each received from the National Cash
Register company, of Dayton, Ohio, one
of its latest i npreved cash registers, as
hereto 'ore referred to In The Aegcs
They were ordered through the company's
agency here, and are, besides being ene
of the greatest achievements of modern
mechanism, a jandscnaa ornament to any

is finished in nickel plate which is inlaid
with the natut s of the firm and is me
chanically perfect. It registers every

amount, regi ters the number cf
times the drawer is opened,
reccrds money received on account,
records money paid out. any one of
which can be dune by simply pressing a
key on the register. While in conversa

member of ene c f the above firms touched
his finger to one of the keys and the fol
lowing seven results were accomplished
in the twinklinc of an eye: The cash
drawer was unlocked. The cash drawer
was thrown open. A bell was rang loud
enough to be hi ard in any part of the
room. The ind ca'or showing the pres

indicator showing the amount the sale
was raised. Tte amount of the sale
was added to the previous amounts and
the register was unlocked automatically
making it necewary to close the cash
drawer before another sale could be
registered. It is as simple as it is accu

these machines ate being manufactured

King of Medicines
Scrofulous Hu,morA Cure
" When I was 14 years of ago I had a severe
attack ot rheumatism, and after I recovered
had to go on crutches. A year later, scrofula,
in the form ot white swellings, appeared on
various parts of my body, and for 11 years I
was an invalid, being confined to my bed "
years. In that time ten or eleven sores ap
peared and broke, causing me great pain and
suffering. I feared I never should get well.
- Early in is$3 1 went to Chicago to visit a
sister, but was confined to my bed most of tho
time I was there. In July I read a book, A
Day with a Circus,' in which were statements
of cures by Hood's Sarsaparilla. I was so im
pressed with the success of this medicine that
I decided to try it. To my great gratincation
the sores soon decreased, and I began to feel
better and in a short time I was up and
out of doors. I continued to take Hood's Sar
saparilla for about a year, when, having used
six bottles, I had become so fully released
from the disease that 1 went to work for tho
Flint & Walling Mfg. Co., and since then
HAVE SOT LOST A SINGLE DAT
c account ot sickness. I believe the disease
Is expelled from my system, I always feel well,
am in good spirits and have a good appetite.
I am now 27 years of age and can walk as well
cs any one, except that one limb Is a little
shorter than the other, owing to the loss ot
bone, and the sores formerly on my right leg.
To my friends my recovery seems almost
miraculous, and I think Hood's Sarsaparilla
is the king of medicines.' William A.
