CHILDREN ARE OFTEN LIVER LAZY Give Them Liv-Ver-Lax Instead of Hickory Oil. Spare the rod and put the child in good physical condition. He or will them perform the natural duties in a natural way. Too many children are given credit for laziness when their parents should be blamed for inatten tion to tbe child's physical condition. Over eating or malarial conditions -which induce laziness in the child can he quickly overcome by eliminating the poisons from the system from the liver and the bowels. Calomel used to be the only way. Medical science has produced a better remedy in GRIGSBY'S LIV-VER-LAX, a purely vegetable compound that does better work than calomel without any after effects or unpleasant conditions. Sold under absolute guarantee of money back by H. M. Oliver at 50c and $1.00 a bottle. For protection against imitations, each fcottle bears the likeness of L.K.Grigsby.

Every day of the year some man is sentenced to prison, leaving behind htm boys or girls or both who are at tbe mercy of the people of tbe com munity for clothing and food, shelter and education. The judge who pro- neunces sentence on the erring father and husband cannot concern himself about the mother and children who are thus left behind to shift for themselves. Justice must grind out her grist, the father must take his medicine for bis sinful ways. It is the business and common duty of the judge to see to it that tbe offender is sent to prison for the crime committed. It is, in fact, no one's business in particular what be comes of tbe wife and children of the convict, what they do for a living while the father is in jail. This condition of affairs, so very common everywhere in America, has puzzled the Christian peo ple for a long time. Hundreds of convicts with whom the workers of the Samaritan Christian Army have talked have begged them to do something for their children, to keep them if possible out of the sinful ways of the street and city, to take them away somewhere, that they might be brought up among wholesome sur roundings and a healthy environment, j The outcome of the appeal has been the establishment of homes for these innocent victims of another's wrong doing, and at tbe present time the Samaritan Christian Army has twenty one homes and schools for convict s children. Tbe organization at tne present is working along the line of having the various States make some provision whereby tbe wife and children of a con vict will be taken care of. Tbe plan is rapidly gaining ground and a growing sentimert in favor of such legislation is being felt over the country.

Oliver's Red Cross Drug Store, Union The time is not yet ripe for a change in the policy toward Mexico, was tbe unanimous decision of the President's Cabinet. A demand that those respon sible for the murder of Ciemente Vergara at Nuevo Laredo be punished, was made by Secretary Bryan upon Gen. Huerta at Mexico City. The commission to examine the body of William S. Benton, executed by rebels, may leave for Chi huahua. Ranger Capt. J. J. Sanders, in a re port to Gov. Colquitt, said that Ciemente Vergara, the American ranchman, was shot while being transferred from Hidal go, Mex., to the Federal headquarters at Piedras Negras. Gov. Colquitt wired Secretary Bryan for information regard ing whom he should ask to surrender the men who stole Vergara 's horses. If Col. Goethals is willing the House Appropriations Committee probably will include in the Sundry Civil Bill a section giving the United States Government a monopoly on tbe canal business in the Panama Canal Zone. The fund derived from the sale of souvenirs by women at the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893, was definitely located when Mrs. Potter Palmer stated that it was in a safe deposit vault and amounted to $67,750. By a margin of one vote the Sen ate defeated tbe Bankbead Maximum Weight limit "rider" to the Post-office Appropriation Bill, which friends of tbe parcel post claim would have impaired that system.
