Delivery Boy for Coast Lint Market Has
Narrow Escape. ..
Master Howard bimpson.tne delivery
boy for the Coast Line Market came
near climbing the goldm stairs by
the aid of an A. & N. C. locomotive
last evening. As the mail train ap
proached Broad street, going South,
', the boy went down the street from the
vicinity of the market, the boy sto ped
for an instant on the near side of the
- railraad track, and then crossed the
track right in front of the train. The
'' - cart had not passed quite far enough
along to escape, the . tender, which
pushed it along sideways on the git unl
' sfor three or four inches, but itot dam-
aging it at all.
1 The boy frightened almost to death,
leaped to the ground and ran to the
. mule's head and tried to lead the ani
mal away but is is said that the beast
assumed its prerogative and balked,
' after gome persuation it moved "on,
probably not aware of Its close call. '
.. The incident is one more, instance
- of the great propriety in having gates
at the crossings. Is it necessary for
Borne one to be killed before these safe
guards are instituted ? or may we look
for them in the near future? True, the
boy may have been careless but there
may come a time when carelessness
can not be charged except ,on the part
- of the railroad itself. For the sake of
protecting itself against expensive
litigation the gates ought to be es

Washington, Feby 21. Representa

today at Asheville, ?. C, alleging that
he practiced before the Treasury De

Democrats of the House have not in

the ' result of the elections, this fall
Closest students of the latest available
data have been taking much comfort
out of the figures of the last elections,
to say nothing of the lack of the old-
time clan and cohesion of the majority
in both branches of Congress.
' After IS years of more or less serious
consideration of the subject, the Senate
today passed a pure food bill, by the
decisive vot of 63 to 4. , The vote was
taken after a ' day devoted almost ex
clusively to debate of a desultory char
acter on the measure. Several efforts
were made to amend the bill and the
committee accepted a number of sug
gestions, but only those thus accepted
were incorporated in the bill as passed.
The bill makes it a misdemeanor to
manufacture or sell adulterated or mis-
branded foods, drugs, medicines or liq
uors in the District of Columbia the
Territories and the insular possessions
of the United States, and prohibits the
the shipment of goods from one State
to another or to a foreign country. It
also prohibits the receipt of such goods.

8. Duffy Guarantees a Cure by Hyomel
WIN Refund the Money.
Until very recent years, it was
thought that catarrh was a disease of
the blood, but now modern science has
proved that catarrh is a germ disease,
and can be cured only by a treatment
that will kill the germ and heal the
mucous membrane of the nose and
throat y.v' -'V ', '
Therefore, when you have catarrh,
you can readily see that if you want to
cure it you should use Hyomei, which
medicates the air you breathe, thus
killing the catarrhal germs and healing
the smarting and raw membrane of the
passage through the nose and throat
The complete Hyomei outfit, consist
ing of an inhaler, a bottle of Hyomei,
and a medicine dropper, costs only $1,
while extra bottles can be obtained for
50 cents.
F. S. Duffy has sold a great many
Hyomei outfits, and the more he sells,
the more convinced he is that he is per
fectly safe in guaranteeing to refund
the money if Hyomei does not cure

cent from 1904, ; hold cotton until ad
vised to sell, sell no part of 1906 crop
until minimum price is named by the

(Special Correspondence.)
Greensboro, Feby 21, Mr. Norman
Johnson, Attorney General of the North
Carolina Retail Merchants Association
, was here last night, returning to Ral
jeigh from a visit to the Virginia State
I Mercantile Association in session at
TRoanoke. ; Mr. Johnson was verv much
surprised, and pardonably proud of the
honor done him by the Association of
Virginia. Without a thought of such a
thing he was unanimously chosen a
ths Attorney General of the Association
of that State.
. The Convocation of Charlotte, of
which Rev. E. A. Osborn, is Dean
will hold its regular quarterly session
in St Barnabas Episcopal church, Greens
boro, beginning Thursday March 13.
v The College Committee of the Pro
testant Methodist church of North L
Carolina will hold a meeting on Febru
ary 28, - in the Directors room of the
Greensboro Loan & Trust Company
building, for the purpose of definitely
fixing a location for the proposed col
lege for that -denomination. Three
years ago a site in Greensboro was de
cided upon and the property purchased
near Pomona, but when the Railroad
built its new shifting tracks nearby it
was sold at a big advance and another
site purchased in South Greensboro. In
the 'meantime the work of raising an
endowment fund has. been prosecuted
and contributions toward the building
fund secured. : At the recent session of
the annual conference at High' Point
this thriving city took up the question
of locating the college there and made
such liberal offers, the committee wss
appointed to consider the matter of
changing the proposed location from
Greensboro to High Point
All of Monday was taken up in the
Superior court here trying a damage
suit for mental anguish against the
Western Union Telegraph Company for
failure to deliver a telegram announc-
the death of her mother .to Miss
Hannah Bun-ouch of Greensboro. She
sued for $2,000 and the jury gave her
$200. . Yesterday a singular case was
tried for herbrother John Burroughs of
Reidsville, and he got $50. The court
is today trying still another case for a
sister, Miss Rosana Burroughs of High
Point It is remarkable that telegrams
sent to three different people, in three
different places should all have been de
layed in delivery. ' "

unstinted compliment for their ex

F. 8. Duffy Sells Hyomei Under Guarantee
That It Costs Nothing Unless It
. Cures.
Hyomei cures the worst cases of ca
tarrh simply by breathing the remedy
through the pocket inhaler that comes
with every outfit
Stomach drugging often causes dis
ordered digestion, and never makes a
permanent cure of catarrh. Hyomei
not only kills the germs in the throat
and nose, but penetrates to the min
utest air cells in the lungs and enters
the blood with the oxygen, killing the
catarrhal germs in the blood.
The complete Hyomei outfit, consist
ing of a vest-pocket inhaler and medi
cine dropper, and a bottle of Hyomei,
costs only $1. If this does not effect a
complete cure, extra bottles can be ob
tained for 50 cents
F. S. Duffy knows of many people
who have been cured of catarrh by Hy
omei. He believes in it so thoroughly
himself that he offers to refund the
money in case it does not cure. N '
