Labor's Lecture Tonne.
As has been slated, the Tri-City
Labor congress at its last meeting
considered the question of having a
lecture course by men who have been
prominent as educators in leading
educational institutions, and whose
views meet with the approval of the
industrial classes. The men whom
they desire to hear are such as Trof.
Bcmis, who was let out of the Chi
cago university on account of the
plain statements of Lis opinions;
Prof. De Leon, who dropped from
the faculty of Columbia college;
Prof. Huron, of Grinnell, who recent
ly created quite a sensation; Prof.
Ely, of Wisconsin, and others of like
class. It is not quite certain yet
that the course will be arranged, or
the lecturers who are wanted can be
secured, but a committee has been
appointed to see what can be done.
Alt tn Day.

That's an experience which few peo

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills which vanish before proper ef
forts gentle efforts pleasant efforts

the knowledge that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi

family laxative. SSyrnpof Fijrs. prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value pood health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness, without debilitating the

If in the enjoyment of pood health,
and the system is regular, then laxa

If afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful

then one should have the best, and with
