There's an intangible, but nevertheless
definite line that .exists in lire. Step be
yond its border and the gloom of pain, the
poison of despair stares you in the face.
Health is the sunny land of life, disease the
gloom. It is asserted that the mysterious
border once crossed there can be no return
ing. In many, many cases it is true, pro
vided an UDSklllful practitioner has the In
dividual in charge. Not so with Dr. Ott
man, the eminent specialist of the Drs. B.
S. a Co., Muskegon. Under his manipula
tion and scientific discoveries, and their ap
plication, all functional and organic troubles
aud their consequent evils are banished per
fectly and permanently. Tbe victim, the
sufferer, regains his health and strength and
becomes again a sound being. His marvel
ous skl'l and ability Is not the result of
chance or "luck," but the legitimate growth
of persevering application and unrestrained
research. His cures are vouched for and
substantiated by living proofs, by the
healthy beings who have been restored
through Dr. Ottman's skill.

ONE OF TWO WAY8.
Tbe bladder was created for one purpose,
namely, a receptacle for the urine, and as
such it is not liable to any form of disease
except by one of two ways. tThe first way
is from Imperfect action of the kidney?.
The second way Is from careless local treat
ment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhaalthy kidneys
is the chief cause of bladder troubles. So
the womb, like the bladder, was created
for one purpose, and if not doctored too
much is not liable to weaken or disease,
except in rare cases, it is situated back
of and very close to the bladder, therefore
any pain, disease or inconvenience mani
fested in the kidneys, back, bladder or
unluary passage is often, by mistake, at
ttibuted to female weakness or womb
trouble of some sort The error is easily

ble, has been forced upon us. For near
ly two years prior to tho enactment of
the law of "perfidy and dishonor" its
baneful effects were felt. Since tbe
close of 1802, when it was known that
a Democratic congress and a Democratic
president had been elected, and that
their threat of free trade would be put
into execution, the industrial enter
prises of the Uuited States havo been
paralyzed with fear. The banks foresaw
the impending danger to Americau
manufacturers through the contemplated
influx of cheap foreigu goods, and, fore
seeing the danger, the banks promptly
locked up their capital so that the evils
of tho frco trado policy were felt loug
before tho free trade tariff law was
placed upon onr statutes.
And the evil did not end last week
with tbe substitution of the Diugley
tariff for protection in place of tho law
of "perfidy and dishonor" of tho Demo
cratic party. Anticipating the most
natural idea of protection for American
interests, the foreign manufacturing
and producing interests have taken
every advantage of the miserable "rag
bag production" that emanated from
tho Democratic party and havo flooded
our markets with foreign goods that in
some iustances cannot be consumed
within a twelvemonth.
Of their sufferings history can never
tell, but their patience has been bright
ened by the more recent knowledgo that
a Republican congress would bring re
lief as speedily as the Democratic aud
Popocratio obstructionists in the United
States senate would permit. That relief
hns come, partially only for tho present,
but it will bo permanent and profitable,
we hope, as soon as the last remnants
of the rags aud shoddy products of
cheap European labor have disappeared
from our markets. And what has been
the cost of this experiment with freo
trade, of the practical workings of tho
Democratio doctrine of free raw mate
rial? Its actual cost in dollars and cents
no man can ever estimate, but we can
show bow the business of tho city of
New York was transferred to Loudon as

In tho year 1892, when tho United
States was at the height of its prosperi
ty under the McKinley policy of pro
tection, the volume of business trans
acted in the oity of New York, as rep
resented by tho bank clearings of onr
commercial metropolis, aggregated near
ly $37,000,000,000. But the "deadly
blight" of free trade throw its destruc
tive blust upon us and tho business of
New York city decreased by moro than
$5,000,000,000 duriug tho first year of
the Democratio administration. Iu the
next year, 1894, it decreased by almost
$7,000,000,000 more, making a total
loss of business iu the one city exceed
ing over $12,000,000,000 within two
short yoars. Iu 1895 aud in 1896 thero
was some slight improvement, yet tho
volnme of business transacted in New
York last year, under free trade, was
almost $8,000,000,000 less than iu 1803
But study the effect of our Democrat
ic fiscal policy upon the London market,
upon British trade and upon English
enterprise. With practioally no chauge
in 1892 and 1898, followed by a decline
in 1894,' when onr bnsineae was par
alyzed and millions of onr people were
idle, the business of London grew to
nearly $87,000,000,000 in 1895 and in
1896, its volume then equaling tho ex
tent of onr business in 1892, when we
had protection. In other words, thero
was a complete transfer of prosperity
from the Uuited States to the Uuited
Kingdom nnder the Democratic policy
of free trade. Following aro the entire
bank clearings of the United States,
both at New York and outside of New
Tork, from 1892 to 1896, inclusive:

1807 (4 months). 7,268,096,984 9,271,861,814
Comparing the figures for 1894 with
those ef 1892 we find that tho amount
of business transacted in tho United
States, ns represented by our bank clear
ings, declined at tho rate of $15,500,
000,000 a year within two years under
tho Democratio administration. In the
year 1896 our loss of business had been
almost $11,000,000,000 as compared
with 1892. In 1895 the loss was,almost
$9,000,000,000. In 1898 it was moro
thnn $7,000,000,000. So that since, tho
Republican administration of tho Unit
ed States, under President Harrison,
and during tho Domocratio administra
tion of tho country under President
Cleveland thero hns been a totnl loss of
business, as compared with 1892, aggre
gating the enormous sum of $4.2,000,
300,000 in tho four Domooratio years.
It is impossible to renlizo tho full

wc are determined to fr.co t ho evil
bravely, to bucklo to our strength for a
fight for the restoration of prosperity
under tho Dinghy tnriff. This Will
remain in American history as tho date
of the dawn of a new and bright indus
