To spread the cloth, to draw the tea.

And banished all her caro.
And a day that was sad closed
With a song of praise and prayer.
’Twas only a little thing to do
For a sturdy lad like Ned
To groom the horse, milk the cow,
And bring the v. ood from the shed;
But his father was glad to find at
The chores were all well done.

Washington, Oct, 9.—A new
counterfeit $10 silver certiticate has
boirn discovered by the secret ser
vice division of the treasury. It is
of the series of 1891; check letter B;
plate number indistinct; probably
74; J. Fount Tillman, register; Mor
gan. treasurer; i>ortrait, Hendricks.
It is a dangerous photo-mechanicai
production, printed on soft paper
probably made up from two sheets
of J'.:7"»iese tissue. Green and red-
ink lines are used to imitate the-silk
fibre of the genuine. The faoe of
the note has a grayish tiKireV^iftg,
no doubt, to the use of a poor quali
ty of black ink. The color of the
seal is a trifle too dark. The back
of the note is more deceptive than
the front. The imprint of the bu
reau of engraving and printing on
the left end of the back is illegible.
During the winter of 1897 Mr.
James Reed, one of the leading cit-
izens and merchants of Clsiy Co.
W. Va., struckhisleg against*cake
of ice in such a manner as to "oruise
it severely. It became very much
swollen and pained him so badly that
he could not walk without tho aid of
crutches. He was treated by phy
sicians, also used sevral kinds of lin
iment and two and a half gallons of
whiskey in bathing it but nothing
gave him relief until he began using
Chamberlain,s Pain Balm. This
brought almost a complete cure in a
week’s time and he believes that had
he not used this remedy his leg
would have had to bo amputated.
Pain Balm is unequaled for sprains,
bruises and rheumatism. For sale
