Good Campaign Work,
Too much credit cannot be giv
en to Hon. W. J. Neel, chairman
of the Seventh District Democratic
i Executive committee for the faith-
I ful and untiring work done by him
, in the campaign just closed .
i It must be confessed that the
I tight was an uphill one all the way,
j caused mainly by the apathy and
I indifference among the Democrats
: of the district, and but for the good
management and tireless zeal of
’ Mr. Neel and the splendid cam-
Ipaign made by Judge Maddox, the
result would not have been nearly
Iso flattering to the Democratic
party. But all is well that ends
well and credit should be given to
those -who sided so materially in
bringing about that result.

Charles R. Crisp is being boomed
ias a candidate for congress from
the Tjiird district to nil the unex
pired term of his father, the late
Judge Crisp. Young Mr. Crisp is
highly spoken of as a worthy son
j of a noble sire, and his election to
fill the vacancy caused by hisfath

ful thing to do.

Quite a number of those who an
nounced in the News as candidates

we won t have to omit any names from

It seems that the project to
build a college at Menlo is at a
standstill. Why is this? Can
such an offer be found elsewhere,
where an institution of such mag
nitude can be established with so
small an outlay of capital? What
could money be invested in that
would be more beneficial to the
rising generation than the building
of a good college. We are confi
dent that if the people would only
give a second thought to the op
portunity they are letting slip
through their fingers they would

prise and never stop until the spires

President Isaac Lewis of Sabina. Ohio,
is highly respected all through that
section. He has lived in Clinton Co.
75 years, and has been president of
the Sabina Bank 20 years. He gladly
testifies to the merit of Hood’s Sarsa
parilla. and what he says is worthy
attention. All brain workers find
Hood’s Sarsaparilla peculiarly adapted
to their needs. It makes pure, rich,
red blood, and from this comes nerve,
mental, bodily and digestive strength,
“lam glad to eay that Hood’s Sarsapa
rilla is a very good medicine, especially I
as a blood purifier. It has done me good
many times. For several years I suffered j
greatly- with pains of
in one eye and about my temples, es
pecially at night when I had been having
a hard day of physical and mental labor.
I took many remedies, but found help only
in Hood’s Sarsaparilla which cured me of
rheumatism, neuralgia -and headache.
Hood’s Sarsaparilla has proved itself a true
friend. I also take Hood’s Pills to keep
my bowels regular, and like the pills
very much.” Isaac Lewis, Sabina, Ohio.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at
least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure in
all its stages, and that is catarrh.
Hall’s Catarrh Cure is the only
positive cure known to the medi
! cal fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall’s
Catarrh Cure is taken internally,
acting directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation
of the disease, and giving the pa
tient strength by building up the
' constitution and assisting nature
!in doing its work. The proprietors
I have so much faith in its curative
powers that they offer One Hun
! dred Dollars Reward for any case
that it fails to cure. Send for list
iof testimonials. Address,
