(ESTABLISHED 1856.) XHE PEOPLE'S PPES5. (FOUNDED t827.) J. B. WHITAKER, Jb., Editor and "Manager. NOTICE. A Bine Mark here is to call attention the date to which your subscription is paid. Remittances are desired from those in ar- Faib week is here. The big days Wednesday, Thurs day and Friday. Winston-Salem says "Welcome I " and says it most heartily, to all the visitors to the city this, our gala week. The leaf continues to roll into North Carolina's largest and best tobacco market. The sales at oar warehouses are unprecedented this early in the season. Uncle Sam says Spain is another when she charges that this govern ment has not put forth proper efforts to prevent Cuban filibustering. Uncle Sam should, long ago, have recognized Cuban belligerency and then let Spain tote her own skillet. "In some of our counties a certifi cate does not mean much, but be sure that the children shall have the bene fit of what it does mean," says Superintendent of Public Instruction Mebane, in his last letter to County Supervisors. This is a humiliating confession, accompanied by good advice. If the statement made by Mr. Mebane is a fact, strong efforts should be made to change it. Satis factory results need not be expected to follow the employing of incompe tent teachers. A flash In the pan the Republi can dodge of international bimetal lism. What are they going to do about it? Tear ofi the mask com. pletely and stand for the single gold standard, or continue to masquerade as the champion of that which can not be accomplished? If they are sincerely in favor of international bimetallism they should advocate in dependent bimetallism, as that is the only avenue through which the former will be secured. There is one paper in the State that doesn't believe in a non parti san judiciary, neither in personnel nor in official action. The Hickory Press, Republican, takes the unjust and prejudiced view that Republican judges should render Republican decisions and takes Chief Justice Faircloth and Justice Furches to task for not doing so and intimates that they are in secret sympathy with the Democratic party. This is partisanship run to seed. As the Charlotte Observer remarks, "noth ing like it has ever been laid down in North Carolina before." The death of young Gammon, of Georgia, from injuries received in the football contest between North Caro lina and Georgia, bids fair to crys- talize public sentiment against the brutal game in the latter State and it Is probable that this sentiment will find expression in the Legislature by the enactment of a law forbidding such contests. Will a life have to be sacrificed in North Carolina before our schools and colleges and the University shall place the stamp of disapproval upon such dangerous and inhuman exhibitions? It is a matter of amazement tons that such brutality is sanctioned and encour aged by the heads of some of our educational institutions by men who display more senee and more humane instincts in other matters. Sotho was knocked out In his first round with the Governor Judge Robinson referee. The next round will be fought before the Supreme Court Justices of the State, and it is understood that if they decide against him Sotho will call for a third and final round before the Supreme Justices of the United States. In connection with this fight, which is attracting general attention, the Raleigh News and Observer of yesterday publishes this: "There is a rumor on the streets that two of the Supreme Court Justices will favor sustaining Judge Robin eon, which would oust S. Otho Wil son from his office; that two regard the law under fwhich the Governor is acting as unconsitutional, and that one Is as yet undecided. Loge Harris s responsible for the rumor." WELCOME I Welcome is the wotd with which Winston-Salem, the Queen City of Piedmont North Carolina, greets the visitors to the big Tobacco Fair. We welcome those from a distance; we welcome those from adjacent North Carolina and Virginia towns; we welcome those from the surround ing country. We hope the number of attendants, of all classes, will be commensurate with the size of the welcome that is in waiting. We have something to show that Is worth seeing and we want every body to see it. . We want them to. see the big ex hibit of tobaccos, which will convey some Idea of the superiority of the leaf produced in this section leaf without a rival for the manufacture of the superior product which has made Winston tobacco famous liar and near. We want tnem to see tne bioidhb nf manufacturers and merchants which will impress them thatl we have men with progressive and up-to-date ideas in the indus trial and commercial spheres. We want them to see the Twin City, with its advantages and re sources, its desirability as a place of residence, its practability as a great manufacturing centre. We want them to see what is to be seen, which is much, and if they don't see what they are looking for. we in vito them to ask to be shown it. Again we say, welcome I GETTING- THEIR EYES OPEN. If anybody is making political prognostications upon the idea that the next Democratic State Conven tion will ignore or fail to endorse the Chicago platform, free coinage, anti trust, anti-injunction, and all, such an one is reckoning from a false premise. The Democratic party in this State is not composed of such material as