The short crops in the vicinity of Manning hare caused
prices this fall not to advance as they did last year.Now is the inves
tor's opportunity, as with reasonably good crops and prices next
year's land will go much higher. Others think as we do. And
here are two orders recently placed with us by two men from
.other counties, and the kind of men this county needs:
First. A farm. within easy reach of a high school and good
churches, properly improved and costing from five to ten thousand
Second. A farm of from one to two hundred acres, within
reach of a common school and good church, costing from three to
ive thousand dollars.
If you can't pay cash we will help you to borrow the money

They work in gangs. In the under

Young all, from sixteen to twenty-two,
rarely older. Where do they come
from? Everywhere. They grow on
the pavements of Paris, along the gut
.ters-foundlings or deserted children,
sons perhaps of that laboring class
which is on the edge of crime and beg
gary. The life of the Apache is short,
but for every one sent to the jail or
the guillotine two stand ready at the
door of the slums. They used to haunt
the den of the Pere Lunette.-From
"The Slums of Paris," by Vance
Thompson, in Outing Magazine.
Nurses and Cancer.
"I find the trained nurses brave
enough in most cases of contagious dis
ease." said a Brooklyn doctor, "but
there is one thing at which they balk."
"What's that," asked a friend-L
"No; cancer. They have all the un
trained woman's horror of that dis
ease. The most faithful of them will
go without an engagement for ,weeks
rather than take a cancer case. Yet
the peril is slight compared-with what
they face almost without thought"
"Isn't it contagious?"
"A malignant case Is if a scratched
hand is brought Into contact with the
cancer. Three cancers out of four,
however, are not malignant and can be
dressed without gloves safely. The
trained nurses balk at all of them."
Endorsed by a Mfister.
Rev. Parker IEmes, pastor of the
first M. E. church, South Hickory,- N.
C., says: "I have used Rydale's stomach
Tablets for indigestion and regard
them as a perfect remedy for this dis
ease. I take please in recommending
them to all sufferers from indigestion."
Use Rydale's Stomach Tablets for
your trouble and. you will join Dr.
Holmos in this strong endorsement.
These tablets will enable your stomach
to digest your food, and thus nourish
the body and prevent the partial starv
ation from which all dyspeptics suffer.
These tablets relieve disagreeable sym
ptoms at once. They will increase-your
strength and flesh almost from the first
day's use, and wilt soon restore you to
perfect health. W. E. Brown & Co.

Captain W. C. Wise. then chief of the

peace and the utterance of good will
toward men, but to inflict as much
mischief and destruction on human be

The Landlord Told His Literary ,Guest
How to Get Out.
In the days before the dawn of his
fame it was the practice of a certain
well known author to wander up and
down the land seeking what he might
devour in the way of suggestion and
local color. In this way he had drifted
into Arkaasas, "roughing it," and not,
as he expresses it, presenting an ap
peatance calculated to inspire a hotel
proprietor with unlimited confidence.
The only hotel in the town, a frame
,structure, seemed to have been built
upon the theory that there was plenty
of room straight up, but that ground
had to be bought, and the wanderer
was shown to a room on the third
floor. reached through many narrow
and winding passages. From the one
window it was a straight drop to the
