Sheriff Sims reported that the
absence of Mr. Hileman was due to
his being called to Hillsboro on ac
count of the Alliance shoe factory.
Pending the delay of committee
on resolutions Mr. Jesse Earnhardt
addressed the convention, strongly
urging the nomination of men true
to principle, not for official pie.
Mr. George C Goodman addressed
the convention on the subject of
fusion in which he took very posi
tive stand unfavorable to fusion
unless their demands were met.
Mr. J A Sims said Democrats j
claimed that good men could not be
had to serve as judges and registrars
with the Populist construction of
the law. He assured them that
Populists could be had for their
judges and registrars at the price,
and if the other parties could not
get them i: was not the Populists'
Mr. C A Pitts moved that the

he wanted to meet alter the Demo

Found dead !
Tli ere is something so shocking about
j puddn death th3t the mere mention of it
wrenches the nerves ot sensitive people.
Millions of people pray for deliverance from
it. Every Sunday in every Episcopal church
in the world, these words are said :
" From battle, and murder and sudden death,
Good Lord, deliver ur."
Just why sudden-death should be shock
ing, and death after lingering1 disease easy
to bear, would puzzle any one to tell. It
would seem that it would be more terrible
to see some loved one wasting away, daily
becoming weaker daily slipping toward a
death no less certain because it was slow is
coming. Consumption causes more deaths
than heart disease more than cholera
more than yellow fever more than any
other disease the world has ever known.
And yet people are careless about it. A man
in danger of sudden death from heart dis
ease can avoid the danger simply by keeping
quiet and avoiding excitement. Consump
tion goes right on with its deadly work, no
matter what the man does or how he con
ducts himself, if he doesn't take the righ?
medicine to cure it. Consumption affects
the whole body. It is a blood disease. It
permeates the whole system. It shows in
the lungs because the blood goes to the
lungs for purification. It carries impurities
there to be made pure. If there is too much
impurity, the lungs are over-worked over
loaded the impurity stops there. The
germs of disease stop there. They develop
and multiply and then consumption takes
definite form. Dr. Tierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery cures 98 per cent, of all cases
of consumption, lingering coughs, throat
and bronchial diseases if it is taken accord
ing to directions. Get it at drug stores .
