Ayer's Pills. They are invaluable.
For some vears I was a victim to Liver

For years I have relied more upon
Ayer's Pills than anything else, to

On Mav 3d began in New York
the trial of another of the long list
of "boodle men" who waxed fat
in 1884 and boup-ht a way for the
Broadway railroad through the
board of aldermen. Thomas B.
Kerr was the treasurer of the
Seventh-avenue railway company
and is indicted for bribery and
conspiracy. He was one of Sharp's
right-hand men; and the testi
mony before the investigating
committee how strange it is that
the man who conducted this in
vestigation, ex-senator Conkling,
and the man against whom it was
principally aimed, Sharp, are both
dead! showed that he had tho
handling for Sharp of huge sums
of money. He paid bills for
Sharp, in oral orders, of sums as
big as $25,000, taking no receipts;
he brought to Sharp's lawyer's
office on the day of the grand
"round-up" on June liJ, lb84, no
less than 8500,000 in cash, and de
scribed how it, with the $200,000
and more from other sources, was
divided among the lobbyists and
lawyers who had "stirred around"
in behalf of this important enter
prise. Sharp gavo him over $300,
000 for "disbursements" that ho
had made in aid for the same
caube. Kerr's laV3'er is Bourke
Cochran, who saved Shaip from
tho humiliation of state prison
garb. District attorney Fellows is
no match for him or for any other
clover lawyer. Tho district attor
ney's office is in a hopeless state of
imbecility and incompetency, its
representatives being reprimanded
every few days by the judges for
the slovenly preparation of cases
or for gross carelessness. A7". Yl
