Dunning on Tuesday afternoon felt
that the joyous season ol Christmas
was here, and that Santa Claus bad
not forgotten that they were chil
dren in heart, at letist, if not in
years. New books wtre brought
in aud *o:>n the business was finish
ed, aud then the delights which
had been prepared by tb« hostess
awaited the guests in tbe dining
rooui. The table was attractive,
with its holiday appearance. In
tbe center was a veritable chimney
in inniature, and from tbe top of It
hung Christmas ribbons. Each
j guest drew a ribbon and found her
gift to be a tape line The place
cards were Christraa?* bells, and
salted peanuts were served in unique
Santa Claus dishes. There were
salads, stuffed dates, olives, pickles,
cheese straws, saltiues, hot choco

DON'T POISON YOURSELF
That's Tfrhat You May do H You
Take Calomel, Because Cal
omel is a form of Mercury
If you ask a druggist lor bi
chloride of mercury, he will give it
to you in a red labe! bottle marked
POISON. Calomel is also a chlo
ride of mercury, as your doctor will
tell you, and, as everybodo knows,
mercury is a poison.
When you think yon need a dose
of calomel, instead of whipping
your liver up with the mercury it
contains, go to Saunders & Fowden
drug store and pay fifty cent? for a
bottle of Bodson's Liver-Tone, a
pure vegetable liquid that starts the
liver to action ju«t as surely as
colomel does and is perfectly mild
and harmless, with no bad after
effects. No restriction of habit or
diet is necessary.
Dodson's Liver-Tone give such
perfect satisfaction in caring con
stipation and torpid liver that
Saunders & Fowden will give the
money back to any person who trie*
it and docs not find it a perfect aab
i stkuie for calomel.

"Theie art many •oeit-be* today
"for the prevention of" various and
sundry things; bnl the next Legis

at once organizing a 'Society (or

Hon Harry Stubbs, of Martin,
should be made president of this
orgaization, with fnil power to act.
Hon. H. A. Gilliam, of Tarboro,
should be first vice-president; Hon.
Frank Ray, of Macon, should be
