Thinks it Saved His Life.
Lester M. Nelson, of Naples, Maine,
says In a recent letter: "I have used Dr.
King's New Discovery many years for
coughs and colds and I think it saved
my life. I have found it a reliable rem
edy for throat, and lung complaints and
would m more be without a bottle than
I would be without food." For nearly
forty years New Discovery has stood at
the bead of throat and lung remedies.
As a preventive of pneumonia and
healer of weak lungs it. has no equal.

It Furnished the Saltpeter For th?
War of 1812.
There Is nn Interesting bit of history
connected with (ho cave, Few Ameri
cans are aware thnt it hclpud to save
the country in the war of 1812 by fur
nishing saltpeter for the manufacture
of gunpowder, hut such is the case.
The powder used by Old Hickory in
whipping the llrftlsh so handsomely at
New Orleans in 1815 is said to havo
been made with saltpeter from Mam
moth cave. As early ns 1800 a Mr.
Fowlor obtained, it Is said. 100,000
pounds of oiler from the twenty eight
limestone caverns that had then been
discovered In Kentucky.
In 1800 l>r. Samuel Hrown of Lex
ington redo a thousand miles on horse
back to Philadelphia lo lay before the
American Philosophical Bocloty.'ln ses
sion there, the facts nbout the pres
ence of niter in these caverns, saying
that the deposits would be especially
valuable in case of war with any for
eign power, Hrown did not mention
Mammoth cave by nnmo at that time,
and the probability Is, as local tradi
tion asserts, that It was Jlrst discov
ered by whites la 1800 when a hunter
named Qouchtns or Hntchlns entered
It In pursuit of a wounded bear. Hay
ard Taylor says It was llrst discovered
In 1802, bot does not glvo his author
ity. Tho only value set on It nt llrst
was for the nitrous earth It contained.
For this a Mr. McLean paid $-10 for
the cave and 200 acres of land around
Its mouth. McLean sold It to a Mr.
(Jatewood; ho lo Messrs. Ora/.t and
Wllklns, who dorlved n fortune from
tho saltpeter made there during tho
war of 1812. Tho onibargo cut us off
from any other supply, and the output
of saltpeter from this envo enabled our
manufacturers to mako nufHclcnt pow
