Milo Page, of San Bernardino, Cal., on Sept. i>, 1888, writes as follows: In 1858 I was taken with bilious col ic being then seventeen years old. Year ly attacks followed, aud at length thev became more frequent. In 1872, while residing in Oakland, I suffered severely from this disease, and was informed by Dr. Pinkerton that it was chronic and incurable. While prostrated by a severe attack, a friend induced me to take a large dose of Walker’s Vinegar Bitters, Old Style, probably four wine glasses full. In less than half an hour I was free from pain. I followed this up with three wine-glasses a day—one half an hour before each meal -until I used up the bottle. For over seven years 1 was perfectly free from bilious colic, but in the fall of ’79 1 was engaged in mining in Nev ada, and the coarse food I ate brought on a sharp attack. I was far from any drug store, but I despatched a courier eighty miles for a bottle of Vinegar Bitters. When he returned I was unable to speak, but I put the bottle to my lips, took two swallows, and in twenty min utes the paiu left me. I finished the bottle as before, taking three doses daily, and for nine years afterward I was perfectly free from the dreaded disease. A month ago it returned, but trying the old remedy, Vinegar Bitters, I was cured, as before. I write this because you do not espec ially recommend Vinegar Bitters for bilious colic. Only those who have suffered the agonies of this disease, can understand what a boon a sure cure is, and in Old Style Vinegar Bitters you have the best, and perhaps the only real remedy known. In reply to Mr Page we will say that Vinegar Bitters cures hundreds of dis eases; we have not the space to catal ogue them, and perhaps if we publish ed them those unacquainted by exper ience with our valuable remedy, might doubt its efficacy still,as so many worth less preparations are thrust on the mar ket, and puffed in so many extravagant ways. The fact remains, however, that those who have been accustomed to take Vinegar Bitters for any length of time, are bale and hearty, wether they are young or old. Those who doubt and fail to take it, are likely to fall into all manner of ailments, great and small. Vinegar Bitters, both Old and New Styles, keep those who take them fresh, fair, healthy, and young looking, and when we once gain a cus tomer, we keep them always, like Mr. Page, who sent eighty miles for Vine gar Bitters, and it was almost a ride for life. The New Style Vinegar Bitters is a beautiful, clear, dark reddish color and extremely pleasant to the taste.

Repnblloan Platform* The platform was as follows 1. Resolved, That the Republican party of lowa, In convention assembled, congratulates the country on the restoration of the party to power In the Federal Government. We indorse the administration of President Harr* son as eminently wise, loyal and just. We favor a liberal construction of the pension laws and such further legislation as will secure to the old soldier his just dues from a Govern ment he has faithfully served and which he has enriched by his sacrifice. 8. That we demand of Congress the protec tion of American Industry when it does not foster trusts or trade conspiracies, and we de mand the same protection for farm products that is given to the products of labor of other classes. 3. That we reaffirm the principles and policy of State railway regulation. We favor main taining equality among all localities and in dividuals and we oppose the granting of favors to one class of citizens denied to others, and should experience demonstrate the necessity, we favor such changes In the law as should be made in the interests of right and justice to all. We urge upon Congress the absolute prevention of rebates and discrimina tions on railways that foster monopolies and prevent competition. 4. That it la the duty of the State and Fed •ral Governments to enact and execute laws to punish (fade conspiracies, trusts and com bines designed to limit the production of the necessaries of life, raise prices, and interfere with the natural course of trade, and whlbh injuriously divert trade and traffic from the c ties and towns of lowa to commercial cities outside of our borders. 5. That we reaffirm the past utterances of the Republican party of lowa upon prohibi tion, which has become the settled policy of the State upon wh ch there should be no back ward step. We stand for the complete en forcement of the law. 6. That we extend a hearty welcome to the four new States whloh have been so long knoeking at the door of the Union and we con gratulate them on Republican success where by their admission into the sisterhood of States was so happily achieved T. That we deplore the loss of life on our railways and the danger attending so many of our oltizens engaged in railway employment, and we urge upon the Legislature to takesueh practical steps as will secure all possible pro tection to this class of our people. 8. That we favor the establishment of courts of arbitration for the settlement of differ ences between corporations and organized labor. 