A cheap remedy for coughs and
colds is all right, but you want some
thing that will relieve and cure the
more severe and dangerous results of
throat and lung troubles. What
shall you do? Go to a warmer and
more regular climate? Yes, if possi
ble; if not possible for you, then in
either case take the only remedy
that has been introduced in all civil
ized countries with success in severe
throat and lung troubles, "Boschee's
German Syrup." It not only heals
and stimulates the tissues to destroy
the germ disease, but allays inflam
mation, causes easy expectoration,
Uives a good night's rest, and cures
the patient. Try one bottle. Rec
ommended many years by all drug
gists in the world. For sale by Jones
& Gibson.

The Coach Id F.mrlr Times
The introduction of coaches id Eng
land is credited to Queen Eleanor,
who died in 1291. Her death was thus
amiably discussed in a ballad of tbe
time, entitled "A Warning I'iece to
England Against Pride and Wicked
nesse. being tbe fall of Queen Eleanor,
wife of Edward, King- of England,
who. for her pride, by God's judg
ment, sunk into 1 he ground at Charing
Cross, and rose at Queensbitbe: "
She was tbe first that did invent.
In coaches brave to ride;
She was the first that brought thia
To deadly sin and pride.
Later testimony, no less direct,
credits the first introduction of
' coaches to Sir Thomas Chamberlayne,
' English ambassador to the court of
Charles V. of Spain; and again to the
earl of Rutland, for whom Waller
Rippon. Queen Elizabeth's subsequent
! coachmaker, is recorded to have built
the first coach that ever was seen in
England, Anno Domini, 1555."
However this may be. a great stir
was certainly made in England by the
magnificence of the royal coaches
which Queen Bess received as pres
ents from her admirers abroad. Her
admirers at home followed suit. Thus
I Sir IMiilin Sid nev risked his knicrhtlv
reputation by appearing in a coacli
instead of on horseback, riding int
Shrewsbury in his wagon, "with his
trumpeter blowynge, very joyful to
behold." Good Bishop Hall, in hia
"Satires, published shortly after
wards, took a less joyful view:
Is't not a shame to see a groome
Sit perched in an idle chariot roome.

It is computed the death rate of
the world is sixty-seven and the birth
rate seventy a minute, and this seem
