Ist. That by his death tbebank
has lost a trusted and efficient of

Received Appointment
" 1
Mr. Rob?rt H. Balhbury, ex
mcinber os the Board of County
Commissioners, has been appointed
Director of the Central Hospital at
Raleigh, succeeding Dr. John D.
Biggs, whose resignation was ten
dered and accepted. Dr. Biggs
was chosen to succeed his father,
the late Dawson Biggs, who was
for years one of the ablest members
of the Board of Directors. The
selection of Mr. Salsbury is a wise
one, as his interest in the good ol
his State never flags, and bis long
service in the public affairs cf Mar
tin County is an asset upon which
he can draw in discharging the
duties of Director of the Hospital.
A Mitchell, a gtnral merchant
near Bagdad, Ky., writes us:-"I
think Foley Kidney Pills ore of
the greatest kidney medicines there
is. My daughter was in terrible
shape with kidney trouble aod I
got her to take it. She Is comple
tely cored now. I think it one of
the greatest medicines made."
Saunders & Fowden.
Bank of Jamesvilk
The Directors of the Bank of
Jamesville met Tuesday at the
banking bouse in Jamesville. A
careful survey of '.he business of
the institution developed the fact
the increase of business over that
of last yesr was s hundred percent.
This is a fine showing and is highly
satisfactory to officers, stockholders
and patrons. The institution is a
convenient help to Jamesville, and
is s credit to the benking business
of the State and County of tfartln
•Huntsville, Ala. W. C. Pollard,
a well known citizen, says.—"l
have used Foley's Honey & Tar
Compound and found it a most ex
cellent preparation. In fact, it
suits my case better than any cough
syrup I have ever uaed and I have
used a good many, for I am now
over seventy years old.'' Saunders

Our Orphan Home
The Thanksgiving Proclamation
of the President, which has just
been published to the people of this
great country, calling upon us to
stop our usual vocations lonj
enough to consider frcm whence
comes the unprecedented prosperity
which we as a nation have been
enjoying, comes with a voice of
authority. Truly every heart can
find genuine gratitude to the Great
Giver of all good.
While your minds are direct®! to
the consideration of the Source
from whence these blessings come,
and a feeling of thanksgiving is
thereby engendered for the good
ness of our Heavenl.f Father, we
feel that this is the best time to
bring to the attention oi our read
ers the needs of the various orphan
homes in our state, where the little
ones who have lost their earthly
protectors are being cared fir and
These children receive the great
blessing of these homes through
your generosity. They are depen
dent upon you. Their numbers
are increasing, as are the advanta
ges they receive, which necessitate
larger contributions from the peo
ple. God has blessed our people
and he expects us in turn to help
bless our homeless little ones.
Nobly have the people of North
Carolina measured up to their dnty
in this tegard in the past, and we
believe they will not be any less
mindful of the needs of our orphan
children this thanksgiving seasrn
than they have been in the past.

Money Promptly Refunded if Dod
son's Liver-Tone Fails to take
Place of Calomel
The Saunders & Fowden drug
store sells Dodson's Liver-Tone as
a perfect substitute for calomel. If
you try one bottle and find that it
not just as sure in its action as cal
omel and at the same time gentler
and without the bad after effects of
calomel, please call and get your
money back. It will be given you
promptly. Dodson's Liver-Tone is
a vegetable liquid with a pleasant
taste, that livens up the liver, midly
but suiely, instead of whipping it
into action as the strong chemical
calomel docs. It is used by both
children and grown-nps for consti
pation and inactive liver.
That is why the Saunders &
Fowdea drug store is willing to
guarantee it absolutely, not with
another bottle, but with your money
back. Isn't a medicine with a
guarantee like this worth a trial?
