ler Husband’s Story
“ My name is E. J. Sprong. and my address is 16 Bondman Block, Troy. N.
I want to tell how thankful I am that my wife’s health has been restored to
About a year ago she caught a dreadful cold, which settled in her bron»
cliial tubes and lungs. She cer­
tainly had bronchitis, and I think
consumption, too, and we de­
spaired of her life. She had a
tightness and soreness in the
chest, and it was difficult for her
to breathe. There were darting,
sharp, dull and heavy pains, with
constant coughing and expectorat­
ing. Each day she was worse
than the day before. I was ad­
vised to ge{ Acker s English Rem­
edy, and did so, but my’ wife only
shookherheadand said: ’Another
dollar thrown away.’ She took
the Remedy, however, and said
the effect was magical. In less
than an hour there was a remark­
able change. She got better at
once, and in a short time she was
entirely well and strong again. The cure was permanent and there has been
no relapse. I don’t know what Acker’s English Remedy is made of, but I am
sure it contains something that fortifies the system against future attacks. My
wife is in better general health now than ever, and you can’t imagine how
happy she is for her recovery. She tells everybody about Acker’s English Rem­
edy, and so do I, for I believe it to be our duty to the public to help every suf­
ferer who has throat and lung troubles. My neighbors say it is a sure specific
for croup, and has saved the lives of hundreds of little ones around in this
vicinity alone.”

he created as an intelligent young China­
man. He was married Thursday even­
ing of last week, to Mary Grau, at the
Baptist mission church. The room was
elaborately decorated with choice flowers
of many varieties, cedar branches and
flr boughs. Long before 9 o'clock the
room was filled with Chinese and Ameri­
can friends. Promptly at the hour, the
bridal party entered. Tho btide and
groom, preceded by two little flower
girls, beautifully attired, in their quaint
costumes, marched up the aisle. They
were met by Rev. Alexander Blackburn,
D. D., of the First Baptist church, who
performed the ceremony. The service
closed with a short address in Chinese
by the pastor of the mission, after which
light refreshments were served. The
bride, a daughter of the Chinese mission­
ary at Victoria, was gowned in white
silk, her veil being held in place with
orange blossoms. She is said to be an
exceedingly attractive young woman.
The l.nal Lecture.
Dr. Alexander Blackburn, of the First
Baptist church of Portland, will deliver
his celebrated lecture on “Gumption”
in the McMinnville Baptist church Fri­
day night, February 2d, at 8 p. m. Do
not look for full-sheet posters. Colored

this lecture. We don’t claim that Dr.
Blackburn is the best lecturer in the
United States, but he will do you more
good if yon hear him than ten entertain­

not only be fun but also profit; not only
enjoyment but also a stronger impetus
to overcome in the battle of life. The
