been introduced, which, together witri

exquisite production as heretofore will

can easily realize that it in its general
excellence alone that has made it pos

It will be gratifying to all lovers of
temperance and a happy home to know
that a simple and a scientific cure for
the whisky ami beer habit has been
discovered. Orrine never fails to cure
drunkenness if it is used in accordance
with the simple directions in the pack
age, and the discoverer has so much
onlidenee in the treatment that wo
ire authorized to sell it with an abso
lute guarantee to effect a cure or the
money will be refunded.
It is in two forms; No. 1 to be given
secretly, and No. 2, for those who wish
to be cured, $1 each. Mothers and sis

Because Vinol contains all the medicinal elements tlie

Because everything in Vinol, except the tonic iron and a
line old wine, is actually extracted from fresh cods' livers
and their oil.
Because Vinol is dcliciously palatable and agreeable under
all conditions. Everybody likes it.
Because Vinol tones tip the system, strengthens every organ,

a travel lecture and yet not a trav I
lecture, and is the best thing bv far
(hat he has ever produced. In fact
there is nothing on the platform today
that has a greater message for the
public, or any lecture that is more en
tertaining. In his recent tour he ha
been invited by six republican legisla
tors to address them, and has ben
able to. accept five of these enga;
ments. Everywhere both republicans
iand democrats do him honor. His le
