May be increased, the Digestive organs
strengthened, and tho bowels regulated,
by taking Ayer's Pills. These Pills aro
purely vegetable in their composition.
They contain neither calomel nor any
oilier dangerous drug, and may ba taken
with pcrf ect safety by persons of all ages.
I was a Rrcat sufferer from Dyspepsia
and Constipation. I bad no appetite,
and was constantly afflicted with ilead
iielis and Dizziness. I consulted our
family doctor, who prescribed for rue, at
various times, without affording more
than temporary relief. I finally com
menced taking" Ayer's Pills. In a short
time my digestion and appetito
my bowels were regulated, and, by the
time I finished two boxes of these Pills
my tendency to headaches had disap
peared, and I became strong and well.
Darius M. Logan, Wilmington, DeL
I was troubled, for over a year, with
Loss of Appetite, and General Debility.
I commenced taking Ayer's Pills, and,
beforo finishing half a box of this medi
cine, my appetito and strength were re
stored. C. O. Clark, Danbury, Conn.
Ayer's Pills are the best medicine
known to me for regulating the bowels,
and for all diseases caused by a disordered
Stomach and Liver. I suffered for over
three years with Headache, Indigestion,
and Constipation. I had no appetite, and
was weak and nervous most 01 the time.
three boxes of Ayer's Pills, and at the
same time dieting myself, I was com
pletely cured. My digestive organs are
now in good order, and I am 1n perfect
health. P. Lock wood, Topeka, Kara.
Ayer's Pills have benefited me wonder
fully. For months I suffered from Indi
gestion and Headache, was restless at
nitiht. and had a bad taste in m v mouth
every morning. After taking one bos
of Ayer's Pills, all these troubles dis
appeared, my food digested well, and
my sleep was refreshing. Henry C.
Hemmenway, Eockport, ilass.
I was cured of tho Piles by tho use of
Ayer's Pills. They not only relieved mo
of that painful disorder, but give me in
creased vigor, and restored my health.

A MODEST HERO.
A singular instance of soldierly"
modesty was brought to Iisjht re
cently in Washington. Almost
everybody who has been familiar
with the capital at any time during
the last six years must have no
ticed an elderly man with one arm,
who was doorkeeper to one of the
ladies' galleries of the house of
his courtesy and infallible punct
uality at his humble post of duty.
Few people in "Washington know
anything about him except that he
was a faithful doorkeeper at $100
per month. Those who saw his
empty sleeve naturally supposed
that he had lost an arm on one side or
the other of the civil war. He was
a quiet, dignified old gentleman,
who came from his home to the
capital andjreturned home again
when his work was done.
One day last June he did not
appear. A pale woman came to
say that he was very sick and could
not be at the door for a day or two.
He was never there again. Jn a
week lie was dead from pneumo
nia. Then the reporters began to
write long sketches of the dead
doorkeeper. It turned out that
he had a history. His name was
George J. Stannard. . He volun
teered in Vermont as soon as the
war was "declared. Promotion
came to him rapidly, and -'at last
he rose to the rank' of major-general.
There never was a braver
solider. lie was shot ten times,
and had his right arm taken offat
the shoulder by a shell.. At 'Get
tysburg and C9UI Harbor he great
ly distinguished himself. In the
army he was universally loved and
honored. Not one of his associ
ates at the capital ever heard hitn
speak of his services, brilliant as
they were. He accepted his lot in
life with cheerful resignation, and
fought adversity to the last as
bravely as he ever faced a hostile
army. He was a faithful, modest
man, who never dreamed that he
was a hero. He left nothing but
one month's salary. Atlanta

Robert J. Burdctte recently re
ceived a notification at Livingston,
M. T., that a dead registered letter
awaited his orders at Washington.
He sent the following reply: "If
the letter referred to isn't so dead
that it is offensive, you- might send
the remains to Burlington, Iowa,
where I will claim the mnmnvy in
about a month."

Worth Thinking About.
Some boys seem to be anxious
to get away from the farm. If
they would talce tlie advice ot old
men who have made farming a
life work, they would find that the
weight of advice would be stay
on the farm. Here is what col
onel W. W. Rose, of Texas, sajs:
"I have been a farmer and watch
ing farming for fifty years. I now
see the cause of our failures; it
was not the land or seasons, but
the fault lay in us. If I were a
voung man again nothing would
entice ine away from the farm."
Sometimes the words ot one
who is not on a farm have more
weight than one who is farming.
To such we would repeat the
words of the Hon. Thomas Uor
win. When he was secretary of
the treasury a- young man jour
neyed from Ohio to Washington
in search of, a; clerkship. When
he came to Mr. Corwin this is the
advice he get: "My young friend,
go to the northwest; buy 1G0 acres
of government land, or it you
haven't money enough, squat on
it; get )'OU an axe and mattock,
put up a log cabin for your habi
tation, and raise a little corn and
potatoes; keep your conscience
clear and live like a freematvyour
own .master with nobody to' give
votv orders, and without tlenen-
tlence upon, anybody. Do that
and you will be honored, respect
ed influential and rich. But ac
cept a clerkship here, and you sink
at once all independence; your en
ergies become relaxed, and you
are unfitted in a few ycars'for any
other and more independent posi
tion. I may give you a place
to-day and turn you out to-tnor-row;
and there is another man over
there at tlie White house who can
turn me out, and so we go. But
if von own an acre i land it is
your kingdom, and your cabin is
your castle; you are a sovereign,
and you will feel 111 it every tliroli
binjr of vour pulse, and every day
of your life you will assure me of
your thanks for having t litis ad

Announcemenl ...Extraordinary !
While I do not believo in tho advertisements often used to catch trade, such as
"On account of going ont of business," removal, overstocked, etc., and which are
claptraps in most instances, as good business men are not overstocking, removing,
experimenting, etc., which in the end, would be at their patrons expense. But at
times there are circumstances which one has no control over, such as the nnnsual
wet month of June, which entirely destroys tho STRAW HAT TRADE for that
month, and whereas I received eight (8) large cases of
Men's and Boys' Straw Hats,
Which are so bulky in their nature, and for my want of store room for my new
and large assortment of MEN'S, YOUTH'S and BOYS' CLOTHING which I am
