The agricultural States repre-

showed their friendliness for the
agricultural States of the West in
a signal manner on die binding

of the South and voted solidly to
put up the taxes on cotton bag-

the Southern farming States only
half an hour later rallied to the
support of the Western Republi-

The Senators from the agricult-
ural Slates of the South fully rec-
ognize the needs and rights of
the Western farmers, and though
the alleged representatives of the
West had only a few minutes be-
fore followed the Northeast and
voted to increase the burdens on
the struggling Southern farmer,
the South rose above sectional
I prejudice and polled its full
[strength for the West, where oth-
erwise the West would have been
subjected by the Plntopratic votes
of the Northeast.
The vote is of the highest sig-
nificance. The South is ready to
vote for the real interests of the
West whenever the West gives ii
the opportunity, and when the ag-
ricultural States of the two sec-
tions combine, as they did on this
vote, the Plutocratic States can-
not oppress agriculture. If West-
ern farmers are relieved from the
tax which fosters the twine trust
they will owe it to the votes oYlhe
representatives of Southern form-
ers. There is the record. Read
and remember it. It means that
the farmers, West and South, will
get together in spite of all the
Northeastern corporations eau do
to keep them apart.

strength, impaired digestion and
assimilation are the marks of de-

the grand vitalizer and restraining

Beginning at the fountain head,
the stomach, the Bitters remedies
its inefficiency, corrects its errors,
and sets it vigorously at work.
The digestive organ is thus ena-
bled to thoroughly separate from
the food its nutritive principles,
which the blood assimilating, is
efitfehed. Thus is the system
nourished, and being nourished,
strengthened and abnormal waste
of its tissues stayed. Appetite,
the power to rest well, a regular
habit are also re-established, and

more in their natural aud health-

That moment is when you prove,

The reason for their faith is this:
Dr. Sage's remedy has proved it-
self the right cure for ninety-nine
out of one hundred cases of Ca-

Dispensary Medical Association
can afford to take the risk of you

take the risk ? If so, the rest is
easy. You pay your druggist 50

you’re wanting the $500 you’ll get
something better—a cure!

Dallas News. rn-t
It certainly was an appropriate
idea to summon, as if with a magi-
cian's wand, the selected beauty
of Texas and mass it .in that as-
sembly of incomparable loveliness
that will be witnessed at the fair
next month. The request prefer-
red by the fair directory) to our
senators aud congressmen and to
the representatives in the Texas
legislature to select from the ladies
oU their respective districts the
fairest and loveliest maidens to
grace the great ball and aid in
welcoming Mrs. Grover Cleveland
and her distinguished husband, has
met with a universal and enthusi-
astic response and it is confidently
expected that over 400 of the very
pick and choice of Texan beauties
will honor Dallas on this special
occasion. Such a sight will indeed
be most entrancing and one never
witnessed before in the history of
the republic. At no period in the
life of the country has a great state
assembled its, fair daughters, chos-
en especially for their beauty, on
any like occasion nor extended
! such a unique and distinguished
courtesy to a welcomed guest.
.Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland must feel
the great honor that such a greet-
ing will confer and xfie press of
the world will doubtless emphasize
it by adequate descriptions of the
notable event. To gaze down from
the surrounding galleries of the
great music hall upon such a scene
would be worth a trip half around
the world to witness. ‘ If it were
possible to perpetuate this scene
