Mr. Turner moved to take up and
consider his resolution to expel himself.
The motion did not prevail.
Mr. Foard moved to take up House
bill 32, bill to abolish the office of State
Geologist, and put the same on its sev
eral readings. The motion prevailed
arid the bill was read the second time.
- Mr.Foard said that in introducing
and urging the passage of the bill now
under consideration he was performing
about the most unpleasant dutv of his
life. Prof. Kerr had been a life-long
friend of his own, and for him as a man
he had the highest regard and esteem.
But in this question the State had an
interest. From every county the Leg
islature was in receipt of petitions pray
ing that the strictest economy be en
forced in all departments of the gov
ernment. That reform was the watch
word of the lwur, That.the Legislature
had cut out much cloth and it was now
time to build the garments. That the
State Geologist's office bad for 26 years
been a rat hole through which $5,000
annually had run out of the public crib.
That the State had never received any
benefit from this expenditure, and that
even if it had ever been useful, it was
now rendered unnecessary by the estab
lishment of the agricultural depart
ment, which does all the good to be de
lved trom the twt departments.- That
it was time to cut out the gore1 from the
body politic, and that .this.wa's a chron-
sore, wmcn since its esiaonsnment
las drained me public ot more than
$120,000 and shows no sign of healing.
That no good results to the State could
result from continuing the office.
Mr. Holt favoredthe bill. The Leg
islature was pledged to retrenchment
and reform, and useless expenditures
must be stopped, fie said that Prof.
Kerr had never made a track in his
county (Johnston) except iossibIValonr
the line of the railroad. .
Messrs. Clarke and Etheridce opposed
the passage ef the bin. '
Mr. McLean favored the idea, but did
not like to turn the whole thing over to
the agricultural department, which he
thought needed investigating itself.
Mx. Lewis , thought, tins a good place
to begin retrenchment. The office was
useless; Prof. 'Kerr had never made a
single visit to his county.
Mr. smith also favored the bill He
thought the agricultural department
could do all that both now dow

MrBrown. 6f YadKiii: favored the

question to lie put. The question then

Dear Sir About ten years ago ray health failed
through the depleting effects of dyspepsia; nearly
a year later I was attacked by typhoid-fever in its
worst form. It settled In my back, and took the
form of a large deep-seated abscess, wbien was
fifteen months in gathering. I had two surgical
operations by the best skill in the State, but receiv
ed no permanent cure. I suffered great pain at
ames, ana was constantly weaaenea Dy a pro ruse

which your remedy is produced.
By what I saw and heard I gained some confi
dence in regeuue.
I commenced taking it soon after, but felt worse
from its effects; still I persevered, and soon felt it
was benefitting me in other respects Yet I did not
see the results I desired till I had taken It faithful
ly for little more than a year, when the difficulty In
the back was cured; and for nine months I have

been cured of my main trouble sooner if I had tak

to its effects.

chronic diseases; and, if they will patiently take
