WOULD it not be a creditable thing for
the colored people of the city to make
up a small sura and contribute to the
proposed $100,000 Y. M. C. A. building.
We know of several who would be glad
to put in their mites in such a good
cause. There need not be any blow nor
blustei about the matter, any who favor
the proposition are requested to call at
this office and leave their names.
THERE is some trouble for many folks
to determin whether to spell "receive"
and "believe" with i or i e. There
need not be any trouble if such persons
will only think of the woik "lice" and
divide it in the middle and fit it in the
word. Neither will any one have any
trouble about getting photographs at J.

apolis, lor $3 per dozen. N. B.The
round tiip fare of Ul patrons from St.
Paul will be paid.
R. T. LYLES, whose advertise
ment of real estate appears elsewhere
wishes to state that he has since his ad
vertisement was placed in the APPEAL,
sold twenty of the sixty Como lots, and
not one of them has been sold to a
colored person. now intends to sell
only twenty more of them at tie figure
stated. When they are all gone some
who have had this golden opportunity
offered will realize what they have lost,
when it is too late. So those who con
template buying should strike while the
iron is hot. He also has some lots for
$350 each on the same easy terms which
purchasers would do well to look up.
Remember delays are dangerous. Buy
while you can. Don't let these oppor
tunities slip by unnoticed.
A M. E Clmrcli.

The refusal of the Clarendon and

A Bad Nasal Organ.
For over four years I have been a
great sufferer from a terrible form of
Nasal Catarrh* I was greatly annoyed
with a constant roaring in my head and
my hearing became very much impair-
The discharge from my nose was pro
fuse and very offensive, and mv general
health impaired. I tried most all prom
inent physicians, but they did not cure
me, and I used various advertised pre
parations without benefit.
One day I chanced to read a remark
able article written by a prominent citi
zen of Athens, Ga., stating that he had
been permanently cured by the use of
eight bottles of B. B. B.Botanic Blood
Balm. Being skeptical on the subject. I
wrote to him on the subject and receiv
ed a most encouraging answer to the
effect that he had been cured long
enough to be thoroughly satisfied that
no return of the disease would ensue.
I then sent to the drug store of T. E.
Smith & Bro., and purchased B. B. B.,
and to my utter astonishment and satis
faction, the use of ten bottles has re
stored my general health, stopped the
roaring sensation, entirely healed and
cared the nasal catarrh and I am proud
to recommend a blood remedy with
such powerful curative properties.
I shall continue its use a little longer
and feel confident that I will be entirely
cured of one of the most obstinate cases
of nasal catarrh in the country.
The business men of our town know
xf my case.
