A Traveling Pain.
There is no disease quite so peculiar
as rheumatism. The pain which is in
the little finger to day may be in one of
the toes to-morrow. Ana so it travels
all over the system, seeking an outlet,
and finding none it settles permanently
in one place, and from its home other
pains start out, and settle down and
multiply. Dr. Drummond's Lightning
Remedies for rheumatism attack the
disease from all points at once, and
their work is always successful. If
your druggist has not got these reme
dies, write to the Drummond Medicine
Co., New York, and describe your case.

DEALERS in ready made clothing
represent their wares as "Tailor made'
"custom made" &c., but they ask the
regular prices of ready made and the
boast is understood. But when they
offer to take your measure, promise to
have the clothes made for you and
charge the tailors price, they impose
"upon your credulity Whether their
misrepresentation is wilful or negligent
the result to you is the same,
Most men want what they pay for and
are willing to pay for the superior
quality of made to measure clothes.
Our garments are cut and made to your
measure in our own workshop in But
ler, not by fair-to-middling work
men, but by expert tailors.
