Courage of the Losing Fighter.

"l know ii woman who writes,” said
Lillian Bell. "She writes iraily,
Blithely, hopefully. Thousands regard
her as the apotheosis of easy success,
and envy her position and the happi
ness which must accompany her su
premacy. Yet 1 happen to know that
the one she loves best on earth is dying
a lingering death of an illness which
neither money nor human skill may
even suhdue the pain thereof.
“She is both nurse and breadwinner,
ami doing the work of two is robbing
her of health and strength, yet not one
complaint ever passes her lips. With
her back against, the wall she fights her
losing light, which, though won each
day, yet loses to her all that she loves
best. Such courage as is in her little
slender frame anti blazes from her
dauntless eyes ' Yet her success even
though she daily wins her losing fight

lifts him in her arms at night she feels
that his little frame is daily growing
lighter and his feeble clutch on life is
nightly growing looser. She talks to

Where Character Won.
Walker County Me.iBRnger.
In the life of Judge Price Edwards,
who presided at LaFayette last week
during the first week’s session of
Walker Superior Court, there is a
chapter which should be so full of in
boys of the county
who may be struggling for an educa-
| tion, that we cannot keep from giving
it, even at the risk of offending our
friend, the Judge.
Judge Edwards was a poor boy, but
was determined to have an education
and entered the old Bowdon College.
At the completion of his sophomore
year his funds were exhausted and it
looked as if it would be necessary for
him to give up his ambition of complet
ing his college course.
Flut he had been an industrious stu
dent, and his sturdy character had not
only impressed the members of the fac
ulty, but the citizens of the town as
well. A citizen of Bowdon boarded him
the last two years, relying on the
promise of the boy that he would pay
him when he got out of school; his
school expenses, we are told by a friend
who knew the Judge in boyhood days,
were arranged the same way. Two
years after he graduated from Bowdon
Judge Edwards had paid his debt to his
benefactor and to the college, and to
day is the presiding Judge of the Tal
lapoosa circuit, with a future promis
ing still greater service to the people
and still greater honor to his alma ma
And what Price Edwards did in Har
alson, boys in Walker can do, too, if
they add to good character, industry
We are told that we dig our graves
with our teeth, and many a poor man
finds that the butcher and the grocer
get the biggest part of the family in
come. Where one person is sorry be
cause of having voluntarily eaten too
little, there are thousands who every
day suffer for having eaten too much,
merely to satisfy the cravings of a de
ranged Stomach that was only asking
for rest. Plain, wholesome foods may
not “tickle the palate” as do the fan
cy, high-priced dishes, but the plain
foods make better blood, brain and
muscle, and leave a margin for the
cultivation of the mental and spiritual.
If too little has been taken at one meal,
it is easier to satisfy the appetite than,
having eaten too much, to do away
with the sluggish feeling which always
follows over-indulgence. The meal
should cease before the appetite is en
tirely satisfied, because a little time
should elapse before the outlying or
gans and tissues can feel the effects of
the food already taken.
Senator McLaurin, of Mississippi,
tells a story to illustrate his conception
of the difference between the treat
ment of the colored brother up North
and down South. A Mississippi darky
went up to Kansas and shortly got
stranded. He begged for food and shel
ter from door to door and got neither.
Finally he wandered back to Mississip
pi and knocked.
“What are you doing at my front
door, you black rascal?”
”1 wants som’p’n to eat. missus.”
“Well, go around to the back door
and get it then, you rascal,” said the
Then the old negro, remembering
the polite way in which his requests
had been refused in Kansas, threw up
his hands and exclaimed :
“Bless Gawd, l’s amongst my own
people at last. ”
Young Cassidy, who tries hard to
forget that his father was once a hod
carrier, was blowing about his father’s
fine old' family. McGinnis, who knew
the old man when he lived in a mud
hut in the old country and wore a red
shirt to church, was standing by with a
look of disgust on his face.
“Now, when I visited my father’s
ancestral castle in Ireland,” he con
‘*Br - r - roomp, ” snorted McGinnis.
“Yer father's ancistr - r - ral castle!

ter-er-rul castle, an’ stick yer arm

Dorando Pietri, defending at an Ital
ian banquet'his canny course in wear
ing a cigarette advertisement in the
race with Hayes, told an apposite story
of an Italian grave-digger.
”1 must accumulate all I can while 1
am here.” he said, “for over there in
Italy money is scarce. It is with me,
in fact, as it was with the grave-dig
“This grave-digger, after digging a
certain grave, put in a bill that was
exorbitant. When complaint of the
overcharge was made to him, he said :

