Mrs. Reua Jones
The body of Mrs. Rena Sitteraon
Jones was brought here Saturday
from Raleigh, where she died on
February rsth. 1912. She was
born in Williainstoii, January 23rd.
1874, being the second daughter of
, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Sitterson. In
; May 1893, she was wedded to Mr.
John S. Joues, cf Clinton, the late
Rev. Thorns# B. liansthton. per
forming the ceremony. Several
years after her marriage, she suf
fered from a nervous trouble ami
husband placed her in the State
Hospital for treatment/. Up to a
few years ago •;« would make an
annual visit to her parents here
and expressed pleasure at beinf
home once more. Many friend*'
remember her as a vonng woman
full of the joy of living until
tion came. Her death coming so
swiftly upon that of her mother,
malces it sadder for the aged father
and two brothers.
Early in life she had joined the
Methodist Church, and cn the ar
rival of the train Saturday, the
body was placed in the Church
here and the funeral wen- heid at
3 o'clock by the pastor Rev. Ro

Your Money Back if You
are nqt Satisfied with
the Medicine We
Recommend
We are so positive that our
remedyfwill permanently relieve con
stipation, no matter bow chronic it
inay be, that we offer to furunh the
medicine at otir expense should it
fall to peoducc satisfactory results.
It is worse than useless to at
tempt to cure constipation with
cathartic drugs. Laxatives or cath
artics do much harm. They cauße
a reaction, irritate, and weaken the
bowels and tend to make coastlpa
tion more chronic. Besides, their
use becomes a habit that is danger
ous. Constipation is caused by a
weakness of the nerves and mus
cles of the large intestine or descend
ing colon. To expect permanent
relief you must therefore tone up
and strengthen these organs and
restore them to healthier activity.
We want you to try Rexall Or
derlies on oar recommendation.
They are exceedingly ptea«ant to
take, being eaten like candy, and
are ideal for children, delicate per
sons, and old folks, as well as for
the robust. They act directly cji
the nerves and muscles of the bow
els. They apparently have a neu
tral action on other associate organs
or glands. They do not purge,
cause excessive looseness, nor create
any inconvenience whatever. They
may be taken at any time, day or
night. They will positively relieve
chronic or habitual constipation, if
not of surgical variety, and the
myriads of assaciate or dependent
cbionic ailments, if taken with re
gularity for a reasonable length of
time. 12 tablets, 10 cents; 36 tab
lets, 25 cents; 80 tablets, 50 cents.

Public Roads
1
Even with a high-powered auto-,
mobile that could keep up a pace of ]
90 miles > day indefinitely, it would :
take a man more than 65 years to
cover all the public road* io the j
ITuited States. A yoong man of
twenty starring out to accomplish
thh tremendous task would be 85 1
before Le had covered the last mile j
of pnblic highway in this country. i
Alter an Investigation extending
over many months. Logan Waller
Pagt, Director ef the Office of Pub-:
lie Roads, has ascertained thatj
there arc now 2,199,14- miles off
pobhc roadsiu the United Stares, j
The figures include all the new.
roads built up to the year 1909. In '
IUO4 there were exactly 2,151,379.
It is apparent, therefore, that the
increased mileage of new roikds
within h period of about five years
has been 48,266.
"The Investigation just conclud
ed", said Director Page, in an in
terview, "shows conclusively that
the movement for the improvement
of public highways has obtained a
firm grip on the country'- The per
centage of roads which were really
improved, amounted to 7.14 in 1904,
while in 1909, to which year statis
tics are now available, the percent
age was 8.66.
"It is interesting to observe the
growth of improved methods in
road construction. For instance,
the total mileage of stone roads in
rso4 wa:i 36.818, while iu 190*; it
was 59,237. The total mileage of
gravel roads ia 1934 was r09,90j.
while in 1901) it was ouly 102,870.
This decrease in gravel roads, how
ever, was due to to a reclassification
of roads. Many of those reported
in 1904 to !>e of gravel proved to
be of some other substance, while
exaggerations were eliminated.
"The total mileage of snr.d clay,
brick, bituminous-macadam and;
other improved roadsr in 1904 was
6,806, while in 1909 the ir.ilerge
reached 28,372."

hours and more the wind reached
a velocity of fifty miles, perhaps,
greater. Citizens of the town were
unable to sleep and the Electric
Company shut off all currents foi

Dcmowslration Work
Secretary Wilson has received
the following report 011 Demdnstra
tion Work of the Depsrttnent in
! North Carolina:
Demonstration Work is only four
years old in North Carolina yet it
has become a power there for pro
gressive agriculture, and, through j
'this, tor the-general uplift of the
I home-life of the farmer,
j Many farmers, advanced In age,
(deplore the fact that Demonstration
j Work did not begin several decades
j ago so that they might live long (
enough to enjoy the fruits of its .
! teachings, thereby reaping the bene- ,
j tits oi more bountiful crops procluc
leil at a minimum ol cash and
'labor. Many farmers who have
itxeu i:i Lbu wjik one year state
as suciitssfui farmers they are
only one vear old.
1 ' * * '
J Tike vrork i- based upon sound,
1 well-tried and essentiul principles. (
'such a* a deep soil, plenty of
Ibumtiv improve*! seed, intensive '
~ cultivation, rotation of crops, etc.
I That the work is accomplishing the
j purpose for which it was designed,
jis shown in a numlier of ways. For
1 instance the average yield of corn
,j in North Caroliua, for the past
, j forty years has bt-en a little less
| than tifteen bushels per acre. The
; yields under Demonstration metli
jods were as follows: In t9JB, 37
, 1 busl?els per acie; iu 1909, 40
, bushels per acre, and iu 1910 (4,-
.j56 r acres) 43 bushels acre.
iThe records for 1911 ure not com
plete yet, but will probably be
.(greater than for 1910, iiotwitli
r standing the tact that a severe
drought cut off the yield through
j the central part of the State.
r j The Demonstration" Work stands
| for the growing on the farm every
thing needed, there iu the way of
, hoote snt»pl|er». Thu careful re
-1 cords kejH in the work sjjnur that
I the>e can be grown for very much'
! less than market prices. The tnat
j ter, therefore, is an economic one.
The organization In North Caro
lina, at present, consists of a State
. Agent, two District Agents, fifty
■ one local ageuts and oyer three
thousand farmers conducting de
, monstratioo plats averaging three
I acres each. The two largest demon
strations the past season were one
. of forty acres of corn that produced
. fifty bushels per acre and one of a
hundred acres of cotton that grew
, a bale and a quarter of cotton per
acre. The Demonstrators are sup
-1 ervised by the local agents who in
. turn are instructed by District aud
State Agents,
i The Demonstration YVork has
has hearty cooperation with the A,
& M. College, the Farmers' Union
; and other progressive organizations.
The Stale Department of Agricul
- ttire is now cooperating finaucially
. and otherwise. Local aid for the
work for the present season
i amounts to $15,000.00. This shows
that the people are interested in the
work. .
Taken as a whole the outlook is v
very bright for reaching and iu
flneuoinjj in a jir?',-tic.nl way the
