Washington, Aug. 11. home con

that in some unexplained manner the
bureau officers had been guilty of circu

caused to be prepared circular No. 113,
a pamphlet of fifty-three printed pages,
giving much information respecting
bond issues, paper currency and the
like. When an application for informa

could be found in this pamphlet, the
bureau chief receiving the letter would

a man's body on the ground in the rear
of the cattle corral of Ennis & Co., near

vas a small pistol, and above the center
of the forehead was a wound made by
the fatal bullet, - The man's face and
shirt were covered with blood and the
body lay in a pool of blood.

ball took it was impossible for the man
to have. committed the deed himself.. ',

None But Ayer's at the World's Fair.
Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the extra
ordinary distinction of having been the
only blood purifier allowed on exhibit at
the world's fair, Chicago. Manufact
urers of other sarsaparillas sought by
every means to obtain a showing of their
goods, but 'they were all turned away
under the application of the rule for
bidding the. entry of patent medicines
and nostrums. The decision of the
world's fair authorities in tavor of Ayer's
Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows:
'I Ayer's Sareaparilia is : not a patent
medicine. It does not belong to the
list ' of nostrums; , It is here on its

Liver Regulator is, that it is purely
vegetable and strongly tonic. Then too,
it is better .than Pills because easier to
take in liquid or powder and with no
griping, while the relief from ' Constipa
tion,. Biliousness, Sick Headache and
Dyspepsia is quick' and sure. . "I find
Simmons Liver Regulator a very safe
and valuable family . medicine." Rev.

Reduction In Railroad Fares. .
As there will be numerous requests
for reduced rates on account of political
meetings during the coming contest, it
has been decided that, in order to treat
all parties alike, a on fare rate will be
made by the O. R. & N. Co. lor various
meetings of this character.
This of course is intended only for oc
casions where there is sufficient number
to justify a reduction in rates. This is
done so that there wil' be no partiality
in favor of any one party.
