A Good Work.
The city authorities, caused the old

Middle streets to be filled up. It was an
old surface well and like several others,
had become unfit for use. : ' '
The authorities are doing well to have
these old wells filled up, for ailde from
being unfit to drink from, they area
menace to health In the generation of
disease germs, In the stale and putried
waters of which they are reaorvolra.
It 1 hoped that the work will go on
until all the old filthy opea wells In
town, will be filled in, and that the cltl-
tens will have regard enough for their
health to drink artesian water.' This

Sickness In the Town. Death of
Oct. 2. Good news Is scarce in our
place for the last week or two, bad news
has taken the place it seems.
Death has removed two of our citi
zens In the last few days, while others
are complaining heavily. Mrs. Rev. L.
M. Hobbs, wife of our ebteemed and be
loved Baptist pastor, died last Monday
morning, 80th ult. after a lingering Ill
ness of two months; during that time
she bore her affliction with Christian
fortitude. Some days we would think
that sister Hobbs was getting well, and
on the Sunday before her death she was
thought to be out of danger. She was a
young woman of genial manners, ' good
temper and lovable disposition, leaving
a good and loving husband, f ather.moth-
er, sisters and brothers, besides scores of
friends whom she had made while In our
village. May the good Lord receive and
bless her soul. She was carried to her
former home. Falson's, for burial,; after
a eulogy over her life and death by Rev.
B. H. Matthews waa given at the par
sonage where she died.

of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Rogers here died

What used to be called female disei
by the medical profession la now ealled
pelvlo catarrh. It has been found by
experience that catarrhal diseaaea of the
pelvlo organs are the eaueof most cases
of female disease.
Dr. Hartman waa among the first of
America's great physicians to make this
discovery. For forty years he has beast
treating diseases peculiar to women, and
long ago he reached the conclusion that
a woman entirely free from catarrhal
affection of these organs would not be
subject to female disease. He thereto
began using Pemna for these eases and
found it so admirably adapted to their
permanent core that Pemna has now
become the most famous remedy tor
female disease ever known. Every
