Gorman News Bureau, Raleigh, N. C, April 30, 190G. Raleigh will soon be called upon to go through the excitement and disagreeableuess of another election on the whiskey question, and as the resultwf the queerest political com bination that has manifested itself practically in North Carolina in many vears. The petition asking for an elec tion to substitute prohibition tor the dispensary, when it goes before the p.lderuianic board Jriulay night, will not bear the signature of a sin gle one of the pastors of the score of city churches, nor the names of the oflicers of the anti-saloau league, nor those of scores of the men who have in the past been in the fore front of every battle against the liquor evil in this city. But it will show the names of uearly every former saloon owner pnd bir keeper or liquor clerk and the signatures of most or all of those who were most active in the unsuccessful effort made here last fall to have a1 election ordered to substitute the old saloon system for the dispensary. These facts speak for themselves.

I had been a severe sufferer from nervous prostration for two yea ff and everything I ate disagreed with tne. ,phis made me feel so wretch ed and bad all the time that life was a harden; and I felt that I had rather die than live. I could not eat meat or any solid food at all, and everything I did eat caused me to suffer. I had terrible nervous spells, when I would become cold And feel almost lifeless then hot baths would have to be applied. I suffer ed fiooi gas on the stomach all the time, and so Weak I diln't do any work for twelve months. Nothing I tried did me any good. I was in that condition when Mrs. Joe Person called to see me last July and said everything she could to persuade me to try her Remedy, as she was so confident it would cure me. I bought a half dozen bottleft and felt a great deal better by the time I had taken the third I continued it until I took 18 bot tles, which CURED me. My indi gestion is well and I can eat any thing I want, and it is very seldom I ever have even a touch of nervous ness. My health is good and life itself seems like) a different thing to me and well worth living. VV nen I commenced the Remedy L weighed 105 pounds, now I weigh 140 pounds, which was my natural weight before I was taken sick. If any one suffers from indiges tion or nrvoas prewtra'ion, they need not hesitate to try the Remedy. I would not lake any amount of money for wbat it did for me. . Mrs. J. D. Bkevard.
