The other creditors learned of the
transfer and raised a row, for they ex
pected something out of the last clean

other person started for Phoenix with
the bullion, but several of the creditors
with a constable who had legal papers
galoro drove to a point where tlioy
thought to intercept the woman and
tho precious bullion. She was too
smaitand outwitted them by coining
over a ciicuitnus loute, aniving beie

Two Lives Saved.
Mrs. Phoebe Thomas of Junction
City, 111., was told by her doctors she
had consumption and that there was
no hope for her, but two bottles of Dr.
King's New Discovery completely cured
her, and she saj-s it saved her life. Mr.
Thomas Kggcrs, 139 Florida street,
San Francisco, suffered frotn a dread
ful cold, approaching consumption,
tried without result everything else,
then bought ono bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery, aud in two weeks was
cured. Uo is naturally thankful. It
is such results, of which these are
samples, that prove the wonderful ,
efficacy of this measure in coughs and
colds. Free trial bottles at D. J.
Brannen's drug store. Regular size,
