Pe-ru-na Testimonials.
When any man or woman, out of pure gratitude, writes us a letter, com-
menting upon the benefits he has received from the use of Perunaa, when
he does this without any solicitation or remuneration of any sort, and fur-
nishes us a recent photograph, so that his identity and responsibility in
the matter is beyond question, then do we consider a testimonial available
for our advertising purposes.
We are at the present time publishing many hundreds of testimonials.
We give the name and address in full of each one of these people.
We have no use for, nor would we publish for any sum of money, a fraudu-
lent testimonial. To do such a thing would be dishonorable from a moral
standpoint, and commercial suicide from a business standpoint.

Tonic and Appetizer.
W. H. Parsons is ex-State Senator and
ex-Special Judge of the Supreme Court
of Texas, also Brigadier General in Con-
federate Army. In a recent letter from
925 H St., N. W., Washington, D.C., this
prominent gentleman says:
"Upon the recommendation of per-
sonal friends and many strong testimo-
nials of the efficacy of Peruna in the
treatment of the numerous symptoms of
the grip, with which I have been affect-
ed for four months past, I have been in-
duced to undergo a treatment of this
justly celebrated formula.
"1 feel a decided change for the better
after using it only one week. It is es-
pecially good in toning up the stomach,
and has a decided effect upon my appe-
tite. I therefore feel much encouraired
that I am on the road to complete res-

"My numerous friends in Texas, where
I have had the honor to command a
brigade of her Veteran Cavalry, in a
four-year war, may accept this volun-
tary testimonial to the merit of Peruna1
from a sense of obligation for its won-
derful efficacy."
Appetite and Digestion Poor.
Mr. Charles Schweihs, Lexington,
Texas, writes:
"I suffered from catarrh of the liver.
What I ate disagreed with me. I was
weak and feverish. 1 slept very poorly,
had rush of blood to the head. I was
very despondent, and took no pleas-
ure in anything. My appetite was
changeable, digestion poor.
"Your medicine made me well again,
for which I express to you my heartfelt
thanks. I firmly believe that for all who
suffer in like manner it would have the
same good effect."




Invigorating Tonic.

Disordered Liver, Constipati.
Mr. W.O. Clement, Assistant Manager
"Rome Georgian," Rome, Ga., write.:
"It affords me pleasure to voluntarily
testify to the true merits of your won-
derful Peruna.
"I have for several years been suffering
from disordered liver and chronic con-
stipation, for which I had tried a great
many remedies, but none did me any
good. My whole system was so thorough-
ly overcome that I was easy tocatch cold
and the consequence was that a chronic
case of catarrh was fast developing.
"I have been taking Peruna for six
weeks and am happy to say that it has
had the desired effect. My liver is ia
good condition, constipation disap-
peared, and 1 no longer feel any of the
symptoms of catarrh.
"In truth I am now in better health
and feel stronger than I have for several
years and it is all due to the wonderful
effects of Peruna."
Systemic Catarrh.
Mr. Moses F. Merrill, Route 8, ('olum-
bus, Kansas, writes:
"The improvement in my health has
been wonderful. My bowels are regular
as clock-work. I can now eat like other
people and my victuals digest com-
pletely. I think I am cured of systemlc
"It hap been a hard fight, but I came
out victor. Many thanks for your kind
counsel and nianagument.'"

Mr. 0. 0. Stealy writes to the Cour-
ier Journal that Mr. William Jen-
nings Bryan will be nominated at the
Denver convention on the first bal-
lot; that nothing can now be inter-
posed to prevent it. The Courier-
Journal, which has opposed Mr. Bry-
an's nomination as unwise, now ad-
mits that his nomination is a fore-
gone conclusion.
The Courier-Journal and other dem-
ocratic newspapers that have been
unfavorable to Mr. Bryan's nomina-
tion. are strong in their admiration of
the loftiness of his character, his rec-
titude, his loyalty, his patriotism.
Mr. Bryan stands in the same atti-
tude as did Martin Van Buren with
the democrats and Henry ('lay with
the whigs years ago, and Mr. Blainme
with the republicans in recent times.
Henry Clay was the very idol of
the whigs when that party was in
power, and yet when he received the
unanimous nomination of his party he
was defeated at the polls by a then
obscure democrat. No man was so
beloved as was Mr. Blaine by his par-
ty, yet he failed to reach the WVhite
House, and died a broken-hearted
Mr. Bryan. in 1896, was not only the
nominee of the democratic party but
was likewise the nominee of the pop-
ulist party, and it is estimated that
a million populists voted for him in
the general election.
This year Mr. Thomas E. Watson
Is the nominee of the populist party
and is keenly hostile to Mr. Bryan
and is trying to array every populist
vote against him.
In. 1896 Mr. William Randolph
Hearst, with his great newspapers,
was then a bright particular star in
the democratic firmament, and was en-
thusiastic In his support of Mr. Bry-
an, and for every dollar contributed
by all the other democrats in the
United States to the national cam-
paign fund was duplicated by him.
This year Mr. Hearst is hostile to Mr.
Bryan, and is organizing a party of
his own, and is sending his emissar-
ies into the various states on a mis-
sion of this character. Mr. John Tem-
ple Graves is now stumping the state
of North. Carolina in the interest of
the Independence League party.
Mr. Bryan has gone up and down
the land vigorously praising Mr.
Roosevelt and proclaiming that he is
as good a democrat as he himself is.
and, indeed, has stolen his (Bryan's)
clothes and is exhibiting himself to
the country arrayed in them.
Now, if Mr. Roosevelt is nominated,
or Mr. Taft, his personal representa-
tive, the ultra republicans will not
leave their own party to vote for Mr.
Bryan when Mr. Bryan has proclaim-
ed that the policies they stand for
are as thoroughly democratic and
meet the needs of our country as
much as those he himself stands for.

