The Marietta Daily Leader.
TUESDAY, JUIiY 23, 1001.
Personal ancl Pertinent.
It Is just as easy to drift into danger
us to drive into it. The progress is slower
out tuc cntt is equally sure, it is me
gradual progress of drifting which blinds
to the danger. Men and women drift into
ill-health in such a way. There is a
little feeling of oppression after eating.
After a time it passes away. Some day
it returns and brings another symptom
headache, perhaps. Something is done
to relieve the headache, but nothing to
relieve the cause. So one 'more victim
goes drifting on to the rocks of disease.
Young women who are teaching or
Btudying are very apt to become victims
of disease of the stomach. They cat in
judiciously, in some cases, and in gen
eral the brain is too occupied to allow
the stomach the blood necessary to carry
on its functions. Hence in time the
organs of digestion and nutrition are
totally deranged, and the young gradu
ate goes home a chronic invalid.
The timely use of Dr. Tierce's Golden
Medical Discovery will avert such a con
dition ; the faithful use of it in chronic
cases will effect a complete cure.
" I was troubled with very frequent headaches,
often accompanied by se ere vomiting," writes
Miss Mnry Dellc Summerton, of San Diego, Duval
Co., Texai. "llowclt were Irregular and my
tomacIi nntl liver seemed continually out of
order. Open I could eat almost nothing, and
nometlme absolutely nothing, for twenty-four
hours at a time. I was entirely unBt for work,
and my whole system seemed so run down that
I feared n severe sick spell and was very much
discouraged. I was advised to try Dr. Pierce's
tiolden Medical Discovery, and before finishing
the third bottle I was able to undertake tlie du
ties of public school life, nnd contracted to do so."

The almost total disappearance of
the otd-fuHliioned "buU'n-eye" silver
watches Is n Hollree of wonderment
to even some watch dealers, It is
practically impossible to pick up one
now nmuug them. A Chicago Trib
une reporter made the roundn of the
watch, pawn and junk shops in quest
of one of tho.se old timepieces, nnd
did not find it. One dealer said he
knew where a single specimen was,
but Inter udmltted that the owner
either had sold or lost It. A veteran
watchmaker, who can ninko a watcli
by hand, in referring to the disap
pearance of the "bull's-eyes," said:
"It Is only natural, I suppose, that
they should disappear. None of them
were ilrst-class timepieces. I mean
that the best of them would vary
as much an a minute a week". The
cheaper machine-made watches keep
better time and cost less. The first
of these old 'bull's-eyes' carried the
regulation Virdge movement. One
hundred years ago the Virdge
watches were oa-rried by all business
men. Later the English watchmakers
made 'bull's-eyes' with improvements
on the Virdge movement, t haven't
seen a Virdge for two or three years.
As a matter of fact, those old-fashioned
key-winding silver watches are
worth only what the silver In the
cases amounts to. The metal repre
sents about a dollar in value. Th.
works are worthless. Only one or
two smalt wheels are taken out by
the dealers. Sometimes they are
useful In repairing family heirlooms.
What are they worth? Why. nothing
at all as timepieces. The best way
to get one is to keep on inquiring
among the grandfathers and great
uncles until you run across one, and
then beg it or buy it. It is practical
ly worthless, except ns a relic."
"Yon Sell Gootls Too GiieaD"
A
was the remark made by a
sensible young business man,
in conversation with one of
our representatives, the other
day. ' Many people know
This Is True,
but now and then there "bobs
up" a skeptical mind who de
clines to be convinced, and he goes elsewhere.
For instance, the other day a certain party went about one
hundred miles and bought a piano, paying for it $50 more
than we even asked for the SAME PIANO. Funny, isn't it ?
WE HAVE,
so far as we can learn, the largest variety of medium priced
and high grade pianos carried by any firm west of New York.
Better see us if you want one.

Reports are reaching civilization of
the operations of the past whiter in
the interior and upon he coast of
Labrador. The season was, generally
speaking, a mild one, nnd the fatali
ties among the Indians fewer than
usual, n good supply of furs was se
cured, hut none of such peculiar value
as some of those taken during the
preceding winter, says the New York
Sun.
The highest priee paid for a single
skin 'of last winter's catch was $100,
which was for a black siher fov, the
king of all the fur-bearing animals of
Labrador. Exactly double that amount
was paid for a skin of the same va
riety, a very noble specimen, about a
vi'.nr nn-o. Prices in ceneral are
scarcely so good at present as they
were this time last year.
Marten skins, which have brought
as much as $25 a skin, sold this spring
for from $1.1 to $18. Traders are es
pecially proud of the otters nnd
minks which they obtain from Lab
rador, which have fur of a peculiar
fineness and luster.
The hunters from the interior of
Labrador had not heard of the death
of Queen Victoria until they emerged
from the woods a few days ago. No
mail matter can reach them during
the winter. Even the residents along
the coa'st had only six mails from
autumn till spring, and these had to
be conveyed oer the snow by dogs,
on sleigh's, for want of proper roads
and other means of conveyance.

Sikes has moved with the times, and in
order to relieve his neighbors of their
goods uses his brains as well as brute
strength. What may be culled the
electric confidence triek. as recently
practiced in the streets of Madrid,
shows that its inventor. is a man of
genius ns well as crime.
This thief, who has just been arrest
ed, was distinguished above others of
his profession by the perfect ion of ins
garments and appearance. In a
pooket of his elegantly fitting coat was
concealed the secret of his success. It
was a powerful little electric battery,
joined by wires to a metallic plate,
which he held in the palm of his right
hand. Approaching his intended vic
tim with outstretched hand lie would
greet him with the fervor of nn old
friend.- Woe betide the unlucky man
If he accepted the proffered hand
shake. A sharp electric shock ren
dered h'm powerless, and with a few
deft movements lie was stripped of
watch, purse and jewelry.

More nnd more eaeli year Americans
are finding out the attractions of our
own country, and as they grow to real
ize the charm of life among the Colo

travel west instead of east for health
and recreation. The railroads, too, are
alive to the new conditions and have
madelowertouristrates this year than
ver before, And then the train time
has been 'vastly improved, so that now
