I wants my fo' teen cents back," cried an excited colored man rushing into a butcher's shop, "dat liver vou sola me was done sp'iled." The butcher silently forked over the amount and his mollified patron departed. "Say, what was the matter with that coon?" asked the clerk coming in from the "back room. 'Liver complaint," replied the butcher briefly, "Madame," said ttie tramp, "I hate to ask for charity, but 1 am starving. Not a mouthful has passed my lips for forty-eiglit hours. I am so hungry I could eat a raw dog." . "Poor man," said the lady ot the house in soft, sympathetic tones, "you must indeed be nearly famish ed and I am glad to have it in my power to relieve your suffering. We serve raw dog at all hours. Here, Tige!" A deep-toned growl from within indicated that his dinner was ready, but the tramp did not wait . Did You Ever Make Money Easy? Mr. Editor, I have read how Mr. C. E.

For the benefit of others I will state that I got my start from the Mound City Dish Washer Co., St. Louis, Mo. Write to them and .they will send you full particulars. I think I cau clear over 83,000 the coming year, and I am not go ing to . let the opportunity pass. Try it and publish your success for the benefit of others. J. F. C. HOPE. Hope isa compound of expecta tion and dnsire. We never hope for a thino that in itself is not de sirable. Hope is the mainspring to all human action. The student stores his mind with the treasures of knowledge in the hope of filling some high station in life. The mariner crosses the ocean in the hope of laying up a competance a1 gainst the day ot need. The hus bandman sows in hopes of reaping a harvert. So of every transaction in life. Hope is the grand stimu lator to every noble achievement, and is a balm for the varied ills to which flesh is heir. It is this principle that rendered our fore fathers so triumphant in their struggle for liberty, and enabled them to throw off the British yoke of oppression. They had hope in the darkest hour of their exis tence. Hope stands as a sentinel to guard our faith and keep it pure. Whenever we depart from the true faith, hope is disturbed and gives the alarm. How many there are who instead of cherishing a faith that nourishes their hope, destroys it, and fills the mind with the most painful sensations. Witness the believer in endless woe, his dark faith is at war with his hope. The parent may believe that a sou or a daughter will suffer through al! tprnit.v hut. rvin hi hnriH for 11? This system mocks at the tender e3t yearning of the soul, laughs at its holiest desires, and blasts its fondest hopes. No theory can be true that does not satisfy the wants of ouVsoul, and is the substance ol the things hoped for. Endless misery, therefore, is laise,tas it ..is no moie adapted to our moral na ture than poison to the body. We learn the nature of Christian hope by the description which the jn spired penmen give ot it. it is called a lively hope, purifying hope its anVanchor ol the soul, thisjjope embraces the whole human family. What a hrm loundation nave we on which to rest our hope, tne oath and promise of God to raise all the families of earth from the sleep of death to a state of -immortal blessedness. How excellent, how inspiring is this hope to souls distressed. tell me, bereaved friends, when you have seen some near and dear one fall prostrate in death, and the soul go home to its God, 0 tell me for what would you exchange your hope?

With perfect propriety may we call that excellent remedy, Salvation Oil, a timely friend. This liniment rapidly cures rheumatism, neuralgia and pains, when other remedies fail. Mr. Jno. M. Hall, Ashland, Va., writes : "I suffered with rheumatism in the ankle and the muscles connected therewith. Salvation Oil at once relieved the sore ness, reduced the swelling, and cured the pain. No other liniment that I ever used did me so much good." Vote" August Election in This Sen atorial District. D.

September 25th our buyer left for a three week's trip through the East ern and Northern states in search of merchandise for our Fall and Win ter trade. All the leading manufacturers and largest trade centres will be visited, and with the ready cash to discount every purchase, he will procure bargains for our trade. Our capacity to handle large quanti ties of goods will further aid him in securing the lowest possible prices on everything. In times of business depression, unfortunate manufacturers part with portions of their products far below cost of production. Their misfor tune is our opportunity. The ring of the American dollar brings prices to their lowest level. The word "credit" is repulsive to a great army of sellers, and finds no place in our business vocabulary. Saturday, Sept. 26, .marked the seventh mile post of our successful business in South Pittsburg. Seven years ago, Sept. 26, 1889, we began business here with less than $300 worth of goods, and our first day's sale was only $1.60. The people soon recognized our low prices und fair dealing and sales began to grow rapidly. The size of our store was then 20 feet wide and 30 feet long. A continued business growth for several years has enabled us to own and occupy now the largest and fin est store in the Valley. Our store is 50 feet wide and 140 feet long, two 6tories and basement, giving us 21,000 square feet of floor space. We thank all customers for their patronage in the past, and hope by our liberal policy of fair treatment and honest dealing to merit their trade in the future. We solicit trade of those who have not been our patrons in the past, and promise the same liberal, fair and honest treat ment. Yours truly, p. s. Our Fall Stock of all lines will soon be full and complete and prices below all competitors.
