AMERICUS, GA., NOV. 11. 1800 No matter what did it, it is done. The gold men will say silver did it. Aren’t there lots and oodles of “I told yon so’s” ? Mr. Bryan wants to know how" bad it all is before he speaks. Now let us enjoy that prosperity and the full dinner pail. We can all stand on the prosperity platform, if the prosperity is genuine. If the republicans are right, and, as David Crockett would say, know they are right, then go ahead. It is dollars to doughnuts that when the Senate meets after March 4th next that Tillman and his pitchfork will en gage m some lively scrimmages with Teddy and his teeth. The Augusta Chronicle rises to re mark that “Bryan has gone to join the distinguished triumvirate of orators who never reach the presidency—Web ster, Clay an Calhoun. ”d It appears that in the wreck caused by the Republican land slide the Dem ocrats have managed to get away with two United States Senators from Mon tana, two from Delaware and one - from Colorado. Japan is rapidly becoming one of the most enlightened nations of the earth. A wealthy citizen of that country has just ordered a complete American brewing plant shipped to him and set up for immediate operation. Senator Pettigrew talks of a new par ty, which maybe called the “social la bor” party. It is to such a party that Pettigrew ought to belong. He is an exemplification of the old adage “a lit tle learning is a dangerous thing.” He is a radical, a fanatic and is seemingly ignorant of the principles upon which a stable and just government is based. Richard Croker is quoted as saying: “No power on earth—nothing but death—can prevent Mr. Bryan from re maining the natural leader of the peo ple. Mr. Bryan will certainly be the leader of the Democratic party for years to come if he lives. He possess es the elements of the leader and his party has confidence in him, no matter if he is defeated. Defeat cannot shake that confidence. The drift toward the cites is the pro duct in some degree, at least, of the old desire to give as little as possible of hard labor to work of accumulating _ to approach as near as may be to the base ideal of living as near as one can without work. The real misery and unhappiness attending daily life—not the imaginary or exag gerated forms of discontent—are found in the cities, Today, as forever, in America, as elsewhere, the man is best and happiest who can make a liv ing for himself and his family from the “LEAVE IT TO Tfffc FAITHFUL ” Benatoi-A. O. Bacon, in a dictated interview to the Atlanta Daily News, has this to say in regard to the pro posed reorganization of the democratic party: “I believe in reorganization when ever necessary; but it should always originate with the faithful friends of the party. Without specifying the name of any one, I don’t think that de serters from the party should be quite so eager to take charge of its af fairs when arranging for the conflict which is so certainly upon us. We didn’t have the benefit of their assist ance when we faced the enemy; and when we arrange our lines for another battle, while we shall be glad to have the rank and file back without dis crimination these prominent deserters will only be allowed to take very ob scure positions m the rear ranks.” Was Coriolanus or his people un grateful ?

