Thousands Die of it Every Year. Kidney disease is the enemy we have most to fear as a result of the feverish restlessness of modern civilization. It is a treacherous enemy, working out its deadly effect under cover of the most trifling symptoms. The first indication of changes in the urine, frequent head aches, digestive troubles, should be the signal for prompt remedial measures. Prickly Ash Bitters is a kidney remedy of the greatest merit; it is soothing, healing and strengthening, quickly re lieves the aching or soreness that always appears in advanced stages, checks the progress of the disease and through its excellent cleansing and regulating effect in the stomach, liver and bowels, it brings back the strength and ruddy glow of vigorous health. Accept no substitute. Insist on having the genuine Prickly Ash Bitters with the large figure 3 ia red on the front label. Sold Everywhere, Price $1.00 per bottle, cents and the proceeds of the lecture were about $75, which is far ahead of the law practice of $5,000 yearly, testified to by the defen : ant in the Judsonia trial. Mr. Dunaway ran across the surveying party of the Leslie ex tension of the North Arkansas road while at Heber and says the corps will reach Searcy soon. Mr. Dunaway goes to Marianna next week, from which point he will give a full report to his most excellent paper of the proceed ings of the Roberts trial. NEGRO LOCATED NEAR RISON. Robert Blackwell Who Assaulted White Woman Believed to be Surrounded in Sawmill. Pine Bluff, April 6.—Sheriff James Gould received a message from Rison last night stating that Robert Blackwell, the negro who committed the assault on Mrs. James Mitchell near here last week, had been located at a saw mill near Rison, and Deputy Sheriff Dyer left on the midnight train to make the arreet. Dyer will not bring the negro to Pine Bluff. Blackwell was traced to the vicinity of Rison on the next day after the commission of the crime by Deputies Dyer and Bo no, but was not captured because he was aided in his hiding by other negroes and relatives. One negro deputy, however, has been hunting for Blackwell ever since, and last night he tel ephoned that he thought he had located his man. Blackwell will probably be cap tured and brought to this city next week if it is thought he will escape lynching. TO THE INSURING PUBLIC.
