A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
The newly elected directors of the
First National Bank held a meeting last night and elected
officers for 1898. Wm. E. Brinkerhoff was re-elected
president; Cashier V. A. Wallace was elected
vice-president, and ex-Mayor E. B. Jacobs was promoted
from assistant cashier to cashier. The promotions were
made to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Mr. C. L.
Bartlett who was vice-president. Although the promotions
are now in effect, they are to all practical purposes
merely changes in title, for both Messrs. Wallace and
Jacobs will remain actively interested in the bank, and
will be found at their accustomed desks.
W. O. Davis and wife, of Bloomington,
Ill., are visiting their sister, Mrs. Mary Bailey, in the

This part of the country has
never been known for its interest in hockey.
Suppose thats why Ive never paid much
attention to the sport.
The other night I happened ta
watch the U.S.A vs. Canada matchup at the
Olympics. I suppose its because of the
highlights seen on the sports during the nightly
news, but I thought all hockey players did was
brawl. What little hockey I had seen on TV seemed
ta be too confusin to follow.
The other night, the game
started ta make a little sense to me. I have no
doubt that it is definitely a physical game. But
there is a flow to the game and I got hooked into
stayin up a little later than I wanted.
I suppose most things are more
involved and subtle than is initially perceived.
This is some fact, but mostly,

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I
recently read that nausea and gas are symptoms of
pancreatic cancer. I have both. Could I have
pancreatic cancer? I am 79. -- E.B.
cancers average age of onset is 65. The
risk of coming down with it increases with age.
About 34,000 new cases of it occur yearly in the
United States. It is the fourth leading cause of
pancreatic cancer such a peril is its lack of
signs and symptoms in its early stages. Symptoms,
when they do arise, include loss of appetite, a
drop in weight, stomach discomfort or pain,
nausea and a sensation of fullness after taking
only a few bites of food. As the cancer grows, it
blocks the drainage of bile, and the skin and
whites of the eyes turn yellow.
Your symptoms are
common to many things, and pancreatic cancer is
not high on the list. However, I have learned one
thing about medicine: When a person brings up a
diagnosis, I cant dismiss it, no matter how
remote the chances of having it are. See your
doctor. You and I will sleep better if you do.
