The Hercules Remedy company is playing to crowded house at Sullivan’s hall (Degner Bldg-empty lot south of Community Center) this week. The audiences seem very well pleased with the performances. Tonight and Saturday night an admission fee of 15 cents will be charge and no time will be given to medicine talk. The hall will no doubt be well filled.
Mrs. J.W. Kingsley and son Floyd came down from Minneapolis on Friday evening last and the latter will now make Mazeppa his home “for keeps,” having successfully taken the examinations before the examining board of pharmacists last week. He began work behind the case at the Prescription Drug Store (Legion Hall) on Monday morning and will in future be found prepared to “pound pills” at any time of the day or night. Floyd has many friends here who will be pleased to learn of his progress.
Mrs. Rhodie Noah, of this place, was taken in the night with cramping pains and the next day diarrhea set in. She took half a bottle of blackberry cordial but got no relief. She was then sent to me to see if I had anything that would help her. I sent her a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhea Remedy and the first dose relieved her. Another of our neighbors had been sick for about a week, had tried different remedies for diarrhea but kept getting worse. I sent him this same remedy. Only four doses were required to cure him. He says he owes his recover to this wonderful remedy. For sale by J.W. Kinglsey, druggist: also for sale by A.M. Casper, Belle Chester, Minn.

A party of young ladies consisting of about twelve in number are spending a pleasant week camping on Trout brook. They expect to return next Saturday evening.
Mike Gregoire, one of Goodhue County’s most enterprising farmers, expects soon to begin the erection of a barn 52 x 76, which will be when completed one of the finest barns in the part of the state.
George Corser had a tip over last Sunday while driving from his place to the house of his daughter, Mrs. Johnston. When descending the grade which leads to the little bridge near the Bear Valley school house, the tongue of the wagon dropped and before the horses could be stopped the wagon had tipped over spilling out the occupants. Mrs. Johnston was quite seriously hurt but the rest escaped without serious injury although George’s face was decorated with a discolored optic for a few days.
Since Floyd Kingsley return to Mazeppa “band talk” has been indulged in to a considerable extent and it is more than likely that the boys will manage to get together soon and reorganize. Mazeppa’s band was once her pride and now that a cornettist and leader in the person of Floyd is available, the time seems ripe for such a move.
The beardless youth of 28 and 30 summers is once more the fashion in Mazeppa and several of the handsome hirsute appendages which have won fame or brides in the past have been relegated to the touch of the cruel razor. The “fad” is becoming so general the wonder is that the genial knight of the art tonsorial has not “mis-licked” and taken off his own—but the lady of the house says he barred out forever if he does.
Judging from the general discharge of firearms upon the streets a few evenings ago at just about the hour when most of the humble village folk were endeavoring to secure a few hours of sweet rest, one would be justified in either swearing or shouting “police”. As the latter would be of no avail in Mazeppa it is to be presumed that the most of those within hearing distance did the former. If some poor, innocent cow should happen to break its tether and quietly graze on Peck Boulevard, however, there would be half a dozen warrants sworn out against the cow, inside of 15 minutes, by irate citizens. What a wonderful thing this modern civilization is, anyway.
A.J. Hodge of Farm Hill is hauling lumber for a new barn 30 x 60.
