Those who have been keeping an eye on the exposition travel to Portland from Arkansas esti mate that at present fully 500 citizens of this state have already gone to that far away city to see the exposition and the country. A number of parties of half a dozen or more persons have gone from numbers of cities and towns in the state, taking advantage of tne low rates of fare offered by the railroads with opportunities to stop at various points of in terest in the great west. Ar kansas has no exhibit of pro ducts other than a good repre sentation of her citizenship.

As we are now t L toned with another visitation of the dreaded yellow fever it is wT! to remem ber the experiences >f the last occasion* In ail secX"U.~ where yellow fever made its appear ance it will be recalled that per sons who kept their stomach, liver and bowels strong and active were not affected by the disease; while others apparently healthy were stricken down. These latter were all more or less habitually constipated, bilious or victim's of bad digestion; as a re sult the blood became impure and the vital organs were unable to resist the deadly fever germs. Now is the time to prepare for what is to follow. Get your fam ily and yourself in shape to re sist the disease. You don’t know when you are exposed to it; every man you meet may be affected, and if you put your preparations off from day to day you may be too late. The sensi ble course is to begin at once taking Prickly Ash Bitters, that marvelous system regulator and blood purifier. Use it regularly everv dav. Half a wine-glassful each morning after breakfast will keep your bowels open and healthy; it will also strengthen the stomach and digestion, purify the blood and by stimulating the liver and kidneys all bile and uric acid impurities will be driver out of the body. In short,! it puts the system in perfect] order. Remember 1898. That was a record year for Prickly Ash Bitters. In the sections where it was used the most there were fewest cases of fever. You connot do better in this hour of danger than to make use of the means which experience has proven to be the best for fight ing off this terrible scourge. 78 DR. CHAS. E.
