Mr. S. D. SHIPPY lost a valuable Jersey cow, for which he had been offered
forty dollars, Thursday night. An examination of the body disclosed the fact

We are anxious to do a little good in this world and can think of no
pleasanter or better way to do it than by recommending One Minute Cough Care as a
preventative of pneumonia, consumption and other serious lung troubles that follow
neglected colds. C. H. BARROWS.

Mr. Joseph HARDMAN of Lineville, Iowa, called Thursday and informed us that

HARDMAN is an old nurseryman, having worked at that business most of his life.