flickers and runs away at the first cap snap of its enemies. At the same time, the indications are that due attention will be given to State matters and strenuous efforts put forth to rescue the gov ernment from the hands of those who have so wantonly betrayed the trusts committed to them. In other words, it looks as if we are going to have a regular, old-fashioned Democratic campaign, in which Democratic prin ciples will be enunciated all along the line and the record of the enemies to good government will be exposed by the searching rays of justice and truth. The people are hungeriDgfor the campaign and election time to roll around, so that they may have the opportunity to administer deserved rebuke to the powers that be. The affliction came from the hands of the people and the remedy must emanate from the same source. North Caro lina had previously tasted the bitter dregs of Republican rule, but it ap pears that the taste had gotten out of the mouths of a majority of the people, or that by some kind of illogical process of reasoning they reached the conclusion that the Re publican brand of government of 1897 would be an entirely different article from that of thirty years ago; but a trial of a few months has demonstrated very clearly that this was a most grievous mistake and now they are anxious to do their first works over. As the months go by, the error of last year will grow more apparent and the desire to correct it will, correspondingly, grow stronger. The eyes of voters are again get ting open to the fact that good gov ernment in North Carolina can be secured only through and by the Democratic party, as is attested by all the history of the past. PRESENT ADVANTAGES It sometimes happens that in dividuals and communities, in the anxious rush for something more and something better and something more valuable in the attempt to reach and grasp an ideal of fancy lose sight of to a great extent and fail to appreciate properly that which they possess and the progress they have made. This line of thought follows some very pertinent remarks made by one of our most experienced tobacco manufacturers, who is a good farmer as well. ' He said that Winston Salem was situated in the very heart of the finest tobacco raising section in the world; that for the manufacture of first-class chewing tobacco the leaf raised around us was, beyond a doubt, without an equal anywhere; that these facts and the advantages thereof were, apparently, unknown to a great many citizens in the com munity facts and advantages that ought to be talked about among ourselves and made known generally to the outside world. There is meat for the thoughtful, public spirited citizen to chew upon in che statements of our mannfac turer-farmer friend. It is all right to reach out after that which we do not possess, but which we need for development along desirable lines. ' We would not slap the brakes upon the spirit of progress and ambition upon get-up-and-get and hustle but, at the same time, it is well to realize the value of what has already been accomplished and to use the bird in hand to help catch the birds in the bush. FAIR WEEK . The week towards which the eyes of all Winston Salem have been expect antly turned for the past two months is upon us the week of our big Tobacco Fair and the conclud ing preparations for the great event, which will open Wednesday morning, are being pushed in a hustling man ner. Ever since it was known that our people were anting la admirable unison in the enterprise there has been a solid foundation upon which to base expectations of success, and there is now no reason to doubt that these expectations will materialize. The exhibits of leaf tobacco will be the most extensive ever shown in the State and will be of especial interest to all engaged in the production, sale and manufacture of the product. Every attraction forming a part of the big Fair is absolutely free to visitors and it la hoped that all will be seen and enjoyed by large crowds. : So Very Rude. Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I'm not going to that female bar ber shop again. There's a duced rude girl there, don't yon know." "What did she say ?" "Why, she looked at my mnstawsh and awsked me if I would htve it sponged off or rubbed in."

We have no sympathy with one of a coterie of book publishers who the other day appealed to his colleagues to discourage the printing of cheap books. The glory of the end of the century is that literature is to be had almost for the asking The development of the printing press, th invention of typesetting ma chines, and the decrease in the cost of paper through the utilization of new devices, Have given a remarkable impetus to the art of printing. Ad mirable magazines, attractive both in typographical appearance and of high merit as regards their contents, are to be had for adime. The houfe hold in which the monthly magazine was once an unknown lnxury is now enabled to enjoy good literature and artistic illustrations at a nominal cost. Nor is this era of cheap but good literature confined to magazines. Books flood the market. There is some trash, most truly, but as a whole the Held 01 cneap eaiwons is o e well worth reaping. Nearly all the classics the books that are per ennially entertaining and helpiul are to be obtained for a few cents. When Emerson's wonderful