Republican County Convention, A convention of the Republicans o f the Couo- ly of Yates is hereby called to meet at the Court House, In the village of Penn Van. on Saturday, August 24th, 1901, at 2 p. m., for the purpose of making nominations for the office of County Judge, Member of Assembly, Superintendent of the Poor, and Coroner, and for the transaction of such other business as shall properly come before the convention. The Republicans of each town are entitled to be represented by six delegates. It is recommended that primary meetings, for the purpose of electing delegates to said conven­ tion, be held on Saturday, August 17th, 1901, at a p. m. MORRIS F. SHKPPARD, Chairman. W m . H.

E tern a l P r in c ip les, In his speech to the recent Democratic Convention of the State of Virginia, held at Norfolk, after predicting that the Democrats in the next campaign will present a united front on questions which are eternal, State Senator Barksdale de­ clared that “ iu the memories of our past glorious record, free silver, at the ratio of TZie H e s s ian F ly , Malcolm Love, the well-known piano manufacturer, died in Waterloo on Friday last. A Good Roads convention wilhsoon be held in Buffalo, when a large attendance of bicyclists and automobilists is ex­ pected. It is said that in Kansas so great is the wheat crop and the scarcity of gran cries, elevators, and railroad transportation that it is not uncommon for farmers to pile their grain on the ground, awaiting ship­ ment. General MacArthur, late Governor Gen­ eral of the Philippine Islands, arrived in San Francisco on the 18th inst., on the transport Sheridan, after an absence of three years. The General says that the islands are pacified but not tranquilized. In Wheeling W. Va., the strike feeling has reached such a pitch that the strikers are strongly objecting to the acceptance of the offer of Mr. Carnegie of (75,000 for a free library. The rejection would undoubtedly be a great disappointment to Mr. Carnegie. Bryan says that the steel strike involves the right of workingmen to organize. Bryan is nothing if not a demagogue. The strike contest involves no such is­ sues. The right o f workingmen to organ­ ize is unquestioned and unquestionable. But they have no right to force men to join unions or to black-list and prosecute those who prefer to be non-union. A female bather wearing a diaphanous costume of white brilliantine and pink posed on the beach at Narragansett a few days ago, but as the spectators were not devotees of art for art’s sake she was hustled off by the chief of police, and told to leave by way of the rear door of the bath house. Evidently it was be­ lieved that she was getting up-to-date too rapidly. It is said that sheep once chased or wor­ ried by dogs never recover from the fright and dread. It is known to be a fact that if a flock of sheep be once stampeded from beneath a tree by dogs they will never again go under it voluntarily, nor can they be driven or coaxed under It. They will perish in the heat of the sun if there be no other shade, rather than to approach that tree again .—Free P r e s s , As the result of the drouth in the South and West the New York Tribune says fruits and meat stuffs are selling in Chi­ cago at prices from 100 to 800 per cent, higher than they were a year ago. There has not been as great advances in the East, but prices are away up here. Pork has advanced about 50 per cent, at retail, potatoes are away up, and so are most ar­ ticles of food consumption. But, later on, when farmers have things to sell there will probably be the usual slump. When a Chinese bank fails the officials are beheaded. It is not surprising, there­ fore, that very few banks fail in that country. Although most of the bank failures in this country are the result of deliberate and long-continued violations of the banking laws and worse, compara­ tively very few offenders are punished. In the West, however, bank embezzlers generally skip as soon as their crimes be­ come known, and are frequently followed by enraged depositors bearing a rope with a slipping noose in one end* A woman of New Britain, Conn., main­ tains that mosquitos have brains and rea­ soning powers; that It is “ outrageous ” to kill the “ little harmless insects,” and that all that is necessary Is to reason with them. She says : “ If a mosquito is troub­ ling you just speak to him kindly and _eay, ‘Look here, my friend, you leave me alone, and I'll leave you alone.’ Then believe that he won’t bite you! Even if he does his sting won’t hurt. I have done thisefor years, and now enjoy having the pretty little things around and listening to their musical buzz.” 16 to 1, will have an abiding place as an­ other cause nobly fought and hopelessly lost.” Evidently the eloquent Senator used the word “ eternal” in a qualified sense. But most Democrats are inclined to such demagogism. Principles are eternal with them only so long as they seem likely to contribute to success. David B. Fill, now looming up as a Presidential candidate iu 1904, is credited with the assertion that platforms are made to get in on, and thus he undoubtedly voiced tbe sentiments of at least the active and influential leaders of his party. What have been the eternal principles of tbe Democratic party during the past forty years ? What are their eternal prin­ ciples now? When Brvan, a few years ago. consecrated himself everlastingly to the free silver