Convenience and safety. I
These are the characteristics of the modern banking busi- E
ness. No man who wishes to have his money in an absolute-
ly safe place can afford to let it stay out of the bank. There 1
s it is not only safe, but there it can be best and most easily
2 used by him. When you have a bank account you are never
I bothered about making change or sending money off. All
you have to do is to write a check on your bank. All this
saving costs you nothing. When you deposit money we give
you a check book free and charge you nothing for keeping
g the account, and you can take ail the money out whenever
you want to. If you want to leave it for a stated time we 5
s will pay you interests it s
I'ut your money where it will serve you best, and where i
neither burglars nor lire can touch it
1 The People's Bank is the olddst and largest bank in this g
section, and has a long and splendid history for honest', 5
s safety and liberal treatment of its customers. We want every i
s man in Union county who hasn't already a bank account to 9
2 oen one with us. We take large or small accounts. 1

There is only one way to cure deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by au iuflained
condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this .tubs
gets inflamed you have rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed deafness is the re
sult, and unless the inflammation can
be taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever; nine cases out of
ten are caused by catarrh, which is
"nothing but an inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.

"What is the attraction that San-
ford has for people about here?'
asked some one in noting the several
removals from this section to Moore
county that have taken place in the
last few months. Monroe Journal.
There are great possibilities in
store for Sanford and Moore county.
and home seekers and pnwpecUirs
are quick to see them. The other
day a Northern gentleman who has
moved to Sanford to engage in busi
ness said to us: "This is a good sec
tion of country. The land can be
brought up to a high state of culti
vation and with improved machinery
the farmers can become independent,
notwithstanding the scarcity of la
bor." Almost everything that can be
raised on a farm can be produced in
Moore county. A number of citizens
who have moved from Mecklenburg
and I'nion to Moore came here with
the expectation of later engaging in
slock raising. They tind that the
soil is well adapted to the culture of
clover, all kinds of grasses and grain
and that the shipping facilities are
unsurpassed. Si much for Moore as
an agricultural county. Now as to
the attractions of Sanford. No tow n
in the middle section of the State has
a brighter future than Sanford.
When prospectors visit the place
and lind everybody busy at one thing
or another, they are favorably im
pressed and feci that they would
make no mistake in investing. They
lind our merchants busy selling goods
and our manufacturing establish
ments rushed with orders and work
ing to their full capacity. Thev find
a splendid system of graded schools
where they can educate their chil
dren. They are told that in a few
months Sanford will have one of the
handsomest graded school buildings
in the State. We would remind The
Journal that one of Sanford's leading
and most successful merchants is a
gentleman from Union county and
he has become so since the first of
last January. If the editor of The
Journal will "take a day off" and
come up to Sanford we will take
pleasure in showing him the attrac
tions that are building up Sanford
and Moore county.

J. R. Taylor, a prominent merchant of
Chriesinan, Tens, says: "I could not
eat because of a weak stomach. I lost
all strength and ran down in weight.
All that money could do was done, but
all hope of recovery vanished. Hear
ing of some wonderful cures effected
by use of Kodol Dyspepsia Cure, I con

Twaol Life's Traced ies-The Blind
Man and the Drunkard.
J C MrNVill la ckarl,4Hllw.r.
The blind etK-il-veuder wa at
his post yesterday afternoon. Ifcian
East Trade street, more than iu the
other direction, the view suggest
ed autumn. It was halcyon weath
er and the light had that dreauiy
Ulity which has pleased anil
teased poets from the beginning of
time and has put them to "looking
on the happv autiiiuu fields and
thinking of the days that are Uo
Amid the idiuflle of feet on the
pavement and the noise of traffic
stood the blind man, Ins chin ou
his breast, his shoulders drooiied,
crying bis wares. It is the most
pathetic sound that may lie heard
in l harlot te.
While two friends were standing
near looking at hnu and comment
Ing on the aaduetti of his lot and
the mystery of the Providence that
bad bis making, along came the
patrol wagon, rolling merrily to the
lorn ue, with a druukeu nrisouer.
People waited or stepped aside for
the wagon to pass, not raising their
eyes to see so common a thing as a
man nnder arrest. They passed the
blind man where be leaned against
his telephone pole, and not one out
of a hundrea glanced at him. Yet
Mark ham's "Man With the Hoe"
has not the sermons or the poems
In bim that either this blind man
or this drunkard might inspire.
The life that raised up clay and
molded this blind man of it, put
lungs aud heart aud brains into it,
has fought its path through death
for a million years. Iguoraut of
its destiny, it has fought to keep
living; has taken clay and made
kings of it, and baa, of the same
clay, fashioned cobblers. It has
lodged in palaois and huts, in
queens and U'ggar maids, has
Hushed a sword ou the field of bat
tle and gnided a plow through the
held of corn.
Aud here it is, blind. Hut, mind
you, that persistent cry: "Pencils!
1'eucils!" It is not tired or dis
couraged; it is lighting still. That
mau bears thousands of feet tread
past him; to and from every train
he hears the mil ot the omnibuses;
the clang of street cars, the lumber
ing of wagons, the confusion of
street calls, the laughter of women
and the voices of children, these
are bis familiars for ho is 111 the
midst of them, the mortal enemy
of death. And, the perpetual mys
tery of it is that he doesn't know
any more why he keeps at it and
will not surrender than a ship
knows why it responds to the rud
der. He doesn't try to think of it.
Aspiration and pride are abstrac
tions to his mind, but he himself is
Hut the drunk fellow went mer
rily 011 to prison. A million years
of struggle has resulted in him; all
the sweet springs have bickered
their way to this bitter sea. While
hundreds of thousands of soldiers
are ranged against one another for
property or priuciple, and while
other thousands are tireless toilers
lest the dear lease of life should
cease before harvest, he giggles ut
of the world, red-eyed, and cares
little whether he is ImiiukI to prison
or paradise. He would stand and
look at Atlas and laugh at him.
He has elected to shirk his share
of the world's burden, It has bat
tled, humanity has, to set him free
for (his, that he might volunteer to
be found and cast into a cell.

that millions have U-en spent to

The chapters on plant disease give
easy ways of learning the difficult
ests and for destroying them. If
farmers applied these, this enor

reduced and enough money would
lie saved each year to establish an
agricultural school in every county.
Nothing is easier than to show a

"The dirty Kussian peasants

for the harvest, lie is very cheap -this
peasant. All he lurds is black

the lash to keep him from going
asleep, and Iheu when the work is
over why the Issit instead of the

"Sometimes these cattle dare to

our judge is a sly old fellow, lie
just smiles and asks them for the
written contract. Of course the
peasant has none. 'Then,' says the
judge, 'pei Imps in (he verbal con
tract he promised you only sixteen

harvest work. That's what he tells
me, and I think he's more hoi. out

The first intimation that there was

work has already been begun on the

the least dilliculties. As soon as the
machinery is installed at this point.
and when this development is prac

commenced on the other I wo. The
fact is admitted by the ollicials of
the company that a vast amount of
machinery must Is' brought in be

may lie made. The task is going b

the enginecers of the company are
making ready for what is lo come.
