Ur. Page Will Have a Say.
Those who know Henry Ar Page,
of .the Asheboro and Aberdeen
-Railroad, will be interested to
know that he has somethiug good
up his sleeve. No man in North
Carolina is more fearod than Mr.
Page, when he takes up his pen
and begins to write out what he
knows. Before he starts hunting
he sees that his eun is well load
ed. Therefore when the Moore
county railroad man lowers his
fowling piece everybody will sit
up and take notice.
When asked the other day if he
could not add something to the
gayety of nations, Mr. Page said :
"Wait until the legislature ad
journs. I have been hit and hit
hard already and if I were to talk
or write, my enemies might take
another crack at me." These
were not his exact words but they
carry the substance of his re
marks. Charlotte Observer.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is Both
Agreeable and Pleasant.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
has no superior for coughs coTds
and croup, and the fact that it is
pleasant to take and contains no
thing in any way injurious has
made it a favorite with mothers.
Mr. W. S. Pelham, a merchant
of Kirksville, Iowa, says : "For
more than twenty years Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy has been my
leading remedy for all throat
troubles. It is especially success
ful in cases of croup. Children
like it ai-d my customers who have
used it will not take any other."
