ON THE FARM.
There's many a successful hutinefs
man who sits in hit city office and lets
his mind slip back to his boyhood itejs
on the farm. How good it felt to live !
What an appetite he had! How good
everything tasted I How bound his bleep
was I How eapeily he rose w ith the sun
aud raced with huu through the long
day. And now he's a successful man.
But he can't sleep. He doesn't enjoy
his food. His stomach is weak, his
nerves are shaken, and he no mere rises
with the sun to race eagerly against him.
His vitality is low and now and again
his heart seems to plunge in his breast
as if it would break loos,c. That's the
price he has paid for success.
The mischief of the whole business is
that he buys "tablets" of one sort or
anotner to "aid" lus digestion, and in
dulges in bromide:, ami other nerve
stimulants, just to hold himself together,
nnd wonders why he seems to be getting
The whole trouble with such u man
Kenerally lies in what is called a weak "
.stomach. The food he eats does not
nourish kim because it is only partially
digested and assimilated. No man can
be stronger than his stomach, because it
is in the stomach and allied organs of
digestion and nutrition that strength is
made from the food which is eaten.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery cures diseases of the stomach aud
other organs of digestion and nutrition.
It restores the strength of the body in
the only way strength can le restored,
by food which is perfectly digested and
assimilated, when the diseased stomach
(with its allied organs,) Is cured of dis
ease. It is a blood-making, body-building
medicine, inasmuch as blood 'is made
from food and the body is built up by
blood. It is not a stimulant, containing
neither alcohol or any other narcotic.

It will be noticed that there are two
additional amendments to those de
cided upon by the committee at last
Monday night's meeting. One of these,
the sixth, was mentioned In last Fri
day's Tribune. It will bo noticed that
It gives tho city unlimited power to
Impose and collect a license tax upon
street railway companies and all other
corporations or persons elolng business;
within its limits. Tlio only limit to tho
size if this lax. under the amendment,
Is a limit of reason.
Tho other additional amendment Is
the fourth, which provides that liens
for municipal improvements shall not
be Hied until within six months from
tho date of the completion of the work.
Tho present Uw directs that such liens
imut bo filed within six months nfter
tho continuation of the vlewets' re
port. This has come to be a gieat In
convenience to property owners against
whom these liens are tiled.

ago of the amendatory act. In this let
ter Mr. Davis reported that tho act
mot with tho hearty approval or tho
city omclala of Allegheny, which is
I really a Quay city, and that tho only
thing they didn't oxactly llko was tho
clause requiring tb,o concurrence of the
select council In tho removal by tho
mayor of tho heads of departments.
Messrs. Davis and Itochc will make
no nttempt to secure the opinions ot
the city olllclali of Pittsburg regarding
the act, for tho latter consider the
present Hocond-rlass city charter to
bo tho most pcifcct thing of Its kind
over constructed by mnn. They will,
however, remain in Pittsburg till the
middle of the week, nnd will secure
opinions anl suggestions from a num

COPIES OP THE ACT.
It was decided to havo htm forward
to the Pittsburg and Allegheny boards
of trade copies of the amendatory act,
with a request that It be Immediately

bodies had any chnnges to suggest

Secretary Atherton stated to a. Trib
une mnn thnt this plan might possibly
have tho effect of causing tho board of
trade to abandon for the present Its
Idea of preparing and submitting to
the legislature, a complete act. Ho said
that the amendatory act contnlncel the
provision giving the mayor the power
of appointment, which was exactly the
thing the best element In Pittsburg
