H Is that Impurity In tho hlood, which, ac
cumulating in tho glands ot tho neck, pro
duces unsightly lumps or swellings; which,
causes painful running sores on tho arms,
legs, or loet; which devclopcs ulcers In tho
eyes, ears, or nose, often causing blindness or
deafness; which Is tho origin of pimples, can
cerous growths, or tho many other manifesta
tions usually ascribed to "humors;" which,
fastening upon tho lungs, causes consumption
and death. Being tho most ancient, It Is tho
most general of all diseases or affections, for
very few persons aro entirely Iroo from it.
By taking Hood's BarsapariUa, which, ly
tho rcmarkablo cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines havo failed, has
proven Itself to bo a potent and peculiar
medicine lor this disease. Some of those
cures aro really wonderful. If you sudor from
scrofula, be sure to try Hood's Sarsaparllla. "
41 My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore neck from tho tlmo she was 22 months
old till Eho became six years ot age. Lumps
formed in her neck, and ono of them after
growing to the slzo of a pigeon's egg, became
a running sore for over three years. Wo gave
hor Ilood's Sarsaparllla, when tho lump and
all indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, aud now sho seems to be a healthy
child." J. S. Caiilile, Naurlght, N. J.

Tho Harrison crowd havo been shak
en up from center, to circumference
by Mr.' Blaine's letter explaining his
position in relation to the McKinley
tariff bill," They appear to regard
the letter as Mr. Maine's pronun-
ciamento, issued to inform hia special
friends and followers that he is still
in the political ring. And if repub
lican opinion here is n. lair reflection
of It elsewhere, it looks very much
like a gigantic Blaine boom wa9
about to be launched on the country,
and that Bre'r Harrison was to be
crowded out 01 tho hurrah, 11 such a
thine can be done. One thine la
very certain, Mr. Blaine's letter,
which contains about nine parts en
dorsement of the Blaine reciprocity
idea to one of the McKinley tariff
act, Is not the work of a sick man,
but of a very shrewd, wide-awake
politician, who is more intent upon
pushing his own fortunes than upon
helping McKinley. The fact is that
Mr. Blaine will never forgive Maj
McKinley for snubbing mm by ig
noring every suggestion he made
when the original McKinley bill was
being constructed, and while he is
too strict n party man to oppose Mc
Kinley's election he would not grieve
any to see him defeated.

There is a rumor that Mr. Harri

Land Office, has resigned, for the
purpose of returning to Indiana. It
was at first rumored that the colored
preacher-politician was going back
home to fight Harrison's renornina
tion, but the fact has now leaked out
that he goes at the special request of
Harrison, to see if he cannot quell
the anti-Harrison, feeling which has
of late shown itself to be rather
strdnjr among the colored voters of
that State, as it would seriously in
terfere with the Harrison prop-ram
me to have it stated upon the
floor of the republican national con
yention that any considerable body
of voters in his own state were op
posed to hi3 renomination.

Col, John H. Savage.
Wo find the following, letter in n
late Issue of the Nashvile Banner:
McMinnville, Tenn., October 14,
1891. I clip the following from the
Banner of the 12th:
"Says the Chattanooga News: 'The
New York Herald the other day, in
writing the obituary of Col. Savage
of Pueblo, Col., who fell dead while
strolling through the art gallery at
Liverpool, England, went to its bi
ographical encylopedia and picked
out the sketch, of Tennessee's Col.
John H. Savage. Tho Herald does
not often make such mistakes, but
for once it slipped. Our Col. Savage
Is 80 years old, but he lacks a great
deal of being in his grave. He Is the
halest and most vigorous man in the
state for his age.' "
The Herald and the News are both
in error. I still live, and must live
about five years to be 80 years old.
The family Bible says I was born on
tho 9th day of October, 1815, which
makes me 76 years and 5 days to this
date. I am informed that
during my sickness In January
and February last it was generally
reported and believed that 1 was
dead, and that in some sections is
still so reported. I have been much
afflicted with the grippe, but have
improved rapidly within the last two
months, and if the attack is not re
newed between this and Christmas,
counting upon the hardy and
long-life races from which I come, I
think I may reasonably hope for ten
years of active life. The people, as a
rule, are in error as to my age. .
I gave myself the name "Old Man
of the Mountains" in this -way: In
some of my first speeches in 1876 and
1878 against state bonds, railroad lob
bies and aspirin? politicans I said
"If I failed to do the good I intend,
like the Old Man of the mountain
(meaning Mount Arrarat), if I failed
to destroy wrong-doers and usurpers
I would cause them to live in con
Btant fear of death."

The Memphis Scimitar thus delrv
ers to the Nashville American a well
deserved rebuke: -
Tne American or yesterday con
tains a long and granhic account of
the scandalous escapade In Nashville
of a young girl from "a neighboring
town," who belongs to "one of the
best families in the state," her father
being "a very prominent man." The
paper adds in connection that if
names were given "one of the biggest
sensations ever developed in tho
state" would be the result.
"jMtner names should be given or
the story should never have been
published. No compromising item
of a personal nature is legitimate
news iii.iess the identity of the per
son or persons alluded ' to is clearly
disclosed. The nameless personality
in print, if we may so dehne it, is
necessarily vicious journalism. It
sets the curiosity of readers on edge
and begets random suspicions which
may, and almost always do, work
the grossest injustice to innocent par
ties. There are a number of towns
situated not far from Nashville, and
among their inhabitants are doubt
less a score or two of girls belonging
to the "best families," perhaps at
least a dozen whose fathers are more
or less "prominent." It is possible
that several of these girls were in
in Nashville when this scandal came
out. Now, what is to prevent evil
minded persons from attempting to
fasten it upon any of them? The
whispers of malice can rarely be
traced directly to their proper source,
and, even if it were otherwise, the
family involved cannot vindicate its
good name without incurring an
odious notoriety. The reputation of
woman is as delicate as a petal of the
magnolia. Touch it ever so gently
and the imprint of the linger can
never be erased. Even if a false ru
mor affecting her honor be amply re
futed the echo never grows so faint
but there are ears which still detect