essays can be had for 19 cents or Ruskin's beautiful "Sesame and Lillies" for the same sum; when the famous authors of other lands are preeeuted In dainty form and admirable trans lations; when Scott and Dickens and Thackary can be had for less cost than the poorest dinner, why shculd any one complain. . The most hopeful sign of the times is this widespread publication of good books at minimum cost. If there were no demand for th?m there would be no supply. They are not published for sentimental reasons. The very fact that good literature is within everybody's reach is, in itsel, broadening the publishers' market. One good book stimulates the mind and insures the sale of another volume. Presently, with a few pen nies or a few dollars, a library is gathered, and the seed of culture is sown. Certainly this is not to be deplored not even by the publishers of high-priced books. The wider the field of literary appreciation and en joyment becomes, the greater will be the demand not only for cheap edi tions, but for those volumes which cannot be published except at the old-time standard figures. The Good Not Always Beautiful. Washington Star. "To be good," remarked the off hand philosopher, "is to be beauti ful " "Wal," replied the man who was trying to sell him a mountain farm. "I dunno. Mebbe it's the exception as proves the rule." "What do you mean?" "I was thinkin' 'bout a 'possum. There's no denyin' that 'possum's mighty good; but ye ran't never make me think it's purty." LONG RUNS FOR WOMEN. Tbey Are Invitations to Suicide, Accord ing; to a New York Paper. That bicycling is not only a delight ful recreation, but an admirable and most healthful method of exercise, is undoubted if used in moderation. It is exhilarating to the system ; it develops all the muscles of the body ; it expands jtbe lungs ; it aids, not injures, the ac tion of the heart in short, it is an ex ercise and a recreation combined that can be recommended to men, women and children if used in moderation. It is particularly good for women, and, if not carried to excess, bicycling will do more to build them up in health and strength than any other outdoor sport in which they can indulge. But and there is a very big but in connection with bicycling there is probably nothing that will sooner and more utterly wreck a woman's constitu tion than a bicycle if she persists in long distance riding. There is a grow ing craze among women at present to win and wear "century" run medals, and some of them even aspire to the double and triple century honors. Nothing can be worse for them than these century runs. And as for the greater distance contests, they are sim ply invitations to suicide an overtax ing of physical strength that no woman can long withstand. If clubs presumably formed to en courage popular interest in the wheel do not frown on the woman who desires to join them in "century runs," there will be so many wrecked constitutions among wheel-women that a general oat cry against the wheel itself will result, followed by a lessening of the present wide popularity of the bicycle. New York Herald. Dangers of the Bicycle. To decide a wager made by an opponent of the bicycle that the wheel causes more casualties in one week than football does the entire season the stakeholder obtained the following surprising fig ures from indisputable authorities: Throughout the United States during a recent month there were 818 accidents reported to wheelmen, 83 resulting fatal ly at the time and 26 finally causing death. Collisions with other riders caused 227 accidents, 6 fatalities and 3 probably so. Other statistics show : Col lisions with vehicles, 159; with street cars, 83; dogs, 9; hogs. 1; chickens, 1; cows, 2; thrown from wheels, 233; fell over embankments, 8; breakage of ma chine, 35. Overexertion injured 4 and killed 4. Three were disabled by hole in the ground, and 5 were hurt by slip ping of wheeL Miscellaneous causes in-' jnred 14, while 10 were hurt by un known agencies. Indianapolis News. How to Cure Hleconc-be. A woman in a French hospital had 8 hiccough which had resisted all treat ment for four days. She was asked to show the tongue, and it was noticed that with the putting out of the tongue the hiccough ceased. The same thing has been since tried, and with success, is other cases. All that is necessary ap parently is to strongly push the tongue out of the mouth and hold it so for a minute or two. It is also suggested now to try the same thing in suffocative cough, as whooping cough and chok ing by irrespirable gases. Bow to Make a Face Wash. Mix of bicarbonate of soda 86 grains; glycerin, a dram; spermaceti oint ment, an ounce. Bub this gently on the face, let it remain for a quarter of an hour and then wipe off all but a slight film with a soft cloth. This keeps the complexion smooth and white. ' Valuable to Women. Especially valuable to women is Browns' Iron Bitters. Backache vanishes, headache disappears, strength takes the place of weakness, and the glow of health readily comes to the pallid cheek when this won aerful remedy is taken. For sickly children or overworked men it has no equal. No home should be without this famous remedy. Browns' Iron Bitters is sold by all dealers. CURRENT FASHIONS New Materials. Style and Trlmtainirs Represented In Imported Gowns. Red, maroon and blue are favorite colors