The city chronometer in the tower ot the w Court House seems to be suffering Irom 'a rather tough worm on its little in side ' or some other incongruous inhabitant of its mechanical bowels, which causes a most erratic behavior of the aforesaid time piece. Several times since it was started riking arrangements have acted in a giddy manner, occasionally refusing rform their functions at all aud at times making people believe they were victims of an optical delusion or bad been up too iate the night before by sound ing an hour entirely different from that in dicated by the hands. Just how a brand new clock, conceited in its faultless (?) mechanism and proud of its pedigree, de rived from a long line of E. Howard ances tors, can reconcile such frivolous conduct with its mechanically exact conscience is a matter beyond conjecture. Last night, or rather during the early hours of this morning, it laid off lor a spell, knocking off work at midnight aud remaining quiescent until about 8 o'clock, when it was induced to resume operations, probably by the promise of increased wages. Then public were regaled with dulcet tones of its brazen tongue, while the manipulator was endeavoring to make it catch up to the proper time, it having missed several hours during its nap. An opinion was prevalent at the iime it was purchased that the new clock was to act as a regulator of all minor time-pieces, but this must he erroneous, unless, indeed, it is a "regulator' on the nihilistic order—a fact that is strongly suspected on account of its inclination to quit work without the slightest provocation. There must be some foreign substance in its "inards," and we suggest that Dr. Gibbs administer an emetic to expel the poison. Perhaps its singular action is due to the fact that as a day and night time-piece it is not treated with proper consideration. It has night dials that are supposed to be luminated, but the only agent that lias so lar illuminated them is the light of the sun. There is a strong suspicion that herein lies the motive of its hypocritical conduct. It natural to suppose that any legitimate clock which owns four night dials would be indignant if such attributes were not duly appreciated, aud hence it may be ex cused for stopping in the darkness because its nocturnal faces were not properly il luminated. There is a report that the clock man when lubricating the machinery got hold of an oil can tilled with east side water—hence the theory of the worm on its inside. Auother excuse is that it has not yet become acclimated, but in its airy position it should get such a dose of Mon tana climate as to "naturalize" it the first night in town. However that may be it is patent this stranger among western time pieces needs some encourage me n\ Let its dials be illuminated, its wheels well greased and east side water kept religious ly out ot reach and there is no two to one that it may not develop sufficient energy to gain time instead of lose it. Even that would be more in keeping with western ideas. A fast clock might be tolerated but a slow clock there is no use for. May the genius cbronometrical of it« proud ances tors inspired it with a proper regard for the decencies of its position. "Dr." Gibbs, the custodian and trainer of the white elephant in the court house tower known as the town clock, informs the Hekald that in a short time he will have that time-piece running in such ex cellent shape that it will not vary five seconds in a mouth from the correct time. He says all can regulate their chronome ters by it. and that at the first stroke of 12 every day it w ill uot lie a second either side of high noon. As an explanation of the late whimsical behavior of the great time-keeper, he says that oue of the steel "dogs'' in the machinery was too weak to properly perform its functions and had to be replaced. So it was a dog aud not a worm on its inside, as was suspected yes terday. The gentleman also says that some inquisitive visitor while inspecting the mechanism of the clock had left the stump of a cigar in such a position that, alter one of the wheels worked around, it picked up the "snipe" aud carried it up into the works, where it clogged the wheels and stopped the clock. With "dogs" and "snipe to contend with, it is no wonder the chronometer grew discouraged. How ever, it has now been put in good trim, and its presiding genius is satisfied that it will henceforth keep good time. "the 1(1 ITE ILLUSTRATED. The .Northwest Magazine's Presenta tion of the silver Camp. The July number ot th e Northwest 31<t<j<t inc is devoted to Butte aud its surround ings. The descriptive article, prepared by its gifted editor Smalley, is admirably pre I' witb '1 he pare such ed. Tweoty-three thousand is stated the number of inhabitants, which in ies, of course, in the very liberal esti e the several contiguous miniug camps bin a circuit of some miles of town. ■ illustrations are numerous aud com s favorably with the geneiality of work. Butte proper, so tar as any considerable number of buildings of pre- I tentious appearance is concerned, is greatly ! lacking, but the court buildiDg, the school I house, several denominational structures | and Mr. Clark's residence assist in