It is said that more than 50,000
persons have received treatment with
Dr. Vicente's cure.
Wonderfully sucessful tests are an

patient who had been treated with
the serum drank a glass of pure cul

the man was beyond hope and the
doctors all said he would die. As a
matter of fact, the bacilli apparently

There was no increased indication of
fever, however, and after several
weeks of observation the physicians
declared that he completely escaped

treated with the serum three weeks
before and subjected him to a sub

typhoid bacilli. The first injection
was three cubic centimeters of germs.
There was not the slightest sign of

Cordon of Clayton, will arrive this
The business sessions were held in

of welcome was deleiered in bchau
of thecity of New Bern by E. H. Meadows.
Mr. Meadows was among the first
organizers ot the iNorin Carolina rnar-
maceutical Association and his remarks
were both interesting and instructive.
After bidding the visiting druggists
to enjoy their visit to the "Athens
of North Carolina" Mr. Meadows
spoke for a few minutes on matters
which were of vital importance. He
urged them to take no backward step
but to progress with the times. He
suggested that all applicants to prac

Mr. Meadows also suggested to the
Association that they encourage the
education of females to practice phar

to pharmacy as ladies," said Mr.
Meadows, "Their care, reliability,
neatness and intelligence recommend
"They have but one disqualifying
quality, from a bachelors view-point,
their inability to keep a secret, the fals
ity of which is known by all men save
and except our bachelor brothers
Why are they so wise
of your warm hearted citizens. We
know that in the past your toww
has charmed its visitors by the manner
of its entertainment. When conven
tions have assembled here and the del
egates have enjoyed the pleasures
which it affords, they go away feeling
that New Bern would be a delightful
place to live." '
Dr. R. DuVal Jones of this city wel

was followed by Dr. F. W. Hancock
of Oxford. Dr. Hancock is a native
of New Bern and has a host of friends
all over this section. His tribute to
the city of his birth was fitting and
be tutif ul and during the time that he
held the floor there was intense interest
Owing to the fact that the president
and a number of members were absent,
it was decided to delay the majority
of the business until today and this
was done. Secretary J. G. Baird of
Clayton read a number of communica

fraternal greetings and best wishes
after which the session came to a close.

Despite the fact that his case was a

Yesterday afternoon he seemed to
be much improved but just before
nightfall he was seized with a hard
chill and his condition rapidly grew
worse until death occurred.
The deceased was thirty-two years
of age. He is survived by his wife,
formerly Miss Mary Holton of Olympia;
one brother, Carl Dixon of Olympia,

the heart, neglect of which he believes
is the source of nost of the troubles
that wreck men and nations.
"This country and mankind at large,"
said Secretary Bryan, "are governed
by educated men, but the pity of it
is that educated men, so many of them,
have sold their brain to the cause of
injustice to mankind. My message to
you is that you improve your bodies
and make them strong, improve your
farms and make them productive, in
prove your schools and colleges to the
end that your minds may have every
facility for improvement; but, unless,
at the same time, you develop in your
heart the spirit of justice to mankind,
of service to your fellows rather than
means to material profit through time,
then it is all wasted and life has been
I believe that the cure for the dif
ficulties and sins about which individ

conflict and bloodshed lies in harmon
