Trouble Makers OiiKtcil, When a sufferer from stomach trouble takes Dr King’s New Life Pills he's mighty glurl to see his dysp- peia and in digestion fly ; but more—he's tickled over bis new, fine appetite, strong nerv s, healthy vigor, all because stom ach, liver and kidneys now work right. at the Bloss Drug Store, Ceredo, and K. Key Williams’, Kcnova. Death came to presidents and former j presidents of the United States in the following ways : Washington’s death was due to acute laryngitis; Adams, Madison and Monroe, practically to old pge ; Jefferson, chronic diarrhoea; John Quincy Adams, dropsy, i Van Bnren, catarrhal affections of the | throat and lungs ; William Henry Har rison, pleurisy ; Tyler cause of death not given by biographers; Polk, cholera ; Taylor cholera morbus combined with severe co'd ; Fillmcre, paralysis; Pierce, dropsy; Buchanan, rheumatic gout; Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley; as sassinated: Johnson, paralysis; Grant, cancer at the root of Tongue; Hayes, neuralgia of the heart ; Arthur, heart trouble; Benjamin Harrison,pneumonia and Grover Cleveland heart failure following a complication of other diseases. Sometimes you may lie told that there are other things just as good as De Witt's Kidney and Bladder Pills That isn’t so, Nothing made is as good as DeWitt’s Kidney and Bladder Pills for any ailment* of the kidney or bladder, which always result in weak hack, back ache, rheumatic pains, rheumatism and urinary disorders. A trial of DeWitt’s Kidney and Bladder Pills is sufficient to convince you how good they are. Send your name toE. C. DeWitt & Co., Chi* • ago for a free trial bo*. They are sold by the Bloss Drug Co and Keuova Druggists. Lowry Porter of Kenova and Pearl Ford of Catlettsburg got into a row on an Ohio Valley Klectric K’y car last Wednesday evening and concluded they would settle the matter when the car stopped at Main street, this place. Only a few licks were struck and neither of tbe combatant* was serioutly hurt. Sergeant J. F. Webb swore out warrants for the disturbers of the peace and the? appeared before hi" honor, Mayor Sturgill, Thurs day and were each fined $2.00 and costs. Washington, Letter. Washington, l). C., j June 19. ) West \ irginia can congratulate herself on the woolen schedule. The house re-enacted the “Dingley tariff’’ and the senate has made very few changes, and these for the better. The schedule has been up for discussion for a number of days and it*, passage has been de layed by Senators Dollivei and LaFcllette, wrho are talking against it. Several votes have been taken however and the committee has never lacked a majority of less than ten. So West \ irgnia wool-grow ers and farmers can rest satisfied with the fact that they are going to have about the same woolen rales they have now. President 1 aft and Senator Scott have been giving a surprise party. 1 he two of them got it up between them. That is President I aft made the suggestion and Senator Scott bunted up and in vited ail the guests. They kept it so quiet that the lady to be sur prised was absolutely surprised and scarcely knew what to do. The occasion for the party was a desire to present to Miss Mabel Uoardman, of this city, a watch and chain, which was selected by Mrs. Scott. She was a member of the famous “Taft Party” which visited the Phillippines over throe years ago. She was the life of the travelers and a universal favorite. She has entertained the “Taft Party” at her father's palatial home since their return and it was in this residence that the President and Mrs. raft lived for a week or ho before moving into the White House on the 4th of March. Presi dent Taft thought thy. it would be a most pleasant thing to remember her and so he sent for his friend, Senator Scott. Together they con cocted the scheme and the pleasant conspiracy. All the members of the party were written to, respond ed most cordially and liberally, and very many of them were present at the surprise party, which occur red the evening of the 8th. It was a success. Hon. W. S. Meredith of Fair, inon*, W. * a., accompanied by hn law partner, Mr. Conley, was in th • city during the week. He came to look after the site for a public build ing in his home town. As is the case in Hint on and several other places the fight is on over a propos ed site and everybody in the town is on one side or the other. Sena tor Meredith was on crutches, be ing only convalescing from a se vere fracture of one of his legs. He i is so pleased to be out and around J that he does not mind the crutches. I He remained in the city only a day j but thoroughly enjoyed the beauties of Washington. I he hosiery schedule, too, has been passed by the senate as the fi nance committee amended it. It came up at one of the night ses. sions. Senator Scott urged the ne cessity of the house rates, which are a little higher than those pro posed in the amendments. He showed how the knitting mill at Martinsbuig had prospered under i protective tariff until the “Herman tariff agreement” went into effect. With figures he showed that on tin low grade of socks that used to re tail for twenty-live cents a pair this mill put on the market goods sell ing two pairs lor a quarter. These hose are better than the ones that used to sell at twenty-live cents. On the high grade, however, there is not a sufficient duty to give the American manufacturer the protec tion he should have. This is one of the examples that show conclus ively that under a protective tariff home compelilon lowers the pricp to the consumer. Another light will he made by Senator Scott be fore the conference committee on this paragraph when it goes to con ference. The democralio senators are hav ing some troubles of their own. A few days ago Senator Stone took occasion to read the riot act to all democrats who voted against ' free lumber. Senator Stone is a warm personal friend of William .1. Bryan and is supposed to be his mouth piece in congress. Senator Bailey of Texas, who voted for a duty on lumber, took exception to Senator Stone’s remarks and proceeded to give the senator from Missouri and the late presidential candidate of the democratic parly a most severe lecture. He produced the record of Mr. Bryan while he was a member of the house of representatives and showed that ho bar! there refused to be hound by the national platform of the democratic party. The re publican senators enjoyed this row hugely. The democrats are having a good deal of sport out of the “rowing” on the republican * Ride and this is the first real good chance there has been for retaliation. Ainoug the YVest Virginians in the city (luring the week were Mon. Arnold C. Soherr, Hon. Howard Sutherland of Klkins, Mr. Sipel of Petersburg ami Mr. J. K. Wyatt of Charles Town. Mr. Wyatt came to look after the claim of a Jefferson county church which had been destroyed during the war. Many of these claims have been presented in the senate when there is scarely any pojsibili ty of relief being granted. Con gress has held for years that where no effort was made, after the Civil war, to collect from one of the de partments, or to firing the matter before the commission that sat on these claims twenty odd years ago, they were all dead. The law mak ing body of the government has been consistent in refusing to pay such claims. So this is the reason why so many people are disappoint ed. The court of claims simply re ports a finding of facts to congress and this report is not binding in any way; congress can do as it deems best. Keaiiek.

