From the Chapin, S. C., News: Early
in the spring my wife and I were taken
with diarrhoea and so severe were the
pains that we called a physician who
prescribed for us, but his medicine fail
ed to give any relief. A friend who had
a bottle of Chamberlin's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy on hand gave
each of us a dose and we at once felt
the effects. I procured a bottle and be
fore using the entire contents we were
entirely cured. It is a wonderful re
medy and should be found in every
household. H. C. Bailey, Editor. This

of Shepherdtown, W. Va., says "I had a
severe case of bronchitis and for a year
tried everything I heard of, but got no
relief. One bottle of Dr. King's New
Discovery then cured me absolutely."

A Scotch paper tells of a dream and
its interesting interpretation, which in
truthfulness will rank with Joseph's
famous explanation: A laborer of the
Dundee harbor lately told his wife, on
awakening, a curious dream which he
had had during the night. He dreamed
that he saw, coming toward him, in
order, four rats. The first was very fat,
and was followed by two lean rats, the
fourth rat being blind. The dreamer
was greatly perplexed as to what might
follow, as it was understood that to
dream of rats denotes calamity. He ap
pealed to his wife concerning this, but
she could not help him. His son, a
sharp lad, who had heard his father tell
the story, volunteered to be the inter
preter: "The fat rat," he'said, "is the
man who keeps the public house (saloon)
that ye gang to sae often, and the two
lean ones are me
and my mither, and the
blind one is yerself, father." Who could
give a better answer?—Church Evan
