It was annexed to Great Bri

the Boor.-. (Dutch settlors) took
up arms against (Ireat Britain
and wero successful in a battle
at M:juba Hill. A treaty of
peace I flowed in which the

Nothing in this world of diver
sified minds seems absolutely
settled and thore aro those wdio
claim, by word, and many more
by practical examplo, that cig
arettes do not hurt one. Some
young mon who boar the very
marks of injury are unapproach
able with hotter counsels that
would fain save thorn, from their
folly. They hurl you off by
telling you that they have
smoked the cigarette, for years
without injury. They are bound
as securely as the habitual
liquor drinkor and loving ones
stand as powerless to rescue
them. Many of the physicians
sound the note of warning and
the news of the day hold up in
stances before their eyes. The
following from the SaHsbury
Sun of the L'jLh is one more
from near home and should have
its weight :
"Ernest Jenkins, a 10-year-old
boy, of Gold Hill, died thi:;
morning at 4 o'clock after:: brief
illness. He was taken with a
chill Friday. He was like a rav

quired several men to hold him
in bed. His physician said death
was caused by excessive cigar

A Philadelphia dispatch of the

The (::tt.oi) Spinners' Asso

mg d's ily meetings since last Fri
day, today adopted a now scale
of'pnco.--, as follows: Two-ply

warps from 1 cent to lj cents less
than this scale; two-ply skein, J
less than thissoale ; single skein,
1 cent Jess than this scale.
The association also adopted a
resolution that "as manufactur
ers of cotton yarns, we profess
to be in a position to advise our
members to decline all orders
which do not conform to the
scale of prices set forth herein."
This was signed by sixteen
firms from North Carolina. It
was stated that New England
manufacturers would also adopt
the new7 scale, and that unless
the prices could be obtained all
the mills would closo down.

Drying preparations simply
develop dry catarrh; they dry up
the secretions which adhere to
the membrane and decompose,
causing a far more serious trou
ble than the ordinary form of
catarrh. Avoid all drying in
halants and use that which
cleanses, soothes and heals. Ely's
Cream Balm is such a remedy
and will cure catarrh or cold in
the head easily and pleasantly.