just now, represented, by the bye, In several shades. Among reds are a "flame" red and a red known as "drag on's blood." The shade called "tile bine" is the blue of the willow pattern plate. Grays are fashionable, and there are many shades of yellow, ranging from the daffodil to a deep old gold. Coming to dress materials, there is a somprehensive collection, ranging from the plainest to the most elaborate, in cluding the simple cloth, the various plaids upon which fashion smiles and the fanciful stripes in silk and woolen poplins. Most excellent is a new fancy hopsack, known as the "trinidad," ot thick canvaslike texture. This is of wool, closely interwoven into small checks of three dark, harmonious shades. It forms an imported costume seen with a simple skirt and a tight bodice, fastening down the center with two revers of plain cloth covered with black guipure. The sleeves to this could I IMPORTED COSTUMES. either be made of the guipure, like the revers, or of the cloth to match the skirt, or, again, should the guipure not be considedred advisable for any especial reason, then might a velvet of harmoni ous hue be used in its place. Decidedly smart is a dress in plaid of poplin tex ture in blue and green. The skirt only is formed of the plaid. The bodice is of the plain blue rep, matching exactly the check pouching over the waist at the front and brought tightly into the waist at the back beneath a belt of dark green leather, the yoke to the front being of coarse white lace. A material of which the groundwork is silk and the pattern wool goes by a no less name in England than the "Duch ess of York. " A somewhat quilted ef ect is gained in the groundwork, and the design upon it has the appearance of lace. In cheaper materials there are cloths having the characteristics of coating and a new check tweed with an excellent vicunalike surface and obtainable in various colors. Elaborate trimmings of braid form the basis of some of the smart cloth suits. Skirts are moderate and conserva tive in style. Gowns for home wear are trimmed elaborately, and evening gowns are decidedly gorgeous. The new Rus sian coat leads, with all sorts of blouse bodices following. Furs of all kinds are to be largely employed in the trimming of woolen dresses. IMPORTANCE OFTHE FRIEZE. It Determines tbe General Effect of tba Decorations. Much of the interest of the wall cov ering centers in the frieze, as to a cer tain extent it gives the room its charac ter by determining the general effect of the decorations. It is hardly necessary to say that it must be always lighter in color than the paper or material used as the filling; otherwise the appearance will be heavy. Also it must be in the same style, although quite differently produced. The size and height of the room should decide the depth of the frieze, but in no case should it be less than 17 inches, or the effect is paltry and insignificant. True, a paper border 9 or 12 inches in depth is sometimes employed in rooms where there is no cornice, but this can hardly be ranked as a frieze, besides which a frieze must invariably be finished by a wood molding. In a large, lofty room 24 inches is not too deep for the frieze, which should be handsome and bold in design, of cordelova or one of the other materials embossed in relief, such as tynecastle canvas, anaglypta or as bestus. Any of these can be decorated in colors or painted white, but undoubt edly the latter treatment is best should the room require light. Another beautiful effect may be pro duced by embroidered art linen or a stenciled fabric, and again by stamped and printed velveteens. With such friezes the filling must be handsome and rich in character, and ordinary wall paper would be entirely out of place. There are, however, many simple friezes, such as an embossed canvas brush washed with two colors in order to get a metallic effect, a French leather paper and the printed paper. The floral frieze, which is decidedly popular, requires using with extreme discretion ; otherwise it becomes aggres sive. Especially is that the case when the flowers are of some very positive color printed upon a cream or almost white ground. The contrast between THE VINEYARD FRIEZE. - the ground and the design should not be too sharp if the effect is to be the most pleasing, and again it should not be used with filling which is crowded with design. Very often a perfectly plain frieze proves most successful, and when it- is tired it should be the same color as the ground of the wall paper. but several shades lighter. Sometimes it may be in paper, though for the most delicate colors it is advisable to use dis temper, or, better still, the washable water paint duresco, which dries with a surface like porcelain. A decorative frieze for the dining room is one of leather, having a bold design worked out in copper nails, and when used with oak paneling the effect is particularly rich. Then another, which is equally suitable for either din ing room or library, is of Spanish leath er, and this again looks its best with oak or walnut - There are a number of other materials which may be employed for friezes, such as painted tapestry, lac quered metal and fibrous plaster1 all beautiful and effective if properly and appropriately applied. liest to take after dinner; prevent distress, aid diges tion, cure constipation.

