WilliaiA Gerber, of that township, has lost bogs to the value of $800 from this duease.  —In our list of correspondents referred to elsewhere, we unintentionally omitted Ibe names of''One of the Boys," of Tam-•nck, and "LaOttonian," of LaOtto, who an among our best news-gatherers.  —Can any one tell why freight chars^es OB a package from Chicago of the abme wdght each week and the same character of goods, shoold vary from 2.5 cents to SS oentsf This is a nat for our railroad twys to crack.  —«•Be" Mullen, one of the parties engaged in the row on Satnrday night, and «ho resisted arrest, was teken before tqidtsBUaa m Itonday, and fined, and to pay, waa sent io jail where he Itwnr iMM^iaf at pnl^ expraae.  —Mrs. Loomis, oi Kendallville, died a week or two ago, and a post mortem disclosed a combination of diseases as the cause of her death. Her lungs were badly affected.  —Samuel Braden, Jr., is making one of the best sheriff's Noble county has ever had, and as a citizen is winning golden opinions. The I'cople of Noble county made no mistake in placing Sam Braden in the sheriff's office.  —The Hustoa-Hoffman trial, •which it was supposed would come off at this term of the DeEalb circuilt court, will not probably lie reached, as the Kessler-Weaver case, embracing about the same questions as the former, had not been decided at latest advices.  —The people of Lima speak in the highest terms of the pastor of the M. E. church there—Rev. C. H. Wilkinson — and on Christmas eve made him a present of $25. Mr. W. was pastor of the church here some years ago, and it was through his efforts that the fine church edifice of that denomination in Albion, was erected.  —Thos. E. Ellison, wife and child were injured, but not seriously, by the collision of an engine on the Nickel Plate with a passenger coach on the Grand Rapids road near Fort Wayne last week. The engineer of the Nickel Plate has t)een arrested, but claims the track was so slippery that he could not hold his engine. A number were more or less injured, but none were killed.

It is guaranteed to give perfect satisfaction, or money refunded. Price 25 cents per box. For sale by all druggists.  An Bditor's Tribute.  Theron P. Eeator, editor of Ft. Wayne, Ind., Gautte, writes: "For the past five years have always uae^ Dr. King's New Discovery for coughs of most severe character, as well as those of a milder type. It never fsilsto effect a speedy cure. My friends to whom I have recommended it speak of it in same high terms. Having t^n cured by it of every cough I have had for five years, I consider it the only reliable and sure cure for Coughs, Uolda, etc.*' Call at all drug stores and get a fiee trial bottle, tiarge acefSJOO.  —The Kendallville Standard say« that *-the last advices from Pres. Eist indicate that the Oold Spike Is yet alive, and that men capable of building the road are considering the project earnestly."  —Pack horses are very usetul in doing the necessary work that is to be done, but when it comes to "feed," they generally get what is not considered good enough for the fancy nags that are coached for display only.  —George D. Gray, of Woodville, Indiana, formerly of Noble township, is spending a wesk or two here, and gave The Nkw Era a pleasant call on Friday to secure its-continued visits for the coming year.  —John F. Hunt and son, Frank, started on Thursday night with their household goods for Kansas. Wilaon W., another son, left oa Sunday night for his new home in the west. The New Era will make weekly visits to the latter at Baxter Springs, Kansas.  —From the Standard: Dr. 8. T. Williams on Wednesday dressed a bad gunshot wound in the left arm of John Bowman, of Alien township. The ball plowed its way thfongh the tissues for a space of between four and five inches. The shooting was accidental.  —Twenty years ago the great American rel>elIion was in progress, with a fearful nncertainty as to what the reralt was going to be. To-day the leaders ot that rebelli«» are in fall control of the lower house of congress. It does, indeed, lie-gin to look as if the confederacy was in the i^dle i^pd«, as one of the southern toada^ aptly agf ¿itiqd it.  —The Spriug Hill (Kansas) New Era is improving with every number, and Rolla Leonard is giving the people of that place a good p{tper. The businsss men there, if they appreciate a newspaper, ought to give it a better support in the matter of advertising.  —We are in receipt of the Christmas number of the Midland Monthly, a first class periodical published at Indianapolis. Some of the best writers in the United States are its contributors, and every Indianian especially should be interested in giving it encouragement and support.  —Our esteemed friend and patron, Philip Bowman, presented The New Eua on Monday with a couple of bushels of as fine apples as we ever saw, as a New Year's present. The present, itself, is a very acceptable one, but the spirit in which it was made, denoting unwavering friendship for the paper and its publisher, is a thousand times more pleasing to us. Thanks.  —A report was in circulation here on Monday afternoon that Thomas Smith, son of Joel B. Smith, had shot and killed his father. There was no truth in the rumor, as Mr. Smith, sen., was in town about the time the report reached here. Some difficulty, we understand, had occurred between the parties on that day, and this, without doubt, gave rise to the rumor.  —The Ft. Wayne Gazette says that we understand there are six propositions on file for the purchase of the water power of Rome City. One firm, of which a leading railroad man of our city is a member, has offered $6,000 for the same, witli the view of erectins a flouring mill The property will doubtless be sold by spring. A woolen factory or paper mill would be by all odds the best thing for the village.  —One of the "Prominent Mt.n of Noble county ""commenced business without any capital, but by Tiard labor and economy he accumulated a small sum, which he invested advantageously and he is now reaping the benefit by being »ole proprietor of the 'Palace Billiard Mali; at Avilla. So much for energy and ihriftnetsy So says the "concern." It would impress upon the minds of the young that the way is open for them to become "prominent men," and if they invest their means "advantageously" they may become "sole proprietor" of some saloon and "billiard hall." Out upon such pernicious teachings.  Quite a Compliment.  The state teachers association was in session last week at Indianapolis, aod the attendance was good and the proceedings very interesting. Some of the leading educators of the state were present and participated iu the exercises. A national teachers convention will be held at Madison, Wisconsin, next summer, and the Indiana association last week created an executive committee of four to make such preparations as are necessary for that purpose. Watts P. Denny, county superintendent of Noble county, was aopoint-ed one ot said committee for the north part of the state. In view of the fact that Mr. Denny was not present, the appointment is quite a compliment.  Lulu Marian, daughter of Dr. Wm. T. and Eva M. Greeu, of Albion, died Dec. 21,18S3, aged one year, ten months and tu'eaty-three days.  The disease was scarlet fever and lasted over twenty-four days. She was a model child in beauty, intelUgence and affection. But your charming little daughter has only been transplanted, to bloom in a more congenial clime, and spared the ills and templatious that must buffet iu a world of sin. This is no illusory fancy. It is the voice of God in his own word. Listen: "In my Father's hoiise are many mansions * *  • • ♦ I go to prepare a place for you that where I am, there you may be also • • • • There stiall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying; neither shall there be any more pain  • ♦ • No need of the sun, neither the moon to shine iu it, for the glory of God did lighten it  ♦ * • There shall be uo night there • • • Sufier little children to come unto me and forbid them n6t, for of such Is the kingdom of heaven  * • ■* And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in the day when I come to make up my Jewels * * * There angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven."  Parents, you are sure of ons in Heaven. This one is safe! She is thine forever! What would tempt Lulu back to earth agaiu? To leave the presence of her Savior, the company of angels and all the pure iu heart? To lay aside her crown and and throw away her harp, and come back to be smitten with the sun of day and shudder by darkness at night? Come back to be tempted and tried; to suffer and die again? She will be all the dearer to you, and Heaven all the sweeter because you learned to love her so, aud you must be separated for a little while, then to meet to part no more forever! "The Lord gave aud the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord."  •'I cannot tell what form is hers, What look she weareth now, Nor guess how bright a glory crowns Her shining seraph brow.  The thoughts that fill her sinless soul,  The bliss that she doth feel, Are numbered with the secret things Which God doth not reveal.  But we know—for God hath told us this—  That now she is at rest. Where other blessed children are. On their loving Savior's breast.  ON THE DEATH OF WILLIE HARRISON.  BY N. M. RICK.  Sleep, Willie, sleep, nor heed the hours Of loneliness I feel;  Could I prevail upon the powers, Thy gentle eyes did seal,  To rouse thee from thy soft repose, I would not wake thee to life's woes.  Enjoy thy sleep and I will weep, But heed it not, oh! no!  For should my heart its sorrow keep 'Twould burst; then let it How;  Yes let it flow, 'twill give relief; Tears often help to soften grief.  Sleep, Willie, sleep, under the sod; The white snow rests o'er thee;  The moonbeams like the smile of God Steal through the unrobed tree.  Best, lovely Willie, vnth the dead,  Nor heed the tears that 1 must shed.  Yes, sleep in undisturbed repose, Nor listen to my cries;  For nature must, iu tears uncloso Its several bleeding ties.  But shortly it will ease our pain To know we can unite again.  Then sleep away until the day When God shall bid thee rise;  I'll dry my tears and mark the way That leads thee to the skies.  'Tis lonely, but the journey's o'er; There we shall meet to part no more.  AvAix>ii, Mo.  SWAN NOTES.  bt jack.  Sleighing fine.  Christmas enjoyed by all.  Our blacksmith is rushed with work.

She used two b.-)ttles of Electric Bitters, aud is so much improved that she is now able to do her own work."
