ing was repaired out of the in- -

In the nfteen years that the
• ourt house has been in use
there have been more than
thirty terms of court held, and
hundreds of violaters of law
have been tried and sent to
prison from this old building.
The taxes that have been
collected by the treasurer while
his office was in this bui ding
have amounted to millions of
dollars. The marriage licenses
issued within its walls have run
up into thousands; hundreds
of couples have been married in
the old office of the probate
judge; and scores of divorces
have been granted in the same
. building. Hundreds of home-
s ead'TS have made their final
proofs there. It has been the
clearing house for county busi-
ness. During the past fifteen
years the old court house has
been the meeting place of most
of the county conventions and
many of the political gather-
ings. Many euccessful politi-
cian* have made their debut in
the little old court room, and
rot a few ambitious ones have
had th’ir aspirations nipped
in tile bud by unappreciative
delegates. '1 here have been
stormy scenes, exciting contests i
and outbursts of enthusiasm j
in some of these gathciings.

and for social functions ******
While we are all glad to
witness the change from the
old building to the new, there
are many who will recall the
memories suggested by the
old—some with pleasure and

Verdict for Dr. Pierce
Ladies* Home Journal.
Sending truth after a lie. It is an old
maxim that "a lie will travel seven
leagues while truth is getting its boots
on,” and no doubt hundreds of thousands
of good people read the unwarranted and
malicious attack upon I)r. II. V. Pierce
and his "Favorite Prescription ” published
In the May (l'.KM) number of the Ladies’____
Home Journal, with its great black dis- J bottb-
plav headings, who never saw the hum-
ble. groveling retraction, with Its incon- j
spicuous heading, published two nmnilis
later. It was boldly charged in the sland-
erous and libelous article that Dr. Pierce’s
Favorite Prescription, for the cure of
woman’s weaknesses and ailments, con-
tained alcohol and other harmful ingredi-
ents. Dr. Pierce promptly brought suit
against the publishers of the Ladies’
Home Journal, for $2()0,000.(X) damages.
Dr. Pierce alleged that Mr. Kok, the
editor, maliciously published the article
containing §tich false and defamatory
