He Wanted a Dose of Salts.
The Tfibunc of Rome publishes
the following unique letter, written by
a negro who is in jail:
‘ you have spoke off the birds. One
off the birds hav bin sick and the jail
bird that thort that there counlic had
a doctor to tend on the countic birds,
i hav ask the man that feeds the jail
birds to bring hint some saulce
an send the doctor to the jail biid and
he has not sent the doctor to the jail
bird an hav not brought the saulis
So i now ask The Tribune of Rome to
ask my friends and relation to com
outh back of) the jail birds cage and
call for Mack Madison be fore lie dye
and sec him. l'leas notify the cou-
lords Bapts churches off Rome for the
leaders off the churches to com and
sing and pray with me tell the preach
ers off ihes churches to com it may be
thair last time to sing and pray with
thair brothc in this world.
Wants a Wife.
The following communication has
been addressed to the Timcs-Union,
“I read my neighbor’s paper occa
sionally, and, I frequently sec notices
of ladies wanting a home.
No, I atn a widower, with a good
place; besides I draw a pension for
services in the Mexican war of $S per
I atn in the fifty-second year of life;
have no children; live by myself; no
one depend upon me for a living; can
give good references. If you know
amongst your inquirers a woman that
would suit such a man, please inform
me, that I-may correspond with her
The lady must be of irreproachable
character, with no small children,about
40 or 50 years of age, dark hair or
auburn; would not object to one .35
years old. Yours, etc., * * *
P. S.—An old maid would suit best,
but don’t object to a widow.”
A man who will not subscribe for a
paper, and persists in borrowing his
neighbor's, docs not deserve a wife.
We hope he will not even get a "nib
ble,” while fishing for a wife through
the columns of a paper which he bor
rows. If he does get one, may there
be a mother-in-law in the background.
Knew the Symptoms.
Wife: “Cyrus, I am sure young
Spoonamoorc is becotning serious in
his attentions to our Susie.”
"Husband: “Nonsense! What
makes you think so?”
"He wears a new necktie every
time he comes?”
“Do you think Susie cares anything
"1 know she docs. She hasn't
eaten an oqion this spring.”
Long Distance Telephoning.
Tjong distance telephoning is so
important that its progress is watched
with peculiar interest. What has
been accomplished warrants great ex
pectations. Long distance lines arc
itr operation continously from Phila
delphia to Boston and from Philadel
phia to Buffalo, through New York,
with branch service all through New
England. In a few weeks lines from
Philadelphia to Washington will he
completed. Another set of lines is to
connect the coal regions of Pennsyl
vania with both New York and Phil
adelphia. This extension of the tele
phone hits cut seriously into business
heretofore done exclusively by the
telegraph. I11 one sense it is no won
der that the telegraph people should
seek to stop long telephoning by a
resort to law. On the same princi
ple, owners of stage lines might seek
to stop railroads, or any other new
thing try to stop an improvement.
The Largest Advertiser of Ancient
The Garret (Indiana,) “Clipper”
strikes a key-note in the following
article : “For the licnelit of those who
abhor printer's ink as the prime factor
to the advancement of llieir interests
we should state that Sampson—the
strong party—was the first man to
advertise. He took two solid columns
to demonstrate his strength and sever
al thousand ‘tumbled’ to the scheme.
Ho brought down the house.
The example set by Sampson might

This dramatic speech broke him up badly;
but when she explained that her apprehen

family, he calmed her fears, bought a bottlo
of Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery for

Consumption fastens its hold upon its victims
while they are unconscious of its approach.
The “Golden Medical Discovery" has cured
thousands of cases of this most fatal of mala
