and are all run down, have ailments
produced by a diseased or Impoverish

bodies need nourishment. Town
Talk Tablets cure all these symptoms
as if by magic. They cure the period'
dical sufferings that are peculiar to
women. It makes them healthy and
happy, because It puts new life into
their system, new energy into their

riages from our energetic emba!mer,
D. A. iBradburry.
Tor a long time I was In a ter
rible run-down condition with female
trouble, which my physicians called
different names. I suffered terribly
at periods, and could get no' relief. I
heard of Town Talk Tablets, which
a number ot my neighbors were tak
ing, every one of whom bad some
good report to make about them, so
I got a bottle. They helped me at
once, so I got another. After the
second the pains left me, and my old
periodical suffering came no more,
kept at it, taking several bottles, but1
now am entirely cured. I do my own
work, and never have a pain, I am,
gaining in strength and flesh every;
day. There is certainly nothing made
that can equal Town Talk Tablets.

Mrs. Fannie Thompson and daugh
cers, Beulah and Sarah, have gone to
Indianapolis to make their future
home. Mrs. Louise E. Daniels of
Lynchburg passed through on her way
to Chattanooga to visit the annual
conference. Mrs. Emma Cartwright
has returned borne from an extended
trip north. She visited Cincinnati,
Indianapolis, Louisville and several
other cities and reports a delightful
time. Judging by the number of let
ters she Is receiving, written by mas
culine hands, she must have made a
very favorable impression wherever
she went. Mr. Cleveland Buchanan.,
formerly of Shelbyvllle now of Los
Angeles, Cal., was a pleasant caller
at the public school. He was recent
ly graduated from the Officers Train
ing Camp at Dcs Moines. His ad
dress was very interesting indeed.
Rev. J. W. Sebastian, the new M. E.
pastor at Tullahoma, was present and
also delivered an able address. Rev.
Dowell of the M. E. Church was also
! a recent visitor and made a brief talk.
Another visitor with a long German
name, claiming to represent the
United States Government, paid us a
visit and took cordons notes and a
diatrram of the building. The princi
pal failed to call for his credentials,
and is now wondering If .he is prepar
ing to drop some bombs down on the
public school building. The prompt
ness with which the Knights of Py
thias paid the death claims of the late
J. P. Cartwright ($350) has added to
the popularity ot this most excellent
order. Alias Kathleen Davidson will
leave in a few days for Evansville,
Ind., and will permanently reside
there unless a certain person is soon
called to FTance. Mrs. Theora Camp
bell will visit the A. M. E. Confer
ence at Nashville. It is rumored that

to us we had no church, the church
having been burned more than a year
ago, and the members scattered until
our membership was very small, but
he went to work with pluck and vim,
trusting in God, the greatest leader
of all. And now he can say as did
one of old, viz., "I came, I saw, I con
quered." The St. James ' C. M. E.
