"As to the nominations the ticket is al

one. Mr. Adams has not got the necessary
experience and firmness for the county
ludgeship; that he, after having co-oper
ated in the address of the bar against

a strange inconsistency. Lie is not the
equal in legal learning to the independent
candidate, Blanding. That the present
county clerk, Cook, has been re-nominated
is a disregard to the citizens and taxpayers-
It is well known, that his deputy.
Webster, does all the business with his
assistants and that Cook knows little, if
anything, about it; also that he got more
pay allowed for assistant clerks than was
allowed before. Running against him is

many friends), a man of a generally

Twelve Years
Gentlemen : About twelve years ago, while
traveling witn Father Kemp's Old Folka Ooncert
Troupe as a tenor singer, I took a severe cold and
was laid up at Newark, N. J. This cold brought
on a severe attack of Catarrh, which I battled with
every known remedy for four weeks without avail
and was finally obliged to give up a most desirable
position and return home unable to sing a note.
For three years afterwards I was unable to sing at
alf. The first attack of Catarrh had left my nasal
organs and throat so sensitive that the slightest
cold would bring on a fresh attack, leaving me
Droel rated. In this way I continued to suffer. The
last attack., the severest I ever had, was terrible. I
suffered the most excruciating pain 4 1,1 7 bead,
wm an hoarse as to be scarcel v able to speak, and
coughing incessantly. I thought I was going into
nnirtr consumption. nd l flnnlv believe tnat naa
these symptoms - continued without relief they
would have rendered me an easv victim, wnen in
this distressing condition, I commenced the nse of
luctantlv.I confess, as I had tried all theadvertised
remedies without benefit The nrst dose of this
wonderful medicine gave me the greatest relief. It
is hardly possib:e for one whose bead aches, eyes
ache who can scarcel v articulate distinctly on ac
count of the choking accumulations in his throat.
io realize how mucn renel l ontainea irom tne nrsi
application of Sanpord's Radical Cork, under
lis influence, both internal and external, I rapidly
recovered, and by an occasional nse of the remedy
since have been entirely free from Catarrh, for the
first time in twelve years.

A democratic majority of forty in tbe
legislature of California is the first fruits o!
the election of 1877. It is ominous of
good, Thanks are also due to Messrs.
Hayes, Schurz, and Key for not having
taken their circus to California before this
election. If they bad been there, tbe anti
fraud majority would have become incon

Messrs. Weeks & Potteb: Gentlemen. Yonr

I have suffered with a weak and painful back more

my sides and hips. My left side and hip are feeling
very well, but I think I require another Plaster for
my right side. I am so much improved that I can
walk and stand, but before I got your Plaster I was
unaoie 10 waia or siana.
