Most people are more or less sub

remedy that will break up a cold
quickly and cure any cough that is
curable is made by mixing two ounces
of Glycerine, a half-ounce of Virgin
Oil of Pine compound pure and eight
ounces of pure Whisky. You can get
these in any good drug store and eas

mixture is highly recommended by

ENCOURAGING SIGNS CF LIFE
Liberal Contribution in United
States and Canada for Work
of the Foreign Missions.
f In spite of the financial depression
the offerings of the United States and
Canada for foreign missions increased
last year $602,000. The increase of in
come from the foreign field was even
more remarkable, being $1,360,000.
The total gifts on the foreign field
was $4,844,000, and this amount 'was
48 per cent, of the total amount con
tributed for foreign missions by the
Protestant churches of North America.
The increase of native converts last
year was 164,674, or over 450 a day.
The cumulative effects of the foreign
mission enterprise is shown by the
fact that it took 100 years to gain the
first million converts. The second
million were secured in 12 years, and
they are now being added at the rate
of a million in six years. The percent
age of the increase of the church
membership of America was one and
one-half, while the increase of Amer
ican missions abroad was 12 per cent.
Two members were added in America
for each ordained minister, while 41
were added in the foreign field for
each ordained American missionary.

New York. Federal secret service
agents under orders from Chief John E.
Wilkie, have been making a canvass
of jewelers' and electroplating shops
in the Maiden lane district in an effort
to run down persons suspected of
stripping coins that is, removing
small quantities of gold or silver from
the surfaces of coins by a chemical
process. Inquiries also were made as
to several new kinds of coin jewelry,
Including articles made from Lincoln
The inquiry as to coin stripping was
started after many circulating coins,
including $20 gold pieces, were found
to be short of the prescribed -weight.
The loss seemed to be more than is
usual when coins are worn off from
frequent handling. They are suspi
cious that coins have been reduced
in weight by the stripping process, in
which. they are. dipped for an hour or
.two in aqua regia, a mixture of nitric
and hydrochloric acids. Into which an

also have been stripped, it is sus

Many coins that have been offered
for deposit at banks recently have the
designs brought out more sharply than
is natural. It is supposed that these
coins have been stripped and were
left in the acid hath too long. But
even in these coins the untrained eye
would see no sign of mutilation. One
of the largest electroplaters said that
strippers could take as much as a
pennyweight of gold, worth more than
a dollar, from a $20 gold 'piece with

are destroyed as currency, and many
jewelers fuse gold coins instead of go
ing to the trouble of getting bullion
for the purpose. None of the estab

being engaged in the illegitimate prac
tice. It is supposed that temporary
plants are put up by strippers in se
cluded lofts of factory buildings, as
little equipment is required.
The fad for Lincoln pennies In jew
elry received attention because a
gold plated penny might be mistaken
for a five-dollar gold piece. It was re
called that when the five-cent nickels
were first used they did not have the
word "cent" on them. Many such
coins were plated with gold and
passed on ignorant immigrants as
five-doliar gold pieces.
The secret service men who in
quired here as to the use of the
gold plated pennies made no objection
to such plating. Jewelers have made
inquiries of the authorities here and
in Washington, and have been in
formed that the law as to mutilation
of coins applies only to gold and sil
ver coins. Besides, pennies are made
more valuable by gold plating.
In certain western cities, it is re
ported, the federal authorities have
prohibited manufacturers of jewelry
from plaiting Lincoln pennies with
gold. That is held to account for an
Increased demand on the manufactur
ers here who make the pennies into
scarf pins, brooches and other art!

The Blood is The Life"
Science has never gone beyond the above simple
statement of scripture. But it has illuminated that
statement and given it a meaning ever broadening
with the increasing breadth of knowledge. When
the blood is " bad " or impure it is not alone the
body which suffers through disease. The brain is
also clouded, the mind and judgement are effected,
and many an evil deed or impure thought may be ,
directly traced to the impurity of the blood.
Foul, Impure blood can be made pure by tbe
use ot Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
It enriches and purities the blood thereby
curing, pimples, blotches, eruptions and other cutaneous affec
tions, as eczema, tetter, or salt-rheum, hives and other manifes
tations of Impure blood.
In the cure of scrofulous swellings, enlarged glands, open eating
ulcers, or old sores, the " Golden Medical Discovery " has per
formed the most marvelous cures. In cases of old sores, or open
eating ulcers, it is well to apply to the open sores Dr. Pierce's All
Healing Salve, which possesses wonderful healing potency when
used as an application to the sores in conjunction with the use of
"Golden Medical Discovery" as a blood cleansing constitutional
treatment. If your druggist don't happen to have the "All-Healing
Salve" in stock, you can easily procure it by inclosing fifty
cents in postage stamps to Dr. R.V. Pierce, 663 Main St., Buffalo,
, N. Y., and it will come to you by return post. Most druggists
keep it as well as the " Golden Medical Discovery."
You can't afford to accept any medicine of unknown composition as a sub
stitute for "Golden Medical Discover'," which is a medicine of known com
position, having a complete list of ingredients in plain English on its bottle
wrapper, the same being attested as correct under oath. . '
