liarities of immigration to Huntsville

Opelika Evening News: Mr. Sher
wood H. Koyser of Atlanta was seriously
hurt, yesterday morning by falling from

attended.
Clarke County Herald: Rev. P. E. Klr
ven died in Texas two weeks ago. Twen
ty years ago he was one of the ablest

lives three miles w< st of Ozark, and who,
hy the way, is one of the best farmers in

100 bushels of cotton seed and several
hundred bundles of fodder, belonging to

Rheflield Iteaper: “Wednesday morn

Cullman Tribune: The barn on a farm
belonging to Mr. George Koberson and
occupied by the Widow Hhannon and son
was entirely destroyed by fire on Mon
day night, and with it were burned about
400 bushels of corn. It was at once
thought to be the work of some villain
who had set the building on fire, and In
response Deputy Vol Fuller took his dogs
to the scene and traced up and captured
a man, hut the evidence against him at
this writing is by no means conclusive.
He has since been released.
Kufaula Times: Yesterday there
passed through Kufa.wla a wheelman
from Port Barancas. Fla., en route to
Louisville, Ky. He was spying out a
route from the last named place to some
point in Florida, which route the Louis
ville Wheeling club were to take for a
winter's outing. The young man had
only been out from Barancas twenty
four hours when he reached Kufaula.
He was a wheel expert and enjoys the
sport.
A pathetic incident is reported from
Phentx City. Two aged ladies, Mrs.
Kmlly Hays, aged about 87 years, and
lier daughter. Miss Amanda, aged about
67 years, lived nlone in an humble cot
tage. Friday morning last the daughter
awoke to find her mother cold In death
by her side. The daughter became fran
tic with grief, and in a few minutes her
heart strings were snapped and she was
dead. The remains of the devoted twain
had one interment—together In death as
they had been In life. This and many
kindred Instances touch a tender, sym
pathetic chord In every heart that knows
the power of human love.
Selma Times: Mr. TV. W. Burns Is the
owner of a very handsome diamond scarf
pin. worth perhaps $600 or $800. He wore
it to the exposition the other day. but Is
no longer In possession of the diamond.
He hart It when he got to Montgomery,
hut In changing cars In that city some
light fingered gentleman relieved him of
his valuable pin. Mr. Burns did not find
it out until he was ten miles this side of
Montgomery, so he came on to Selma
and went back over there yesterday lo
see If he could get track of tlio thief.
Just ns the crowd was coming out of thd
car In Montgomery a fellow came meet
ing the crowd nnrt was squeezing his
way toward the back end of the oar. It
Is thought that he Is the fellow who got
the diamond: that he spotted Mr. Burns
In Atlanta and followed him until he got
to Montgomery and then get to his work.
People going to Atlanta cannot be too
careful with their Jewelry; In fact they
had better leave It at home than take it
with them and lose It.
The Ceremony Postponed.
Baltimore, Dec. 5.—The ceremony of
the investure of Monslgnor Francis Sa
tolll, the apostolic delegate In America,
with the Insignia of the cardinalate,
which had been fixed to take place at the
cathedral In this city on Sunday, the
15th Instant, has been postponed to a
date which will probably be made
known tomorrow. *
The postponement was made necessary
by the fact that Marquis Sacripantl of
the pope's household, bearing the beretta
and the official briefs, only sailed today
from Genoa on the steamship Fulda. The
steamer is not due in New York until the
16th, and may even be delayed beyond
that date.
Cardinal Gibbons today received a ca
ble dispatch from Cardinal Lederochow
skl, perfect of the propoganda at Rome,
announcing that the pope had confirmed
the appointment of Father W. H. O'Con
nell of Boston as rector of the America
college at Rome. Father O’Connell has
been the vicar-general of the Boston
archdiocese for several years.
Secretary Carlisle has spoken aright.
There must be no quibbling and no
straddling In next year's platform. Line
up, gentlemen, and let us see where you
are at.—Augusta Chronicle, Dem.
OPINIONS OF THE.PRESS.
The administration has sold $165,000,000
in bonds and has only about $81,000,000
to show for It.—Atlanta Constitution.
Den*
Everything seems to be going his way.
Even the English sparrows are now serv
ed as Reed birds.—Cincinnati Times
Star, Rep.
Senator Allison says he wants the pres
idential nomination, but will not “scram
ble for it." We would, however, whisper
ever so gently Into Mr. Allison’s off ear
that if he ever gets it he will have to
scramble for It, and scramble like the
very dickens, at (hat.—Los Angeles
Times.
Carlisle's peddling scheme to replenish
the gold reserve is not working very well.
If It did public attention would be at
tracted to the fact that the cost to the
government for expressage In all prob
ability represents a greater loss to the
country than would result if gold went
to a minimum.—San Francisco Chron
icle, Rep.
General Alger is getting but small sym
pathy from the papene for Sherman's
very uncomplimentary reference to him
in connection with the convention of 1888.
Alger would never have been conspicu
ous there save for his "barrel,” and the
people with “barrels" must drown their
sorrow In them or a bowl when they
meet defeat.—Salt Lake Herald.
Who said the McKinley boom had stop
ped booming? He Is evidently not a con
stant reader of our esteemed contempo
rary, the Wisconsin State Journal, which
announces that “a large majority of the
