Spinners are doing such a fine business
that they will likely conti ue to buy on

necessary for a considerable time. Some
new issue is needed to galvanize the
market into activity. We believe, cctton

Raleigh, March 10. The road engi

structions as to the construction of j
sand-clay roads. New Hanover and
Brunswick will also take a decided for

There has just issued from the press
Vol I., No. L, of a magazine to be
known as the High School Enterprise. J
It comes from the hands and brains of !
the j oung people who atUnd the Ral-'

flects great credit upon all those who terests, and is one of the best informed

There is great variety of matter,
both of the serious and light- nl the!
pages teem with proof of study, care
and ability, coupled with the force of
discretion and unusual acumen.
The action of the Raleigh board of
aldermen at the called meeting for the
reception of the proposition recently
made by the Wake Water Company, of
this city, seems to indicate a spirit of
will loaning toward municipal owner
ship more distinctly than has hereto-
fore been expressed. The fact that
$2,000 will be expended to make a
thorough investigation and examina
tion of the plant etc, shows the city
fathers are ready to adopt measures of
wisdom hedged about with carefulness
and thoroughness. The special com
mittee has been retained and has even
further been augmented. There is lit
tie doubt that the subjects of gas and

settlement soon '.- J' X .
An object of universal interest to all
who enter the Supreme court building
in Raleigh is the model which Iredell
Mears has employed in presenting his

Wilmington. The case is that of the
man who was severely shocked and
burned by contact with an electrically
charged wire and awning, by which he
lost an arm, Mr. Meares has a care
fully planned reproduction, mounted on
a board surface, of the transmission of
power and electricity for lights in that
city. The model is carefully and clever

A VINDICATION FOR DR. PIERCE
Decision by tha Suprema Court of tht State,
, Against the Ladlee' Home Journal. .
A verdict has been rendered in favor
of the plaintiff in the libel suit brought
against the Ladies.' Home Journal (pub
lished by the Curtis Publishing Co. ) by
the World's Dispensary Medical Asoi
ciation, of which Dr. R. V. Pierce is
President. The suit was brought by
Doctor Pierce against the Curtis Pub
lishing Co., for making false state
ments about one of the standard family
medicines known as Dr. Pierce's 'Fa
vorite Prescription. In the May num
ber of the Ladies' Home Journal (1904),
Mr. Edward .Bok, the editor, stated
that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
contained alcohol and some other harm
ful ingredients, and Dr. Pierce had in
the action alleged that the defendant
maliciously published this article con
taining such false and defamatory mat
ter,. Dr. Pierce further claimed that
no alcohol is or ever was contained in
his "Favorite Prescription," that said
medicine was a vegetable preparation
and contained no ' deleterious ingredi
ents whatever; that Mr. Bok's state
ment, pretending to give some , of the
ingredients of said medicine, was
wholly and absolutely false. During
the trial, the Vice-Presidentof the
World's Dispensary .Medical Associa
tion stated, that the ingredients of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription were ex
tracted from the following native roots:
Golden Seal, Blue Cohosh, Lady's Slip
per, ' Black Cohosh and Unicorn, by
means of pure glycerine. He was ask
ed how he knew, as a physician and ex
perienced medical man, that the "Fa
vorite Prescription" was a cure for the
diseases peculiar to women, such as
amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, ante-version,
retroversion, and he stated that
he knew such wa? the fact because of
his professional experience ' and the
many thousands of women whose ills
had been curedby this "Prescription."
The Vice-President, being asked to give
his authorities, read from the standard
works, such as the United States Dis
pensatory, The American Dispensatory
and many other standard medical books.
The retraction printed by the Curtis
Publishing Company two months after
the libelous statement appeared and
nearly two months after the suit had
been begun stated definitely that analy
ses had beeirmade at their request and
that the "Favorite Prescription" did
not contain either alcohol, opium or
digitalis. '' .