Bicycles Iteaiirned to Make Tbat Speed and Why Tbey Will Fall. The general use of the bicycle by those who know nothing whatever of mechanical laws is productive of a large and perennial crop of inventions, which, whether the inventors know it or not, can succeed only by upsetting one or more laws that are so well established and so certainly right that any mechan ical contrivance which attempts to get around them is a foredoomed failure. Many men who would repel with scorn the accusation of being perpetual mo tion cranks are yet trying to accomplish and in some cases claiming to have ac complished things which are in princi ple precisely the same, for it is literally true that when a man imagines that by the use of "leverage" or by some "con traption" or "gimcrack" he can put one man power into a bicycle and get out of it four or five times as much in work against wind resistance or in climbing hills that man is virtually a perpetual motion crank. One mile a minute seems to be the favorite speed of those who imagine their inventions are going to "revolu tionize" cycle construction, and it may be worth while to examine this a little. A force equal to one pound moving at the rate of one mile in one minute is equal to . 16 horsepower. The pressure of a wind moving at the rate of 60 miles per hour is variously given, but by no authority at less than about 10.5 pounds per square foot. , Assuming that a rider and his wheel expose a surface of three square fet to wind resistance, we have for the power required to over come this resistance at the given speed 10. 5x3x. 165.04, or a little over five horsepower. A man can ordinarily exert about . 1 horsepower, but for a short time may exert five times as much, which would still leave him far short of the power required for pushing him self through the atmosphere at the rate of 60 miles an hour. Improvements may be introduced that will somewhat lessen friction, but frio tional resistance in the present machine, when well made and in good order, is insignificant when compared with wind resistance at high speed. Most of the contraptions heralded from time to time would increase rather than lessen the fractional resistance, while they do not pretend to affect either way the chief obstacle to high speed. If one could dispense with air L e., ride in a vacuum or in air moving at the same rate as himself there would be scarcely any reasonable limit to the speed possible to be attained with the present machine, if sufficiently high geared, but that would not be real cy cling. American Machinist. Proper Brakins;. In use the brake should always be applied gently at first and with a grad ually increasing pressure. . Far too many riders put the brake on hard whenever desiring to ease up, and had they been riders of the old ordinary bicycles many would have paid the penalty for this carelessness by spend ing days, or even weeks, in the hospital. But, even with the much greater freedom from tumbles possessed by the modern safety, a very fine variety of fall can be managed by putting the brake hard on when going at a good speed. New York World. A Baron to Uphold American Colors. Baron de Stampenbourg is going abroad on a 12 months' trip around the world to challenge the racing men in every . locality he visits and uphold American colors. The baron has former ly made a success of the racing game abroad, where he holds several unbeat en track re3ords, and he believes it will be possible for him to reduce the slates abroad considerably, as he will be paced by a motor triplet. New York Tribune. A Lucky Wabble. A cyclienne of Louisville was so frightened at finding herself in immi nent peril of being run down by one of two vehicles that she was unable to turn her wheel to either side until a big dog ran out from a dooryard, bark ing and scaring her into forgetting the wheel altogether. She sought to gather her skirts about her, and as she let go the handle bar the wheel wabbled to the curb and she was thrown off to safety. A Bicycle Chaperon. "A bicycle chaperon? What is that?" asked the socially deficient young man. "A bicycle chaperon, " the other party to the conversation explained, "is a more or less elderly person of the gentler sex who is afraid to ride alone and attaches herself to parties of young folks that they may take care of her. " Cincinnati Enquirer. Starbnck's Chalnless Wheel. The chainless wheel ridden by Star buck when he defeated Michael at Phila delphia is the same that he rode in Madison Square Garden last winter when he defeated Tom Linton. The power is applied through three cog wheels, two large ones and a small one on the rear axle. New York World. Priests on Wheels. A Wilmington (Del.) paper says that several Catholic priests of that city ride the bicycle and that none of them ever looked undignified enough to make it clear why the bishops of many diooesea should prohibit priestly cycling. A Craven. Breathes there the man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said, "My wheel's the best of all, by fart" Who bath not claimed with honest zest, That his laid over all the rest.

The dainty wholesomeness of a well made, rightly baked sponge cake is ap preciatively mentioned by a writer in Good Housekeeping, who says : To make this cake that which it ought to be a "solidified mass of foam" re Quires the freshest of eggs, the purest of sugar and the finest of flour, put to gether with the most delicate of toucn es. To fix this foaming mixture, it must be baked in a quick oven. Sponge cake can be made either of a snowy whiteness or a golden yellow. The first is sometimes fancifully called "angel cake" and the latter "sunshine cake." There are a few general rules that must be observed to insure success in making any and all varieties of sponge cake. The eggs must be fresh and cool, so they can be beaten to a stiff foam. The sugar must be fine and dry, the flour made light by putting it through a fine sieve once or twice. The cake must be baked quickly. After the cake is put in the oven the door must not be opened until the cake is set, which will be in front 10 to 15 minutes, and when the pan is turned or moved it must be done very gently. The cake must not be removed from the pan until cooL If these rules and the directions given in the following recipes are carefully observed, the results will be certain success in the shape of a perfect sponge cake. Sponge Cake No. 1. Two even cup fuls of powdered sugar and the yolks of 12 egg's beaten together until very light, then add the whites of the eggs beaten to a stiff froth, the grated rind of a lem on and the juice of half a one, beating light Add 1 pints of flour, in which 2 teaspoonfuls of baking powder has been sifted, stirring only enough to mix the flour.

