Is There Iron
Groat achievers,
men and women who
bring things to pass,
obstacles or no obsta
cles, have an abun-
dancoof iron in their
blood. They take
the initiativi" tliov
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
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 Decline In Meat Productlon.
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

passing train nnd Iwcamo aumaungeablo
Tho horso pluuged and,' nlthough Mr.

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

no better. Aftcr thls had gono ou for a
couplo of years I naw an account in n
paper of how a man was curcd of creep
ing paralysis by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pnlo Pcoplo, nnd I thought per
baps they would holp mo. 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

Pills for Palo Peoplo to evcry one whom

Mr. Davis is a marino engincer on the

took ploco cleven ycars ago, he has not
had a toucb of tbo complaint sinco his
niorvclous care by Dr. Williams' Pink

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
