What it Mean
To the man or woman who baa never
been ill, the word ,•health” is meaningless.
But to the one who has suff- red and de
spaired, health appears as a priceless boon.
To the thousands of unfortunate women
who are suffering from some of the many
forms of weaknesses or irregularities pe
culiar to their sex, Dr. Pierce’s Favorite
Prescription bolds forth the promise ot a
speedy restoration of this “priceless boon.
“ Professor Gauthier, of Paris, states that
certain vital processes of the body develop
putrefying substances in the tissues, which
if not speedily eliminated, produce disease.
Ayer’s Sarsaparilla effects the removal ol
these substances, and thereby preserves
STORMED THE SALOON.
Lima, Oct. 10—Several weeks ago
the neighboring town of Lafayette
passed a prohibition ordinance and
all of the saloons were closed.
A few days ago a saloon-keeper
of this city went to Lafayette and
opened a place. He was waited
upon by a committee who informed
him that his business was not wanted
He continued and the town officials
got an injunction to stop him. The
judge decided in his favor and he
resumed business with more open
ness than ever.
Early yesterday morning his
saloon was bombarded by a crowd
of several hundred persons. They
came supplied with stones and
sledge hammers and, surrounding
the place, commenced to storm it.
The windows and doors were broken
and the crowd rushed in. The bar
was battered down, mirror broken,
heads of barrels knocked in and
contents wasted. The place was
almost tom down and everything

More pointed still we make ourselves

Among the most dangerous, aa well as
vexing of ills “inwoven with our frame,”
are Consumption, Asthma, Bronchitis,
colds and lung troubles generally. How
ever, the timely use of Dr. Pierce’s Golden
Medical Discovery takes away their fear
ful consequences, but which neglected,
leaves “regret, remorse and shame.” But
you need not be ashamed to ask for lhe
“Discovery,” as it has become a standard
r< medy, found at al! the drugstores, where
thousands call for it every day, and where
it is recogn zed as the leading medicine for
all lung and throat affections.

THE KILLING OF GAY.
Ty Ty, Oct. 10. —A fatal difficulty
took place at Moultrie in Colquitt
county Monday evening, in which
James Gay lost his life at the hands
of James Eady. The particulars
are about as follows as related to
your correspondent by an eye-wit
Eady was about mounting his
horse with the purpose of going
home when Gay approached him,
charging him with circulating some
remarks that were going the rounds
in the neighborhood. Hot words
passed between them and Gay
struck Eady. Eady then plunged
his knife into Gay’s left breast just
above the nipple severing, as the
attending physician said, the main
artery leading from the heart to the
brain and producing death almost

TERRIBLEJ DYNAMITE GUNS.
Philadelphia, Oct. 9—The
official test of the dynamite guns of
the cruiser Vesuvius took place to
day, and was entirely satisfactory
In distance firing projectiles were
thrown from 100 to 150 yards
beyond the required mile.
In the test for rapidity of firing
the contract required that the load
ing and working machinery, pumps
and reservoir, should enable fifteen
shots to be taken in thirty minutes
five shots from each gun. In the
test fifteen iron plugs weighing
about 525 pounds each were fired,
and from the moment the loading of
the first gun was commenced until
the last shot had been fired 17 min
utes and a fraction elapsed.
The air compressors were not
working during the time although
it would hav« been allowable, and
yet at the end of the firing the
reservoir contained enough air
to fire eight more shots at the mile
Each of the fifteen shots was
fired with a volume of air which
had sufficed to carry service shells
Makes the lives of many people miserable,
and often leads to seif-destruction. We
know oi no remedy for dyspepsia more
successful than Hood’s Sarsaparilla, li
acs gently, yet surely and efficiently,tones

taint, feeling, creates a good appetite, cures
headache, and refreshes the burdened

It will do you good.
Momtgomery, Ala., October 10.—

fought one successful duel. In the
duel fought at Hayneville, Haynes
was shot and wounded in the shouls

Deafness Cau’l be Cured
by local application, as they can not reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
■ only one way to cure Deafness, and that
is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
' caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucus lining of the Eustachian Tube.
When this tube gets inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed Deafness is the
result, and unless the inflaination can be
taken out and this tube restored to its nor
mal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucus surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by Catarrh)
that we can not by taking Haii’s Catarrh
Cure. Send for ciiculars, free.

When you need a good, safe laxative,
ask your druggist for a box of Ayer’s Pilis,
and you will find that they give perfect
satisfaction. For indigesticu, topid liver,
and sick headache there is nothing supe
rior. Leading physicians recommend
Congress will be asked at the next
session to pass a bill to increase the
pay of corporals and orderly ser
geants in the army, They now re
ceive at first from sls to $34 a
month. Their yay is increased as
their term of service grows longer
and at the end of ten years they re
ceive $36 and $39 a month.
The proposed bill will provide that
they shall receive S3O, S4O and SSO
a month respectively. The main
reason given for this increase is that
it would serve to decrease the num
ber of desertions and inspire enlisted
men with a better spirit. Our sol
diers are already better paid than
those of any other nation. Ger
many boasts of the finest army in
the world and a sergeant in this
countiy receives as much pay as a
first lieutenant in the German army.
