on the advice of her physicians, she
went to' the hospital at Omaha, where
she could receive the care of a trained
nurse, hoping that a change might
Improve her condition, but after a
few days she d?slred to return to her
'home, and was allowed to do so. For
the past ten days Mrs. Furlong's con
dition has been critical, and the end

serious condition of their mother.
Mrs. Furlong Is survived by her

oFur children are dead.
Mrs. Furlong was a kind and oblig
ing. neighbor, a faithful wife, and lov
ing mother. Her hand was ever ready
to help the afflloted and her Christ
ian life was above reproach.
The foneral was held this after

An Unpleasant .Surprise.
Few people pay as much attention
to their weight as they should, be
cause' a radical change in the same
often is the only synlptom of sick
ness. When the notice that they are
losing weight rapidly and are inform
ed that It may be too late for a cure,
It certainly la an unpleasant surprise.
Weigh yourself often and as soon as
you will notice a decline of weight,
use the reliable tonic, Triner's Amer
ican Elixir of Bitter Wine. It .will
quickly expel all waste matter from
your body, strengthen your digestive
apparatus and restore your normal
weight, which means that It will re
store your health. It is very bene
ficial in all curable diseases of the
ftomach and intestines. It aids in
forming new, rich blood and supply
all parts of the body with nourish
ment. Very good for pale, sickly
and nervous peaple. At drug stores.
