condition was doubtless almost
hopeless from the beginning of

informed of the real situation.

It is true that he was maligned
and slandered by many of those
who should have been his most
enthusiastic friends, but the grand

believed to be right and for the
best good of the whole people, and
members of the Democratic party
who joined in the hue and cry
against him, have for the most

The recent State Convention,
held in Charlotte, will pass into
history as the occasion of one of
the hardest fought political bat
tles in the history of the State.
There were three candidates for
governor, W. W. Kitchen, Locke
Craig and Ashley Home, all good
men and good Democrats. The
friends of each made a great fight
for four days, and then the Home
forces seeing their was no chance
for the nomination of their man,
withdrew his name from the race.
Then, on the 61st ballot, Mr.
Kitchen secured enough votes to
give him the nomination, which
was promptly made unanimous.

Kitchen, which took place Satur
day night the convention adjourn

Nature's G reat Blood Tonic
The recent drugf exposures in this Country have proven to all that deadly poisons
and stimulants lurk -in many Patent Medicines. You never know when you might be tak
ing some of that class.
Nature has made ample provision for restoring vigor and vitality to humanity, and
the public, as well as doctors, resort, to Natural Remedies, when all others have failed.
Are you troubled with Dyspepsia, Nervousness, Malaria, Kidney or
Bladder Trouble, Chronic Diarrhoea or Dysentery, and above all, that
dreadful disease Scrofula, which has almost baffled human skill, or Diseases pecu

from impoverished or ruti down conditions
furnishes the svstem what it needs.
The analysis of this Water, shown on the bottle, tells you what Nature thinks
you should tab.e when sicn., and the doctor who reads it will agree.
Do you think the grouping together in this Water of 17 different minerals, which
are recognized by medical writers as most powerful blood tonics, could have been
accidental ? Reason answers, NO 1
An 18-oz bottle of Piedmont-Bedford Concentrated Iron and Alum water contains
all the minerals of 25 gallons of the average natural water Then why buy a barrel
of water when you can get a bottle of minerals at the trivial cost of
one dollar. The dose is a teaspoonful in a glass of your own spring water.
How this Water acts upon the system is not clearly known. It is judged mainly
by its works. It has cured all the diseases numerated above, and many more, evidently
through its action as a powerful BLOOD TONIC.
