Master Hanse Watts
f The community was shocked ou
on Friday morning to learn of the
, death of Hanse Watts, the vouor
M 'son of Mr. nud Mrs. J. W. Watts,
at their home in East Williamson.
The week previous he had been ill
* with measles but had been able to

suffering with ureamic poison. All

Friday inornirg, December 81 h,
Hanse was born October i6tb,
' 1900, and had always been a deli
cate child yet full of the joyous
' spiiit ot boyhood, devoted to his
family and little boy friends, who
loved birn for his open bartedness
and attractive manner. He was a
member of the fourth grade at
school and closely applied himself
to the studies of his class and his
name has been on the honor roll all
the term. The death of no child
iu town has brought so great sor
sow to the playmates and older
friend 6. The handsome floral de
signs from the school and many
friends attested this fact. His
"shiuiug morning fuce" will be
missed not only by the loved ones
at home in the years to come, but

Lighting Kills Fit
1 Iu 1906 lightning killed only 169
; people in this whole country. One's
. chances of death by lightning are
less than two in a million. The
ctaancc of death from liver, kidney
or stomach trouble is vastly meater
but not if Eltctric Bitters be used,
as Robert of West Bur

gave him up aftei eight months of
suffering from virulent liver trou

then completely cured by Electric

themselves into sickness through

our remedy fails to do this we will

aud we want you to substantiate
them at our risk.
Rexall Orderlies are eaten just
' like candy, ar« particularly prompt
and agreeable in action, may bej
taken at any time, day or night;
do not cause diarrhoea, nausea,
griping, excessive looseness, or
other undesirable effects. They
hive a very mild but positive action
upon the organs with which they
come in contact, apparently action
as a regulative ionic upou the re
laxed muscular coat of the bowel,
thus over coming weakness, and
aiding to restore the bowels to more
vigorous and healthy activity.
Rexall Orde'lles are unsurpassa
ble aud ideal for the use of children
old folks and delicate persons. We
cannot too highly recommend them
to all sufiereis trom any form of
