Judge Lair returned home
"Sunday from his trip to Ft

tips with the ruler, 10,200 boxes
on the ear 22,700 tasks by the

the fool's cap and 1,700 hold
the rod.

A GOOD THING

tion of Dr. A. Boschee, a celebrated
German physician, and is ncknowl
edged to be one of the most fortun
ate discoveries In medicine. It quick
ly cures coughs, colds and all lung
troubles of the severest nature, re
moving as It does, the cause of the
affection and leaving the parts in a
strong and healthy condition. It Is
not an experimental medicine, bnt
has stood the test of years, giving
satisfaction in every case, which its
increasing pale ever-season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Boschee's German syrup was intro
duced in the United States in lSttX,
and Is now sold in every town and
village In the civilized world. Three
dotses will relieve any ordinary
cough. For sale by Hadley, the