Men Do Not “Nag.”
Octave Thanet in Harper’s Bazar.
Men as husbands are not so faithful
as women; they are not so tender ; they
do not forgive, as women do, conduct
which disgraces them publicly; they
are not so patient with physical pain.
But they have one shining virtue; they
do not nag!
It is not like a man to thrash out an
old injury after every grain of circum
stance has been extracted and the Hail
raises nothing but dust. Nor is it like
a man to fumble into the traps of his
own logic and rescue himself by a
burst of temper or a flood of tears.
Men fly into passion over trifles just
about as much as women, and often
more violently. Their language, for in
stance, in regard to overdone beefsteak
frequently is not fit for a lady’s ears.
And it seems irrational to be upset, as
men are, by the misbehaving of collar
buttons. Still, it may be admitted that,
while they fly into a passion, they do
not fly into the same passion again and
again. And when they forgive, they
forgive ; they do not simply take the
offense away and put it in cold storage.
If you are a kicker and see the shad
ow of failure in everything that is
proposed to nelp the town, for heaven’s
sake go into some secluded canyon and
kick your own shadow on the clay-
bank, and thus give men who are work
ing to build up the town a chance. One
long-faced, hollow-eyed, whining kick
er can do more to keep away business
and capital from a town than all
drouths, short crops, chinch bugs, cy
clones and blizzards combined.
If there’s one thing a boy enjoys see

Chicago, 111. — “ I want to tell you
what Lydia E. Pinkharn's Vegetable
Compound did for me. I was so sick

operation. I had

small tumor, and
never thought of

again. A friend
told me how Lydia

For thirty years it lias been the stan

positively restored the health of thou-

any of the following ailments;
Rheumatism and Eczema first,
then Lumbago, Goitre or Neural
gia. For burn or sprain it has no
equal; it will take soreness out and
reduce swelling over night. Pre
scribed by Dr. DeCoursey, best-
known man in all Ireland.
No old sore exists merely because the flesh is diseased at that partic
ular spot; if this were true simple cleanliness and local applications would
heal them. Whenever a sore or nicer refuses to heal readily, the blood is at
fauit; this vital fluid is filled with impurities and poisons which are being
constantly discharged into the place, feeding it with noxious matter and
irritating and inflaming the nerves and tissues so the sore cannot heal.
These impurities in the blood may be the remains of some constitutional
trouble, the effect of a debilitating spell of sickness, leaving disease germs
in the system, or the absorption by the blood oi the fermented refuse matter
which the bodily channels of waste have failed to remove. Again the cause
may be hereditary, the diseased blood of ancestry being handed down to
posterity ; but whatever the cause, the fact that the sore will not heal shows
the necessity for the very best constitutional treatment. There is nothing
that causes more worry and anxiety than an old sore which resists treatment.
Every symptom suggests pollution
and disease—the discharge, the red,
angry looking flesh, the pain and in
flammation, and the discoloration of
surrounding parts, all show that deep
down in the blood there are morbid
and dangerous forces at work, con
stantly creating poisons which may
in the end lead to Cancer. Local
applications are valuable only for
their cleansing and antiseptic effects;
they do not reach the blood, where
the real cause is located, and can
therefore have no real curative worth.
S. S. S. heals old sores by going down
to the fountain-head of the trouble
and driving out the poison-producing
germs and morbid matters which are
keeping the ulcer open. It removes every particle of impurity from the cir
culation and makes this life-stream pure, fresh and health-sustaining. Then
as new, rich blood is carried to the place the healing begins, all discharge
ceases, the inflammation leaves, new tissue and healthy flesh are formed,
and soon the sore or ulcer is well. S. S. S. is the greatest of all blood puri
fiers and finest of tonics, just what is needed in the treatment, and in addi
tion to curing the sore will build up and strengthen every part of the system.

I want to recommend S. S. S. to any who are
in need of a blood purifier, and especially as a
remedy for sores and obstinate ulcers. In 1877
I had my leg badly cut on the sharp edge of a
barrel, and having on a blue woolen stocking
the place was badly poisoned from the dye. A
great sore formed and for years no one knows
what I suffered with the place. I tried, it
seemed to me, everything I hud ever heard cf,
but I got no relief and I thought I would have
to go through life with an angry, discharging
sore on ray leg. At last I began the use of
S. S. S., and it was but a short time until I saw
that the place was improving. I continued it
until it removed all the poison from my blood
and made a complete and permanent cure of
the sore. JNO. ELLIS.
