help to awll tbe rank and It would eer
tataly have been money in their pocket
If they had done so, (or the two thousand,
visitors did not close their eyes to the

We felt aertaln after enjoying such a cele
bration a th Myitlc Krew made for the
pleasure of tbe Ctlroltes last fourth of J uly
that the Mardl Ores festivities would be
both an honor and profit to Cairo. Our
citizens need not hereafter go to other
cities on the above mentioned days to see
sights or enjoy themselves, but let thim
save that money and help to make Cairo
a point to which strangers from all di
rections may coma on these days. We
have heard several merchants say their
sale at these times amount to several
buudrcd dollars. That is what
we like to hear, and If all
will put their shoulders to the wheel,
Cairo will yet bo set "upon a bill." On
th coming fourth let us not see that

they did not, We will say here that the

The mortuary statistic of the who!
elvillad world show that about ona-flft a
of all mankind die of consumption aloaa,
and tie number of deaths, due to con
sumption bears a greater ratio to tbe
wboe number than that ot any other
threj diseases together. Moreover, in
vestigation, proves that this ratio Is stead
ily IncTtraslut;. Its Increasing prevalence
has led to the popular belief tbat Con
sumption Is Insurable. Every year bun
dreds of these suflarcrsfeek.ln the sunny
retreats of Florida or the dry atmosphere
of Colorado, for health and find only a
grave. Tht influence ot the atmosphere
the only remedial ageut tbat either
Florida or Colorado can aQord the cons
suuipttve-is at be-1 only palliative. The
cure ot consumption depends upon two
essential ciuditious: 1st, tbe arrest ol
tbe abnormal breaking dowu of the tis
sues, which prevents emaciation, and 9d,
the restoration ot .healthy nutrition, in
order to stop the formation ot tubercu
lous matter. Fultill these conditions, and
consumption is as curable as fever. To
fulfill thie conditions the required rem
edy must Increase tbe appetite, favor tbe
assimilation of food, and eurich the blood,
thus retarding tbe. development of tub
ercles. To , Accomplish this, a more
powerful alterative tban Dr. Pierce's
Gulden Medical Discovery has never been
discovered. At the same time, It soothes
the irritation of the nervous system pro
duced by violent cougbiug, which In its
turn eo often leads to more serious re
sults. The use cf "expectorants" in 300
sumption Is absolutely suicidal, l or
while removing the tuberclos already
tormtd, they produce jet moru serious
results by inflaming and destroying the
sound and healthy tissues. Consumption
requires a remedy that will soothe while
It relieves; harsh medicines, bat add fuel
to tbe flame that already threatens to
consume the system.. The Golden Medi
cal Discovery fulfills these- conditions,