The work of the Cuban constitution al convention, which met in Havana Monday, will be followed with much interest. The majority of the dele gates favor absolute independence, bat as the work of the convention is subject to the approval of Congress, and since Congress, although p’edged to give Cuba independence, is also pledged to establish a safe and orderly govern ment in Cuba, there is some doubt whether independence will be insisted on by the covention at this time It is thought the convention will be of long duration, for as one familiar with Cuban affairs expresses P, “The contests over seats by several delega tes will not be the easiest problem for solution. Each delegate must have his say,yon know,and only those acquaint ed with the Southern love for public declamation can have any conception of how much time each delegate will take. Their heads are nearer the sun than yours of the North. ” It is generally believed the manner of government framed will be pattern ed aftertbat of the United States,and it may be the convention will ask the United States to continue her protect orate over this island in order to guard Cuba’s foreign relations and preserve peace in the interior. NEW USE FOR COTTON The invention of a process by which cotton seed hulls may be converted into superior paper furnishes a quick and prime market for this part of the plant, equal to that which exists for the lint. The inventor, Mr. R. Thomas, now living in New York, writes a letter to Colonel William A. Hemphill, in which he recalls himself as a former Atlantian, who is still well remembered. He has passed through the experimental stages of his process, and now, fortified by ample capital which he had no difficulty in securing, he is about to erect mills, the first one of which he promises to Atlanta. This invention surpasses the usual discovery of skill, because it enhances with great value the cotton plant, which already commands so large a share of the commercial world. Paper is one of thequickest articles of merchandise,be ing consumed as soon as made, and commanding heavy prices. The fact that the cotton seed hull can be applied to this purpose gives it a market of in stant purchase. FALLING STARS. It will be remembered that it was predicted this time last year that we would witness a meteoric shower “or falling stars” in the month of Novem ber. But the prediction was not ful filled. The “stars” didn’t fall, and it is now said that a mistake of twelve months was made in the prediction of last year but that the shower will cer tainly come m this, the present month of November. We shall see. Prosperity is promised but it is not going to continue if the south lays down and goes to sleep. Det our peo ple go to work and establish indus tries, among which should be cotton mills. 4* ” ever * ny the blood is polluted and the system thoroughly con taminated by this deadly virulent poison. Then a sore or ulcer appears on some part of the body; it may be small and harmless looking at first, but as the can cerous cells form and are deposited by the blood near the sore, it increases in size and severity, with sharp shooting pains. No matter how often the sore is removed by the surgeon’s knife or flesh destroying plasters, another comes and is worse. The real disease is in the blood, and the treatment must begin there. The poisoned blood must tie invigorated and purified, and when this is done cancerous cells can no longer form and the sore will heal naturally and permanently. Mrs. Sarah M. Keesling, 041 Windsor Ave., Bristol, - Tenn., writes: “I am z,i years old, an! for three years had suffered with a severe form of Cancer on my jaw, which the doctors said was incurable, and that I could not live more than six months. I accept- / ed their statement as true, 7 and had given up all hope '1 of ever being well again, when my druggist, knowAg ingof my condition.recom- tj mended S. S. S. After tak- f ing a few bottles the sore began to heal, to the surprise of the physicians, and in a short time made a complete cure.

Raleigh, Nov. 10.—A negro convict, Edward Hill, was put in the peniten tiary here to serve five years for killing his wife. His defense was that she was trying to run away. He pursued and caught her. There was a struggle, she fell, and he fell urwn her, breaking her spine. The sheriff, who brought Hill here from Tyrell county, says there are grounds for believing his statement true and that public sentiment is in his favor. Arms and Ammunition Seized.

How this Dread Disease May be Prevented and Cured—The Greatest of Specialists Writes on the Subject. Catarrh Is the mother of consumption. By this I do not mean that every case of catarrh Jo velopes into consumption, but I fdo mean that catarrh when un checked, and when given the proper opportunities for exten sion from its place of beginning, which is the nasal passages, deeper and deeper along the breathing tract, invariably ends In Consumption of the Lungs. Catarrh seldom destroys any considerable part of the mucous surface of the upper air pass ages; it inflames and congests them, causing usually a super abundant and offensive dis charge • but when ft reaches the intensely delicate linmguif the hair-like lung tubes and little lung _celiß, the inflamation and congestion which it causes, closes these small air passages and, allowing the putrid discharged matter to a rot ting away of the membrane, resulting in what we call Consumption of the Lungs. THE TENDENCY OF CATARRH. The tendency of catarrh, when It has once obtained a foothold in any portion of the mucous membrane which lines every cavity of the body, is to constantly extend i n every direction. Catarrh in almost every Instance starts with what is commonly known as cola In the bead. This cold is added to by another, because of some extra exposure or weakening of the system and becomes chronic. Nasal catarrh is the result. Unless a radical cure of this condition is effected, the disease passes rapidly to the throat, to the bronchial tubes, and then to the lung8 ‘ NEW LUNGS. Consumption cannot be cured. New lungs cannot be made for a man any more than new fingers or a new nose; but catarrh can be curedin all its stages except this Anal and always fatal one. A CERTAIN CURE. In an experience of twenty years, during which time I have treated many thousands of cases of all forms of catarrh, I have never yet failed to effect a radical and permanent cure. The method I employ is one exclusively mv own, and the remedies which I use are prepared under my personal direction in my own laboratories. . „ .. . Many people imagine they have Consumption when in realitv the disease has not quite reached that stage. l am treating and curing cases of this sort every dav. So long as the process of decay has not begun in the lungs themselves, lean make the patient perfectly well and strong again. BEGIN AT ONCE. Let me once more urge all catarrhal sufferers to begin treatment at once, for a month of treatment now is better than the three months later on. I shall make for the next month a specially low fee for the treatment of catarrh not complicated by other diseases, making no extra charge tor all med icines, etc., that may be required. J.
