Keep Your Blood Pure.
No one can lie Loppy, liglit-hearteil and
healthy with a body full of blood that can
not do its duty to every part because of its
impurity; thereiora, the first and most im
portant work in hand is to purify the blood
sothut every orsn will get the full benefit
of a healthy circulation. Thre is no remedy
we know of so good as that old family
remedy, Brsndreth's Pills. Each pill con
tains one grain of the solid extract of sarsa
pnrilla blended with two grains of a com
bination of pure and mild vegetable pro
ducts, making it a blood purifier unexcelled
in character. One or two taken every night
for a while will produce surprising results.
Braudruth's Pills have been in use for
over a century and are Bold in every drug
and medicine store, either plain or sugar
Notice in hereby given that application will be
made tothe Legislature at tut pretteut wxstcm, to

Schnapps Tobacco is Made ENTIRELY from Flue Cured
Tobacco Grown in the Piedmont Country.
The Imitation Brands Have Schnapps
Quality Only On the Outside
Of the Plug
Hundreds of imitation brands are
on sale that look like Schnapps to
bacco. The outside of the imitation
plugs of tobacco is flue cured the same
as Schnapps, but the inside is filled
with cheap, flimsy, heavily sweetened
air cured tobacco. One chew of
Schnapps will satisfy tobacco hunger
longer than two chews of such to
bacco. The color, size and shape
of the tags, plugs and packages of
certain imitation brands of tobacco
have been made so much like
Schnapps that they have often been
accepted by buyers under the belief
that they were getting Schnapps.
Sufficient proof has been secured
to establish the fact that certain
brands are infringements and in vio
lation of the trade mark laws, yet the
trade will continue to be imposed
upon by these infringers until the suit
already entered and now pending to
protect Schnapps is decided. A
great many of these imitations are
