Before the assembling of the democratic

the press:
"Senator Tillman, of South Carolina,

for the negro, to the groat terror of
tho passengers. Finally tney found

deputies to deliver him up. This was
refused, and a scuffle ensued in which
the deputies wore much 'bruised. The
mob then took the negro away, saying
that he would bo dead in flve mluutes,

Brutally Tortured.
A case came to light that for persistent
and unmerciful torture lias perhaps
never been equaled. Joe CJolobick,
of Colusa, Calif., writes; "For
15 years I endured insufferable pain
from Rheumatism and nothing relieved
me, though I tried everything
known. I came across Electric Bitters
and it's the greatest medicine
on earth for that trouble. A few bottles
of it completely relieved and
cured me." Just as good for Liver and
Kidney troubles and general <}efl>ility.

Annual Coffee Consumption.
It is estimated that tho people of
the United States drink 1.500,000,000
gallons of coffee in the course of a
year, at a cost of about ton cents a
gallon. The Importing cost of tho
requisite quantity of coffee berries for
this supply, at seven cents a pound, is
about $75,000,000. Preparation, package,
distribution and dealers' profits
make tho price to tho consumer about
double tho Importing cost.
