and recited something appropriate to
the celebration of the day of flowers.
Songs and recitations followed. The
finale of the program was nut's and can
dies. To Warner Grange the most impor
tant event of the day wai the solemn
destruction by fire of the mortgage and
note for $225, which was borrowed about
17 months ago to pay off the W. O. T.

A lively excitement prevails in the of

year 1 In Districts inspecting one hun
dred and fifty steamers the Inspector's
salary is fi.ouu. in districts inspecting
five hundred steamers, the inspector's
salary is $2,500. Besides this, they are
paid traveling expanses. Of course, the
tendency of such a provision is to ex
treme haste, carelessness and reckless
ness. It offerB every inspector a bribe .
to neglect his duty. It pays him just ab
much for inspecting a two-ton pleasure
yacht as for the F&ll River steamer. Is
it any wonder that under such a wicked
arrangement inspectors hurry from dock
to dock and overtook tbe great floating
palaces? It is obvious that the 2,500
lie preservers on the General blocum
had not been properly looked at at all.
liow could they be, under .pievailing
conditions? liow could the fire hose be
tested nnder a law which paid the in-

horrible to think of? The very least
that Secretary Cortelyou can do is to see
that serious punishment is inflicted on
delinquent inspectors. ll.Cu i,j ou.nt
