P ALGONA. IOWA. WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 22, 1899. My Mother Had Consumption •KK^MHMttttMMMmi _ "My mother was troubled with consumption for many yeats. At last- site -was given up to die, A neighbor told her ftot to give tip but try Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. She did so and was speedily cured, and is now in the enjoyment of good health." D'/P. jolly, 8 Feb. 2, 1899. Avoca,N>Y. Cures Hard Coughs ••••ram.n.'iiiijf. imumin | |IMIL| No matter {sow hard your cough is or how long you -have had it, Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is the best thing you could possibly take. But it's too risky to. -wait until you have consumption, for sometimes it's impossible <o cure this disease. If YOU are coughing today, don t wait until tomorrow, but get a bottle of Cherry Pectoral at once and be relieved. It strengthens weak lungs. Three sizes: 25o., enough for an ordinary ooldj Me., ]ust right for asthma, bronchitis, hoarseness, whooping-cough, bard colds' SI.W most economical for chronic cases and to keop ou hand. Clucks for Oncer Uses. K One of the latest developments of the |pmmon domestic clock is worthy of ferious attention. It comes .from Swit- ierland and takes the form of a phonographic attachment to an ordinary Pock, which at any desired hour of the morning will shout: "It is (seven) g^clock; get up! Now, don't go to ileep again!" The possibilities of an gxtension of this principle are im- ||nense. There might be clocks for the oxing ring, saying, "Time, gentle|men,"and clocks for the parliamentary pOre, with a cry .of "Vide! vide!" jghurch congregations which bave suf- p|red many things at the hands of Bong-winded preachers might subscribe a clock which should utter a sonor- "Amen!" at the end of a suitable |4ieriod. Equally valuable would be a fpinepiece which should convey a gentle hint to. the unwanted caller; in- pied, this particular development is so ^tractive that I am thinking of enlisting its aid for the purpose of shorten- »g editorial interviews at the Truth Office.—London Truth.

CONSUMPTION Remafkabld Strength of Prices Still Maintained, SOME SHRINKAGE IN DEMAND troh and Steel Product* At* ftot So Eagerly Sought For as a JTeir Weeks l*o—Wheat and Cotn Shipments— Failures for the Week. New York, Nov. 20.—R. Q. Dim & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "The signs of shrinkage in the new deftiand for iron and steel products become more clear, and while prices of pig are maintained without change and billets are quoted lower pnly because premiums for earlier deliveries are no longer paid, plates are quoted lower at the east, with some small mills selling at 2.5 cents at Pittsburg and sheets are sold by some works there at $5 to $4 less than the regular price. Shipments of boots and shoes fall off, and yet are larger than in any previous year. Textile manufactures are doing well, although in woolens the speculation in material threaten to cause some embarrassment. Worsted goods are in good demand and have been advanced in price with somo flannels. Failures for the week were 219 in the United States, against 22L last year, and 20 in Canada, against 26 last year." Bradstreet's says: "General trade and industry continue at a maximum volume for thia season of the year, while prices as a whole manifest a strength unap proached in recent years. Strength in values is still most notable among manufactured textiles, but cereals, hides, leather and manufactures thereof have also strengthened slightly. On the other hand, pork products, raw cotton and tin are slightly lower. The great majority of prices, however, remain firm at unchanged quotations. Wheat, including flour, shipments foi the week aggregated 4,540,007 bushels, against 4,050,842 bushels last week. Corn exports for the week aggregate 4,603,718 bushels, against 4,581,447 bushels last week." "SOUNO-MONEY" BILL TO PASS Financial measure Likely to Uo Adopted by the Next C<mg;roHB. Washington, Nov. 20.—President H. H. Hanna of the Indianapolis "sound- money" commission, who is in Washington in the interests of the financial bill drawn by the house republican caucus committee, said he felt confident the measure, or one on similar lines, would be passed by both branches of congress at the coming session. He looks for early action in the house and thinks little change will be made by the senate. The senate finance sub-committee has not finished consideration of the caucus bill, but it is thought a meeting will be held before the assembling of congress, though final action may be postponed until the vacancies of tno finance committee are filled. Sdliley Has Made No Move. Washington, Nov. 20.—Rear Admiral Schley has not yet asked for a court of inquiry, as he is understood to have been advised to do by some of his friends, on account of the official criticism of his conduct in a letter sent by Secretary Long to the president. Today is the last day when he may do this, as he expects to join his ship at once. The department officials do not expect Schley to make the request. If he doeu a board will toe convened at once. It is understood the composition of such a board, in anticipation of Schley's demand, has been arranged, so no time may 'be wasted' in taking up the subject. Adam Hoivell Ulog In Ohlcaeo. .Chicago, Nov. 20.— Adam Howell, president of the Hawkeye Insurance company of Des Moines, Iowa, died in Mercy hospital last evening.

