Sickness Driven F
by Paine's Gel
Women, mothers of families, have no
more right to live beyond their strength
than beyond their income.
The greatest injustice that women do
themselves and their children is in put?
ting olT izetting well. Headaches, ner?
vousness, dyspepsia anil melancholia lay
their leaden fingers ov^r the whole house?
Paine's celery compound lias driven
sickness and gloom from innumerable
homes, where some loved member was
the source of continual anxiety and even
despair. Theconstautly repeated successes
cf this great invigcrater iu making peo?
ple well have roused many persons who
thought themselves destined unredeem?
able to lives of imperfect health to try
Paine's celery compound.
\ No one can read the follow'nir letter
' without being inspired with confidence in
this great remedy:
659 Eini street, Buffalo, N. Y., July 28.
Aoout eight, years ago, after the birth
of a child, I suffered terribly. I could
not get help from over a dozen physicians
to whom I applied, and after receiving
treatment from the last doctor continu?
ally for nine months, was pronounced
cured and continued so until the birth of
another chiltl, when I was obliged to
commence doctoring again, although all
imaginable treatments had been resorted
to without one particle of reli?f.
I was subject to neuralgic troubles and
sl'gbtly rheumatic, and I became dis
couniKed ami melancholy, feeling that I
should never again be a well woman.
TIME DRAWING NEAR.
San Francisco, Dec. 10.?The papers in
the Durrant case have been filed here. It
is expected that the murderer will be
sentenced, for the third time, next Tues?
day, and that he.will be hnnged on tin
first Friday in the new year.
I whs in ii pitiful state, wlieu my hus?
band, who hau been benefited by the use
of Paine's celery compound, urged me to
try it. In a remarkably short time after
I began taking the remedy I began to no?
tice a change for tho better. Hefore I
had taken three bottles 1 was well I
consider my cure a miracle, for I had
tried a trreat many doctors anil different
drugs and spent hundreds of'dollars in
vain. Respectfully yours,
MKS. KATM HENNESSIN.
Close, careful observation of great
numbers of cases like the above led Pro
ressor Edward B. Phelps, M. 1).. LL. I).,
of the Dartmouth Medical School, to the
formulation of |Paine's celery compound.
The success of this universally well
known remedy . in quickly driving out
disease from the blood and system need
not be retold to newspaper readers.
Paine's celery compound restores t>> a
healthy state a weakened and diseased
nervous system. One of the nrst evi?
dences of its building up virtue is tho
gain in llesh noticeable about the face.
Night sweats and nervous'twitclungs are
a thing of the p/ist: there is a great im?
provement in looks, a better appetite,
sounder sleep, a "clearer skin and more
reunlar (unctions. These are a few of the
outward improvements. More important
is the thorough and radical purifying of
the blood and the regulatiug and build?
ing up of the deep-lying nerves all over
the body. There is'nothing half way or
partial in the effect of Paine's celery com?
pound. It cures permanently.

It rose from $1.01 1-2 at tho openiiiif to
$1.00, hut in a most irregular fashion.
It had many a sudden backward slide,
but In the end rested at $1 t)i, a net im?
provement of t> 8-J cent for the day. Jan?

higher each, and provisions ?aT 1-2 cents
New York, Dec. 10.?The sensational
advauce of December wheat in Chicago
yesterday was rellcected locallv by a net
improvement of 1 l-8al :l 8 cents a
bushel. Speculation, while active at
times, did not approach tho excitement
rcpcited in tho West, us traders hero
were pretty woll evened tip and too
shrewd in the present 'unsettled state of
the market to branch out into fresh
deals. Accordingly, only a scalping bus
iness was accomplished, save for a little
foreign buying eaily in the day. The De?
cember option sold from 08 to 08 'i 4, and
closed 08 7-8 and 05. The advance effect?
ively checked exporters, a ho were only

Col. Bowen for marshal and W. C.
Franklin, of Apponiattox, for district at?
torney of the Western district. The Pres?
