The Use Of
Harsh, drastic purgatives to relieve costive
ness is a dangerous practice, and more liabla
to fasten the disease on the patient than to
cure it. What is needed is a medicine that.
In effectually opening the liowels, corrects
tiie costive habit and establishes a natural
daily action, Bucli an aperient is found iu
Ayer's Pills,
which, while thorough in action, strengthen
as well as stimulate the bowels and excretory
" For eight years I was afflicted with coiw
stipation, which at hist became so bad that
the doctors could do no more for me. Then
I began to take Ayer's J'ills, ami soon the
bowels became regular and natural in their
movements. I am now in excellent health."
Wm. II. Del-aucett, Dorset, Out.
" When I feel the need of a cathartic, I
take Ayer's Pills, and find them to be more
than any other pill I ever took." Mrs. I?. C,
Gruhb, Burwellville, Va.
" For years I have been subject to consti
pation and nervous headaches, caused by de
rangement of the liver. After taking various
remedies, 1 liave become convinced that
Ayer's Pills are the best. They have never
failed to relieve my bilious attacks in a short
time; ami I am sure my system retains its
tone longer after the use of these Pills, than
has been the case with any other medicine I
have tried." II. S. Sledge, Weimar, Texas.

Ilev. W. Duncan, of Metlakahtla,
Alaska, is a portly, benevolent looking
old gentlemari of j-rlnps sixty-live
years, and the world has been iiia'le
better by the grand work in which tin
declining years of his life are being
spent. When interviewed by a rejxir'.er
he was reticent ut iirst in speaking of
the fruits of his philanthropic labors in

farmers were saying.
"Well, John," said one, "what do you
think of itV"
"It's pretty good," said the other, "but
there's one thing about it that strikes
rne as a little mite queer."
"What's that?''
"Why, he's got Eve with a Rhode Isl
and greening in her hand."
"Well, what of it?"
"Hum! Seeing that the first Rhode
Island greening was raised in this cen-

Safe Sheep Stealing.
Among the guests at the Palace ia
Joseph Cohen, of Red Bluff, who is
credited with owning nearly or quite
half of that portion of the state l'ing
north of Ynba county. Sheep and cattle
form the greater portion of Mr. Cohen's
wealth aside from his landed interests,
and it is said that in order to acquit a
man who has been arrested for sheep or
cattle stealing it is only necessary to
prove that they were stolen from Joseph
"At one time," said United States At
torney Garter, "I was emplo3ed by Mr.
Cohen to transact a portion of his legal
business, and among other things I had
to assist in the prosecution of men for
stealing sheep. I can truthfully say that
I do not know of a single case where a
man was convicted by a jnry when it
was proved bj- the defense that the prop
erty had originally belonged to Cohen."
