There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease, and prescrib
ed local remedies, and by constantly
failing to cure with local treatment, pro
nounced it incurable. Science has
proven catarrh to be a constitntional
disease and therefore requires constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure,
manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co.,
Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional
cure on the market. It is taken inter
nally in doses from 10 drops to a tea
spoonful. It acts directly on the blood
mucous surfaces of the system. They
offer one hundred dollars for any case it
fails to cure. Send for circulars and tes

It is a big thing to say but nevertheless
true, that a great multitude of people
have crowned Simmons Liver Regulator,

J For shortening' never use more
than two-thirds as much Cotto-
jf lene as yon would of lard. When
frying with Cottolene always put
it in a cold pan, heating it with
the pan. Cottolene produces the
best results when very hot, but as
it reaches the cooking point much
sooner than lard, care should be
taken not to let it burn when hot
enough, it will delicately brown

Follow these directions in using;

One night when Mr. Isaac Reese was
stopping with me, says M. F. Hatch, a
prominent merchant of Quartermaster,
Washiugton, I heard him groaning. On
going to his room I found him suffering
from cramp colic. ' He was in such ag
ony I feared he would die. I hastily
gave him a dose of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. He was
soon relieved and the first words he
uttered were, "what, was that stuff you
gave me?" I informed him. A few
days ago we were ' talking about the
attack and he said he was never without
that remedy now. I have used it in my
family for several vears. I know its
worth and do not hesitate to recommend
it to my friends and enstomers. For

Kansas City, Aug. 12. Thirteen a
loon-keepers were arrested last night
for persisting in their disregard of the
Snnday-closing law. It looks as though
"dry" Sundays had come to stay.
"It is the best patent medicine in the
world" is what Mr. E. M. Hartman, of
Marquam, Oregon, says of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
"What leads me to make this assertion
is from the fact that dysentery in its
worst form was prevalent around here
last summer and it never took over two
or three doses of that remedy to effect a
complete cure." For sale by Blakeley &
