A THREATENED BEEF PAMINE.
Gladstone Sure of Ultimate Success.
Chicago, Aug. 26. A morning
paper says that it is assumed in many
quarters that a beef famine ia not far
away. Estimates as'to the loss in
the northwest last winter are that iu
Montana there were 400,000 head, and
in Idaho about 100,000; in Wyoming
about 3C0.0C3 and in Colorado about
500,000, or about 850,000 head in all.
During the summer on account of
the excessive drought it is estimated
that the losses in the beef producing
states will swell the total to 1,500,000
head of beeves.

THE GEOBGIA CONVICT SYSTEM.
Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 26. At last the
ax has fallen and the iniquitous con

have to go. By executive order
signed under great excitement
governor Gordon has called on the
lessees of the penitentiary, companies
Nos. 2 and 3, to show cause why their
leases should not be annulled and
there is no doubt as to the governor's
intention to declare the lease an
nulled owing to the violation of its
provisions by the lessees.

That is to say, your lungs. Also
your breathing machinery." Very
wonderful machinery it is. Not only
the larger air-passages, but the thous
ands of little tubes and cavities lead
ing from them.
When these are clogged and choked
with matter wbich ought not to be
there, your lungs cannot half do their
work. And what they do, they can
not do well.
Call it cold, cough, croup, pneu
monia, catarrh, consumption'or any of
the family of throat and nose and head
and lung obstructions, all are bad.
All ought to be got rid of. There is
just one sure way to get rid of them,
that is to take Boschee's German
Syrup, which any druggist will sell
you at 75 cents a bottle. Even if
everything else has failed you, you
may.depend upon this for certain.
