A NEW CURE FOR DRINK Fruit as a Substitute For Liquor In the Decemhpr Amiriron Mi. zine, Henry Detmers writes a little article entitled: "A New Cure For Drink."

A suffrage leader stopped a small boy in the street. "Child," she said, "what are you do ing on the street?" "Oh, jes' runnin' 'round," answered the lad. "Did you ever have any moral in struction?' "Any whut?" "Any moral instruction." "Don't know what that is." The suffrage leader was appalled. "Little boy," she said, "go home and tell your mother that Mrs. Jones will speak at the Settlement House, this evening on the subject: "Where Does a Mother's Dutv to Her Children Begin?'"

"Yes, sir." "I envy you these frosty October mornings. Y'ou are astir and get a good appetite for breakfast." "Urn!" "Y'ou sit down to homemade sau sage?" "Urn!" "And good coffee?" "Urn!" "And fried eggs?" "Well." . "And golden brown slapjacks?" "tTm!" "And you rise up refreshed and glad you are alive, isn't that so?" "Mister, do you know why I came to town today?" asked the farmer.

JUST A FEW HOURS If Cross, Feverish, Constipated, Give "California Syrup of Figs." Look at the tongue, mother! If coat ed, it is a sure sign that yiur little one's stomach, liver and bowels need a gentle, thorough cleansing at once. When peevish, cross, listless, pale, doesn't sleep doesn't eat or act natu rally, or is feverish, stomach sour, breath bad; has stomach-ache, sore throat, diarrhoea, full of cold, give a teaspoonful of "California Syrup of Figs," and in a few hours all the foul, constipated waste, undigested food and sour bile moves gently out of its little bowels without griping, and you have a well, playful child again. Y'ou needn't coax children to take this harmless "fruit laxative;" they love its delicious taste, and it always makes them feel splendid. Ask your druggist for a .fifty-cent bottle of "California Syrup of Figs," which has directions for babies, child ren of all ages and for grown-ups plainly on the bottle. Beware of coun terfeits sold here. To be sure you get the genuine, ask to see that it is made by "California Fig Syrup Company." Refuse any ither kind with contempt. DEATH OF LITTLE GAIL PRES NELL On Saturday evening about five o'clock Oct. 17 the death anrel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. James E. Presnell and carried away the sweet spirit of their little 7 year old son Gail . The funeral service was con ducted by Rev. J. E. Thompson of Asheboro alter which the body was laid to rest in the new-made cemetery at West Bend, where a large congre gation had met to pay the last trib ute of respect to the departed. He was kind and effectionate bov. to know him was to love him. We miss the sweet smiles that he gave, we miss thee in the Sunday School, we miss thee everywhere. It is hard to give him up, but still God's will be done not ours. His vacant chair now empty stands, His voice we'll hear no more, Weep not loved ones, for God hath said, , Suffer little children to come unto Me. Gone to rest our little darling, Here no :.-o-; we'll see his face, B'it ve':i r-.et again in heaven, When v.oe run life's rugged race. Gone to rest asleep in Jesus, TJtesped hoe, we'll meet again, And in heaven there'll be no parting. We'll re free :"rom care and pain. Short his stay !iut how we miss him. Stricken hearts alone can say, When we see t'.e'little garments Miss the childis'i face day by day, Gone to rest, he's free from sorrow, With the ange s 'round God's throne, And soon we shall see him, But our hea' ts are sad and lone When we reach the pearly portals Of the city bright and fair, T'lere ven r-oet our little darling; H ? will bid us welcome there. An I with Jesus and the angels we wili dwell forevermore And we'll know our little darling, When we meet on that bright shore. JOSEPHINE CROSS, Asheboro, N. C.

TIME-COST OF SAYING "MR." For more than a hundred years the clerks of the House of Representa tives have called the roll, beginning with A: "Mr. Abercrombie! Mr. Adair Mr. Adamson! Mr. Aiken! Mi. Ainey! Mr. Alexander!" etc., down to the last letter of the alphabet, some hun dreds of names. Last week, without warning, the House reading clerk, Mr. Haltigan, started a reform. He dropped the "Mr." The amazed Congressmen could hardly believe their ears when they heard him begin the roll-call: "Abercrombie! Adair! Adamson! Aik en!" and continue to the end of the list of 435 names. This roll-call consumed only twenty-three minutes, though thirty-five to fortv minutes is the usual time. It was a Saving of at least twelve min utes. There is always one roll-call a day and often twenty or more. The indicated saving is from twelve min utes to four hours in the time of the House.

Common garden sage brewed into a heavy tea, with sulphur and alcohol added, will turn gray, streaked and faded hair beautifully dark and luxuri ant; remove every bit of dandruff, stop ecalp itching and failing hair. Mixing the Sage Tea and Sulphur recipe at home, though, is troublesome. An easier way is to get the ready-to-use tonic, costing about 60 cents a large bottle, at drug stores, known as "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound," thus avoiding a lot of muss. While wispy, gray, faded hair is not sinful, we all desire to retain our youth ful appearance and attractiveness. By darkening your hair with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur, no one can tell, because ii does it eo naturally, so evenly. You just dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair taking one small strand at a time; by morning all gray hairs have disappeared. After another application or two your hair becomes beautifully dark, glossy, soft and luxuriant and you appear yearn younger.
