She Has Ever Known. , Words of Praia
from a Hew York Lady for
" I would like to add my testimony to
that of others who have tisetl Ayer's
Pills, and to say that I have taken thtun
for many years, and always derived tho
best results from their use. For stom
ach and liver tronbles, and for the cure
of headache canned ly these derange
ments, Ayer's Pills cannot be equaled.
.Wlien my friends ask me what 5s tho
best remedy for disorders of tho stom
ach, liver, or bowels, my invariable
answer is, Ayer's Pills. Taken in sea
son, they will break up a cold, prevent
la grippe, check fever, and regulate the
digestive organs. They are easy to
take, and are, indeed, the best all-round
family medicine I have ever known."

Pains in the email of the back indicate
a diseased condition' of the kidneys.
Owing to the dangerous nature of the
dieases which attack those organs it is
important that measures should be
taken to remove the trouble before it
has become too firmly fixed. Prudence
would suggest the prompt use of Dr. J.
H. McLean's Liver and Kidney Balm
which has specSc action on the liver and
kidneys and will cause an early restora
tion to healthy conditions. Price $1.00
Accident at Kiel.
Kiel, Aug. 14. At the German ship
building yards today a gangway broke
and many workmen were thrown into
the water. Eight bodies have been re
covered. There are a great many of the unfortu
nate ones in this world, greater in num
ber than those who are blessed with
good digestion. To ' some people the
greatest misfortune is not to be able to
eat everything set before tbem. "I suf

everything I ate disagreed with me. I

and you thereby remove the cause of a
multitude of distressing diseases, such as
headaches, indigestion, or dyspepsia,
biliousness, pimples, blotches, eruptions,
boils, constipation, piles, ' fistulas and
maladies too numerous to mention.
If people would pay more attention to
properly regulating the action of their

Pellets are unequaled, is proven by the
fact that once used, they are always in
favor. Their secondary effect is to keep
the bowels open and regular, not to fur

pills. Hence, their great popularity,
with sufferers from habitual constipation,
piles and indigestion.

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 constitutional
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

Chicago, Aug. 14. Under the author
ity, of Federal Judge Showalter, General
McNulta, receiver of the Distilling &
Cattle Feeding Company, sold the prop
erty of that corporation today to the
reorganization committee for $9,800,000.
The only bid was that of the reorganiza

of 17 distilling plants.
There comes a time to all of us, when
we feel mean and "out of sorts" and in a
condition to invite disease. It is then
we need such a remedy as Dr. J. H. Mc

sickness or overwork its invigorating
influence is surprising, promptly restor
