Nature's great remedy, Kidney-Wort, has
cured many obstinate cases of piles. This
inopt distressing malady generally arises
from constipation and a bad condition of
the bowels. Kidney-Wort acts at the same
time as a cathaitic and a healing tonic, re
moves the cause, cures the disease and pro
motes a healthy state of the affected organs.
James F. Moycr, carriage Man'fr., of Myers-

by it of a verv bad case of piles which tor

The Sir Knights' Memorial Day dem

among which was the Chicago Convention,
which drew largely upon the Knights of
Centralia and several other points from
whence "solid delegations" had been prom

Knights all went home Sunday, the former
becaue of the fire in Paducah, which de
stroyed their elegant asylum, and the latter
through sympathy, no doubt. The Pa hi

of their bretheran here and elsewhere, in

the tluv a inarch was a hard one.
lasting weil into the dark .shade of tho
evening. Just when it was becoming;
too dark to seo distinctly, orders were
received to pack the "train across a
.small stream near Utiiontown, Faqtiier
County. Tho Lieutenant saw tho head
of tho train in the proper field, and
rode back to his brid 'e over tho
stream to hurry up tho laggards. As
each wagonniastcr came- up Cknden
ii in would remark:
"Hurry up those mule.-, there; we're
just going into park."
Itus state of things went on somo
time until the Lieutenant, growing im
patient at a particularly wide break,
"lrot up those mules, there!
"Walk those mules!" said a grave,
quiet voice from out of tho darkness
on the side of the road.
"Never vou mind thoso mules." re
plied the Lieutenant tartly, and there
was siicnco lor a few moments, except
tlhi noise of tho train, which toiled
along until another break showed it
self and brought tho command:
"Hurry up thoso mules!"
"Walk those mule-,!" said the quiet
voice out of tho darkness.
"Don't bother yourself about those
mules, over there, if you dou't want to

'J bo Marriage flotation.
Judge Jameson concludes nu article
In the April XoKh Airirun Ilcvkw
entitled "S'lall our Civilization be Pre
served" as follows:
A word, now, as to the perils which
threaten us in connection with the
marriage relation. The evil referred
to is onlv ono of a multitude that tlow
from the same source, a general let
ting down of public sentiiueut in rc-
n-'iril in llio irmetitr of ninrrinrro.
While the Protestant view, that mar
riage is a civil contract and not a sa
crament, has doubtless a basis of truth,
it is not the wholo truth. Marriage is
a civil contract aud a great deal more;
it is tho creation of a status tho most
sacred and the most important known
to tho law or to human life. Regarded
merely as a contract, it is natural to
conclude- that it may bo lightly dis
solved; and, in fact, from precisely
such a conclusiou Hows the disastrous
flood of divorces that is overwhelming
our Protestant communities. Far bet
ter than this would it bo if tho inflex
ible rule of tho Roman Church wero
adopted and enforced. Aud ouo haz
ards ldtlo iu predicting that, for tho
salvation of society, such must bo tho
result, unless there shall bo restored to
tho status of marriage something of the
solemnity and sacredness imputed to it
by that church. It is needless to mul
tiply words. Our divorce and marriage
laws must be revised, made uniform
and more strict, and bo rigidly enforc
ed, or the disorganization ot society
now threatened by tho increased loos
ening of the marital ties will become
complete. So long ns marriage is re
garded as a mere civil contract, its
higher purpose, the rearing of off
spring, will bo overlooked; its baser
uses 'alone will bo esteemed until,
finally, w hatever stands in tho way of
these will, nt any cost, bo removed. It
must bo admitted, however, that while
the law, if amended and more strictly
enforced, will do .something, it cannot
alone reach tho inmost seat of tho evil,
in the perverted sentiment of the pub
lic in regard to marriage. Since this
sentiment rests not so much upon er
rors in reasoning as upon corrupt incli
nations, looie or legal interdict can do
little to cornet it. To that, perhaps,
religion alone is equal. And w o cannot
better close than by stating our con
viction, that for tho saving of civiliza
tion from tho destruction threatening
it, as well from tho prevalence of
crime and social immorality ns from
the thickening dangers of industrial
discontent and conflict, religion is tho
most effective instrumentality; "ot tho
religion that builds tompio3 from
which it excludes the poor; not tho re
ligion which shoots philosophical treat
ises from its pulpits over tho heads of
thoso who most need its consolations
in tho condition of social contempt and
proscription in which they aro hold;
but tho religion which roaches its baud
to tlw plain 'men. and women w ho form
the bulk of our race and do its work;
which wins, instead of repellino; them,
and which shows itself tho friend and
minister of tho toiling millions rather
than of the millionaires who bvildits

Abi di im Lincoln, while a resident
of N-.v ';il. i.i. 111., followed various
a voi:a ; j.ti -. With all the rest he was
".sioi 'r-l.eep' r'' and "postmaster. On a
certain oeca-iin ouo of his friends,
having learned that an agent of the
poswdlioo department and a "drum
mer" wero in' t!io village the former
to collect what was due the govern
ment from Lincoln, as postmaster, tho
latter to receive from him, as trader,
what ho wasowingthe (inn represented
by himself, and knowing Lincoln was
never overburdened with spare funds,
went into the store nnd offered to lend
him a sum sufficient to meet the
claims ho was soon to bo called upon
to settle. "You aro very kind," said
Lincoln, "out I do not think I shall re
quire your assistance.". Within a few
minutes the agent entered their pros
ei.ee, and Lincoln took an old stocking
from a drawer, out of which ho poured
a lot of copper and silver coin tho
latter mostly in pieces of a small de
nomination. "There is tho very money
1 have taken on account of the post
otliee," ho remarked to tho agent,
"and I think you will lind it the exact
amount duo you." It was, to a cent.
This business had hardly been con
cluded when in came tho "drummer."
Lincoln had recourse to another old
stocking, with a similar result. So
soon as tho two wero again by them
selves tho frieudsaid: "I suppose, wore
a third creditor to present himself a
third stocking would enable you to set
tle with him," smiling. "Yes," re
turned tho future president, "Look
here," and ho held up three other
stockings. "In ouch of these is the
sum 1 severally owe to threo parties,
the only persons in the world to whom
1 am pecuniarily indebted. I seo you
are amused at my method of transact
ing business. I never allow myself to
use money that is not mine, however
sorely pressed I may bo, and I intend
to bo prepared to pay my bills when
they become due without delay or in
convenience to those whom I owe.
Tho simple system which I Lave
adopted using :i stocking to represent
each creditor and placing in it tho
money, to be passed to the creditor
himself at solid future day renders
the former unnecessary and tho latter
possible. " litd.iinnpijUs Sentinel.

A rough calculation shows that tho

Of course, if Chili should so desire
she can retain this territory of Tara
paca, paying all of these demands, on
tho chance that the wealth of that sec

would suit her convenience. Should

that the powers would instantly pre