He was one of the wealthiest men in Iowa, Kud °f the Steamer Patrlu. Hamburg, Nov. 20.— It is reported from Cuxhaven that the Athesia, which had the burning liner Putria in tow, broke away near <the North Hinder lightship, on account of the frightful heat.

He once said he had been insulted by Deacon Smith. The good brother asked for further explanation. "Well," said Corwin, "when I stood up at the lectih-e-room to relate my experience, and .t opened my mouth, Deacon Smith rose up in front and said: 'Will some brother close that window and keep it closed?'" One day Bunsen sat with another shining light of Heidelberg University, who like him had had the highest honors bestowed ttpon him that could be gained in a scientific career. Dunsen was cool and taciturn, while his colleague never ceased to chatter of his financial losses, suffered through the great fall in Turkish bonds. 15un- sen remained silent while 'the other went on to console himself in this wise: "I can get a certain amount of consolation for my bad investments out of the fact that the great Hehnholtz hiin- iself invested pretty heavily in Turkish bonds, and has lost a lot of money, too.' 1 Then, at last, Uunseii broke his silence with the laconic words: "1 didn't think Itclmholtsi was so big a fool." An old Irish laborer walked into the luxurious studio of an artist and asked for_ money to obtain a meal. Ho explained that he had just been discharged from the county hospital and wns too weak to work, lie was given a quarter and departed. One of four young- Indies, art students, who were .present, said: "Mr. Madder can't wo hire that old man and sketch him?" Madder ran out and caught him, and said: "If you can't work, and want to make a dollar, come back to my rooms. The young ladies want to paint you.'' The Irishman hesitated,, so Madder remarked: "It won't take long, and it's an easy way to make" a dollar." "Oi know that," was the reply, "but Oi was a-wonderin' how th' divil Oi'd git the paint off aftherward." Murat Halstcad, the great journalist of war-times, went to General William T. Sherman's headquarters once for "the latest news from the front." Halstead was armed with many fine introductory letters, but decided to rely mainly on one given him by Thomas ISwiug, Sherman's brother-in-law. Ho found the general and presented Kvvin's letter. The general opened it somewhat impatiently, read a few lines, folded it and said: "Ah, you come from Ewin, and you desire to have 'all the latest news'—the. 'next probable move'of our army—eh'.' Well, there's a train leaving this town for Cincinnati at two o'clock. Here, tuke this ticket and step over there and get your dinner—and then get on that train." "Well, but, General Sherman " began the newspaper man; but Sherman waved him off. "Go over and get a good dinner; we havo plenty and always strive to treat our friend's well. But bo sure you don't miss that two-o'clock train!" And Halstcad wisely obeyed. Plso's Cure for Consumption is the best of all cough cures.—George W. LoU, Fauucher, La., August 20, 1895. The hunter has taken the flshermun'3 place. There Is n Class of I'eoplo Who are injured by the use of coffee. Recently there has been placed in nil the grocery stores a new preparation called GRAIN-O, made of pure grains, that takes the place of coffee.

In addition to the regular Pullman porter, each car is accompanied by an intelligent, competent and courteous "courier," who will attend to the wants f;f passengers en route. This is an entirely new feature of tourist car service, and will be appreciated by families or by ladies traveling alone. Particular attention Is paid to the care of children, who usually get weary on a long journey. These tourist cars are sleeping cars supplied with all the accessories necessary to make the journey comfortable and pleasant, and the berth rate (each berth will accommodate two persons) is only ?6.00 from Chicago to California.

Writes us, May SI, 1899: "i feel it my duty to write and let you know what your medicine, '5 Drops,' has done for me. 1 have had rheumatism about eighteen years, but was able to be up most of the time until a year ago last May, when I was taken down and not able to move about.