and of course the conservative repub-
licans are not expected to turn their
backs on their own party and whip
over to the side of Mr. Bryan just for
instance, so just where those who so
persistently urge Mr. Bryan's nomina-
tion expect to get additional votes
outside the rock-ribbed and( iron-
bound members of his own party is
unknown to us.

A great deal is being said about
Mrs. Jefferson B. Browne accompany-
ing her husband on his campailgrmin?-
tours and what a tremendous ailvan-

tMe temple, and his riding into Jeru-
saalem astride an ass, despite our ef-
forts to the contrary, lowered our ex-
altation of feeling and brought the
scenes and performances down to the
level of everyday things.
And yet the pictures, no doubt, are
true to the things described, for after
all. Christ was a man as other men.
and took upon himself their weak-
nesses and infirmities. He was born
as other children are born; he ate,
and dreamed, and slept, and became
fatigued, as other men, and eventual-
ly died; but we are wont to throw
around these things a halo not of the
earth earthy, and the vividness and
naturalness of the moving pictures
make them altogether too life-like.
We were struck also with, the small-
ness of the stream the river Jordan
presented, and, like Editor Tharpe, we
thought it must be a mistake, so we
began reading up on the subject, and
whatever it may have been in ancient
times, it is now described by travelers
as not the majestic stream that it was
in the days of Joshua; and then, too,
the season of the year makes a big
difference in its appearance. Dr. Wat-
son says that the Jordan was visited
some time early in the 30's by Dr.
Maundrell, who was disconcerted by
the shallowness of the stream at the
time of the year that he expected to
see it overflowing its banks, and his
embarrassment seems to have in-
creased when he contemplated the
double margin within which it flowed.
Dr. Pococke observed that it had an
inner and an outer bank and says
that it rarely overflows its inner
banks. Volney also says that it has
two banks. That the inner bank
marks the ordinary height of the
streamrn: the outer its ancient eleva-
tion during the rainy season.
So. after all. the picture exhihitied
in the "Pas-ion Pny'" ;Tiay have b< en

ancient mode of baptism, and final that
Dr. Adam Clarke, Knox. anIl a ar:at
nany othliers, who devoted a crrcat deal
of learning and investigation as to the
proper mode of baptism, arrived at no
definite conclusion, and said after all
that it was not the mode but the
thing typified that was efficacious.
Dr. Clarke says that baptism was
an ancient rite of the Hebrews, and
was practiced as early as was circum-

happened to your immediate predle-
cessor, who neglected his official du-
ties in a like mad chase for the sena-
torship four years ago.-Tampa News.


The moving picture business is a
thriving one now all over the coun-
try. For five cents in the north and
10 cents in the south, a person can
be delightfully and sometimes Instruc-
tively etertained for an hour. Many of
the exhibits are worthy, and some
very questionable. There is one ex-
hibit which is more largely attended
and commented upon than any other.
It is termed "The Passion Play," and
is a representation of the life of
Christ from the manger to the ascen-
Many question whether it is right
to visit it or not, as it misrepresents
some of the acts of Christ's life, par-
ticularly one event, namely, the bap-
tism. This it falsifies by depicting
the Jordan river as a tiny stream
and John pouring water upon the head
of Jesus.
In showing the Jordan as no more
than a small branch it falsifies facts
and presumes upon the ignorance of
the public. The truth is God had to
dam up its waters (Joshua 3:16) be-
fore Israel could pass over it; Pres-
byterian Talmage immersed in it, as
is recorded in the history of his lift,
and in every state there are many
who have looked ip',n this no insig-
nificant strf am.

off. and, as a rule, the man who has
the business ability to control money
large enough hasn't the training of
an editor, and has to hire 1.9jple to
write editorials for him.
The editor who has kept himself
alert with what is going on is so busy
that he doesn't accumulate money.
Great city newspapers are owned by
some and edited by others. The man
who is not permitted to put his con-
science in every line that is written
is not the ideal editor. I believe that
the ideal editor is the editor who
owns his own paper and says what
he himself believes.-William J. Bry-

The governor owes a constitutional
duty to the people who elected him.
This constitutional duty requires him
to select the men best fitted for ad-
ministering the people's offices. He
owes only a PARTY DUTY to the pri-
mary, and his constitutional duty
should always rise superior to his
party duty. If the primary selections
are men whom he can appoint with-
out violence to his constitutional du-
ty, the duty he owes to his party im-
pels him to appoint them; but when-
ever they are not, he should disre-
gard the primary.-Tallahassee Sun.
It may just as well be argued that
the legislature has a constitutional, as
well as a party duty to perform, and
the constitutional duty should be par-
amount. If the primary selection is
not what a majority of the members
of the legislature think is best fitted
to represent Florida in the senate of
the United States, then, according to
Editor L'Engle's reasoning, it is their
solenin duty to disrezardl the primary
ami select sonie other man )better fit-
ted to serve the people in this office.

ereign pow er is lodged in the hands of
the people, anl if their jiidgm,.nt is

fives it ou ght to hoe good in the selee-
tion of the lower ones.

