Cough medicines, Ajer's Cherry Pec
toral id in greater demand than ever
No preparation for Throat and Lung
Troubles is so piompt in its effects, i.c
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 ery annoying
tickling sensation in the throat and by
difficulty in breathing. I hmc tried-a
great many remedies, but none does sc
well as Ayer's L'herry 1'ectoral which
always gives prompt relief in returns of
my old complaint." Ernest A. Ilepler,
Inspector of Public Iloads, Parish Tcr
rc lioime, La.
" I consider Ayer's Cherry Pectoral a
most important remedy
For Home UseB
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 the throat and lungs,
whether in children or adults." Mrs.
E. G. Edgeily, Council Blufls, 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 uso
Ajer'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 A j er'd
Cherry Pectoral .saved my life."
Samuel Griggs, "Waukegan, 111.
"Six years ago I contracted asevero
told, which settled on 1113' lungs and
soon developed all the 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 trying
various prescriptions, without benefit,
my physician finally determined to givo
me Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. I took it,
md the effect was magical. I seemed
io rally from the first dose of this
medicine, and, after using only thrco
bottles, am as well and ound as ever."

A Man "Who" II as Rapidly Changed His
Gladstone, the leader oE English
liberalism, has been SO years a human
being aud 0 years an olliceholder. In
that time he has been for establish
ment and disestablishment He has
been a protectionist and he has been
a free trader. He has favored govern
ment grants to sectarian enterprises
and he has been an opponent of all
tlio-e grants. He has been for the En
glish slaveholders in Jamaica and he
favored the measures which ended hu
man chattlehood wherever flies the
English Hag. He has opposed the ex
tension of the ballot to the common
ieonle and he has in lunt enlarged the
bounds of tuffragc so as to make them J
well nigh universal. He has con
demned the interference o England
in Oriental affairs and carried on, be
hind a mask of protest against Jingo
ism, the most rapacious campaign of
conquest in Egypt and Afghanistan
that England ever waged. ;
He upheld the rights of the Boers,
to their freedom, and he then over
whelmed them with conquering troops. '
He long maintained the Episcopal I
church in Ireland, and then he over
threw it with hostile legislation. He'
went to almost Cromwellian extent in-
to the coercion of Ireland, there sup
pi cs,-ing free printing, free speech, the
right f petition ant' of popular as
semblies; there throwing the leaders
of the nation into jail for the crime of
desiring human rights and toward
the same country he has favored
home rule, a home parliament and a
measure of political autonomy which,
in all but name, would make mat
country free and independent He
bcgan.iu the language of Macauley,
as "The rising young hope of the
tories,' and he has come to be the
specter of imperialism in that country
which his brother prophesied "he
would ruin, just before he himself
died in a madhouse."'
He is the most considerable figure
in England, where he has belonged to
every parly and attached himself to
all sides of every issue. He is the
most considered of foreign statesmen
in the United States whose destruction
ho plotted, when he sought to secure
the recognition and tho armed estab
lishment of the confederate experi
ment, to the end that England might
maintain relations with a government
of aristocracy in the south confronting
n government of democracy in the
north. If changeability is inconsist
ency, Mr. Gladstone has been the
most inconsistent man that ever lived.
If a repudiation of old principles and
a constant courting of new .ones is to
be called progressive, 3Ir. Gladstone
has been tho mo3t progressive human
being the world has ever seen.
Ho was first elected to parliament
in 1833 from the borough of Newark.
In that body he urged the right of
Jamaica slave owners to compensate
and put himself on record as an im
placable church and university man.
In 1S3J, under Pefcl as premier, he be
came junior lord of tho treasury, but
the cabinet went out of office on the
question of voting subsidies to the
Episcopal church in Ireland, XIr.
Gladstone supiiortiug tho grants. He
remained a minority member until the
return of Peel to power in IS II, when
he became vice-president of the board
of trade and master of the mint It
was then that Gladstone faced the
rising tide for the repeal of the corn
laws with a bill for a sliding scale of
corn duties which the great Cobden
denounced as "an insult to a suffering
In the same session Air. Gladstone
forced to passage a measure of his own
in which out of 1,200 duty-paying nr
ticlas a total abolition or a consider
able, reduction was made in 750. At
this time his unsurpassed inastery of
detail was shown, "his ability to make
statistics eloquent"' In 1813 he abol
ished the restrictions on the exporta
tion of machinery. The next year he
carried the measure to broaden rail
way service for the people. On ihe
top of these popular measur&j ho
voted for the Alnynooth improvement
bill." yet admitted that "exclusive
support to the established church was
being moro and more abandoned every
In 1S1G perhaps the noblest service
of Mr. Gladstone's life was rendered
to the repeal of the corn laws, in which
he stood only less conspicuous than
Peel, Cobden aud Bright AVheu the
great Sir Robert resigned otlicc at the
close of that parliament, it was a sin
gularfact that he went out on the
ministers defeat in tin endeavor to pass
an almost iuhmnan Irish coercion bill.
The homes of Englishmen had been
made brighter by untaxed bread.
The homes of Ireland were to be
darkened by the shadow of despotism.
Mr. Gladstone supported coer
cion as earnestly as ho favored
free food. Small -wonder is that Peel
wished io ascribe his defeat not io
coercion but to the resentment of
From that lime onward Mr. Glad
stone's career coincided with the
present generation, and has been made

