By a confcrcnco with the mayor of
this city and tlio prcsldont of tho Com

on Sunday for some time
Tho editor of this papor, who Is pres

themselves good pooplo for having dono
.Misrepresentation novor yet accom

oiiglit to bo commended.
So far as Tho Journal Is nblo to

Salem Sunday closing was novcr nc

to produce ono fact. Years of earnest
work and faith havo produced ond
faot about modicino that is deserving
of mention ho re. If people who aro

through overwork, dissipation or ex
posure can got a remedy that will make
rich rod blood from tho food thoy ejit,
thoir return to health is assured. Good
blood is tho lifo of tho body as woll as
tho ncrvos. Weak, sickly, pale pooplo

Sold by druggists for 73c per box, or
3 boxes for $8. This tonic acts in a

it is certainly n supposablo caso that a

Ideas, seeing much In tho workings of

may adopt somo -promising method of
