When Maxim, the famous gun in ventor, placed his gun before a commit tee of Judges, lie stated Its carrying power to be much below what lie felt sure the gun would accomplish. The result of the trial was therefore a great surprise, instead of disappointment. It is the same with the manufactures of Cliamlierluin's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. They do not pub licly boast of nil tills remedy will ac complish, but prefer to let the users make the statements. What they do claim, is that it will positively cure diarrhoea, dysentery, pains in the stom ach and bowels and Iihh never been known to fail. For sale by Keir & Cass Notice. The O.
