C., and the United States Agricultural De partment. Our farmers should be deeply in terested in the three features that will be demonstrated at each stop made by this train, viz , Live stock, Drainage and Improed Parm Im plements. This is a day of progress and the country that is content with the old methods will have to take a back seat. People in other walks of life have realized that they must apply the latest methods or fail. There is as much, or more, room for improved methods on the farms as in other lines of business, and we are sure that our farmers will take advantage of every opportunity that is offered them. This train will arrive in Williams ton on July 26th. at 2:30 p. m., and remain until 7:30 the following morning. Williamston is the only town entered by the train in this immediate section, Scotland Neck being the nearest point. The farmers in the County should make it convenient to be here that day and examine the improved breeds of stock, etc., which the train will exhibit. It is a splendid opportunity and the people should take advantage of it.

C., FRIDAY, JUYL 5, 1912 A Sunday Disaster The waters of the Roanoke Rivtr claimed twto more victims on Sun day. There was to be a funeral service at Cedar Landing conducted by the colored Odd Fellows and a party of tweutv arranged to go from here. Fernie Howard with a couple of gas boats to which a raft was tied, this being made on two small flats, carritd the party down. The return trip was made with safety until about opposite the old railroad wharf. The night was dark and rainy and tne flats leaky. About half-past eignt o'clock one of the flats suddenly sank and the en tire party was thrown into the rush ing waters. There were cries for help which were beard in the town. The men clung desperately to the sides of the gas boats. Those who could swim reached the shore in safety and others were brought out except two, Thad Woolard and Ben Baker. The former has been in the employ of J. L. Woolard for years and was one of the chief workmen in Woolard "s shop. Baker was employed by Andersod Bros on their farm. Both men were in* dustrious and had families. The disaster brought sadness into the hearts of many relatives and friends. Richard Smith and N. S. Godard, who were with Howard on the boat, reached home in safety. Dynamite wis used to try to raise the bodies on Monday, but without avail. Crowds of people stood on the banks all through the day looking for the dead men. Tuesday the bodies were recov ered near the scene of the disaster. Monday Night Dance An impromptu dance was given in tbe Masonic Hall on Monday night which proved very enjoyable. Tbe weather was cool and Alexan der's Band furnished selections suitable to each of tbe favorite dances, and those participating found the hours pleasant until one o'clock.

This May 28th, 1-912. A. Corey. In these days of high cost of liv ing, a medicine that gets a man up out of bed and able to work in a few days is a valuable and welcome remady. John Heath, Michigan Bar, Cal., had kidney and bladder trouble, was confined to his bed, unable to turn without help. "I commenced using Foley Kidney Pills and can truly say I was re lieved at once." His example is worth foHowing. Saunders & Fow den. * HASSELL ITEMS Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Salisbury attende.l the Uuion at Roberson ville Sunday.

D. ol Edinburgh University, a fel low of the Royal College of Sur geons of England, and a well known London surgeon, claims to have made a discovery which, if established, will mark another wonderful epoch in tbe history of surgery. Briefly, it almost means tbe end ot human pain, for by the injection of a simple non-poisonous combination of two drugs tbe most awful accident or the most dreadful surgical operation can immediatelv after its occurrence be rendered painlej«. Dr. Ross calls the attention of the medical world to his achieve ment in a letter printed in this week's issue of the Lancet. He says: "I have discovered that wide ap plication of a local anesthetic can kill the pain which follows the most severe bodily accident or dur ing and after the most severe surgi cal operation. I have found an absolutely harmless, nonpoisonous antidote to pain and shock which may tfe used without the slightest fear of local or general detriment to the sufferer. "It is a preparation of a i per cent solution of quinine and urea hydrochloride. Experiments for some time past have always been successful. The method is simple, and be used by any intelligent per sons." The perpnration is very cheap; 12 cents will cover it. There is an injection into the pa tient of anesthetized chloroform or ether in the ordinary way, and then five to ten cubic centimeters of the perparatiou distributed in the nerve supply of the part concerned, which will produce a total loss of the sensation of pain. "After the operation effects there should be a single application by multiple injection of the parts at period's varying from 24 hours to a fortnight, when the operation or injury will have been recovered from to Buch an extent that paia will not be normally present"—Sel. "How did the doctor persuade you to stop smoking?" "Made his bill so big I couldn't afford to bu7 more tobacca." —Mil- waukee Sentinel. sr.oo a Year in Advance OAK CITY ITEMS Miss Thelma Beverly is visiting 1 her sisters, Mrs. Charlie and Wille Hurst.

Foley Kidney l'ills are a uric acid solvent and are effective for tbe various forms of rheumatism. Saunders & Fowden.