9. That we profoundly sympathize with the bona fide settlers on the Des Moines rivet lands and we express the hope that in the end they will be made secure In the rights to which they are entitled. 10. That we earnestly indorse the eminently wls* vigorous and courageous administration ot Governor Larrabee, and we approve his poll cy that all laws shall be fearlessly and honest ly enforced. WASHINGTON LETTER. From Original Correspondent. Washington, D. C., Aug. 25. I visited the Soldiers’ Home, and Na tional Cemetery to-day, and passed the entire afternoon wandering through the beautiful and very extensive grounds of the Home. Only invalid regular army soldiers are admitted here, and the number at present is 700, They are well cared for by the Govern ment, and nothing is wanting that will contribute to the happiness of their declining years. The great majority of them are veterans of long years of serv ice, broken down by disease, wounds, and the infirmity of age. They are all neatly clothed in undress uniform, and that, in every case, is kept scru pulously clean. The buildings are beautiful and substantial, and, to use a familiar expression, are kept as “clean as a pin.” Of the grounds I can only say, there are none more elegant in or about the city. The drive ways, the beauti ful tre;s and shrubbery, miniature lakes, artificial streams spanned by rustic bridges, and grateful shade ev erywhere, all combine to attract great crowds of visitors who linger long be fore departing, then go again and again. In the National Cemetery are the graves of about 8,000 soidiers, nearly all volunteer soldiers of the War of the Rebellion. These are in regular rows, marked with the small marble head stones used in all these cemeteries,with a number and name, if the latter he known; if not, the number only. The sod that covers them is smooth and green, and is kept neatly trimmed. This alone impresses an old “Vet” with the thought that, though dead they are not forgotten, at lea/it by the Govern ment. Near one of the principal entrance gates of the Soldiers’ Home stands the beautiful tombs where reposes all that is mortal of my old commander, Gener al John A. Logan. As I approached the tomb, I doffed my hat, and viewed through the barred door the Hag-draped, wreath-covered casket that contains his remains. Inside the tomb is a large number of the funeral wreaths, crosses and other emblems used at his inter ment, apparently as perfect and fresh as when first made, while on top of the casket are vases with freshly cat, beautiful and fragrant flowers,renewed daily, by whom I did not learn. I visited a saloon on Pennsylvania avenue the other night, known as Han cock’s. It is owned and kept by a lineal descendant of the John Hancock, who first signed the Declaration of In dependence. It was established in 1840, and it was there that Webster, Clay, Calhoun, and other great men of the nation used to meet and drink. Within its walls is a recollection of relics that cannot, many of them, be duplicated in the world, and to be fully appreciated they must be seen. I passed nearly two hours, and then did not get half through. It would delight a newspaper man to ex amine the copies of old papers to be seen there, alone, to say nothing of many other articles space forbids men tioning now. Mr. Palmer does not equal “Ret” in his use of the axe, but he is doing ex celllently well in that line, and the rose leaves are falling quietly but surely. He is gettiugabout hima more efficient class of men, and they are all Repub licans. Ybbnoc. Rats are almost crazy for sunflower seed. If you want to catch them, bait your trap with these seeds. From Thursday's Daily. «FALL JUBILEE! The Smiling Skies and Pleasant Weather Continue IOWA: To Bless the Great Autumnal The Great Thursday Crowd Comes Sweeping In, “Like the Waves Come When Ships Are Stranded, “Like the Winds Come When Forests Are Bended.” A GREAT DAY. This is the big Thursday of the Fair, and from the earliest hour there has been one constant and unbroken pro cession of teams coming in from all sections of the county—a great river of humanity moving to the enjoyment of the festival of harvest home. It promises to be one of the great days, and it certainly will be in every department of the Fair. We continue our report of notes from the field by our reporters, who swoop on them wherever it appears. SOME AWARDS. In single buggy horses or mares, the first premium was awarded to llawkius Bros, on a sorrel that was good, with Dr. Wilkins’ black a very close second. In the saddle horses the first was giv en to I. li. Hull, and in single carriage horses, the first went to the best all around horse in this section—that of L. L. Hull AMONG THE nOGS. In the line of Poland Chinas A. J. Lytle was a good winner. He took first r»nd second on aged sows; first on 4 pigs under tf months, and second on young boar. J. H.Woolson, Richland, took second on boar over 1 year old. John Lytle took first on boar 1 year old and over, first on