Port Arthur had all hut fallen, the

that the Russians have been driven
from Itr.sham and that the Japanese
are very close to the southern forti

of Oscar Everett came to my mind

man for the place. Shortly after

He is n graduate of the Univer
sity of North Carolina, carrying
with him from that college many
honors as a scholar and debater.
Since then he has been a teacher
in the graded schools at Ourham,

as a teacher.
Tlrtise who converse with him
will readily find that he is awake
and well up on the political topics
of to-day. As an orator, he can
not lie surpassed in Martin county

A Ctitliul Striii
Many men aud women are con
stantly subjected to what they com
monly term "a continual strain"
because of some financial or tutuily
trouble. It wears and distresses
them I Kith mentally and physically,
affecting their nerves Imdly and
bringing on liver and kidney ail
ments, with the attendant evils ot
constipation, loss of appetite, sleep
lessness, low vitality and despond
ency. They cannot, as a rule, get
rid of this "continual strain," but
they can remedy its health-destroy
ing effects by taking frequent doses
of Green's August Flower. It
tones up the liver, stimulates the
kidneys, insures healthy lxxlily
functions, gives vim and spirit to
one's wliole l>eiug, and eventually
