Bll S BSSSS B-1SSSS--- r To -Assist Nature In restoring dtaeaaed or waated tissue Is all that any medicine can do. Iu put monury affections, such aa Colds, Bron chitis, and Consumption, the mucous membrane first becomes Inflamed, then accumulations form In the air-cells of the limps, followed by tubercles, and, flually, destruction of the tissue. It Is plain, therefore, that, until the hacking cough la relieved, the bronchial tubes can have no opportunity to heal. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral Soothes and Heals the Inflamed membrane, arrests the wasting process, and loaves no Injurious results. Tills is why It Is more highly eatemoed than any other pulmonary specific. L. D. Bixby, of Bartonsville, Vt., writes : " Four years ago I took a se vere cold, which was followed by a terrible cough. I was very sick, and confined to my bed about four months. My physician finally said I was In con. sumption, and that he could not help me. One of my neighbors advised me to try Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. I did so, and before I had taken half a bottle was able to go out. By the time I had finished the bottle I was well, and have remained so ever alnce." Alonzo P. Daggett, of Smyrna Mills, Mo., writes: " Six years ago, I was a trav eling salesman, aud at that time was suffering with Lung Trouble. For months I was unable to rest nights. I could seldom lie down, had frequent choking spells, and was often com pelled to neek the open air for relief. I was Induced to try Ayer's Cherry Peetoral, which helped me. Its con tinued use has entirely cured me, and, I believe, saved my life." Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, PREPARED BY Dr. J. C. Ayer & Co., Lowell, Mast. Bold by all Druggists.

No one can afford to neglect a cold, as catarrh and chronic bronchitis are caused by neglected colds.

Neither cat arrh nor chronic bronchitis can be per manently cured, as when apparently cured, a cold will bring them on again and every succeeding cold will aggravate them. These are facta which no observing person cab deny. It is of the utjuost importance that every cold be cured as quickly as possible after the first symptoms appear and It ha been abundently proven that there Is no medicine that will cure a cold In 1cm time than Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, besides it leaves the system m av bealthy a condition as it was before the oold was contracted.

Texas Farm and Raneh. The statement is made by officers of the Farmers' Alliance Exobanga of this city, that the institution is nnw nracticallv out of debt With a neat surplus of assets ahead. Not withstanding this apparently flatter ing renort. it cannot be denied the o Exchange has traveled n. very "rocky" road and mads many serious blun ders. Whether they were the result of official incapacity or the failure of the order to respond to their own in formal pledges, or yet simple miscal culations which might have occurred in any business, the fact remains that mistakes, nnd 6erions, too, have been made, and that the Exchaugehasnot entirely turned the commercial world end foremost. This is said with all due respect to the righteousness of the Alliance enterprise in trying to correct prevailing commercial abuse. Texas Farm and Ranch ventures the suggestion that the Exchange in the future ovoid over-reaching its ability by confining itself to opera tions that it can successfully perform. is better than - fi.v BuemPted and left unfinished ""J . ei There is much to be done of benefit to farmers in the way of bulkiug pro duce in large quantities for more sys tematic classification and better prices.

