There Is more Catarrh In this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and for years it was sup
posed to be incurable. Doctors prescribed
local remedies, and by constantly failing
to cure with local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Catarrh is a local disease,
greatly influenced by constitutional con
ditions and therefore requires constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Medi
cine, manufactured by F. J. Cheney &
Co.. Toledo, Ohio, Is a constitutional
remedy, is taken Internally and acts
thru the Blood on the Mucous Surfaces
of the System. One Hundred Dollars re
ward Is offered for any case that Hall's'

The Bulgarian bachelor who now
groans under an annual tax. equiv
alent to Ss 4d a year, has less cause
to grumble than many a British celi
bate who shied at the altar a couple
of centuries or more ago.
During the 13 years from 1695 to
1708 the man over twenty-five who
shirked Ills mntrimonlal duty was
called on to pay £12 10s ($02.50) for
a duke, a tax which yielded to the
revenue about £1,000 ($5,000) a week.
More than this, tn those good old
times the Briton had to pay a tnx
when he took himself a wife, and nn*
other every time he qualified as fa*
tber. Thus, a duke’s nuptials cost
him £50 4s ($252) ; Ids heir, ¿30 2s
($152), and for each later male addi
tion to the family his Joy was discount
ed by a payment of £25 2s ($127).
The benedict whose Income wns less
limn £50 ($250) a year had to pay 2s
(Id (GO cents) for his bride and 2s (48)
cents) every time he became a father.

Oldest Confection In the World.
The greater part of the black stick
licorice consumed Is derived from
Spain, where It Is made from the Juice
of the plant and mixed with starch to
prevent It from melting In hot weather.
The licorice plant is a shrub that at
tains a height of three feet and It
grows wild where Its roots rench the
water, It flourishes especially on the
banks of the Tigris and Euphrates
rivers. Since the valley of the Ett-
phrates contained one of the earliest
civilizations In the world, the prob
ability Is that licorice Is about the
oldest confection In the world, and the
taste which the hois and girls of to
day like so well was enjoyed by the
youngsters of S.tMJO years ago.
