HED PEPPi-i. POPULAR, It Is Been Again Store anil More In Restaurants. There are encouraging signs that red pepper Is once more to eo,me into its pwn o^i the table of New Yqi% restaurants aiy\ ho^els.says the New York Sun., *?QT- seven years something ■?fJhieh had fyy no means the same qualities as r.e(l pepper has ii^wrpeft its placp/ and persons accustomed to, the gemotes article have not always found it possible tfl £eco.pie reconciled to tht §n6stjt\ite. The reference is, qf course, tp the JfjJungarja^ product paprika. Wh^ph "is§ many excellent qualities ol \is csyfis, hut is not to be looked upot as red pepper. Possibly the costly and lnslnuative red liquid yclept tabascc may have had something to do witb pushing dry red pepper to the wall anij off the table. It has a place of Us own as well as paprika has. But a protest In concert ought to go up from all lov-. ers of highly seasoned viands at th* white, characterless stuff that is sc common nowadays as a substitute foi black pepper. Not only is it practically tasteless, but what little flavor it may occasionally possess is not likeij —at least not appreciated—by those who want something sharp on their food. Moreover, it does not show where it has been applied, whereat black pep-per puts itself ln evidence In every individual grain. "Aside from all the other p,bjectio,ns to the white article," remarked a. hoi). *¥l¥«nt the othey 8*1*, "It hasn't enough consistency to eonflne Itself to your table. When you attempt to- apply it, the slightest breath of air wafts it in a cloud over on to somebody else's table and into somebody else's eyes, perhaps. Black pepper has at least the advantage of good breeding and good* manners. I should like to see it called out of Its present obscurity." Jacob Sturm, Gone. By His Death The Church Has Lost A Good Member, and Our Village a Good Citizen. After a brief illness Jacob Sturm passed away suddenly and quietly at his home last Friday morning,'November 2. Although very sick, yet his death wa3 quite unexpected. Jacob Sturm who was one of a family of eleven children, was born in Bavaria, Germany, June 26, 1834 and when eighteen years of age came to this country stopping for a little time at New Orleans, from there to Cincinnati where he worked at his trade, harn<5ss- tdaking for a short time when he went to Chicago and in 1858 came to this place in search of his uncle, John Burg with whom he worked for a time, when he started in the harness business for himself at the old stand which he leaves, since which time he had resided constantly at this place. For some years past he had been engaged quite extensively in lumbering which business took much of his time and called him from home a great deal. Mr. Sturm has ever enjoyed in a high degree tho confidence and respect of the community. He never sought political preferment but has been supervisor, trustee and a member of the Board of Education. The latter office he held for twenty-one years only retiring at the school election in September. He married in 1868 Miss Emily Kerr of Lodi, by whom he hud four children; Fred, Professor of German in the Iowa State University, Victor of Lake City, who is^carrying on the lumber interest of his father and the two daughters Alice and Ruth who are both at home. Jacob Sturm was a member of the M. E. church for 34 years during which time he was a true and loyal member to all its interests. While the new and beautiful church was building, he was a very active member of the building committee and has been the first of its members to answer Heaven's roll call. It may be said of him that he was a just and upright man one that feared God and abhorred that which was evil. The funeral services were held Tuesday forenoon at the JMJ. E. church which was beautifully decorated with palms, white chrysanthemums and floral. pieces from friends and the societies to which he belonged. In the pulpit with the pastor Rev. F. O. Jones were the Rev. F, JE. Dodds of Belleville, Rev. J. B, Wallace Presbyterian pastor and Ifcev. JO. H. Yokum of Ridgeway, all of whom participated in the service?. He was also a loyal member of the Masonic order. As a citizen we had no better,. Mr. Sturm vvas ever ready to take bis place in whatever he was asked ta do, was generous in the support of charity and other necessaries. He was careful in his council, honorable in his dealings and his word was. never questioned. In honor and respect for tbe loss which our village sustains, all of the business houses closed for a couple of hours during the funeral. The surviving brothers and sisters of the deceased are Louis Sturm of this village, Chas. of Clinton, Philjp of Bay City, Mrs. Meyer of Kansas and Mrs. Bayer of Adrian.

