Cough medicines, Ayer's Cherry Pec
toral is in greater demand than ever
2so preparation for Throat and Lung
Troubles is so piompt in its effects, sc
agreeable to the taste, and so widely
known, as this. It is the family medi
cine in thousands of households.
"I have suffered for years from a
bronchial trouble that, whenever I take
cold or am exposed to inclement weath
er, shows itself by a very annoying
tickling sensation in the throat and by
difficulty in breathing. I have tried a
great many remedies, but none does so
well as Ayer'.s Cherry Pectoral which
always gives prompt relief in returns ol
my old complaint." Ernest A. Hepler,
Inspector of Public Roads. Parish Ter
le Bonne, La.
" I consider Ayer's Cherry Pectoral a
most important remedy
For Home Use.
I have tested it curative power, in my
family, many times during the past
thirty years, and have never known it
to fail. It will relieve the most serious
affections of thewthroat and lungs,
whether in children or adults." Mrs.
E. G. Edgerly, Council lilufls, Iowa.
"Twenty years ago -I was troubled
with a disease of the lungs. Doctors
afforded me no relief and considered
my case hopeless. I then began to use
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, ami, before I
had fiY "shed one bottle, found relief. I
ontinued to take this medicine until a
cure wjs effected. I believe that Ayer's
Cher Pectoral saved my life."
Samuci Griggs, "Waukegan, 111.
' bL-c years ago I contracted a severe
-old, which settled on my lungs and
soon d-veloped all tlie alarming symp
toms of Consumption. I had a cough,
night sweats, bleeding of the lungs,
pains in chest and sides, and was so
prostrated as to be confined to my
bed most of the time. After toying
various prescriptions, without benefit,
my physician finally determined to givo
me Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. I took it,
and the effect was magical. I seemed
to rally from the first dose of this
medicine, and, after using only three
bottles, am as well and sound as ever."

THE CHINOOK MIRACLE.
Marvellous Tales of the Effects of the
Spice-Laden "Wind from the Pacific-
As soon as you get into the Dakolas
you hearofthechinooks." From that
as you go westward, the stone grow
bigger. The Chinook is a warm wind
which comes from the Pacific, crosses
the Cascade and the Eocky mountain
ranges, and makes its genial influence
felt as far as the eastern border of
the Dakotas. The farmers on the
prairies do not know whence the Chi
nook coraeth or whither it goeth,
but they do know that it is a blessed
When the mercury is a way down
in the thirties below zero, so near the
bulb that there is danger of its going
out of sight, the eyes of the people of
three of the four new states turn
hopefnlly to the west. By and by
there appeals just above the western
horizon a gray clood, like floating
mist, no lnrger than a man's hand,
perhaps. That is the sure forerunner
of the chinook. The cold may be in
tense; water courses may be frozen
to the bottom; cattle may be perish
ing from hunger; the ground may
be covered many inches deep with
snow; existence may seem a burden to
all things animate. Then the clond
appears. Twelve hours later what a
transformation! There is the breath
of Bpring in the air. The snow is go
ing off. The cattle are browsing on
the bunchgrass. The coulees are full
of running water.- Doors are ajar,
windows are open, and everybody is
out in the open air. The chinook has
wrought the change.
When yon ask the Dakotan about
the blizzards he admits that they are
severe, but as an offset he glories the
chinook. Iu Montana the big stock
man still holds to the theory that he
can earn his herds through the wiu
ter without feeding if only the chi
nooks are frequent enough, lint in
Washington on the big praiiies be
tween the Cascades and the Rockies,
the most marvellous tales of all are
Iu the closing hours of the consti
tutional convention of Washington, a
delegate offered a resolution to the
effect that there be incorporated in
the instrument a declaration that na
tives of this new state be known hero
after as "chinookers." The appro
priateness of the name, he argued,
was found iu tho fact that chinook
me.'.nt warm breath. He believed it
was much better than the present
custom of calling Washington people
west of the Cascades "clam eaters,"
and those east ,,bunchgrassers."
S. G. Cosgrove, of Pomoroy, is the
department commander of the Grand
army of the Republic for "Washing
ton. He enjoys the distinction of be
ing the only private elevated to that
position. He came west from Ohio,
where he was a prominent educator.
Telling of what he had known the
chinook to accomplish, Mr. Cosgrove
said this: R
'I have seen eight feet of snow
that is eight feet measured as it fell
from time to time go off the ground
in twelve hours. That was the hard
est winter I have known in Washing
ton. Usually the chinooks are so
frequent that the snow has no oppor
tunity to accumulate. But that
winter it lay nineteen days before
melting. The farmers have not pre
pared for it and the cattle had a
hard time Betting through. There
was an interesting exhibition of the
instinct of the poor brutes. At the
first sign of the ohinook the old cows,
which had been about to drop with
hunger, could be seen staggering
toward the tops of the hills. They
seemed to know that there the snow
would melt fastest and the grass be
uncovered soonest In eastern Wash
ington you can see teams working Jn
the fields every month in the winter.
We have days which are cold and
when the ground freezes to some
depth, but one day's chinooking will
take all the frost out of the ground.
You may not believe it, but I have
seen six inches of frost go out of tho
ground in one hour. That is a pretty
big story to tell farmers back in the
Mississippi valley, but it is true."
