A Common Cold
Is often the beginning of serious affec
tions of the Threat, Bronchial Tubes,
and Lungs. Therefore, the importance
of early and effective treatment cannot
be overestimated. Ayer's Cherry Pec
toral may always be relied upon for the
speedy cure of a Cold or Cough.
Last January I was 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, Pawtucker, K. I.
I contracted a severe cold, which
suddenly developed into Pneumonia,
presenting dangerous and obstinate
symptoms. .My physician ordered the
use of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Ilia in
structions were followed, and the result
was a rapid and permanent cur
II. E. Stiuipson, Rogers Prairie, Tex.
Two years ago I suffered from a severe
Cold, which settled on my Lungs. I con
sulted various physicians, anil took-the
medicines they 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 Vandcrpool, Mendville, Pa.
Some time ago I took a slight Cold,
which, being neglected, grew worse, and
settled on my Lungs. 1 had a hacking
cough, and was very weak. Those who
knew me best considered my life to be
in great danger. I continued to suffer
until I commenced using Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. Less than one bottle of this
valuable medicine cured me, and I
feel that I owe the preservation of my
life to its curative powers. 3Irs. Ann
Lockwood, Akron, .New York.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is considered,
here, the one great remedy for all diseases
of the threat and lungs, and is more
in demand than any other medicine of its
class. J. F. Roberts, Magnolia, Ark. tt

Stephen A. Douglas, a boy oi fif
teen years, to give up all hope of
entering college, he indentured
himself as an apprentice to a cabi
net maker. For two years he
worked at his trade with such in
dustry as to become a first-rate
cabinet maker. A feeble body
and poor health forced him out of
the shop. "When he discovered
that he could not be a mechanic
he determined to study law. He
began a course of classical studies
at an academy, and carried it on
with the application which enabled
him within four years to master
nearly an entire collegiate course.
During that time he also persist

the academy and law ofiice to seek
his fortune in that vaguely de

unknown to any person in the
town. He sought employment as
a law clerk, offering his services
for his board and lodging. No
lawyer wanted him. He sold his
school books to pay for bread and
bed, and walked to "Winchester on
a cold, December day.
The morning after his arrival he
left his lodgings to find employ
ment. As he approached the pub
lic square, he saw a crowd, and
joined it. An administrator, about
to sell by auction the stock in
trade of a deceased merchant, was
halted by the want of some man
competent to keep a record of
sales, and to make out the bills of
No person in the crowd, though
several of them had been asked,
was willing to undertake the duty.
The administrator was embar

"P'raps this 'ere stranger," ssM
a man, pointing to young Don iri-sK,
"would do the job. He look as
if he could read, write and cipher."
The administrator insisted on
him to serve and tendered him the
liberal salary of two dollars a day.
He consented; the auction lasted
three days, and the temporary clerk
had six dollars in his pocket, no
mean sum for a man whose cash
amounted to thirty-seven cents.
But he had gained more than mon
ey. The promptness with which
he discharged his duty won for
him the admiration of buyers, ad
It was in the days when presi
dent Jackson was fighting the
United States bank, and party
feelings were at fever heat. At
intervals during the sale and in
the evenings he joined in the po
litical conversations which took
place. The ability and the good
nature which he showed in defend
ing the president caused the old
farmers to take him to their hearts.
It was discovered that he was poor
and wished to open a school. In
a few days his new friends pro
vided him with forty pupijs, each
of whom was to pay three dollars
"While teaching school he de
voted his evenings to studying
the statutes of Illinois. On Satur
day afternoons he acted as
counsel before the justice's court.
At the end of tliree months he
abandoned his school and opened
a law office. The money he had
received for teaching, together
with his fees for legal services,
justified him in applying to .the
supreme court for a license to prac
In seven years from the date of
his application he occupied a seat
upon the supreme court bench,
and in ten years he went back to
the east as member of a congress.
His subsequent career as a United
States senator, a leader of the
Democratic party, and a presiden
tial candidate is well known.
Doubtless it is spotted with errors
and faults, for he was but a man; but
it illustrates that honor and fame
come to him who, instead of re
pining at his situation, uses it as a
""We "Were a Boy Myself, Once."
A rule for a school-boy's lunch
eon is given by Burdette: "I
would just take the market basket,
if the family was going to use it
that day, and I would cut up a loaf
of bread, and trim off every bit of
the crust to keep the boy from ly
ing about it and telling me that
he ate it and didn't fire it over the
fence when he came home. I
would cut the loaf of bread into
slices and spread on butter until it
began to fall off, then I would
stack on the sugar as long as it
would hold. Then I would load
in a couple of links of sausage and
some slabs of ham; a dainty cluster
of hard-boiled eggs say half
a dozen all the cake there was
in the house, and fill up the rest
of the space with pie, and then
stuff two of his pockets with
apples to eat during school
hours, and fill the rest of
his pockets with nuts, and
give him five cents to buy "taffy."
Then, if that bo- came home at 4
o'clock and said he didn't have
enough luncheon and couldn't he
have a piece, 1. would give him the
keys to the cellar, cupboard, pan
try, cake chest and fruit closet,
and, yielding to dark despair, go
out into the bam and hang myself.
We were a boy-myself, once."
