I have suffered, for
years, from Catarrh,
which was so severe
that it destroyed my

After trying other

An Estimate of The Cost of Campaign
"It will cost about S100.000 to
fit out all the campaign clubs in
this city," said a dealer in cam
paign goods yesterday. "The
parades are going to- bo larger
than ever before, and the style of
uniform to be worn more elaborate
and expensive than in past years.
What does it cost to fit a man out?
Well, uniforms can be bought as
low as 75 cents, and they can be
bought for $5, the price depending
of course on the quality of the
goods. I have bepn in this busi
ness a great many years," said the
dealer, "and it seems to me that
with each succeeding campaign
the desire for good para"ding out
fits increases. Oh, yes, there have
been great improvements in the
manufacture oi uniforms. Some
time ago the men used to turn out
with colored paper capes and
paper bands around their hats, but
you see very little of that in these
limes. From the paper caps they
turned to oilcloth, and this year
there is a big demand for substan
tial cloth capes. Oilcloth is but
little used now.
"The wearing of leggins will
also be very much in vogue. They
are made of canvas, and cost from
55 cents to 50 cents a pair. Capes
can be bought anywhere from 2a
cents to $1, and the torches are
selling at $25 per 100.
"There has been a marked im
provement in the torches. I have
patented one here that is warrant
ed not to leak, and can be handled
all the evening without soiling
either the parader's clothes or
hands. There are many novel de
signs in these flaming lights, the
flambeau of ancient pattern being
the most popular with .clubs that
are fitted out regardless of ex
pense. With some of the torches
a very startling effect can be pro
duced, and at a signal from the
captain the whole column will
burst forth in flame. This is done
by means of an air tubo leading
from the base of the flame to the
bottom of the torch. By blowing
in this, the flame will shoot up
two feet high.
"But the most money is spent
on banners. Those that are swung
across the streets in front of the
headquarters of political clubs cost
from 75 to $500, the price vary
ing according to the amount of
work on them. Of course a ban
ner on which there is nothing but
the name of the club and its
candidate doesn't come very high,
but if the picture of the president
ial and vice-Dresidcntial candidates
are wanted on the services of a
good photo-painter are required,
and the cost willbe much higher.
The number of banners now being
used is much larger than usual,
and every club, no matter what its
size, wants a banner of some kind.
"There is also a great demand
for transpai encics. They cm be
made at almost any price, the cost
varying according to size and the
nature of the inscriptions to be
put on them. My season lasts
from the middle of August to Oc
tober 1st, and it takes fifty per
sons all their time to manufacture
Most conspicuous among the
novelties that will appear in the
street parades during the cam
paign will be miniatures of the old
log cabin occupied by president
Harrison, cider barrels and caged
coons. These will be mounted on
long poles and carried in the van
of the parades. A Ninth-street
dealer in animals now holds a
number of orders for live coons,
and he is going to put in a stock
of them in anticipation of a big
demand. An enterprisingcarpen
t'er is manufacturing a large num
ber of small lor; cabins to fill'
orders, of which he expects agreat
rush as the campaign advances.

Making A Living.
The writer has been all up and
down this land from coast to coast,
and from the lakes to the gulf, and
has stayed in many quarters long
enough to see what was actually
being done. The result of his ob
servation is that more depends
upon the person than upon
the locality or surrounding,
as to successes or failure. Every
where he has seen thrifty people,
and right among them shiftless
drones, who stood around, waiting
for something to turn up, cursing
their luck, and wondering why
their neighbors prospered more
than themselves. Thrifty people
are invariably industrious and
economical, while those not pos
sessed of said qualities but seldom
prosper. The American people
seem to be naturally restless and
always seeking for something bet
ter, and that spirit in part accounts
for the wonderful progress of this
country. But many individuals
are inclined to carry the matter to
an extreme, being ever anxious to
be on the move.
A rollim; stone is said to not
gather much moss, and the sad ex
perience of thousands of wander
ers is that roving people are not
likely to accumulate much. One
who is reasonably well suited in
his present homo, and has good
health, will generally not make
a mistake in remaining there, pro
vided he has the pluck to grasp
opportunities around him and
mako the most of them. It is
truly said that some people would
make a living anywhere, and it is
equally as true that some would
fail under the most favorable cir
cumstances. This county is good
enough, and presents openings
enough for all in it to make at
least a good living if nothing
more. J'olk County Itemizcr.
To old persons and those who fear to
