McGuire of Mc Kay, (.)., says : '-La grippe left me with a severe cough. After using several dif ferent medicines without relief, I tried Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, which effected a permanent cure.

The great merit of Ayer's hygienic coffee is not due to advertising, but, from its superiority over coffee. Priuci pal grocers sell it. About a year ago I had a violent at tack of la grippe. I coughed day and nighi fur about six weeks, and my wife then suggested that I try Chambet Iain's Cough Ilemedy. At first I could see no difference, but still kept taking it, and soon found that it was what I needed. If I got no relief from one dose I took an other and it was only a few days until I was free from the congh. I think peo ple in general ought to know the value of this remedy and I take pleasure in acknowledging the benefit I have re ceived from it.

Such strong proof of the marvelous cures maae by Dr David Kennedy's tavonte Remedy have been brought to public notice lately through the various newspaper investigations, that it has be come now the standard medicine for the disease for which it is prepared. DrG. Imgraham, of Amsterdam, X. v., states where the regular prescrip tions used in a case of kidney disease and gravel utterly failed, he prescribed Dr Kennedy's Favorite Remedy, and it cured the patient. Dr William Smith, of Jewett's Heights, N . 1 ., prescribed Favorite Remedy for Mrs Casper Brooks, of Athens, N. Y., who was suffering, from kidney disease, ulceration of the stomach, complicated with sickness peculiar to hei sex ; after the second day, steady improvement was noted, and final permanent recovery. Dr Kennedy's Favorite Remedy acts directly upon kidneys, liver and blood, in cases or nervousness, dyspepsia, rheu matism and Bright's disease; it has made most pronounced cures, after all other treatments have failed.

F. Cokely on Sunday evening. The subject was "The Prob lem of. the Country." The speaker showed by statistics the increase of the urban population and the decline of the country towns. This decline is not merely confined to New England, but to the Western states, where they leave their farms and rush to the cities. In France the cities are being filled up to the depletion of their rural districts. These things work to the disadvantage of the country villages. The roads are not as well kept up, churches and schools are weakened; owing to the difficulty of reaching the postofnee the daily pa pers are not read as much as formerly, social intercourse is neglected and the people settle down by themselves. This lecture will be followed by another entitled "The Problems ol the City. DEATH OF MRS JAMES SCTJTT. Mrs James Scutt died at her home on Buck Hill on Wednesday, aged 37 years.
