A Cougher's Coffers may not be so full as he wishes, but if ho la wi3e he will neglect hi3 coffers awhile and attend to his cough. A man's coffers may be so secure that no one can take them away from him. But a little cough has taken many a man away from his coffers. . The "slight cough " is somewhat like the small pebble that lie3 on the mountain side, and appears utterly insignificant. A fluttering bird, perhaps, starts the pebble rolling, and the rolling pebble begets , an avalanche that buries a town. Many fatal diseases begin with a slight cough.

Well Planned, Well Executed Scheme Blood Hounds Following Tracks Made By Them. Yorkville, S. C (Special). There was'a wholesale delivery of prisonersat the county jail Sunday morning about 3 o'clock. Among the prisoners that es caped are M. B. Beese and Dave F. Luckie, convicted of the murder of Chas. F. Williams, of Tunnel Hill, Ga., and sentenced to the penitentiary for life, but waiting.the result of an ap peal to the Supreme Court. There were only two white prisoners that es caped, but in addition to these were eleven negroes, who effected their es cape also. These negroes are charged with various misdemeanors,ibut none of the crimes are Berious. ...... The escape of the prisoners was not discovered until about 7 o'clock Monday morning, but Sheriff Logan promptly gave the alarm and summoned his posses. The manner in which the delivery was effected shows, a great deal of ingenuity and is undoubtedly due to the fertile brain of M. B. Beese. When the jail was searched it was found that a hole large enough to admit the body of a man had been bored from the cell of Beese through the ceiling. Through this hole the prisoners crawled to a point directly over the stairway. Here another hole was cut in the ceding and by means of blankets the prisoners let themselves down to the floor, and from there to the ground by means of th stairway was a very simple thing. For four successive years the grand jury has recommended that cages be put in the jail in place of the present insecure arrangement, but the county commissioners have been deaf to such appeals. No blame can be attached to Sheriff Logan, nor were the people of this town surprised at the delivery for the condition of the jail was well knoWn. Blood hounds have been secured and are now following tracks supposed to have been made by some of the prison ers. It is the common supposition that Beese drove to llpck Hill in convey ances provided for him by his friends and there took the train for the North. He was known to have had about $2,000 on his person. There is a great deal of excitement over th'e delivery and rewards will un doubtedly be offered. On a Bible of Luckie's left in his cell was found these words: 'B. B. Bees, David F. Luckie, ill rciiieuiui tmco ui uo. The Governor has been asked to offer a reward of 8T00, but it is not likely that he will offer this amount A telegram says two of the negroes who escaped hsve been captured in this State. A STRANGE TURN OF INSANITY. Bride and Groom Burn Relative's House, Then Drown Themselves. The bodies of Miller Bipley, aged 25, and his young wife were found in Haw kins county, near Chattanooga, Tenn. The couple had been missing for sev eral days. It appears they burned the residence of Henry Sutherland, a brother of Mrs. Bipley last Saturday night. From her brother's home they went to the Holston river and drowned themselves. A note found in Bipley's pocket requested that the bodies be buried in the same coffin. The cause, of the act is supposed to have been ill feeling between the Bipley and Suther land families. Bipley was highly con nected and had been in the United States army for some time. They had only been married ten days. Two vials of laudanum were found near them, and they had cut the bell rope from the church, evidently for the purpose of tying themselves together. Before taking the fatal leap they piled their outer gaiments and saddles in a church and let their horses loose. Bipley was a close kinsman of Col. Bipley, of Knoxville, attorney for the Southern Bail way DAVIDSON AND NASH. Monuments to be Erected In Memory of These Two Generals. A Washington, D.

Shepard, and they are hold in tho highest esteem. Two years ao, Miss M. F. Shepard, wa stricken with terrible sickness, from which she saffcred long. The history of the case Is so Interesting that we publish the lady's own version as it Is every way worthy of perusal; "Two years ago last February, I was stricken with a terrible pain arouni my heart, which prostrated mo for hour, and from then on I grew weaker urtll spring, when from Impaired circulation and impov erishment of the blood, a itomach difficulty set in, bloating my body fearfully. Of course I was confined to my bed and to a -Id to my sorrows a general attack of rheumatism fot lowed, so that motion was painful, and loco motion impossible. "Several physicians were consulted but they gave me no relief, until the last came, whoso helped my stomach difficulty, that after several months I was able to nit up. Tho rheumatism, however, stubbornlv stayed, and I was advised that my only hope was ine not springs or Arkansas. I was prepanng to make the Journey, when I was recommended to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. "JJunnc my Illness. I bad taken two boxes Of these self same plll3, but not in the way recommended, as t was taking other reme dios. Now though, I determined to try them properly, as I was no longer under a physi cian's cars, and could do as I pleased,, and my sister, Mias H. A. Shepard, at my request, ordered six boxes of Pink Pills for me, as I eould not leave the house and could only hobble with the aid of crutches. "By the time I bad flnished tne pills. I bad given up crutches, though I was still almost a skeleton from the ordeal through which 1 had passed. 1 am now quite fl3sby, and tho only agent that has caused the change is Dr. Williams' rink Fills, for I used no other medlclnd.

None of my friends expected me to live, and at one time It was feared my reason was giving way. I do not know how to pay a suffi ciently high tribute to Dr, Williams' medi cine.

This was terribly inflamed and spreading so fat, that I prevailed upon her to order flvo dol firs' worth of Dr. Williams Tink Pills, and? test their virtue as a blood cleaner, as the only means of arresting the rapid growth of tho cancer. This she did, and has taken about seven of the boxes, and is still taking them. The sore has stopped spreading, and appears to be healing. When she began to take the pills she was the thinnest living be ing i oversaw that coma move aoout. jnow she has gained in flesh, her skin has re gained its normal appearance, ard she ts stronger, and her general health is better than it has been in many years. .Ood grant Bhe mnv be spared the bornb'.e death with which she was threatened.