Bake in two square tins. If desired, the squares can be put together with frost ing. White Sponge or Angel Cake. On a large platter beat to a stiff froth or foam the whites of 10 eggs. Add 1 tumblerfuls of pulverized sugar. To a tumblerful of fine flour add a heaping teaspoonful of cream of tartar and a small pinch of salt. Sift all twice through a fine sieve. Add to the eggs and sugar, stirring lightly. The pan must not be greased. Turn on the side to cool when taken from the oven. This cake will require something over half an hour to bake in a moderate oven. A Quaint Bit of Furniture. A quaint bit of furniture for a house which is a revival of some old style of architecture the colonial, for instance is the great candlestick the like of which was to be found in the hall of I our great-grandmothers' homes. It is j four or five feet in height and is made of wood, stained in sealing wax red or a forest green. The stick or pedestal contains a thick candle, which is light ed every night, and near by it, at the turn in the stairs, is a shelf with a mot ley collection of small candlesticks. The Puritan, in calling attention to this fashion, says: On retiring each person picks up one of these, and lighting it at the big can dle takes his or her way to bed. It is a revival of a very pretty custom, and one that has been adopted in many places where electric light or gas is not to be had. Even where these modern illuminants are available the great can dlestick on the landing of the stairway is a pictursque sight, though it be but for show. A Pointer For me vecectivrt. "I saw you looking at a folding bed yesterday. Do you think of moving in to a flat?" "No. My rich uncle, who has made toe his principal heir, is coming to vis it us." Cleveland Leader. Apple uesserr. Peel some apples and put them in a jar with sugar to sweeten and a few drops of water and lemon or cloves to flavor the apples slightly. Put the jar, closely covered, in a saucepan of boiling water. Cook till tender, when beat to a pulp. Have ready some nicely sweeten ed custard and gradually stir it into the fruit pulp, beating them together until thoroughly amalgamated and creamy. Serve in custard glasses. This is a nice sweet dish for children served with rusks, biscuits, etc. , instead of pies or tarts. Cream or new milk can be used instead of the custard. Odds and Ends.

Osgood Recommends Paine's Celery Compound Charles E Osgood, of Boston, the owner of the largest and most suc cessful furniture business in New England, if not in the country, was one of the few buyers among f ornii ture dealers during the hard times of last year, who did a good business, always paying cash, moving on as if times were good, while rival con cerns were going to pieces right and left all about. His credit from Mich igan to Maine became so ronspicut ously "solid" that he was one of th3 most talked of young men in com mercial circles. With limited means, but well bred, fall of character, straightforward, and well educated, he started iu business only a few years ago in a very moderate way in a little store on Tremont street in Boston. The city began to know him quickly. His business rapidly assumed big pros portions. A newspaper interviewed him in the column of "Men Worth Knowing." "To what do you attribute your success" asked the interviewer. Mr. Osgood replied very shortly: "When in doubt; buy the best goods." Work told on Mr Osgood's health.

Work is necessary to a healthy body and brain; but when it rnna through the same grooves through tho twelve months, vear in and vear ! out, the effect is as disastrous as a ore in a bundle or wood. When the nervous system i shagged out none of the organs of tbe body do their duty; the purifying, excretory organs no not thoroughly cleanse the blood and the digestive and as similative organs keep the nerves badly nourished. The tired system needs help. Here is where Paine's celery compound accomplishes its wonderful woik. The radical purifying of the blood and the rapid feeding of the nerves by this great remedy prevents the development of diseases that often lurk unrecognized in the system. Every one who has taken Paine's celery compound has noticed and res marked to others its wonderful strengthening effect upon the entire nervous organization and its cleans ing action on the vitiated blood. It cures the body of that nervous habit eradicates head ache, cures insomnia, and wasting diseases that cause the aches and pains of rheumatism and neuralgia.

Any ailing habit, with frequent bodily pains over the seat of such vital organs as the heart, brain or kidDeys is serious and urgent.
