Icalds It thoroughly after usin&, and glv«
It a sun bath to sweeten It. She knows
that if her churn Is sour It will taint the
butter that is made In It. The stomach Is
a churn. In the stomach and digestive
and nutrltlva tracts are performed pro-
cesses which are almost eiactly like the
churning of butt«r. Is it not apparent
then that If this stomach-churn Is foul It
makes foul all which Is put Into It?
The evil of a foul stomach Is not alone
the bad taste In the mouth and the foul
breath caused by It; but the corruption of
the pure current of blood and the dissem-
ination of disease throughout the body.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
makes the sour and foul stomach sweet.
It does for the stomach what the washing
and sun bath do for thechurn—absolutely
removes every tainting or corrupting ele-
ment. In this way It cures blotches,
pimples, eruptions, scrofulous swellings,
sores, or open eating ulcers and all
humors ordiseases arising from bad blood.

OHIOANS IGNORE HASKELL.
Ottawa O., Sept. 1.—Residents of
this county, of which Ottawa Is the
seat, the former homo of C. N. Has-

that 1 he Putnam County Sentinel
democratic, in a plea for campaign
contributions, requests its readers to
send the money direct to Mr Bryan

One prominent democrat of Ohio
when questioned today said:
"Perhaps the people of Putnam
county know Haskell so thoroughly
that the mention of his name in con-
nection with a plea for Rryanl cons
trlbutlons might have a had effect-
might'. In fact, his unpopularity
might have n tendency to entlrelv
stop contributions that would other-
wise be made. Yes, Haskell is viv-
idly remebered as a former resident
of Putnam county."
