Forty years ago an old 'doctor was
putting up a medicine for diseases of
tbe blood, tbat cured the worst cases
of blood troubles, and time proved
tbat the cures were permanent.
After many years I secured the pre
scription (being a druggist), and
took each ingredient separately and
referred to my U. R. Dispensatory
and other authoritative books on
medicine and found the medical prop

the Interstate Commerce commission
would refuse to grant the increase.

is an intrastate matter rather than an
interstate matter, the Kentucky State
Railroad commission refused to han
dle it, leaving it to the Interstate
Commerce commission to settle.

METHODIST OPPOSE CAR-PKNTIER-DEMPSEY
Washington, June 10. Declaring
that it was astonishing that "any
state in uic inicncan union would
tolerate an exhibition not only bloody
and brutal in itself, but intended to
appeal to all that is abysmal in the
average man,", the Board of Temper
ance and Public Morals of the Meth
odist Episcopal church, issued a
statement, today condemning the
Dcmpscy-Carpcnticr fight to be held
at Jersey City July 2. All "right think

"ought to sec to it that this is the
last prize fight fought on American

perfectly harmless, character-building
sport," but the Dempsey-Carpcn-ticr