Palmerston, he became the undisputed
leader of English liberals. Surviving

lively handled i-s a pari or the history
of llic English shaking race.
There is little that he lias not been.
In his lime ho has played many parts.
He has been a theologian, a iolitician,
a statesman, an agitator ami a dema
gogue, pamphleicr, an author, a
translator, a critic, an art connoisseur,
a farmer, a woodman and an amateur
scientist He ia further off from Ihe
principle-.? with which he started than
any other niu of this generation. He
lias grown as i-ibly oat of one set of
opinions into another as a babe out of
infancy into youth, as a joulh out of
3outhfulnecs into manhood. With
less leisure than any other statesman,
he has translated nomcr, vitalized
Dante, humanized Goethe. Balancing
an empire or a parly on hi i shoulders,
lie has discussed in the roviews the
most exalted problems of the antique
world or of the prescut time.
Ho is an equal authority on pottery
and dogma. His are the wealcnesscs
which hang on the neck of strength.
Great is his vanity, he is greater in I113
versatility. Colossal in his impatience,
he is superb in his fortitude. Un
equaled in his arrogance, he is trans
cendent in his capacity. Extraordin
ary hi his self consciousness, he is
unrivaled in Ins ability to lose it.
Prone to detail, he can yet generalize
as wisely as Bacon or as subtly as Bol
iugbroke. Incredible in his miscon
ception of the opinion of oilier coun
tries, his knowledge of tho springs of
English action is absolute. He is the
most picturesque and prodigious hu
man miraclo of tho nineteenth cen
tury. He is utterly unconscious of lho ra
pidity with which he has changed his
position, for he is lotaih de-titute f
humor. Hcii di enabled from real

HOW THEY V0RK IT.
Frauds of the K-iMcra FMi Trade.
Dr. Lawrence Hamilton, of London,
has lately been making a systematic
study of tho frauds of the fish trade,
which he reports to be very many. It
seems that stale codfish are made to
look fresh by smearing their gills with
fresh blood." Slabcod and other fish
are often made to look plump and fat
by means of the blow pipe. Small
haddock and rock pouters are fre
quently skinned, their tails inserted
into their mouths and sold for whiting.
Halibut and brill aro often passed oil
as turbot; while such cheap fish tis
plaice are sold for "fille'tietl soles."
Painting the gills of stale fish to make
them look fresh, and coloriug cured
fish tire old and comnion "tricks of
the trade." Stale eels and skate are
made to look as though just ont of
the water by rubbing them with sand.
In France skinned dogfish are sold 33
Dutch eels. It is said that sorats are
often canned as sardines or ancho
vies, and anchovy paste largely
consists of them. Now in America
split herrings are sold as anchovies
and small herrings as sardines. Tho
so-called Russian sardines are, it ap
pear?, only small herrings, flavored
with spices. To save the trouble of
smoking herrings, some dealers use a
special varnish, having a smoky taste.
Even lobsters and crabs are loaded
and made heavier by having a piece of
fre-Ji haddock or other fish inserted.
"Wked they have legun to grow stale
the remedy is to rcboil them, and by
that means the odor of decomposition
is destroyed. As for caviares made
from the roes of sturgeon, they are
often "fixed" with rocs taken from in
ferior Hs-h. Dr. Hamilton fouud
much to condemn nbonj; canned iLdi,
there being a frequent lack of care
and cleanliness, aud often a sub
stitution of a cheaper and coarser fish
for that supposed to bo held by the
cans. There is good reason to lielieve
that frauds in lho fish trade arc much
more common in England than iu
this country. Still, many of the deal
ers here will bear watching. The
harm winch can result from eating
stale fihli is not generally appreciated,
and besides that, tho symptoms of
poisoning -excited in that way are
rarely under stood. There is reason
to believe that they are often misin
terpreted by physicians, and many
CfOSC3 of poisoning are mistaken for
cholera morbus. Certainly the most
rigid laws should govern this and any
other trades in articles of food. Bos
