The National 1 democratic Exrc

The Clarion-Ledger says that
it has been suggested that all the

Secretary Carlisle has sent in
his report to Congress on the fi

Mr. Cleveland said in his message
on the opening of Congress, and

Judge Allen (i. Thurman died
at his home in Columbus, Ohio, on
the 12th of this month at the age
of 82 years. He was one of the
ablest jurists and statesmen this
country ever produced, and his
private and public character was
without a spot or blemish. The
whole country has sustained a
great loss in the death of A. G.
Representative Barrett, of Mas
sachusetts, created quite a sensa
tion in the lower house of Congress
by introducing resolutions demand
ing the impeachment of Ambassa

ernment in England, for certain
language used by Mr. Bayard in a
recent speech delivered by him in
England and Scotland which lan
guage Mr. Barnctt claims was an
insult to the American people.
The resolutions are generally re
garded as buncombe and that prob

Mr. Cleveland has sent a special
message to Congress with refer,
ence to the trouble between Eng
land and Venezuela concerning
certain territory now in the pos
session of the latter country and
which the former claims as belong,
ing to her, in which he vigorously
sustains the Monroe Doctrine,
which means that' England must
submit to arbitration or fight. Ev
ery true American citizen will sus
tain the President in this position
even if it results in war, which
tvent, however, we do not antici
pate, as we believe that when
lingland sees that the American
people stand firmly on the Monroe
doctrine and are willing to fight
(or its principles she will consent
to an equitable adjustment of the
ow nership o4 the disputed territory.

such a dilapidated conditio that
it is hardiy lit for ue. The in

essary to 'pay off the bonds will be
so small that it will hardly be felt,
and in fact, as we believe the erec

increase the value of our real es

present rate of taxation would not

we are fally abreast with the prog

good people who are deprived of
school facilities to move in among

be many years before we will have

school in the State has an abler

could not build up one of the

its Washington news says that
speeches are promised on different
subjects before the Senate, and
among others on Senator Better's

Mrs. Mary C. Moore was born
in Anderson District, S. C, in
Nov. 1S31, and married Mr. H. I'.
Moore in this county in 184H, and
died in Kosciusko Dec. 17, 1895.
Mrs. Moore was a sister to M. A.
and B. A. Clark, of this county,
and has several brothers living in
Texas. She united with the Meth
odist church in 1843 and from that
time to the day of her death never
swerved from the path of a faithful,
dutiful Christian life. She was
deeply loved by all who knew her
as truly a mother in Isreal. To
her aged and sorrowing husband
and relatives we offer our deepest
sympathy in this sad affliction.
The funeral services were held in
the Methodist church here, con

Mrs. Ritnour was about 24 years
old and had been married about
two years. She was a most de
voted wife and zealous christian,
being a consistent member of the
Baptist church of this place. In
her last moments she said that the
future was clear before her, and
showed by unmistakable evidence
that she had made no mistake in
putting- her trust in her Saviour,
and no doubt she could have truly
said as the life tide w as fast ebbing
out "it is well with my soul." To
her sorrowing husband we extend

Deafness Caouot be Cured
by local applicitioo, as they cannot
reach the diseased portiou of the ear.
There is only one way to cure Deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness io caused by an inflamed con
dition ot the mucous lining of the Eus

flamed you huve a rumbling sonnd or
imperfect hearing and when it is en
tirely closed Deafness is the result and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its nor
mal condition, hearing will be destroy

caused by catarrh, which is nothio;
but an inflamed couditioa of the mu
