The Pyramid Pile Cure cures all forms Of piles without one panicle nf pain. This desirable point Is not obtained by the Usi of Injurious opiates which simply deaden and paralyze the nerves of the parts and make matters worse in the long run. Bui It Is dono solely by its remarkable heal In;;: and soothing effects. And while It thus gives Immediate re? lief, at the same time the disease is not merely cheeked, but a radical cure i? rapidly accomp! shed. And the point we wanl to make clear that all this Is done without a particle of pain. This fact Is one great reason for the popularity of the Pyramid Pile Cure and constitutes one very great difference be? tween It and nlmsst any other k:r.d of treatment for piles. Every k'.nd of rurglcal operation for piles is excruciatingly painful besides en? dangering the life of the pntlcnl and In m"-t cases la not to be compared with the Pyramid Cure, neither In making suc? cessful cures without pain nor in cheap riess and safety. The Pyramid Pile Cure has been before the public so loaiv, and its merits rec nlzed by too many people to allow It to he classed with the ninny salves, sup? positories, pills, etc.. and you run lie risk in iryliik' It. ns is often the >;, with untried preparations.

"If you in Jiy the scenes and songs of summer? the meadows, where the sunshine ploughs us golden furrows across the shadows; the ziz-zag rail fence stagger? ing across the landscape; lazy groups of sunflowers In the corners of the Held Where little yellow butterflies fly over the clover in twos and twos; bobo? links and bluebirds in the air. glitte? !ng, and twittering and singing, and over all the great white sails of clouds drifting dreamily over the blue; if your life has lost something, or you ate yearning for the unattalncd, perhaps unattainable; R" you are touched by memories of the past and thrilled by hopes of coming iley:;; if you have love for the old and dreams for the new? then you wiil enjoy Rlley." Mr. Rlley. the "Hoosler Poet," comes here for the benefit of the Protestant Hospital?an additional reason why the Academy should be crowded. Mr. Rlley will be assisted in his pro? gram by Prof. A. F. Koerner. Mr. Wil? liam Richards, Miss Alice Oliver and Miss Raynor, and several choice musi? cal numbers may be expected. "YE SHOW OF YE GIBSON GIRL."

The Ninth International Sunday School Convention will assemble at At? lanta. Ga.. April 2Cth. and will con? tinue In session for live days. This convention will be made up of delegates from all State organizations of the Union and of similar organiza? tions In foreign countries. It will be composed of representatives, practical. Christian people from all evangelical denominations, and it Is predicted that much good will be accomplished. Just twenty-one years ago the con? vention met at Atlanta and there In? stituted the International Sunday School Lesson Program. Much Interest is now being aroused, due In a measure to the fact that the association win as? semble In Atlanta in this, the great Jubilee year. There will be about 2.000 delegates, and the people of Atlanta, it is under? stood, have opened wide their homes for their entertainment. Georgia hospital? ity is known through out the Union, and the delegates who are fortunate enough to attend this convention will no doubt return to their homes with pleasant memories and enthused with the great work that will there be Inau? gurated. The scope of the work is broad. In? cluding all evangelic denominations. The committee which hr.s the program und? r consideration state that no per? son will be allowed to make more than one speech during the convention, and that all persons making speeches must say things that have never been spoken before at previous conventions. This la a unique and original Idea and will without doubt make the program of much value, not only to the dclogat !S themselves, but to cur country at large. It Is understood that special railroad rates have been arranged for the dele? gates, good ten days prior to April 26th and ten days niter April 2Gth. Just what the rate will be, we are not able to advise Just now, but no d >ubt It will be one far.- for the r ?und trip. As many of our people as possible should attend this convention. Mr. Asa G. Candler, Atlanta. Ga.. the local secretary, will give information about it. HOW MONEY ACCUMULATES.

Spring Medicine in the World. If there is one thing which the people have proved, it is t lie absolute necessity of lafcine a spring medicine during the trying changes of the spring months. Spring u I way l linds the system debilitated and impaired, the blood impoverished and impure, the nerves weak and relaxed, the organs cloggtd and inactive, in fact the whole sys? tem ran down and more or Ie?s out of order. Everybody, therefore, needs a sprim, remedy, and what reef*',? should take is the be<-t purifying and most strengthening med? icine possible, like I>r. Greene's Nervura bloo.i and nerve remedy. By this means only can they insure themselves positively against the weakening and debilitating ef? fects of spring. Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, because of its great purifying and blood enriching properties is tlie grratevt of blood builders. it is the most stren'.;thc;;i^~ and invigorating restor? ative fir Mood, nerves and body, and by its H ASgiSffijlf gentle and healthful effects arouses the atom- 'J iuxSkSSPbLv. i ARB ach. liver and kidneys from their sluggish and inactive condition. It is the one true, ideal spring medi? cine to take, is pure? ly vegetable and per? fectly harmless, and alwavs makes the weal; strong and well. It is, therefore, the best possible spring remedy to take. ffl Mrs. S. M. Hall. &m Wcnhvorth, N. 11., ? 'Al'riut twn years ;ir I w is laki Horn' r.t (er.-, ns I' ' ,? ?.&?VV while. Alter I ml nr.