Now that the smoke of the politi- bal contest has cleared away it is pertinent to ask what the battle has settled. Practically little indeed. The great questions growing out of the tariff and the surplus have by no means been determined by the elec tion of Mr. Harrison, nor does the defeat of Mr. Cleveland pat to rest the qnostion of tariff reform. New Jersey, a very large portion of whose people are dependent upon industries especially fostered and paotected Dy the high tariff, gate Mr. Cleveland an increased plurality in 1888 over that of 1884. The state of Connecticut which in every valley hums with man ufactories believed to be greatly aid ed by the tariff, remains faithful to Mr. Cleveland in 1888 as in 1884, New Hampshire, which is specially interested in wool growing, gives Mr. Harrison a plurality about half as large as that given Mr. Blaine four years ago. There are reduced plur alities in some other eastern and sev eral other western ptates over four ears ago. Had the principles laid down by the president in his famouB message been as dangerous as they were declared to be, there would have been no indications of this kind of svmpathy with his ideas in the very states most benefitted by pro tection. The eleotion settled the condition of Dakota and perhaps three other western territories, but it , did not settle the position of those territories, when they become states, on the tariff reform question. Dako ta ouorbt to have been admitted as two states last summer, and it is probable that one of the first acts of the new congress will be to admit North and South Dakota, Idaho, Montana and Washington; but the people of those territories, while not free traders, are in favor of a reformation of the tar iff. The election did not settle our fisheries dispute with Canada. Mr Harrison may have a different woy of dealing with that question, but we do not expect the "vigorous foreign policy" the supposed absence of which was the source of so much criticism on the part of republicans during the last year. We doubt if Mr. Harrison will show more activity in the dispo sal of that question than did Mr. Cleveland. We are in no condition to double up our fists and pitch into Mr. John Ball, and this will mollify the wrath of the republicans. These are are some of the things the elec tion has not removed from the field of practical politics, and the people have them yet in charge unless the new adminiatration shall dispose of them before 1892. President Cleveland's Wealth. Washikoton, D. C, Nov. 14. It is reported that President Cleveland is contemplating the sale of Oakview, bis present country residence. It is calculated that a sale at the prevail ing price for suburban property in the neighborhood ought to net him a clear profit of f 100,000 for his in vestment of three years ago. An in timate friend of the President says that he will dispose of Oakview, and upon the expiration of bis term of office next spring will take a trip to Europe with Mrs. Cleveland. He does not propose to return to the law at present for the reason that ne cessity does not oompel him to do so. He has saved more than $100,000 out of his salary, and he was worth $50,000 when he came into office. Mrs. Cleveland's share of the Folsom estate is estimatod at $250,000. so that the friend in question places the Cleveland wealth at $500,000 next March. This is sufficient to afford Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland a comforta ble income, and with this in view the President does not propone to return at rinM tn hia nrofeasion. After a A trip to Europe it ie intimated he will settle down in Buffalo, aod may then i " " m Next to having Ler young man come to aee Ler Tharaday evening, a girl l.kce beat to tUnd on the side walk aod lock at the engagement nngs shown in a first class jeveWs - -,1 T 1 W' OW'H JL la waiLinff iLsLea, pots and panr a ' :.. , I ln aa. aa.1 ama'J nius. ... - , r arafaa ia 1. a tiA 9 AT.

" The Yaloe of Onion i, A writer in one of onr exchanges recommends boiled or roasted onions a most excellent remedy for. a cough and for the clogging of the bronchial tabs, wbiob is usually the caups of the cough. He says that if onions are eaten freely at the outset of a cold, they may break it up. He also quotes a medical writer as reoom mending the giving of onions to the children three or four times a week, young onions to be eaten raw, and to be eooked when they got too large and strong. Another writer says: "During unhealthy seasons, when dintheria and like contagious diseas- es prevail, onions ought to be eaten in the spring of the year at least once a week. Onions are invigorating and prophylactio beyond description." Whether the virtues here ascribed to onions are exaggerated or not it is certain that the onion contains an oil which acts strongly on the secretions of the bronchial tubes, kidneys, and skin. This oil Ib stimulant andtonio and thus promotes digestion, The onion is also nutritiouc, being rich in uitrogenous elements and in sugar. Roasted it makes, with oil, a stimu lating poultice for suppurating nloers. In warm countries its flavor is more delicate and it is extensively used for food. In Spain and Portugal it is often eaten raw, and, with a piece of bread forms the dinner of the work ing people. As boiling largely dissi pates the oil when used medicinally, it should be roasted rather tan boiled. Belonging ta the onion samily and the most Belf-aasorting member is garlic, from which mainly the oil is obtained, and hence is called "oil of garlic," It is extensively used as food in Bonthern European countries. An other member of the family is leek, the mildest of thorn all. It has ne proper bulb. It is used mainly for the lower part of tho stem, which is blanohed and enlarged by earthing, It is a favorite among the Welsh and has beoome so with the Scotch. ' Alliance Matters. On his return from Dallas Mr. D. M. Cunningham, member of the State Alliance executive committee, was met by a citizen reporter, who learned that the Alliance is in excellent finan cial condition and all departments are working smoothly. A number of state lecturers were appointed, among them Mr. J. T. Evans, of Hutto, and these lecturers will make a thorough canvass of the state. Mr. Cunningham is a thorough business man, conser vative in all his ideas, and he exer cises a great deal of influence in check ing extreme action by the executive committee. He does not believe in the state exchange attempting to transact the local business of the country, but wants its transactions oonfinod to a few specialties where mutual profit will result During the ssBsion last week a communication was sent to the cattle convention in St. Louis, expressing a hope that the dressed beef monopoly of Chicago and Kansas City may be brokon in order that our home cattle raisers and botchers may do their business. It is the policy of the State Allianco to encourage any industry that will increase the prosperity of its individ ual members, and the ordor does not desire to make its members do busi- with the state exchange when they can do better at home.
