The grand high cockalorums of politi
cal fusion have been especially busy the
past week, holding “conferences” among
themselves and arranging a slate for the
June election. As the deliberations were
conducted in secret, it is not likely that

authorized account, but will have to rest
content until the caucus mine is
sprung. We understood it was decided
that Guild, Emery and Gill of legislature

It has been held that consumption is
hereditary, and the fact that one person
in a family had died with consumption
was considered a good sign that others of
that family could not escape it. This is
partly true and partly untrue. A man
with weak lungs is likely to transmit that
weakness to his children. But there is
no reason in the world why the weak
ness should be allowed to develop. Keep
the lungs full of rich, red, wholesome
blood, and the weakness will disappear.
Decaying tissues will be thrown oil', and
new material will be added until the
lungs are well and perfectly strong
again. This is the thing that Dr. Pierce’s
Golden Medical Discovery does. Thia is
