Additional Local News. GRAVEL ROADS AGAINV Thb New Era has ever been found ready and willing to lend its influence to the advancement of anything that promised to develop the county of Noble and better the condition of her people of all classes. Good roads are essentially necessary to the development of any county, and where nature has not provided the necessary element to make such roads possible by simply opening up the way and throwing up the roadway, other means must be provided to make such roAdways. In a good portion of Noble county the soil is composed of black loam and clay, and of this material alone good road beds cannot be constructed. There are, however, extensive gravel beds to be found in almost every road district in the county, so that the graveling of the highways is only a question of a little extra labor in drawing the gravel from the banks to the highways proposed to be treated in that manner. Every man, almost, in the county is ready to admit that passable highways cannot be secued without the liberal use of such material, and all are equally ready to admit that the county can never take front rank with the more favored portions of the state until the roads are thoroughly graveled and thus rendered good during all seasons of the year. While these things are admitted on all sides, it is strange that nothing is done by our people to avail themselves of the privileges granted them by the laws of the state to have such roads constructed. In our own immediate vicinity, during the past year or two, road supervisors, or some of them, have wisely used the labor and money at their command in graveling the worst places in the highways in their respective district, and the result is that to-day those places which before were the worst roads to be found, are now, by all odds the best Xn Huntington, in Whitley, and in Elkhart counties the people are turning their attention to this matter of gravel roads, and to show the probable expense of such highway, and the means used to bring about their construction under the present laws of the state, we cannot do better 'than to reproduce the following which we find credited to the Nap-panee News of a . recent date. It says" The law provides that'lands lying within two miles on either side of the road can be taxed if necessi^, but in these calculations we h&yetbiimated an assessment per acrei on lands lying within a mile and a half on each, side oflfche proposed road. This will subject 1,920 acres of land on either side for one mile in extent to taxation. before we go any farther in this part of the calculation of the subject, let us see about what will be the cost of a mile of road. Sufficient gravel can be found within a reason- grading up one mile will not exceed $50, the cost appears thus: Number of loatls to the mile................ 1920 Number of days required to haul it........ 640 Cost of hauling at $2.50 i)er day............«1,800 Cost of loading at $1..50 per day............. 240 Cost of grading.............................. "50 Total cost.............................$1,890 Now by levying a tax of $1.00 per acre on each side of the raad within one mile and $.95 for the next half mile we have the following table: 1280 acres at «1.00 per acre..................Si ,280 610 acrcs at S95c per acre................... eos Total cost.............................SI ,888 This approximate can be lessened, provided a greater amount is hauled each day and less is required to the rod. It will be remembered that this amount of tax is paid in eight equal annual installments from which if the usual amount of road work be deducted each year the amouut of actual tax that each land owner along the road pays will not be miw ii over five dollarp, provided he owns 80 acres of land. It seems from these estimates that there can be no opposition to this most important enterprise. Land along a road of this kind Hvill be enhanced in value from five to ten dollars per acre. There are other advantages to the farmer that are too apparent to mention. -Goshen has a citizen named Albioh, Ihdiaha. ome* xLp mtmizm lax Tcaaaa. P. Slaoae'» ~tloe3E. 29tf ■it* L. W.

Milo S. Hascall, of Goshen, will locate, permanently, in the south. —JohnW. Park, of Kendallville, will engage in the agricultiiral implement business at LaGrange, having sold his property at the former place. —An apple tree six feet in diameter is said to be standing on the north bank of the Mauaiee at Defiance, and it is claimed to be the largest tree of the kind in the world. —A Goshen wife recently left her husband in that city, and it is said is living with a negro barber in Warsaw, who proposes to protect and hold the woman at the peril of his life. —It is reported that the B. & O. railroad company have about sixty men employed at Syracuse, cutting ice, and expect to ship about twenty-five car loads to other points on the line every day. —If political committees would act wisely they would place their local papnrs in tho hands of the voters of the county. Money spent in this way would be like the bread that was cast upon the waters. -The Kendallville Standard m-timates that Capt Iddings ihade from $0,000 to $8,000 on his contract to build the Warsaw courthouse.

The body was takeU home, and, it is said, buried hastily by the father under the bam. An investigation is hinted •at .—Elsewhere in this issue we have referred to the acquittal of Loomis by a jury of Elkh«^ county, for the killing of a man named Stauffer at Middlebury. The citizens of that place held an indignation meeting at which the killing was denounced as a cold-blooded murder, and the jury censured. A resolution was adopted asking Loomis to dlebiury.

SYMPTOMS OF A DISBASEP LITER. Bad Breath; Pain in the Side, sometimes the Min is felt un ■ r the Shoulder-blade, misuken for Rheumatism; :,'cneral loss of appetite; Bowels Kneraily costive, sometimes alternating with lax; the head is" troubled with pain, is dull and heavy, with considerable loss of memory, accompanied with a painful sensation of leaving undone something which ought to have been done; a slight, dry coug^ and flushed iace is sometimes an attendant, often mistaken for consumption; the patient complains of weariness and debility; nervous, easily startled' feet cold or burning, sometimes a prickly sensatio-of the skin exists; spirits are low and despondei and, although satisfied that exercise would be b'n ficial, yet one can hardly summon up fortitude ta try it—in fact, distrusts every remedy. Several 01 the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred when but few of them existed, yet examination after death has shown the Liivcr to have been extensively deranged. It should be used by aU persons, old and young, whenever any of the above symptoms appear. Persons Traveling or Uving in Unhealthy Iiocalities, by taking a dose occasionally to keep the Liver in healthy action, will avoid all Malaria, Bilious attaclts, Dixzioess, Nausea, Drowsiness. Depression of Spirits, etc. It will invigorate like a glass of wine, but Is no intoxicating beverage. If Tou have eaten anything hard of digestion, or feel heavy after meals, or sleepless at mght, take a dose and you will be r«lieven Timo and Doctors' BUls will be save by always keeping the Regulator in the Ilotise! For, whatever the ailment may be, a thoroughly safe purgative, alterative and tonip can never be out of place. The remedy is harmleH and does not interfere witii business or pleasure. IT IS PURELY TEGETABLE, And has all the power and efficacy of Calomel or Quinine, without any of the injurious after effects. A Governor's Testimony. Simmons Liver Regulator has been in use in my femily for some time, and I am satisfied it is a valuable addition to the medical science. J. Gill Shorter, Governor of Ala. fion. Alexander H. Stephens, of Ga., says; Have derived some benefit from the use o* Simmons Liver Regulator, aud wish to give it a further trial. "The only Thing that never fails to Relieve."—1 have used many remedies for Dys pcpsia. Liver Affection and Debility, but ne"er have found anything to benefit me to the extent Simmons Liver Regulator has. I sent from Minnesota to Georgia for it, and would send further for such a medicine, and would advise all who are similarly affected to give it a trial as it seems the only thing that never fails to relieve. P. M. Jannby, Minneapolis, Minn. Dr. T. W. Mason says: From actual experience in the use of Simmons Liver Regulator in my practice 1 have been and am satisfied to use and prescribe it as a purgative medicine.
