That liidiotis and tlcathly demon
am of sickness ? constijwition, is an easy
cnouglt thing to ctire if you take the right mcil
icinc. Constii>ation is one of the commonest
thiiiKH in thr worUl. It is really one of the tnost
seriotis things. Fullv ninc-tcnttis of all the onli
nary sickness of ttiankind is due to this otie canse.
If you placc an ohslruction in the.Kiittcr, it will
stoj> thC tiow of watcr, and gradually a tnass of
uoisonons, ' ptitrefying matter will ncctimttlate.
That is exaetly what hanpens in the digestive
organa arlsan constipation tHrpdns. Poisonous mat?
ter aciuinulatcs ami is forcctl into the lilood. It
goes all over the Ixxiy and causcs all sorts of
aymptoms. A few of these are dizziness, flatn
lence, heartliiirn, tialpitatiou, headaches, losa of
njipetite, loM of slcep, foul hrcath, distrcss after
eating, hilioiisness and rntptions of the skln.
These things nre unpleasant, but they are not
seriotis. The serious things come afterward. I)r.
l'ierce's Pleasiint Pellets are for the cure of con
htipation. They are tiny, augar-coated granulea,
casy to take, mild and efficient in their action.
One is a gentle laxativc, two a mild cathartic.
There is nothing "iust as good," alUiough lieing
and t:.iscnipulous dniggists may somctimes tcil
you so for their oarfj profit.

Banawed Intaraat la a sult brought agalnat the
Itev Dr. 1' Parhar Morgan haa been aroused hy

the Uev. T. J Kpp that i>r. Mocgaa had praaebad
an Baatar aarmaa from an oM voiume of aarmona
by a Cnltarlan .-lergym'.n without glvlng credlt.
lt Is exppeted that the sult whlch was Instttuted
against the llev. Dr. Morgan by Jolm V. Howen. a
Mhlp broker, .s to be trled some tlme this sprlng.
Mr. Howen last February brought the actlon In
the Hupreme Court agalnst the rector of the
church of the Heavealy Reat. asklng for $20,000
aaaaagag on the groUbd racltad t? ttie papers In thp
case as follows;
"Dr. Morgan Is a person ot good name. fame aad
reputatlon. and was always so eatepm.-d. On or
about tbe latttr part of November or parly part
of Daeambar, IBBfa, at N... s Kast rarty-aWth-at, in

of one Jone?. falsply and mallclously apoke con
Cernlng the plalntlff the false, slanderous and de
famatorv words: He ls a drunkard.'
Hy tlw. reference to hlm ln this language Mr.
Bowaa de.-iur.-s that he was deprtvedof emptoyment
ln a tlrm whlch would have pal.l a llberal aalary.
"Such un ,-plthet as 'drunkard applled to me was
without aaauaa." said Mr. Bowaa yeatarday. "and
thp remark could have amaaatad from the paator
only through a man, splt.-ful splrlt. Conaldorlng
the stundlng he had a* a minlster. such language
redaeted aerloualy uppn my eharaetar, aad t tha
ataamabla oompaay, wblea had oarerad an excauant
Dlace to me, de.ldcd adversely atid I lost the op
tiorttinlty all on aoouunt of a slanderous charge.
?Dr Morgan'a egplanatloa for muking the aeeuaa
tlon that I was a drunkard, I understand, is that I
wrongly dated a b-tter whlch 1 wrote to hlm con
cernlng a brother of mine, and that he dlsplayed
the coromuBlcatlon to otlmrs, wlth the remark that
oniy a drunkard could have dated a letter that way.
"As for Dr. Morgan's tnotives In assalltng my
character. thut Is pr ibably accounted for by the
fael that l know him and his family- knew them
uway baek in Walaa, bafora he eama to this eoun
try and when 1 llved in the anme nelghborhood
that he dld. Whut 1 know regardlng hlm 1 will not
dls.-lose now, but when the cas.- comes up ln court,
What 1 aay may bo of partlcular Intereat."
('. 8. Clark, thp attorney for Mr. Howen, waa
e.jually retlcent regardlng what Mr. Howen had to
say alwut Dr. Morgan, but he said that a summons
had been serv.-d upon Dr Morgan and that no
atiswer to the complalnt had been recelved, al
though ex-Judge Noah Davls wrote that he would
appear as Dr. Morgaa'a attarnay.
