Persons troubled with diarboea will
be interested in. the experience of W. M.
Bush, clerk of the hotel Dorrance, Prov
idence, R. I. He says : "For several
years I have been almost a constant suf
ferer from diarrhoea, the frequent at
tacks completely prostrating me and
rendering me unfit for my duty at this
hotel. About two years ago a traveling
salesman kindly gave me a small bottle
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarhoea Remedy. Much to my sur
prise and delight its effects were imme
diate. Whenever I felt symptoms of the
disease I would fortify myself against
the attack with a few doses of this val
ueabla remedy. The result has been
very satisfactory and almost complete
relief from the affliction." For eale by
Blakeley & Houghton.
There is more Catarrh in this eection
of the country than all othe diseases put
together, and until the last few years
was supposed to be incurable. For a
great many years doctors pronounced it
a local disease, and prescribed local
remedies, and by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced
it incurable. Science has proven catarrh
tobe a constitutional disease, and there
fore requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrah Cure, manufactured by
F. J.. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken internally in dnses from ten
drops to a teasooonful. It acts directly
on the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system. They offer one hundred dollars
for any case it fails to cure. . Send for

Robbed the Grave.
A startling incident of which Mr. John
Oliver of Philadelphia, was the subject
is narrated by him as follows : I was in
a most dreadful condition. My skin
was almost yellow, eyes sunken, tongue
coated, pain continually in back and
sides, uo appetite gradually growing
weaker,day by day. Three physicians
had given me up. Fortunately, a friend
advised trying 'Electric Bitters,' and to
my great joy and surprise, the first bot
tle made a decided improvement I con
tinued their use for three weeks, and am
now a well man. I know they saved
my lite and rqbbed the grave of another
victim." No one should fail to try them.
