road hands were busily engaged in
putting down the track to the river,
they saw a flat car loaded with
heavy piling, came speeding down

some unknown reason, the car
which had been left on the track
near the power house, had started
off and the grade being steep, it
went down over the imperfect road
It was checked in time to prevent
' overturning, but hindered the work
considerably, as the temporary tres
tles were not safe for an engine to
go down and bring back the car.

An Ex-Con federate Dead
The body of Mr. Pem S Bowen
was brought here Saturday night
and taken to the house- of nis neice
Mis. J. H. Mi/.ell on West M.iin
Street. Mr. Bowen with his wife
and family had lived in Poplar
Point Township for years. Somej
time ago his health failed, and for
several months he had been living
with his daughter at Ayden, think
ing that a change would be benefi
cial. He enlisted in the 17th. Reg
iment, N. C. Troops, C. S. A., and
served faithfully during thestrnggle
between the States. lle was a com
rade of Mr. Tom Perry, of Will
iamston, during that period aud
thiy always occnpied a tent to
gether. He was the brother of J.
I). Boweu, Snpt., of the County
Home. Mrs. Bowen, the wife of
the dead, was too sick to realize
her husband's death at the time.
Tbe funeral was held on Sunday
and many friends and relatives paid
the last mark of respect to the com
rade who followed the fortunes of
tbe South during tbe four years of
heroism.
J. K. Cotton, 1303 No. Market
St., says.—"l heard of Foley Kid

case of kidney trouble. After tak
ing them a few days the pain left
my back, my kidneys regu
larly and tbe annoying bladder
trouble was cured. I gladly re
commend Foley Kidney Pills."

called to order by Rtv. C. W. How- |
ard, of Kinston The Convention j
sermon, which was delivered b" W. j
D. LaPrade, of Dmham, was j
masterly one, deep yet simple and j
plain.

the State, among them Richard j
Bagby, of Wilson; C. Manly Mor-j
ton, Winston-Salem: H. C. Boblett, I
Rocky Mount; Bernard P. Smith,!
Kinston; Dr. J. C. Caldwell, Pie-i-l
dent A. C. College, took prominent
places in the Convention. There
were others iti>c>, who did splendid
work during Convention hours.
The Sunday School Sessioi s w ere
presided over by R. V. Hope, State
Bible School Superintendent, of

best work of the Convention. The
speakers aud teachers who took
promineu! places on the program
weie: Mi&sLillieKarris, Cincinnati;
J. Randal! Fart is, Birmingham;
Robert M. Hopkins. National Bible
School Supt , of Cincinnati.

GIVE YOUR LIVER
A FAIR CHANCE
Stop Drugging it with Calomel;
Dodson's Liver Tone, a Veg-.
ctable Liquid Medicine, works
Without Harm

cure your liver troubles with the
pleasant tasting liquid, Dodson's
Liver Tone. Uon can get a large
bottle at Saunders & Fowden drug
store for fifty cents and every mem
ber of the family can use it. Dod
son's Liver Tone is an all vegeta
ble liver medicine that starts the
liver to act within a few hours and
has no bad after-effects. No re
striction of your habits or diet nec
essary.
Saunders & Fowden guarantees
it to be a perfect substitute for cal
omel and will give you your money
back if you are not pleased with the
medicine.
Get a bottle instead of calomel
