Old Veterans Come Back. The football season opened at OAC Saturday with the annual Alumni game. Five hundred peo ple were in the grandstand and on tha sidelines to see Captain "Pap Ha'ygeed" and his oldtime war riors give battle to the '05 team. The first half of the game went to the veterans with a touchdown and a ecore of six, but in tbe second half tbe Collegians drove tbe Alum ni back for a couple of touchdowns and a score of 10, making the final score stand, Collegian?, 10; Alumni 6. When the veierans made their touchdown, which was the only one io the first half, the grandstand went wild, not because it loyed the old men more or the new men less, but because no event of the kind was supposed to be on schedule. The incident came about - both by reason of the strength of the old team and a series of lucky plays. Alter Dolan kicked off, Nash ran the ball in to the 30 yard line. Tne Alumni thereafter in half a dozen bucks had no difficulty in makirjg yardage. Then Nash got away on a fake for 20 yards which was fol lowed by a rliy in which the Vete captured the ball on their por t The ball was etlll 30 yards away from the Collegians goal, but iD the excitement of a mix-up, somebody dropped it, and Tbarp grabbed the oval and sped away for the touchdown. Nash kicked gcal. The half closed with tbe Cdlegians driving" the visitors steadily down the field, but time was called before the goal line could be reached. In the second half the Collegians found no trouble in get ting twice over the line and just before time was called were near enough to try for a place kick which narrowly missed beiog an other score. THE LIGHT OF OTHER DAYS.. Not very many years ago alcohol was used for lighting In combination with .. other fluids under i the name of "Cam- : phene," but it suf-. fered banishment -because it was too dangerous. Alcohol is gener-. ally harmful when ' taken- in the form 01 medicine, espe cially to a delicate system. Dr. Pierce's tls-sue-rebuUdina and function-strengthening plan of treatment is following after Nature's pUm. He uses natural remedies, that is native medicinal roots, prepared by processes wrought out by the expenditure of much time and money, without the use of alco hol, and by skillful combination in the most exact proportions. Used as one of the active ingredients of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, black chkrbybark specially exerts its influence in cases of lung and bronchial troubles, and this "discovery " is, there fore, a sovereign remedy for bronchitis, laryngitis, chronic coughs, catarrh and kindred ailments. Tlie mimes of the medicinal ingredients of this worid-famous remedy are: Golden Seal root, Queen's root. Stone root, Black Cherrybark, Bloodroot and Man drake root. . "I have had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Pierce' s Golden Medical Discovery that I do not hesitate to recommend it, be lieving it to be a wonderful medicine to build up the tissues ot the system," writes Miss Bessie Brown. Secretary Emerson Literary Association, 42S Herman Avenue, Appleton, Wis. "Worry and nervous troubles had com pletely run-down my health and strength; had no appetite, slept badly, and was in a state of nervous collapse. I took twelve bottles in all, and, each week, knew that I was getting better and stronger, until finally I was as well and strong as1! had ever been. I have the utmost faith and confidence in your medicine, and wish to thank you for my good health, which is a blessing to anyone."

Becaus of the bravery of highlanders at Luck now and elsewhere in India during the Indian mutiny the people of England looked about for some way .to show their admiration.

The average man does not save to exceed ten per cent, of his earnings. He must spend nine dollars in living expenses for every dollar saved. That being the case he can not be too careful about unnecessary ex penses. Very often a few cents properly in vested, like buying seeds for his garden, will save several dollars outlay later on. It is the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It costs but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.