making j a very creditable showing. The profile [ picturing of the cuv in detail is a very lair , piece of artistic penciling, while the special pieces are executed with particular nicety, j For most of the i,lustrations depicting the ; commanding industry ot the camp, the j artist is necessarily obliged to go outside of tow n, and oue alter another of the great ; milling plants i*nd reduction works are presented in faithful likeness. The pub- i iishers very likely could have amplified j aud in some respects improved the quality i of illustrations, but the importance of the j enterprise was probably less appreciated j there than in other places. The portraits of p.ominent citizens are, we should say. 1 <• At. .1 U In ni>n pretty good, as far as they go, and it is pre sumably not the fault of the magazine men that others are not there to render the gallery of notable heads more complete. The fact appears to be that the Northwest subscriptions in Helena exceed two or three times the amount raised in Butte, and the Capital City, in consequence, will probably receive from the publication more elabor ation and, with the advantage of her greatly superior architecture, much better illustration than awarded our sister me trojKilis. The technical "w-riting up" ol the Butte district has yet to be fully and satisfactorily performed. This undertaking, together with the liest illustration possible to obtain, could, we axe satisfied, be ac complished for four or five thousand dollars. Men of the enterprise of Daly and Clarke and Irvin and Warren and a dozen others could [easily bring that about. We think it worth their while to try. I) (Joed Price. it, July 21.—J. H.

Cleveland, July 21. —The Democratic State convention was called to order at 11 o'clock this morning, in Music Hall, by Henry Dohl, Chairman State Executive Committee. There was no temporary or ganization, and Hon. George E. Seney, of Tiffin, Ohio, at once took his place as per ] i ! j i 1 ! | ; j ' manent chairman. In his speech, Seney said there were no quarrels in the Demo : cratic party. Every Democrat seemed to know who would be his candidate in 1883, and all were satisfied [applause]. He eulogized ex-Senator Thurman,saying that he would have honored the office of Gover nor. After speaking of the various can didates for Governor, he said all was not harmony in the Republican party. Every tomahawk and scalping knife he declared was sharpened for I fight at,.Toledo next week. His reference to the presidential contest between Blaine and Sherman was applauded. Referring to Cleveland's ad ministration, he said that so well had its power been used that now it has little, if any, opposition except from those who ex pect favors from the Republican party. About civil service reform, he said: "While all Democrats give the administration their hearty support, there are maDv who would feel better satisfied if all the Republicans remaining in office were promptly turned ■ out aml tbeir P' a(es died with Democrats. It is to this feature of the situation that the resolves of this convention ought not to be uncertain in meaning or sound, if we believe that Democrats, instead of Repub licans, should assist a Democratic Fresi dent in administering our government. Let us have the courage of our convictions and here now so declare. If it be the civil service law that keeps Republicans in and Democrats out of the public service, let us strike boldly and high and demand our party representatives at Washington in the Senate and House to labor and vote for the immediate and un conditional repeal of the law. The committee on resolutions then re ported the platform. It declares: That the Democratic party of Ohio, in convention assembled, proclaims its hearty aud unqualified endorsement of the honest and patriotic and economical administra tion of President Cleveland ; that we de mand such judicious reduction of the pres ent burdensome tariff as shall result in producing a revenue sufficient only to meet the expenses of an economical administra tion of government, payment of liberal pensions to Union soldiers aud sailors, and payment of the interest and principal of the public debt ; and if necessary we favor such reduction of internal revenue, except on liquors, as will prevent the accumulation of a surplus in the national treasury; and we denounce any attempt to abolish the tax on liquors for the purpose of keeping up the present unjust, unequal, and oner ous tarilf. The platform also declares for legislation looking to the preservation of the public domain for actual settlers ; ex presses sympathy for the Irish; demands the restriction of power and the protection of honest labor; calls for legislative restric- j tion of emigration of those declaring their i intention of becoming citizens; forbidding j the use of contract labor, and demanding ! the speedy punishment of persons inciting riot aud revolution: against the Republican | State government; demanding a free and untrammeled ballot ; favoring local seli government ; declaring in favor of proper regulation of the liquor traffic; favoring the submission of an amendment to the constitution providing for the license ot such traffic. The platform was adopted