Bar, oo Sardine creek, securing a
gold brick weighing over 80 ounces,
or valuing over $600, says the Gold
Hill News. This was an exception
ally good ran, being the returns from
only 18 tons of ore. They have been
mooing in an exceedingly rich streak
of ore for the past two weeks and will
soon be ready for another mill ran
that will probably go even better than
this one. These genttlemeo make
a clean-up of this kind a boot every
six weeks and are demonstrating that
onr mines can be made to pay good
returns if handled by men woo are
practioal and economical miners.

He was doing some trading at the

fell over in a fainting spell. Dr. J.
C. Smith happened to be near at hand
and was called to to treat the in
sensible man. Mr. Patton bad no
less than three of these spells and tbe
last one was very hard. The trouble
was pronounced by Dr. Smith to be
due to stomach troubles. He was so
improved as to be able to return to

MUCH CONCERN FELT
Ordinary Method " for Treating
Catarrh Prove Unsuccessful.
Recent statistics showing an in
crease in catarrh have shaken the
oonnuence or medical men in the usual
prescriptions to safeguard human
Health from tbe ravages of this di
season. When stomach dosing provided In
effective, it was natural to look for
some otnei treatment, and it ia be
lieved that in Hyomei, an absolute
cure lor all "catarrhal troubles haa at
last been found. Breathed through
a neat pocket inhaler, its healing
medication reaches every spot where
there are catarrhal germs, destroys
them, prevents their futnre growth,
and soothes the irritated mucous
membrane ao that relief is felt almost
instantly, while lasting cure Is
practically sore to follow.
The complete Hoymel outfit costs
out ai, and is sold by Demaray under
an absolute agreement to refund the
money if it does not give satisfac
tion. It is the only core tor catarrh
that has ever been sold under a guar
antee to cost nothing nnless it cares,
bat Demaray has so muoh faith in its
power to care all catarrhal troubles
that be is willing to take tbe risk, so
if Hyomei does not help yon, there
will not be a penny's expense. Get
an on t fit at once on this liberal plan.
VALUE OF STREET TREES.
Nething Adds $ Muoh t a Tewn'a
There Is a pleasing unanimity of opin
ion among writers and lecturers on
street trees regarding their value to
abutting property as well as to the
community In general. Professor Q. L.
Stone, botanist at the Massachusetts
Agricultural college, in a lecture before
the Worcester County Horticultural so
ciety opened with the following appre
"There is nothing which adds so
much to the beauty of a town or city
as shade trees, and persons of good
taste appreciate this fact One will no
tice In traveling that the vlllugea adorn
ed with a large number of beautiful
shade trees are those In which bave ex
isted for soma time considerable public
spirit, refinement and culture. On the
other haud, mill towns whose Inhab
itants hare no permanent homes are
usually notable for their lack of trees
and embellishments In general. Shade
trees, however, possess another value,
that of utility, and we wish to call at
tention to this feature because It Is not
generally appreciated and furthermore
because It will appeal to the practical
man, who Is little In sympathy with the
beautiful In nny form. The decisions
of courts In tbe I'nited States have In
more than one Instnnce proved that
trees possess a property value and In
many cases from $."0 to 20 or more
bus been awarded to the abutter for Uie
destruction of a single tree. It makes
little dl.Terence whether a tree Is locat
ed on the street or on private land or
whether It Is set out by the town or
city or by the nliutter, since a tree In
front of n piece of property adds value
to It, nnd the nbutter can claim dam
ages for the destruction of such a tree.
An elm tre eighteen to twenty Inches
In diameter, for example, may be worth
$10O to $300, and one would experience
little difficulty In obtulnlng recompense
for its destruction."

The Harvest Victim.
By the middle of each September
England will be dotted over with
stacks of corn, and almost all of them
when thatched will be crowned with a
wisp of straw tied on to a stick or a
pitchfork and looking at a distance
about ss much like s bird as a scare
crow looks like a roan. This almost
universal and apparently meaningless
custom is a relic of the pagan times
before the Roman ciuaueet. when the
tillers of the soil killed a buman victim
to propitiate the spirit of the corn and .
burled him or part of him In the staca.
Our wisps of straw represent the effi
gy which in later days was substituted
for the victim. Traces of this super
stltlon are found all over the world
and In aJmost every century, survivor
of the dim ages wben man looked
uoon the gifts of nature as a boon to
be bought with a price of blood.
