Lamar people are experiencing a sort
desolate feeling. With no trains run-
Oing, and the bridge out over the river,
Vie town seems quite doserted. The
Aidual number of farmers and teams
missing from the streets and the usual
etlr made by them, serve to make the
days rather dull.

D. W. Applegate returned Monday

Sells A Downs circus was here last
Friday and gave one exhibition in the
afternoon. There was a good crowd
present and a fine show was given, al
though not nearly all the features of the
show. The weather was so threatening
that not over half of the stuff was put
on exhibition and the circus perform
ance was curtailed. Every one was sat
isfied however, and bad the worth of
their money. The after coucert was un
usually rank and was pure fake. The
circus got out of town that night, which
WB9 lucky for them and for the town,
too, as a big crowd like the circus out
fit would have been a hard proposition
to have around for a week.

The Stomach is the Man
A weak stomach weakens the man,
because it cannot transform the food he
eats into nourishment. Health and
strength cannot be restored to any sick
man or weak woman without first re
storing health and strengh to the stom
nch. A weak stomach cannot digest
enough food to feed the tissues and re
vive the tired and run down limbs and
organs of the body. Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure digests what you eat, cleanses and
strengthens the glands and membranes
of the stomach, and cures indigestion,
dyspepsia and all stomach troubles.

Healthy Mothers
Mothers should ulwayH keep in good
bodily health. They owe it to their
children. Yet it is no unusal sight to
see a mother, with babe in urniß, cough

symptoms of a consumptive leudency.
Aud why should this duugerous condi
tion exist, dangerous alike to mother
aud child, when Dr. Boscheu’s German
Syrup would put a stop to it at once?
No mother should be without this old
and tried remedy in the house for its
timely use will promptly cure any lung,
throat or bronchial trouble iu herself or
children. The worst cough or cold can
be speedily cured by German Syrup; bo
can hourseness and congestion of the
bronchial tubes. It makes expectora

ed the cords in my leg to contract and
an abscess to rise on my knee, and the
doctor told me that I would have a stiff

He recommended a bottle of Snow Lini
