ROBBERS APPLIED TORTURE.
Vain Efforts to Extort Money From
an Aged Gentleman.
Hinton, W. V?., Nov. 20.?One of the
most horrible* attempts at robbery evet
perpetrated ia this county was that of
three men last night, when they attempt?
ed to obtain money from Eli Balliuger,
who livts in the suburbs of this city.
Between .r> and (i o'clock yesterday even?
ing they came to his door and knocked
aud asked him for a drink of water. He
started toward tho kitchen, which is
some distance from the main bouse, to
get the water, and Mist as he entere'1 the
door tho three men jumped upon him
ami knocked him down. Then they
bound bis hands anil feet and gagged him
by sttiding a handkerchief in his mouth.
After they had securely bound the old
gentlemen, they proceeded to search the
house for money, hut only succeeded In
finding (id cents. Becoming enraged,and
believing that a Inrgeanionnt was hidden
somewhere on the premises, they toid the
old man they would burn him alive un?
less he revealed tho aiding place of his
tieasure. Ho tcld them that (10 cents was
positively all the money in the house,but
they did not believe him. They removed
his shoes and applied lire to his feet in
their efforts to force him to tell. After
calmly watching him writhe iu agony for
a few minutes, still protesting that he
had no more mouey, they placed the gag
back in his mouth, and unlocking the
tloor left him. He succeeded after seve?
ral hours in loosening his bands, and lit
then gave the alarm.
Mr. Ballitiger is over SO years of age,
and has lived alone for the past twenty
years. He is k critical condition, aud it
is feared he cannot survive tho shock.
He cannot give any description of the
robber:, except that they were white
men apd all young. The county court to?
day offered a reward of $1.*>() for the [[cap?
ture and conviction of the iobbers.

When a young couple runs away to get
married half tue world says: "How
Romantic!" the other Half says: " How
silly!" But yon can't tell cither way
until the " honey-moon " is over. When
this young couple get settled down to the
regular hum-drum of life, they'll manage
ali right and find solid happiness in any
case, if they have good hearts and sound
health. All depends on that.
It's wonderful bow much health has to
do with married happiness. Sickness af?
fects the temper. You can't be happy
nor make others happy if you're ailing.
When you lind yourself irritable, easily

because your blood is getting poor. You
need richer blood and more of it. Your

an abundance of the healthy, red corpus?
cles, and gives you a fresh supply of

it is for everyone whose blood is impure
or in a poor, " run-down " condition. It
prevents the germs of disease from get?
ting a hold on your system. Even after
disease is settled on you, it is driven out
by the blood-creating properties of the
"Discovery." It is a perfect cure for
general and nervous debility, catarrh,
malaria, eczema, erysipelas, scrofula and
every form of blood - disease. It is'nt
called a consumption-cure but even con?
