pmi ■ Fairfax, Minn., Nor. 18, 1898. | Dead Shot Remedy Co., Minneapolis * Minn. Dear Sir:—'Believing it to be my duty | to the public I will send you for publi* Cation (if you so elect) an account of the benefit myself and family have received from using your Dead Shot to Catarrh. Last fall I caught a heavy cold and could not break it up, and it resulted In catarrh in the head. It kept growing worse and commenced to settle on my t lungs; it bothered me to breathe; I was raising targe quantities of phlegm and I was very much worried over my con dition. It so happened I was a delegate to the State Farmers’ Alliance and In dustrial Union, last winter, and the last evening of the session, I had been at a committee meeting, and Eric Olson, state lecturer of F. A. & I. U., was pres ent, and just as we were parting he took out of his pocket a little box and commenced putting something into his nostrils. I asked him what It was; he snld it was Dead Shot to Catarrh. I asked him if it was good for it; he said it had been highly recommended to him. I told him I had been suffering with catarrh for some time and asked him to let me try it; he did so and I took the name of the man who made it, J. B. Dukes, of Minneapolis. The next morn ing I found it had helped me very much. When I got home I sat right down and S( nt in an order for one-half dozen boxes, and before I had used half of one box I was cured. The ringing in my ears had stopped, and it had cleaned put my lungs. I could feel the accumu lation in my lungs loosen and raised it in chunks. My daughter, Gladys, has had catarrh for a long time; we have tried several remedies, and among them Dr. Hall’s remedy, that he offered to give SIOO for any case it will not cure. She used several bottles and got no relief. She bled at the nose con tinually. She had not used one-half box of Dead Shot before the bleeding was stopped and she was almost well. I have sold a good many this section and 1 have got to find one person that has used it who is not con vinced that it is the only remedy that will cure catarrh, thereby preventing so many from dying with consumption. EAeryone who uses it tries to keep it iu the house, as it is a sure cure for a cold as soon as it is contracted. I am con vinced that after a person has once had catarrrh, it being a parasite, the mem brane of the nose will never get natural again, and they will always be more susceptible to colds and catarrh; but with Dead Shot to Catarrh always on hand, you are always ready to combat It. Please send me two dozen boxes. I am very respectfully yours, C. H. HOPKINS. Mr. Hopkins is justice of the peace, and was on the ballot for state auditor in 1898. One box of Dead Shot is worth a bar rel of Thompsons Eye Water. It cures all kinds of sore eyes. J. F. ORIFFIN. BITOjj’ENCIL Fair Owner Wen the Love of Abe Cronkite’s Young Friend. Detective Shattered the Law yer’s Confidence in a Widow. It was one day Id midsummer, when the courts were dosed and many law offices and law books with them; but calendar changes made no difference to Mr. Beavers, junior member of the firm of Marcellus & Beavers. The judge might be off to Europe, as he was; the clerks might be drawing cuts for the most desirable two weeks of vacation, as they were; even Abe Cronkhite might have left his desk and be strolling around town, observing the passing throng in parks, hotels and streets, and storing away bits of indiscriminate knowledge which time and again had come pat to an emergency, as he wae; it was all one to Mr. Beavers. He pursued an undevlating course to the office in the morning and back to his modest lodg ings at night, even as he had ever since he came out of the country town, where the judge himself was born, to apply well grounded principles of law and practice to the larger affairs of metropolitan life. An invaluable man was Mr. Beavers, as Industrious as his name implied. But yet, this spare, dark young man, with respectable string tie and his watch guard of his mother's hair, had remained a stranger in the great town. He knew his way to the courts, the county offices, the lecture rooms, and the courts; that was all. His work had engrossed his time; it had engrossed his shrewdness; so personally he remained, as he came, simple and unsophisticated, says the Chicago Inter Ocean. On this day In midsummer, then, Mr. Beavers sat at his desk. He was alone, and so preoccupied that he did not notice the swinging of the door. It was, therefore, with a start that he saw as he glanced from his w’ork a beautiful young woman, dressed