ner, that of their intended victim is
J. L. Fletcher, who resides near Blen
nerhassett P. O., and on tho O. R. R.
Saturday night a bunch of withes

Knights of old crusaders who went to
conquer the world, could not hope to
succeed unless they were in virile, hearty
health. A man cannot face difficulties if
his stomach isn't in good dder. Dis
ordered digestion will make a sluggish
coward out of any man. It makes his
mind stagnant, and he cannot think
quickly enough to accomplish anything.
It makes his movements slow, and takes
all of the snap out of him. Every man
in business in America has a fight on his
hands just as tnuch as ever had beltei
knight. It is a matter of life and death,
just the same with him as it was with the
crusader. Indigestion and all the ills
that go with it, most frequently start in
constipation. That keeps all sorts of im
purities in the body, forces them into the
blood, and so deranges the whole system.
Constipation is one of the commonest
ills, and to it are traceable most of the
disorders that make people sick. Once
it gets a firm -hold on a man, it is most
difficult to overcome it. Temporary re
lief can be obtained in a thousand ways.
There are medicines on the market that
will help as long as you take them.
There is only one remedy that is a real
remedy that you don't have to keep on
taking forever. That is Dr. Pierce's
Pleasant Pellets. The "Pellets" are
tiny, sugar-coated granules, mild and
efficient in their action. They effect a
permanent cure. You don't become a
slave to their use, as with other pills.
If you will send 21 one-cent stamps to cover
cost of mailing only, we will send ou free the
most useful medical book extant. This is Dr.
