Do They Ever Read Thatr Proofs ?

lution, but refrain, as we do not ap
prove of lottery schemes, especially,
when it requires so much mental
work; so will give them a cursory no
tice instead. In the first paragraph
it reads as if the distillery, only, was
captured, and not the Chapman boys,
when it is reasonable to suppose that
if they were in there they were cap
tured; especially, when it is the duty
of an officer to make an arrest if he
his proof of the offence, or has rea
son or information to cause or make
him believe that party arrested, or
wanted, has committed said offence
and the unwritten law with deputy
marshals is to "nab" everything in
sight. In the next notice he makes a
"bad break" for he makes the type
read as if the parties were "a cut up
blockade distillery on cane creek, last
Saturday night," when we know there
is no convincing argument that evolu
tion can take place in so short a time
and that another transformation
would be perpetuated the next day.
There were several hundred gallons
of beer and mash poured out and the
fumes of this, together with being out
in the "pure mountain dew," may be
sufficient cause for this mistake. We
don't know. Contemporary, hereaf

King's Englisli, and a careful perusal

Mr. Fred M iller-, of Irving, Ill.,
writes that he had a severe Kidney
trouble for many years, with severe
pauins in his back and also that his
bladder was affected. He tried many
so called kidney cures but without
any good result. About a year ago
he began the use of Electric Bitters
and found relief at once. Electric
Bitters is especiaIlly adapte3d to cure
of all Kidnely and Liver troubles and
often gives almost instant relief. One
trial will prove our statement. Price
