Why Not Air Flood?
If there is any good reason for
takin? Mr Flood from the work
that is now well to his hand at
Washington, and placing a raw
man in his place, we haye not been
able to disco\er it. So far as wp
can see and judge he has faithfully
represented us, and luis never fail?
ed to stand for, advocate, support
and uphold true democratic princi
To select a man west of the
Ridge, and not from Highland,
could bring r.o direct benefits to
this county ovet the present ar?
rangement. Alli way, Mr Flood,
had he been one of our own coun
tymen, could not have responded
more heartily and promptly to de?
mands made upon him bj his con?
stituents from this part of his dis?
trict. Matters now on foot which
will he directly beneficial to the
people of Highiand, haye been in?
troduced by Mr Flood and are now
engaging his time and support, and
will continue to receive his co-op?
eration until they niaterliali/.e.
Taking it all in all, Mr Flood
has been exceedingly courteous to
the citizens of Highland and mind?
ful of their best interest, and we
believe the Recorder speaks the
sentiment of a large majority of
the democratic voters of the coun?
ty when it savs it believes that
Mr Flood should be sent back
down to Washington for another

Don't Lay lt to The Board
As lhere seems to be some mis?
apprehension a9 to the increase of
the salaries of county officers by
the Board of Supervisors as stated
in a former issue of this paper, it is
possibly due to our Board to add
by way of explanation thal the Act
of the Legislature, under which the
increase was allowed provides that
the salaries of the Commonwealth's
attorney, sheriff and clerk, shall be,
in mo case, less than $300.00 and
in counties containing 10,000 in?
habitants and less, not more than
$400.00 each. The Board could
have allowed ?400 each but chose
the smaller amount.
Presumably the increase of du?
ties and responsibilities of these
officers, under the present constitu?
tion, is one reason for the amend?
ment of the statute.
In the notice we gave of the al?
lowance to these officers we clearh
stated that it was the minimum
amount fixed by the statute and
not bv the Board. For some folks
vou haye to write, read, spell, parse,
phrase and paraphrase before you
can get them to understand what
vou are driving at. If you want
to scrap anybody about this matter
wait till the legislature meets again
and go down, but don't lay it to
the Boiird of Superyisors. The
Board has troubles of its own.

Eight months ago I was so ill
that I was compelled to lie or sit
down nearly all the time. My
stomach was so weak and upset
that I could keep nothing on it
and I vomited frequently. I
could not urinate without great
pain and I couched so much that
my throat ana lungs were raw
and sore. The doctors pro?
nounced it Bright'8 disease and
others said it was consumption.
It mattered little to me what
they called it and I had no de?
sire to live. A sister visited mo
from St. Louia and asked me if
I had ever tried Wine of Cardui.
I told her I had not and she
bought a bottle. I believe that
it saved my life. I believe many
women could save much suffer?
ing if they but knew of Us value.
Don't you want freedom from
pain? Take Wine of Cardui
and make one supreme effort to
be well. You do not need to be
a weak, helpless sufferer. You
can have a woman's health and

There are many children in

wearing them. There is no time in life
when the eyes ought to receive such
careful attention ss through school years.

place in the eye-hall, ami the work Ia

dency to defective vision, it can be check?
ed better at this time than any other.
Wearing glasses constantly in after life
may be avoided. If the child seems to
hare difficulty In seeing thc characters
upon the blackboard, or if he holds bia
book too close or too far away, there is
a defect. If il seems to he an effort for
him to study; if he has a headache a great