members of the county board of super
visors of Rock county favor McKinley
for president.” Where now is the scof
fer?—Louisville Courier-Journal, Dem.
It Is said that the pooling of steerage
rates by the Atlantic steamship compa
nies renders probable an attempted poo!
of the entire business of the leading
ocean lines. When this method Is ap
plied in both land and ocean traffic, and
when leading lines of manufacturing are
so controlled as to make trade virtually
subject to a few dozen men, what will
be the result politically and industrially?
Will the people continue to be Intimi
dated by the threat of the dire conse
quences of "business disturbance” Inci
dent to an effectual enforcement of
honest anti-monopoly laws? Is monopo
ly really to be king?—New York World,
Dem.
The statement that Austin Corbin of
New York Is at the head of a scheme for
bringing over immigrants from Italy by
the thousand and colonizing them In
Arkansas is rather astonishing. If there
is anything that the United States does
not need it is immigration from Italy or
anywhere else. This country has all the
people It can take care of now, and a
good many more than it is able to pro
vide with suitable employment. Coloni
zation schemes are all right if they art
properly managed, but there is no need
to look to Europe to find material for
them. If Austin Corbin has a fancy for
Italians he could find them by the ship
load right In New York.—San Francisco
Examiner, Dem.
The republican party of Alabama,nine
tenths of whom are negroes, have cap
tured the populists bodily. A prediction
was made by many some time ago that
this would be the outcome of the Jeffer
sonian democratic and populite move
ment. At the meeting In Birmingham
about ten days ago It was decided that
they would fuse with the republican par
ty, the worst enemy the south ever had.
Captain Kolb protested vigorously
against this, using all the Influence that
he could command through the columns
of the People’s Tribune, but with such
men as Bowman, Crow et al. in the sad
dle he was outdone. How would Thomas
Jefferson feel over such a sight by so
called boasted followers? The meeting
was a populite, Jeffersonian, Kolbite.
all of whom were boasted democrats sev
eral years ago.—Evergreen Reporter.
According to those who hold that for
eign trade Is a calamity -we are being
ruined by our trade with England. It Is
said that we have a "balance of trade
against us.” The most interesting fact in
this connection, however, is that Eng
land maintains a so-called “adverse trade
balance" as a. permanent feature of Its
prosperity. During the ten months end
ing November 1 English imports exceed
ed exports by $513,000,001), and for the same
period last year by $554,000,000. If these
figures represent net loss instead of net
gain, how do home market mathemati
cians account for the fact that England
Is the wealthiest and most prosperous
country in Europe, w’ith a constantly in
creasing surplus for Investment In Amer
ica?—New York World.
The lines between bimetallists and
those intent upon fastening the appreci
ating gold standard upon the country,
with Its resulting era of still lower prices
and further trade depression, must at
once be drawn. A demand on the part
of Mr. Cleveland for authority to issue
bonds specifically payable In gold, In
place of the bonds payable In coin that
he has heretofore issued and sold for gold
in a vain effort to maintain the gold re
serve, must at once precipitate the strug
gle, and that Mr. Cleveland will make
such recommendation the rapid depletion
of the gold reserve for the fourlh time
since his inauguration, and a probability
of a fourth issue of bonds to obtain gold
in order to restore the gold reserve,
makes almost certain.—Philadelphia
A merman.
A Gentle Corrective
is what you need when your
liver becomes inactive. It's
what you get when you take
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets;
they're free from the violence
f. and the griping that
|^S come with the ordinary
I N. pill. The best medical
i Tv \ authorities agree that
" /j J in regulating the bowels
It / mild methods are pref
ix erable. For every de
T rangement of the liver,
stomach and bowels,
M these tiny, sugar coated
IS pills are most effective.
Hf They go about their
■ work In an easy and
E; natural way, and their
^B good lasts. Once used,
H they are always in fa
H vor. Being composed
Ig of the choicest, concern
trated vegetable e*
tracts, they cost much
more than other pills
wf found in the market,
j B yet from forty to forty.
| B four are put up in each
sold through druggists, at the price of the
cheaper made piHs.
“ Pleasant Pellets ” cure biliousness, sick
and bilious headache, dizziness, costive
ness, or constipation, sour stomach, loss of
appetite, coated tongue, indigestion, or dys
pepsia, windy belchiugs, “heartburn,”
pain and distress after eating, and kindred
derangements of the liver, stomach and
bowels. Put up in sealed glass vials, there
fore always fresh and reliable. Whether
as a laxative, or in larger doses, as a gently
acting but searching cathartic, these little
“Pellets"are tmeqtialed.
As a “ dinner pill," to promote digestion,
take one each day after dinner. To relieve
the distress arising from over-eating, noth
ing equals one of these little “Pellets.”
They are tiny, sugar-coated, anti-bilious
granules. Any child readily takes] them.
Accept no substitute that may be recom
mended to be "just as good.” It may be
better for the dealer, because of paying
him a better profit, but he is not the oue
who needs help.

