The Watchman and Record's
voting contest begin next week
If yon want to be in it send in
your name at once and .call and
get instructions, receipt books,
etc. This contest will surely end
by some one getting a good buggy,
a sewing machine or something
worth while. Start with the
crowd and go in to win.
It will be noticed in another
co'nmn that some several folks
hve "gone and took and got
married," and that Register of
Dseds Miller seems to think there
will be others who will change
from single bliss to double har
ness, or single harness to mutual
bliss, as the case may be, within
th9 next few days. Wejwish them
all much joy, long and prosperous
lives . The Watchman is enabled
to print accounts of a number of
tKese owing to the kindness and
thoughtfulness of good friends
who sent in the notices. We ap
preciate this. The editor cannot
b i all over the countyjat one time
and gather these items, conse
quently must depend to some ex
tt nt on friends and the faithful
correspondents. And right here
ne wish to make an explanation
to our correspondents. During
the last few weeks there has been
an unusual amount of advertising
This advertising was received and
promised space. They were set in
type, the items sent in by the cor
respondents were also put in type,
but there was not always room
for both, consequently on several
occasions they were thus unavoid
ably omitted, but some were pub
lished in The Recokd. It is our
intention to continue to give
space for the county -correspondents
and we hope theyjwill con
tinue to send us the news; it will
be printed, if it is possible to do
so . Hereafter we will send both
The Watchman and The Record
to them. There are a number of
places .in addition to those we
hcve, where we are anxious to
heve correspondents. They are:
E )ochville, Mt. UHa, Cleveland,
Mt. Vernon, South River, Spen
cer, Trading Ford, etc.

A Clean Man
Outside cleanliness is less than half the battle. A man may
scrub himself a dozen times a day, and still be unclean. Good
health means eleanliness not only outside, but inside. It means
a clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, and
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is clean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with energy and think
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
He will never be troubled with liver, lung, stomach or blood
disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean stom
achs. Blood diseases are found where there is unclean blood.
Consumption and bronchitis mean unclean lungs.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
prevents these diseases. It makes a man's insides clean
and healthy. It cleans the digestive organs, makes pure
clean blood and clean healthy flesh.
It restores tone to the nervous system, and cures nervous exhaustion and
prostration. It contains no alcohol or habit-forming drugs.
Constipation is the most unclean uncleanliness.. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pel
lets cure it. They never gripe. Easy to take as candy.

The Curse of the South.
What is the ma'ter With the South? According to government report of
1908 "The Secret is out at last the Southerner, contrary to current
opinion is not lazy, shiftless, indifferent or careless. "He is sick"
the South is afflicted with and harbors that most dreaded treacherous
nd destructive of all diseases Anemia, Pernicious Anemia. The
average Southerner is a sufferer of this health destroying parasite
which destroys the red bloood cells producing an impoverished con
dition of the blood; characterized by extreme pallor, general debility,
weakness, loss of vigor, lack of ambition, and general undermining
of vitality. The climate and atmospheric conditions destroy the
vitality. Let him get over it. Get rid of it. Get well, and he is
good physically as the best American-can boast. If there is health
of tbe slightest degree in your system, "WAKE IT TJP1 CALL IT
FORTH. PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER 1 MAN, WOMAN OR
CHILD; all can and should be well, lo neglect yourself is to reflect
upon the wisdom of your Maker. Nature intends all humanity to
enjoy a full measure of health and vigor. If you do not the fault, is
your own, for you are yourself to blame for it. Wonders have been
accomplished for the people of Tenneessee, Alabama, Georgia and
Mississippi, let us now do as much for the people of the Carolines. A
