if President Roosevelt can be in

Ink and Paint.
"There is a difference between
good advertising and showy adver
tising" says The British Adver
tiser. "The showy advertisement
will receive the commendation of
those who don:t think- much
about advertising, or who are not
going to buy the goods. This
commendation is a pleasant thing
to have, but it sometimes costs
more than it is worth." Outdoor
advertising is of the showy variety.
Ten square inches of newspaper
space filled with sensible selling
talk in behalf of a meritorious
commodity will exert a greater in
fluence on the minds of buyers
than ten thousand square feet of
red paint smeared over the land

newspaper is of the type that com
mauds the confidence of its read
ers. Philadelphia Record.
Another Snake Story.
A rural mail carrier is respon
Bible for the tale of a curious ex
perience with a pair of black
snakes by a man whose name ne
could not learn.
He says that the man was walk
ing through the Woods when he
came upon a monster black snake
about six feet in length, which at
tacked him and attempted to wind
its body around him . He secured
a large stick and killed the snake
but not before it had dealt him a
severe blow upon the face in its
efforts to squeeze him, the marks
of which were still visible. Im
mediately after killing the first
snake its mate came out from un
der some shrubbery and seeing its
dead companion made for the man
and severely but probably not se
riously, hurt his knee before he
could do away with it. Asheville

An interesting nent between a

took place on the street here the

part of it was that the jar fly
whipped out the sparrow and got

fight, became faBt and furious.

Nature's Great Blood Tonic
The recent drug: 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 restof ing1 vigor and vitality to humanity, and
the public, as well as doctors, resort to Natural Remedies, when all others have failed,
xai j Are 2u tr2TibledA with Dyspepsia, Nervousness, Malaria, Kidney or
gladder Trouble, Chronic Diarrhoea or Dysentery, and above all, that
dreadful disease Scrofula, which has almost baffled human skill, or Diseases pecu
liar to Females?
Iron Alum Water
Is Nature's Remedy for Nature's Ills. Yes, when you consider that disease comes
from impoverished or run down conditions of the system, this Natural Mineral Water
furnishes the system what it needs. .
The analysis of this Water, shown on the bottle, tells you what Nature thinks
you should take when sick, 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 6f 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. "
