The First Sign
01 failing health, whether in the form ol
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
sense of General 'Weariness and Loss oi
Appetite, should suggest the use of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is most effective for giving tone and
strength to the enfeebled system, pro
moting tho digestion and assimilation of
food, restoring the nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, and vitalizing the blood.
Ten years ago my health began to fail.
I was troubled with adistressinc Cough,
Night Sweats, "Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I- tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, nut
became so weak that I could not go up
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended me to try Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, which I did, and I am now
as healthy and strong as ever. Mrs.
E. L. "Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I havo
also prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
believe it to be the best blood medicino
evercompounded. W. F. Fowler, M. D.,
D. D. S., Greenville, Tenn.
It would bo impossible for me to de
scribe what I suffered from Indigestion
and Headache up to the time I began
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
tho care of various physicians, and'tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for & short time, my headache disap-
S eared, and my stomach performed its
uties more perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
Harley, Springneld, Mass.
I havo been greatly benefited by the
prompt use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
tones and invigorates the system, rccu-
late3 tho action of tho digestive and
assimilative organs, and vitalizes the
blood. It is, without donbt, tho most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.

AN EDUCATED TEAMP.
He Talks Philosophy With a Eeparter
And is Supported by Pools.
Among the tramps who haunt
the shade of -Battery Park there is
now and then a man of education
and philosophic cast of mind.
While waiting for the Gover
nors Island boat recently a re
porter fell in with such a man. In
stead of giving a sketch of his life
or an account of his travels he
straightway began to moralize.
His name was Merton, or Morton,
and he claimed to bo a Harvard
graduate. He said ho was a mem
ber of a Boston publishing hrm.
But there was a hard, brassy look
about his countenance that gave
the lie to everthing he said. His
audacity alone commanded respect,
and when ho assumed his most
brazen air tho reporter gave him a
quarter just or luck.
When asked it pride did not
sometimes make him wish to return
to the world and be a man once
more, he lifted his lazv eyes lan
guidly and said:
"Ao; 1 am happier than most
people. Why shouldn't I be? I
don't want for anything and never
have any trouble to worry about.
The ordinary man has business in
terests and a wife and children to
support.' For these he toils and
"What does it profit him? A
thousand to one his ambition will
be disapointud, and he grow tired
of his wife. Men and women soon
fade, and no one can be young for
ever. Then the children will grow
up and begin the battle of life, as
their (father began it before them.
Engrossed with their own cares
they become estranged, and the
father ends the struggle a worn-
out, discontented old man, with
nothing to hope for, and nothing
to look back upon, except a weary
life of hard work. How many
succeed? How many arc satisfied
in having attained their desires!
Believe me, it is better to remain
as I am. I have no responsibili
ties, no ambitions and no work.
"How do I manage to live?
Thanks. Your action in giving
me this quarter is the answer.
Why you gave it to me I do not
know. It may be that you are
generous, or that I have amused
you, or that it tickles your self es
teem to indulge in these little nets
of charity. Whatever motive may
have prompted you, there are
thousands who for some reason or
other are willing to contribute to
the support of just such philoso
phers as I am. In plain words, I
am a man who allows his living ex
penses to be paid by the commu
nity. This coin represents just 25
cepts worth of work which you
have done for; me. No man need
labor while so "many fools are will
ing to support him." Neio York

For quickness in raising money
for business enterprises, Hutchi
son, Kans., seems to outrank some
of the large cities. They called a
meeting out there for such a pur
pose, and after the hall was filled
locked the door. A local paper
tells that work then began, and in
just one hour and fifteen minutes
the sum of $224,000 was sub
scribed. Safe and sure to regulate the
bowels, Ayer's Cathartic Pills
never fail to give satisfaction.

sicians. A French company with a cap

on shore from one years end to
