It is hard to look upon cough as a friend. Cough is associated with sleepless nights and wasting disease; yet cough Is friendly. It warns us of trouble. Cough stands guard at the breath pipe. It is a sentinel always awake. Stopping a cough too quickly is wrong1 and does barm. Quick cough medicines are dangerous. When cough appears it is the condition that must be cured and the cough stops. Lulling the sensitiveness of the nerves lets the discharges of a cold into the lungs. Pe-ru-na cures the condition and the cough ceases. Pe-ru-na operates directly to heal the congested mem branes and assist nature. Dr. Ilartman's treatment of throat and lung diseases lias made him famous, Ills un varying success is due to his great prescription, Pe-ru-na, which may be secured of any druggist. Write to the Pe-ru-na Medicine Co., Columbus, O., for Dr. Ilartman's book called Chronic Catarrh. It is mailed free, and con tains a full explanation of cough and all diseases of the mucous membrane. The battle is half won when these things are understood, and Dr. Ilartman's book is clear and practical. Mr. W. T. Powell, Clarington, O., editor and publisher "Independent," Writes the following letter: Dr. S. B. Hartman, Columbus, O. 1 was taken sick last February with bronchitis and catarrhal fever. My head was in a terrible condition could neither see nor hear scarcely and my lungs were badly affected, being so tight and sore 1 could hardly breathe. I coughed almost constantly. For two months I tried our local physicians, all the cough medicines I could get hold of, and many other remedies which were recommended to me. Finally I concluded to try Pe-ru-na. I had not taken , half a bottle until I began to improve. My lungs were relieved of their sore ness and tightness and my cough stopped entirely. I used three bottles of it and was entirely cured, and feel better than I have for years. W. T. Powell. . There is probably no remedy so safe for la grippe or so certain to cure it as . Pe-ru-na. Neither is there anything mysterious about the way it goes to work. , Pe-ru-na contains no narcotic or nervine of any kind. It is entirely vegetable. It cures cough by curing the membranes. The same process cures catarrh permanently. Catarrh may exist in any organ of the body. Thousands of ; letters are on file from people Pe-ru-na has cured.

Senator Lewelling has served as governor, Senator Johnson as bank com missioner and Senators Householder and Jumper as members of the board of charities. Senator Campbell is an ex probate judge and Senator Ward is an ex-sheriff. Senator Stone of Leavenworth is a handy man in the matter of railroad legislation. He has had some experience and it has cost him something. He sold enough of his farm in Leavenworth county to the L. T. and S. W., a condi tion being that the road should be oper ated. When the road quit business, he brought suit to recover his land. He has fought the case through all available courts and finally lost on account of de fective service at some point in the liti gation. In this long fight he has gained some information relative to railroads and their business which will be of value in his legislative work. He was on the caucus committee to draft a railroad bill and occupies a good place on the Senate railroad committee. Representative Lewis of Rawlins county did not answer to roll-call until When the Senate opened Senator Hanna found a very pretty bouquet on his desk. It bore a card indicating that friends at home had remembered him.

When he ar- and rates under the control of the rail I rived he found a telegram announcing that it contained anything of Importance had delayed sending it to him. Lewis Is ready and anxious to vote for a good railroad bill and can be depended on not only to do so but to vote for other bene ficial legislation. In the Senate the rules of the caucus to nominate officers and employees pro vide that no Senator may nominate more than one candidate who may be elected. This forces each Senator to care for hla own district first and It is invariably cared for. Candidates from districts which failed to elect Senators, who would sit in the caucus, are practically barred from even receiving consideration, and no matter how hard candidates from such districts may have worked or how deserving they may be they get scant consideration if they receive any at all. The Bystem is unfair and wrong. Conditions may arise which will put Senator Forney in an embarrassing posi tion. Some weeks ago he advertised a public sale of stock of which he is an extensive raiser. The date fixed was De cember 28. It costs some money to prop erly advertise and arrange for such sale and it would be disadvantageous to postpone and It would have caused as much expense to fix a new date. It la always unprofitable for the owner to be away on such an occasion and It takes several days to complete all of the de tails. The vote on the railroad bill may be taken during the time he might bo away. It is safe though to say that Sen ator Forney will be in his seat when that vote is taken. No matter what the personal cast may be he will be in his place serving his constituents' Interests when the railroad bill Is presented. The De Kalb Fence Co., of De Kalb, Illinois, who are old advertisers la these columns and who are well known to our readers as manufacturers of woven wire fencing, have just notified us of a new departure in their business. Foreseeing the necessity of a better grade of poultry fencing, yet cheaper to the user, they have placed upon the mar ket the M. M. S. poultry fence. The su perior point of this fencing, we are in formed, is that it is a true fence and not a netting; this means that while the fence is completely interwoven it has continuous lateral wires which are In terspersed at intervals with twisted cables running the entire length of the fence. The advantage of this arrange ment is obvious, as it admits of the complete and thorough stretching of the fence. It does away entirely with the top and bottom rail required by the oil style netting and requires but half the number of posts. If you are thinking about using any poultry fence write thesa people for circulars and prices.
