Grip is characterized by a continued fever, by a tendency to inflammation kof the membranes of the digestive and often the respiratory tracts, by pain in the muscles, and by debility. The grip in individual -cases varies from a slight indisposition to severe forms i with grave symptoms these variations deoendiner whollv upon the health, age' temperament or nervous condition of the person. Those pre disposed to rheumatism suffer great pain in the muscles ; persons of nervous temperament become low spirited. often have hysteria, and, if not closely watched, have been known to commit suicide. Several cases of this sort have been reported this month in the news papers. Headache Is a constant symp tom. The bowels are generally con stipated. Whatever form the disease takes there is invariably extreme pros tration. The danger to persons in previous healthful condition is slight It has been absolutely proven that there is one certain -preventive of seri ous cases of grip; and thit there is one remedy for persons suff eVing with it, or beginning to be convalescent from its attack. The unexampled public demand for Paine's celery compound during the last two months and the proprietors Among the bills introduced were the following: To incorporate the North Carolina Trust Co. ; to allow Robeson county to work convicts on public roads; to extend the time two years for beginning work on the Lumberton and Lumber River railr ad ; to incorporate the United Mining Construction and Development Company; .to incor porate the Wilmington Underwriters' Insurance Company, with P.

July 1st (after January 1st, 1900); also, that it shall be unlawful to use seine or net of. any kind on the south or east side of Masonboro channel, from the mouth of Masonboro inlet to Cockle-Shell bight; also, it shall be uh lawful to use seme or net within six hundred yards of an established fishery, except "seines or nets used at said fishery.: ' This act applies only to coasts and sounds of New Hanover county.

Bill to appropriate $100,000 to the public schools of North Carolina, pro vides that this money shall be distrib uted to "the respective counties of the State, per. capita as to school popula V of Supt. Davidson. Results Obtained in tile Case of this iemedy have never known so great a call for it has been due to its use by thousands of people for whom it has been prescribed b intelligent phvsicians, ,to restore the patient's vitality, to! purify the blood of the enervating poison, to restore the ner vous system to healthy action and to strengthen the vital organs. A person will continue to suffer from the evil effects of grip for many months unless he attacks the disease by getttngrid of the unnatural, unhealthy poisons in the system, supplying the body with new blood, arousing the healthful action of the kidneys, liver and digestive organs, and nourishing and upbuilding the over-exerted and debilitated nervous system. All this and just this Paine's celery compound will do. -Jn the multitude of cases where it has been used, it has never failed. t A case well known in Chicago is cited. Mr. j,Frank E. Davidson, who is. one of the most brilliant and best known engineers in the world, had just finished the plans for the great intercepting sewer system of Chicago, which is to divert the entire sewerage of the city from Lake Michigan, through the famous Chicago drainage canal, and down the Mississippi Superintendent Davidson had worked for months on this scheme. He was well nigh exhausted and took' to his bed with an attack of the grip. tion, on the first Monday in January of each year, using the school census of the previous scholastic year as a basis of apportionment. . BUI to establish a department ' of agriculture and mechanic arts. The department, according to the bill, is to be managed by twenty-one trustees, nine of whom (one from each con gressional districd) shall be practical agriculturists. These trustees shall be chosen by the General Assembly and shall control and manage the Agri cultural and Mechanical College and all property of the Experiment Station and Fertilizer Station, It is .further provided, that . as far - as practicable the work of the college nd -experiment station shall be one and the same; and experiments in seeds, soils, dairy ing, farming and agriculture, shall be conducted in connection with college work and be a part thereof, it being the purpose of this act to consolidate and cheapen the work of the .college and station as far as the same shall be practicable. : .. r 1 Only six bills were passed on third and final reading., ' To create the county of Scotland. To establish : the Vance textile school. i ' ' : . , ; To establish a dispensary at Smith leld. To authorize Rockingham county to issue bonds. To make the lease of turpentine orchajds expire February 1st, instead of April 1st. - To appropriate between $80,000 and 85,000 annually for the institution for the Deaf, Dumb and Blind. This is a large increase over the appropriation of former years, ahd aroused consid erable opposition after being discussed for more than . an hour. The , bill passed its third reading. In the Senate. In the Senate the following bills' were introduced: To establish dis pensaries at Clinton, Madison7 and Youngsville; to prohibit fishing with nets half a mile long in Neuse river; to regulate appeals to the Supreme Court (which provides that the Su preme Court shall pass upon all points raised in an appeal, and shall not be barred by technicality from rendering opinion); to amend Section S797 of the Code, y fixing a time for muni cipal elections;.: to abolish courts in Madison and establish crim inal courts; to , incorporate: the Southeastern Railroad; to amend the charter of Red Springs; calling on the Governor for reports of the peniten tary for 1897 and 1898; to remove the State arsenal; to authorize Durham to issue school bonds ; to authorize Tyrrel "v. ' - - GRIP I -1 I After a while the disease not having le. i. aim. he was advised to try Paine s celery compound. He was soon back at his office in the department of pub lie works, a well man, and forthwith wrote a letter to the proprietors of the remedy, in which he says: . "I had been told by friends of the wonderful results obtained by tnem from the use of Paine's celery com pound. After my severe attack of the grip I determined to try it. I have already found that my friends' reports were not at all exaggerated, and wish to join most cheerfully with them in recommending the remedy to others." Hundreds of grateful letters have been., written to the proprietors of, fame 8 celery compound since tne ap pearance of grip this year, telling of the perfect recoveries it has effected The letters come from men and wo men of many conditions. Few persons are so poor thtey cannot afford to have this great remedy constantly in the house, and none are so prosperous that for their health's sake they can afford to be without it. When so many men and women whose words carry the utmost weight in the communities in which they live testify as they do to the great benefit they have received from Paine's celery compound, there can be no hesitancy . in trying it A single trial is the test which is confi dently invited. '.. to levy a special tax ; to improve roads in Anson ; to amend the Code relating to marriage license (applying only to Robeson) ; to amend Section 49 of the Code, putting telegraph and telephone companies on the same footing as re gards right of way along railroads; to regulate drainage-of lowlands; to establish a dispensary in the town of Madison, Rockingham county; to in-, corporate the North and South Caro lina Railroad; to charter Coleman cotton mill (colored) at Salisbury; to establish a dispensary at Clayton; to incorporate the Great Council of the N. C. Order of Red Men. The Penitentiary Board. . The (new board of penitentiary di rectors 1 met here4p day. ' The old board refused to meet with them, but held a separate meeting. Capt. Day also refused to recognize the new boaTtl. ; The following is a letter they "wrote to him while in session: "Dear Sir: We hereby notify you that the, Board of Directors of the State jarison has .ben this day duly organized, under provision of the act of the " General Assembly, ratified January 26, 1899, and we hereby de mand that yoii- surrender and deliver to us such of the property of said State's prison and also the convicts confined therein, asvare in your pos session." He replied as follows : "Gentlemen Being of opinion that the act of the'. Assembly, ratified Jan uary 26, 1899, under authority of which you profess to act, is unconsti tutional, and has no effect . to deprive me of official authority or to relieve me or my bondsmen of responsibility, or to authorize you to demand the property .now in my custody, or . to assume and exercise any of my official functions, I, therefore, decline your demand for the rurrender of the same, and the delivery of said property or the control of the convicts into your hands. At the same time, I am ready to facilitate a judicial determination of your claims." . The matter will go into the courts for settlement. One case of smallpox was discovered in Raleigh to-day. The patient is a negro named Peter Scott. He has .been away six weeks, working on . a railroad from Tarboro to Pinne'rs Point. He reached Raleieh at 4 o'clock this morning, sick.
