WHEN ASHCRAFT'S Condi
tion Powder are fed to horse
nnd mules, marked improvement
will be seen after the first few
dose. There U no doubt about it.
The Powders, acting directly on the
digestive organs, first thoroughly
cleanses the stomach and bowels,
correcting all disorders, and then
good healthy appetite comes nat
urally and surely. It is the most
powerful tonic and nppctizer on
the market to-day, and when once
used horsemen will have no other.
Asluraft's Powders produce that
silky sheen of coat and hair so
admired by horse fanciers. The
Powder fatten but never bloat.
Always high grade and put up
in doses never in bulk.
Hy the use of three or (our doses
a week your horse or mule will
not lc subject to colic or any dis
ease of the stomach nnd bowels.

This section bus Iss-n blessed
with plenty of rain for the past few
weeks, rather too much for cotton
for it is causing it to shed.
Mr. W. T. Uorie, Jr., is right
sick with typhoid fever.
The annual protracted meeting
at Philadelphia Baptist church will
begin on Saturday before the 4th
Sunday, and at lieulah Preshyte-
riau church on rriday before the
tilth Sunday in August.
The teiupernuoe rally at Ileuluh
was not well attended. Col, Hotch-
kisa was ou band to apeak, but so
few were present that the meeting
broke up without any speaking
more than social cbat in which
the colonel told how much t'uion
county spent for whiskey annually,
but this failure was not due to a
lark of temperance sentiment.

er an extraordinary acliivciiic ut
for a woman without meai.s,
without prcMip', without Is-auty
and apparently without ss-cial
talent. Not very long after Ibis
event, she took a trip and 011 her
return Iroiu the trip she represent
ed that she had met 011 the railway
train an American named Craw
ford. The way in wksvh she bad
conn- to make his ai'imintaiire
was that Crawford was sick and
she bad done some little services
for him while traveling and as
ftawford grew wmse she took bun
to u hospital at some point along
the line. She represented fill titer
that Crawford bad with hiui a lot
of Isuids and stocks to the value of
a million dollars which he gave to
her for sale keeping until lie should
Ih fully recovered. The.-e IhuiiIs
and stocks Mrs. Humls-it put into
a Nile alterwiirds, anil from time to
time she represented tlie amount of
Unids which Crawford had sent to
her for safe keeping was iucrcusid
to two millions, then to live mil
lions, then to leu millions theu to
twenty millions and then to lilly
nullum dollars. In the meantime
Mrs. Humbert devised tt story iu
uecotdance with which under cer
ium ctslitions which she never
made very plain, she was to have
a large" interest in the properly.
She brotighl up from her former
home iu the province a sister, and
not very long after the sister came
she represented (but it hud Is-en ar
ranged by Mr. ( rawfiud that ins
nephew mid Mrs. llumlsMt's sister
Is- hiui ricil, and out of this fifty
million dollars should come 11 very
liuiidsomc dot for the bride; but iu
some way, she herself would have
a very large interest in the remain
der. 'On the basis of these stories
which are generally very vaguely
foliuuliitid. she excited sillliejei I
interest to induce bankers to make
loans to her based upon this pros
pective fortune. With her first
loan she built 11 line house. Sin
set up an estiililisiiieut 11ml enter
taint il lavishly. Her aggregated
loans went into the hundred thou
sands. Liter she built liner bouses
and purchased u hunting box iu
the country. Her entertainments
became the most coiispieioiis in
Paris, conspicioiw as well for the
quality of her guests as lor tlie
expense of the entertainments.
She cunt limed to Imrmw until tne
aggregate passed the million mark.
She increased the extravangaiice
of her living nnd continued to Inn
row until the aggregate passed
the live-million mark. She still
further continued to borrow from
the bankers until the aggregate
passed the ton million mark.
Think of it! Without anything
in the world as an underlying basis,
this woman I oi unveil more than
ten millions of dollarsaud has kept
up the bnisness of borrowing for
more than twenty years. Kleven
bankers have committed suicide on
account of the ruin that the loans
have wrought. 1 hiring this ti

is now in progress. Mrs Hum
I. -it is more theatrical in the court
than Ibi-yfus was. The prosecnt
tug attorney makes a statement
and Mrs lliiinls-rt gets up and iu
a theatrical way calls liim a liar.
The judge makes a ruliiigaiid Mrs.
IIuiiiImiI p'ts up and tells him
that be is prejudiced. She insists
that il the prosecution is continued
cvcrvthiiig may be spoiled; that
she is able to produce the Craw
ford, and that she will do this at
the proH-r time. The law vers ami
the coin t tiy to Mrsuade her to
make full statement and she tie
elines Then at another time she
gets up and oilers to make a full
statement and the court declines
to hear her, aud so the trial is go
iug on, looking to an American
like more of a travesty than the
llreyliis trial was. K.ich phase ol
these priKitilings seems incredible.
To think, that for twenty yearn 11
comparatively uneducated woman
could go 011 Isirrowiiig money
while loaners never saw a security
worth one cent, and that these loans
should aggregate leu milliiis of dol
lars, is more than iimaing. il can
not seem reivsoiiable.
Although the story bus ls-en told
iu the papers as it has progressed,
the public has In 11 large extent
lost the thread of it. For this rea
sou the proceedings of the trial ex
cite very little interest. The
thread of the story is lost, but even
ut this date Mis. IIiiiiiIh iI is defi
