A Common Gold
Is often the "beginning of serious affec
tions of the Throat, Bronchial Tubes,
and Lungs. Therefore, the importance
of early and effective treatment cannot
be overestimated. Aycr's Cherry Pec
toral may always be relied upon for the
speedy cure of a Cold or Cough.
Last January I v.13 attacked with a
severe Cold, which, by neglect and fre
quent exposures, became worse, finally
settling on my lungs. A terrible cough
soon followed, accompanied by pains in
the chest, from which I suffered intense
ly. After trying various remedies, with
out obtaining relief, I commenced taking
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and was
I am satisfied that this remedy saved my
life. Jno. Webster, Pawtucket, It. I.
I contracted a sevoro cold, which
suddenly developed into Pneumonia,
presenting dangerous and obstinate
symptoms. My physician ordered the
use of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. His in
struction were followed, and the result
was a rapid and permanent cure.
H. E. Stimpson, Rogers Prairie, Tex.
Two years ago I suffered from a severe
Cold, which settled on my Lungs. I con
sulted various physicians, and took the
medicines thoy prescribed, but received
only temporary relief. A friend induced
me to try Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. After
taking two bottles of this medicine I was
cured. Since then I have given the Pec
toral to my children, and consider it
The Best Remedy
for Colds, Coughs, and all Throat and
Lung diseases, ever used in my family.
Robert Vanderpool, Meadville, Pa.
Some timo ago I took a slight Cold,
which, being neglected, grew worse, and
settled on ray Lungs. I had a hacking
cough, and was very weak. Those who
knew mo best considered my life to be
in great danger. I continued to suffer
until I commenced using Aycr's Cherry
Pectoral. Less tlian one bottle of this
valuable medicine cured me, and I
feel that I owe the preservation of my
life to its curative powers. Mrs. Ann
Lockwood, Akron, New York.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is considered,
here, the one great remedy for all diseases
of the throat and lungs, and is more
in demand than any other medicine of its
class. J. F. Roberts, Magnolia, Ark. if

I AN OPEN OR LAND-LOOKED SEA.
Behring sea is just now attract
ing more attention than ever be
fore, partly because of the question
raised as to its character. No
point has been more clearly set
tledjtban that a land-locked sea or
water within the territory of a sin
gle nation is subject to the exclu
fcive jurisdiction of that nation.
Some of the great lakes are in that
condition. They are land-locked,
and where they are wholly within
the territory of one nation the sin
gle jurisdiction is complete. Thus,
Lake Michigan is subject only to
the jurisdiction of the United
States. But Lake Superior is sub
ject to a divided jurisdiction be
cause it touches the dominion of
Canada on one side. Long Island
sound is land-locked and wholly
within the jurisdiction of the
United States. But the Gulf of
Mexico is not land-locked, nor is it
wholly within the jurisdiction of
any one nation. If Behring sea is
land-locked' and the shore lines
were wholly within the territory
of a single nation, it would follow
that a single or exclusive jurisdic
tion could be maintained. The
commercial world is likely to know
more about this sea than formerly,
because an earnest and exhaustive
dihcussion has already been started.
The geographical question is not
the one of least interest. The
New York JSunt referring to the
proposition that from the chain of
the Aleutian islands up to the
Behring straits the waters are land
locked, makes this statement:
The sea area covered by this
most important and interesting
claim is about three times as great
as the entire -Gulf of Mexico.
Roughly speaking, it is equai to
the Mediterranean, the Adriatic,
the iEgean and the Black seas
combined. Take a map of the
world on Mediator's projection
and draw a line from the middle of
Behring strait southwesterly to a
point midway between Atcou isl
and, the westernmost of the Aleu
tian archipelago, and Copper isl
and, just east of Kamtchatka. That
represents the line of demarcation
precisely stated and established by
the treaty ceding Alaska to the
United Slates. The triangular
body of water inclosed by this im
aginary frontier on the northw--.
by the chain of the Aleutian t-l-ands
on the south, and on the r.ii
by the coast of Alaska proper,
forms the "inclosed sea" ovor
which the state department claims
exclusive dominion for the United
Attou island, the westernmost
point of United States territory, is
in the longitude of New Zealand.
It is actually further west of Sitka
than San Francisco is wetof New
York. Attou is as far west of
New York as New York is west of
Trebizond or Moscow. More than
a hundred miles beyond this island
in open Pacific waters, is the west
ern limit reached by the laws which
congress makes that is the claim.
It does not look much from the
geographical point of view, as if
Behring sea is aland-locked water.
The Beau Ideal of a Family Medicine.
A remedy which promptly and completely
relieves ailments of such common occur
rence as Indigestion, constipation, bilious
ness and disorders of a malarial type. Is as
suredly the.beau Ideal of a family medicine.
Such Is Hostetter's"Stomach Bitteis, which
Is not only capable of eradicating these com
plaints, but also counteracting a tendency
to kidney troubles, rheumatism and prema-
ture decadence of stamina. Taking It "all
round." as the phrase Is, there is probably
not In existence so useful, effective and
agreeable household panacea as the Bit
ters. Nor is It less highly esteemed by the
medical profession than by the families or
America. Numberlea testimonials from
professional sources of Irrefraglble authen
ticity evince its merit. The demand for it
abroad, no less than in the land ol Its dis
covery. Is certainly Increasing, time and ex
perience of Its beneficent effects" confirming
the high opinion originally onned of It.
"Suppose, Tommy," said a Kan
sas City teacber, "that your father
owned forty lots, and a man from
Chicago should buy sixteen of
them, and a man from St. Louis
should buy twenty, what would be
left?" "Where are them men
from?" asked Toramv; "Chicago
and St. Louis?" "Yes." "Pa
would be left; he wouldnt get any
money."- The Epoch.

"Woman in Politics.
The president and Mrs. Cleve
land were to have made a brief
call on Mrs. Hendricks, at Indian
apolis, and to have lunched with
Mrs. McDonald. And thus is con
tinued a struggle between the
a'miable ladies which has been go
ing on a good many years, and the
woman in politics continues to be
more conspicuous in Indianapolis
than anywhere else. Mrs. Hen
dricks and Mrs. McDonald- the
latter as noted for her beauty as
the former is for her shrewdness
and ability have never frater
nized, and their personal differ
ences have been shared to a con
siderable extent by tho society of
the city and state. Indeed, the
woman in politics has always been
more or less conspicuous in this
country, though more especially
so of late years. The wife of An
drew Jackson was the innocent
cause of many differences among
Democrats. Salmon P. Chase had
not an abler supporter, and had
few with more influence, than his
daughter, Mrs. Sprague. Mrs.
Hayes was credited with being
the larger half of the presidential
administration while her husband
occupied the presidential chair,
and Mrs. Logan was an inspira
tion to her husband, the general
greater than all other influences
combined. Tho case of Mrs.
Cleveland need not be quoted. It
speaks for itself in every newspa
per, and is especially prominent
just now. y. JT. Graphic.
