' A sad and terrible accident oe purred about two o'clock Monday morning while the family of An tonio; Bustam ante were soundly -sleeping under an outer shed a short distance in front of their home, the upright poles on which the mud roof rested suddenly broke and fell with a death dealing crash on six of the slumbering family.

Three sons were sleeping at the time just outside of the shed and escaped injury and immediately gave the alarm.

Dr. Cotter was summoned and quickly responded to the call, arriving there just as the roof had been removed and the dead and injured had been extricated. The Doctor gave his attention to the mother and daughter, but on examination found both were cold in death and it is his opinion that the' were instantly killed.

Plan's Italiitmmii f to fiiimscir. The. most inhuman outrages, which would disgrace the savage, man pprpetrates upon his own system by swallowing drastic purgatives which convulse his stomach, agonize his intestines and weaken his system. Many people constantly do this under the impression that medicaments only which are violent in their action, and particularly cathartics, are of any avail. Irreparable injury to health is wrought under this mistaken idea. The laxative which most nearly ap proaches the beneficent action of nature is Hostettt-r's Stomach Bitters, which is painless but thorough, and invigorates the intestinal canal in stead of weakening and irritating it. The liver and the stomach share in the benign discipline instituted by this comprehensive medicine, whose health ful influence is felt throughout the system. Malarious, rheumatic, kidney and nervous complaints succumb to it. Charles Landon was seized Wednesday with a fainting spell at the S. P. hotel and remained unconscious for some little time.

We are pleased to note that Mr. Landon has fullv recovered from his recent illness. He will soon take a trip to California for his health, in hopes that it may prove beneficial to his eresight.
