Stanly is Ah Right.
The people of this State will
have the opportunity on Tuesday,
the 26th of May, o rising up m
air their might and voting against
the manufacture and sale of in
toxicating liquors. No question
in years has become so promineut
as this, and sections all over the
country have been fast throwing
off tthe galling yoke. That the
drink habit is an evil that attacks
more than the individual and his
private family, h' c been long con
ceded. It is a meuaae to the pub
lic in many ways, and the great
railroads and business heads of
the country are refusing to -employ
any man with the habit. The evil
is far-reaching, and the people of
this State should welcome the call
and the opportunity to do battle
in a righteous cause. The ques
tion is not one of politics or creed,
but a matter of conscience with
the individual. We are glad that
it is so, as the victory that will
surely come in May is one that
the people as a whole need to feel
as theirs. May the voice of Stanly
be heard in positive and thunder
ous tones. Stanly Enterprise.
Opinions and Reasons Therefor, , A,
A man may entertain any opin
ion that pleases him so long as he
does not trouble his neighbors
with it; but when he begins to
give his reasons for it, it becomes
quite another matter. By itself,
an opinion is, quite unassailable ;
it is private property. t It may be
wrong, but no matter ; so long as
a man hoards in the depths of his
, own bosom it is nobody's con
cern he is resposible to nothing
but his conscience ; but when he
begins a campaign in the hope of
convincing others that he is right,
or with the intention of making
converts, and announces it-with a
trumpet tongue, his troubles be
gin. vHe is then compelled to
give his reasons, "and, since the
world began, reas as have been
known to be awkward and entan
gling things. Th y fall under
the examination of acute minds,
and there is no hop for them if
they do not appeti to the common-sense
of tbo public. Joel

-This' is the season for coughs

Salisbury, people a member of The
T. W. Grimes Drug Co. tells them
the best means for a cure.
He says: '-Take Vinol, our real
cod liver preparation without oil.
It does not upset the stomach like
other syrups, and it is much more
effective. Vinol is not a pallia
tive but a curative," "
This is because Vinol contains
in a highly concentrated form all
of -the healing, strength creating
and medicinal elements of cod
liver oil actually taken from fresh
cods' livers, with all the useless,
nauseating oil eliminated and
tonic iron added. It tastes fine,
and cannot upset the weakest
stomach, hence its wonderful
power to cure.

At times when you don't feel
just right, when you have a bad
stomach, take something right
away that will assist digestion ;
not something; that will stimulate
for a time but something that
will positively do the very work
that the stomach" performs uuder
ordinary and normal conditions,
something that will make the food
digest. To do this you must take
a natural digeetant like Kodol for
Dyspepsia. Kodol is a scientific
preparation of vegetable acids
with natural digestants and con
tains the same juices found in a
healthy stomach. Each dose will
digest more than 8,000 grains of
good food. It iB sure to afford
prompt relief ; it digests what you
eat and is pleasant to take. Sold
