AN EDITOR'S LIFE
Oue of the beauties and charms
editor's life is in his deadheading
all occasions. No one who has
feasted on the sweets of that bliss cm
begin to take in the glory of its hap
piness, lie does $100 worth of adver
tising for a railroad, get s a "pass" for a
year, rides $25 woith, and then he is
looked upon as a deadhead or a half
blown deadbeat. He ''puffs" a concert
troupe $10 worth and iets$l in compli
mcntarics, and is thus passed "free." It
the hall is crowded he is begrudged the
room he occupies, fr if his coinplimeu
taries were paying tickets the troupe
would be so much in pocket. He blows
and puffs a church festival free to any
desired extent and does the poster print
ing at half rates, and rarely gets a thank
J m for it. It goes as part of his duty
as an editor. He does more work gra
tuitously for the town and community
than all the rest f the population put
together, and gets cursed for it nil, while
in many instances where a man who
donates a few dollars to a fourth of
Julyjcelebration, base ball club, or church,
is gratefully remembered. Oh, it is a
sweet thing to be an editor! He pusses
"free" you know.
GROVER'S PLEASANT RIDE.
Yesterday Grover Cleveland drove out
from-Washington to Red Top. So the
press dispatches told the country. Well,
the account might h:ive been more com
plete with exhausting all the truth in the
case or interest in the subject He drove
over a road highly improved with pub
lic moneys and solely to benefit a great
crowd of real estate syndicates.
Those who thus used the public funds
were his own district officials selected by
him .ind representing him. What they
did was to extend a costly avenue and
other roads for seyeral miles oyer a rough
and almost uninhabited country from the
city to his own lied Top. He had pre
viously bought this and improved it at
a cost of about $3t,000. The improve
ments made by his officials at public ex
peuse, and uncalled for by any public in
terest, ran the value of his investmentjup
more than $100,000 in three years, and
this is the sum which he cleared in cold
cash as a result of the diyersion of public
funds by his own officials, and with his
sanction to promote real estate specula
tion. The drive must have been an ex
ceedingly interesting one to the ex-president.

AScrap of Paper saves Her Life.
It was just an ordinary scrap
of wrapping paper, but it saved
her life. She was in the last stage
of cousuption, told by physi
cans that she was incurable and could
live only a short time: she weighed less
than seventy pounds. On a peice of
wrapping paper she read of Dr. King's
New Discovery, and got a Eummple bot
tle; it helped her she bought a large bot
lte, it helped her more, bought another
and grew better fast, continued its use
and is now strong, healthy, rosy,
plump, weighing 140 pounds. For ful
ler particulars send stamp to W. H. Cole,
Druggist, Fort Smith. Triarl bottles of
this wonderful Discovery free at F. G.
Fricke & Co drugstore. 4
The New Discovery-
You have hard your friends and neigh
bors talking about it. You may yourself
be one of the many who kuuw from per
sonal experience just how good a thing
it is. If you have ever tried it, you are
one of its staunch friends, because the
wonderful thing about it is, that when
once given a trial, Dr King's New Dis
covery ever after holds a place in the
house. If you have never used it and
should bo aMictcd with a cough, cold or
any Throat, Lung or Chest trouble, se
cure a bottle at ouce and give it a fair
trial. It is guaranteed every time, or
money refunded. Trial Bottles Free at
F. G. Fricke and CVs, Drugstore. 6
Tho Verdict Unanimous.
W. D. Suit, Druggist, Liippus, Ind.,
testifies: " I can recommend Electric
Bitters as the very last remedy. Every
bottle sold has given relief in every case.
One man took six bottles, and was cured
of Rheumatism of 10 years standing."
Abraham Hare, druggist, Bellville, Ohio,
affirms: "The best selling medicine 1
have ever handled in my 20 years, ex
perience, is Electric Bitters." Thousand
of others have added their testimony, so
that the verdict is unanimous that Elec
tric Bitters do cure all diseases of the
Liver, Kidncvs r Blood. Only a half
dollar a bottle at F. G. Fricke & Co.'s. 2