in black, standing by him. “I am seeking Judge Marcellus,” she be gan. “I have a letter to him from the Hon. J. K. Minster, of Mountain Dale, his old time friend. Are you he?” There was a subtle flattery in the tone, implying as it did that the young man might well have reached such legal eminence. He hastened, therefore, to express the desire to be of any possible service to one so highly recommended. "Oh, . then you are Mr. Beavers.” she cried. "I am so glad! I have heard so much about you., and you are so clever and competent, I just know you will ar range all my troubles for me. My name is Eleanor Naughton, and my dear husband was Carroll Naughton, of Mountain Dale. He died three months ago, leaving me all his property, but when his will was pre sented for probate st the surrogate's court his brothers and sisters filed objections— oh. such awful lies!” She drew a formi dable package from her reticule. Mr. Beavers ran over the documents with the rapidity of experience. “Ah, yes,” he murmured. “Petition, objections, answer, issue Joined, appointment of temporary ad ministrator, and hearing set for Oct. 1, to which time the court stands adjourned. And what’s this: blank power of substitu tion from the petitioner's attorneys, Knowles ft Vholes? Your lawyers have abandoned the case, madame?” "Yes, bought off by the other side," sobbed Mrs. Naughton. "I don't have to imagine; I know, ■aadain,”. replied Mr. Beavers, "from the grim realities of many, many cases. There Is .nothing further to do before the return •\r ?/i f*' •• • • DOVT FAI, ‘ TO HAVE in the house a box of this great remedy during the prevalence of grippe, it will save much suffering, possible death, AS WELL AS DOC TOR’S BILLS.

ADDRESS DEAD SHOT REMEDY CO., BOSTON BLOCK, MINNE APOLIS, MINN. day, when the judge will be here. “But I se the estate is entirely tied up; pardon me, madam, we have to be Inquisi tive, you know,” said Mr. Beavers. “Have you sufficient means for your subsistence?” “At present, yes,” answered the young widow, a little doubtfully. “You see, a year ago my husband made me a present of 20 Vidalia bonds, SI,OOO each, you know, and nothing better in the world; but the interest day isn't until Oct. 1. I might hy pothecate them, to be sure, but Mr. Minster thought it wouldn't be wise.” Mr. Beavers carefully counted over the securities, as crisp as if right from the press. “Have you the numbers?” he asked. “No? Then please jot them down yourself.” The young woman took from her reticule a bit of a pencil, and made the memorandum. “Here also is my receipt,” continued the lawyer; “perhaps under the circumstances it is prudent for us to be entrusted with them.” “Oh, I am so grateful to you; and you won’t mind my coming often for counsel — may 1 say comfort?” said the young widow. “Here is my card—Mrs. Eleanor>*Jaughton, the Quenlon. I fear I shall be such a nui sance.” “Nuisance, madam!” exclaimed Mr. Beav ers. “It is my duty, my pleasure, my ” Here words failed him. His client drew about her the habiliments of woe and tripped out. For a few moments Mr. Beavers sat in a reverie, deliciously novel. Was there ever such a charming creature, so persecuted, so helpless? He indorsed the name of his new client on the bonds and put them away in the safe. Then he noticed that Mrs. Naugh ton had left her pencil on the desk. It was a comical little butt for a woman to carry, and he smiled at her naturalness in using It; rather unusual in appearance It was, too, being yellow in color and with an indefinite something about it which be spoke foreign make. Despite the propriety which Mr. Beavers had brought with him from the country, and enlarged through habit into primness, he kissed the fragment and stored it with a sigh in his vest pocket; nor did it in any way occur to him that Mrs. Naughton had neglected to deliver the letter of introduction from the judge’s old-time friend, the Hon. J. K. Minster. The summer waxed and the summer waned, and a strange, surpassing emotion developed and flowered in Mr. Beavers’ breast. The clerks took their vacations, and Abe Cronkite Indulged his peripatetic studies; but the young lawyer s devotion to duty was all the greater. Gone was Mrs. Naughton's melancholy, dissipated by the confidence which the very name of Marcellus & Beavers inspired. She no longer appeared In those habiliments of woe. She now seemed the embodiment of all that is light and ethereal and gay, as she floated to the Windsor chair by his desk, under the convoy of a Gainsborough hat. One day, in the early fall, as the