unsafe. The very men them
selves may fall victims to the
storm they are creating.
It is none too soon for men
who tank up their stomachs, and
fire their brains, so as to stifle
reason, to be taught some prac
tical lessons that law and order
is going to be guarded at terrible
hazzards and that they will find
themselves within the clutches
of the law. This lynch craze
must subside, for the decree
goes forth from a great majority
of the good men and women in our
land. It must not be unheeded
by those impulsive chaiactevs
that foster and iritate the very
weaknesses in human nature that
begets the crime over which we

after becoming acquainted, the
attachment will become more and
more fixed between the force and

patrons in its now cosy and
commodious home, and will give
them all the attention that the
arduous duties and cares will
permit. We are always cheered
and strengthened by the friendly

Coble is crime only in less degree
and calls for ferreting out and

us does this deplorable murder.
This is the second effort at
lynching that has been foiled in
our town within a few months,
either of which would have been
a great crime and an outrage
against the sturdy class of men
and women who stand for all that
is noble and good.
It is easy to see that if this
mania is allowed to spread no
man's life will be safe. There are
always accusers enough and in

A MOTHER TELLS HOW SHE
SAVED DAUGHTERS LIFE.
J am the mother of eight child
ren and have had a great deal of
experience with medicines. Last
summer my little daughter had
the dysentery in its worst form.
We thought she would die. I
tried every thing I could think of.
I saw by en advertisement in our
P' oer that Chamberlain's Colic,
Chokia Mid Diarrhoea Remedy
was highly recommended and
sent and got a bottle at once. It
proved to be one of the very best
medicines we ever had in the
house. It saved my little daught
er's life. I am anxious for every
mother to know what an excellent
medicine it is. Had f known it at
first it would have saved me a
great deal of anxietv and my
little daughter much cufiring.
