not more than half way through
their teens, exhibited themselves
openly in various stages of in
toxication, and for this cause, if
no other, Christmas day, 1899,
will long remain a painful memory."

the wonders of the closing of the

by the people of this region.
Throughout the autumn and thus
far in the winter the climate
has been marked by mildness
and an absence of snow or rain.

Mr. J E Lilly, a prominent citizen of

weak I couldn't even sit up in bed.
Nothing helped me. I expected to soon
die of consumption, when T heard of
Dr. King's New Discovery. Ono bottle
gave great relief. 1 continued to Use it
and now am well and strong, I can't
say too much in its praise." This
marvellous medicine is the 'surest and
quickest cure in the world for all
