HEGIOX OF THOUGHT LO
CATED. It is a well known fact that
scieucs has been prying into the
myeries centered in the cranium
and so thoroughly has the brain
been studied that nervous disorders
have u se a traced to the particular
parts of the brain from which they
emanated and the cause removed.
Indeed the cranial expert sees the
brain as the geographer sees the sur
face cf the globe and as the machin
ist sees his machinery, but till re
cently the point where thought is
formed seemed to baffle his skill. A
German scientific expert now seems
confident that he hat discovered the
seat of thought, and to make his
theory the more creditable it is that
particular part of the brain whose
functions have hitherto been un
known. He finds the brain in an
infant in a condition that he com
pares to a green apple. That of the
adult as a ripe apple.
With the Rcentgen rays and a
well defined knowledge of the brain,
it seems that we might eventually
know when a man is a safe leader
or when he is off. Whether it will
be very comforting to a majority of
lis is doubtful.
We suspect that the number of
braiDS that will be found perfectly
ripe and sound will not compare
favorably with those of apples and
it might be of great advantage,
though of little comfort, to ajellow
to know that it is a defective spot
from which his hallucinations ema
nate, and if .not too far gone it
might cause him to keep his mouth
shut to the joy of the rest of the

We are sorry to learn that Mt
Pieaeant'd most venerable citizen,
Col. John Shimpoch, has suffered
another stroke of paralysis recently
and is now filling out life's lingering
decline with little to make life de
sirable. The Colonel has pissed

Mr. Tom Watson is trying to
claim that it was the understanding
ing that Sewall was to Iv? taken
down and now implies a threat of
Bryan's defeat if Chairman Jones
does not attend to that little mat
ter. Mr. Watson does not know
that Populists are not all so erratic
and contentious. We have a num
ber, and we think a goodly number
in Cabarrus who had determined
before the fusion to vote straight
out for Bryan and Sawall. There
is little doubt that Bryan and
Sewall could have had a heavier
vote than Bryan and Watson. But
of course Mr. Watson can't see it
Hon. Tom Reed says he does not
like campaigning; it is too much
like doing "penance" for him. We
are not surprised at this. It is no
easy matter for a man who requires
so much belly band as Tom does to
transport himself around. Morn
A man may dress as well as his
own good judgment and the assist
ance of an artistic tailor may elect.
He may take his ''tubs" but if his
digestive organs are out of order, he
will have an unwholesome appear
ance. His complexion and the
white of his eyes will have a yellow
ish cast. His tongue wiil be coated,
appetite poor, his teeth rusty, his
breath abominable. He is one big,
unmistakable sign of constipation.
The quickest, surest, easiest way to
cure this trouble is to take Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. They are
made of refined, concentrated vege
table extracts. Nothing in the leact
harmful enters into their composi
tion. They hunt down all impuri
ties, and "make them move on."
They are the product of many
years' study and practice. Dr. Pierce

were designed to supply a
model purgative to people who

with griping medicines. Being
carefully prepared and their in
