I have been troubled with my kidneys for four or five years, and lust November it seemed to change all at once for the worse. I had no control of my water, would have to get up In a hurry to urinate every hour in the night, and as often in the day, and sometimes oftener. Was very weak and emaciated, lost my flesh and was very low spirited, with a great deal of pain in my bladder. I called I on T. v. s. aiorian, of Enterprise, and he told me ho had been troubled the same way, and was cured by using E. It. Thompson's Barosma, or Back ache, Liver and Kidney Cure. I bought a bottle and it helped me at once, but overwork set me back. I think if I had kept quiet two bottles would have cured me, but as it was I used some eight bottles and am now well. For two months I passed ulcer ous and bloody matter, which seemed to work down from the bladder and out of the system. Iam now as well and healthy as a child, and sleep and eat as well as ever. I take pleasure in recommending it to all who are troubled in like manner. I live two miles east of Pleasantville, Pa., on the old turnpike. W. D. Byles. P. S. Mr. Byles says he has gained iO pounds since he commenced using the Barosma. Prepared by E. K. Thompson, Titusville, Pa.;Price $1.00 per bottle. For sale by Dr. T. S. Hartley, Ridg way Pa.

The great reduction in the price of envelopes enables us to print them at very cheap rates.

After a long chase, in which from one to two dozen men engaged, the frightened animal was shot by Bev- Mercer in the or chard near Mrs. Houk's house. The deer weighed, when dressed, about 100 pounds.

This is the name of a bright eight-page monthly paper published at the National Cap ital and devoted to pensions, bounties, claims, patents, and the army and navy. It is published by Nathan W.