without a dis seuting voice. Nominations for Governor were then called for, Congressman Jas. E. Campbell of Hamilton, Thomas E. Powell of Delaware, and Congressman Martin A. Foran of Cleve land, were named. Powell was nominated on the second ballot, and bis nomination was made unanimous. D. Coolman was nominated for Lieu tenant-Governor by acclamation. For Judges of Supreme Court—Long term, L. R. Critchfield; short term, \ igil 1*. Kline. Auditor of State—Emil Kieswatter. Treasurer of State—Geo. W. Harper, of Green county. Attorney General—Win. H. Leit, of Ot tawa county. Member of Board of Public Works— Peter J. Mnrpby, of Butler county. The convention at 3:10 p. m. adjourned nine die. Biographical Sketch ol Powell. Cincinnati, July 21. —Thomas Edward Powell, nominated for Governor to-day at Cleveland, is 43 years old. He is of Welch desceut. and was born at Delaware, Delaware county, Ohio. While a student at the Ohio Weslyan University in 1864 he enlisted in an Ohio regiment and served four months. Subsequently he graduated, and having studied law- with Col. W. Reed formed a partnership with him. His political career began in 1^72, when he made speeches for Greeley. In 1875 he was nominated for Attorney General and had the distinct ion of a defeat by a smaller majority than Governor Win. Allen. Con trary to his wishes, he w-as nominated for Congress in 1832, and though defeated by General James S. Robinson, he reduced the j Republican majority to 400. In 1884 he headed the Democratic electoral ticket, j and in 1885 lie served as chairman ot the | Democratic S;ate convention. During the | past four years he has had a law office in j Columbns. A Swindler Arrested. Chicago, July 21. — Horace G. Jacques, who several years ago at Poseyville, Ind., , burned his elevator, secured the insurance ; and (led without paying any of the farmers j from whom he had received grain, was ar- J rested here to-day. He has been doing business here on the open board of trade under the name of George Brown. The man made a full confession, and will be taken at once to Poseyville for trial. His crime there Detted him about $30,000, Upon leaving Indiana Jacques proceeded in L'bl nn Pnl nn/1 rtl'tnr zIaÎ rt it KlIfiinPQQ tnr to Chico, Cal., and after doing business lor some time went into bankruptcy. He was accidentally noticed on the board by a farmer from Poseyville, who quietly in formed the police. Jacques says his ele vator, although apparently bursting with grain on the night of the fire, contained only a few hundred bushels skillfully dis tributed over boards at the tops of the bins. Before setting fire to the establish ment he so fixed the doors that ingress was impossible. — ... » ♦--- Big Eire in Bullalo. Buffalo, July 21.—An extensive and disastrous fire broke out this afternoon, re sulting in the destruction of Ziegle's brewery. The fire also spread to the ex tensive car barns of the Buffalo street rail way on the opposite side of the street, and these were soon destroyed. A general alarm has been sonnded. There is $250, 000 insurance on the brewery buildings, which Will cover the loss. On the car barns the loss is estimated at $50,000, fully secured. INTERSTATE COMMERCE. Reasons of the Commission for missing Complaints, Dis. j j ; j | Washington, July 20.—The interstate commission to day dismissed the following cases: Chicago & Alton againt the Penn sylvania, the Rock Island against the New York Central, F. D. Harding against the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, and M. A. Fulton against the same, both for alleged discrimination in rates ! "Washington, July 20.—The cases of j the Alton and Rock Island roads, dismissed I are noted complaints. These companies j complained against the Pennsylvania and ! New York Central roads respectively for I discrimination on the boycott against the I complainants because of their refusal to ! subscribe to the agreement of the trunk | lines not to P a F commissions to ticket agents. This boycott consisted of the re fusal on the part of the defendants to sell through tickets over the complainants' roads from Chicago to Kansas City and St Louis. The decision of the commission says in part, after detailing the circum stances of the case at great length, that ofiences of which it has cognizance are anything done in contravention of the pro visions of the act to regulate commerce. The law in this instance does not require one railroad company to sell through tickets over the road of another company. In the absence of statutory authority one road can only sell tickets and check bag gage over auother by mutual agreement. It the companies cau agree upon this they have a right to do so aud by this agree ment become interstate carriers, but if they cannot agree the act does uot under take to coerce them. Assuming for the sake of argument that through tickets may be deemed "facilities'' for receiving, forwarding and delivering of passengers to connecting lines, carriers are oniy required to afford reasonable, proper and equal facil ities. This presents the question whether the payment of the commission is in itself, or is incidental to the enjoyment of the facil ity, reasonable and proper within the pur view