It is certainly fair to assume that what Hood's Barsaparilla has done for others it will do for you. Therefore, if you suffer the pains and aches of' rheumatism, give this potent remedy a fair trial A Positive Core. " I was troubled very much with rheuma tism in my hips, ankles, and wrists. I could hardly walk, and was confined to my bed a good deal of the time. Being rec ommended to try Hood's Sarsaparilla, I took tour bottles and am perfectly well. 1 cheerfully recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla as one of the best blood purifiers in the world." W. F. Wood, Eloomington, 111. For Twenty Years 1 have been afflicted with rheumatism. Before 1883 1 found no relief, but grew worse. 1 then began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla, and it did me more good than all the other medicine I ever had." H. T. BA1.COM, Shirley, Mass.

It has been learned that Charles Werner Znddick, the German who was killed by a dynamite explosion at the new aqueduct Nov Itf, was once inti mately associated with prominent Anarchists of Europe as manufacturer of their ex plosives, and there is good reason to believe he made the dynamite for the fatal Chicago bomb. His former employer said Wednes day night that in April Zaddick "made up some of the strongest dynamite I per cent, nitro-glycerine and said he would take it down to the city. He knew a person who would purchase a lot. He sold all he carried away, and paid me for it shortly afterward. After the explosion in the Kaymarket in Chicago he said to me that the dynamite he had made was first class and had done its work well. He repeatedly said he had sold the dynamite which went into the bonibs in Chicago." Mrs. 1'arsons, the Chicago An archist, made her headquarters at the house of Mrs. Zaddick when she visited here.

The workiiigmen, the small trades men, the farmers, all thinking ami liberty loving men, have but one answer for that namely, arming. Arm yourselves with the cheapest, the best, the most effective arms such as can be handled easiest whether Uatling guns, Winchester rifles, or pistols.

He bases his claims on gross frauds in half a dozen localities, generally in remote sections of the state. In Lower St. Loui county, for instance, he asserts that .Kt pri sons, who had not even their lirst paj1, voted, and therefore the county, which gave MeGill 1,000 plurality, must be thrown out He also believes tlfflt several hundred votes were thrown out iu Hennepin county (Min neapolis) that should have been counted for him.
