Tnere is a general fear here that, a
repetition of the bloody riots of li9 )
when scores of rioters were sh'jt down
and killed by the police and militia, is
at hand.
The situation Is critical. It was
brought about by the action of tne
mayor of Valparaiso in ordering L00J
workshops closed, thereby throwing
thousands of men out of employme it.
Unless something u done immediately
to provide for tne idle thousands, serious
trouble will result.
The authorities only quellod tho
riots of lb'JO after a great loss of life.
The rioters at that time looted many
stores to obtain food and clothing, and
the result was the police and militia
were called out to put an end to the
troubles. Scores of idle men were shot
down and cut down in the streets.

tnents of death
are a few inches
of trivial disorders,
by many
feet of neglect.
If a man oi

take care of the
little trivial
disorders, iliere
is no need to
fear tlie h'
maladies, and
long-life and
happiness will-be
the reward.
Tlie little disorders
cansethe majority of big sicknesses, are
the trivial derangements of tlie digestion
that most people pay no heed to. Good
digestion feeds and builds up a man ; bad
digestion starves him in every tissue,
muscle, nerve-fiber, and brain-cell.
Bad digestion leads to consumption,
blood and skin diseases, and nervous
and prostration. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery corrects all
disorders of the digestion, invigorates the
liver and prevents and" cures consumption,
blood and skin diseases, and nervous
troubles. It is tlie great blood-maker,
