for mayor and Messrs. Poage and
Booth, candidates for aldermen, spoke.
Mr. Wander also mado some replies to
an attack mado upon him last Satur
day night. Tho meeting, after tho
first few speeches, was an uprourous
one, tho friendB of eoh candidate con
spiring to keep his opponents from

Height of Cruelty.
Norvous women seldom receivo the
sympathy they deserve. While often
tho pictures of health, they are con
stantly ailing. To withhold sympathy
from theso unfortunates is the height
oforuolty. Thoy have a wpak heart,
causing shortness of breath, fluttering,
pain in side weak and hungry spells,
and finally swelling of ankles, oppres
sion, chokiDg, smothering and dropgy.
Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure is just
tho thing for them. For their nerv
