Butler Pa. Dear Sir: Lead and oil is no longer the paint to be prosperous with. As eyerybody knows, lead and oil chalks or powders off in about three years—three years is its limit. Painters are putting a little zinc in their lead to make it tough—it lasts a good three years with a little zinc. But painters don't like the job ot mix ing zinc. Its a tedious job, and, l>oth being white, nobody knows when the mixingis thorough. Itgets half mixed; and the paint goes on, a streak of lead and a streak of zinc. That is not good work. The mistake made is in trying to do by hand what is better done by machin ery. Hand-work can't compete with machine-work. Devoe lead and zinc is your paint. It wears twice as long as lead and oil. Thi3 reduces the cost of keeping a house well painted to half. Yours truly. 25 F. W. DEVOE & Co. P. S.—Patterson Bros, sells our paint in your section. Horse Sale.

Years have gone by since the sugges tion was first made that great orators might enlarge their audiences through the use of such a system of telephones that their irrefutable arguments and burning words might be carried over the wires to many halls and homes at the same time. Now comes a delightful tale from a Michigan town, in which a smallpox quarantine has cut down the attendance upon church services to scanty gatherings. This consolat >ry anecdote avers that the central tele phone exchange of the town made up a ; circuit at the usual church hour, and over the wires hymns. Scripture lessons and sermons fifteen minutes in length were transmitted to pions listeners. A special meeting of the Butler Pres bytery of the U. P. church, was held at • Grove City Monday and attended by nearly all the county U. P. ministers. The regular monthly meeting of the Y. P. C. T.

Imagine a man just about to lead to the altar the woman of his heart, flushed with the joy natural to husbands elect, being informed the minions of the law are lying in wait to conduct him to prison for sixty days for being a patron of a gambling house, and a faint idea may be had of the plight in which William Fuller, the leading character in William Maxwell Goodhue's furious ly funny farce "Hello Bill" finds him self. Hello Bill will be presented at the Park Theatre March 7 and from what has been said in other cities con cerning the production, local theatre goers are assured of the comedy hit of the season. The cast is an excellent one. VANITY FAIR.—MARCH i)th. Matinee and Night. Miss Gertrude Coghlan. whose suc cessful portrayal of Thackeray's great character "Becky Sharp ' in "Vanity Fair" has proven one of the theatrical surprises of the season, will bring her big production to the Park Theatre March 9. Matinee and night. Miss Coghlan's success in this char acter is unquestionable. She has al ways been considered a young actress of rare ability, but when it was an nounced some months ago that she was to begin her starring career in the dra matization of Thackeray's masterpiece, it caused all sorts of comment in the theatrical world and her friends feared, lest she should make a failure. It was a Ijold attempt and the plucky little woman, who by the way, is scarcely out of her teens, deserves all the credit and benefit that she is now receiving. STOCK Co.— NEXT WEEK. No manager in the amusement pro fession today has done more to lift the popular-priced end of the profession from the slough of contempt and oppro brium into which it had been sunk through the efforts of irresjionsible man agers and incompetent actors, to the present plane of permanence and re spectability which it occupies, than John A. Himmelein, whose Imperial Stock company opens a week's engagement at the Park theatre next Monday. Like all great works which have achieved prominence the secret is simple—he gives his patrons the best possible amusement for the very least possible price He always keeps faith with his patrons. Ladies tickets will be issued for Monday night. Grand Opera House, I'ittsburg The magnificent stock company at the G/and Opera House, Pittsburg, is preparing a production of Franklin Fyles' great war drama. "Cumberland 'til" for next week. This play is a faithful picture of the war struggles be tween North and South, which we are now so willing to forget the hatred of. while we treasure like precious jewels the memories of the brave deeds of gal lant men and the patient heroism of fair women on both sides of the border line. Franklin Fyles is one of the best known dramatic eritics of this countrv. This week is one of the biggest in the history of the house. The magnificent presentation of that greatest of romatic plays, "Under the Red Robe" is draw' iug enthusiastic crowds to every per formance. PITTSBURG ORCHESTRA What will go on record as the most brilliant Orchestra season in Pittsburg comes to a close Friday evening, March yth, and Saturday afternoon, March9th. ; These two concerts complete Mr. Victor Herbert's third season as Conductor of the Pittsburg Orchestra.

