Tooth-brush In the World. Full In
structions are sent with each
brush. Evory night before retiring

Yes, "Prophylactic" is a peculiar
word, and hard to remember, but It
Is a Splendid Name for a Tooth*
brush, because you use a tooth
brush to prevent your teeth from
decaying, and Prophylactic means
a "preventive of disease." With
every brush comes a neat little
hook secured to the brush, and
there is a hole in the end of the
handle which enables you to hang
It up. The head will not touch the
wall. Ask your dentist about the
"Prophylactic Tooth-brush," and
see If he will not recommend it.

Wo hope our people will con
tinue to think and reason with
themselves and among themselves
from now until election day, and
that they will then cast (heir bal
lots for the most competent men
for all positions of honor or trust.
By best we don't mean the whin
ing hypocritical blatherskites, and
those that want to run every
meeting that they are In from
a Sunday School meeting to a cross
road political meeting, but we mean
good,trustworthy men, men,whose
word is their bond, and are not one
thing to-day and another to-mor
row. It is our hope that our coun
try may be delivered from the
ranting, hypocritical, sanctimon
ious, blather8kiting, irresponsible
and unreasonable demagogue, and
that wo may elect men to office of
sound horse sense, of reasonable
and broad judgment. Men of
honor and good character. When
this is done we can all feel as if we
have done our duty.?Union Times.

DON'T STOP TOBACCOi
How To Cure Yourself Willie Uing It.
Tho tobneco habit grows on a man un
til bis nervous system is Beriously affect
ed, impairing health, comfort ahd hap
piness. To quit suddenly is too sorvcroa
shock to the system, as tobacco to an ln?
venterate user becomes a stimulant that
his syBtem continually craves. "Baco?
Curo" is a scientific euro for the tobacco
habit, in all its forma carefully com
pounded after the formula of an eminent
Berlin physician who lias used it in bis
private practice since 1S72, without a
failure. It is purely vegetable and guar
anteed perfectly harmless. Y nu can use
all the tobacco yon want while taking
"Baco Curo." It will notify yon when to
stop. We give a written guarantee to
eure permanently any case with three
boxes, or refund the money with 10 per
cent, interest. "Baco-Ouro" is not a sub
stitute, but a scientific cures without the
aid of will power and with no inconven
ience. It leaves the system as pure and
free from nicotine astl.e day you took
your lirst chew or smoke.

so, Wia. ?Gentlemen; For forty years 1
used tobacco in all its forms. For tw<?n*y
tivo years of that time I was a great suf
ferer from general debility and heart
disease. For fifteen years f tried to quit,
but couldn't. T took various rcmidics, d
among others "No-Todlac," "The Indian 1
Tobacco Antidote." "DoubleChloride of I
Hold," etc., etc . but none of thorn did 1
me the least bit of good. Finally, bow 1

tho habit in all Its forms, and I have in
creased thirty.pounds in weight and am
