The following from the pen of Mr. L. P. Bard
well , editor of The Marion ( Iowa ) Pilot , will
we believe , be of interest to many of our read
ers. He says : "It is with pleasure that I certify
to the real merits of Chamberlain's Cough
Bemedy. I have used it in my family for years
and have always found it most excellent , and
especially for colds , croup and sore throat. It
is safe and effective. " For sale by all drug-

ury Magazine at a cost of $1,500 to properly set

Gentlemen I can cheerfully and truth
fully say that S. S. S. is the greatest blood
purifier on earth. In 1884 I contracted
blood poison. Physicians treated me with ?
no good results. I took a half dozen differ-
ent kinds of blood medicines , but , without *
receiving any permanent relief ! I was in
duced to try 3. S. S. I began the first i
bottle with the gravest doubts of success.
I had been so often deceived. But im- *
provement came , and I continued its use a
until perfectly well. I have since married ,
and have a healthy family. No trace of the f
disease is seen. Swift's Specific did all
this for me , and I am grateful. Yours a
truly , J. S. Strader. r

We need more sermons on tho fallacy of
high license , or doing evil that good may come.
It doesn't come. Wo need more sermons on
tho guilt of Christians In making no effort to
closo tho gilded doors to destruction. Wo need
to talk with each other more and assist in
forming a healthy public sentiment about tho
"Prohibition does prohibit. " Tho Iowa
State Register says : "In over eighty counties
it is absolutely enforced. In ten moro it is
more or less enforced. In only a few it is any
longer resented , and defied. " As a conse
quence , out of ninety-nine counties , fifty-nine
county Jails are without an Inmate , "Some
of them empty for tho first time in years , "
says the governor in bis last message. High
license does license. The secretary of the
Liquor Dealers' Association in Nebraska says :
"The $1,000 license nas in no measuro decreas
ed tho amount of liquor sold. "
"Death in the cop , " says tho orator.
"Death in the cup , " says tho poet. "Death in
the cup , " says the scientist , and the latter's
declaration is the one that carries most weight.
He enforces his warning as follows , clipped
from the pages of an exchange : "Tho great
London fever of 1769 took scarcely anybody
but drunkards and tipplers. Dr. Carnwrlght ,
of New Orleans , says the yellow fever in I860
took 5,000 drinking men before it touched a
sober man. In the United Kingdom of Eng
land , Ireland and Scotland , ono visit of cholera
swept away over 10,000 persons not half a
dozen teetotalers in that number. In that city
of Montreal , SCO teetotalers had the cholera ,
and but one of them died ; while 1,500 drinking
men died of tho disease. "
THE KINDERGIARTEN OF CRISIE.
Is it not plain that the saloon is really a po
tent factor in what are known as "hard times ? "
A leech which is never filled , which is always
sucking in money out of tho pocket of the
masses , must not its effect be finally to aid in
the scarcity of money and tho derangement
of the financial balance ? It certainly should
bo clear to every one that this is the effect.
There are men who have so little power of
thought as to believe in a sort of helpless ,
childish way that tho saloon "aids business ; "
then suppose , apparentlyr.becauso ; money
passes in the transaction that it must neces
sarily be "business. " There is not the first
element of real business about it. Trade , or
commerce , presupposes ( the exchange of one
commodity for another. Generally one of
these is money. In every legitimate transac
tion both buyer and seller have practically
equivalent values in their hands after its com
pletion. Tho first one had a sum of money ,
the second one had an equivalent amount of
goods. They exchange , and the second one
has the money , the first one has tho goods.
But in the caso of the saloon , how 'is it ? The
workingman pays over his money. What has
he to represent that money as he staggers
home to his miserable family ? Nothing and
worso than nothing. Ho has not only lost his
money , but he has degraded his manhood , in1
jured his health , lost his self-respect and the J
respect and confidence of all decent men. The 1
exchange is abominably one-sided. It is enJ
tirely to the advantage.of the saloonist. He 1
has the money and the drinker has lost not t
only it , but all that makes life worth living 1
along with it. There is no "business" about
the saloon. It is the establishment which '
fosters idleness and debauchery , which ini
creases the poverty and degradation of humant
ity ; it is the training school of vice , the kindi
ergarten of crime. It is an evil tree , and its 1
fruits are evil. It is astonishing that any sane .
man can allow himself , even by implication ,
to do aught that will aid in continuing its ex
istence or in fostering its growth. Let every
honest reader-ponder the problem. Let him
measure the saloon by its fruits , and he will
speedily i agree with the Blade that the thing *
to do is to wipe out the saloons , prohibit the
manufacture and sale of rum , and thus pul
verize the rum power. Toledo Blade.
"I have used St. Patrick's Pills , " says Mr. J. =
Reynolds , of Mayfleld , Ky.t "and pronounce
them superior to any I have ever before used.
I do not hesitate to recommend them , know
ing them to be reliable. " They are thorough ,
yet gentle in their action and leave thesvstem
in splendid condition. As a cathartic , or for
disorders of the liver St. Patrick's Pills have
no equal. For sale by all druggists.
