Silver has again reached a phenom
enally low price lower, in fact, than
for a very long period. Th5 depression
In Its value, caused by the refusal of
the Lnited States to adopt the free
allver proposition, coupled with the
desertion of the silver standard by Ja
pan, and the prospective action In
that line by Russia and China, have
dealt to the 'white metal a staggering
Wow, which nothing except combined
International action can cure.

WRENCHED AM) RACKED.
By the pangs of rheumatism, the Joints
eventually berime grievously distorted,
and sometimes assume an almost gro
tesque deformity. To prevent such re
sults by a simple and agreeable means
is omainly the part of wisdom. A
tendon y to rheumatic a.lments may be
successfully cornbaited with Hostetter's
Stomach Bittern, a medicine with the
prestige of a long and successful ca
reer, of unbounded popularity, and of
emphatic professional endorsement. It
removes from the blood those Inflam
matory Impurities which pathologists
assign as the cause of rheumatism, and
not only purifies the life current, but
enriches It, promoting vigor by fertil
izing its source. Dlgemlon, the action
of the bowels and tlie secretion of the
bile, are aided by it, and it impels
the kidneys and Llad'ler to a rfeuiar
and active performance of their func
tions. It is besides a thoroughly re
liable remedy for, and means of pre
venting, periodic fevers.
