We fail to see the wisdom of
the legislature in appropriating
more money than the state is
able to pay. Why not let the
state pay up what it owes before
running still further in debt?

“I want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re
ceived from the use of Thedford’s Black-Draught,” writes
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
“It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
f liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl’s life. When she had the measles,
■ they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford’s
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. I shall never be without
in my home.” For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi-
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar S
ailments, Thedford’s Black-Draught has proved itself a safe,
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.
# If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black- #
Draught It is a medicine of known merit Seventy-five ®
years of splendid success proves its value. Good for v
young and old. For sale everywhere. Price 25 cents.

All of which is very true. The
only way to deal with the delin
