AW wish lo caution all users of Simmons T.iv. r Regulator on a subject of the deepest ami miorUmco to their health jerhi their lives. The sole proprietors -nit m ikers of Simmons Liver Regulator I irn UmI fiutomcra are often deceived by buy m.; a iJ Uking some medicine of a nimi'ar apjwantnce or taste, believing it to 1 e riiramiitii Liver Regulator. We warn vou that unless the word Regulator is on i package or bottle, that it is not Simmons Liver Regulator. No one else makes, or ever h made Simmons Liver Regulator, or anything c tiled Simmons Liver Regulator, bulJ. H eihn&Co., and no medicine made by anyone f.se is the same. ,.We alone can put it up and we cannot be responsible, if other medicines represented as the same do not heln vou as you are led to expect they will Bear this fact well in mind, if you have been in the habit of nsmg a medicine which you supposed to be Simmons Liver Regulator, because the name was somewhat like it and the package did not have the word Regulator on it, you have been imposed upon and have not been taking Simmons Liver Regulator at all. The Regulator has len favorably known for many years, and all who use it know how necessary it is for Fever and Ague Bilious Fever, Constipation, Headache Dyspepsia, and all disorder arising from a Diseased Liver. We ask you to look for yourselves, and see that Simmons Liver Regulator, which you can readily distinguish by the Red Z on wrapper, and by our name, is the only medicine called Simmons Liver Regulator.

Their Condition In the Most Eighty Protected Disiricls Pitiable. PROSPERITY HAS FAILED. So black and bitter is the spreading misery in Ohio that native-born mechanics are uctunlly leiivinf tbeir own soil to seek for u chance to earn bread in England. - Tliis is the most terrible and impressive thing yet seen in the industrial and coniinerci.il gloom which deepens everv day, and gomt of these poor fellows have been driven from their Iiltle homes in this country in which Mark Uaiinn has riFen to wealth and supreme politiisil power. Listen to this: I Mrollnl this morning :icnn the bridge that leads from tho noisy centre of Cleveland toward Mr. Hanna's prince ly home on the shore of the treat lake. Inky clouds of smoke whirled up against the sunlit sky. The glancing uiurk of the river ;ir beneath inc. I was halted by 0110 of the local Ialr leaders who introduced uic to a Bturdy, voting man, who carried :i black-glassed .ihse. lie was an engineer. I never saw a better face, a stronger nofe or chin, a I en re r eye. "I'm ofr for England," he said, '-I can't get woik in Ohio, and I don't wunt to give up my trade or be a tramp. Walk along with me, for I can't stand henor I'll niisrt my train." We t nidged across the rumbling lnidire in silence for a few moments. I glanced at the exile out of the tail of my eye and. saw that bis eyelids were red. He had just taken leave of hii brother. "It's tough," he slid. I don't know a soul in England." "Wliy don't you hanv: on here for a while?" 1 suggested. "The new tarilT hill will become a law by September at the latest and there may be some improvement in tho conditions. It is a mihtake to leave your own country for a country densely )opulatcd. Her conditions are unfavorable for io,r meir" "The tariff." hj said, bitteily "What w ill the tarilT do for me in September or December or any other month? It will make clothes dearer and sugar dealer and everything 1 use dearer. 1 low will I be helped ny that? The fact is 1 can't uet a j'lh in Ohio. The shops are closing down everywhere or running on short time. 'J he Linnets are all mined. It will be wonc neit year. Wnsrisare going down. If I can't get a job in my country I must go to tome other country. . Democrat? No. I'm a Republican. I voted for McKinley, and I'm not sorry for it either. I think he is a ood man. I don't know what is the matter with the lountry. All 1 know is prosperity has not come, ami is not going to come for" a long time." ' And so after that touching incident I took the tiouble to follow it up, and learned that a great many engineers aud I other mechanics have been leaving Cleveland to seek for employment in England. The local lalmr unions l.avo received reports on the subject. Some of llitt men have asked for cards to the labor unions, is mere a thoughtful manor woman in the United Slates who can read these facts without emotion? KACTOitnsi ntN without any rroiTr. No one can blame tl.e manufacturers for cutting down wages or closing their shotd. for most of the factories in Ohio are being run practically without profit at this moment. It is not because of any foreign competion, but simply because the fanners