Origin of tiiv not known, although it is thought to have occurred in some manner in the restaurant. Four women who occupied rooms over the grocery were compelled to leap for their lives. They were caught by strong men and all escaped unhurt except ing a girl named Bertha Meyers who was severely out by broken glass. Her wounds, however, will not prove aerious. - Aii Optimist. Judge W. VV. Marcum of Coredo, was here this afternoon attending to legal business with local attor neys. He believes the day is rapid ly approaching when tho district now erabraoed in Kenova and Ceredo will be a compact city, and that the whole tri-statc section will become one of the greatest indus trial centres of the country. Judge Marcum frequently visits Huntington, and has always been an optimist with reference to the city’s future. — Huntington Adver tiser, June 18. There is now in progress some thing of an exodus of colored labor ers from Huntington and vicinity, the double track work on the Nor folk ifc Westorn, north of Kenova, being the objective point. The contract now under way there will give employment to a large force of men for several months. Scores of Huntington laborers have recently gone to North Kenova and other points along the grade work which is being started on that part of the Xorlolk it Western’s trunk line. Negroes from the <J. it O. pass through Huntington daily en route to the new construction camps. These laborers, usually without means, and traveling on foot or on freight trains, often collide with the Iluntinuton authorities, but whenever they can give a good ac count of themselves are allowed to proceed unmolested. — Huntington Advertiser. Shoals, YV. Yra. Ray* Work ma n. A marriage of more than usual interest, by reason of the popularity of the contracting parlies, wan solemnized yesterday afternoon (June 10) at I o'clock at the home ol the bride, when Mr. Theodore Kay and Mrs. Indiana Wokman were united in wedlock's holy bonds. K<*v. Jerry Harmon of the Baptist church performed the ceremony in the presence of a few' friends and relatives. The bride is the widow of the late J. K. I*. Workman. Her kindness to all has made her quite a favorite with her large number of friends. Mr. Kay is a native of West Virginia, but for years has lived in the far west and is a very pleasant gentleman. Mr. and Mrs. Ray have lived a novel story life. Kach being true friends in early days and corres pondents through the war of the Rebellion, but drifted away. Kach loved, married and lost. Then again love of bygone days appear ed in its solemn vows and made man and wife. We wish them wealth, health and happiness through life.

It is the exjMH'fation of those direatlv interested in new developments at Kenova that the population of the town will l*© more than doubled within the next two years ; that from fnnr hundred to seven hundred stool workers will be employed there »x>fore Jude, 1910, that other industries there and a general re sumption of business activity in Hunt ington and thmuirhniit the tri-stato region will practically double tralHo ou the car lino between Huntington and Ashland.

First John, fourth chapter and second verse : “Hereby know ye the Spirit of Cod; every spirit that confesselh that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.*' I would like to ask the readers of thin verse whether this ih speaking of Christ's descension into the world or in the likeness of sinful flo*h ; to condemn the weakness and unprofitableness of the law; to abolish death for hi.s people who were under tho law. Our Bible teaches us that he that descended is the same as he that ascended. Christ was manifested in the flesh through the oracle of circumcision; justified in tho spirit when He ful filled God's will and was the end of the law for righteousness for those who survived him in that vail of worship.
