A MYSTERY EXPLAINED.
The papers contain frequent
notices of rich, pretty and educat-
ed girls eloping with negroes,
tramps and coachmen. The well,
known specialist, Dr. Franklin
Miles says all such girls are
more or less hysterical, ner
vous, very impulsive, unbal-
anced; usually subject to head-
ache, neuralgia, sleeplessness,
immoderate crying or laughing.
These show a weak nervous sys-
tem for whicn there is no remedy
euual to Restorative Nervine.

If there was no other reason,

There is one significant fact
about the pending gubernatorial
contest: All the vicious elements
in the state are fighting Hogg.
Every trust, every rich corpora-
