"I have noticed that the sale on Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets is almost invariably to those who have once used them," says Mr. J. H. Weber, a prominent drug gist of Cascade, Iowa. What better recommendation could any medicine have than for people to call for it wheu again in need of such a remedy? Try them when you feel dull after eating, when you have a bad taste in your mouth, feel bilious, have no appetite or when troubled with constipation, and you are certain to be delighted with the prompt relief which they afford.

IL, January 14, Miss Blanche Byers was elected presi dent Miss Anna Long, vice-presi dent Miss Allie Jones, secretary Miss Myrtle Burgan, treasurer. For years the W. C. TV U. plan ned to open a reading room in Princeton. A considerable amount of money was subscribed for that purpose, enough to show that the people of Princeton were desirous of having such a room, and willing to help maintain it. Now that a suitable room can be procured, the Y. W. C. T. IL are planning to open a reading room. They have engaged two rooms in the Odd Follows' block, and intend using one for games, also occasionally some light refreshments, and the other for a reading room. They have sent for the following periodicals: Review of Reviews, Cosmopolitan, Success, Campbell's Illustrated Monthly, Curkey's Home Journal, New Voice and the Ram's Horn. The officers of the "Y are greatly encouraged with the success they are having in soliciting funds. For a few hours work they have $13 cash and $7.75 to be paid each month. Miss Blanche Byers, as president of the I'" is chairwoman (ex-officio) of the work, and will gladly confer with any one regarding the plan. Donations of books, fresh papers and magazines, left with her will be used to the very best advantage. Several members of the Odd Fel lows' lodge have expressed a will ingness to help in the important work, and it is through their influ ence that the work has been started with promptness enough to secure the rooms. Rev. Gratz and others have donated periodicals and a book shower is being planned. Revival meetings are now being held in what was formerly one of the largest still houses of the Snow Spring distillery in west Tennessee. 4* $- Out of two thousand criminals in American prisons, only twelve had pet animals during their child hood. .$. .3. In Denmark a drunkard receives medical attention at the expense of the man who sold him the last drink. $- A bill to give full suffrage to women in Australia has passed its third reading. Readers of the New Voice are urged to give prompt and vigorous attention to the movement on foot to abolish the International Quar terly Temperance Lesson, which reaches twelve million Sunday school scholars. In 1890 Francis "Willard secured the inauguration of the temperance lesson, and now three prominent men on the committee whose names are well known, are helping on the con spiracy to defraud the youth of the temperance lesson. Rev. A. E. Dunning, D. D., wants the lesson abolished because it "breaks in" upon the series and gets the child ren's minds away from godly things. How very human this sounds! Peter taught that temper ance came before godliness. First faith, then virtue and knowledge, then temperance and we are assur ed that intemperate people do not seek godliness, and we plead for the lesson to remain as it is, and favor adding more faith, temper ance, knowledge that our children as they learn these things, may grow into godlike men and women. Rev. A. F. Schauffler is pictured as sitting in his New York office with cob pipe in his mouth, reitterating the statements made by Dr. Dun ning. It would seem that these two learned men could find only this one flimsy excuse for throwing out the temperance les son, and we doubt their ability to find a single reasonable excuse. Dr. Potts, chairman of the committee, asserts t^at there are not enough temperance lessons in the bible. What trash and nonsense! Any boy or girl of ten years of age can find lessons exorting temperance in nearly every chapter of the NewPrivate Testament. EFFIE A. BURGAN. Highest cash price for hides, pelts and furs. F. L.