of the statute. These commissions are gratuities to induce special efforts for the company paying them. If the statute does not give oue company authority to subsidize the agents of auother company, aud if the practice is injurious in its effects, it certainly canuot be reasonable and proper. The statute does not divest a rail road company of the exclusive right to control its own internal affairs, to employ its own agents and to regulate their duties, compensation, etc. With the legitimate exercise of these powers another company has no concern aud no right to intermeddle. The defendant companies have forbidden their agents to receive commissions from other companies, and directed them not to sell over the roads of companies that re fuse to recognize this corporate authority, but insist on subsidizing the agents. In these directions defendants have not trans cended their reasonable rights. They might rest upon these rights, but they go further j and show by evidence the practical effect i of commissions, and that their natural and j usual tendencies are to a variety of abuses, ! A practice capable of producing and having a tendency to produce such results cannot | be reasonable or proper, and the railroad j j j company is fully justified in the use of all lawful precautions to protect itself aud its agents against such an invasion of its cor porate authority and its business morality. The source < f complainants' position is clearly presented by the distinct assertion of the right of one corporation to employ and pay for its own interest an official servant of another corporation to which his services is primarily and exclusively due. A theory of this character ought not to be, and is not recognized in business affairs or in official life. The defendants' companies therefore have not contravened the pro visions ol the act. The complaints, by re fusal to refrain from payment of commis sions, voluntarily excluded themselves from the reasonable, proper and usual facilities offered to them in common with other connecting lines. The complainants are dis missed, all concurring except Commis sioner Morrison. Opiuion by Commissioner Schoonmaker. Commissioner Morrison, in bis dissenting opinion, takes a contrary view of the points mentioned above, and says, independent of the legality of any question of domestic policy between companies, the public is en titled to that reasonable and equal facility afforded those who seek the competing lines. It is no answer to the public de sirous of using railways as continuous lines that there are differences among com panies. The cases of Harding and Fulton against the Omaha road were dismissed, on the ground that the company has reduced the rates complained of since complaints were made. There is, therefore, no evi dence to show present rates excessive. EDITORS IN TROUBLE. A Tim el v Interference Prevents a Tragedy. El Paso, July 20. —The newspaper controversy here barely escaped resulting in a tragedy. The Times and Inter-Republic have been indulging in a personal warfare for some time past, which reached a climax on Sunday morning by the editor of the Times making the statement that the edi tors of its contemporary belonged in the penitentiary rather than in a newspaper office. The editors of the Inter Republic Geo. B. LoviDg and Orth H. Stein, at once went gunning for Jnan S. Hart, editor of the Times, who happened to be out of the city. Upon his return Monday he was welcomed by the Inter Republic in a lead ing editorial, calling him "a liar, poltroon and cur." This was more than Hart could stand, and arming himself with a shot gun, he started out with an employe of his named Wimberly, who was armed with a revolver, and whose mission it was to see that both LoviDg aud Stein did not attack Hart. Stein was met in the street near the stairway and Hart ordered him to throw up his hands. Instead of doiDg so he ran up the stairs. At this point an officer ap peared and arrested Stein, Hart and Wim betly and placed them under bonds to keep the peace for a year. During all this time Loving stood across the street and did not interfere. Stein was brought here about a year ago, charged with forging a check on the New York Sun. He lay in jail here until about May 1st, when he was released on bail awaiting trial. A requisition from the Governor of Mississsippi, where Stein is wanted on another charge of forgery, awaits the disposal of the case here. Stein killed a man in Kansas City a few years ago, and has a bad record in many locali ties in the West. He said last week that he had been employed by the New York Herald to visit Bavispe, Mexico, and inves tigate the earthquake results in that region. The Sharpe Case. New Yoke, July 22.—The argument to make permanent the stay of proceedings in the case of Jake Sharp, which was to have been heard to-day, was adjoorned until Tuesday. Bourke Cochrane has been retained by Sharpe to make the argument. j ■ ! I | ; ■ I ! I ! : BALTIMORE & OHIO DEAL. Explanatory Letter Irom President Ggrrett, Philadelphia, July 20.