Cough medicines, Ayer's Cherry Pec toral is in greater demand than ever No preparation for Throat and Lung Troubles is so piompt in its effects, sc agreeable to the taste, and so widelj 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 of my old complaint." Ernest A. Hepler, Inspector of Public RoadsParish Ter re lionne, La. " I consider Ayer's Cherry Pectoral a most important remedy For Home Use. I have tested its 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 the throat and lungs, whether in children or adults." Mrs. E. G. Edgerly, Council Bluffs, Iowa. "Twenty years ago I was troubled with a disease of tlio lungs. Doctors afforded me no lelief and considered my case hopeless. I then began to uso Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and, before I had finished one bottle, found relief. I continued to take this medicine until a cure was effected. I believe that Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life." Samuel Griggs, "Waukegan, 111. " Six years ago I contracted a severe cold, which settled on my lungs and soon developed all the alarming symp toms of Consumption. I had a cough, uight sweats, bleeding of the lungs, pains in chest and sides, and was so prostrated as to be conGned to my bed most of the time. After trying various prescriptions, without benefit, uiy physician finally determined to give mo 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." Rodney Johnson, Springfield, 111.

Being recently inter viewed bv a reporter, here ia the re sult. - "Do you favor Samuel J. Randall's protective Democracy or Grover Cleveland's school of out and out free trade?" "I'm a Demdcrat, I am. Whatever the party says, goes. See?" "But, 3Jr. Sullivan, what are your personal views on the tariff?" "Oh, the tariff's all right. I've nothing to say against it, at any rate for the present." "Do you think raw material ought to be admitted free of duty?" "No, sirree. But I'd put ropes, stakes, boxing gloves aud sponges on the free list." "Have you any opinion to offer on the Mill's bill?" "Mills ought to get a show. Fellers as want a mill'll Cght in spite of the law on the subject." "Do yon believe in the principles of the immortal Jackson?" "No sir. I don't" believe Jackson has no principals nor backers, I pass on Jackson. He is a nigger." "How are you on prohibition?" "I'm agin prohibition, but I'm for temperance. You can state that in your paper that I believe in temper ance." "How do vou ptaud on the consti tution?" "That New Orleans business settled that. No man that fit 73 rounds has flies on his constitution. Me consti tution is all right. Lets go and have something." People of sedentary habits, who are subject to constipation, can regulate their bowels by tho use of Ayer's Pills. While the Chinaman is an iuoffeu sive aud unpretentious creature, there are but few white people who can excel him in shrewdness and trickery. There was an instance in San Francisco the other day which, though while horrible in itself, proveB tho assertion above made. Au old Chinese hag arrived on the Uaelic, having twenty-three female slaves which she expeoted to sell. She was refused a lauding. Some smart Chi nese in the city then swore out a writ of habeas corpus for the young slaves and got them lauded, leaving the old hag on the vessel, which is now on its way back to China with the slave importer on board, minus her slaves or money. To cure any scrofulous disease or humor, try Ayer's. Sarsaparilla. It cleanses the blood. Ireland in 1879 had 5,2G5,G25 in habitants, and the population just made for up 18S9 is but 4,777,534. A decrease like this is true of no other civilized country in the world "and is itsown condemnation of the methods of England's government of Ireland. HAPPINESS AXl) tOXTEXT.1IE.NT Cannot go hand in hand if we look on the dark side of every little obstacle. Nothing will so darken life and make it a burden as Dyspepsia. Acker's Dys pepsia Tablets will cure the worst form of Dyspepsia, Constipation and Indiges tion, and make life a happiness and pleasure. Sold at 25 and f0 cents by J. V. Conn, Druggist. Horace Greely gave wonderful good advice when he said a man should never change his business after bo was thirty-five years old, un less he was a horse-thief. If the food is not properly digested it becomes corrupt; and poisons the sys tem it was intended to nourish. This is indigestion. "My wife has suffered for many years with indigestion. After trying every thing else recommended, she tried Sim mons Liver Regulator. In three days after taking It according to directions she was in perfect health; she docs not suffer at all and can eat auything she wants without any of her previous symptoms." V. C. Subeks, Bainbridge, Ga. The Sunday closing movement is gaining ground rapidly. Even churches are observing the custom. FISH NETTING. SEINES, TRAPS, POUNDS, Netting of Ever?

A PHYSICIAN'S OPINION. "I have been practicing medicine for twenty years and nave never been able to put up a vegetable compound that would, like Simmons Liver Regulator, promptly and effectively move the Liver to action, and at the same time aid (instead of weak ening) the digestive and assimilative powers of the system."

Lovely tints in the wrong ploco are reft of their charm. A lemon colored countenanco tho peculiar endowment of our pig-tailed brethren who "hit the pipo" is unbecoming. It suggests bUo going astray, and tho infer ence is corroct. Pain beneath tho ribs and shoulder blades, constipation, dyspopsia, furred tongue, nnd sjok hoadapb,es supple ment this indication ottho bilious. For liver complaint and its multifarious symptoms, Hostotter's Stomach Bitters U an infallible specific. It relaxes the boweh sufficiently but without griping or violence. To tho se cretion of bile it gives n due impulse, but ban ishes an excess of that saffron colored prin ciple from the blood. Sick headaches, sour ness of tho breath, and fur upon the tongue disappear when it i3 used. It renews diges tion, fortifies the system against malaria, counteracts a rhoumatic tendency, nnd rem edies inaction of tho kidneys. Marriage, so far from being a fail ure in Chicago, says the the Minne apolis Tribune, is only a temporary embarrassment.

" pantry shelves, Bump my he'ad and moat loudly would shout it, Uncle Dan used to say, "You won't feel it a bit If you only, quit thinking about it." The philosophy's Reed even down to this day, And only the foolish would scout it; If you trip and fall over yourself it won't hurt If you'd only quit thinking about it. If you've sworn that yon will die for the girl that you love, And believe that you surely can't doubt it, And zip! the match breaks! your heart never will If .you only quit thinking about it. If j-our fortunes should fade iu the shad ows of life, And your prospects are all put to route, it Will be light on your mind as it He3 on your purse If yon only quit thinking about it. If by lightning you're struok, though you feel in your mind You might live very well on without it, Yoa will find it will not discommode you at all If you only quit thinking about it, The Source of Wrinkles. The general impression about wrinkles is that they are caused by worry, but the truth is that most of them come from laughing. To know how to laugh is just as important as to kuow when to do it. If you laugh with the sides of your face the skin will work loose in time, and wrinkles will form in exact accordance with the kind of laugh yon have. The man who" always wears a smirk will have n series of semi-circular wrin kles covering hiB cheeks. A gambler, who is aoustomed to suppress his feelings generally has a deep line run ning from each side of his nose to the upper cornor of his mouth, which in course of time extends- to the chin, forming tho shape of a half-moon. A cadaverous person ia usually marked with two wrinkles, oue on the jaw and the other under the eye, meeting at right angles at the oheek bones. The Boholar's wrinkles form ou his brow, while-a schomer's wrin kles come around his eyes, aud looks like spokes of a wheel. The emperor of Austria reads four teen newspapers a day, each of which is printed in a different dialect. They are the leading papers of the chief towns of the Anstro-Hungarian empire. A DUTY TO YOUUSELK. It is surprising that people will use a common, ordinary pill when they can secure a valuable English one for the same money. Dr. Acker's English pills are axuir ire cure for sick-headache and all liver troubles. They are small, sweet, easly taken and do not gripe. .1. W. Conn, Druggist.
