There were no roads that a wagon train could use. My comrade and myselt had the good fortune to lay< in a supply of this medicine for our pack train before we left Tampa, and I know in four cases it abso lutely saved life."

The SlMternvllle Schools Opened for the Wiuter Thin Sfornlnir. This morning the Sistersville public schools under the principal ship ot Prof, J. M. Skinner, who had charge last winter, was opened for the coming term. The enroll ment for the first day at the main school building and at the branch in Garry Owen was very large and as near as could be estimated without having access to the reports of the teachers, was about 600. Prof. Skinner when uere was of the I'piu i? *m' that the enrollment would be i>i .ich larger in a few days as a great ?? any of the scholars have not yet in plied lor examination and admission. The schools will, this year, as last, be somewhat cio vded, l?.jt not nearly so much, thanks to lie foresight of the school board, w^ich unsed them to have erected t lianM*onie rew branch school '??-.iicmig on the South Side. T.'v tendance at the jchools fh:s >c?( will probably be larger than it ever has been heretofore for the reason that th- police have de termined that all children must at tend school, and under the compul sory school law recently passed by the legislature this is made possi ble, and the parents are liable to prosecution if they do not send their children to school. Taken all in all, the prospects for the present school year in the Sis tersville public schools, are as bright as could be wished for. ^ 1 Miss Frank Rus&ell, Miss Mollie Roome. Mrs. Sal lie Say re, George W. Stocking and a number of other people in the city, left this morning for Wheeling, where they go to attend the funeral of Mrs. Isham, who died on Saturday. . When y? ur stomach begins to touble you, it needs help. The help it need, is to digest your fooij, and until it gets it, you won't have any peace. Stomach trouble is very distressing, very obstinate, very dangerous. Many of the most dangeaous diseases begin with simple indigestion. The rea son that indigestion (not digestion, not-nouiishment) weakens the sys tem and allows disease germs to at tack it. The tntidote is Shaker Digestive Cordial, strengnhening, nourishing, curative. It cures in ; digestion and renews strength and health, jt does this by strengthen* ing the stomach, . by helping it to digest your food. It nourishes you. Shaker Digestive Cordial is made of pure herbs, plrnts and wine, is perfectly harmless and will certain ly cure all genuine stomach trouble. Sold by druggist, price 10 cents to $1.00 per bottle. . .

Rice, of this city, started the work of excavating the street back of the . Ohio River freight depot and passenger sta tion, preparatory to paving that portion of it its far as the freight depot extends. The work which will be a great improvement will be pushed along as rapidly* as pos sible and it will be but a short time until the yard will be in a fine con dition. ? i r ? - ? The Ohio River road is makihg some fine improvements in this city and it deserves great credit for doing what it has. The elegant station which it built here is greatly appreciated bv the public as are also all of the other im provements which have been made. Not the least of the improvements which have been and are being made here is the paving on that portion of the yard mentioned as last winter it was a mud hole of un certain depth and it was almost im possible to get a loaded wagon to or away from the depot. Another improvement here which will have been completed the first of the week is the erection of the electric light which will be located just at the north end of tbe station. A handsome ornamental pole for the light has been placed in position and the light will be put up this week. CYCU5S PARTY. Mtddlebonrne Young Peopl* Cnnie to Thin I'll j Yesterday.