lawyer looked over the advances he had been over joyed to allow his new client to draw against the bonds in his possession, he was dismayed by the total. “Dear, Impetuous, uncalculating Eleanor,” he murmured, “I really must caution her for her own good. The next time she comes I will expostulate with her.” Days passed, and the Windsor chair re mained unoccupied. Eleanor must be ill, so til as to be unable to send him word. In quiry at the Quentin only Increased the law yer’s agitation. Mrs. Naughton was not there; she had not been there for weeks, indeed. What did it mean? What should he do? Mr. Beavers touched the bell on hlB desk and called into consultation Abe Cronk ite. who had desisted from his philosophical wanderings. “I remember, years ago, sir,” remarked Abe Cronkite. after the case had been stated as only an enamored lawyer could state It, “that Bill Dalton, the burglar, made a haul of about all of one issue of Vidalia bonds. But he never was able to realize. Tney were canceled by law, and there was a reissue.” “What has that to do with the matter, asked Beavers, savagely. "Nothing, sir, only it might be prudent to inquire,” “Nonsense!” returned the other, with un abated Ire. “It would be an insult to a lady of the highest and noblest character, recommended to us by one of the judge's old-time friends, the Hon. J. K. Mlnester.” “Would you mind showing me his letter?” “I haven’t It at hand Just at present,” said Mr. Beavers, evasively. “And you have never communicated with her former attorneys, Knowles & Vholes?” continued Cronkite remorselessly. “No; why should I?” asked Mr. Beavers, as he took a bit of yellow pencil from bis pocket and twirled it nervously. “Well, I noticed in the papers a month ago an advertisement for some legal pa pers left on an elevated train, and it was signed by Knowles & Vholes.” “That is the worst thing about you, Cronkite,” said the lawyer, all flushed and excited, “your long association with crime makes you so suspicious.” “Where did you get that pencil, sir?” Cronkite inquired. “That question is too irrelevant far an swer,” retorted Mr. Beavers. “Well, if by any chance, sir,” the de tective persisted, "the lady should have happened to leave it here, why, it might prove a clew.” Mr. Beavers’ anxiety was so great that he not only admitted that Mrs. Naughton had owned the pencil, but delivered the precious relic into the detective’s charge. As straight as if the magnetic needle pointed the way, Abe Cronkite proceeded to where the horses were running by the seaside, only pausing to make certain changes in his appearance not on the side of austere respectability. These changes, how ever, were so effective as to give him ready acquaintance with the loungers about the bar of the adjacent hotel, and his gliu and adaptable tongue did the rest. By this time the tramp, tramp along the piazzi indicated that the races were over for the day. he was generally accepted as Mr. Nerval, the starter for a Western track, and a man worthy of cultivation by all the knowing ones. As the crowd surged through the windows Mr. Nerval grew re tiring. He stepped out to a corner of the piazza and watched closely, while, after the first arid rush, the men and women noisily and flauntingly took places at the various tables. One couple especially seem ed to attract the starter’s attention —a pret ty young woman, vivid with ribbons and ablaze with diamonds, and a tall, well-made man, whose dress and manner revealed ail the outer signs and inner graces of a dead game, all-around sport. They were laugh ing boisterously, they were, ordering lav ishly; evidently things had come their way, and they wanted the whole world, or at least their half, to know it. Soon the man, after his kind, sauntered into the barroom, and Mr. Norval followed. “Jim Mixon,” said a hanger on, "shake hands with Pop Nerval, the Western starter.” “You’re a good man to get next to,” said Mixon affably; “what'll you have?” “You must meet her,” insisted Mixon, after a little, indicating his fair companion with his thumb, and for the next hour the three over a superabundance of half-cold food and half-warm wine talked technically about the steppers, and whether so and so s stable was out for the duet, and which was the wiser course, to follow the jocks or the colors. So great, indeed, was the attraction of the Mixons for the Western man that they insisted when the city was reached on his accompanying them to their Harlem flat, where a bird and a bet premised a fit ting ending for what yet was only the shank of the