Dr. Wm. E. Barker's Experience
( From the Rochester Times )
Half a century ngo there was no
city in the world where an eminent
specialist had the opportunities
that were presented to one in Lon
don; realizinjr this fact Dr. Barker,
after :raduatinj from IIeidelburx,
located in London. His practice
grew so rapidly that at the end of
live years he established the lar?
est nractice of any physician in
that city. His practice was con
lined to chronic cases only in " the
treatment of rheumatism, catarrh,
kidney and bladder diseases. He
used one never-failing; prescrip
tion this same prescription he
had written thousands of times;
and he had seen patients come into
his oflice on crutches, who said
they had been troubled with rheu
matism for 15 or 20 years, and
after they used this special pre
scription for two or three days,
they would come walking to his
oflice, as nimbly as u school boy,
and thank him for the good he had
done them. The Doctor said in
an interview that one man about
45 years old came to him one day
and said ho had been injured while
working at the carpenter trade
about twenty years before, and
had suffered constantly since with
kidney trouble. He had tried
everything to get relief, but noth
ing seemed to do him any good.
.He asked the Doctor if he really
knew of anything that would do
him any good, and he told him of
a never-failing remedy for all
chronic cases like his. He wro.te
him a prescription and told him to
take it a week and then come and
let him know how he was getting
along. This man came back to
his oflice in just four days and
said he had not felt as well in his
life. He also stated that his
daughter, whom he had taken out
of school because her eyes were
too weak to study, and she could
hardly see from one of thejn at
all; she had been treated by four
eye specialists without relief, and
after he had taken this prescrip
tion for two days he says he saw
it was helping him so much he let
her take some of it, and to their
meat surprise, she improved won
derfully almost from the first dose.
He told him that it was only a
week's time after she commenced
to take the medicine until she
could see as well as ever and was
i'.ble to return to school.
It was not until after hundreds
of silch remarkable cases had been
treated by Dr. Barker with this
same prescription that lie was pre
vailed upon in the interest of hu
manity to allow the wonderful
prescription to be put up so that
every sufferer could have it at a
very small cost. The public can
now secure this prescription under
the name of bloodine, at drug
stores, or The Bloodine Laborato
ries, Boston, Mass., will supply
a six weeks' treatment (six bot
tles) for $2.50; 50 cents a bottle,
trial bottle and booklet, 10 cents.

When thieves fall out honest
men will get their dues, says a
homely old adage. Not imputing
such sins against them, we are
nevertheless moved to remark
that Caleb Powers and his right
bower, Charley Finley, have fal
len out oyer a judicial nomina
tion and they no longer speak as
they pass by. In fact it is said
that Finley is so hot in the collar
that he has already announced his
candidacy for Congress two years
hence, thus putting it up to Pow
ers to call his hand or take the
consequences. It all conies from
Powers over-reaching himself and
imagining that he has been anoint
ed and delegated to do the Atlas
stunt. However, it looks like lie
will discover that his shoulders are
not broad enough. Lexington

A Wise Decision.
The action of the Democratic
State Executive Committee in
calling a primary to select the
nominees for State offices seems to
us to be a wise decision. The
people are beginning to demand
fair play in politics as in business
matters, and the fairest way that
a uolitical party can select its nom
inees is by a fairly conducted pri
mary election. Under a primary
election the rank and file of the
party dictate who the nominees
shall be; while in conventions the
nominees are selected by political
bosses or tricksters.
We have never seen it fail that
when a candidate felt solid with
the masses of the party he was
anxiou& to submit his chances in a
primary. On the other hand we
have noticed that the oflice seeker
who felt a little shaky about his
standing with the rank and file of
the party always insisted on a con
vention; always excusing his po
sition on the ground that it was
the "cheapest" way.
Gentlemen of the Committee,
in behalf of the rank and lile of
Scott county Democrats we con
gratulate you on your action.

no handles, and was lifted by means

church, where the services were held,
the door was too small to admit the
