Day and Night
During an acuto attack of BroncMtis, a
ceaseless tickling in the throat, and an
exhausting, hacking cough, afflict the
sufferer. Sleep is banished, and great
prostration follows. This disease is also
attended "with Hoarseness, and some
times Loss of Voice. It is liable to be
come chronic, involve the lungs, and
terminate fatally. Ayer's Cherry Pecto
ral affords speedy relief and cure in cases
of Bronchitis. It controls the disposition
to cough, and induces refreshing sleep.
I have been a practising physician for
twenty-four years, and. for the nast
twelve, have suffered from annual at-H
tacks of Bronchitis. After exhausting
all the usual remedies
I tried Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. It
effected a speedy cure. G. Stoveall,
M. D., Carrollton, Miss.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is decidedly the
best remedy, within my knowledge, for
chronic Bronchitis, and all lung diseases.
M. A. Bust, M. D., South Paris, Me.
I was attacked, last winter, with a
severe Cold, which grew .worse and
settled on my Lungs. By night sweats
I was reduced almost to a skeleton. My
Cough was incessant, and I frequently
spit blood. My physician told me to
give up business, or'l would not live a
month. After taking various remedies
without relief, I was finally
Cured By Using
two bottles of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I am now in perfect health, and able to
resume business, after having been pro
nounced incurable with Consumption.
S. P. Henderson, Saulsburgh, Penn.
For years I was in a decline. I had
weak luilgs, and suffered from Brou
chitis and Catarrh. Ayer's Cherry Pec
toral restored me to health, and I have
been for a long timo comparatively vig
orous. In case of a sudden cold I always
resort to the Pectoral, and find speedy
relief. Edward E. Curtis, Rutland, Vt.
Two years ago I suffered from a severe
Bronchitis. The physician attending
me became fearful that the disease would
terminate in Pneumonia. After trying
various medicines, without benefit, he
prescribed Ayer's Cherry Pectoral,
which relieved mo at once. I continued
to take this medicine, and was cured.

Presuming that any institution
or movement, which affects morals,
or politics, is either rigjht or wrong;
presuming that nothing is politic
ally right that is morally wrong;
it follows that the liquor business,
being such an institution is either
right or wrong, and that prohibi
tion, being such a movement, is
also, either right or wrong. The
institution and the movement be
ing diametrically opposite, it is a
logical conclusion that if one is
right the other is wrong.
Right, morally and politically,
must bring the greatest good to
the greatest number, therefore the
body politic ought to be morally
right; the voters decide on great
questions which is right or wrong
at the ballot box. On the 8th of
November next the voters of the
commonwealth of Oregon are
called on to decide for either pro
hibition or the liquor business.
Much has been written, more has
been said, on this important ques
tion, called very often a vexed
question. Writers and speakers
can vex most any question. With
me it i3 a plain duty: doing right,
Let the honest voter not be blind
folded by the "learned counsel," on
either side, but keeping the right
or wrong axiom in view, let us de
cide by ballot if prohibiting liquor
shall bring the greatest good to
the greatest number, in the name
of right, in the name of our homes,
our wives and our little ones, let
Oregon voters prohibit. But if
the liquor business brings the
greatest good to the greatest num
ber, then in the name of

One of tho secrets of health is the
concentration of ..vitality. The re
cruiting of the vital principle is douo
effectually by Bbandreth's Pills.
"Health finds happiness in the mere
sense of " existence." Buandbetu's
Pills help nature to reassert her own
when she has been forced to vacate
her stronghold in the body. When
an enemy attacks a fort all the
forces are concentrated at the point
of attack to resist the onslaught.
So with the body. BnANDRETu'a
PrLLs concentrate all one's vitality to
throw off the encroaching disease.
Get Braxdbetb's Pills. Be sure to
take no other.

I Commissioner Sparks, of the
general land office, has rendered a
decision in the case ot the .North

Rudolph Distler, on appeal from
a decision of the Olympia, "Wash

for a quarter section within the
limits of the withdrawal for indem

was also embraced in the list of
selections for indemnity purposes
by the company filed May 12,
1886. Distler made proof, show

as to residence, improvements, etc.
The local officials held that he

"I unhesitatingly add my
e3timony to the great bene"
hts to be derived from Sim
mons Liver Regulator. I
was afflicted for several
years with disordered Liver,
which resulted in a severe
attack of Jaundice. I had
good medical attendance, but -it
failed to restore me to
the enjoyment of my for
mer health. I then tried
tne most renowned physi
cians of Louisville, Ivy., but
all to no purpose, where
upon I was induced to try
Simmons Liver Regulator.
I found immediate benefit
from its use, and it ulti
