Whether in the form of pill powder
or liquid, the doctor’s prescription for
blood diseases is always the same—
mercury or potash. These drugs bottle
up and poison and dry it up in the
system, but they also dry up the marrow
in the bones at the same time.
The suppleness and elasticity of the
joints give way to a stiffuess, the rack
ing pains of* rheumatism. The form
gradually bends, the bones ache, while
decrepitude and helplessness prema
turely take possession of the body, and
it is but a short step to a pair of
crutches. Then comes falling of
the hair and decay of the bones,—a con
dition truly horrible.
Contagious Blood
Poison—the curse
of mankind—is the
most horrible of all
diseases, and has al
ways bafHed the
doctors. Their pot
ash and mercury
bottle up the poison,
but it always breaks
forth again attack
ing some delicate
organ, frequently
the mouth and
throat, filling them
with eating sores.
S.S.S., is the only
known cure for this
disease. It is guar
anteed purely vege
table, and one thousand dollars reward is
i offered for proof to the contrary. It
never fails to cure Contagious Blood
Poison, Scrofula, Eczema, Rheumatism,
Cancer, or any other disease of the
blood. If you have a blood disease,
take a remedy which will not injure you.
Beware of mercury; dou’t do violence
to your system. Don’t get bottled up1

Democracy which has fought the battles of
the people and won the victory lor the
masses, and wc unqualifiedly pledge our
heartiest support to the able leadership of
\V. J. Bryan and Arthur Bewail.
Resolved, That to further emphasize our
views on the financial question, that wc un
equivocally re-declare that wc are in fa\ or of
the free and unlimited coinage of silver at
tiie old ratio 10 to 1 without asking the con
sent of England or any other nation, feeling

an example in free government wc can also
adopt a financial policy as independent and
as distinctly American.

Sometimes when
the last spark of life
seems almost extin
guished it is fanned
into flame again by
prompt, vigorous ac
tion. It is a mistake
h vwcver, to put cff
action too long_; an
othce mistake is to
despair too easily.
Both these mistakes
are made in dealing
with disease, par
ticularly with con
sumption. It is neg
lected at first until
someone names it.
Then the name
;. strikes terror to the
' 'mind ; the nature of
the disease is inisun
derstood: It is a
blood disease, set
tled in the lungs If
it settled somewhere
else the doctors
would give it a dif
ferent name : - crofula, kidm > disease oi
"liver complaint." But the name only tells
where it scttli s. It is really all one dis
e.i e lie. d Mood ; and there is only oar
cure : — Good Mood.
An abundance if good, rich, red, blood put
into the ciitrulatii in, core; everyone of these
complaints, com umplion as well as the rest
—if it hasn’t gone loo far. It is on this true
phv.'iologic.U p:inciplc fully proven bvex
pefic-ncc—that Dr. 1’icrco-' _i‘.olden Medical
Discovery cures Consumption and all other
blood diseases. It tones up the blood mak
ing organs lo produce a fresh supply of
healthy, red blind; this carries new nour
ishment and lit' lo ihc wasted lung tissue ;
or .'my other tissue that is affected. It
drives out the poisonous disease - germs
which clog the skin, liver or kidneys. It is
simply .a question of purifying and building
up • where there i' anything left to build on
the'"Holden Medical Discovery" will in
fallibly build up and cure. It cures cases
which doctors declare "incurable.” That
word has lost its meaning since Doctor
pierce s wonderful "Discovery.”

