REPORT or AUDIT COMPANY.
Aug. 22, 1902.
Mr. W. B. Smith, Mayor,
Dear srß ßegarding reports of
“Dispensary Commission,” addressed
to the mayor and council and dated
March Ist. and June 2, 1902.
First as to report dated March Ist.
1902. Assuming that the statement of
cash and stock on hand is correct and
THE BARNESVILLE NEWS-GAZETTE, THUI SDAY, AUGUST 28, 1902.
that the amount entered as due on
stock ($632.30) covers all liability for
['stock, salaries, license, rents and other
expenses incurred to that date it would
appear that the total profits to March
2nd amounted to $1,448.55. To arrive
at profits for quarter covered by this
report it would be necessary to deduct
from above amount the inventory of
stock on hand at beginning of the
quarter less liabilities that have since
been settled. In other words deduct
“net worth” of the dispensary on Dec.
Ist. 1901 from $1,448.55 and it will give
profit for the quarter. As I have no data
before me will have to refer you to
report of Dec. Ist. for this information.
The report dated June 2nd. 1902, is
silent as regards the $632.30 reported
as due on stock March 2nd. and is also
silent as to existing indebtedness on
stock. Assuming that this $632.30 has
been fully paid and is included in item
“paid for merchandise $4,088.82” and
that there is no existing indebtedness
on stock in hand or stock disposed of
(luring the quarter, it would seem that
the total profits for the last two quar
ters amount to $1,746.96 represented by
items on statement as follows:
Cash on hand $ 642
Stock on hand 1141 54
Paid on old accounts 600 00
Totai sl,"-6 9!
Deduct profirs to March 2 1,448 55
Leaves net Profit for last quarter 208.41
On the other hand if the $632.30 men
tioned in report of March 2, and on
which the June report is silent is still
unpaid, the business for the last quar
ter shows a loss $333.89 to which should
be added any debts incurred since
March 2nd and which are still unpaid.
It will he necessary to get more definite
information on these points before a
reliable statement of profits or losses
can he made.
It is impossible even to determine t he
results accomplished in any business
from a statement of assets only. If your
commission will give a statement of
both assets and liabilities at the end of
each quarter and when there are no
debts give you a statement to that ef
fect, you can then easily determine
the profit for each quarter and there
will be less to take for granted or at
which to guess.
You will see from above it is impos
sible for us to state definitely from the
meagre information given in reports
referred to, just what amount has
been earned by the d'spensary during
the last quarter. Respectfully,
The Audit Cos.

Thousands Have Kidney Trouble
and Don’t Know it.
How To Find Out.
Fill a bottle or common glass with your
water and let it stand twenty-four hours; a
sediment or set
tling indicates an
tion of the kid
neys; if It stains
your linen it is
evidence of kid
ney trouble; too
frequent desire to
pass it or pain in
the back is also
convincing proof that the kidneys and blad
der are out of order.
What to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp-
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects Inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra
ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won
derful cures of the most distressing cases.
If you need a medicine you should have the

“While picnicing last month my 11-
year-old hoy was poisoned by some weed
or plant,” says VV. H. Dibble, of Sioux
City la. "He rubbed the poison off
his hands into his eyes and for awhile
we were afraid he would lose his sight.
Finally a neighbor recommended De-
Witt’s Witch Hazel Salve. The first
application help him and in a few days
he was as well as ever.” For skin disease
cuts, burns, scalds, wounds, insect

A Talk to Business Boys.
A boy’s first position in a com
mercial house is usually at the
foot of the ladder; his duties are
plain, his place is insignificant,
and his salary small. He is ex
pected to familiarize himself with
the business, and as lie becomes
more intelligent in regard to it,
bo is advanced to a more responsi
ble place. His first duty, then, is
work. He must cultivate day by
day habits of fidelity, accuracy,
neatness and dispatch, and these
qualities will tell in his favor as
surely as the world revolves.
Though he may work unnoticed
and uncomniended for months,
such conduct always meets its
i once knew a boy who was a
clerk in a large mercantile house
which employed as entry clerks,
shippingclcrks, buyers, beek-keep
ers and salesman eighty young
men, besides a small army of por
ters, packers and truckmen; and
this boy of seventeen felt that
amid such a crowd he was lost to
notice and that any eifort he might
make would he quite unregarded.
Nevertheless he did his duty; every
morning at eight o’clock he was
promptly at his place, and every
power that he possesed was brought
to bear upon his work. After he
had been there a year he had oc
casion to ask a week’s leave of
absence during the busy season
“That,” was the response, “is an
unusual request, and one which
is somewhat inconvenient for us
to grant; but for the purpose of
showing you that we appreciate
the efforts you have made since
you have been with us, we take
pleasure in giving you the leave of
absence for which you ask.” “i
didn’t think,” said the boy, when
be came home that night and
related his success, “tliat they
knew a thing about me, but it
seems they have watched me ever
since 1 have been with them.”
They had, indeed, watched him,
and had selected him him for ad
vancement, for shortly after, he
was promoted to a position of
trust with appropriate increase of
salary. It must be so, sooner <>r

fy | * If impatience or fault-finding are
| | | J L_| ever excusable it is when the Ixxly is
J J tortured by an eating and painful sore.
It is truly discouraging to find after
months of diligent and faithful use of external remedies that the place
remains as defiant, angry and offensive as ever. Every chronic sore, no
matter on what part of the body it comes, is an evidence of some previous
constitutional or organic trouble, and that the dregs of these diseases
remain in the system; or, it may be that some long hidden poison—perhaps
Cancer —has come to the surface and begun its destructive work.
The blood must be purified before the sore will fill up with healthy flesh
and the skin regains its natural color. It is
through tiie circulation that the acrid, corroding f^
fluids are carried to the sore or ulcer and keep it
irritated and inflamed. S. S. S. will purify and
invigorate the stagnant blood when all sediment or 1 1 ■'
other hurtful materials are washed out, fresh rich blood is carried to the
diseased parts, new tissues form, and the decaying flesh begins to have a

No Cure For Baldness.
The reports tliat John D. Rock
efeller is succeeding ingrowing a
new suit of fine young hair on his
perfectly bald head are being
watched with interest by all tins
baldheaded men in the country.
But it is very doubtful whether
he will be able to bring the van

As the New York World says,
many are the theories conceived to
comfort the bald—most of them
fallacious. It has been said by those
who care not what they say that
there are no bald men in lunatic
asylums; the fact being of course
that a man may he as “crazy as a
loon” and as bald as the egg she
lays. Baldness is ascribed to im
proper breathing, to lack of ven
tilation of the scalp, to early in
sedatenessof conduct. The modern
tendency is to attribute it, like
most other ills, to digestive
troubles. Figuratively speaking,
men pull out their hair with their
own teeth, corkscrews sometime#
aiding the process.
It would be interesting to know
how many millions of dollars are
paid out every year by men for
hair restorers. Not much hair re
sults, but money is kept in circu
lation. But if there were a sure cure
for baldness the magic bottle would
contain, as Dr. Johnson said of
Mrs. Thrale’s beer vats, “the po
tentiality of growing rich beyond
the dreams of avarice.” Its in
