Chicago, May 12ih. Physicians and

F. S. Duffy has an unusual offer to
make to our readers, one that will be
of the greatest value to many.
For some years F. S. Duffy has been
watching the results from the use of
Hyomei, a treatment for catarrh that
cures by breathing medicated air, ab
solutely without any stomach dosing.
Die results have been so universally
successful that F. S. Duffy feels justi
fied in making a public offer to treat
the worst case of catarrh in New Bern
with the understanding that if Hyomei
does not cure, the treatment will cost
The regular Hyomei outfit costs only
one dollar, and consists of a neat
Docket inhaler that can be carried in
the purse br vest-pocket, a medicine
dropper, and a bottle of Hyomei. If
this is not enough for a cure, extra bot
tles of Hyomei can be obtained for 50
F. S. Duffy positively guarantees a
cure, if Hyomei is used in accordance
with directions, or F. S. Duffy will re
fund the maney.

Raleigh, May 11. A letter to the
Agricultural Department from the
Superintendent at the State Test Farm
at Statesville says all the cotton up
there was killed by the frosts this week
and that the same remark applies to
corn. From this statement it is be
lieved that this was the case with crops
generally in that section of the State.
It is very bad news as it means re

Safety Air Brake Invention.
Greensboro, May 12. At a meeting
of the Board of Aldermen yesterday
afternoon, the all absorbing topic of
the street paving question was settled,
and the report looks like a complete
vindication of Messrs. Merrimon and
Benbow, property owners, who sought
to have the city enjoined some time
ago from paving out any more money
on the contract, alleging that the work
was defective. The city fought the in
junction and Judge Furguson declined
to grant it. Later the Board of Alder
man appointed a committee of its own
to investigate the work and this com-
mitttee submitted this report yesterday
'The committee to whom you re
ferred the matter of the investigation
of the paving of Elm street with vitri
fied brick would respectfully report
that, pursuant to the authority con
ferred upon them, they secured the ser
vices of an expert engineer, Mr. G. C,
White, of Durham, ,N. C. and on May
1, 1905 together with the said expert
they proceeded to investigate said pav-
ng work, by opening the same digging
into and examining it.

Mr. John B Wright; of this citv. who
has for three years been at work on a
safety air brake attachment has had

has several applications for others
pending. Mr. Wright has had his air
brake in successful operation for three
months on three important railroad
systems and they have proven every'

writing Mr. Wright in high commenda
tion of the device. These tests have
been so satisfactory, Mr. Wright is
now building these brakes for general
use. He has made eight different de
vices, and now has his brake as near
perfection as possible. The device sets
in operation the brake already on the
train, automatically putting it into
emergency in case of derailment or
anything that caused the truck to be
placed in an abnormal condition. Any
derailment, a split switch,. the breaking
up a center pin. wheel or axle imme
diately puts the air brake on the whole
train, thus doing what the engineer
would do if he knew the moment any
such accident occurred which he of
coure cannot know. The best railroad
men in the country who have carefully
investigated the invention, declared it
to be absolutely new. and by far the
most practical and perfect prevention

J. E. Latham's Weekly Cotton Letter
Special to The Journal
Greensboro, N. C, May 12th. The
market has been much more active this
week caused by very low temperature
throughout the South. In many locali
ties killing frost is reported with much
injury to young cotton. Good trade
continues everywhere, and this is the
most bullish argument that can be ad
vanced. So long as spinners can con
tract ahead at profitable rate they will
be willing to buy cotton to cover these
sales. The new crop despite.., the frost
scare seems to be doing fairly well and
while present prices are very remuner
ative to cotton growers yet the neces
sity for a large production keeps the
market steady and no important decline
is expected until the situation Is more
favorably developed. The amount of
American cotton brought Into sight for
the week is 79,321 bales less than the
same week last year, the statistics are
gradually growing more , bulish each
week, but nothing has yet appeared to
make the trade fear a famine this sum

On Monday May 14, all grades will

term and the final examinations will be

will be present for these reviews and
the examinations. There are a num
ber of children in the city who have
passed on the first term's work once,
and some twice, but they have dropped
out of school before the final examina
tions and 30 have remained in the grades
where they were. If it is possible
these pupils should make every effort to
be in school for the next three weeks,
make up what they have missed and get
promoted. I should like very much to
see every pupil in school get promoted
and those who fail are usually those
who drop out in the spring or come
once a week. I hope the parents in the
city will help us in trying to help their
children and see that we have every
pupil now in the city, in school during
the next three weeks. School will
