What is this "nervous tronble" w itli
which so many seem now to bo nf
ilicted? If you will remember a few
years ago the word Malaria was com
paratively unknown, to-day it is as
common ns any word in the English
languagetyet this word covers only
the meaning of another word nsed by
our forefathers in times past So it
is with nervous diseases, as they and
Malaria are intended to cover what
our grandfathers called Billionsness,
and all are caused by troubles that
arise from a diseased condition ot the
Liver which in performing its func
tions finding it cannot dispose ot the
b.le through the ordinary channel is
compelled to pass it off through the
system, causing nervous troubles,
Malaria, Billions Fever, etc. You
who are suffering can well appreciate
a cure. We recommend Green's Au
gust Flower. Its cures are mar
velous. A man with a pair ot patent thills
is scaring the people halt to death in
Grand Rapids, Mioh. Tho thills are
calculated to be used in driving run
away horses, as they are made to be
come detached from the carriage
when the runaway is in its giddiest
period, allowing the vehicle to stop
and the horse to run along alone it
he wants to. The wreFehed exhibitor
is accompanied by a woman and a
horse, and whenever Bho strikes a
town she drives the animal npon the
principal street and lets him run
away. And how "ho does run! The
woman meanwhile waves her hands
and screams, and acts like she was
about to go into a fit, while the spec
tators crowd the street and stand
frozen with horror, when presto,
change. Tho horse becomes de
tached, gallops another block and
stops, and the buggy quietly slows
up, and the woman jumps out and
