Timely information given Mrs. George
Long of New Straitsville , Ohio , prevented a
dreadful tragedy and saved two lives. A
frightful cough had long kept her awake
every night. She had tried many remedies
and doctors but steadily grew worse until
urged to try Dr. King's New Discovery. One
bottle wholly cured her , and she wntts this
marvelous medicine also cured Mr. Long of
a severe attack of pneumonia. Such cures
are positive proof of the matchless merit of
this grand remedy for curing all throat , chest
and lung troubles. Only TOc and Si. Every
bottle guaranteed. Trial bottles free at McConnell -

Many of the blotches , pimples and other

that he would have to work a little strategy
on them. His plan was to distribute frozen
peas about their resorts , reasoning that they
would be so hard that the rabbits would shut
their eyes when they tried to bite them , and
while in this attitude he and George would
make a sneak on them with a salt-shaker.

The Craving For Stimulant * .
The blood normally contains stimu
lants , and that these stimulants exer
cise a favodug influence on function
and conduce to and may even be a nec
essary factor In the production of tlie
feeling of well being explains the wide
spread liking in man and beast for
stimulating substances. This liking ,
amounting often to a craving , is the
expression of a great physiological
principle. When health Is perfect ,
when the blood Is well provided with
its proper stimulants and not over
charged with depressants , there Is no
craving for extraneous stimulants , such
as alcohol , tea or coffee , but when the
blood Is defective in the one or sur
charged with the other then Is felt the
desire for the glass of wine or the cup
In order to obviate this desire the
body should be kept at the highest lev
el of health. The more perfect the
health the more perfect will be the
composition of the blood In respect to
both physiological stimulants and dele
terious toxins. A blood properly con
stituted in these and other respects
will exercise a gentle stimulant action
on the nervous system and induce a
condition of mild physiological intoxi
cation , which expresses Itself In a feel
ing of well being and happiness a con
dition that cannot be bettered. Lan

which may serve to illustrate my

with grief , that her neighbor could not

his nose so as to hide his tears , told
how she bad lost first one child and
within a very few days another. Ev
ery one pitied her greatly , but when
she proceeded with many tears to tell
of the death of a third child her hear

finally , when she launched into a long
account of the loss of a fourth de
