PROHIBITION —We are glad to see a
disposition manifest oi the part of friend
and foe to keep prohibition out of poli
ties, but fear it will engender a feeling
of strife, and it will between neighbors.
This should uot be, it being a question
in which tbe people are individually in.
terested, and should be fairly and hon
estly discussed, so as to thr»w the great
est amount of light on the subject that
tbe people may vote' intelligibly on it
next August We believe that any dis
position to use fraud by the ami men
will add strength to the prohibition
cause, or, if used by th« prohibitionists,
will add to the strength of the opposition.
It ii said that "seeing is believing,"
and that "acts gpeak louder than words "
Be that ai it may, the anti prohibition
ists are doing more tor the cause in this
oounty than all the prohibition speakers
and papers combined. By manufactur
ing and selling poison liquors, and law

of the State. They are fust turning
public opinion against the legitimate, a
well as the unlawful traffic in whiskey.
If public opinion once set squarely
against it, the traffic will ba killed quick

His LAST DOSE —Said a sufferer
from kidney troubles wheu asked to try
Kidney-Wort. "I'll tiy it but it will
be my Lst d'ise " Tlio man got well,
and is now reoouiuiending the remedy
to all. When derangement of the
stomach acts upon the kidneys und liver
bringing disease and paiu, Kidney-Wort
is the true remedy. It removes the
cause and cures the disease. Liquid
(very concentrated) nr dry act squally
efficiently.— A in . Cultivator
SYMPTOMS.—SIight pain in the side,
the skin and eyei assume a thick yellow
ooat, degestion is impaired, an unpleasant
sinking sensation at the pit of tho stom
ach is experienced, the bowels are irreg
ular, the mind fretful, tho memory weak
ened, sometimes a slight cough, coldness
of the hands anil feet, sometimes loss of
apjiCfito and at others unnatural craving
for food, dizziness of the head, depretsed
spirits, feeling ol uncertainty, of having
left something undone, but can't tell
what it is. Take Simmons' Liver Reg
ulator, it will remove all unpleasant feel
ings ar.d make you well.
".WI THER HAS RECOVERED,"—wroIo
an Illinois girl to her Eastern relatives.
"She took bitters 'for a long t':u)« but
without any good So when she heard
of the virtu?s of Kidney-Wort she got
a box and it has completely cured her,
so that she can do as much work now
as Bbe could before we moved West.
Since she has got well everyone about
here is taken it." See adv.

FROM THE Hun—There is perhaps
