The Great Democratic Leader
Renominated by Acclama-
At Waco, Texas, on lust Monday,
Hon. Roger Q. Mills was renomi-
; nated and given an indorsement
by his people worthy of such a
I great chieftain. It is estimated
that 40,000 people assembled in
the city to do him honor, and such
enthusiasm was never before wit-
nessed in the state. The Democracy
of the district promise him an in-
crease of 4000 votes at the next elec-
tion and there is very little doubt
that it will be given him.

Mr. N. 8. Sodekson returned
from New York on Wednesday
morning in splendid health and
spirits. Mr. Sodekson tells us
that he will be prepared to create
a stir in the business of Mineola
"this fall, both in the sale of mer-
chandise and the purchase of cot-
Caspary is going to be the leader
this fall in prices. He is now re- i
ceiving an immense stock of dry
goods and clothing.
Some one sent a person in Mas
sachusetta a package of infidel pub-
lications. He responded: "At the
same time, if you have anything
better than the Sermon on the
Mount, and the Parable of the
Prodigal Son, ami that of the Good
Samaratin; or if you have any bet-
tor code of morals than the Ten
Commandments, or anything more
' condoling and beautiful than the
twenty-third Pshun; or, on the
I whole, anything that will make
I this dark world more bright than
I the Bible does; anything that will
throw any more light on the future,
| and reveal to me a father more
merciful and kind than the New
Testament—then send it to me and
I will scatter il broadcast."

chain could bind me, the entrance to
dreamland was guarded by a Cerebus in
the shape of pilesj which made the night
horrible. But that was before I found
the remedy for it in Tabler's Buckeye
Pile Ointment, whifch is a never failing
cure for piles. So you need look no
further for a remedy If you have piles.
Reader, have you ever used '1 abler's

tried it for piles, we are sure you will
heartily agree with us that this prepar-
ation, although good fo* nothing else in
the wide world, is the best remedy ever
offered the public for piles. In fact it
is the only safe, simple and effectual
cure for that disease. Sold by R. T.
