The election of McClellau as
Mayor of New York shows what
democrats can do when they try.
His plurality of seventy thousand is
significant and points to a national
victory for democracy next year.
The result of Tuesday's elections
throughout the country show de
cided gains for the democrats. The
greatest victory was iu the City of
New York, where George B. Mc
Clellan, democrat, defeated Seth
Low, fusionist, by a plurality of

Of course, Massachusetts went

The Best Remedy lor Croup.
From the Atchison, Kan., Daily Globe.
This is the season when the
woman who knows the best reme
dies for croup is in demand in every
neighborhood.- One of the most
terrible things in the world is to be
awakened in the middle of the
night by a whoop from one of the
children. The croup remedies are
almost as sure to be lost, in case of
croup, as a revolver is sure to be
lost in case of burglars. There
used to be an old fashioned remedy
for croup, known as hive syrup and
tolu, but some modern mothers 6ay
that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
is better, and does not cost so much.
It causes the patient to "throw up
the phlegm" quicker, and gives
relief in a shorter time. Give this
remedy as soon as the croupy cough
appears and it will prevent the at-'cut off maladies no matter how se
lack. It never fails and is pleasant j vere and irrespective of old age.

The stately home of Mr. and Mrs.
T. M. Moore on the evening of the
30th ultimo was the scene of much
mirth and gaiety, the occasion being
the celebration of their crystal wed
ding by the host aud hostess. The
married element of the social world
of Bolivar had been on the qui vive
for a fortnight past in anticipation
of this happy event. Dainty invi
tations were issued on crystal board.
Lone maidens ' looked in vaiu for
one, but to no purpose, the prefix
Mrs." was the only open sesame
to be one of the favored guests at
this opening function of the sea
son's festivities. Resourceful
brains and deft fingers transformed
the parlor, reception hall and sitting
room into a perfect bower of love
liness. The pictures and bric-a-brac
were draped with white, over
which had been sprinkled crystal
dust. Broad bands of white rib
bon, spangled with stars, were fes
tooned from' the corners of the
rooms to the chandeliers in the cen
ter. Old time candelabra with
white candles and white Bhades
were conspicuous. The numerous
lights twinkling from every con
ceivable corner brought out all the
hidden daintiness of these decora
tions. Ferns, palms and cut flow
ers added a touch ol really to a
scene that would otherwise have
been taken for fairyland, so thought
the guests as they stepped from
prosaic life across the threshold.
Three score and nine invitations
had been issued, to which about
twenty couples responded. The
hours were passed in pleasant con
versation and in listening to vocal
and instrumental music. Choice
refreshments, consisting of salad,
chocolate, ices and cakes were serv
ed at eleveu o'clock.
The bride of fifteen winters was
becomingly gowned in white, the
groom wore the regulation black.
As an evidence 01 tue esteem in
which this couple is held, the fol

The hostess carried out the Hal
low'een idea by having pumpkin
faces, illustrating differeut expres
sions, peeping at the guests as they
entered the front balcony.
As honored guests on this occa
eion were Dr. T. E. Moore and
Mrs. Amanda Coates, whose bright
conversational sallies and lively
movements belied the fact that 84
aud VC years are to their credit.

Stepped Against a Hot Stove.
A child of Mr9. Geo. T. Benson,
when getting his usual Saturday
night bath, stepped back against a
hot stove which burned him severe
ly. The child was in great agony
and his mother could do nothing to
pacify him. Remembering that she
had a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain
Balm in the house, she thought Bhe
would t-y it. In lees than half an
hour after applying it the child was
quiet and asleep, and in less than
two weeks was well. Mrs. ISenson
is a well known resident of Kellar,

liniment and especially valuable for
burns, cuts, bruises and sprains.
