Tariff and Politics.
There was a lot of hard-headed
sense in the remarks of an Indiana
delegate when the subject of a
permanent tariff commission was
under discussion at the Chicago
conference. Said he
My name's Jim Bingham. I'm
fro.ri Indiana and I want to say-
that down in my state W3 are
not afraid of our Congressmen.
f urtnermora, we don t believe
that they will hand over any of

Owing to the fact that;, many of the
counties have been unable to have a day
set apart for their particular county, this
will give them a grand opportunity to
make good the loss. The 28 'of Septem

counties, will suffice to furnish abundant
fruit for all visitors. :

Geo. A. Sherman, Libbcri Red Mills,

treated by physicians for twelve years ;
had taken a well known kidney medicine
and other remedies that were tecom-
mended but got no relief until I began
using Fo'.ey'a Kidney Cure. The first
half bottle relieved me and four bottles
have cured me ol this terrible) disease.
Before I began takins Foley's Kidney

Biliousness, dyspepsia, loss of appetite,
disturbed sleep, nervousness, headache,
giddiness and drowsiness, wind and pain
or fullness of the stomach after meals,
cold chills and flushings of heat, short

cheques of physical bankruptcy.
The man who suffers from these dis
orders and neglects them will soon be in
the relentless grasp of some fatal disease.
If he iri Biturally narrow chested and
shallow innged, it will probably be con
sumption; if his father or mother died of
paralysis or some nervous trouble, it will
probably be nervous exhaustion or pros
tration, or even insanity; if there is a
taint in the family blood, it will be blood
or skin disease; if he lives in a new or a
low, swampy country, it will be malaria;
if he lives a life of exposure, it may bo
rheumatism. There Is one safe course for
a man to follow who finds himself "out of
sorts "-and suffering from the symptoms
described. It is to resort to Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. This medi
cine makes the appetite keen, corrects all
disorders of the digestion, renders assimi
lation perfect, invigorates the liver, puri
fies and enriches the blood and builds
firm, healthy flesh and nerve tissue. It
cures almost all diseases that result from

the brain and nerves. Bronchial, throat,
