Flag Presentation. — Ever since Mr. and Mrs. Shamburger gave to the M, E. Church a beau tiful service Hag bearing a star for each young man in the service, who either himself or his family is identifled with the church, some of the members have wanted a com panion U. S. Hag 10 go on the walls of the church with ihe other. At their last meeting it was decided ihui ihe Woman's Missionary So- cieiy should give this flag and also small ones ol the allied nations wiih whom our men are lighting, as a iribuie lo and loken of the church's love for them. Most of ihese young men have been hroughi up in the church, were members of the Junior Missionary Socieiy and Sunday school and later communicants of the church Itself, so it was most appropriate that the society should pay them ihis honor. On Sunday last these Hags which had been beautifully draped on the walls, were presen ted to the church. Appropriate hymns were sung, a fervent prayer offered by the pastor when Dr. D. B. Zollicolfer stated that Mrs. 'Jt'ilkins, a member of the society would present the flags and also a beautiful Honor Roll, given by Mrs. S. B Pierce, which bore the names of the seventeen young men in service from the church. After presenting the Hags, Mrs. Wilkins requested Dr. Zollicoffer to call this roll, which with the flags, will be preserved and cherished by church. I he pastor, Mr. Sham burger. feelingly accepted these gifts. Miss Londa Shambut^er recited a beaunful poem. The choir sung ihe Star Spangled Ban ner and so ended a most impres sive service which was followed by the regular sermon by the pastor.

But it does seem to us that things never appeared quite so beautiful. Every tree and bush of the flowery kind never seemed under such a weight of blossoms, nor the air so freigted with sweet perfume. There have been no storms to ruffle a bloom or scar a leaf, and all nature does seem to unfold itself with unusual perfec tion, and despite alt the dark shad ows that crowd themselves into our lives here, as we look abroad we cannot refrain from exclaiming, it is a beautiful world after all I Yet, in its brightest aspect, it is but a counterpart to the world where the flowers eternal bloom in rich ness beyond all conception, and where the glowing light is so efful gent, earth in all its brightness would be but a shadow. Let us live for a better and still more beau tiful and grander world than this, where joys are eternal and the brightness never fades. Will Preach Sunday.—Rev. Stanley White will fill his regular appointment at the Presbyterian church here next Sunday. June 23rd, at 3:30 p. m. The public cordially invited to attend the ser- vice. PERFECT CmOENCC. Weldon People Have Qood Reason For Complete Reliance. Do you know how— To Hnd relief from backache; To correct distressing urinary ills; To assist weak kidneys? Many people in this locality know the way. Have used Doun's Kidney Pills; Have proved their worth in many tests. Here’s testimony from this vi cinity. Miss E. T. Powell, dressmaker, 524 Arlington Sr., Rocky Mount, N. C., says: “1 sufRsred from backaches and pains in the back of my head and between my shoul ders. My kidneys didn’t act right and 1 could get no rest. Doan’s Kidney Pills relieved theachts and pains in my back, corrected the kidney annoyance and did me a great deal of good.” Over three years later Miss Powell said: "I have had no signs of rheumatic pains or any kidney trouble since f endorsed Doan’s Kidney Pills before. I cannot praise Doan's too much for what they have done for me.” Price 60c. at all dealers. Don't simply ask tor a kidney remedy—get Doan’s Kidney Pills —the same that Miaa Powell had.

Thousands of women grow strong In Nature’s way. “Consider the Lilies of the Field, flow They Qrow.’* The life of ihe lily is but a few weeks nr monihs. The life of man Is “ihree score years and ten.” Bui 10 live one's life in i(’s fullness women like the lily, must be nour ished by those same vital elements which nature provides for nourish ing every living thing; and these include the valuable phosphate so often lacking in the usual food we eat today. Argo-Phos- phaie is rich in these wonderful elements. It contains them in con centrated tablet form which is easy to take and quickly assimulated and absorbed inio the system, and from youth 10 old age, builds and re builds body and brain in beautiful harmony with Nature’s perfect plan. “Thai's why” Argo-Phos- phate makes good solid flesh and muscles. Special Notice.—Argo-Pho-s phate contains the Natural phos phates which thousands of physi cians are prescribing daily to build up thin, pale, colorless women to give them rosy checks, red lips and a beautiful complexion. Many cases have been reported where women have increased their weight from 15 to 25 pounds with a few weeks treatment, and any woman who desires a well rounded and developed foriri, should secure from her druggist, this new' drug which is inexpensive and is dis pensed by the W.
