Premium on Gold.
New York, July 31 A few years ago
had it been reported that there was a
premium on gold we should have seen
much anxiety, some paralysis of busi
ness and all sorts of confusion in the
market. Yesterday gold commanded a
premium in this city, and, although
only in the inner circles
is this fact
known, yet it was not because of any
apprehension of trouble if the fact be
came public, but out of courtesy to
those who have been willing to pay the
premium that no announcement of it
was made. It is learned on high au
thority that the Bank of England ob
tained in this city 190,000 or approxi
mately $950,000 worth of gold, and got
it by paying a premium for it.
It bought the gold as it would buy
any commodity, as Liverpool factors
would buy wheat, and it undoubtedly
bought this gold in the United States
because it found that it could get it
cheaper here than elsewhere. In by
gone days, when conditions were differ
ent, if the Bank of England looked to
ward the United States for gold it got it
by familiar methods. It is said in Wall
street to-day that this outright purchase
of American gold by the Bank of Eng
land is unprecedented, although some
qualify this statement by saying that it
certainly has not happened in recent
years. There is something of exultation
here that we are able to sell gold as a
commodity, that we have enough of it
to supply any probable demand and
that the course of affairs makes it ex"
tremely improbable that gold will go
out of this country this year in any
other way than as a loan or as a pur
chase. Teachers' Examination.
Notice is hereby given that for the
purpose of making an examination of all
persons who may offer themselves as
candidates for teachers of the schools of
this county, the county school superin
tendent thereof will hold a public exam

the first warnings of those troubles which
lead to consumption and death.
Tht hacking cough, spitting of Mood,
weak lungs, and all similar troubles of the
organs of breathing, will surely lead to
consumption, if they are not already the
signs of it Then there are the other indi
cations of the approach of consumption,
such as night-sweats, emaciation, or wast
ing away of flesh from bad nutrition, which,
if neglected, lead to certain death.
Ninety-eight per cent of all the cases of
weak lungs, bleeding lungs, lingering and
obstinate coughs, and other bronchial and

" I had been troubled with bronchitis for sev
eral years," writes Mrs. Orlin O'Hara, Box 114,
Fergus Falls, Ottertail Co. , Minn. " In the first
place, I had sore throat. I doctored with differ
ent physicians and took various medicines, but
got no relief. I raised from my throat a sticky
substance like the white of an egg. Could not
sleep, and had made up my mind that I would
not live through the winter. I took Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery and 'Favorite Pre
scription ' alternately, and iu a few days began
to see that I was better. I took eight bottles. I
have not felt as well in years as since using
