I knew that something would have to be
done, and soon, too. I talked with my
friends aliout what to do or take. Some ad
vised me to try this or that, but I did not
heed their suggestions, and now I am glad
of it. One day'I picked up a little pamphlet
or advertisement of Dr. Williams' rink
Pills. It told how the medicine cured peo
ple who were suffering from just what ailed
me, and I decided to buy a box, and I did. I
was somewhat in doubt as to whether they
were as good as it was .Maimed they were,
hut my doubt was soon removed. Those
pills fixed me up inside of two months. 1
never saw a medicine work so quickly and
surely as those little pills. Almost the first
one I took seemed to benefit me, and the
more I took the better I felt. That awfully
tinil and dejected feeling began to leave me
almost from the start. After taking half a
Io7en ot the pills my sleep was unbroken,
Then my appetite returned and with it
came my old time vigor. My muscles are
strong as ever now, and ray health is good,
and the pills did just what they were adver
tised to do.

Territorial Judges.
in looking over some old books and

Good Roads Convention.
The good roads convention held
in St. Louis in November will be an im
poriani meeting. tven if tbe conven
tion accomplishes nothing tangible, it is
important in tbat it shows that tbe peo
pie of Missouri are cognizant of the fuct
that better roads are a necessity.
The road question is one of the great
est consequence. Under tho system at
present in vogue in Missouri there is no
doubt ot the fact that hundreds of
thousands of dollars are wasted annually
without any betterment ot the high
ways. Many plans nnu suggestions
haye been offered, but so far nothing
has been done.
It is out ot the question to entertain
for a single moment tbe idea of working
convict labor in road building. It is
thoroughly impracticable.
j uage . A. ohewood ot the supreme
court advances an idea which should
receive careful consideration at tbe
hands ot the coming convention. It is
that tbe state issue good roads bonds in
a turn sufficient to connect all of the
couuty seats in the state by ruacadamiz
ed highways. These bonds could be
placed at 3 rcr cent interest for a long
period of ye -re. His plan would include'
the .supervision of road building and
mamtonance by a state commission, tak-
eg road matters entirely from the
urisdiction of county courts.
J. C.Berry, one of tbe best known
citizens ot Spencer, Mo., testifies that
he cured himself of the worst kind of
piles by using a few boxes ot DeWitt'a
Witch Hazel Salve. He had been
troubled with piles for over thirty years
and had used many different kinds of
so called cures; but DeWitt's was the
one that did the work and be will verify
this statement if any one wishes to
write him. Sold by all druggists.
To Cure'Hams.
This is the way Mrs. Henry Clay made
the celebrated Ashland hams. For
every ten bams of monerate size she took
three and a half pounds of fine salt, one
pound of salt-petre, and two pounds of
brown sugar, r.nd after mixing thorough
ly together, rubbed the hams therewith
on both sides. They were then packed
in a tight box and but in a cool outhouse
for about three weeks, tben taken out
and put in a pickling tub or hogshead,
and covered with brine strong enough
to float an egg. After three weeks they
were taken out, throughly rubbed with
fresh salt, and hung up in a well Tentil
atcd house for a few days to dry, then
hung in the Bmoke-nouse ana emnKea

The Uroiitest Discoverv Yet.
W. M. Repine, editor Tiskilwa, III.,
"Chief," says: "We won't keep house
without Dr. King's Xew Discovery for
Consumption, Coughs and Colds. Ex
perimented with many others, but
never got the true remedy uutil we used
Dr. King's Xew Discovery. Xo other
remedy can take its place in our home,
as in it we have a certain and sure cure
for Coughs, Colds, Whooping Cough,
etc." It is idle to experiment with
other remedies, even it they are urged
on you us just as good as Dr. King's
New Discovery. They are not as good
because this remedy has a record of
cures and besides is guaranteed. It
never fails to satisfy. Trial bottles free

A Library In Itself.
t ew people are able to buy as many
books as they would like, yet it is pos
sible without them to keep in touch
with all the leaders ot literature, as well
as to follow the world's progress in
every department of science and in
dustry. Tbe Youth's Companion al
ready provides the means for more than
bnlf a million households at an ex
pense to each of $1.75 a year. Every
issue ot The Companion gives as much
readme matter as a 12mo book ot 175
pages, and The Companion comes every
week. The quality of its contents is
shown by the announcement for 1893,
which promises contributions next year
from the Rt. Hon. W. E. Gladstone,
Rudyard Kipling, Speaker Reed, Capt.
A. T. Mahan, Mary E. Wilktns, W. D.
Howells, Lieutenant Peary, the Mar
quia of Dufferin, Senator Hoar, Justin
McCarthy and more than two hundred
other eminent men and women.

