They do not scour; they do |ipe; they do not weaken; but they t all the secretions of the liver maeh in a way that soon puts gans in a healthy condition and constipation. In my opinion ition is responsible for most There are thirty-two feet of bowels, which is really a sewer i’hen this pipe becomes clogged, ide system becomes poisoned, biliousness, indigestion and im lood, which often produces rheu and kidney ailments. No 'n who suffers with constipation liver ailment can expect to have ar complexion, or enjoy good i health. If I had my way I would pro- | I hlblt the sale of nine-tenths of the i cathartics that are now being sold, for ! the reason that they soon destroy the | ! lining of the stomach, setting up seri- 1 j ous forms of indigestion, and so para- J lyze the bowels that they refuse to act link ss forced by strong purgatives. Munyon's Paw-Paw Pills are a tonic to the stomach, liver and nerves. They invigorate, instead of weaken; they en rich the blood, Instead of impoverish i ing it; they enable the stomach to get all the nourishment from food that is put Into it. These pills contain no calomel, no dope; they are soothing, healing and stimulating They school the bowels to act without physic. Trial box of 10 Pills, 10 cents.

Xov. 7. | the Editor of tha Evening Star: In the political situation as I tea it there is only one reason why Xe\r Jersey (ir. which State I was bone ; and have lived for more than fifty years) should go Democratic, as so I many other States have, and that :s, 1 the Republicans have forgotten that , you can fool seme of the voters all the time, but not all the voters all th* I time. Ever Eince I cast my first vote. In 1876, I have voted the straight Re* publican ticket, as also have my en* tire family connection, which in ouy town number over seventeen votes, but when the party so far forgot it* self, 1 think it is time to show oug manhood and vote for those who can be depended on when they get to Tren ton. The Republican party tried to frighten the public by what might happen, but we have to deal with tlio present, not the past, and the present I shows the Democrats are anxious t® give us a safe and sane State govern* ment. It is time we had a change. Every* thing changes in nature, and it should be applied in politics, so we should have a healthy, new, clean growth; on® that will be for the people, not fo» private greed and monopoly. Pleas* give this a prominent place in you* I paper, as l think those who reed can I readilv see how to vote.
