(From the Courier-Herald, Saginaw, llloh.)
It was publicly talked all over Clara
County for some time before the Courier-Herald
lent a reporter to- Dover to
Investigate the Coulter matter, lie
finally went, and we publish to-day his
report. The Coulters are prominent
people, though Mrs. C. In response to
the question whether she objected to be
ing interviewed, said, "Certainly not"
Her story follows: About 14 years agro
we decided to take up our abode In
Dover and everything went along
smoothly for seven years, business
progressed and belns of a saving tem
perament we accumulated quite an
amount. Our family Increased as the
years rolled by and we now have 5
children, but sickness made Its way Into
our household, and doctors Dins nuouea
upon us, until we have nothing left but
our home and our children. Everything
went to satisfy the claims of physicians.
"About three years ago I had a miser
able feeling at the back of my ears, my
right hand became paralyzed and the
paralysis extended to my arm and
throat, and would affect my head and
eyes. Sometimes for days I would lose
my sight, my face was deformed, life
less as It were, my nose was drawn to
one side and I presented a pitiable ap
pearance and never expecting to regain
my natural facial expressions. I em
ployed the best physicians that could be
procured, expending thousands of dol
lars for their services, but could not ob
tain relief. At last, they stated my
case was beyond the reach of medical
skill and It would be but a short time
until the end would come. In con
nection with receiving the attendance
of physicians I have tried every medi
cine known to the apothecary but
never received any relief until Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills came to my .as
sistance. Before I had taken half of
the first box the deformity in my face
had left me, and before four boxes had
been consumed the paralysis had disap
peared entirely and much to my sur
prise I felt like a new woman. I have
not taken any medicine since last spring
Just about a year ago and my trouble
has not appeared since. I owe my
health, my life to Dr. Williams' Pink
"A short time since my little boy John
was afflicted with St. Vitus' dance. He
could not walk across the room without
assistance, in fact he would fall all over
himself, but after taking a few boxes of
Pink Pills. St. Vitus' dance entirely left
him, and no trace of It Is left. These
Pills are worth their weight In gold.
You may say In this connecMon that I
am willing at any time to make affidavit
to the truth of these statements, and
furthermore I will answer any commu
nication concerning my case.
Pink Pills contain all the elements
necessary to give new life and richness
to the blood and restore shattered
nerves. They are for sale by all drug
gists, or may be had by mail from Dr.

Galvanized Steel Wire Fencing,
The most extensive and complete
plant for the manufacture of wire fenc
ing In the United States Is the De Kalb
Fence Company, located at De Kalb,
111. For years prior to 1890 barbed
wire was extensively used for
fencing, but those using It often lost In
fine stock, more than Its cost and to
avoid danger to man or beast there was
need of, and a demand for, a barblcis
The proprietors of this company
having spent more than 12 years In the
manufacture of wire fencing, recog
nized this fact, and have produced the
best lines of smooth wire fencing for all
purposes now in use. The success of
this company Is due to the managers
adopting the true business principle of
making good what they make, putting
enough material in their lines to make
them both strong and serviceable, In
stead of producing a cheap flimsy ar
ticle only to meet the price of a fence
that has never given satisfaction. This
Is what has made their fence so popular
and In such great demand and to-day.
they have over 40 special machines,
with a capac'ty of over 22 miles of
fence per day, and their fencing is used
In every state in the Union. The fence
most used is their Cable Steel and Hog
Fence for field fencing, Cable Poultry
Fence, Steel Web Picket Fence, and
Park and Cemetery Fence, and to com
plete same they also make gates of wood
' or steel frames to match, and also fur
nish Iron posts. All of their styles of
fencing are strong, neat, durable and
economical In price.
And everyone needing fencing of any
kind will consult their own Interests by

As may be seen in the picture, part
of the panel on the right hand side of
the wagon is cut through and works
outward from the lower end on hinges.
When this is on a level with the floor
of the wagon it ia held firmly In posi

platform from which the preacher may
address the assembled throng. On the
opposite side of the wagon is another
opening in the panel. When this is In

four steps by which one may ascend
and enter this fln de siecle chariot of

that in fair weather it may be removed.

This interesting traveling church
has no pastor, but it makes up for this
deficiency In the number of its congre

charge of the services from day to day,
each one going in a different section

regular charges some deacon officiates,

Those neighborhoods in which live the
classes considered mostly in need of

scheduled time. There ia a great in

ally last about half an hour.
Although the Gospel wagon and its
occupants have gone among the very
roughest classes in Washington they
have been treated with respect even by
those from whom they had reason to
expect ridicule, if not violence, and
many persons ordinarily indifferent to
religious services became actually in

conversions have been made. The
builders of the wagon have orders from

The Policeman Would Have No Man
Flourishing a Pistol There.
The boys are telling a rather good
story on a Fargo citizen and police
officer, which runs something In this
wise, says Fargo Forum: The citizen
had purchased a candy revolver for his
little boy, which closely resembled a
genuine weapon. Last night he was in
the ladies' waiting room at the North
ern Pacific awaiting the arrival of No.
2, smoking a cigarette. It's against
the rules to smoke in this room, and
when the officer stepped in he detected
the smell of smoke, and after sizing up
the crowd, finally .located the citizen
calmly smoking away.
"Here," said the officer, "if you want
to smoke you will have to go outside."
"Don't you talk to me that way," re
plied the cigarette smoker, "or I'll blow
you full of holes." As he said this he
drew the candy weapon from hia pock
et and leveled it at the officer. The
crowd at least took no chances. Con
vinced there was going to be a shoot
ing and that a "copper" or somebody
was going to be killed, there was a
unanimous desire among the bystand
ers not to witness the slaughter of the
devoted guardian of the peace. Every
one made an attempt at the same time
to reach the door. Several might have
been injured if the prompt action of the
police officer had not prevented the
panic that seemed Imminent. He seized
the citizen's right arm and pushed
it up and back so that if the candy
revolver was discharged it would be In
the air. Then he shouted: "You ara
under arrest!" and led him out into the
hallway, which was soon crowded. The
citizen still held the candy revolver,
which looked formidable enough In the
dim light He seemed to have lost his
bold front and was trembling with
fear. In faltering tones he said: "Don't
put me under arrest. I would rather
eat this revolver than be locked up In,
a police cell."
"Well," said the officer, half in Jest,
"you eat that revolver and I'll let you
"All right," he returned, and to the
amazement of every one, including the
officer, he put the barrel into his mouth'
WAGON, WASHINGTON, D. C.
and bit off a large section. Before the
crowd recovered from its surprise the
trigger had disappeared from view, and
by the time the officer had discovered
that he had been the victim of a joke
the revolver had been eaten.
