K Miller, a clerk, set a tray of stones on the show case. Wuile the stranger was apparently examining the jewels another man entered and covered Mr. Miller with a gun. I he man who was looking at the diamonds took the tray and made his escape. After he had gon* the man with the gun quietly back 61 out the door onto Third avenue, which was quite crowded at the lime. As soon as they had gone an alarm was given and a large crowd soon collected. The men dashed to Ninth street and then ran into an alley leading to Tenth street. Chan.

Beck of Wakelee, Mich., “I bought a package of Cham berlain s Tablets, and since nsing them 1 have felt perfectly well.
