by Side at Banquet.
Chicago, December 7.?Vice Presl
dent-elect Thomas R. Marshall and
former Vice President Fairbanks sat
together at a banquet of Indlanians,
who live In Chicago. Mr. Fairbanks,
In a speech, referred jocularly to the
recent Democratic victory and later
paid a high tribute to Vice President
"You would not recognize the old
State now were you to return to the
haunts once so familiar to you," he
said. "Where there once was light and
faith you will find the wreck and ruin
of a noble party; gloom fills the air;
our fair fields are overcast with doubt
and despair; the sons of unrighteous
ness, through one of those inscrutable
dispensations of an overruling Prov
idence, have captured the citadel of
your fathers and now hold high carni
val in the seats of the mighty."
Later In hs speech Mr. Farbanks
"It Is a matter for congratulation
if we leave partisan politics aside; a
difficult matter I grant you?for poli

It Is a matter for congratulation, I
say, that the next Vice President of

of high distinction. Scholar, lawyer,
statesman, we honor him as such, but

Have you ever thought how anxious
the boys and girls and older folks,
those of your family and those of your
friends, yes, have you ever thought
how anxious they are to hear from
home? Have you ever heard any of
them tell, those who get the home pa
pers, have you ever heard any of them
tell how they read the "dear old"
county paper, how they devour every
word of It, how they leave not a word
unread? Haven't you? If you have,
you know how they appreciate hearing
what their old friends and relatives
are doing "back home". If you have
not heard them, it is either because
many years have passed since you saw
them or when you saw them they had
not enjoyed reading what you have
the opportunity to read every week
and what many another far distant
son always sees. They love to see the
home paper and none appreciate it
more than they.
Have you a distant son or brother,
or friend, who is not taking The Ad
vertiser and who would enjoy reading
it? Why not let us send it to him
for one year witli a notice that it is
being sent by you as a Christmas

There is more Catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than all other
diseases put together, and until the
last few years was supposed to be in
curable. For a great many yean, doc
tors pronounced it a local disease and
prescribed local remedies, and by con
stantly falling to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science, has proven Catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore
requires constitutional .treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by
F. J Cheney & Co., 'POIedo. Ohio, is
the only Constitutional cure on the
