A POLITICAL ANNEX.
Lincoln Institute is now being
used as a political annex where
party workers administration sup
porters are rewarded by given
them jobs. Last June on the ac
count of the shortness of funds, the
matron in the young men's
dormitory anil the only colored
janitor employed these were
dropped, but three white men were
employed as janitors. Recently one
of these white men resigned as
janitor, and the honorable Execu
tive Hoard of Regents without con
sulting the wishes of the presi
dent of the institution, elected one,
Mr. Bolton (white), a retired
prison guard to fill the vacancy.
The best appropriation the legisla
ture could give Lincoln Institute is
a Board of Regents.

Catarrh Cannot be Cured
with Local Applications, as tney
cannot reach the seat of the disease.
Catarrh is a blood or constitutional
disease, and in order to cure it you
must take internal remedies. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is taken internally,
and acts directly on the blood and
mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is not cpiack medicine. It
was prescribed bv one of the best
physicians in this country for
years, and is a regular prescription.
It is composed of the best tonics
known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on
the mucous surfaces. The perfect
combination of the two ingredients
is what produces such wonderful
results in curing Catarrh. Send

The University curators have
had the two large metal lions
removed from over the entrance to
Academic Hall. II. J. and C. E.
Grihble did the work. The
lions were of zinc, and about 12 feet
long. Several times they have
been striped with old gold and
black, and transformed into tigers,
to celebrate some student victory.
The Tigers, not the lion, is the
king of beasts at Missouri Univer
sity. The lions now repose in the
basement of the University await

Owing to close confinement in

touch of indigestion, so much so as
to cause me intense pain. My
tongue was coated; had severe
pains around my eyes and felt mis
erable. Through the persuasion of
a friend I tried Ripans Tabules, and
after taking them for two days I
obtained some relief. I kept on
taking them, and can safely say
they have cured me.
The five-cent package is enough
for an ordinary occasion. The

a supply for a year.
