The Discovery Saved Ills Uie.
Mr. G. Cailloutte, Druggist, at
Beaverville, 111., says: To Dr. King's
New discovery I owe my life. Was
taken with La Grippe and tried all
the physicians for miles about, but
of no avail and was given up and
told I could not Jive. Having Dr.
King's New Discovery in my store I
sent for a bottle and began its use
and from the first dose began to
get better, and after using three
bottles was ur and about again. It
is worth its weight in gold. We
won't keep store or house without
it. Get a free trial at Fetzer's

After the usual routine business,
the question as to whether the ordi
nance against shooting fireworks be
suspended during the holidays was
discussed. It looked a little blue
for the small boy at first, but it was
finally agreed that the ordinance in
question be suspended from 9 o'clock
p. m., Dec. 24, to 12 o'clock Christ
mas night, provided, however, that
the mayor may at any time declare
the ordinance in force if, in his
judgment, property is endangered
by the firing.
Mr. W T Fisher, who has a store
on West Corbin street, sear the de
pot, appeared before the beard t;nd
prayed relief from a predicament in
which the street force had left him.
It seems the street directly in front
of hid store had been cut down sev
eral feet and left no way of approach
to his store. The matter was re
ferred to the street committee with
power to act.
A hose coupling expander and
half a dozen lanterns will be pur
chased for the fire department, and
a rack will be built in the hall on
which to dry, the hose.
The claim of R A Brown against
the city for building extra 25 ,feet
on the water tower, which amounted
to $65828, .was - satisfactorily i ar
ranged last night. Mr. Brown is to
accept city script to the amount cf
$500 the difference between his
taxes and the full claim to be paid
On motion the mayor appointed a
committee to examine the city's
charter and ascertain what amend
ments were necessary to meet the
increasing demands of our growing
city, and take tbe necessary steps
toward securing such changes b)
the legislature. The city is sadly
in ned of money, and a ne is3ue
of bonds is imperative, but under
the existing charter an additional
issue cannot '.b- ru.c'e. The chair
appointed as egc-i committee Messrs.
Duval, Bron ar;d Kouoton.

The drug store of Dr. A W Moose,
in Mt. Pleasant, was entered by
burglars last Monday night. The
amount of goods stolen could not
be learned, but it is thought the
burglars became alarmed and left
before they had finished their job,
as a kit of tools was found at the
door, where they had left them on
entering the store. No clue to the
guilty parties has yet been obtained.

The occasion of a great gathering
at Mr. Henry Dry's last week was
his public sale of personal property,
real estate, etc Enterprising mer
chants of Stanly and this county sent
representatives with suchf goods as
are most salable on occasions of this
kind. It seems that the "Land of
Moonshine" was-represented also, at
least there as a "tiger, jangle" at
no great distance. This was a gen
eral rendezvous for those having
empty bottles, and a source of all the
reckless hilarity, ribaldry and
viciousness of some that were pres
ent at the auction. There were
more than one resultant fracas, but
no fatalities. An hilarious, tipsy
youth approached a wagon and de
clared his intention of knocking off
a tire. Some one cautioned him
against such recklessness, but he
said aneeringly, "I've never yit found
the wfigon whose tire I couldn't
knock off at one blow from the fist."