and tiie toilers in towns and cities are too poor to buy. It is an absolute fact that the amount of hotinc rent new overdue in this Stnte alone amounts to several millions of dollars. Ho where I w ill in Cincinnati, in Columbus, in Cleveland, iu Toledo, in Dayton, in Sandusky, in Canton the real estate Tncu and all tell the same story that tboy cannot collect their rents and I have seen lists of at least a thousand persons who are six, seven or eight months behind iu their payments. As I have alieady shown iu a previous dispatch, the foreclosure of mortgages, assignments and other records of failure for the present year in Ohio aggregate more than $50,000,000. This is the prosperity that has cqiuc through the great garden State of the "Union iu this year of Kepublicau rule I AVhy, even the employes of Cowell & Hubbard, the Cleveland manufacturing jewelers, who went to Canton with yellow hats to hear MeKniley's promises' last fall, are to have their wages cut dowu 10 per cent., aud these very men have been asked to lake about for signature a petition ask ing for the election of Mr. Hanua to Senato at tho next session of the Legislature! There is a ghastly humor in it all. The Standard Oil Compauy, -which has just closed its plaut here, aud W. L. DOUGLAS BK2hl U"Jb JT'W v eHI Merchants, 1 tinkers, Lawyers, I'liysiclans ana all economical men wear W. L. Doti.lt Shoe because tboy axe tbe best. For salerby SSK&lffl! Freeman " Br'otHers,. Richmond, Rys ' J - .. . " thrown a thousand men out of employment tooktlie.ni to Canton with .gulden caps in those bright dayB when votes wens wanted The great Cleveland Kolling Mills have cut down thesrsgts of men working by the ton from 'JO to 45 percent, wiihin tho past ten days. The leaders of organized lalwr and I have talked to men of all parties s-iy that theroare more than 13,000 men out of employment in Cleveland to-day not counting raw laborers. More than one-half of the bench now average not more than S7 a week. The American wire works tried to get its men to accept a reduction in wages, hud, failing in that, work them on short time. There are three men for every job on the docks. The large bi cycle factories have almost supeuded oixirations. Three q of the bicycle mechaiucs are out of work or have had to take odd jobs at other things. The Urooks Iron Works are paying men ninety cents per day for putting up street signs. Machinists arc laid off every day. Not more than one third have steady emplov meiit. So the awful story goes throughout Ohio. At the mouths of the rich coal mines men are actually starving. The men in many parts of the State do not average more than one day's work a week. Whole families are living on 50 cents a week. Women ami children who were Hying decent iu other times are going barefooted. At Canal Dover, You ngstown, Warren, Canton, ami similar cities and fwns the factories art entirely closed, or oen only part of the time. The great operators in Wall street may force stocks up or down, but they cannot change these Listen to this if you want to know w hat part a trust can play in this game of life aud death, if you want to see Hie foot of law less corporate power on the bread tray of the poor: The tin plate makers along the Ohio river irgion recently asked for higher wages. The factory owners then a higher tariff on tin plate. But an advance in the price of tin plate was not in harmony with the Standard Oil Company, which ships a large part of its product abroad in cans. Mr President of the Standard Oil Company, threatened iu the event of a larger duty on tin plate, to establish tin plate mills of his own, and drive the other men out of the field. The plate inakeis I mean the actual workers in the factories agreed with the plans of their employers, held meetings and declared for a high tariff on tin plate; but iu the face of the Standaid Oil threat the factory owners had to withdraw their demand for an increased tariff, and so the (in plate men will continue to receive low wages, but they have the satisfaction of knowing that the Standard Oil Company is all risjlit Wages aie falling everywhere in Ohio. The condition of the farmers is pitiful. I know of many cases in which farmers have offered to give up their farms for a clear acijuittance, but they will have to ao through the pain of foreclosure proceedings, lose their homes and still be in debt.

This latter was a fortunate circumstance for lco had already sur rendered, though the' tidings bad not yet reached West Alabama, Time ami railroads have changed or rather Oakville (the seene of the story), from an old-fashioned Southern town, to a young and thriving city.
