ENTERTAINING FICTION.
One advantage of reading a serial
story ina daily newspaper is that an
installment of convenient length is
received every day that does not con
sume an undue amount of the reader's
time. An installment of a highgrade
serial story appears in every issue of
The Chicago Record Herald, a popu
lar feature of that enterprising Chica
go daily. Among the successful
stories which have recently been en
joyed b)y Record-Herald readers are

ard Harding Davis; "TTheThLall of
.Leif, the Lucky," by Ottilie I.ilgen
craatz; "Tristram of Belt,"by An
thony Hope; "When Knighthood
Was in Flower,"by tCharles Major;
Thompson, and "Graustark," by
George B. MlcCutcheon. Every is
sue contains also a short Illustrated
"human interest" story on the edi
torial page. Readers of The Record
Herald can depend npon a never
failing source of pleasant entertain
ment in the note worthy fiction that

umns.
Saved His Life.
J W Davenpcrt. Wingo, Ky., writes
Juhe 14, 19o2: "'I believe Ballard's Snow
Liniment saved my life. I was under
treatment of two doctors and they told
me one of my lungs was entirely gone
and the other badly affected. i also had
a lump in my side. I don't thing that I
could have lived over two months longer;
I was induced by a friend to try Ballard's
Snow Liniment; he firstiapplication gave
me great relief; two fifty cent bottles
cured me sound and well. It isa wonder
ful medicine and I recommend it to suffer
ing humanity." 25c, 50c, $1. For sale at
Godard's drugstore.
The Great Drawback--"The Bi
ble says we should take a littlegwine
for;the stomach's sake." "Yes; but
the trouble~is that when we do athat
we always feel as if our hearts and
livers and legs and other things be
longing to us would get jealous if we
dinu't take some for their sake, too."
-Chicago Record Herald.

G W Wrirt, Nacogodohes, Texas, says:

that wouid help her till he used Herbine
His wife will not keep house without it,
and cannot say too much for it. 50 cents

A farmer tells the Sedalia Capital
that he rid his farm of rats in the fol
lowing manner: "On a .very large
number of pieces of old shingles, 1
put about 1-2 a teaspoonful of mo
lasses, and on that'with my pocket
knife, I scraped a very small amount'
of concentrated lye, and then placed
this old shingles around under the
stable floors and under the cribs.
The next morning, I found forty
dead rats and the rest vamoosed the
farm and left for parts unknown. I
have cleared many farms of the pests
in the same way and have never
known it to fail."

The [Best Doctor.
Rev R C Horton, Sulphur Springs..Tex
as. wiites July 16, 1869: "1 have used in
my family Ballard's Snow Liniment and
Horehound Syrup and they have proved
certainly satistactory. The liniment is
the best we have ever used for headache
and pains. The cough syrup has been our
doctor for the last eight years." 25c, 50c,
$1 at Godard's drugstore,
The anti-trust laws are not enforc
ed, says Judge Parker. He might
have truthfully added, that they will
not be as long as the Republican par
ty continues in power.
A Thoughtful Man.
M M Austin of Winchester, Ind., knew
what to do in the hour of need; his wife
had such an unusual case of stomach and
liver troubles. physicians conld not help
her; he thought of and tried DIr King's
New Life Pills and got relief at once and
was finally cured. Only 2.5c at all drug
stores.
The country paper heads an arI'I
cle, "Are we prepared for war"'
Now speaking for Truth we nmust s:t,"
no! We have had enough war and it
spare, but then Louisiana is not altr,
gether devoid of warlike characters.
She has John C. Wickliffe, VV. S.
Pakerson and a host of others who
would rather fight than 'a't. These
gents are ready for war at all times
and not particular whether the war be
waged against a few Italians cooped
up in the parish prison, unarmed and
unprocted, or against the government
of their o.oa State. These gentle
men, at least, can give an affirmative
auswer to the question, "Are we
prepared for war."
Robbed the Grave:
A startling incidenlt is jlarrated lby Johna
Oliver of Philadelphia as follows: "I was
in an awful conidition ; my skin was al
most sellow, eyes sunkeln, tongue coated,
pain contilnuallly in baca and sides. no
appetite, growing weaker every day.
Then I was advised to use Electric Bit
ters; to my great joy the first bottle made
adecided Improvement; I conltinued theif
use for three weeks and am now a well
moan. I know they robbed the grave of
another victim." No one should fail to