cause, all of his followers shouted “ amen.” But they are rapidly backsliding now on that question, because it has twice failed to serve the supreme purpose—to get iu. And so they have shuffled with the tariff and other ques­ tions, putting them on and off like a coat. They have no abiding eternal convic­ tions, for if they had they would contend for them always—in defeat as well as in victory. If free silver was right last year, it is right this year, and will be right for all time. And the same is true of other questions. In every relation of life the honest man, the true man, is the most faithful to his friends and to cher­ ished prinaiples in the hour of adversity and defeat, for then it is that there is the most need for loyalty and steadfast devo-1 tion. And what is true of men is also true of parties. Eternal principles begotten of honest convictions should govern in storm as well as in sunshine. In times past the Democratic party has contended for slavery, secession, free trade, -free silver, and dishonest money generally. How many of them are the eternal principles in defense of which the party is now begirding itfelf that it may present a united front ? New York is not a great wheat State, its annual crop of that cereal having averaged only a little over 7,000,000 bush­ els during the past five years. And even that small yield has been cut down more than one-half iu the present season by the ravages of the Hessian fly, causing a money loss to farmers of a sum approxi­ mating (3,000,000. Such ia the surpris­ ing statement made In Bulletin 194, just issued by the Cornell Uuivcrsity Agricul­ tural experiment station at Ithaca. This bulletin gives an interesting his­ tory of the Hessian fly from its Introduc­ tion into this country in 1775, supposedly In straw brought over by Hessian troops. Since that time Its attacks on wheat have been constant, but varying in ferocity and destructiveness, the years of greatest damage having been i ?79 i 1817, 1844, 1845, 1846, and 1877. This year will take rank as one of extensive destruction by the pest. Thebulletin describes its man­ ner o f breeding, its methods, habits, and haunts; offers suggestions for resisting its attacks; names several varieties o f wheat that are better able than others to with­ stand its assaults, and gives the results of many observations and experiments. Great importance is attached to late planting, and to co-operation among neighboring farmers in this regard. Sep­ tember 20th to 25th are the dates named for this State, subject to changes on ac­ count of weather conditions which can­ not be foretold. The bulletin also says: “ A method which is often recommended, but unfor­ tunately little practiced, is to sow narrow decoy strips of wheat about September 1st or late in August. Many of the fall brood of flies, emerging from the mid­ summer 'flax-seeds,* will be decoyed to lay their eggs on these strips, and their progeny can be destroyed by plowing un­ der the decoy plants. Do not let the de­ coy strips stand more than four weeks, or but a few days after sowing the main crop.” Tbe twenty-four pages o f the document are filled with facts and suggestions, and have several illustrations. This is one of the most important bulletins yet issued by the experiment station, and farmers will doubtless eagerly avail themselves of its information and advice. — Rochester Democrat. Coral.

Timothy has become the most popular, the best known, and the most profitable hay grass in the United States. This pop­ ularity is due not altogether to its superi­ ority iu nutritive element, but largely to the fact that it makes the standard hay of commerce, with which all other kinds are compared. It is sold In all markets of the country, and its price is quoted in all the commercial journals. In buying this hay one knows precisely what he is paying for. He knows how much to feed and what results to expect from it. It is graded like cotton, tobacco, and wheat, and it Is the only hay that is iu general demand. For this reason, mote than for any other, it is the most profitable, because the sale of it is most certain at the highest prices.- * Partner. ■N. Y . R e c e ived About (9,000. Last week Thomas Dean, of Geneva, who was one time a resident of Dresden, in this County, received, accord.ng to the Geneva Gazette , (2,800 from the estate of his brother William, in Honolulu, Hawaii, making (9,000 from the same source within a year. Forty-five years ago, and five years before Thomas was born, Wil­ liam Dean left the family home in York­ shire, England, saying he was coming to America. That was the last seen of or heard from him by his relatives. In Feb­ ruary, 1896, a letter was received from Honolulu, advising two cousins of the death of William Dean, and adding that he left an estate of (40,000. Thomas Dean, a half brother, was living in Dres­ den, and he was communicated with. He established his identity, and shared the estate with bis mother and three sisters, who still reside in England. T b e S u m m e r o t 1 8 1 6 . A S t r ik e is a W ar. V iolation o f Contract. The employees of a steel company at Joliet, 111 ,, which belongs to the great combine, recently reconsidered its resolu­ tion not to obey the order of the Amalga­ mated Association to go on strike, and by more than the necessary two-thirds vote decided to obey the command, and are now out to the number of 3000 ot more. This action was taken after a long dis­ cussion, in which one of the principal speaker was an officer of the Amalgamated Association, a good speaker, who pleaded elequently in favor of the subsequent action of the men, and threatened that in case it were not taken their union Recently the London Globe said: “ The same spirit and the same motives that have made Tammany in New York a synonym for political obliquity make the National party what it is. Many of those connected with the National party have for their sole object pecuniary gain with the idea of making as much out of job­ bing as possible.