boar under one year; first and second on sow under one year, and second on 4 pigs under 6 months. M. K. Prine Sc Son were given fifteen first and second winners on splendid Berkshire exhibit. W. A. Hoover was also awarded some fifteen first and sec ond premiums on his Chester White exhibit—which included some of the fine individuals ever shown on the ground. It is a fact that the individu al showing in the several classes has simply been up to the highest standard, and not be surpassed by the State Fair, save only in the immensity of uumbers. A GREAT HOUSE. The trotting horse, Frank P. Por ter, owned by Capt. Beckwith, of Mt. Pleasant, is a good horse. He is a son of Egbert, dam Puss by Brown Chief, and on Wednesday won in the 3.00 trot, in three straight heats, on a record of 2:27%, 2:28%, and 2:28. That beats any free-for-all trot in the lowa circuit this year, and the horse can do better than that. Prior to this race the horse won at Keokuk and Ottumwa, but has had but little track work outside of that coming to his work from the stud after forty-six engagements. That horse will yet make a record of 2:20 on a good mile track—and he will beat that be fore this season is over—just mark that down. A GOOD CHANGE. The gentleman who manages the score cards has introduced a good change in the cards and on the drivers. With each horse named goes a number, and that number is worn on the arm by the driver. He keeps that number no odds how many are drawn, and those who look on know exactly who is who, and where he gets in the trot or run. It is a good thing. A COMMENDABLE CHaNGE. The Secretary’s force is now located in a good building of its own, directly south of the old office. There the Sec retaries can do work on three sides at once. The old office has been given fora platform for the officers and the accom odation of the press. Being directly opposite the judges stand the place is just as good as can be for any man with a nose. SOMETHING PRETTY. The reader who has dwelt on the magnificent description of a running race, as found in “Ben Hur,” and the glory that it brings to mind of that splendid Roman period, cannot but take an interest in the "hoss race” of 1889—robbed as it is of the editiles.and all that magnificence that leaves that period in the world’s history unrivaled in grandeur. But Wednesday evening the closing event of the fair was a run ning mile dash between Frank Clapp, W ild Boy and Ramsey. They are horses who have been on the track for a good long time, and have records for speed surpassing even those of the Arabian that came in so handily in that old race. The horses were sent off in a bunch, and as they came down the half mile stretch they got a cheer that awakened things, but on the second half mile they gave each other room and Ramsey was was a winner. It was a race that was unusually pretty, and interesting But, say, it is a long way between that great race in the years B. C., and the great Fair of the Mahaskas, but horse races are just as popular now as they were then,—only now we take them as an addition to our agricultural shows sugar-coated, as it were, and not quite so frankly honest as they were in those old days. Then they had “hoss” races now they call ’em trials of speed. Roman or American we want to see ’em when they are good! It may be wicked but its honest! THE FIRST EXHIBIT Wednesday was that of the Springer & Willard Company, in sending a long procession of their Norman importa tions—showing them only that the people might see what they had. The people were satisfied that they had seen that which in horse flesh should rank high. FAIR NOTES. The following additions to the horses should be made: * In No. 27 Jaa. Courtney has a fine grade Norman] stallion, an excellent type of the grade. 8. Norris has a grade Norman brood mare with coltiby her No. 33, and In 87 he has a Bashaw brood mare with Norman colt by her side. W. A. McNeill has five head of high bred roadsters with;the grand Cham plain at the head. Champlain needs no introduction here, suffice to say that he is looking tine and his pedigree as all know is unequalled. Durango Maid, by Durango, has, a Champlain filly by her side that is a beauty. Next door is a yearling out of Champlain dam by Little Crow. Next comes Gertie H. by Champlain, a three-year old entered in the stake race. Festival. Herald. Mr. Ruett also has a fine brood mare with a Champlain colt. On the north side we find W. A. Cowan with a 3-year-old mare in road ster and standard classes, also a 3-year old filly in same class and a roadster brood mare and colt. C. M. Smith has a standard yearling filly and a team of buggy horses. E. L. Billingsley has several in his string. He has a 2-year-old all purpose filly, an all purpose brood mare and mare colt, a 2-year-old roadster filly and a horse colt in all purpose class. B. C. McLain, of Rose Hill, has a couple of all purpose fillies, that are fine lookers. OFFICIAL SUMMARY. The following is the official summary of Tuesday’s races: TWO YEAR OLD STAKE RACE. Swinock, b. s.