— The Reeotf will to-morrow publish the following: Elberon, N. J., July 20. To Hon. William M. Singerly, Editor Record, Philadelphia: j Dear Sir—I n reply to your courteous ■ inquiry as to the real status of negotiations, ! called by the press "The Baltimore & Ohio deal," I beg to say all snch negotiations are terminated. The syndicate which was to acquire the large block stock of the Balti more & Ohio Railroad Company in such a way as was believed would be beneficial to all parties and railroads concerned, did not at the appointed time comply with their engagements, and all arrangements or negotiations with them are now abso lutely at an end. I have not purchased the stock of the John Hopkins university, as stated in some newspapers. I had the option on that stock and also upon that of several other holders, but I have not exer cised these options, nor do I intend to do so. The statement in some of the papers that I have purchased large blocks of Bal timore & Ohio stock is a mistake. As I have stated, I had options, but circum stances rendered it necessary to close them. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company and its properties, including its large tele graph system aud ownership of its stock, remain now as they were at the opening of the negotiations. The widespread public interest which these negotiations excited, ami the many false and foolish rumors to which they have given rise, justify me in departing from my usual course, in making this formal statement ot their final ter mination. Thanking you for the kindly terms in which you have been pleased to refer to the Baltimore & Ohio Company and its future, and acknowledging the cor rectness of your judgment and that of the many other friends as to prosperity, in making public this letter, I am, as ever, yours verv trulv, (Signed) ROBERT C 1RRETT. New York, July 21.—The World to morrow will publish the following: Henry I S. Ives and George N. Stayner have sued Robert Garrett. Yesterday they com menced two actions in the Supreme Court of this State, and summons in each was served on Garrett last night at the Victoria Hotel. One action is for a specific perfor mance on the part of Garrett of a contract made between him and Henry S. Ives and George N. Stayner for a delivery to the last named at a fixed sum a controlling in terest in the stock of the Baltimore & Ohio Railway, which carries with it both tele graph and express companies. There are other suits for pec uniary damages for the breaking of this contract. This action on the part of Ives and Stayner was hastened on account of Garrett's contemplated de parture for Europe to-morrow. The complaint in the two suits will lie drawn and served as soon as possible. A gentleman who has been conversant with this matter from its iucepuoD, said last night to a World reporter: "I am told by those close to Mr. Garrett that he has received overtures direct from Jay Gould, ami that may be the explanation of his conduct in taking this step to freeze Ives out so that he can deal directly with the Gould party." When the World reporter called on Mr. Garrett at the Victoria Hotel and asked about the suits by Ives and Stayner, he declined to speak about the matter. New York, July 22. —The Tribune to morrow will say: Mr. Garrett spent a busy afternoon at the Victoria Hotel yes terday. He received a large pile of dis patches and letters and kept lour clerks hard at work. To a Tribune reporter, who saw him for a few minutes, he said : "I shall certainly go to Europe to morrow. I have nothing further to say about the Baltimore & Ohio deal beyond what has already been published. If anything of which I could talk had happened I would gladly give it to you." There is little doubt that the actions are first to recover the securities which Ives and his partner gave Mr. Garrett in the deal. They claim that since he repudiated the deal he should give back the securities. He claims that lie is entitled to them. The second action is for an injunction to pre vent him from disposing of any of his property until the first suit is settled, so if his opponents will they may, if needful, attach his property in the settlement. The conduct of his affairs, in liis absence, Mr. Garrett leaves entirely in the hands of his attorney. He will sail this morning at 7 o'clock accompanied by his wife. THE ALIEN ACT. English Interpretation ol the Lau. London, July 20. —A financial paper this evening publishes an interview with Law. of New York, counsellor at law, in which the latter Imparted a hitherto un published opinion of the alien act, given by Attorney General Garland to President Cleveland. This opinion is to the effect that the act does apply to mines or inherit | itable interests in real estate ; that aliens can lawfully hold stock in American cor porations owning mineral lands in the Ter ritories, provided such aliens may advance ; money with which to develop mines, but cannot obtain interest in real estate through ■ such advances; that they may lawfully I contract with American owners to work mines. Law' adds that in his own opinion aliens can dodge the act legally by putting ! their money in 99 year leases. Washington, July 22. —Referring to the cable dispach from Loudon in regard to Attorney General Garland's opinion on the alien act, it is stated that the opinion was given to the President some time ago. I The