Penslar Asthma Remedy
is not offered as, or claimed to be, a cure. No one could compound a cure
iliHt would fit many cases for asthma is due to many different conditions
and usually it takes a most expert physician to determine the cause.
Hut we do claim that it will give you quick and harmless relief and
render your breathing easy and normal again. It ought to be worth a
t-'ood deal to you to know that you have such a remedy at hand. A 50
cent box contains enough for many treatments. The formular is on the
package of course. That is the Penslar way of doing things no secrecy
no exaggerated claims but on the contrary, you can read on the label
just what each remedy contains, and a frank and truthful statement of
what may be expected from its use.
Editorialettes-
Mrs. Cora Williams was elected presi
dent of the Florida and Alabama rail
road. The women seem to be getting
anything they want even without the
ballot.
An Indiana man, who claimsi have
voted for Andrew Jackson for President,
is stni living at the age or 107. It is
hoped he will be given another chance
to vote for another Democrat in 1910.
A Western jury has found the man
who killed an umpire guilty of murder.
In most cases, however, a verdict of
justifiable homicide would be more ap
propriate.
A more or less competent authority
once said that Lexington, Ky., was the
second city in wickedness in the United
Slates, Norfolk, Va , being given first
place. The statement is recalled by the
news that there were some fifty ar
rests in Lexington for the 24 hours
ending at midnight Sunday. The charg
es ran from drunkenness to bigamy. Is
our sister city training for first place In
infamy?
A Cincinnati woman cut on her nose,
not to spite her face, but by falling
against a piece of glass which complete
ly amputated it.

Senator Beck is credited with the re
mark that he had seen fifty pictures of
a certain man, all different, but each
looking like those of Judas Iscariat. We
have seen as many of Kvelyn Thaw, no
two alike and none of them showing
that she is pretty enough to have caus
ed all this trouble.
The so-called meloncholy days, the
sweetest of the year, we're reminded by
the bracing air will soon be with us
here. It's been as hot as Hades for very
long, but shortly we'll have to change
the burden of our song. The coal man
will take the ice man's job and then he
too will show us how to rob.

Japan is preparing to erect a monu
ment to the man who introduced sweet
potatoes in that country, which shows
that appreciation has a place in the lit
tle yellow yankees' hearts.
, The public will be rejoiced to know
that Winchester's lone street car, which
has been out of commission, has re
sumed it runs. The report that the mo-torman-conductor
was on a strike was
slightly exaggerated.
A New York man, who had a horror
of of being buried alive, cut his throat.
His fears were groundless. The under
taker said there was no doubt that he
was as dead as a mackerel.

Llephant Ball Game.
Of the many stunts performed by the
Sparks Circus herd of elephants the one
that probably gets the most appreciation
is the game of base ball played by these
mighty and unwieldy pachaderms. Ev
ery play is gone through with in the
most ludicrous manner, an the laughs
furnished by this number will remain
as a pleasant reniembronce of the cir
cus. All the accessories pitcher, batter,
catcher, umpire, fielders and their gloves
masks, bats and uniforms are present,
and "Big Mary" in the role of batter
seldom misses a home-run swat, and has
thus established a 400 mark batting rec
ord for herself. Running the bases and
the slide to home plate never fail to
bring forth rounds of applause and
laughter from the audience. Another
funny situation is when the pitcher has
two strikes on "Big Mary," he and the
catcher get into an animated argument
over the next ball to be served by the
pitcher and trumpet into each other's
ears. This little piece of by-play al
ways meets with the instant approval of
the audience and adds greatly to the
already funny number. This act was
presented to New York, City's delighted
millions last winter and came in for
more favorable newspaper comments
than any animal act seen there in re
cent years. This feature is positively
on the program of the Sparks World Fa
mous Shows, which are billed to exhibit
here Saturday, September 0th.

hear.

finish. Dust-proof Tickings WITHOUT EXTRA CHARGE.
Beware of so-called "Special Sales" on "Cotton-felt" or "Felt" Mattresses said to be
the "genuine kind" and offered at such ridiculously low prices as are sometimes seen dis
played. You do not know WHAT sort of material has been hastily STUFFED into the
ticking. From a Sanitary standpoint, it may be vile; unfit for any person to sleep upon. As
for genuine Comfort and Durability, such Mattresses are utterly worthless. It don't pay
to buy them.
Stearns & Foster Mattresses have a laced opening (Pat. applied for) through which
you can see and examine the inside of the Mattress you GET. That's the safe way to buy
a Mattress. You know what you are getting.

of litde webs forming many Springy, Buoyant layers standing nearly three feet high. These
layers are then LAID BY HAND and compressed to ONE-SIXTH their original height
and encased in the ticking; then tufted to just the proper tension so as to be Soft, yet Firm,

You owe it to yourself to get one and enjoy rest that is Refreshing Comfortable
Healthful.

fortable Mattress.