** The Nationalists in Parliament denounced the characteriza­ tion as libelous in the extreme, and asked that the publisher and editor of the paper be summoned before the bar of the House and required to apologize or be punished. Tbe resolution was passed unanimously, and the offenders made an abject apology. When you read a newspaper heading of a fight, or a murder, or drowning, or other startling affairs, you don’t have to read very far down the column before you find the parties had been drinking. It may, for the sake of politeness and considera­ tion of friends, be couched in graceful terms, and a drunken spree may be called a “ banquet” or a big drunk may be called a “ social glass,” but all the same it scores another each time for the same old arch enemy of mankind, which has befuddled the brains and blighted the prospects, and blasted the hopes, and damned the souls of the human race ever since the record began.

Worry kills more than work. Tend strictly to your own business. The ontslde world will take care of itself. Whatever betide, the sun will rise and set, the seasons wax and wane, all the same. If you discuss public questions do so in an abstract way. Concrete applications are frequently irri­ tating. If you have opinions, keep them to yourself. They might differ from the opinions of others, and thus cause un­ pleasantness. Better still it is to look wise and keep mum. Then you will pass aa a good fellow, and may be credited with a good deal more intelligence than you possess. There is altogether too much agitation in the world. “ Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty ” is an old saying. It is not up to date. “ Eternal cowardice and demagogism take the cake ” is the modern rendition. A man that has opinions and thecourageof them is a crank. It is the negative man that the world recognizes as a good fellow. Next to him ranks the official who is al­ ways generous with everything except that which is his own. A strict observance of the above rules would hasten the coun­ try toward the millennium or somewhere else. Probably else. charter would be taken away from them, as was the case with the union at South Chicago, which flatly refused to obey the order of President Shaffer, of the Amal­ gamated Association. It is reported that a majority of the older members of the union—men with families— voted to con­ tinue work, but they were overruled by the hot-headed young men. The Amalgamated Association has been greatly cheered by the action of the Joliet men, but there are some features in connection with it that are adversely criticised by right-minded people. The strikers were under contract to work for a certain time at specified wages, the ter­ mination of which contract had not been reached. They entered into the agree­ ment voluntarily, and were morally if not legally bound to respect It. In extenua­ tion of vioating it, it is held by some that when the contract was made the Joliet steel company was not connected with the combine, and that its absorption by the great company cancelled all contracts with the men, as they had no voice in the consolidation. There is little virtue in this contention, but if it were otherwise, it is safe to say that the men would have gone out under any condition. Indeed President Shafler, in his strike order, re­ minded the men that their obligation to the union were made before theircontracts ft and had a stronger binding effect, while it is a well known fact that contracts be­ tween employers and large bodies of men, made through the unions of the lat­ ter, arc one-sided, jug-handled instru­ ments, which, in effect, bind only the former. The latter break them at will ; the former can not without being liable to be mulcted in heavy damages. This is a serious condition, and one that hon­ est working men who belong to unions should labor to remedy. Labor unions should have a legal status, a status of re­ sponsibility which can be enforced in courts of law. When they make a con­ tract they should keep it, and failure to do so should render them liable to reason­ able penalties. It frequently happens that men under.contract, having no griev­ ances of their own as regard wages, hours of work, or anything else, go on what is called a sympathetic strike, thus inflict­ ing heavy losses upon their employers, who are in no degree responsible for the condition which may have begotten the parent strike in a far-off city. Such a going out, in whatever reasonable light it may be viewed, is grossly unjust, and it ought to be an easy matter to convince reasonable workingmen of the fact. A sympatheti clock-out is no worse than a sympathetic strike. But what would be said of a corporation which, under such circumstances, locked out men in violation of a contract with them ? Combines may be inclined to exert unduly their great power. But this ia just as