Nothing I Ate
Agreed With Me.

Mrs. Lenora Bodcnhamer, R. F, D. 1,
Box 99, Kerneraville, N. C., writes:
"I suffered with stomach trouble and
indigestion for some time, and nothing
that I ate agreed Arith me. I was very
nervous and experienced a continuai
feeling of uneasiness and fear. I took
medicine from the doctor, but it did me no
"I found in one of your Perana books
a description of my symptoms. I then
?wrote to Dr. Hartman for advice. Ha
BP.id I had catarrh of the stomach, I took
Peruna and Manolis and followed his di*
rections and can now say that I feel as
well as I ever did.
' "I hope that all who are afflicted with
the same symptoms will take Peruna, aa it
has certainly cured me." *
The alcove is only one of hundreds who
have written similar letter? to Br. Hart
man. Just one such case as this entitles
Peruna to the candid consid?ration of
trverf one similarly afflicted. If this' be
true of the testimony of one person what -
ought te be the testimony of hundreds,
yes thousands, of honest, sincere people?

The day was taken up for the most
part with overtures on various sub

subjects brought up was that which
had to do with polygamy in thc for

it? position taTcen in 1906 which
leaves the question as to whether
men with plural wives shall be taken
into the Church largely at the discre
tion of the missionary, although tho
Church places itself on record as un
alterably opposed to polygamy. The
missionaries are instructed to do
every thing in their power to break up
the practice in the fields in which
they are at work.

FARM CONTRACT LAW VOID.
Act of South Carolina Legislature
. .Making Breach of Farm Contract a
Misdemeanor Held to he Unconsti
tutional by U. S. Judge Brawley.
Charleston, Special.-In the United
States District Court Judge W. H.
Brawley rendered his decision in the
case brought in behalf of Enoch and
Elijah Drayton, on habeas corpus pro
ceedings, declaring the act of the leg
islature making the breach of a farm
contract a misdeameanor to be uncon
stitutional, null and void, and the two
negroes are ordered released.
Judge Brawley's decision deals al
most entirely with the law on the
subject. The case is, however, briefly
reviewed, showing that the two ne
groes were arrested in January, 1907,
upon a warrant for failure to per
from their contract under section 3?7
of the acts of 1904 and that at this
time they were under a contract foi
ii task of the year, not yet performed.
The act provides that a conviction
shall not operate for thc- release or
discharge of the violater and when
the negroes were arrested in January,
it was the second time that they had
been hauled up and put on the chain
ing for the same offense.
The only criminal act, in the'words
jf the decision, "was the failure to
While admitting that the legisla
tion is a part of the local administra
tion in matters of great convenience
to the industrial life of the State,
Judge. Brawley says: "The remedy
is not found in statutes which chain
the laborer to the soil and force him
to labor whether he will or not. Hu
man nature revolts at it and he will
escape it if he can. It is by improv

grading it that the remedy may oe

p DR. TALKS OF FOOD
1 Pres. of Boord of Health. '
?What shall I eat?" is the daily
inquiry the physician is met with. I
do not hesitate to say that in my
judgment, a large percentage of dis
ease is caused by poorly selected and
improperly prepared food. My per
sonal experience with the fully-cooked
food, known as Grape-Nuts, enables
me to speak freely of its merits.
"From overwork, I suffered several
years with malnutrition, palpitation
of the heart, and loss of sleep. Last
summer I was led to experiment per
sonally with the new food, which' I
used in conjunction with good rich
cow's milk. In a short time after I
commenced its use, the disagreeable
symptoms disappeared, my heart's ac
tion became steady and normal, the
functions of the stomach wer'? prop
erly carried out and I again slept aa
soundly and as well as in my youth.
"I look upon Grape-Nuts as a per
fect food, and no one can gainsay but
that it has a most prominent place in
a rational, scientific system of feed
ing. Any one who uses this food will
soon be convinced of the soundness
of the principle upon which it ls
manufactured and may thereby know
th,e facts as to its true worth." Read,

A Lazy Liver
May be only a tired liver, or a starved
liver. It would bo a stupid as well as
savage thing to beat a weary or starved
man because ho lagged In his work. So
in treating the lagging, torpid liver it is
a great mistake to lash it with strong
drastic drugs. A torpid liver is but an
indication of an ill-nourished, enfeebled
body whose organs aro weary with over
work. Start with the stomach and allied
organs of digestion and nutrition. Put
them in working order and seo how
quickly your liver will become active.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
has made many marvelous cures of "liver
trouble" by Its wonderful control of tho
organs ol digestion and nutrition. It re
stores the normal activity of the stomach,
inceases the secretions of the blood-mak
ing glands, cleanses the system from poi
sonous accumulations, and so relieves tho
liver of the burdens imposed upon it by
tho defection of other organs.

Worst Case Doctors Ever Saw-Suf
fered Untold Misery - Perfect
Cure by Cuticura Remedies.
"My spn, who is now twenty-two years
of age, when four months old begun to
have eczema on his face, spreading quite
rapidly until he was nearly covered. The
eczema was eomethyg terrible, and the
doctor? said it was the worst case they ever
saw. At times his whole body and face
were covered, all but his feet. I used many
kinds of patent medicines to no avail. At
last I decided to try Cuticura, when my boy
was three years and four months old, hav
ing had eczema all that time and suffering
untold misery. I began to use al] three
of the Cuticura Remedies. He was better
in two months; in six months he was well.

Tho Need Which Spring Brings to
AH, and How It is Met.
That, after the long and wearing struggle
with Winter, there is need of a revitalizing
agency of some sort, thc almost universal
demand for what is popularly known as a
"spring medicine," would seem to indicate.
People feel, without doubt, that there has
been a drain on their vital forces, and that
they are not up to the standard of health
and strength required by the demands of
daily life. They want a spur, a tonic, an
invigorant, and they look forward to the
coming heat of Summer with apprehension,
dreading the further call that is to bc made
on i heir already impaired forces. In fact,
they want a Spring medicine.
And the want is natural, and, fortunate
ly, as naturally supplied. Nature has pro
vided thc means, and science has applied
them. In Yager's Sarsaparilla with Celery,
is found a combination, which, while of the
greatest general value, is especially adapted
to the ncqds of thc weakened physical con
dition which follow Winter and precedes
Summer. By purifying and enriching the
blood, strengthening the nerves, giving
restful sleep, creating appetite, and aiding
digestion, Yager's Sarsaparilla with Celery
builds up the entire system and restores it
to its maximum of health and vigor. So
effectual is it, so unrivaled in its sphere,
that in thousands of families its usc has be
come as regular as the recurrence of the
seasons. It is "par excellence" the Spring
medicine. All druggists sell it, 50 cts. a
bottle. Made by Gilbert Broe. & Co.,

Miss J. F. Walsh, of 328 W. 30th St., New York City, writes:-"Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has been of inestimable value in
restoring my health. I suffered from female illness which caused
dreadful headaches, dizziness, and dull pains in my badi, but your
medicine soon brought about a change in my general condition, built
me up and made me perfectly well."
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound cures Female Complaints,
such as Backache, Falling and Displacements. Inflammation and Ulcera
tion, and organie diseases. It is invaluable in preparing for child-birth
and during the Change of Life. It cures Nervous Prostration, Headache,
General Debility, and invigorates the whole system.
