"Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is certainly a grand medicine for stomach trouble. I have suffered greatly all my life from a disordered stomach. My food eeemed to set so heavy, no matter what I ate. I have taken many of the medi cines advertised for this trouble, but none of them has ever come up to Golden Medical Discovery for giving frompfc and lasting relief. Whenever have a sluggish liver, with sick headaches and constipation, I have found Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets a very efficient remedy. They do not gripe or cause any other distressing condition such as a great many pills do." Mrs. Laura Kimbrough, 3503 JSrlene Avenue.

The issues of the coal strike, both in the anthracite and the bituminous districts, are so farfrom clear that it will be hard to decide, even when it is all over, whether anybody won or not, or whether there was any thing to win. ' The bituminous miners have voted to strike for a renewal of the existing wage scale; they have also agreed to meet the operators to discuss the matter. The operators, on the other hand, have refused to meet represent atives of the miners. They insist oil a strike. No doubt the men need all the wages they are receiving, yet the soft-coal industry is so much over manned, overcapitalized and overde veloped that there are not wages and profits enough to go around. Anthracite production is not over manned or mismanaged. It is one of the most profitable industries in the country and could almost certainly afford to pay a wage increase. But the anthracite miners are fairly well paid already. Though they are strik ing technically for more money, what they really wanted was a vacation, and the operators were quite willing to grant it in the hope of propping their summer market. If the bituminous operators win, then, it will mean that the union is broken and the miners are to work for less than a living wage. If the anthracite operators win, it will mean only that the vacation is over. If the bituminous miners win, it will mean that many union mines will have to go out of business be cause of the impossibility of com peting with the non-union fields a healthy deflation but accompanied by a lack of jobs. If the anthracite miners win, it will mean a raise in wages which is probably unneces sary. And in any case tne public will lose. New York World.

The Mississippi River has fallen three inches, and will continue falling. With the river falling every one here now feels that the worst is oyer, but every precaution will continue to be taken until the river has fallen below danger line on levees. The C. M. & G. Railroad, .operating be tween Hickman and Dyersburg, is now running one train a day into and out of Hickman, instead of four trains, due to their tracks being flooded at Miston, Tenn., where the water has backed up through the Obion River, from the Mississippi, and flooded that section. This one train is a mixed train of passengers and freight. A professor in the University of Wisconsin regards Thomas A. Edi son as hopeless. He says, "I doubt very much whether at your age, and what seems to be your present state of mind, it would be worthy of one's while to attempt to teach you any thing." Still , if a smart college professor had gotten hold of Edison when he was young, he probably could have made something out of him.
