The effic iency of Thedford's Black-Draught, th genuine, herb, liver medicine, li Touched for by Mr. W. N. Parsons, a grocer of this city. "It Is without doubt the best liver medicine and I don't believe I could get along without It I take It for sour stomach, head ache, bad liver, Indigestion, and all other troubles that are the result of a torpid liver. "I have known and used it for years, land can and do highly recommend it to every one. I won't go to bed with out it in the house. It will do all it claims to do.

Suppose that tomorrow you were going to buy a phonograph. How would you go about it ? You probably have a preference, gained through reading advertisements' and hearing the instruments of friends. But Its a pretty vague preference, isn't it? No foundation in real fact. Would you phone an order for that phonograph? No, you'd probably decide you ought to hear several other phonographs first. But as you'd hear demonstration after demonstration, you'd experience ever-growing doubt and confusion. Then finally you'd bethink yourself of our Edison Turn-Table Comparison and you'd wonder why you ever bothertd to match claims against claims, when here was a way to match music against music, and decide for yourself v which is the best phonograph. The beautiful surety and simplicity of our Edison Turn-Table Comparison never strikes people so forcibly as when they actually try to decide on a phonograph. It is the only scientific comparison in town, the only way in which you can hear the four leading phonographs play in the same room, from the same position, using recordings by the same artist. Why not hear it today? No obligation! A free service given in the spirit of service. Just ask for the Edison Turn-Table Comparison (given only on request). w CHAS.

Miss 1m ogene Jones. Nature's cleverest musical genius is the song bird, for interwoven among the mass of tones ara strands of as pure melody as ever grace'i the compositions of man. Indee 1 Long fellow expressed the superiority of bird harmonies over man-made mel odies when he wrote: "Do you ne'er think what wondrous beings these? Do you ne'er think who made them, and who taught The dialect they speak, where melodies Alone are the interpreters of thought? Whose household words are songs in many keys, Sweeter than instrument of man e'er caught!" Trees filled with feathered choirs, the vibrant notes of wandering May breezes, and the rythmical murmur of bubbling brooks, all blend into one. sublime symphony, emphasizing that springtime chants the richest harmonies of the year. Such a music filled universe stands ready to reward the listening ear, nor has mankind failed to enjoy and appropriate the' tones of nature. Mendelssohn's lilt ing "Spring Song," MacDowell's deli cately tinted tone poem, "The Robin Sing3 in the Apple Tree," and GriegX majestic "To Spring" are but three noble tribute among countless voic- lngs of praise from the music masters of humanity.
