It is very hard to stand idly by and
see our dear ones suffer while await
ing the arrival of the doctor. An
Albany (N. Y.) dairyman called at a
drug store there for a doctor to come
and see his child, then very sick with
croup. Not finding the doctor in, be
left word for him to come at once on
his return. He also bought a bottle
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
which ho hoped would give some re
lief until the doctor should arrive.
In a few hours he returned, saying
the doctor need not come, as the child
was much better. The druggist. Otto
Schol-, savs the family has since rec
ommended Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy to their neighbors and friends
until be has a constant demand for it
from that part of the country. For

To the enterprising proprietors.
Messrs. Young and McCombs, is due
much credit for the great pains and
expense incurred in giving the people
a chance to enjoy an occasion of this
kind, very seldom seen outside the
larger cities. It evinces a pluck and
determination to give the people here
all that larger communities enjoy,
and ought lo redound to their own
good in increased appreciative patron
age. THEY RIDICULE IT.
Many People Ridicule the Idea of
an Absolute Cure for Dyspep
sia and Stomach Troubles.
Kidleule. However, is Not Argument, and
Facts Are Stubborn Things. '
Stomach troubles are so common,
and in most cases so obstinate ot
cure that people are apt to look with
suspicion on any remedy claiming to
le a radical, permanent cure for dys
pepsia and indigestion. Many such
pride themselves on their acutencss in
never being humbugged, especially in
This fear of being humbugged can
lie carried too far, so far, in fact, that
many eople suffer for years with
weak digestion rather than risk a little
time and money in faithfully testing
the claims made of a preparation so
reliable and universally used as Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets.
Xow'stuart'.s DyspepsiaTablets arc
vastly different in one important re
spect from ordinary proprietary medi
cines for the reason that they are not
a secret patent medicine, uo secret is
made of their ingredients, but analy
sis shows tbem to contain the natural
digestive ferments, pure aseptic ep
sin. the digestive acids. Golden Seal,
bismuth, hydrastis and mix. They
are not cathartic, neither do they act
powerfully on any organ, but thay
cure indigestion on the common sense
plan of digesting the food eaten
thoroughly before it has time to fer
ment, sonr and cause the mischief.
This is the only secret of their suc
cess. Cathartic pills never have and never
can cure indigestion and stomach
troubles lecause they act entirely on
the bowds, whereas ! he whole trouble
is really in the stomach.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets taken
after meals digest the food. That is
all there is to it. Food not digested
or half digested is poison, as it creates
gas. acidity, headaches, palpitation oi
tbe heart, loss of flesh and appetite
and many other troubles which are
often called by some other name.

"Political Troth," by Thomas Ed
win Smith, is now on tbe market
The book touches upon nearly every
known feature and topic of politics,
except party issues. It is plainly a
free lance." and delves into political
subjects with a liberty and bitterness
which sfems audacious ana amazing.
It spares no one, and involves those
who, perhaps, do not rightfully
come under its scorcbings. it is
also, a sort of political text book, and
taken, as a whole, is a novelty in the
book line which cannot be fully diag
nosed, owing to the peculiarity of its
style and construction.
However, it is well worth reading,
and regardless of its character,
possesses - much of an educational
and profitable nature. It is remarka
ble, to say the least, for its 6cope of
observation and research, ine most
secret plan or thought of those eu-
gageu in poiiucs, ue lutry uuutai ui
otherwise, seems to be depicted and
exposed, and it contains many com
parisons and emphatic characteriza
tions which are the acme of wit and
originality. It should be said of it
regardless of all else, that "Political
Truth" is thoroughly analytical of its
subject, is impartial, aud deals wita
all parties ou the plane of equality aud

per cent of the principal are payable semi-annually. You receive 10 per cent
of the principal every six months, but continue to draw 6 per cent interest

investor to get an increased rate of interest on the investment. The bonds
are as absolutely secure as it is possible to make a security. Highest
