Against these rouiih stones every

are seen Hebrews of all countr es
and of all ages, of both sexes, rich
and poor alike, weeping and bewail
ing the desolation which has come
upon them, and upon the city of
their former glory.
Whatever may be their faith, it is
beautiful and sincen; and their
grief is actual and without dissimu
lation. They kiss the wails, and
beat their breasts, and tear their
hair, Mid rend their garments, and
the leal tears they shed come fiom
their hearts and their souls, as well
as from their eyes.
They ask for no backsheesh; they
pay no attention to the curious and
inquisitive heretics and Gentiles,
who pity while they wonder at them.
They read the Lamentations of
Jeremiah and the mournful words
of Isaiab; they wail for the days that
are gone, and they pray for the God
of Abraham, the God of Isaac and
the God of Jacob, that tney may get
their own again. Philadelphia

special to the Times Union from St.
Augustine, Fla., says: John Sullies,
whoshotand killed Euudolph Ligou
here last Thursday had a preliminary
hearing today before Judge Forward!
and was discharged, altogether the
evidence showed that Sullies delib
erately killed Ligon. Some months
before the killing Ligou eloped with
Mrs. Sullies. The couple went to
Texas where they were living as man
and" wife. Sullies learned their
whereabouts and had them extradite
ed to answer a change of adultery,
committed in this State. Mrs.
Suliies and Ligon were brought
back to St. Augustine last Thursr
day, arranged in court and released
on their own recognizances. After
leaying court Ligon was walking
down the street when he met
Sullies. As the latter saw the de
spoiler of his home he drew a pistol
and shot him dead.

"Ayer's Cathartic Tills f-r over thirty
yours liavd kept nie in oo(P health,
never having had a sick day in all that
time. Before I was twenty 1 suffered
almost continually as a result of con
stipation from dyspepsia, headaches,
neuralgia, or ho'Is and other eruptive
diseases. When I became convinced
that nine-tenths of my troubles were
caused by constipation, 1 began the use
of Ayer's Tills, with the most satisfac
tory results, never having a single,
attack that did not readily yield to this
remedy. My wife, who had been an
invalid for years, also began to use
Ayer's Tills, and her health was quickly
restored. With my children 1 had no
ticed that nearly all t heir ailments were
preceded by constipation, and 1 soon
had the pleasure of knowing that with
children as with parents, Ayer's Tills,
if taken in season, avert all danger of
sickness." H. Wkttstkin, Byron, 111.
