LAKE (1KN8V.A, Wig., May ?.— dial. ,'The ladies of out- beautiful little J town arts making 1 an interesting arid| exciting lime fur tobacco-using husbands, since the injurious effects of tobacco and the ease with which it can, be cUred-by a'preparation called No» To-Bac have been so plainly demon* Btrijted by the cure of Mr. E 1 . C, Waite. In a written statement; he says! "I smoked and chewed tobacco for twenty-three years, and I am sure that my case Was one of the worst in this part of the country. Even after I went to bed at night if I woke up I would want to chew or smoke. It was not only killing me'i but my -wife was also ailing from the injurious effects. Two boxes of No'To-Bac cured- me, and I have no more desire for tobacco than I have to jump out of the ..window. * I have gained twenty pounds in thirty dayst my wife is well, and we are in* deed both happy to say that' No-To- 15ac is truly 'worth its weight in gold' to us." The cure and improvement in Mr. Waite's case is looked upon as a miracle—in fact, it is the talk of the town and county, and it is estimated that over a thousand tobacco users will be using No-To-15ac within a few weeks. The peculiarity - about No-To-Bac as a patent medicine is that the makers, the Sterling Remedy Company, No. 46 Randolph street, Chicago, absolutely guarantee the use of three boxes to cufe, or refund the money, and the cost, S^-CO, is so trifling as compared with the expensive and unnecessary use of tobacco that tobacco- using husbands have no good excuse to oiler when their wives insist upon their taking No-To-Bac and getting result in the way of pure, sweet breath, wonderful improvement in their mental and physical condition, with a practical revitalization of their nic'o- tized nerves. OUTLOOK FOR TRADE. Tliore IB FromUe of an Increased ^ suinntlon of \Vool.. NEW YORK, May 5.—R, G. Duu & Co.'s Weekly Trade Review to-morrow says: "A point of encouragement is the heavy buying of wool amounting to 11,492,600 pounds for the week at three chief markets, against 4,061,000 last year. In April sales were 21,838,956 pounds, against Hi,998,950 last year. As those sales have for yeara been in steady relation to the, entire consumption of wool it is fair to infer that in &>pite of the stoppage of some important works and in spite of uncertainties as to labor and as to legislation consu nption will continue large for some weeks at least The enormous unsold stock of wheat, which has made a lower average of prices in February, March and April than was ever known in any previous mouth, has depressed May wheat to the lowest point on record, although western receipts were- only l,ObO,7dQ bushels, against 2,488,050 last year, an Atlantic exports 1,14.3,£85 bushels, against 1,518,910 bushels last year. The decline for spot has been slight, with no change for July. Corn yielded a quarter, exports falling suddenly below, while western receipts nearly • doubled'last year's, and pork products were- lower. Cot.ton speculators, who have- seen larger receipts from plantations in April than a year ago, have lost faith and grip with favoring accounts of acreage planted, and the price declined an eighth. The most encouraging sign is the marked decrease in liabilities of firms failing which were only $1,448,144 for the last week of April, and for four weeks $8,722,708 of which $3,733, S!20 were of manufacturing and $4,044,207 of trading concerns. The amount of liabilities at the south was $3,i»19,419, against$3,11] ,033 in eastern and »3.09 I J,- Sft7 in western states, The'fa ; lures this week have been 233 in the United States, against 210 last year, and thirty-five in Canada, against twenty» seven last year.
