The matter obtained in 7S examinations was placed in culture solutions, and gave 36 kinds of micrococci, IS of bacilli, and 3 of sarcinae, Cleanliness of the nails is especially necessary for all who come near a wound, and for those who live in a neighborhood where an* epidemic prevails.

Schunk. of Sheridan; H. C. Mickle,'C. AV. Pierson aud John Bnl?ley, "of Arthur: Charles Bowman and S. C. Zeiter, of * Loomis. counting the thousands who will now take The News to secure this beautiful book every three months, but The News was never known to stop nt expense when they undertake to do anything. A couple of sixteen year old strip- plings. who had evidently ju.-t came trom cainp for the purpose of making ••Rome howl." succeeded in getting rather the wor-t for pooi whiskey and making things rather disagreeable for the people in waiting at tlie union depot on AA'ed- ncsdny morning. Everybody seemed to dread the job of bringing ther. to task. Finally they were ejected bj* Agent Tasker. They came to the door again, when a gentleman in waiting gave one of them a swift kick in the rear, whioh had a somewhat soothing effect, but they did not quit tbeir obscene remarks and disgusting behavior until Under Sheriff Parrish made his appearance and brought them up with a round turn. It was sur- Virising to see how suddenly and painfully silent and docile those two "wild and wooly" kids became when Mr. Parrish criticised their conduct. They were let ofl'on promise of leaving on the tirst train, both buyiijg tickets for Mt. Pleasant. And right here, the DemoceAT- Pkkss desires to offer a few words of complaint, which the writer hns often heard commented upon, in regard to the architecture of the interior of the depot. There is no partition to divide the ladies* and gents' waiting room, and Womeii wlio go there to wnit for trains are repeatedly subjected to the fumes of tobacco smoke and tho vile epitcphs that iminatelrom the tongues of the rougher class of nien who froquent the depot while in wnitingfor trains. This deficiency could|ensily be remedied, nnd wo doubt if the matter was laid before the proper railroad officials it would secure the desired effect. It should be attended to. A- "Vr^it.
