Three years ago I was In very bad

cough for a number of years and my
physician advised me to go West."
ays Mrs. John L. Stapler of Larkins
Hle, Ala. "I wrote my sister about
my condition. She Immediately sent
me a bottle (small size) of Lung-Vita
urging me to give it a trial. By the
time I had finished taking the bottle
I was beginning to feel like a new
woman, my oough was almost entire
ly gone. I then ordered a large bot
tle and when I had taken it I was
feeling so well, and mo cough at all,
that I did not get any more. I went
through the last two winters splendid
ly, something I had not done for years
The first week in December last I
ontracted a severe cold and my bron
chial tubes were terribly affected,
talk, and coughed badly. I dragged
along this way for a week or more,
then ordered a bottle of Lung-Vita
(which had I done In the beginning
would have saved me much suffering).
'I am now feeling well, with my voice
aj strong and clear as usual and
cough almost entirely gone.
"I cannot say enough in praise of
Lung-Vita, I only wish every one
cvtfetirg ifatm bronx'hibl or" lung
trouble would give it a trial. I
think It the grandest medicine in the
world and a God-send to humanity."

Wre arrived here from Fayetteville,
Tenn., April 17th and enjoyed a very
strengthening -meeting at the C. M.
E. Church the following Sunday, at
which place we were introduced by
the pastor to make a talk for the
Nashville Globe. We only spoke on
the same line as we did over at the
Baptist church a few Sundays ago.
The sajne were in the Globe of Mar
29th on Page 6, trying to get the Peo
ple to see the inspiration our chil-f
uren coum get rrom reading of the,
great men and women of the racel
in colored newspapers. We will re-
peat it again in our traveling around!
among our people, which is very!
frequent. We find that they- support
tne otner man s papers yet claim
they are not able to take our papers,
not even one. We tried to talk on
the line of colored enterprise. Mrs.
Annie Donlow, the mother of Mr. I.
H. Donlow, our assistant agent at
this place, who says he will do what1
lie can for the Globe, is visiting her,
daughter in Paducah, Ky. Miss Ida'
M. Jennings will be in this city the

ter i hen it was bad, boys. Boys,
save your money; the war is on. The
employees of the N. C. & St. U R. R.
Company, west of Nashville, received
another very nice increase of wages
from April. We hone war will end
but we are proud to believe it has
made conditions better in many
ways. The colored people seem to
be doing well in this part of the
country, owning laud In town and
in the country; and they are great
church people, but they are not so
religious as to be forgetful of ac
cumulating some of the world's goods
and wearing some slippers while
here on earth. As a whole, the Ne
groes of Benton County are a whit
behind the Negroes of any other
county. I am proud to say tho white
people here are not so prejudiced
that they overlook Negro education
but rather do all they can to promote
its welfare. Miss Nettie Strightlen
visited Hollow Rock Sunday and re
ports ' a pleasant trip.
