Postoffice Honey Orders.
The following from the Hous
ton Post is applicable to Bren
ham, according to Postmaster W.
E. Dwyer: "The Houston post
office has been authorized to cash
all money orders, irrespective of
the place of payment named in
such order, (it being, of course,
understood that the identity of
the owner shall be established as
in all other cases), and to cash
any money order drawn upon
such office, irrespective of the
act that the corresponding ad-
vice may not have reached the
office upon which drawn.
This authorization is intended
be so construed (1) that
dentity being established) any
money order may be cashed at
any office of the first and second
classes, whether or not the cor»
responding advice be on file at
such office, and provided the
order is not invalidated by age,
is from alteration, and apparently
regular in all other respects; (2)
the non-receipt of an advice
shall not be cause for delay in
payment for an order presented
at the office upun which it is
This is another decided pro-
gressive step on the part of the
joatoffice department and one
that will obviate the neoessity
for any delay in the payment of
money orders and removes the
last objection to the general use

Few realize what a deep atetad, obstinate diaeaae Catarrh is, regarding it aa a simple inflammation of
the noee and throat, little or no attention ia given it. But, however insignificant it may seem at firat, it
is serious end far-reaching in ite result*. __ . ... .
The foul secretions entering the circulation poison the entire system. The stomach, kidneys—in
fact all the organs—fed the effect of this catarrhal poiaon, and when the lunge are reached ite progress
is rapid and destructive, and finally ends in consumption,
It frequently happen* that the aenae* of hearing and smell are in part or entirely lost, the soft bones of
the noae eaten into and destroyed, causing intense suffering and greatly disfiguring the face. While sprays,
washes and salrea may give temporary relief, no permanent benefit can be expected from such treatment.
catarrh 1$ a constitutional or hood disease,
and far beyond the reach of mere local remedies. Those who rely upon them for a cure lose valuable time, meet with diaap-
pointment and allow the diseaae to take firmer hold. Only a real Wood remedy can reach this troublesome and dangerous disease.
S. S. S cures Catan-h because it first cleanse* and build* up the blood, purifies it, makes it rich and healthy, stimulate* and
puts new life into the sluggish worn-out organa, and thus relieves the system of all poisonous accumulations.
Mrs. Josephine Polhill, of Due We»t, 8. C., write*: " I had Catarrh, which became so deep-
seated <hat 1 was entirely deaf in one ear, aad all inside of my noae, including part of the Done,
sloughed off. When the disease had gone this far the physician gave me up as incurable, t
determined to try 6 8 S as a laat resort, and began to improve at once. It seemed to get at the
seat of the disease, and after a few weeka' treatment i was entirely cured, aad for more than
seven years have bad no sign of the diseaae." **
S. S. S. is made of roota, herb* and barka of wonderful tonical and purifying
properties. It is the only vegetable blood purifier known, and a certain and safe
cure for all blood troubles. Send for our book on Blood and Skin Diseases, and at
the same time write our physicians about your case. They will cheerfully give you
»ny information or advice wanted. We make no charge tor this. SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA. 6A.
nineteenth Annual Maifest.
There was an excellent attend-
ance of the members of the
Brenham Fire Department at the
Maifest mass meeting Tuesday
afternoon, but owing to the fact
that nothing definite has been
heard from Conductor Kilpatrick
in regard to the time that will
suit for the conductor's picnic,
the meeting was not prolific in
Mr. A. W. Watson suggested
the meeting of the State Ginners'
Association at this place on May
1 and 2 and requested the de-
partment to hold the Maifest ss

In opposition to this it was urged
that our band has signed to a
contract to be in Richmond on
these dates. After an informal
discussion of various features of
