Kentucky Fair Dates. Italy Accusing Germany. OES IT Tb be Sick?

Perhaps you wake up in the morning with a heavily coated tongue, a bad taste in your mouth, and hardly any appetite. Quite likely you are bilious. Maybe you have dull aches and pains, CONSTIPATION, head aches. You go about your daily duties. You tell yourself you will feel better to-morrow but when to-morrow comes you feel just about the same. You try this and that remedy, without getting real relief. Or if you get some relief, it doesn't LAST! You soon feel just as bad as you did before. DOES IT PAY to let yourself stay in this half-sick condition? Think of all the ENJOYMENT of life you are missing! You can't enjoy your food, or the society of your family and friends. You cant enjoy anything as you should, because your senses are dulled and your brain oppressed by the effects of a SLUGGISH LIVER. Say, friend, does it PAY you to lug around that sluggish liver when you can promptly make ft ACTIVE and so get rid of all those depressing, disagreeable symp toms by letting DR. THACHER'S Liver and Blood Syrup take hold and give your Liver the help it needs? Don't delay. Don't procrastinate. Don t say "I'll do it to-morrow."

Just about the time a man suc ceeds in developing a theory it explodes. A remarkable man is one. who does a remarkable thing and doesn't talk about it. The man who makes light of other people's troubles usually swears at his own. Large hopes from small ideas grow. Many a woman has a fine car riage who never owned a horse.

Here are some: A fool shoots; God guides the bullet. If you are not caught you are no theif. When money speaks truth keeps silence. The spoken word can not be swallowed. Dogs bark and the wind car ries it away. It is a stupid mouse that knows only one hole. You cannot sew buttons on your neighbor's mouth. It is a bad soldier that does not aspire to be a general. A woman laughs when she can and cries when she wishes. Where God builds a church there the devil has his chapel. The greatest king must at last be put to bed with a shovel. The czar is generous, but his generosity aasses through the ministerial sieve. If you go to war, if you go on a sea journey, pray twice; out pray three times when you are going to be married. Even in hell the peasant will have to serve the landlord, for, while the latter is boiling in a cauldron, the former will have to put the wood under it. Hot Weathes Rules for Horses. 1.

Tobias Boskuhl, an officer of an interned German vessel lying at New Orleans, has just mar ried Miss Albertine Dehner, a girl of Steelton, Pa., for whom he had been searching 14 years. Voskuhl met the girl of his dreams when she was 18 and he was a petty officer on a liner ply ing between Germany and the United States. The girl, whose mother had died, was on the way to Steelton to live with her un cle, Otto Dehner, a brewer. The boy and girl became en gaged, but the stern old German uncle refused to countenance the match and wheu his niece insist ed that she would wed Voskuhl, he sent her to other relatives in Germany and refused to give the young officer her address. Believing Miss Dehner's love affair dead, the uncle sent for her again and she has been vi ing with him for ten years. Re cently she saw her lover's name and wrote to him. The wedding followed. John D. Rockefeller's estate is now estimated at one billion dol lars according to recent figures given out which makes him the richest man in the world. A strong demand has arisen in the press and among the public of Italy for cancellation of the agreement between 'Italy and Germany, whereby the rights of citizens of each country within the other's domain were to be respected. Violation of the agreement by the Germans is al leged in Rome. The situation is such that the relations between the two nations have reached a greater tension than at any time since the war begun. No state of war exists be tween Germany and Italy and the agreement negotiated by Prince Von Buelow still is in force. Italy, according to offi cial opinion, has faithfully ob served the agreement, refrain ing from touching German prop erty and freely all owing subjects of the German empire to reside there. On the other hand, Germany is accused, unofficially, of violat ing the agreement in depriving Italians in Germany of their lib erty of action, preventing Ital ians of military age residing in Belgium from leaving the coun try, suspending payments due Italians and treating them as subjects of a hostile power. Ac cordingly a demand is now being voiced for abrogation of the agreement. Short Stops. A man may boast of his an cestors because he has nothing to look forward to. It is easier to acquire a repu tation for greatness than it is to make good. One of the ambitions of the average man is to do those he has been done by. Many a woman who doesn't know her own mind gives her husband pieces of it. Nothing is gained by abusing those whose opinions differ from your own. Money you bet on the mare doesn't always push her under the wire first. Don't be in a hurry to accept a bald head as an official badge of wisdom. You can soon fill your purse by adding a little more than you take out. Many a man who thinks he's brilliant is not even ordinarily bright. People will have a good opin ion of you if you agree with them. If a girl in love becomes thin ner it is a case of loved and lost." It takes a spinster to give motherly advice to a young mother.
