He  was brought across the lake, after an  arduous trip, and placed in thehos-  ipital. ��� For a time it seemed certain  he would recover. His cheerful  andsanguine 'temperament buoyed  himself and others to thinking .all  would be well. Tuesday at lunch  he was cheerful and partook of some  refreshment. About two o'clock he  passed quietly asvay, going to that,  undiscovered country from whose  bourn no.traveler returns.  The 'late Mr. Ridd was born in  'i86o.

In a lower 15. C. paper svd notice
a 1'e-rti-na ads-erlistiueut' headed—
"The Oldest Man in America—
Fscaped the Terrors of Many Winters." The Peruna people have got
hold of. an old fossil somewhere in
the remote parts of Texas, who svas
born -'7 years .ago. He attributes
his 'extreme longevity to the use of
lJe-ru-ua. Think oi'il, good people!
Teruiia, according lo those who
ought to know .something about it.
has been on the market ten or
a dozen years. This old codger
must have been over a hundred
7/heu he discovered the wonderful
curalis-e properties of Vertina. He
says his sight bothers him some.
Perhaps, if he rubbed a little on.his
eyes it might help. We "'would
suggest lo our local druggist that
he lay in <i stock of Peruna. It
might help us all 10 with-jl'ind the
;rigors of the wiuters. Beginning
early on Peruna most of us stand a
chance of living to bo two-hundred.
