Beware of Ointments for Catarrh
that Contain Mercury
as mercury will surely destroy the sense of smell
and completely derange the whole system when
entering it through the mucous surfaces. Such
articles should never be used except ou prescrip
tions from reputable physicians; as the damage
they will do is ten fold to the good you can pos
sibly derive from them. Hall's Catarrh Cure,
manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co.. Toledo, O.,
contains no mercury, and is taken internally,
acting directly on the blood and mucous surfaces
of the system. In buying Hall's Catarrh Cure
be sure you get the genuine. It is taken inter
nally and made in Toledo, Ohio, by K. J. Cheney
& Co. Testimonials free.
Sold by Druggists. Price 75c per bottle.

Washington, Oct. 6.- Woodrow
Wilson the President of the United
States, announced to-night his en
gagement to Mrs. Norman R. Gait,
of Washington. The date of the
wedding has not been fixed, but it
probably will take place in Decem
ber at the home of the bride-elect.
The brief announcement from the
White House made by Secretary Tu
multy came as a surprise to official
Washington, but to a number of in
timate friends it long had been ex
pected. From this circle came to
night the story of a friendship whose
culmination was viewed as, a happy
turn in the troubled and lonely life
of the nation's chief executive.
It was Miss Margaret Wilson and
her cousin, Miss Helen Woodrow
Bones, who drew Mrs. Gait into the
White House circle. They met her
in the early autumn of last year and
were so much attracted by her that
they sought her out more and more
frequently. Mrs. Gait spent a
month this summer at Cornish as a
guest of the President's eldest
It was thru the intimacy of his
daughter and cousin with Mrs. Gait
that the President had an oppor
tunity to meet and know her. One
of the most interesting facts about
the engagement, indeed, as told by
friends, is that the President's
daughters chose Mrs. Gait for their
admiration and friendship before
their father did.