true of labor combines as it is of capi­ tal, and history shows that the former are far more despotic and cruel in their treat­ ment of non-union men than the latter arc iu their relations with union men. But of this cowardly newspapersand demagogues have little to say, for selfish counting- house reasons, but intelligent people arc beginning to comprehend ^the fact, and , sooner or later the government will have to take some notice o f it. There will al­ so be an awakening in regard to the further and more important fact that tbe results of all the contentions between large combines of labor and capital are expensive and oppressive to the middle classes. The strike of the Amalgamated Associ­ ation is running tbe usual course. Al­ ready the strikers, or their sympathizers, are attacking the non-strikers and the lawlessness and disorder will increase from day to day until the strike is lost or won. This is the inevitable and logical out­ come of the situation, for which the strik­ ers are responsible only in so far as they are responsible for the situation itself. Strikers do not throw up their jobs mere­ ly to let other men take them. To tell them that they ought to do so or to ex­ pect them to do so is scarcely philosophi­ cal. Men strike not merely to record a protest, but to accomplish a purpose, and the strikers know, as everyone knows, that they cannot accomplish their pur­ pose by merely so using their own right lo quit work that by using it they shall not injure others. Indeed the Immediate object ,of quitting iwork is so to injure others as to incline them to grant the strikers* demands for the sake of avoid­ ing the injury. If the strikers are not prepared to injure the men who desire to take their vacated places by forcibly de­ nying to them their legal right to work they might as well not strike at all. In­ deed all talk about legal rights in a strike is rather futile. “ Inter arma silent leges,” and a strike is essentially a war. In that fact ( because the civilized world has outgrown private wars and the people will not tolerate them) is to be found the fatally weak point of the strike as a means of settling questions arising between employers and employes.— Roch­ ester Democrat . The above presents the truth concern­ ing strikes in a nut shell—a truth seldom spoken by cowardly sheeis. A strike is a war, and in such wars criminal lawless­ ness in a greater or less degree is most al­ ways one of the main reliances of the strike leaders. “ In the midst of arms the laws are silent” is an old saying, but it never should be true when the arms are not borne by governmental authority. It is generally true, however, concerning strikes, and though the resultant danger may eventually shake the foundations of the government, most people are too sel­ fish, indifferent, cowardly, or ignorant to apply an effective remedy. L a b o r U n ions. When he appeared before the Indus­ trial Commission, Mr. Schwab, president of the steel combine, was asked for his views regarding organized labor. He re­ plied very frankly that his experience as a laborer in the fields and as a worker in the iron mills, and as an employer of labor, had taught him that labor organ­ izations were a bad thing for the capable men. He s a i l : This is what I say, after a careful study of the whole situation : That if I were a workingman—as I was— if I were a work­ ingman now in one of these mills, espe­ cially if managed under the broad policy under which I hope the steel manufac­ ture is administered, I would not want to belong to a labor organization. It puts all men, no matter what their ability, on exactly the same level. If I were a bet­ ter workman—quicker, smarter—than the other man, I would want to reap the ben­ efit. I would not want to be put in the same class with the poorer man, which they must do. If we have 500 men em­ ployed at the same class of labor the wages paid will be the same— must be the same paid to the same class. The level is that of the poorest man in that depart­ ment. As a workingman I would not ad­ vance and I would not be able to show a superior ability over any other if I were in an organization. That is my personal view. Undoubtedly there is truth in what Mr. Schwab says. In unions superior work- en are held down that botches may be above their deserts. Quite natur­ ally, therefore, it happens that inferior workingmen ate the noisiest union men and the most inclined to ceaseless agita­ tion and to favor strikes on the least provocation or no provocation at all. The strike, in fact, In not an American pro­ ceeding. It is an importation, and im­ ported workingmen now control in its use, because of the sad fact that very few American boys are now learning trades. Talking about weather and especially the “ hot spells*' of July of this year, re­ minds many old people of the summer of 1816, which appears to have been no sum­ mer at all as regards temperature. A writer iu a recent issue of the Syracuse H e r a ld thus describes i t : In the springtime so deep was the frost in the ground and so much snow over a large area .that none of the usual farm and garden operations could take .place. Even in May the ground was still frozen, and it was not till June that the snow dis­ appeared. In many localities, in the great lake States, water froze on the 4th of July and in some places there was skating on the ponds. Independence Day observ­ ance was generally held in