A Theory of His Rise and
The word wfcict efts no tnoti slang,
but an honorable term admitted by the
lexicographer to the round table of
Engliri; speech. This acceptance of the
word proves that there was a real need
for it ; that a certain class of people had
no word in the English language to
fitly designate them. As a class these
kickers must be as modern as the word
which describes them. They are in ef
fect a new product of our latest civiliza
tion. The word which describes the
kicker is picturesque. It suggests the
male whose kicking is usually done out
of pure wantonness ; which kicks in sea
son and out of season, at everything or
at nothing as the case may be. The
term kicker scarcely needs definition.
We know exactly what it means, as
well as we know the chronic fault-finder
THE RISE OF THE KICKER,
Any one who cares to trace the rise of
the kicker will find that he keens pace
with the prevalent American disease,
dyspepsia. All kickers may not be
dyspeptics, but all dyspeptics are surely
kickers. They are everlasting fault
finders. Nothing goes right for them
in the family or in business. There is
always a dead fly in their ointment. 'It
is a miserable condition for the dyspep
tic and his friends. He really can't help
himself. His nerves are strained to the
limit of endurance. His ears are like
megaphones magnifying every little
sound to the shock of thunder. His
eyes lose sense of perspective and he
sees mole-hills as mountains. He is
suspicious, jealous, unreasonable and
obstinate ; and all these things are only
svmptoms of the disease which is starv
ing and weakening the entire nervous
system and reaching out toward heart,
liver, lungs, kidneys and other organs.
WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR HIM ?

Id. lie can once more eat with ap

This is not a mere empty claim un
supported by facts. The statement that

women, who have been entirely cured

of dyspepsia and other diseases of the
stomach and organs of digestion and
nutrition by the use of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. It always
helps. It almost always cures.
O. S. Copenhaver, Esq., of Mount
Union, Huntingdon Co., Fa. (Box 222),
writes : "About twelve years ago I was
suddenly taken with a pain in the pit
of the stomach which was so violent I
could not walk straight. It would grew
more severe until it caused waterbrash
and vomiting of a slimy, yellow water.
I consulted a physician and he told me
I had a form of dyspepsia and treated
me for about six months with but little
benefit. I still kept getting so weak I
could scarcely walk. I then tried an
other physician and he told me my liver
was out of order and that I had indiges
tion. He gave me a treatment and I
got some better, but only for a short
time. I then tried another one who
said I had chronic indigestion, ulcera
tion of the lining of the stomach, torpid
liver and kidney affection. He treated
me for more than a year and I felt
much better but it did not last. I then
took to using several widely advertised
patent medicines, but received no more
than temporary relief while using. I
then tried Dr. Pierce's medicines, using
his Golden Medical Discovery,' Fa
vorite Prescription' and the 'Pleasant
Pellets-- and in two months time I was
feeling better than I had for years be
fore. I can truthfully say Dr. Pierce's
medicines did me more good than any I
had ever taken."
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov

other organs of digestion and nutrition.
It restores bodily strength by enabling
the assimilation of fool which is the
source of all physical strength. It acts

the notice of Officer Rninm of the
patrol station across the street. The
ambulance was hurried out and Mr.
Meyers was taken to St. Luke's hos

dressed. The crushed and mangled
hand was bound up in a handkerchief
by the officers while they were driv
ing the patient to the hospital. The
right arm wits amputated just below
lie elbow. The victim of this acci

CAUSE OF DEAFNESS.
The Most (ommoo C'ane Only Kecently
It has lecn stated on good medical
authority that nine-tenths of cases
of deafness are caused from catarrh
or from sore throat trouble.
The' little tube which leads to the
ear from the throat is lined with a
sort of velvety structure called mu
cous membrane. This membrane is
simply a continuation of the mucous
membrane lining the throat. When
disease of any sort nttacks the mu
cous membrane of the throat it is
very liable to extend into the Eus
tachian tube and up into the ear.
The history of nearly all cases of
deafness is like this: a cold is con
tracted and neglected, other colds
are taken, the throat becomes sore
and inflamed, which is aggravated by
particles of dust and germs from the
air. This condition causes the dis
ease to spread into the tube thut
leads to the car.
It seems a little farfetched to say
that most cases of deafness nre caus
ed from catarrh, but it is certairilj
true, and anyone who has had a se
vere catarrhal cold must have notic
ed how the hearing was affected
while the cold lasted.
With catarrh sufferers this impair
ment of hearing becomes chronic and
grows worse the longer the catarrh
You can cure catarrh and deafness
by the regular use of an excellent
new preparation called Stuart's Ca
tarrh Tablets, composed of antisep
tic remedies which act both on the
mucous membranes but principally
and most effectually on the blood,
eliminating the catarrhal poison from
People whose hearing is defective
may think it a little remarkable that
a simple and harmless tablet would
very often remove all traces of deaf
ness, but when it Is remembered
that catarrh is easily cured by the
regular use of Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets there is no mystery about It.
If you are subject to nasal catarrh
or catarrh of throat, bronchial tubes
or catarrh of stomach and liver, the'
safest and most effective treatment
is the new catarrh specific, Stuart's
Catarrh Tablets, sold by all druggists
at 50 cents for full sized package.

300 people were served during the
evening. The proceeds of the sup

Fortune now smiles on Thomas
Kamberg, a polisher at Deere & Co.'s.
He has received word from the Unit
ed States consul nt Sweden that $500.
0O0 has fallen to him as his share of
an uncle's estate which has just been
settled. Kamberg's uncle, it is un
derstood, lived in Australia, where he
owned one mine and held stock in
another. Some six or seven months
ago Mr. Kamberg received word of
the recent death of his uncle and no
tice that he would receive a part of
the estate as one of the heirs. Rut
his fondest dreams never considered
anything so princely as a fortune of
half a million. The handling of the
estate was carried on in Sweden,
where most of the heirs reside, and
it is now ready for distribution. It
amounts to more than $2,000,000 and
there are only four or five heirs in
all. nieces and nephews of the dead
man. Mr. Kamberg will receive his
share as soon as the transfer can be
madj through the United States con
sul. For twentj- years Mr. Kamberg
has worked at the strenuous toil of
grinding at Deere & Co.'s and it was
not long nfter his good news came
to him that he gave up his position
and will henceforth enjoy the com
fort and ease which his fortune per
mits. He is a bachelor past 50 years
of age and lives at 353 Ninth street,
and the only mar to his good fortune
is that ill health will not permit him
to get all the pleasure that he might
out of the money coming to him.
