Bow ninny Americana hara heard of
the state of Guerrero? It it one of the
richest mining redone of Mexico, and it
i Mid that iU soil in a crmt of silver and
IftiliL Here the first mines were workwJ
by the Spaniard, and the conntry con
tains hundreds of abnndoned mines n
day. It lies on the Pacific, and it is only
partially known. It had one mine which
produced 493,000 ounces of silver in a
few months, and it is surrounded by
srreat state which are now beinjr for the
tirt time carefully inventi(ated.
Qaxaca, jut Mow it, is now being
penetrated by the Mexican Southern
railroad, and this will bring a vaot Rfild
bearing region into the market Tlie
ntute is one in which President Diaz tu
I Kirn, and it is the one which will be on
the Tehunntepec ship railway, if it is ever
completed. It has vast areas of good
bind, and 1 know a half dozen American
rapitalints who expect to make fortunes
out of the coal fields which they say
have lieen (Uncovered in it.
Coal brings about twenty-six dollars a
tou in City of Mexico, and there are said
to be fine iron deposits in near proximity
to these coal fields. The climate of all
this part of Mexico is very fine, and the
capitalists who would buy some of the
Agricultural lands along this route would
mako a fortune. The public lands ute
worth from twenty to forty-five cents
an acre, aud they will raise cofTee and
n,'iir and all kinds of grains.
This new railroad will, and does al
ready, tap the mining regions of the
Hate of Pueblo, which contain both
silver and gold, and one of the finest
epecimens of gold ever brought into
Mexico City was shown to an American
business man there by an Indian from
this state about u month ago. It was a
nugget of solid gold as big as yoftr fist
The American entered into h cmiti-tic
with the man for the development of th
region where it was found, and h:

The eloquent bishop of Derry has, 1
iiear, Receipted an invitation from the
trustees of Columbia college to deliver
in Now York city during Lent, INIW. a
course of lectures on "The Evidences of
Christianity." Remem)ering that tlie
right reverend prelate is Hearing his sev
entieth year, it is not surprising, in his
letter to the bishop of Now York accept
ing the invitation, to find him saying
that his decision required a good deal of
consideration, but lie adds that it is a
nource of pleasure to him to think of
meeting his lordship "and many vener
able chiefs of the great and living blanch

The bishop, by birth uu Irishman, was
graduated at Oxford, where he won
many distinctions, ami he was Bampton

ian. Care In Choosing- Drinking Water.
More and more as a knowledge of
hygiene is spread will people be careful
as to the water they drink, for an im
pure article will as surely injure as Im
pure food. A case in point is just re
ported of two deaths and twenty-four
cases of disease from drinking the
water of an old well in Milwaukee.
For a long time tlie well has furbished
the water for half a dozen families in
tho neighborhood. About all the mem
tiers this summer partaking of the well
water became ill. ami their ailment
soon develoied into typhoid fever.
Near by is a foul marsh, the water from
which is supposed u have worked itself
into the well and thus contaminated it,
causing these deaths aud all ihe illness.
Probably tlie cost of the doctors' billu
and other expenses, together with the
loss of time, have been many hundreds
of dollars, or quite enough to have
brought clear water from home other
source. Herald of Health.

If there in a doubt in anybody's

We have sold Kly's Cream1 Halm
about three years, and have re
commended its use in more than a
hundred special cases of catarrh.
The unanimous answer to our in
quiries is, "It's the best remedy that
I ha ve ever used." Our experience
is, that where parties continued its
nse.it never fails to cure. J. II.

When I began using Kly's Cream
Ilalm my catat rh was so biid I had
headache the whole time and dis

From a letter written by Mrs. Ada
lv. Hurd of Groton, S. 1)., we quote:
"Was taken with a bad colli, which
settled on my lungs, cough set in
nntl finally terminated in consump
tion. Four doctors gave me up say
ing I could live but a short time. I
gave myself up to my Saviour, de
termined if I could not stay with
my friends on earth, 1 would meet
my absent ones above. My hus
band was advised to get Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption,
coughs and colds. I gave it a trial,
took in all eight bottles; it has cured
me ami thank God I am now a well
and hearty woman." Trial bottles

Kly's Cream Halm is especially
atlaptetl as a remedy for catarrh
which is aggravated by alkaline
tlust and tlry winds.--W. A. Hover.
My catarrh was very bad. For
thirty years I have been troubled
with it have tried a number of
remedies without relief. A drug
gist advised Kly's Cream Halm. I
have used only one bottle and I can
say I feel like a new man. I make
this voluntary statement that
others may know of the Halm.