the churches, which were warmed by blazing log fires, the people wearing mid-winter clothing., It was not till August that there were any ! warm days, and then the corn, which had ! barely survived tbe cold, tasseled so early , that it was useless except for fodder. I There were no products sf field or garden j in that season, and reliance was had upon ! the cereals grown the preceding year. Tbe price of flour ranged from (15 to (18 per barrel. The winters preceding ard following the severe summer were in­ tensely cold, and there being no modern appliances for heating the houses, the people suffered intensely. But the pub­ lic health was never better, and the farm­ ing communities indulged freely in the usual quiltings and log-raisings. L u k e K e n k a Grapes. A Penn Yan correspondent o f the Roch­ ester Democrat writes as follows concern­ ing the condition of grapes in the Lake Keuka region: Tbe condition of the grape crop is a topic that is now nppermost in the minds of a large num­ ber o f people in the Lake Keuka region, and, as usual, it is difficult to get accurate information on the subject, lor the reason that the growers themselves do not always agree, which is due, no doubt, to the fact that a season which is most favorable to the soil and surroundings of one vineyard is often not the best for others. But William N. Wise, of Penn Yan, who handles a large portion of the grapes of Lake Keuka, and who has been in the business for many years, givesit as his opinion, based on interviews with many of the growers o f the various parts o f Lake Leuka that— Fist, the rot has not, up to this time, injured the whole crop 5 per cent., although some vine­ yards are damaged much more than this amount, while a large namber of them have not been in ­ jured at all. Mr. Wise says that many of the growers claim that the fruit is so far advanced that there is little or no danger from further rot this season. Second, that up to this time the indications are that the berries will be large and the fruit gener- erally of good quality. That the yield will be from 10 to 20 per cent, smaller than last year. He says that while it is admitted that there are a fewer number of clus­ ters to the vine this year than last, yet, since the season has not been nearly as dry, there is a probability that the clusters will be considerably larger and heavier than last season. Baskets are more than $1 per thousand lower in price than last year, which will make a saving to the growers of some thousands o f dollars. As to the prospect of good prices no one can yet say, but Mr. Wise says that he has no reason to doubt but that the demand will be good, unless hot wea­ ther, such as we had last season, or frosts such as ruined the crop of 1899, should injure the quality. He reports that inquiries from all parts of the country regarding the quality of the coming grapes were never more numerous. The success or failure of business in that vicin­ ity depends largely on the manner in which the vineyards are cultivated. Leuka Keuka grapes now have the reputation of being the best in the market, largely because they have been packed in a better manner and put up in baskets that were more attractive than those from other localities, audit ought to be the ambition of every grower here to excel in this respect, not only on account of the advantage which he personally derives from obtaining a reputation as a “ fancy packer,” but for the entire Lake Keuka district. Is there auy conceivable reason why Mrs. Carrie Nation should not be cither securely locked up for flagrant breaches of the peace or put under the restraint which is appropriate to lunatics. Cer­ tain it ia that she is an intolerable nuis­ ance and not fit to be at large in this part of the United States, whatever her com­ parative claim to consideration at home may be. Hardly a day passes without an addition to her record of lawless violence, and yet she is permitted to travel about the country as if she were a rational and respectable person. It may be creditable to the forbearance of those whose rights she has insolently invaded that they have so seldom sought redress, and then only by legal process, with one single exception so far as we have observed. The exception occurred the other day aboard an excursion boat on the St. Lawrence River. From many of the™men who were smoking she snatched their cigars away after an im­ pudent tirade; but one man, Eugene Foley, at whose weed she made a sudden grab, retorted with a sound slap on her check. He did not use his fist, but the palm of his band, which was merciful and at the same time sufficient to effect an Immediate improvement in Mrs. Nation’s behavior. Now we hesitate to commend Foley. “ The man that lays his hand upon a wo­ man, save in the way of kindness,” etc., is a poetical dictum pretty securely in­ trenched in the moral consciousness of the civilized world. But may not the lay­ ing of Foley’s hand upon the indurated cheek of Mrs. Nation have been an act of kindness for which the whole public, in­ cluding herself, ought to be grateful ? It is in evidence, at all events, that it pro­ duced a salutary impression upon that dreadful woman and secured to the com­ pany present a grateful relief from her exasperating ministrations. But Foley’s prescription could do nothing more than temporarily alleviate an evil which the law alone can cure.