Should Ue Stopped.
There are eoine people in this
town who make a practice of htt'h
ng their horses to the yard fence
when they stop at n house there
by blockading the entire sidewalk
; and forcing all pedestrians to take
the street to get by. It makes no
! difference how muddy it is they
I have to split it.
It is in direct violation of onr
I city ordinance and should not be
tolerated. And we see people stop
their teams right on the cross-
walks which they shouldn't do. If
one or two of them were made to
pay a fine for sueh conduct it
might hare a tendency to pnt a
stop to it.
We have a good quality of
nickel plated copper ware that will
give the beet service and perfect
satisfaction. The price ia very
reasonable. We ask the ladies to
call and see onr stock whether they
are ready to buy or not.

The peacock 13 one of the oldest
lirds known to hislory and the
pettiest bird that ever spread its
tail. In the days of Alexander a
Ug dinner was hardly complete
rithout a dish ot peacock tongue
r peacock brains. The meat cf
the bird is very fine-
Bnt there is an omen of ill luck
onnejted with the peacock. How
t ever originated we are not able
to state bat it is so nevertheless
ind the superstition seem3 to be
crowing as time progresses.
As proof of that we will ask you
to show us one in Ardmore In
cur boyhood days many of the
farmers had them and we never
knew of one who kept the birds tr
There are a great maay people
it this town that you could not
set to buy a rag with the image
of a peacock woven on it nay
you could not give it to tbera-
It has not been a great while ago
since one of our prominent jeweler
wag taken sick. He went up to
consult a physician. He grew
worse and fear was entertained as
to his recovery- A friend of his
came up to see nim. inenri
thing that caught his eye was thr
image 'of a peacock in a rug that
lay at the door. It staggered him
He passed over the threshold and
found the fond mother weepmg
over her son- ine gentleman
walked back to the rug and fold
ing it up carried it and threw u
at the head of the back stain .
During the afternoon a boy we. t
to go down stairs and stumbltd
. . j i i
over the peacocK rug anu ier
skinning himself up pretty badl
The rug was given to Frank Ennis
who took it home and spread it ut
his door. Frank soon got si k
and was pro3trated for nearly tw
months. He lost all he bad-
Frank determined to get rid of
it and found out that Dr. F J.
Brown the optician who was lo
cated at Frame's old stand for a
while wanted some rugs and dis-
posed of it to him.
Yellowstone Kit tried to get Dr.
Brown not to get it; told him thttt
he would have bad luck if he
botiL'ht it. but the doctor
laughed at Kit's superstition and
secured it. His trade decreased
here from that date and he flnall
left but before he left he packet!
up a lot of his eye testers and
other valuable instruments and
wrapped them up in the peacock
rug. and checked them to Oklaho-
ma City. The doctor has not seen
that piece of baggage from that
day to this.
In the year 1SSG Yellowstonn
Kit who was in New Orleans and
wishing to send his sister a nice
present purchased a beaut i ul
stuffed peacock and sent it to her
in Boston. Kit's mother was sur-
prised nt him sending his sister
the bird aud knowing that it was
an omen of ill luck prevailed upon
her daughter giving it away.
Kit's sister and Grover Cleve
land's wife were great friends and
thinking that no bad luck could
come to such n prominent person
she made Mrs Cleveland a pres-
ent of it-
From that time on the Cleveland
household did not get along so
smoothly as previously and Kit
says he firmly believes that that
peacock was the cause of ('lev-eland's
defeat for president in 1SS.

SGROFULfl AND ITS AWFUL HORRORS

A Grand Old I.adjr (ilvra Her Ilipr rlcnre.
Mrs. Tbankfut Orllla IlurU lives In the bonutlfut village of Brighton
L'Tlngston Co. MIcb. This venerable and highly res.iected lady was born to
tbe year 1S12 the year of tbo great war In Hebron. Washington Co. New
York. She came to Michigan lu 1S40 the year or "Tippecanoe aud Tyler
too." All her faculties are excellently preserved and possessing a very re-
tentive memory her mind Is full of interesting reminiscences of her early
life of the early days of tbe State of Michigan and tbe interesting and re-
markable people she has met and the stirring events of which she wns n wit-
ness. Hut nothing in her varied and manifold recollections are more mar-
velous and worthy of attention than aro her experiences In the use of
JOHNSTON'S SAKSAPARILLA. SIr8. Hurd Inherited a tendency and pre-
disposition to scrofula that terribly destructive blood taint which has cursed
and Is cursing the lives or thousands and markltig thousands more as vic-
tims of tbe death angel. Transmitted from generation to generation It Is
found in neary every family in one form or another. It may make Its ap-
pearance In dreadful running sores In unsightly swellings In the neck or
goitre or in eruptions of varied forma. Attacking tbo mucous membrane It
may be known as catarrh In tbe head or developing in the lungs It may be
and often Is the prime cause or consumption.
Speaking of her case Mrs. Hurd says: "I was trochlea" for many year
with a bad skin disease. My arms an jimbs would break out In a mass of
sores discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and becamo very
unsightly In appearance. My body was covered with scrofulous eruptions..
My eyes were also greatly Inllamed and weakened and they pained mo very
much. My blood was In a very bad condition nnd my head ached severely
at frequent Intervals and I had no appetite. I had sores also In my ears. X
was In a mlserahlo condition I had tried every remedy that had been recom-
mended and doctor after doctor had failed. One of the best physicians in
the state told mo I must die of scrofulous consumption as Internal abcesses
were beslnnlng to form. I ut length was told of Dr. Johnston of Detroit nnd
his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried n bottle more ns nn experiment than any-
thing else as I had no faith In It nnd greatly to my ngroeablo surprise r
began to grow better. ou can bo suro I kept on taking It. I took a great
many bottles. But I steadily Improve! until I became entirely well All the-
sores healed up nil tho bad symptoms disappeared. I gained perfect health
and I havo never been troubled with scrofula since. Of course nn old lady;
of 83 years is not n young woman but I havo had remarkably good health
since then nnd I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S S AH S AIW.lt I LLA Is tho
greatest blood purifier nnd tho best medlelno In tbo wldo world both for
scrofula and as n spring medicine." This remarkably interesting old lady dl!
not lok to ha more than sixty and she repeated several times "I believe mil
life was saved by JOHNSTON'S SAItSAl'AItlLLA." "
