with regard  io  the  volume of

considerably more busiuess this

trade during the past mouth has
been particularly marked in this
respect in comparison  with   Ihe

men around tho town.   The agricultural country adjacent lo Rev-

A copy of tho Minneapolis
Times cun.e Ij iho S'l'.ut ollice
this week, having an urlisle on
"petty swindlin--" marked, The
swindling compliiincfl of is
the practice of loo.il dealers an<l
especially ilriigi/ists in selling
cheap counterfeits of standard
and widely advertisdd prepanu
tioi.s, In tho course of the
article it says:
"Tt a most dishonest practice. It
is not only a positive fraud upon his
customers, and a direct robbery of
the manufacturers whose enormous
expenditure of money iu advertising
tbe genuine article has caused the
demand which makes the sale of his
worthless imitation possiblo, but it
works an incalculable injury to
every publisher in tho laud. To
sucb a magnitude has this species
of swindling growu tbat tbe legitimate manufacturers of standard pro.
prietory remedies are beginning to
curtail their expenditures for advertising. They realize thut, the doalorB
in tho counterfeit goods aro reaping
the lion's share of the profits of
tbeir liberal patronago of the press of
tbe country. The more money they
expend for printer's ink, the more
tbe counterfeiters of thetie goods
fatten uud flourish."
Wo do not Hgi'oo with our big
contemporary. Tbo American
peoplo like to bo liumlmggod,
and il ie probably holler lor thorn
that they bo humbugged by a
local man than by some "patent
medicine" millionaire. Tho
patent medicine man does plenty
of humbugging imd he should
not grumble ll' lie has to take his
own incilieino occasionally. Our
leeal dealer in drugs and palont
medicines evidently is not one of

the trail to Trail Creel, is usod

Love and Wisdom.
One bright day in wintry weather
Love and Wisdom met together;
All Love earried was his quiver,
Yet he did uot seem to quiver,
Wisdom, though in furs, was cold;
Love was young and Wisdom old,
Wisdom, ever seeking truth,
Asked the comely, naked youth
How his body was not frozen,
As be hadn't any clothes on?
Love, for answer, sent an arrow
Whizzing into Wisdom's marrow,
And tbe old man's blood .waxed
hotter;
'Twill be boiling ere he's got hor.

Sensational    Divorce  Case.
Two of tbo most beautiful women it. Providence figure prominently in a sensational divorce
case which Mrs, Ella Augusta
TebbetlB is the libellant, aud Mibs
Belle Shaw the co-respondent.
Forest F. Tcbbetts, the libelee,
is one of the merchant princes of
Provideuce. All lhe parties concerned movo in highest circles
and Miss Shaw is conceded to be
the queen of society, The rovela-
lions mado when lbe suit was
announced was a great shock to
the local "four hundred." Mr.
Tebbetts left his wife about, a
your ago, and according to her
charges, which wero not denied
in court, has been living sinoo
then with Miss Shaw in palatial
quarters. His wife was provided
with unusally expensive surroundings, but lbe husband spent
all his time in Mibs Shaw's company. Mies Shaw iB more youth-
tul than Mrs. Tebbetts, but tbe
latter is a remarkably handsome
woman. Divouree cuboj seldom
produce two such singularly
beautiful women. Tebbetts makes
no defence uud his wife will undoubtedly secure her divourco.
