The Influence of Diet on
Principles.
It is not to be denied, however,
that the products of maize have
been losing popularity i n this
country; they seem to be going
out of fashion ; they are a little
too coarse for the tender throats
of the generation that has come
and the one that is coming. The
tastes of the people are growing
somewhat different; patent rned
icines and pred:gested foods,
made of nobody knows what,
seem to go together, and with
these have como new forms of
indigestion, dyspepsia, nervous
diseases, and new causes of wor
ry. There is an idea in the minds
o! the new generation that corn,
and all the varieties of food—all
the toothsome dishes that are de
rivable therefrom, are to be left
to those whose tastes are com
mot), and whose associations
must be low. This, consciously
or unconsciously, is the view ol
a consmerame munuer 01 must
who are to take up the destinies
of the Republic and carry them
a little way on their King jour
ney; and this is curious, too.
when we think of the nature ol
our political fabric. Are we tc
change our principles and beliefs
by means of a change of diet?—

Col, Brygn's Ilfustrated Book
of Travel.
The success of Col. Bryan’s
new book, “The Old Would and
Ixa Wats,” gives striking lesti
mony to his hold on the populist
mind. It recounts and prolusely
illustrates his recent journey
around the world. It lias b 11
issued five mouths, and we are
advised that, in that short period,
tour large editions aggregating
41,000 copies have been called
tor. The reports of agents, which
have been submitted to us, would
indicate that the demand ior it is
well nigh spontaneous and uni
viral—that it exceeds that ior
any other book published ior the
subsetiption trade since the per
i >d ot “Grant’s Memoirs.” Col.

depends upon no sympatbet c
clement for its strength. But t
has i n the part ot the people the
enduring feeling of personal con
fidence in the great moral and jn
tellectual integrity ot its author.
It has an equally pronounced
admiration tor his brilliant ubtili
ties, and the untiring energy that
enabled him to cover the world
in his noted tour—and to photo*
graph and describe it in his inim
itable way. Wi t h o u t official
place Cob Bryan is everywhere
regarded, at home and abroad, as
a vital force in American affairs.
As a student ot men and govern
ment, and of governmental con
ditions, his observations and con
clusions profoundly interest the
people. Hence the great sale ot
his 1)00 K, aescripuvn ui men ttim

curative powers. In all forms of diseases peculiar to females, this water will be
found to exert a curative influence, second to none in ] trginia.
I have given your Concentrated Water a fair trial, and say with pleas- S
ure I have been greatly benefited. For some years I have suffered more or g
less with Indigestion, followed by Constipation and other attendant ills. I
Within the past two months I have found such relief from your remedy S

able to do before for years. R„;v 0?!f,AR JATTLETOX, '

Since 1894 I have been afflicted with Chronic Diarrhoea. About six |
months ago I commenced using your Concentrated Iron and Alum Water *
with the most wonderful and satisfactory results. For three or four years H
past I have been deprived of the privilege of visiting friends or going to ■
church, as my trouble kept mo in constant apprehension, having lo«t almost a
entirely the control of my bowels; but now I am happy to state tost alter 3
using about a half dozen bottles of your remedy T am entirely cured, not ^
iiaving used any for the last four months. I can confidently and most glauly A
recommend your remedy for Chronic Diarrhoea.

I was an intense sufferer for some months with Indigestion, and could jfjj