evening. It was when these pleasures were culmin ating, and the smoke of the heavy blark cigars was curling lazily over the wet table and clinging to the glasses that Mr. Nerval little by little brought the conversation to a consideration of the many monetary ad vantages within the grasp of thoroughbreds like themselves. “Sometimes, though, the biter is bit,” re marked Mr. Nerval w'ith a laugh, as he lolled back in his chair, “as I happened to And out once to my loss. Did you ever hear tell of old Bill Dalton? No? Well, Bill was one of the old time lags you read about and his graft it was cracking safes. One night be did a slick job at Vidalia. lifting a whole new issue of bonds, blow me if he didn’t. His plan war- to lay low and wait for an offer, but the lawyers put their heads together and contrived a law that canceled the lot, and permitted a reissue, and old Bill was left with a fist full of sleepers. After that any of the boys who wanted to spring a game on some hayseed, the old snide bond racket, you know, would apply to old Bill for the collat, and get It, too, for a thankee kindly. Why, I had a bunch of the stuff a few years ago that I let go for a song. “Now here is where the joke was on me TOE REPRESENTATIVE: THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 1901. DEAD SHOT. . and old Bill, and the rest of the old fly bobs. Only a day of so ago I heard, and it came from headquarters, too, that the higher courts had taken up the question of those Vidalia bonds that old Bill prigged and de cided that since they had gotten into the hands of innocent third parties they were good for the face and interest. And that ain’t all, by a jugful. Being a first lien, as the saying is, they come in ahead of the re-issue, and command a premium on the stock exchange, and no questions asked, of about 50 per ceut.” When the genial Mr. Nerval finally took a long farewell of his hosts, they looked at each other with dismay. The following afternoon when Abe Cronk ite came into the office Mr. Beavers greeted him with an air of conscious triumph. “Let this be a lesson to you, Cronkite,” he said, “against hasty judgments. Mrs. Naughton called this morning and paid the amount I had advanced on the bonds. Her absence was caused by the illness of a dear friend, and she was In such a hurry to re turn to her that she had not the time to ex plain fully the two or three discrepancies in her case which you were so eager to pronounce suspicious.” And then Abe Cronkite. perceiving that nothing but the plain truth would remove an infatuation which the young lawyer’s sterling qualities only made the stronger, told the story from beginning to end. “But how did you know where to seek her?” gasped Mr. Beavers. “I don’t under stand.’ “You forget the yellow perfcil,” explained Cronkite. “the moment I saw it I knew she must follow the horses. You never see one in use outside of the ring. Why should you? They cost much more than the or dinary kind. But the bookmakers, and especially the sheetwriters, require in their business, as you will readily see. a lead very black, unfriable, and tough; and these yellow pencils, which are made in Austria, fill the bill. It’s the little things that point the way, sir, as I said before; and that lit tle nub of a pencil sent me as straight to the track as if steered by the magnetic needle itself.” SENATOR WOLCOTT. Stories of Senator Wolcott’s cam).sign in Col orado are among the most interesting reminis cences of the late campaign. One of these starlet relates to the episode at Victor, where, as every body remembers, there was a state of affairs which it would be complimentary to call con fusion. lielore the excitement reached its height some one in the crowd shouted “Hurrah for Bryan!’’ “Yes.” impulsively exclaimed Wolcott, advanc ing to the front of the platform, “you can hur rah for Bryan all you like, because you won’t have a chance to hurrah Tor him after election. Your man is beaten now.” “You’re a liar." caine from the Bryanite. “I’ll bet you 116 to 1 lie! Is beaten,” said Wol cott. The tnan pushed his way through the crowd and clambered up on the platform. "I’ll tak. that bet.” he said. “Well.” replied Wolcott, “here is the eashiei of our bank. You know him’.’ 1 authorize him to pay you *ll6 if Bryan: is elected. Now put up your money." The man fumbled in his pocket and brought out a silver dollar. “Kiss it.” exclaimed Walcott, as the man was about to band It to the..i>ank cashier. “Kiss it, for you will never see It .again.” And Senator Wolcott 'was right.—Washington Post.
