Predicted that Maryland Will Give Tafi 30,000 Majority. Dr. James E. Sullivan, a prominent cot tager at Xarragansett Pier and a presi dential elector on the Parker ticket foi Rhode Island four years ago, upon learning of the nomination of \Y. J. Bryan as the Democratic presidential candidate, ge.ee out a statement declaring his intention to vote for William U. Taft in November. Eugene W. Leake, Democratic member of Congress fir the ninth district of New Jersey, has written to Win. II. Taft an nouncing that he will vote fur Mr. Taft and offering his services to the Republican nominee during the campaign. In his letter Mr. Leake makes this statement: “The conservative citizens of this country, who are neither reactionary nor the representa tives of predatory wealth or special inter ests, hut who desire a rigid enforcement of the law with equal handed justice, must, loot: to on for protection against the wave of radical Sm and class prejudice which will follow ’.lie Denver convention.” Democratic financiers and bankers of Baltimore are coming out for Taft and Mu-noun. Michael Jenkins, president of the Safe Dmv>i: Trust Company, and fermei p; eMdent of the Merchants *\r Aimers’ Transportation Company, a promi 21 •-*’ 11 Democrat, said that he would not vote “It is my opinion,” said Mr. Jenkin>, “that Bryan will lose Maryland by no,00" majority, lie has never won :n Maiyland, and I see no reason why lie should carry it this year. His election would be a >erious blow to the country. 1 trust that Taft will be conservative in his letter of acceptance ol tin* Republican nom ination, e>pecially on the anti-injunction plank." Alexander Brown, of the banking house of Brown A: Sons, also advocates the election of Taft. “Although a firm believer in the policies >f the Democratic party as upheld by Cleveland,” said Mr. Brown, “it is my firm conviction that the interests of the country would be safer in the hands of Tuft than* in the hands of Bryan, and I shall accordingly vote the Republican tick et." Several Democratic presidents of banks take the same position. Members of the Baltimore Stock Exchange, almost to a man, are for Taft. IS SUMMER TRYING UPON YOUR HEALTH? You Need a Tonic to Keep I p Your Strength Not a Laxative to Further Weaken the Body Not all tonics are suitable for use during the. hot months. Many tonic preparations are also purgatives and tend to aggravate a condition prevalent in summer. If you are weak and run-down, pale and without energy and ambition, take a sug ge.-tioi. fi iini the hot countries of South and Central America where the tonic remedy almost exclusively used is Dr. Williams’ pink Piils. The reason for the popularity of these piiis in regions where it is always >ummer m that they have no laxative action, thev build up tlm blood without purging and weakening. They give strength and do not take it away. An excellent example of the Ionic a**thdi of this remedy is the case of _M,v, bmt R. Searles or Hanover street, Mar.Mmh, Mich. “I was taken sick a few years ago,” she v. “ n; whole system being run down ai d debilitated. 1 had no strength nor am bition, \<"l fearfully in flesh and my com plexion was weak and digestion poor. I had a coimtant craving for food, although tn. stomach pained me all of the time. There was also a great deal of pain in my back, li ins and sides and I had hard headaches. My blood was thin and impoverished and I was rapidly going into a decline. I could nut work and life didn’t seem worth living. “i tried doctors and several medicines for ever a year with but little benefit. My sis ter, who was visiting me, urged me to try Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills. 1 bought some at once and after taking a few boxes was restored to health, gained about 30 pounds in weight and have been the picture of health ever since.” Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills are sold by all druggists, or will be sent, postpaid, on re ceipt of price, 50 cents per box; six boxes §2.50, by the Dr. Williams Medicine Com pany. Schenectady, X. 1. SAWDUST FOR PRACTICAL USE. Sawdust is one of the puzzling wastes in lumbering operations. The waste is «priniiR too. for the kerf—the part cut out by the saw in the mill and trans formed into sawdust always beais a rather high ratio to the boards obtain ed. In cutting tbin stuff, one-fourth of the log. or even more, may be kerf. Efforts to turn sawdust into pulp for the paper mill have usually been un successful on account of mechanical difficulties in handling. In several Eu ropean countries, however, a new way has been found of turning sawdust to account. The sawdust, chiefly pine and lir, is ground with millstones, exactly as’old-time mills made corn meal, or wheat or rye flour. Expensive ma chinery is not required, but it is neces sary to take special precaution against Sires which might start from sparks be tween the millstones. The sawdust flour is sold to the dyna mite factories to be mixed with nitro glycerine and forms the body or ab sorbent for that high explosive. It is also in demand for the manufacture of cheap blotting papers. The mills in the Ilarz mountains in Germany, an im portant manufacturing center, are kept busy meeting this demand. The price of the “flour” in Germany ranges from $7.50 to $12.50 a ton. It is shipped in bags, like meal, or in bales of about 40 cubic feet, made by means of high pressure. It Can’t Be Beat. The best of all teachers is experience. C. M. Harding of Silver City, North Caro lina. says: “I'find Electric Bitters does all that’s claimed for it. For Stomach, Liver, and Kidney troubles it can t be beat. I have tried it and find it a most excellent medicine.” Mr. Harden is right; it s the best of all medicines also for weakness, lame back, and all run down conditions. Best too for chills and malaria, bold under guarantee at R. H. Moody’s drug store. 50c._ foleyskhweycok Hakes Kidneys and Bladder Right OLD-TIME SEAFARERS.