President had asked lor the opinion at the request of certain persons connected with mining operations, who were desirous of obtaining information. The opinion never chanced to be given for publication, although at do time was it regarded as a a secret. It was given to the Associated Press to night. The Attorney General in reply to the President considers the various sections of the act of March 3d, 1887, at ! great length. His conclusions are summed upas follows: First—As mines are not real estate, or : inhabitable real estate, the act does Dot apply to them. Second—Stock in a corporation is a per sonalty. An alien cau lawfully have, hold and own shares of stock issued by an American corporation which is now owner of mineral lands in any Territory, but if the holdings by aliens exceed twenty per cent, such corporation can neither acquire, hold or own nor hereafter acquire real es tate while twenty per cent, of the stock is held or owned by aliens. Third—Under the act the advancement of money hereafter by aliens for the pur pose of developing mining property is law ful, but no interest in real estate can be acquired by snch advancement, nor could an alien have real estât* or aDy interest therein on a loan made since the passage of the act even if sold on his own security or lien. Fourth—Aliens may lawfully contract with American owners to work mines by personal contracts for hire, or by liona fide leases for a reasonable time. , Lamar and Lamar. Macon, Ga, July 22.—The marriage of W. H. Lamar, of Washington, to Jennie L., daughter of Secretary Lamar, occurred at 8 o'clock last evening. Lincoln's Prayer. [Washington Hatchet.] The following touching story ot Lincoln was related to me by Col. Dayton, to whom , I am alreadj indebted for several excellent morceaus öf reminiscence : "Shortly after the battle of Gettysburg Gen. Sickles, badly wonnded, wa3 brought to Washington by some members of his stall' aDd was taken to the private house of a Mr. Dale, on F. street, opposite, or nearly opposite, the Ebbitt house. The brave hero of many a hard-won field was very Dear his last master. The morning after his arrival President Lincoln, with his boy Tad, was announced. He walked with solemn step into the room where the Gen eral lay, hardly gasping. We all thought he was dyiDg. Dr. Simms, was holding his pnlse. and as Mr. Lincoln approached the bedside with Tad he was much afi'ected. He raised his head to heaveD. while big drops of tears fell from his eyes, and offer ed up the most fervent prayer I ever heard. Not a dry eye was in that room ; all, even Tad, was sobbiDg. I cannot re member the exact words ol the prayer, but this portion will never be effaced from my memory : 'Oh, God, let me not lose all my friends in this war.' Mr. Lincoln was very fond of Gen. Sickles, and visited him almost every day, and sent ilowers of the choicest kind to his room daily from the White House conservatory." Will Books Disappear ! "Will the coming man read books ?" is the startling question that Henry Holt, one of the leading book publishers of the land, propounds in the June number of the Writer. He is led to it by reflection on the fact that there has been a remarkable fall ing off in the sale of bouud volumes in the past ten years. "In novels, poems, travels, essays, histories, biographies," he says, "the publishers find that they can, as a rule, place but about one-third as many copies of a new bound book as they could ten years ago." The query comes, if the sale diminishes one-third in ten years, how long will it take for extinction ? Surely here is food for most serious reflection. Was there ever such a sociological revolution in the history of the civilized world as this will be if it culminates in the disappear ance of the book ? For the book has been the chief factor in the history of the world's mind, the library hasibeen the mostjpotent element for good in the life of the home, and the book writer the most revered and most influential of mankind. If, as Mr. Holt believes, the change is largely due to the great development of newspapers and periodicals, then, indeed, is the revolution essential and complete. "Will the coming man read books?"

Catarrh in its destructive force statuts next to and undoubtedly leads on to consumption. It is therefore singular that those afflicted with this fearful disease should not make it the object of iheir lives to rid themselves of it. Deceptive remedies concocte! by ignorant pretenders to medical knowledge have weakened the confi dence of the great majority of sufferers in all ad vertised remedies. They become resigned to a life of misery rather than torture themselves with doubtful palliatives. But this will never do. Catarrh must lie met at every stage and combatted with all our might. In many cases the disease has assume«! danger ous symptoms. The lames and cartilage of the nose, the organs of hearing, of seeing and of tasting si affecte«! as to lie useless, the uvula so elongated, the throat so inflamed and irritated as to produce a constant and increasing cough. Sanford's Radical Ci re meets every phase of Catarrh, from a simple head cold to the most loathsome and destructix'e stages. It is local and constitutional.
