Some Got Away.
Several of tbe excursionists
from eastern states to tbe Olustee

seeing the towers and turrets and
gilded domes of Altns in the dis-
tance, decided to ascertain what

little hamlet in which they had

jrected bv D. R. Wade, of Dallas, j they hired rigs and drove over,
_ * ho has already arrived, and who j despite the protests of immigra-
** sishes the assistance of the sing-1 tinn agents. Among them «ere:

A Touching Story
is tbe saving from death, of tbe
baby girl of Geo. A. Eyler, Cum-
berland, Md. He writes: "At
the age of 11 months our little
girl was in declining health with
serious throat trouble, and two
physicians gave her up. We were
almost in despair, when we re-
solved to try Dr. King's New Dis-
covery for consumption, coughs
aud colds. The first bottle gave
relief: aud after taking four bot-
tles she *as cured, aud is now in
perfect health."* Never fails to
