Many people are just fool enough
to think that it is the duty of the
Ordinary, in attending to the bus
iness of the county, to look first,
last, and all the time, to the just
interest of the county.
They think he should do this

“I Am So Tired"
Is a common exclamation at this sea

Nature is renewing her youth, her ad
mirers feel dull, sluggish and tired.
This condition is owing mainly to the
impure condition of the blood, and
its failuie to supply healthy tissue to
the various organs of the body. It
is remarkable how susceptible the
system is to the help to be derived
from a good medicine at this season.
Possessing just those pur fying,build
ing-up qualities which the body
craves, Hood's Sarsaparilla soon ov
ercomes that tired feeling, restores

in short, imparts vigorous health. Its
