Young people, open air exercise is

There Is a groat dilferonco between the
times of then and now. Fashion has

When it comes lo attendance at

question which we hear asked quite

There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until tbo last few
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease, and proscrib
ed local remedies, and by constantly
failing to cure with local treatment,
pronounced it incurable. Science has
proven catarrh to bo a constitutional
disease, and therefore requires consti
tutional treatment! Hall's Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. .1. Cheney &
Co.. Tolodo, Ohio, is the only constitu
tional cure on the market. It is taken
internally in doses of from 10 drops to a
teaspoonful. It acts directly on the
blood and mucous surfaces of the sys
tem. They oiler one hundred dollars
for any case it fails to cure. Send for
circulars and testimonials.

"The County Judge was a man
weighing Iuu pounds. Steel, wl
kept the local hotel, summoned a jury
for a term, and not one of the jurors
weighed less than 2.0 pounds. On
the first case called Steel fed the
jurymen on a dinner consisting ol
plenty of onions, buttermilk and oth
er soporific fooK, with the result
that iu the afternoon all of them and
the judge went to ieep.

The uneasiness after eating, fits of nerv
ous beaduebe, sourness of the stomach, and
disagreeable belching may not be very bad
now, but they will be if the stomach Is
