Disease is an effect; not a cause. Its origin
Is within; its manifestations without.
Hence to cure the disease the cause must
be removed, and in no other way can a
cure ever be effected. Warner’s 8AFF2
CURB Is established on just this principle.
It realizes that
05 PER CENT
of all diseases arise from deranged Kidneys
and Liver, and it strikes at once at the
root of the difficulty. The elements of
which It is composed act directly upon these
great organs, both as a food and restorer,
and, by placing them in a healthy condition,
drive disease and pain from the system.
For the innumerable troubles caused by
unhealthy Kidneys, Liver and Urinary Or
gans; for the distressing Disorders of
Women; for all Nervous Affections, and
physical derangements geijerally, this great
remedy has no equal, it# past record 1b a
guarantee of continued performance.

that It brought together the owners of

, FUN FQfi TONIGHT.
Denver Ed Smith Will Meet Three Local Fight
ers in a Glove Contest in the Wigwam.
Ten Rounds Each,
Tonight at the wigwam the lovers it
athletic sports will witness the best ex
hibition of the kind, perhaps, that has
ever been presented in Birmingham.
The chief feature of the evening will
be Denver Ed Smith’s glove contest with
Mike Quinlan, Jerry Slattery and Eu
gene McElroy.
Denver Ed will take these three, one
after the other, for ten rounds. Quinlan,
the ’’Stockyard Giant,” is a heavy
weight; Jerry Slattery is also a heavy
weight, and McElroy is a heavy middle
weight. Denver Ed’s opponents are clev
er with the gloves, but they have a high
regard for the big fellow’s mittens. The
men will enter the ring at 8:45. This will
not be a prize fight, but simply a heated
glove contest for points. Denver Ed is
expecting a go with Fitzsimmons, and
he has backers, it is said, who will wager
money in large amounts that Denver Ed
can whip the lanky Australian. Denver
Ed Is quite sure that he will get a match
with Fitzsimmons, now that the latter’s
match with Maher seems to be off. How
ever, in the event that he does not he
will fight Slavin at the Bolingbroke club
in London.
Of tonight's exhibition the walking
match between Dan O'Leary, the cham
pion of the world, and three local pedes
trians, will be highly interesting. The
walking match will be a curtain-raiser
for the contest. Doors will be open at
7:30. with general admission 5o cents.
Seats by the ringside will be $1 each.

L-jjistffljp1 You get through your cleaning in half
the time you used to, and without any

Pearline saves rubbing. That means a good deal besides
easy work, even in house-cleaning. Paint and wood-work
and oil-cloth, etc., are worn out by rubbing.
Pearline cleans, with the least labor, and without the
least harm, anything in the world that water doesn't hurt
Peddlers and some unscrupulous grocers will tell you ** this is as good as"

THE BEST OF ALL
In All Things All The Time
rilHRRE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
X 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.
