What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Colusa, Cal., April 18th.—Much has been said and written recently about Uric Acid in the system; what causes it arid how to get rid of it. It is known to be the first cause of Rheu- matis and many other diseases and has therefore received a great deal of attention from medical men. Mr, L. F. Moulton of this place claims that he has solved the prob lem of how to get this acid out of the system. He says: “f had this acid trouble myself for years. At times the Kidney secre tions would be very profuse and at other times scant, but the acid was always my greatest trouble. Medicino failed to cure me till at last I heard of a remedy called Dodd's Kidney Pills and after taking a box I seemed to be entirely cured. However, it came back on me and this time I took several boxes, with the result that I was. completely and permanently cured. This was three years ago and f have not had a single symptom of the. acid trouble since. I am 75 years of age and I am well as ever ,1 was.” The Difficult Part.

The moral is:. Beware of selfishness, lest you be hoist with your own lyddite shell. It all happened up at my town last fall. There’s a widow living there who has three daughters, very estimable young ladies, but, alas, the two older are exceedingly selfish. They are both somewhat farther along in life than the average unmarried ; woman—I don’t know how old they are— I hope I’m too much of a gentle man to know anything about a lady’s age—but just for the sake of the Btory we’ll call one of them slightly over thirty and the other slightly un der. The third daughter I’m willing to come out boldly and call twenty— we’re on safer ground when we get down in that neighborhood, you know. And better yet, this girl is one of the most unselfish creatures in the world. She is, in fact, a most charming girl in every way, with a pretty face and a quiet, unassuming manner which never fails to win with its simple charm. If 6he has any failing it Is that of too great humility and an In clination to allow herself to he im posed upon. But probably this has been brought about largely by her .be ing constantly domineered ever by her older sisters. There is, I believe, a sort of unwritten law among women that daughters must marry in rotation according to age, though instances of rebellious younger sisters who marry before their elders are common enough. But certainly in this case 'Jorothy, which we’ll name the young ish had not the least idea of ever joing anything so improper. It might A man’s life js .worth what it costs him. Und«r 'he tree on the lawn. teem to her thtt her older sistrrs had had a fair chance, and that they were unconscionably long in getting •mt of the way. but still she was pa rent and willing to wait. “ Indeed. Dorothy was very closely /oked after by her mother and older listers, and little opportunity was ever 3 iven her even remotely to contem plate tho idea of marriage. It was pot until last fall that ac;’thfng in- •he guise of a man was allowed to approach wi'hin hailing distance. Then she was given thè privilege of receiving some circumspect calls from a neighboring young man named Hhr- ry Lambert. He’s one of the best young fellows in town, only a year or two older than Dorothy and altogether desirable in every way. During the tall he was accustomed to drop around Sunday evening and spend an hour with Dorothy on the front porch or sitting on a bench under a tree on the lawn. Her mother approved, though the cider sisters were accus tomed to sneer and to question the Indade, Ot’ll not. ” propriety of the proceedings. Though you must not gather that the older girls had no attentions—far from it. Mr. Edward Edgewater has been 'reg ularly paying court to Elizabeth, the oldest, for a number of years. Mr. William Jackson has been doing the same by Ruth, the second daughter. I don’t know why, but the progress of Messrs. Edgewater and Jackson has been exceedingly slow. They have called with clocklike regularity every Sunday evening, but the joyous wed ding bells have refused to ring. “ So during the fall things ran on as I have indicated, each of the young men finding happiness in the com pany of the lady of his choice every Sunday evening. But with the ap proach of cold weather the prospect for Dorothy changed. The porch or the lawn were all very well under the soft influence of the harvest moon— perhaps preferable to any other place —bnt the austere November moon is another thing. Right here I ought to mention that the widow’s house, though comfortable, is far from large. It accommodated Elizabeth and Ruth- very pleasantly for courting purposes, but there was really no place for an other. So there was nothing for Dorothy but to throw herself on the generosity o f the others, and beg them to share with her, since Sunday even ing was the .only time that Harry could conveniently call. She went-to Elizabeth first and laid the case be fore her, and asked for the use of the parlor occasionally—perhaps once a month. The older girl proved colder than the November moon. She re plied in effect that she 'was in the habit of entertaining Mr. Edgewater in the parlor each Sunday evening and that she had no intention of giv ing it up for a chit who ought to be in short dresses. Hardly! Dorothy had better go back to her dolls. •“ Poor Dorothy wiped her eyes and sought Ruth. This lady was dumb founded. The idea! She was accus tomed to see Mr. Jackson, in the din ing. room * each Sunday evening, and she thought she i saw herself giving it up to a minx who ought to be wear ing her hair in a long braid. Oh. yes! Dorothy bad better go .back to her dolls. Dorothy had a quiet cry, then she bethought her of Maggie.. The kitchen was not Just the place to receive JHarry, ’but—any port in a storm; so she' sought- out Maggie.'