— N . Y . Ttibune. M a n ’ s In b n m a n ity to Man. It is Impossible to form a conception of a meaner and more contemptible speci­ men of humanity than one who deliber­ ately proceeds to prevent a fellow man who, having offended against the law and suffered the penalty therefor, is seeking to live down the wrong that he did, from earning an honest livelihood. Our ex­ cuse fur setting down this truism is tbe desire to apply it to a spec fic case which has come to the notice o f the Journal. Within a year or two a resident o f a neighboring city was discharged from prison after having been incarcerated so many years that the crime of which he was found guilty had been forgotten by the majority of the public. Only the older inhabitants o f the place where the man lived could recall the details of it. And those that could recall them, recalled also their doubts of his guilt, which the jury’s verdict had not dispelled. Those who knew him long ago welcomed him back as a fellow man who at the worst had sinned and suffered, and who, per­ haps, had suffered merely because cir­ cumstances and appearances were against him. The long prison years had left their im­ press upon the man, his health was bro­ ken, the consciousness that the better part of his life was gone rested heavily upon him; nevertheless he determined to make the remainder of his years useful, and sufficiently gainful for his support. He sought employment, and the few friends that remained to him from the dis­ tant past aided him iu bis efforts. A situa­ tion was secured for him, but soon some­ one, prompted by a motive whose nature a normal mind cannot conceive, went to his employer and told that he was an ex­ convict. The result was his discharge. Again and again this happened. Each time when the unfortunate man secured employment there was somebody ready to carry to his employer the story of his disgrace, and each time the employer, fearful that, even though the man could be trusted to do the work given him, the known fact that one who had been in prison was employed by a business con­ cern would injure its interests, tutred him out. And now this man’s only hope is that he may yet find one who will be charita­ ble enough to give him an opportunity to earn an honest livelihood, regardless of the stain upon his life and regardless of the heartless creatures who have been hounding him, and who, if that were pos­ sible, would have driven him among criminals and back to prison .— Albany Journal.

The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure iu all its stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall’s Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure now known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional disease, re­ quires a constitutional treatment. Hall’s Catarrh- Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon the blood and mucous sur­ faces of the system, thereby destroying the foundation of the disease, and giving the patient strength by building up the constitution and assisting nature in doing its work. The proprietors have so much faith in its curative powers that they offer one Hundred Dollars for any case that it falls to cure. Send for list of testimon­ ials. Address, F. J.

Those who contribute to the cause of education do wisely and well. But would it not be wiser and better, suggests the Buffalo Times, if some of this vast amount of money were expended in establishing kindergartens and playgrounds for the children of the poor, instead of lavishing it all upon the “ higher education” of the sons of the rich 1—E x . The above is all right so far as it goes. But it seem to us that rich men, who have more money then they know how to dis­ pose of, should first pay to the govern­ ment an equitable tax on their property. A great many millionaires are only as­ sessed an Insignificant sum, especially on their personal property. Probably not one-twentlcth of such property is taxed. In many cases what they defraud the gov­ ernment out of by reason of non-pay­ ment of taxes amounts to a considerable more than the total amount of their benefactions. Wealthy people, like oth­ ers, should be honest and just before they are generous. D R . E . F . B U T T E R F I E L D Will be at the Brnham House, Penn Yan, Wed­ nesday, Aug. 28. He gives Free Clairvoyant examinations. Here is one of those astonishing results made by Dr. E. F. Butterfield in five weeks’ treatment of P. Maine, a substan­ tial farmer o f N a th Wilna, N. Y. Let him tell his own story: My Dear Doctor— When I came to you five weeks ago I had given up all hope of ever being well. My neighbors had all given me up as even beyond all hope of even relief. Some of them told me to try Dr. Butterfield. I had become very emaciated, was coughing a good deal and severe racking pains in my stomach, a good deal o f sickness of stomach, urine scant and high colored, pain in back of bead. On examination you did not say you could cure me, but that you could help me. After taking your remedies three weeks there has been a wonderful change; my appetite has become splendid, I sleep like a child, and, strange to say, my own neighbors did not know me. They would not believe such a marvelous change could be wrought in three weeks. I nave been splendid ever since, have -had one pull-back and that was when I ate a chicken pie dinner. Pros­ pects seem good that I shall obtain both health and strength. Refer anyone to me. Yours truly, P. M a in e . North Wilua, N.