The Oskaloosa Cooperage Company shows a fine line of its work—barrels and butter tubs. M r . Jacobson has just opened out in this manufacture. Hawkins & Garretson make a string in Pianos and Organs, and from their quarter comes music in plenty. It was Mrs. Mark McCoy who made the collection of grasses having 35 varieties, and all but three being found on the Dixon place. What we said about Mark is heartily transferred to the good woman. W.F.Hinesley, who is as enterprising as the very best, is on the ground with his special building well filled with all that attracts the lover of good tobacco. You see “Special 47” everywhere. The Golden Eagle maintains a fine exhibit in its own building, with Mas ter Harry Loveridge in charge. Mrs. M. L Levi, as Superintendent of the Embroidery Work, has had a hard task to make a proper display of all the splendid work brought in. But she has made a display unequalled in the years that the fair has been held. Mrs. Peck, of Ottumwa, has made a very large display of fancy work of all kinds and very attractive. She has a section in the center. Henry Jones, ot Bonaparte, has a large exhibit. He shows 23 pairs of chickens, 43 pairs of pigeons, 7 of rab bits, 2 of ferrets, 3 ducks, 2 of geese, 6 of guinea pigs, 1 prairie dog. The pig eon and pet stock catch all. From Friday’s Daily. THE GREAT DAT! One of the Very Big Days of the Fair. Full Fifteen Thousand People Present, .Notwithstanding an Intensely Hot Day. Great Crowds and Great Dust, with Great Sweat! Silt the People Enjoyed the Fair, And the Show Went On. The Thursday of the fair proved to be one of the largest in the history of the society, the sale of tickets amount ing to 9,400, and it seemed as if the chil dren from every home had poured out to do honor to the occasion. It was a great day, and the crowd one of the most easily handled. No disorder of any kind occurred in any part of the ground. It was a crowd of intelligent lowa people, out for a day of pleasure, and they had it. In our experience with the grounds at every fair since 1881, we have never seen the gronnds so crowded and packed as they were on the south side Thursday. There it seemed next to impossible to move around, and the art hall was packed to suffocation. There was an enormous demand for water, and the wells were taxed as never before, but they held out. DESERVEDLY CANED. PRESIDENT PRINE HONORED BY THE society. For seventeen years Henry Prine has been in connection with the Agricul tural Society, as Secretary, Vice President, and President and a Director for a longer term than that. To his work he has always given that faithful attention that has brought good results, and no man con nected with the Society has more uni versally won popular esteem than he. He has always been a good citizen, leading and liberal, and for those forty years has lived an upright and blame less life here. To punctuate, as it were, the good esteem of his fellow officers, and also to give expression to the happy deliverance he has recently had from a runaway, his friends thought it wise and right, on behalf of the society, to present him with a gold headed cane, and a handsome one was procured by Secretary McFall, and on Thursday afternoon, when the crowd was greatest, the Secretary, in very fit words, presented the oane, and greatly to the surprise of the genial President. It was suitably inscribed, as coming from the Society, and for the best of all things that man can render—faith ful service. The presentation cere monies received the warm applause of all the many thousands who saw them. President Prine felt deeply the honor conferred upon him, and it cast a great deal of sunshine into his path of life —and that of a continuing character. It was a very happy thought that sug gested the testimonial, and all rejoice that the presentation was made under such happy auspices—in the crown of one of the best Fairs ever held. It is well.

In the Wednesday issue of the “Times Fair Daily,” in its report of the races, aud in speaking of the 2:30 trot, the flip reporter of that paper said: “The only thing which marred the day’s sport was the shameful robbery by which Leland Stanford was given fourth money instead of second money, which he fairly earned. It would have been no race at all if Leland had staid at fourth place.” He also said, in speaking of the third neat: * * “Here the robbery was consummated which was now plain. The driver of Tirzah is also the driver of Carey’s hone, and he was stealing second money for him.” The facts are that Mr. Maloney, who drove Tirzah, never at any time drove a hone belonging to Dr. Carey, on this or on r ? other track, and at the third heat H tecond money had been settled as fat Leland Stanford was oon ceiiie|| Mrzah being the only other to look Wjfrp. The judges in the stand were Mf McNeill and Capt. Beckwith, of Mt. 1\ Asant, and they tint and fully concurred in the judgment given on the several heats. Dr. Carey acted as starter, but the judgment was made unanimously. Dr. Carey has been here for four years past—his entry last year, “Lorene,” making the fastest mile over the track ever made here, being 222& He is evidently free from every blame FRUITS. G.