The Knights as a rule feared "DO foe in shining armor." In the fights they indulged in it was give and take, and as a rule the best mau won. But there was one foe who ever haunted the damp and draughty castles of the Knights, one of whom they stood ia abject fear, and that foe was rheumatism. Rheumatism in the shoulder and no more swinging of the sword. Rheumatism in the legs and no more striding of the war charger. Un happy were the servants of the Knight who was kept at home by stiffened limbs and aching bones When great thing* were toward. Every friend became bit enemy as he looked at the good sword on the wall and vainly tried to raiae the impotent arm. Word* it haa been 6aid are fossil his tory. The Roman naturalists christened the" leopard leopardtts t>ecau»e they sup posed the spotted creature was the joint offspring of lion and tiger. So the name leopard, embalms ancient ignorance and preserves it like a fly in amber. It is the same with the word rheuma tism. Its name implies that it was sup posed to be a sort of rheum, a catarrhal affection, such as results from a cold. And while the treatment for rheumatism was based on that theory it was small wonder that cures Were infrequent. To day we locate the cause of rheumatism in the blood and w« drive it out scien tifically by the use of Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. TUK MODERN TREATMENT. " Quite a number of years ago, when I was a girl at home, my father was pros trated upon a bed of sickness," writes Sirs. P. M. Wheeler, of No. 2 Ann Place, Bradford, Penns. "He had rheumatism and a complication of troubles which baffled the skill of three of our best pbvsicians All through the winter mouths he lay upon his bed, suffering severely at times with rheumatism in his limbs. While in this condition a pam phlet containing a description of Dr. Pierce's remedies fell into nis hands. I remember of his sitting up in bed and reading it through and then exclaiming, 'That medicine is just what I need!' Just then a neighbor came along who was going to town and we sent for a bottle of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. We laid aside the doctor's medicines and commenced jriving my father the ' Golden Medical Discovery,* according to directions. The first three days he felt worse, as is often the case. After that he commenced to gain. His physician was surprised at the change in his condition and candidly admitted that the 'Golden Medical Discovery* was doing more for him than ht had been able to do. In less than two weeks my father was up with hi* clothe* en. He continued taking the medicine tad in a short time was well, and ever afterward was loud in his praises of l)r. Pierce'i Golden Medical Discovery as h* told of the wonderful cure it performed In hit case." When the cause of rheumatism it located in the blood it is at once evident that the one thing to do is to purge the blood of the acids and p«isons which breed and feed the disease. In all com mon forms of blood disease, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery may be used with absolute confidence in the result. It cures scrofula, salt-rheum, tetter, eczema, pimples, boila, ulcers, sores ana eruptions of all kinds which are caused by the corrupt condition of the blood. It it the BKST BESOM FOR TBS BLOOD because it absolutely drives out and eliminate* the poisons which cause disease. "In the (all of 1893 my ankle began to pain me, writes Sirs. C. £. Bright, of Tunnel City, Monroe Co., Wis. "Not a steady pain, but it grew worse fast and soon became a running sore. It made me very lame. When I sat down had to rest it on a stool, as I could not endure the pain when it was on the floor. The doctor gave me something to heal it, but it would break out worse than ever in a short time. That was the way I suffered fof five years. I was so nerv. ous hardly knew what I was doing sometimes. Oot so I could not dp the work for myself and husband. In the fall of 1898 I commenced to take Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and ' Pleasant Pellets. My ankle soon healed and my nerve# grew strong. I have not had any return of the trouble since, and now I often walk over a mile and feel no bad effects. I am very thankful for my recovery. Formerly I was seldom able to ride even." "Golden Medical Discovery" not only purifies the blood but it increases it in quantity and enriches it in quality. The proof of this is found in the fact that the vitality of every organ of the body is increased by the use of the Discov ery." The liver is made active, the kidneys throw off disease, the heart is strengthened, the lungs are healed, and the body gaining in flesh and increasing in weight records this gain of vitality in pounds and ounces of sound, solid flesh. BEOIN RIGHT AND BEGIN RIGHT NOW. If you are suffering from rheumatism or any other form of Dlood poison, begin right by using the powerful blood puri fier, " Golden Medical Discovery." And begin right now. Don't put it off. Dday is the friend of disease. Every day of delay means a longer struggle when the battle begins. Drive the cor rupt causes of disease from the blood. Be rid fortver of scrofula. Wash the pimples from the skin, heal the defiling sores, and bring back the flesh tints and* contours of youth. "Golden Medical Discovery" does all this and more, on the testimony of thousands of self respecting men and women. There is no alcohol in " Golden Med ical Discovery" and it is free from opium, cocaine and all other narcotics. Accept no substitute for Dr. Piercers Golden Medical Discovery. There is nothing "just as good" for purifying the blood. NO QUARTKR is necessary to secure a cow of Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical Ad viser.