Paine’s Celery Compound.
Women preachers, as well as women
lawyers, women voters, women bicyclists
and women in business, are making it
more and more apparent that ,,the gen
tler sex’* is not necessarily "the weaker
sex." morally, mentally or physically.
Rev. Mrs. Lydia Collman Is an example
of the womanly woman whose influence
for good in the community is on a par
with that of the manly man.
She is not one of that silly class of per
sons who, broken down in health by
mental or bodily strain, not quite sick
enough to be abed, put off thinking seri
ously of getting well.
Improperly nourished nerves and poor
blood soon pile up a desperate number
of disorders.
On the other hand, when reduced health
and spirits are early recognized and cour
ageously taken In hand at once, when
Paine's celery compound is used to re
store the integrity of the nerves and
blood, no further trouble Is to be feared.
Paine's celery compound at once cor
rects any unhealthy condition of the
nervous system. It forwards the richest
possible elements of growth to every
nerve cell and the remotest nerve thread
thoughout the body.
Paine's celery compound positively and
permanently cures every form of nervous
debility and exhaustion—melancholia,
hysteria, headaches, dyspepsia, neuralgia
and disordered heart, and liver.
The great number of enthusiastic, un
studied testimonials from men and wom
en living in widely separated states is
one of the best evidences of how Paine’s
celery compound is regarded all over the
country.
Woman’s peculiar life brings a languor
and listlessness that are best met by
Paine’s celery compound. The dispirited
condition, the backaches, the neuralgia
headaches, the sleeplessness and nervous
debility that so frequently attack women
when their blood is robbed of its vitality
is soon dispelled when Paine's celery
compound is used.
Mrs. Collman, writing October 30 from
her home, 157 Scott street, Wilkesbarre,
Penn., says:
"Fully appreciating the benefits from
the use of Paine’s celery compound I
recommend it to others. Suffering from
sleeplessness and nervous debility, I was
persuaded to use this truly greatest of
remedies. Although T can have every
medicine from my brothers, the drug
gists here. I gave Paine's celery com
pound a trial, and must confess only to
my benefit. My only boy. 4 years old,
was also treated with It, r,nd his nerv
ousness has disappeared. My father,
Jtev. C. Kuehn, with who/i I live, thinks
a great deal of Paine’s c/lery compound.
I shall always keep it In the house."
There are untold nu/nbers of women
who are working and worrying enough
to drive them into their graves If Paine's
celery compound were not always In
their homes to strengthen and restore
their brains and nerves when there was
great need of it.

THE BEST OF ALL
In All Things All The Time
THERE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be one BEST. THE BEST is THE
EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies; 3, for statement of death claims paid-in
1894. Then you will know the three great reasons of The
Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.
