Is There Iron Groat achievers, men and women who bring things to pass, obstacles or no obsta cles, have an abun- in Your dancoof iron in their blood. They take the initiativi" tliov Blood puah ahead, regardleas of obetaclea; they succeed. There is no quality of character that gains more admiration and respect than that which enables a person to form a definite purposo and then con centrate all his energy in executing it. To possess and use this quality, it is necessary to be in a eound mental and physical condition, to have an abun dance of iron in the blood, which gives Btamina, vigor and endurance. 71 ironizes the Jrepttron ishes, etrength- ena and eteadies the nerves and produces the above result. It is a new and thoroughly scientiflo prep ar.ition, combining iron with the best tpnics and nutrienta; is agreeable to tno taate, acceptable to the stomach and readily assimilnted, and has the great advantage of not causing consti pation nor mjuring the teeth.

The Manufacturers' Record of Balti more, dlscusslng the present Bltuatlon wlth regard to the actlon of the beef trust and the prices of meat, produces a chapter of interestlng statlsttcs with re gard to the meat productlon of the past 20 years. These flgures show that while there was a galn In the number of cat tle, sheep and hogs between 1880 and 1892 of 40 per cent., there was a decline between 1892 and 190"0 of nearly 20 per cent., though durlng the same elght year perlod the populatlon of the country had Incrcased ovcr 11,000,000. The Record says; "It ls a rather startllng sttuatlon to flnd that, notwlthstandlng the great in crease In the meat-consumlng capaclty of the country by vlrtue of the greater pros perlty In 1900, as compared wlth 1892, the more general employment of tho people and the galn In actual populatlon of 11, fino.OOO, or, say, about 1C per cent., there was a gradual decline of 27,000,000 head of meat-produclng anlmals in that period, or a decrease of nearly 20 per cent, Un der such condltlons an advance ln prlce was Inevltable. Followlng thls eltuatlon there came a decrease last year ln the corn crop In round flgures of about 1, 000,000,000 bushels, or, roughly speaklng, B0 per .cent., and the same condltlons whlch shortened the corn crop reduced the grass of the West nnd Southwest." Tho bellef of the Record, based on these facts, Is that farmers and stock ralsers are llkely to have things pretty much thelr own way ln llve stock prices for s-'veral years to come, whlle the con suml.ig publlo must meet the sttuatlon as best It may. The lesson It draws ls that the farmers of the East ought at once to turn thelr attentlon to stock raising. r NEWFANE. Mrs. Ellza M. Cushlng.

IIo wnj plokod np unconscious and it was nt flrst thought his ncck had bcen broken; bnt an cxnmination rovealed that this was not tho caso. When ho cnmo to hisscnseshe was found partially pnralyzcd. In telling tho story, Mr. Davis said to tho reporter of the Mauistco Tinics: "It wns thrco days and nights nfter tho nc cident beforo I camo to know nnyono, and th(iu I found my left sido wns pnr alyzcd. I could uot movo ovcu n fluger or too on my left side aud my left oyc was nlTected. A doctor treatcd mo for threo months nfter I wns burt but I got no better.

And thoy did. I began to got better immediately aud kept taking them till I was curcd. I am doing my work now without diffl culty and rccommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo Peoplo to evcry one whom I henr complaiu."

It ls a roosonable claim that if Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pnle Pcoplo will cnre severo cases of this nnture they will readily accoinplish as good resufts in lesser nfllictions of ths nerves. That this is so is substantiatcd by stntemeuta from thousands of pooplo who havo been cured by them.