Vkenemenon Tbat follows Digging Jn Trinidad's Asphalt Lake. The tourist may take passage to the "land of the humming bird"—as Trinidad people like their country to be called—and after securing accommodation at the only decent hotel in the colony, proceed to the lake by one of the small government steamers plying, coastwise three times weekly, disembark at the Brighton pier, and proceed to tbe scene of "digging." Of all the crude, rough and ready means of extracting wealth from mother earth, the Trinidad lake asphalt operations are the most striking, says a writer in the New York Post. The Visitor arrives on a fairly level plateau, spotted here and thore with tiny pools of water, beneath which the soft shiny substanca known as asphalt glitters In the reflections of a fierce tropical sun. Scattered over the surface of the lake dozens of swarthy negroes are plying pick and hoe, extracting thft tar-coaly look-' ing stuff from the earth. One may sit In the shade of a near-by shrub or. under the protecting shelter of an um-. brella and watch the negroes pile heap after heap of the asphalt into ihe end. of the endless chain of tubs that hurry along to the pier, from which one has but recently landed, until a yawning excavation of twenty or more feet suggests to the supervising darky that the time has come to move a hit further on. In the. course of a few hours the excavation resulting from the morning's diggings begins to look less deep, and hy the evening the spot from which more than five or ten tons have" been dug is again level with the surrounding earth and ready to be dug over by the gang of noisy blacks.' JFrom the point of digging to the pier is about a mile or less of endless- chain descent; moored to the pier are big sailing vessels and sometimes steamers, into whose capacious holds the tubs discharge the pitch at the rate of two or three hundred tons per day. To remove a trouolesome corn or bunion: First soak the corn or bunion in warm water to soften it, then pare it dowu as closely as possible without drawing blood and apply Chamberlain's Pain Balm twice daily; rubbing vigorously for five minutes at each application. A corn plaster should be worn for a few days, to protect it from the shoe. As a general liniment for sprains, bruises, lameness and rheumatism. Pain Balm is unequalled. For sale by Lister & Sheeder. There is no pleasure in life if you dread going to the table to eat and can't rest at night on account of indigestion. Henry Williams, of Boon ville, Ind., says he suffered that way for years, till he commenced the use of Kodol Dyspepsia Cure, and adds, "Now I can eat anything I like and all I want and sleep soundly every night." Kodol Dyspepsia Cure will digest what you eat. Unterkircher's drug store. A 'Village Blacksmith Saved Bis Little Son's Life. Mr. H. H. Black, the well known village blacksmith at Grahamville, Sullivan Co., N. Y., says: "Our little son, five years old, has always been subject to croup, and so bad have the attacks been that we have feared many times that he would die. We have had the doctor and used many medicines, but Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is now our sole reliance. It seems to dissolve the tough mucus and by giving frequent doses when the croupy sym- toms appear we have found that the dreaded croup is cured before it get settled." There is no danger in giving this remedy for it contains no opium or other injurious drug and may he given as confidently to a babe as to an adult. For sale by Lister _ Sheeder.

Plymouth Binding Twine A Comparative Statement showing the Cost and Value of Binding Twine, based on the supposition that a farmer needs, to bind his grain, 300 pounds of Plymouth Sisal, or Standard Twine, which runs 505 foet to the pound. Three hundred pounds of Plymouth Standard *or Sisal will give him 151,500 feet. 151,500 ft. ofj505 ft. to the lb., weighs 300 lbs. @ 14c will cost §42.00 151,500 ft. of 480 ft. to the lb., weighs 315£ lbs. @ 14e will cost §44.ia 151,500 ft. of 470 ft. to the lb., weighs 322J lbs. @ 14c willcost §45.13 151,500 ft. of.450 ft. to the lb., weighs 336j lbs. @ 14e will cost $47.13 151,500 ft. of 430 ft. to the lb., weighs 352J lbs. @ 14c will cost §49.33 We have recently tested twine sent us.for examination, that averaged a little less than 430 feet to the pound. The PLYMOUTH Twines are the only ones of these grades that run 505 feet to the pound. You save by ' buying them, over the lowest grade,'.§7.33 on 300 pounds, or $2.44 per 100; or 2 44-100 cents per pound. Therefore, if Plymouth sells for 14 cents per pound, the other should sell for 11 66-100 cents, to be as cheap, and others in proportion The Moral is. buy PLYMOUTH Twine, and save money, and the annoyance of loose bundles, caused by poor twine.
