Hustle has been the watchword wii'i

YOUNG MAN SHEDS TEARS
AT POLICE COURT HEARING
Henry Beckstrom Sent Down or
Days to Regain His
Harry Heckstrom. a young man
whose home is in South Park, was
tearfully penitent when he appeared
before Police Magistrate G. A. Johnson
this morning to plead to a charge of
disorderly conduct. Harry has been
drinking to excess for a month, -and
last night, after midnight, he took pos
session of the Doerring saloon, going
behind the bar and helping himself
to the contents of a whisky bottle.
A telephone call was sent to police
headquarters, and Officer James Bowes
brought Beckstrom to the station,
where he was locked up. His brother
came to see him and attend the hear
ing. Harry begged piteously through
the night to be given his freedom.
His relatives were of the impression
that he was losing his reason, as a re
stilt of his dissipation. Dr. J. F. My
ers, who was called to attend him at
the station, was of the opinion that
he would come out all right if he
let liquor alone for a couple of weeks.
Harry promised that he would never
drink again if he would be released,
but Magistrate Johnson thought the
best place for him for the next 10
days would be in the county jail,- and
H:.rry was sent thither.

RECTOR OF ST. LUKE'S,

Good Qualities of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy.
Ashburnham. Out.. April IS. 1901?.
I think it is only right that I should
tell you what a wonderful ciTect Cham
berlain's Cough Kemedy has produced.
The day before Easter J was so dis
tressed with a cold and cough that I
did not think to be able to take any
duties the next day, as my voice was
almost choked by the cough. The same
day I received an order from you for a
bottle of your cough remedy. I at
once procured a sample bottle ami
took about -three doses of the medi
cine. To my great relief the cough
and cold had completely disappeared
and I was able to preach three times
on Easter day. 1 know that this rapid
and effective cure was due to your
cough remedy, l maKc tins testimon
ial without solicitation, being thankful
to hae found such a God-sent remedy.
