Col. Boone expects lo bo in ,

make his deal.
Reports have been circulated
and published by an ftenroon
paper to the effect that it was }
quite likely that Col. Boone would
be in the city by the 17th
instant, and also that Knoxville ,
aud Knox county would be asked
for a large appropriation for the
Black Diamond road. President
M. L. Ross, of this division of the
road, told a reporter for The
Tribune last night that he had
heard nothing of any such
intention and that Col. Boone had
never mentiong to this effect to

had no doubt but that the road

Tidings From The Churches.
Parksville, Nov. 18.-We had a
fine day here last Sunday; it was
observed as missionary day by our
school. The children acted their
parts well, having been drilled by
our efficiout teachers, Mr. Rupart
Smart and Miss Luva Agnew. Col
lections were taken for Homo,For
eign and State Missions receiving
from school and church more than
$20 as its part. I think that most of
the churches in the old Edgefieid
bave improved in missoinary spirit
and work during the y<.ar. Our
resident miui.nters are J. P. Meal
ing, L. R. Gwaltney, P. P.Blalock,
Kreps, J. T. Littlejohn, W. A.
Hart, and myself. I hear that Bro.
G. H. Burton will move in soon.
Bro. J. S.Jordan, of the Abbeville
Association, preaches to two
churches in the Ed^efield Associa
tion. Mountain Creek has gone
back to two Suudays a month in
stead of one.
We aro delighted with our new
tenchers, Mr. Rupart Smart, of
Troy, and Miss Luva Agnew, of j
Donalds. They also add very much
to our religious work.-G. W. Bus
Bey in Baptist Courier.
ONE OF TWO WAYS.
The bladder was created for one pur
pose, namely, a receptacle for the
urine, andas such it is not liable to
any form of disease except by one of
two ways. The first way is from im
perfect action of the kidneys. Thc
second way is from careless local treat
ment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys is the chief cause of bladder
troubles, t?o thu womo, like the blad
der, was created for one purpose, and
if not doctored too much is not liable
to weakness or disease, except in rare
?ases. It is situated back of and very
;dose to the bladder, therefore any
pain, disease or inconvenience (nani
fested in the kidneys, back, bladder or
usinary passage is often, by mistake
attributed to female weakness or
womb trouble of some sort. The error
is easily made and may bc as easily
avoided. To lind out correctly, set
your urine aside for 24 hour; a
sediment or settling indicates kidney
3r bladder trouble. The mild and the
?xtraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's y
Swamp Koot, the great kidney e
ind bladder remedy, is soon real- 1
?zed. If you need a medicine you
should have the best. At druggists,