An Indestructible Shoe.
Duncan McXobb, of Lowell, Mass., a
new industry has been established. It
will be a shoe factory for manufactur
ing practically an indestructible shoe.
In spite of nil known devices to prevent
it, shoes will be worn unevenly at the
heels They will run down at the side
it a plate is worn on them, and nothing
can prevent it. Persons who wear tboir
shoes down at the side and confine to
put them on, jeopardize their ankles,
and many an injured leg has been the
This fact gave Mr. McXabb an idea
which he has successfully worked out
in a "rotary self locking heel." The
heel is made by special machinery, and
is in two parts, one of which is per
manently fastened to the shoe and the
other is adjustable and removal. When
the heel has been worn a week or more
and shows signs ot wear on oue side a
atroog pull unlocks it, and by turning it
one quarter a new surface is presented
and the heel snaps back and lucks itself.
In this way the heel is worn away
squarely and the sole also. There ia no
strain on the ankle, and besides there
is a great samg in stock in manufactur
ing. Mr. NcXabb has had several offers
for bis patent but he intends incorporat
ing a company and add another to
Lowell's varied industries.
TflE export trade continues heavy,
notwithstand the fact that a protective
tariff law is in operation. It was 22 per
cent, larger in September, 1897, than it
was in September, 187C.
Fpr 14 years this shoe, by merit
alone, has dl.tanmt all competitors.

It will be noticed that the pipers
which are predicting that tbe govern
ment will be victimized in the Kansas
Pacific sale a few weeks hence are tbe
very papers which were clamoring that
the government would be beaten in the
Union Pacih'u sale, which took place last
Monday. They are Democratic papers,
of the extreme left of that party. That
is to say, they are the yellow papers of
New York, with their annexes in a few
of tbe other cities. They predict that
the government will be beaten because
tbey would like, fur partisan reasons, to
have this take place. The wish dictates
the prediction. As tbe government is
run by the Republican party, a failure
by the government would, these papers
believe, be a great advantage to the
Damocracy. When the interests ot the
Democracy and the interests ot the
country conflict And they usually do
conflict the yellow press is for the
Democracy every time.
What has become of that favorite
free trade argument that a protective
tariff destroyed our foreign market?
that we couldn't sell our wheat abroad
unless we had free trade with those no
tions tbat bought il? Such arguments
a short while ago were used to deceive
the farmer into voting for tariff reform.
This was tho fond them ot the Demo
crats when they promised that if the
country could get four yunrs more ot
Grover we would roll in clover. Well,
they won with it. But the farmers
didn't roll in clover. Not much. Un
der the Wilson tariff which opeced our
markets to Europe, the price of wheat
fell to the lowest liguro ever known
within the memory of any man living
today. Under the present law (the
Dingley tariff) the price of wheat and
wool has nearly doubled nnd every
other farm product has largely advanc
ed in price. These are plain and stern
facts, and the people ought to profit by
Prince Bismarck is getting surley in
bis old age. He recently denounced tbe
Monroe dictrine as "uncommon insol
ence" on the part of the United States
towards the rest ot the world. We are
willing to acknowledge that Bismaick
ought to be a judge ot insolence, for he
used it times without number when he
was chancellor ot the German Empire.
But if the Monroe doctrine is insolence,
what is the meddling of Germany,
France, Russia, England, Austria and
Italy in the quarrel between Greece and
Turkey? And the meddling of the Pow
ers for about a century with Turkey?
The killing of tour men at Lexington,
Kentucky, on the morning of the elec
tion was enough to give the country a
pointer as to which way the blue grasa
state would go at the polls.