Tomn Watson seems to h t'l' the )i'p-
tilist as much under his control as
Bryan has the democratic party. But
there is one difference between them.
Watson does not think Roosevelt the
demi-god that Bryan does.

We know the dog as policeman In
Central Europe; as life-saver he has
worked in the Alps for a thousand
years. But the dog regularly enlisted
in every great army of the world-
whether in the Red Cross department,
or as scout and despatch bearer-is
surely something of a novelty.
In the Franco-Prussian war, out of
129,000 casualties, 13,000 were return-
ed as "missing;" and who shall say
what agonies those unfortunates suff-
ered? Every war of the future, how-
ever, will see the dog mitigating its
The ambulance dog is entirely in-
dependent of artificial light, and relies
only on his extraordinary power of
scent. Last year, during the great
Austrain maneuvers, two hundred men
were left lying on the field to repre-
sent the wounded; and the stretcher
bearers working against time, over-
looked thirty-eight of these. Within
twenty minutes the Viennese dogs had
discovered them all.
Each dog carries about his neck a
flask containing brandy or soup and
also a roll of bandages. The wound-
ed man, having made what use he can
of this relief, gives the dog his cap or
belt, and the intelligent creature at
once races off with it to the ambu-
lance attendants, whom he conducts
to the rescue with all speed.
Marvelous stories are told of the
dogs which the Allied troops took
with them to China for the suppress-
ion of the Boxer rebellion.
The French in Algeria have also
used dogs in this way In their warfare
with the Arabs. One canine favorite
with the Oran garrison has just been
raised to the rank of "sergeant" on ac-
count of his sagacity, for he can be
used indifferently as scout, sentry, dis-
patch bearer or seeker for the woun-
ded on the battlefield. He is a Rus-
sian borzoi. Other dogs in use by
different armies are the shepherd dog
the Danish boarhound, the bloodhound
and crosses of these breeds.

Tallahassee. Fla.. April 9, 1908.
To the Democratic Voters of Florida:
Last June I gave out the statement
that I would offer for the democratic
momlnatlon for the office of governor
in the primaries to b eheld in 19408.
At that time I was Impelled to do
so more from the fact that it appear-
ed to me that the principles which I
have always advocated and stood for
would not be presented for the consid-
eration of the voter, rather than from
my desire to satisfy my personal am-
bttos. At that time I had a pledged
uppuilt that I felt proud of and of
which I am now proud. At no time
last summer did I feel discouraged at
my prospects of success, but a few
months after my announcement I saw
that certain policies which I desired
to see carried to a successful conclu-
sion by the railroad commission.
could not be consummated before I
would necessarily have to leave the
board, and while I did not feel that
my presence on the board was essen-
tial to the final result, I did feel that
I would like to participate in this

honesty and integrity, and knowing
that he stood as nearly as any man
in the state of Florida for the prin-
ciples of a' "government of the peo-
ple, for the people and by the people."
I told him if he would make the race
I would not be a candidate, but would
support him.
I had hoped that my position was
understood in this matter, but from
some comments in the press and the
number of inquiries which I am still
receiving about my intention to run.
I feel that it is a duty I owe my
friends to make this formal announce-
ment that I do not intend to be a can-
didate in the primaries this year.
I desire to thank my friends for
the support promised me had I re-
mained a candidate, and while I do
not assume to dictate to any man. I
wish to say that I believe the inter-
ests of the people will best be serv-
ed by the election of Mir Stockton to
the office of governor.
Each person desiring to have his
name printed on the primary election
ballots, as a candidate for any coun-
ty office, including members of the
legislature, must file with the chair-
man of the county democratic execu-
tive committee on. or before, the O0th
day of April. 19o8. his notice of can-
didacy. and application to have his
name so printed, accompanied with a
sum of money fixed by the county
committee for such office, or fraction-
al part, according to the number of
candidates for such office, as per fol-
lowing schedule of fees:

"One Touch of Nature
Whole World



When a rooster finds a big fat worm
he calls all the hens in the farm yard
to come and share it. A similar trait
of human nature is to be observed
when a man discovers something ex-
ceptionally good-he wants all his
friends and neighbors to share the
benefits of his discovery. This is the
touch of nature that makes the whole
world kin. This explains why people
who have been cured by Chamber-
lain's Cough Remedy write letters to
the manufacturers for publication,
that others similarly ailing may also
use it and obtain relief. Behind every
one of these letters is a warm hearted
wish of the writer to be of use to
someone else. This remedy is for sale
