passed out, and after he got into the lot he
discovered a horse and a wagon, and on the

The town council has gone to a great
deal of trouble and considerable expense to
procure shade trees for the town, and it is
a shame to see how little their efforts are
appreciated. In front of both of the colorced
school houses the children use the newly
set out trees as climbing posts, thereby tear
ing them out of the ground. The town
concil should have these brats ar
rested and put into tbe guard house,
and perhaps it would teach themr
that they have no more right to de
stroy the trees on the streets than they have
to destroy the property of private individu
al. The recent lot of trees put out
have been carefully selected and set
out by experienced hands who .are
anxious that the trees shall live,
as a good part of their pay depends on
the trees living. The prospect is that the
trees will live if they are not disturbed, and
Manning will be the best shaded town is

A HARD CORNER.
The age of 30 is a hard corner for a wvo
man to turn, and 351is still harder. She
feels that she is fast leaving her youth be
hina her. But there is no reason why a
woman should be faded anda passe at 35, or
even 45. The chief cause of the early fad.
ing of American women is found in the fact
that many of them suffer from some form of
female weakness or disease which robs the
face of its bloom, draws dark circles about
the eyes, brings early wrinkles and sallow
ness, and stamps the face and figure with
signs of ill-health. Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription will cure all these troubles;
will bring back the lost bloom, and remove
the pains and ailments which make women
grow old before their time. Guaranteed to
