The follqwing Item, which we have
not heretofore printed by request of
the city editor of tho Register, ap
pears in the Ohio State Journal: "A
suit for $25,000 damages for defamatory
libel was filed in the United States cir
cuit court yesterday morning against
tho Marietta Register by the New
York Life Insurance company, of New
York City. The basis of the suit is an
editorial which appeared iD the "Reg
ister on May 11, discussing the death
of Hamilton Disston, the millionaire
saw manufacturer of Philadelphia!
whose hpirs secured u life4 insurance of
81,000,000. The article, which ap
peared in the editorial columns of the
paper, compared the insurance comp
any and its methods, so far as accept
ing tho insurance estimated at $000,000,
carried in the company by Disston, to
the methods of Holmes, the murderer.
The Register in its editorial states that
tho methods of tho company In accept
ing tho. risk were criminal, inasmuch
as they placed an unjust liability upon
the members of the company, which is
a mutual concern. The petition pre
sented by Attorney Michael O'Nell'Jr.,
idrtho plaintiff, states jhat lt- is the
policy of the company to limit all risks
to $100,000, and that Disston did not
have a polloy in thtfponipany in excess
of "that amount, and that tho resources
of the company hayo not been impaired
by1 the payment of tho risk, i1 Tho re
sult of the editorial has been that the
company has lost considerable business
in the community in which the Regis
ter circulates, and the suit is brought
to recover damages resulting there
from. The case will come up for trial
at tho next term of court."

The death of Mr. Benjamin Tupper

Marietta, June 10th, 1843, and was 53
years of age. He was tho son of An

entering the hardware store of his
father in the capacity of clerk. Ho
afterward became a member of tho
Nye Hardware Company, retaining his
connection with the firm until 1870.
He was an active and successful oil op

That hideous and deathly
demon of sickness constipa
tion, is an casy enougn tiling to cure it
you take the right medicine. Constipa
tion is one of the commonest things in the
world. It is really one of the most seri
ous things. Fully nine-tenths of all the
ordinary sickness of mankind is due to
this one cause. If you place an obstruc
tion in the gutter, it will stop the flow of
water, and gradually a mass of poison
ous, putrefying matter will accumulate.
That is exactly what happens in the
digestive organs when constipation be
gins. Poisonous luatter accumulates and
is forced into the blood. It goes all over
the bbdy and causes all sorts of synipi
toins.T A few of these are dizziness, flatu
lence, heartburn, palpitation, headaches,
loss of appetite, loss of sleep, foul breath,
distress after eating, biliousness and erup
tions 'of the skin. These tilings are un
pleasant, but they are not serious. The
serious things come afterward. Doctor
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are for the cure
of constipation. They are tiny, sugar
coated granules, easy to take, mild and
efficient in their action. One is a gentle
laxative, two a mild cathartic. There is
nothing else in the world like them.
There is nothing that takes their place.
There is nothing " just as good," although
lieing and unscrupulous druggists may
sometimes tell you so for their own profit.
Do you want to lose your health so that
the druggist can get rich?