. “The loikes.of that!.; Well; .1. never!'' And me -in the/habit of ' receiving Afflcer Donovan here ' ivery Sunday, noight,’with the consint of thè missus. And him à proper; young man, and' on- this beat, and that his only fioight off.' indrde, Oi’ll not! ' Oi’ll give notice first! It’s a wonder that ’ Miss, Dor- ' othy don’t go back to her dolls!'“ - “Poor Dorothy! She retired to her. own room arid had a good cry. ,! Fate was against her; there was no hope. It. was; Saturday; the evéning paper predicted a cold wave. There ..'was à little touch of snow on thè ground the next morning. Dorothy cried' some more. This was really all there was. left for her to do. ' “But next evening Harry came. -He had feared the worst; and was pro-, vlded with- his winter overcoat and: a- pair of heavy goloshes.' Dorothy put cn her winter cloak and took her. muff and together they spent 'an hour tramping briskly. up and down the path beside the house. Their- teeth chattered considerably, hut they man aged to carry' on a conversation, and to some purpose, as appeared subse quently. At the end of the hour Harry said good-night at the front, steps, passed out the gate, sneezed furiously three times and hurried-home. “ The next af terne on Dorothy and Harry called at my house.,, Harry asked me to marry them then and there. Dorothy told their story, and explained that they had riot intended to he married for a couple of years, mainly out of regard for the-feelings of her sisters, but that now there was nothing for them but to' be married or. give each-other up, which they could never, never do. So I married them. “ The marriage, I heard, produced some excitement in the widow’s house hold. Elizabeth and Ruth are re ported to have said things, especially when they got a note from Dorothy while away on a little three-day wed ding tour, asking them please to look after her dolls, and see that they were fed regularly 'and put to bed at seven o'clock. Messrs. Edgewater and Jackson were also said to have been rendered thoughtful by the occur rence, and when I met Officer Dono van .on, his beat thè next day I no ticed he seemed preoccupied. ' So if you haven’t forgotten my' moral yon see where it comes in. Be generous At least, don’t be too selfish.” AFTER THfc DIG FIRE. Humor of Incidents in Connection With Baltimore Conflagration. On Water street, near South, the big granite-based buildings were mash ed to a-mass of barely recognizable ruins. In one of them, however, right over the door way to the side was a big. sign. AH about this sign demoli tion was spread by the wild fury of the flames and falling walls, and the building looked like it had been at the mercy of a miniature Kansas cyclone. But just the same, like the celebrated flag in Francis Scott Key's immortal song, the sign was still there, and it read, “For Rent—Desirable Offices in the Basement.“ The basement, or what was left of it, was all that remained of the former five-storied building. Not a block away was another pe culiar freak of the fire, There was a cigar store on the corner , of Lombard and South streets, in front of which there was evidently a sign advertis ing a certain brand of cigars. __ The building was in ruins. Every sign of life was destroyed. Ruined buildings and fallen electric wires made pas sage-way very difficult, but the adver tisement, or at least a great portion of it, was still observable. The lower part of the sign stood out in strong relief, reading, “The Best Smoke In Town.—Baltimore World. The Color c / Whisky. “A nuery about Scotch, whisky,\ writes H. P.

CAME FROM COFFEE. A Case Where the Taking of Morphine Began With Coffee. “ For 15 years,” says a young Ohie woman, “ I was a great sufferer from stomach, heart and liver trouble. For the last ten years the suffering was terrible; it would be impossible tc describe it. During the last three years I had convulsions from which the only relief was the use of mor phine. “I had several physicians, nearly all of whom advised me to stop drink ing tea and coffee, but as I could take only liquid foods I felt I could not live without coffee. I continued drink ing it until I became almost Insane, my mind was affected, while my whole nervous system was a complete wreck. I suffered day and night from thirst and as water would/only make me sick.I kept on trying 'different drinks until a friend asked mo to try Postum Food Coffee; \I did so, but it was some time be fore I was benefited by the change, my system was so filled with} coffee poison.