.1 Splendid Tribute from linn. Joatnh
Patterson, of Memphis.
Hon. Josiah Patterson, the able Represen
tative in Congress from the Memphis (i enn.)
district and who is a candidate for re elec
tion on a sound money platform, addressed
an immense meeting in that city last 1 hunt
day evening. During bis speech be paid
the following tribute to President Cleveland:
The Chicago platform does not deign to
mention the name of Grover Cleveland.
His administration was assailed all along
the line, but hit fellow Democrats were si
lent in respect to him as if be never existed.
The distinguished gentleman who competes
with me for the honor of a seat in Congress
(Hon. E \V. Carmack, fr*c silverite) some
times refers to him ; and, on one occasion,
in bitterness of bis soul, lie donounced him
as the‘‘Buffalo hangman." I dissent from
all this. Three times has the Democratic
party nominated Grover Cleveland for the
presidency. He is the only man who has
led the Democratic hosts to victory in a pe
riod of fortv years. I know him, and I know
him to be patriotic, unselfish, and devoted
to the welfare of bis country. When the
party spirit of the hour shall have passed
away ; when the aspersions and denuncia
tions of partisans have been forgotten, be
will lake his place among the foremost men
of bis time.
‘ I never confront a Southern audience
that I do not feel like protesting against the
treatment which the President lias received
at the hands of some of onr Southern states
men. I protest that be di serves a place in
the afiections of the Southern people. 1
protest '.hat he has done more to live down
sectionalism and to restore the 1 nion —a
union of h**art and sentiment, a union as
our fathers understood it—than any man of
his time.
He lias appointed four judges of the Su
I nreme CoiifL of tile United States, and two
of them have been from the South. Me ha*
appointed two judge* in the six'.ii judicial
circuit, and both of them have been from
the South and both were ex Confederate *<>i
diers. Go to Washington : Four member*
of hi* cabinet from the South, two < f them
old Confederates. Go into all the depart
ment*, and everywhere you will find the
honored sons of the South recognized by this
administration. Go abroad : The ambassa
dors to England, to France, mini*ter* to
Russia and to Mexico, all from the South
and three of them old Confederate soldiers
So with the minister* to Spain, to Portugal
to Turkey, to Persia, to Peru, to Chili; and
everywhere throughout the world have
1 we representatives in the consular *ervic<
I of the government.
“The pending situation in Cuba calls trn
not only a diplomat, hut h soldier, and a mar
of courage and discretion, \\ ho did tin
President select to represent the tl tg of t h*
republic at Havana at this critical period
■ It was Fitzhugh Lee, of \ irginia Tin
Hamptons have been a glorious family ii
South Carolina. The grandfather was i
revolutionary hero, the father was a hero o
the war of 1812, and the grandson, Genera
Wade Hampton, was the lieutenant of Gen
Lee and the savior of South Carolina fron
carpet bag rule. This man <>f gb*riou
achievements and a glorious ancestry wa
driven from the Sen ate by l illman.of Sou l
Carolina. Discredited by the S ate he loved
aged and infirm, with hi* fortune swep
away, and scarcely means to maintain him
self in his old age, he was taken up an
made railroad commissioner by the Presi
dent. And so, all along tiie line, lie ha
been the friend to her bravest and her true*
sons. I know not what Mr. Catmack ma
do or say, but my right arm mav wither b
my side and may I forget to speak m
mother tongue before I speak otherwise tha
in honor of Grover Cleveland.”
Mr. Romanu* Hunter of Berkeley Sprinj
as has hecu called upon by voters of Morgii
;i- county to become a candidate for Di-tri
Delegate to the Legislature.
Li Hung Chang.
The great Chinese statesman, Li Hung
Chang, arrived in New York on Friday, and
was received with high honors. Eleven
war ships were in review and the harbor
was crowded with craft, big and little. The
distinguished visitor was escorted to the
Waldorf Hotel by U. S. troops and became
the guest of the National Government.—
The receiving party was headed by General
Huger. On Saturday President Cleveland
arrived from “Buzzard’s Bay," and gave a
formal reception at the palatial re*i lence ot
lion. Win. C Whitney. These formalities
occupied only thirty minutes, and Mr.
Cleveland returned to “Buzzard’s Bay.”
LI HUNG CHANG’S GREETING.
Alter the formal greeting- Li HfingChang
addre-sed the President as follows:
“Your excellency, it affords uie great
pleasure to have the honor to be presented
to your excellency. The reputation of voai
highly esteemed virtues is widely known
throughout the world, and in you the citi
z.ens of the United States of America liavr

The lleallty of Wart-Charming.
The case with which warts can be •’char
med away” by niggestion has long been
known. I will quote two cases. The pa
tient in the first case was my wife, then a
little girl, and the account was written for
me by her mother. ‘‘I remember it all {■er
fectly. It was when K—was about six
years old, just before we went to Boston to
j live. .She had warts on her hands for over
a year. They had spread until her bands
were not only badly disfigured, but very
painful, as they were apt to crack and bleed.
I'wo physicians, both relatives of ours, had
prescribed for them, and we had followed
' directions without success We were in
Lawrence, at 'I 1*—s’. A lady came to tea,
noticed the warts, and offered to remove
them by a "charm.” As I had once or
twice been relieved in childhood in the same
way, I was delighted at the offer, She then
went through some mummery,# rubbing
them and muttering something, I think,
and then announced that they would be
■rone in a month. They were, every one.
In a few days they began to dry up and dis
appear. So fur ns I can remember, nho
nev. r had nnother. When I was a child
there was a neighbor of ours who used to
remove all the warts in the neighborhood.
1 never heard of his failing, and I know of
many successful removals in our own fam
ily, He used a piece of thread. He would
tie it around the wart—if be could—with
•olemnity; rit’* it three times and very care
fully put the piece ot thread in a paper in
his pocket-book. This made a very great
impression on ns, I remember. It seemed
next to a church service having your wart
taken off.’’— Appleton’e f\>pular faience
