the children ainswer the dinner bell and
lushl into the dIning rooml. Ohl! the
gratification a t-ood appetite alords as
our noon day's meal is set before us.
But this va!ant chair, what does it
mean? "Oh, that is Uncle Charloy's
seat. (uess he don't feel like eatini,,
he's got dyspepsia. you know." Dys
pepsia ! horrors ! Deliver us from dys
pepsia. What's the use of being plagued
with such an ailment anyway? What's
the ii-e having a stomach so irritated
and1sore thai. ev,ei one bit of food gives
it distres:5.: V hy not heal the soreness and
allaV the irritation and strengthenl its
tlscular processes, by using lA.anic
Blood Balm. W ill It cure? It certanly
will. Many, many a former dyspeptic
owes his enjoyment of' life to It. 11. B.

Democratic members who succeeded in
t he election of General P'almer as United
States Senator after voting solidly for
him 115 times. Farmer Cockrell made
ill address. Ile said lie had not come
back to the Democratic party and
would not till it became the party of the
people. Ile decleared however, he had
always intended to vote for Palmer,
provided the Farmers could notelect
their man. In conclusion Cockfell said
inpressively, now, on behalf of 4,000,000
farmers, I wish to varn you that you
cannot make (rover Cleveland the next
President of the (*nited States. A large
portion of the audience appearently
only heard the words "Cleveland" and
"next President," and yelled with de
