Considerable complaint is heard
from various people about the aggre
gation of little negro boys that con
gregate under the -awnings, over the
sidewalks on Sundays and at night,
monopolizing and blockading the
passway. Besides this, tney use
very obscene language and make it
so unpleasant that ladies hesitate to
go by such places, especially on Sun
day. The trouble has teen laid be
fore the policemen and it behooves
the authorities to rid the town of
such a nuisance.

The Magistrate Ulectoiis.
Some muddle seems to exist with
regard to the election of magis
The law directs that three magis
trates shall be elected in each town
ship and one additional magistrate
for each one thousand inhabitants
of a town or city. This requires
the election of nine magistrates in
Concord. One third of the magis
trates retire every two years by
expiration of term. Of course they
are eligible to office again.
The nomination of magistrates
does not belong to the county con
vention. They are nominated and
elected by their respective town
ships. Ward No. 4 passed a motion last
Friday night authorizing its dele
gation to the county convention to
be a committee to confer with like
committees from the other wards
for the purpose of nominating suit
able men for magistrates. It is to
be hoped that this method will
need the approbation of the other
three wards and that the subject
will receive due attention.

When a babv comes to the house
real happiness comes. The care and
anxiety count for nothing against
the clinging touch of the little hands
and the sound of tbe little voice.
The highest function given to hu
man beings is bringing healthy,
harnv children into the world.
Over thirty years ago the needs of
women appealed to Dr. Pierce, now
chief consulting physician to the In
valid's Hotel and Surgical Institute,
of Buffalo; N Y. The result of his
study improved by thirty years of
practice is embodied in L)r. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. It strength
ens, puriGes and inkes healthy the
organs distinctly feminine. It gives
weak women the strength and health
necessary for the production of
heaithy children and it makes the
bearing of those children easy. It is
sura to cure any weakness or de
rangement peculiar to women; stops
pain, soothes inflammation, strength
ens, purifies, invigorates.
