GONE WITH COTTON CASH.
Reeve? Advised Farmers to "Hold"
and Stored their Bales.
Griffin, Ga., Nov. 29.-J. E.
Reeves, head of a chain of supply
stores and cotton warehouses at Grif
fin, Vaughn, Jackson, Glenville and
NOrcross, has disappeared, carrying
with him a sum of money supposed
to be over $100,000. Most of this
he procured by selling cotton stored
In his warehouses by farmers who
were holding it for fifteen cents.
For weeks Reeves has been urging
.'arroeYs to hold cotton, and his ad
vice was generally followed, so that
there are hundreds of bales in his
warehouses. Reeves disappeared
four days ago, and his continued ab
sence caused investigation which re
vealed that he had sold over 1,000
bales of stored cotton.
In addition, he had collected thou
sands of dollars for fertilizers, which
he uever turned over to the fertilizer
companies. Sheriff Head, of Griffin,
loses $10,000 by the flight of Reeves,
who is indebted to Atlanta banks and
firms for over $30,000. The heaviest
loss, however, falls on farmers. In
consequence, the "holding" move
ment is not popular at present.
Reeves is a young man and has
been regarded as a great financier.
Receivers are in charge of his stores
and warehouses, but there ls little
left. A reward has been offered for
his apprehenden.

Good Cough Medicine for Children.
The >ason for coughs and colds
is now at hand and too much, care
cannot be used to protect the chil
dren. A child is much more likely
to contract diphtheriaorscarletfever

cure his cold the less the risk. Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy ls the sole
reliance of many mothers, and few
of those who have tried lt are will
ing to use any other. Mrs. F< F.
Staroher, of Ripley, W. Va., says: "I

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for
mv children and it has always given
good satisfaction." This remedy
contains no opium or other narcotic
