Mr. Cbewning was In Maiden on that

with him. Finding escape impossible
Nunlee drew a revolver and shot Frank
Miller in the breast, Indicting a wound
which caused his death one hour later.
Xunlce then lell the aaloon and went to
a storo near by where he got a '.doubles
barreled shotgun. As Nunlee was com

had followed him from tbe saloon, was

Inson then came up, when tbe former
drtd upon Nunlee, wounding him la the

wounded, ran into a millinery store near

Nunlee passed through the store and tell

the canse of the quarrel a feud of long

stepping stone to health. When the

built up by tbe use ot that Inimitable

whole system experience the beneficial
effect. Appetito returns, the system is
refreshed by healthful slumber, the
nerve grow strong and culm, tbe de

Ite-Opealua" a Thoroughfare.
In order to guard against results ut
terly subversive of health, it is absolute
ly essential that the grand thoroughfare
or avenue of the system, tbe bowels,
should be re-opened a speedily as po
sioie wuen ttiey become obstructed. If
they are not, tbe bile Is misdirected into
tbe, blood; tbe liver become torpid;
viscid bullous matter gets into tbe stow-
sch, and produoos indigestion; head
aches ensue, and other symptoms are
pioduoed, which a prolongation ot the
exciting cause only tends to aggravate.
The aperient properties of Hostettcr's
Stomach Bitters constitute a most useful
agent In overcoming constriction ol tbe
bowels, and promoting a regular habll
of body. It Is Infinitely stipetlor to the
drastic cathartics frequently used for the
purpose, since It does not, like them, act
violently but produces a natural, pain
less effect, which, does ;not Impair Uie
tone of the evacuatory organs, which it
Invigorates Instead of weakening, Tbe
stomach and liver, also, ludeed the en
tire system, K strengthened and regu
lated by It. '
