A POINT TO REMEMBER.
If you wish to purify your blood you
'should take a medicine which cures blood
diseases. The record of cures by Hood's
Sarsaparilla proves tiat this is the best
medicine for the blood ever produced.
Hood's Sarsaparilla cures the most stub
born cases and it is the medicine for you
to take your blood ts impure.
Hood's Pills are the best after dinner

E~rnMANNING TntEs.-In the local
column of your issue of the 17th inst., I
noti<-e the following statement: "The net
profit of our local Dispensary since its
establishment is $2,118.5-4." This is an
error, the above amount is the net profit
for the year 1896. The Manning Dispen
sary was opened the 24th day of July, 1893.
During the months May, June and July,
in the year 1894. the Dispensary was closed
under an adverse decision of the State Sn
preme Court. The following statement
will show the net profit for each year:
Net profit for five months in year 1893,
Net profit for nine months in year 1894,
Net profit for the year 1895, $1,117.35.
Net protit for the year 1896, $2,118.54.
Total net profit siuce establishment to
December 31st, 1896, $5,720.93.
It will be noticed that the net profit for
the year 1895 as compared with parts of
year 1893-94 and the year 1896, is small. In
this year, the percentage was largely -
duced in an attempt to discourage illheit
dealers, which proved very effectual.

Paraffin is oue of the most valuable
products of petroleum, and its manufac
turc has been brought to such perfection
that it is scarcely possible to improve
upon it. By the most approved processes
the wax is redistilled for the purpose
'of reducing to the desired gravity and
crystallizing the wax. Then the oil is
frozen by processes similar to those em
ployed for producing artificial ice. The
apparatus for this work is of the most
complete and scientific construction.
Enormously powerful pumps force the
frozen oil into filter presses and convert
the wax into a solid cake. The uses of
paraffin are manifold, and every detail

"But I didn't get licked. I licked
