A Supper Awaitt d Tmm.
Rev. R M Hoyle and family
arrived Wednesday night from
Shelby to live here, the recent
Methodist conference having as
signed him to the Forest Bill
church. The good ladies of the
church were there that night and
had a nice supper waiting for the
minister and his family.
To accommodate "those who
are partial to the use of atomi
zers in applying liquids into the
nasal passages for catarrhal
troubles, the proprietors prepare
Ely's Liquid Cream Balm. Price
including the spraying tube is 7
cents. Druggists or by mail.
The liquid embodies the medici
