the picture is a model husband fco
kind hearted, and considerate of his
wifo's happiness and well being that
he allows her to mow the lawn sev
eral times a week or as often as it
needs it. No doubt he even consens
to her getting up early in the morning
to chop the wood hard work, and
after calm reflection we are inclined
to agreo with him. Bat to mow
the lawn with one of our lawn mowers
this is not work, it is pleasure.

The special election by which tho
voters of the city decided whether or
not to take up tho library proposition
was held on Tuesday. Though con
siderable intensity of feeling was
manifest, ouly a very small vote was
polled. The vote was taken according
to the lust city registration and there
was no property qualifications for
voters. Mauy of tho non-taxpayers,
however, refrained from voting, feel
ing that the decision should rest with
those who would bear tho expense.
On the other hand, much of the oppo
sition came from the smaller taxpay
ers, while the heavier taxpayers very
generally favored the library. As
may bo seen by tho vote, the old strife
between the two sides of tho town is
yet iu cxistcuco and cut a considerable
figure in the election.
The majority iu favor of the library
was not so large a it should have been,
but it was decisive and sullicient.
Tho First aud Second wards voted at
the court house and the Third nud
Fourth at the city hall. Following
is the voto us cast :
At court house Yes, i)'3; No, 33;
total, liu; majority iu favor of library1

DYSPEPSIA.
People that have dyspepsia have
weak stomachs, weak hearts, weak
eyes and are usually weak kneed.
They feel bilious and the world in
general has a bilious look to them,
they have so many symptoms that it
is difficult to locate the place where
they feel tho worst. The fact is the
source from where they get their
strength has been cut otf and they arc
sick till over. The food taken into
the stomach remains undigested,
causing belching, and bilious attacks,
followed by sick-headache, and gen
eral weakness. Tim medicine that
puts the stomach in condition so that
the food can be readily digested. will
cure iiysprpsiu mid make si length
where there was weakness. We have
cured thousands of ihtsoiis during the
past 2(1 years, of dyspepsia, with Ur.
Gunn's Improved Liver Pills. A 2"c
box of these pills are worth more to
jK'opln Willi poor digestion than six
months of dieting or a gallon of
pepsin. it ouly takes one tor a dose.
Wo will send two of these pills to
prove what they will do. W. F. Kre

Is Not Guesswork.
The science of optics has developed
and proven tho fact a perfect eye never
fails for distant vision, and that when
it does fail it is because of a los of
the power through which it originally
overciiinn defect. Such eyes can
only be lli liln perfect through glasses,
ami if once made perfect will thou,
like the srfect eye, never changn, nud
the glasses that make them so will
never need changing. This proves
that if your glasses need changing
they were not originally a perfect cor
rection. The lilting of glasses is purely a
1 hauteal science, requiring a thor
ough knowledge of tho eye and the
refraction of light as applied to the
eye, the aim being to correct deform
ities of the eye, the real science lying
111 the scientist's ability to measure to
111 exact nicely the errors of refraction
1 isliug because of these deformities.
To make these correct ions, wo us',
eommoiily, three kinds of lenses, viz.,
spheres, cylinders and prisms. Using
these lenses separately nud luoombina
1 1 1 111 with each oilier, there can lie
made more eoinbluat ions all of which
are absolutely necessary t bun there
are words iu Hie English language.
This shows that guesswork in optics
is n ry unci i iain. When your oculist
or optician It lis you "if these glasses
d ni't lit vii.' will changn them," you
at least have cause to lose confidence
in bis ability as a refniel ionist.
He proves al once ho is guessinir at
it, mid the science of refraction, lioing
1 1 r from guess woik, you then have
e.nise lo believe he cull never fit you.
