SPENCER AND PERUNA.
Query as to Whether Republican States

Spencer B has ruined himself.
He has come forth brazenly in a
display advertisement to tell of the
greatness and joy in a drink of
Peruna. He is right there, top of
column next to reading matter,

frock cqat, posing beautifully for
the artist, while his silk hat roats
upon his magnificent physique.
"I cheerfully join my friend,
Senator Pritchard," he says, "in

safe upon retiring when a bottle
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
was in the house, His oldest

ff "THIS IS A HORSE"
ONCE there was a small boy who wrote "This Is a Horse "after trying
for hours to draw a copy on his slate of a thoroughbred racer. N He
admired the horse, wanted it, but had neither the ability nor the
experience to get him. He therefore tried to draw one. When his labors
were complete, he looked first at the genuine article, then at the miserable
imitation, and after long, deep study wrote THIS IS A HORSE, realizing
his failure and inability to reproduce the genuine, and he knew without This is a Horse
written below, no one would recognize what he had tried to make. Would-be competitors
have tried for years to imitate Grape Tobacco. They make bla k plugs of similar size, but
of less weight, and put in it all sorts of various concoctions, mixtures and kinds of Tobacco,
but all failed (to get the business) and finally hitiipon the small boy s plan, and printed on
the tag "SOMEBODY'S SUN CURED." They all advertise and tell you that SOMEBODY S
SUN CURED tag is valuable Of course it is (it cost about 15 cents per thousand) but how
