Use Pe-ru-na for Coughs, Colds, Grip and
Catarrh A Congressman's Letter.
In every countr' of the civilized world
Si.sters of Charity are known. .Not only
do tlu-y minister to the spiritual and
intellectual needs of the charges com
mitted to their care, but they also
minister to their bodily needs.
With so many children to take care of
and to protect from climate and disease,
these wise and prudent Sisters have
found l'eruna a never failing safeguard.
Dr. Ilnrtman receives many letters
from Catholic Sisters from all over the
United States. A recommend recently
received from a Catholic institution in
Detroit, Mich., reads as follows:.
Dr. S. B. Hartman, Columbus, Ohio:
Dear Sir: "The young girl who
used the Peruna was suffering from
laryngitis and loss of voice. The result
of the treatment was most satisfac
tory. She found great relief, and
after further use of the medicine we
hope to be able to say she is entirely
cured. " Sisters of Charity.
The young girl was under the careof
the Sisters of Charity and used l'eruna
for catarrh of the throat with good
results as the above letter testifies.

NATIONAL AID PLAN.
It Has Support of Good Roailit Advow
catei In Dotb Houses of the
As the time for the cot ivening of con
gress approaches. Interest in important
legislation revives. Among the meas
ures introduced and discussed in the
last congress, which will come up again
In this, there are few if any of greater
importance than the Brownlow bill for
national aid to road building. Mr.
prownlow, of Tennessee, the father of
the bill, is more enthusiastic than ever
for his pet measure, and will reintroduce
it at the first opportunity. He thinks it
is possible to secure its passage by this
congress and the remarkable growth of
favorable sentiment indicates that his
hopes may be realized. It is certain that
the principle involved will have power
ful aid in the house. A large number of
members from different sections stand
ready to support it, notably from the
south and west. The bill is also likely
to receive strong support from the Penn
sylvania, New York and New England
Jelegations. This section of the coun
try not only has the best improved
roads, but has had most experience with
the principle and practice of cooperation
In road building as embodied in the
state aid plan. It is believed that the
representatives from this section will
favor national aid, which is only a more
general application of the principle, of
It Is certain also that the measure will
have active championship in the senate.
Senator Latimer, of South Carolina, is
an enthusiast on the subject of good
roads, and is fully committed to the na
tional aid plan. It Is also claimed that
a number of northern senators will sup
port the measure.
It Is difficult to see how congress can
avoid taking up the good roads ques
tion if the rural free mail delivery is to
be extended much farther. Already the
people cf many districts are muttering
because extension of the free delivery
system has been refused to them. Such
mutterings will soon develop into indig
nant protests, and may result in bitter
opposition to the whole free delivery
system. How, indeed, can the govern
ment justify the granting of a great
blessing like this to those districts where
the people need it least, and the with
holding of it from those-who need it
most? Yet, as every well-informed man
knows, rural free delivery without good
roads is impracticable. What then is
left for congress but to act under the
constitutional provision which provides
for the establishment of post-roads?
And certainly there is no easier way of
accomplishing this than by the national
aid plan, which will make the local com
munities bear a large part of the bur

each end to take a belt or hook from the
chain. In the spring as soon as the
frost is out of the ground, this scraper
is put on the ruts and levels them off
quickly. A plank is thrown across the
middle of the scraper, and on this the
driver stands. If extra weight is needed
a stone can be placed on the plank. The
curved shape at the back brings all the
dirt into the ruts and levels the road
much smoother than where a straight

The liar Crop of 1003.
The. hay crop of the United States
in 1903, according to an estimate of the
Cincinnati Price Current, has amount
ed to about 62,750.000 tons, which is
about 3,000,000 tons larger than the
crop last year, and about 5,500,000 tons
or nearly ten per cent above the aver
age of the past fen years. Compared
to the yield in 1902 this makes a short
age in the New England states of 3,847
and a gain in the group of states com
prising New York. New Jersey, Penn
sylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Indiana
of 4.11 per cent., and in Illinois, Wis
consin, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska
a gain of 4.20 per cent. New York,
Michigan and Indiana show slight
losses, and New Jersey, Pennsylvania
and Ohio slight gains.
