There are a number of our subscribersf
who are considerbly behind with their sub-A
scriptions and we know that it is not their
desire to keep us out of our money, but as
wemust have money to get out the papr
wo will have to insist upon those in arrearst
settling up. We therefore give fair notie
that on the first day of June we will strike
oftf names; this is not a pleasure for us but
it is better to take off such names asill
noat pay than to increase the indebtedne'ss
and still get nothing. Another matter we
wish to cadl attentionl to. After the first
day of June we will strike from our mail
ing lists the names of persons who have.
been getting the paper free. We give this L
notice in time and if the Times is worth S

How to Look blodJ
Good looks are really more than skin d
eep, depending entirely on a healthy con- e
ition of all the vital organs. If the liver
inactive, you have a bilious look; if yourjE
omach is disordered, you have a dyspep -t
c look; if ycur kidneys are affected, you c
ave a pinched look. Secure good health ti
id you will surely have good looks. "Elec- t
-ic .tsitters" is a good alterative and tonic. ti
cts directly on the stomach, liver and kid
eys, purifies the blood, cures pimples, c
lotches and boils and gives a good com
exion. Every bottle guaranteed. Sold
