JOHN ALLEN’S YARN.
He Lies to an Old Veteran to See What He’d
Say.
"I went up to Chlckamauga with Judge
Newman and Col. Barbour Thompson,"
said Private John Allen to the Atlanta
Constitution. "I walked about the field
and heard hundreds of old fellows talk
ing about the spots on which they had
been wounded and telling all manner of
marvelous stories. I was at not Chlck
amauga, but 1 was in other battles, and
when a man tells you that he can turn
and pick out spots where all sorts of
things occurred in a battle this many
years afterwards you may put him down
as a liar.
"Well, everybody up (here was lying,
and I had to do a little myself.
"X was standing by the railroad station
at the fijot of one qt ttye hills when an
old veteran accosted me and asked if I
knew when the next train left for Home.
" 'No.' said I, 'this is the first tltpe I
have been here in thlrty-t\?o years, and,
my friend, when I stand here and look
upon this hill, recalling the charge I
made up It through a shower of shot and
shell, how I dashed my horse right
through a federal battery, leaping seven
different cannons arid emerged from a
shower of bullets unscathed, I wonder
that I am alive today.’
"As the old fellow listened to my story
his eyes filled with tears. He walked
up and, putting ills arm about me, said:
“ 'Young man, you were spared for
some great purpose.' ”—Exchange.

CONGRESSMAN UNDERWOOD’S
Request That the Public Library Be Made the
Depository for Public Documents Granted.
At the request of Congressman Under
wood the Birmingham Public library has
been designated a depository fur public
documents. It is the custom of the gov
ernment to furnish these documents free
to one library in each district, and a few
weeks ago Congressman Underwood
wrote the officials in Washington asking
that the public library of this school be
designated as such depository.
The response to the request came yes
terday morning stating that it had been
granted.
THE riUSCULAR SYSTEM
of every weary,
thin or thin blood
ed person does its
work with con
stant diffieultyand
fatigue. They feel
“worn,” or tired
out, “run-down"
or nervous.
Feeble people
who are dyspep
tic, find that ex
ercise after a meal
is sure to cause
lessened power to
digest food — be
cause there is so
little blood, and
what there is, is
carried off from
the gastric organs
to the muscles.
What is needed
is plenty of blood,
and that of the
right kind. Dr.
Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery makes
pure, rich blood, and to gain in blood is
nearly always to gain ill wholesome flesh lip
to tbe ileal thy standard.
Every one should have a certain surplus
of flesh to meet tile emergencies of sick
ness ; to resist the attack of consumption,
grip, malaria and fevers. Thin blooded
people are always getting sick, and none of
tbe organs of the body can get along with
out the food they require for work, which is,
pure blood. To gain and to keep strength
and flesh is the secret of health, usefulness
and happiness. With new blood and re
freshed nerves a confident feeling of return
ing health comes also.
Nervous manifestations, such as sleep
lessness, nervous debility and nervous
prostration are in nine cases out often “the
cry of the starved nerves for food." If you
feed the nerves on pure rich blood tbe
nervous symptoms will cease. It is bad
practice to put the nerves to sleep with so
called celery mixtures, coca compounds or
malt extracts ; what it needed is a blood
maker. The “ Discovery ” is composed of
vegetable ingredients which have an es
pecial effect upon the stomach, liver, and
blood making glands. For the cure of
dyspepsia, indigestion, liver complaint,
weakened vitality, and for puny, pale peo
ple, Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discov
ery cannot be equaled. Thousands have
testified to its merits,
