•at one o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Four thousand envelopes had been

the city and practically all of them
contained something in them when
taken up yesterday. The offerings
ranged from the tiny mite of one cent
of the little child to ten dollar bills
from the more opulent. Only a com

In the Brain as in the Battery, let a single element become weakened from yesterday's use and less

Water and albumen exist plentifully in every-day food, but Phosphate of Potash is often lacking.

Saturday night was a record break
er for attendance at the fall celebra
tion, the crowd being twice as large
as through the day, in fact it seemed
as large as at any previous celebra
tion. Keokuk contributed largely,
sending down one train of four cars.
Frederick C. Hatch spoke at 8 p. m.
for Teddy, being Introduced by R. O.
Marsh. He had a large crowd and an

ST. VIW DANCE
The Cure of This Case Is of
Vital Interest to the Parents
of Every Nervous Child.
Mr. James F. Thompson, a well
known printer, of No. 301 AVest Iowa
street, Memphis, Tenn., has recently
told of a cure in lu's family that will in
terest every nervous sufferer. Parents
of pale, weak, nervous school children
will be especially interested. Mr.
"I have a son, Ray, who at the age of
five years was scared by Eomo boys. In
about two weeks' time he broke down
or gavo away completely. lie had to
go to bed and the doctors said that he
had St. Vitus' dance. During the en
tire night and for many nights he would
lie awake and cry. lie could not sleep
at all, but would roll and toss all night
long. Ilis arms and head jerked and
twitched and he became so nervous that
he could not feed himself. He got so
that he couldn't even speak. He had
particularly bad spells, which came on
about every three months. He was
confined to bed for two months when
he was first taken sick.
"I had a nerve specialist anil two of
the best physicians in Memphis with
him during the first year of the disease.
They couldn't do anything for him and
didn't help him a bit. Finally the last
physician said that he would have to
outgrow it. I then bought a box of Dr.
"Williams' Pink rills. They helped him
right away and, although lie had been
sick for a year and a half, ho began to
cat and to gain strength. I gave him
the pills until he entirely recovered his
health. lie has never had an attack
of St. Vitus' dance since. He is at
tending school andisinperfecthenlth."
St. Vitus' dance, nervous debility or
neurasthenia, neuralgia, sciatica, ner
vous headaches and nervous dyspepsia
are duo to tired, weak, exhausted ner
ves. The correct treatment in each
case is to build up and purify the blood,
which alone can give the nerves nour
ishment. Unless you build up the
Mood, it is useless to try to reach the
nerves with medicine or nourishment.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple contain the very elements which
enable the blood to nourish the nerves
until they becomo strong.
Write today for tho freo booklet,'
eases of the Nervous System."

Value of a Laugh.
When you go to visit the sick do
not forget that a good laugh Is one of
the beat tonics and a bit of humorous
gossip or piquant saying is better
than any drugs. Make the invalid
smile if you cannot start up a laugh,
but make your visit short: remember
that too much of a good thingf Is ag
bad as too little.
