DON'T STOP TOBACCO.
How To Cure Yourself While Ulng It.
The tobacco habit grows on a man un
til his nervous system is seriounly affect
ed, impairing health, comfort and hap
piness. To quit suddenly is too servoroa
shock to the system, as tobacco to an in
venterate user becomes a stimulant that
his system continually craves. "I3aco
(! m o" is a scientific euro for the tobacco
habit, in all its forms carefully com
pounded after the formula of an eminent
Berlin physician who has used it in his
private practice sinco 1872, without a
failure. It is puroly vegetable and guar
anteed perfectly harmless. Ynu can use
all the tobacco you want while taking
"Baco-Curo." It will notify you when to
stop. We give a written guarantee to
cure permanently any case with three
boxes, or refund the money with 10 per
cont. interest. "Baco-Curo" is not a sub
stitute, but u scientific cures without tho
aid of will power and with no inconven
ience. It leaves tho system as pure and
free from nicotine astho day you took
your first chew or smoke.
CURED DY HACO-CURO AND GAINED
From hundreds of testimonials, tho
originals of which aro on file and open to
inspection, the following is presented :
Clayton, Nevada Co., Ark., Jan. 28, 1895,
Eureka Chemical & Mfg., Co., LaCros
se, Wis. ?Gentlemen: For forty years I
used tobacco in all its forms. For twenty
five years of that timo I was a great suf
ferer from general debility and heart
disease. For fifteen years I tried to quit,
but couldn't. I took various remidies,
among others "No-To-Bac," "Tho Indian
Tobacco Antidoto." "Double Chloride of
Gold," etc., e.c . but none of them did
me tho least bit of good. Finally, how
ever, I purchased a box of your "Baco
Curo" and it has entirely cured me of
the habit in all its forms, and I have in
creased thirty pounds in weight and am
relieved from all tho numerous aches
and pains of hodv and mind. I could
write a quiro of papor upon my changed
feolings and condition.
Yours rospectfully. P. H. MarhUry.

The great race was captured by
the Prince of Wales's Persimmon,
despite the assertion made yester
day that tho horse was disabled
and his chances of overcoming tho
mighty speod of Leopold do Roths

annulled. St. Frusquin, though
beAton for first place, gave a good
account of himself, and finished
second, H. E. Beddington's Earwig
The horses got a good start.?
Tamarind and Toussaint were the
first to get away, but after the first
hundred yards Bay Ronald drew
to the front, followed by Bradwar
dine and Tamarind. After these
came Earwig, Spook, Gulistan,
Taufei, Toussaint and tho Knight
of tho Thistle, with St. Frulsquin
and Persimmon as tho "whippers
in." Shortly afterwarns Gulistan
went to the front and hold the
lead, passing tho mile post, fol
lowed by Bay Ronald, Spook and
St. Frusquin. Then came Brad
wardine, Teufel and Knight of the
Thistle, in iront of Earwig and
Persimmon, with Tamarind tailing
off. Gulistan seomed to be in trou
ble upon arriving at the top of the.
hill and fell back. Bradwardlne
then went to the front, with St.
Frusquin next. Entering the
straight Bradwardlne yielded to
Bay Ronald and St. Frusquin. A
quarter of a mile from the finish
Bay Ronald and St. Fruisquin took
tho lead, followed by Persimmon.
Opposite Tatersall's Persimmon got
on oven terms with St, Frusquin

ish, resulting in Persimmon win
ning by a neok. 8t. Frusquin beat
Earwig by four lengths. Taufel
was fourth and Bay Ronald fifth.
Gulistan, Bradwardlne and Spook
followed home in tho order named
and Tamarind was last.

room with a broken stirrup leath
