about 300 people present, and at the
moment when everybody was quiet a

mounted the stag;), and turning "vs face
the audience he askod in solemn tonow:
"Is Dave Potts in thia 'ere crow-IT

Citizen Um er very pleasant

As the world grows older the
world grows wiser. It begins
to see that the lungs are the
real seat of life. Unless they
perfectly oxygenate the blood,
all the blood purifiers in the
world will do the system no
good. It has long been known
that cattle herded too close to
gether made bad beef and it
was thought that it was owing
to the lack of exerciss. This
is now shown to bs untrue.
The trouble arises from impure
air. The same animal fed in a
stall by itself in a barn, on pre
cisely the same food, makes
good beef. Unless the lungs
are in good working order and
perform their functions proper
ly, there is little use iu trying
to doctor the etomach. This is
the special function of Reid's
German Cough and Kidney
Cure. Tt stimulates the Inner a.
gives tone to the stomach, and
then too, there are no evil
effects. J The system s not
loaded down with the results of
an opiate, and the cure is of
such a innocuous nature that it
can be given to children with
the utmost freedom and without
the slightest danger from 'an
overdose. It thuB fills all the
conditions of a gaeat family'
medicine, alike efficacious in
old age and in infancy.
It will cure the most annoy
ing cold and all the results of a I
cold, such as bronchitis,
catarrh, pleurisy, lumbago,
cough, consumption, pain in
the back, kidney trouble and
everything of that nature. One
remarkable thing about Reid's
German Cough and : Kidney
Cure is that any one who has
once tried it is always there
after its firm friend and not
only believes in it himself, but
recommends it to his friends