The gentlemen who make the rounds of the circuit, and contribute so much to the pleasure of the crowd, should have the protection of the press, rather than be made the victims of unjust and unfair assaults. THURSDAY’S RACES. The races Thursday were interest ing, though they were not as spirited and exciting as they should have been, ol as they could have been made by the contestants. The 2:35 trot and the running race smacked very strongly of having been slated before the horse left the stalls, and while this kind of work is discouraged by all rules, and all judges, and all people loving the fair sqaare race, yet it seems to be a some thing that will crawl into the races from the opening of the season till the closing of the same, and in all circuits and on all tracks. The 2:35 trot for a purse of S4OO was the first called, and six good stai ters—any one of which is well able to lower the record made at least 10 seconds—were sent away in a bunch and thus they remained to the quarter pole when they began to string out. The trotting was even and “square trod,” but the horses were not crowded. The summary of the three heats is as follows: Plckpenny i i \ Mod ace 2 2 2 Pocahontas Maid 3 5 6 Beeswax 4 6 6 Two Eyes 5 4 3 Clifton’s Bashaw 6 3 4 Time: 2:27H, 2:33*, 2:30. THE COUNTY STAKE RACE came on next, and it was a good race, and local enthusiasms ran high, for each horse.had its “cranks,” and this race has been talked of and the pos sibilities of the winners and the time predicted since early spring and now was the deciding point as to the favor ite, the short horse, the ’‘he’ll surprise you,” and the “no good” horse. Ten entries were made but only six started, Mary 8., Ruth Scott,Darling and Maxie Barnes having been withdrawn. P. J. E. was given the pole and after some scoring “Go” was called on a very pret ty start. Near the quarter pole they became bunched and Nellie McMahon was thrown from her feet to the ground, the driver thrown from his seat, but no serious damage or hurt sustained. About the same place in the second heat another bunching threw the driver of P. J. E. and that horse given his freedom went round the track to the judges’ stand a la Victor D. style. Here P. J. E. was stopped and he very prettily trotted his second half. A summary of this race is: Big McMahon 1 1 i H. H. Prine, owner. Tam O’Shanter 2 2 3 H. B. Nelson, owner. Jene 3 4 4 Fleck Bros., owner. P. J. E 4 e 5 P. J. Ellsworth, owner. Kate 8 5 5 e . George Miller owner. Nellie McMahon e 3 3 L. A. Swearingen, owner. Time: 3:1014,3:03. 2:54*. THE RUNNING RACE for a S2OO purse—% mile heats, 2 in 3 —brought out three good horses, and the attempt to hold one horse back and let the other win, gave !the race an apparent closeness and excitement went high. The result was: Kate Bensberg 2 2 Jessie McFarland 2 l 1 Mike Whiting 3 <1 Time: 1.18>>4, 1:20, 1=22. FRIDAY’S RACES. In the 2:50 trot there were four en tries for a purse of S4OO. ..The first heat was an interesting one, the horses coming under the wire in the follow ing order: Pilgrim, Billy Mont, Leon idas and Captain Edwards. Time, 2:37%. In the second heat the horses came under the wire in the same order as in the first heat. Time 2:40%. The third heat and race was won by Pil grim. Time, 2:41%.

Two years ago—the Saturday follow ing the County Fair in 1887— The Daily Herald was launched, and every week day it has appeared, and been delivered to several hundred homes in this city. For all that support we are very thankful, and beg to say that our friends are appreciated. In one particular have the columns of The Daily Herald failed to present the business interests of the city as fully as they should. That is found in our advertising columns. In our Fair Daily nearly all our busi ness men were fully represented, and many strangers who saw the Fair Daily were most complimentary to their enterprise and life. In to-day’s issue we transfer to our regular daily columns some of the ad vertisements—as many as we have room for, only to illustrate how hand some, thrifty and solid the daily would look were these advertisements con tinued right along. Let us say here that The Daily Herald has become an established institution, and that it finds a warm welcon ein many homes. Yet withal it will take just such favors to make it prosper and develope as it should. We hope to win a better, stead” ad vertising patronage for thesv a ns —and in so doing we only render*. t er service to the city and county A QKNBR4f‘- ALOKR.
