tho boy, without any provocation, came
up to her while she was sitting on the
porch of her residence and grabhinjr n
handful of her hair pulled it out by
the roots. Tho defense was entire de
nial of tho offense. It was alleged that
Mrs. Mauley and the mother of tho de
fendant were not on friendly terms and
the charge against the son was
trumped up for tho purpose of getting
even with tho mother. Tho jury re
turned a verdict of not guilty and
placed the costs on the county.

a charge of committing an assault and
battery on the little son of Mrs. Annie

ter, and a number of their boarders.

The Now Remedy for Catarrh Is
A Grand Rapids frontlonmn who
represents a prominent manufueturlnp;
concern travels throunh central and
southern Michigan, relates tho follow
ing rcnttrdlng the new catarrh cure,
"After suffering from cnturrh of the
head, throat und stomach for several
S'ears, I heard of Stuart's Catarrh
T.thlcts quite uccldcntly and like every
thlnff else I Immediately uoubIU a
packages nnd was dccldely surprised at
the immediate relief It afforded me and
still more to Und 11 complete cure after
several week's use.
"I have a little son who shifrs In a
hoy's choir In one of our prominent
churches, and he Is greatly troubled
with hoarseness and throat weakness,
and on my return homo from 11 trip I
Rave hi 111 a few of the tablets one Sun
day morning when ho had complained
of hoarseness. He was delighted with
their effect, removing nil husklness hi
u few minutes and making the voice
clear and strong.
"As the tablets are very pleasant to
the taste, I had no difficulty In pcrsuad
lug him to use them regularly.
"Our fumily physician told us they
were an antiseptic preparation of un
doubted merit and that he himself had
no hesitation in using and recommend
lug Stuart's Catarrh Tablets for any
form of catarrh.
"I have since met many public
speakers and professional singers
who used them constantly. A prom
inent Detroit lawyer told me that
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets kent his
throat In line shape during the
most trying weather, nnd that he had
long since discarded the use of cheap
lozenges and troches oil tho advice of
his physician that they contained- so
much tolu, potash and opium as to
render their use a danger to health.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are large
pleasant tasting lozenges composed of
catarrh antiseptics, like Red Gum,
131ood Hoot, etc., and sold by druggists
everywhere at CO cents for full treat
They act upon the blood and mucous
membrane and I heir composition and
remarkable success has won the ap
proval of physicians, as well as thous
