ALMOST A MIRACLE.
One of the most startling
1 changes ever seen in any man,
according to W. B. Holscaw,
Clarendon, Tex., was effected
years ago in his brother. "He
had such a dreadful cough," he
writes, "that all our family
thought he was going into con
sumption, but he began to use
Dr. King's New Discovery, and
was completely cured by ten bot
tles. Now he is sound and well
and weighs 218 pounds. For
many years our family has used
this wonderful remedy for Coughs
and Colds with excellent results.''

Engineer Brown and Assistants At i
Meadows Having Located a Per- j
manent Route lor the Highway
From the Buck Island Bridge
Not Much Trouble Over Rights
Engineer Brown, of the North
Carolina Geological and Knocomic
Survey, who is locating the route
for the sand-clay turnpike from
I'.uek Island bridge to the Forsyth
county line, is now working in
the Meadows section. He will,
probably reach Walnut Cove
Friday and will doubtless finish
the survey at the county line by
Saturday, or sooner.
The permanent route for the
highway has been located as far
south from the northern terminus
as Meadows. But little trouble has
been encountered in the right of
way, large landowners like A. .J.
Fair, John M. Calloway, .J. Spot
Taylor. I >rs. J. Walter Neal, J.
William Neal, J. M. Neal, and
others offering freely the rftute
over their property.
It is now believed by every
well informed person that the
landowner who is damaged most
by the turnpike is the one whom
the r imsses. Property along
a scieni i: c highway is worth
from t'.vo to twenty times more
than pro; rt\ isolated on a bad
road. Kverybody likes t.i li\t on
the frc-'it. Bark lots* or land
that is (lillieult to reach is great
ly less desirable than property
which has a frontage on a tho
roughfare. It is the policy of
the turnpike company to pay no
damages to any person, which
would be a troublesome preced
ent, as to pay one person would
mean chat others would have to
be paid, and the beginning of this
policy would mean a costly un
dertaking. The men who are
putting their money up for the
building of the turnpike are do
ing so on the supposition and
with the understanding that the
people want the road, and not
that they would impede its com
ing with any stumbling blocks.
Should the present route be im
possible to be secured, a new
route will at once be laid out in a
different direction. The Re
porter will print next week a
list of those who have given the
right of way, together with the
distance over their lands which
the road traverses.
It is hoped that the survey may
be completed, the charter secur
ed, the balance of the money
raised and work started by the
first of June. Work will begin
probably at the county line or at
Walnut Cove, in order that the
necessary machinery may be
transported easily as it may te
needed on the road.

New Union Store Opens.
The new Farmers' Union store