In every State of the Union there are many tracts of so-called agricultural land, which, owing to their hilly char acter, poor soil, or numerous boulders, are not suitable for farming. The own ers of such tracts are often at a loss to know what to do with them. Without question, the best use to which land of this kind can be put is to plant it with trees. One of the fundamental prin ciples of forest economics is, tiiat soil which is not good enough to make the j growing of cereal crops profitable should he devoted to the production of wood 1 crops. This does not mean that trees | grow better on poor soil than on fertile ! soil. They will, of course, grow better ' I on fertile soil. But, in proportion to I the money invested, better returns are j secured from trees planted on the less valuable land. Most of the cone-bearing trees, and many hardwoods as well, will thrive in soil of medium fertility. All trees, MO\»cVcl, uu nut in 11 v c uu ijuui. oiuiuj ridges, or on hillsides where the soil is thin, llinek walnut, hardy catalpa, and white oak, for their best development, require a deep, fertile soil, well watered and well drained, and it is not advisable to plant them where these requirements are not met. An Ohio farmer is solving the prob lem of what to do with the worn-out farm, lie owns an old homestead of sixty acres, which he is desirous of keeping in the family. He does not live on the place, however, and farming lias been a losing proposition. He lias, therefore, decided to plant the entire tract with trees. He lias already plant ed 35,000 Norway spruce, set three and one-half feet apart each way, on an area of about gleven acres. These trees will be cut, as they become large enough, for Christmas trees. Chestnut seedlings will be planted in the spaces left by the removal of the spruce, and it is expect ed that they will begin to come in bear ing when the last spruce is out. In addition to the spruce, hardy catalpa, black locust, elm, boxelder, and syca more have been planted. It is planned to put the entire sixty acres in forest within live or six years. The owner is wise in planting several kinds of trees instead of confining himself to one species. Ills forest will be producing six or seven kinds of lumber, chestnuts and Christmas trees, at the same time. BKV. I. U WILLIAMS TK STIBIKS. Rev. t. W. Williams, Huntington, IV.

George received nearly all of the colonel’s cast off clothing. He had his eyes on a cer tain pair of light trousers which were not wearing out fast enough to suit him. so he thought he would hasten matters somewhat by rubbing grease on one knee. When the colonel saw the spot, he called George and asked if lie had noticed it. George said, “Yes, sah, Colo nel, I noticed dat spot and tried mighty hard to get it out, but I couldn’t.’’ “Have you tried gasoline?” the colo nel asked. “Yes, sah, Colonel, but it didn t do ! no good.” I “Have you tried brown paper and a t hot iron?” “Yes, sah, Colonel, I’se done tried ’mos’ everytliiiig I know of, but dat spot wouldn’t come out.” “Well, George, have you tried am monia?” the colonel asked as a last re sort. “No, sah, Colonel, I ain’t tried em on yet, but I knows (ley’ll fit.”.—Every body’s Magazine. A Wonderful Mother. Bringing up nine children on an in come of $4 a week is the task of a couple named Copp, whose home is in the Devonshire village of Higher IIux ham, six miles from Exeter, England. The couple have had nineteen children in all, six of whom are dead. Of the thirteen surviving, the eldest son, aged 19, is a sailor in the Royal Navy, and three daughters are out at service. Five of the children attend school at Poltimore, two miles away. The couple were married twenty-four years ago, and the husband, who is now 44, is employed as a roadman by the Rural District Council. Asked how she contrived to bring up such a large family on the 16 shillings a week which her husband earned, Mrs. Copp remarked that it would be a very difficult thing even for her to explain. All she could say was that it had been a very hard struggle. They had to pay $35 a’year for their cottage and garden. They helped matters out a bit by grow ing their own vegetables and keeping pigs, and she “economized as much as possible by making and mending the the children’s garments.” WILLIAMS’ KIDNEY PILLS.

My treatment of Pimples, Blackheads, Blotches and all eruptions of the skin, are as follows and has invariably proved very successful. Wash the face carefully every night before retiring with warm water and a little oat meal tied up in a small cloth bag, then after di ving well, use the following inexpensive and perfectly harmless prescription which can be filled at any drug store.
