From a letter written by Ilev. J.
Gunderman. of Diamondale, Mich.,
we are permitted to make this ex
tract: 1 have no hesitation in re
commending Dr. King's New Dis
covery, as the results were almost
marvelous in the casa of my wife.
While I was pastor of the Baptist
church at Bives Junction she was
brought down with pneumonia
succeeding La Grippe, Terrible
paroxysms of coughiug would last
hours with little interruption and it
seemed as if she could not survive
them, A friend recommended Dr.
King's New Discouery; it was quick
in its work and highly satisfactory
in results. Trial bottles free at

Arm Torn Up in a cotton liin.
Bob Biggers, a young white m?n
of No. 10 township, who was em
ployed 'at Dulin's cotton gin, in
Mecklenburg county, met with a
serious accident Saturday while
feeding the gin. In some way his
left arm was caught in the ma
chinery and badly lacerated, and
the fingers on his right hand were
all broken. Dr. Black says it is
doubtful if the arm can be saved,
and if it is, Mr. Biggers will be dis
figured for life.
