CWsm&B, Accountant, MConCo 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 Without Relief, 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.

Editor Asterlvn: 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, defeating wrong. 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 can't finish the sentence, but then I am a Prohibitionist.

CONCENTItATIC TOUB VITALITY. 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 ern, Pacific Railroad company vs. Rudolph Distler, on appeal from a decision of the Olympia, "Wash ington territory, land office. On November 18, 1885, Distler pre sented his homestead application for a quarter section within the limits of the withdrawal for indem nity purposes, alleging settlement April 28, 1885. The tract in dis pute has been continuously with drawn since August 13, 1887, and was also embraced in the list of selections for indemnity purposes by the company filed May 12, 1886. Distler made proof, show ing full compliance with the law as to residence, improvements, etc. The local officials held that he should be allowed to enter the tract, and that the selection should be cancelled. This case is similar in all im portant particulars to the cele brated Guilford Miller case, to which tho committee call attention as follews: "Referring to the lot ter by his excellency, Grover Cleveland, president of the United States, in the matter of the case of Guilford Miller, I must refuse to approve tho selection by the com pany, a settlement right having at tached to the traot prior to said selection, lour decision is there fore affirmed. Distler's applica tion is held for allowance. Should this become final and the selection be cancelled, the company might select land in lieu thereof should a deficiency exist upon which no settlement claim exists at the date of selection.
