The door of death seemed ready
to open for Murray W. Avers, of
Transit Bridge N. Y , when his
life was wonderfully saved. "I
was in a dreadful condition," he
writes, "my skin was almost yel
low; eyes sunken; tongue coated;
emaciated from losing 40 pounds,
growing weaker daily. Virulent
liver trouble pulling uie down to
death in spite of doctors. Then
that matchless medicine Electric
Bitters cured me. I regained the
40 pounds lost and now am well
and strong." For aH stomach,
liver and kidney troubles they're
supreme. 50c:. at All Druggists.

in other ways. For these favors I

thank the public for personal in

Boy's Corn Clubs
As has already been announced,
the Board of Agriculture at its
December meeting appropriated
SSOO for premiums to Boys' Corn
Club contestants. The contestants
are to be between the* ages of 12
and 17 years * At.y boy becoming
12 years old by June first will be
eligible, and any who is now 17 but
will be 18 not C»ter than August
first will be eligible to enter the
coutest. The rules governing the
contest will be about as they were
last year, except that any boy will
ly permitted to get any person to
break his land for liim. Ido this
because the younger boys are not
heavy enough to handle a large
two horse plow in heavy land, but
after the land is broken each boy
must do the remainder of the woik
himself. If it is known tint any
boy permits another person to do
the work or to help in the work
alter the land is broken until all
cultivation is finished, he will be
ruled out of the content. Onlv fio
worth of commercial feitiliztrs may
he ustd on each acre. The plat of
land must be a full acre. Lessthun
an ace will not lie considered The
plat ot land must not be less than a
ball ac:e in width. Squa r e plats
are pieferred. Only boys living on
the larm can compete tor these
prizes The plat of land must be a
part of some regular field in the
farm, and not a garden spot, a
town lot, or a plat belongiug to
some citv or other corpoiation.
The contestant may use all the
home raised manure he ran get.
Cotton seed, cotton seed meal city
garbage, fish or fish scrap will be
considered as commercial fertilizers.
Avoid Harsh Drugs
Many Cathartics Tend to
Cause Injury to the
It you are subject to constipation,
you should avoid strong drugs and
cathartics. They only give tem
porary relief and their reaction is
harmful and sometimes more annoy
ing than constipation. They in no
way effect a cure and their ten
dency is to weaken the already
} weak organs with which they come
We honestly believe that we
have the best constipation treat
ment ever devised. Our faith in it
is so strong that we sell it on the
positive guarantee that it shall not
cost the user a cent if it does not
give entire satisfaction and com
pletely remedy constipation. This
preparation is called Rexall Order
lies. These are prompt, soothing
and most effective in action. They
are made of a recent chemical dis
covery. Their principal ingredient
is odorless, tasteless and colorless.
Combined with other well known
ingredients, long established for
their usefulness in the treatment of
constipation, it forms a tablet which
is eaten just like candy. Thev may
be taken at cny time, either day or
night, without fear of their causing
any inconvenience whatever They
do not gripe, purge nor cause
nausea. They act without causing
any pafti or excessive looseness of
the bowels. They are ideal for
children, weak, delicate persons
people as well as fof the
most hearty person
They come in two size packages
12 tablets 10 cents, 36 tablets 25
cents. Remember you can obtain

Horse Severely Damaged
The horse drawing the delivery
wagon of M. I. Brown & Company,
became frighttned Monday on
Brogden Street, and ran away
throwing the driver out. The
animal, which is blind but very
spirited, injured itself dangerously,
knocking out an eye, crushing the
frontal Aone aqd cutting one
knee. Death would have been the
humane ending of the beast. It is
supposed to have been hit by a shot
from an air rifle, as that was the
cause of another runaway lasrweek.
The attention of the town
authorities has. been called to the
pernicious habit that the small boy
has of shooting, not only passing
teams but people.

Chance ol Greater Longevity
Dr. WuTing Fang, the former
Cli uese minister to the United
States, who is now on his way to
Europe, said, in making his fare
well address at New York for the
benefit of the press, that American

longevity because they worship the
almighty dollar too much. Here
is hope for more years to the Ameri
can, then, for the dollar is growing
painfully less almighty every day.
