The Real Estate Man That Divides the Earth to Suit Your Purse
In Bad Fix
"I had a mishap at the age of 41, which left me in bad
fix," writes Mrs. Georgia Usher, of Conyers, Ga.
"1 was unconscious for three days, and after that I
would have fainting spells, dizziness, nervousness, sick
headache, heart palpitation and many strange feelings.
"I suffered greatly with ailments due to the change of
life and had 3 doctors, but they did no good, so I concluded
to try Cardui.
Since taking Cardui, 1 am so much better and can do
all my housework."
The Woman's Tonic

and keep you in tip top condition.
In this way your troubles, whatever they arc, will grad

LIFE HISTORY OF HERMON LEE ENSIGN
WHO PRESENTED FOUNTAIN TO LAURENS
Now that the >))ublic drinking foun
, tain, whicli lias been erected on the
public square, is In daily us?> it is an
opportune time to call attention to the
founder of the National Humane Alli
ance, which organization gave the
fountain to the city. This man was
the late II er mon Lee Ensign.
II" was born in Curhnndnle, Pa.,on!
I June 30, 1849. At an early age he
moved with Iiis parents to Sheffield,
i III. When fifteen years old he ac
quired a knowledge of telegraphing,
i and souu became an expert operator,
i Soon after that he went to Davenport,
Iowa, and later to Denver.
He was reared under religious In*
lluences, was a member of the Con
gregational Church, and when twenty
years old decided to become a minis
ter. With that object, he entered Phil
lips academy. His health or finances
soon failed, and be left school and
went to Chicago, where he began bus
iness with a bridge company.
?During the great fire of 1871 be ren
dered important service to this com
pany by saving from the office valua
A few years later he became the
manager of a brilliantly written paper
called the Alliance, a weekly journal,
mildly re llglous and widey humani
tarian. His experience in journntsm
he turned to practical account by lat
er engaging in the advertising busi
ness, following it with marked suc
cess, and acquiring a fortune in twen
Fertile In fancy and quick in ex
periment, he devised a new form of
newspaper advertising known as head
line reading advertising. He also in
vented the stereotype plate with re
In 1882 he moved to Rochester and
two years later to New York, where
he lived until his death in 1899.
Without advantages of birth or for
tune, living the lite of a quiet Ameri
can citizen and dvine before he was
fifty, he had rounded out a notable life
To his business and general friends
he was known as a genial and com
panionable man, successful in bis af
fairs, light-hearted and satisfied with
life. His more Intimate friends know
that lie had other Interests und feel
ings, which represented the deoper
and more vital side of his nature. Ho
had an enger nun Imaginative t?-iiii??*i
ainent, an Instinctive love of what is
good and tnii- and ;i haired of what is
wrong. From childhood he was a luv
er of domestic animals. This love
made him detesl all that was cruel or
unkind in tlx treatment of animals by
their natural protector- num. It be
came more than a sentiment?It be
came a passion., growing upon him
ami at last dominating his life.
To him animals were not merely in
feriors or slaves, they were compan
ions and friends, devoting themselves
to man and dependent upon him for
their lives and happiness The ethic?
of the relations with lower animals
have seldom had more practical and
forcible expression than from this hu
mane man. 11c was an ardent disci
ple of Henry Heigh, and felt that If
he could have behind him such a rec
ord as did Mr. llergh, he would re
gard it as the best monument that he
He accordingly founded the Nation
al Humane Alliance to carry out his
ideas for the welfare of animals. He
intended to give his time and fortune
to the work. Hut just as it was start
ed he died. He left his fortune for
this work, and thi> society is adminis
tering the trust of Mr. Knsigu on the
lines of his ideas, for humane work,
educating children in kindness to ani
mals and other similar work.
The Humane Alliance has offices at
No. 520 United Charities Building,
New York city. The officers are: Har
rison Oroy Hiske. president; Freder
ick H. Tilghmau. vice-president; Lewis
M. Seaver, secretary and treasurer.
Mr. Seaver made a visit to Luurcns
some months ago and. in company
with Mr. W. G. Lancaster who had
called Iiis attention to the need of the
fountain here, be wont over the city
and studied the situation, coming to
the conclusion that Laureus was in
need of the fountain. It was then in
accordance with his orders that the
beautiful and useful ornament was
sent here and erected.

CALORIC" Fireless Cookstove
Von will be amazed at the seemingly impossible things
it does. It bakes and toasts food in its raw state without
first partially cooking it in an ordinary stove or reheating
it before serving, as well as strains, stewfl and boils.
The "Caloric" saves fully seventy-five per cent, in fuel
alone and nearly all the time, and work, and all the bother.
It requires no attention after the food is placed In it; there
is no danger of burning or of food being over done, The
"Calorie" will pay for itself many times over. After using
it you would not part with it for many
times it cost.
Prices range upward from
