Al times some people feel dis
gusted. Nothing suits them.
They have no appetite, they hate
society, they find no pleasure in
anything. They are not sick,
neither are they well. It is evi
dent that their blood is poor,
their digestion not regular, their
nerve power weakened on account
of lack of food. You will have to
select a remedy which will thor
oughly clean out your body, give
you a good appetite and strength
en your digestive organs. Such
a remedy is, as you well know,
Trir.er's American Elixir of Hit
ler Wine. It is composed of wine
and laxative and tonic herbs. It
will expel from (he intestines un
digested remnants of food and
will enable the body to accept and
digest enough nutritious food to
supply all organs with pure and
rich blood. You will receive new
energy. Al, drug stores. Jos.

The funeral of Mrs. Eva Mar
garetha Ohlenhauseu was held
yesterday afternoon from St.
Paul's church at, 2 o'clock and
was attended by a vast crowd of
old friends, who gathered for the
last time to pay tribute lo tin's
worthy lady, who for so many
years had been a resident of this
city and county. The sermon was
preached by Rev. .1. 11. Sieger,
pastor of the church, who took
for his text the words, "It, is
enough, take my .soul from me,"
and spoke of the forbearance with
which the aged lady had borne
her mouths of siigering when she
knew that, recovery was impos
sible, and the Christian fortitude
displayed during her long and
useful life in both joy and sor
row. The choir of the church
sang several of the favorite
hymns of the departed, which had
been so well loved in her lifetime,
and there was no one present at
the church that did not feel that,
surely hers had been a peaceful,
upright Christian life in the ful
lest, sense of the term.
The body was borne lo its last
resting place by the following
old friends and neighbors: Jacob
Trilsch, Leonard Horn, Theodore
Slarkjohn, John Hauer, sr., Jacob
Meisinger and Conrad Meisinger.
The (loral tributes were magnifi
cent and lavish and attested the
deep feeling of the loss to her
friends throughout ihe county.
