An Extreme Case of Eczema
Winston-Salem. N. C July 18. 190.
Mr. J. T. Shuntrlne, Savannah. Qa.
Dear Sir: Nothing give me greater
pleasure than when I am singing the
praise of Tetterlne. I consider It beyond
doubt one of the best skin preparations
ever offered the suffering ones.
Some ten years ago no mortal coula
have been In a worse state from eczema
than myself. I had tried every remedy,
blood purifier, skin salve, yet I seemed
worse, unttl I was one mass of Itching
ores. Tlfe simply a burden. I could not
sleep. Could do no work. The physicians
could not help me.. I Was simply des
perate. Glancing over a newspaper I
received from a lady In Texas who wrote
you telling her condition and what Tet
terlne had done for her;, her case was so
much like mine that I concluded that 1
would try it. feeling that if. she could
receive so great a benefit it might help
me. After two or three applications 1
never saw such a. sudden change. I am
happy to say that I am wen again. My
case being so bad it took a lot of !t. l
have never known It to fall to cure ever?
case yet. I make a special offer to any
one suffering with Tetter. Ringworms
and Bczeraa, etc., that if It is used
properly and fails to cure, I will refund
their money. I have yet to repay any
one. Whenever I see any one here suf
fering from Tettev, Ringworm, etc., I
prevail on them to get a box. stating to
them that if it falls, come to me and get
their money back. I have had the pleas
ure of curing many with It.
Sincerely yours. P. S. Early.

The Beagle a Rabbbit Dog.
The beagle is the rabbit dog. He is
best adapted by size, pace, nose and
tongue for this work. Large hounds,
or even those of the harrier type,
cannot do the work so well and are
more at a loss on quick turns and
doublings, to say nothing of their
seeming something radically wrong
in pursuing bunny with dogs adoapt-
ed to larger and stronger jgame. The
beagle and the rabbit were made one
for the other, and properly done,
there is no better day to be had afield
than one with a good pack of these
little dogs. It is a pack you must
have. One dog or two or three are
not the same thing at all. Take sev
en or eight of the little fellows, well
matched, and go afield on foot and
get your game. Then Molly Cotton
tail will take on a new value in your
eyes. To see a pack once, running
swiftly, tonguing merrily, picking up
the turns, at a loss for a moment,
scattering, catching the trial, packing
again on the re-discovered scent and
finally running thir game to the death
in the open, will convert you, first in
to a beagle lover, and second, into an
advocate of hard condition in the
field. Todd Russell in The Outing
Magazine for February. So.-8-'09.

GOV. KIU 1 11 IB
Sends Message to the Legis
lature. IN ACCORD WITH PLATFORM
Urges Amendment of Anti-Trust
Law of 1907-Give Attorney Gen
eral Adequate Opportunities.
After a brief introduction of the
subject the Governor says: "An
opinion has been placed before the
people in the press, that the present
law cannot be enforced, though noth
ing was suggested to strengthen or
render the law enforceable. I con
ceive that whatever difficulty exists,
is largely in the machinery for its
enforcement. Two years ago many
able legislators thoroughly consider
ed anti-trust legislation. All realiz
ed the difficulty of the State's copiug
with the evil against which their ef
forts were aimed. A bill was con
sidered, which by its supporters was
thought the best that could be devis
ed. It became a law in all its es
sential features save one."
He quotes from the last Demo
cratic platform these words:
" Private monopolies should be de
stroyed. Conspiracies by prospective
purchasers to put down or keep down
the prices of articles produced by the
labor of others, should be made crim
inal, and all persons or corporations
entering into such conspiracies should
The Governor says the opportunity
has come to muke such conspiracies
criminal and to prescribe punishment
for such conspirators.
"Failure to make such conspiracies
criminal can be justified only in case
it can be clearly demonstrated that
the convention was wrong in adopting
such a platform.
"A mere statement of the proposi
tion that a conspiracy by purchasers
to put down the price of an article
produced by the labor of others, is
wrong,, is so clear and convincing -n
its simplicity, that it would seem idle
to argue its justice to any American
legislative body. Every community
which produces more than its people
consume, must suffer tne oppression
that comes from any artificial de
pression of the price of its products.
A community producing peanuts, cot
ton, tobacco, wheat, lumber, or other
article in excess of its ofn consump
tion of such article, its unjustly de
prived of material wealth, hindered
in its industrial development, weaken
ed in its revenues, injured in its edu
cational progress, and crippled in all
its social life, by conspiracy of men
or coropration, which puts down the
price of such article. The univesaily
acknowledged principle of self de
fense, applicable to States as indivi
duals, would destroy a conspiracy so
damaging in its effect and so general
in its blight. The duty of repressing
wrong and protecting those who cau
not protect themselves, requires the
law makers to put the whole power of
the State against such conspiracies. I
therefore recommend that the General
Assembly comply with that declara
tion, because it is right and ought to
be the law, and because the dominant
party is pledged to its enactment;
and I also recommend that the put
ting down or keeping down by pur
chasers of the prices of articles pro
duced by the labor of others, in pur
suance of such conspiracy, be made
"Assuming, as I do assume, that
the General Assemb1 will amend the
law in acordance with the specific
platform utterances, I recommend
that the Attorney General be given
the power and charged with the duty
to institute action, civil or criminal,
in the Superior Courts of this State
in Wake county, or in any other coun
ty of his selection, in any and all
cases of violation of any of our anti
trust laws, or any amendments to
them. Where such laws are violated
most, it may be difficult to have suc
cessful prosecutions, on account of
the fear and favor which the wrong
doers inspire and exert in the com
imunity. ' "I m of the opinion that after per
fecting, as far as possible, our anti
trust laws, declaring the offenses and
prescribing the penalties, it is im
portant and even essential, to confer
upon the Attorney General the duty
of undertaking its enforcement, and
of selecting the venue subject to the
power of the court to removal in its
dicrptinn. for troTer cause, and of
giving him every proper authority oL

that their tires have only been pumped up once or twice in r whole season. They weigh no more than
an ordinary tire, the puncture resisting qualities being given by several layers of thin, specially

or soft roads is overcome by the patent "Basket Weave" tread which prevents all air from bring
squeezed out between the tire and the road thus overcoming all auction. The regular price of tlj?
