The state of Kentucky has done a
most magnificent thing in t'ae erec
tion of a stately monument on the
field of Chi'ckamauga, dedicated
jointly to the Kentucky soldiers who
fell both in the union and confederate
armies. This is the first monument
that has leen erected to joiutly com
memorate the heroic deed of the
blue and the gray who fell together
on the battle fields of the south. This
monument is erected, as it. states on
the base, "to the honor of the sons of
Kentucky who fought and fell on this
field." there being no distinction
made as to which army they belonged
to or on which side they fell, and this
beautiful sentiment is displayed on
the base of the monument: "As we
are united in life and they united in
death, let one monument perpetuate
their deeds, and one people forgetful
of all asperities forever hold in grate
ful remembrance all the clories ef
that terrible conllict which made all
men free and retained every star on
the nation's Hag."
A Kansas soldier, writing home, re

sai'd: Well. lKy. how are you com

hiiu. and "one of them said: 'All
rifht, pard. how's yourself ?' Anoth
er of the loys, who knew Gen. Otis,
told him to shut up. that the man
was Gen. Otis. The general over
heard him and said: 'That's all
ri"ht. pard is as good as general tonight.'"

Very respectfully yours.
LON V. STEPHENS.
Whv is Paine's celery compound to
day the most successful spring remedy
in the world
It is wonderfully successful simply
because it accomplished in every in
stance exactlv what is claimed for it.
And of what other remedy can that
Every form of nervous trouble,
whether localized in the muscles,
heart, brain, or in the nerves them
selves, is cured to stay cured by
Paine's celery compound. Every
kind ami degree of impoverishment of
the system is overcome by this great
est of all invigorators after other remedies-
have shown no beneficial
It is the spring remedy vouched for
bv phvsicians, teachers and well read,
well informed men and women in
every part of the country.
People are everywhere dying of ex
hausted nervous energy or dragging
out their lives in pain and discomfort,
because of sleeplessness, nervousness
and fagged out brains. The object
ive point of Paine's celery compound
in successfully curing such nervous
troubles is to "feed the nerves, build
up the wasted brain-parts, nourish
the tissues and increase the construc
tive capacity of the blood. Health
and renewed life to all the nervous
tissues thus takes the place of the
lethargy and the debility of disease,
when Paine's celery compound is era
ployed. No one will need to be told that
Paine's celery compound does its best
work now as spring comes on. These
early spring days encourage getting
well. Nervous diseases are less stub
born and debility yields more quickly
now than at any other time.
It will astonish every one who
knows Paine's celery compound only
bv hear-sav, to trv it now and to see
the change from a yellow, sallow.
complexion to a fresh, healthy color;
headaches will wholly cease; sleep will
refresh anil the mind grow clear.
Bv means of this great modern remedy
the liver that has been sluggish all
winter becomes active, and bilious
attacks and the poisonous headaches
and the diseases akin to rheumatism
which are its result, are cut short.
If it were possible to make a housed
tc-house canvass of families where
Paine's celery compound is leing used
during these early spring days, an
overwhelming amount of evidence
would appear showing the implicit
conlidence that is placed in this great
est of all spring remedies; and the
enormous number of people who are
being'cured of some form of nervous
troubles, sleeplessness, indigestion,
headaches, neuralgia, heart trouble
or a general "rundown" condition.
