of a oth:'r grtuesone,

acted. Yearly, as tin' white m1en tray

gions, they 1 lay their lives against the
tales of yellow luere that lie under it,
and soine lose. The next year, says
the Sant Francisco Chronicle, their
mininified corpses are"c fouand by othi
ers, who nitaty pity them as "good
men;" they played tle limit and lost.
Iere's the next that tries.
F'lfty-one years .ig a party of men,

left Independence, Mo., In two 'wilgols
drawn by oxen, loudtl for the gold
f1ells of California. From that day un
til now they have ne'ver been heard of,
and tleir fate has always been a iuys
tery. All these yeairs the bare desert
held the secret securely locked, 1111d
only recently have its restless, crawl
ing satnd(s disclosed the key----at huge,
rlsted iron htook of an ancient ox

Years ago somle prospector had

it to a stake by the edge of the spring.
It was while resting in the sh:de of
the roeks and the brush that Pickett
saw, at few feet from him, the top of
a rust-eaten hook projecting above the
sand. He took hold of it, but it did not
coie away easily, and, exerting his
strength, lie Ulicovered an ancielt ox
chain forty feet in length, the kind
that is practically out of use now.

One or two of thle women and1( several

I Coughd
" I had a most stubborn cough
for many years. It deprived rne
of sleep and I grew very thin. I
then tried Ayer " Cherry Pectoral,
and was quickly cured."
R. N. Mann, Fall Mills, Tenn.
Sixty years of cures
and such testimony as the
above have taught us what
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
will do.
We know it's the great
est cough remedy ever
made. And you will say
so, too, after you try it.
