Is the "code of honor"' again up
on iih the codo that once tyran
nized over men much on the decrees
of fashion tyrannize over women?
A tow days ago two New York
gentlemen went out by agreement
and took a idiot at each other, with
a little blood-letting as the remilt.
A few mouths ago two other citizens
equal in valor and paucity of bruins
Made targets at themselves for
mutuul satisfaction to no result
whatever. And now Representa
tive lioatnor of Louisiana and Kdi
tor Ilcarscy of the New Orleans
".States" are talking truculently of
pistols, bowies and coll'ee, and
sending friends to arrange details
for a meeting.
The curious thing about these
affairs is that nobody seems to
think of interfering in the matter.
Neither the gentlemen
other hand, the season has been
unfavorable. The Grand Island
and Norfolk factories both refused
to accept quantities of beets on ac
count of their low grade, and those
that were taken yielded an average
of less than 12 tier cent of sugar
It is apparent that sugar beets may
pay in some places and will not pay
in others. This being the case,
something definite should be ascer
tained concerning the conditions in
Oregon and Washington before
much money is invested. Oregoni

"I was nervous and weak and could
not do more than half a day's work. I
could not write without steadying my
hand with the other one. 1 procuied a
a bottle of Hood's of Sarfaparilla and be
gun taking it and now I am able to
work and write and am feeling well.
This fall my wife was sick and was con
fined to her lied about half the time. I
advised her to take Hood's Sarsaparilla
as it wag cheaper than doctors and she
Unallv consented to do so. After taking
it for a short time she was able to attend
to her work. I have not found any
better medicine as a blood purifier than
Hood's Sarsapnrilla. 1 keep Hood's
Sarsapari'la in the bouse all the time to
ward otfthe irrip and other diseases."

one dreaded disease that science has
