Tlio Fox Feigu.'il Death.
There i one man in this great state whoso
inferiority in his peculiar line of effort is
never disputed and that's Dan Gammon, of
Canton, t le celebrated teller of fox stories.
There livts not in all Maine a person having
sufficient turdlhnod to match himself against
Dau Gam non in this art.
'Boys," says Dau, '-I wuz out buntin' a fox
on old Canton Maountiu one day. I heard
my haoun i er bayin' down on the west side
u v the uiaouutin, and I knew he wuz chasiu'
the fox and that ef 1 stood still abaout where
I wuz tht fox would circle raound thar bune
"So Isrt daowu behind a stone wall and
waited. The haound kep' circlin' nearer aud
nearer and afore lung I see the fox runuin'
up the niaouutin right straight fur me. I
waited til he got up to within fifty yards and
then aime i my guu over the wall.
"Well, boys, afore I could fire I see that
fox tumb o right over, heels in the air. Ho
laid thar ez stiff as a corpse. For, boys, he
wuz a cor se. I went up to him and he wuz
stone deai.. How'dhedioi Why, he see mo
ami knew it wuz Dun Gammon pintiu' his
old gun at him and he wuz skairt to death.
Yes, boys actually skairt ter death 1
"Well, 1 peeled his hi.lo off and left the
carcass th r. I hadn't cone more'u 2UUyards
away when I happened ter look back and see
that fox runnin' as tiht as he could jump,
without 1 is clothes on! The darned critter
hail played it on me after all. But, hang the
luck! that afternoon a hunter from Hebron
came alon and shot him. Ef ho hadn't done
that the fox's fur would ha' growed out agin
by the neftfall and I should ha' got $1.25
more off 'urn him, sure." Lewiston Journal.

II oek Coal Miners Vote No.
Bhazil, Ind., July 2. The striking
Indiana block coal minors comprised in ten
districts centering in Brazil rejected by a
popular vote yesterday a proposition to
accept th operators' offer, and the strike
against fe 15 cent reduction will continue.
The prop isition voted down was one secured
last week by the state board of charities,
and was to the effect that the operators
would prove by their books that tbey had

An important Element
Of thesiccess of Hood's Sarsaparilla Is
the fact that every purchaser receives a
fair equivalent for his money. The f a-
mllliar headline, "100 Doses One Dol
lar," sto en by imitators, is original with
and trua only of Hood's Sarsaparilla.
This can easily be proven by any one
who desires to test the matter. For
real economy, buy only Hood's Sarsapa
rilla. fiold by all druggists.
The virgin forest has never been axed
From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country
Hear what be says:
I have been a practical druccist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time have had occasion to examine, try,
and notice the efiect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as I
have Buffered untold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
find nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or Ipss frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced by a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B. or Bo
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B.
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
to man. I have been subject to ins
flammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago. at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I hud only
eaten six menls, and could scarlely sit up
without support; but after using three
bottles I was able to relish my mpals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest. piD
felt sinne that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
reulHr weight whs ajjuin attained, 21(1
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this on
paralleled and remarkable discovery, B.
B. B.,curedmein mid winter, at the
very time my snfferimis and misery were
the greatest. I take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully,
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferer
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, but the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who bundle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.

now on my third bottle, and able to over
