B. F. Jones who has just returned
from a trip down the coast where
he has been examining the beach
mines, says Wm. Stitt is in receipt
of a letter from Capt. J. R. Mullett,'
of New York, in which the captain
says he will arrive at Seal Rocks in
the near future and will employ
men and boats and capture alive
fifty bead of sea lions, which he
will ship to Europe via New York.
Capt. Mullett says he has been en
gaged in this business for the past
twenty years, and has heretofore
done his hunting at Santa Barbara,
California, but sea lions are scarce
at that place and he is in seaach of

A little boy over in Weston was
required to write an essay the other
day on the subject of ' 'Newspapers"
and here is the result: "I don't
know how newspapers came into
the world, and don't think God
does, for he hasn't got nothing to
say about them, and 'editor' is not
in the bible. I think the editor is
one of the missing links you hear
about, and stayed in the brush
until after the flood, then came out
and wrote the thing up, and has
been here ever since. T don't
think he ever dies; I never saw a
dead 'un and never heard of one
getting licked. Our paper is a

And where, good men, is the harm if the
kissers and kissees be healthy, and true
love stands sponsor. It is only when ill
health has blasted the sweet cleanliness of
youth that death lurks upon its lips. The
deadly germs of dread consumption are as
harmless as June-time butterflies to the
young man or woman who is thoroughly
clean, sweet and healthy in every fiber and
tissue. The germs of disease only attack
that which is already partly decaved.
There is a great medicine that is a sure
and certain protection against all germs
and a speedy cure for all germ diseases.
It is Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery. It gives youthful rest to the appetite.
It corrects all faults of the digestion. It
aids assimilation. It fills the blood with
the vital, life-giving elements of the food.
It builds sweet, clean, healthy tissues in
every part of the body. It drives out all
disease germs. It cures 98 per cent, of all
cases of bronchial, throat and lung affec
