?On 6atarday evening; a total
eclipse of the moon occurred. The
night was almost perfectly c:ear and
the beaotifal sight was uuobscured by
elouds. The eclipse began ar. about
6.30 and lasted for two Iiours. The
dark shadow across the face of the
moon gave it a strange appearance
and as tne shadow grrew and gradually
covered the moon the light wa% weird
and peculiar in the extreme. M about
8 o'clock me moon was in total ccaipse
and it was several hours before she
shone forth in all of her brilliancy.
The eclipse had been predicted and
there were few who did not witness
it.
"One Mincte Cough Cure is the best

H. N. Williams, Gentryville, Ind.
Never fails. It Is the only harmless
remedy that gives immediate results.
Cures coughs, colds, hoarseness,cronp,
pneumonia, bronchitis and all throat
and lung troubles. Its early use prevents

?A negro man stole a package out
of the Caldwell Dry Goods Co.'s store
on Thursday. The package was missed
after the negro left the store and had
returned to bis home near White Oak.
Some one was sent to the negro's
home to fiad oat whether he had taken
the package, his conduct while in the
store haviDg aroused the suspicion of i
the clerks, but he denied having taken
it. On Friday however he was in
town and in the store again where he
was cornered and was given the 1
choice of paying the value of the pack
age or being arrested. He paid the
mo ,ey and was released.
?This is the last week of work for

Did you ever try to dodge the ?
rain-drops? Did not succeed ;
very well, did you? It's just j,
as useless to try to escape from j
the germs of consumption, xou i
can't do it. They are about us
on every band and we are con- i
stantly taking them into our
lungs.
Then why don't we all hav3 '
this disease? Simply because 1
these germs cannot gain a foot- i
hold in a strong throat and
iungs. It's when these are
weak that the germs master.
The body must be weH supplied
with fat. The danger comes j
when the blood is poor and the
body is thin. If your cough does
not yield, and your throat and j
* vo;i 3
lungs leei raw aim ^v. w, ^
