Conspicuous among the highest ex
amples ot success which the present cen
tury can show is Hostetter'a Stomach
Bitters. The record of its triumphs over
disease is to be traced in the written ac
knowledgments ot thousands who have
experienced its beneficent eflects, and
the evidence of Its popularity is to be
tound in the vast and arrowing demand
for the article In North and South Amer
ico, Mexico, Guatemala, the West Indies,
Australia and Europe. The reasons lor
its unparalleled success are cogent ones.
The accumulated evidence of nearly
thirty years shows that it U a certain
remedy (or malarial disease, as well as
its surest preventive ; that it eradicates
dyspepsia, constipation, liver eons plaint
and nervousness, counteracts a tendency
to gout, rheumatism, urinary and uter
ine disorders, that it imparts vigor to the

Hunting she Old Maa'i Honey.
Mr. Mowery, the administrator of the
estate of the late Dr. Augustine, ot Ha
zlewood in this county, is having consid -erable
trouble in getting together the old
doctor's wealth. Long before the old
man's death It was known that he had
amassed a snug little fortune, the great
suite ot it being In hard money gold and
silver. He was a strange man, and had
little faith in banks, believing that he
could take better care ot his money than
to deposit it in bank. While
he would not allow his money
to go out ot his hands,
he was In constant fear of thieves and
burglars, and to guard against the possi
bility ot being robbed, resorted to bury
ing his money. Some two or three
months ago the old man sickened and
died, but before his death never intimated
where the money would be found. Alter
he was laid away, the work of searching
or me money uegun and in the course of a
few weeks about $2,800 was found some
ot it In one place and some in an
other about the barn. The greater por
tion of this amount was In greenbacks;
but the gold and silver was still missing
The search has keen kept up ever since
and every few days small sums ate being
unearthed. A few days ago in digging
about the roots of an old tree standing
near the house a small tin can was dug
up and found to contain about one hun
dred dollars in silver. This can had evi
dently been burl.-d for many years as
