Says Dr. Edwards, a Well-Knowa
Dr. F. M. Edwards for 17 years treated
gcores of women for liver and bowel
ailments. During these years he gave to
his patients a prescription made of a few
well-known vegetable ingredients mixed
with olive oil, naming them Dr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets. You will know them by
their olive color.
These tablets are wonder-workers on the
liver and bowels, which cause a normal
action, carrying off the waste and poison
ous matter in one's system.
If you have a pale face, sallow look, dull
eyes, pimples, coated tongue, headaches, a
listless, no-good feeling, all out of sorts,
inactive bowels, you take one of Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets nightly for a time
and note the pleasing results.
Thousands of women as well as men
take Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets the suc
cessful substitute for calomel now and
then just to keep in the pink of condition

Elder Alex Sanders, aged 83
3'ears, died at the home of his daugh
ter, Mrs. H. H. Harris, at Jackson,
Tuesday, about eight a. m. Elder
Sanders was one of the best-known
ministers and educators in Central
Kentucky. He was born in Millers
burg. The house in which he was
born stood on a part of what is now
the Millersburg College campus. He
was one of several children and is
survived by one brother, Mr. James
Sanders, of Bloomington, 111., and one
sister, Mrs. Mattie Vanderen, of Cyn
thiana. He was a brilliant man, and
began life when quite young, as an
educator. He was also a singer of
some ability, and gave much of his
time in his early years to this art.
For a time he conducted a music
store in Paris, and was a teacher in
a number of schools, both in and out
of Kentucky. About 1878 he estab
lished Bourbon College, a school for
young ladies at Paris, conducting
the same until 1885, after which he
established a school at Boonesboro,
Owsley, county. In 1891 he gave up
school work and devoted himself en
tirely to ministerial work in the
Christian church, of which he had
Inner been a member, and did minis
terial work at all times in his early J
life, though he did not accept a
charge as pastor until 1891, after
which time he held several charges,'
many of them out of Kentucky. The
last charge he held in his declining
years was one for a short time about
two years ago in New York. Early
in life he was united in marriage to
Miss Mary V. Shaw, who was a bril
liant lady, and rendered much valua
ble assistance in all of his literary at
tainments. Their married life was a
long happy one, and, before separated
by death, they celebrated tneir goiaen
anniversary. Mrs. Sanders was four
years his junior, and preceded-him to
the grave by four years. They are
survived by five children, two sons,
F. E. Sanders, of Aliance, N. B., and
W. E. Sanders, of Cincinnati, O.,
tVirA rlaiieMers. Mesdames C. E.
Perine, of Custer, S. D., H. H. Hairis,
of Jackson, Ky., and W. G. Dailey. of
Millersburg. Mr. Sanders had been
in failing health for more than a
year. The greater part of this time,
however, he has been an invalid.
Last summer he went from the home
of his daughter, Mrs. W. G. Dailey. at
Millersburg, to that of another
daughter, Mrs. H. H. Harris, where
he has since resided. About ten days
ago his health began failing rapidly,
though he was confined to hia bed
but two days prior to his death. The
remains were brought from jacKsou
to home of his daughter, Mrs. W. G.
Dailey, Wednesday morning, and
were interred in Millersburg Ceme
tery, Wednesday at two p. m., after a
short service- at the grave, conducted
by Elder W. E. Ellis, pastor of -the
Paris Christian church. Among the
near relatives present were Professor
and Mrs. H. H. Harris and aaugnier,
Miss Virginia Harris, of Jackson,
Mr. W. E. Sanders, of Cincinnati, O.,
and his aged sister, Mrs. Mattie Van
deren, of Cynthiana. The pall-bearers
were Dr. C. B. Smith, H. D. Jones,
