An Interesting Lecturer.
To-morrow Dight the renowned or
iental traveler, Wad-el-Ward, will be
gin a course of lectures at Liberty
Hall. Yesterday's News, speaking of
himf says: "The success of the course
aow being given under the auspices
of the Y. M. 0. A. was apparent last
night in the large audience that
gathered in the tabernacle to hear
Wad-el-Ward on A Trip to Mecca
with the Mohammodans.' The fluent,
easy manner of the leoturer pleases
all. His descriptions of scenery and
events are dear, natural and conveyed
in plain language, are readily followed
and retained. Just enough of the
ludicrous was given, keeping the
audience in good humor from first
to leoturer abounds with descriptive,
narrative personal adventure, in
structive incident, and explanation of
the oustoms of the eastern world.
The leoture was novel' and interest
ing, holding the closest attention of
the audience for one hour and three
quarters, not one person leaving dur
ing that time."

In Brief, And to the Point.
Dyspepsia is dreadful. Disordered
liver is misery. Indigestion is a foe
to good nature.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of tho most complicated and won
derful things in existence. It is easily
put out of order.
Greasy food, tough food, sloppy
food, bad cookery, mental worry, late
hours, irregular habits, and many
other things which ought not to be,
have made tho American people a
nation of dyspeptics.
But Green's AugUBt Flower has
done a wonderful work in reforming
this sad buaineas and making the
American people so healthy that they
can enjoy their meals and be happy.
Remember: No happiness without
health. But Green's August Flower
brings health and happiness to the

Catarrh to Consumption.
Catarrh in its destructive force stands noxt
to and undoubtedly leads on to consumption.
It is therefore singular that those afflicted
with this fearful discaso should not make it
the object of their lives to rid themselves of
it. Deceptive remedies concocted by ignorant
pretenders to medical knowledges have
weakenod tho confidence of tho great
majority of sufferers in all advertised rem
edies. Tboy become resigned to a lifo of
xnlsory rather than torturo themselves with
But this will never do. Catarrh must bo
met at every stags and combated with all
our might. In many cases tho di?eao has
assumed dangerous symptoms- Iho bones
and cartilage of tho noso. tho organs of hear
ing, of seeing and of tasting so affected as to
be useless, the uvula so olongatcd, the throat
so inflamed and irritated as t9 produco a
constant and distressing cough.
SAXFORD'd Radical Cuuk meets every
phase of Catarrh, from a simple head cold to
the most loathsomo and destructive stages.
It is local and constitutional, lnxtant in re
