DON'T FORGET THIS. Profane
swearing is abominable. Vulgar lan
guage is disgusting. Loud laughing is
impolite. Tattling is mean. Telling
lies is contemptible. Slander is devilish.
Ignorance is disgraceful. Ayoid all

This is the road in which to become re
spectable. Walk in it. Never become
ashamed of honest labor. False pride
is a curse, a hateful vice. Never act

erysipelas, no other medicine can poss
ibly equal it. As a spring medicine,
perfect blood purifier, efficient and safe
diuretic and aperient, it meets with
gratifying favor from the medical pro

For the JOURNAL.
—The communication, signed "Citi
zen" in last week's JOURNAL, deserves
more than a passing notice. That our
boys behaved themselves so rudely in
disturbing the concert, given by the
Harry sisters, as reported by "citizen,"
is much to be deplored, and every one,
that has the good order of our town at
heart is just a3 sorry for it as the wri
ter of said communication seems to be.
But why should the Council bo alone
censured for something that concerns
the entire town alike V Why did not
the "citizens" who were present at the
concert, who saw and heard all that
transpired, bring the offending parties
to justice as was their duty? This
would have beeu much more to their
credit, than to rushiug into priut and
publish to the world, what a bad set of
boys we have aud theu lodge censure
on the Council and our peace officers,
who were not even present, for neglect
of duty. Or let "citizen" even yet
prosecute the boys before those very
officers, whom he so unfairly censures,
aud he will see that they are willing to
do their duty in every proper and legal
way. But we earnestly protest, tiiat
he should shirk the responsibility, that
every order-loving citizen should feel
and be willing to assume and then 111 a
manuer so public and uncalled for re
